    Considering what apparently kicked this all off - is taking "the knee" really the best choice of protest these folk can think of

    I can't keep up. For years they decided that white people calling black people black was racist. Hence the African American moniker.
    I was reading an article over the weekend in which a Brit, now an American, had made a comment about the race riots. He was referred to as 'ex-British' - why not 'British American'?
    They really are falling apart. The whole wrapped in the flag thing, apple pie, white picket fences based on the revolution, the constitution, etc, means nothing to a great many Americans now it seems. Their loyalty is seemingly in Africa or Mecca. Goodness knows what the white ANTIFA ones believe as they seem intent on destroying all the good things about the US, including the flag.
    The US is in a heck of a mess - so are we - for many of the same reasons. I hope they can sort it out. I like to believe that the vast majority of Americans are good, decent people. But their voices, apart from electing Trump, seem to be being silenced again.

    The Generation Game reacted to twocents in Can they restart the economy....   
    At today's press briefing it was announced that Boris and Rishi are working on proposals for a brand new economy and they will announce their proposals very soon.  Evidently their ideas are being kept well under wraps until the big announcement.
    Are they genius new proposals that nobody could have possibly thought of as the UK economy continued to decline over many decades.  Will it involve a brand new "Rebalancing" of the economy.  Will it involve a brand new "Powerhouse" of something somewhere.  Will it involve the discovery of a brand new form of "White Heat of Technology". 
    It couldn't just be "More Brand New Debt, Money Printing and Bailouts" could it. 
    Abandon hope, all ye who enter here.

    Furloughing is perfectly fine based on two things:
    1. Everyone going back to work at the same time. 
    2. Supply and demand on the first day being the same as it was the day before lockdown started. 
    TL:DR there's going to be blood on the streets and the Rothschilds will be buying everything.

    You're both wrong 😊
    It's the people who think they're smarter that everyone else that can be easily manipulated, they're thick people who think they're intelligent. They conflate opinion with fact and then agree it amongst themselves. Mostly middle class (and aspirants) or bar room intellectuals.
    Thick people who know they're thick go by instinct. 
    Smart people know that in reality they know fuck all so do their own research.

    A few years ago I got a working from home gig for a few months.  I booked airbnb in Spain for £200 a month.  My work desk overlooked a harbour.  Heaven.  Go do something like that Joe.

    If I was a student I would be asking why I am asked to pay 5.5% on my student loan - which I can't even get out of by going bankrupt - yet Dodgy PLC can borrow £50k at 2.5% and go bust with no comeback.
    I think it would piss me off a bit.

    We chuck a £1bn of taxpayer's money at an Indian firm, to keep it going long enough for them to shift all the production abroad?

    I'm waiting for a response from the Czech ministry of interior about only having a copy of my residency certificate and whether this is sufficient. 
    Either way, I will almost certainly be booking a flight tomorrow.
