Trapper, in the UK small businesses were going down the tubes because it was made easier to shop at places such as "Amazon".
Well as per usual those kind of businesses have began to raise their prices and in addition they have another addition you know as "Prime". and the rise in delivery to boot. Not forgetting paying enough tax.
Well they have just lost the trust of the brits so the tide will turn. Convenience plus people of lower income will be the first to start their demise. Britain was once known as a nation of shop keepers, however the small shop in the UK is almost a thing of the past. It has cost us meeting our friends and relatives socialising etc.
Super food stores was a blessing simply because of population. Now with this virus we don't now know how things will turn out, I just hope our government get a grip and get rid of these philanderers that are trying to turn us into communist type way of life.
Your article spells out some of what I think and I hope you get through it, your ongoing disparities with China is coming to and end . Those people are trying to rub your faces into the dirt, you must indeed trash them, teach them a lesson they wont forget. They are travelling round the world and taking land irrespective what the bastards say for they have bred like mice and have 1.3 billion to feed so watch your backs.
