Business Secretary Kwasi Kwateng said the government was "concerned about instances of shortages".
"I don't want people to get the impression that every shelf in every supermarket is bare - that is not the case but we are certainly concerned about instances of shortages, we are looking at the supply chains of critical industries and we are reviewing that situation," he added.
I'm off to the shops with a 'You can take this toilet roll from my cold dead hands' attitude.
I'm not sure if it's just sabre-rattling or a pre-emptive strike that misfired.
A completely unwarranted attack on my air-space has just taken place by a large buzzy thing. The patio doors were open because Smoker believes in open borders. However, I am only in my boxers and it seems the Buzzies took the opportunity to attack me when my defences were down.
The attack was short-lived but this has now prompted me to increase the Military budget in order to buy an anti-missile defence system.
German troops entered Paris. If France had a proper Tabloid press they'd be going LARGE on this, but nothing. It's just a footy match. It's a cultural thing and we really need to look at ourselves 'cos this is the way to behave.
Last night a heated discussion between myself and some not-seen-for-ages mates. My friend uses blue Rizzlas - they're thinner. I use Reds as I don't like the taste of the cig when it's wrapped in a blue. His 'theory' is that blues are better because there's less paper and that means they're more healthy than reds. I pointed out that he's wrapping his blue around tobacco that states clearly on the pack that it 'contains over 70 substances known to cause cancer' and so on a scale of dangerous substances, paper is right down the list. He was having none of it and it split the table. Eventually I conceded that the maths involved was 10,000 killer points with the red and 9,999 with the blue. I really have missed these stupid pointless arguments about trivial matters with my mates and it wasted 10 minutes of our lives but I felt like the old times were back. Football was off the table - they're all Bristol Rovers.
