I hope they don’t mind if I post just a small quote…
“The poorest look set to pay the highest price for lockdown hysteria: while half of people on £10 per hour face the sack, deprived areas in the North are predicted to be the worst hit by soaring joblessness. Meanwhile, in Italy, industrial jobs collapse and Spain’s endemic poverty spirals into an existential calamity. Such too is the tragic arc of Covid-19’s story in the global south, where following in the West’s footsteps could yet ravage the vulnerable.
Take Brazil. Western media’s relentless narrative that the country is gripped by an unprecedented coronavirus catastrophe because President Bolsonaro has been belligerently sceptical of lockdown is misleading. In fact, with deaths per million still five times lower than in Britain… “
Just one personal story. I needed a Hire car fast for business. It had to come from a neigbouring county. The guy who managing the Hire Car business would have loved to help me, he was in a different county altogether though as he had travelled back North to attend a family Sunday dinner that included a Pork Roast. The Pork Roast was delicious, had crackling on it, but my guy bust a tooth biting down on the crackling. That had happened the previous week, he was in agony and could not get to a dentist, even though he had a very expensive premium dental plan. He was having difficult to coordinate employees to co ordinate the drop off of the Hire Car during the crisis. Normally, he would have simply dropped off the car himself with the help of just one trusted helper. Couldn’t happen.

The Rolls Royce Aircraft plants are idle. The jobs have effectively evaporated. The sense of urgency is non existent.
Few, very few indeed, have yet to figure out this silicon chip economy …. that is what it is, is a complicated machine, and if you stop it, it requires a lot of “know how” to get it restarted. The “know how” is like the oil in a combustion engine, the drain plug has been pulled. The oil is gushing out, the catch pan isn’t up to the job.
The news is full of infinitesimal drivel about Coronavirus horsechit.
shtf moment coming up imho.
Great Movie… Network.
