A LITTLE BIT OF BREAD AND NO CHEESE?

By Pete Moore On September 12th, 2019

This increasingly authoritarian parliament voted through a so-called law forcing the government to release the Civil Service’s contingency plan for a WTO Brexit, what is called Operation Yellowhammer. It’s remarkably similar to the Operation Yellowhammer which was leaked by a fanatically pro-EU Civil Service to The Times last month. The propagandists have, of course, jumped on the absurd claims contained therein.

“Riots on the streets, food price rises and reduced medical supplies are real risks of the UK leaving the EU without a deal, a government document has said.” So leads the controversial British state broadcaster, which is paid millions by the EU.

Of course these are not “real risks”. That’s a lie. These are unmitigated, worst case scenarios. What could happen to you tomorrow? You could jump in front of a truck and be splattered, but that’s not a “real risk”. That’s an unmitigated worst case scenario. We are told that trucks could be delayed for a couple of days at Calais, spoiling food and just-in-time deliveries. What does Jean Marc Puissesseau, the boss of the French ports says? “C’est la bullshit.”

He’s been calling out these Remain lies time and time again. There will be no delays at Calais. And neither will there be any delays at Dover. Who says so? Dover’s ex-boss, who explains that nothing will change. In fact, shippers will have to work hard to experience delays –

And where’s the “best case scenario” in all this? The bureaucrats who produced this bullshit haven’t produced a best case scenario because they’ve never traded a thing and have no idea what they’re talking about. This is yet another propaganda document, a stack of lies, just the bullshit we’ve heard time and time again. Yet again, Project Fear fails first contact with facts.

  1. Actually the declaration that it is a worst-case scenario is the spin the government has put on it, so that good little sheep like you can sleep soundly in your beds.

    As you said it is remarkably similar to the document leaks a month ago. Those documents made it clear that it wasn’t a worst-case scenario. They made it clear that it was a base case scenario.

  2. If this is their base scenario, the lies are all the greater.

  3. //This is yet another propaganda document, a stack of lies, just the bullshit we’ve heard time and time again. Yet again, Project Fear fails //

    That would be fear and lies from the very pro Brexit Boris Johnson government, would it not, the ones that issued this report?

  4. I learn from LBC that the authors of this pack of lies didn’t go to Calais nor even speak with its management. We also learn that Yellowhammer says that insulin will run short and diabetics will suffer.

    This is obvious bullshit. Insulin suppliers have been saying for ages that insulin will not run out. Today the UK’s largest supplier nails this lie again.

    Hi @novonordisk do you have any information on your insulin provision in relation to Brexit? I read somewhere that you’re fully prepared but I can’t remember where I read it! My partner is #type1diabetic using a pump. Thanks.

    Hi. As the UK’s largest insulin supplier, we have increased our stock of insulin in the UK to ensure a continued supply for patients in the event of a no deal. For any further questions, contact my UK colleagues http://www.novonordisk.co.uk/contact-us.html Kr Scott

    The Remain establishment is scaring people with known and obvious lies. Some think they will die if we leave the EU with no withdrawal treaty. We won’t forget or forgive what these criminals are doing.

  5. Everyone believes what they want, but we won’t know what will happen until we make it happen. Is it worth the risk ?

  6. Best never change anything at any time then.

  7. We governed ourselves for many centuries, and scores of countries outside of the EU do perfectly well.

    Of course we know what will happen. There’s more than enough evidence to know that we’ll do fine.

  8. You guys do realize that you can import medicines from the US if there are any issues with France / continental imports?

  9. Yes , countries that have never been in the EU. But we have spent almost 50 years working within that economic framework and I think it is a regressive move to unravel all that for what I think is no obvious beneficial purpose.

  10. Phantom. We don’t want your medicines. They have all been chlorinated 😉

  11. The Remainers’ case seems to be is that the UK can do nothing for itself and has to depend on the EU for things that we could do and make ourselves before we joined the EEC. That is a case for Leave.

  12. If the two parties can’t work out a deal that both are content with, a no deal Brexit is the only alternative.

    And since no such deal has been negotiated, you might want to prepare for the new reality.

  13. //If the two parties can’t work out a deal that both are content with, a no deal Brexit is the only alternative.//

    Rubbish. That would mean that no-deal Brexiters, a minority within parliament and among the people, would always get what they want simply by refusing any deal.

    BTW. For anyone puzzled by Pete’s header, “A little bit of bread and no cheese” is supposed to be similar to the sound of Yellowhammer birdsong.

  14. That would mean that no-deal Brexiters, a minority within parliament and among the people

    Not so – the majority voted Leave, and if no-deal is what it takes to Leave, then no-deal it is, as required by the majority.

    Yes I heard that for the first time today. Someone told me that the Yellowhammer is identified by its chirping of the “Bread and Cheese” song. Who says we haven’t learnt anything from Brexit 😄

  16. Noel

    Do you think that the May deal was fair to the UK?

  17. PS , a little bit of bread and no cheese could also be an ominous warning of what will be left on our dinner plates here in Hungry Britain after Oct 31st 😉

  18. Yeah – we don’t make cheese any more in Britain, or anything. We have to stay in the EU or we’ll starve – and this is what the Remainers are ‘arguing’

  19. We will all be forced to eat Cheddar only, which is fine by me , I don’t like mucky French cheese 😉

  20. //Do you think that the May deal was fair to the UK?//

    I think it was very fair to England. Not fair to NI.

  21. If the two parties can’t work out a deal that both are content with, a no deal Brexit is the only alternative.

    It’s also the law. Article 50 is a treaty provision and it mandates that no withdrawal treaty is the outcome if there’s no agreement.

    And that exposes the absurdity of the Remain campaign to “take no deal off the table”. They can’t take it off the table. No deal is the table. It is EU law and it therefore trumps anything that Parliament does short of revoking the Article 50 notice.

    I find England and France well-matched when it comes to cheese. The best Stilton and matured Cheddar compare favourably with Roquefort and Comte, though I like them all. One of the few areas where domestic produce can match French/Italian/Spanish

  23. I haven’t tried enough French cheeses to be honest apart from the more populist Brie and Camembert, but I do love all types of Dutch cheese although a lot of cheese snobs think they are sweet and bland.
