I just buy British wherever possible... be that using a British supermarket rather than a German, or buying british produce, or a british companies product made o/s UK if no UK available...

Yes it probably costs me a little more and sometimes I miss the UK items as I'm not anal about it,...

But if we all did it, then Brexit wouldn't be a fkin problem would it?

Only been to Lidl once in my life and got a fkin parking ticket it took me so long to find the stuff I wanted (Of course I ignored the ticket and they gave up.. but another story).

Buy British and put two fingers up to the United States of Germany (EU).

And the egg 'crisis' is due to an EU country poisoning millions of eggs with a banned chemical.... but lets blame brexit. The problem is millions believe this shit...

Food here is far more expensive than uk - which i find pretty strange. Meat and poultry are around 25 to 50% more expensive, but the thing i really cant work out is why vegetables are so expensive. In Safeway the other day 1 red pepper, non-organic, was $1.69! You'd get a pack of 3 peppers for less than that in Sainsburys! And mushrooms - crikey they are $3 for really small box - smaller than the ones that cost 90p in Sainsburys... For bloody mushrooms... Mushrooms grow anywhere right - so why would they be so expensive? Oh and baked beans are $1.60 a tin - but i never buy them cos like most other things they are too sweet here. So actually we're not doing badly with food prices in England.

The author of the article replied and simply stated 'devaluation' but as a lot of manufactured food has eggs in, with the cost of an egg doubling in price, that effect is going to be reflected in UK food prices. The problem for UK is will government ensure eggs don't go to industry abroad rather than to the customer. No British newspaper is talking about this. Instead the Standard simply wishes to blame Brexit, talk about being a bad egg old boy...

The only other news item https://www.farminguk.com/News/Fipronil-scandal-and-Brexit-pushing-d...

----

In Romania there is a new crisis, after the butter! This time the eggs, which have disappeared for a while from many stores. But with the reappearance of the shelf products, they have doubled their price, and the big manufacturers warn that the price does not stop here. And by Christmas, the price of eggs could increase another 60 percent.

For the first time since 2012, people have not found eggs in stores. "I encountered the problem at smaller stores. I did not find it, they were not. They were not on any shelf and I encountered it at several stores, "a customer told Stirileprotv.ro .

An average of 1.36 billion eggs are produced annually at national level. The most important quantity is provided by households, over 60%, while in the cold period the domestic consumption is provided only by the industry. But now we have not even relied on imports.

"They are not on the shelf in the store because of the European crisis, because of the fipronil, the pesticide found in eggs in some of the European states. In Romania, and due to weather conditions. Now only the industry remains, because in the winter the birds do not make eggs anymore ", said Aurora Alexandru, veterinarian.

The lack of eggs for several weeks has been a problem in the big chains, but also in small shops. But now, even if we find a lot of eggs on the shelves and customers can choose the best quality, we see the price doubled. That's because it's even more expensive 24% since leaving the farm. Thus, if we buy an egg with 10p, today it costs 20p and 30 eggs - £4.31 and not £2.50.

If this summer the eggs were sold to the producer with 3 1/2p, now they have reached 7p . Bird breeders warn that it's just the beginning.

"The demand is great, plus we need to provide it with heat, so the price increases. Then the analyzes the stores ask, even if Romania was not involved in the scandal of the fibronill, "Aurora Alexandru also said.

Hungarians and Poles also spend more 20%, while in Greece the increase was 150%.

Fucking shit newspapers and journos. It's incredible to believe that they are paid to peddle lies and blame everything on brexit, instead of actually finding out why food prices are actually rising. The exchange rate has been bloody marvellous for a while.

Italy to run out of eggs also, this will impact the price of imported pasta and so on. But the Evening Standard will blame Brexit.

We need to start closing the supermarkets on Sunday again.

I'd always shop on a Saturday evening when the fella with the stamp gun was out reducing the price of everything. Sometimes he'd have about 20 people looking over his shoulder.

This article suggests the egg crisis may be more prominent in the UK in the next few weeks.

"This is the highest price recorded for 5 years, and has “long gone past” the level of retail prices, said Mr Crossland."

Same statistics, completely different takes. Notice how the Evening Standard lies about real wages falling. Really? wages are contracting and UK is suffering stagnation Japanese style is it? Do fuck off sweetheart. You silly silly bitch, you probably think a stagnation is the Czech Republic.

https://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/879820/unemployment-rate-uk-job-fi...

https://www.standard.co.uk/news/uk/brexit-squeeze-on-living-standard...

No darling, real wages didn't fall they just didn't keep apace with inflation - as is typical. A fact that didn't bother you much the last twenty years previous to Brexit did it you fucking stupid remainer bitch!

It's similar to another article badly written recently. "More people voted in the Australia same sex vote than British did in Brexit vote." An absolute impossibility as more people voted in Britain than the entire living population of Australia. What they meant to state was; a higher percentage of the electorate voted.
