Seems odd to let scientists/politicians promoting damaging policies/narratives; let alone in a pandemic; off the hook because they CLAIM they were only doing what they believed in. When what they believed was not evidenced & what they said did untold harm.

LOL

 

taxing working pensioners more to pay for those not working and in care homes aren't they - bet that doesn't include 'pensioners like Prince Charles and Lord hahhaw of France .. (who, last I heard, was leaving France because they wanted details on his earnings) or the many over 65-67's in the lords and parliament let alone MD's

 

.. in addition to Johnsons 2.5% increase in NI .. yep 2.5% NOT the 1.25% Johnson lies about 1.25% from employees and 1.25% from employers - many of whom will undoubtedly consider it a raise for the workers ..

So thats around 12 billion in extra NI charges plus the 25 billion in other taxes - they'll be able to cover their mates bills in just a few years at that rate

- no way the NHS and care system will get more than a tiny bit of it.

and the (literally now - see wild weather)  poopulists think US trade is going to be 'better'

LOL - they should ask the US's more important partners mexico and Canada how that works

 

Mind you. Johnson will get a taste of his own medicine in that the US will happily 'renegotiate' (renege?) any deal as soon as it suits

- although unlike Johnson, they tend to get a better deal at the other parties expense.

It's David and Goliath, isn't it? Fairly obvious who will win, plus a US trade deal can take up to 10 years.

 

Changing the subject, Patel is threatening to send migrant boats back into French waters and have the UK's interpretation of maritime law rewritten so it looks as if it doesn't break international law. Or the Geneva convention.

 

She suggested to Gerald Darmanin of France that they should set up a joint patrol force. I loved his reply that it would infringe French sovereignty. :lol:

Not if one side (the USA) gets everything it wants straight away HB

If Australia can get a deal thats 6x better for Australia than the UK ....

- seemingly without even trying very hard

- I doubt the UK could afford a US deal - even before Johnson bankrupted us

 

.. let alone just England and wales

UK now in a spiral of tax increases to cover increased costs.

 

The mixture or Brexit and Covid is deadly.

 

UK after Brexit  wanted to set up as the worlds biggest financial centre with light touch regulation. This won't happen, as the trade deals with US and other countries will not enable this.   The EU Brexit deal did not include financial services from what I remember.

 

Where next for the UK economy ?

Boris 'Inveterate and unapologetic LIAR' Johnson lies:

“We should never forget, after all we’ve been through, that we are the party of free enterprise, the private sector and low taxation.”

 

While the so called party of low taxes is implementing the highest tax load on the nation since world war 2 (IFS)

- despite running away from a quite small war in Afghanistan as they just can't cope on their own - and nobody trusts them enough to work with them

-  mostly because of monstrous waste and mismanagement in the COVID crisis, and monstrous incompetent and neglectful  mismanagement of Brexit

 

The so called party of business and the private sector

is putting UK businesses out of business through populist policies and failures, NOT business capability and competitiveness and failure to manage the Brexit issues the populists themselves generated

 

The so called Party of 'free enterprise'

implements a preference for crony pals (no matter how lacking in requirements) fast lane - hardly free enterprise, just preference for pals - massively at the cost of the NHS - to pay which (their pals) the tax increases are undoubtedly aimed

 

The so called Party of sovereignty

runs whinging to the US and Australia 'please please give us a deal, anything, we wont cheat you like we do the others just give us a deal headline' 

and to France to help police sovereign UK waters ... in a way that breaches international law)...

.. and to the USA or France to host the UK  'sovereign' nuclear deterrent

Oh and another over streached bubble going pop

WWW.THEGUARDIAN.COM

Shares in Hong Kong-listed firm slump 10% and bond trade suspended amid fears for shaky Chinese real estate market

 

With more properly regulated businesses moving to the EU, whats left with in the incompetent poopulist run UK may well make the UK and its taxpayers IMMENSELY vulnerable to this sort of thing ...

 

Yes, Brexiters like Redwood, Smugg and dyson have moved a lot of their business to the EU, but its what movers (rats/sinking ships?) leave in the UK we should worry about: are they liferafts .. or lead weights?

Oh and back to the Australia deal Truss/UK poopulist surrender terms ...

 

"Just weeks before the UK hosts what have been described as the most important climate talks ever, it has emerged ministers dropped pledges to bind Australia to climate targets in its efforts to strike a trade deal.

The revelation, coming from a leaked email obtained by Greenpeace, will heap further pressure on Johnson ahead of the Cop26 summit in Glasgow at the end of next month. Greenpeace said the concession “rips the heart out of” the landmark Paris aims, while Labour called it “a massive betrayal of our country and our planet”"

- Independent

 

 

https://www.greenpeace.org.uk/news/uk-secretly-ditches-climate-pledge-in-australia-trade-deal/

 

"In a leaked email seen by Greenpeace UK, three senior ministers, Liz Truss (Secretary of State for International Trade), David Frost (Minister of State for EU Relations) and Kwasi Kwarteng (Secretary of State for Business) are named as agreeing to ditch references to the temperature commitments in the Paris Agreement on climate in order to get the Australian trade deal “over the line”.

This renders using the term Paris Agreement utterly useless."

 

"Just last month the UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, wrote to Greenpeace and other environmental NGOs reaffirming that any trade deal with Australia would, “include a chapter on trade and environment which not only reaffirms commitments to multilateral environmental agreements, including the Paris Agreement but also commits both parties to collaborate on climate and environmental issues. We are clear that more trade will not come at the expense of the environment.”

Details from the leaked email demonstrate that what Boris Johnson wrote in that letter was a lie."

Supermarket Food shortages here for the long term and going to get worse says Food and Drink Federation boss.

 

JIT (just in time) system relied on by many industries for the last 25 years has (as long defined as a cost of brexit, but falsely denied by Brexit cheerleaders) has collapsed mostly due to Brexit generated 'hostile environment' labour shortages including food pickers, lorry drivers and food processing workers and Brexit generated customs delays and costs

‘We are now in for permanent shortages’, says boss of Food and Drink Federation

 

 

 

Perhaps Patel should be asking the boat migrants if they can drive lorries, pick fruit or process food before she risks drowning them?

From TJ's post: ‘We are now in for permanent shortages’, says boss of Food and Drink Federation

 

No 10 spokesman says food shortages will be over by Christmas. Just like the UK seeing off Covid in 12 weeks, as Alastair Campbell tweeted.

Don't know what the stock levels of shops in France is like, but I have family in Spain, who say that there are no empty shelves there.

 

Yes covid has probably hit production, but the UK appears to be suffering more because of the shortgage of labour due to Brexit.

No empty shelves reported in France.

 

The only time recently was at the beginning of the pandemic when people didn't know how things would go, but there were no shortages of loo rolls or other stuff to speak of. Some of the supermarkets had a bit of a run on pasta and soap, the small shops didn't run out at all.

The whole Cabinet is in need of removal, there is no democratic process, the whole Covid situation is serious, but as in France Covid Passports so easily morphed by Entrust to a CCP style Social Credit Digital ID/Pass  are sinister and counterproductive, but Klaus Schwab and WEF have told the Davos set what they must do so expect more restrictions but gradually moving over to Carbon Zero rather than Covid.
