Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
This is purely anecdotal, I know, but I have just come back from the chemist having picked up some supplies for my wife. There were two people in front of me. The first person could not get their prescription because of shortages at the suppliers but the chemist hoped it would be available by the end of next week. The second was diabetic and none of theirs was available either, but the pharmacist was off trying to find some alternative while the customer was just repeating plaintively "what am I supposed to do?"
We know there have been shortages due to stockpiling because of Brexit, so there is a potential connection, at least.
