    All actions about protecting the west is based upon the assumption that the infected entering a country are unknowingly or unintentionally bringing the virus into that country.
    What if is the opposite should occur?

    It would be interesting to find out if those European nations approaching 20%-30% unemployment use the same methodology as the USA in determining the unemployment rate.

    When 7 billion humans start to go feral after the bursting of the greatest credit fueled ponzi scheme in history, no amount money will save you.
    The first to slavery will be the 99%. The first to the guilotine will be the 1%.

    Our overflow drains as surface run-off down our block and through the rear block (which is vacant) into the roadside drain. Should building start on the rear block then I will install an underground drainage pipe (100mm diametre) and discharge the water formally into the council drain.
    I know the owners of the rear block are deep in debt.
    If Stoneleigh is right then that block could soon be on the market at a greatly reduced price. I live in Melbourne, Australia, and our property bust has just began.
    My plan is to buy the block and turn it into a large vegetable garden.

    Forgot to mention that the planter boxes treat our waste water. Water from the toilet goes into one planter box via a septic tank which is used to irrigate ‘above ground’ fruit and veges. The water from washing goes into the other planter box where it is then used to irrigate root crops.

    We also live on a small block (900 square metres) and are currently building a cost effective, simple system of harvesting water from the gravel road out the front.
    When it rains, water flows down the road at quite a pace. I have dug a small channel diverting it into trench running down the side of our house. The trench is plastic lined and filled with course sand and fine gravel which filters the water. It collects into a sump pit where it is then pumped into a 20,000 litre holding tank to be finally used watering the vege garden when times are dry.
    We also have planter boxes 3mx3m and 600mm high, plastic lined and filled with sand and gravel and planted out with plenty of reeds and ferns. This water is also collected after filtration and bacterial break down and used for irrigation. Water is transfered to the garden using gravity.
    We use zero mains water.
    Water for household consumption is collected from the roof of our house.
    Of course, the local Council know nothing of this.
