It's been going on since lockdown started since March but surprisingly not been talked about much. I need a new laptop as a backup machine and am basically screwed at the moment as there is only rubbish still on sale. Even if you want something more high end like iMac there is about a month waiting between order and delivery on Apple UK's website. Crazy!

Something like this feels like it should be bigger news, with more done to make things better. It's hit the US now so maybe it will.

PC World has plenty.

Re-stocking here as well. Who are you meant to trust?

I agreed with every word Blair and Major said re the Brexit talks. Who are the big thinkers in this government? The brains? Boris's brains are in his trousers and the rest of his cabinet are dismal...Raab, Patel, Gove, Hancock, Williamson. Seriously, it's bloody terrifying that this shower have our future in their hands.

But never mind, at least hunting with dogs is exempt from the rule of six. :shake head:

Not ashamed to admit I am fucking terrified of Brexit whatever happens and can only wish I was more prepared with at least some sort of stockpile, but my living arrangements made it impossible to have one.

I just can't believe it's even happening, still.

Hunting with dogs is illegal, so it's not an issue re the rule of six.

Fox hunting, yes. Grouse shooting using dogs - legal, although you probably know that.

Not just fox hunting, but you probably didn't know that.

fox hunting is the only one that has a total exclusion (and even that isn't total you won't usually be fined if you hunt a fox threatening your livestock and use only one dog)

you can't use more than 2 dogs for the hunting of deer etc

so hunting with dogs isn't illegal, just some variants of it are

the hunting act actually differentiates between competition and recreational, on your own land, or as a trespasser

however I would never say that hare coursing in any form should be legal, but sadly there are loopholes and circumstances that make it very difficult to prosecute under the hunting act, I think they sometimes use the game act or the night poaching act though

I'm not that well versed in it, and sadly my uncle who was the gamekeeper is increasingly marble free

Doesn't stockpiling make the problem worse, leaving more of a shortage?
Especially for those that can't afford to stockpile and live hand to mouth.

People aren't caring about others less fortunate than themselves. This time though, the stockpiling ... We haven't got incoming supply sorted yet (brexit deals) so it wont be like the beginning of the year. Once it's gone, it's gone.

who haven't got incoming supply sorted?

most consumer goods are procured via businesses, the tariff agreements can/will be applied retrospectively, prices may increase but it shouldn't have any immediate impact on supply

that said, we could always try to buy more domestic goods
