If you thought things were bad here in the U.S., just wait until you get a load of what’s happening in the U.K.
The country is currently dealing with strict vaccine mandates and is experiencing a considerable fuel shortage due to massive numbers of truck drivers having to be now vaccinated.
The panic is real in Britain, and people are already coming to blows over the gas shortage.
Check out this video of two Brits going at it right at the gas pump:
Things are probably about to get even worse as it’s not just gas shortages that Britain is facing.
The vaccine mandates are having a significant impact on many aspects of the economy: store shelves have never been barer, and electricity is also a big concern.
LONDON — Britain has been plunged into uncertainty as issues over gasoline, electricity and food have prompted warnings of “a really difficult winter” for the country.
A significant lack of truck drivers has meant deliveries of fuel and goods have fallen short.
In a bid to incentivize people to take the job, some employers have reportedlyoffered salaries as high as £70,000 ($95,750) a year, with joining bonuses of £2,000.
Speaking to ITV News on Thursday, Paul Scully, the U.K.’s minister for small businesses, warned that “this is going to be a really difficult winter for people.”
“We know this is going to be a challenge and that’s why we don’t underestimate the situation that we all find ourselves in,” he said. However, Scully told Times Radio on Friday that there was “no need for people to go out and panic buy.”
Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s spokesman said earlier this week that there was no shortage of fuel in the U.K., and people should continue to buy gas as normal. He also described the U.K.’s food supply chain as “highly resilient,” but acknowledged some businesses in the industry were facing challenges and said the government was having meetings with representatives from the sector.
What an absolute disaster right?
And thanks to Biden’s proposed vaccine mandate, this chaos could be coming to a city near you!
