Here is a list of UK food & drink that currently enjoys Protected Geographical Status under EU law - only clotted cream from Cornwall can legally be called Cornish Clotted Cream; only whisky from Scotland can be called Scotch, for example.

 

Already the US has made it clear that they want these protected statuses removed to allow their producers to compete. In order to reach a deal, our government is likely going to sell out our heritage. 

I understand your point and you are right but somehow this is funny/

How many people are interested in "Cornish Clotted Cream"?

And how many would buy "Scotch" from the USA?

That surprised me too as Carney is surely a banker rather than a politician, albeit prefixed by 'Merchant😊

Andrew Pearce summed him & the Treasury up wonderfully a few mins ago during sky news press preview when he said something like "They can't even get their 3 month forecasts right, let alone 30 years!"

If Carney says it, do the opposite....... pratt !

Did anyone of the hard Brexiters ever publish a realistic and positive forecast for the future after Brexit?

As far as I know that didn't happen. And it's easy to explain why it didn't happen: Because it's impossible!

They all moan and they all tell their stories how they would make things better but it's all bla bla. Just unrealistic dreams.

 

Its like telling a car manufacturer that you don't like that car for $20,000 which with 100BHP and 3l per 100km.

You want a car with 500BHP which uses 1l per 100km for $5,000. That's what you want and you insist that is the only thing you would buy.

Yeah, great idea, except it's just a dream and won't happen. Get real!

I agree that products need to be protected but there must be ways around it? How does the wine industry fare re Burgandy etc bottled in say Chile or OZ? I also recall reading something supporting your point involving the term "Kiwi" fruit where NZ failed to trademark the name and lost out to growers in Chile around a decade ago.

The 'legal advise' currently being withheld is thought to contain confirmation that the northern ireland backstop could leave us in the EU indefinitely!
