Panic Buying is here again


Recommended Posts

Not only was my supermarket unusually busy today but, as with the last time, it becomes a self-fulfilling prophesy as soon as the media run a story on it.

And here it is.  Lead story in the Sun.

 

FEAR WE GO!

Panic-buyers hit the supermarkets to stockpile food amid No Deal Brexit fears

 

PANIC buyers have hit the supermarkets to stockpile food amid fears of a No Deal Brexit.

The UK and the EU today vowed to continue negotiations - but some nervous shoppers were seen leaving Costco with huge hauls of loo roll, beer and baguettes.

And mentioned within the headline of the lead story in The Mail.

Boris Johnson says the UK will 'go the extra mile' in EU Brexit talks as he steps back from the brink of No Deal but warns they could still fail because the two sides 'are still very far apart on some key things' - as supermarkets prepare for panic-buying

That is the genie out of the bottle.  Panic buying it is.

I may have appeared to be panic buying today as there was a £10 off when you spend £40 token at Lidl and as I really struggle to get to £40 (no booze allowed in that total) that meant a huge pack of toilet rolls, several pots of high strength vitamin D, lots of tinned stiff and tea and coffee so I probably looked like I was panic buying.

Well over another mile - more like a mad dog running around in circles.

As long as he scares the French it's job done.

Middle aisle and booze aisle. Although vouchers not normally work on booze.

Specifically no booze and nothing I wanted in the middle aisle.

The link below was it though the Thursday, Friday and Saturday issues that had the voucher.  I only bought one as there was no way I was going to be able to spend £80.

I did mention it on the lottery thread on Friday and thought people might see it there.

Once (if) travel opens up again, may I suggest you take a trip to Uruguay? They always talk about selling ice to Eskimos but perhaps you can offload some of your remaining pies in the capital of Rio Negro?

I disagree.

There are two huge positives:

Regaining sovereignty: the ability to set laws and economic policy that specifically suit the UK.

Breaking free from the imploding mess that is the EU before we get dragged down into chaos with it.

preaching to the converted. Voted to Leave five long years ago with all my heart, all my soul, all my strength and all my mind, I'm just not as positive as you are at this point that we got what we voted for.

You're right, we are creating plenty of homegrown chaos on our own, best we stick with what we know rather than that filthy continental chaos.
