In fairness, if there's nothing on the shelves in the shop, your bill at the checkout will be lower.

Maybe that's what they meant? But if it was true he's have written it on the side of a bus, wouldn't he? That's how it works now.

The higher price will be when we have to buy it all on the black market off spivs like in 'the good old days'

Ah, The Daily Excess. That great noble newspaper that's not full of $#!7 all the time. Obviously the experts they talked to in 2016 didn't know what they were talking about.

They got blue passports back, and the average EU IQ went up by 10 points!


Post Brexit, what is the difference between a dollar and a British Pound?
A dollar.


What do I know about Brexit?
Not a great deal.

It all depends what you read how you feel about Brexit.

Currently Germany has higher inflation than the UK, no doubt that is due to us leaving the EU and them not depending on our substantial contributions.


And now I'm going to

Prices arent just going up in UK.

Kraft Heinz has increased prices on more than half its products in the US

"Poor harvests in Brazil, which is one of the world's biggest agricultural exporters, drought in Russia, reduced planting in the US and stockpiling in China have combined with more expensive fertiliser, energy and shipping costs to push prices up."

Extract from a 'wake up call' below from over a year ago...many years of supermarkets making huge profits by screwing UK farmers and their 'cheap labour' forces into the ground, over reliance on importing food that we used to grow in the UK, moving away from seasonal produce, (eg. do we really need imported produce out of season with a huge carbon footprint) and of 'Just in Time' supply chains with no warehouse stock to act as a buffer in the quest for ever more profit for the few at the top of the chain....eventually it was bound to collapse and the Pandemic was the shock that has exposed the vulnerability of so called modern 'efficient' systems, meanwhile the mainstream media delights in driving up the next panic with shock headlines saying 'don't panic' knowing their readers and viewers will of course panic and rush off to stock up.....

Vulnerability of the United Kingdom’s food supply chains exposed by COVID-19 (June 2020)
"Insufficient capacity in domestic food production, just-in-time supply chains and Brexit-related labour market challenges have weakened the UK’s food system. Building redundancy and diversity in the food system is essential for resilience in the COVID-19 recovery. The approach of JiT supply chains, reliance on imports and diminished domestic food production has reduced the resilience of the UK food system and increased the risk of both blockages and deadlocks."

Meanwhile in the USA, they can't so easily blame Brexit.... :lol:

America's bare shelves: Walmart and Costco limit toilet paper sales while toy companies warn parents their kids' Christmas gifts won't arrive in time thanks to backlog at ports, rail yards and on the roads
Supply chain problems that have been tormenting retailers for months are showing up in America's stores
Around the country, there are shortages of goods on shelves in Target, Costco, Home Depot and Sears
The issues aren't specific to any one type of good and are down to problems with shipping and distribution
Cargo ships off can't get into overworked ports to drop off goods and are hovering off the coast
There is a global shortage in truck drivers which is stalling distribution of goods and railroads are also jammed
The cost of shipping a single container from China to LA reached $20,000 last month - four times what it cost last October
There are fears that some of the backed-up ships at the port in L.A. will not be emptied before Black Friday - the biggest retail day of the year and the start of the Christmas shopping season
Some retailers are telling people to buy Christmas gifts now to ensure they arrive on time
There is no immediate end in sight: Biden has launched a White House supply chain task force but businesses fear the problems will stretch on for months yet
Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell predicts the issues will last until next year - which will prolong inflation.
