BRITAIN could soon be torn apart by toast sandwich envy, it has been claimed.
Experts said the ‘world’s cheapest meal’ will become so widespread that people who use slightly better bread will be plagued by sit-ins.
Martin Bishop, chief economist at Madeley Finnegan, said: “As society gradually breaks down over the next few months we will see more and more people comparing their toast sandwiches to the toast sandwiches of others.
“It will not be long before we see the emergence of an elite who can afford granary bread, either for the outsides or the middle.
“They may even be able to use butter instead of margarine. Not every day, but often enough for it to foment social unrest.
“Those people can expect a few angry tents outside their kitchen window.”
Protestor Stephen Malley said: “What about the people who burn their toast? Do they just get thrown on the scrap heap? With their own toast?”
Helen Archer, who has nothing but thin-sliced white bread, added: “I have invented the toasted toast sandwich.
“Unfortunately it’s not real. I just colour in some white bread with a crayon, but it makes my neighbours think I can still afford electricity.”
