    Parks and streets are rammed up here. Supermarkets are too, I check Google to see how busy they are otherwise you get stuck in infinite queues. Cba with this lockdown anymore, if they reopen pubs i'd probably be camping outside overnight.

    I went with my son to a giant Tesco's on the North Circ yesterday. There was a queue of sorts, but not much of one, and inside it was absolutely rammo. Then he wanted to go to B&Q, which surprisingly enough was open, but they were only letting two or three inside at a time, despite it being a massive store, so **** waiting outside in the snow for that. Whole thing's weird.

    Starting to look that way.

    On the other hand, didn't Boris say the other day that it was far too early to even think about easing restrictions? Which on all known form, means he'll open everything up on Wednesday.

    Drug dealers and off licences will be among the winners from the current unpleasantness, certainly.

    Plenty of Tory MPs are not happy about lockdown, so who knows. No point in trying to predict what these ****s will do, as you said it's normally the opposite of what they claim.

    Pretty decent advice if you are a big business. Having an EU base gets over a lot of the problem. If you are a small to medium business however the costs associated with having a base and an agent abroad will be horrendous. You are probably also going to need warehousing over there which isn't going to be cheap either. Was this the aim of Brexit? I can see a lot of unemployment heading our way.

    And that's a win? Working on an assembly line for Japs. Oh well I suppose it's a step up from building the Burma Railway. Bridge over the River Wear?

    What ****ing planet are you on for ****s sake <laugh>

    People have been losing their jobs left, right and centre due to the fake pandemic.

    Oh my Derpy Days.

    So your answer then is that losing a few more won't hurt? I name you Sir Derpwell Derp, fourth Baronet of Derpington Hall.

    Things aren't looking good for Triumph and Vauxhall since Brexit our automobile industry may be hit hard.

    Hat factories in Luton are closing down too , Brexit again no doubt

    Correct. Vauxhall at Ellesmere Port will shut when the current Astra ends production.
