  1. He can probably afford several given what he says he warns.
  2. Here's another view from https://www.bondvigilantes.com/blog/2010/02/02/what-happened-the-last-time-the-uk-defaulted/ "This Time Is Different (we’ve plugged it before), Reinhart and Rogoff do not have Britain in their very short list of six nations that have never defaulted (New Zealand, Australia, Thailand, Denmark, Canada and the USA). " And if I'd not truncated the quote it would back you up on the last default being in the interwar period, 1932, to the USA. But 1932 isn't never. Although, I'd note the USA defaulted on debt to France after the War of Independence which trig
  3. Was this before or after Macron said this should be done? Not that I'm giving macron much credit for seeing anything other than a headline.
  4. The UK was in trouble after WW2 too. Richard Roberts notes in When Britain Went Bust, his absorbing, “The years from 1964 to 1967 witnessed essentially a continuous sterling crisis.” From the mid-1940s to mid-1970s, Britain was the heaviest user of IMF resources. You can't really accuse Belgium of having defaulted on sovereign debt before it had any. I may have been wrong about the 1976 debt default, I'll research more, but still bankrupt in a way, depending on definition.
  5. When is your research being published? And we're back to eugenics.
  6. Untrue. It depends on subject. How is this manipulation effected? You seem to be confusing either big state advocates or Marxist-Leninist theories of the avant-garde with the left which in the UK is social democratic. Where there is any dislike it's a suggestion that the EU is corpratist, which was Corbyn's issue. How are you defining bankrupt? If you mean default on sovereign debt, then you are missing quite a few nations on your list that have not (e.g. Beligium) and UK shouldn't be on it, having last defaulted in 1976.
  7. Or smallpox. One of the drivers can be long COVID, apparently, which is not confined to old and fat people and includes some quite fit, healthy people. I hadn't realised hats were so dangerous. I bought some socks - please tell me I am safe! That's right. Smoking is dangerous. COVID is 120k, which is more, even if some are those that might have died of smoking now or in the near future. I've never managed to travel anywhere on a virus. One reason is that the lockdown measures are very effective against influenza. And part of that may be due to th
  8. It turns out that doesn't seem to be true. A significant proportion of people end up with long COVID with unknown long-term effects over an unknown period of time and unknown effects on the economy. And lots more people would have died. How many do you think should be sacrificed? The mutuation likelihood is based infection rate x people, so there would just as much opportunity for new variants. The new and dangerous variants have largely been from places with high infection rates matching best your description of what you believe to be safest, undermining your belief/assertion.
  9. Mutations is how they determined that most of the cases in New York were infections from Europe. That was around April last year. There were no trials of vaccines at the time.
  10. It's not forgotten at all that the Left was opposed. Generally, it's not now, but Corbyn's leaver credentials were mentioned every 75 seconds in 2016.
  11. I was vilified for suggesting the second wave was beginning at the end of September and made some projections which turned out to be moderately accurate (I just curve fitted as I am not an epidemiologist). I'm going to hazard a guess: "Not in the slightest". The Great Reset is about recognising economic and technological change and proposing it work better for people in an intentional way and the pandemic is a random event. Why would it be fortuitous? In many ways it's made things much harder for globalists. How could such a random event be an intrinsic part?
  12. You'd think it was legally binding if you listened to Johnson or Gove... I can't see the SNP not winning the election. I can't say whether or not it will top 50%. I think it's unlikely that the SNP is going to implode, though.
  13. It was specifically once in a generation but with an assurance that if things changed another would be allowed. The government is reneging on the latter bit. That might actually be the final straw here, ironically.
  14. Spain has no veto over Scottish independence. Scotland could join EFTA. Relatively few will have Scottish grandparents. But it will be complicated, and I presume there will be a CTA as with Ireland. It could get... interesting.
