THE government has conceded that Domino’s drivers are key workers and should be given priority access to fuel.
Domino’s drivers will be allowed to jump queues at petrol stations, like healthcare workers and social care staff, because otherwise the nation faces the real risk of eating something without a stuffed crust.
Transport secretary Grant Shapps said: “Domino’s drivers put their lives on the line every damn night for us. We owe them.
“With panic buyers snapping up pizzas they don’t need on Two For Tuesday, drivers need all the help they can get. We’ve got military personnel on standby to dish out garlic and herb dip if needs be.
“Ambulances, police and anyone just trying to get the kids to school won’t mind making way for these servants of a hungry nation. Also any Foxton’s Minis.”
Housing secretary Michael Gove was later filmed filling up at a south London garage with one of those wedge-shaped Domino’s delivery things affixed to the roof of his ministerial Mercedes.
