Re: Coronavirus

Well, there you go. No one knows anything concrete. Assumptions can only be made on the data of what has happened over the last six months. However, data can be interpreted in many ways and even collecting it can be fraught with margins of error. As for the news about the car plant in Spain closing ...

Re: Coronavirus

Oh my god!! Do you really believe all that or are you winding us all up? Believe what, Mark? That there is something very strange going on? Well, yes and so do about 95% of people on the planet. Do you not think it strange that we still do not know where this virus came from and what it is made of ...

Re: Coronavirus

There is certainly something very, very strange going on and all the parts of the puzzle do not add up to a whole picture. That the Wuhan scientists mysteriously 'died' after blowing the whistle on the virus is not surprising. However, some of what is going on in places such as the 'Land of the Free...

As an aside, what is happening to my 'quotes' options? They seem a bit weird.

Re: Made in China

The losers would be those being exploited. I cannot agree with this, Olive. Trafficked sex-workers, for example, would be the losers if everyone just carried on as normal. Self-employment in small groups of women funded by credit-free start-ups in India have proved that exploitation CAN be tackled....

Re: Made in China

Maybe the answer is for a massive overhaul of taxes and of who pays what. Business rates/taxes etc and the cost of employing someone etc. It all seems such a complicated muddle. That's not just true in Spain, either. In fact, while Governments phaff about with trivia why don't they sort out the fund...

Re: Coronavirus

There's some sort of meeting for governments in Extemadura tomorrow to ask central government if we can move through the phases quickly as we are a low infection/mortality area. In spite of that the swimming pools and natural pools will not be open this year, it seems. The August fiestas also look d...

Re: Made in China

<t>Slave labour, in fact. Yes, I agree as, in some cases, it is private enterprise. We have seen examples of multimillionaires furloughing their people during the Covid-19 panic and putting their hands out for tax-payers money. In other words, money their workers pay in tax but they pay nothing them...

Re: Coronavirus

I just had coffee in the churrería in my village. Six tables outside, well-spaced. No one inside. One person per table wearing a mask goes inside to order, pay and bring the order to the table. In between people using a table the owner comes out, masked and gloved, and disinfects everything. Each of...

I simply cannot support buying things made in that country, knowing the conditions under which the workers work. The profits and money to be made prop up ...

Re: Made in China

Tricky. If they were illegal asylum seekers, political refugees or economic migrants then a person would have to sort out their moral stances on that one.

Re: Coronavirus

I would just like to visit my parents, stay all Summer, then come home. I think some people on this forum are in similar positions. If it were not for my parents i would not be going anywhere. Why would I, when I live in a wonderful place and have been on holiday 24/7 for the last 15 years.

Re: Coronavirus

As for the Spanish government, it is becoming scared stiff of the increasing number of demonstrations and demands for its resignation as well as disarray in its own ranks. The population will become even more restless with the unreasonable demand that it wears masks in public places as temperatures...

Re: Made in China

Actually, Gordon, I do know that what I am writing is full of holes. It sounds like I am happy to have had all the advantages that I do not want other people to have, but I don't feel like that. If Western companies have their products Made in China then they should ensue that their Chinese workers ...

Re: Made in China

All is well with us here, thank you, and I hope all is well with you. We have had so much rain this Spring that Roger's vegetable garden is the best it has been for years. I agree that people should have opportunities to improve their education and lifestyles. I did. However, we can only evaluate 'i...

The Germans have no been too badly affected by the virus so maybe Germans will be allowed in but not other people from other countries?

Re: Made in China

Hola Gordon. Always nice to hear the views of others. I apologise if my comments on villages and vegetables came across as arrogant. For me that is something good and fine to aspire to as people like to eat three times a day, if they can. Growing healthy, organic vegetables is something that every m...

Re: Coronavirus

If you watch the link that Beachcomber posted there is some cause to think the virus has passed its peak and is declining naturally.
