Daily Mail stockpiling Jeremy Corbyn smears in the event of a no-deal Brexit

The Daily Mail has revealed they’ve been forced to stockpile slurs against Jeremy Corbyn to prepare for a possible no-deal Brexit. In the event of a no-deal Brexit, smears against Corbyn may dry up – forcing the Daily Mail to stockpile as many as possible now. ‘We love the idea of a no-deal Brexit, but it could seriously affect our supply of spurious stories and half-truths against Jeremy Corbyn. That’s why we’ve taken the proper measures to build up as big a reserve as possible, just in case,’ said Daily Mail editor Geordie Greig. The Daily Mail has claimed they already have a reserve of 100 smear stories to use against Corbyn and they hope to double that figure by the end of the month. ‘This is our top priority at this time,’ confessed the editor. Current smears stockpiled include ‘Corbyn dined on falafel with Hans Gruber just hours before Nakatomi terror plot’, ”Illegal immigrant claims Corbyn let her live in his scruffy beard for five years’ and ‘Jeremy Corbyn causes cancer.’

UK warehouse space nears capacity as firms stockpile for Brexit

Three-quarters of UK warehouse owners say their space is full to capacity and storage costs have soared by up to 25% in the past three months after a surge in Brexit-related inquiries. A survey of UKWA members from across the country last month found 85% had received Brexit-related inquiries. Businesses have been seeking storage for goods ranging from food ingredients to cat food, packaging materials and finished consumer products in an effort to ensure stocks do not run low in the event of no deal or any deal with the EU that slowed up the free flow of goods. “We have seen more unsolicited inquiries from people out of the blue looking for space. He said Horizon had been asked about storing a wide variety of goods including carpet tiles, telecoms equipment and food. The Food Storage and Distribution Federation (FSDF), which represents 350 warehouse owners and 75% of all commercially available frozen and chilled food warehouses in the country, said its members were turning customers away. Tesco has rented frozen food containers outside its largest stores for the rest of this year. Earlier this month Amazon wrote to UK-based traders who sell on its platform to suggest they consider sending stock to its continental European warehouse to prevent any export delays. Companies ranging from the carmaker Bentley to pharmaceutical firms such as GlaxoSmithKline and Sanofi, the folding bike maker Brompton and Premier Foods – which makes Bisto, Sharwood’s and Mr Kipling – have all announced plans for stockpiling. One warehousing expert told the Guardian that major pharmaceuticals, alcohol, tobacco and car firms had put plans in place early as their products were both expensive and long-lasting, meaning any storage costs incurred could be more easily absorbed.
