I've decided to collect all the #brexitbenefits I observe in one thread, so it's easier to find them.

So here you have Tesco in Oban right now: ImageImageImageImage
This was KFC in Cambuslang yesterday Image
This was, I think Lidl shettleston couple of days back: ImageImage
And that was another Lidl earlier this day: ImageImage
That was Tesco in Wick last sunday ImageImageImage
And that's last week only.

I will update this thread with new #brexitbenefits everytime I see some, feel free to join in!

Lidl Rutherglen just now. Image
Morrisons cambuslang now. ImageImageImage
Asda Blantyre now ImageImageImage
Forgot to take pics in Lidl today but:
- barely any tomatoes
- little salad
- mushrooms all brown and just day before use-by date
- flowers whitering.
- one avocado left
- no yoghurt at all, some other dairy products low.
I am in Tesco shettleston at the moment. Seems that it's no longer food only anymore.... ImageImageImage
Oh, we have shelf cardboard fillers here already! Image
And where shelves are not empty yet, the goods are carefully spread thinly across them... ImageImageImage
Tesco silverburn yesterday. I know it was sunday evening but this is Tesco I did my shopping for over a decade when I lived in southside,.including Sunday nights, bank holidays etc, and I NEVER seen it so bad. ImageImageImageImage
I am in Poland now. This local corner shop has more fresh fruit and veg than any of the British supermarket I've been to in recent weeks ImageImage
Look, I found a supermarket with plenty of fresh food!

Alas, it's not in Glasgow but in Wrocław, Poland :/ ImageImageImageImage
I am back in Scotland now. Tesco dalmarnock is havi g empty shelves despite being refurbished and about the third of the shop floor being out of use: ImageImage
Coop Malaig now. Not so bad, bit they had no mineral water AT ALL. ImageImageImageImage
Not too big choice of wine too, but at least it's 12 pence cheaper on the bottle (or whatever that Brexit benefit is)
:-) Image
I had to visit three local shops today before I managed to find mushrooms. I grabbed the last box of them.

The positive thing is that they were fresh - it's first time in months that I got mushrooms that are not already starting to brown in months (my visit to Poland excluded).
So how are things going in Tesco shettleston then? Apparently it's no longer only food items that are spread thin ImageImageImageImage
Although the choice of food still could be better ImageImageImageImage
If there is shortage of irn bru in Scotland then you know something is bruin on! :-) but if you rather have gin and tonic than you might have to reconsider. At least there is still some choice of wine (and it's cheaper by 12 pper bottle or sth, or so I heard from @johnredwood ) ImageImageImage
And it is business as usual at the veggie aisles. BREXIT usual, I mean. It's our new normal, we should get accustomed to it. ImageImage
No HGV diesel at all at Lomond Gate services in Dumbarton Image
No change in my local Tesco, but at least they had fuel :-) ImageImageImage
Well, there is no shortage of SPACE Image
And all despite the fact that large surfaces of the shops are out of use.... ImageImage
But there are some good news: I was able to pick up my girlfriend's bike from service. It needed amongst other things, set of new tires. They have arrived after only 20 days of waiting! Image

"It's only one garage" I was told when I mentioned that there was no HGV diesel at Lomond Gate earlier this week. But is it really not an issue when "only some garages have no fuel"? A thread: Image
1. Lomond Gate is the last garage on the A82 going north that is really suitable for trucks. There is a self-service one in Luss, but does not take fleet cards. Then there is Green Welly in Tyndrum but it closes at 9pm. The ones in Ballachulish and Onich are also daytime only Image
2. IIRC the next one open through the night is BP in Fort William, at the roundabout next to a distillery (and it is really small). And that's 90 miles, 2.5 hours in a truck (remember, there is that very narrow bit of A82 along Loch Lomond) Image

Polish trucking magazine 40ton.net reports: A Polish truck driver entered Kent on Monday with valid Kent permit. He turned up at Ashford when they told him that his documents need to be double-checked, so he was sent to a different truck park to wait. 1/4
On Wednesday (!) he was informed his paperwork got a green light and told to come back to Ashford custom place only to find that custom truck park is full. He was told to park on yet another truck park which serves the queue. 2/4
There, the police come and fined him 300 pounds because his Kent access permit has by this time expired. So apparently the document called "kent access permit" needs to be renamed to "Kent accessing and then sitting for days, waiting for the paperwork permit". 3/4

Truck drivers stranded on the airport near Dover are not allowed to use portable cookers, even outside their trucks, due to fire hazard. So they can't cook themselves a meal or even boil a kettle for tea.

They are not allowed to make pictures as well:

As the only way to protest available to them they sound their horns: facebook.com/Badur456/posts…

I guess the residents in the area are not amused either...
