But talking to my current and former colleagues the twin Brexit disasters of ending Freedom of Movement and leaving The Customs Union have devastated both staffing and supply chain stability and practicality, whilst also massively increasing bureaucracy and financial complexity (all as predicted, Project Fear is now Reality Here).
Yes, the media contribute with bad reporting but we now have an economy that has self-inflicted the biggest practical challenges to everyday supply and retail since WWII with a government singularly incapable of rational, timely decisions.
Those of us old enough to remember the pre EU early 70s know exactly what to expect. Low quality, limited choice in shops. Intermittent inexplicable shortages of almost anything and everything (including medicines). Inflation. Expanding poverty. Stress on every public service. A futile Ďblame the foreignersí response from hapless governments of either colour.
Brexit is the gift that will give on giving and our complicit media will continue to try to blame everything but it.
People are lemmings. There is a hint, fuelled by the media, that there may be a fuel shortage. So what do they do, panic buy, form queues at petrol stations and create that shortage. How long is that tank going to last them. Some people need that fuel for their livelihoods, not just running the kids to school.
The media will report on this and make it worse. How I detest them. Never happy unless they can create chaos and misery
