It's the media as usual stirring up the sheep with self fulfilling prophesy's
No food - supermarket shelves empty.
No petrol - massive queues until it's gone.
Even, - no arsewipe. (you know the rest)

They wield real power, or at least enough to disrupt everyone's lives and that is not a good situation.

The f**king news channels have done it again. Reporting on the morons queueing for petrol and shock/horror/ probe "people shouldn't be doing it", but it's the effin' TV news that started it off in the first place. F**kin' twats.
IF, they hadn't mentioned it previous we wouldn't have the panic buying now.

What they need to do is impose a minimum purchase of, say, £40 so that people will only fill up when they really have to do so. Problem solved at a stroke (2 or 4).

So that's £20 in the bike's tank and £20 all over the forecourt then ;)

All we need now is the bin men going on strike and it's Winter of Discontent 2

I'm struggling to think of one thing about the country that isn't completely f**ked right now

Oh but we all get a free vaccine so it doesn't matter of course...

At least we have that massive trade deal with America to console ourselves with. Oh, hang on.

Amazing the way they are leading everyone to think that Brexit was a bad idea.

We have to rule ourselves.

I know it's more expensive in the UK, but I could fill my car at least twice for that price.

What's causing the shortages? Things seem normal on this side of the Atlantic.

A shortage of qualified drivers to keep the supply lines open.
