This is the thing. But who would be responsible for such a program?
With regards to not having enough space for efficient farming, that is highly unlikely to be the case. We have a rich history of farming and if you
see our land from above, it is like a patchwork quilt of agricultural land. Living in the city, it's easy to sometimes forget how much countryside and
open space this country has.
There is also the push for responsible fishing happening at the moment and we are about to pass new laws to reduce the amount of dead fish being
thrown back into the sea. If we farm responsibly and the supermarkets don't have full control over what we buy and at what price, we could potentially
see a massive turnaround.
Think about it, if more production is brought back into the UK and at the same time, demand for British products increases, it will create thousands
of jobs, reducing unemployment increasing the GDP and allowing more cash earned in the UK to be pumped back into the economy.
There will also be a reduction in transport costs as the miles a product has to travel is less which could ultimately lead to lower costs. Although
products on the shelf won't necessarily be cheaper, they won't be as volatile and we will be getting a better product for our pounds.
Relying less on the EU, we can become independent again (of course there will always be import and export of certain products) so we won't become
reclusive but we will then be more resilient against troubles overseas.
It could potentially be the catalyst for change in other areas such as immigration and the whole social structure of families in the UK. It could all
be fantasy but even if partly true, what is going on at the moment would make perfect sense.
