Working from home now remotely,  if you need supplies buy online,  nothing will go out of stock unless they want to it.

but you'd have to wait a few weeks before they get around to you

Thankfully I been buying from riverford organic veggies on a weekly drop so no stress

I can't get a hold of loo roll for love nor money for a week now. I turn up early at the various stores before work, and there's nothing. Do they want us to camp out like people do for a new iPhone? tRoll. 😁 The supply I've got at home is running out. Probably shouldn't have made saag this week... 😅

Do you live alone of something, everyone knows that apnay families buy toilet roll in bulk! We bought ours two weeks ago and have enough for a few months. We bought all the hand sanitiser as well, it was available but rationed to two at Home Bargains a few days ago. A lot of the apnay shops are profiteering like hell. Bhindiyan sabzi which was £ 3 a kilo is now £ 9 a kilo. Stores like Siras and Quality foods are raking in in.

That is so true! These indian/Pak stores are making so much money   the prices have gone ridiculously high. Went to the local Pakistani store with my mum yesterday and the prices have gone up in pounds and people still buying so many things. For the last few days they been closing the shop down hours b4 the actual time because all the stock been selling out.

It's just me and my mum at the moment so that probably explains it. We also have one of those bidet combi toilets (you know the ones with the water spout) which, without getting too graphic, probably helps matters.

I try not to embarrass myself by stuffing my trolley with hoarded items especially when I can "feel" people judging someone for being inconsiderate of other people's desire to get their hands on essential items, lol.

Hmmm... three weeks ago there was a procession of army vehicles that went through the streets after dark. I was coming home from work at the time. They seemed to be carrying what looked like tank turrets which were covered in tarps. There were 5 vehicles. It completely slipped my mind until I saw the above video. Kinda weird how they were moving equipment in February when the panic was virtually non-existent in this country.

I'm guessing the government doesn't want a repeat of the 2011 riots where businesses were looted. I'm not suggesting they'll shoot on people, but it seems they aren't messing around this time.

Apologies for the language above but obviously it's not me.

Never thought it would kick off in my lifetime, but it's happening. Amazing. If this is pushed on the public, I'm not falling for it. I'd rather go to prison than be chipped. A big nope. Not happening.

Weapons, wells, caches then crops. Remember anyone who profitered and cut them off for life. The governments take one step too many?  Hold them accountable at the top.

It's the audacity of it.  There's needs to be a cut-off point when enough is enough, and I think this is it.
