Plenty of it sat in Amazon warehouses around the country fulfilled by Amazon or other warehouses to get around duties and just sent from here or the EU

I have only ever shopped in Waitrose once and all I bought was a jar of honey with the honeycomb in it. Far too expensive for me

Omicron B is an anagram of No Crimbo.

Re: Britain outside the EU

Try moronic

Sums up the response to this variant. They're all running about like headless chickens.

Boris Johnson orders de-escalation of tensions with France

UK prime minister wants a reset in Anglo-French relations, possibly via a new treaty

UK prime minister Boris Johnson has ordered his team to de-escalate tensions with French president Emmanuel Macron, telling colleagues not to retaliate against what London regards as recent provocation from Paris.

Johnson is convinced that Macron is going to win a second term, according to allies, and wants to prepare the ground for better relations after next Aprilís presidential elections, possibly via a new Anglo-French treaty...

While Macronís comments have attracted headlines in the UK, they have generated little interest in France. Aside from a row over the UKís allocation of licences to Franceís fishermen operating in British waters, French media are much more focused on Covid-19, immigration and relations with Germany.

Sir Peter Westmacott, Britainís former ambassador to Paris, said: ďI donít think the French are nearly as obsessed about what goes on in Britain as we are about whatís happening in France. I donít think it wins Macron votes.Ē

No, something made up originally by an anti-vaxer.

I wish they had skipped past Omicron as it's an anagram of moronic, which gives fuel to the covidiots

Re: Britain outside the EU

UK trade has shrunk since Brexit while EU thrives - data
BREXIT, according to its backers, was meant to create endless opportunities. So far, however, the UK has failed to make the vote profitable, with the prospect of "global Britain" quickly fading according to recent data.
