    How will you know?

    Not being snarky... my understanding is if the chicken pizza is made in the UK then it will be labelled as made in the UK... and you won't know any different as to the country of origin... after all, many restaurant chains now serve halal meat unlabelled and most people happily buy it unconcerned.

    Does anyone seriously think that we will NOT be eating chlorinated chicken soon.
    If the EU decide that UK food standards are dropping, they will put a tariff on UK meat exports as that would be a clear case of not playing on a level field.

    If the UK lowers minimum wage we will receive a EU tariff.
    If the UK lowers the minimum legal holiday requirement, we will receive a tariff.

    All done and dusted by December 31. Yeah, right ...

    Oh, what, and no-one saw this coming?

    Oh, I forgot. Anyone who said anything about this sort of stuff was just spreading 'project fear'... Ahh well.

    You don't have to eat chicken pizza. I'll be buying only British chicken that I've bought raw and cooked myself. I'm already much more careful than I used to be about where I buy meat and what it is.

    It's is insane to be shipping foodstuffs round the globe that can be produced here.

    I never eat meat on a pizza. I’ll often go for the vegetarian options when eating out. What chicken I do buy, I check the origins: chicken bits from Waitrose usually - from British farms. Sure, I might occasionally get caught out, but I’ll be doing my best not to be.

    Chicken pizza was an example... it could be chicken curry, chicken stirfry... any pre-packaged food which has been assembled in the UK

    What, not "cooked" or "lovingly-prepared"? Brilliantly accurate.

    ..."hand made" ... "lovingly crafted by artisan chefs"...

    Given the US ambassador's defence of chlorinated chicken and US drivers who kill on our roads as they can't tell right from left, am l alone in thinking the last thing we want is a closer relationship (or trade deal) with the US?

    But we were assured this will not happen! :eek::rolleyes::mad:
    Great start.

    Actually, we're OK. We won't have to EAT it.
    Just EMBRACE it!!
    Dead chicken snogging here we come! ;)

    The US ambassador to Britain has said that British farmers need to embrace chlorinated chicken, ahead of Brexit talks between Donald Trump and Boris Johnson's teams.

    There's nothing I like better than being told what I should embrace by someone with a vested interest I despise. Fills me with cooperation.
    However, seeing as Barnier's chosen this moment do the *cabaret French accent* "Aw haw haw we 'av ze uppair hand" arsery, it's all grist to Trump's "line upto kiss my ass, you should be grateful we're even talking to you and our chicken' s the best, the best in the world. It's bigly best cos I'm president and I do chicken better than anyone. MAGA!" mill.
    Even though the food poisoning rate in the US is 7 times higher than it is here.

    I would find Brexit simpler to comprehend if it meant British food quality improved by returning to the times when foreign muck didn't exist in Britain, especially the rubbish imported from the States.

    Who among you can tell me the part of a chicken where the McNuggets are? Is there anything less appealing than eating chicken out of a bucket? What's all this nonsense about pulled meat that seems to be all the rage these days?

    Traditional British food was never like that.
