    You can't cure stupid!

    Trouble is, this type of thing becomes contagious and the story becomes self-fulfilling. I honestly think it's irresponsible journalism. If we all acted responsibly there would be plenty to go round.

    I'm stocked up (normal levels) and by the time I get round to doing my next 'large' shop I'll bet that the shelves are back to normal. If not, I'll buy a few copies of the Telegraph, cut the pages into small squares and use it for the only thing I see it fit for.

    I'll probably buy a couple of copies of the Daily Mail and Express - that's all they're good for!

    We only buy the Saturday Mail for the big crossword. There really isn't a decent newspaper now since Lord Rees-Mogg of famous memory, was the brilliant editor of the Times.
    I doubt sometimes whether a quiet and unagitated life would have suited me - yet I sometimes long for it.

    The people are scared, and scared people do silly and unpredictable things. The government should have nipped this in the bud.

    I first saw reports linking 5G just after Wuhan escalated. Had the government been proactive and acted then, these attacks would likely not have happened.

    I really feel that Johnson's government has not acted as they ought have done. I know, easy to criticise hind sight is perfect, and they've not faced this type of thing before. But they did know at some point we were likely to face this type of scenario. I think an enquiry after the event will highlight several governmental failings.
