Obviously, we all want to know what all these Brexit deals and talks mean for the everyday people, will there be a leadership election? Will the pound decrease in value? And, clearly importantly, will the UK run out of Mars Bars?

According to Buzzfeed, food experts told the cabinet minister, Michael Gove, that in the case of a no-deal Brexit the UK could run out of Mars Bar quicker than you’d think.
This is all down to the imports required to make on of Britain’s most-loved chocolate bars – in the event of a no-deal Dover could shut down imports and some of the ingredients required to make it could not be stockpiled on main-land UK, they need to be imported and go off very quickly.
The experts are reported to have told Gove the UK’s entire supply of Mars bars would run out within two weeks.
Before you grow in fear that out beloved sweet treats could slip off our shelves too soon, Mars Incorporated said there will be plenty of Mars Bars in the UK.
They told LADbible: “Certainty, economic stability and continuity are clearly the best ingredients to minimise any possible disruption from Brexit to our operations.
“That said, like most businesses, we are preparing for different types of Brexit scenarios. Whatever the outcome, we will be ready to continue to deliver to customers and consumers the products they know and love.”
Following all the resignations from the Prime Minister’s cabinet, the Brexit supporter, Gove decided to stay loyal to the PM and keep his place in the cabinet to fight to make sure Britain leaves the EU with a deal in place to prevent he possibility of no deal mayhem.
Buzzfeed reported Gove’s gained experience running the Department for Environment and Rural Affairs (Defra) has convinced him that the ‘alternative of no-deal was unconscionable’.
According to the site they say a source, who has been briefed on Defra’s internal discussions on no-deal, says the officials are saying any disruption of food and drink imports and exports could last more than six months. This could result in shortages of good on supermarket shelves. This would also put a huge amount of pressure on businesses that depend on the availability of the imports and exports.
