    " We will bend the science in order to fit our narrative to destroy as many working/middleclass businesses as is possible whilst hoping the vast majority of people don't realise what is really going on. This formula has worked so far and we will continue to do so for as long as possible. By the way …. Merry Christmas"

    I've got a suggestion outlaw zero hour contracts. Make a compulsory retirement age like we used too, this will ensure young people at the start of there financial life arnt held back by these selfish old fools who think its cleaver to work past there retirement .

    Just a heads up to anyone worried about "costs": The IMF and the BIS are going to break money.

    Seriously, THEY know money is a casino chip. Nothing more. It's meaningless other than the meaning WE assign to it. The central banks have this power to issue liquidity, and they have the ability to write it off when it's over.

    The Shareholders of the central banks know damn well that if they let us crash, we will destroy ALL of their verticals, and then NO ONE makes any money.

    Stop worrying about money. The central banks have ALL agreed to keep issuing liquidity with no questions asked for as long as it's needed. Even THEY know total war serves no one, and if they don't provide liquidity for a desperate world, there will be total war.

    With nukes.

    Don't worry. The central banks will make this happen, and they have the power to do so.

    He should save money and save lives by stopping the idiots putting traffic lights and cycle lanes on our roads. Then people and emergency services can move sensibly. This will cut pollution and congestion. We could do away with smart motorways to save lives and money and cut pollution and congestion. Covid 19 is as dangerous as a smart motorway and multiplying just as fast. Now we are leaving the European Union. He needs to get rid of the Environment Agency so we can dredge the rivers and prevent flooding.

    Functional Cretins can’t see weaning back support to find themselves unemployed and if we are in La la land then minimum payments should be 100% of minimum wage.
    Still those of us self employed wouldn’t be unhappy to see government heads roll for ONS Q419 GDP crash,NICE Frailty level 5 and care home £1000 per untested payment genocide

    Need to call for an annulment of all debt, set everyone free, set the planet free, all money was acquired by dishonest means due to its very foundation being fraudulent , counterfeited and issued at interest.
    The principal sum can never be repayed, creating nothing more then oppressed debt slaves.
    Interest does nothing but escalate the rate of failure
