Panic Buy !If there is one thing I have learned these past 18 months is how fear can have such a grip on a nation; indeed an entire world. The COVID pandemic has caused us to be extremely fearful and in large sections of the community, totally irrational, thinking our very existence hinges on how many toilet rolls we have in our home!The latest “panic” was down to our mainstream media reporting that there was a shortage of fuel causing mass hysteria and a crazy scrabble for the pumps. Don’t you just love our news outlets, what a bunch of honourable and trustworthy peopleThe story of the nurse driving around for hours looking for fuel so she could go to her work to save lives, really cracked me up. She spent the day wasting fuel, looking for more fuel!!.. You couldn’t make it up!
The press can get away with it, so why can’t we?(PS- I am being flippant of course)
