LONDON – In Westminster's Houses of Parliament, there is a shipping box from which Prime Minister Theresa May outlines the policies of her government and the ballot box by the British voted in favor of leaving the European Union on 23 June 2016. Now some in Britain are turning to the so-called "Brexit Boxes".
With the termination of the European Union's exit, the prospect of an unprecedented crash is approaching some Britons preparing to prepare for a British natural disaster.
From the outside it looks like any other white cardboard box.
In the box, things start to get interesting: there's Feuergel, a water filter and a whole month of freeze-dried meals – in flavors like Chicken Tikka, Mac & Cheese.
It's basically all you need to survive the apocalypse. Or – maybe – a hard Brexit.
The company that makes the kits Leeds describes as "Brexit storage made easy."
The Brexit box is not cheap, with nearly $ 400 for about 100 meals. Owner James Blake told NBC News that he has sold more than 600 boxes and has seen more than 20 percent sales growth since December.
Britain will leave the E.U. on 29 March, and since Parliament does not agree on an agreement, the possibility of a no-deal ex-pice is still on the table.
Experts warn that Britain would leave the EU. Without an agreement on the future relationship with the bloc, there could be chaos at the border, which could lead to a lack of food and medicines.
Earlier this week, heads of major UK supermarket chains and grocery chains sent a letter MEPs warned of a "significant disruption" when this happened. Almost a third of the food consumed in the country came from the European Union.
"Our ability to mitigate these risks is limited, we reserve as cautious businesses whenever possible, but all frozen and frozen storage is already in use, and there is very little storage space in the UK," it said "We expect significant risks to maintain the choice, quality and shelf life of food our customers expect in our stores, and there will inevitably be pressure on food prices from higher transport costs, currency devaluation and tariffs."
The Die Government has recently intensified its own preparations, with some 3,500 troops ready to help with disruptions, but some have chosen to take matters into their own hands.
In a Facebook group titled "48% Preppers "- a reference to the 48 percent of the country who voted for Remain in the EU – people exchange tips and dis Carry out the practical preparations for the Brexit.
Across all social media, the British have been telling anecdotal stories about storing non-perishable items from supermarkets.
As the deadline rises, many believe that it's best to stay calm and carry on – but be prepared for the worst.
