Marmite. What's the big deal with that anyway? I tried some on a piece of toast years ago, it was OK, but certainly nothing special. Certainly nothing compared to cheese on toast with Lea & Perrin's anyway.

Great idea. Over the next few years the UK will undoubtedly experience turbulence. If key business's need govt help, bring it on. Anything to support the way forward. I couldn't give a stuff about previous dogma.:thumbup:

I like the stuff, plus melted cheese, which is also good, scores way higher on the weightgain scale. Marmite is relatively guilt free.

Exactly. All of a sudden everyone is getting hysterical just because Britain wants to support businesses here and create employment.

It's the stuff of true Britishness

I don't see any hysteria, but the government could have done that any time it chose. Nothing to do with the EU.

Let businesses fail and you get slaughtered for it. Support businesses and you get slaughtered for it. Go figure. I’m gonna build me another drain…

It still has nothing to do with the EU, manch. In fact, the motivations behind Brexit have little to do with EU. Don't you find that a bit ironic?

The Marmite was OK, I just couldn't buy into all the hype I guess.

Surely that would be fish and chips?

Curry is more typically British than the vast majority of the Immigrants.

But they haven't done so previously, have they?

But it's one of the things the EU does across the poorer regions of each member state though. I guess we know where the money we won't be sending to the EU post-Btexit will be going?
