    What's a double joke is people like you who think mask wearing and all the other measures of corona is make-believe.
    Extending the period where people like your friend won't get help because it's not an emergency.

    He can't afford 3-4 physio sessions? Or is it because he's paid tax that you think he deserves it for free? By the way, car insurance covers whiplash injuries. Perhaps he should've claimed.

    I visited a supermarket worker on Saturday and she says there has been a sharp uptake in buying since there were rumours of another lockdown. Not quite panic buying but a murmur.

    Yep! Delivery slots/collections are getting fewer and further between too. I noticed yesterday that the tesco slots are now just an hour window to collect, rather than 2, I guess to try and meet demand.

    oh, in that case, I better hire a van and go shopping!

    I've still got tins of soup from the previous bulk buy! And lots of tins of tomatoes - not needed any since I grew loads of my own!
    A winter panic will be a lot tougher though.

    It’s a funny old world. The differences of opinion on here are amazing but it’s just not worth throwing insults back & forth like a Corbyn supporter. All it will do is crystallise there opinion.
    I just don’t want to be responsible for killing someone by acting irresponsibly.
    Maybe some people aren’t bothered about that.

    During the first lockdown, it was hard to find delivery slots from Asda.

    At the moment I can choose any day up till the 4th Oct, and virtually any time of day.

    Yes our click and collect slots have dropped to 1 hour

    Im not sure there will the same panic buying if there is a lockdown, everybody now knows the shortages were just demand side.

    A bigger worry is the end of transition where shortages will be supply side.

    The "world beating" Smart Freight System wont be up and running until at least April 2021
    4 months without a freight handling system, the time of year we rely most on food imports.

    I must admit Im buying a little extra each week -just a bag of pasta or similar, not a lot, just a bit of a buffer

    my plasterer said similar - I think his supplier actually contacted him to ask if he wanted some when their shipment came in.

    Maybe the fact that someone has more recently said the opposite is not really an answer.
