A Different Bias | Leaked emails: Britain doesn't need farmers

(10:55) Brexit was always going to be devastating for the British farming and fishing industries, but leave supporters did not believe it. But a sensational leak this weekend has revealed that a Treasury advisor has emailed to say that the UK economy will not suffer serious effects from the loss of farming and fishing in Britain.

" Patrick Minford, the Brexiteers’ favoured economist, wants shops flooded with cheap imports floating free on global commodities markets, unfettered by regulatory checks, with no tariffs or protection for home produce. Cheap food, promised by Jacob Rees-Mogg, will please consumers and Minford is sanguine about farmers, fishers and most British manufacturers going to the wall. That’s a price worth paying, a valid trade-off for market extremists, who are careless about food security, happy for us to grow nothing ourselves, leaving us wholly dependent on world markets. Minfordites are untouched by the romance of farming or the pull of manufacturing – shrugging them off as relatively small parts of the economy. Finance and services are the only future. "

looks like planning for no-deal to me. and that means goodbye agriculture, goodbye fishing, goodbye manufacturing.

still, they won so we should stop moaning....or gloating.
