Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
My slightly tongue in cheek comment on the linked story on food shortages
Sneer, sneer, sneer! Just you wait until glorious global GREAT Britain sucks in food imports from all over the globe and our humble EU quality controlled CAP subsidised food exports can't compete. We'll end up having to sell Irish Gorgonzola to the Italians and Camembert to the French.

Humble farm workers will have to become fintech workers in Dublin City and the roads to Rosslare will be blocked by UK exports trying to sneak past the EU blockade across the border from N. Ireland. Our housing crisis will be exacerbated by hoards of refugees crossing the Irish sea evading border controls in perilous 60 ft. yachts and a new potato famine will break out as supplies of our Tayto crisps run short.

Ryanair will be the UK's sole link with the outside world and even upper class people will have to use it confusing Priority boarding with first class.. Prime Minister Bojo will be heard to proclaim "let them eat cake" and ordering his troops to keep the Irish border open while bombing Teheran at the behest of President-for-life Trump.

Great Britain will be a global power again while we are derided as a province of the Fourth Reich and ordered by Berlin to shut ze border... until the populace rises up and embraces the British Empire again..
