US trying to create "Marmageddon"

WELLINGTON (AFP) – New Zealand Prime Minister John Key complained his personal supplies of Marmite were dwindling on Tuesday, amid a nationwide shortage of the salty spread caused by the Christchurch earthquakes.
In a culinary crisis that has been dubbed ‘Marmageddon”, the country’s only Marmite factory in Christchurch closed in November due to earthquake damage and will not resume production of the thick, black savoury concoction until July.
Mr Key said the shortage was already impacting on the prime ministerial breakfast.
‘I’m going to have to go thin I’m afraid. I have a very small amount in my office and once that runs out I’m obviously aware that supplies are very short,’ he told TV3 on Tuesday.
