    'the Donald' Trump

    Donalf Trump has critisised the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue. Trump said "If only we had Robert E. Lee to command our troops in Afghanistan, that disaster would have ended in a complete and total victory many years ago. What an embarrassment we are suffering because we don't have the genius of a Robert E. Lee!" For those not familiar with US history (like Donald), Lee was the commander of the Confederate army which lost the US civil war.

    European Union - In Or Out?

    If you read the report it states "We adhere to our previous forecast that Brexit will lead to the creation of 3,500 additional jobs in the German banking centre overall. Given its unique role for Brexit banks, Frankfurt can expect to gain around 1,500 additional jobs in 2021/2022." Therefore, Frankfurt can both benefit from Brexit while at the same time seeing a slight fall in overall employment levels due to continual cost cutting. https://www.helaba.de/blueprint/servlet/resource/blob/docs/558210/3764a9e9261cd92bbb246bbfc9a9b761/financial-centre-focus-more-than-brexit-20210628-data.pdf

    European Union - In Or Out?

    The Global Financial Centres Index Issue 29 - March 2021 New York retains first place in the index. London fell to only one point ahead of third place Shanghai. Frankfurt replaced San Francisco in the top 10 in this edition, gaining seven rank places, perhaps benefiting from the exit of the UK from the European Union. London's rating fell by 23 points, while Frankfurt's rose by 12. https://www.longfinance.net/media/documents/GFCI_29_Full_Report_2021.03.17_v1.1.pdf GFCI 29 was compiled using 143 instrumental factors. These quantitative measures are provided by third parties including the World Bank, The Economist Intelligence Unit, the OECD, and the UN.
  4. What a dilly of a pickle for Boris. If he doesn't sack Hancock he looks weak and if he does sack Hancock then he looks like a hypocrite for not resigning himself when details of his affair and his payments of taxpayer's money to his mistress were made public.
  5. How does that explain a ten fold increase between this April and last April?
  6. An interesting angle to the mask debate: As people unmask, other viral diseases are making a dangerous comeback
  7. If you're not happy that the selection and interview process is fair, you can complain to the Prime Minister’s Anti-Corruption Champion... who is Dido Harding's husband.

    European Union - In Or Out?

    It is a big issue Brexiteers. Most people in Britain don't care and no one in Europe cares. The EU are laughing at us for signing up to a Protocol that we cannot implement and continually stalling for time when one of the stated benefits of Brexit was supposed to be "taking back control of our borders".

    'the Donald' Trump

    Snopes claims "No, Trump Did Not Wear His Pants Backwards at Rally" https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/trump-wear-pants-backwards/ However, according to you Snopes is a globalist/Facebook/Soros funded mouthpiece, therefore I can only conclude that Trump, did in fact, wear his pants backwards.

    European Union - In Or Out?

    I thought EU countries couldn't make their own deals while they were in the EU - at least that's what Brexit supporters claimed.

    People claim Biden is senile, but at least he can put his suit trousers on the right way round.

    Should we be worried?

    It is a controversial topic. Some people say "nothing to hide, nothing to fear", which is a bit glib in my opinion. Others will tell you it is "anonymized" however, if you have a rare health condition and your data is split by location, how hard would it be to identify you - let alone if you join this dataset to others which are available?

    'the Donald' Trump

    Capitol rioters have "brain damage" and won't enter plea deals due because they "think Trump is going to swoop in and save them" according to two defense attorneys representing the attackers. https://www.rawstory.com/capitol-attackers-think-trump-save-them/ Some people just don't know when it's over.
