Did you see that the "Made in Britain" stamp favoured by many British manufacturers and producers is under threat from where else but the EU? Proposals to switch to a Europe-wide 'Made in the EU' labelling system will be discussed by the European Commission next month. If implemented it would leave British consumers unable to tell where the contents of their shopping basket come from in the EU. The rule would apply even if the final product is based on imported foodstuffs. Only meat would be exempt, so that goods such as Danish bacon and Parma ham could be identified by their origin.

From an EU perspective this is very logical. It seeks to subvert the identity of the Nation state at every juncture so stripping away the "Made in Britain/France/Germany etc" label helps advance that cause. It also shows that every outward and visible form of the British identity is vulnerable whilst we remain in the European Union. The EU is a neo-Stalinist institution which devours the sovereign State and the sooner the UK gets OUT the better!
