And we call toilet roll hoarders! Just read there is a 68% increase in gun sales in some US states
US buy guns, Netherlands have been queuing round the block for weed, we do bog rolls.
Actually toilet paper is being hoarded all over North America too.

Stories of squares of newspaper cut up and threaded on a piece of string to be hung on a a nail in the outside loo as ass-wipes, all seem very chuckle-worthy today. It happened

Might be down to the rumours that supermarkets are cutting back on deliveries of booze to free up space on the trailers for other goods Bruce.

Some of them seemed to be rationing how much of each booze product you could buy...They don't even do that at Christmas!

Anyone that's running short of booze, have a word with your local landlord. Likely he'll have plenty spare he'd like to shift.

It's pretty fecked up.

Hope you're all doing ok.

The sunny side of me likes to think that everyone is working to worst case scenarios and whilst it's still obviously terrible it won't be as bad as we fear.

Got to plan and act for the worst though. Places like this are also going to be v important as people are stuck at home with their thoughts. Let's be good to each other.

Edit: in fact they're pretty much all down as websites at the moment - Asda, Tesco, Sainsbury's, Waitrose, Ocado...

Morrison’s Harwood has closed for refurb for three days. Opens again tomorrow I think. Might be worth going first thing if desperate as presumably they will be stocked...but I’d get there for opening.

Panic buyers, or those who could see what was going to happen a few weeks ago? Not had the need to queue nor take up vital delivery slots from the needy :wink:

Oh dear, oh dear. All this talk of shutting down the UK supercentre of the virus, London and shutting schools. I'd guess the locals in Devon/?Cornwall and a few other places won't welcome tomorrows exodus of people, some of whom they've never seen, down to their holiday homes, going to cause some massive resentment.
