I think it works as the Scottish government isn't collapsing, have a leader who isn't an international joke and they're national team are shit. And its still raining.

I give no credence to Fargle's threats of insurrection if Brexit falls, but I believe in food riots and looting. Usually 24-36 hours after the supermarkets run dry. It's a real possibility.

Mrs A and I were discussing the modalities of being in France at that point, but we would want to take the grandkids as well. I may suggest it to my son's in-laws, as they have a place in France, too.

For the first time in my life I am seriously worried for the future of Britain. Or England, at least.
And panic buying and rationing. Post Brexit England is one of the reasons I'm considering a move to Scotland this year.
Yes well going on about food shortages has a tendency to cause panic buying.

Whitehall’s ‘potty’ plan to keep NI lights on if no Brexit deal

Flotilla of barges with energy generators would be sent to Northern Ireland if UK crashes out of the EU

The issue has arisen because Northern Ireland relies on imports from Ireland for electricity supply as part of a ground-breaking single energy market deal struck in the wake of the Good Friday Agreement.

According to a leak to the Financial Times, the plan would involve bringing back equipment from military zones such as Afghanistan to build up capacity in the Irish Sea.
