Even as a steadfast remnant, I long ago concluded that there was a convenient conspiracy of silence over low wages for British farm workers, trucks, food processors and abattoir staff (“Quarterly call to employ British workers”). Report, 28 August).

Those who had a pleasant scenario were their employers, consumers and large supermarket chains. So, what to do? Food prices will inevitably have to rise, which is long overdue. And people need to get better at it.

Sorry, but the British public and farmers voted in favor of this outcome, supported by the National Farmers’ Union which sat on the fence throughout the Brexit referendum.

You reap what you sow, as they say.
