MARMITEGATE: you've got to be fucking kidding me


It's not that I haven't been posting, it's that there's been utterly nothing newsworthy at all.

Case in point:

Telegraph - MARMITEGATE: Tesco store shelves empty. OMG WTF LOL:

Now, it seems what is now being called 'marmitegate' has hit the shop floors.

The Telegraph visted three central London Tesco stores to see whether after only a day there would be any impact on stock.

Are Brits panic-buying that opinion-splitting brown spread? Or is there nothing to worry about?

The shops do not seem to have run out of Hellmann's Mayonnaise yet, or Persil and other washing and cleaning products.

Pot Noodles were also available, although in the Caledonian Road Tesco Metro, shoppers could no longer buy single packs of the Classic Curry flavour.

High drama in the UK!

Look on the bright side: The press has now demonstrated that the British public remains open to the classic Coronation Street plot arcs about Annie Walker buying a replacement teacosy, or Albert Tatlock complaining about "all that foreign muck". No need for Gail Tilsley's next boyfriend murdering people again, the Brits remain open to the 60s high drama of the proletarian Oop Norf.
