The course of the Cv has been tracked as well as anyone could but my memory of the loo roll crisis itself [possibly known across the pond as the bathroom tissue crisis, possibly not, in Italian as la crisi del rotolo di carta igienica and in Swahili as shida ya kusonga choo] – my memory of the Genesis of the Loo Roll Shortage is hazy.
In short, who started the panic buying and where? Was it in the UK? In the US? Point is, what was the original trigger getting people into their cars on seven continents and scouring shelves like human locusts? And was it every country, or every western country or was it just Europe or the EU zone or Britain alone or Britain and the US?
It’s a serious question because whoever triggered it – obviously through the media, is the culprit of the whole business.
