    Certainly so if you read the article it does not mention Brexit once. Oh dear another opportunity to pin the blame where it does not exist.

    Brexit is a key reason for:

    1 shortage of HGV drivers
    2 delays in goods from EU…so fresh produce is not as fresh.
    3 shortage of fruit and veg pickers
    4 shortage of pub and restaurant staff
    5 shortage of nurses, doctors, vets
    6 shortage of meat processors
    7 loss of EU hauliers doing multiple cabotage UK drops

    and it’s clearly mentioned in the article….within the eye catching flow chart.

    For some reason, we aren't at the Front of the Queue.

    Who could have seen that coming?

    I remember being told it would all be so easy. A mere formality.

    What are you complaining about.
    Didn't Boris promise he would create jobs.
    Brexit has now created millions of them and you still aren't happy. :rolleyes:

    I watched this live, and Johnson is so used to telling lies that he is flummoxed when the truth is told to him.
    It's about time the media started challenging I'm on public and Parliamentary lies as Trump was.
    There's a difference between glossing the truth/looking on the bright side and outright lies that are denied by the ONS

    That will be Johnson's epitaph.

    no it isn't. But there is a shortage at some retail outlets, which will shortly get much worse.

    Do you know anybody who has been issued with a Petrol Ration Card?

    How many litres per month are they allocated?

    John, I realise comprehension may not be your strong point, but go back to the article and read it again. If you ever did read it, which would explain your confusion.

    Where does it say anywhere that petrol was rationed to motorists? Please show me where ration cards were mentioned? I'll quote a line from the linked article and see if it helps your confusion.

    "BP has been forced to close some petrol stations and will restrict deliveries of petrol and diesel"

    Please let me know if you still struggle with written English. Perhaps I could arrange a translation into a different language for you if that helps.

    Ask a grownup to tell you what the word "rationed" means.

    It does not mean "shortage."

    perhaps the teacher at your English class can explain.
