Food shortages – Salad lovers first to feel the strain

We had some issues with eggs last year, then its was “fowl” play for the run into Xmas with birds for the table so expensive one chap found it cheaper to actually fly to Turkey rather than buy one. This new food issue is a little different as there’s a round-up of shouty politicians blaming it on Brexit – In this we shall not get involved (but we’re happy just to blame Reese-Mogg and Boris with a side of Farage). This time it is all about the supply chain with a combination of cold weather and flooding whre the majority of the missing shelf space stuff comes from, namely, Spain and Morocco. Cancelled ferries due to bad weather and our UK farmers can’t afford to turn the greenhouse heaters on. And so, rationing has been introduced, and here’s what it looks like :
