Bookmakers Paddy Power are offering odds on what will be rationed first after Brexit.

The betting firm are offering 12/1 that food rationing will be officially introduced by the end of 2019.

And they're taking bets on what household items will be restricted first.

Fuel is the favourite, at 4/1, followed by Milk at 11/1.

Avocados are in third place at 13/1.

Further down the list, a white wine clampdown is 33/1. Gin rationing is priced at 50/1 and chicken at 66/1.

Bottom of the list are Mars Bars at 150/1. During his leadership campaign, Boris Johnson opened almost every event he spoke at with a joke about Mars Bars being available after Brexit, saying "where there's a will, there's a whey."

 

Separately, Paddy Power are offering 11/4 on KFC having to shut down UK branches due to a shortage of chicken.

Industry experts yesterday warned Britain faces fresh food shortages for months if a chaotic no-deal Brexit leaves perishable produce rotting in lorries at ports.

The Food and Drink Federation (FDF) called on the government to pause competition laws to allow firms to co-ordinate and direct supplies with each other in the event of no deal.

Doing so is illegal, as the law stands, and companies engaging in such practices risk being fined by the Competition and Markets Authority.

The FDF said: "We asked for these reassurances at the end of last year, but we're still waiting."

Retailers such as Tesco have warned that leaving the European Union on October 31 without a trade deal would be hugely problematic for the industry as much of the fresh produce is imported and warehouses are stocked full ahead of Christmas.
