JW - good morning
Thanks for the link m8 - interesting reading.
Saw that the real source wasn’t ‘apple news’ but is really from the Independent (so-called but in reality a ‘Remain’ rag) written by Rob Merrick.
In addition to your quoted bits of speculation above, you somehow missed the last bit of the article giving the Government’.s position
“We have interventions that are aimed to support them and their incomes.”
But the department for the environment, food and rural affairs (Defra) disputed the analysis, saying: “The cash total for farm support will be protected until 2022, even in the event of a no-deal Brexit.
“We will also intervene to provide direct support to boost some sectors in the unlikely event this is required.”
On the threat of mass slaughter of animals, the spokesperson added: “We have also been clear that a widespread cull of livestock is absolutely not something that the government anticipates, nor is planning for, in the event of no deal.”
Thought this might give an element of balance. I hope you agree that you wouldn’t like other readers here to get the impression you are in any way biased!
