Re: 2020 Potential Economic Collapse

There hasnt been much discussion about how we are going to pay for all this money being spent during the pandemic. Just managed to escape Austerity after 10 years and back into a deeper Austerity for 20. Who can concieve of what would be cut now and what would skyrocket.

Re: Interesting article on continuing flour shortages.

Being a butcher,I’ll be guided by the Geordie baker who , as a career tradesman , served in Camp Bastion. He knows his stuff. Us professionals don’t tolerate dirty food.
