One of the staples of British beach and pub life – the cheese and onion crisp – is said to be under threat from the combined impact of the hot, dry summer and Brexit.
The weather is said to be damaging the quality of this year’s onion crop – while Brexit threatens both the ability to pick the crop and – crucially – the availability and affordability of cheese.
Commenting, James McGrory, executive director of Open Britain – part of the People’s Vote campaign, said:
“It looks like the Brextremists are heading for crunch-time with their plans that threaten the availability of cheese and onion crisps.
“We never saw that on the side of any bus – if golden wonder Boris Johnson had told us that he would have been sliced and fried by the voters quicker than you can say ‘prawn cocktail’.
“More and more voters are quavering at the thought of a hard Brexit and others have joined the walkers away from supporting Theresa May’s hula hoop Chequers plan.
“Brexit has become a monster munch-ing its way through British life, threatening to destroy so much that is good. It’s time to tayto the establishment: we demand a People’s Vote on the final Brexit deal.”
