Hop price $10.37K USD per Metric TonAnd?
To repeat again, we import most of our hops and non EU imports attract a 3.2% tariff. So beer could be cheaper when we leave.
(Not that I think 3.2% on one ingredient will make a big difference)
Go back and look at the final sentence in what you quoted from me.As most of the cost of beer is little to do with the cost of ingredients, result of not having to pay 3.2% import duty would be negligible. Also a lot of the imported hops come from the EU and so are not subject to the 3.2% in the first place.

So all that effort to agree with me it wouldn't make much difference?I was pointing out any difference would be so small as to be negligible/unnoticeable/nonexistent. And also that it would make zero difference to the many beers produced in the UK using british or imported from the EU hops.
Are we likely to send anyone to the funeral in an official capacity?On a positive note, at least Mugabe popped is clogs today.
And why was the austerity required? Because Labour as usual spent, spent and spent beyond the country's means.Manchester. Four or five years ago.
Maybe it's better these days. I hear they're all unconscious on the pavement outside now. Spiced out of their heads
A decade of Tory of austerity eh? Now that's a disgrace.
Wrong.So all that effort to agree with me it wouldn't make much difference?

The deficit was not due to bailing out the banks.To bail out a load of bankers playing fast and loose with CDOs. Incidentally Sajid Javid was one of them.
How do you work that out?So we are in agreement then.
1. figures from the National Audit Office (NAO) in 2018 estimated the sum spent to stabilise the banks to be £133 billion.The deficit was not due to bailing out the banks.
We actually made money on the guarantees we gave (none of which were ever called on).
The deficit was simply due to tax income falling as the economy shrunk, and the labour Government already being in a large deficit when that started.
We currently have the smallest deficit since 2004. That's four years before the crash, during an unprecedented debt fuelled boom.
