With the recent issues of blocking at Dover, one thing must stand out – we must become a self-supporting nation.

Our farmers are second to none in the quality of their produce.

The EU paid farmers subsidies to leave their fields idle, and allotments sold for housing.

We must be educated to be more self-sufficient and buy British produce, above all, let’s bring people like Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall on board.
