Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Haven't you forgotten the food riots?

For some reason the English populace was surprised to find that its dietary habits had quickly reverted to those of the 1960s: Meat and two veg, wherein "meat" is Spam or tinned sausage and the veg is cauliflower or mushy peas. Kippers, or jellied eel were still available at the newly-rejuvenated mash houses, to be washed down with half a (domestic) bitter.

Not being able to find avocado toast or charcuterie or their usual Languedoc wine, and with curry shops shut due to the deportations, the people revolted in disgust at what was on offer, the opposition to American chicken quickly faded.
