NI farmers should have no problem selling overseas

I thought the idea of Britain leaving Europe was to rid us of all of European rules laws and regulations.

So when we leave in six months time what happens to goods moving in and out of Northern Ireland to the rest of the UK is no one else’s business but the British Government and Stormont, if and when it gets up and running again.

As British and Northern Ireland farmers have the highest animal welfare standards in the world there shouldn’t be a problem selling our high quality food products into Europe or around the world.

With any luck farmers will have less red tape and paperwork to deal with in the future. So let just get this Brexit over done with and let get back to business as normal.
