Andrew Bailey, the Governor of the Bank of England said he has “run out of horsemen” when counting the shocks facing the United Kingdom. With runaway energy and food costs, he’s warning of an “apocalyptic” food shortage, and soon.
Blaming the war in Ukraine for the crisis, as most politicians and central banking tyrants are doing, Bailey suggested (and this is a particularly interesting choice of words for biblical prophecy scholars) that governments have “run out of horsemen” to deal with runaway inflation, which is quickly turning into hyperinflation.
According to a report by Strange Sounds, he also used the term “apocalyptic” to describe the current situation we all face. The Governor said that he had spoken to Ukraine’s finance minister and added: “The [risk] I’m going to sound rather apocalyptic about I guess is food.
“Ukraine does have food in store but it can’t get it out at the moment. While [the finance minister] was optimistic about crop planting, he said at the moment we have no way of shipping it out as things stand, and it is getting worse. That is a major worry. It is not just a major worry for this country, it is a major worry for the developing world. I am by no stretch of the imagination a military strategist, but whatever can be done to help Ukraine get its food out would be a huge contribution.”
This food shortage has been coming for a long time and all the “coincidences” affecting the supply have just been adding up.
Food prices are already surging because of fears of disruption. Shelves were going bare before Russia “invaded” Ukraine, which supplies large parts of the Middle East with grain. There is a risk that most families will be unable to afford to eat if they can even find the food to eat.
Food riots could begin anytime because our society runs on a “just in time” type supply chain. Once people start to feel like they cannot fill their refrigerators, the anger will begin to cement as the ruling classes will attempt to control us using food.
