Empty shelves in the shops, no petrol anywhere across the area, limited availability of blood test container tubes for Doctors resulting in the rationing of patient tests……..Another day in the Brave New World after Brexit.

As Hawklad rather adroitly put it this afternoon “this is what happens when a country needs leaders but votes in CLOWNS. Really nasty clowns.” As one commentator put it – the kinda clown who would happily pull out the plug on your life support machine so they could charge up their mobile phone.

It’s all going very dystopian here in Britain. To make the Huxley story link then we need a bit of genetically engineered trickery. What follows is the lamest link ever. Genetical engineering in the form of baking. My baking. Yes that is my latest bread loaf. Cheese topped Gluten Free, Dairy Free Honey and Sunflower Seed Bread. Huxley would be proud of me – it tastes rather fine. BUT…

“Dad that’s all very well but weren’t you supposed to be baking a sponge cake .”

Oh yes, I wondered why I was making bread when I already had a full homemade loaf still to eat. I must have got confused.

“That’s what happens when a kitchen needs a parent who knows what he’s doing and ends up with a MUPPET. Admittedly a muppet who can now bake bread.”

  1. When the news first broke about you guys having no casoline and there’s a huge market for truck drivers one kind of not believe it. Unbelievable in modern Europe, well outskirts of Europe I guess. I wonder if there will be a small revolution soon 😮 Good luck!

  2. I’m so sorry to hear about your woes, but will gladly take a slice of your bread. It looks delicious! I’ve got some blueberry bread to make that I keep putting off. Perhaps tomorrow will be the day. However, I’m cheating, use a gluten free mix. Making it dairy free and using a liquid egg substitute and a dear friend’s blueberries I’ve been keeping in the freezer. Hang in there!

      1. I thought you were trying to combine bread and cake, but just spelled it break instead of “brake.” Rather ingenius, I thought. Don’t let Spelchek take the credit, lol,

      2. Now that you mention it … on The Great British Bake-Off, they often comment that a cake is too bready or that a bread is too cakey. So it is a thing! 🤣🤣🤣


  3. I love your humor, Gary 😂But rather a lovely muppet in the kitchen than a nasty clown in the government. Btw. the loaf looks awesome… and I can only imagine the wonderful smell.


  4. Yum! I’m still not sure I could do dairy-free cheese though. I have a huge addiction to all things dairy… cheese, butter, ice cream (which I fall asleep eating while standing🤣🤣) milk chocolate, hot cocoa…

    Brexit has been so wonderful for UK, right?! I wonder if all the people who voted for it are happy with the results?🤦🏼‍♀️🙄🤦🏼‍♀️
