"UK’s trade balance shifts heavily into surplus. Good news you say. Until you look at the export numbers. They are sharply down -> Just imagine what is happening to domestic demand for imports to fall by enough to produce that net surplus!"

 

Welcome to your self inflicted recession.

Yes, the UK will be an independent 'powerhouse' after it leaves the EU.  Because we produce, like, so much stuff that the world wants :D

It'll get worse when the UK is divorced from the EU and the foreigners are sent away :(

I guess the next big thing will be the realization that shops, buses, trains etc. actually need a certain volume of paying customers to make a profit and stay in business rather than the slow trickle of an old man's prostrate currently allowed under the distancing measures. I saw someone refused entry to a bus yesterday because it was 'full'. It had four people on it.

So long as these ridiculous restrictions are in place the government has a duty to provide subsidies.  How can we expect businesses to stay afloat under these conditions?  It's worse in America where millions of unemployed are already lining up at the soup kitchens.  I'm surprised more cities aren't burning down there (well I guess the police and the army are pretty f*king brutal there)

The cities are not burning because of the lockdown, the lockdown was by bipartisan agreement, the Dems wanted a harder and longer lockdown.

Short investigative news report from Australia (7 min, dated 15/08/20) looking at Sweden's no lockdown policy and Switzerland's approach to the use of HCQ.

History to 'vindicate Swedish COVID-19 strategy'

Is that the same Sky 'News' that is putting out propaganda about police in Oldham needing 'more money' because they're so busy enforcing mask wearing (but only in areas that are predominantly white lol)

Britain on Monday urged elderly people and volunteers from Black and Asian minority groups to sign up to a COVID-19 vaccine trial registry to boost efforts to find a working vaccine against the disease that offers protection against higher risk groups.

'Detect remnants' of the disease from July from someone has fully recovered?

Hugely confusing.  Let's 'trust the experts' :D

Govt rejected the experts (immunologists) and science right at the start when they choose instead to listen to cunjouring artist Ferguson and his magical mystery models.

Great stuff, Casey, you're spot on in your view that C19 is the biggest load of BS this century. I'm a Paramedic and have been telling anyone who would listen (and there weren't many!) that the real illness affecting the world was MPI or Mass Psychogenic Illness and NOT C19.

I've worked during this 'pandemic' and have yet to see any evidence that C19 is a deadly killer though still the vast majority of the medical profession is convinced that C19 is deadly, a grave danger to public health and we've only escaped by the skin of our teeth due to the heroics of the scientists,doctors and politicians.

The REAL scandal is yet to come however, and that is how the doctors are going to explain the deaths that we're caused in the ICU's in the early days of the panic. They'll swear blind that the deaths were caused by the lethality of C19 when the truth, in my opinion, is that in their panic and hysteria they put anyone who so much as coughed into an induced coma and killed them by ventilating them unnecessarily.

You might be interested in the ICNARC report on ICU addmissions in April (https://www.icnarc.org/DataServices/Attachments/Download/c5a62b13-6486-ea11-9125-00505601089b) which clearly shows that a generally younger and healthier group of C19 patients had a whopping 50.7% death rate compared to an older and unhealthier group of flu patients in 2017-19 who had a death rate of 22%. They question is WHY did these people die at such a high rate for an illness that has very similar overall mortality rate to flu outside of the ICU's?

 I did also put my money where my mouth was and I stuck any money I could get my hands on into the stock market (via IG of course) around April 6th knowing that the market would realise that the C19 emperor had no clothes and shoot back up and very glad I did as I'm up something like 40% today.

All the best, Paramaniac

Thank you, I started this thread in March but had been posting the data (in random threads) that was coming out of Asian countries since mid Feb and what was being predicted for the UK just didn't add up. Managed misinformation ever since.

IBD still saying 'confirmed uptrend'. They called an uptrend on April 6th and I use them for timing tops and bottoms but I am cutting some of my more profitable positions.

 Singing is no more risky than speaking when it comes to the possibility of spreading the new coronavirus, British scientists said on Thursday, adding that volume is the most important risk factor.

Don't worry, I have never traded UK stocks, I only trade US stocks. The UK has never produced an Amazon, facebook, Microsoft or Tesla and probably never will do.

What's the position on farting (apart from bent over with a grimace). These are the serious questions that have to be answered. Do I have to wear an **** mask?

Of course now that we know laughing and singing are so deadly dangerous the govt must implement mandatory mask wearing at all times asap, in spite of the fact the govt told us just a few weeks ago that masks were of no benefit at all. 😳

Look, just do as you're told, we're trying to save lives here. 😆

Next week the govt says eyes and ears must also be covered, see even Biden gets it. 👀
