It wouldn't be difficult then to argue that the fat moll outside the takeaway shop with the other fat molls is not carrying out essential business, given that most of the ones I see could easily go 3 weeks with nothing but water.Brother in law witnessed bloke fined by cops after leaving Bunnings with a plant - not essential says plod.
Based on what I've seen on here, there are some that would argue that if you bought some reno supplies and fell off your ladder or took a finger off with your circular saw you'd be unnecessarily tying up emergency services and there may be no hospital beds available.We went to Bunnings and bought paint, sanders, sanding discs, paint rollers and paintbrushes - so we could have a blitz on house maintenance. No-one bothered us, there are no Police guarding Bunnings, I think that's overkill.
That’s a relief - I’ve got a big shopping list to fill at Bunnings..My workshop neighbour is a truckie hauling dry freight vans (subbying to Toll) for mostly Coles and Woolworths. He runs their goods from their distribution centres around Perth, to the shopping centres.
He did say about 8 or 10 days ago, that they were starting see delays in getting supplies from China - because of the lockdowns. There were quite a few ships half-loaded in China, and they were unable to finish loading them.
But since then, most of China has started to open up again, and the goods are starting to move again. He did say, what was making it worse, was the panic buying here.
He mentioned they normally put 130 semi-trailers a day through the distribution centre, but it was up to 190 trailers on some days, and it was utter bedlam. But things have started to return to normal.
