    Of course, UK's economy is falling for the first time in 300 years, because that time, it had India as its cash market.

    Great news! Countries become socially more right wing during recessions. It’ll work in our favour ❤️

    "More than a glint of optimism here" What a laugh these overfed shysters at the Bank of England are having at everybodys expense. You are insane if you believe anything these liars say.

    It’s incredibly likely there will be a Second Wave. Looks like the economy is gone

    Why is the reporter standing about a mile away from a healthy looking person? Very weird… Flat earth. No virus. Plandemic. Study Astrology.

    They will use Corona to blame for downturn instead of Brexit.

    .Bojo wants everyone to starve, first brexit then this? Listen to the dancing Nurses, oh so busy with all this COVID. It's not safe outside, no working, bad for your health. Don't eat, if starvation kills you first you won't get the flu.

    Years of Tory austerity set this up to happen……Brexit lost us hundreds of health workers……now the government wants you to go back to work as the economy is more important than your measly pathetic lives

    Hope is not a strategy. You can bet your ass they are not telling us how bad this will be. The words they dare not use is not recession…but DEPRESSION.

    Nothing to do with the wholesale theft enabled by the overreaction to a strain of the common cold that can potentially kill, 0.04% of people. 0.02% in countries with modern health care services. Not the UK though. The headline should be your all now poorer than you were 6 weeks ago.

    When Coronaboris promoted shaking hands with every patients with confirmed infection of Covid-19 and bragged about it in his daily press conference speaking to the whole world, and when he did nothing to prepared to curb and damp the virus epidemic while bragging about herd immunity, and then built up temporary morgues (instead of negative pressure wards for potential severe patients and isolation facilities for patients with mild symptoms) soon after Her Majesty fled the Buckingham, one could easily arrived at this very likely consequence that the UK is going to turn back in economic power and all to where it was after Eisenhower lashed out with his Suez moment for the UK. But the worst in 300 hundred years was a bit off the chart of one's wildest imagination.
