Blog: ‘Don’t blame bl**dy Brexit, get off your a**e’ James Martin slams food shortage complaints – Express

Former Saturday Kitchen presenter James Martin has told people who have been complaining about food shortages in kitchens to “get off their a**e” and stop blaming “b****y Brexit ”. The Yorkshire native, 49, made the comments while discussing his new cookbook, Butter, before lashing out at Brits for having a reliance on “convenient” produce.

When asked how to deal with food shortages affecting us in the kitchen, the celebrity chef explained that Britain’s departure from the European Union was not solely to blame.

James said: “Don’t blame b****y Brexit, get off your a**e.

“It’s not Brexit, it’s the perfect storm of everything,” he added.

The ITV star went on to hit out at the way Brits think about their food, revealing that we’ve become too reliant on convenience.

Earlier this year, the celebrity chef brilliantly dismantled Remainers’ Brexit fears over food shortages, as he argued the UK “was not going to b****y starve”.

Although he admitted “Brexit wasn’t going to be straight-forward”, he claimed in 2017 that “we’re not going to b****y starve”.

He said: “Being a farmer’s kid, I thought the least we can do is support all the amazing producers that produce all the food or wine or beer in the UK.”

The former BBC star told the publication it was time to “talk about what’s amazing about this country and its producers”, as opposed to just “slagging it off and moaning”.

James fronted BBC cooking show Saturday Kitchen for a decade before deciding to step away from the show in 2016.
