Day 555 of self-isolation - Things fall apart

Things fall apart

Should I blame Brexit, or Covid, or an incompetent government?

The first consequence is that gas providers are caught in a squeeze. They offered fixed price contracts, but they werent expecting gas prices to go up sixfold. Four energy firms have gone under, and four more are likely to follow.

The second consequence of soaring gas prices, is that fertiliser manufacturers have closed down, at least temporarily. But that has led to a shortage of CO2, a by product, and that impacts the food industry. 

And my weight is down to fourteen stone three pounds
