Still not seeing how Brexit is going to change this behaviour. Are you saying that convenience food will get more expensive whilst fresh (in this case for argument's sake) internet chicken will get cheaper so the lazy people can suddenly become less lazy, cook fresh and therefore maintain a healthy NHS-free existence?



It comes to something when the argument for Brexit gets so far backed into a corner that disproportionate importance is placed on basically a few coppers of difference in fresh vs convenience food.

Actually the metaphor is "Why did the chicken cross the road?" where Brexit is the chicken and the road is "the deal"
