We hope you all had an excellent Christmas break. Back to business as usual.
The Euro is in trouble, reports that Italy had enjoyed a respite from it's economic woes after a very successful debt auction turned out to be widly exaggerated. Elsewhere Iran threatened to cut off the west's main oil supply route and North Korea's new leader threatened to cut off the head of anyone who did not appear sufficiently grief stricken during the period of official mourning for his dear old Dad Kim Jong Il.
But you don't want to read such dross today so here's a story about the yellow peril. We're not being racist here, this yellow peril is intelligent slime that can think like humans (i.e. it's about a billion times more intelligent than the computers that are supposed to be able to almost think like humans).
At Hakodate, northern Japanwhere the rather ambitiously named Future University can be found, Professor Toshiyuki Nakagaki has cultivated intelligent slime in petri dishes and claims he has discovered how the brainless organism is capable of finding its way out of a maze.
According to Prof. Nakagaki the slime is able to organise its cells to create the most direct route through a maze in order to reach a source of food.
Wow, that's amazing you might well think but pause for a moment and consider how resourceful lower life forms are at finding food sources. We are not talking about cats or squirrels here, nor even chavs, but really low life forms such as algae.. There are algae that can live in places without light, deep caves for example. There are algae that have adapted to survive the near boiling temeratures of volcanic springs the better to exploit the rich supply og nutrients bubbling up from the bowels of the earth. There are bateria that have found their niche in human bowels and survive there even after the host organism (someone like you, maybe) has eaten a very hot curry. Life at its loweest level is very resilitent and the survival instingct is strong.
"Humans are not the only living things with information-processing abilities," Prof. Nakagaki said. "Simple creatures can solve certain kinds of difficult puzzles. If you want to spotlight the essence of life or intelligence, it's easier to use these simple creatures."
So do these findings about food seeking slime highlight how slime mould possesses information processing abilities shared by humans which are far more sophisticated than the most advanced computers? According to Professor Nakagaki they do. Clearly the Professor has never ventured into the kitchen of a house whose occupiers hygiene standards were lax. I recommend watching a few episodes of Kim and Aggie the celebrity cleaning ladies.

The War On Christmas
There are two wars on Christmas: one public and baloney, one conceptual and terrifying. The first usually involves a group of Scrooge - like atheists (who claim to be secular humanists although their ideal world would be populated by unthinking droids whose idea of a good time is doing mathematics) Bah! Humbug! they say at all our Christmas traditions as they try to ban nativity scenes (Christian), Christmas light displays (Hindu, pagan) Christmas Trees (North European pagan) tasty treats and excessive boozing (Celtic pagan) and trying to ruin everybodys fun on the grounds that one persons fun is bound to be offensive to someone, somewhere.
Take this story from Santa Monica, California (the global capital of politically correct craziness). For decades Palisades Park has displayed the traditional religious tableaux at Christmas the Virgin and Child, the three wise men, shepherds etc, all the mixed myths BTW if you want to know how the Ox, the Ass, the goat and the eagle got in on the act. Take a look at Chapter 1 in the Old Testament book of Ezekiel.) Back to idiocy of California. This year a lottery was introduced to allow other groups to compete for space at Palisades Park to put on displays relevant to their mid - winter festival. Unbelievably a bunch of militant atheists won and were permitted to put up images of Satan, Jesus and Father Christmas, with the tagline: 37 million Americans know a myth when they see one
What myths do you see?
Boggart Blog sees four, the aforementioned three (apologies if you are a Christian, a Satanist or aged under 6) and the one represented by the bunch of twunts responsible for this smug, pompous piece of idiocy trying to deny that science and atheism are not a religion to them.
Not only is their fanatical and dogmatic belief in The Protocols Of Science a giveaway but their interpretation of atheism as requiring from it's followers a pathological hated of all other religions put them among the most extreme and dangerous of fanatical cults. California is of course the centre of this madness but under the leadership of The Evil Emperor Obama killjoyism and fuckwitted control freakery is speading.
In a South Carolina cancer center, a 67-year-old volunteer Santa was evicted because of the different cultures and beliefs of the patients we care for."
In an elementary school in Stockton, California, the traditional Christmas houseplant, poinsettias were banned but somehow snowmen were permitted; the discrimination was justified by saying there was a Sikh temple in the city and the Sikhs might have been offended. Notice a pattern here? Nobody has actually complained they they were offended by these traditional things, is is merely the sad, lonely, miserable pokenoses and control freaks of the militant atheist politically correct thought police who have taken upon themselves to protect minorities from the possibility that they might be offended. Ironically the minorities are more likely to be offended by the usurpation by the Thought Police of these groups right to decide for themselves what offends their principles.
For us to get overheated about this sort of thing is exactly what the perps want. The kind of sad dysfunctional loner with personal hygiene issues and a passion for theoretical physics, who can find time among all their hectic social round of chatting with their alter ego on Facebook or Twitter, reading science books, playing round the clock sessions of World of Warcraft online to take part in protests against a display of poinsettias as an affront to multicultural tolerance probably spends Christmas horribly alone and is simply as desperate for attention as they are clueless about how to attract it. The best thing to do is to ignore them. Or, if the fall asleep in your house, bored by all the jollity, good cheer, bad jokes and over indulgence you could write Merry Christmas, you miserable fucker on their forehead (don't forget the mirror image effect) in indelible felt tip.
Well I'm off to deck the halls with boughs of Holly (pagan) light the Yule log (pagan) hang Miseltoe in the doorway (very pagan), give a couple of quid to the Carol Singers (Christianish) and have a little smooch with V.K. (Hindu) while my wife is not looking. Merry Multicultural Christmas everyone.

After a year marked by partisan squabbling, Republicans and Democrats in the American congress were at loggerheads on Wednesday over how to extend a cut in payroll tax introduced last year for more than 150m Americans.
HSBC Bank (the world's second largest) said failure to extend the tax will cut growth in the US economy by 0.5pc in 2012, a year in which Wall Street was planning on the economy expanding by 2.2pc.
With a likely European recession already casting a shadow over Asia, many were looking to the USA to play a bigger role in driving global growth next year. This was always a wish rather than a realistic ambition given the systemic problems in the American economy and the inability of a government enmired in ideological puritanism to address them.
The paralysis in Washington comes alongside mixed data from the US housing market. Sales of existing homes rose 4.4pc in November compared with October, the National Association of Realtors (NAR) said, adding to the better news on homebuilding activity that cheered investors on Tuesday. However, the NAR also revised down figures for the amount of homes sold between 2007 and 2010.
While growth is stalling - and what growth there is largely illusory while ilflation is running ahead of the increae in GDP which means that in real terms the US economy is contracting - the real jobless figures are a bigger concern for the Obama administration. The American government, like the British government, massages figures by only counting people claiming jobseekers allowance and dropping the long term unemployed whose approx. two year entitlement to the higher benefit have expired and who therefore are deemed for statistical purposes as no longer seeking work.
While this keeps the headlines figure lower than the real number of jobless it no longer fools the public. Only a couple of weeks ago a British television network screened a documentary, perhaps in response to Obama's sniping at EU leaders about the ongoing crisis in the European economy. "President" Obama has been trying to blame Europe for the world's economic ills and pretend America's problems are nothing to do with the loonytoons economic policies pursued by his administration.
The documentary showed stock footage of inner city decay in places like Detroit and the industrial cities of Pennsylvania and Ohio, the hopelessness descending to despair of the inhabitants of tents cities some of whom had had homes repossessed, others who had simply walked away from the ruins of their former lives.
We should regard any positive economic news with the deepest suspicion. As The Daily Stirrer reported last week, even the Chinese economic bubble is bursting now.

A wave of 16 bombings ripped across Baghdad Thursday, killing at least 69 people in the worst violence in Iraq for months. The apparently coordinated attacks struck days after the last American forces left the country and in the midst of a major government crisis between Shiite and Sunni politicians that has sent sectarian tensions soaring.

Healthy Active Girl Branded Obese by the Thought Police
by Xavier Connolly
The parents of a healthy and active seven-year-old girl have been left angered after health chiefs warned she was borderline obese. Libbie Boardman, a budding gymnast, was weighed and measured as part of a pilot scheme in Bolton, Greater Manchester. The schoolgirl, who is 4ft 2in tall and weighs 5st 5lb, was described as being at the top end of the overweight category by neo - Nazi penpushers working for the NHS Bolton, bordering on clinically obese.
Libbie has a body mass index (BMI) centile of 97. Between 91 and 97 is overweight, and 98 and above is clinically obese. She had her height and weight measured by NHS staff to calculate their BMI as part of a scheme to crackdown on childhood obesity. We asked were the fascist nut jobs responsible for this program safe to be let out among school childred. An NHS spokesman assured us they are all clinically sane.
The test results have left Libbie's family, who live in Bolton, Greater Manchester, shocked and angry. They say the results are the results are misleading as Libbie is an active child who excels at gymnastics. "I do not know how they can say she is overweight. If you look at her, you will say 'where the heck have they got that from?'," said father Paul, 43.
"I have taken her to the doctors and was told the numbers are right, but they told me not to worry or do anything because she is fine. They are just numbers and statistics, they don't take into account the individual or look at other things such as the child's build."
What Mr. Boardman is missing here is that as far as neo - Nazi scientists and control freak NHS bureaucrats are concerned there are no individuals, only statistics.
Mr Boardman reported he was obsession with body mass index could be dangerous and children may worry about their weight unneccesarily.
He added: "Libbie has been saying things like she does not want any tea. But I said 'don't be silly'. She eats a balanced diet with rice and pasta. She doesn't have junk food, just the odd treat now and again."
It is understood that there have been at other complaints about this control freak scheme from parents of children at Highfield Primary School, where Libbie attends. The initiative was launched in a bid to tackle the high obesity rate in parts of the town - one in three youngsters are overweight when they reach the age of 11. Results are sent home to parents detailing if their child is a healthy weight, underweight, overweight or very overweight, and parents are given advice to address this.
Health chiefs defended the programme and stressed the need for action to tackle childhood obesity in Bolton. But they admitted the results could prove misleading for some children. A spokesman for NHS Bolton said: "The Department of Health has recommended that Body Mass Index (BMI) is the most appropriate way to judge a child's weight. Once again we see an illustration of fuckwit scientists being unable to see human beings as diverse individuals.

Britain's Fishing Industry Angry As EU Stabs Fishermen In The Back
by Ian R Thorpe
Under new EU fishing rules the British fishing fleet will be allowed to catch bigger quotas but it faces an estimated 15 to 25 per cent cut in the number of days at sea following a marathon negotiation session which ended at dawn on Saturday in Brussels. As a result of the deal the UKs fleet will be forced to spend more time in port than ever before.
The new rules will make it almost imposible for trawlers to take advantage of some big rises in fish catch quotas agreed following the success of conservation measures in British waters. Britain resisted the moves to cut fishing boats days at sea to just four a fortnight next year, in exchange for greater national fish conservation efforts. But boats will still be confined to ports for longer than before.
The number of days each vessel is allowed out will be cut from 105 days a year to 90, though vessels will be able to 'buy back' extra days by avoiding cod fishing as part of tougher environmental protection measures.

"Tesco Tax" The First Step Towards Saving Our Towns
When Northern Ireland Finance Minister Sammy Wilson announced his "Tesco Tax" a planned levy on big stores intended to underwrite tax breaks for small, independent businesses and go some way towards redressing the balance after small shops were forced during thirteen years of Labour misrule to fund tax breaks offered to entice global retail corporations to set up shop in out of town big shed developments he expected a reaction from the corporate retailers. He did not however expect such a hypocritical outbreak of orchestrated whining considering Labour's favouritism to the retail giants has resulted in up to a third of shops in some traditional town centres standing empty.
pedlers of crap, tat and overpriced kitsch furniture giant Ikea claimed the minister had potentially put hundreds of jobs at risk and was hindering other stores coming to NI. Sorry, but we don't remember IKEA shedding any tears over the jobs lost in local retailers when they grabbed the subsidies and local tax reductions offered to open their shops.
Mr Wilson said he had listened to what the big retailers had to say and had cut the tax they would have to pay. "The levy has been reduced from 20% to 15% saving Ikea Ł70,000," he said.
Pity, that, he should have hit them with an extra levy for having the nerve to whine. The so-called "Tesco tax" has been fiercely opposed by most large retailers who said it could limit investment and cost jobs. On average big retailers will pay an extra charge of Ł66,000 a year, raising Ł5m. It will affect 76 large shops. Well Ł66,000 a year is peanuts compared to what these hyper stores make so you have no need to feel sorry for them. Let's explode a forty year old myth to put the whinging in perspective. It has long been the case in mainsteam media to toe the government propaganda (Ministy of Truth) line that when a new hyperstore opens hundreds of jobs are created, (you've heard the announcements on local news). Nobody ever quantifies how many jobs are lost from small businesses that can no longer survive.
The finance minister argued that the "Tesco tax" is designed to help small businesses. "The whole aim is to create a more level playing field. It is about what we do to stimulate the small business end of the economy," he said. Good, in spite of the fuckwiited windbaggery about level playing fields from Tony Blair and other Labour leaders for too long small businesses were playing up an ever steepening slope as The Peoples' Party helped the people who are most generous; billionaires, tycoons, bankers, lawyers and speculators.
Think back to the report from Mary Portas on high street shops published earlier this week, the harm done to small businesses and communities by corporate friendly government policies and bureaucratic smothering of startup enterprises was highlighted there. And it is not recent, this cosyness between elected politicians, gravy train riding tax eaters and greedy corporate execs has gone on for decades. More recently they have been attacking local employers by enacting measures aimed at pushing business online.
On the whole any news that suggest government is trying to get itself out of the pockets of big business is to be welcomed.

China's Credit Bubble Bursts - Just As The Daily Stirrer Predicted.
by John de Roe
China's credit bubble has burst spectacularly, just asd The Dasily Stirrer predicted it would. In xxxxx we said hopes expressed by the Obama administration in the US and by the unelected bureaucrats who run the EU that the Chinese might step in to buy up Euro zone toxic debt were delusional because China's economic boom would turn to bust by the end of the year.
It is never easy to get reliable information on what is happening in China but when the country's Homelink property website reports that new home prices in Beijing fell 35pc in November from the month before something is very wrong. If this is remotely true, the soft-landing planned by Chinese government economists has fallen of the rails and risks charging out of control into recession, dragging the nation behind it.
Chinese stocks have been blinking alarm messages since May this year . The Shanghai index has fallen 30pc since then and is now 60pc below its peak in 2008, almost as much as Wall Street sank from 1929 to 1933.
"Investors are massively underestimating the risk of a hard-landing in China and other BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China)... alternatively 'Bloody Ridiculous Investment Concept' in my view," said Albert Edwards at Societe Generale.
"The BRICs are dropping like bricks and the crises are home-blown, caused by their own boom-bust credit cycles and fall in demand from western consumers these economies depended on.. Industrial production is already falling in India, and Brazil will soon follow."
"There is so much spare capacity that they may soon have to start dumping goods, risking a deflation shock for the rest of the world. It is not surpising that China has just imposed tariffs on imports of cars. I think it is highly likely that China will devalue the yuan next year, risking a trade war," he said.
China's $3.2 trillion foreign reserves have been falling for three months, market data shows, despite the trade surplus. Money is flowing out of the country. "One-way capital inflow or one-way bets on a yuan rise have become history. Our foreign reserves are basically falling every day," Li Yang, a former central bank rate-setter said in a press release.
Fitch Ratings said China is hooked on credit, but deriving ever less punch from each dose. An extra dollar in loans increased GDP by $0.77 in 2007. It is $0.44 in 2011. "The reality is that China's economy today requires significantly more financing to achieve the same level of growth as in the past," said China analyst Charlene Chu.
Diabetes Blogger Censored By Web - For Beating DiabetesLittle Nicky is not a health blogger so when blogs about health related topics come up it is usually in relation to the politicisation of health. The censorship of blogger Steve Cooksey shows political and business interests curtiailing free speech on the web but also reveals that search engine giant Google and other big players like Facebook have developed far to cosy a relationship with government and big business and that is not healthy for us as individuals..

Parecetamol poisoning is a nasty way to die
By Andrew M Brown, Daily Telegraph
There is a very sad story in the paper and on the website today about a young woman who accidentally poisoned herself with paracetamol. Desiree Phillips, 20, seems to have suffered a staggered overdoses of paracetamol over the course of a few days during which she may have exceeded the recommended dose, but possibly not by much.
This case illustrates how dangerous this common medicine is, and I have every sympathy for Miss Phillips and her family and anyone else in this appalling situation. Research on patients suffering paracetamol-induced liver injury has actually shown that those who took staggered overdoses over the course of a few days were a third more likely to die than those who took a single overdose, as part of a suicide attempt, for example.
Paracetamol is a nasty drug. You may poison yourself by mistake, but by the time you start feeling unwell you may be approaching the end of the (roughly) three-day window in which the antidote, acetylcysteine, can save you. Would-be suicides may take a handful of pills expecting to drift into a pleasant sleep, only to find that nothing happens. By the next day they may well have changed their minds about killing themselves but it's too late: the drug, by then, is already doing its best to destroy their liver.

What the death of Michael Jackson says about us all
Are potatoes the new prozac
Tories embrace Labour government poke nose strategy

Dave has today revealed plans to create another Politically Correct Thought Police hit squad, the problem families and fat children unit. The new squad will work closely with the alcohol abuse team which will be doubled in size and given the power to physically abuse anyone suspected of even thinking about having a drink and also with the SALT (Sodium Adders Legal Termination ) team who will kill anybody found putting salt on food, the tenth hand cigarette smoke protection squad, responsible for arresting anyone who exhales in a public place after being in a room with someone who had been in a room with someone who had been in a room with someone who had been in a room with someone who was smoking a cigarette and other special units responsible for policing any outbreaks of tasty food, loud music, possibly offensive joke telling and the anti - individualism unit .
What we are looking at is taxpayer -funded campaign aimed at stopping the taxpayers who democratically elected the democratic government from doing anything a small, unelected and unrepresentative cabal of academics, experts, bureaucrats and self appointed guardians of the national morals do not approve of. These Government box-ticking exercises only serve to piss off the electorate and alienate the populace even more from the self styled elite. Every social problem identified or imagined by the chatterati is deemed to require government solution and, because government solution is a contradiction in terms, then government interference and meddling is substituted. And if no particular social problem is offering itself as being in need of a government solution, dont worry, The Politically Correct Thought Police will make a few up.
The first thing to notice about this obsession of paid employees (rather than elected representatives who meekly do as they are told) of the state with micro managing all our doings is that it doesnt work. As soon as the government started to hassle us about alcohol consumption we had a binge drinking problem where previously we had had a small percentage of boozers who knew they were killing themselves and didn't care.Before the government started worrying about our consumption of saturated fat we had as many fat people as thin people. Now anyone who is not so undernourished they can be diagnosed anorexic is clinically obese, morbidly obese (dead fat) or in danger of becoming obese. The fact is none of these campaigns to change our behaviour actually work If they did the perceived problems would have been solved by now instead of coming back time after time as scientists look for new research grants.
The truth is solving social problems is not really on the agenda. The whole of this moralistic style of government, the stuffing of newspapers with health scare stories and flooding of the air-waves with shock, horror pictures of fat people,l thin people, kids smoking, having unprotected sex, behaving badly, alcoholics rooting in rubbish bins for a drink is necessary because our socialistic public realm has thousands upon thousands of tax eaters, field workers, advisers, counsellors, coordinators, administrators, outreach workers and whole departments of managers and support staff. And somehow the tax eaters at middle management level and higher have to give the impression all the people employed to swell their bureaucratic empires actually look as if they have something to do to earn the wage we, the taxpayers, pay them. .
It is the modern bureaucratic version of Parkinsons old law about waste in the civil service: Work expands to fill the time available, he said. So now the number of social ills increases in direct proportion to the number of councillors and support workers and outreach workers and the ant colonies of administrative droids employed to cure or at lease alleviate the suffering caused by those social ills.
We are living under a regime which could be described as "populist authoritarianism". The aim seems so worthy none dare oppose the wasting of huge amounts of money and resources on solving the invented problem. And the drawback to populist authoritarianism is like any kind of oligarchic collectivism, apart from the huge and pointless expense of controlling people capable of looking after themselves, it always evolves from a gentle nudging of the public towards conformity to a fanatical rush towards fascism.
Research, surveys, reports, quangos, and propaganda will do nothing to alleviate these perceived or invented social problems and are not intended to. Abstractions, committees and statistics have no interface with life as we live it. The political and academic classes are totally detached from reality they have no inkling of how ordinary people live. What is required to solve such problems as truly exist is the individual will, personal responsibility. But T.S. Eliot put this better than anyone back in 1934 when he defined our present delusions as, men dreaming of systems so perfect that no one will need to be good. There has never been a better description of political-correctness than that.
And what is wrong with dreaming of perfection? the politically correct thinkers might well ask. Well nothing so long as it stays in the realm of dreams because dreams and reality are like oil and water, they have never mixed well.

Unity On Eurozone Fourth Reich Starts To Crumble
by Ian R Thorpe
Over the past few days there has been much wailing and gnashing of teeth from supporters of Euronaziism and the global governance control freaks of the progressive left about David Cameron's flat refusal to agree to regulation of Britain's financial affairs by unelected bureaucrats from Brussels. To hear the lefties and one worlders you would think that Cameron could not have isolated Britain more from the other nations of Europe had he made paedophilia compulsory.
Get away from the biased reporting of the Bolshevik Broadcasting Corporation and those publications that present themselves as mature, balanced news organs but are in fact crypto Stalinist syphilis sores on the bell end of the media's organ, The Guardian, The Independent and The Daily Mirror and one senses a different mood in Europe.
More EU countries, both non members of the single currency and some that are in the Euro zone are starting to question last week's treaty agreement to centralise tax and spending powers. At home, with our sovereignty seemingly defended by David Cameron's veto, concern is growing over the UK's contribution to eurozone bail-out funds. Elsewhere, in polls predicting the outcome of next year's French Presidential election Nico the Gnome trails front runner Marine Le Pen, leader of the right wing National Front and the virtually unknown socialist candidate. Angela Merkel prepares to address the German parliament which is in a rebellious mood with her ruling coalition close to collapse.
The Czech leader Petr Necas said "there is not much more than a blank sheet of paper" on offer at the moment. Within the euro, Ireland's PM Enda Kenny was facing calls to put the plans for more central control over tax and spending to a referendum, and Holland's leader Mark Rutte also under pressure. Italy and Greece have already had democracy suspended and are being run by bureaucrats appointed by Brussels. It seems the only nations wholeheartedly supporting the new treaty that would establish greater fiscal union are those nations that are permanently skit and dependent for financial survival on handouts from Brussels anyway. Britain, to remind those with short memories, is the second largest net contributor to the EU budget, stumping up Ł40 million a day to feed the bloated, greedy monster.
For possibly the have taken the same line on events in Europe in this morning's papers.
The Financial Times and the Daily Mail,in agreement possibly for the first time in recorded history, say cracks are starting to show in the agreement reached between 26 of the 27 EU nations last Friday, with Britain the odd one out as David Cameron was granted the power to act while other leaders have to put forward the changes to their own parliaments and electorates.
Now, the FT says, "the pressure is acute in non-eurozone countries where at least four governments warned that the precise text would determine whether they could sign up or otherwise join the UK on the sidelines."
The much hyped deal last week did not really buy time for the Euro zone leaders to solve the crisis, it was merely a stay of the inevitable execution. It will be weeks, possibly only two or three weeks, rather than months before the debt contagion and accompanying economic mayhem breaks out again. The system is essentially FUBAR, but eurozone policymakers are still trying to bodge it up with bits of wire and a squirt of WD40 rather than consigning it to the scrapyard. The only way to fix the problem would be for all the nations of Europe to stop spending more than they rake in. And that cannot happen as long as the EU, with its overgenerous benefits and social care systems continues. Now if we hadn't exported all the industry to China and India, if we hadn't listened to all those idiot academics who talked about a "knowledge economy", the internet and green technology being the job creators of the future (they are both job killers) or the most moronic blether about national governments and corporate interests paying us for the pointless "science" being done in universities, we might hve a chance. Until we kill all the intellectual idiots however, they will just keep steering us further up shit creek.

David Cameron Isolated As EuroNazis Try To Save The Single Nation Project
by John de Roe
Senior analysts and traders in the financial markets have warned that bank failures are likely as the summit convened to work out a way to save the Euro and solve the European debt crisis failed to deliver a solution. The only positive outcome of the meeting was that David Cameron vetoed a deal which would have given a huge chunk of Britain's national sovereignty away by handing over to the unelected bureaucrats of Brussels oversight of our national finances including taxation policy.
The European Central Bank admitted it had held meetings about providing emergency funding to the region's struggling banks, however City figures said a "collateral crunch" was imminent as the ECB did not control the kind of funds needed to pull off such a rescue. This explains who the French and Germans were so keen to obtain regulatory powers over The City of London, the world's largest financial trading centre.
"If anyone thinks things are getting better then they simply don't understand how severe the problems are. I think a major bank could fail within weeks," said one London-based executive at a major global bank. A sure sihgnal that we should ignore the hyperbolic windbaggery of politicians who are now in the business of trying to shift blame.
Many European banks, including some French, Italian and Spanish lenders, have already run out of many of the acceptable forms of collateral such as US Treasuries and other liquid securities used to finance short-term loans and have been forced to resort to pawning their gold reserves to maintain access to dollar funding.
"The system is creaking. There is a large amount of stress," said Anthony Peters, a strategist at Swissinvest, pointing to soaring interbank lending rates. And if the Swiss are worried, we are really up shit creek.
A weekly funding report circulated among banks said the ECB had effectively become the central clearer for the region's banks as lenders are increasingly distrustful about funding one another. Bank deposits with the ECB now stand at their highest level since June 2010 at 905bn (Ł772bn). Lenders are withdrawing deposits held with their other banks and placing them into the central bank. Banks in major eurozone countries such as France and Italy are simultaneously becoming increasingly reliant on central bank funding. This follows the trend seen in smaller countries like Ireland where commercial lenders have effectively becomes taxpayer-funded "zombie" banks.
Alastair Ryan, a banks analyst at UBS, said there would be "no Lehman moment" or single catastrophic event for the European banking sytem, but added that without a full backstop of bank liabilities by governments the system would "struggle to finance itself in the next year in a durable way. The system at the moment hasn't got funding of a duration that allows it to function, so it's failing," he said.
Others think the eurozone banks are heading for a catastrophe and the worry is growing that a major bank could collapse within weeks.

Britain Saved From Becoming A Province Of Germany As Cameron Grows A Pair.
In the nick of time David Cameron grew a pair of balls, stood up to the dark forces of Euronaziism and vetoed a crucial EU treaty deal that would have seen Britain's finances overseen by German financiers and the unelected bureaucrats of Brussels.Mr. Cameron's veto leaves 23 of the other 27 EU nations to thrash out plans for tougher central control of eurozone tax and spending. Delegates from Sweden, Hungary and the Czech Republic will consult their Parliaments before deciding whether to support this Franco - German power grab. The European Union has suffered the most damaging split in its 54 year history after David Cameron blocked a eurozone treaty change after France and Germany refused to consider safeguards to protect Britains economy and particularly the banking and finance centre in The City of London..
Britain was left isolated this morning with the three other countries, Sweden, Hungary and the Czech Republic, as an exultant Nicolas Sarkozy, strutting around like a jackbooted little Hitler boasted of a historic breakaway euro plus bloc that would pursue fiscal and economic union via a new treaty outside the EU. Mr. Sarkozy forgets he has to face his electorate next year and is already a hugely unpopular President. His willingness to hand control of French fiscal policy to Germany and Brussels is not going to play well to nationalustic French voters.
The Prime Minister insisted that he had been prepared to support treaty change among all 27 of the EUs members to allow the 17-strong eurozone to take measures to tackle its debt crisis and to enforce tough new fiscal rules for the single currency. After 11 hours of bad-tempered talks however, Mr Cameron said that he had blocked the changes because France and Germany and refused to agree to a protocol giving the City of London protection from a wave of EU financial service regulations related to the eurozone crisis.
I came here with one of two outcomes in mind: safeguards that made a treaty within a treaty, a complex legal structure, or if we could not have that, allowing others to go off in a treaty on their own and ensuring that the EU is maintained as a single market, he said. I had to pursue very doggedly what was in British national interest. It is not easy when you are in a room where people are pressing you to sign up to things because they say it is in all our interests.

Exam Board Admists There Is Little Content In Their Exams
A GCSE examination paper set by Edexcel, one of Britains biggest exam boards, has so little content that the organisation's chief examiner cannot believe it was approved by the Governments official regulators, according to reports in the press and on television news.
Steph Warren, a senior official at Edexcel, revealed to an undercover reporter posing as a teacher who was considering using the firms tests that you dont have to teach a lot and that there is a lot less for pupils to learn than with rival courses. Miss Warren, who oversees the setting of geography exams for tens of thousands of teenagers, said she did not know how the paper got past the official regulation system that is supposed to ensure high standards in GCSEs and A-Levels.
The disclosures, the latest from ongoing investigations into exam standards in the wake of dumbing down allegations, will reinforce suspicions that exam boards are driving down standards by aggressively competing with one another to persuade schools to take their tests and thus increase their revenue from government.
Another Edexcel official has also boasted to an undercover reporter about the ease of the exam boards coursework. So weak kids, you can get them through on anything really. Jennifer Smith, Edexcels A-Level English moderator said.
The revelation prompted widespread outragedEducation Secretary Michael Gove who ordered Ofqual, the exam regulator, to begin a formal investigation into exam boards. Yesterday a spokesman for the Prime Minister said the exam system was discredited.
We are very clear that our exam system needs fundamental reform, the spokesman said. The revelations we have seen today show our current system is discredited. We are very clear we will take whatever action is necessary to restore faith in the exam system.
Asked if last years exam results had been devalued, David Camerons official spokesman added: I dont think thats the right conclusion to draw but theres clearly a problem and we need to address that.
Amid growing concern over the standard of next years tests, Ofqual is poised to make recommendations for urgent reform to Mr Gove before Christmas.

The Day Of The Eurodead
by John de Roe
While we wait for Mario Merkozy and the other Euro rats to eat each other here are a few snippets from the EMU break-up prophecies published in the past few days.
The Dutch bank ING has revised its numbers, calculating that the Greek Drachma would fall by 80pc against the D-Mark in a dismembering of the European Single Currency involving Euro member states reverting to their own currencies.The Escudo and the Peseta would both fall by 50pc, and the Lira and the Irish Punt by 25pc. Germany, INGS says, would suffer a "deflationary shock".
The whole eurozone would plunge into a recession that would make the one following the banking meltdown in 2008 look like a walk in the park. A GDP contraction of around 9pc across member sttes in 2012 would send shockwaves round the world. Germany would see it's economy shrink by 7 per cent, France 9 per cent, Portugal 12 percent and Greece by 13 percent.
Outside the Eurozone, the UK would see a 5 per cent contraction), Poland 6.5 per cent, USA (who have their own problems) 2 percent and Japan 1.5 percent).
It is not all bad news however. The price of oil would drop to $55 a barrel. The US would experience deflation but fuerl prices would fall.
The contraction would continue into 2013, before gradually stabilizing probably resulting in a period of stagnation.
"Events of the past year have proved beyond doubt that the Eurozone is far from a textbook `optimal currency area' (well some of us said it was unworkable and insane, motivated more by a wish to establish a European superstate as a stepping stone to global governance than an attempt to bring economic stability to the poorer nations of Europe. It is now, however, an omelette that cannot readily be unscrambled and restored to three separate eggs.
The ING report is less dire than a UBS press release predicting a 50pc collapse in peripheral GDP, and 20pc to 25pc in the core, but it still begs the question: "If the intra-EMU currency misalignment was so out of kilter that free floats would cut Greece by 80pc, and Spain by 50pc, it surely validates the eurosceptic argument that monetary union has become a preposterous and unworkable arrangement, an obsession of power crazy world domination freaks rather than a solution to economic problems. The sceptics are right of course, well I'm one of them and on economcs I'm never wrong.
It will take hideous contortions to hold the system together for year after year if ING is close to right on these numbers, with perma-slump, endless austerity, and ever greater macro-economic absurdities, so why persist? Breaking up the Euro single currency system will be painful but not as bad as perpetual pain. Let's get the cancer cut out, get the pain over with and get back to somethink like normality.
Some economists are of the opinion that the D-Mark will soar against the dollar after a break-up, mimicking the Swiss franc. They are wrong. The New DMark would be sucked down by the depression and mayhem following a breakup.It is naive to think the euro could rally if Greece was offered an exit route that guaranteed a soft landing. The problems are systemic, there are only three nations out of the 17 that use the Euro not running a contant deficit. Welfare systems, deindustrialisation and ageing populations have taken their toll. The core currency, even without Greece would plunge below dollar parity, and perhaps below $0.85.
The base case of governments and central banks remains that EMU will survive, courtesy of a grand bargain that exchanges tighter fiscal discipline and economic reform for German support for ECB action to aid the funding of peripheral governments and banks. Then the question would be how long could the German coalition survive in the face of anger among German voters.
The most likely is most Euro nations, the exceptions being Germany, Austria, The Netherlands, Finland and Luxembourg, will end up with zombie economies, stick in stagflation and permanent austerity, staggering from crisis to crisis. WEhatever happens however it is going to be a double bill horror show.

UK manufacturing adds to economic gloom
Britain's manufacturing sector returned worse-than-expected performance figures in October, shrinking 0.7pc and heightening fears that the UK economy will contract in the fourth quarter.
Economists had forecast a smaller decline of 0.3pc, but the eurozone debt crisis has had greater impact on business than anticipated. The Office for National Statistics data were "hugely disappointing" according to Howard Archer, chief UK economist at IHS Global Insight.
"Hopes raised earlier in the year that the manufacturing sector could see extended healthy growth and help the economy to see more balanced activity now seem a distant memory," he said.
Broader industrial production - which includes mining and utilities as well as manufacturing - also contracted by 0.7pc against expectations of a 0.3pc fall.
The weak data suggested stagnation in manufacturting could act as a drag on growth in the final quarter of the year, as producers are hit with falling demand for their goods both at home and abroad.
UK jobs market in rapid decline
by Xavier Conolly
Britain's jobs market is in rapid decline as flagging business confidences forces employers to delay hiring decisions, a new report reveals.
Unemployment could rise to 3m, according to KPMG business consulting group and the Recruitment and Employment Confederation. A joint report warned of further job losses as the number of people placed in permanent jobs fell at the sharpest rate since July 2009.
On a scale where anything above 50 represents an increase in hiring, the reports jobs index reached 48.2 in November, down from 49.7 in October and way below its pre-credit crunch peak of 64.1.
The report warned the growth in permanent job vacancies eased back as employers became increasingly concerned over the eurozone crisis and global growth prospects. The rate of growth for temporary jobs also scaled back from October, meaning pay pressures were subdued across permanent and agency staff.
Bernard Brown, partner at KPMG, said uncertainties in the European market could send unemployment soaring to beyond 3m, up from its current 17-year high of 2.6m. Whilst most commentators suggest unemployment will peak lower than three million, this figure may be tested in the year ahead, he said. Economic uncertainty is resulting in a number of employers placing jobs on hold and taking longer to make recruitment decisions. Last weeks Autumn Statement contained a number of welcome measures aimed at helping businesses to grow and to ease red tape around employment but they are unlikely to make much difference in the short term.
The report showed a slight boost in the number of candidates available for jobs but at the weakest rate of growth since May, suggesting fewer people were willing to quit their jobs in turbulent times.
The jobs market has been slowing since May but this slowdown has accelerated in the past three months. The decline is being driven by falling business and consumer confidence.
Analysts expect unemployment to rise in December and January. Employers are finding it difficult to recruit people with the right skill sets, with engineering, construction, IT and computing skills being among those regarded in short supply.
Another Tory Minister Breaks Ranks To Tell Cameron There Must Be A Referendum On Europe
by Ed Butt
Following our recent reports on hints from Minister Iain Duncan Smith and influential backbencher Douglas Carswell of a Tory rebellion against the Prime Minister's europhile stance, another senior minister, Northern Ireland Secretary Owen Patterson, Owen Paterson, the Northern Ireland Secretary, has said a referendum on Britain's relationship with the European Union is "inevitable".
Mr Patersons comments, in an interview with The Spectator, are the most serious Conservative challenge yet to David Camerons European policy. Mr Cameron this week insisted that the proposed fiscal union among eurozone members does not involve a transfer of British power to Brussels, therefore there is no need for a referendum.
Mr Paterson countered his leader by saying that the creation of a more integrated eurozone will create a brand new relationship between Britain and the EU. That change, he suggested, must eventually trigger a referendum in Britain on the new arrangements to be discussed at a Brussels summit tomorrow.
If we confine the argument to simple economics, while it is hrd to see what concrete benefits Britain gets for the Ł40 million a day EU membership costs us, there is a case for remaining in the community. With the Eurozone nations racing towards a German led bureaucratic dictatorship with the central government of the single European nation being apointed by Brussels and Brussels being told what to do by Germany there is no case at all for being part of the neo Nazi Fourth Reich Europes leaders long for.
If the fiscal union of the 17 Euro members goes ahead, thgose nations will have to vote as a bloc on any European laws and regulations. Thus the remaining nine members who are not members of the single currency system can never hope to influence policies to which their EU membership will bind them.
We would, in effect, be ruled from Germany.

Have Cameron's Attempts To Drag Us Into A European Fiscal Union Doomed Him
by Ed Butt
Longtime Eurosceptic cConservative MEP Daniel Hannon has attacked David Cameron many times, highlighting Cameron's slavish devotion to the idea of a single European superstate ruled from Brussels by a government of appointed Bureaucrats. Last week Dan was joined by former Tory leader Iain Duncan Smith who slated the Prime Minister's slimy attempt to wriggle out of his promise that we would have a referendum before he made us part of an authoritarian bureaucratic dictatorship.
Now influential backbencher Douglas Carswell has joined the attack on he scumsucking spawn of a pox whore's scab lce who want to give away our national sovereignty in exchange for a seat on the gravy train for themselves. The outspoken eurosceptic said ministers and civil servants could not be trusted to negotiate with other member states in the national interest.
Mr. Carswell also said plans by Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, and the French President Nicolas Sarkozy to change existing treaties to cope with the eurozone debt crisis should be a trigger for British renegotiation.
His comments echo Iain Duncan-Smith's call for a referebdum on any treaty But Mr Cameron, who is attending a meeting of the European Council in Brussels later this week, insists that nothing has changed to justify such a move. Oh no? Well why are the Krauts and Frogs talking about a two tier Europe with the seventeen members of the single currency system voting the waqy Germany tells them to outvote Britain and other nations that have retained their own currency on laws imposed by Brussels that will affect British people?
Mr Carswell said the current new treaty discussions offered an opportunity for those supporting a renegotiation of the UKs membership of the EU.
This is an unprecedented opportunity for us to get the deal that we want, he said, during a discussion on BBC Radio 4's Today programme. The issue is can we trust ministers and senior civil servants to negotiate the deal on our behalf I believe not." Neither do I, in fact I could throw any of those smooth faced arse bandits a lot further than I would trust them.
The only way that we can get the deal that is in the national interest is if ministers and mandarins know that the result has to be put to the people in a referendum.
Not only is Mr. Carswell right, his comments highlight tensions within the Coalition over Europe that is stretching the government to breaking point. While the crypto-fascist, pseudo liberasl Democrats are all for global governments, multiculturalism and all the other Politically Correct bullshit the Conservatives are close to all out rebellion against Cameron and Clegg's pro Europe, one-nation-at-any-price stance and are pushing to repatriate powers.
Simon Hughes, the Lib Dem deputy leader, told the programme that the coalition agreement blocked any referendum on the issue unless it involved a fresh transfer of powers to Brussels an option not currently on the table.
We have enough problems in the European Union dealing with the euro without the UK being part of a referendum option as well, he said.
Time for Nigel Farage to step up to the mark and tell Cammers and Clegg, Simon Hughes and all the other spineless, limp wristed stoat felchers to fuck the fucking fuck off because there's a home in UKIP for MPs who value Britain's nationhood.
Not long ago The Daily Stirrer said the final war would not be between nations or cultures but would set the elite and their arse lickers against the people.

Scientists Find A Planet That Might, Just Possibly, Support Life
by Ian R Thorpe
In another step toward finding
alien lifeforms who will teach us lots about really clever stuff like time travel and teleporters Earth-like planets that may support life similar to thsat found onb earth, NASA has announced the Kepler space telescope has confirmed observing its first-ever planet in a habitable zone outside our solar system.
Confirmation means that astronomers have seen it crossing in front of its star three times. But it doesn't mean that astronomers know whether life actually exists there, simply that the conditions are right. What they have seen might be the Midgard Serpent chasing it's own tail for all they know.
Potential life bearing planets have to be the right distance from their star to support water, plus have a suitable temperature range and atmospheric composition to support life. And if they are to support inteligent life there are other things that must be in place; Television, pubs, a beer making industry, a welfare state system and football stadiums.
"We have now got good planet confirmation with Kepler-22b," said Bill Borucki, Kepler principal investigator at NASA Ames Research Center told media representatives. "We are certain that it is in the habitable zone and if it has a surface, it ought to have a nice temperature".
Spinning around its star some 600 light years away, Kepler-22b is 2.4 times the size of the Earth, putting it in class known as "super-Earths," and orbits its Sun-like star every 290 days. Its near-surface temperature is presumed to be about 72 degrees Fahrenheit (22 Celsius). Scientists do not know, however, whether the planet is rocky, gaseous or liquid. Ah well gaseous could be a bit of a problem unless the life forms are like Amoeba Constabulae. In which case our first explorers would be able to say, "It's life Jim, but not as we know it.)
It should be mentioned that a light year is the distance travelled by light at 186,000 miles a second, in one Earth year. So obviously the scientists know there are lifeforms there because with super dooper radio telescopes they can see the little green buggers waving to us. But at that distance we will never see them with the naked eye. Let's hop Santa Claus brings us all some good binoculars.
The planet's first "transit," or star crossover, was observed shortly after NASA launched its Kepler spacecraft in March 2009.
Kepler is NASA's first mission in search of Earth-like planets orbiting suns similar to ours, and has so far cost the US space agency about $600 million.
But these are exciting times for
Trekkies Astronomers; this is the fourth "first" earth - like planet discovered in the past two years (OK, I admit one was only a maybe).
Kepler is searching for planets as small as Earth, including those orbiting stars in a warm, habitable zone where liquid water could exist on the surface of the planet. In addition to French astronomers' confirmed finding of Gliese 581d in May, Swiss astronomers reported in August that another planet, HD 85512 b, about 36 light years away seemed to be in the habitable zone of its star.
However, those two planets are "orbiting stars smaller and cooler than our Sun," NASA said in a statement, noting that Kepler-22b "is the smallest yet found to orbit in the middle of the habitable zone of a star similar to our Sun." In other words these guys have no idea if any of the possible life supporting planets could actually support life. And as show above it wll be quite some time before we can get there so all they will have to go on is guesswork, supposition and wishful thinking.
Once again we at Boggart Blog feel the scientists are so lost up their own equations they are missing the point. The surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe, is that none of it has tried to visit us yet.
A total of 48 exoplanets and exomoons are potential habitable candidates, among a total of 2,326 possibilities that Kepler has identified so far. The top rankers are listed in an online catalog that indexes bodies outside our solar system .
And these people want to spend shitloads of money styudying this planet? Cunts.

What happened before Big Bang
Two New Black Holes Are The Biggest Ever
by Xavier Connolly
Scientists have discovered the two biggest black holes yet observed, each with an estimated mass billions of times greater than the Sun's, according to a study published on Monday, December 5. The two giants are located in the heart of a pair of galaxies several hundred million light years from Earth, said the study in scientific journal Nature. OK well, as the scientists are measuring light arriving at observatories from the region of the two galaxies, that means the light set off from there a few hundred million earth years ago. So the supposed Black Holes might not even be there now. So what significance does this have to us as we wrestle with economic problems, overpopulation, joblessness etc?
Wait though, the scientists have not finished being irrelevant yet. Each black hole is estimated to have a mass about 10 billion times greater than our sun, dwarfing the previously largest known black hole, which has a mass of 6.3 billion suns. And how to they know this? Has anyone ever been to a black hole and taken measurements? Unlikely as in theory nothing can get out of a black hole once it is sucked in.
These conclusions have been arrived at on the basis of "evidence" gathered by some cretin siting in a study performing equations on data he had made up. You think I am just being sarky? No, the cretin's name was Albert Einstein and unfortunately most modern science is based on his "scientific method" of deciding what answer you want and then tailoring the data to fit.
The latest extravaganza in Einstein worship comes from a University of California, Berkeley, team led by Nicholas McConnell and Chung-Pei Ma. The unlikely sounding duo said one black hole is located in NGC 3842, the brightest of a cluster of galaxies about 320 million light years from Earth.
The second hole, of "comparable or greater mass" and is located in NGC 4889, the brightest galaxy in the Coma cluster, about 335 million light years away.
"These two black holes are significantly more massive than predicted," the astronomers wrote.Their calculations suggest that different evolutionary processes influence the growth of the largest galaxies and their black holes than in smaller galaxies. Calculations eh? Never any real evidence with these characters is there. Well as I said, we aren't likely to be able to travel several hundred light years into space in the near future. Why can't these vain, self aggrandizing research grant phishers see it does not matter at all what is going on in deep space, even if it affects us in any way there is sod all we can do about it.
Astronomers have long supposed that since the universe began it has harboured black holes with a mass the size of the two newly found giants. These cosmic gluttons grow in tandem with their galaxies, slurping up gases, planets and stars. "There is a symbiotic relationship between black holes and their galaxies that has existed since the dawn of time," Kevin Schawinski, a Yale astronomer said in a June study.
What these stupid coneheads are overlooking while creaming their underpants in sheer excitement over this "discovery" is even if we could travel at the speed of light (186,000 miles per second) it would take hundreds of millions of years years to get to these galaxies. At the speed our fastest currently operational spacecraft can reach ( about 10) miles a second) it would take over a billion years to get there.
And people are spending taxpayers money on studying this stuff. Cunts.

Israel and USA war covert war on Iran.
Former US intelligence officials and Iran experts believe the USA and Israel are already 'involved in covert war against Iran with the aim of bringing about regime change in that country. It is rumoured last month's explosion at a military base near Tehran was part of a covert effort by the US, Israel and other states to overthrow the Islamist regime disable Iran's nuclear and missile programmes, The Los Angeles Times reported late on Sunday.
The huge explosion ripped through the Revolutionary Guard Corps base on November 12, levelling most of the buildings and killing 17 people, including a founder of Iran's ballistic missile program, General Hassan Tehrani Moghaddam.
The newspaper said the goal of the covert campaign is to derail Iran's quest for a nuclear weapons capability.
"It looks like the 21st century form of war," said Patrick Clawson, director of the Iran Security Initiative at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, adding. "It does appear there is a campaign of assassinations and cyber war, as well as the semi-acknowledged campaign of sabotage."
Any such operation would be highly classified, and those who might know of it are not likely to be giving press conferernces.
For years, the United States and its allies have sought to hinder Iran's weapons programmes by secretly supplying faulty parts, plans or software, according to information leaked from western security sevices. So far there is no proof of a camaign of sabotage, but Iran's nuclear programme clearly has hit obstacles that thwarted progress in recent years.
Art Keller, a former CIA case officer who worked on Iran,was quoted in the LA Times as saying. "It's pretty much the stated mission of the (CIA's) counter-proliferation division to do what it takes to slow Iran's weapons of mass destruction programme."
Many Western experts are convinced that American and Israeli engineers secretly fed the Stuxnet computer worm into Iran's nuclear program in 2010, The LA Times pointed out. The virus reportedly caused centrifuges used to enrich uranium to spin out of control and shatter, the paper said. We should remember however the computers used to manage the nuclear project are not internet enabled, are not Microsoft Windows, Apple or Linux devices and were supposedly infected in a sting operation on two Iranian scientists that would have made a story too far fetched to be the plot of a James Bond film.
It is far more likely that /Barack Obama, the puppet President (and allegedly closet Muslim) whose strings are pulled by the Saudi Royal House according to many Bammy - watchers, has been told by his paymasters, devout Sunni Muslims) that the Shi'ite regime in Iran must go.
It is not many weeks since The Daily Stirrer reported that Obama had ordered American combat troops into Uganda to supposedly quell the terrorist activities of a rag bag bunch of bandits, The Lord's Resistance Army, led by a renegade Christian preacher. The great peacemaker, the great conciliator, the vacuous windbag who promised a post racial, post sectarian world in which we would all join hands and sing Kumbiya before The President Of The Entire Universe And Everything Else Besides, with one wave of his magic penis made all the problems disappear instantly.
Somehow we get the idea that China, Russian and India are not going to buy into the idea of Obama's omnipotence. Right now he may be a cretin and an imbecile as many of us warned but he is America's cretin and imbecile, soon he could be the world's problem.

Can The Euro Be Saved
The mainstream media have caught on at last. Here is what Daily Telegraph economics writer Damien Reece said today (three days after The Daily Stirrer said the same thing you might notice):
The clock is ticking for the euro. After 11 years circulating in shops and bars from Athens to Zeebrugge, there are, it is said, just 10 days left to save it or perhaps eight, since it was on Wednesday that Olli Rehn, Europes Economic and Monetary Affairs Commissioner, made his startling prediction of the euros imminent demise.
The fact that Rehn, an official at the heart of the euro project, came out with such a stark assessment has brought what many thought was unthinkable into the realm of the thinkable. So thinkable, in fact, that governments (including our own), central banks, lawyers, financial institutions and investors are making contingency plans for what is assumed will be an economic event of cataclysmic proportions ...

Why The USA Fears The Euro Zone Crisis
As the Federal Reserve joins global central banks in a collective action against the looming euro meltdown, Slate's Matt Yglesias explains why it's so crucial that the U.S. participate: non-American banks hold nearly 50 percent of the U.S. dollars in the world, and a European crash might suddenly make them unavailable to American borrowers. "You never want the people in charge to actually set off a panic by speaking too soon about hypothetical calamities, but wed all better hope that somewhere in the basement of the Treasury Department and the Federal Reserve theyre prepping a Plan B to keep money flowing even if European finance dries up."
Eurodoom, the theory that is speading fear and panic through the world's financial markets predicts the European economic crisis could devastate the U.S. This would also be devastating for the emerging economies of the third world as they rely on western consumerism to provide a market for their goods.
The severity of the economic crisis in the Eurozone is perhaps best understood if we use it to put into perspective a striking statement made this week by a senior Polish politician Radek Sikorski. "I will probably be the first Polish foreign minister in history to say this," he said, "but here it is: I fear German power less than I am beginning to fear its inactivity."
Poland is not a member of the European Single Currency system, but the unease among Polish leaders is understandable. Poland's exports to its EU partners that are Eurozone members constitute more than 10 percent of Polish GDP, so a massive economic contraction would have a catastrophic knock on effect in Poland.
But what has the United States of America to fear except fear itself? US exports to the Eurozone are only around 1.3 percent of GDP. That is a fleabite, not enough to fund Barack Obama's spending on neighbourhood parties at The White House for a month. Looked at in dollars it might seem an enormous amount to someone earning only slightly above the statutory minimum wage but in terms of the national economy it's peanuts. This might suggest that the US economy has less to fear from the collapse of the Euro than from the expiry of the Bush income tax cuts and the Obama payroll tax cuts.
To understand America's problem we need to look at what is happening in Europe from a different angle.The reason the United States could face catastrophe if the Euro single currency system goes tits up. A fact well-known to financial practitioners but unknown to the public, and occasionally mentioned by Nobel Prize phishing economics professors is that a very large share of the worlds dollars, close to 50%, are held in non-American accounts. Indeed, for several years in the the first decade of this century the total dollar assets of non-American banks actually exceeded the total assets of the U.S. commercial banking system and even today, after Obama's three year money printing exercise, the ratio is close to 1:1.
A daunting possibility suggested in a Nov. 7 lecture Global Banking Glut and Loan Risk Premium (PDF) by Princeton professor Hyun Song Shi. These dollars, mostly held by European-headquartered global conglomerates are not isolated from the American economy. Just as U.S. firms and households deposit money in American banks and take loans from the banks, Europe's global banks act as intermediaries between borrowers and investors. It's how the whole global economy has worked for 200 years. A 2010 Bank of International Settlements survey (PDF) revealed that as of 2009, 161 foreign banks were operating 226 branches in the United States that raised more than $1 trillion in wholesale funding, largely through money markets. Dollars raised in the United States tend to ultimately work their way back to the United States through the labyrinthine networks of the banking system. European banks arent the only ones in this game, but they are the largest player. The upshot is that decisions made in Europe about how much leverage to take on play as important a part in determining American lending as do decisions made in the United States.
The Professor goes on to argue that European decision-making played a large role in inflating the now departed credit bubble that burst in 2008. That may outrage some American patriots but if it helps them learn that the global banks cannot truly be described as American, Bitish, German, Chinese etc. as they have no identifiable owners but instead through cross investment all own each other it may help both conservatives and liberals who are even more out of touch understand how the world really works right now. The liberals of course will simply refuse to believe it, close their minds to the truth and start yelling "conspiracy theory". But at least they will have no reason to be surprised on waking up one morning to find they are no longer free individuals.
The realistic implication, however, is that a massive and sudden contraction of the European economy would make those foreign held dollars unavailable to American borrowers. This would immediately cause a tightening of credit conditions in the United States. If European finance houses are sudenly forced to hold onto cash the dollars held by European banks would suddenly be placed beyond the reach of American commercial lenders and by extension business and domestic borrowers.
Orthodox economic thinking as expressed by government officials and economic analysts reported in mainstream media does not yet appear able to join the dots that link Europes difficulties to moves in the American credit markets.. Yesterday the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) released updated economic forecasts reflecting new pessimism by saying Euro area growth is forecast to slow down from 1.6 percent this year to 0.2 percent next year, having a small impact on an American economy that will still grow by 2 percent.
Since 2008 however policymakers have suffered from a bias toward optimism. Europeans were initially far too smug about the idea that they were insulated from problems relating to a housing bubble on the other side of an ocean. Then, in 2010, American policymakers were far too impressed by good news from the labor market and leapt to unwarranted conclusions about a recovery summer. Now the risk is that American leaders will overestimate their nation's degree of insulation from problems in the European banking system.

Ed Miliband Sounds Like A 'Public Schoolboy' Says Traditional Labour Voter.
With two and a half months still to go until polling day, the election campaign is well and truly underway. Ed Miliband kicked off Labour's effort with what could turn out to be his bigotgate monent, as he stopped only a nanometer short of telling an aircraft electrician that ordinary people were not intelligent enough to understand politics and should stick to talking about the soaps.
Turning Libya into a lawless hellhole âwas the right thing to doâ, says Rothschild Zionist David Cameron
De-Dollarization Accelerates: Russia Launches SWIFT-Alternative Linking 91 Entities
Remember when President Obama's favourite arse licker was cheerleading for the bombing of Libya, back in 2011? Britain and France then led a coalition that intervened ostensibly to protect the people of the eastern city of Benghazi but in reality to overthrow the countryâs leader, Muammar Gaddafi. Addressing the UN Cameron in September 2011 Cameron he bragged of the lifesaving and humanitarian aspects of his intervention ...
Among the information revealed in The Great Leaks of 2013 were the documents that exposed the extent to which NSA and GCHQ had been secretly 'monitoring' the SWIFT payments system and recording details of cash flowing between nations and organisations. It appears the revelation was the last straws for Russia, China, and other sovereign nations ...
Robot revolution improves efficiency â but there's a price for human society
Since making a media debut in Fritz Langâs cinema classic Metropolis, the idea that robots will replace humanity has obsessed the kind of scientists who make your average fruitcake look suitable fare for people with nut allergies. In the same way that computers with superhuman intelligence would surpass humans, it has been predicted with boring regularity that robots would replace their creators as more efficient and diligent exponents of human activity
Italy To put 5,000 soldiers On The Streets Amid Fears Of Islamic State Attack
Islamic militant websites have stepped up threats against Pope Francis and the Roman Catholic Church and threatened to overrun Italy in recent weeks. The threat of attack on mainland Europe is being taken seriously following the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris and the beheadings of 21 Egyptian Christians by terror group ISIS fighters based in Libya.
Anti UKIP media gives Kippers another boost
As far as UKIP is concerned, thE media seem to be following the old Joseph Goebells mantra of " If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it."The problem is that they have forgotten there is a second part of the mantra which is "The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie ...
âGreek revolution spreads 'like wildfireâ across Europe
The poularity of Anti - EU political movements has surged all around Europe in the wake of the Syriza victory in the recent Greek general election. It seems that prior to the European Parliament election las may most European voters had been resigned to their political elites dragging them closer to a ferderal European single state, with the progressive loss of civil liberties, cultural homogenization and losst of national sovereignty and identity that would entail.

Kiev Breaches Minsk Agreement Within Hours
We all knew the ceasefire agreed by Angela Merkel, Francoise Hollande, Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian Nazi leader Poroschenko would not hold.

ÂŁ600k Payoff For Council Boss Who Refused To Resign Over Child Grooming
Oxford County Council chief executive Joanna Simons, who refused to resign after the failure of her childrenâs services department to act on well supported allegations that grooming gangs throught the county were preying on young girls who had been taken into council care, is likely to get a ÂŁ600,000 pay-off. The disgraced official will get the package for leaving her post early, in a move the council insist is unrelated to the scandal. (Are they having a laugh?)
Millie Tant, Tatchell's Transphobia and Germain Greer's Big Hairy Smelly Vagina
The well of hypocrisy from which the left, champions of freedom, democracy, equality and free speech in their own estimation, draw their dishonest, self rightoeus views on the world is bottomless, it will never run dry. How else could it have continued to flow during this latest two-faced display of authoritarianism from the lovers of all minoities even when those minoritites hate each other. It is the multual hatred of minorities however that is fragmenting the left.

The necessity of changenyone who has been in business is all too clear.

Technology Taking Over Your Life? Just Say No. Omnibus post
When our editor, Ian, wrote his first computer program over forty years ago, it was loaded from punched paper tape. Primitive stuff you may smirk but even then, for some years scientists had been babbling excitedly about machines with true intelligence surpassing and replacing humans. All these years later computers have become smaller, faster and capable of storing much more information. But basically they are no more intelligent.

Social workers allowed convicted paedophile unrestricted access to five-year-old girl
This report concerns a case that so far as we know does not involve grooming and organised abuse by members of ethnic minority communities but is included in this page because it shows yet again that an overriding cluture of political correctness has rendered social services departments, particularly those responsible for the care and protection of vulnerable children, are not fit for purpose.
Child Sex Exploitation - Abuse Scadal Spreads To Chelmsford
Essex police have issued an apology over bungled child abuse investigations. In the last 12 months a "shocking" level of child sexual exploitation (CSE) has been reported to police and cases of abuse had been hidden for too long, a senior officer has acknowledged.

Dr. Offit, Vaccine Pusher in Chief is exposed as a liar.
Some time ago my editor-in-chief was the target of hate attacks by left wing sheeple for questioning the effectiveness of vaccines as anything but profit drivers for Big Pharma. Well Ian has thick skin so he was quite pleased to have provoked a few death threats. One of his targets howver was Dr. Offit who had famously said new born babies could have 10,000 vaccines at the same time without suffering harm. He has not fared so well, having become an object of ridicule.
Europe Fractures: France Pivots To Putin, Cyprus Offers Moscow Military Base and Germany-US Splinter On Ukraine
Yesterdayâs news reports did the usual whitewash job in reporting the the Minsk Summit which aimed to thrash out a Ukraine âpeaceâ deal. Mainstream media gives the impression that the US / EU / NATO alliance are solid in their defence of Ukraine following the CIA engineered coup last year, in reality the various parties involved appear to be flying apart faster than the fragments of shell casing from missiles exploding at they strike targets on Donetsk.
America Is Being Destroyed
A guest post today from USA based writer and poet, Vic Damico. We have written many times of the harm being done to the cultural and social structure of Western Europe's developed nations by the determination of the elites to crush true cultural diversity and replace it with a politically correct monoculture in which differences in skin colour and sexual preference replace diversity of ideas, philosophies and lifestyles.
Thanks To The Dishonest Climate Scientists, the Public Doesnât Know Water Vapor Is Most Important Greenhouse Gas.
Yet another exposure of the lies that have propped up the scientific dishonesty and corporate greed behind the global warming scare. Climate change is real, but the climate has changed constantly for millions of years and whatever the final outcome of what is going on now is not likely to be catastrophic. Very minor changes over the last hundred years have been amplified by data manipulation and the likely effects overstated.

Labour politicians wilfully ignored sex abuse, former MP reveals
Young girls who were being sexually abused by Asian men were ignored by officials because of Left-wing political correctness, Labour figures say.

Labour's Multicultural, Utopian Paradise?
Boggart Bloggers had a good idea what the Rotherham sex abuse report, published yesterday, was going to contain for quite a while. Rotherham had long been one of the Labour flagship councils that the party's propaganda machine liked to portray as a multicultural utopian farmyard in which all the cultures were equal.
Another Conspiracy Theory Becomes Fact: Oil Collapse Is All About Obama's Proxy War With Russia.
While we are distracted with sex scandals at home and terrorists rampaging through the middle east and Africa, the US / EU / NATO confrontation with Russia / China / Iran is geting into a very dangerous state. While the Chinese led move to dump the US dollar as global reserve currency is causing economic chaos, the USA attempts to provoke armed conflict with Russia are getting more reckless and desperate.

GM babies? How About The Frankenstein Lobby Try A Bit Of Honesty And Call It Eugenics
Thatcher stopped Peter Hayman being named as paedophile-link civil servant
As the British Parliament debated legalising the use of techniques to create three parent babies and the dishonest champions of scientific fascism claim is is a perfectly safe development to remove faulty genes from humanity and in no way similar to programs with the same aim carried out in Nazi Germany, we challenge them to be honest and admit what they propose is Eugenics, a morally repugnant quest to create a master race. And all three main political parties support it.
Margaret Thatcher was adamant officials should not publicly name Sir Peter Hayman, a senior diplomat connected to a paedophile scandal, even after she had been fully briefed on his activities, examination of formerly secret papers released to the National Archives shows.
Obama Lubes Up And Bends Over To Service The Worst Corporate Tax Dodgers
Obama was always the corporate candidate. It is any wonder then that under his presidency, in spite of promises to redistribute wealth from rich to poor, the wealth gap between rich and poor has grown immensely wider? Is it any wonder that under his presidency the anti democracy trade deals TTIP and TPP are being pushed on the world, even though they will benefit the worst corporate tax dodgers?
Google Driverless Car Project - there are still a few snags to be ironed out
We said when it was first announced nearly a year ago that the Google driverless car was a non starter. It was not just the fact that Mercedes are miles ahead, nor Google's lack off attachment to reality. It was not the obvious (to those who have worked in the industry) tchnical problems, but the fact that people don't like giving control to machines that will scupper it. Oh and the insurance problems.
High Class Prostitutes Are Used As Bribes In Business Deals.
Shock, horror!

Medical experts furious that doctors will be paid to dole out 'risky' statins
DOCTORS are set to get extra payments to hand out controversial statin drugs to patients who face a low risk of ever developing heart disease.

If You Believe Mainstream Media You Probably Think Russia Is On Its Knees - WRONG!

The Pain In Spain - Will This Be The Next country To Rebel Against EU Tyranny
With society breaking down because of austerity measures imposed by the EU, Greece recently elected a government that will cancel the debt and leave the EU if Greeks are not released from the onerous constraints of Euro single currency membership.

The Death Of Democracy - Lobbying For TTIP
For some years now I and my libertarian friends in the blogosphere have been warning that democracy in the west is under threat, elected governments having been infiltrated by lobbyists working for a corporate elite.

The NHS doctors who get cash from healthcare firms for patient referrals
Open Letter to the New Finance Minister of Greece Yanis Varoufakis
An investigation revealed incentives, often worth tens of thousands of pounds, have been offered to doctors by private healthcare companies in exchange for referring patients to their hospitals. The British Medical Journal reported claims that the doctorsâ regulator, the General Medical Council (GMC), failed to act on a warning in 2012 that the practice of offering incentives was âwidespread, particularly in London, and significant in valueâ.
(This letter ran on the following notable blogs: David Stockman's ContraCorner, Dmitry Orlov's Blog, and The StealthFlation Blog: Dear Yanis, As an ardent admirer, with the utmost respect for what you have put forward and accomplished to date, I humbly offer my thoughts for your consideration.
When Politicians Don't Have A Clue How To Deal With A Problem They Pretend It Does Not Exist.
Mass Immigration, Islamification of European Societies, extremist terrorism, the creation of ghettos in western cities and widespread civil unrest. And yet the political, media and academic elities still resuse to acknowledge that their 'open door' immigration policies are causing major problems.
Regulatory Cooperationâ and TTIP: Opening The Floodgates For Corporate Plunder
A new leak concerning the talks around the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) indicates that the floodgates could be opened even further for corporate influence. The leak has been analysed by the corporate watchdogs CEO and LobbyControl and shows that corporate influence on EU and US policies might dramatically increase via the chapter on so-called âregulatory cooperationâ.
The European Union May Be on the Verge of Regime Collapse
Europe won the Cold War and looked set to become the global superpower. So where did it all go wrong?
Not long after the Berlin Wall fell a quarter of a century ago, the Soviet Union collapsed, the United States squandered its peace dividend in an attempt to maintain global dominance, and Europe quietly became more prosperous, more integrated, and more of a player in international affairs. Between ...
The age of financial privacy is over
Yes you read that right. The fascist regime in the USA has usurped to itself the right to raid bank accoutns anywhere is the world.

Climategate, the sequel: How we are STILL being tricked with flawed data on global warming.
Daily Stirrer occasional contributor Graham Lear returns to one of our favourite themes, the climate change hoax, part of a program of scaremongering being engineered by enemies if freedom and democracy in the higher echelons of scoiety. This about it, who is pushing the myth of catatrophic climate change being caused by Carbon Dioxide from human activity?
Transhumanism - Elitist and Mad Scientist Collaboration To Turn Us Into Automatons.
Transhumanism: there are two definitions, the production of human animal hybrids with the aim of producing superhuman creatures and the merging of humans with machines as a shortcut to creating programmable decives with human instinct, logic and congnitive skills. Neither promises any benefit to humankind in the view of those of us who believe only the natural human being can fulfill individual potential.
From Keynesian Shangri-La To Outright War
Over the last few weeks drum beats could be heard signalling the coming of troops from abroad to lay waste to any foe ahead of them.

Everything You Need To Know About The Greek Crisis.
Those people who think I have suddenly become a right wing extremist because I have been supporting UKIP's anti - EU, anti - Global Government stance and their resistance to the political mainstreams war on European cultures by be surprised to know that I was hoping for the Greek General Election to deliver a convincing victory for left-wing party Syriza.
Greece Votes On Whether Its People Have Any Future
The voters of Greece will choose today, whether their country, the cradle of democracy, has a future of not. They are voting in a general election which could result in Greece trying to renegotiate the terms of its bailout with international lenders and even quitting the EU if the expected victory for hard line left wing party Syriza.
The leader of Syriza, Alexis Tsipras, has pledged to write off much of Greece's huge debt and revoke austerity measures ...
Democracy: Does It have A Future Or Has Global Totalitarianism Won?
The General Election in Greece (January 2014) could have much wider effects than most elections in small nation, the vote could decide the future of the European Union and have a major breaing on whether democracy can survive the push towards government by a global, corporate oligarchy. It look like being an interesting few months if the anti - EU party wins as polls suggest they will.
People Are Waking Up To The Fact That The European Union Is On The Fast Track To Fascism.
Greece has a General Election and it looks as if the anti - EU, extreme left Syriza party will win comfortably. In previous elections that went against the Euronazis in Brussels, the democracy hating bureaucrats simply told the sovereign government of the member nation that the vote was not acceptable. If their try to overturn the Greek result in the same way it will trigger massive civil unrest.
German Anti-Islamisation Marches: What the Mainstream Media Doesnât Want You to Know
For people who rely for news on mainstream media, what is increasingly known in Germany as the âliar pressâ (Luegenpresse), the narrative that the racist, anti Islam protestors have turned nasty might stick. And when the reports throw in salacious details about the former leader of this movement and his colourful past, or the tragic death of an immigrant man who was killed shortly after a demonstration in Dresden last week, the pro immigrant propaganda starts to look like the voice of reason.
So Who's Making Up Innuendos About Leon Brittan
The rumor mill has gone to warp speed following the death of alleged dossier - shredder Leon Brittan. Bizarrely his friend Lord Deben seems to think the various allegations raging from Brittan's role in covering up the activities of a Westminster paedophile ring, to his actual involvement in sexual abuse of children only originated recently.
The Death Of Democracy - Are The Elites Running Scared From Public Opinion
When did democracy go out of fashion. I don't remember voting on whether we wanted to give up our civil liberties or be ruled by a dictatorship of unelected bureaucrats from Brussels, but that is where we are heading, along with the other free nations of Europe. And the USA, so-called land of the free is further along the road to fascism than Europe.

Why the war on CO2 has done far more harm than good
Warmageddonists send a lot of time screeching and scaremongering about the potpentially catastrophic outcomes of increased atmospheric CO2 levels, exaggerating their claims wildly in order to frighten people into supporting their war on the oil and coal industries. Policies formulated to tackle the imaginary threat of anthropogenic climate change have ...
Researchers Discover How to Use Living Plants to Generate Electricity.
Most of the hyped green energy solutions to generate electricity from wind or sunshine are so obviously flawed the only thing that makes them economically viable is that governments offer huge subsidies to generators. This in turn makes the sustainables so expensive that consumers cannot afford the intermittent energy they produce.

Je Suis Saussice (in defence of your right to eat pork sausages)
Just as we showed solidarity with the publishers of Charlie Hebdo magazine after twelve staff were murdered by religious extremists and defended the right of citizens in democratic nations to criticize religion by saying "Je Suis Charlie" so we are now making a stand in support of the freedom to eat sausages (which is an abomination to Allah apparently,) by saying "Je Suis Saussice".
Trade Treaties Fast Track Not A Done Deal, The People Will Stop It
The fast tracking of two trade treaties, TTIP and TPP that the corporate gofor, President Barack Hussein Obama, is pushing in the hope that the deals, will enable him to complete the task he was shoehorned into office for by transferring control of national laws from elected governments to corporate lawyers, looks to be stalling.
Prescription painkillersâ overuse has become âsilent epidemicâ in USA, UK and Europe.
The United kingdon's Office Of National Statistics regularly publishes disturbing figure on the overuse of prescription drugs in the UK.

More Global Warming Hot Air, As Climate Fundamentalists Continue Inflating a False Reality
Weâre told this week that Washingtonâs National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrationâs National Climatic Data Center (NOAA) had finally crunched its numbers for 2014, and Al Gore is a very happy man, as are the armies of amateur climate experts who take government scientific announcements as gospel.
Could 'DNA editing' lead to designer babies?
Designer babies, human / animal hybrids, these things have been in wet dream territory for scientists for a long time. But now due to techniques such as DNA editing, they are getting worryingly close to reality. And as has been demonstrated many times, scientists have zero uderstanding of where the ethical boundaries lie.

Prince Andrew allegations: Suday Mirror Asks: Is this the London house where 'sex slave' says she romped with him?
More Global Warming Hot Air, As Climate Fundamentalists Continue Inflating a False Reality
Nasa admits this means it is far from certain that 2014 set a record at all. Does that mean 97% of climate experts are 62% sure they are wrong? The thing with half-truths is that they generate a glorious fog, but it has no substance. Ask of the spin-cloud a couple of sensible questions and the narrative collapses.
Believe The Phoney Narrative Or Be Branded a Conspiracy Theorist.
Right now the west is in big trouble, the move led by Russia and China to dump the petrodollar as global currency has provoked the Americans to lead the wesern allies into an economic war that we cannot win. Why not? One word: debt. A shooting war is the only option but it's by no means certain the allies would win that.
Seventy Years Down The Line And We Have Come Back To Appeasement As A Means To Peace.
As a spate of increasingly bloody and violent attacks on civilized values and the democratif freedoms of the western nations (free speech for example) continues to cause revulsion among the general population, our spineless leader are calling on us to be tolerant. The cowardly hypocrites who lead us may be ready to surrender, but anger is mounting in the cities and towns.
Russia throws down the gauntlet: energy supply to Europe cut off; petrodollar abandoned as currency war escalates
Europeâs Intensifying Immigration Debate
There are some big moves taking place on the global stage that you need to know about, as this could all lead to World War III. Yesterday Russia cut off its natural gas supply to Europe, "plunging the continent into an energy crisis 'within hours' as a dispute with Ukraine escalated," the Daily Mail reported. "This morning, gas companies in Ukraine said that Russia had completely cut off their supply. Six countries reported a complete shut-off of Russian gas shipped via Ukraine today, in a sharp escalation of ...
In an absolutely gobsmacking psychological meltdown and an unparalleled display of bourgeois self hate, the former Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt demonstrated how wide the gap between the political and academic elite and reality has become in the materially advanced democracies.

âUncaged Corporate Parrotsâ Of The Political Elite and The GMO False Narrative
Earthâs CO2 Levels Pass Global Warming âMilestone', Nothing Happens - Daily Caller.
The Environment Secretary in the UK Coalition Government, Elizabeth Truss has argued that genetically modified (GM) food should be grown in Britain because it is more âeco-friendlyâ. She adds that steps should be taken to speed up this development. Her statements come as little surprise to many because Trussâs predecessor, Owen Paterson, was also a staunch supporter of GM technology.
After two decades of panic stricken scientists and screeching lefties wailing about the catatrophe that would ensue once the concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere passed 400 parts per million, that figure was reached in December 2014. No islands sank, no ice caps disappeared, no cities were incinerated. Which is pretty much what those of us who recognize the science of scaremongering when we see it predicted would happen.
Whoâs a Charlie? France cracks down on free speech in order to defend it
In grim and supreme irony, French police have fanned out to suppress free speech in order to defend it.âFrance ordered prosecutors around the country to crack down on hate speech, anti-Semitism and glorifying terrorism, announcing Wednesday that 54 people had been arrested for those offensesâ since last week, the Associated Press reports.
Labour's Cockfish Reveals How Mainfesto Will Piss You Off.
All three main parties in the UK General Election are campaigning from a Politically Correct Consensus (i.e. Control Freak) platform. But whenm it comes to politically correct control freakery, Labour will always outdo the others. The main early thut of their campaign is a promise to criminalise sugary snacks and breakfast cereals, fatty foods and some fizzy drinks. And they're serious, they have handed the job of selling this idiocy to The Cockfish of British politics.
Charlie Hebdo: No Wonder There Are Conspiracy Theories

Economist: World Leaders Will Exploit Charlie Hebdo to Eliminate Internet Privacy
Economist Martin Armstrong warns that the twin attacks in France will be used by world leaders to push for restrictions on Internet privacy and the total elimination of encrypted communications.

Oxford University Bans All Things Pig Related In Support Of Free Speech
When does being reasonable and open minded become cowardice? When academics who pride themselves on intellectual detachment cave in to threats from extremists and try to pass off their pitiful weakness by pretending they are showing sensitivity to the feelings of minorities.

While the world has been looking the other way, Boko Haram has been conquering Nigeria

Insane Science Pushing The Earth Towards Ecocide.
At the Daily Stirrer we have suspected it for a log time, science is insane, a game for the ethically challenged and sociopathic to compete to be first to develop a new plague, or a death ray, or to trash the enviromnent in pursuit of political power or corporate profits for their paymasters. There's even a name for what they are doing now, Ecocide.
A Republic Always Decays Into Oligarchy. Here's Why
Almost a rehash of Schumpeter's warning, that capital alwaysd contains the seeds of its own destruction while socialism always leads to fascism. I guess the old Austrian economist was trying to tel us the only thing that works is chaos. I can live with that.
France sees dozens of anti-Muslim incidents.
No doubt our leaders and the media will condemn the backlash from ordinary French people to the Charlie Hebdo massacre. Random attacks on decent Muslims are wrong. but how long do the elites expect us to keep showing tolerance when they have done nothing about a long standing problem.
The Debt Ponzi Deconstructed
Most of us are familiar with the concept of GDP as a measure of economic health. If GDP increases, the myth goes, then the economy has grown. It is a measure of how effectively or efficiently we are utilizing our assets to generate wealth. The idea is that the more I invest the more notional returns I can generate. Unfortunately GDP is a false economic measure, it only measures the rate at which money churns around the economic system.
In The War On Terror, Freedom Is Not Winning
While we would like to write about more positive things, protecting democracy and free speech, guiding people towards healthy lifestyles, how we the punters can save the planet (especially from the idiocies of the Warmageddonist lobby) and so on, we find far too much of our time is spent trying to get the truth about important issues in front of readers. Mainstream media has abandoned news reporting in favour of simply repeating government and corporate propaganda. Terrorism is one issue on which you will only finds out facts from new media.
Why Iceland Recovery Is Being Ignored In Mainstream News
Iceland is a small country with less that half a million people so is not a good comparison with Britain. It's recovery from near bankruptcy in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis however is due to the rejection of politically correct, globalist politics so in that light it serves to illustrate that to suggest Britain (60 million people) cannot survive outside the EU is just globalist scaremongering.

The Strange Case Of The Footballer And The Witch Hunt.
In 2011 Sheffied United footballer Ched Evans was jailed for rape, a crime he has always insisted he did not commit. Now Evans is out, having served only helf his sentence.

The Euro Is Closer To Collapse Than Anyone Cares To Admit.
A victory for the anti EU Syriza Party in the Greek elections later this month would lead to a Greek default on its massive sovereign debts. This in turn would mean Greece would have to quit the EU. And that would have massive repercussions for the major European economies and probably precipitate a global economic crisis (like the ongoing global depression isn't enough). It is going to be interesting to watch this one play out.

Labour Elite Thinks Northerners Are Thick - I Told You So
A strong feeling is starting to emerge that whatever the Labour leadeship does, the party is not going to win May's election. In spite of the unpopularity of the Conservative led coalition, the idea is taking hold that Labour is no longer the party of the working class, instead they represent professionals and academics and are thus an elitist movement.
German Chancellor Lashes Out at Anti-Islamification Marches as Support Grows
Floating Debris Is From Missing Air Asia Jet - Or Is It
As the tide of anti - Islamic feeling grows among the German working class has gained huge momentum since the day in October 2014 when in the city of Dresden two hundred 'like minded people' gathered to launch PEDIGA (Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of Europe), a movement to defend the nationality and culture of European nations and regions.
As a wave of comment on internet news suites about the similarities between the disappearance of an AirAsia Airbus, flight QZ8501 on a routine trip from Jave to singapore and the equally inexplicable disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 in the same area en route from Kuala Lumpur nine months ago, it was quite predictable that while there remains no trace of MH370, this time floating debrius and bodies have been found at the alleged crasah site.

Influential Germans Appeal Against Another War In Europe
While the mainstream media has been obsessing about the collapse in oil prices and celebrating the problems of Vladimir Putin's regime in Russia, and fanciful economic pundits have been burbling about all time high stock markets a group of prominent Germans are less concerned about mainstream sensationalism than by something that poses a much bigger threat to the immeditate future of Europe: the threat of the Obama administration pushing us into a war with Russia.
Will 2014 Go Down As The Year Propaganda Replaced Information?
Those of us who pay attention will have noticed that 2014 has topped all others for the manout of spin and propaganda spread by mainstream news organisations and government departments but also news took on a new aspect.

Donât believe American lies about Russia
What we are seeing in western media about the currency and oil price war being waged against Russia by the Obama administration in America is not only a very subjective version of events being presented by Washington spin doctors, it ignores the fact that though the USA and EU may have imposed sanctions on Russia, China, India, Iran, Turkey, all African and south American nations and most of south east Asia are still doing business with Moscow.
Another Montauk Monster? Mystery Creature Washes Up On California Beach.

Climate change has become a more fanatical and more dangerous religion that fundamentalist Christianity, Islam or Zionism. Its followers are prepared to destroy not just themselves but the entire human race and most life on earth before they will admit there is little substance in their dogmas, which are all based on 'evidence' from idols they call mathematical models, rather than on any real world evidence.
CO2 vs Temperature comparison over 400,000 years shows CO2 and warming are not linked

Everything The Science Whores Told You About Eating Fat Was A Lie.
We have been telling you so for years, but at last the world seems to be cathing up with The Daily Stirrer.

What Would George Orwell Think Of The Screeching Left's Horror At Plans To Shrink The State.
In part one of his classic social commentary, The Road To Wigan Pier, George Orwell wrote of the grinding poverty and appalling living conditions endured by people in industrial areas.

What Will It Take to Get You to Swallow GMO and Nanotech Foods?
Are you one of these "new technology rejecters"?

Evolution: Theory, Fact or Fiasco?
Much as I have faith in Charles Darwin's Theory Of Evolution as a feasible explanation of how diverse species originate (The Origin Of The Species) it annoys me when science fans insist "Evolution is not a theory, its a fact." Especially annoying of course is when they cite evolution to explain the origin of life on earth or the development of human intelligence. Even more annoying is their assumption that anyone questioning them is a young Earth creationist. Here are a few thoughts on some of evolution theory's inconsistencies ...
Why Food Sovereignty Should Not Be Handed To GMO Biotech Corporations
Most of the GM produce that is finding its way into the human food chain has been modified to make it resistant to herbicides (weed killer) and pesticides (insect killer) that are deadly to humans - just look at the warnings on a packet of garden weed killer or domestic fly spray if you want proof of that. And remember in bulk food production we are talking about industrial quantities of industrial strength toxins. Scientists on the corporate payroll assure us ...
Are Humans Becoming Extinct

some scientists, Guy McPherson included, down at the Climate Change conference who fear that climate disruption is so serious, with so many self-reinforcing feedback loops already in play, that humans are in the process of causing our own extinction.
