Naturally, the British press is making a meal out of "Jamgate" as the perfect Brexit metaphor. Not because it's bad or dangerous advice (expiration dates can be kind of scammy, and health experts agree that removing the top layer of moldy jam makes it perfectly fine to eat), but because their Brexit-pushing, poverty-ignoring PM is acting like a coupon-cutting Marie Antoinette, unable/unwilling to read the mood the nation.
Meanwhile, someone else has already grabbed Jamgate as a PR opportunity: opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn, whose camp has eagerly responded to the gaffe by affirming that, as a true jam aficionado, he frugally finishes all of his jars before allowing but an inch of it to develop oppressive mold. This, by the way, happened in the same week an unauthorized biography claimed that the sorta-OK-with-Brexit Corbyn also enjoys eating cold beans straight out of the can. Jeez, no wonder these politicians wouldn't mind going post-apocalypse for a few decades just to get their old passports back.
Cedric's pretty sure that marmite is just fully molded jam, and you can yell at him about that on Twitter.
