Sorry, I can't get this picture out of my head - it is of a reincarnated NS as a puffed up tattooed chicken shouting 'come on I'll take you all on' whilst patting his BCF (Border Chicken Farm) badge.

Bloomin' lack of edit - should of read farm in the first place!

From the Express Uber Alles

State pension DISGRACE: How UK has worst elderly poverty in western Europe - shock study

www.express.co.uk/news/uk/1167564/uk-sta...nsion-poverty-europe



And the equally tax dodging Barclay Brother's write

The British state pension is now worst in the developed world as it has fallen below Mexico and Chile, data shows.
www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/12/05/uk-s...rst-developed-world/

The Centre for Social Justice, which first proposed Universal Credit and is chaired by former work and pensions secretary Iain Duncan Smith, did recommend that the State Pension Age be increased to 75 by 2035 in a new report.

The crappest pension at age 75, with falling life expectancy! Even a yellow chicken wouldn't vote for that!!

I have to admit that I had never heard anyone referenced as a 'boomer' I initially thought that it was something to do with babies and I was trying to work out what the insult was :)

As regards farm bred animals.

If you don't look after them properly they will either die or be worth [censored] all..
The better you look after them the more they are worth.

So wild animals should be encouraged to survive but domestic animals should be got rid of.

I don't think so.

So those of us who qualify are told by voting brexit we have destroyed the lives of future generations and we are totally selfish because our generation had it really easy and we can afford to live with the consequences.

On the other hand we are now some of the worst paid pensioners in the western world.

I'm confused, don't know if I'm well off or not.

I lived in Chile and there is no way that Uk pensioners get less than those in that country. Plus social benefits are extremely limited and education costs a fortune. If you are going on % as an example 50% of f all is f all.

Interesting to note that the vast majority of posters who have mentioned the word b****t on this (and other threads I have noticed) are actually leavers!
The usual belligerent suspects too.
Meanwhile the level headed amongst us are happy to sit back and watch it unravel/succeed*.

You can't moan about a subject being brought up then bring it up yourself surely....

I am just glad I am not one of those people who voted remain and are hoping to watch this country fall on its arse just so they can smugly say
'I told you so but you wouldn't listen'.

Glad my life isn't driven by such bitterness - you may try to laugh it off on here but it is still there in your head when you wake up in the morning.

But that's not what I said

Nobody I would think would dispute that it makes commercial sense to adopt a regime of keeping factory-farmed animals healthy and in the top condition, my argument is that if they are bred simply to produce food for us then they should be considered differently to say domestic pets as far as animal welfare is concerned.

I.m quite comfortable with chickens produced in massive sheds or cattle who've never seen a field if those methods produce reasonable food at a great price after all if you want something different you always have the choice to spend more to buy something you perceive as a better product or to buy food produced in a way you believe to be better for the animals concerned.

My argument is against the protest movement who believe we should treat these factory-farmed animals in the same way we do family pets when it's patently obvious they were bred for one reason, to feed us and their welfare in terms of the regime in which they are kept shouldn't be of concern to anybody so long as the methods used to produce food that people want at a price they want to pay.

And the worst culprits in the world for this are yes our very own EU who should be concentrating on feeding the people under their jurisdiction at the best possible price and not concerning themselves with the living conditions of animals bred purely to feed us.

So if someone breeds dogs for fighting, that's alright because that's what they were bred for?

If we breed pigs and they spend a life in a pen unable to turn round, stressed and miserable and never seeing the sky, that's all right because that's what they were bred for?

I could show you where that logic takes you, but it's unpleasant enough as it is.

I can assure you that b****t is the last thing on my mind when I wake.
I obviously don't expect you to read all my posts, if you did you would see that I have stated that I hope that it all works out for the good of the country and for the good of everyone.
However I stand by my comment that the majority of posters who bring up the subject on here are in fact leavers.

You can have as many EU standards as you want if it makes the people in Brussels feel good. The problem is in getting people to respect them. There are so many examples to show that the EU is just a self serving bureaucracy that is corrupt to boot. Chlorinated chicken will not threaten consumers; it is to reduce the risk of infection coming from the production facility and is taken to imply that this reduces the standards needed to grow - out the chickens. So what is in reality is a non tariff trade barrier against US imports is publicised as a threat to human life and this is accepted by so many who believe whatever they read as the gospel truth. The issue of the taste of U.S, chicken and US food in general is totally separate and I agree that it is not very good. But then again they add sauces to everything.

The chances of getting food poisoning from chicken in the US is 7 times greater than in the UK so to say chlorinated chicken doesn't represent a risk depends on how willing you are to gamble with your family's health.

The chance of chicken being infected or unsanitary is much higher because the conditions are so much worse. Intensive battery farming means the chickens get a much higher level of disease, and they are considerably more likely to do things like eat faeces.

The chickens are also exposed to antibiotics and pesticides which are illegal in Britain. Endocrine disrupting hormones for example raise the risk of cancers, birth defects, and other developmental disorders.

Chlorine also won't kill off things like Coronavirus because that is inside the bird, not on the surface.

As for no one will buy chlorinated chicken, these people will because everything is about price

Are you drama queens planning to eat your chicken raw? Or rare? There is always a risk of cross contamination in any process, manufacture or after being cooked,chlorinated or not. You lot are pissing your beds and there's not currently a chlorinated American hen anywhere near our shores......

I have realised that the whole thing is just political and nothing else.

If the French chlorinated their chicken and the Americans didn't then you would get the same people moaning that the Americans are dirty [censored] because they don't wash their chicken in chlorine and look at the tests of the sky high salmonella in American chicken - lets ban it.

London is particular has become an embarrassment, all those protests when Trump came over with folk wearing silly second rate Spitting Image costumes of him, if a real dictator like Kim Jong-un visited nobody would bat an eyelid - just like the Brexit protests the whole thing lacks class.

Stop flapping about chicken ( sorry pete ).

Carry on as normal and keep buying from the likes of Tesco's, some of which comes from Thailand.

As I mentioned, I only tend to see British chickens even Lidl do them at a decent price so there is no excuse as said not to buy British.

However in supermarkets they probably stick chickens from who knows where on those rotisserie jobbies.

Remember a couple of years back when the whole nation was gripped in frenzy just because DHL screwed up the delivery chain and there were no fresh chickens for a day or two so I can see why France are shitting themselves at being outpriced from this market and have voted to protect their best interests.

I think someone on here delivers them or something and they are the same chickens as M&S sell.

If it wasn't chickens it was some product.
