Re: The New Veg on the block

Fascinating! So fascinating I went to the Asda website to see it in closeup :oops: It sounds like the texture is brilliant (and that's not nothing in terms of veggie food) but as a sub for meat and fish etc, it's slightly dodgy nutritionally: less than 1% protein, sadly. I think jackfruit was a bit ...

Re: Brexit in October?

To be fair, its a 'worst case' scenario, not a racing certainty. Easy to miss that bit, it doesn't get much mention in amongst all the plagues of locusts etc. None of us know what's going to happen, even the Government which is worrying in itself but it doesn't mean its all going to be 'as advertis...

Re: Brexit in October?

I just found the text of what's said to be item 15, on another forum: 'Tariffs make UK petrol exports to the EU uncompetitive. Industry had plans to mitigate the impact on refinery margins and profitability, but UK government policy to set petrol import tariffs at 0% inadvertently undermines these p...

Re: Brexit in October?

I check the Daily Wail every day, and their Brexit article actually had prints of the Yellowhammer document, which was unusually precise for them :mrgreen: so I decided to find my own copy :mrgreen: The government website doesn't make it easy. I searched Operation Yellowhammer on the govt home page,...

Re: Food in your emergency bag

It's very individual, I think. For me, it depends on how I'm feeling and how my stomach's coping with everyday life :oops: I might want something very plain - a pack of oatcakes, or Holland and Barrett used to do a 100g pack of sesame seed sticks, they were good and gluten free too.

Re: Antibac hand gel: substituting with diluted disinfectant?

Good point - I may use a little too much each time, as I have the opposite problem, blowing on my hands to dry them :)
