Large-scale riots have broken out across the UK at the news that the price of Freddo bars is set to rise to 30p.
The news broke earlier today and 14 people have already been hospitalised in clashes with riot police.
One rioter told WalesOnCraic:
“Day by day, week by week, this government is eroding the very fabric of our childhood. I remember when Freddo bars were just 10p and we are now reaching nearly three times that amount. Think about the children – this government is just wanting to destroy the magic of childhood. We want Freddo bars reduced back to 10p so that future generations can enjoy going to the shop with their pocket money and buying a Freddo bar.”
A spokesman for the government said:
“It’s got fack all to do with us mate. You need to speak to Mondelez, the people who actually make that shit.”
Shops in Swindon were earlier looted of all Freddo bars while several caravans in West Wales were torched by Welsh Language Activists who needed a reason to burn down some holiday homes.
