The underlying reason will be concerns about Brexit of course. I think it is a reasonable question to ask as to whether there will be shortages because of Brexit regardless or if Brexit induced panic buying will create them.

That of course may depend product by product.

Anything that happens as a result of Brexit is the fault of Brexit as it wouldn't be happening without Brexit.

Sorry i disagree with that.

Its as equal to saying any shortages are the fault of people as without them there would be none.

In some cases it might be a single issue, it might be wholly Brexit related and highlighting them would be fair enough.

If we were to see shortages of loose and packaged potatoes* though, why are you blaming brexit?

*My understanding is that the UK is wholly self sufficient in this product.

Checking out what everyone is buying in Florida in anticipation of the hurricane. Seems to be a lot of bottled water.

If my taps don't work something will have seriously gone wrong with Brexit.

When have we had food shortages in your lifetime? If we have them post Brexit would you not put two and two together?

Perhaps you should have tried another brand of shop.

When the pound collapsed post the referendum, I believe the Brexiter answer was it was overvalued anyway.

Anyhue, it the EU refuses to import U.K. potatoes post a no deal Brexit then U.K. farmers will not be able to give them away.

This merits a just giving page. We helped that Seanpalace84 out with his rented accommodation last year, surely we can collectively rustle up enough for Gonzo's sweet potatoes?

If you read my post further up the page, i have said the underlying issue will be Brexit but that does not mean it in itself is the cause. Human behaviour may be a bigger contributory factor.

That is why i pose the question as to which if any shortages, product by product would happen regardless of human behaviour? With a lot of foods they shouldn't be in short supply, but if people panic buy, they may well become scarce.

Tesco gets it from places like Egypt/Honduras/Spain/USA.....not really locally grown....what do you think will be the availability of sweet potatoes in the event of a no deal?
