Britain to leave free world

Won’t be long now.

While I don't disagree that Britain is on its way, I'm not sure this is an indication of our departure. Have you been to Britain? There are labels on everything!

A lot of people here already boycott food that has "Country of Origin: Israel" on it. I think this practice was especially prevalent during the 2007-2008 Israel-Gaza conflict.

Labelling like this isn't new and surely allows consumers to make an informed decision about what they buy, whatever their opinions. There will be some who choose to buy products with these labels attached, on the basis that they come from the settlements.

This, however, does not bode well for the UK — some might reasonably claim that we left the free world some time ago.
