Please may I point out to the minority of people who still persist in being greedy and having more items of shopping than they really need, shopping three or four times a week.

These people just haven’t any thought for others, especially those who just simply cannot afford to shop more than once a week. It is of no wonder that the shelves in the supermarkets and shops are being stripped like locusts would a field.

There is no need for these people to shop and grab like they do and there is of course no need whatsoever to panic buy, the country isn’t at or involved in a war. That said, it would make me wonder if stuff was rationed and these people had to use a ration book, perhaps they would realise and see how important it is not to be greedy and mean.
