Bittersweet Brexit : The Future of Food, Farming, Land and Labour Paperback / softback

Description

*Selected as one of openDemocracy's Best Political Books of 2017**BR**BR*Although widely criticised and hugely wasteful, The Common Agricultural Policy did at least afford British farmers a degree of support.

Post-Brexit, that support will vanish - to be replaced with a woefully misconceived agricultural export drive that cannot possibly deliver. *BR**BR*Bittersweet Brexit suggests a solution: paying workers decent wages in the agricultural sector could radically transform the nature of farming in Britain.

It would improve yields, increase sustainability and ensure greater self-sufficiency at a time when food security is becoming a vital issue. *BR**BR*This scenario provides a progressive, forward-thinking and optimistic future for food and farming in Britain, which, unlike many other industries, is currently being ignored.
