My friend David Amess connected with everyone. We must not hide away | Lindsay Hoyle

The Speaker of the House of Commons, Sir Lindsay Hoyle, has demanded “an end to hatred” against MPs and a kinder form of political discourse following the fatal stabbing of Sir David Amess, as evidence mounts of the shocking scale of intimidation and threats suffered daily by elected politicians and their staff.

In a highly unusual intervention for a Commons Speaker, Hoyle makes the appeal as he writes in the Observer. He describes the late Tory MP and father of five as a friend who would regularly drop into his office for a chat, and as “a man who found a connection with everyone, no matter their background”.

אפקט הקורונה: נמשך הזינוק במכירות מוצרי חשמל לבית

מי שחשב שהקורונה מאחורינו, יגלה שההרגלים שרכשנו במהלך הסגרים (בישראל מרבית מגבלות התנועה הוסרו כבר בחודש מרץ 2021), נמצאים עדיין עמנו, למשל בתחום ההשקעה בבית. אולי זו השהייה הארוכה בבתים במהלך חודשים ארוכים ב-2020 ותחילת 2021, ואולי זו העובדה שלמרות השחרור ההדרגתי מההגבלות, חו"ל לא הפך לאופציה זמינה - לא רק עבור רוב הישראלים, אלא עבור כלל אוכלוסיית העולם. מכל מקום, תהיה הסיבה אשר תהא, נתונים של חברת המחקר GfK חושפים כי נרשמה עלייה של 21% במכירות של מוצרי חשמל קטנים ועלייה של 31% במכירות של מכשירי חשמל גדולים (לבנים) בהשוואה לשנת 2020. GfK צופה שעד תום השנה, סך המכירות ממכשירי חשמל לבית יגיע להיקף של 362 מיליארד דולר. מדובר בעלייה של 8% בהשוואה ל-2020, המשקפת שיא חדש בהיקפי המכירות העולמיים. הסיבה לעלייה הגדולה במכירות מכשירי חשמל לבית היא השהייה הממושכת בבתים בשל הסגרים והחשש מהדבקות בנגיף. השהייה הרבה בבית יצרה ביקוש גבוה למכשירי חשמל טובים יותר שיספקו את הצרכנים שהגבירו בתקופה זו את השימוש בתנורי אפייה ובמכונות ומייבשי כביסה, שטפו יותר כלים באמצעות מדיח הכלים והעדיפו מקררים גדולים יותר שיאחסנו את כל המזון שאגרו בבית. בשל ההתכנסות לתוך הבית, העדיפו הצרכנים מכשירים איכותיים וטכנולוגיים בעלי קיבולת גדולה ומוצרים השומרים על היגיינה. הנתונים מצביעים על עלייה של 36% ברכישת מקררים Side By Side וזינוק של 33% ברכישת מקררים עם יותר מארבעה דלתות. בנוסף, מכונות כביסה עם פונקציית קיטור נמכרו כמעט פי שניים מהשנה הקודמת.
