The UK currently has inflation at 9% with the forecast that it’s going to 11%. The Bank of England has to be taking the piss with a 0.25% rise.
The table is beautiful. How did you join the sections…or did the top come as one piece?

Thanks Arky. I was wondering if it was biscuits and glue. I’m sending it to Dad to watch. It will warm the cockles of his old, carpenter and joiner’s heart.
Arky, looks great, you have improved the world. Next, those kitchen cupboards to match 🙂

Biden says a recession is ‘not inevitable’
President Joe Biden told The Associated Press on Thursday (Friday AEST) that the American people are “really, really down” after a tumultuous two years with the coronavirus pandemic, volatility in the economy and now surging petrol prices.
He said a recession is not inevitable and bristled at claims by Republican lawmakers that last year’s COVID-19 aid plan was fully to blame for inflation reaching a 40-year high, calling that argument “bizarre”.
As for the overall American mindset, Biden said, “People are really, really down.”
“They’re really down,” he said. “The need for mental health in America, it has skyrocketed, because people have seen everything upset. Everything they’ve counted on upset. But most of it’s the consequence of what’s happened, what happened as a consequence of the COVID crisis.”
Speaking to the AP in a 30-minute Oval Office interview, Biden addressed the warnings by economists that the United States could be headed for a recession.
“First of all, it’s not inevitable,” he said. “Secondly, we’re in a stronger position than any nation in the world to overcome this inflation.”
As for the causes of inflation, Biden flashed some defensiveness on that count. “If it’s my fault, why is it the case in every other major industrial country in the world that inflation is higher? You ask yourself that? I’m not being a wise guy,” he said.
The president said he saw reason for optimism with the 3.6% unemployment rate and America’s relative strength in the world.
“Be confident, because I am confident we’re better positioned than any country in the world to own the second quarter of the 21st century,” Biden said. “That’s not hyperbole, that’s a fact.”

We are BACK on the streets of Los Angeles where it all started to check back in with the rainbow people on their special day! Black trans lives matter, and one black trans person said that the inspiration for “their” look was “mental illness,” which is so true! From furries, human puppies, spanking leather daddies, hot chicks, and lots of he/shes, it’s safe to say WE ARE SO BACK and the gays had a lot to say!
