So im running round prepping and scaring the family into doing the same...lol ...my mothers response? ive being getting an extra crate of wine every week since xmas , bless Brexit on the piss .
Actually im just kidding im not prepping for Brexit , im prepping for Universal Workhouse , I would normally be stocking up now as i dont have to pay the water rates till April but i expect this devious sly government will try a huge Universal Credit push , hoping that nobody will notice the extra deaths it incurs and use Brexit as the excuse .
I did ask my daughter about her views on a second referendum , she is a staunch Remainer but she said that in the event of a second referendum she would vote leave on the grounds of democracy , we voted the powers that be should accept that . Didnt expect that one, but it shows she was well brought up...lol
Meanwhile im quite enjoying spreading wit and wisdom on the 48% Preppers group on Facebook , come and join in , theres so many panicked people on there who need talking down to common sense and between you lot theres about a 1000 years of common sense and hard times that at a time like this its good to share around. Havent quite got my head around the dopey ones who are buying there third freezer , have 100 Frey Bentos in the cupboard and own 10 cases of chick peas , a thing theyve never used before . But the attitude seems to be we must buy as much as we possibly can , because if nothing happens we can always afford to give it to the Food Bank ..go figure . Theres also those on a limited income who are crapping themselves because they dont have the money to stock up , there anxiety levels are scary .
The more i look at the current situation , the more i realise that it wont be food that will be the problem , we may have lack of variety and the cities may well struggle with civil unrest . The big problems i think will be lack of consumer goods , daft shortages of things that are sitting on a dockside because theyre not a priority , the stuff you just order off amazon because its broke or you want an upgrade . Cant see this being a problem for me, but for huge swathes of the population who are used to having what they want when they want it this isnt going to go down well . The rude awakening that the £1 in your pocket cant buy what you want here and now ....
