Greek News: A man who really loves the salty taste and crumbly texture of feta is busy stockpiling the cheese ahead of the predicted Greek default from the Euro.

Supermarkets, as well as Greek and Turkish delicatessens in the Islington area of London have attributed the massive spike in sales of feta to just one man, Matthew Rennet, 32.

“What can I say, I really love feta cheese,” said Rennet. “If Greece’s economy collapses I don’t want it to have a negative impact on my lifestyle, so I’m bulk buying all the feta I can get my hands on.”

“I’ve had the spare bedroom turned into a giant walk in fridge and I’m storing it all in there. I also have a shotgun, if anyone reading this thinks they can break into my house and help themselves to my supply of delicious feta.”

Since stockpiling the cheese Rennet has had little contact with his friends, and his wife recently left him. But Rennet has no regrets, saying that “the real suffering begins when I can’t enjoy a Greek salad.”
