20 mins in and confirms that he is a greedy capitalist scumbag who hides profit-seeking behind 'philanthropy' just like every other billionaire ... no surprises yet ... I thought you were in favour of capitalism?

 

I don't see anything 'sinister' in encouraging 'population control' in third world countries at all, either.  It's what they desperately need the most.

Very deep and profound.  But man, I don't know which is worse.  Unchecked population growth or having some kind of control over things.  I can't imagine a planet with 10 billion or more humans, rampant inequality and global warming will be very pleasant to live in :(

Well, calling it the wuflu is controversial, i think the WHO approved name should be used instead. I'm commenting rather late and i believe we all know better now. Covid-19 has affected the whole world economy immensely and the world is just taking step to recover. I do hope the recovery is fast enough and it doesn't lead to a deep recession

ok, so a few extra million is going to be a tipping point for you but you're not worried about being in semi lockdown until you are vaccinated and given a health certificate that will allow you to travel, gain employment etc 🤔

No, the lockdown affected the world's economy not the virus, as much of the data in the thread points out the lockdown was unnecessary and a complete over reaction.

As for the name I couldn't decide between Wuflu, or The Chinese flu, or the Wuhan Wet Market Food Emporium flu or the Wuhan Biochemical Weapons Facility flu so just went for Wuflu as it was shorter.

Billy G is a massive pr!ck but money talks (thanks capitalism).  Just don't underestimate the power of human resistance.  He tried to dominate the world of computers and the internet but he was stopped from doing so.  Windows is now largely a legacy product, most people don't need it and even businesses that rely on Microsoft Office for whatever reason can now get Office on non-Windows machines.

Nobody will miss Billy G when the c&nt dies.

yeah, he only made 50 billion in software, what a loser. Then he switched focus to become a philanthropist in the world health arena giving away most of his money and in the process turned his 50 billion into 100 billion, does this guy never tire of failure?

He's good at making money and you clearly admire him.  :(

He won't be successful in forcibly micro-chipping the world's population though ...

i don't admire him at all, the world's politicians are waiting for vaccine, that's why we are stuck in this dumb limbo, you will take the mandatory injection 'for the good of others' and because you won't be allowed to travel or work until you do. the 'health passport' will eventually be replaced by a chip because it will be more convenient which is a benefit for you.

New article updating Covid stats using NHS and ONS data to May 29 . Very much in line with the stats reproduced in this thread for the last 4 months.


Covid death rate as a percentage of population for people below the age of 45 is 0.003% (tabled as 0% see below).


Covid deaths for all ages together as a percentage of population is  0.08%.


So very much in line with the epidemiologist's predictions from months ago which were totally ignored, along with empirical data from Asian countries, by politicians who favoured hocus pocus Ferguson and is magical mystery models that were predicting deaths in the millions.


For comparison the first chart is the actual Covid deaths data for England and Wales, the second chart shows Ferguson's model predictions when applied to Sweden (no lockdown, with lockdown, and the reality). 

Sweden of course choose not to lockdown and so did not destroy their economy and make millions unemployed.

as was pointed out in this thread months ago you can't hide from a virus, it won't go away until there is herd immunity. There should never have been a lockdown in the first place, it has served no purpose.

'But didn't it save the NHS?' No. Hospitals were running at 50% capacity during the early April Covid peak, people were not turning up for appointments, A&E attendances were way down, new cancer diagnosis's were down from 30,000 a month to just 5,000 (cancer does not take holidays). People were just too scared to go to hospitals. 

There will likely be a second spike though not as severe as the first, this is why we are stuck in limbo watching the economy disappear. The markets were hoping for a quick recovery but the politicians are continuing to dither.

so continuing this real life farce we step from the absolute need for the 2 mt social distancing law (protests are exempt except protests against the social distancing law) to the face mask requirement law, see below the Govt info on the usefulness of face masks published previously, expect that to change soon.

HAHAHA, on the mandatory wearing of face masks ...

‘The lockdown is causing so many deaths’

Dr Malcolm Kendrick on the disastrous response to Covid-19.

Few would disagree that the UK’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic has been a shambles. We are now in the 14th week of a three-week lockdown and excess deaths are among the highest in Europe. But while the received wisdom is that lives could only have been saved by locking down harder, earlier and for longer, the benefits of lockdown remain unproven, while the costs of lockdown are starting to mount. Dr Malcolm Kendrick is a GP and author of Doctoring Data: How to Sort Out Medical Advice from Medical Nonsense. spiked caught up with him to get his take from the frontline.

    • 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?
