At the risk of getting whined at for daring to post DM links, here's a couple of brilliantly witty articles.

Tesco said only: "We are currently experiencing availability issues on a number of Unilever products."
"We hope to have this issue resolved soon," the company added.
However, it did not indicate when that might be.
Sterling has dropped by 16% against the euro since the UK's Brexit vote.
Unilever is the UK's biggest food and grocery manufacturer with many famous brand names.
Household names
Among those currently absent from Tesco's website are Marmite spread, Surf washing powder, Comfort fabric conditioner, Hellmann's mayonnaise, Pot Noodles and Ben & Jerry's ice cream.
See? I knew it would happen.:cool:

Yes we all read the story. Unilever thinking they can capitalise and Tesco standing up to them. Hardly food shortages, personally I think I will boycott Unilever, you know try a different brand of pot noodle :unsure:, and I am sure the usual demand / supply economics will come into play.

When did you leave?

I haven't lived there for over 25 years, but I go back on family visits quite often - mostly to Cape Town. I was last in the Lowveld in 2000 and remember the floods that you spoke about. Loads of infrastructure damage. I bet it's changed a lot since those days. When did you leave?

Marmite. :wub:

Although I not had it since I got back here. Funny I did think about buying a jar this weekend though. I might have to rethink that plan, just hope malnutrition doesn't set in.

Bought a jar of Branston Pickle the other day (I think for the princely sum of $6). Delish in cheese sandwiches :thumbsup:

[QUOTE=amideislas;12074715]I honestly don't believe it was really "another agenda" it was reckless nationalism run amok and exaggerated well beyond any resemblance of reality by a wildly sensationalist, politically biased media. Fear of Europe and fear of "great" Britain being marginalised by it. It's been around since Britain joined.

Fact is, they simply had no clue and didn't care to (as later shown by the narratives from the brexiteers). All that mattered was to get out of that "corrupt, undemocratic dictatorship" that the tabloids led everyone to believe.

OK, so, the choice is made. But since it was Britain that had no clue and didn't care to, why does the EU owe Britain anything now? Shouldn't Britain have at least looked at the consequences? (OK, some did, but in the heat of the moment, it was dismissed as "scaremongering").

The "hard brexit" that seems to be on the table is exactly what Britain voted for. (Yes or no). And even as others say, they don't care. So.... What's stopping you? Is there something else you want?

Oh, access to the single market? Well, now we're back to square one. Might have been a good idea to have thought of that before deciding to leave it.[/QUOTE


The 'other agenda' I was referring to was that discussed by the Oxford Alumni in their debating circle. Lead by Boris they were scathing about the fact that the citizens of the UK didn't seem to mind being lead by Brussels (despite all Boris's efforts to diss the ideas coming from there in his lying article's for the Telegraph) They all agreed that THEY were the born leaders of the UK.and vowed to do anything and everything to get their power back. Which heh they did... Job done. The leavers should be happy... No?

Ja, the flood damage was incredible....... A friend of mine had a house on the Crocodile River which was completely washed away in a matter of minutes & she wasn't the only one it happened to. :(

Both White River & Nelspruit have changed immensely in the last decade or so & are both now fabulous places. A lot more crime now though.

We left in 2011 & from what I hear, the area has seen a fair number of us Muzungus leaving in those intervening years.
