Brexit sausage war as Tories attack EU banger ban - that they allowed.

The UK and EU face a furious Brexit battle over sausages after Tory ministers started attacking a Brussels ban on bangers.

UK farmers are already banned from sending the meaty snack to the Continent under post-Brexit rules.

But now the clock is ticking on trade from Britain to Northern Ireland too - as it was only allowed under a six-month grace period.

That grace period expires at the end of June - after that, certain "chilled meat preparations" may be barred from going west across the Irish Sea.

If it's not resolved it's feared this could lead to supply gaps in Belfast supermarket. It includes chilled mince, chicken nuggets and chilled raw sausages, plus ungraded eggs and some unpasteurised milk.

The meaty impasse was already clear last year - because Tory ministers first agreed to put Northern Ireland under some EU rules, then agreed their post-Brexit trade deal without resolving the issue.

Other industries were able to get up and
running when furlough ended, but airlines
could not. Staff needed jobs, and went elsewhere.

New staff need to be trained and security checked
as demand for airlines pick up.


Airlines/airports should have forseen this and
not oversold flights.

Government could have extended furlough for
airlines and airports.

We are flying via schipol this summer, our
outward and homebound flights have been cancelled

Concerns are growing that the United Kingdom is on the cusp of leaving the European Union’s Horizon Europe research programme, the largest collaborative research programme in the world, after the UK science minister said in an 8 June speech in Brussels that the “time is closing” for a positive resolution. His remarks come on the same day that some UK researchers who had already won Horizon funding received notice that their grants would be cancelled.

With available funds of almost €100 billion (US$106 billion), the EU’s Horizon Europe programme provides grants and research funding for scientists in EU member states as well as other nations, such as Israel and Norway, that choose to become ‘associate members’. But the United Kingdom’s continued participation in the programme has been in question since the country voted to leave the EU in 2016.

Ice cream vendors could be forced to ditch their livelihoods as fuel prices rise, industry chiefs have warned.

The doughty purveyors of frosted treats are a welcome summertime sight, but their vans use diesel-guzzling engines.

Many need to keep their vehicles ticking over, even when stationary, and can clock up high mileage as they travel to events or profitable patches.

Industry body chairman Maurice "Moz" Murray, said of this summer: "Beyond doubt, we will lose vans."

The cost of petrol has soared in recent days, with the average litre of unleaded costing 182.31p, and diesel 188.05p. In part due to brexflation.

Mr Murray said the Ice Cream Mobilisers and Associated Trades Alliance (ICMAT), and its 2,500 members from Scotland to Cornwall, were "deeply concerned".

"It's only going to get worse over the summer when we visit various events over the summer holiday," he said.

Mr Murray, who trades in Lancashire, said the industry was at breaking point and the latest fuel hikes threatened to put some out of business.

Harriet Ross admits to having days where she's sick of farming. Pig sick.

She is trying to run a pig farm at Newburgh in Aberdeenshire but costs and overheads are getting out of control.

Her farm aims to grow enough barley to feed the pigs in all seasons but this year it ran out almost six months early.

Harriet points to a range of factors including Brexit, coronavirus and the war in Ukraine which have created difficulties which are pushing her business to the brink.

Welfare of the pigs is the number one priority so we need to make sure that (the temperature) is at the right level for them and we need electricity to do that," she says.

Harriet's energy bill has just doubled from £60,000 a year to about £132,000.

But that's not even her biggest overhead. About 70% of the cost of running the farm is feed.

Harriet and her partner Ben have tried to create a circular system where they grow enough barley to feed the animals in all seasons.

But a shortage of migrant workers at the abattoir created a backlog in processing the pigs, meaning they had to keep them on farm for longer.

Those extra mouths quickly ate through the grain store which ran out back in March.

Labour unveil plans to seek limited changes to Brexit deal

Labour has broken its long silence on Brexit, laying out detailed plans to improve, not scrap, the deal Boris Johnson struck with the EU, in a move it concedes will enrage remain supporters.

On the sixth anniversary of the Brexit referendum, the shadow foreign secretary, David Lammy, confirmed the party would seek only limited changes and would not seek to rejoin the single market.

“We are not going into the next election saying that we will enter the single market or the EU.

“You might not like it but Labour is determined to govern the entire country,” he said adding “there cannot be a rehash of arguments” made in remainer constituencies like his in London.

“The British people have made a decision and we have to honour it,” he told the UK in a Changing Europe’s annual conference.

His remarks came just hours after former Brexit negotiator Lord Frost declared “Brexit is working” and said those who said it was damaging the economy had an “axe to grind”.

Big change/clarification of Labour's policy today.

No one is coming out now saying that are against Brexit.

All the comments are now that they support Boris' deal with a few tweaks like letting EU muscians tour in the UK more easily.

Lammy has now confirmed that not only do Labour back Brexit that Scotland overwhelmingly voted against, they also don’t want the people of Scotland to have a democratic choice over their future. Echoing the Tories.

The blue tick accounts on twitter seem angrry with Labour now supporting Brexit (at least that is their interuptation of what Lammy said today).
