    I got up at 5:30 this morning to get the milk in from the doorstep, just in case some Humphrey came and took it.

    My local pub has just dropped the last of their bottled lager on my doorstep - very kind of them. It's a tequila beer I've never tried before, but better than the nothing I managed from the supermarket.
    It would be good if pubs started doing beer deliverys. Or even started stocking crates of bottles/cans that people could pick up.

    Then supermarkets could concentrate on food.
    Wouldnít really help because it then ties up delivery drivers with lots of small deliveries to pubs and then to customers.

    I got an email from my Swiss Irn-Bru Xtra supplier earlier saying that their suppliers were all stopping working so they could only supply what they have in stock.
    I bought 48 cans as it may be many, many months before they're available again, they go in and out of stock. I haven't bought any differently at all apart from this, it's a niche product here that probs no-one would even notice but I feel a bit guilty....

    We may get a lot of random acts of thieving unless they start to think about what they call "people with hectic lifestyles" in the media, no help to them so far and as much as people hate the scummy cunts there is a lot of good but desperate people having hard times right now in that group.

    Hereís one from left field.

    Save an egg box.

    Although thereís absolutely no problem with egg supply- thereís the millions of eggs that MacDonalds would have used available- there is a problem with the supply of egg boxes. The main supplier, a Dutch company, has shut down for two weeks to protect its workers, which is causing a few problems packaging the MacDonaldís eggs.
    Taking your own box back to the supermarket and having a new barcode sticker put on the box is one possible solution thatís being pondered.

    Pretty much a full delivery yesterday, bar a few things that fell off. Butter and lactose free milk being the biggies. Oh, and no bog roll. Seemed much more expensive than usual though, and I suspect that's because a) I bought a bit more booze than normal b) had to buy more branded stuff than I would normally and c) definitely less offers presumably to discourage people from going in.

    My mate has his Tesco deliver cancelled with no warning last night so, naturally, the wife was up all night freaking out.

    Yeah, same here. Got to be some good that comes out of this, perhaps it'll make us less reliable on supermarkets. Hmm

    I've been going to the local grocer in town. At the weekend he was stocked full of fresh goods.

    This should hopefully be a big benefit of scary times.
    To supplement the Brexit Stockpile we have been going to a farm delivery for fruit and veg for nearly a year.
    Initially this was mainly part of a push to get away from plastic wrapped veg but it has now meant a relatively secure supply of fresh food not reliant on supermarkets.
    I grumbled it was expensive but actually the resultant drop in the Aldi weekly shop pretty much covered it.
    Milk delivery from a farm is another good one.
    The problem for those looking to get in to this now is demand is through the roof - we got an email saying they would continue to serve us but couldnít take new custom...

    And photographers trying to desperately capture moody photos of empty streets. Which aren't very empty because there are thousands of them

    This is a bit concerning: the supermarket closest to me is still very frequently/consistently out of certain goods (TP being one) after, hmm, 3 weeks or so of lockdown here in Belgium.

    Thing is: the place is not easily accessible by car - i.e. serious hoarders have difficulty getting there - and they've introduced a policy over a week ago whereby shoppers are only entitled to one (relatively small) basket per person. At the same time the supermarket is part of the chain that allegedly has the best supply in the country at the moment.

    I can only imagine a huge horde queuing up before opening time every day. If so, that'd really help prevent the virus spread. /sarcasm off

    I just wonder if after this is all over, will we actually learn anything. Has this changed things forever? I seriously doubt it. People have short memories and I'm sure maximum cuntage will resume as normal.

    If anything, next kind of threat will see people start stockpiling quicker.

    It will only change if we make it change.

    Make political parties of all colours understand that the NHS isn't a political football, it's a nationally important asset that is above party politics.

    Ditto the BBC
