Two communiques here purportedly from the police but I'm assured one is genuine and one is fake, the problem is I can't tell which is which.

That's all window-dressing.

Don't worry, the cops are as bent and racist as ever :D

Funny how full employment is both the last stage of the economic recovery, and the first thing to go when the next crash comes.  Seems like life is just a never-ending cycle of boom and bust, but it's 90% bust and 10% boom.

Keep going though eh.  

And don't even think of being able to participate in the stock market gains.  It ain't for the little people.  Just ask all those rich politicians.  :D

A truly socialist state would put millions of people to work in short order.  China put 10 million to work within months during the financial crash.

Full-blooded, Stalinist socialism is the answer.

Oh right, was that the time when Mao ordered the eradication of flys in China that diverted people from food production and lead to the starvation of millions, or the time when Mao ordered that every village produce steel that diverted people from food production and lead to the starvation of millions?

Any long term chart will clearly show it's more like 90% boom and 10% bust which is why it all works so well.

This is flying around twitter this morning, note the Covid mortality rates, not exactly a pandemic of biblical proportions. Someone has also helpfully highlighted Republican vs Democrat controlled states.

Meanwhile Sweden continues to build herd immunity with no lockdown so no second spike expected as there is for the lockdown countries once peeps are released, and look, mortality rates inline with the rest. 

The lockdown has been a total waste of time, has not saved lives and has totally destroyed the economy. 🥳

Sunak said on Friday that Britain was facing a “very serious economic crisis” and jobs would be lost in the “days, weeks and months to come”.

Not his one though, obviously.

Reminds me of BoJo the plonker's admonition that people must be prepared to lose their loved ones.  Fortunately the nation didn't lose him, oh what a boon!

Didn't the Tories also exploit the misery around the introduction of Universal Credit to try and get more people sanctioned and payments delayed - causing a spike in suicides?

That's the Tory way!  I wonder how many will be killing themselves over the next year or two.  (If it saves money it's good - the Conservatives)

R figures  for the UK and Sweden (It's the number of people that one infected person will pass the virus on to, on average), UK still in lockdown and the economy destroyed, Sweden no lockdown at all.

Can you see much difference? No neither can I.

Plus the latest update of the deaths per millions (23 May). I've added Belgium who went into lock down very early in the pandemic (as is noted in earlier posts in the thread).

 The models govts used to justify the lockdown strategy wildly exaggerated the risk while the early empirical data that was ignored was correct as were the epidemiologists who predicted a mortality rate of only around 0.01% - 0.1% (see previous posts above).

And from Oxford University;

"Asked what her updated estimate for the Infection Fatality Rate is, Professor Gupta says, “I think that the epidemic has largely come and is on its way out in this country so I think it would be definitely less than 1 in 1000 and probably closer to 1 in 10,000.” That would be somewhere between 0.1% and 0.01%."

Covid-19 has confounded the expectations of doctors. Patients suffer from a bewildering variety of complications. They urinate blood, complain of heartburn and lose their sense of smell and taste. A 56-year-old man in a Beijing Hospital developed brain inflammation; his face began to twitch and he hiccuped uncontrollably. A 71-year-old woman, returning to the US from Egypt, developed back pain, vomiting and **** diarrhoea.

People are waking up to the fact the lockdown was never needed and the finger pointing has begun, this from the UK last week,

'Work+Pensions Sec Therese Coffey explicitly blames scientists for mistakes in govt covid response: 'If the science + advice at the time was wrong, I'm not surprised if people think we made the wrong decision'. Something for Sage group scientists to ponder when they meet today...'

And this a few days ago from Denmark,

'Denmark's Prime Minister tries to pin the lockdown on the country's health agency, aka "guided by science and experts". Ends up, Denmark's health agency did not recommend draconian measures - the politicians did.'

    • Start the conversation The US election is scheduled for Tuesday 3 November 2020, when all 50 states and Washington DC will cast their votes. The vote spans six different time zones, so the first exit polls will be available at around 11pm (EST) when West Coast voting closes. In the UK, that will be around 4am (GMT) on Wednesday 4 November 2020. The election is likely to create opportunities for traders, with price movements expected across a range of forex pairs, indices and commodities in the run-up to polling day. Volatility related to the election could continue until congress certifies the result on Wednesday 6 January 2021, or even until the winner is inaugurated on Wednesday 20 January 2021. What should traders expect to see during the US election? All US markets tend to experience increased volatility in the run up to a presidential election, including USD forex pairs, indices and commodities. That’s because many investors will attempt to lock in positions before the result is announced – using polls to gauge public sentiment. The aim is to take full advantage of the price moves that occur when the country’s political direction is confirmed. At the top level, early indications suggest that the following could be on the cards if one of these two main candidates win: Donald Trump A Trump win could see an escalation of the trade war, potentially causing problems for some US exporters and having a negative impact on the value of the dollar. However, this effect could be offset by reassurances that tax cuts and deregulation will continue – boosting the US economy. Joe Biden A Biden win could see tensions in the trade war cool, providing a boost to US exporters and the dollar. However, these effects could be offset by tax increases for high-income households, and more limited deregulation.   How will markets react to the different candidates? Market commentary by IG Senior Market Analyst Joshua Mahony Stocks Markets hate uncertainty, and historically the perception has been that a new president might bring policies that could be harmful for stocks. This happened in 2016 when analysts were confident that a Trump presidency would spark a market collapse. But, we are now seeing that same fear creep in as people consider a Biden presidency and the potential uncertainty it could cause. Biden is openly more left-leaning, and his policies are expected to be geared towards human needs rather than those of investors and traders. This sentiment isn’t helped by suggestions that Biden would reverse Trump’s tax cuts, and it is likely that markets will rise alongside the potentially increased chance of a Trump victory as we approach the election. USD The value of a currency is supposed to reflect the health of an economy and its future prospects. Many are expecting Biden to be less focused on the markets than his Republican opponent, so the dollar could weaken in the event of a Biden victory. However, this effect could be offset if Biden is able to improve relations between the US and China after years of market anxiety. In this scenario, it would be the Chinese yuan which may benefit the most, with the trade war having sparked huge upside for USD/CNH. Keep in mind that if the wider markets fall on a Biden victory – including US stocks and indices – the dollar would likely rally in the short-term to reflect a risk-off move as investors turn to USD. Gold The prospect of a more expansive fiscal policy under Biden, and from a government which is happy to embark on substantial spending programmes, could provide a boost to precious metals. There’s a caveat here too, because in the past precious metals have also followed the same patterns as the stock markets during times of crisis. So, any collapse in equity markets that may come from a change at the White House could drag gold lower in the immediate period. Plus, while Trump has finally seen the kind of stimulus he would have hoped for, a Biden win could result in a more substantial stimulus package if the Democrats gain a foothold in Congress.   How are you trading?
