Every fifth resident of the UK, against the background of a possible exit of the country from the European Union, is stocked with food and medicine. Such people spend an additional 380 pounds for these purposes. This was reported by The Guardian newspaper, citing a study of the financial institution Premium Credit.

In total, the British have already spent £ 4 billion on these expenses. In addition to ordinary citizens, large companies also stockpile. The Pets at Home pet retailer began to stock up on fodder, while the Domino’s Pizza restaurant chain began to stock up on sauces.

In order not to face a possible increase in transport prices, wealthy people began to buy it more often. In 2018, more than 3.8 thousand expensive cars were imported to the UK. This is 16% higher than in 2017.

On November 15, 2018, the British Cabinet of Ministers adopted an agreement on exit from the EU. On April 11, 2019, the European Union and Great Britain agreed to transfer Brexit to October 31, 2019.
