quick question after Brexit will the UK be exporting food especially meat from the USA?
will the government export food knowing it contains harmful chemical?
sorry i know it sounds stupid but i want to know if it has been addressed by the government
(haven't been keeping up with Brexit)
also, will the government be thinking of keeping or making similar laws about chemicals in food like the eu have?
ohh **** importing and exporting how the actual hell did I use those in the wrong context...just been reading a lot about Brexit and have suddenly become aware of the consequences.
also cant stop laughing at what a idiot i have made myself look like fml
Personally I do not see a US/UK trade deal happening. I ultimately believe we will remain in the EU or have a soft brexit.
You mean importing? Yes, we will. The EU as a whole already imports US beef, I believe the US (as well as almost every other country outside the EU thanks to WTO) can export 45,000 tonnes of hormone-free beef duty-free. IIRC the market share for US beef in the EU is about 30% or so.
If you're worried about it just avoid US meat. Australia has a very competitive meat industry, in fact, I believe Australian meat is prefered in the foodservice industry because of its size, quality and consistency of availability. I mean, if you're going to eat meat, why not make it a treat and get the good stuff?

hopefully, i would rather anything then a deal with the USA i feel like we would truly be shooting ourselves on the foot
Wether we get a trade deal with the US is dependant upon how closely parliament decides to follow the referendum result, but if they do somehow decide that we should actually leave the EU then we will be free to and yes that would probably mean American meat being sold in larger quantities over here.
Don't be fooled by the chlorinated chicken myth though, there's absolutely nothing wrong with the process.
Don't forget that losing access to the single market wouldn't only make it harder to trade with the EU 27.
There are dozens of other non-EU countries which the UK currently has easier access to as a result of its single market membership, so the UK would have more trade barriers with those other countries as well, since the agreements that those countries have with the EU would no longer apply between them and the UK.
Aside from that, no other trading relationships would change - the UK is already allowed to trade with whoever it likes under its current terms of membership via WTO rules - this includes the US. The WTO rules are restrictive however. In other words, the net effect will be to add barriers but wouldn't remove any.

If I were the PM I'd of sent someone to the Whitehouse to negotiate the day ofter the 2016 referendum result.
However the correct plan long term would be to become more self-sufficient, hey imagine spending the tax payers money on producing your own food boosting your own economy instead of gifting it to forigen counties boosting theirs!
But in the short term a deal of shorts needed to be done by now to strengthen the negotiations with the EU.
Non of this has happened because our PM and her party are garbage
