I think you mean "Hahahaha, food producers in the EU can't get their export paperwork right."

Because that's what TFA is saying. That if the UK customs refuse entry to shipments where the paperwork hasn't been completed properly they'll be sending so much back that stores will run out.

My dad, who's now in his seventies, recalls his grandfather bemoaning politicians who never seemed to remember that the UK can't feed itself.

I hope never to see food kitchens in my lifetime, but given the growth in food banks I'm starting to wonder...

Nice try. Either you are outright lying and know it, or you cannot read.

The problem is on the UK side -- they've slapped down onerous paperwork on EU imports, only recently revealed, and do not have enough customs agents to look through them anyway.

This is the fault of the Brits. What's truly concerning is the consquence is simply not eating. Once again it shows the inequitable burden of Brexit to each side. The EU has problems getting goods from Britain and... it's like some Stilton cheese and some leeks. The UK has problems getting goods form the EU and it's barren shelves.

The problem, as we've said from the start, is the UK cannot feed itself. And they've just shoved away a massive continent just next door. Smart stuff there.

The real result will be flooding the British marketplace with chlorinated chickens and other shoddy American products. Turns out the U.S. has really poor food standards, the EU has high standards. The Tories really planned on tucking their little chickie-bird bodies under the gargantuan wing of Donald Trump and reap enormous awards in his shiatted-out detritus. Problem is he ain't around anymore.

There is probably a 1000% increase in forms that are needed to be filled out. Factor in human error and there will be an increase in mistakes as well.  Brexit caused this, nothing else.   Now they predict food shortages because of incompetence and human error that was not factored in.

"One senior industry figure said: "The worry is that if we go ahead with more checks and move to checks on imports, then exporters will not be prepared and on this side we are not ready for that either. There is not the infrastructure in place yet or the number of customs officials necessary to carry all this out. We have already seen exports badly affected. The next nightmare could be imports."


Sounds like a bunch of fools in the UK didn't really plan very well for Brexit and now imports will probably be as badly effected as exports.

Oh yeah, soooo hilarious that the EU food producers can't get the paperwork right.  Because THAT is the real issue, and the UK not being able to feed themselves is just something to be brushed under the rug.

You missed the point completely.

EU farmers mess up their paperwork and the entire UK has to loosen import restrictions and checks to ensure we can feed ourselves.

The EU should just embargo food exports to the UK for a few months, then send over a few soldiers to claim what used to be the United Kingdom as North France-East Ireland.

Its like they should negotiate some sort of trade treaty, maybe even create an independent, but democratically elected body to create the trade standards and enforce them so border checks aren't needed. They could even create a standard of exchange for goods so that money manipulations couldn't ruin the local market and allow for easier travel and immigration for member country citizens to move for work, creating economic opportunities for those in poor member countries to provide cheap labor in highly developed countries and/or those requiring cheap labor.

Naw! Better to fight over paperwork and who gets to overfish waters that are already overfished while the country starves. Not like they don't have the fat to spare while the rich look for new tax havens and money laundering schemes before the EU pass a law requiring reciprocity in banking standards for all intractions.

\the children don't have the fat to spare or the basic nutrition, but a party of dumb wants more dumb adults

Well, ain't that a 100% proof that Brexitannia now has their own laws in their own hands, and can unilaterally determine that EU food quality and safety is sufficient completely on its own instead of being subjected to it by the Commie Brussels?

The UK can't feed it self. It hasn't been able to forever.

Guess what, exporters can choose not to deal with the UK, or demand a higher price for the same product.

That's happening today, and since, the UK can not feed itself, it has no leverage in this situation. You'll eat what is supplied to you, at the prices charged to you. Eat it, or suck it up.

IMHO the pro-Brexiters asked the wrong people.

They asked /their/ farmers, who obviously thought it would be "no problem", and "full of win". Well, yeah, for British farmers.

But no, the UK can not feed itself.

So they should have asked, say Danish farmers, who said, and I quoted them, "this is going to affect the prices and availability of produce in the UK, this is going to suck". If you showed that to a Brexiter, he would gloat, "haha, this will suck for Danish farmers", as if they're not connected to them in any way.

As it obviously turns out, the people who supply your food, are the ones you should ask. It doesn't help the situation when Bob mocks them "for not filling out the paperwork", because the end result is the same. The farmers are changing their production to target other products and markets.

Bob et al will never admit that variety and prices will be affected in the UK, in a very negative way, never.

Don't worry, the Danish farmers, the ones I am familiar with, are fixing this, as they said they would.

The products will be streamlined, ie. less varied, and cost more. Ie. exactly what they warned.

No longer can they make their uniform products, and export them all over the EU. No, the UK needs its own special products, with its own special paper work. This means one thing exactly.

Given that the EU can easily feed itself, food from the UK has to be really special for anyone in the EU to be interested in it.

Stilton for example I guess. Mostly Stilton, since Ireland makes Cheddar.

About 25% of the UKs exports come from brands protected under the EU protection of origin. Its unclear to me whether the EU still has an interest in protecting that, they might, if they have an agreement about the UK doing the same.

But who cares, the UK can't mass produce food, even to meet their own needs.

A) of course they couldn't. We grow what it's efficient to grow to maximise our productivity. Farmers could barely break even, let alone sell at a profit with some crops. On top of that, yields of the other crops would be insufficient, we can only supply 30-40% of the food we eat, 70-80% with rationing (based on WW2 rationing)

Imports and experts are essential for modern farming methods.

Oddly enough, the recipe was brought to Denmark by Austrian bakers, mostly from Vienna. So we call it Wienerbread.

Danes perfected it, probably because we got the butter thing down. Its bread and butter layered after all, with sugar. So yeah, you can pluck it right of the bushes during summer and early fall.
