Brexit Britain at risk from food shortages, rising prices and lower animal welfare standards, hears Lords committee

Brexit Britain at risk from food shortages, rising prices and lower animal welfare standards, hears Lords committee | welfare benefits | Scoop.it
Brexit risks increasing food prices, lowering safety and welfare standards, causing food shortages and worsening a public health crisis in the UK, members of a House of Lords committee heard on Wednesday. The country already has a “catastrophic” £22.5bn trade deficit in food, Professor Tim Lang of the Centre for Food Policy at City University said. A long-term decline in Britain’s self-sufficiency has left the food system in a “fragile” state, he told the Lords EU energy and environment sub-committee. A third of the food Britons eat currently comes from the EU.

Theresa May is breaking her own manifesto promise and knowingly throwing the economy to the wolves

Theresa May is breaking her own manifesto promise and knowingly throwing the economy to the wolves | welfare benefits | Scoop.it
One of the major warning signs of an impending financial crash over a decade ago was rising personal debt, much of it linked to mortgages in an inflating housing market. Despite falling in the wake of the financial crisis, household debt as a share of GDP remains high, and is rising fast. UK households are the second most indebted in the G7 group of advanced economies. The Office for Budget Responsibility predicts it reaching 153 per cent by 2022.

From her PMQs slip-up to the Universal Credit debate, today has been an embarrassing day for Theresa May | welfare benefits | Scoop.it
After today’s Prime Minister’s Questions, it has suddenly become less likely that Universal Credit will ever be fully rolled out. Jeremy Corbyn rather impressively under-played his victory, announced this morning, in securing a freephone helpline for claimants. Recognising that this was a small but significant step, he asked if the Government would pause the roll-out of Universal Credit altogether.

As a senior doctor, I witness the NHS crumbling on a daily basis – I don’t know how much longer it can go on like this

As a senior doctor, I witness the NHS crumbling on a daily basis – I don’t know how much longer it can go on like this | welfare benefits | Scoop.it
When I entered the NHS back in the early Nineties as a junior doctor, it was a completely different world. Patients received excellent care by and large, numbers were manageable and doctors, while overworked and underpaid, felt valued and appreciated. Sadly, this is no longer the case. Since those relatively halcyon days, I have seen the slow but inexorable decline in standards – which has resulted in the NHS turning from the “envy of the world” to the sick man of Europe.
