    I fill up when I’m empty, no change of routine here.

    5k emergency visas, 100k HGV drivers missing.
    Bringing in the army? 2k HGV drivers and how many of them are Territorial and already out there driving lorries?

    Why would a European HGV driver bother to come to the UK on a short visa that ends on Christmas Eve? They were not wanted and so left and now with better pay in the EU and less bureaucracy...What apart from British exceptionalism will make Shapps et al think it will work???

    It’s also a speeded process of behaviour. Covid has reduced movement & increased the demand for delivery drivers in domestic markets, drivers will go where the work is.

    Cycling in the peaks today, big queues at petrol stations in the Hope Valley as people with ‘cunning plans’ bump into their contemporaries.

    “Why don’t we take a drive into the peaks using petrol to fill up the car, no one else will have thought of that”.

    Absolute morons.

    In a lot of cases, "earlier immigrants"......

    Sue Pertwee-Tyr Well, I can dream, can’t I?

    I guess it depends what you mean by ‘indigenous Brit’. How many previous generations being born here makes your generation indigenous?

    Clive - you're very probably not wrong. The scaremongering about their not being enough generation for an EV world is, for the most part, just that, scaremongering.

    The real issue is having enough power generation going forward full stop..........

    It’s happening up here too though on the island (Bute) yesterday there was only one other car on the forecourt so I’m guessing it’ll get easier for you out in the wilds?

    Sue Pertwee-Tyr Well, I can dream, can’t I?

    Doesn't that count as a queue, in Bute though?

    It's an odd mix around here. I went past three filling stations (on foot) this afternoon. Texaco 1: all pumps available, no queue. Texaco 2: all pumps occupied, but no queue. Asda: all pumps occupied, plus long queue. (It's possible Texaco 1 was out of fuel, plus unleaded was 5p a litre more than at the Asda).

    Again, National Grid says yes and anyone sensible charges an EV overnight when the demand and hence price (on an EV tariff) and also gas usage on average is a lot lower.

    If you truly are indigenous, Welsh.
