When something totally unnecessary happens like this it’s often worth taking a closer look at what the government is up to as, historically, these situations have often been instigated almost as a sleight of hand….manufacture a fuel shortage that becomes primary headline with one hand and sneak something under the radar with the other hand.

Seems like everything is back to normal. Gas stations open, no ques.
Nothings changed apart from the fact that the media have done, had their fun fucking with the sheeple.

What I can see is inflation taking off. The MD of Iceland (the shop, not the chilly island) said this morning that his energy costs had gone up by £20M and said some of this cost would have to be passed on to the consumer. As prices rise, people will start to buy non-perishable stuff in bulk like they did in the '70s. Hunker down. Siege mentality. What might be a good buy is a portable generator. When we all have to rely on electrickery for everything there are going to be overloads on the grid.

Not normal down here in sunny Kent, lots of shut garages, and when open, huge queues, even had the Army delivering, but made little difference

My 95 year old Mum just said to me "Shall we get some extra tins in before food runs out?"..... :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO: which jogged my memory....
In 2006 I "knew of" some pretty undesirable people, I "heard" they specialised in nicking loaded artics for the goods...blah blah blah....one truck when opened up was full to the roof with boxes full of Govt Petrol and Food rationing vouchers dated for 2013 for the UK...., things that make you go hmm...

I know some were panic buying but, more than half the pumps at my two local garages were out of use because they were low on fuel. If everyone is filling as normal but only half the pumps are available there will be a queue .

Not completely back as it was before the BBC started their scaremongering - they've also gifted us fuel price inflation, all up another couple of pence a litre thanks to those asswipes.

Saw a few folks walking home with bonkers amounts of bog rolls yesterday.
Guess what the pricks on tv had said.
I despair at how we think we're so ckever and woke advanced but so fucking stupid at the same time. Lol

This last 2 years has been nothing more than a World "test", they have pulled it off and it will now be activated whenever they want.......a Revolution will be the only way to sort it.
