Panic buying a shed load of petrol in canisters because of a fuel shortage caused by panic buying sure helps build up flammable material in the suburbs. Will the Fire Service have enough fuel to get to the fires to put them out?
They even tried to impeach him for attempting a 'friendly' coup; what is wrong with the woke brigade? The insurrectionists only wanted to hang Mike Pence because he was upholding woke values like democracy...
The same problem effects UK bands / orchestras touring the EU, as far as I am aware - a band can go on tour, but their van with their equipment cannot do multiple stops. It was an unintended consequence that the Private Eye mentioned a couple of years ago [so brought to the attention of the Westminster Bubble].

In ocelot's world, there seems to be no accounting standards. Makes me wonder why the last annual accounts included these statements:
Statement of Directors' Responsibilities:
'The Directors have prepared the consolidated accounts in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards as adopted by the EU ("adopted IFRS").'
REPORT OF THE INDEPENDENT AUDITOR
' The financial reporting framework that has been applied in their preparation is applicable law and international accounting standards in conformity with the requirements of the Companies Act 2006 and as regards the parent company financial statements, as applied in accordance with the provisions of the Companies Act 2006.'
So, do you believe the directors and auditors or a ramper?
'Voters in the country now face growing shortages of fuel and food, and an increase in living costs, in the wake of Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Brexit project. '
'Despite riding to power on a Brexit campaign that pledged to cut immigration from the European Union, Johnson and his ministers are now considering what would be a significant and politically damaging U-turn: Tapping those same EU workers to plug the labor shortages crippling parts of the U.K. supply chain.'
The Brexit chickens are coming home to roost and the farm is full because there is not enough CO2 to stun them, not enough Vets to run the abattoir, not enough drivers for the trucks, not enough fuel to fill the trucks or enough dry ice to deliver the chicken meat to customers who do not have enough money to buy the produce.
Someone called LBC to tell the story of a friend who is a HGV driver trying to deliver food to a large Tescos; had to turn around and return to base because of the queues of cars waiting to refill with petrol.
