The UK is in a difficult situation right now. One one hand their influence in the world has long gone. The US does not regard the UK as it used to, Now the standing of the UK in the EU is diminished. Maybe we the UK will become the next rouge state
“Crude calculations suggest that UK agricultural land could provide more than enough food from arable production in terms of our daily calorific requirements, in theory making the UK self-sufficient”. (DEFRA report para 4.14).
This is important because food security is along with energy security the most certain guarantee of a country’s sovereignty. Moreover, energy security is bound up with food security, viz: “As a measure of domestic food security, self-sufficiency does not cover the processing and distribution of food, it does not allow for the imported energy on which domestic agriculture is directly and indirectly reliant, and it does not take account of the resilience of the supply chain.” (DEFRA report Para 4.15)

So the question is this, is Britain capable of sustaining itself?
I would say it is not. We would have to return to World War 2 time rationing not only of food, but power.

As far as I have been able to find out, the ordinary British public do not have any rights, the Magna Carta was written for the nobles rights, not the serfs, it took the British labour government quite some time to sign up to the EU bill of rights, mainly to make sure it did not affect the Queen or the PTB.
