Environment secretary Therese Coffey has had a bad day, well that is a HUGE understatement.
Watch this video to kick it off.
It gets worse, you wouldn’t believe it.
Ms Coffey came under fire for suggesting turnips were an alternative to seasonal vegetables that are running short in shops.
Asda, Morrisons, Aldi and Tesco have limited sales of certain fruit and vegetable items.
During an urgent question on the subject, Conservative MP Selaine Saxby suggested consumers could avoid issues by “eating more seasonally and supporting our own British farmers”.
Ms Coffey replied: “Many people would be eating turnips right now rather than thinking necessarily about lettuce, tomatoes and similar.
“However, I am conscious that consumers want a year-round choice, and that is what our supermarkets, food producers and growers around the world try to satisfy.”
Liberal Democrat leader Sir Ed Davey summarised the minister’s response as “let them eat turnips.”
She also claimed Britons struggling with food bills should ‘work some more hours’.
Coffey added that ‘one of the best ways’ for people to boost their incomes was ‘potentially to work some more hours, to get upskilled, to get a higher income’.
Other people remembered an episode of the legendary comedy Blackadder, and a turnip Baldrick bought for a LOT of money, much to Lord Blackadder’s dismay.
A very strange prediction of the future?!
