Oh the resilience of the Great British public. Much has been said about how a nation that live through the Blitz has crumpled under the weight of a few inches of snow, but nowhere was the crisis deeper than Waitrose yesterday.
Lack of delievies saw the not-so-super market run out completely of veal escalope and other essentials (including bread).
The store ended up closing at 4.30pm (although the appropriately named Iceland stayed open for a whole hour further).
If we can't survive one day of this, I dread to think what havoc a real crisis would wreak!
