How can you has and will something? You either have or you will.
If you have you don't need to do it again. If you haven't then maybe you will, maybe you won't. If you have maybe you won't do it again.

His reason is being 80. We should congratulate him on that!

Entitled to say whatever ever the fcuk he wants because when you get to 80 you transition from being the font of all stupidity, to being right about everything without any good reason.

Obvious.

It’s just Boris as well?
Not advisors, ministers, experts, this virus, Brexit, the general public, previous governments, the ebbs and flows of other countries, the numerous depressions, the privatising or national companies, the strikes, the regulation, the laws, the protocols, the bureaucracy, the wars, the fact we got rid of all of our manufacturing because it’s cheaper abroad, selling public money, selling out to foreign investors, not the currency exchange rates and their effects, it’s just Boris?

Arcadia doesn't own fcuk
I think if it owned the usage rights, it would still be going down the gurgler.

All that Chinese product had to have a shelf life... We had similar with The Warehouse group, all cheap Chinese stuff. COVID was the straw that broke the cut throat margins.

Opens the door for better quality, though obviously more expensive genuinely home grown products. Not just UK labels on Chinese made?

Really? with online sales, expecially Amazon and Ebay going through the roof and local shops closed you think we are out buying more home grown products?

Do you just make this stuff up and think reality conveniently wraps itself around you?

Covid effects on global manufacturing snd logistics is only just started to be felt, as inventory has depleted through the cridis and re-supply and manufacturingcannot keep up/is way behind.
A sustemic lead and lag loop cycle that will become much more difficult to control economically.
The worst affected are the 'Tiny Rowland' philosophised stack em high sell em cheap highstreet volume retailers, that rely on volume sales. Volume re-supply is becoming really difficult. As each item relies on several commodity supply chains. China is badly affected, as you can imagine.

Do you genuinely ask sarcastic rhetorical questions without already knowing the answer... My assumption is that you do!🙃

Where do you get the idea that China is badly affected?

Do you know which countries have lockdowns and are not producing?

The Chinese economy saw growth of 4.9% between July and September.

They are struggling to get raw materials in the volumes they require. As are we, from them. Silly things like paint to spray products with. Becsuse they cant obtain in volume one or more of the ingredients required to mske it... It means products have to stop being made and everything just backs up. Its going to become a really big mess for volume industry. Food industry here is cutting product lines daily. Same reason. We csnt get people from overseas to harvest millions of tonnes of fruit and produce. What is the downstream effect of that alone to the overseas consumers..?

Lack of supply, here, not there, because without China our shops run dry.

Who do you think recovers faster in that situation? us? dependent on them?

There is no on this earth that the UK can supply itself, we dismantled manufacturing in the Thatcher era, and now we have just dismantled our trade with the rest of the world via the biggest trade block in the world making it harder to do what you are suggesting.

The rest of the world will still trade with the UK. No question.

China cannot produce to order without the various raw materials which were largely all supplied on a "just in time" logistics strategy that reduced the need for warehousing. The real warehouses being the high street store chains at the end of the supply chain. Well there is nothing at the front of the chain and the middle has depleted. The end of the chsin - the shops close down first and reopen last. That is what is starting to happen.

Will have yo stop writing have just got to the river for a spot of trout spey - 5 wt. Burkheimer this arvo - havnt plsyec with that one for a while on the Tukituki - but the water is up and wide..

Will tske a photo and attach..

For perspective, I can’t cast all the way across it today from 20ft. in. So more than 100ft. across. The channel is close to the far bank, you can just make out the seam - broken to smooth, 2/3rd’s across..

Fortunately it wasn’t death through being dragged out to sea by trout this afternoon!
A blank, to report - but catching fish is only 20% of the enjoyment, based on “Pareto”of course..!

Something for a few initiate’s to Google there.. as I once had to, except it was an encyclopaedia in those days...🙃

Yes I’ll go with Pareto , 80% of the total ******** on this forum is posted by 20% of the active posters .

...you would be statistically correct with that! 👍

And, 80% of the fish, caught by 20% of the anglers.
