Fuel shortage


Recommended Posts

  • Gold FFM

Was out and about last night. Passed 5 petrol stations in Dundee and no queues or issues. The petrol station who allowed that guy to fill up that container (if it is real) should be heavily fined as that breaks all the rules and if that trailer was in an accident I hate to think of the consequences and I hope he does not leave it parked in full sunlight for too long.

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

Surely can't be real. Maybe someone new on the tills mis-read the rules 2 500litre containers - not getting the (decimal) point.

It’s weird isn’t it? 99% of the time Joe Public doesn’t take a blind bit of notice of news stories and political debate, but the moment someone mentions “shortages”, they immediately become mobilised and head off to the corresponding retailer to queue up for hours and panic buy. Like the above post states, NOTHING has changed from last week. Brexit was completed 9 months ago. What’s all this bollocks the other day about only having 10 days to “save Christmas” due to HGV driver shortages? Another excuse to panic buy in advance? Frozen turkey this year then!

How ironic is this:-

The hgv driving school by me has been doing lessons on a Sunday to help clear the backlog,today the two being taught spent 2 hours queuing for diesel and then they had run out. They returned to the yard.

hindsight: the science that is never wrong

To be fair, it was government minister Paul Scully that told people not to panic buy on Thursday. As soon as he sad that it was obvious that that is exactly what people would be doing.

p.s. I haven't. I have 3/4 of a tank full in the Volvo which should last me 2 or 3 weeks

On the bbc they will blame it all on brexit. Doesn’t matter similar issues are being experienced all over the world presently it still must be brexits fault.

The shitrag Sun was suggesting we will have a national shortage of Christmas trees 😱 - about time folks stopped funding media.

Starting in about 4 weeks time, 5 nights each week for the following 8 weeks or so, I'll be trucking a trailer-load of trees (freshly cut in the Scottish Highlands) down to our satellite depot in Stoke-on-Trent for onward shipment to various locations 'darn sarth' - I'll let you know where if you want to beat the queues? :P

The latest rumour is a shortage of toys at Christmas.

They'll be a shortage of houses if more people follow this madness:
