Thanks. That's a very small part of his argument, and we've just had another good chat in which I asked specifically whether the UK could exclude or tax food imports. He said, absolutely. Look at Japan. Food is a strategic issue and outside the WTO. My fear remains that after Brexit there still won't be good food system policies.

How Big Beer’s Fight Over Corn Syrup Explains American Brewing Today

Interesting piece from Tom Philpott at Mother Jones, pointing out that ALL the big brewers use additional sources of food for their yeasts. Some use corn, some use rice. A pox on all of them.
