its what jim rickards is warning about;

Why Inflation Will Turn To Deflation Fast - James Rickards

 

as clear as mud but deflation would destroy many SMBs , gobbling up any savings and stock value. 

 

which would ratchet up upon business unit loans when vacate premises increase

 

it would definately panick the bankers, international investors and allow government to impliment some new measures

It occurred to me today that the measures are already here hidden in plain sight, ready for them turning up the dial. Eg we have "Universal Credit" which is means-tested at the moment but they only need to loosen the criteria to make it truly universal, ie UBI.

totally. there are hundreds of thousands if not millions of people playing the system i.e earning under the £7500 threashold to claim universal credit, tax credits, child tax credits etc etc. They are hopelessly suckling upon the State, their children will be learning how to move in the payout system.

Covid showed how most others (the supposedly hard working lot) will grab the free money, wear a mask and lockdown. Now the price cap energy hand out.

They are willing to suck the teet and will claim its the best way for the country.

We also found that whatever we will do we end up on minimum wage - working or not. And for those who would buy a house if you lose one income you will not be entitled for a house benefit... You probably know how will it ends... Whole system plays you to dream small and keep close to the ground as low as possible. Even students loans. Slavery has never ended... 😔

If any South Korean chicks want my Germanic seed, holla at ya boy. Japanese are welcome too.  😀

 

You're into miscegenation 😉  Just kidding ... reminds me of another point about the HFEA Human Fertility & Embryology Authority which has tightened up on the rules for sperm donors so much in the UK (I think it is, not just England) that there's a shortage of donors and we import sperm from abroad from countries with looser rules. It's another ridiculous policy designed to destroy our sense of national identity while at the same time virtue signalling about how moral we are here. There's a similar policy about how we treat animals in farms, we have strict animal welfare rules which impose restrictions and costs on our farmers, at the same time allowing imports of meat raised with much lower standards, in the name of free trade.

I'm just playing, but if I give up on Western European women then I will look to Eastean Europe or some of South Eastern Asia.

Yes, people are still this stupid.

 

Solihull: Search continues after people pulled from icy lake

Quote

A search and rescue operation is under way after police said a number of people pulled from a lake near Solihull in freezing temperatures are in a critical condition.

West Midlands Fire Service said reports suggested people had been playing on the ice at Babbs Mill Park, and fell through.

It said people had received treatment before being taken to hospital.

Emergency service workers have gathered on Fordbridge Road in Kingshurst.

The fire service said it was leading the rescue operation, and that further details would be released when appropriate.

I hope all those 'likes' and comments on your videos were worth ending up in hospital for.

 

Smartphones make people dumb.

Maybe it's time to stop bringing in more people to add to the population. 🤷‍♂️

 

And seeing as they're reopening some coal-fired power stations, how about some more of our coal mines too? Seeing as all this imported energy is so unreliable, expensive, and exporting our jobs.

Not helped by the government allowed unrestricted building of houses in rural areas, without upgrading the roads to take extra traffic and then leaving residents to clear them (councils apparently only bother with main roads). Plus numpties driving around ignorant of the need to adjust their driving "skills" in poor conditions.

Why?

 

Calls for memorial at scene of frozen lake tragedy to honour Babbs Mill boys

Quote

 A church leader has praised the Kingshurst community for the extraordinary efforts of residents in the face of tragedy. Neighbours came together to support one another as three young boys died after getting into trouble in frozen water at Babbs Mill Park.

The children - aged eight, ten and 11 - were killed in the tragedy while a six-year-old was fighting for his life. Searches were continuing as police needed to rule out the possibility others might have fallen in during the incident.

Rev Mandy Harris, from the St Barnabas' Anglican Church on the Solihull estate, said she was struck by the sense of community during a week that had been "marked by tragedy". She moved to the area in January.

You'll have to forgive my seeming callousness or lack of sympathy, but these children were idiots, who lost their lives through their own selfish and reckless actions.

 

It is always tragic when someone loses their life, but sometimes the 'blame game' has to come to an end. Where were their parents while their children were 'playing' on the ice? Why did these children not know about the dangers of playing on ice? As I said earlier on, when I was a child I heeded warnings about frozen ponds and pools, that was over forty years ago.

 

By all means, please applaud and congratulate those brave emergency service workers who did what they could to rescue these children, and offer your condolences to those who have lost loved ones.

 

But should we really be getting into memorialising and celebrating people who were basically idiots?

Cornwall live is done with the same system as in the link above. I always find it interesting when certain news items have comments disabled. Ok, I get there are some nasty people out there but it’s still a form of censorship Imo.
