    Not only have we the twin whammy of Brexit and Covid, causing supply-chain disruptions.
    This deplorable state of affairs, is now to be compounded by a looming energy crisis - not to mention the burgeoning national debt!

    No doubt you forecast the onset of Covid-19 several weeks or months before it hit us and the rest of the world?

    Anyway you'll be able to keep warm thanks to the utterly waste of resources wood burning stoves that you foist on the rest of the population foolish enough to actually fork out hard earned cash for them?

    A) I (and many others) forecast staff shortages and their inevitable consequences if we left the EU and halted free movement of workers. Also forecast how post-Brexit border delays and regulatory issues would impact free flow of goods, creating supply-chain problems.

    B) Yes, have to admit I'm sitting pretty here with a renewable 7kw heatsource, totally independent of gas supplies (no price-rises for logs). I also have some solar, which along with its associated deep-cycle storage facility, will stand me in good stead when future power-cuts come along. No worries getting to the store either when service stations run out of fuel, thanks to a dependable stable of bikes.

    No one could have forecast Covid. The way Johnson and his merry band of idiots handled the epidemic is nothing short of criminal though, when compared to practically every other country in the world.
    Lack of PPE.
    The herd immunity shambles.
    The testing shambles.
    Countless U-turns.
    The care home crisis.
    One of the worst per capita rate of deaths in Europe.
    The profiteering from contracts handed out to dubious companies, mates of ministers.
    Shall I go on?

    Only the staff shortages can be laid at the door of Brexit so far as we have not yet started to implement the checks at the borders on imports. What is it going to be like when we do?

    I believe Brexit has already impacted UK exporters, requiring copious paperwork and a substantial fee. One well-known example was to export something simple like a small piece of specialist cheese to an individual private customer. The three-figure EU levy on it, made the transaction totally unfeasible.

    Actually a pandemic was forecast by scientists and others because they study the data and previous examples; they couldn't, however, have forecast the manner in which it appears to have been let loose.....

    It's also the reason why UK vaccine development was so rapid and successful in comparison to the majority of earlier infections.

    Same with the flu vaccine, whose formula is altered each year by the WHO to meet the variants.

    This isn't a difference of opinion it's lies after lie to defend his selling of pollution and death.

    You simply don't understand or more likely don't want to understand what your posting.

    I suppose you will have your new friend Said along soon to defend your lies.

    Yoo Hoo! Unless you know what you are talking about, which you don't, it is best not to judge!

    I did forecast a pandemic months before it broke out and I published that fact on this site! The UK had already been subjected to widespread fires, severe flooding, storms, shortage of crops and drought - so what was the obvious missing disaster - disease!

    Could you do me a favour - go on the government site for the UK, and find the figures of the number of deaths annually for the past ten years and in which age group was the greatest number of deaths? Thanks.

    A Pandemic was considered way back in the 1950's, but it was not until 2002 the USA began to research the possibilities of a flu type pandemic. In 2016, the John Hopkins University advertised for the public to send in ideas as to how such a pandemic would evolve, what it would result in, how it would affect the population, etc., The results were electronically recorded. In 2017, Trump made a declaration to say that the Pandemic fund which had been supported by all American industries, was creating a great strain on government expenditure because the fund had been set up with an arrangement that the government would give an equal amount of interest to that which the fund earned. The fund ran into $Billions.

    That is exports, if anything the the export problems might relieve the current problems in the supply chain by freeing up resource.
