Judging by the way wages have dropped since 2008, at latest, it feels as if we're heading for a new era of feudalism.

Definitely needs a TL;DR.

Is this the same chain of Burek King in New Jersey?

I know you are not joking. On top of that Ukraine provides a suitable test bed for weapons research.

We're only now feeling the effects of the water privatisation of a few decades ago along with the selling off of the council houses.

When it was reported on the radio news yesterday they said "jumped into the engine". I cannot find anything else to confirm if that's true. Either way it's horrific.

Yes you certainly have.

For clarity, I have not stated any excuse whatsoever, certainly not for Tories, but rather a reflection on where we are at present, where we could possibly be in the future and what has happened previously.

The realistic prospect of an armed conflict with Russia is what has changed.

Whether we cannot afford it is irrelevant, we may have no choice. We couldn't afford it in 1939 and it wasn't long ago that we'd only finished paying for our WW2 debts.

Unless something drastic happens that Putin comes to his senses we are in most likelihood heading for very dark times.

We're not the only country considering a return to National Service/Conscription.

For a few years now I've thought that the food industry will feature as the next controversy as tobacco has been. Years ago I read an article about High Fructose Corn Syrup, its history and its negative effect on the liver. I can't find the original but this one comes close. Ever since I've avoided HFCS.

We then have hydrogenated fats that are considered bad for the body.

The bottom line is that these ingredients are produced to make food production cheaper but at the expense of a healthy diet. Industry sector lobbying helps these ingredients to the market.
