    Default DOOM: It’s Official - UK facing risk of 'systemic economic crisis'

    ‘ The government has privately admitted the UK faces an increased likelihood of “systemic economic crisis” as it completes its exit from the European Union in the middle of a second wave of the coronavirus pandemic.

    A confidential Cabinet Office briefing seen by the Guardian also warns of a “notable risk” that in coming months the country could face a perfect storm of simultaneous disasters, including the prospect of a bad flu season on top of the medical strains caused by Covid.

    “Winter 2020 could see a combination of severe flooding, pandemic influenza, a novel emerging infectious disease and coordinated industrial action, against a backdrop of the end of the [Brexit] transition period,” it warns.“

    British people “lack a basic understanding” of economic statistics such as unemployment or the government’s deficit, and at the same time mistrust official data, a hard-hitting report funded by the Office for National Statistics concluded on Wednesday

    That's because the newspapers and the media take statistics, particularly health ones, out of context regardless of whether they are left, right or centre in their politics. Why do you think there are so many anti-vaxxers and 5G haters?
