Why does running out of sperm matter? Surely Remainers don’t want to have any children in post-Brexit Britain, as it’s going to be such a terrible place.
I welcome this article from Dr David Bull showing all the ‘bull’ is coming from the fear-mongering remainers.
The only way we will run short of medicines is to suggest there will be a shortage resulting in panic-buying of stocks that leads to a totally artificial shortage. I remember in the 1970s that there was a rumour of a sugar shortage that led to panic buying of sugar in the shops and by the time it ended everyone had several bags of sugar in their store cupboards!
The serious question I have is why we are so dependent on imports for common essential drugs like insulin and EpiPens? Why don’t we make them here? Brexit is an opportunity to make us less dependent on imports that we should take.

A very reassuring article by a person who is well informed. I love to read that the EU is more reliant on us, it’s not just cars.
