    Really. ??????

    If these idiots in charge manage to do this, I predict a total disaster, in every respect.

    Unfortunately, I predict the public at large will start freaking out and buy everything they can lay hands on in the last couple of weeks, thereby creating shortages, which is why I've taken precautions in well advance, so at least I'm not contributing to any mad rush.

    I always keep a large stock of everything in any case, comes from my 'be prepared' slightly survivalist attitude. What I've done basically is double my stocks.

    If it turns out there's no mad panic at the shops, no harm has been done, I can just use the extra up in due course.

    Fuel shortages won't bother me immediately. I'll just haul the scooter from the garage and use that, it does 150mpg.

    The media will fuel the panic buying.

    The media will focus on any issue that's negative AND BLOW IT OUT OF ALL PROPORTION.

    Because that's what the British media does.

    In fact if it wasn't for the British media who has fed us nothing but Brexit for the last 3 years we probably would have left long ago.

    They absolutely will make a crisis out of a little drama. Being pathetic is their job.

Yes, there might be a few shortages but only due to the aforementioned muppets stockpiling stuff unnecessarily.

    Actually, mid October onwards is a nice time of year to be in Portugal. I could pop over there for a couple of months whilst everybody else sorts out the probable choas.

    If it wasn't for the British media, there would never have been a Brexit referendum in the first place. Nigel Farage, Boris Johnson and Rees-Mogg would have remained on the margins of politics, and we wouldn't be facing the possible break-up of the UK.

    If any blame should be directed at anyone, it should be at David Cameron and his self serving Tory cronies , who decided that have a referendum would best serve their interests.

    In the end, they are responsible for the farce we are seeing now.
