    Bob the troubadour winning the Nobel is a category error.I admire his ouvre but his lyrics too often descend into meaningless doggerel to be considered as literature without the music.His one novel was atrocious and he just doesn’t demonstrate the sustained intellectual rigor to stand alongside previous laureate.He is the Trump of Nobel winners.
    Phillip Roth must be scratching his head .

      Partly because they can, but I’d say that some of the items probably either are made in the UK or are distributed from there.

    It should serve as a wake up call on food sustainability here and the importance of growing, eating & buying local produce.

      Unfortunately the cost of growing replacement goods here would result in crippling prices hikes. ‘

      It makes much more sense to grow bananas elsewhere than in Meath.

      The current trend against free trade and towards protectionism is going to prove very expensive and future generations are going to have to scramble to resolve
