Lego Reassures the Nation Over Christmas Supply Levels

By Gary Cutlack on at

The boss of the Lego group has said it's working hard with shops and suppliers to negate the impact of decisions made by those who find themselves lumbered with making a Brexit happen, with the company promising that Christmas 2019 won't be ruined by a shortage of its particular ranges of interlocking coloured plastic bricks.

Lego CEO Niels Christiansen said the toymaker has been "working with customers to make sure the flow of product won't be disrupted" should one or any of the forms of Brexit actually happen between now and the end of the universe, with Christiansen adding that he expects the lorries bringing in stocks from Denmark and the Czech Republic won't be "majorly affected" by any customs nightmares.

Which is good news for new prime minister Boris Johnson, and the indeterminate number of children that he's in charge of buying presents for. [BBC]
