Unlimited quantities of Negroamaro, Nero d'Avola and Torres Viña Sol. Tuscan olive oil. Parmigiano reggiano. Hundreds of tins of best quality canned Italian plum tomatoes. Gragnano pasta, whatever shapes they make, and lots of it, though I'm not a fan of trofie or chitarra spaghetti. A few dozen packets of vialone nano risotto rice. A couple of dozen bottles of 32% alcohol limoncello from a lovely little shop in Ravello. Prosecco by the hundred gallon. Some stuff won't keep long enough. Sadly, Amalfi lemons, mozzarella and scamorza come into that category. Jars of 'nduja paste. Pancetta for the freezer. And Waitrose Essentials baked beans.

We will not impose import duties on EU food.

A 44% increase in the price of very basic foodstuffs will push a few million people into malnutrition

That assumes we will levy EU Tariffs on it. We will not.

A 44% increase in food costs would be pretty disastrous for most people. And it isn't clear that we will be able to get the supplies.

It isn't clear where this extra cost will come from, and we will get the supplies from the current suppliers. Why would they stop?

"We will not impose import duties on EU food."

Suppose they do decide to let food from the EU in without import duties. Won't there be a need for paperwork to prove a) those imports come from the EU and b)that they are foods? And won't this lead to delays and added costs?

But we will also lose EU negotiated trade relationships with some countries we get food from, having to wait until WTO is negotiated or other deals are struck.

So every shipment then needs to be checked to see if it competes with a UK producer?

If only .01% of the imports from a source country are problematic, 100% of them need to be checked, with all that implies.

One thing I expect to happen: supplies of illegal drugs will expand enormously. The customs people will be so snarled up looking for illegal catfood you'll be able to haul cocaine by the containerload undetected.

In the case of the tories the farming that they want to protect is that carried out by rich farmers who are tory members and donors. Labour, if they follow Keir Starmer's current thinking, would keep us in the customs union and align us with the single market, and then there wouldn't be a problem.

Since we are concentrating on food prices, it is worth pointing-out that family food bills constituted (on average) 20% of the household budget in the 1960s. That figure currently runs to 11% and I have heard lower figures touted.

Where does the cheapo in "cheapo food" come from? Countries that welcome the revenue. Countries that are not exactly growing obese.

So when these countries realise their population is rising faster than western Eurpe, and the public are ever more savvy - how much of that cheapo food will stay at home to feed the angry mob?

Now factor-in global warming that is pushing optimum growing latitudes ever further to the poles, resulting in pest control getting ever more chemical, and yields falling in hotter climes &/or new less suitable terrain........

Food prices will be unfavourably affected.

Throw in Brexshit and vendors have a perfect excuse to hide the necessary re-balance in a "not my fault" excuse. It happened with decimisation. It happened with metrication. Plus ça change. History repeats itself, it has to, nobody listens.

Of course we can grow our own, picked by cheapo migrant labour from where? Calais?

We shouldn't have to worry about any import tarrifs, as the government can directly subsidise this, and if it needs to recover the money, raise this through a poll tax levied on boroughs that were daft enough to vote leave. Not just consumer produce, but also supply chain components, or alternatively print ore money - hyper inflation may be an unfortunate by product - but if the printing money is kept off the books and circulate in brown envelopes then taht should be a problem.

Well we could cover the country with polytunnels and provide artificial heating and lighting. Very nice...
