Download our free Dig for Brexit poster
With food shortages just one likely outcome of a no-deal Brexit, download and display our poster and Make Britain Rake Again
A no-deal Brexit would likely be the most serious economic shock since the Second World War – with even pro-Brexit ministers like Dominic Raab, and even Theresa May herself, admitting that industry should supply 'stockpiles' of food.
British citizens were encouraged to 'dig for victory' during the 1940s – food grown in gardens or allotments was off-ration, and so a great way for families to try to improve on what they had available to eat.
Yes, things are slightly different now. Yes, the UK is now a country with 22m more people in it now than then, and with a far greater proportion living in cities and with no gardens. Yes, for those without gardens there is a waiting list of 40 years in many council areas for a plot.
But we say this is all Remoaner naysaying. So download our poster, display it prominently and let's Make Britain Rake Again!
