Trading is often about how to take the appropriate risk without exposing yourself to very human flaws.

Another pithy (less than) one-liner that captures the issue in a moment. Fabulous! :-)

The government don't want it. Makes no difference to them, there won't be more fuel sold overall.

It's the media's fault. I can see the editors rubbing their hands as they signed off the "UK running dry" headlines on Thursday knowing full well it would spark chaos and produce even bigger stories to come in the next few days. Wankers.

Getting Brexit done has got consequences .

-Long que at port Dover ( red tape)
- empty supermarket shelves
-farmers counting losses ( unharvested, uncollected, undelivered produce)
- avoid the fishermen at all costs ( collateral damage ) small price to pay for the will of the people.
-big budget black holes at the constituency levels. No more funds and subsidies from EU.
- the square mile and the Canary wharf use to be the bank of Europe , with a financial sector that had Europe in the pocket . Not anymore ( millions lost )
- tax raised, income tax raised , Bank of England interest rates all time low , quantitative easing entry stop the coming recession…….. ETC

oh!
Where is the money for NHS. , remember the adverts how much money we all be saving from eu membership fee?

Latest project fear coming true … is the shortages of delivery on fuel due to lack of logistical planning arising from Brexit.. ( panic buyers are only a reflection of the problem)

And to make Brexit a success we need the very foreign workers we meant to keep away but this time with red tape and extra cost to the consumers.

Great!

On the plus side, you can get £30 per hour to pick cabbages provided you can find the fuel to get to the farm. :)

I think this whole thing was intentionally created by the media/government as part of some agenda like justifying the car/emissions tax per mile idea that coincidentally is just about to be discussed
