Really p*ssing me off to be honest. I’m of the school of everyone just buying what they need, and as a result I’ve become the c*nt who can’t get what I need! Had to go to three shops to find nappies and baby wipes on Monday. Two shops to get milk. Haven’t seen a toilet roll on a shelf all week. Couldn’t even get butter today. Facking butter!

Yep, I am the same, went into 4 separate supermarkets, Sainsburys, Tesco, Aldi and Morrisons, and none of them had any bog roll or pasta, and I went both in the evening and morning. I went to Aldi in an evening and the shelves had been stripped bare of meat, bread, pasta, milk, bog roll and hand washing products, and plenty of other items were rapidly running out. There is no need to panic buy, the people doing it are idiots and making others suffer.

It’s all very amicable at the moment.

“Would you like some kitchen roll or tissues instead of toilet paper?”

“Maybe you could just wash yourself afterwards”

Wait til the fuel shortages start and the food lorries stop running. That’s when it gets really nasty.

The fine upstanding residents of the UK have spent £1,000,000,000 more on groceries in the last three weeks than normal.

People are so facking stupid when faced with a crisis. They are for the most part massive liabilities.

The human race isn’t intelligent.

Some are.

The majority are facking morons. Dangerous morons.

I live opposite a big Sainsburys in Knaphill Woking.

The lines were small at opening time this morning and food was plenty.

I got fresh fruit and veggies and meat.

I’m not bulk buying because I live so close.

I got a few frozen bits but spent about 40 quid including charcoal as bbq’d this evening.

They also a policy of buying no more than 3 of one thing.

I just wish folk would be sensible.

I also got 18 cans of fosters which I’m consuming right now

I was ok this morning, got to the shop just as they had got a delivery. I got bog roll, tinned tomatoes, pasta, baked beans, paracetamol, everything, the trolley was full to bursting.

Felt a bit guilty in the check-out queue when an old lady behind me had only a box of tissues and a packet of peanuts in her trolley. So I did the right thing and said, go in front of me love, you've only got two items.

The only thing boris is slow at is locking down London, should have happened a week ago, it's the source of this issue in the UK

Should make some foods accessible via very narrow doors that if you're slim enough you'll fit through. Those that can't fit to get at the food probably need to ration what they eat anyway.

It should slow over the next fortnight.

Also, if it means a majority of people do now stay in their homes, then it was well worth me not being able to find any eggs or hand wash.

You clowns should worry more about whether the trucks are still crossing Dover courtesy of Boris & the EU.
When they stop you can give up on rushing out to Tesco's.... shelves will then be bare!

After a week of basically Martial Law in Spain, just thought I'd post my perspective from here on Mallorca, where our lockdown is far more severe - there's no food shortages.

Social distancing standards are immaculate, though. A fifteen minute queue outside our local Lidl - only eight people in the queue - one out, one in. Everyone at leat 2m apart.

A second security guard then directs you to a table with hand sanitisers and wipes, and issues obligatory gloves. A third then disinfects your trolley.

Only 40 people allowed inside at any one time. Plenty of food in all sections.

The social breakdown in the UK is not down to lack of food. It is down to lack of sensible social distancing rules, and a belief that supplies are short.

Mind you, a few hundred lined up outside the Trafford Centre in the freezing rain is going to cause even more health problems. At least I can top up the tan while i wait to get my €1.20 vino fix.

If not, only allow one small trolley and stop people returning again the same day.

I said that a while back, ridiculous it hasn't happened. I don't care how a big a family is, they will just have to cut back.

Nonsense. So I have 3 kids at home by myself for x amount of time whilst my wife is on the front line working long and unknown hours. I have to go out every day to get the minimum to feed my family at a time when we're being told to avoid being out as much as possible. It I get sick then my wife cannot do her job and the NHS is down a key worker. Shops need to do more to ensure that people dont take the p15 5.

I get your wife may be on the frontline, and that is to be commended. But it was the same during the war, when a lot of families were very large, especially the poorer families. But they were strictly rationed, and had to make do.

Just having a big family is not an excuse for stripping the shelves of everything. You have to cut down, as we all do, to make sure everything is shared equally.
