    Time to invest in Andrex!!!
    I use to live close to Farnborough for the first 17 years of my life. Now seeing this makes me think that the population of EG is smarter than the rest of the country who do stupid shit like that.
    Whoa, whoa, whoa!

    Costco trafford Park had plenty of bog roll in. We got Andrex whilst it was on offer to go with the toilet roll we got from farmfoods over 2 years ago.
    Stock was running low but its upto 75 now and stored in a cupboard that must have had a water tank in it before.

    Still don't understand the need for people going mad over toilet roll. Isn't it usually bread and milk these idiots go mad for?

    I recall people trying to fill a wheelie bin (no, really) with petrol during the fuel crisis back in ‘08
    They are the ones that will be fist fighting in the big roll aisle

    I guess people want to be able to wipe their arses in the event of being quarantined at home for weeks on end.

    Not sure why more people don't invest in bidets, even the hand held manual ones like this:

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Portable-Sprayer,Travel-Personal-Hygiene-Handheld/dp/B07LDBNPQ5/

    I bought one a year or so ago, haven't used it yet but will do if necessary.

    Or invest in something like this:

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Attachment-Sprayer-Cleaning-Electric-Warranty/dp/B01FPSKS4E/

    Cold water up the bum will be a bit shocking but there are more sophisticated models (and more expensive and harder to plumb in because they need an electric supply) that provide warm water to the nether regions.

    I'd rather be 'strange' than have a dirty arse.

    Is that your personal stock or what's in your local supermarket? :)

    Most of the Western world - 'bog roll!'. America - 'ammunition!'.

    Nothing cleans the anus like a full metal jacket round.

    For the ultimate protection against foreign germs.

    Thankfully there are no shortages here, hopefully the hysteria won't hit.

    Ah but with ammunition you can take more bog roll and protect your own. It's the American way.

    In other news, Asda are rationing hand wash liquid to 2 per customer. My missus was in there yesterday and some old bastard was trying to buy a whole basket of them.

    Was just in Asda. Not quite completely out, but not far off it!

    (They were completely out of handwash though)

    Was in wilkos yesterday and every single person was buying soap, hands sanitiser, toilet roll and/or paracetamol/ibuprofen. Panic buying always looks stupid when you see it on the internet but seeing it in person at this stage of the issue is something else.

    Wonder how little it would take to end up with people eating people.

    Those look great for cleaning some hard to reach parts of my mountain bike .

    The sobering part is this is a fully functioning supply chain.

    Imagine the scenes with a no deal Brexit.

    Just went to do weekly groceries and see that loo rolls and hand wash are mostly gone. And this is a fairly small Tesco as well. Seriously, Bojo should make himself useful for once, go on national TV and tell the general public don't be twats and stop panic buying. It's just making everything worse. Stupid herd mentality.

    Actually that’s a point I’ve been raising for a while, a big problem in politics is a lack of politicians with the balls to tell the public to stop being stupid.
    The public have had a free ride for far too long.
