Still can't quite work out why we are deliberately destroying the economies of every first world nation because of this flu virus. Yesterday I went shopping at the local mega supermarket where the she

It looks like Trump is surrounded by mercenaries. He does not want complete lockdown in US but other coordinated forces keeping up the pressure. Interesting fact. Both CDC and Johns Hopkins recei

I  follow this page and I saw how Spain became from a nice yellowish spot to a complete red warning place. Mainly because of the great number of tourists that went there in summer. https://www.ec

Nobody cares, Tom.  People come here to learn about trading.  The vast majority of people who come here would love to see examples of others who have managed to overcome difficulties and 'trade successfully, consistently'.  Have you ever been able to do this?

NHS data update of people dying in hospitals in England and Wales of Covid-19 (Sept 30th).

Just 1% of the total deaths (which itself is a tiny fraction of the total population) were under 60 years old and with no pre existing medical conditions.

Sad to see you in this state, Tom.

17,700 views retard. That's why you jump on everyone else's threads, no one is interested in any of your scatological, infantile drivel 😁

poor little attention seeker 😥

'London to Enter Tier 2 Friday Midnight'.

The rules in full:

  • People must not meet with anybody outside their household or support bubble in any indoor setting, whether at home or in a public place
  • All businesses and venues can continue to operate, in a Covid-secure manner, other than those that remain closed in law, such as nightclubs and adult entertainment venues
  • Certain businesses selling food or drink on their premises are required to close between 10pm and 5am. Businesses and venues selling food for consumption off the premises can continue to do so after 10pm as long as this is through delivery service, click-and-collect or drive-thru
  • Schools, universities and places of worship remain open
  • Weddings and funerals can go ahead with restrictions on the number of attendees
  • Organised indoor sport and exercise classes can continue to take place, provided the Rule of Six is followed
  • The “Rule of Six” will continue to apply outdoors and in private gardens
  • People should aim to reduce the number of journeys they make where possible. If they need to travel, they should walk or cycle where possible, or to plan ahead and avoid busy times and routes on public transport

'WHO says Europe's coronavirus second wave 'raises great concern' but is NOT as bad as April's peak because despite daily cases tripling, deaths are 80% LOWER'

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8843379/Europe-coronavirus-Second-wave-not-bad-says-WHO.html

Oh, so the new wave of lockdowns is because of the normal Autumn uptick in corona virus cases then?

!!! ICUs close to full capacity!!! ...

BUT ...

ICU's are supposed to be at 85% capacity at this time of year ...

Data reveals city's ICU units are 85% full most years as winter approaches.

and all because these clowns can't admit they made a monumental mistake.

“Is not now the time to announce a date... by when every single person in the population will be tested every week?” asks Tory MP Jeremy Hunt Health Secretary Matt Hancock says he hopes to expand testing capacity

thought things could't get more stupid? you'd be wrong.

York University tells students who are self isolating they must wait behind during any Fire evacuation.

Better they burn to death than risk spreading covid 😳

"The UK govts have no ‘exit strategy’ from the Coronavirus restrictions & recurrent lockdowns because there isn’t meant to be an exit strategy. The ‘New Normal’ is meant to be permanent. Johnson couldn’t have been plainer about this in his ‘Great Reset’ Tory conference speech."

Neil Clark  @NeilClark66

So this is the new normal but it gets better, has anyone seen Flu lately?

CDC 'Flu cases down 95%'

Every Cold and Flu is now Covid. And this 'new normal' will last until we 'beat' Covid.

We are being pushed into a do or die fight to end Flu, we are destroying the economy and the social fabric to try to wipe out, in a few short months, a virus that's been around hundreds of millions of years before humans ever walked the earth.

Now that's insane.

Or, as the Remnant video above suggests is it all a play to force you to accept the 'Great Reset' now and hand over total control to the Global socialist elites?

The data shows the Covid virus is no worse than common Flu, the data out of Asian counties showed that back in January and has been repeated in western counties since. This corona virus strain has been deliberately politicised and weaponised to force dramatic and sudden social change chief of which is a massive erosion of civil rights and liberties.

WHAT HAVE THE GLOBALISTS BEEN DOING TO YOU NOW, TOM?

Do tell us.  We all want to hear it, that's why we came to a trading forum after all.

I'm really sorry you haven't been consistently profitable for over four years.  Those darn globalists, Tom.  Those darn globalists 😢

This is a very good article explaining the what Covid-19 actually is and how we can fight it:

Although the virus behind covid-19 is less deadly than the one that causes SARS in a given single case, that does not mean that it is less dangerous on the whole. On the contrary, it harms many more people. To understand why, consider two pathogens. Imagine that for every 1,000 people, the first pathogen makes 20 seriously ill and kills two. The case fatality rate is 10%.

Now imagine a second pathogen that again makes 20 seriously ill and kills two for every 1,000 people, but also infects a further 180 people making them mildly or moderately ill, but not killing them. Perhaps some of them are left seriously disabled, too. But the case fatality rate gets calculated as two deaths out of 200, for a mere 1%. The second disease seems much milder. In reality it is far worse: no one would prefer to be in a group facing the second pathogen rather than the first—with ten times as many people infected.

The second situation partly characterises the current pandemic. Covid-19 encompasses a range of severity and a variety of symptoms (affecting not just our respiratory system, but also our gastrointestinal and neurological systems in some cases). Perhaps half of those infected are asymptomatic. Some who fall ill indeed suffer serious long-term health problems. But because, for many, the symptoms resemble a mild cold, there is a tendency for the public and politicians to take it less seriously. Thus, its protean nature makes controlling it harder.

    • Just wondering if anybody received the dividends payments from Burford Capital. Believe the payment date was last Friday (18/06) but I still haven't had any paid into my ISA account. Thanks, Jeeve
