Chocolate Strike in UK

Chocolate staff to vote on strike

Workers at Cadbury's four chocolate factory sites have voted in favour of holding a ballot on strike action.

Last month, the company announced it was closing its factory at Keynsham near Bristol and transferring production to Poland and Birmingham.

Full Story

The important thing here is NOT TO PANIC. It is only a short strike, and there is PLENTY of chocolate on the shelves.

There is NOTHING to be concerned ab.......

AAAAAAAARGH runs roundandroundandroundandroundandroundandroundandroundandroundand runs down to the shop and panic-buys EVERYTHING.

Meow Purrr :o

Wow, that's worse than here in the U.S. where all the television writers are on strike. If it isn't resolved, we're all in for a long winter of re-runs and reality shows.

IronGhost, naughty naughty :P. I read that!

Yeah, I'm a trouble maker, and get taken to the woodshed occasionally.

What I should have said was: "There is a good substitute for chocolate -- prayer."

No , they ARE smaller.

It's the same with Wagon Wheels - they used to be the size of dustbin lids, but now I can fit two in my mouth at once.

(the chocolates, that is, not the dustbin lids).

It's all an evil plot to baffle and confuse the Working Cat.

I'm unconvinced shipscat. Do you have some chocolate factory measurment data or something?

Otherwise i still think it's because things are bigger seeming when you are a child/kitten.

I'm with Cat. My dad used to take wagons wheels one at a time as it was enough for him, and he wasn't a kid actually he is smaller now than he was then, as Cat says, he could put at least 2 in his mouth now should the wish take him and he still wouldn't be satisfied.

Still not totally convinced. I will research at the shop on my way home from work. All in the name of science.

Hmm... there is a Wiki article on Wagon Wheels, and it appears you are correct 1.6.18... or perhaps the Illuminati have commissioned Elvis to ghost-write this article in order to sow doubt and confusion amongst Working Cats. (as so frequently happens).

One good thing.... Wagon Wheels are made by Burtons.. so if the Cadbury's strike is extended, we can still get hold of them. (I'm not sure who makes curly-wurlies).

It's definitely the Illuminati.

"Actually, an expert who frequents the site told us that they got ever so slightly smaller in the mid 1980s when production was switched from Slough to South Wales."

Here is my scientific anylsis for you. Nice, bourbons, custardcreams, rich tea, hob-nobs and mcvities digestives all feel exactly the same size as they ever did. Wagon Wheels do not. Case closed.
