Depending on which side of the fence you’re sitting on, come October 31st and Brexit Day we’ll either be ruling the golden waves or going to sea in a sieve. And if you subscribe to the more negative/realistic/remainery view – well, now’s the time to start stocking up for the inevitable food shortages and panic ahead.
Luckily, there’s lots of great Amazon Prime Day for remainers staring a self-sufficient future in the face when the shops are out of stock. Here’s our pick of the best deals to stock up now.
Do you take a different view? Our Brexiteer’s Guide to Amazon Prime Day should enable you to bring in Brexit Day with a cheer. Find it on our news page.

3. Loo roll
Let’s face it – no deal Brexit looks pretty miserable. If our quality toilet paper supplies fall away too, and we’re left with nothing more than the kind of tissue you might find on a whaling vessel – you’ll be glad you took up this remarkable stockpile-tastic offer of 54 rolls for under £20.
4. Anti-bac wipes

At our strict one-wipe-per-clean strategy, you’ll have a clean and bacterial-free home for eight and a half years.
