Bittersweet Brexit: The Future of Food, Farming, Land and Labour

by Charlie Clutterbuck
£19.99   paperback  Pluto Press (2017)

Bittersweet Brexit: The Future of Food, Farming, Land and Labour by Charlie Clutterbuck *Selected as one of openDemocracy's Best Political Books of 2017*
 
Although widely criticised and hugely wasteful, The Common Agricultural Policy did at least afford British farmers a degree of support. Post-Brexit, that support will vanish - to be replaced with a woefully misconceived agricultural export drive that cannot possibly deliver.
 
Bittersweet Brexit suggests a solution: paying workers decent wages in the agricultural sector could radically transform the nature of farming in Britain. It would improve yields, increase sustainability and ensure greater self-sufficiency at a time when food security is becoming a vital issue.
 
This scenario provides a progressive, forward-thinking and optimistic future for food and farming in Britain, which, unlike many other industries, is currently being ignored.
