United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson has told farmers the sector can be more profitable and productive – now that it is free of the “shackles” of the EU’s common agricultural policy.
He was addressing the annual meeting of country’s National Farmers’ Union – its first since the end of the Brexit transition period.
Agricultural organisations have warned some sectors are in crisis, due to the twin challenges of Brexit and coronavirus.
Al Jazeera’s Nadim Baba reports on how some farmers are worried.

    They should be concerned, Brexit is to the benefit of the financial world. In freedom, EU rules are deregulated and the American model is approximated. Citizens will fall victim to more and harder exploitation. It is incredible how right-wing parties continues to trick voters into believing something that comes from that side of the political spectrum will benefit the working people. But apparently, voters get dumber over time, not wiser.

    • Avatar der_ radierer says:

      @Jim Allen
      Ity doesn’t work to decide everything based on costs. This leads to short-termism and caused the UK to be in this mess.
      Also, a government’s policies should also focus on the provision of basic supplies needed for life – such as food.
      What “control” do you have over your life if you get all your food from 3rd countries who sell to the highest bidder, can impose export bans any time ( like the US did for vaccines), and can change their health and environmental standards as they like.
      Brexiters have been had. End of.

    • Avatar Stephen Devlin says:

      Yep 7000 jobs lost to the EU, along with euro clearing and some US dollar clearing

    • Avatar Jim Allen says:

      @der_ radierer I agree – that was my point. Businesses go to the lowest cost in this worldwide “race to the bottom” that we’re in. Should it be that way? No. There needs to be some core domestic production for the basic reason that your citizens need employment. A lot of economic models are just BS – actually – they are what they are – models. But that doesn’t mean that you cut off your nose to spite your face. I live in the States – I read a story last year about a steel mill that was thriving based on higher tariffs and down the road from them was a manufacturer about to go under because of the steel tariffs. Stop making multinationals rich at the expense of your own jobs.

    • Avatar Andy in Germany says:

      This was the whole point of Brexit: taking back control for a comparatively small group of people, and loss of control, security and protection for everyone else. The “opportunities” are for the disaster capitalists who will now buy out the bankrupt farmers and businesses, and re-employ their staff on much worse conditions than before.
      Brexiters keep saying they knew what they voted for so I guess it’s what they wanted…

    • Avatar Jim Allen says:

      @Andy in Germany No disagreement from me – we’re doing this in the States right now. Look who has the power – business- especially multinationals.

  9. Avatar lucius1976 says:

    If you start cutting yourself off from the market you shouldn’t be surprised. They might be able to export tariff free, but still have to comply to the rules of every market they want to export. Tariff barriers are less important then regulations barriers.

    • Avatar der_ radierer says:

      They are really shocked that putting yourself out of a market makes access to it harder.

  10. Avatar manuel atreide says:

    The UK is now out of the EU so no more subsidies from the CAP. No « shackles » means no more money. The trade agreement negotiated by the British government also means regulation barriers between British products and their main export market, a market that cannot be replaced by another one.

    All of this has been chosen by British voters, they are the direct and logical consequences of being out of the single market and the customs union. This is actually what Brexit truly means.

    • Avatar Heid The Ba' says:

      Can we get you on a national broadcast? we need you to tell us brexiteers what we voted for. Thanks. When are you available?

    • Avatar der_ radierer says:

      @Jay Law
      But that wasn’t the point of the OP I was answering to.
      All policies can be criticised, the question is whether the outcome will be better when made at national level. Looking at the UK, it doesn’t look so at the moment. Very strong opinions based on absolutely nothing describes the political decision making process in the UK.

      @der_ radierer Jay law seems to forget that any law/subsidy to uk farmers was agreed by the uk government, typically brexiteer we’ve been in Europe for nearly 50 years but he still see’s it as an ” us and them” situation and ignores the fact any EU law he doesn’t like we helped write and ratify 👍🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇪🇺

      Like fishermen some sold quotas AND were subsidised by the EU.

    • Avatar der_ radierer says:

      This comment is bullshit. If you say that UK farmers were paid to produce less, then the same has to apply to all other EU farmers. Because all policies apply the same to all members.
      To say the farmers of one country received subsidies in oder for farmers of other countries to gain market share is complete bollox.

  16. Avatar TJ Marx says:

    lol they’re going to pay farmers to be less productive and have smaller yields, at a time when population will be higher than ever in human history and food scarcity will become a real issue?

    Wtf are the UK playing at.

    • Avatar Jay Law says:

      @TJ Marx far too technical….I did not refer to mega Co vertical.usually hydro. Vertical with soil, on a smaller level. Simply to reduce space. As you mentioned we will lack. I’m simply saying some of us are already accounting for that. Can’t solve all problems, but… We can and are trying to counteract, even if on a small more personal level

    • Avatar der_ radierer says:

      @ Jay Law
      Amazing how the EU reduces land through payments isn’t it?
      I mean, most people would at least require an excavator.
      Fun aside, if it were true what ou say there wouldn’t be much farming in other EU countries. But the opposite is the case. And all EU countries are treated exactly the same.
      The same applies to your foreign trade. We’re the EU making trade more difficult, they wouldn’t do so much foreign trade, or internal trade. The opposite is the case.
      Let’s see how the UK figure will look in a year or two.
      The flight of Eurotrading won’t even start before next year.

    • Avatar TJ Marx says:

      @Jay Law
      What’s “far too technical”? The reality of farming? Lmao.

      Even where vertical farming uses soil, it’s synthetic soil and includes hormone. Vertical farming does not work without introducing hormone, the plants need it to survive in those conditions.

      Likewise, it isn’t cost effective on a small scale. On the microscale you’re talking about not only is it not cost effective but it provides not additional land.

    While the UK may have to take one or two temporary bullets until they manage to fully transition from EU into sovereignty with newly formed trade deals and a vibrant market, things will gradually improve and Europe will be better off by EU’s supranational neoliberals taking a step back. EU should’ve stayed neutral, focused on security/trade and maintained global peace. The moment the union stepped away from that vision, they became a threat to nation states, conservative morals, security, and a balanced political situation in Europe.

    Props to the UK for making a small sacrifice.

    You want the free market at work? Look at Texas in the States after the snowstorm. No government regulation meant people getting hit for thousands in bills from “independent power producers” and no supply. That, ladies and gentlemen, is the free market at work. You wanted cheaper rates that float based on the market, well you’re screwed now. Pay me now, or pay me later. Good luck competing in a world based on price when you’re rivals costs are 1/10 yours. We learned that from China, and we keep learning. But hey, enjoy your freedom based on government promises 7 years down the road. Where is this trade deal with the US or China the government hyped?

    The decision on EU membership should never have been given to the tabloid reading masses. Or to the Guardian and Independent reading masses, for that matter. The overwhelming majority of us didn’t have the background or understanding to make an informed decision, whichever way we voted.

    • Avatar Guardian of Fire says:

      What your promoting is that the elite should decide for the peasants. This is the modern world not the days when elites alone can decided the future of a country.

    • Avatar Mali Yojez says:

      @Guardian of Fire We elect leaders to make the informed decisions for us, guided by civil servants who dedicate their professional lives to trade and diplomacy. It was insanity to back them into a corner based solely on the gut instinct of the ignorant masses (of which I am a part).

      But if you’re hung up about “elites” making decisions for you, perhaps we should dismantle society and go back to pure anarchy instead?

    • Avatar Guardian of Fire says:

      @Mali Yojez Politicians have their own interest. Many are part of the wealthy, have family that are wealthy or connected to corporations or industrial associations and lobby groups. As such cannot be trusted to make certain important decision themselves without over site by the people. Many politicians use their position to pass laws, gain access to information to use on the stock market and generally abuse their powers. Western democracy is rife with this problem. Many when caught go unpunished by the courts as they changed the laws and use democracy as shield not to be lynched by the masses. Leaving politics but with millions in their pockets.

    • Avatar Mali Yojez says:

      @Guardian of Fire If our politicians are so untrustworthy (you won’t get any disagreement from me about that), why did you vote to give them even more unchecked power over us? Goodbye European Court of Human Rights. Goodbye the best of European trade negotiators working for the good of everyone in the trading bloc. Goodbye the set of workers rights required by the EU. Now we’re stuck with only what our small band of British politicians are willing to give us.

    • Avatar Mali Yojez says:

      @Guardian of Fire Seems to me that you played right into the corrupt hands of Boris, Gove and Mogg by first voting for Brexit and then giving them control of it during the last election.

    • Avatar der_ radierer says:

      @DangerZone They turn everything around to fit their beliefs. Watch today’s vid from ‘Hello There’. He demands full access for UK hauliers to the EU market as if they were still a member. His reasons are that we would shoot ourselves in the foot if we didn’t grant it (?The EU needs UK hauliers).
      Firstly, they get 40% of their food from the EU and 85% of the trucks are EU registered. Hence 34% of the UK’s food is brought in by us. So what does he think would happen if they barred us from doing it, I wonder. Who needs who here?
      And when it comes to not shooting ourselves in the foot. Well, the UK just shot itself in the face with a machine gun only because they believed it would hurt the EU. (falling apart, € imploding). So surely you don’t mind us doing a bit of foot shooting just to see whether it really feels as victorious as you say. 😂😂😂

And the idea that the UK could sell wheat, or any agriproduct to the US or Canada….. hilarious! They are drowning in wheat, barley, and every other agricultural product. I think they might just get by without those of the UK. Especially as UK products would first have to travel across the ocean (might just take a while) and then compete with products from a country with massively lower environmental and animal welfare standards, with therefore much cheaper products. The UK will be lucky if their farmers aren’t all bankrupt within a few years and they are getting food from the UN.

    Let’s have a word about BUREAUCRATS.
    According to the news, the UK now has more bureaucrats just to deal with Brexit than the EU administration has to manage the entire EU.
    The UK so far has 21 ministers that were never elected by anyone and do not have to answer any questions to Parliament.
    Some of them sit at the cabinet table in No.10 and are effectively part of government – Mr Frost being the latest example.
    It almost goes without saying that hardly any of these has any experience in public office, not to mention the area they are ministers for.
    Glad the EU appoints competent and experienced people. Look at Mr Barnier:
    First regional elected office 1973, with presiding duties from 1982 to 1999.
    Youngest ever MP in 1978 at age 27. Since 1999 EU commissioner. 2004 short period as Foreign sec, 2009 Secretary for Agriculture and Fisheries, 2009 MEP, 2010 Commissioner for the Single Market and the reduction of trade barriers, 2014 Vice President of the Commission, 2015 special advisor to the Commission for the Security and Defense policy, 2016 chief Brexit negotiator.
    This guy is a diplomatic giant. And the Brits put Davis “No notes” , Raab “”tell them to get lost” and Frost “No compromise, we are british” on their side of the table. No surprise they ran at first opportunity.

    This policy makes the UK dependant on food imports from outside.

    • Avatar der_ radierer says:

      Absolutely true.
      Imagine another volcano ash cloud reducing harvests, and countries like the US or China will impose export bans. America First!
      Where will the UK be then?

    • Avatar Anthony Burke says:

      The uk imports 80% of its food requirements. Google it

    • Avatar Adam Abele says:

      @Anthony Burke To my knowledge the UK has about 60% of its food from domestic sources. If your number is true the UK produces only 20%. That would be very bad and leave the country extremely vulnerable. But this policy would make it even worse.

      @Zuurker U i am a farmer . And I voted for Brexit, I did it to try and scare the eu , but I hoped it would not happen , I thought by voting for it , it would make us stronger within the eu and we would get us more bargaining power ‘ it look as if now , nobody wants our fish and meat , and I will be left with my sheep and cattle that has no market , what am I supposed to do now , I need to sell to keep food on the table , will the eu let us back in and everything could go back to normal again , how long would it take for that to happen if we all voted to get back in .
