Welcome to Communist Britain :D

We feel bad for the Jewish population during Hitler's time. Yet we feel socially responsible when we are treated the same today. But don't worry, more rights will be eroded soon and we will be thankful for those measures.

The protocols have been activated ... the communist state is in full force :D

Remember!  It is your duty to protect the NHS, not the NHS duty to protect you :P

Don't really watch so much circus shows but heard Boris has gone back to hospital for more tests after he was tested positve before. More tests, more acting.

 

Sorry, the Oscar award for best actor does not go to him.

EU #ExitStrategy will be adopted tomorrow, a Commission spokesperson says. It follows Austria, Denmark and Croatia's adoption of their own national strategies yesterday. They did inform the EU beforehand, he says. Timeline sped up for fear of EU coordination being preempted.

Remember ... we need to be prepared to lose loved ones before their time.

And ... we are to show good-humoured British resolve.

So, no point worrying about the t*sser :)

The EU same as the WHO have done nothing to help, EU more concerned with signing up new countries than aiding Italy. Now that countries have started releasing their own timetable for ending lockdown the EU has decided it had better do something and so has been forced to devise a coordinated EU exit strategy.

What exactly do countries like Italy get out of EU membership?

I also read that the EU court has ruled Greece was unlawful in preventing asylum seekers coming in during the epidemic, so that will be another fine for a country already long under the cosh of international banksters.

Italians have spent the last 2 weeks filming themselves burning EU flags to post on SM.😳

I will not be surprised if the Italian government will soon have to put all the art collection plus the museum buildings as collateral to get loans. This is what they get for being stuck in the EU trap.

I have a new business idea for to be bankrupted citizens to earn a living. They could transition over to acting. They probabaly won't fake death but I am sure they can fake sickness lying in bed covered by a face mask. These roles will be in high demand.

I'm sure he would love having a tube inserted up his rectum.

can't be left behind and the early modelling projections, esp for the US, were way too dramatic, and besides people (and businesses) really are running out of money.

If I was a betting man, I'd still bet against a general 'reopening' before end of this month (April).  🤔

expecting a staged exit from lockdown starting some time soon after Easter eg as Austria announced yesterday.

"How will UK lockdown be lifted? (after the flattening of the infection rate curve)

There’s been no official advice or information on this but judging by the plan from across Europe it will be gradual."

"For example, Austria will be reopening small shops first, Denmark is encouraging ‘staggered working’ so not everyone will be suing public transport at one time and Germany will consider opening some restaurants if the contagion rate stays low."

    • It's times like in the attached image, Oct 18-dec 18. The FTSE saw declines over an extended period of time. If your view even over the short term eg days is that the market will recover the falls, in this case that isn't true. Basically I think I need to learn how to short, as long trading isn't always the right thing to do.
    • Hello Everyone, Quite the noobie question, but how exactly can I know how trusted and well intended and ICO is? I've been scouting a lot of them for quite some time and I've seen both sides of the coin. I've seen ICO's with good marketing and youtubers talking about it that just dissapeared after a few months, and I've seen ICO's with not as much publicity breaking the bar (ELROND for example). Any help would be appreciated. I would like it if we posted here our research and opinions so we can further examine ICO's if anyone else is into that stuff
    • I am very uncertain about this coin. If you have more info please post here, I am following
