Not a surprise but still no less depressing to observe. The UK’s redundancy rate - the proportion of employees being made redundant over the past three months - is at the highest level since comparable records began in 1995. Chart from this morning’s @ONS data

Grim news from the ONS:

Quote

The provisional number of deaths registered in England and Wales in the week ending 15 January 2021 (Week 2) was 18,042.

This was 291 more than Week 1, and 4,220 deaths higher than the five-year average for Week 2

yes, the sudden increase is very interesting and very worrying, it's the over 80s age group again and coincides with the vaccinations rollout 🤔

there is also the possibility though that it's the normal flu season numbers with added deaths due to lockdown.

''Sweden - no lockdowns, no masks, hospitals emptying, antibodies through the roof in past weeks, very little excess mortality in 2020, beat the pants off ~25 countries - how? They followed WHO 2019 Pandemic Guidelines. They did not follow China CCP Propaganda Lockdown "Science"

once again, a pandemic is supposed to describe an obvious and extraordinarily high all deaths count. Some clowns have been even trying to compare covid-19 with the 1918 Spanish flu. Minor fluctuations do not signify a pandemic and not surprising as covid-19 has a 99.9% survival rate.

No idea where this number comes from.

https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/data/mortality

UK death rate of 2.7% therefore a  survival rate of 97.3%

And let's conveniently ignore all the long term problems experienced by many of the survivors...

you really do live in a bubble don't you.

the long term affects experienced by many covid survivors will be nothing compared to the long term affects of lockdown. UK govt report last July estimated 200,000 premature deaths over the next 5 years. US estimating 1.37 million deaths resulting from job losses and recession caused by lockdown business closures over the next few years went through this morning, I think from Forbes magazine.

Meanwhile data from ONS still a bit confusing as they they can't decide on numbers 'involving' covid or 'due to' covid and somehow end up with more covid deaths than excess deaths.

anyway, no doubt you'll BS yourself with some pedantic drivel complaining about these stats. The argument has swung so far away from the msm BS no one really cares about the die hard whingers. You should start a new thread as well, then you won't need to bother wasting my time.

Used to be quoted as "look how great they are doing without a lockdown", here are the 4 Scandinavian countries today:

you don't actually know what these restrictions are do you 🤣

Since you quickly respond without reading the article, here is a bit of text I copied from it. 

The decision comes as Sweden, which has the highest per capita COVID death rate of all Scandinavian countries, struggles to battle a second wave of the virus with emergency wards filling up to critical capacity.

You have to look for another country to prove your point, dear.

this bs was rejected from the start, not comparable, Sweden has similar pop density to UK. don't waste time regurgitating old bs, just shows how behind the curve you are.

and that would be covid deaths as by the faulty PCR test then.

The risk of posting fake data to prove a lie is that others can check it and disprove it.

Your data is too weak, it is too easy to disprove it. Fake numbers, cooked screenshots, weird memes... You can't expect people to buy it, we all have the option to Google it and see where that data is wrong, dear.

complete drivel and just shows how different labs misuse the PCR

and you have never disproved any of it, 'ohohoh, that's slightly out of date boohoo'.

the gist is clear and you have never shown otherwise.

Just from your posts this afternoon:

  • Covid: "99.9% survival rate" DISPROVED
  • UK vs Sweden population density: DISPROVED

I could go on...

I have a feeling that you are no longer posting on this thread to do anything but to start arguments. It is obvious where you have been disproved, not only by me, also by others, with all sort of links and official reports. 

It is hopeless to carry on replying to you, you ego is on the way and you will never admit when you are wrong.

disproved nothing, you fast search garbage and expect everyone to swallow it as if it's real even when I've shown it's garbage, total self delusion.

The witch-hunting of lockdown sceptics - spiked
I’m among those who, apparently, belong in a circle of hell for questioning both the narrative & the data itself. I’m not a right-winger or indeed any winger. I’m not paid to express the views that I do.

The witch-hunting of lockdown sceptics. The demonisation of dissenters has reached hysterical proportions.https://www.spiked-online.com/2021/01/19/the-witch-hunting-of-lockdown-sceptics/

I’m well-qualified to assess what we’re told & much of it is wrong. I don’t know why & I never speculate because I’m not qualified to do so. The virus exists & has certainly contributed to many deaths. That’s about the only thing Govt & SAGE says that’s correct, IMO. What I... 

...have never done is to encourage anyone to break the absurd rules. I’ve questioned the absence of any long term safety data & non-clinical reproductive toxicology data. I’ve even recommended those at obviously elevated risk of death if infected to consider getting vaccinated. 

So when I question everything else, citing peer reviewed articles by eminent researchers, clearly showing that lockdowns do not significantly inhibit spreading or reduce mortality, that’s what experienced scientists do. When I observe in frustration that it’s invalid to operate.. 

...a medical diagnostic test without regularly characterising its operational false positive rate, I do so because it’s true. There are no exceptions or excuses for this lack. What is also true is that it’s impossible to interpret the results. No way to tell what fraction of.. 

...positive results are true vs false. This invalidity permeates every other measure upon which to navigate this crisis, so that we cannot even be sure what fraction of deaths attributed to Covid19 are correct. I am not a signed up member of a campaigning group, though I’m in... 

...regular contact with thoughtful people in numerous groups, all wanting nothing more than transparency in the data & underlying assumptions being used to set policy. If I was a neutral observer, looking at my actions, I’d be hard pressed to find a reason why I might be... 

...sticking my head above the parapet, other than my several decades of relevant expertise in interpreting complex biological data sets is telling me we’re being seriously misled. I’ve no history of public comment on anything before this crisis. Like you all, I too am a victim.. 

..of the malign & extended effects of policy for which there is no evidence. You’re entirely free to ignore everything I write. So how critics believe me asking questions leads to deaths seems to me to irrational & causes me to question their motives.

    • You need to get hung up on them, because they happen - I know for a fact that during 2007-09 bear market you could have traded long and made money, because I did it, but the easiest route was shorting and down Get a chart WEEKLY of any forex market or commodity - go back as far as poss and notice the big turns/swings - much more volatile than the SP500 - there's a reason for that  I always say anyone who's making a packet from trading or Investing on SP500 etc go have a crack at the forex or commodity markets - the stock markets natural direction is UPWARDS - especially buy and holders, fund managers would get ripped apart on the forex + comm markets OK - Its totally Impossible to know EXACTLY what the SP500 is going to do on a daily/weekly basis, but it WAS possible to know that a) 2007-09 was going to be a bear market before 2007 even arrived and b) that the market would stop around the level it did.  But this is ultra advanced and very few people are bothered about it I've written a thread on Time Cycles on here - it covers what the SP500 is doing in terms of TIME - if you understand it and think about it, it will put you ahead of 99.99999% of traders out there, because these really big corrections and crashes do not happen out of the blue - they are predictable and forecastable with high reliability years in advance  Look at the chart below - think about what I'm saying: In 1909 WD Gann said that markets always seek their gravity centre, the half way point - that's the 50% level to you and I Traders go on about fib levels - the 50% level is clearly much more important a level  What if you KNEW 1974, 2003 and 2009 should be low points? What an opportunity both long and short! This is why I researched and spent hundreds of hours on Time and Time Cycles for - I missed 2000-2009 because I didn't know what I know now, but I know when the next ones are and I have no plans of missing them These are key once in a lifetime turn points that don't happen often So what I'm trying to point out is that on the stock market the big plunges like 07-09 aren't the norm, but they do happen with very regular intervals, that will catch a lot of people out during certain cycles that the market moves through. with regards to identifying bear markets - yes using a MA to say price below this level is bearish, but it's already bearish as it approaches the level if using price formations such as lower lows etc You don't need to know what I've discovered about time to be able to trade successfully - I was just intrigued if it was possible to be able to time the really big turns etc as I'd prefer to to know if it was    
    • These are relatively rare events but I do find myself getting hung up on them. 
    • If we take the 2008 decline on the US500, I've attached a daily chart of this. You'd be better off shorting but of course you don't know that it's going to be an ongoing decline and the risk potentially is that you switch to a short preference and then the market does revert back to an upward trend. The market stayed below the 100 day MA for an extended time so maybe that's an indication of which way to trade but I know it's not always reliable. Probably also helps if you use a trailing stop at least to minimise damage.
