Is It Not Now Getting Really Pathetic
My homepage just came up with a Mirror headline, I did wonder who was going to come up with this first, year after year nonsense ( unless you know someone who beat them to it) Quote. Christmas Fears As Shoppers Warned To Expect Empty Shelves After Supply Issues.

I doubt anything will be in short supply before Xmas, on Xmas, or even after Xmas, or the rest of this year and throughout 2024. The media in this country need to get a grip and stop this crazy scarmongering. Its a certain fact when they use the word FEAR, fear of shortages of whatever, they are making the people of this country look weak and stupid around the world, and they have no idea what the real meaning of fear is.
People that live in FEAR are people who at present are living in war zones, two major ones that we are all aware of at this present moment in time.
They are not just living in fear of their lives, but in fear of where the next spoonfull of food will come from, or the next drop of water.
I watched an elderly woman a few nights ago in Gaza, she was close to 80 years old, siffting through the bombed out building, in fact there wasn't a building standing, looking for wood that she was able to carry, what for? to make a fire to inable her to cook what little raw food she had.
NOW that is fear, it also shows how strong and resilient these people are no matter what is thrown at them. We could well learn a thing or two.
the headline actually says Christmas dinner fears etc...
seems a fairly fact-based story. There have been more, and stronger, storms this autumn than usual, and that's always going to have an effect on crops. Broccoli and cauliflower especially badly hit (fortunately I eat neither at Christmas or any other time).
I ignore everything like this now. 'Project Fear' inspired some elements and t.b.h. I think governments rather like illogical, panicked populations who will flock to do as they are told.
I will tell everyone, however, that the farmers here (big potato and root veg. area) are struggling to harvest due to mud and rains - so they may be pricier.
