    Anyone know which satellite that is?

    No. Perhaps Hoppe is getting a visit from Steve Gibson, Chris Wilder and Leo. They are three wise men, aren’t they?

    Anyone know which satellite that is?

    Recession, inflation and interest rates

    I was leaving it for someone else to pick up on it and comment, but look at the UK on the graph i added. Second worst in Europe for effect on the poor, but look at the differential between the poor and rich. France, Germany, Denmark, Finland, Sweden, the poor and rich are affected almost the...

    45% DROP IN BRITISH ACTS BOOKED FOR EUROPEAN FESTIVALS POST-BREXIT

    Not ignoring this, just have a lot going on. I like the distractions of this board sometimes, but I've already fit in some lengthy posts in on a couple of threads, which leaves me little time for another. It's a great question though.

    45% DROP IN BRITISH ACTS BOOKED FOR EUROPEAN FESTIVALS POST-BREXIT

    Ok, so you might have to read my very long post up the page to properly get this, but part of the answer is that the EU, whatever people say, is fundamentally a rule book concerned with fair trade. It works not because each member state automatically trusts each other but because there is a...

    I'm sure there will be another one when we leave the ECHR, to show us with some friends on that at least, Russia and Belarus.

    45% DROP IN BRITISH ACTS BOOKED FOR EUROPEAN FESTIVALS POST-BREXIT

    It's a good question and between about Sep 2016 to Dec 2019 I was so well informed on these EU/Brexit matters I was even getting Professors of EU Law, current/former EU officials and Trade Experts who were giving advice to Parliamentary Committees piling in to back me up on Twitter with evidence...

    America - prodding the bees nest

    Many of the analysts who predicted Russia wouldn't invade Ukraine did so because they looked at it rationally like that. The were right in that Russia shouldn't invade, but Putin did. Partly that was because Putin's intelligence services were not looking at accurate information. That's what...

    America - prodding the bees nest

    Indeed. It is definitely what Xi wants to do. The only thing that will give him pause is if it looks like China could end up with a disaster like Ukraine is proving for Russia. An amphibious assault is far more challenging than the land invasion of a neighbour, unless it is unopposed and there...

    Rob, what do you think this is going to have as a long term effect on the British music industry if it carries on? How important are those European tours and revenue to those up and coming bands for their growth and survival?

    By 2019 a majority of the country had decided Brexit was a mistake for at least 18 months. Starmer was not going to campaign against a second referendum, it was he who announced it to a standing ovation at the Labour conference earlier that year. It was Corbyns ineptness and the duplicity of...
