Germany despite having a much larger population than the UK has over 50,000 fewer deaths.
People are unhappy in those countries, particularly about the vaccine and rightly so. The mystery to me is that people in this country are so supine when in addition to topping the death rates we also have the worst hit economy in the developed world, although of course the damage will only really crystalise when lockdown and furlough ends and Brexit starts to bite.
So, we don't currently have the worst hit economy in the developed world at all and you are just making an assumption here or have I read that wrong?
