Struggling to find food?

Luckily, the thing we all wanted from Brexit - SOVEREIGNTY - is as nutritious as any meal.

Went to small national Co-op branch yesterday. Gaps on shelves, notices and repeated tannoy message saying sorry for lack of stock doing their best to get back to normal.

Remainers warned of this happening and were told we were lying. Not gloating, just sad things have come to this

McDonalds join Beefeater, KFC and others on the growing list of restaurants & pubs unable to obtain food & drink supplies. McDonalds will simplify its menu, including the removal of all milkshakes and bottled drinks.

People voted for Brexit for many reasons. But this is proof positive that the Remain leaders were not lying when they talked about some of the harm that would come from voting leave.

But not to worry the important and the rich Brexit supporters have been rewarded with high paying jobs, business sent their way, titles etc. Corruption is not just something that happens in other countries. Under the present Govt it is rife here to the despair of many decent Tories. I can see Margaret Thatcher leading a Leave group but not being corrupt like Johnson

Can someone point to any real-world positive about Brexit? It wrested control of the Titanic from the erstwhile crew and handed it to a bunch of idiots - the result is that the iceberg is still there but there are far fewer options to avoid it.

Are you aware that the EU spouses of UK citizens are regulrly being denied settled status if they have no "independent" proof of residence? (and no, it seems giving birth to UK-born children is not enough). Are you aware that, as from October, EU citizens will no longer be able to enter the UK using their biometric ID card, but must have a passport containing the same data. Nothing says "welcome" more than rules designed just to make life more difficult!

The already powerful are grabbing more power, while the super rich are busy further enriching themselves. The legislative programme being followed post-Brexit is mostly concerned with cutting food standards, abolishing worker protections, curbing government scrutiny, restricting the right to protest and rigging elections (voter suppression, boundary changes and constraining the already weak electoral commission) etc. There's not really anything tangible to benefit ordinary/working people; e.g. increasing wages caused by staff shortages are offset by rising inflation. Meanwhile the predominantly pro-Tory media here mostly stay silent and wave flags because their readers don't want to know.
