    Glad you’ve been enjoying the sun.., and beers. Towards the end of the game today were you considering switching to something a little stronger?

    I heard it was a car crash moment for Rachel Reeves on the Andrew Marr show today. I will have to watch on catch up.

    It was horrific for her, but Labour MP's must be on a bonus everytime they say, "Tory Sleaze" on camera so she'll have made a bob or two . Unfortunately she couldn't stop Marr mentioning all the incidents of Labour sleaze.

    Brussels forced to accept British shellfish after waters upgraded
    18 April 2021
    Share
    The European Union’s callous ban on the import of live shellfish from Britain looks set to be rendered obsolete after British waters were upgraded to meet European standards.

    The bloc had imposed a ban on third countries exporting their live catch to the European single market if caught in Class B waters, which much of Britain’s fishing grounds had been listed as being. The ban was initially set to be expire this month but the Commission extended the ban indefinitely and specifically singled out the import of UK catch as being “strictly forbidden”.

    Environment secretary George Eustice had branded the ban on UK catch “unjustifiable” and “legally wrong” after the British government claimed it had received assurances from the Commission that live catch from British waters would not be included in the ban after Brexit.

    The EU executive had been accused of playing malicious political games with top French MEP who heads the parliament’s fisheries committee, Pierre Karleskind insisting the ban “doesn’t make any sense” because “UK waters didn’t become dirty on December 31 at midnight”.

    A government minister told the Mail on Sunday that Brussels had imposed the ban “to punish us for daring to become a nation state.



    “They effectively changed the law to justify their position in blocking the trade, despite clear indications that the export from Class-B waters for purification could continue after the transition period,” the source added.

    However, in a review by the independent Food Standards Agency, the waters off Kent, Essex, Devon, Cornwall and Northumberland have all now been upgraded to Class A, meaning oysters, mussels, claims and cockles caught in these regions can now be exported to the EU market.

    “The UK is a world leader in environmental and health standards, and we take our responsibilities on food exports extremely seriously,” the government minister told the Sunday newspaper.

    “More produce from UK waters will now be eligible for export to the EU again, boosting the British fishing industry.”

    Months ago I said after a PMQs that Starmer was a ‘dud’ and some on here were saying how good his performances were. Sorry but he is a dud and people can see that.

    Jane Austen museum launches BLM-inspired 'interrogation' of author's love for drinking tea and wearing cotton due to slave trade links

    • Jane Austen's House museum will hold 'historical interrogation' into slavery links
    • The author's father Rev Austen was once a trustee of an Antigua sugar plantation
    • She is noted for her use of products of empire including tea, sugar and cotton

    A museum devoted to Jane Austen has sparked fury by announcing plans to subject the author to a 'historical interrogation' over alleged links to the slave trade.

    The celebrated author - and noted abolitionist - wrote Pride and Prejudice and Mansfield Park while living in a cottage in the Hampshire village of Chawton, which has now been turned into a museum.

    But staff at the property devoted to the 18th century author are planning a revisionist attack on her alleged involvement in 'Regency era colonialism'.

    Austen does have links to the slave trade through her father George Austen, the rector for a Hampshire parish who was at one point a trustee for an Antigua sugar plantation.

    The museum however want to look for potential connections to slavery through her use of sugar in her tea and her wearing of cotton clothing, which experts say are all 'products of empire' brought back to Britain from colonies in Africa.

    Lizzie Dunford, the museum's director says these links will be highlighted with future display boards to be installed at the property.

    She says this will be part of a 'steady and considered process' of 'interrogation' into her life and how slavery-linked aspects can be better displayed.

    But critics have slammed the plans as 'madness', saying the museum had fall victim to 'wokeism'.
