  1. Big concern for me right now. One of my syndicates is well managed on the oxygenation front, well all fronts really, the other is pretty much left to its own devices (64 members and I was the only one on there overnight).
  2. Costco is the cheapest price around here by some margin. Reasonable queues though, understandably.
  3. Ironic on several fronts. I don't think Germany has the monopoly on recession.
  4. Just coming back to this after a busy weekend and another work trip. Err, OK Sorry, but that's rubbish, there was no such clause / condition. By the law of averages, Trump had to get something right during his term. I'm not denying he was right on the energy independence issue, but that was blindingly obvious. I'm questioning why, on balance, anyone need apologise to him on the point. Again, sorry, but it's nothing like the Police brutality topic, really random point. Kinda lost on the link between Trump and Remain too, but never mind.
  5. OK but as I have suggested earlier, things need to be kept in balance. Workforce shortages leads to higher salaries which leads to higher prices which leads to higher inflation. I suspect inflation has outpaced salary increases for the majority of people, little, medium or large. Personally my salary went up 8% since last year but I'm definitely no better off, particularly given the tax increases and the implication the salary increase had on income tax thresholds.
  6. 1. Err, you yourself compared UK to EU. 2. You just contradicted yourself. 3. We were never shackled to a centralised Euro currency. 4. We left the EU to take back control and chart our own destiny - it was purported to be some kind of path to utopia, it clearly isn't - at least yet, but I do hope that changes. I agree you can't compare UK to Poland but I started the point on year on year growth based on the UK and comparison to other G7 nations. 5. Clearly a different one to you 😉 https://www.ons.gov.uk/economy/economicoutputandproductivity/productivitymeasures/bulletins/internationalcomparisonsofproductivityfinalestimates/2020 6. I don't know whether to laugh or cry at the frankly odious admiration of Trump but I guess it should come as no surprise as he's cut from the same cloth as Johnson, whom you seem to adore.
  7. Apologies for the late retort, was on a biz trip to Paris 😛 I didn't miss that point. You appear to be, somewhat conveniently, overlooking the fact that based on those figures - from 2017 to 2023 (projected) - overall EU growth is 11.3% vs 8% for UK!? Also that the %age dip in 2020 for UK was nearly twice that of the EU - what might the reason(s) for that be? The point is that the situation on employment, I agree it's good by the way, is skewed by the workforce exodus as a result of Brexit, which isn't so good for those who are trying to resource businesses and drive growth. UK average earnings growth compared to other countries, year on year. Eh!? There appears to be a correlation between lower hours worked and greater productivity. The key point though is that the UK is significantly behind France and Germany. Nothing to do with moving to Ireland... That was a reply to another post from another contributor, do try to keep up...
  8. Everything like - examples please? We have left, at the very least I was expecting the brave souls who voted for it would at least own the issues it has caused. But no, it's always somebody else's fault... If you voted for it, then at least be man enough to own the consequences of it. When!?
  9. That's a really ill formed example. Are you suggesting the IMF are a part of the remainer spin establishment? Of course our employment figures are good, Brexit resulted in a ton of our workforce returning to their native EU countries. Compounded by global skills shortage and mass resignation. I'm pretty sure any UK resident who is able and willing to work can find a job. Relative earnings are another measure of prosperity, have you checked how we fayre compared to other nations in that regard? Then there's the topic of productivity but I don't expect you'll enter into a "debate" about how productive the French are, for example, compared to us... So, it's because of migrants, OK. You actually thought the illegal immigrant issue was going to improve as a result of Brexit, like really!? Net zero, what are these burdens you refer to and how do they impact GDP? That's some bubble you're living in fella...
  10. Talking of economics, we’re now predicted to have the lowest growth of all G7 economies next year, of all the major global economies only Russia is predicted to fair worse. What’s the cause of that I wonder… Good job we took back that control 😉
  11. She is going to be PM. After her "win" against Mourdant yesterday she tweeted that "she is going to hit the ground" which was later updated to "hit the ground running". Like you say, God help us! GSTQ
  12. One potential scenario I can see playing out is Trustless crashing and burning in record time with Boris making a comeback. Indeed, the cynic in me might even go as far as suggesting that is precisely what has been engineered thus far.
  13. I might be able to bring myself to vote Tory at the next GE under Sunak, can't see how I'll do anything other than continue to abstain if it's the other one...
