Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
It appears that our fascist member doesn't know how to select a bit of text and paste it into a Google search box to figure out where it comes from. (Handling that much stuff on my very old phone makes it difficult to wrap quotes in the appropriate metadata - I was lucky the session didn't crash).

Anybody who does that will see that less complete versions of that list have been publicized from many sources in the last few weeks. Some of the shortages have already started, including medications my wife and I are prescribed. E-Surgery didn't say exactly where they got it, my guess is that it was from a report compilled for the Operation Yellowhammer Civil Service team. I imagine it's been quite widely circulated around medical and pharmacy professionals.

A quick look at the label on a few boxes of prescription medications, and a look at the BNF listings of who makes the alternatives for multi-supplier drugs, would make it pretty obvious why there's a problem. It wouldn't be hard to reconstruct the list from standard public references about pharmaceutical logistics. When this was first raised publicly a few months ago I looked in our medicine cabinet: of the 17 medications my wife and I take between us, 3 were made in the UK and the rest in the EU27.
