OK --joking apart- what should I be hoarding?

I don't fancy hormone enhanced beef from America, I like my lurpak , a lot of seeds come from Holland. Then there's parmesan.

In London. Keen but lazy.

    What's wrong with British butter?  and British bacon, eggs, beef, lamb, poultry?   Mature Cheddar instead of Parmesan?  Get some seeds while you can in case prices for salads and toms and stuff go through the roof.

    We managed very well in Britain in the past from my memory of it. We didn't eat anything processed, we imported from NZ and other Commonwealth countries, had butter and milk from our own cows, and lovely freshly baked bread right out of the oven from local bakers.

    Why would I hoard anything? We can manage perfectly well if only people grew their own, and learned how to cook from scratch. That would involve avoiding imported beef and chicken from America of course.

    And we now have 30% fewer cows, 80% fewer farm workers and a lot fewer local bakeries

    Tinned tomatoes? I think they're all Italian.

    I did my grocery shopping today and was all was British except the tea and dried mango!
    Have a couple of extra tins of soup and corned beef stashed but really don't think there is going to be quite the shortages most people envisage!

    Exactly RG.  Might be difficult to get soon.

    Always best to buy local and fresh if you can but not easy for the cash poor and those with no cooking skills.  The two often go hand in hand unfortunately.
