The UK has suffered through a divisive referendum, its Prime Minister stepping down; a change in leadership and now Brexit.

There has been a lot to deal with.

However, a courgette shortage is the straw the broke the camel’s back.

British people are done.

A consequence of cold weather in Spain and Italy means the production of certain vegetables, like broccoli and cabbage, has decreased.

Including courgettes.

Most of the courgettes sold in the UK are grown in the two Mediterranean countries, and the consequent shortage has driven people over the edge.

People are stocking up

It's terrible. Just terrible.

The devastation.


Jeremy Corbyn had the right idea with his allotment...

Households may have to start considering rationing what they have...

Some have already assigned the blame:

An emergency press conference - that's what we need!

The end is nigh...

Although, should a courgette shortage really top the priority list?
