 CPTPP
Topic Originator: jake89

I may have missed it, but when did we hold the referendum to agree joining the CPTPP? I for one object to this as I don't want the CPTPP coming here and telling us what to do. Making us accept New Zealand lamb over great British lamb...

It's like like driving 100 miles to save 20p on a packet of cornflakes.

So we don't want to be in an economic union with our neighbours but will happily join one with countries on the other side of the planet. It's beggars belief. All because some numpties still think we live in war time and the Gerrie's are running the game.

Yes there are food miles but actually the carbon footprint for NZ lamb is less than British lamb.

"In 2007, Lincoln University in New Zealand, published a food miles and carbon footprint study. It concluded that lamb from NZ was more sustainable than lamb produced in the UK because it has a lower carbon footprint.
This is despite the vast distance it must travel to get to the UK. In the study, which focused on “key New Zealand products”, energy and carbon emissions from “production to plate” were calculated and compared to the next best source available to the UK market.

The research showed that for each tonne of NZ lamb produced and imported, 688kg of CO2 is emitted.

When compared to the 2849.1kg of CO2 emitted in UK production, the most sustainable lamb would appear to be that from NZ.

British farmers were understandably vexed and local researchers and farmers raised doubts over the findings. But many conceded that sheep production was more efficient in NZ than in the UK."

Currently though British lamb is now cheaper for the first time since 2011.

That Union doesn't come with the sovereign crushing rules on protecting workers rights, protecting the environment and the terrible bureaucracy of having to disclose your beneficial ownership of your offshore PPE company that you've just set up so those are good unions.
