Barnier 'flabbergasted' at UK attempt to reopen Brexit specialty food debate. Just another tactic to run out time. Barnier’s patience is to be admired.

EU says UK is trying to water down protection for EU speciality food & drink while keeping protected status for British specialities such as Scotch whisky, Melton Mowbray pork pies & Cornish pasties. UK wants protection but won’t reciprocate. Hypocrisy!
It's known as sabotage. “the UK is attempting to water down protection for EU geographical indications, while keeping the special status for British produce, such as Scotch whisky, Melton Mowbray pork pies and Cornish pasties.”
