  1. Trust takes a very long time to earn, but can be destroyed very quickly. A fiat currency relies exclusively on trust. “Trust takes years to build, seconds to break, and forever to repair.”
  2. Wow The only one thing I can say about all the "revelations" is Why did Boris Johnson even think it was a good idea to hire such a smug, delusional, totally incompetent, egoistical nasty piece of work as Cummings? This was a terrible decision to give this insane guy a job especially in a delicate position in PR. Boris has gone down in my estimation because of this incompetence decision.
  3. I don't know what your on but I don't want any of it😝
  4. I do think you are right, but the end result will be get jabbed or catch covid (or probably both) . I can not see how anyone socially active over the next few months will not be exposed to the virus.
  5. Its not climate - climate change is really not a huge thing. ITS POPULATION. Exactly right. It should be obvious really but many people refuse to see it, why? It is such an import issue and will cause major problems within a generation. How long can this planet survive with a population of over 9 billion? 10 billion 12 billion.? Could the planet survive for a prolonged period (1000 years or more) even if the population halved to around 5 billion?
  6. Yes of course we should. Maybe we should encourage them future by helping them to land safely, we are already doing that? OK. But we do not look after them well enough some of them are given less than average housing and their human rights are trodden all over. New accommodation must be prioritized so every one of them is able to have a modern home with all the facilities of an average UK citizen. Special payments for other needs including education must be made. Those that want to work should be able to and those that don’t should be able to get the exact same benefits as anyone else, it is their human right. Anyone that disagrees with any of this is a racist gammon, scumbag and deserves to have all their rights and privileges taken away. We don’t know how lucky we are and without these kind soles we will not be able to get the extremely cheap labour we need to suppress wages of the useless indigenous population and increase the demand on housing so that homes can increase in value to make us all so much better off. I have expanded your thought for you. No need to thank me.☺️
  7. One of Ambrose's better articles Markets fear inflation much more than the delta variant If central banks don't lance the QE boil now they probably never will, risking soaring inflation that takes the world back to the 1970s AMBROSE EVANS-PRITCHARD20 July 2021 • 4:51pm
  8. Thank you Scottbeard I had not thought of all those that have been still operating or even the full diversity of the sector.
  9. Dear Client, From 1 August 2021, any credit balances of euros will attract a negative interest rate of -0.50% (annualised). This means that a positive balance of euros will result in a debit on your account. As an example, if you kept a balance of 200 euros every day, then the debit would equate to -1 euro per year, or -25 euro cents every quarter. Regards iDealing.com Ltd En français - pour traduction uniquement: Madame, Monsieur. A partir du 1er août 2021, tout solde positif d'euros sera soumis à un taux d'intérêt négatif de -0,50% (annualisé). Cela signifie qu'un solde positif d'Euros entraînera un débit sur votre compte. A titre d'exemple, si vous gardiez un solde de 200 euros par jour, alors le débit équivaudrait à -1 euro par an, soit -25 centimes d'euros chaque trimestre.

  10. I do not know why but sample sections of the adult population are showing around 90% have covid antibodies which would vary in amount and effectiveness against the virus. Vaccination info shows us that around 46.5 million adults (87.99%) have had a first dose and 36.5 million (68.81) have had both doses. If you also take into consideration my guestimate on around 15 million adults (approx. 30%) who have already had covid there is quite an overlap. Some people who have had a vaccine or who have had covid do not show antibodies, I understand, but could still have a high degree of protection. Some people who have antibodies may not have much protection. So, it is quite confusing. BUT overall, I would suggest we can say that a very large proportion of the adult population have a high degree of immunity. My conclusion is that if the country is fully opened that before Christmas this year, we will have got to herd immunity irrespective of what this percentage is. It will be the younger children that are likely to be the last to catch the virus and prolong it. Questions are how many people will be hospitalized and how many will die as a direct effect of Covid and how much more immunity do you get from catching Covid than having a vaccination? We do not actually know how many people have died of covid already? Do we? A fair estimate would be around 64,000? Around half the number who died within 28 days of catching covid. The death figure will be much lower as a percentage and nominally as the official count of 128,000 included many who died of something completely different but were exposed to covid in hospital before they died. I was suggesting rates of infection could well be around 250,000 at the peak as everyone in theory becomes exposed to the virus. Looking at a guestimate to how many will end up in hospital will depend on many factors, but I would suggest it could be less than 50,000 as most of the more vulnerable have a level of protection. The death rate as a direct result of catching covid is likely to be even lower and I would think it would be less than 100 a day at the very peak. There will be other things to frighten us this winter including a possible return of the flu or other infection which many will be isolating from.
  11. 90% of the Adult population sorry, I did actually put down I was unsure on my post if you check. The figure they gave for England was 89.8% but I took the liberty of rounding up 0.2% for the extra people who caught the virus or who got vaccinated over the past 12 days. (report out 7th July) The new report comes out on the 21st July and I would expect the figure to be higher, but it depends on the survey sample as you know. The ONS can be quite vague when they want to be.
  12. Is this all-good news? You are all correct. Lockdown, mask wearing, etc. was a waste of time and people’s lives. Most of us knew this from the beginning but we are where we are. I have been looking through all the data, and the information I have seen is much more positive than Vallance suggests. What he is actually telling younger people in affect is getting a vaccination is a waste of time. Why? The data I have seen shows that the risk of catching the virus is drastically reduced, that if you do catch it getting seriously ill is even a lower risk, and actually dying becomes extremely low even for those with complications. This virus for the vaccinated is a lower risk than the Flu we are subject to each year. Looking at the situation at this time. Approximately 25% to 30% of the population has had covid in the past 18 months. Approximately 50% of the population have been fully vaccinated (made up of the more vulnerable population) Approximately 200,000 people a day are being fully vaccinated Approximately 50,000 people a day are catching covid and it is growing number. It is said that 90% of the population have covid antibodies (I think this is just the adult population but am unsure) Looking forward We are now opening up fully and within a month the spread will be at maximum. Maybe 250,000 per day? At current trends we will have 100% (if it is ever possible) of the whole population who have either been vaccinated or who will have had covid well before Christmas. There will be no new hosts for the virus to infect. It will no longer be a threat. Questions are how many people will be hospitalized and how many will die as a direct effect of Covid and how much more immunity do you get from actually catching Covid than having a vacination?
