No, I don't want that outcome, as I don't want to be "crowing" when half of us might be dead, including my own family.

Best case scenario is that you're all laughing at me in two years. I'll take that, genuinely. I'll even laugh with you.

Worst case scenario is total anarchy, in which only the strongest will prevail and they'll steal everyone's assets and food. But it ain't necessarily going to get that bad, so holding alternative assets such as the precious metals and crypto might indeed be your salvation. I've also just planted a load of veg in my back garden. You've just gotta do whatever you can to get you through this, which is what I'm doing.

At the end of the day I don't really care about myself. I'm doing what I'm doing for my family and saying what I'm saying for you. In two years time if I look like a daft twat, then I'll apologise and encourage you all to take the piss. But if in two years time half of you are dead because you didn't do a fucking thing, I'll come back crying and scorning.



Plot twist: half the population didn't die. I'm not going to say that makes you look like a daft twat, but it's interesting that in 'two years' you came back.... contending that you were completely right.
