Jeremy Corbyn claimed today that American food is peppered with & # 39; rat hair and maggots & # 39; while accusing Boris Johnson of a & # 39; sold out & # 39; have concluded a trade agreement with Donald Trump.

In a dramatic escalation of his rhetoric, the Labor leader said Johnson was trying to hijack the Brexit & # 39; so that he could lower the standards.

The experienced left winger warned that the Tories are preparing to & # 39; Thatcherism on steroids & # 39; to release the NHS to American pharmaceutical companies and to deprive employees of their rights.

The attack followed in Harlow this morning, when Mr. Corbyn tried to start his campaign.

& # 39; If given the chance, they expire with our rights to work, our rights to vacation, vacation and leave, & # 39; he said.

& # 39; If given the chance, they will lower food standards to American levels, where & # 39; acceptable levels & # 39; of rat hairs in bell pepper and maggots in orange juice are allowed and they will put chlorinated chicken on our shelves.

& # 39; And if they get the chance, they will weaken the rules for air pollution and our environment that keep us safe. They want a race to the bottom in standards and protection. & # 39;

The jibe is a reference to the difference in approach between the US and EU food standards. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has guidelines for & # 39; maximum levels of natural or unavoidable defects in foods for human use that do not pose a health hazard & # 39 ;.

For comparison: the EU does not set & # 39; action levels & # 39; stuck for foreign bodies in food.

However, critics point out that this does not necessarily mean that the standards are higher – only that the FDA describes in detail what enforcement measures will entail.

What are American and EU food standards?

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has guidelines for & # 39; maximum levels of natural or unavoidable defects in foods for human use that do not pose a health hazard & # 39 ;.

It emphasizes that the levels are not intended to prevent & # 39; poor manufacturing practices & # 39; to apologize, but a recognition that any contamination & # 39; economically impractical & # 39; is.

In spices, the agency says that an & # 39; average of one or more rodent hairs per 10 grams & # 39; the threshold is to declare a batch defect.

The level for apple butter is four hairs per 11 grams.

In fruit juices, everything below five fly eggs or one made per 250 ml is considered acceptable. The guide notes that the problem is only & # 39; aesthetic & # 39; rather than a health risk.

For comparison: the EU does not set & # 39; action levels & # 39; stuck for foreign bodies in food.

However, critics point out that this does not necessarily mean that the standards are higher – only that the FDA describes in detail what enforcement measures will entail.

Conservatives have consistently denied that food standards will be scrapped after the Brexit, or that the NHS & # 39; on the table & # 39; would lie in trade negotiations with the US.

Mr. Trump also made it clear that health care would not be part of an agreement in an LBC interview last week, in which he also warned that Mr. Corbyn & # 39; very bad & # 39; would be for the UK.

However, Corbyn said that Mr Johnson is preparing to betray commitments he made during the 2016 EU referendum campaign.

& # 39; What Boris Johnson's conservatives want is to hijack Brexit to unleash Thatcherism on steroids, & # 39; he said.

& # 39; Johnson and the Leave campaign promised to rebuild our NHS. Johnson stood in front of a bus and promised £ 350 million a week for the NHS.

& # 39; Now we find out that £ 500 million a week can be taken from the NHS and transferred to major drug companies as part of its plans for a sold-out trade deal with Donald Trump. & # 39;

At the same time, the Labor leader will say that conservatives want to eliminate a whole range of employment and environmental protection in a move towards a more deregulated American-style economic model.

He said the Conservatives wanted to get Britain out of the EU because they knew voters would never return to the politics of the 1980s.

& # 39; Margaret Thatcher's attack on the working people in our country has left scars that have never been healed and communities that have never recovered & he said.

& # 39; Conservatives know they cannot win support for what they intend to do in the name of Thatcherism. So they try to do it under the Brexit flag instead.

Mr. Corbyn reiterated Labor's commitment to sort the Brexit within six months & # 39; sort & # 39; when they come to power, giving voters the final say in a referendum.

& # 39; It will not be a repeat of 2016. This time, the choice will be between leaving with a sensible deal or staying in the European Union, "he said.
