    They Are at it Again

    How true this is. They should award the BBC the big wooden spoon for the scaremongers of the year.

    JMO the spurtle should be awarded to the Daily Express.

      Have they forgotten their own headlines from three days ago? !!

      Shoppers were last night urged to buy their Christmas presents early as supply chain chaos intensified.

        Apparently, according to the media, there's a bit of a Baked Beans supply crisis.

        I know where they all are, in my local supermarkets, along with the other foodstuff products in short supply!

          The advantage of getting people to "panic buy now is the supply chain can be better prepared and prioritize what they need to restock in the supermarkets rather than delivering stuff no one wants.

          Down side is the over stocking and discounted mince pies might not happen.


          Reported no fuel a week last Thur, in a few petrol station on a run we did.
          Repeat run this Thur and they have fuel, simple reason the put the price up more than the odd ones that are still running out regularly.

          Going rate round us for Diesel was £1.36 got filled up for £1.37 stations with fuel(no queues) £1.45-£1.48

            Branston(the best)

            Farm food had plenty £2.25 for 6
            3 pack £1 B&M I think is the current cheapest.

            If you have those stores.

                Agree about Branston being best. I like to add a few dashes of Worcestershire sauce and a little hot chilli sauce. Makes them less sweet. We buy ours from Home Bargains.

                  I don't understand the necessity to stock up just in case something might be in short supply.

                  My family have already agreed not to exchange adult gifts this Christmas but just to give presents to the children.

                  If any foodstuffs are in short supply, then we'll eat an alternative, just like they did during the war and in times of rationing.

                  We still have 3/4 tank of petrol from before the panic buying/shortage. When we passed our local petrol garage earlier, there was obviously fuel in the pumps and not a long queue.

                    Listening to the 7:30 am news on BBC Radio2 when they reported the tragic deaths of 5 people in Norway by a person with a Bow & Arrow.

                    The song they played immediately after defies belief..............

                    Poison Arrow by ABC.

                    What are they playing at!

                      Disgraceful, what has it come to when the BBC News is reporting the news..........along with just about every other news channel going.

                      and the express 2 weeks ago

                      As for being 'at it again', I seem to recall it was the Transport Minister that said there was no need to panic

                              Our village Esso filling station........£1.35.9 / litre E10 unleaded
                              £1.41.9 / litre Diesel

                              Inverness though...........................£1.41.9 / litre E10 unleaded
                              £1.42.9 / litre Diesel

                              Supermarkets cheaper but I don't use their fuel. Our village filling station (Esso) fuel is consistently cheaper than Inverness but I suspect when they next refill their E10 unleaded the price will rise - but still cheaper. No price-gouging in our village I'm happy to say.

                              And, with my Fuelpecker Card I save 3p / litre on E10 (4p if you were a diesel user).

                              Heads up for everyone with petrol engined garden tools - the Ethanol in E10 is very corrosive and WILL damage the equipment if not properly maintained (with regard to the fuel).
