    Hope it all dies down by the end of the week, driving 206 miles to see the misses next Monday, helping her pack up and get everything ready for her big move back down south.

    Who carries around a knife, that aren't in some way looking for trouble? Hope he gets done.

    Mind you, thinking of stupid. I saw a bunch of lads being very laddish the other day. Several police 15 meters from them, and the guys must have seen them. They all crossed the road during a red light, and one of the guys got confrontational with a motorist through his window, completely unprovoked. I had such a huge grin when I saw 6 police officers immediately swarm him and have a word.

    I'd love to see how these people behave if a real disaster struck - world wars, earthquakes, hurricanes etc

    They'd be the first to go as they rush to stock pile with all the other lemmings, while all the smart people plan their movements and avoid crowded areas.

    Had day off work getting car fixed, driving to garage in Shirley/Solihull most stations were empty, M&S garage had some and there was a queue, not too long but on the Stratford Road, police should have been managing that imo as its a really busy main road in the area. But to counter that I would say there were fewer cars for that time of rush hour imo, maybe people WFH or saving petrol car pooling?

    I personally feel this is all a very bad reflection on Humanity.

    Sad I am :(

    I wonder how many cars will get a dead battery from queuing in the rain?

    They’d go first because people like me would just wait until they’ve stocked up and then take it all off them. :p

    It’s fine, Boris says supplies are now stabilising. In the meantime Junction 21 M1 services near me are completely out of fuel and all surrounding petrol stations.

    This is why in the movies when there is an apocalypse the government hesitates to tell the public.

    Reminds me, I wonder how Colin Furze is getting on with building his underground tunnels? Might have to start digging my own apocalypse bunker.
