It's definitely an eye opening, brow furrowing, head scratcher.
That's for darned sure.
If more come to pass in the next month or so, I don't even know what I'll think. No doubt along the same path I do now: do I really really truly want to know? Something huge is brewing and I'm not sure if it's going to affect those in the money or all of the people as a whole. What ever 'it' is, it must be worth taking ones own life - or being killed and making them all look like suicides. No matter what is going on, it has to be pretty downright awful.
So what warrants them being killed if that's the case? What do they all know and have in common etc which would cause someone higher up to want to silence them permanently? And it's not even being hidden - we all find out about it and most people will notice hey, all these suicides? What's up?
And on another side of the many sided coin: So what warrants them killing themselves? What do they know which would cause them to want to take their own lives - and in this possible case, their daughter and wife?
Odd odd odd odd odd.
Now there's a pretty faulty argument if I ever saw one. Statistics don't really work the way you're portraying them here.
The WHO estimates that approximately 1 million people per year commit suicide. Or 16 per 100,000.
The financial services industry in the UK employs 1,045,500 people.
By these numbers if suicide were spread evenly across the population, you would expect over 160 bankers to be killing themselves in the UK alone in the space of a year.
Therefore the only conclusion is that the financial services sector is *significantly* less prone to suicide than other sectors, and there is absolutely zero evidence of any sort of wave of bankers killing themselves because they know something bad is coming.
but TPTB will just try to say we're all crazy....12 suicides in the financial sector...and only the "tin foils" "notice" a link....crazy
