Toilet Paper Makers Warn No-Deal Brexit


A no-deal Brexit may lead to deficits of at least one household essential, toilet roll because some toilet paper supplies might not endure long-term border delays or panic buying in the event of Britain crashing out of the EU.


Essity, which produces the Velvet and Cushelle toilet paper labels for the UK market, said it was developing robust emergency plans across its supply chain to cope with no deal, but cautioned that stocks were not limitless.

The company produces tissue in the United Kingdom and said it had built stocks of raw materials and spare parts to ensure supply in the event of short term border delays. It’s also holding stocks of finished products that are imported or exported between the United Kingdom and the EU.


The company’s comments followed Plaid Cymru MP Jonathan Edwards using a written question in Parliament to ask ministers for details on how long stocks of toilet paper will last in a no-deal situation and the Cabinet Office minister Simon Hart said the UK Government was striving to ensure the best possible preparation to maintain the flow of goods, a response that Jonathan Edwards labelled as farcical given the absence of assurances.


As far as possible, Essity is developing strong contingency plans across the entirety of their supply chain to alleviate any short term risks following a no-deal or hard deal of the EU but in the event of a no-deal, the Government will prioritise the movement of goods at the border while proceeding to take a risk-based approach to controls and checks on goods to reduce further friction.

But Mr Edwards said that this was the farcical level that we’ve fallen to and the British Government can no longer or even ensure we have the needed supplies of toilet paper in a crash-out Brexit because the Government are already willing to flush the economy down the toilet, but now we won’t have the paper to clean up after.

And as much as this revelation lends itself to toilet entertainment, it displays the grave destruction a no-deal Brexit would do, even to our most fundamental supplies but of course, MPs won’t run short of bum wipe because they all talk a load of crap anyway but don’t panic there are loads of copies of the Labour manifesto available because quite honestly this country is going down the pan.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
