London N21 now completely dry. In fact, I imagine most, if not all, of the city is now completely out of fuel.

If it wasn't an issue this time last night, it certainly is now. Now about those army drivers....?!

Well done MSM. You feckwits.
Not those that "Erred on the side of caution" then?

Worry not, temporary visas are the answer apparently. We're going to ask a load of Europeans to come help out a country where half the population doesn't want them, until such a time as we don't need them anymore, then they can bugger off again.

I wouldn't have erred on the side of caution had I not read the MSM yesterday.

You are part of the problem, you’re not allowed to be frustrated.

I'm not frustrated. I shouldn't have to fill up again for at least a couple of weeks. Merely observations, old boy.

Again, another confused take on things. Lots of Leavers acknowledge that immigration is essential (myself included). What we don't need is unchecked and uncontrolled immigration.

Canada & Australia did and continue to do it right. And we will be joining them.

No confusion here. We're all well aware of the leaver's pick and choose when convenient approach to immigration. I'm just suggesting that our HGV driving European friends might not be queuing up to come back here, when there are plenty of EU countries looking for drivers that won't kick them out once they've outlived their usefulness.

I see the govt are carving up GDPR and ensuring that reversing HGVs isn't needed on the test so they can get more people to pass.
Following on from this, does this mean that with a lessened test the newly qualified drivers won't be able to drive in the EU?
