Is there really a ukulele shortage in Britain?
There's a nice piece in The Times today claiming that Britain is facing a shortage of ukuleles, with most supplies sold out until a ship arrives from China in June. They're blaming the craze on the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain, although I suspect enthusiastic MT coverage is to blame. Of course, the story of a shortage is nonsense - eBay has blenty of ukes, from the classic £18.99 Pink Flying V - #270132175720 to a rather elegant Martin at £275 - #120129269037. (Picture shows Rev.
