And people wonder why the Conservatives will remain in power for the foreseeable future?

There are just so many bad stories about Boris Johnson and his incompetent govt that it starts to wash over people - like becoming insensitive to seeing constant famine stories in the '80s. It works very much to their advantage.

Edit: actually calling them incompetent plays into their hands somewhat too. In many cases they know exactly what they are doing e.g. vote rigging, gas-lighting, destroying apparatus of scrutiny and account, etc.

It also turns out there was (still is) a genuine shortage of fuel at filling stations before the panic buying:

NEW: data released today by BEIS show fuel stocks at petrol stations across the UK were running at the lowest level for at least three years days BEFORE the news stories which sparked the “panic at the pumps”.

It's the Trump technique.

David Wells, Chief exec of Logistics Uk (FTA) has called Johnson out on blaming the haulage industry for current shortages of almost everything

Quote:
“To suggest that the current issues being experienced in the supply chain are the fault of the very industry which has kept the country supplied with everything it needs throughout the pandemic is, quite frankly wrong,” Wells said.

“The government is well aware that that there are two recent shocks to the system which have created the current problems: 19,000 HGV drivers leaving the UK because of COVID and Brexit and the DVSA’s decision to stop the testing of 45,000 new HGV drivers during the pandemic. Rather than trying to shift the blame for the current situation onto industry, we need government to redouble its efforts to provide assistance in those areas it can control.

And yet there are also plenty of drivers and ex-drivers calling out employers for poor wages and working conditions.

As with everything, this is a combination of issues as we now know there was a shortage of drivers prior to the pandemic and Brexit...
