Graphic perhaps it comes at the right time to celebrate 2 years anniversary of Brexit. However, Hannah and her tweet reminds the UK that 80% of their beef…comes from Overseas (Ireland); add to this dairy pastures and dairy feed (very dependent on Ireland too). From the graphic, the UK is still very dependent on exports. Ireland has four times sea to landmass so imagine what we can do with the Atlantic and wind as a source of energy.
