|A question for the vaccinated...|
at 23:08 23 Jul 2021
Seeing as how being vaccinated does not stop us transmitting the virus and yet we can travel/attend events etc without being tested, how do you feel about being used as superspreaders.
I just cancelled my holiday abroad for this very reason as most on the plane will be untested.

Feeling mean, cross, unappreciated...need to vent? Misdirect your wrath my way, It was probably my fault, I likely deserve it and will be out most of the day so fill your boots.

At the risk of this becoming heated.....my French beans are like triffids this year, falling over currants and cherries but this years epic fail is blueberries (late Spring cold plus hail maybe.)
Over to the rest of you boring old and prematurely old folk!
|Q.E.....ÂŁ895 Bn and rising...|
at 08:06 16 Jul 2021
Michael Forsyth, the committeeâ€™s chairman, said: â€śTheÂ Bank of EnglandÂ has become addicted to quantitative easing. It appears to be its answer to all the countryâ€™s economic problems and by the end of 2021, the Bank will own an eye-watering ÂŁ875bn of government bonds and ÂŁ20bn in corporate bonds.â€ť
Lord Forsyth said the scale and persistence of QE â€“ which was now equivalent to 40% of the economyâ€™s output â€“ required the sort of â€śsignificant scrutinyâ€ť the Bank had not faced up until now.
â€śGoing forwards, the Bank must be more transparent, justify the use of QE and show itâ€™s working. The Bank needs to explain how it will curb inflation if it is more than just short term. It also needs to do more to mitigate widening wealth inequalities that have resulted from rising asset prices caused by QE.â€ť
