I'd certainly like to think this is what will end up happening.

As long as the Tories have something they can claim 'Victory' on then anything else will just be ignored.

Yes they realise, and by really really hurting they can get people to agree to all kinds of rights removal and standard dropping in the name of “kick starting the economy” allowing them to make a fortune.

It doesn’t matter who they hurt or kill if it isn’t themselves.

Yes, I think the line now is that had everyone thrown their weight behind Brexit immediately and accepted the result, we would have been able to negotiate a better deal more quickly and wouldn't now be in this gooseberry fool position.

So we've got to go through with Brexit because the people who thought it was a bad idea tried to stop it, even though it's actually a bad idea.

But that tweet isn't really what that tweet says though.

Aside from the Customs Union vote in Parliament a year ago (cheers Lib Dems and TIGs!), Remain MPs simply haven't had the opportunity to 'frustrate' the process beyond demanding basic democratic accountability.

From the beginning the most influential voice in politics on how the UK has gone about reconciling the referendum result with the reality of international negotiations has been given to the ERG wing of the Tory party. No-one else has mattered and compromise has been impossible.

Ah, on the subject of the ERG, does anyone else feel that their group should have to change its name? The R for 'Research' is misleading at best.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Aldi vows never to sell chlorinated chicken or hormone-treated beef even if UK strikes trade deal with US

Giles Hurley, chief executive of Aldi UK, has promised that his supermarket will only stock fresh chicken and beef supplied by British farmers.

In a statement he called UK food standards 'some of the highest... in the world' and promised to 'never compromise' the standards of Aldi products.

The declaration rules Aldi out from selling US chlorinated chicken and hormone-treated beef, even if Britain strikes a deal with America.

Aldi, the UK's fifth biggest supermarket chain, joins John Lewis-owned Waitrose in trying to prevent the weakening of UK food standards.

It comes amid growing fears that Boris Johnson will not protect the interests of UK farmers as he concludes a trade deal with Donald Trump.

'We are a signatory to the NFU Back British Farming Charter and our entire core range of fresh meat and milk is from Red Tractor-approved farms in the UK.

Mr Hurley said: 'Aldi is one of the biggest supporters of British suppliers and we want to make it clear that will always be the case'
'We will never compromise on the standards or specifications of our products, and that includes a commitment to never selling chlorinated chicken or hormone injected beef.'

He added: 'Britain has some of the highest food quality standards in the world, and our commitment to only source chicken and beef from this country means our customers know they are always buying high quality Aldi products at unbeatable value.'

The news was welcomed by campaigners, including Naomi Smith at Best for Britain. who said: 'This is an important statement that reassures consumers that the quality of food sold in Aldi's UK stores won't be sacrificed.

'We strongly encourage other supermarkets and food retailers to offer the same commitment to their consumers.'

The commitment comes as more than 110,000 UK supermarket customers signed an online petition calling on retailers including Tesco, Sainsbury's and Asda to refuse to stock chlorinated chicken and hormone-treated beef.

There are growing concerns among British farmers that the Government will not protect their interests and will sacrifice UK food standards as it concludes negotiations with the US before the Brexit transition period ends this year.

Hopefully the other main supermarkets follow suit.

Expect Truss will only be able to discuss pork markets as a hobby soon.

Trivial for it to enter their supply chains in processed food & ready meals though, a la horsemeat.

There's talk of a trade deal with Turkey that will give people from Turkey special emigration status. It's ironic that Turkey joining the EU was given as a reason for leaving but now Brexiters are happy for them to come over.

That's going to be a condition of many of the deals that'll they will need to make.
