    Of course it is, All Governments over the years have "Skewed" the figures to make that headline rate low, Can't remember the way they use to calculate back in the day but it was changed at various times.

    God no, The figure has to be much higher, Its there way of dealing with Covid 3 years on which is strange, While virtually the rest of the world are now "Living with Covid" The Chinese are still using this draconian way like in the very early days of it, We don't have any way to confirm the...

    Covid

    It is indeed, Perhaps they get their figures differently than us? There is a huge difference in the Covid deaths reported in this country, What i mean is those that died WITH Covid and those that died FROM Covid, Here you could be struck down by a bus and have Covid in your body and it was...

    Covid

    The thing for me is that they're up there with the US economically wise but Xi's policy is destroying that, Like if one person at their huge factories get Covid the workers are locked in, No question asked they just do it, This could seriously undermine things and send their economy back...

    Covid

    China's mad "Zero Covid" policy is being blamed for the death of at least 10 people in a block of flats in the City of Urumqi. Because of this policy if one person is tested positive the whole Block/Street/City gets locked down and this was said to be the cause of the deaths because people...

    Perhaps a bit more time in local politics while holding down a job would have been better rather than being an MP at 25ish?

    WC 2022 Yay or "Meh"

    We all know that, I was sick of Brazil always being top even though they weren't winning much but that is how the groups are determined and we play in groups relating to those rankings so England play only what's in front of you so its not "Luck" they've been close at recent competitions.

    WC 2022 Yay or "Meh"

    The draw itself is totally random, Its where the ranking balls go into the pot that might need to be looked at, Take our group in this WC, All the teams in it are top 20 ranked, Do you think they're all worth that ranking?

    WC 2022 Yay or "Meh"

    Wales, As was in the late 90's/Early 2000's they had Giggs as their Talisman but he was very "Choosy" about the games he played for Wales, Its the same this time with Bale, Take both out of each Welsh team and you have a Championship team at best, Bale doesn't perform nor does Wales.

    WC 2022 Yay or "Meh"

    You can only beat what's in front of you, As for "Luck of the draw" You'll have to ask UEFA/FIFA to change their ranking system to make them different.
