Re: Brexit in October?

I noticed as we did the weekly shop today that folks seem to be stocking up on basics. The number of bumper bags of loo roll visible at checkouts was significant. I also noticed that items like Ibuprofen and cotton buds were in short supply. It seems to me that the realities of a no deal are sinking...

Long time member first post

Hi folks, I have been a member for a while but have not had the courtesy to introduce myself. This was highlighted by my recent attempts to add to a new thread about prepper phones! I have followed the site for a while and found much useful information here. Personally I am not the sort of prepper t...
