    Ong, the world price of gas has gone up precisely because Russia has nowhere to sell it. The Chinese can't make up for all the sales Russia used to have to Europe. Russia is burning gas off because...

    Was this the same pipeline that Russia "shut down for maintenance" then? In that case, yeah whatever, I may be coming around to the idea that someone named Igor "accidentally" blew it up in several...

    Is the pipeline actually dead? As in, there's been no gas going through it because of the war? Sorry I've been too busy watching the UK implode to pay much attention to the bigger world.

    They invaded a country to get more oil once iirc. Don't think bombing a pipeline is out of the playbook.




    There you have a point.

    Yeah I think you guys are reaching a bit on this one.

    Not that that makes Ong being a habitual Putin apologist any less annoying.

    Now the guy who thinks every news source in the West is a propaganda machine is quoting the US MSM. My head may explode from too much irony.

    When I criticise the UK gov't for valid reasons, you suggest I might be happier if I left. You don't seem to like the West much, so maybe you'd be happier if you moved to Russia.

    No-one here was parroting Western propaganda either. You just starting going off on one.






    If you believe the Russian propaganda, yes.

    I just said it was probably the West that blew up the pipeline. But really I don't care, because either side would have no qualms about doing it if it was in their interests. It's not like "Oh Russia...

    Yep, it was someone in the West who did it, probably the US.

    On the other hand, the West hasn't invaded another country and held "referendums" to force-annex bits of their territory.

    I mean theoretically having a strong $ should be good because it costs them less to import things, which should bring inflation down as the US runs a trade deficit. More widgets for the same $ and...

    Yeah well those people are completely unreasonable. I don't think we'll ever manage to stamp that out unfortunately.

    I agree with all of this, apart from the idea of a trans woman "demanding" a lesbian girlfriend, as if the other person has no option to refuse.

    But, the whole trans debate is an issue that is...

    Not sure what's going on with the stock markets, but the US dollar is doing great, the UK pound is not.

    Don't forget the goddamn lefties in the IMF all doing the wokey cokey.

    Thanks a lot Keir Starmer! See what you've done?

    Mortgage providers are pulling their products because they don't know wtf is going on. This is 2008 level fuckedupittiness. Only this time it's the government doing it, not the financiers.

    Oh, and IMF is telling Truss to reverse the tax cuts. So even they think her plan is fucked.

    There's not going to be a boom this time. There MIGHT be a short period of growth due to the stimulus effect of pumping all that money in, but it's not sustainable. It's fantasy economics, even Rishi...

    Basically, all the experts told Truss and Kwarteng "Don't do this, you'll crash the economy," and they did it anyways. It's quite incredible really.

    I'm not really up on his status there. Is he under some kind of house arrest? How do they control which rooms he can go into?

    Edward Snowden has been granted Russian citizenship. I'm torn between thinking Putin is now a champion of free speech (at least against other countries' governments), and that Snowden was a Russian...

    To me it's about creating a happier, more equitable society. Pure capitalism does the opposite. Pure socialism stifles initiative, which makes everyone poorer. There's a happy medium in there...
