The people who passed off a pair of gloves as *two* items of PPE may not be entirely honest.

Thanks Terry. It's the first I've heard of it.

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

That will probably kick the crap out of RV sales in the UK and hit Gaslow and the like very hard too, along with those people who convert petrol vehicles to run on LPG.

I wonder what the map of outlets would look like with those removed.

They are stressing it's only the Shell stations that will be decommissioned, is it available in other stations or is it Calor only ?

If it's Calor only, they will not support the refilling of Gaslow type ylinders I am sure....

Simple answer begins with b and ends with ugger for MH owners....

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

If the Shell retraction from the market is not replaced it may be just another encouragement for UK MHomers to tour on the Continent where supplies seem to be adequate.
