GREAT British Bake Off’s Prue Leith worried about food standards post-Brexit

Leith took to Twitter at the weekend to encourage people to support British-produced food, warning about “problems that could be coming our way.”

In one tweet on Saturday she said: “British farmers are the best in the world, let’s support them this week. Everybody who cares about British high food standards should back our farmers, after all we are what we eat!”

The Great British Bake Off judge’s comments were met with disbelief as Prue has always been a fierce defender of Brexit, openly admitting on BBC’s Question Time in 2018 that she had voted to leave the EU. Members of the public pointed out that concerns over food standards and funding for farmers were issues raised by Remainers time after time.

Louis Barfe on Twitter said: “It’s not like anyone forsesaw this absolute shitshow heading for us in 2016, is it? This came right out of left field. Oh hang on, 48% of us did.”

Responding to Prue’s worry about chlorinated chicken, Jay Rayner tweeted: “ I do wonder what the hell @PrueLeith thought was going to happen when she first voted for then fiercely defended Brexit.”
