    Comment: As this dreadful Brexit process comes to fruition what we need is a dynamic, clear thinking and forthright leader, and THAT is what we are fortunate to have in Minette Batters. The Yorkshire folk might say, “cumeth the hour, cumeth the man”’ well cumeth the hour and cumeth this amazing, dynamic, forthright and clear thinking woman!! We are so lucky to be lead by Minette Batters.

    Comment: Why don’t we address the nation to ask for workers for horticultural sectors as the NHS did recently?
    The response from the nation was overwhelming. The food industry needs help now. It would surely be cheaper than flying in workers from Europe.
