    All hail brexit

    Again we were out of Bread etc. I went to some supermarkets and past a few greengrocers. Shockingly I didn't have to queue for a single turnip. Lots of fresh fruit & veg.

    Am I imagining things?

    So normal shopping for you is a Brexit success and the supermarket bosses are lying when they say there are difficulties importing food.

          So someone went for a loaf of bread although they didn't manage to point out whether they managed to buy one but deflected by talking about fruit and veg, Trumpian analogy at it's best...

            over a month into Brexit the supermarket shelves were full or being refilled.

            I got everything I needed.

            Just pointing out that despite the dire predictions about brexit we aren't queueing for Turnips yet.

              Has anyone ever queued for turnips? Turnips are harvested between June and October and can be kept for 3-5 months which means shortages will start about February to March so get yours in now if you're that concerned about them

              One of the reasons that there aren't any real shortages and less trucks going through ports at the moment, and this is well represented in media reports, is due to companies stockpiling at the end of last year due to both Covid and Brexit. Lets just see what happens when warehouses start to empty

                Ah like financial Armageddon immediately following the Brexit vote, its now coming soon.

                  The prediction after the breit vote was not so much that supermarket shelves would be empty, but that prices will be going up, which is already the case. The bad deal Gove negotiated however can easily result in the shelves not being stocked, which is also happening especially in NI.

                    At that point they will start to fill up again.
