Indeed, Old Boy is clearly incorrect as the above shows. But, yes we sleepwalked into an inflationary crisis because Western central banks printed money to enable spending, because they all thought it was great idea to shut down Western economies for a very survivable respiratory illness.

Welcome to your lockdown reward.

I still do not regret my vote to leave 6 years ago today. I was not lied to, or deceived and would still vote leave again and again. We have the democratic right to self determination. I was always prepared to accept any economic pain for our right to be an independent self governing nation. We are still coming through the economic pain of a global pandemic, but there is no doubt the naysayers and anti democratic folk want failure to validate their justification to be part of the EU.
The result was due to lies, the fact we're here talking about it proves it, where are the sunlit uplands, where is the German car industry not standing for it, what's happened to the fishermen and farmers who were promised the earth and now don't have jobs or businesses, I'm no remaniac as I don't want us going back in after all this but at the same time I want the people responsible to be held account, Where's the 40 million Turks that were on their way here, they get lost or something and the government was given such a democratic mandate to get this sorted, Where's the oven ready deal, instead all we're getting is it's the EUs fault because we never expected then to sign the deal, wtf what sort of reckless incompetent cretin would take a chance like that, we're only going to break international law in a limited way, wtf it's still breaking it cretin, that victorian hat stand has spent months looking for a brexit dividend and got so desperate he resorted to asking The Sun readers for their's but he made sure he got his dividend by opening up an office in the EU.

You might have been prepared for economic pain but how many of the 52% were, they were promised no pain, they were only promised better and this is not better

I know you probably posted this to get a reaction, but I’m pretty sure the 180,000 (and their families and friends) who didn’t survive this "survivable respiratory illness" may disagree with your definition of "survivable"…

Actual definition
Quote:
survivable - (of an accident or injury) very serious but not causing death

I think I've said more than once that Boza is just a snake oil salesman (in a posh suit probably paid for by someone else). Well I suppose we've ended up with what minority majority voted for and deserve all we get. One day things will change and it'll get better.

I didn’t but….just for the U.K……a disease that kills just 0.26% of the population over two years or so ……..is by any definition “survivable”………statistically.

I mean if a doctor said to me, “I’m afraid it’s bowel cancer - but the survival rate is 99.74% ……I’d take those odds……..I’d call that “survivable”.

So no, I didn’t post it to get a “reaction” and it’s very sad a lot people died….for a variety of reasons and mistakes…………but it doesn’t change the fact that COVID for the vast majority of the population was very much “survivable”.

My position on this, and lockdowns, I think you will agree has been consistent throughout.

Labour unveil plans to seek limited changes to Brexit deal

On the sixth anniversary of the Brexit referendum, the shadow foreign secretary, David Lammy, confirmed the party would seek only limited changes and would not seek to rejoin the single market.

Lammy pledged the party would seek to sign an agrifood agreement; to restore visa-free business travel for touring musicians and performers, and seek to improve haulage arrangements.

It would also seek to restore mutual recognition for professional qualifications such as accountants and architects, seal a deal on financial equivalence for the City of London and secure associate membership of the EU’s £80bn Horizon Europe science funding network, something the EU is delaying because of the row over the Northern Ireland protocol.

Without rejoining the single market or customs union, Labour’s approach amounts to a renegotiation of the trade deal which will come under regular review by both sides.
