|Supermarket panic buying. |
at 17:27 27 Aug 2019
I very much hope that this is just a fallout from the Bank Holiday but popped into town (Staines) this morning and noticed that some aisles had been emptied of "storable staples " Long life milk , tins of fruit/veg/ eggs !!/flour and a few more things with a longer shelf life than most . Mentioned this to a lady on the checkout and she reckoned that it had been manic over the weekend and was likely to get worse with Brexit panic buying. .*
Sure I read that one of the leading supermarkets were planning on a bit of rationing pre 31 October as smaller retailers would be treating the larger guys as wholesalers to ensure a regular supply. Also that the Italians and Germany would be slimming down FMCG,s across the channel just in case of a snarl up nearer to the Brexit date and not wishing to end up with unsaleable stuff rotting away on the M20.
Anybody got any thoughts or experiences of this ??

Just doing a bit of "admin" and sorting out my train tickets for "Nodge" and blow me down those sub species at LESSER/GREATER/ANGLIA/ANGRIER have got bus replacement between LON Liverpool St and Ingatestone again.
A standard journey of 1' 7 is now pushed up to 1'55.
Appears that this is continuing thru' September as well. I thought that all the Crossrail work had been completed or is this something else completely ?
Apologies if this has already been posted.
ANGRY from Staines........GRRRR ........

Not sure what the conditions are like in IP at present but down here in TW land (Staines Surrey) the sky became very overcast and the blood red sun poked its face behind the cloud build up. Now conditions are reminiscent of that Icelandic volcano malarkey a few years back or some partial eclipses from the last 20/30 years.
No rain but plenty of wind and cloud cover 8/8. Just waiting for Richard Burton to do the commentary.... Spooky.
It is coming your way so watch out !!!

MONSTER RAVING LOONIES ... YOU KNOW IT MAKES (NON) SENSE.....
2017 General Election Manicfesto
28th May 17
We are to issue free beanie hats to all so when in government we can ‘pull the wool over everyone’s eyes’.
To provide a Strong & Stable Government we will relocate Parliament to the Tower of London.
France will be required to return Brittany.
All Europeans to pay to use the English Channel, and all Creme Anglais to be made in Britain.
Germany will have to pay for all treatment of German Measles, and Spain ditto for Spanish Flu.
Tactically we should start Brexit negotiations with a bluff induce, play for a freeze-out, refuse any rake-back and finish by buying the pot. (This will be achieved through an aggressive, sudden and massive bout of QE in the last week of the Brexit deal deadline.)
Tax payers to receive Nectar Points from HMRC.
The Loony Party will nationalise all other political parties . . . and when they don’t keep their manifesto promises they will be merged into Rainbow George’s ‘Rainbow Alliance’.
We will nationalise crime to make sure it doesn’t pay.
Atheism will be given charity status being a non-prophet organization. In the interests of health and safety all other theism’s will loose charity status and be regulated by their local authority.
The alphabet will be reduced to 23 characters. This will start by cutting the letters N. H. and S.
All Schools would have a jumble sale, fête or other fundraising event at least twice a month to help raise funds for those little extras . . . such as desks, books, paper, pens etc.
Voters will get a 30 day cooling off period, if you change your mind, didn’t like the result, or didn’t know what you were voting for, you can get your vote back.
Reduce the voting age to 16 (carried forward from our 1983 manicfesto) . . . (nicked by Labour)
One in one out (carried forward from our 2015 manicfesto) . . . (nicked by UKIP)
Pensions or how to get the grey vote . . .
The Labour Party’s leadership are hoping to get one or two pensioners to vote for them so they have brought out a new policy guaranteeing the Triple lock on pensions until 2025 . . . The Loony party of course will go far better and will buy several very large padlocks and some very heavy chains.
We shall replace the Trident defence system with a tuning fork.
Economy & Pensions
We will further complicate the UK tax system so that everyone can find a loophole, not just multi-national companies.
We will change the English symbol of three lions to three badgers. How often do you see lions running round the countryside?
All food sold in fast food establishments should be clearly marked “may contain traces of real food”
Social Media sites to be taken down annually for a ‘recall how to talk day’
We will only paint yellow lines where you CAN park.
Potholes deeper than three inches will be marked with a yellow plastic duck.
We will rename the current ‘Oyster’ travel cards, to ‘Sardine’ to truly reflect the experience when traveling on public transport.
British Airways will be given an abacus and some post-it notepaper to replace its computer systems.
