What Michael Gove and Theresa Villiers told consumers and farmers about food standards

If anything can make middle England rise up against the Conservatives, I suspect it is lying to Countryfile.

Thanks for this Jonathan, but to show the lie, you have to include the evidence the promises have been broken. If I am to link this to friends colleagues etc in the hope that it makes its way into the Toryosphere, it needs that as well, and from a source the Tories tend to believe in as well.

If you could provide that and attach it as part of this article, it would be very useful.

We'll have to wait until a trade deal with the US is announced, but all the indications are that we will accept lower food and animal welfare standards as part of it.

After all, we are smaller than the US and need the deal more than it does.
