The End of the World as we know it

I just read in the Independent that Canada has banned the import of Irn Bru, Bovril and Marmite. How are we to indulge in satisfying those Guardian induced cravings for pies, toast with marmite, and late night hangover preventions? Truly a sad day.

    I think the US banned (some of) these several years' back (as well as Vegemite) - since then US vistors have stocked up here in Canada.

      I wish they'd pay as much attention to products you inhale, the fumes of or touch your body, as in shampoos, cleaning products, creams etc, Cleaning products and cosmetics are basically totally untested both in Canada or the US.

        But don't you feel so much safer knowing we are finally protected from those spreadable foreign threats !!!

        I'm pretty sure I saw a group of "Marmiters" along with some foreign cheese lovers huddled in the back of an unnamed dive bar talking treason...
