Quite where to begin with this one . A few days ago I joined a facebook group for UK preppers , seemed a nice enough helpful bunch, ive belonged to a good few US groups of a similar vain , once again helpful useful contacts and ive learned a lot from them about shelf lives and what you can and cant store long term , Now I do bulk shop quite a lot mainly because we live in a food dessert here and were very rural , plenty of acerage of veg around us but nothing but the occasional Coop or Spar type shop available for everything else or online shop . Ive noticed for the last few weeks that theres not much stock of basic items in the few local stores , didnt really put two and two together till i joined this UK prepper group and realised that the panic buying for Brexit has begun .
There were people posting there £500 tin shops , moaning about finding places to store stuff , yesterday the first time ive ventured out into Lincoln itself I noticed a woman in the Poundshop just sweep an entire shelf of Fray Bentos pies into her basket , it took 5 shops to manage to buy Ibuprofen yesterday , its the weird gaps in the shelves you notice .
Read the UK site yesterday and someone said the government wont provide pet food and will tell you to destroy your pets , this did actually happen during the First World War so today i would imagine that will all go missing from the shelves .
The most disturbing posts ive seen are the people wholesale buying food to sell it a profit if Brexit goes tits up . Yes we know its all a bit Millennium Bug and people will believe any pap they read on the internet. But in the back of your mind theres a realisation that our Government are a total shower of shit who can organise nothing , so what do you do ?
Well i may plant extra beans this year and ive stuffed a few garlic bublets in a plant pot , I remembered the big food shortage of WWII was onions of all things , they still mainly come from Spain , so ive got a couple of bags of dried ones in ...ho hum we live in the countryside and are surrounded by cabbages and leeks we will get by , but what happens in the cities when the energy drinks run out?
