Well. We didn't have food shortages when small family farms, local abattoirs, and wholesalers were in charge of the operation.....Still aggressively pro-Brexit and anti remainers.
Do I sense a bit of insecurity about the mistake you made when you voted?
Yes I remember reporting that a few years back on hereI recall he had a spot of bother on some publicity outing when asking for a bit more guacamole with his fish and chips..
Not many mushy peas in islington one imagines.
With so many different media sources. Is it even possible to tell them what they can and can’t report?Has the media been told to stop reporting food shortages?
Has anyone else noticed a shortage of food items in restaurants and shops recently? Maybe its just me being stupid.
Not essential by any means! But shortages I have noticed and on my mind are walkers ready salted crisps and diet coke.
Anyone else noticed anything?
No skimmed long life milk in Lidl for the last two weeks, used to come from Northern Ireland. Not sure what the issue moving milk from there to the mainland would be unless it’s a brexiteer lorry driver with covid issue.
Market share. The cartel have squeezed every link in the chain so hard for so long the pips are now squeaking.
Anyone who sees a potential food shortage and who wanted to stockpile would have to buy long life milk or milk powder if they wanted to keep it as a backup. These products were often made with surplus milk, milk volume is down at this time of year and some producers have had to dump milk as they couldn't get it picked up. I've heard modern factory food production has meant that milk powder is actually quite profitable these days though, and in demand rather than just being an option for storing surplus in the spring flush.
I couldn't get extra thick double cream for my apple pie. I had to 'make do' with clotted cream. The world is spiraling down the pan.
My local butcher has all the meats on his shelf that I wanted and could possibly want, my local shops have all the fruit and veg' I want and if there is a global shortage of kumquats with 6,000 air miles behind them then boo-hoo I'm gutted. No, not really.
