Food shortages.

Interviewed by Channel 5, Ms May confirmed that plans for stocking up on essential goods are underway – in case imports from the EU are cut off by clogged ports, or regulatory disputes.

But, asked it was “alarming” for people, the prime minister said: “Far from being worried about preparations that we are making, I would say that people should take reassurance and comfort from the fact that the government is saying we are in a negotiation, we are working for a good deal.

“I believe we can get a good deal, but, it’s right that we say – because we don't know what the outcome is going to be – let's prepare for every eventuality.”

She added: “This is not just about stockpiling. That concept, what it is, is about making sure that we will be able to continue to do the things that are necessary once we have left the European Union, if we leave without a deal.”


Dominic Raab finally confirmed the government was making extraordinary plans to stockpile food in case the negotiations fail – having refused to do so two days ago.

He told MPs the task would be overseen by industry, rather than Whitehall, and refused to go into any further detail.

In a TV interview on Sunday, Mr Rabb refused to discuss his no deal planning – sparking accusations that he was keeping the public in the dark about the reality of crashing out.

Asked again, by the Brexit committee, he said “technical notices” in the coming months would set out the preparations to keep supermarket shelves well stocked.

Mr Raab argued: “It would be wrong to describe it as the government doing the stockpiling. And, of course, the idea that we only get food imports into this country from one continent is not appropriate.

But we will look at the issue in the round and make sure there is adequate food supply.”

The Brexit secretary added: “I’m not going to give more detail until I can set it out in a responsible and full fashion.”

So the PM and the Brexit secretary have said stockpiling food is a plan because of shortages but it's untrue, So the people in charge of selling us Brexit are now lying too.

Medicine shortages.

I'm not bothering to copy paste as you'll just dismiss it anyway but in case you don't heres a link on the subject.

Old friend really but given how little time he now spends in the UK he sold up but still comes back for a few reasons (Children here from previous relationship plus a seasonal job which he enjoys that pays well) & it's quite tricky for him to find rental properties for 4 month leases hence he stays with me & the family...Calling him the lodger winds him up so obviously I do it constantly Grin

posy - do you know why everything worked at the turn of the millennium?

Because a lot of smart people prepared for it and ensured the systems had been tested and wouldn't crash.

The irony of this though is the OP calling it fake news and reply #3 confirming that they were simply reporting the words of our own government. You boys need to educate yourselves on what the word fake means.

there is just no way there'll be any disruption by a no deal Brexit because so many betfair forumites are making it clear there wont be.

The practicalities of the rules which govern air travel, and freight transport which vanish with Brexit will be replaced because of abracadabra.  Magic.

Obviously I'm being sarcastic.  Seriously it's going to be interesting in an academic sense because we'll have a demonstration of the operation of a modern State in a way we don't ever get to see.  (I'm not praising the EU by the way - non-member States all have a normally functioning State) it's just going to be interesting to see what the State actually provides which we are so used to that we don't realise it's there.  Like we cannot tell the earth spins as fast as it does but would notice if suddenly it stopped.

And obviously there will be no disruption if all the tasks which need doing are done (like agreeing the new frameworks for everything with the EU which we already have as members but wont have as non-members until they are agreed).  If all these detail things are not worked out, then of course there'll be disruption.

random forumites confirming it'll all be fine are obviously hoping that's true - everyone is - but there's no basis for such confidence.  The people in charge have so far demonstrated a high degree of incompetence in my opinion so no reason to assume they'll suddenly become highly efficient.

B0ll0x... false news after the event.

The smart people didn't have a clue as to what would happen.

They collectively shat themseleves and crossed their fingers.

However, the "experts" foretold of doom, disaster and armageddon.

The experts were wrong, the smart people were wrong and the numpties (taking a bow) made a lot of money!!!
