As part of yesterday's shuffle Gove is "to head a new committee tasked with tackling the UK’s food supply chain crisis".

Nearly solved, then.

PS: Anyone want to take on tasked in one of the usage threads?

Now that Gove is in charge, the problem doesn’t actually exist so there will be nothing to solve. And yes, I dislike verbifying nouns, as, probably, does Mr Gove.

That can't be right, I thought that we had a the oven ready turkey of a deal :lol:
A shortcut has to be a challenge, otherwise it would just be the way. No situation is so dire that panic cannot make it worse.
There are two kinds of people in this world: those can extrapolate from incomplete data.

No point in having experts if Gove's in charge,problem will be solved PDQ :?

Of course there'll be them who'll claim it's all the 'superstate's' fault........

"Tesco has warned government officials that empty supermarket shelves caused by a national shortage of HGV drivers could lead to panic buying across the UK in the lead up to Christmas.
“Our concern is that the pictures of empty shelves will get 10 times worse by Christmas and then we’ll get panic buying,” Andrew Woolfenden, Tesco’s head of distribution and fulfilment in the UK, told a Cabinet Office meeting last week."
