Brexit :Turkey Farmers Declare 'Christmas Is Ruined' Due to Brexit



Paul Kelley is one of the biggest turkey suppliers in Britain. He says that we are about to face a major shortage of turkeys this Christmas, and places the blame squarely on Brexit.

He's furious because he says that whenever he has given one of countless interviews about the problems in the supply chain, problems with labour or with the CO2 he needs to safely package his product, the media have cut out all the references he's made to Brexit.

3. Just like they were behind the republican "victories" in 2016

And the Republican's top tosser Moscow Mitch knows it.

5. True, but I was thinking more of who in Britain?

Certainly anything that devolves the EU or NATO helps Russia. I wonder if anyone is really keeping score of what Brexit was supposed to deliver and what it has or has not.

10. Such a mess that so many people have put the reasons down to

Covid. I'd like to think that there will be a reckoning one day with the Tories but the media is in their pocket.

9. Russia. Also behind certain protests in France & elsewhere. The goal is to bust up the EU...

Donít believe otherwise.

Sure, like MAGAts here in the US, there are resentments galore to stoke, and fools fall for it. But look far enough, and Putinís minions are stirring the pot and stoking the flames.

12. EU is in a bad place vis a vis Russia. Need their natural gas but have Putin meddling in their

internal affairs but have to be careful how they respond to that. Brexit didn't help for sure and Merkel leaving also probably not good timing.

15. Really don't know why Britain wanted this--

perhaps they no longer do.
