    No, we are just leaving the European community and freeing ourselves from the nanny state regulations set in Brussels. We are still in the continent of Europe, so phone calls will not be affected. As part of agreements laid down many years ago, we will still be free to visit countries within the ECC, but we will not be as free to work or live in these countries. The big advantage is that we will not be forced to accept people from other countries regardless of their past, or pay them social security money to doss here. Our problems with the EEC started when eastern European countries joined the EEC and we had no power to stop tens of thousands of migrants moving into the UK. It does not mean that decent people from these countries will not be welcome here, it just gives us control, allowing us to keep their criminals and riff raff out.

  4. The problem is that vegetarian substitutes for meat, are loaded with phytoestrogen-rich soy, GMO based soy

    We know how you feel about soy. But please do tell where you got your degree in nutrition?

    Ingredients have to be put on every food in the store. You just need to look at the ingredients to know what's in it.
    Yes it's usually small writing and on the back but anyone that's picky about their food choices can easily read it before purchasing.
  8. So how is it going with fake meat taking over the world?

    Whats that? Its not happening? Such a surprise

    I've been a vegetarian now for 6 years and I haven't had the flu since I started. (knock of wood) I also only get a cold a couple times a year. There's just so much more nutrition in leafy greens and vegetables compared to the normal American diet. Plus it's cheaper. Most of the greens I eat grow like weeds year round in my garden.

    I think people who are on the Atkins diet should have access to high quality fake carrots.

    Personally, I don't understand fake meat--it's so, well, fake. Processed junk food, for the most part.
    There are innumerable delicious "real" dishes which are naturally meat-free, that there really is no need for substitutes.

    On the other hand, if the consumption of fake meat enables people to transition to a plant based diet with more ease, than I support it, at least in the short term. I find that newer vegetarians and vegans tend to rely heavily on meat substitutes until they begin trying new foods that lack meat to begin with, and then the need for fake meat (or real the craving for the real thing) just falls away.

    Yeah, that's a good point actually lol. Vege folks whinge about the processed meat industry then process the fuck outta anything to resemble something else that's already processed and it's just mushed up shit and then they market it. Lol.

    One point not made or I skipped over...one or the other.

    Regular fruits and vegetables taste better than fake meat.
