Tell a lie, make it a whopper
Keep repeating the lie over and over until people begin to believe it is the truth. Supermarkets up here are limiting the number of items you can buy per trip to 3 of anything, this to give them a chance to restock. There is enough stocks in the warehouses and distribution centres to restock most of the supermarket shelves.
Also, once this is all over, we will remember that it was the Tories who screwed up our lives and, unless by some miracle they produce many rabbits out of their hats, this will be reflected at the next General Election. The only voice of reason since the crisis began was that of Jeremy Corbyn, vilified by the Tory Government ahead of the last election, the lies were picked up by the MSM and some members of his own party gave credence to the lies so he was an unelectable force in the eyes of the masses.
Before campaigning began it looked as though there would be a major upset with Labour winning the bulk of the country and having a much improved majority over 1997, alas it was not to be and the only big difference was the number of Labour Politicians who called him out as something he isn’t – racist.
On a slightly lighter note, when we are being told to remain at home and stay indoors the weather takes a turn for the better and some stupid people start congregating on beaches and in parks making it necessary for the police to advise them to keep their distance or be arrested for mass gathering. Some people are just so selfish it is unreal and the latest news from the UK is that a 19 year old with NO health problems has been the latest victim (yesterday but now there are a lot more deaths) to covid-19. When will people realise that going out and gathering in groups is inviting trouble. If they were aware that there was a serial killer on the loose but no one had been able to give a description so it could be anyone, would people still go out or remain indoors then?
People who have stockpiled from the supermarkets have been the wealthy and those with savings, not those of us who live pay day to pay day, yet it is those of us living pay day to pay day who have had to suffer the shortages when our pay day rolls around again. It’s just not the thing any normal human being will do, only the truly selfish and narcissistic among us would do. There are reports from the bin men that they are seeing a lot of food waste from certain quarters, items that were bought have since passed their best before date and thrown out untouched. Obviously people were stockpiling and couldn’t eat everything before becoming worried it had gone off. Makes you wonder why people buy in bulk things that have a very short life span? What is their mental status?
If we only bought what we needed then the false shortages would never have happened and supermarkets wouldn’t have had to introduce rationing in order to keep stock on the shelves. That is the end of the rant caused by self imposed exile and imprisonment to keep myself safe.
