Before Britain joined the EU and its economy grew as a result, the country was known as "the sick man of Europe". Amongst other things, there were tight restrictions on taking money out of the country.

In a few years time when +Judith Hembrow and I reach retirement age, we are quite likely to end up with almost no pension at all because of #brexit.

We paid in during our time in the UK but we may well be stuffed in our old age. Thanks ever so much, brexit voters !

The ABB Power One inverter which connects the solar panels on our roof to the electricity supply failed a few weeks ago. A new inverter has a huge embedded energy and costs €1000. The manufacturer says that repair is impossible. I repaired it with a €5 part. i.e. by doing myself the service that the manufacturer should offer to its customers.

Brian Bilston is a poet on Twitter. He's often socially conscious, not normally political, though today's poem makes it appears that he's now as concerned as all thinking people about what is going on in the UK.

I've suggested for some time that people in the UK would be wise to store some food as a defence against the worst possible outcome of brexit. We now know that the UK government is itself stockpiling non-perishable food because of their fear of a future shortage. The next step from this is rationing of supply.

If you're in the UK please buy at least a month's supply of tinned and dried food. Also some liquids. If the worst case brexit happens you'll still have something to eat. There's no downside. If an agreement is reached which results in nothing much happening then your cupboard will simply look slightly too full later in 2019 and you'll then be able to spend less at Christmas.

If you fail to keep any food yourself, bear in mind that Guardian readers who have read this article may have a stockpile that you can plunder ;-)
