    UK - Australia Trade Deal 🇬🇧🇦🇺

    Why is anyone surprised, this was always the Tories intention and they are just getting on with doing what they intended

    RIP Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh

    Royal Family were originally Saxe Coburg Gotha and anglicised to Windsor in 1917. Philip was from the German branch in Greece..

    Hmmmmm, the Royal family are originally German and had to change name to Windsor during WW1 because of anti German feeling.

    Australian and UK Covid Responses

    As I understand it they are simply being required to live up the expectations of their job contract and fulfill the altruistic expectations of their professions and their commitment is being seen for what it is, low, and judged accordingly.

    Many have asked that question but few have got clarity.

    Briton’s pushed to food banks

    Yep, hammer, nut, head. Spot on ! Everything warned about is coming to pass. The only thing is that it appears 'Sleepy Joe' doesn't seem in the least bothered about a trade deal so American farm produce maybe quite expensive, EU produce maybe the fallback after all

    Australia v China

    I'm sorry but the post stated, " have been building submarines since about 1913. I was there in 1999 at Port Adelaide in the "Hangar" for the Collins Class Pig Boats being built "

    Australia v China

    Sorry but that is incorrect All the submarines in the Australian navy up to the 90s were British or American built , see attached article https://www.jstor.org/stable/10.7249/j.ctt3fh0pr.9?seq=1#metadata_info_tab_contents

    I would really query whether Australia has the workforce to build highly complex equipment such as this, the French are having huge problems with their building nuclear stations in France and the UK, so it may well just be window dressing to continue the embarrassment game and continue the opportunities for kickbacks to the lib dems over the next 10- 15 years from this contract if it is built in Australia, a la car park allocations

    I know no one will care but...........

    Seven seems a bit extreme, with high build polyurethane varnishes I would have thought that 3or4 would be plenty.

    UK - Australia Trade Deal 🇬🇧🇦🇺

    I'd be much reassured if he had a qualification in something vaguely like international trade or economics but it seems like he will simply be the figurehead for a deal which will add about 0.25% to UK trade figures despite all the hype.

    RNLI donations increase 3000%

    He is just a theif, he's had it away with the funds donated to the political party thar he registered as a Ltd company with him as the director and one of his other crooked mates, so all of his supporters donations have not done anything to support their views but he pops up every now and then to make them believe he's doing something for them by slagging off easy targets like a decent altruistic, independent, charity, which the Charity Commissioners say are doing what their charter says they are set up to do "Save lives ar sea"

    Australian and UK Covid Responses

    Problem is a lot of young are dieing now and a lot are being left with long covid and we are not in the flu season yet so at this time of year there would be low death time when NHS usually catch up on selective ops, it doesn't matter if people die all the time, in the UK we have had something in the order of 127,000 deaths of which something like 75,000 deaths are in excess of normal mortality.

    Australian and UK Covid Responses

    o hospital by ambulance with a very bad chest infection which hasn’t responded to antibiotics, and needs iv antibiotics. Her daughter couldn’t go with her, and she had to wait 8 hrs waiting for a bed space in the assessment unit. She is only allowed one, one hour, visiting slot a day for one person, and that depends if there are any visiting slots left as there is a cap on the daily number allocated I am not making this political in any way, but it was a reality check for me how hard it is for hospitals in England to cope even now. Unfortunately most things are political because politicians now have inserted themselves into making decisions which used to be 85% professional and they want it to be that way because they want to make everything in their political image so that there is no opposition to them from any quarter. A good example is the advice from the doctor to your friend on which vaccine your relative should have. I'm sorry about your SIL but that is a pretty good example of the pressure the NHS is under and the govt haven't maintained it with staff or equipment and must take responsibility after having been in office for 11 years or more and reorganised it supposedly to work better and are about to do it again, so I feel they have created the problem in large part by cutting continuously and always ignoring the possibility of a pandemic in their insane desire to run the NHS on a shoestring. If your SIL is suffering now imagine what it may be like in winter when temps are 10 degrees or more colder. Please convey my wishes for a speedy recovery to her.
