Supply chains are messed up worldwide, but in other places that means higher prices and longer wait times for some things you order on line, not empty shelves in grocery stores or people not being able to buy fuel for their car.

You'd hope that screwing Covid and Brexit up so royally would result in electoral consequences but somehow they've managed to distract the public and/or shift the blame.
