Combined Canadian and British embassies and the bacon shortage … very suspicious!


So Canada and Britain announce one day that they will share some embassies that will be called Commonwealth Embassies. The next day the National Pig Associationin the UK announced that a worldwide bacon and pork shortage is unavoidable.

Maybe I’m being rash(er) but I think the Brits have their eyes on our bacon. Call me suspicious if you will, but these two announcements have to be related. Will these Commonwealth Embassies have sausage rolls and bacon sandwiches?  If so where will the required porcine filling come from? My guess is we Canadians are being drawn into these combined embassies merely to fill the pork gap!

New Zealand and Australia are also being invited to participate in the Commonwealth Embassy project; I therefore anticipate announcements of  lamb  and Vegemite shortages!!

(I know, for British people Canadian Bacon is really back bacon and what comes in rashers they call streaky bacon – but that’s just diplomatic mumbo-jumbo to confuse us.)
