    Whilst itís great Kuensberg etc walked out in solidarity, it would help if the news corporation you work for actually reports it. Nothing on BBC news at Six and nothing on their website (main news page at least).

    Doing their job as usual. I'm sure they'll put it down to 'human error'. They love that one.

    Of course the gammons are defending Government tried to ban some journalists from a press briefing earlier.the bbc has another HYS shit show on their hands with gammons trying to defend everything apparently its "remoaner hipcrasy" about chlorine wash for veg in the EU and the US low standards for chlorine wash chicken. Their simple little brain does not understand you can't get samonella from veg and they are 2 different food types!

    The thing is, those online things are mostly bots, just like the forum. It is not real life.

    I stand corrected, what I should of said then is animals kept in filthy conditions as its cheaper, you are not going to get that with veg (unless someone throws the veg with food that is diseased already) salmonella was a poor choice

    That was never on the cards under this administration. It's another thing that leavers misled people by during the campaign. And tbh, whilst the path we are on is likely to be more damaging to the economy than Norway,i can see why it's preferred (politically). We may as well remained part of the EU otherwise

    Not strictly true, you can get food poisoning; Salmonella, e-coli etc from unwashed veg due to being grown in manure and/or pickers hygiene.

    Stuff on shelves might look clean, but every bag will tell you to make sure you wash it properly. You might get away with it 9 times out of 10, but it's not just a case of assuming that it's safe just because it's veg.

    You also need to consider what pesticides and fertiliser has been used to grow the veg. Some of the stuff thatís still allowed in the Americas was banned yonks ago in Europe

    Before getting too sniffy about US food standards, remember that on the Global Food Security Index they rank above the UK - and above a good chunk of the EU - on food safety.

    Considering that meat standards are lower (as documented in fast food nation, slaughterhouses have to have different processes for any meat bound for Europe rather than for local consumption) and food poisoning is far higher, that surprises me.

    Food standards are different between the US and EU, but it is generally incorrect to say that EU standards are better. Food poisoning rates are measured differently and are not directly comparable.

    There's a lot of bullshit in the Brexit debate, most of it from the Leave side. But unfortunately food standards are one area where Remainers tend to be the bigger sinners.

    Edit: More details on why a lot of the narrative around US food standards is misleading: https://techround.co.uk/business/american-food-standards/

    You have to look into the detail. The is a food security index sponsored by an american agribusiness. It includes a quality and safety metric, of which the safety metric is composite of three factors: is there a food standards agency (simple yes gives you 100%, no 0%), are their fridges, and does everybody have access to clean drinking water. UK scores better than US on sfatey as not everybody in US has access to clean water...

    So it doesnt actually look at anything more detailed than whether there is an agency or not!

    Also in any case, the chlorinated chickens debate is about farming standards.

    Indeed, isn't it more to that our standard would have to match the Americans, as in we couldn't force them to take on ours if it came to it?
