Well at least thats one less on the lookout for loo rolls if he has got enough for a year

 

Would probably be cheaper to adapt a toilet with a bidet attachment  for around £50

they need to introduce strict rationing - I understand many shops have tried and people bully the staff into letting them take what they want. So that means we need to get stricter? Use the army who could take a much firmer hand with these people? I've no idea what else can work at this point. Clearly people are not going to stop until we make examples of some people to deter the rest!

I agree.  Maybe now the pubs and clubs have to close, their door staff can help ensure rationing is upheld?

How are the food manufactures going to keep up with this demand, surely they will run out of supplies soon, then us that haven't stockpiled will starve.

Please Padders don't  cause anymore  panic.

I've discovered the answer to the loo roll drought.  😄 There is a direct correlation  between the amount of toilet paper you get through, and the amount of food you eat. GO ON A DIET. Take this opportunity to leave food on shelves for everyone else!  Remember old folk don't have large freezers, and they often shop fresh daily so they can actually speak to a human being. They are not well prepared in a practical sense for self-isolation.  They haven't got the storage capacity in their small fridge frreezers. They need food daily.  Be kind  and not selfish. Take people to task when you see them overbuying. Shame them publicly as I do.

Paracetamol may get rationed before long, if people are currently panic-buying it.

 

By now it is rationed most elsewhere on the Continent (France, Spain and Italy for sure, today I've heard Belgium may be too).

 

There's plenty of manufacturing capacity, but the problem is leadtime and reduced distribution capacity (and extended delivery times, lots of ad hoc checkpoints on roads, m'ways and borders), once the stocks already in the retail/distribution channels begin to run dry.

 

If people stayed sensible, really there'd be no need for rationing anything, officially or through public shaming.

Spot on as per usual.
