    All the jargon and graphs that economists use as a smokescreen to bore the general public from financial related things is genius. You don’t want the poors to figure out that the only thing keeping money “real” is their belief that it’s real.

    That 1.05 Billion pounds the NHS would have in reserve funding would have really come in handy.

    But when you don’t have enough medical professionals because you cut off the pipeline of immigrants who were qualified there’s no point in giving the NHS adequate funding.

    Then they make moves to privatize the NHS and offer the NHS workers an insulting 1% pay raise after working themselves into PSTD in a pandemic. Never trust a Tory.

    This is a lovely bit of irony from the chief cheerleaders of Brexit

    Brexit/Covid shortages are apparently about to get bad, and I'm sure Scotland will feel them harder than London. Between that, the National Insurance tax hike, and just Boris being Boris, I suspect Scoxit picks up 5-10 points in the next year

    The polls have swung back to “no” over the summer, after being “yes” for ages. I don’t really get why, possibly it’s because England opened up a little earlier than Scotland after Covid and there were some people annoyed about prolonged restrictions. Possibly the fact that the U.K. got some earlier vaccines through luck. Overall though the EU and U.K. finished vaccinating at the same time and the acute issues you point to should take hold again. Boris will have to go before any vote, he is toxic.

    I'm here for the Loyalist paramilitaries who got kicked out of Northern Ireland and now live in Scotland (Johnny Adair) seeing their new homeland leave the UK.

    Sure they’re only back in their real homes….

    Some cracking books on Loyalism, the feuds between them post the Peace Process were mad. I recall every weekend as a child hearing about a new sub group formed that had assassinated another sub group’s leader.

    Reading/watching stuff about the Loyalist feuds and it's funny (as long as no innocents get hurt) how these guys are just total clowns. They're basically all just drug dealers and extortionists. Guys being referred to as the "Bacardi Brigadier" because they're a drunk and the "Burger King Brigadier" because they're fat is hilarious.

    This whole channel is a pretty good resource of “England doesn’t really have a government but everyone pretends it does”

    Nothing too major, other than Raab gone as Foreign Secretary.

    Liz Truss. :roll:

    This is the new foreign secretary for those unaware.
