The shops are only doing what the government told them to - to prepare for Brexit.

As stockpiling requires paying for storage, that will mean hiking up prices. Leave voters are responsible.

It's only 'biased' because all the news is showing Brexit for the nonsense that it is. It's not the BBC's fault all the experts and business leaders are highlighting how damaging it will be.

And they open HYS to get clicks. People want to vent about Brexit, ergo it gets daily HYSs. If you've got a problem, go elsewhere.

'Anti working-class' would describe the actions of Jim Ratcliff, Ineos who will be moving 4x4 production to Germany.

Go whine about 'anti working-class' at him, he is a massive supporter of Brexit and has shafted working people in Wales. Money walks and talks, it has talked but walked off.

Go on, explain that in terms of how Remainers made that happen, bless you I think.

Manufacturing jobs have been being off-shored for about 15 years.

It has been cheaper to make products in Poland ever since free movement of goods.

You can sell at the same price in the UK, but make for half the price abroad.

Hurts UK jobs, drives UK wages down, extra transport damages the environment, plumps up the richest 1%s dividends.

Maybe to avoid that the headline of this story has been changed since initial publication to a mild one about people choosing cheddar over brie. The previous focus, that Tesco "had been stockpiling some non-fresh food as it prepares for potential shortages" has been buried in the sixth paragraph. But I rather think "food bills could climb by 5% on average" is a bigger issue than cheese selection.

The most intellectual observation of the day. This has nothing to do with panic buying (which , as far as i am aware, is not happening in any event). This have everything to do with Brexit and the utter devastating chaos that it will cause. And first off, your weekly shop is going to go up by 5%. Shame that was not written on the side of Boris' battle bus.

There's no sense in supermarkets stockpiling at all. It means they can't adjust prices for supply and demand day-to-day like they'd normally do, so they could be left with tons of unused produce to dispose of. Also, physical storage costs money.

Except, some dummies decided to leave the EU and more dummies couldn't get a trade deal, so supermarkets MUST stockpile, and we'll all be paying for it.

Shops like Aldi, a German supermarket with a handle on pricing of local and imported goods, why would we buy British if it was dearer?

'These messages' are nothing to do with any reason to leave. Trivial little price rise possibly. Mostly actually large on a few items, nothing on most. So what? Just not an issue.

The ultra-hardliners on both sides are the ones who will be treated most harshly by the verdict of history, I suspect. Most people voted the way they did in 2016 on their judgement of the balance of pros and cons, NOT because they "LOVED BRUSSELS!" or wanted "TOTAL FREEDOM!" Most people accepted both options had merits. Sadly the obsessives have the loudest voices, but they're NOT the majority.
