Fishmongers are even rarer nowadays! The only one I knew of in Leeds was one that opened in Chapel Allerton. Might be some in the city centre, but I rarely venture there.

Got enough food in to last about six months.

Mostly dried/tinned.

Would not look forward to doing so however.

I live in a very small commuter market town. We have 3 permanent butchers, one greengrocer and two permanent fishmongers, plus a town market three times a week... and a waitrose that isn't short of any meat.

I have a sofa with a massive storage compartment. Completely forgot about the tinned soup and stuff I'd put in there last year. :lol:

Had a tin of chicken noodle soup - was much nicer than I thought it would be.

Indeed. Carefully calculated.

The problems in NI are because the EU is a cvnt.

Sounds like Berkhamsted. You are lucky.. butchers and fishmongers seem to be vanishing in most places... though we have two butchers in my town. No fishmongers. Tesco, Sainsburys, Morrisons, Aldi and Lidl.. alas no Waitrose...

The only supermarkets having problems in NI are the ones from GB : Sainsburys, M&S, Asda .

The ones from the EU are fully stocked: Dunnes, Supervalu, Aldi and Lidl.

The nordies can still export to both markets without restrictions.

France like EVERY OTHER COUNTRY on the planet is seeing a shortage in building materials, microchips for cars and apparently sh*t plastic toys from China. That's it!

No food, CO2, energy or driver shortages.

There's plenty of fvcking food. The 'CO2 crisis' is absolute bollocks started by NHS unions and leapt upon by the meeja. And driver shortages? WTF? where has that come from apart from the united road transport union?

On 24 August, Transport Intelligence published a research paper on European driver shortages, which assesses the scale of the ongoing structural issues restricting the supply of drivers across Europe, with a total shortfall of drivers now surpassing 400,000. The most heavily impacted European countries are Poland (shortage of around 124,000 drivers), the UK (76,000 drivers) and Germany (45,000-60,000 drivers)
But Brexit.

No food, CO2, energy or driver shortages over here.

And iof there are shortages they are not signficant enough to be even mildly noticable.

Strange that no media in Europe has reported empty shelves, or businesses saying they are days away from having no stock/part/products.

It was an article in French, from a French source describing what shortages should be expected in France in September 21. No need to get so angry.

But Brexit.
As I said before the whole "Everybody else is in the same boat as us" thing is just complete horseshît.

No food, CO2, energy or driver shortages over here.

And iof there are shortages they are not signficant enough to be even mildly noticable.

You post one link and the French go mental. :lol:
I tell you what, whatever you do DO NOT hold up the mirror.....

Coz if you do you'll get very, very angry.

My advice is just keep believing the weapons grade BS your govt is feeding you, it's much simpler that way.
DAC can hold up that mirror if he likes.

It was an article in French, from a French source describing what shortages should be expected in France in September 21. No need to get so angry.
No anger here dude, just some advice to the ill informed.
You wrote in capitals FFS. :lol: Why am I ill informed for posting a French article?

We should let go of the fish really. At least you'll have something to eat if you can actually catch it.

Sad times.

The Brits mainly eat cod and haddock. The fish caught off the south coast is intended for export mainly.

You could post a similar article from literally almost every other country on the planet as these products (building materials, microchips for car makers and plastic toys) are unavailable worldwide.

Therefore this has nothing to do with food, CO2, energy and driver shortages that are specific to GB.

If you can't tell the difference then there's no point in discussing this further.

I've literally just posted a link that shows driver shortages aren't specific to GB. NO MIRROR FOR YOU, GARCON. :lol:

You have to laugh at the French, pretending everything is tickety-boo in France and it's just the UK having issues.
