A short thread about #Finland 🇫🇮&🇸🇪 #Sweden... and the short time left for them to join #NATO.

1) #Russia is about to invade #Ukraine.
2) This will lead to a massive increase of NATO forces in #Poland, #Estonia, #Latvia, and #Lithuania.

1/5
3) Russia's invasion will also result in #Finland & #Sweden requesting to join #NATO.
4) points 2 & 3 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐮𝐧𝐚𝐜𝐜𝐞𝐩𝐭𝐚𝐛𝐥𝐞 for #Russia & Russia will risk everything to prevent these.
5) The easiest way to stop a country from joining NATO is to occupy a part of it.

2/5
6) #Russia's solution is to occupy Sweden's #Gotland.
7) If Russia occupies Gotland then NATO will reject Sweden's bid as accepting it would mean immediate war with Russia.
8) With Sweden's bid rejected #Finland would have to face Russia alone or accept Finlandization again.

Wednesday's #Covid19 megathread makes an early start as there's so much news to bring you!

#Omicron takes centre stage in Europe with a raft of records (recap coming up), but #UK ministers are increasingly confident the NHS won't be swamped despite England's lack of restrictions
It turned out to be a terrible Tuesday, not just in #UK, which was just one of TEN European countries to hit all time high daily #Covid19 infection numbers.

#Cyprus #France #Greece #Iceland #Italy #Malta #Montenegro #Portugal and #Spain the others to set new records.
Concern in #Norway. The #Omicron wave looked to be beyond the peak; is it making a comeback or is it still delayed Christmas cases?
4,702 new #Covid19 infections, fewer than 100 down on last Weds.

Better health data. 315 in hospital, down 13 since y'day, although 120 are in ICU

This is the start of the daily #Covid19 thread for Tuesday.

So despite big increases in cases and hospitalisations, no further restrictions for #England. How bad will the data be today? We'll find out later and I'll update and analyse all the data worldwide as often as possible:
Boris has urged you all to be cautious in the packed bars and nightclubs on New Year's Eve, so that's ok then!

First to South America where #Argentina has just topped 20,000 new #Covid19 cases in a day for the first time since July.

20,263 is the daily total, up 280% compared with the week before.
31 deaths.

Monday's #Covid19 thread starts here. Still holidays around the world for many, including #UK. But here all eyes on Boris Johnson - will he, or won't he make more restrictions or even lockdown? We should know today.

I've got more hospital data in the thread, updated real time..
So let me start with #UK. I've managed to get new health data, which will be critical to the decision on new restrictions in #England

As of y'day there were 7,536 #Covid19 patients in English hospitals; up 17.1% in a week.

But 2,425 of those are in London and that's up 45.5%
Strangely, South-East & South-West areas of #England have fewer #Covid19 patients in hospital.

Occupied hospital beds by region (weekly change):

#London 2,425 +46%
#Midlands 1,345 +17%
#East 681 +16%
#NorthWest 945 +8%
#Yorkshire/NE 847 +3%
#SouthEast 803 -2%
#SouthWest 490 -5%

We celebrate our independence today in #Finland . We broke free from the Russian empire on the 6 December, 1917.

Okay, time for another thread on everyone's favourite topic - the real cost of #F35 and can #Finland afford it in #HXhanke. The reason is that the Norwegian budget and Swiss acquisition costs are out, and they have caused quite a stir. 1/x #turpo=#säkpol
The Swiss number caused quite a stir, including talk about the aircraft having gone up 20% in cost since the decision was made. I don't quite get those figures, but an increase of 17% (5.07 Bn CHF to 5.95 Bn CHF). 2/x vbs.admin.ch/content/vbs-in…
A key detail here is that the exchange rate of USD to CHF has grown somewhat worse for the Swiss since February when the original figures came in, so I get an increase in USD of 13%. Still bad, but not quite on par with the dreaded 20% figure. 3/x

Today I and a banker I was with were removed from Pompier, a restaurant in central Helsinki in lunch time. The reason? We did not have c-passes.

I have never lived under segregation, but now I can confirm that we are in bizarre historical time loop in #Finland . 1/6
I would like to remind those, who claim that these actions bare no comparisons to the atrocities conducted in Nazi Germany on two historical facts.

In 1935-36 Jews were banned from parks, restaurants and swimming pools. Passport for Jews to travel abroad were restricted. 2/
In 1938, Jews were excluded from cinemas, theatres, concerts, exhibitions, beaches and holiday resorts. Special identity cards were issued to Jews.

What is quite amazing is how fast things are moving now. While it took the Nazis several years to get to the point... 3/

On Sunday, I am likely to become a second-rated citizen in my country. Then the new strict restrictions against the un-vaccinated should take force.

All the bars and clubs that serve my kind will have to close by 6pm. I will not be able to access the restaurant car... 1/4
...if I travel by train. My kind are still able to go to shops and cafeterias, but I am sure that that right will be taken away shortly.

Soon, the plan is, that my kind will not be able to go to work anymore. Later our rights to move freely could be taken away. 2/
This story could have been written by a Jew in Nazi-Germany in 1933 fearing what would come by 1939, but it's not.

🇬🇧Let's have a look at GRO deaths figures for #England & #Wales.
No bias, no manipulation, just a division into semesters.
Thanks to vaccination, excess #mortality was expected to disappear or at least collapse, but…🧐

And yes, because there are spectacular peaks, forgetting the depressions that follow (harvest effect) and then the excesses that accumulate week after week and which hurt the population, silently…
What about other UK nations?
#Scotland #NorthIreland
The excess is quadrupled!

OTD in 1959, after taking a shot from Andy Bathgate in the nose, Jacques Plante leaves the game & returns wearing a mask.

This is a (mega) thread to Plante & to the mask wearers who followed. Some great goalies/masks do not appear & some appear more than once.

Which #OECD countries have lowered #electricity #emissions? How did they do it, at what pace, at what price?

My 4th round of 4-country profiles: #Austria #Finland, #Italy & #USA

For comparison, I now also include price & emissions average (AVG) from full 24-country sample!

🧵
First off, Austria, with ample hydro resources (70%), resulting in whole-period low emissions, well below 24-country AVG
Remaining oil & coal now replaced with non-hydro renewables & gas, further lowering emissions
Prices have tracked AVG prices, with increase last 15 years Image
Finland reduced emissions intensity by 70% in 8 years due to nuclear rollout of late-1970s. Went from AVG to low emissions, maintaining below-AVG prices.

Emissions have stayed below AVG with stable nuclear & hydro stable, supplemented by non-hydro renewables recently. Image

1/ Yesterday, #Canada’s prime minister & prince of blackface @JustinTrudeau announced that all Canadians must be fully va__inated in order to travel via plane, train & boat. The @liberal_party is implementing fascism style segregation. Why are they doing this?

#cdnpoli #ontario
2/ The main reason why is because well, their va__ine mandates are just not working, so they need to take away more freedoms & rights from Canadians.

Va__ine passport policy started
Sept 1st in #Quebec & Sept 20th in #Ontario, but va__ination rate has been on the decline since
3/ The va__ine passport policy in #BC has also shown no effect on lowering CV19 cases. BC started started their va__ine passports on Sept 13th, but their CV19 cases have been spiking & reaching significantly high levels regardless of va__ine mandates

Thursday's #Coronavirus megathread starts here with the best #Covid19 global analysis and round up available on Twitter.

First a little quiz, answer in the next Tweet:
Do you know which country has had the most recorded cases of Covid19 as a percentage of population?
So I hope there was no cheating... I'll leave some blank lines here too in case some later viewers don't want the answer just yet...

.
So the nation with more #Covid19 cases than any other based on population is highly vaccinated #Seychelles at more than 20% infected.
Today I spent quite a long time being filmed/interviewed by @bbcturkce about #Covid19 and #Turkey. Not sure how much they will use, let's see.

Coincidentally the cameraman Efe, just happened to be in Kyiv as one of those using Ukraine for a 10 day stop off to avoid hotel prison!

Because of the early start I missed a few countries from yesterday's thread, first I'll update these #Covid19 totals. Tweets during the day may be delayed due to travel & connectivity issues
