    Our resident burner is back with his "everything is fine" bullshit again, I see.

    The media are "making up" stories about petrol stations running out of fuel? So apparently they have roped in the petrol companies too, since they are corroborating this. And they've roped in a bunch of actors to "pretend" to queue up in their cars. And other actors to "pretend" to fight on forecourts. Do you understand how many people would need to be part of this "conspiracy" for it to be true?

    The extent to which the Brexiteers are prepared to lie to defend their stupid project shouldn't surprise us, of couse. It was started with lies, won because of lies, and has been driven through by a man sacked for lying. Twice. Now they are trying to lie their way out of the negative impacts of it.

    Tip for you Brexiteers; we aren't as stupid as you are. Your lies won't work with us.

    And if anyone wants to work through the downsides of Brexit (warning, it will be depressing) we have a chain of 1000 tweets detailing them. And to be honest, that may not be comprehensive:

    https://twitter.com/rdanielkelemen/s...325818886?s=20

    I look forward to dribbles providing his list of 1000 benefits. Though to be honest I'd be happy to just see one. He still hasn't provided any (real) examples.

    I wonder why if it's all due to Covid, then why didn't we ever had empty shelves, except for toilet paper in March 2020, and why I can get fuel at about every street corner?

    If only there was a difference between the Netherlands and the UK....

    Fucking burner is hilarious. The Times is fake news now? And a "lefty rag" to boot?

    It must be great living in a reality all by yourself. Lonely mind you, which might explain why he keeps popping up here to chat with us.

    Thanks for the posts, enjoying them, really is getting to a couple of people on here.
    You and your "getting to them" again, eh? That's projection, in case you were wondering.

    If you and your pet burner want to delude yourself about reality, then feel free. The rest of us will carry on recognising all the negative impacts of Brexit, while you continue to pretend that there are tons of positives, even if you can't actually tell any of us what they are.

    In the meantime, only 18% of the country think Brexit is going well. And we haven't fully left yet. Fewer and fewer people think like you do. How low will that number need to go before you join the ranks of people who's eyes are open? Will you be the last disciple standing?

    Stop crying and moaning as per usual trying to over exaggerate things, granted i have had some issues with petrol stations, empty pumps and closed petrol stations around but i just watched the news, the petrol board of UK says its 1 in 5 petrol stations that don't have fuel and petrol supply at pumps should be back to normal in a week or so.

    As for food, i have seen a couple of things missing from my local Tescos but not the chicken little sky is falling like your trying to make it.

    Stop trying to make it sound like Armaggedon has fallen haha.

    As for the Burner account good on him, its people like you with your constant bulling and general nastiness that drives people away.

    And if you want to provide a bit more veracity for your stories; give us a general postcode for where you live in the UK (just first 3 digits will do). Then we can see if there are any stories for that area about fuel shortages or problems with deliveries. Maybe you genuinely do live in an area that has avoided these problems, somehow. Otherwise we have to assume that you're lying; because your story doesn't match up the reality of our own lives, the reports in the press and on the news, and details coming out across Social Media.

    Either you're a lying ban-evading alt, or all those other sources of information are tainted in the same way. Occams Razor gives us a clue as to which it's likely to be.

    We don't need to discredit your opinions, they do that on their own. As do you, with the way you react when your opinions are held up to the light. We can't force you to accept reality, but we can laugh at you when you don't.

    People are not lying they are just are not trying to make it out like it's Beruit in the 1970's like you are.

    Everything is extreme with you, it's like you are constantly trying to paint a total negative no matter even if there is a slight positive. Your take on things is always skewed to see the cup half empty.

    I lived in Africa, in Zimbabwe for 10 years of my life, i know what unrest is, no food, no fuel etc etc, the picture your trying to paint all the time of the UK falling in to complete ruin is utter bullshit.

    You would be better of having a look at yourself and your reasoning, and stop being overall pessimistic at every turn.

    Well shit, I can already see inflationary pressures that are going to make the next 12 months difficult for me, because my salary is not even close to keeping up with that. Thankfully I don't drive, but I do find it both hilarious and concerning that petrol has increased in price so much, and yet the station around the corner is enforcing a £35 limit on transactions when they do have anything in - £35 which will buy you vanishingly less fuel every day.

    "It's not as bad as Zimbabwe" is not a fucking achievement for what's meant to be a first world democracy.

    No but according to some people on this forum is worse, far far worse and that is the point i am making.

    Funny that! All I see is people saying everything is fine when it quite clearly isn't! ...then comparing the UK to a country ruined by fucking Robert Mugabe!

    Good job in reducing what little credibility you had in this thread to zero, but do keep going it isn't exactly hard to debunk this nonsense!

    you're being ridiculous, but that is the par for people like you on this forum.

    Credibility, Stuff you and the horse you rode in, why would i want to be seen as credible in your eyes, you people, "Extreme left nutta's " are the worst of what this forum has to offer.

    I mean, it is a pain in the arse that I have to shop around and shop more frequently to get what I need.

    It’s a pain in the arse that it costs more and takes more time others may not have in doing so.

    It’s a pain in the arse that part of the reason I bought a second bike was because I couldn’t reliably get hold of spares for my road bike.

    It’s a pain in the arse I’m going to have to pay more NI and more Council Tax.

    It’s a pain in the arse that my gas will cost more from December.

    If I paid for petrol it’d be another pain in the arse.

    There are probably more pains to come, as well the government warn me.

    This is death by a thousand cuts stuff. You can’t isolate individual issues and say it’s “not that bad” to deny others’ experience. I’m glad I don’t have kids or rely on universal income, because that would only make things much worse.

    No, nobody on this forum is suggesting that it's worse. That's you arguing in bad faith, as usual.

    We're pointing out that petrol is in short supply. That goods aren't getting to the supermarkets reducing availability and choice. You've then chosen to exaggerate that so that you can then pretend that we're all overreacting.

    Once again, you are lying and posting in bad faith. Which is pretty much all you can do. I'd suggest we argue on the facts of the matter, and I'd be delighted to do so, but you won't do that. You'll throw your toys out of the pram again, claim we're attacking you and storm off vowing to "never come back again". Again.

    You and the burner are two peas in a pod; I can understand why someone would think you were the same person. But sharing a delusion doesn't make you any more right than if it was one that was uniquely your own.

    So feel free to debate the facts, if you can. But if you need to put words in the mouths of your opponents to do that, it's pretty clear you can't. Logical debate is unarmed combat for you.
