Its getting to be like wartime Britain over here. Shortages in the shops and the army stepping in to ensure vital supplies. A direct result of right wing madness.

Here is a map of Europe showing all the countries that are facing food shortages. The countries affected are coloured in green.

It would be a cardinal sin for the current generation of Brits to even attempt to compare themselves with their parents and grandparents who fought on alone through The Blitz all those years.

It's not even the same DNA.
Its easy to laugh but Mrs T had to go to 3 different stores yesterday to get what we needed. Its pretty much intolerable.

Yes but they all have a Z in their name and have gone back to Poland following our glorious Brexit.

There is now a huge shortage of drivers which is made worse by the covid thing. The drivers have seen their opportunity and are planning a strike over pay and conditions. Army on standby. I think they call it taking back control.

Hopefully the Red Cross will step in with some food parcels.

It’s due mainly to the pingdemic.

Now the Brits have to be more than just a money launderer for the E.U and actually develop an economy?

If the Japanese could drastically change their economy and the U.S can remain diverse, even as they lose so many manufacturing jobs (which is a mistake when they are going to enemies), why can't the English?

All you remind us is that Western nations continue to lose their innovation and manufacturing. There is no British person who can drive a bus or truck?

Come on maaaan...

Britain isn’t really out of Europe. Only the EU.

There used to be the Common Market. It should have stayed like that.

Before Brussels started poking its nose. Dictating the shape of cucumbers, and back stairs on London buses.

Just more of the same BS that's been happening for over a year now: China said "Boo" and the world crapped in it's pants and hurt itself while over-reacting.

Its brexit.
The government has given truck drivers exemptions if they test regularly. Meanwhile, the ethnic cleansing of European drivers has left us 100k short of truck drivers.

In other brexit news Ireland is in meltdown and the UK is reneging on a treaty it signed a few months ago.
