Spotted the pandemic used car price boom a few months back - the official figures released today now pushing official inflation up are incredible... Would think that when the chip shortage evens out, things should normalise, but no sign of that yet.... https://t.co/S94uqaTTAc

Stalled recovery in July as monthly GDP growth disappoints at +0.1%. Seems to reflect upsurge in cases then tempering impact of full reopening. Supply chain problems & labour shortages also starting to weigh. August/Sep should be better though. But talk of “boom” premature.

Correcting a statistic I gave at the press conference today, 19 July. About 60% of hospitalisations from covid are not from double vaccinated people, rather 60% of hospitalisations from covid are currently from unvaccinated people.
