"Boris Johnson is willing to provide Australia tariff-free access to UK food markets despite fears it could 'decimate' the rural economy.
Farmers launched a furious backlash yesterday against the proposal to grant Australian produce privileged access, fearing it would mean British farmers with high welfare standards will struggle to compete.
The plan to give Australian food exporters the same terms as the European Union could potentially 'wipe out' agriculture if the terms are replicated in other agreements, the PM has been warned."

The average farmer could receive a lump sum payment of £50,000 - capped at £100,000 for farmers with most land."

Allow the Aussies in and it's only a matter of time before the US with it's even lower food standards gets a deal...

Even more great Brexit news.

Musicians and music businesses warn of ‘time up’ for UK grassroots acts, and European orchestras being resistant to booking UK artists because of ‘paperwork and expense’.

On Sunday, Sir Simon Rattle warned the London Symphony Orchestra will “fail” if ministers do not help ease post-Brexit touring rules in Europe.

Barriers to music tours include “even very basic things”, the conductor says.

Once we get ove this Pandemic its SS Brexit Full steam ahead.
