Britain’s homeless saddened by courgette shortage

Britain’s homeless were saddened today by news that a courgette crisis is sweeping the country.

Poor weather has affected the harvest of the tasty green veg across Southern Europe – and experts warn aubergines could be hit next.


The awful news spread across social media this morning, and now the country’s homeless have joined the discussion.

Warren Smith, 36, a homeless man in Suffolk, said: “This really is awful. The idea that some middle-class family can not get hold of courgettes is heartbreaking.”

Speaking from his freezing shop doorway while being forced to beg for change to buy something to eat, he added: “I dare not even think what it would be like for Waitrose shoppers if aubergines are next.”
