Record Wheat Prices Force Italians to Boycott Spaghetti

Aginflation: wheat prices have just reached multi-year record levels.

And the unthinkable happens: tomorrow, September 13, Italians will boycott pastas, no spaghetti, fettucine, farfalle or rigatoni in Italy, as the country goes on its first-ever pasta strike.

"Angry Italians are downing their forks in response to a 30 per cent price rise in the nation's favourite food, along with steep rises in the price of coffee, mozzarella, bread, biscuits and schoolbooks."

A coffee strike is also planned.
