    No Banana Milkshake, No Party!

    I understand the appeal of a Maccies at 3am post beers or convenience at the roadside, not sure I would get one delivered to be honest. Just buy some Heinz burger sauce and some superior burgers, much nicer. Unless you burn it :D

    Going back to the topic of discussion the other day, PPE. Germany have been widely praised for their handling of the pandemic both in the wider media and on these forums. Yet even health care workers there have been protesting about a lack of PPE. It is far from a British problem.

    Again, just trying to provide some balance. I also think that the increase in testing over the past week has been pretty impressive, even if there are some questions to be asked over whether the 100,000 target was actually met.

    Even with the new license requirements several countries now have on exports of ppe (such as the UK) I don't think there's really any one country who can say they handled it well.

    Some questions is about right.

    They've included posted test kits that havne't been returned yet, according to the official figures on the government's own site they've actually tested 71,000 and not 100,000.

    As it stands, it'll likely consist of:
    • Sharing box of McNuggets
    • Sharing box of Mozzarella Dippers
    • 5 Chicken Selects
    • Large fries
    • Large Coke
    • McFlurry (depends on what's available, so long as it isn't a Nestlé product)
    Almost tempted to get some prosecco chilling in the fridge as well to make it a bit more decadent. Because why not?

    Can't wait to hear the complaints as the euphoria turns to absolute anger when they can't keep up with demand quickly enough when everyone tries to order at the same time on the first couple of days that they open.

    "Janine, 23, blasted the fast food company for cancelling her order and blamed them for ruining the only thing that her son Logan, 12, had been looking forward to for the past 6 weeks".

    They closed because they were not selling enough to justify staying open, the 2 different ones I went too were both very quiet, it’s only when they announced they were going to close everyone went nuts and started queuing.
    It was a business decision to shut as they were not making the £££, nothing to do with safety of the workers like they tried to make out.

    That's June 2021, if lockdown runs until then it'll be pretty bad for everyone.

    That’s not how the business model works though, they need volume.
    They can’t just order 200 burgers from the supplier, these factories are set up to supply mostly McDonalds and it isn’t worth running a shift making literally 100’s of thousands of a certain product be it burgers/nuggets or buns per shift.
    I’m in the industry and heard it will take 3 weeks notice before they can start up again properly to allow the supply chain to start up again, McDonalds buy more tonnage of beef than any other customer in the UK and Ireland.
