Milk, cheese and egg costs push food inflation to highest point in 14 years

Is this a good time to turn vegan?

The cost of milk, cheese and eggs is soaring – which strikes This Writer as odd. Doesn’t the UK produce plenty of these foodstuffs? Aren’t we now a major exporter of cheese, thanks to Liz Truss?

Yet there seems to be a shortage and it’s being blamed on the war in Ukraine. One has to query how that will play if the current situation there continues and Russia is pushed out of that country altogether.

Meanwhile, we’re being told that headline inflation has fallen because petrol and diesel prices have fallen.

But the UK’s situation remains precarious because all these elements are dependent on situations in foreign countries that cannot be controlled here.

It casts a long shadow over the globalism that Conservatives have pushed on us since the 1980s.

#LizTruss threatens #EU with #Article16. It’s more likely she’ll send #cheese to #NorthernIreland

Liz Truss: the queen of cheese once warned that Brexit will seriously harm the UK. Now it seems she is to be the instrument of that harm.

Sorry, everybody. I tried to take Liz Truss seriously but I couldn’t.

The woman who got upset about the amount of cheese the UK imports, and then signed a deal to export it to a country that is mostly lactose-intolerant, has been appointed as the lead negotiator on Brexit after Lord Frost quit.

Frost had been the UK’s chief Brexit negotiator but quit after the deal he negotiated proved unworkable – particularly with regard to the Northern Ireland protocol. He said Boris Johnson had only agreed to the protocol in order to “get Brexit done” and had known it could not possibly work.

Now, Truss has been handed the gargantuan task of making it work – before a hard border is set up between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK.

And people have been laying bets on how long it will be before she triggers Article 16.

For clarity, Article 16 of the NI Protocol says that the UK or EU may take safeguarding measures – without agreement with the other side – “if the application of the protocol leads to serious economic, societal or environmental difficulties that are liable to persist, or to diversion of trade”.

Any changes would be restricted to what is strictly necessary in order to remedy the situation. And if the UK invokes it, the EU may retaliate if its own rights and obligations are prejudiced by those changes – triggering a catastrophic cascade.

And Thicky Lizzie threatened to trigger it straight away:

Apparently she thinks this is a great way to take the Prime Minister job that Boris Johnson will soon be relinquishing:

However, there are doubts as to her ability to do the job:

And this brings me back to the headline.

How long do you think it will be before she tries to apply a cheese-based solution to the problem?

Liz Truss is Tories’ choice as most popular Cabinet member. Really? From doing deals with Macedonia?

Truss up: the queen of cheese is now queen of the Cabinet. Why? Seriously. WHY?

The mouse-brained queen of cheese, Liz Truss, has been voted most popular Cabinet member by Conservative-voting readers of the ConservativeHome website.

I mean, obviously there’s very little competition, but, really? Liz Truss?

This is the woman who got so aggravated about cheese, she’ll never live it down:

She went on to forge a trade deal with Japan that, even in September when it was signed, was ridiculed for selling Stilton to a nation of people who are lactose intolerant.

Then in November, the deal unravelled altogether. Truss had claimed “strong tariff reductions on key agricultural products like pork, beef and salmon [that] will benefit farmers and food exporters”.

But a study by the UK Trade Policy Observatory (UKTPO) at the University of Sussex found that just 10 of 9,444 products will enjoy lower taxes.

They include birds’ eggs, raw hides, fur skins, handbags and ultra-strong spirits of at least 90 per cent alcohol – none of which are exported to Japan by the UK, meaning the study found the gain to UK exporters is zero.

Now she’s celebrating a deal with North Macedonia. Is it too early for the wheels to come off that wagon?

Apparently it isn’t.

In fact, I hope people in Macedonia don’t take offence at the next comment:

She is utterly incapable and a danger to the well-being of the people of the UK.

What does it say about her Cabinet colleagues that Tories find her the most appealing member of that group?

Over to you, Twitter…

Here’s the last word:

Cheese queen Truss trumpets free trade deal with Japan, selling Stilton to people who are lactose-intolerant

Liz Truss: the queen of cheese, who once warned that Brexit would seriously harm the UK, is now proving it with a duff free-trade deal with Japan. It’s no different from the deal we had as part of the EU, but with added Stilton.

Liz Trust can’t get away from cheese, can she?

The International Trade minister has just announced a brand-new post-Brexit free trade deal with Japan. Hooray!

But didn’t we already have a free trade deal with Japan?

Yes. Yes we did.

But this one has added Stilton cheese!

Let’s review Liz Truss and her association with cheese:

Well, at least now she’s talking about exporting it…

… to a country where most people can’t eat it – and a country where nobody eats Stilton at all:

So Japan has given us the same free trade deal we had as part of the EU, with added Stilton cheese. Not much of a victory, is it?

These people certainly don’t think so:

Oh and wait for it… here comes the punchline…

This is only an agreement in principle; the Japanese haven’t signed the deal yet. In other words, the Stilton may yet come off the (cheese) board.
