So. Everyone is pig sick of Brexit and the cartoon characters dealing with it and frankly ,I am beyond caring now. At the beginning of the year it really did look as though we may have to endure shortages etc. and (if?) it happens this year we may still.

Like many of us, I stocked up on items I considered essential.However, since our youngest moved out, we find that we use so much less! I truly cannot wait for our next electricity bill. :lol: The garden is producing as much as we need right now, and we will certainly be good for spuds well past Autumn.

The boss of Tesco said this week that stockpiling “ Long life foods” could be a logistical issue , “as Christmas stock would be in the system”.

Does anyone here feel that here may be a problem come Autumn, or are you pretty relaxed about it, like me?
I AM totally sick off brexit. Whether it happens or not what I do or dont do, most things will stay the same for me. I am ..like Deeps said...going to keep prepping. After all it is part and parcel of life now.
One sure sign of the decline of a civilisation is the inability to reproduce the technological achievments of its past

An article this week from Business Insider;
"Almost half of Brits are stockpiling food, medicine and clothes as UK heads for the cliff edge"

It's hard to know whats fake news / scare mongering any longer, everyone is just guessing at the end of the day.

Here we go again..... :roll:

This morning the OBR reports that a "No Deal Brexit...... COULD...... cause a recession in the UK."

So the BBC reports that... wait for it. :lol:

OBR reports that a "No Deal Brexit...... WILL ......... cause a UK recession."

Needless to say Phillip Hammond is the first to the cameras and microphone across all channels. Perhaps it was just a slip of the tongue so to speak, but that one word makes a huge difference to how people will interpret the report. Don't tell me that the BBC doesn't have an anti Brexit agenda.
:tinfoil

I am not reading it that way...No deal cause £30bn economic hit, watchdog says https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-49027889
In three words I can sum up everything I have learned about life: It goes on.
