Rod Liddle Food shortage? We’re not at war. We are leaving an undemocratic bureaucracy
It is ridiculous to believe the scaremongering coming from the Government and the ones who really eat it up — the Remoaners

ARE you stockpiling your cans of food in case there’s a no deal on Brexit?
Stacking up the tins of beans and Fray Bentos steak and kidney pie ready for Armageddon and Year Zero?
There's no need to stock up on food because there won't be a food shortage
My guess is you’re not. And that you think the scaremongering from the Government is utterly ridiculous.
Hell, the Remainers think WE’RE gullible. For having believed the “lies” of the Brexit campaign.
But it is hard to imagine anyone could be quite so stupid as to really believe we’ll be short of food if we tell our European friends to shove their deal where the sun doesn’t shine.
They even had a debate on Remainer Central (that’s BBC Newsnight to you and me) about what we could put in our sandwiches if we fail to sign a deal. Basically it came down to Kirsty Wark’s toenail clippings and Evan Davis’s nostril hair. That’s your lot.
We are not in a war so our shelves won't suddenly become empty
Do they really think we’re that stupid? We’re not at war, you know. We’re just leaving an undemocratic bureaucracy.
Do these dingbats really think that the Spanish tomato growers and the Dutch pig farmers are going to refuse to sell us anything? Or that we would refuse to buy their produce? Get real.
The debate about whether we should leave or remain in the EU was pretty shoddy. There was exaggeration and outlandish claims made by both sides.
I never believed the rubbish about an extra £350million a week for the NHS. And if I’d thought we were going to do that I’d probably have voted Remain. If ever there was a waste of money, that would be it.

The difference is, the Remainers believe all the crap that’s spouted by their side. Every bit of it.
Just as they believed the economy would be wrecked within a week of the vote. When actually it has been doing very well indeed and is projected to do even better.
Sky fallen in yet? Nope. Instead we’re busy sorting out new trade deals with, among others, Japan and Australia. Employment is booming, unemployment is the lowest for decades, wages are rising and inflation is coming down.
And so the Project Fearmongers dream up another nightmare scenario which exists only in their weird imaginations. We’ll all starve! No medicines!
Jeremy Hunt is doing well so far as our new Foreign Secretary
The threats come from our own remainers — but also from within the EU. Especially (quelle surprise) the awful French.
Have you ever known a people more clingy? Listen, mon ami — it’s over, we’re leaving. Our bags are packed and ready in the hallway.
It was fun while it lasted (well, actually, it wasn’t THAT much fun) but now we’re going. Try to get over it. And stop the blackmail, you ludicrous little people.
Jeremy Hunt — never my favourite politician — has at least started well as our new Foreign Secretary.
Warning the EU that it will lose far more than the UK if there’s no deal.
No kidding, Jezza.
We import far more from the EU than we sell to them. There is not the slightest danger of those imports being prevented from arriving here. To suggest otherwise is utterly absurd.
