Interesting if true. Looks suspicious though.

"Contains OS data Crown copyright and database right 2020/21" doesn't look like a usual ONS disclaimer.

Can you post a link to the ONS source? otherwise not worth anything, I could knock this up in Excel in 5 minutes....

you are forgetting I don't give a **** what you think, the data is there, if you don't like it prove it wrong (I mean really, not some pedantic BS), I already showed you how to go about it but once again for the hard of thinking, go to the relevant ONS stats site, download the data and check the data points from the chart, it really is that simple. Constant bleating is no match for the ton of actual data produced, trying to find tiny cracks won't change anything, and pretending to be a 'fact checker' is just laughable.

very interesting new documentary on covid, lockdowns, the great reset, 5G, digital data and the 4th industrial revolution. 

Intelligently pulling together older stuff with new, for example Amazon expect to need no human employees within 10 years. Bill Gates expects robot workers will be taxed, the money going towards the basic universal credit payments.

Sweden has achieved natural covid herd immunity with a proven antibody count of 40% of pop and with T-cell immunity takes them to 60-70%. They did it by using the original WHO pandemic protocol (2019).

The UK, having switched to the China plan (2020 untested) are relying instead on vaccine immunity.

NB/ There will always be seasonal winter spikes in deaths of the old and sickly from respiratory disease, always has been since the dawn of time. The latest nonsense that lockdowns, masks and social distancing are fine and we should continue until there is zero covid are delusional publicity seeking morons who really don't care about your life.

I'll try one last time to get my point across, this time without any stats or charts, simply a link to a thread on Reddit with people describing their experiences of getting back into running post Covid.

These are the people that aren't in the death stats.

You will probably say that they are just "random people on the internet". Well I am part of this community and know several of them in the thread.  I also know of two others who are experiencing affects long after recovering from Covid- one still gets out of breath after walking up stairs (was previously very fit) months later and another, a semi-pro singer who literally can't sing anymore.

@Caseynotes Keep posting your memes and **** but be aware that you contributing to people taking covid less seriously and ultimately ending up like those in this thread:

Your Stockholm population density is correct.

However, NY population density is 27,000 per square mile not 5,239 according to the actual City of New York Government website: https://www1.nyc.gov/site/planning/planning-level/nyc-population/population-facts.page

Only a factor of 5 out, keep trying....

This is quite far of the mark i.e. missing facts to be inflammatory.  Merck dropped development of their vaccine candidates, following phase 1 trials.  Their finding (which will be published for peer review to stop try and stop nonsense such as the article posted here), showed that their candidate vaccines were not effective.  The immune response was inferior to those seen following natural infection ***and those reported for other SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19 vaccines.***

Merck are continuing to invest in covid related therapeutics.

oh so are you suggesting the news article didn't actually say as per above or that it didn't actually say YOUR interpretation of events?

Once again Pinky loses the plot in a desperate attempt to use pedantry to pretend the whole concept is false.

So you're actually agreeing that Sweden is more similar to a modern urbanised country than rural Finland but you either haven't got the guts to admit it or intelligence to realise it.

Probably time I left Pinky and Perky to their wikileaks, bbc and reddit fact checking and just concentrate on the actual science.

We have been tracking how most countries are coming out of 2020 with similar death totals to previous years. The UK is the outsider there having decided to restrict access to the health service in order to 'save the NHS'. which resulted in as many non-covid deaths as covid.

That's an organisation that employs 1.5 million people and burns through 4 billion in cash every week.

So inevitably sights would turn to the world as a whole and exactly as you would expect.

Deaths from ALL causes remains constant. 

A proper pandemic is supposed to add to the normal number of deaths not be instead of. That's a lot of rebranding, sure there have been a lot of covid deaths but only in similar numbers to previous bad flu years.

The highlight of the chart though is the cases numbers compared to deaths and that's the main driver of the covid hysteria and is the result of the misuse of the PCR test causing a huge ration of false positives.

Shame we had to wait till the new expensive vaccines were bought and paid for to find this out 🤔

Facebook just announced it “made a mistake” when it censored studies showing HCQ saves lives. Censorship is never “a mistake” Tech executives repeatedly made a calculated decision, month after month, silencing physicians worldwide. Censorship kills.

Early Jan England deaths data and all causes other than covid at increasingly negative (below normal) levels due to many being rebranded as covid instead.

Covid deaths 'look' to be rising but all-cause deaths roughly normal.

Since summer this is a picture of misdiagnosis not pandemic.

Just looks like clickbait, or a biased journo, to me.  Headline and summary look like they are taken from a Merck press release...just cutting the sentences down to me more sensational and create a bit of outrage to those willing to be outraged at everything. 

It's quite a catchy headline, and is bound to attract some clicks.  I guess they rely on the outrage of a few doing their promotion work.

SAGE go on the p*** take, SAGE are now warning that there could be 100,000 collateral non-covid deaths.

This will be of course due to the policies SAGE themselves recommended, chiefly lockdowns and restricted access to health care to 'save the NHS'.

Defies belief. They clearly realise they can't keep this farce running much longer. The numbers never added up but by now are so glaringly, obviously crooked they can't hide any longer.

They should all be in jail.

    • Following a flat April for retail sales and softer wages, market expectations lean towards the Reserve Bank of Australia holding rates steady at 3.85% - pending this week's Monthly CPI Indicator.   Source: Bloomberg   Forex AUD/USD United States dollar Consumer price index Australian dollar Retail  Tony Sycamore | Market Analyst, Australia | Publication date: Tuesday 30 May 2023  Last week, the retail sales report for April became the latest economic release during May to show that the RBA’s rate hiking cycle is having the desired impact and slowing the economy. Attention now turns to the release of the Monthly CPI Indicator on Wednesday. To recap, retail sales were flat (0.0%) in April, below market expectations looking for a 0.3% rise. The subdued retail sales number followed weaker-than-expected wages and employment data earlier this month. At its monthly board meeting in May, the RBA surprised the market and raised the cash rate by 25bp to 3.85%. The RBA warned that it could again lift rates in June, but it would depend on how the economy and inflation evolved. An inline or softer-than-expected Australian Monthly CPI indicator would become the fourth data point this month to support current market pricing the RBA will keep rates on hold at 3.85% when it meets next week. What is expected? In March, the monthly CPI indicator rose by 6.3% YoY, falling from 6.8% in February. It was the third month in a row that the indicator has fallen, extending its decline from a peak of 8.4% in December. The softer print in March was mainly due to a softer pace in the growth in housing and transport prices. For April, the monthly CPI indicator is expected to rise by 6.4% YoY, driven by price rises in food, clothing and footwear, housing, and transport costs. The range of expectations varies from 5.9% to 6.6%. A print of 6.2% or less would be welcomed by the interest rate market fully priced for the RBA to remain on hold in June and a minor negative for the AUD/USD. A print of 6.6% or higher would likely see the market increase the chances of an RBA rate hike in June and be a slight positive for the AUD/USD. AUD/USD technical analysis The AUD/USD closed lower last week at .6517 (-2.01%), at fresh seven-month lows, courtesy of soft commodity prices, surging US yields and weak eco data in Australia and China. The break of range and year-to-date lows, the .6565 area, was a bearish development and warns of further losses towards .6350. One point of bearish concern is that the latest Commitment of Traders positioning report shows that the market is short the AUD/USD to the tune of about 50k contracts. An ability to reclaim resistance at .6620/40 would likely be enough to trigger a short-covering rally in the AUD/USD.

    • The Australian dollar busted the range last week but appears to be pausing; building approvals came in soft for April but AUD seems to be shrugging it off and the technical conditions might set up the next move for the Aussie.   Source: Bloomberg   Forex Shares AUD/USD Australian dollar Volatility United States dollar Daniel McCarthy | Strategist, | Publication date: Tuesday 30 May 2023  The Australian dollar remains buoyed on Tuesday despite some soft domestic data. Building approvals for April fell 8.1% month-on-month, below estimates of a 2% rise and -1.0% prior. The data may support the interest rate markets’ view that the RBA will leave rates unchanged at its monetary policy meeting next week. AUD/USD technical analysis AUD/USD broke out of the 0.6565 – 0.6818 range that it had been in for 3 months on its way to making a 6-month at 0.6490 last week. Prior to piercing the lower edge of that range, the Aussie had several attempts to break the topside but failed. These false breaks can be frustrating for traders trying to play the range. The run lower also saw the price move below the lower bound of the 21-day Simple Moving Average (SMA) based Bollinger Band. A break like this is sometimes viewed as a volatility breakout and the price action following such a move can provide clues for near-term direction. If the price remains outside the band, it might suggest that momentum is evolving in that direction, in this case, bearishness. However, a close back inside the band may indicate that there is a pause in the bear run or a possible reversal. AUD/USD closed back inside the band on Friday and saw modest gains to start this week. What is clear is that realised volatility has increased as evidenced by the widening of the Bollinger Band. Looking at the 1-month At-The-Money (ATM) implied volatility options price, the market has barely moved, currently trading a touch over 10%. This may suggest that currency markets are not overly concerned with this dip in the Aussie. Support could be at the recent low of 0.6490. Further down, support may lie at the prior low of 0.6387 and the nearby Fibonacci level of 0.6381. The latter is the 78.6% Fibonacci Retracement of the move from the low of 0.6170 to the peak of 0.7158. On the topside, resistance could be at the nearby breakpoints of 0.6565 and 0.6575 or the previous peaks of 0.6675 and 0.6710. Further up, the 0.6780 – 0.6820 area might offer a more significant resistance zone with several prior highs and breakpoints.   Source: TradingView This information has been prepared by DailyFX, the partner site of IG offering leading forex news and analysis.

    • Faltering Euro Area data fuels economic slowdown fears, even as UK's robust growth battles unyielding inflation.   Source: Bloomberg   Forex Indices Inflation United Kingdom FTSE 100 Euro  Tony Sycamore | Market Analyst, Australia | Publication date: Tuesday 30 May 2023  The release of key economic data last week has increased suspicions that the European economy’s expansion is slowing while the UK continues to grapple with stubborn inflation. Euro Area data signals a slowing economy Last week, following the release of soggy industrial production data earlier this month, the Euro Area Composite PMI fell to 53.3 in May from 54.1 in April, mainly due to a deepening contraction in manufacturing (44.6 from 45.8). The Services PMI ticked lower to 55.9 from 56.2. Further fuelling slowdown suspicions last week, the German Ifo Business climate indicator fell to 91.7 in May from 93.6 in April. The fall was the index’s first monthly decline in six months. Expectations for the coming months were also more pessimistic, falling to 88.6 from 91.7 in April. UK's strong growth marred by stubborn inflation In the UK, activity this year has been stronger than most expected, supported by falling energy prices, a robust labour market and an elevated savings rate. However, while growth has been stronger than expected, so has inflation. Last week, headline inflation fell to 8.7% YoY in April, significantly stronger than the fall to 8.2% expected. The core rate, which excludes food and energy, jumped to 6.8%, the highest since March 1992 and above well forecasts of 6.2%. The UK rates market is now pricing four more 25bp rate hikes from the BoE for a terminal rate of 5.50% by year-end. DAX technical analysis Weaker than expected Euro Area data and debt ceiling concerns saw the DAX retreat from its all-time 16,375 high last week towards the key 15,700 support level (coming from the highs in February and March and uptrend support from the October 11,829 low). While the DAX holds above support at 15,700, a retest and break of recent highs is possible. However, should the DAX see a sustained break of support at 15,700, a deeper decline is expected to unfold towards year-to-date lows and the 200-day moving average 14,600/500 area. DAX daily chart   Source: TradingView FTSE technical analysis The release of stubbornly high inflation data last week on top of debt ceiling concerns saw the FTSE pullback toward the 200-day moving average at 7526. While the FTSE remains above 7526, a rebound towards the resistance 7800/7900 area is possible. However, should the FTSE see a sustained break of the 200-day moving average at 7526, a deeper decline is expected towards support at 7300/7200, coming from year-to-date lows.
