Project fear  Wink
On the upside, they're hopeful it won't affect the water supply. Although they may have to take urgent action if there's a disruption to the supply chain for chemicals etc. Like those two and a half day queues at Dover, for example?

My old consultant from the renal unit in Sussex is terrified. All the filters from dialysis machines come from Germany

Without overreacting, I'm seriously thinking of abandoning the no longer good ship HMS FUCKED (Former United Countries of Kingdom: European Dissolved). I can already hear the 17.4m giving me an endorsing send off from blighty.

It will be fine, I am sure you are old enough to remember how calm and considered people were in 2000 when the fuel shortages happened for a few days.

Its not as if we live in a country where people call the police when KFC run out of chicken.

Well quite.

Wait, there'd better not be KFC shortages. My god, the humanity.

Any water issues will be regional, only affecting hundreds of thousands of people!

Interesting to see that Johnson is noted as having lied to the Queen and Yellowhammer shows we may be short of food and fuel, yet not a dicky bird regarding the matter on the front of the Mail, Express, Sun or Telegraph.

Its hardly surprising that anyone who does not read widely may be a little ill informed if they base their understanding on these mainstream propaganda sheets.

A cynic might think they have an agenda to push.

Surely that can't be the case?

On a side-note, it's sad that those four are now a natural grouping. The Telegraph always used to be a decent paper, with a clear right-wing slant of course, but still committed to actually reporting the news. Over the past 5 years (maybe longer?) though, it's become less and less committed to journalism as the rant content has escalated. Like the Mail with slightly longer words and a more upmarket style section

Interesting they have chosen to call the report Yellowhammer when one considers the little rhyme kids are taught to remember the Yellowhammer bird song...... Perhaps there is a twitcher with a sense or humour in government.

Hardly surprising, the Barclay brothers have more to lose than most if we don't leave the EU.

I've only just had a proper look at May's resignation honours for the first time. Disgusted to see that Stephen Parkinson was in there. He's the man that publicly outed the whistleblower Shahmir Sanni as gay, after Sanni had told the Observer how Vote Leave channelled money through BeLeave, a group linked to Cambridge Analytica, to get around electoral law.

Sanni had had a relationship with Parkinson, one of May’s closest advisers and a former Vote Leave official, but had not come out as gay. How low can you get?
