Food security – producers and consumers read on

marcus brigstockeThis week, satirist Marcus Brigstocke has ‘become a farmer’.

Listen to his ‘right on’ exposition of selling milk at below production costs here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b04dqwyt

Why bother?

Because as the dairy industry declines and imports roll in at whatever cost it will be followed by a similar undercutting of

  • cereals
  • meat
  • fruit
  • vegetables

– not necessarily in that order.

Those who ignore the situation will live to regret it – in thrall to overseas suppliers of food, regardless of its quality and price.

And food producers: co-operate or go under – as unproductive parasites flourish!
