    When you are booming, thanks to Brexit, from unprecedented demand thanks to the power of the British consumer it can take a little while for global supply chains to catch up with that demand. Obviously a stagnant economy will not have the same problems.

    Must be frustrating that as soon as remainers find the tiniest thing they think they can pin on Brexit, with a little in depth analysis it turns out to be a Brexit benefit!
    And yet again, Dribbles tells another untruth, and just sees unicorns. Maybe mmo-champion isnt for you, but 4chan would be up your alley.

    The clownery in this thread tripled since I last looked!

    Yeah, not really much to be had from certain posters, unless you're bored at the weekend. I'm just gonna drop this updated link again and let them flail.

    I thought this video was fairly relevant to all the recent accusations of lying and dishonesty: https://twitter.com/PeterStefanovi2/...91973764001792. Not too long ago that level of dishonesty would have forced the PM to resign (or be removed).

    Yeah, but Boris is a bumbling oaf that people find funny and lovable, somehow. So he gets a free pass on being a massive lying piece of shit.

    Just watching his recent speech in Manchester shows what a fucking buffoon he is. And we're apparently perfectly OK with him running the whole country.

    Would help if you actually took a harsher stance on permanent bans and go for their hardware. That one guy has made hundreds of accounts, and you guys apparently can't stop him from making more.

    As stated, above my non-existent paygrade in this case. And this specific suggestion was answered by admins many times, as it essentially has its own easy workaround as they explained it. I personally don't know if there is much that can be done w/ the dino code as is.

    Brexit the gift that keeps on giving

    Tesco products will disappear from Finland because of Brexit

    Tesco products are set to disappear from a grocery chain in Finland because of Brexit, with French retailer Carrefour set to fill the gap left by the British retailer.

    Finnish chain S-Group said Tesco not only cancelled its agreement with them because of UK’s exit from the EU, but will do so “globally”, according to journalist David Mac Dougall.

    Mac Dougall said: “Tesco products will soon disappear from the shelves of the S-Group grocery chain in Finland due to Brexit.

    “For a good number of years they’ve stocked hundreds of products which was hailed as a big deal, and championed repeatedly by the embassy. Now, the realities are laid bare.

    “Finland is a robust market for free-from products and this was where Tesco made their mark. Tesco has been very visible on the shelves but thanks to Brexit that deal is over.”

    He added: “And what’s the Brexit dividend here? S-Group has already turned to French retailer Carrefour to fill the gap left by Tesco.

    “Let’s be very clear, for UK-Finland trade this was a real flagship deal due to how visible Tesco products have been (not necessarily due to the money value of the deal).

    Let's not forget a month ago Marks and Spencer closed half his store in France due to Brexit
    Marks & Spencer to close more than half its stores in France due to Brexit supply problems

    Who's next?

But apparently we've had those products for some time now, so I'd imagine people are going to be somewhat disappointed.

    This is yet another mark against Brexit.

    "Now that we aren't sending our wonderful British products overseas, there are more of them available in this country. Another Brexit benefit chums. Which explains why all of our shelves are full, despite the lies that certain Remoaners are trying to perpetuate."

    Ugh. I feel sick even satirising him.

    Pretty spot on impression don't forget to add how this totes will make products cheaper because they will be lots of products in the UK or something.

    I'm not talking to the soon to be deleted burner, so can somebody remind him that those empty shelves in Brussels were due to a strike, rather than a shortage of drivers. If he'd read the article that was linked, he would have known that, but reading and understanding don't seem to be high on the list of aptitudes required for Brexiteers.

    Maybe also remind him that I'm a UK citizen, and I'm here reporting that I've seen empty shelves. I'm pretty sure that there are plenty of others in this thread that can do the same. I'll believe my own eyes, and reports from other people, ahead of someone that doesn't understand what "you're banned, go away" means and who refuses to say which part of the country he's in.

    Gives off serious incel vibes, that one.

    There's a whole bunch of reports of empty shelves, with evidence from experts.

    Oh wait, you're a Brexiteer. Anything in the MSM is fake news and made up. So that won't do. And anything from experts can be immediately dismissed, because you don't believe in experts.

    Maybe our burner can tell us what he'd actually accept as "evidence" of the shortages we all know are happening? Because it took me a full minute of googling to pull together the stories above.

    Been shopping the last couple of weeks, noticed Aldi had one of their frozen fish sections empty for a few days, its for things like fish cakes, salmon etc, its 4 half cabinets with doors that open to you. The rest of the shop was full.

    Tescos, i did notice a shortage of Bananas, besides that the entire shop with all its shelves was completely full.

    ~I also found a section for turkey's in both shops, aldi's one having about 30 birds in it, all the way from a £22 pounds one down to about £10 for some crowns, i was actually surprised to find them as xmas is still a long way off.

    I shall take a trip down to my local smiths next week to see how they are doing.

    More Brexit benefits announced today.

    I'm not sure eurochums if you are aware that the EU effectively has a citizenship fee. This is hidden within the tax rates on domestic fuel whereby no EU member state is permitted to charge less than 5% VAT on domestic energy.

    As promised at the time of the referendum by Brexiteers, voting to leave would allow the UK to reduce VAT below the EU mandated 5%.

    When we Vote Leave, we will be able to scrap this unfair and damaging tax.

    https://www.express.co.uk/news/polit...et-2021-brexit

    Brexit benefits promised, Brexit benefits delivered by our caring Conservatives for all here in the sunlit uplands. No wonder, thanks to Brexit, everyone has more money in their pockets and in our booming economy the shops can barely restock the shelves as quick as UK consumers can empty them!

    What wonderful times we live in, so many Brexit benefits for all...

    Welcome to dribbles world; where "considering" is the same as doing. Where "a cut" means the same as abolishing. Where taking extra pounds in NI to pay for the NHS that Brexit was supposed to pay for on its own can be ignored, but not taking so much tax on fuel is a Brexit benefit.

    Oh, and where the huge increases in fuel bills we're experiencing in this post Brexit hellscape mean that the VAT tax income from energy has massively gone up. Meaning they could cut the rate and still be getting just as much out of us.

    And dribbles is also ignoring that EU countries have been taking genuine steps to help people in this energy crisis. While bumbling Boris sits on his arse in a holiday home doing fuck all.

    You're fooling nobody with this shit dribbles. Not even yourself, I suspect.

    No one is being fooled Huey for sure, so many great companies investing in Britain. These Brexit benefits are pouring in so fast not even I can keep up...

    Thanks Boris from a grateful public for all these benefits delivered, no wonder he is the most popular leader in Europe.
