There is a butter shortage in France. Where once was a butter mountain, there is now a butter black hole.
Not a single pack of butter in the shops yesterday!
So, what has happened? Well it seems as if there are two reasons. Firstly, like most of my farming neighbours, none of them can be bothered to produce milk only to make a loss, and secondly it seems as if China has suddenly found a taste for French butter, and the big dairies are cashing-in.
No butter rich croissants at the bakers, Lady Magnon will no longer make crumbles, and even our Christmas cake had been put on hold.
Obviously I blame young Macron, and if things don't change by Monday I shall take matters into my own hands.
To the barricades mes amis!
