Luckily, we had half a tank of petrol when the petrol strike hit. But since I keep being told that it is all in the imagination, there is no shortage of petrol, it’s just a typical complaint of Remainers upset about not being able to buy avocados and about the slaughter of pigs, who the Prime Minster assures us would have died anyway – this I assume was his COVID policy as well – we ventured out. None of the garages in East London had a drop of normal fuel. Plenty of diesel, of course. So, that’s our last expedition for a bit. Then I remembered that the Prime Minister is on holiday in Marbella after complaining that the British people are pathologically lazy.
It is a mystery to me that his poll ratings hold up.
