Leaked documents show that hospitals in the North West are at a critical level after the recent upsurge in coronavirus ,

How much are they trying to hide from us !

Sooner or later we are due a crash in house prices as it's been out of control for decades now, there's a fundamental problem when people on average wages cannot afford to buy a house.... History shows us that what has gone up can also come down but don't expect massive drops in value....

https://www.economicshelp.org/blog/5709/housing/market/

TBH if we had a crash in prices and it took say 5 years for it to recover ( this could actually happen with Covid and Brexit and mass unemployment...) then the vast majority of us will not be affected in any bad way. There's a few exceptions obviously. If your selling then the next house you buy will also be reduced so that's not a problem, if your in it for short term profit then you will lose out but then again you knew the risks.

But it's not really a problem at all for the vast majority.

Don't recall saying it was a market crash.

But if £10,000 quid is no worry to you I'll gladly take it off your hands...

Theyíre just about to raze the Elephant & Castle shopping centre to the ground and gentrify yet another part of London so anywhere in Southwark would be worth a pretty penny or two!
Of course a lot depends on where we go with the dreaded virus but I suspect or hope in a couple of years weíll all be talking about it in the past tense ( until the next one😩 ) and the recovery will begin in earnest with exponential growth, thatís possibly capitalismís Achilles heel, growth growth and yet more growth and guess who gets rich? or should I say richer...... The rich of course!😜
You canít take it with you guys!

Remember that biblical quote that itís easier to thread a camel through the eye of a needle than it is for a rich man to enter the kingdom of god....... and thats coming from an avowed atheist!

Hey fishie. I'm good thanks mate. Hope you and yours are all good too.

I think you've hit the nail on the head with that. Houses in cities and Northern towns will sell at a reduced price and the more rural stuff will be in demand.

My mate accepted an offer on his London flat ages back. It was all put on hold while the lockdown and stuff took over. The same buyer then said they wanted 10 grand off the price to go through with the sale...

A closer look at the supposed booming housing market shows a lot of properties reduced by thousands. ..

When so many people are facing unemployment the property market can't be immune

I recall reading somewhere that the number of infections during the initial wave was probably at or around 100,000 infections a day which is why we had so many deaths, so the figures recently are nowhere near as bad.

That does not mean we don't need to suppress it though to protect the NHS.



It's still the 16-29 year old age group that is fuelling the rise in infections that is spreading into older age groups.
https://news.sky.com/story/coronavirus-regional-heat-maps-reveal-how-covid-19-is-creeping-up-into-older-age-groups-12102505


Sorry but the infected young adults need to accept that people are dying as a consequence of their selfish actions ignoring the simple guidance and precautions required. The same goes for older people doing the same like that SNP politician - she should be sacked already for gross misconduct.

Yes but just think how much their money could boost the economy if say 1 million die , not to mention the funeral parlors and flower shops and the amount of houses that will be on the market , win win ! as Dominic and Boris would say !

Dominic , remember him , snide cu** sidekick to di** head Boris , the puppet master is keeping his head down !

It could be because contracting the virus and dying don't necessarily happen in the same 24 hour period...

Not that I'm an expert of course...

Number of cases rises

Number of hospital admissions rises

Number of deaths rises

Oh and mp's pay rises of course

That's because there have been worse or comparable years (Asian Flu 1957, Hong Kong Flu 1968 for example) previous to that but then that wouldn't fit the narrative so they only mention the last 5

EDIT: But then there is this take in the BMJ on the 2018 Flu season LINK

I'm expecting a full lockdown to coincide with school half term...

Less disruption that way. From the directives we are getting at school, it feels like there's something imminent.

I don't think that's the proposal in the link Chuffy posted. It's let the ones at low risk crack on. How that would work practically, who knows.

I think we are hitting a pinch point, do we or donít we

I just canít see it going away. Total country lockdown for one month but unless we close our boarders, pointless

Let people just get on with it, not good, but we are out of options for me

We need to get business running and people back working for me otherwise the outcome could be catastrophic for our country

Itís because in cases as one of my dads clients had, her uncle died of his terminal illness. Tested negative numerous times for covid and the death certificate says his death was covid related.

Government preparing for winter ,

As we head in to winter watch death statistic manipulation go into overdrive, check out this ďMedical PractitionersĒ guidance on death provisions.


Did you know that the UK Government have removed Form 5 of the Cremation Certificate for deaths relating to Covid-19 under the Coronavirus Act which is the form that the relative who registers the death must be given as it enables them to see and query the death certificate before cremation.


So basically if your loved one dies of or with Covid19 they can have their death certified and cremation certified by the same medical practitioner and sent for cremation within hours and the government have removed your right to see or query that decision before the cremation takes place which in turn removes your right to request a coroners report or second opinion.


Why would they do this? And the removal notice of Form 5 doesnít explain what the section thatís been removed is actually for. I had to search the internet for older cremation forms to find out what Form 5 was used for. That information was nowhere on the UK Government website.


The order in which the comorbidities are listed determines how the death appears in the statistics and if the patient just happens to test positive without symptoms then it should not be listed in the cause of death at all. Neither ďof Covid19Ē or ďwith Covid19Ē should be used at allÖ.. the scam is bigger than you know.

The incubation period throws a real grey area over it all. My daughters friend, her mother had a test and was positive. Two days later, daughter tested negative. Told her to go back in another 3 days for a retest!

The legal requirement for the sale of cbd oil in the uk is that it contains no more than 0.2 % thc , as long as it contains less than this then you can drive after consuming !

Hydrogen peroxide in an emergency or a fatty food like pizza if you have a few hours could beat a swab test , but you would have to be a bit of a politician to drive under the influence of thc , i can only just find my bed !

CBD oil has little effect on helping me sleep , i bought it to help stave off infections whilst i was helping someone through chemo ,it knocks my mate out though , after around 1 hour .

the other one guarantees a good nights sleep , thats if you can stop laughing , you have to be so careful regarding doseage , half a grain of rice , also if you get swabbed when the police stop you , you could be over the permitted amount and get a ban ,
so im told

Your talking CBD oil with the thc taken out , cannabis oil with the active thc is thick stuff like tar and is around £20 per ml i bought my first bottle of cbd oil around 4 years ago , many good properties in both for your health , a shame big pharma have done all they could to bury it since around the prohibition era in America !

Not all what itís made out to be. We have some. Tried it a couple of times, first time I thought i was getting a proper buzz, top lip went up and I started laughing Slept well though! Full dropper

Last night I only had a couple of drops, under the tongue, horrible stuff, tasted like I had eaten a bud lol, i was up at stupid o clock too I had a few beers though, not ideal I suppose

£90 a bottle, probably cheaper to source the real deal

Just for you chuffy ,

Private capital tends to become concentrated in few handsÖ The result of these developments is an oligarchy of private capital the enormous power of which cannot be effectively checked even by a democratically organized political society. This is true since the members of legislative bodies are selected by political parties, largely financed or otherwise influenced by private capitalists who, for all practical purposes, separate the electorate from the legislature. The consequence is that the representatives of the people do not in fact sufficiently protect the interests of the underprivileged sections of the population. Moreover, under existing conditions, private capitalists inevitably control, directly or indirectly, the main sources of information (press, radio, education). It is thus extremely difficult, and indeed in most cases quite impossible, for the individual citizen to come to objective conclusions and to make intelligent use of his political rights.

But if it was right-wing bull**** it would agree with our gov's actions, no, and the fact that you then support an article by someone (Nick Cohen) who has repeatedly supported military action in the Middle East and who The Muslim Council of Britain has described as "being in the vanguard of Islamophobia in this country". We are supposed to take his opinion as being more reliable, yes?

Chuffy , Wayne etc

Check your news sources , or bullshi* sources , they will be linked back to right wing million , billionaires who have an agenda and pay vast sums of money to manipulate people like you , Sweden and other Nordic countries have taken steps against this type of manipulation , its even taught in schools and so they have the least corrupt political system which in turn results in people listening and trusting the majority of what their leaders tell them .

So to sum it up , you've had your pants pulled down , it's not too late lads , if you have netflix watch the "social dilema " from the mouths of the people who did it , straight from their moosh , as Wayne would say !

In fact , it's becoming soooooo obvious even you Wayne must have some alarm bells going off !

Yeah...

Thing is you posted regularly on here about how you were ignoring the restrictions to go fishing so....


Let's call it a fair assumption eh?

Unless your Trump filter is set to absolute denial of what you did just like the man himself of course...

Yes you saw some teenagers hanging about. But surely you're not the type to judge a whole section of society on the actions of a minority.

As for Trump and the kfc - maybe he figured that chlorine is like bleach so he's on a covid battling health kick?

The lock down did apply to teenagers and 20 somethings

Schools were closed first. That's where most teenagers spend most of their day.

Assuming everyone ignored it like you is probably not your best point of argument there.

It's not flu. It's more serious. If we hadn't locked down figures would be higher. If we'd locked down sooner or more effectively they'd likely be less.

It is apparent that figures are being manipulated up and down in different countries, regions, industries etc for a set of different agendas. We shouldn't be surprised but we should be questioning.

Yes, they had symptoms. I will reword it Wayne, from booking the test they were in and tested within 24 hours so when people were saying getting a test is impossible, not so our way

I will say one thing, it causes just total confusion for people. 5 day incubation period, do I come to work or not, crackers!

OK. ... so I've been told this one today. No idea if true but the person who told me had no reason to lie...

3 different people in Bolton signed up for tests. One just didn't go one went but couldn't be bothered waiting in the big queue. The third had a poorly kid (not covid) so didn't go.

3 people. No test carried out.

All 3 received messages saying they had tested positive.

Bolton closed down due to the high number of positive cases. But if this is true then wtf?

A cynic might look at all of this and think...

They've got the old folk scared and locked in.
They've got the 18-24 year olds locked in halls of residence.
They've got the North under lockdowns
They've got Wales almost under total control
They've got the low earners stuck in their garden less homes
They got the office workers comfy at home in a false sense of security
They got the self employed on the breadline
They've got the employed dependent on handouts
They've got the arts silenced (too many subversives)
They've got everyone inside by 10.30

Now that everyone is so fed up, they can offer the slightest reward, the tiniest carrot, Christmas with 8 people, 1000 fans at a football match, the pub open until 10.30..... and they'll be forgiven for all the f ups, the shambles of brexit, the education system in disarray, the droves of nurses leaving the profession.

And while everyone is looking the other way they can push through more powers for the police (stop and search powers being expanded imminently), break international law, screw over the Irish, bring in more right wing policy, give contracts to friends and advisors....

Good job I'm not cynical isn't it?

Certainly looking like unis wanting their fees, landlords wanting their rents, and govt wanting someone to blame this month's ****-up on.

Agreed.

The big universities have encouraged thousands of young adults to travel from their homes - regardless of where that might be, (high risk areas or not) to fill up halls of residence for financial reasons. Nine grand (minimum) a year per student in fees. Plus the rent being charged for accommodation. And most classes being taught online....

I was listening to two students at Manchester Met on the radio last night and they were effectively locked in with no proper support, security refusing to come into the building to sort out idiots, two week lockdown with no system sorted for them to even get food apart from delivery with no slots available. They'd been actively encouraged to return when they could easily have accessed their lectures from home. All down to the higher education sector needing their money.

I'm not saying that the universities are all bad, just that they are businesses who need the students and the income they generate to survive. Same as your big stores or pub food chain.

Again, poor planning for something that was a known upcoming high risk factor. The financial aspect overrides the health aspect. That's the daily decision being faced in every area right now. Blaming one set of people - in this case, the students - just isn't fair or intelligent. It's easy and lazy finger pointing.

Idiots take all forms. My nephew has been working from home since March. Been back in the office for 2 weeks, tested positive yesterday for Covid-19.

There was a program on Sheffield Hallam Uni the other day. 35 years ago the was 46,000 steel workers in the city and 5,000 students. 2020 there's 60,000 students and 5,000 steel workers. These uni cities can't survive without students arriving. So why the **** weren't universities given staggered start times with mobile testing centers at the University? Numbers like 60,000 arriving from all over the world into a cramped environment without testing is a joke. To blame just the students is wrong in my view.

Trouble is the idiots don't just bring it on themselves but on everyone else who has to live and work there. From other students through to teaching staff, admin staff, the cleaners who have to do double shifts to manage the extra covid requirements ....

A microcosm for society over the last 6th months. A small number of idiots who think they know better selfishly messing thing up for everyone else.

Panic buying again? Stupid idiots...

While the subject is on idiots I'd like to say to every stupid young adult in uni that's now locked down due them going out partying and ignoring guidance that they have nobody to blame but themselves for contracting Covid and stop moaning about how stressed you are..... they brought this on themselves and now they can live with the consequences of their actions. Time to grow up.....

Well found this

As a benchmark, you can expect to make around $1.50 per 1,000 views (about £1.10 per 1,000 views, at the time of writing). This means that one million views equals $1500... or around £1,100 to us British folk.

but because it's on YouTube it must be ********, really?

I don't think this is the case, but you can't deny that if it's on Youtube it might be ****.

There is no editorial control, no comeback, and no real scrutiny of what people put up. The 'main stream media' are duty bound to carry out these controls. Excluding them as a source of news seems a bit odd.

Separating the wheat from the chaff on YT is hard work, and not something everyone has the time or inclination to do, so you either watch stuff you agree with, or dismiss opposing views as cobblers. I'd give much more consideration to an opposing point of view, whatever the subject, if I saw it on Newsnight, for example, rather than YT because I would assume that Newsnight journalists have done some work to make sure it's someone worth listening to.

Btw, doctors aren't infallible. It was Dr Andrew Wakefield who kicked off the whole anti-vax MMR thing.

As far as incomes go, didn't the bloke shocked by the low number of under 20s dying etc etc have a 'Go Fund Me' banner at the bottom while he was prattling on?

That's another thing I should have added to my earlier post about the divisions, its seems you can also have a totally rational person analysing the situation (and there are many including many Doctors) using available facts and figures to point out the bleeding obvious (to some) but because it's on YouTube it must be ********, really?

The bloke I was referring to was the man in the video, not you

Are you convinced it's entirely healthy to just get info from Youtube and the likes?

It's the digital age equivalent of refusing to read newspapers and getting all your information from what's written on bus shelters and toilet doors a few years ago.

The point of the age differential in severe and quite often deadly cases of covid-19 is obviously valid and well known. The issue is what do you do about it without a vaccine? The only game in town, was and still is test the granny out of it, with an effective and rapid track and trace system, if we wanted to open society and business up fully for all. We haven't been able to do that despite all the hyperbolic cobbler's from the government. I'm not a fan of locking millions of British people away indefinitely so the rest can crack on. But I can understand others views that are suffering financially or in other ways that might want to go down that route.

It does seem that there has been a divide created now. You either have to be a full on Covid-head, accepting everything that is thrown at you however ridiculous, while hiding under the stairs in a deep sea diving suit, bleaching your shopping etc etc and if you are not that then you MUST BE a conspiracy theorist, the virus is a hoax, 5G blah blah blah.
Well what about the middle ground, you know, yes the virus is real we know that but all this has been a massive over reaction (thanks again Ferguson, he's gone quiet hasn't he) that has ****ed up the entire economy when all that really needed to be done was shield the vulnerable while the rest get on with it, there are a huge swathe of the population who fit into that category but mainly the two extremes are all you get force fed. Unfortunately, no government has got the balls to admit they may have got it wrong, it's too late now. In fact the governments initial response was actually probably the sensible one but they panicked.

I am not saying anything about a conspiracy, or suggesting one, rather suggesting the country is in panic and the media is helping causing that panic.

I was trying to make clear the true and correct death figures and the ages of those people that have died, and are dying and the very large number of them already had a health condition (my mother-in-law was one of them). Not what I think but the figures of the Office for National Statistics

This is still being called a pandemic, people cant go to work, people are loosing their jobs, businesses are going out of business (more job losses) no entrainment outside your home, some have not been out since March! (and you cant get the virus before 10pm in a pub....really!)

However when on average 450 a day die of a heart attack in the UK it kind of puts the death rate of the virus very small and last weeks death rate of 1% is tiny.
More people per week will die this winter from flu and most of the deaths will be older than 65 Between 12,000 and 30,000 this winter, yes this winter so again it puts last weeks death rate of the virus at 1% very small.......and the flu wont be called a pandemic!

The government have already borrowed 2 trilling pounds. I have no idea what 2 trilling pounds looks like but I do know it sounds one hell of a lot of money and it has to be paid back.....and paid back by us!

Early on in the lockdown the BBC were giving the 'official' government figures and the ONS figures with the latter showing higher numbers.

So I ask as to why with last weeks deaths due to the virus was only 1% (thats 99% died not from the virus) why is England gone on another lock down?
Pubs have to close at 10pm. So am I right in thinking you can\could only catch the virus after 10pm in a pub?

Yep , when analyzed the figures do seem strange , the percentage of deaths for those over 80 does shoot up though also the amount of hospital care needed creates problems , thats why they were sacrificed !

Don't expect any rational decisions made by Boris or his puppet master , a populist leader who makes off the cuff decisions , the majority of which go ti** up

Did you watch the video because clearly you failed to take in the information given in the video. It is NOT about how many have had the virus or how many have got it. Its about the number of DEATHS, the age groups and if they died of the virus.
Last weeks deaths in England dying of the virus was 1% = 99% of the deaths in England did NOT die of the virus.

Have massively increased stock of ppe

Hoover and Dyson have made thousands of ventilators , hmmm !

As Sunaks furlough schemes near end of life looks like we're going to the follow the Germans and French with a "Kurzarbeit" replacement. Not a lot of other options available to avoid mass unemployment now the situation is getting worse again.

The results so far regarding Sweden and it's closest Nordic neighbors suggest that Sweden is fairing worse than Norway Finland and Denmark , but it's far from over , they act responsibly as nation's though and have leaders they can trust in ,a world apart from us in the UK , they had a semi lockdown in Sweden , they had a plan and they stuck to it , not much point having a herd immunity strategy for 2 weeks as we did

The deaths per 100,000 of population are still very close between Sweden and the UK. Swedenís neighbours with similar population density have fared much better and it looks like only 20-30% of the population have had the virus which is a very long way from what would be needed for herd immunity even if that is possible by exposure. Other European countries fared better than Sweden with a lockdown and it is not as if Sweden saved their economy either.

There was a joke going round Stockholm when the social distancing rule was introduced that went along the lines of ď2 metres, why so close?Ē

Between the lines

Have to agree Mal, it does seem a ridiculous idea when we canít even organise testing. Practically unenforceable with the manpower at their disposal and only really likely to increase tensions between a nation already at each otherís throats.
Sadiq can **** off too, trying to promote a London wide lockdown. Easy to say when you can earn your crust on your arse at home.
Can see a peasantís revolt on the horizon

From what Iíve read herd immunity isnít going to happen without a vaccine or a huge death toll. And with the anti-vaxxers spreading their nonsense that already difficult task will be near impossible.

As John McDonnell said, ĎWe can revive an economy, we cannot resurrect the dead.í

I think we have got to the point where most things are going to be pretty pointless

Trillions paid in furlough seem like a complete waste now. A lot of ignorant ****s have simply not taken this serious enough and now we are bringing out tough fines, should have been at the start for me.

Heard immunity is the one for me. Protect the vulnerable and let everybody else crack on otherwise we will just be going round and round for years! Protect the economy, priority number 1, take a hit, let the idiots get on with it. Letís get people back to work.

And even after this, letís not forget visitors to our shores. 2 week quarantine for all, has to be, otherwise unless we get a vaccine it will certainly float around for years!

There will be so many people who, as you say, will be forced to carry on working because they can't afford not to. And the great plan? Give them a whopping fine if they break the rules.

There was a student who got a big fine a couple of weeks back for a house party. Meanwhile just down the road my local brewers fayre pub is packed to the rafters with no visible signs of distancing and nobody asked to sign in....

I'm not condoning the idiot behaviour of individuals but this is just another crap scheme from out of touch politicians

So new regulations coming in to enforce fines up to 10 grand if you are unfortunate enough to be one of very few track & traced, the possibility of a £500 one off payment that wonít cover most peopleís rent for a fortnight, not in London thatís for sure.. A test would negate the need to isolate but itís impossible to get one
I donít see who theyíll use or how they plan to enforce this because people donít appear to give a **** round here about government advice or laws, I certainly wonít be isolating if Iím not unwell because I simply couldnít afford to.
I know thatís selfish but my family eating and having a place to live comes before everything else.
I wouldnít knowingly take Covid into the community but if health services canít provide a test for those showing no symptoms they leave people who live hand to mouth with no alternative than to flout the rules

Wandsworth didn't really have a choice but remove the dopey cones, as it left no room for emergency services, no ambulances could get to one of the busiest hospitals in the country

Along with Hammersmith and vauxhall bridges closed and Wandsworth Bridge at half capacity its been a frustrating few weeks traffic wise!

Hope all are ok in both houses fellas

Return to school always comes with sniffles and bugs with tiredness and general run down low immunity - coupled with covid there'll always be the extra worry and being cautious is the best option

We've had really good attendance overall but you can see that parents are not taking any chances - rightly so.

They say it's Corona related but I don't know anyone who believes it, it makes no sense.
Common belief is it was an excuse to get it through without proper consultation.
Consultation did start early this year, my missus managed to get into a very packed meeting hall for a meeting that didn't go at all well for the councillors, they were crucified so the belief is to save them grief they got it through using covid as an excuse. No one believes it's a coincidence that the councillors (who are non drivers) selected their roads to form the nucleus of the main LTN. which by the way is a wealthy area so their traffic is shifted to the poorer area just outside

Like the terrible father I am I followed the advice when faced with an asthmatic wife and son both with a fever, a new cough and a loss of taste and smell. I have just given up trying for a test as it has been five days now and it is too late for the antigen one. So now I still have to isolate for the next nine days as without a test result we just donít know. Both are thankfully out of bed and on the mend, the GP chucked some steroids at them via a telephone consult and a course of antibiotics to rule out a chest infection in the boy but apart from that said follow the advice.

Itís corona-related though Bob, they brought them in because of the need to widen pavements among other things. I have to admit I didnít mind them at first, even though it took Waze a while to list them and had to do a few u-turns in my usual short-cuts around Catford and Lewisham. My regular journey to work is about 16 miles across South London and has doubled in time since early summer despite leaving earlier and earlier in the morning. Iím going back using the train most days.

Some proper consultation and modelling needs to be done before such wholesale changes, especially in areas away from high streets with heavy footfall. Traffic does need to be managed better and pollution decreased but this isnít the way to do it. At least Khan hasnít been out to the air quality sensors with the sprinklers.

And yes, whole family had every Covid symptom this past week with the addition of a snotty nose.. the GP was happy to see our lad because of the runny nose and prescribed antibiotics, so as chuffy says other illnesses are available.
I caught it originally from a Trump supporting US immigrant at work, so I feared the worse as soon as my throat was tickling

Government says make London cleaner, less pollution less reliance on cars.
Mayor takes the cash gives it to the councils and says do the above
Councils grab the money spend it as quickly as possible, implement LTN (Low Traffic Neighbourhoods) schemes in their own boroughs without consulting other boroughs. Virtually all LTN's in all boroughs cause gridlock.
Carnage and I don't use the word lightly ensures.
Apart from Wandsworth who back down the other councils announce it as a success backed by their Twitter feed fan clubs.
Other Londoners organise petitions, marches, posters etc etc. Then those who hold jobs through elections and who are out of touch wake up in the last few days and start to think about ways of both trying to safe face and their own arses, meanwhile the majority who are so thoroughly pissed off find as many platforms to moan on including fishing forums.
To be honest I'm past blaming now we can deal with them later. just put everything back to where it was (not perfect)learn from the mistakes and start again.
Let's hope that some cheap secondhand traffic cameras become available soon.


OK back on topic who's got a sore throat, cough and a snotty nose, do you think you need a test and can you get one?

The LTN's have split communities into the have and have not, there have been motorist having punch ups over gridlock and when I say gridlock I mean all day car parks, local businesses robbed of trade due to road closures, people falling ill with fumes, I could go on but I'll stop now as this meant to be the corona thread but believe me I'm not exaggerating

Has Khan given millions of taxpayer's cash to mates for a bridge that never got built, or a cable car that no one used? Or similar?
It's a genuine question ... Seems Khan can do no right while Johnson could do no wrong in the eyes of many.

The reason Khan has seen hatred recently is to with LTN's (Low Traffic Neighbourhoods) great idea in theory but a major cock up and having the opposite effect with parts of London in gridlock and pollution through the roof .
I think he's finally realised and asked for them to be reassessed but it's until sorted(that's if it does get sorted) he and many others will be hated.

I don't see that as a problem if they are probably going to happen in a couple of weeks anyway... from my understanding of the news reports, that's exactly what happened in the north east where local officials requested the government action to try and head off the rise in cases.

He (Khan) seems to get a lot of hate. I'm not a London resident anymore so maybe I'm missing out on exactly why that is. Maybe he should get some bikes for inner city bankers to improve his popularity rating... (sarcasm emoji here)

I'm off out to enjoy the sunshine while I can. One thing being back at work full time has done is remind me that the weekend exists! Have a good day man

Predicted Mal? It's been said all along local lockdowns will happen when they are needed, That knob Khan has said it could happen in London.

My thoughts too.

But he doesn't let the criticism stop him. He's already told his kids that even though they will be very well looked after, the majority of his estate will go into his charity foundation when he dies. Got to admire that. Giving back to the people who his success is built on.

I find society as a whole (in the wealthy countries ) is increasingly selfish. Aspiration is linked to possessions, big cars, big houses, lots of money for too many. Social media is too easily a platform for just showing off - look at my stuff, I'm on another holiday, look at my perfect life.... it's all pish compared to being a decent human being.

Not saying the two are mutually exclusive of course.

Back on thread topic, those new restrictions that I 'predicted' are here tinhead

Lots of plates spinning and furlough about to end brings a couple more to the mix.

Apparently gavin Williamson has suggested that schoolkids don't need to get a covid test. .. they can just get a predicted result from an algorithm ....

You're right about personalities. Some will give their last penny and Rolo to help others and others as you say wouldn't give you the **** of their arse.
Not all but many millionaires became rich by being mean and ruthless, if you want the **** of their arse you're going to have to pay for it.

I'm not in disagreement with you, the oppostie. Ultimatley they don't have to and we can't force them. Personally I would have thought most people who were filthy rich would donate something, even for tax purposes!

Tell you who should be donating and made to, the likes of Nike and the rest of the ****s who are exploiting people and pumping it all off shore but don't get me.going with those ****s

No one is taking away from them being successful but when youíve got so much money you literally can have everything, does one not think about the people who have nothing and want to help them?

Suppose itís in everyoneís personalities isnít it. You have people with hardly anything that will do everything than can to help people less fortunate than them, and people who have everything which will not give a toss about anyone else. I know which person Iíd rather knock about with.

Bill Gates does plenty to make the world a bit better, and look at the stick he gets for it. Albeit from idiots.

Edit: And if they are paying their taxes does that make them selfish or do we agree that they are successful?

Depends how many fish they catch.

I guess they could, I guess some do and some don't either. It's their choice at the end of the day. They dont owe anybody anything. They have created their success at the end of the day. Respect from me

They could always help the unfortunate or do good for the world with some of their money....Iím talking about the m(b)illionaires of course. Take Bezos for instance, when youíre earning $2000+ PER SECOND, you could not selfishly hoard billions of dollars, you could sort out problems in the world like child poverty, world hunger, the environment, etc.

Agree about the tax but if we are tackling that, letís fry the biggest fish of all, the companyís who are operating ďoffshoreĒ and taking the piss first

What about the others who have, by no fault of their own, got the ****ty end of the stick in the UK?

I was specifically talking about what I had seen on the news, abroad. But if you want to twist it around. There are options, get a job or they may need to relocate or retrain, or take one on a lower wage, skills based. What is it, 80% of all waiter jobs in the U.K. are now held by foreign workers. Wonder why that is? if you are unfortunate and not able to work there are benefits that come from taxpayers wages. Quite a good society that we live in. I can see why everybody wants to come here. Others get absolutely **** all!

If you've got 100k worth of cars sat outside your massive house and you fiddle your taxes then yes, I'd say you were a selfish git.

All I care about ultimately is my personal situation and my familyís. Does that sound selfish?

I couldn't possibly say. If you're jogging along getting by and paying what's due, then no, it doesn't sound selfish. If you've got 100k worth of cars sat outside your massive house and you fiddle your taxes then yes, I'd say you were a selfish git.

My lifestyle is dictated by the opportunities in this country. Believe it or not, amongst all the **** that goes off, I canít complain, especially when I look at others

So if you paid, say, 30k for a car, and it drove like a dog, you'd take it back to the dealer. The dealer would show you a film of some poor buggers who only had donkeys, old donkeys at that, and you'd skip out of the garage clicking your heels and counting yourself lucky?

Anybody watch the news?

Peru, 29,000 deaths, shanty towns, on their arses, very sad situation. Same as the African townships

I think this thread is typical of the bubble and the world we live in. Demanding this, that and the other, complaining about everything when some people have got absolutely nothing. Sad state of affairs, some people do simply not appreciate what we have got in this country
