29 December 2011

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.

22 December 2011

by John de Roe

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.

Wave Of Sectarian Violence Kills Dozens In Baghdad

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.

The Daily Stirrer toild you two years ago this is exactly what would happen once the last American troops left. It was a racing certainty from the moment that jug eared streak of piss opened his stupid mouth, unleashed his uncontrollable ego and announced a pullout date.

No real news again today so here's a shocking story of dumbing down.

When exam boards spoonfeed answers to children there is no hope for education

.
The truly extraordinary thing about the latest exam board scandal is that the board in question felt it necessary to help children cheat. That is to say, the WJEC thought the questions it was setting in its GCSE exam in Information and Communications Technology were so difficult that children would only be able to cope if the answers were provided to their teachers in advance ...

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.

Swedish 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 70,000," 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 66,000 a year, raising 5m. It will affect 76 large shops. Well 66,000 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.

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.

Tories embrace Labour government poke nose strategy

by Ian R Thorpe

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 40 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 (772bn). 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 40 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.

WADDA WE WANT?
A REFERENDUM
WHEN DO WE WANT IT?

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.

On the lighter side we have two stories from the world of statgazing today:

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.

Footnote:
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.

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.

Outbreak of Democracy In St Petersburg, Russia, Outrages The Left by Ed Butt

Groups on the left of the political spectrum love to rant about equality buy on leftie farm as on Orwell's Animal Farm the left like to pick and choose which causes are more equal than other. Thus a new local law putting a restraint on gay propaganda in St. Petersburg, Russia has lefties, gays and lesbians wailing and gnashing teeth against this outbreak of democracy.

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.

Oxford don's Voltaire reference at heart of race discrimination case

It could only have happened in the cloistered world of Oxford University. A history tutors passing reference to a character in Voltaire, while he was considering candidates for the job of head chef at his college, has four years later become the focus of a race discrimination case. The reference, which can only be inmterpreted as a reference to somebody's unrealistic optimism has been twisted in the warped minds of the "progressive" left who say it refers to a stereotype for Afro Carribean males as being lazy and stupid.

Only Ten Days To Save The Euro

by John de Roe
The proposed Eurozone bail-out fund will fall short of the 1 trillion promised in October, as finance ministers seek ways to use IMF resources to underwrite the debts of southern Europes financial basket cases. We only have ten days left to save the Euro.

Europe is entering a crucial ten days to in which leaders must find a way to save the single currency if they are tp prevent the eurozone disintegrating, a leading EU monetary chief warned after finance ministers from the currency bloc admitted they may need IMF help to increase the firepower of their bailout fund. Can anyone save the Eurtozone from collapse as the Joker of Beijing tries to take over the world?

DA-DA-DA-DA-DA-DA-DA-DA-DA-DA-DA-DA Merkel.

The only prtoblem with that of course is the German taxpayers are sick of stumping up their hard earned to support the single European nation project so beloved of their own leaders and others. If the current government gives in to bdemands that they must hoist tax rates to stratospheric levels to save the single currency Mrs Merkel's ruling coalition will collapse and in the ensuing election Germany will swing to the right with Eurosceptic conservatives and radicals holding the balance of power in the Bundestag. Mrs Merkel's party would become so unpopular they would likely be consigned to the political widerness

"We are now entering the critical period of 10 days to complete and conclude the crisis response of the European Union," Economic and Monetary Affairs Commissioner Olli Rehn said on Wednesday as EU finance ministers met in Brussels.

His comments came as Gerard Lyons, chief economist at Standard Chartered, said: "The euro cannot survive in its present format. Throughout the year I have stressed that the world economy could suffer a double-dip if it was hit by one of three factors: an external shock, a policy mistake or a loss of confidence. Unfortunately, in recent months, the euro area has been hit by all three. And that is why the euro area will slip back into recession in 2012," he said in his Economic Outlook for November.

So a perfect storm for the single currency then. Well we all know what happened to George Cloony's boat in the film of that name.

Mr Rehn also warned that the scale of the downturn will be determined by eurozone leaders' policy actions and the extent to which confidence is hit. Confidence in Europe remained low in financial markets on Wednesday on disappointed at attempts to increase the firepower of the eurzone bailout fund. Italian and Spanish borrowing costs, having already passed the 7% danger level continued to rise as stock markets fell. Wolfgang Schauble, Germany's finance minister, said Europe's "big bazooka" rescue fund is not ready and won't stem the region's debt crisis.

Eurozone finance ministers, who were meeting ahead of the Ecofin summit today, acknowledged the 440bn (376bn) fund would not win support to leverage it up to 1 trillion. Its capacity would be between 500bn and 700bn instead a total that is unlikely to be big enough to rescue Spain and Italy.

The Coalition Is Packed With PR Men So Why Can't It Sell Reform

An excellent article on the problems in British society from (Lord) Norman Tebbbit, the old Tory political buriser. I never had much time for his politics of his party but have always admired people willing to speak their mind and challenge the orthodoxies of the day.

The press, radio, TV and the blogosphere will be filled for days with noisy comments on the state of the economy and the efforts of the Chancellor to pull it out of the mess left by the Great Borrower, Gordon Brown, and the architects of the euro disaster. Important as that is, there are other matters to be addressed. Some, like the great euro disaster, are not within our ability to put right. Indeed more and more people across the political divide are now concluding that the euro as it is cannot survive at all, and that without tremendous political and economic surgery, even a scaled down euro may be unable to survive for long. The best the UK can do is to avoid being dragged into that burning house and to make sure that the conflagration does not consume our own house. There are plenty of other matters crying out for attention. Despite all the promises and protestations, immigration is unchecked. While the Left wrings its hands at the appalling unemployment figures, it hides its face from the truth ...

We Might As Well Ask The CRU climate scientists to forcast the economic trends

by Ed Butt

He who forecasts all perils will never sail the seas (Eric Cantona)

As our finance expert John de Roe digests today's economic statement by Chancellor George Osborne we advise readers to ignore gloomy economic forecasts from supra national bodies with close political ties to the "New World Order".

Both the OECD (Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development) and the OBR (Office for Budget Responsibility) along with numerous other thinky tanky type thingies published their latest economic forecasts ahead of the Chancellors statement. These forecasts which are invariably gloomy and predict death and disaster for any nation which does not surrender its sovereignty to "The New World Order" elite of scientists, academics, politicians, financiers and bureaucrats, are invariably different from their previous forecasts but without ever acknowledging the previous forecasts were completely wrong. Unfortunately media commentators and political public relations advisers are taken in by the affectations of gravitas these people adopt and on their every word.

Arguments ensue about whether the government's deficit reduction plan can be salvaged, with pundits on each side pointing to different bits of the latest report to support their point of view. What seems to escaped everyone's attention is that in publishing predictions of a slide back into recession(which everybody except the OECD, OBR, other thinky tanky type people and the most Panglossian and wide eyed worshippers of the Obamesiah knew over two years ago) these academic "experts" with their infallible mathematical models are admitting that the economic forecasts in their previous reports were wrong to forecast a continues gradual recovery. They will not acknowledge this because it means their latest predictions using the same computers, same mathematical modelling software and the same techniques for manipulating data are also likely to be completely wrong. The lesson here, which everyone seems to ignore, is that economic forecasting is not merely an inexact science it's pure voodoo.

I'm not just saying this because the latest OECD report and, in all likelihood, the latest OBR report are generally unfavourable to the Government. I don't like the current British government any more than I liked the last one. I would not take the forecasts of economic think tanks any more seriously if they were predicted growth and a return to prosperity, easily available cheap credit and a sharp rise in property prices which would up my income from investments and rents. Quite simply it is all pie-in-the-sky, somebody who casts the runes would have as much chance of getting it right.

There are some regular commenters on all my blogs who are fond of telling me they would rather believe the predictions of mathematical modelling over the mumbo jumbo of people who cast the runes, study the stars or examine the entrails of sacrificed animals. While we should pity such people for they way they cling to a pathetic, irrational belief in reason, order and logic, we must respect their right to believe what they wish, we should not heed their threats that catastrophe will result if we do not all adopt their religion.

The odd thing is that anyone takes seriously the forecasts of organisations whose previous forecasts are so consistently inaccurate. It's almost as if the cilimate scientists of East Anglia University Climate Research Unit, (famed for the Climategate deleted emails and destroyed data scandal) popped up on the television and said, "We know we have been caught concealing data, obstructing Freedom Of Information requests, perverting the peer review process, telling pork pies and conspiring with equally corrupt colleagues to discredit people who challenged us and phishing for bigger research grants by manipulating data to give the answer our paymasters wanted and all our forecasts over the last thirty years have been wrong wrong on every, but we should not be judged on what has happened in the past, you can be sure it's going to snow in early November and Britain will have shitloads of show and record low temperatures, even colder than the record lows in November and December 2010 " Well they did, and it didn't. We have just had one of the mildest, driest Novembers on record.

Instead of politicians and business leaders judging they can safely ignore whatever they thinky tanky gravy train riders say, the people who put themselves forward as leaders show the mindset of people who are not even qualified to serve as followers, they run around like headless chickens, saying, "Snow? Snow? The nation will come to a standstill; or "Recession, the economy contracting, it's the end of civilisation as we know it. This can only end in disaster!"

For our forecasts of climate change or economic progress we should turn to the bookies. And they are offering long odds against catastrophic climate change in the next fifty years but are refusing to take bets on the economic performance of the developed nations because they say it would be like risking money on a three legged horse ridden by a blind jockey.

Should The USA Step In To Save The Eurozone?

Should the (US) Federal Exchange step in to save europe from financial disaster asks economic analyst Ambrose Evans Pritchard. The question might seem to be a straight yes or no answer but when you remenber Ameria's debt situaytion is as bad or possibly worse than Europe's the real complexities start to become visible.

The Euribor/OIS spread or`fear gauge is flashing red warning signals. Dollar funding costs in Europe have spiked to Lehman-crisis levels, leaving lenders struggling frantically to cover their $2 trillion (1.3 trillion) funding gap.

Americas money markets are no longer willing to lend to over-leveraged Euroland banks, or only on drastically short maturities below seven days. Exposure to French banks has been slashed by 69pc since May.

Italy faces a sudden stop in funding, forced to pay 6.5pc on Friday for six-month money, despite the technocrat take-over in Rome.

German Bund yields have risen to 59 basis points above Swedish bonds since Wednesdays failed auction. German debt has been relegated suddenly against Swiss, Nordic, Japanese, and US debt. As the Telegraph reported two weeks ago, Asian central banks and sovereign wealth funds are spurning all EMU bonds because they have lost confidence in a monetary system with no lender of last resort, coherent form of government, or respect for the rule of law.

Even if EU leaders could agree on fiscal union and joint debt issuance which they cant such long-range changes cannot solve the immediate crisis at hand. The push for treaty changes has become a vast distraction.

Read full article

Well as Mr. Evans Pritchard says, the push for treaty changes that will alter the political stucture of the EU and pave the way for the creation of a single European superstate has distracted leaders who should be focusing on saving the Eurozone's poorer nations from the debt crisis and moves to hamstring nations like Italy, Greece, Portugal, Ireland and soon, we hear, Spain and Belgium so they are unable to take the necessary actions to deal with their own economic circumstances has now dragged even the economic powerrhouse that is Germany into recession.

This economic crisis has always been lurking in the shadows, failure was programmed into the Eurozone when debtor nations like Italy and Greece were tied to the German economic machine, unable to take the poor nations traditional emergency exit from the burning building by devaluing their currency to reduce the burden of debt.

So once again The Daily Stirrer says "We told you so."

Forward To The Past With Clegg and Cameron's Youth Training Scheme

Teenagers To Be Given Jobs Funded By The Taxpayer

The Coalition's big idea for tackling the problem of unemployed teenagers is provoking "bben here before" reactions as people recognise it is a thinly disguised revival of the notorious Youth Training Schemes introduced by Margaret Thatcher's government in the 1980s. Trainees will have half their wages paid by the taxpayer if companies offer them a job.

Nick Clegg, the Deputy Prime Minister today announced the 1 billion scheme to pay firms more than 2,000 for each young unemployed person they hire. The payment effectively a taxpayer-funded bribe for companies is designed to get more than 400,000 young people into work.

The scheme will be funded, according to Mr. Clegg by freezing tax credits for up to three years, hitting millions of workers earning up to 28,000.

Yesterday it emerged that the number of so-called NEETs young people not in education, employment, or training has risen to 1.163?million. This represents an increase of 12 per cent over the past year.

Mr Clegg said that the government would not allow a generation to fall behind or young people to bear the brunt of the recession. Youth unemployment is an economic waste and a slow-burn social disaster, he said. We cant lose the skills and talent of our young people, right when we need them most. We cant afford to leave our young men and women on the scrap heap. We need the next generation to help us build a new economy."

He's talking bollocks of course, we have exported all the low skilled and starter jobs to low labour cost countries and so totally anhilated the traditional industries there are few apprenticeships available to provide a route into skilled work or middle management. Burger flipping is not really a career choice although McDonalds remain the biggest hirers of graduates in the British economy.

Like the defunct YTS, the coalition plan will raise concerns about firms securing cheap labour for unskilled menial jobs subsidised by the taxpayer. There will also be fears that companies will churn young workers, replacing those subsidised by taxpayers with new recruits once the government payments end. As we said above, been here before.

The Decline And Fall Of The Bureaucratic Empire

How Brussels Stifles Democracy in Europe - an essay from Daniel Hannan
How could so many clever people get it so wrong? The flaws in the euro project are not just clear with hindsight; they were visible at the outset and were widely pointed out. It was never going to be possible to jam widely divergent economies into a single monetary policy. It was plainly reckless to invite Italy and Greece to join the new currency when their government debt was at twice the permitted level of 60 per cent of GDP. Plenty of doubters said so at the time. Yet, in every national parliament, in every central bank, in every university faculty, in every television editorial conference, there was a collective suspension of disbelief.

But the cuts will reduce numbers of managers and administrators, not nurses and front line staff.

Scientists Lied To Us Again, Paracetemol Does Kill

by Ian Thorpe

People who habitually self medicate for chronic pain by taking more than the recommended daily maximum dose of paracetamol could be at a higher risk of dying or permanently damaging their internal organs and nervous system than those who take a one-off overdose of the drug, a study has revealed.

The danger arises because the so-called staggered overdoses are more difficult for doctors to diagnose and therefore treat.

Vulnerable Old People Routinely Abused By Carers

Results from a year-long inquiry into standards of care for the elderly at home how clear evidence of pensioners and vulnerable people being deprived of food and drink, handled roughly, humiliated and even robbed by people employed to care for them. Many incidents amounted to "abuses of human rights", which left elderly people feeling profoundly depressed, humiliated, in tears and even expressing "a desire to die", the report said.

The Equality and Human Rights Commission warns that care workers often spend just 15 minutes with an elderly person, ticking off pre-arranged "tasks" in an approach that displayed "chronic disregard" for the person's dignity.

In one case, an elderly blind man complained two council carers were talking to each other over his head, leaving him feeling like "a lump of meat". In another, a 76-year-old woman with advanced cancer was told her care worker could not prepare her a microwave meal because of "health and safety" rules.

Baroness Greengross, the commissioner responsible for the report, told The Daily Telegraph that 250,000 vulnerable pensioners in England were receiving "poor or very poor" standards of care at home.

The findings represent the latest in a series of scandals to hit the industry that has grown around caring for the exoloding number of old people in England. A series of damning inquiries by inspectors highlighted the failure of NHS hospitals to treat older patients with dignity, leaving them dehydrated and malnourished. While medical scoience poses and preens as the latest increaces in longevity are announced we see another demonstation of the great failing of scientists. They are so obsessed with their own cleverness they never think of what consequences migt result from their self aggrandizing work.

The 115-page report, published yesterday, estimated that only half of the 500,000 people receiving home help with tasks such as washing, dressing and cooking were satisfied with the quality of their support.

But "significant shortcomings" in the way councils commissioned services from private care firms and nursing agencies led to breaches of basic human rights for "hundreds of thousands" of frail pensioners, it said.

The report, which gathered evidence from 1,254 individuals, local authorities, care providers and other groups in England, reported:

Older people were not being given adequate support to eat and drink, while a shortage of time for visits meant some were suffering "neglect".

Money was "systematically stolen over a period of time" in some cases.

Carers showed "chronic disregard for older people's privacy and dignity".

Staff were "talking over" older people, sometimes on mobile phones, or patronising them.

Examples of "physical abuse" included "rough handling" and "unnecessary force".

Lady Greengross highlighted "disgusting" examples of age discrimination in the way councils organised care for vulnerable elderly people. While young disabled adults were often taken out of their homes on trips, the elderly were almost always left for hours alone at home, she said.

"We are talking about a quarter of a million people who are getting either very poor or poor care. Some of them are too frightened to complain. Some of them wouldn't know how to."

Lady Greengross warned that too often care workers were constrained by a "task-oriented" system, in which they are allocated no more than 15 minutes for a visit and by a box ticking mindset among their managers. This meant many pensioners were being deprived of "basic social interaction".

The commission called for a loophole in the Human Rights Act to be closed to require councils to agree human rights clauses in contracts with groups providing care workers.

The charity Age UK condemned the "shameful" findings, while Liz Kendall, the shadow minister for care, said the report portrayed "a service stretched to the limit". She urged ministers to join cross-party talks to devise a solution.

Thomas Cook About To Go Bust, Meeting With Banks As Business Dries Up

by Cleo Hart

The world's oldest and probably most respected travel firm Thomas Cook saw shares drop by more than 50pc after the struggling European tour operator said it was in talks with its banks regarding its financial future. Cook's reported trading has deteriorated and its cash position weakened so far its position is untenable.

"The company is in discussions with its principal banks with regard to its financial facilities during the seasonal low period of cashflow in the travel business," it said in a statement on Wednesday. The holiday group has issued a number of profit warnings this year and parted ways with its long-standing chief executive.

A spokesman for the firm added: "While the Company currently remains in compliance with its financing covenants, it also intends to seek agreement from its lending banks to adjustments that will improve its resilience if trading conditions remain difficult."

Thomas Cook said it would delay publication of its full-year results, originally due on Thursday, until the discussions are concluded. It is expected full-year operating profit will be in line with previous guidance. The vagueness of these statements gives a clue how bad things are.

In September, Thomas Cook suspended dividend payments to rebuild its balance sheet.

Manny Fontenla-Novoa lost his job as Thomas Cook chief executive in August after the third profits warning of the year, triggered by the under-performance of its UK business and political unrest in key tourist markets such as Egypt and Tunisia.

The final months of the year are a time when cash inflow at the tour operator is usually weak because it is a quiet time for bookings.

Shares in the group tumbled 51.5pc in early trading today.

Austerity for 10 years as no 'quick fix' for Britain, Reform warns

by Ian Thorpe

An economic Think Tank has warned Britain needs 10 years of austerity to fix its economic problems. Reform questioned Coalition plans to restore growth by triggering a building boom with taxpayers money and urged George Osborne to stick to his programme of spending cuts.

Suming up the prospects for the economic recovery as "bleak", Reform said that "slow growth is inevitable given the levels of debt the nation is burdened with". It added: "Even under the best economic scenario, the austerity programme should be at least a 10-year project with the first parliamentary term achieving deficit reduction and the second consolidating the gains." One has only to look at recent Daily Stirrer reports on the plight of the Eurozone and the state of the U.S. economy as President Obama continues strugling to understand that reading words from an autocue does not actually fix any problems.

Declaring "austerity is the new normal", the think-tank stressed that the Government "must avoid the temptations of quick fixes and inconsistency" if it is to attract the business investment that will drag the country back to health. "There is a view that the recovery from the financial crisis should have been largely instantaneous and painless but this is clearly unrealistic," the Reform press release said. "An excessive emphasis on quick fixes prioritising immediate wants while postponing hard decisions is one reason the UK economy is in the mess it is in. Inconsistency increases uncertainty and uncertainty reduces firms' incentives to invest and expand."

In its paper, The Long Game, Reform argued that there is little the Chancellor can do to stimulate the recovery bar holding a strict line on fiscal discipline, simplifying taxes and regulations, and maintaining consistent policies. Patrick Nolan, chief economist, said: "Mistakes made over the last decade mean that the UK now needs to go through a long period of low growth."

The think-tank also raised doubts about the wisdom of plans to reschedule 200bn of infrastructure spending, saying that "taking a 'build it and they will come' approach is a dangerous and potentially wasteful stance". The Prime Minister yesterday confirmed that the Chancellor will announce incentives for infrastructure investment in his autumn statement next week.

Why Obama's Supercommittee faild to cut the deal on cutting the budget

by James Dahl
A day before Obama's much hyped bipartisan congressional supercommittee hit its drop-dead deadline for producing a plan to cut trillions of dollars from the US deficit, and only days after the country passed the $15 trillionth milestone of borrowed money, panel members took to the airwaves and billboards not to negotiate a last-minute deal, but to blame the other guys for messing everything up.

Theres a 99 percent chance this goes belly-up tomorrow, a senior Democratic aide told reporters, describing a process in which Republicans refused to negotiate any deal without an extension of the Bush tax cuts, now set to expire in 2013. Its not entirely clear how its going to fail, but its going to fail.

What If Brussels Apponted All European Governments

by Ian Thorpe

Following the imposition of Eurocrat governments in Athens and Rome, Quentin Letts indulges in a little conceit, wondering what a Brussels-backed British government would look like. His roll-call of the oily intellectuals Europhile Establishment is so incisive that, having begun his piece snorting with laughter, I finished it alarmed that he might be putting ideas into people's heads

What if the EU chose our cabinet too? As a Brussels power grab leaves Italy run by officials... imagine if it happened here what bland, smooth face slimeballs would run our country. They would make the current crop of spineless, principle - free politicos look like the latest shiney, highly tuned products from the charisma factory. It has been coming for a long time. I remember the last permanent job I held before going freelance as a consultant. The company, one of Europe's foremost electrical appliance firms wanted to keep its reputation as a fair employer and so rather than clear out the dead wood it asked who would be willing to be made redundant. I didn't fancy twenty years looking at the same faces in the same office and so put my name down. The generous package would buy me time to get established as a freelance.

My manager was appalled that my application was accepted. "How can you let guys like this go, people who can think for themselves, aren't afraid of responsibility and are prepared to make decisions, and yet keep time servers?" I was told he said in a meeting with Human Resources. He was told, "The future of this company lies with people who can work to procedures. People who go their own way cause problems.

And so we have gone on in that direction for the past thirty years.

With most of Europe in hock to its Franco-German masters and the prospect of a Federal Superstate coming closer every day, democracy it seems is so last century.. The political changes on the Continent this month make the rule of Russias Czar's up until 1917 look positively liberal (I mean that in the David Llloyd George sense not the Barack Obama crypto - Stalinist sense).

The newly appointed Greek prime minister, Lucas Papademos, is a wealthy economist and former vice-president of the European Central Bank. He holds nothing so sweaty as an elected position having been foisted on the Greek people by the EU in a Coup de Bureaucrat. The new Prime Minister of Italy, Mario Monti has never had to trouble himself with the the tawdry populism of campaigning. Not a single member of the new Italian Cabinet has been elected to the Italian parliament. Mandates? Who needs elections, to get the governments the people driving "the agenda" want, all they have to do is engineer a debt crisis.

Sure, it's a long game, ten years has elapsed since the Euro replaced the individual currencies of Europe's sovereign states, ten long years for the farce to progress to its inevitable conclusion, the ending predicted by anyone who had the slightest understanding of economics.

"The agenda" was never about economic stability of course, it was about the creation of a single European nation to be ruled not by an elected government but by an appointed elite .This is the age of technocrats, bureaucrats and academics not elected politicians. Silly, outmoded notions like one person, one vote have no place in this Brave New World. A committee of faceless pen pushers and bean counters holds all the votes.

But consider what kind of a government we might have if the bean counter of Brussels were to appoint our next government. The high and mid level offices would go to federalists. Blair, a committed one worlder and supporter of supranationalism in spite of his warmongering ways, might return as Prime Minister. Peter Mandelson, the collaborator - in chief as Foreign Secretary, Europhile Chris Patten as Home Secretary, Fred Goodwin, the discredited banker who steered Royal Bank of Scotland to bankruptcy, Chancellor of the Exchequer?

If you think what we are going through now is a nightmare, what lies in wait across the channel is worse.

Gerhard Schrder, Chancellor of Germany, January 1999.

Future referendums will be ignored whether they are held in Ireland or elsewhere' : Valery Giscard d'Estaing (former President of France and President of the EU Convention) speaking after the EU the rules of which prevent any changes affecting national sovereignty being implemented until they are ratified by all member states had refused to accept the rejection of the Lisbon Treaty after Irelan, they only nation to grant it's voters a referendum. Ireland was simply told the result of their referendum was wrong and they must hold another.)

"Our continent has seen successive attempts at unifying it: Caesar, Charlemagne and Napoleon, among others. The aim has been to unify it by force of arms, by the sword. We for our part seek to unify it by the pen. Will the pen succeed where the sword has finally failed? " Valery Giscard d'Estaing (again), in a speech in Aachen accepting the Charlemagne Prize for European integration, 29th May 2003

"The good thing about not calling it (the Lisbon Treaty) a Constitution is that no one can ask for a referendum on it." Giuliano Amato, former Italian Prime Minister and Vice-Chairman of the Convention which drew up the Constitution, speech to the London School of Economics, 20th February 2007
The Lisbon treaty was agreed in order to advance the integration agendsa after a Proposed EU Constitution which would have effectively created a single nation of the EU sovereign states was rejected in referenda by the electorates of France and The Netherlands)

"It [the Euro] is a decisive step towards ever closer political and institutional union in Europe. Above all, it is political." Carlo Azeglio Ciampi, Italian Finance Minister, The Daily Telegraph, 1st January 1999.

"Sometimes I like to compare the EU as a creation to the organisation of empire. We have the dimension of empire." Jos Manuel Barroso, President of the European Commission, EUobserver, 10 July 2007

"We know that nine out of 10 people will not have read the Constitution and will vote on the basis of what politicians and journalists say. More than that, if the answer is No, the vote will probably have to be done again, because it absolutely has to be Yes.

The Great Conciliator Promises New , Bigger Wars For America

. by Ed Butt
Barack Obama has pledged to expand America's military presence in the Asia Pacific region as a "top priority" as he declared the US intends to shift its focus from the Middle East. The US president said America was "all in" for the coming Asian century and the region was crucial to his country's economic recovery. He also made clear he will continue his Orwellian foreign policy initiative of endless war.

"As we end today's wars, I have directed my national security team to make our presence and missions in the Asia-Pacific a top priority," he said.

"Reductions in US defence spending will not I repeat, will not come at the expense of the Asia-Pacific project. Our enduring interests in the region demand our enduring presence in this region,"

In a 25-minute address to the Australian parliament described by the White House as an "anchor speech" for his 9-day visit across the region, Mr Obama said the US "is a Pacific power and we are here to stay."

Well that's an object lesson on how to piss off the Chinese. I'm not the only one to think so either. Speaking in the guarded language of international diplomacy, former Australian defence official, Professor Hugh White, from the Australian National University, said the deployment to Darwin was "not a wise move" and could heighten distrust between the US and its potential Asian rival.

"Everybody in Asia wants the US to stay engaged and nobody wants to live under Chinese hegemony," he told the British journalists, adding "But nobody wants the US-China relationship to become contested, because nobody wants to have to choose between the two, especially not Australia. We love US primacy if it is uncontested as we have enjoyed it for the past 40 years that is the era that is ending as China power grows."

Mr Obama said the US would seek to co-operate with China but would speak candidly about human rights and territorial disputes."

Amid growing political pressure over the nation's stalled growth and spiralling debt which has now topped $US15 trillion Mr Obama said Asia marked "the future" and was crucial to restoring America's ailing economy. So why is he so determined to piss off China, the regions other great power, India whose Prime Minister gets regular lectures from Obie on how India should be run not for the benefit of its own people but for the benefit of the Obama administration.

Is there anybody in the world who does not yet understand Obama is a total turd and a suppurating syphilis sore on the bell end of humanity? His paymasters, the New World Order promoting Bilderberg Group say dance and Obie starts capering around like a caricature negro in a 1930 comedy film. He will stop at nothing, no matter how damaging it is to western interests, in order to big himself up.

Youth Unemployment Highest Since 1986

by John de Roe

Youth unemployment increased to 1.02m between July and September as was widely predicted. This figure is the highest number of young people unemployed since 1986. There were 1.02m unemployed 16 to 24 year olds in the three months to September 2011, up 67,000 from the three months to June 2011.

The Government will inevitably come under increasing pressure to explain why 21.9pc of those aged under 25 are unable to find jobs.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) said the figures were the highest since the current method of counting was introduced in 1992 but earlier data, calculated on a different criteria, showed youth unemployment last reached these levels in 1986. Put simply, the figures mean almost two fifths of those aged 16 to 17 are out of work, while a fifth of 18 to 24 year-olds are jobless. Even stripping out the number of young people in education but looking for a job, the youth jobless rate is still more than double that of other age groups, at 20.6pc.

In another set of catastrophic labour market figures, total unemployment increased by 129,000 over the period to reach 2.62m, or 8.3pc, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) said today. This is the largest quarterly increase since the three months to July 2009 and marks a 17-year high in joblessness. Long-term unemployment, that is those out of work for a year or more, has jumped by 31,000 over three period to 868,000, while almost half a million people (422,000) have been unemployed for two years or more - a 29pc rise compared to a year ago.

The number of people claiming Jobseeker's Allowance last month increased by 5,300 to 1.6m, said the ONS - the eighth month in a row the claimant count has increased. However, this was a smaller increase than in previous months.

There was further evidence in the information published that the UK's North-South divide is worsening came when the largest decrease in employment was in the North East. The only notable increase in employment was in the South West, the statistics showed.

So what is going on? We have commented repeatedly in The Daily Stirrer on the follies of successive governments since 1980 in pursuing policies that rewarded corporate interests for killing jobs in the domestic economy, exporting work in traditional industries to low labour cost economies and making Britain too reliant on financial services and debt driven consumption, and the spineless way politicians have caved in to unelected cabals like the Politically Correct Though Police (a.KO.a civil rights hustlers) in allowing the collectivist left to hijack the education system, the institutions of government and the legal system.

In addition to burdening the wealth creators with this burden of bureaucracy we have also hamstrung employers with stupid European laws like the human rights act, the equalities bill and the employment act. Is it any wonder nobody is hiring?

Debt Crisis: UK Growth Forecast Slashed

by Ian Thorpe
16 November 2011

The Bank of England has slashed its forecast for growth in the UK economy in the light of new jobless figures and other economic indicators. The Bank warned that the absence of a credible solution to the eurozone debt crisis poses the biggest single risk to the economy.

Publishing its latest quarterly Inflation Report, the Bank cut its forecast for 2011 growth to about 1pc from its August forecast of about 1.7pc. It forecast growth of about 1pc for 2012, down from 2pc, and forecast 2.5pc growth in 2013, down from its earlier forecast of 3pc. What The Bank does not tell us is that while inflation is running head of growth we have a worse outcome than rampant inflation eroding savings and earnings, we have deflation in which the economy is contracting as prices fall simply because nobody is spending and thus profits from which wages, salaries and dividends are paid are stagnant if not actually being cut.This is just as The Daily Stirrer has predicted. We know what can be done to solve the problem too but the financial and political establishment will not do it because it would be an admission they had got everything absolutely wrong for the past thirty years or more.

Sir Mervyn King, the Banks Governor, said growth over the next few quarters was likely to be "markedly weaker" than the Bank had previously thought, as businesses postpone investment and households become more reluctant to spend. UK activity was likely to be "broadly flat" until the middle of next year, he said, but there was no way to quantify the effects of the "most extreme outcomes associated with developments in the euro area." If we were entirely dependent on the Eurozone as some of our leaders including committed New World Order supporters Cammers, Clegg and Miliband would like us to be, our future would indeed be bleak.

Fortunately we have the option to pull back from the Euronazi experiment, cosy up with our natural allies, Australia and Canada, strengthen ties with the Commonwealth and lead a move for a regrouping of EFTA, the old, not bureaucratic, non - New World Order free trade grouping. A European free trade zone is a great idea, a European single political nation incorporating all current EU members, the rest of the former Soviet Union basket case republics and stretching into the middle east and north Africa which is what the Portuguese Marxist EU President Barroso and the other unelected bureaucrats who run the European Union are talking about right now (and Cammers, Clegg and co are involved in those discussions) is the worst possible idea. The last European to consider such a notion was a little Austrian guy named Adolf Hitler.

So with public opinion in the UK overwhelmingly anti EU, will Cammers have the guts to tell the New World Order oligarchs to fuck the fucking fuck off or, more likely perhaps, will the Conservatives have the guts to dump Cameron and get a leader who as Prime Minister will make sure his first loyalty is to the people of Britain and not to the supranational elitists who want to rule the world but shun responsibility.

Britain To Become A Nation Of Renters?

by Xavier Connolly

Think back to the heyday of Maggie thatcher when government propaganda was pumping out the message that people who rented their homes were not simply second class citizens but actually lower in the scheme of things than plague carrying rats. If you were not buying your house you were not a human being, the thinking went. And people were buying anything that looked remotely house like. I remember one person who worked in the organisation I was with buying a "rural conversion property" thinking they would renovate and make a fortune.

The house had not been lived in for many years. Still no problem, get the builders in, get a decent roof on it, replaster, modern plumbing etc. Alas no, not only was the property a grade 2 listed building, its walls were wattle and daub, i.e. clay mixed with straw daubed over willow wattles or hurdles. And the willow was rotten which meant the daub tended to crumble as soon as it was touched.

No worries thought the aspiring property developer, there's plenty of land. We'll just leave the old place to quietly decay and go back to nature while we build a nice detached home on the adjoining land. Alas no planning permission was forthcoming. The council may have been ready to reconsider, they said, once the original property was renovated. But any attempt to renovate would result in the listed building falling down and the person responsible would face the wrath of not only the law but the jam and Jerusalem brigade.

I left that organisation before the story was resolved and never learned the outcome. The last I knew was the buyer was threatened with loss of their home as debts mounted. Such was the madness of the 1980s property bubble. The new millennium property boom is still imploding and may turn out to be worse. But at least one good thing has come of it. People who rent houses are no longer lower than plague carrying rats in fact renting is once more considered a sensible option for many people.

More than half (54pc) of Britons questioned in a poll commissioned by Grainger, one of the UK's largest private residential landlords, expect that in 15 years more people in the UK will be renting their homes than owning. Which is exactly where we were before Maggie started flogging off council houses at knockdown prices.

The breakdown shows around 30pc of homes are rented and and 70pc are in private ownership (this is always misleading, most are being bought on mortgages so the mortgage payers cannot be said to truly own their homes until the final payment is made). With social (council and housing association) renting expected to stay fairly stable at 16pc, the survey implies that private renters currently representing 17pc of the market will double by 2016, said a representative of Grainger.

There is a new housing reality dawning on Britain: the financial crisis has tightened mortgage lending; house prices continue to be uncertain; and, frankly there are simply too few homes for the demand, said Nick Jopling, the company's executive property director. More and more people are renting.

The survey found that 40pc of people now see renting as a first step on to the housing ladder. In addition, 92pc of young people polled (18 to 34-year-olds) said they saw renting as the only way they can move out from their parents homes.

The younger generation was also less likely to place they buying of a house on a twenty five year mortgage first among their priorities as they did 25 years ago. Grainger saw this as evidence that the "stigma" of renting is dissipating over the generations.

So How Is That Hopey Changey Green-weeny Thing Going Over The Pond?

When Barack Hussein Obama was elected to the Presidency the first thing he did after capering around singing "Oh Dem Golden Slippers," and "De Camptown Races" was to embark on a programme of stimulus spending which he said would kick start the American economy. He would do this, his aides promised by investing in "shovel ready projects" (i.e. hiring guys with ripped oiled bodies. dressing them in fetish harness and gimp masks and having them shovel money into a bottomless pit) and the green economy. This, as American's now know involved giving away lots of their hard earned to his old friends and the most generous campaign donors.

But were these always fit and proper people to receive government investment in the form of loan guarantees?

A company set up with $500 million of Obama's stimulus money to make and sell solar panels that would generate electricity from sunshine and feed it into the national grid declared itself bankrupt in September and in the wake of that a scandal is brewing with allegations of cronyism, corruption and financial irresponsibility flying round Washington and sticking like shit to anyone they come in contact with. The Solyndra scandal and the bankruptcy of other "green economy" ventures carries echoes of the dotcom boom in which businesses reliant on an unproven technology were set up with vast cash investments though they had no saleable product, no design, no realistic patents, no revenue stream and no business plan. In many cases these companies did not even have an idea, just an idea that if they could come up with an idea it would be cool to raise some investment funds and go into business.

Solyndra went bust having lost all of the tax payers hard earned by borrowing up to its credit limit and spending the money on researching luxury offices with en suite Jacuzzis, cocaine parties, expensive sports cars, expensive champagne and expensive women. Unfortunately the details of their downfall are sub judice.

Boggart Blog however managed to get a transcript of the inaugural meeting of another greenbubble startup, CaliforniaSunshine Corp.

Hey Jughead, dude, hows it going?

Cool.

Me and the guys, dude, we were just talking about getting in on this green energy thing and, like, getting some stimulus money.

Cool.

We thought solar panels was good, I mean how hard can it be? Sheet of glass, some of those little buttony things, wire and plastic frames. It's a cinch.

Cool

So we thought seeing you, dude, met the Prez one you could, like, call him up.

Cool.

(dip dippydip dip dipittydip dip dip dipidip ... ring-ring ring-ring ring-ring ... Hey yeah, it that The White House ... cool, is the Prez dude there ... a name? Barry ... yeah I guess that would be President Obama, tell im it's Jughead from L.A. ... cool.

They just gonna find him guys.
Hey, hi Prez dude, it's Jughead. The thing is Barry me and some of my buddies were talking 'bout setting up a green energy company and we were, like, wondering if you could help out with investment, what with you being into green stimulus and all. ... yeah, Jughead ... yeah you do know me ... sure you do, we met in a toilet in MacArthur Park, I get you snort a line of coke off my ... yeah, back in the closet now, OK, I unnastand. Anyway like I said, me and my buddies need some investment to get our solar panels factory up and running and my ol' buddy Barry was the first person I thought of ... Yeah, MacArthur Park ... yeah right off of it ... how much? Well how much you off'rin' ...Two hunnert and fifty million dollars, wow, cool, hey that's ..What? .... just a moment Barry, Mr. President, my budd ... partners need to speak to me.

"Never accept the first offer Jughead, first rule of dealing - and business; go for more, go for double,"

For fuck's sake guys, two hunnert and fifty million is more'n we'll ever make.

Yeah but if he offered two fifty mill for starters he's prepared to go higher. Go for double

Double, that's like ... er ...

"Half a billion Jughead, tell him it's going to take half a billion to get up and running.

Hi Mr. Prez Barry dude, yeah, our accountant says it will take half a billion, 500 million. You're our only hope of gettin' that kind of cash Barry, if you can't stretch to that I guess I'll have to write a book about my life or somp'n ... Yeah, the toilet in Macarthur Park ... yeah that was the date ... you will! Wow cool. all of it! Wow cool. Details? Yeah, I'll hand you to my buddy, he has a PayPal account.

Well, those of you who feel shocked and betrayed at the way the Obama Presidency has turned out don't get any sympathy from The Daily Stirrer. We did warn you of what would happen if you voted for him. MORE on the Solyandra bankruptcy.

What The Death Of Michael Jackson Says About Us All

by Ian R Thorpe

Michael Jacksons last words, we learned as Conrad Murray his doctor was convicted of "Involuntary Manslaughter" and details of the trial emerged this week, were: Please, please, let me have some milk. That does not sound creepy in any way until you know that the emotionally crippled man-child was spoke in a kind of code, making everything that was deranged and sleazy in his life sound as if it was childish and innocent. Michael Jackson's milk was propofol, a powerful anaesthetic that happens to be while in colour when in liquid form.

The Growth Versus Environment Dichotomy

by Ian Thorpe and John de Roe

The latest signs of a global economic slowdown (the Newspeak term for a slump) have emerged in news from the far east. Hong Kong's GDP figures showed a Q3 contraction. The economy grew 4.3pc in the third quarter, down from 5.1pc in the second quarter and 7.5pc in the first.

The HK government said exports dropped off sharply "amid an increasingly austere global economic environment."

In France the fact that Standard and Poor's reported cut in that nation's triple A credit rating was an error has made little difference in bond markets. France is being squeezed by traders worried that it's economy, already struggling to stay ahead of its own tsunami of debt, will be suck as French taxpayers are saddled with a mega share of the stratospheric debts of nations like Italy, Spain and Greece.

The yield on French ten-year bonds is just under 3.5pc - against nearer 7pc for Italy, 2.2pc for the UK and 1.8pc for Germany - leaving the widest gap between Germany and France for 20 years. And in 2012 the Republic will have to find 281bn euros to finance matured debt according to figures from economic analysts.

Bankers and investors however regard all this fuss about whether France keeps its AAA rating is largely academic. Most of them understand the French AAA is in reality already gone. France can hardly service it's own debt let alone take on anybody else's.

The Portugese neo - Stalinist President of the EU, Jos Manuel Barroso has been warning that a eurozone collapse will send the continent and the free world into a prolonged economic slump. The collapse of the Euro single currency would cause a crash that would instantly wipe out half of the value of Europes economy, plunging the continent into a depression as deep as that of the 1930s, the president of the European Commission has warned.

Mr Barroso said in Berlin this week that if the euro area of the 17 member states or the wider 27-country EU broke apart the estimated initial cost would be up to 50 per cent of European gross domestic product.

The result of such an economic shock would be emergence of extremism and divisions within Europe, the former Portuguese prime minister told his German audience.

Just as the founding fathers had a vision of Europe after two devastating world wars, we must also now act with resilience and with vision towards a Europe that is strong but open, he said. Now is Germanys time to show that it is fighting the cause of a strong, integrated and competitive Europe.

A eurozone crash, the commission has predicted, would see 10 trillion wiped off the value of the European economy, a catastrophe that would send living standards plummeting to the levels of Latin America.

Barroso is of course a committed supporter of the notion of a global government led not by elected representatives of the people but of bureaucratic appointees representing the wealthy, political and academic elites. This in effect is the scientific dictatorship that early twentieth century sci fi author H G Wells wrote of, President Eisenhower alluded to in his farewell speech and that Aldous Huxley predicted in his dystopian novel Brave New World.

Meanwhile across the pond, U.S Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said Europe remains the central challenge to global growth and must move quickly to restore financial stability.

Geithner, who has been in Honolulu stuffing himself with gourmet food and swilling it down with rare wines while staying in a luxury hotel attending the 21-nation Asia- Pacific Economic Cooperation conference, said in prepared remarks that the APEC countries are all directly affected by the Eurozone crisis and he encouraged them to take steps to strengthen growth in the face of these pressures from Europe.

Addressing a news conference he said:

"As the United States continues to work through the problems that caused our crisis and Europe confronts a period of slower growth, Asian economies will need to do more to stimulate domestic demand growth -- both so they are less vulnerable to slowdowns, such as the situation in Europe, and so they can continue to contribute to global growth.

These economies, including the United States, have the capacity to do things now to make growth stronger both to offset some of the pressures theyre facing in Europe but also because the world as a whole - even when Europe stabilizes you are going to see growth damaged by the magnitude of the crisis so far. So there is a very strong rationale in those economies that have the capacity to do it to act now to strengthen growth."

Now here we see a politician banging his head against the brick wall of the global dichotomy. Only last week, in response to news that carbon dioxide emissions had increased again the national administration Geithner is part of, Papa Bammy's Pandemonium Carnival the Obama Administration, were screaming about how we must reduce carbon emissions. Yet everything, every industrial process, every human activity has a carbon footprint. What the elite are asking for is to have their cake, gorge on it, throw it up and eat it again.

Growth or saving the planet, it's the elitists of big finance, politics and the academic world, the experts who presume to tell us how we must live our lives,who must make the choice about what we save. And yet these pusillanimous poltroons consistently try to shift blame for their failure to even foresee the consequences of their actions onto the public.

Berlusconi Admits Defeat But Will Italy Be The Loser?

by Ed Butt

Silvio (Don Vito) Berlusconi has often been given the benefit of the doubt by Italians having survived numerous sex scandals, allegations of corruption and having links with organised crime and worst perhaps, humiliating his country through appalling behaviour. We don't need to remind you (but we're going to because it's fun) that only a few weeks ago, as fellow European leaders tried to find a solution to Italy's debt problem, Berlusconi called the person he must have onside if Italy is to have any chance of recovery, German leader Angela Merkel, an "unfuckable lardarse."

Italy will be better off without such a leader you might well say, but will they? With Berlusconi stepping down and his ruling coalition in disarray and unable to agree an austerity program to control the debt, the likely winners in elections due to be held early next year are a coalition of socialists, comunists and greens. And their plan for reducing Italy's massive debt burden is to borrow the money they need from China and Germany.

Somehow we get the impression we have not seen or heard the last of Snr. Berlusconi.

High Speed Rail Links For Britain

The obnly news that attracted our attention today isThe House of Commons Transport Committee's backing of government plans to build new high-speed rail link from London via Birmingham to Manchester, Liverpool, Sheffield and Leeds. It can be anticipated the lines would be extended to Scotland and new lines to serve the eastern and western population centres added. .

The committee said there was a "good case" for HS2 which would feature 250mph, 1,100-passenger trains running from London to Birmingham and then on to the other cities. Some residents and councils bitterly oppose the 34 billion project which they say would carve through picturesque countryside. The Government is due to make a decision on the route before the end of this year.

We have two reservatons, first why are the steering group looking at using Mag Lev technology which would provide an even faster trip, second, what is the point of building new rail links when few people can afford to use the railways at peak times now? Air travel on internal fights does not save time, you may spend less time in the air but the haul from city centres tothe airports and them from Heathrow into London more than doubles journey times.

And as we are (or should be) aware, air travel enjoys a massive subsidy. While we poor punters pay cripping prices for fuel because of the 300% added to the basic cost by various taxes, aircraft fuel is exempted from tax.

Let's get real. Renationalise the railways, build Mag Lev links for passenger and light freight traffic and use the old, slower lines for heavy and bulk goods. It's called a transport policy.

Britain will be banished to "The Outer Limits" Of Europe If Plan To Save The Euro Goes Ahead.

The big issue broadcast news and the papers have picked up on today is the Deustschland Uber Alles aspect of the plan to save the Euro. The Daily Stirrer reported this yesterday but first warned on the German superstate that would result from bailout plans last month. Now some people might think we a just being anti - German. On the contrary, kudos to Hausfrau Merkel, she is doing what she believes to be best to protect the interests of her people.

If only our Europhile suck - up artist leaders had the courage to do the same we would all feel a lot more secure.

A document leaked to British media representatives shows that under changes already agreed to in the Lisbon Treaty (without any of the electorates of member nations being consulted of course because the neo - Nazi unelected bureaucrats of Brussels are no fans of democracy,) eurozone countries will have to vote as a caucus on changes to European policy and treaty arrangements. Thus the German led Euro zone will have a permanent in-built majority in the EU's main decision-making body, The Council of Ministers, from November 2014.

Britain will be unable to block a plethora of new laws even it if it joins together with other countries not in the eurozone - risking severe damage, in particular, to the City of London. EU neo Nazi leaders have already threatened to shaft Britain's finance industry with new laws and regulations that Britain will not be able to veto. Any sane person might think that alone would have Cameron and Co. backpeddaling from Europe like crazy but no, spineless Cammers is pushing a global government agenda while the pusillanimous pustule Clegg is still shilling for us to join the Euro so we can go bankrupt with all the other single currency basket cases.

The rule changes now proposed will virtually ensure that the EU becomes a "two speed" operation with Britain in convoy with Sweden and several former Soviet nations in the slow lane - even without the greater "fiscal integration" expected inside the eurozone as its 17 countries bring their tax and spending affairs closer together. Anyone remember the story of the tortoise and the hare? In the slow lane is sometimes a good place to be although not as good as out of this project to establish a global regime of oligarchic collectivism altogether.

It is the threat of "caucus" voting, according, which has sparked recent activity in the Foreign Office as officials look at ways of "repatriating" powers - particularly on employment and social affairs, from Brussels to Westminster. But why stop there, lets have a referendum asking the question "Do you think Britain should leave the EU, continued membership of which which will result in our country becoming a vassal state of the unelected bureaucrats of Brussels?

And the voting option? YES or YES.

EU Threatens UK Business Freedom: "We'll make UK Cut Bosses Bonuses" say Brussels Bureaucrats We hear from people with contacts in the EU cesspits of power that the unelected bureaucrats who control the European Commission are considering tough new proposals to curb the pay and bonuses that banks can hand out to staff working across the European Union. The plans, which are likely to go further than anything proposed so far in the UK towards curbing the pay of financial traders and business executives would meet significant opposition from the City of London, which claims that cutting benefit packages would result in an exodus of talent to Asia and America.

As things stand however the new restrictions could not be blocked by the Government if a majority of other European countries vote in favour of them. This is why we must veto Germany's proposal that in return for the German economic powerhouse bailing out the basket case nations of southern Europe, the Eurozone must vote as a bloc on all EU policies. In other words the small nations must do what Germany tells them. Is that a rousing chorus of Deutschland, Deutschland Uber Alles we hear in the distance?

The proposal drafted by Michel Barnier, the EU Commissioner in charge of shafting Britain up the arse financial services, emerged as G20 leaders meeting in lounged around in luxury hotels stuffing themselves with the most expensive and exclusive foods, getting drunk on the most expensive wines and availing themselves of the most expensive prostitutes (or rent boys in Obama's case) while failing to produce concrete plans to tackle the eurozone's sovereign debt crisis.

Speaking in London, Mr Barnier described the situation facing Europe as "grave". In a move which will delight protesters outside St Paul's but if implemented would destroy the only area of commercial activity that earns foreign currency for Britain, he suggested it was necessary to do more to ensure bankers contributed "in a just way" to the fiscal retrenchment.

No mention of freeloading politicians and gravy train riding bureaucrats contributing to fiscal retrenchment by fucking off then. Bankers are cunts but bureaucrats and politicians are bigger cunts. It currently costs Britain 40 million a day to keep in caviare and Chateau Petrus an army of slime merchants who only marketable talent is their willingness to suck up to the rich and powerful.

"After a couple of years of calming down, [banks] have gone back to pre-crisis levels of distributing pay and bonuses which are just not justified," Barnier said, warning that, if they persisted, new regulations would be imposed. "I can't give you all the details now of what the next steps will be [but] we will be preparing the next framework so we can limit bonuses and pay further," he said.

Elsewhere Nicolas Sarkozy was reiterating calls for a Europe-wide financial transactions tax to be brought in by next year despite opposition from Britain. "It's not about penalising the banking sector," he added. "It's about asking that everyone play their role and make an effort to preserve the money available to finance the real economy."

Funny he did not mention the even greater increase in politicians and bureaucrats expenses as they fly off for another conference in an exclusive resort every couple of weeks. It's true bankers create nothing except false profits. Politicians and their lackeys don't even to that, they just massage each other's egos and steal taxpayers money to fund pointless vanity projects and secure them a "place in history."

When Mr Barnier was named EU Commissioner for the internal market and services in 2010, there was widespread suspicion in London that the French would use him to push restrictive regulation on the UK's financial centre. So if you were not already convinced that you should vote for UKIP as the only political party openly committed to getting us out of this neo Nazi superstate that is growing like a cancer in Europe, you should be now. British shareholders should deal with bosses who reward themselves for mediocrity and British voters should deal with politicians who fail to deal with businesses that are taking the piss.

Jobs Crisis Gets Worse For British Youth

The unemployment problem throughout society but particularly among the young has been discussed many times in The Daily Stirrer. In articles like The Jobless Economy we have pointed to reasons why employment has collapsed, ranging from 50 years of naive politicians and poodle-like academics framing policies to support the drive by big money to supplant human workers with machines and to export low skilled jobs to the low labour cost economies of the developing world.

Earlier in the week we learned from the latest British employment figures and yesterdays we saw repeated in statistics from the United States government that the traditional industrial areas have the highest numbers of "disengaged youth" compared to any other environments. In some conurbations where traditional industries have been hard hit by offshoring the so called NEETs (Not In Education, Employment Or Training) number as many as one in four of the population aged between 16 and 24. Governments are coming under increasing pressure from local and regional authorities to take urgent action to help this so-called lost generation or risk a "crisis" in Britain's communities, with a surge of anger and social unrest similar to this summer's riots which took the nation by storm, according to experts.

AUK - wide study out today highlights the stark and growing North-South divide between jobs and opportunities for young people. The problem is not confined to the north however.Some of the worst affected areas are around London and in other large cities in the midlands and south. With the recession exacerbating the problem can anything be done other than repeat the costly and pointless exercises of the past, paying young people to stay in full timed education or the notorious Youth Training Schemes in which the government paid employers to take on "trainees" who received little training because there was no real job for them and were jettisoned at the end of their six months contract so new trainees could be brought in. As the largest proportion of Neets are found in those cities which already have high levels, the report by the Work Foundation and the Private Equity Foundation warns of manufacturing pseudo-jobs for the purpose of massaging the statistics.

Shaks Ghosh, chief executive of the Private Equity Foundation, said: "This report has highlighted the great disparity in opportunities for young people across Great Britain. The fact that nearly a quarter of 16 to 24 year olds are disengaged from education or employment in certain cities is not only shocking but very sad. Children from deprived areas urgently need the right support to continue in school, go to college or to get a job. To neglect these Neets risks a crisis in too many of our communities.

A report by the National Centre for Social Research, commissioned by the Cabinet Office, on Wednesday highlighted "poverty and materialism" as one of the causes of the riots which swept across Britain in August. Focusing on the motivations of young people in five riot-affected areas, and two areas which did not riot, the report said: "Young people talked about the difficulty of managing on the money they received when out of work or in training. The same materialistic culture was cited as having contributed to looting by young people and older community members alike. Participants from unaffected areas in the north and Scotland suggested that the starker contrast between rich and poor in London and other cities might mean the disparity between young peoples material desires and what they could afford gave rise to greater dissatisfaction."

Welcome To New World OrderIs there really a shady group of super rich individuals, George Soros, Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Mauruice Strong and others less well known but just as powerful who are collaborating to overthrow the free nations and establish a global oligarchy, Novus Ordo Seclorum, the New World Order,. You have heard all the conspiracy theorie, now see the evidence.

War On Non JobsLocal authorities around Britain have hired an extra 180,000 workers since 1997, with the total number of town hall workers not employed in traditional front-line roles now standing at almost 750,000, according to ministers in the coalition government. The government is highlighting the figures at a time when local authorities ...
No Real Jobs In The New EconomyGordon Brown's Labour government and the failing Obama administration in the USA, feeling power slipping through their fingers, are trying to lull people into a false sense of security with claims the 'green' and the 'digital' economies will restore prosperity. This as a blatant lie, nobody needs a PhD in economics or Social Science to understand that the "new economy" of green businesses and digital commerce will destroy not create real jobs...

Minimum Wage Folly A Return To Speenhamland?The minimum wage is meant to alleviate poverty and resolve problems with unemployment but as Ian R.

The Real Unemployment FigureNew unemployment figures released yesterday show unemployment fell by 0.1% in the three months December to FebruarY.

Signs Of Ageing Halted In Mice

by Ian Thorpe

After all the gloom and despondency of recent months we just had to turn to something a little lighter.

One of the goals we set ourselves on Boggart Blog, the stupendously less serious sister blog of The Daily Stirrer was to keep readers informed on the latest developments in mouse science, that branch of biology dedicated to proving humans and mice are descended from a common ancestor and that experiments carried out on mice apply equally to humans.

Fracking And Shale Gas Extraction Blamed For Lancashire Earth Tremors


by Ian R Thorpe.
Shale gas in the bedrock under Lancashire could probably meet Britain's gas needs for 250 years. The process for extracting it, fracking, is controversial however and has been linked with minor earth tremors and seismic events. Xavier Connelly puts the risks and benefits in perspective.(Opens in a new window)

British Economy Economic Growth Of Half A Percent In Third Quarter Of 2011

The Government, bankers who want you to start borrowing and spending and mainsteam media (which is controlled by sponsors of the New World Order) will try to tell you this is good. Do not believe the crooks and liars. With inflaation running at five per cent (according to official figures, in reality nearer eight per cent) this level of growth is not growth at all, it is contraction. Inflation is still eroding the value of your savings, investments and earnings.

... and following from yesterday's report about the people of Europe being at war with the EU political establishment, we have news fron The Daily Telegraph of the latest strtie in that conflict. A Greek referendum on the austerity measures demanded by the European Central Bank in return for financial help is likely to result in a "No vote". The Greeks remember how much better life was before their country joined the Euro. Read full story

Even The BIS Is Shocked At How Broken Markets Have Become.
If the Bank of International Settlements (BIS) the bank where banks and governments do business is worried about the state of the markets, we are in bigger trouble than anyone is letting on.

Child sex abuse inquiry in crisis as victims walk away
Alleged victims of abuse involved in the historic abuse case currently being investigated by MPs and police have advised Home Secretary Theresa May, that they are ready to withdraw support from the Government's child sex inquiry. Twenty = three individuals, some of whom claim as children they suffered serious and prolonged abuse at the hands on senior Members of Parliament, Senior Civil servants and other high ranking figures in the public sector, sent Mrs May a letter claiming the inquiry is "not fit for purpose".

Obesity pill to ‘replace treadmill’ being developed by Harvard University
A magic pill which burns away excess body fat has been one of the wet dreams of mad scientists for decades. Such a pill is now being developed at Harvard University. Researchers claim it could one ‘replace the treadmill.’ (This is daft as we still need exercise to maintain a healthy heart, muscles and bones.

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. Another independent study confirms that the scientists ('A sack of rogues bought and paid for with corporate gods' to paraphrase Burns) have been lying about the health risks of eating saturated fat. It's process vegetable fat, created in laboratories by scientists and other synthesized foods that damage human health.

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. The second part, which is more revevant to the 21st Century is a rant against the superiority of the upper class 'Fabian' socialists who have hijacked the Labour movement and whose Paternal Liberalism is in almost all ways more repugnant that the uncaring attitude of the old elite.

What Will It Take to Get You to Swallow GMO and Nanotech Foods?

Are you one of these "new technology rejecters"? Apparently you will be given such a label soon if you don't want GMOs or nanoparticles in your food, just as those who ask can the 1.6% contributed by human activity of the carbon dioxide that makes up 0.025% of the atmosphere really be the sole cause of the changes in our climate which has been constantly changing for millions of years before men first stood erect.

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.

Anarchy and Statism: When We Know The Price Of Big Government Is Our Liberty Why Are So Many Prepared To Pay It. Having crossed swords with militant atheists anf fundamentalist science worshippers many times and been gobsmacked by their inability to consider that any opinion other than their own might derserve a hearing, I thought it was time to start demolishing this new quasi - religious faith that spawns so many zealots.

Another Day Another Fuckwit Scientist's Head Explodes
The Warmageddonist industry has been close to meltdown recently. Almost every week a new report by respected physicists, meteorologists or environmentalists, has cast doubt on the totally unprovable (and empirically unprovable)theory underpinning the climate science scam, that a marginal atmospheric increase increase in a trace gas, carbon dioxide (CO2) is responsible for the runaway warming trends ...

American must have been quite shocked to wake up after the Thanksgiving weekend's festivities to dind they are no longer living in what was arguably but proclaimed by many to be the world's greatest democracy, but are now ruled by the God - King Obama, who makes new laws by Imperial decree and considers those who question him criminals. The coup d'etat that killed off American democracy was carried out while the populace was diverted not only by the holiday weekend but by the carefully engineered civil unrest in freguson Missouri.

Beautiful Children With No Love In Their Eyes
With Black Friday shopping madeness out of the way for another year, here's a poem to remind us that life is not all about money and material possessions. Parents have become obsessed with creating perfect children, from expensive dentistry to playing Moart up Mum's chuff while she's preggers. But don't we owe our children a shot at happiness too? Must they be perfect little clone kids, obedient consumers not smart enough to question anything.

New Allegations - VIP paedophile ring 'abused teenage boy INSIDE Buckingham Palace and Balmoral Castle'
It looks as if the Westminster Paedophile Ring scandal, that has been covered up by the establishment with the complicity of mainstream media and the police and security services is finally about to get the attention it deserved. The Daily Stirrer and our companion Boggart Blog have covered the topic many times.

France’s President Hollande Says 'Non' To Obama’s Demand for Corporate Global Oligarchy
The embttled French President has become the first national leader to state categorically his country will not sign the Trans Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership being pushed by the USA's Obama Administration. Hollande's government is already the most unporular France has ever had and the President know to give away French sovereignty to US Corporate businesses would be political suicide.

Arrogance, Intolerance, Snobbishness and Corrupt, Self Interested Practices. It's modern science. The world sems to be waking up the the fact that while in the past scientists tended to be rather detached, slightly obsessive people not driven by material goals, the modern science academy has been very largely corrupted by political patronage and corporate money. The academic field of climate science it especially notable for this.

Westminster Paedophile Cover Up: This Is Hot Stuff
I'm on my teeny weeny notebook today because I'm out of the house all day, so this will be brief but cannot go without being recorded on Boggart Blog.
As you know we've been following the paedophile scandals from when the first stories about the depravity of a certain DJ / TV Presenter who 'did a lot for charidee though he didn't talk about it' (but made sure everyone else did. We were one of the first blogs to name ...

14 Somali Men Convicted of Raping and Pimping Underage Girls In Bristol
In the latest outrage involving the systematic abuse of underage girls by immigrant males, a court in Bristol has delivered verdicts on the sickening activities of a gang of Somali men in the city who groomed underage girls, repeatedly raped them and forced them into a life of sex slavery and prostitution. Thirteen Somali men men abused girls as young as 13 and tricked these vulnerable children into thinking they were the girlfriends of their abusers.

Climate Change: Study shows carbon dioxide dangers are OVERSTATED
That old demon Carbon Dioxide is in the news again today, not because the scaremongering science screechers have come up with a new lie to sell their 'tax-the-rich' globalist agenda but because yet another group of sensible scientists have found that carbon Dioxide levels in the atmosphere are overstated. Hardly a surprising result when you consider the global figure is derived from measurements taken on the slopes of Mauna Loa, an active volcano in Hawaii.

Dark clouds of retribution are gathering over the hubris of economic optimism
If we listen to economically illiterate idiots like Barack Obama, George Osborne, Paul Krugman and the EU leaders Jean Claude Drunkard, Gauleiter Martin Schulz and Herman Van Rumpy Pumpy we might get swept up in the belief that global economic recovery is surging ahead. The statistics they recite suggest so. Unfortunately statistics are easily manipulated. The views of people who actually run businesses tell a different story.

The Hard-Core Nazis Who Rule In Kiev Were Put There By EU and USA
"Their children will hole up in basements!" screeched Ukrainian "President" Poroshenko, the oligarch and "Chocolate King." "This is how we will win this war!" He was talking about the children of the people of East Ukraine, whose cities are being bombed from the air by the US-supported Ukrainian military. Thousands have been killed, mostly civilians: Ukraine’s war on its own people has displaced nearly a million people ...

Hiding The Decline In Temperatures Through Massive Data Tampering
We've said forever that the global warming scare was a massive fraud, cooked up by governments that needed an excuse to impose massive tax increases to plug the black hole in the global economy. They had willing allies in the science academe of course. Yep, so long as they are confident the research grants will keep flowing, scientists will always give their political and corporate paymaster the required answer ...

We have also reported on the necessity of tampering with empirical data in order to make the case for global warming, and take great please in bringing you yet more evidence of the exyent of this.

Food Fascists: GMO and Pesticide Manufacturers Play Dirty/a>
Danish farmer IbBorup Pedersen has made his living rearing hogs for decades so you can be sure he knows a thing or two about the animals. But when Pedersen became alarmed at the growing incidence of deformities and biological defects among newborn piglets, which included gaps in skulls, misshaped bones, missing legs and even a female piglet with testicles ...

Quantum Physics Meets Sociology In "Schrodinger's Class"; the Middle Class Is Either Thriving Or About To Go Extinct
While politicians tell us unemployment is down, economic growth is up, the hard pressed middle classes are struggling more than ever. so are they really doing as well as official statistics suggest, or is the widening gap between rich and poor a symptom of a return to rigid social stratification?

Media ‘gagged over bid to report MP child sex cases’ It looks as if the Westminster Paedophile Ring scandal, that has been covered up by the establishment with the complicity of mainstream media and the police and security services is finally about to get the attention it deserved. The Daily Stirrer and our companion Boggart Blog have covered the topic many times.

Arianrhod Of Silver Dawn - Ian R Thorpe
After I posted "Maid of Paradise" an erotic fantasy in the style of the eighteenth century romantic poets a friend challenged me to do a set in the same sensual style. 'Maid' drew on Middle Eastern mythology while Aruanrhod is more Celtic but both are about transcendental love and the two cultures are quite closely related.

National Security damaged if elities crimes investigated?
I’ve written before (not here for quite a log time) about how the incidence of sociopaths within a group of humans becomes greater the higher you you look in the social hierarchy. At the highest levels of political power then, obviously, we would expect to see those who take the greatest delight in inflicting misery on othrs, simply "because they can".

Wifi affects human memory
People are facing a host of illnesses ranging from brain tumors and leukemia to poor memory and concentration as they become increasingly engulfed by an “electrosmog” as Wi-Fi networks expand globally, scientists in Scandinavia have warned.
The team of experts report that electromagnetic fields (EMF) from mobiles, wireless LANs etc. can influence human blood circulation, respiration, temperature control, water balance and other bodily functions.

Retired Scotland Yard detectives back up claims that paedo MPs murdered boys at sex orgies
One of the worst aspects of the Westminster Paedophile Ring cover up was the way mainstream media caved in to political pressure and did not digigently pursue their investigations when rumours first began to circulate. OK, it must be a ...

Renewable Energy: So Useless That Even Green Loons At Google Have Given up on it
The sandal wearing, tree hugging, bearded puritans call it "renewable energy", the zealots of the Church Of Scienceology call it sustainable energy, those with smarter heads on their shoulder call it "alternative energy" because that's what it really is: an alternative to energy that actually works (eg nuclear and anything made from cabon-rich fuel from organic matter laid down in pre-history and left to brew for a few hundred million years.)

After Nuclear Phase-Out, Germany Debates Scrapping Coal After deciding to scrap nuclear power, Germany is to debate getting rid of its coal fired generating plant too, Coal is Germany's biggest energy source but also its top polluter and main threat to the unrealistic climate goals imposed by the EU. Chancellor Angela Merkel's government is split on the issue, which pits a vocal environmental movement against energy giants and coal mining regions, with only weeks until her cabinet is set to present its next climate action plan.

Westminster child abuse and murder claims 'tip of the iceberg' in scandal, Home Secretary May warns
Home Secretary Theresa May suggested during Andrew Marr Show appearance this morning more allegations and revelations are likely. She also admitted the Government is 'unlikely' to hit its net immigration target. Allegation that politicians raped and murdered young boys at paedophile orgies held at the Elm Guest House in south London are "only the tip of the iceberg" in the Westminster historic child abuse scandal, Mrs. May said.

Parliamentary Paedophiles - Establishment Cover Up Culture And The Child Abuse Scandal
The Daily Stirrer has always tried to bring you a controversial and off-message view of major news stories. We have raised the issue of a cover up culture that exists in both national and local government and throughout the public sector since we came online and before that under different guises. Allegations of a paedophile ring in Parliament are alsost as old as 'allegations' of Jimmy Savile's depravity.

Are Europe And USA Drifting Apart Over Warmonger President Obama's Aggressive Attitude To Russia?
The entire foreign policy of the Obama Administration in the USA is based on having its European alliesd give a veneer of respectability to America's warmongering, economic imperialism and blatant bullying of smaller nations. But has the rent bot President overreached himself in trying to bully Russia's Vladimir Putin?

The Left Are So Hopeless They Can't Even Sneer Properly

Obesity now costs equivalent of one third of entire NHS budget
According to one of those sensationalist headlines that lefties would ridicule if it was in The Daily Mail but will treat as a commandment handed down on a tablet of stone if it appears in The Guardian or (as it actually has been) is published in a piece of official propaganda, obesity now costs the UK more than armed violence, war and terrorism.

Walmart’s Greed: Dodging Billions in Taxes, Paying workers peanuts
Walmart Stores is America’s top-earning corporation. In 2013, its revenues were $473 billion, yet it only declared $16 billion in profits. Bizarrely Americans subsidize Walmart because its low-wage employees receive an estimated $6.2 billion annually in Food Stamps, Medicare and other anti-poverty benefits. Meanwhile Walmart has parked $21.4 billion in untaxed profits offshore and is lobbying to cut U.S. corporate tax rates.’

Genetically Modified Food Crops - Complacency Is No Way To Fight Corporate Fascism.
Adovcates of genetically modified food crops, particularly the GM versions of staple foods such as wheat, corn, soya beans and potatoes say 'the science is settled' and Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) pose not risk to human health or the environment and will feed the world's poor. Not so say independent scienctific studies, GM crops are risky, do not provide increased yields and will only result in handing control of the food supply to some very untrustworthy corporate interests.

Obama’s TTIP Trade Deal Would Be Disastrous for Europe, Says Independent Study
On November 14th, Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten (German Economic News - the German Financial Times or Wall Stret Journal) published two articles in print and on the Internet , covering the first independent study of probable short and long term impacts of the Obama administration's pet American hegemony project, the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).

Fracking Truth: Mainstream media reports only corporate lies and government propaganda.
The government, energy companies and their poodles in the science academy have been trying to sell us fracking as the cheapish, cleanish but ultimately more reliable than wind and mirrors way of meeting future energy needs. Nobody believed them of course, only a complete idiot would believe that nonsense. Unfortunately the idiots believed themselves.

Aid Organisations Using Ebola to Line Their Own Pockets
Just a couple of days ago The Dily Stirrer was slamming charities managers for using our money to line their own pockets. Now in a devastating attack on the charity sector, a Liberian official accuses charities of exploiiting ebola for gain.

Bassetlaw MP John Mann's campaign to expose Westminster child abuse
Bassetlaw MP John Mann is spearheading a campaign to investigate rumours of child abuse involving Westminster politicians. Mr Mann and two other Labour MPs, Rochdale’s Simon Danczuk and Rotherham’s Sarah Champion, say they will pressure home secretary Theresa May to act on evidence they have passed on to her. Mr Mann alleges that there has been systematic abuse of under-16s by MPs dating back decades which he believes has been covered up by successive governments.

Was CERN A False Prophet - Laugh, I Nearly Shat
Some of you may remember the stick we have taken from The Church Of Scienceology Cult member when in taking the piss out of the over educated idiots at CERN, who are looking for "The Answer To Life, The Universe and Everything," by comparing their quest for The Higgs Boson to someone looking for a needle in a haystack when ...

Mainstream Media Myths and The Power Of Belief
Years ago, an elderly, frail Japanese martial arts master once boasted a 200-0 record against his opponents. He claimed to have a unique power that allowed him to inflict serious injury on people without actually laying a finger on them. Was it Chi? Magic? None of the above. It was a total scam. But that didn't matter.

Red Cross To Be Renamed Red Swastika?


The Red Cross is getting some well deserved stick after sacking 71 year old Brian Barkley, a volunteer for over twenty years. His crime was to have an opinion that differed from the politically correct dogma espoused by the self righteous, self interested left wing troughers who line their pockets via generous expenses and salaries for running the charity.

Westminster Paedophile Investigation Turns Into A Murder Case
I watched Tory MP MURDER a boy during depraved Westminster VIP paedophile party. The astonishing claim above was made by a witness giving evidence to London Metropolitan Police detectives as they pursue their investigation of allegations dating back to the 1980s of a paedophile ring operating within the precincts of The Palace Of Westminster, the sear of the UK Government.

a href="http://www.greenteethmm.com/TTIP-democracy.shtml#141115-TTP-secret">Americans Are Waking Up To Obama’s Secret Treaty To Establish A Golbal Government System

Barack Obama is secretly negotiating the largest international trade agreement in history, and the mainstream media in the United States is almost completely ignoring it. If this treaty is adopted, it will be the most important step toward a one world economic system that we have ever seen. The name of this treaty is “the Trans-Pacific Partnership”, and the text of the treaty is so closely guarded that not even members of Congress know what is in it.

Scientists Try - And Fail - To Explain Why Global Warming Has Stopped
Try as they might, the climate science crooks and liars cannot some up with any plausible reason why the global temperature has not warmed for eighteen years. Their latest stupidity, a claim that the missing hear is hiding at the botton of the ocean would require Newtonian laws of thermodynamics to go into reverse. The pointy heads are paying the price for looking at computer models instead of reality.

Climate Change Not Caused By Humans - Ecology Professor Climate change is real, but it is not caused by human activity, Daniel Botkin, professor Emeritus in the Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Marine Biology at University of California Santa Barbara has said. The focus on the man-made aspect of global warming is detracting attention from real environmental disasters to nature’s detriment, he argued.

Luxembourg defends massive corporate tax dodging
Over the past week the whole media circus, mainsteam and broadcast, new media, bloggers, the world and his dog, was getting excited about the revelation that traditional tax haven but also founder member of the EU, Luxembourg has been facilitating wholesale corporate tax dodging and this 'business' was given the all clear by the then Prime Minister of the Grand Duchy,

The Problems of Democracy
We have written many posts under the collective label "Death Of Democracy". OK, sensational I know but newspaper barons used to say "sensation sells" because it was true and in new media it is equally true that sensatiuon attracts search traffic. Even so, democracy is in trouble, here in Britain with our broken first past the post, two party system which leaves the majority of voters disenfrachised, in Europe, where rule by inept and unstable coalitions in ...

Scotland Yard searching the Bodleian Library for Barbara Castle Dossier on alleged child sex abuse
Having failed to find the dossier on a paedophile sex abuse ring operating in parliament that was handed to then Home Secretary Leon Brittan by the late Geoffrey Dickens MP, we learn that Scotland Yard or now searching the same archive for a dossier on the same topic compiled by Barbara Castle MP also deceased.

Did Obama Hide His Background To Get Himself Elected. Six years into his Presidency, no more is known about Obama's background or early life than was known before he announced his candidacy. Where are the old classmates, roomies, girlfriends or in Obama's case boyfriends maybe, with slightly embarrassing stories that show he is human. And why did he order all records of his life to be sealed. There are many more questions of course, you may find a few answers in the embedded page below.

Climate activists Claim US Deep Freeze Is Due To Global Warming
As 44 US states brace for snow in the coming week, multiple “climate change” articles have been published recently which attempt to attribute the record cold – or any change in climate for that matter – to “global warming.” An op/ed published yesterday, for example, suggested the freezing temperatures throughout the U.S. are an “indirect result of the world getting warmer.”

Anyone threatening US petrodollar is public enemy No.1 - Gorbachev
As the world becomes more unstable and nations form themselves into geopolitical blocs, as the USA under its former rent boy President, Barack hussein Obama provokes a return to cold war conditions by trying to drag UKraine into NATO and the EU while simultaneously treading on China's toes in the far east, one former leader speaks out.

Covering Up The Cover UP
So the cover up inquiry into the lost dossier on paedophiles in parliament allegedly handed to former Home Secretary Leon Brittan by the late Geoffrey Dickens MP and subsequently lost by Home Office staff (Brittan's name figured in the list of kiddie fiddlers named by the dossier allegedly) has concluded that there is no proof the file was deliberately destroyed and therefore we must accept there was no cover up,

Petrodollar Panic? China Signs Currency Swap Deal With Qatar & Canad
As we have reported before, de-dollarization continues to spread around the world. In the past few days, China has signed bilateral currency trade agreements with Canada, which mases the USA's northern America's first offshore RMB hub. CBC analysts suggest this "could double maybe even triple the level of Canadian trade between Canada and China," impacting the need for US Dollars.

TTIP Trade Deal Will Be A Disaster For Democracy And British Economy
Analysts looking at the far reacing effects of the Trans Atlantic Trade And Investment Partnership (TTIP) have concluded that the controversial agreement negotiated between US and EU officials in conditions of such complete secrecy that even elected representatives of voters in EU member nations have not beel allowed to know what it provisions contains could become an absolute disaster for the British economy.

Wind farms paid £43million to stand idle because on windy days they produce more power than the National Grid could handle But you can't switch the coal, gas and nuclear plants off becausethe wind can drop very suddenly. John Constable, of the Renewable Energy Foundation has said too many wind farms have been built too quickly, without the infrastructure to cope with the power. Officials are also pandering to suppliers running the Government’s ‘pet technology’, he said, allowing them to charge whatever they wanted to switch off, he said.

Deja vu: Hungary asserts independence, is threatened by US and EU

In a famous episode of cold war history, when Hungary tried to assert its idependence from Russia, the Soviet Taks rolled in and crushed the budding democratic movement. Half a century later it is the so-called “democrats” from the West, the USA and EU who have been doing the bullying.

Simple Tips for Boosting Immunity Everyone Should be Doing To Improve Resistance Against Diseases Like Cancer.
While medical science, funded by research grants from Big Pharma and corporate health care pushes to find ever more costly (i.e. profitable) therapies for the diseses that threaten us, the body is its own best doctor, as our ancestors knew. All we need do in many cases is give it the right support.

New Physics Theory Proposes Time Is Disappearing From Our Universe.
I have never understood why we invest so much money in theoretical physics, which basically means blokes with pointy heads sitting around having intellectual wanks as they dream up constantly whackier theories to explain how our universe works. One idea they cling to fondly which I find crazy, is that time is somehow material than can be stretched, compressed, kicked around like a football and made to disappear.

Downed Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 News Developments Being Suppress By Mainstream Media.
Given the tarnished reputation of mainstream media after decades of its reporting only news favourable to establishment political and corporate interests, it ought not to surprise anybody that television and print news organisations have been suppressing news of developments in the quest to discover the truth about downed Malaysia Airlines Beoing 777, Flight MH17.

UN IPCC Climate Change Report Will Warn Of 'Severe, Pervasive' Effects Of Global Warming
After various leaks of draft version showed the latest IPCC Climate Change report had at last admitted that the real world behaviour of the global climate showed the mathematical modelling based scaremongering of the climate science lobby to be at odds with the real world evidence, the final published report seems to have been rewritten line by line by the Warmageddonist lobby and their political and corporate masters. Unfortunately the cat is out of the bag and nobody trusts the buggers any more.

Britain Ends Libyan Army Training after Sex Assaults
The UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) announced training programme for Libyan troops will be cut short a after reported sexual assaults allegedly involving five of the servicemen. 300 members of the north African basket case country's armed forces have been based at the Bassingbourn Barracks in Cambridgeshire, since July.

Has 'Hampstead Socialism' Lost Labour The Working Class Vote
When a traditionally left wing publication like The New Statesman turns on The Labour leader you can be sure the party is in bigger trouble than anyone involved with it is ever going to admit. This blog has been saying for years Labour is now more elitist than The Conservatives, the party of lawyers, academics and media luvvies, of crony corporatism and progressive ideologies taking precedence over ...

EU Cuts Growth Forecasts as Big Economies Falter
The EU has cut its optimistic forecasts of economic growth for all member states in 2014 and 2015 to less than 1% of GDP per annum. No surprise there to those of us who understand all the positive economic data we are fed is fake, and even if the figures meant anything at all, growth of less than one per cent when inflation is running at four to five per cent according to the most cautious estimates. In real terms the EU economy is contracting. Here's why.

Virtual ID has arrived – why you should resist taking it up
We told you some years ago when our publication appeared under a different name that the then Labour Government's plan for compulsory electronic ID cards was the step that would take us over the line from a seblance of liberal democracy into oligarchic fascism. Labour's plan was derailed by public opposition but now it has been rehashed and is presented with fluffy window dressing. A vote for Labour, Conservative Or Liberal Democrat is a vote for fascism. You have been warned.

Where Are Grandstanding FUKUS Axis Leaders As Libya Descends Into Oblivion
Remembering a time not so long ago when Libya was being held up by the French, UK and US governments as a striking example of benign and successful military 'humanitarian' intervention? The tyrant Gaddafi had been overthrown by a FUKUS Axis bombing campaign in support of a bloody revolution fought by Islamic Fundamentalists, Tribal Warlords and Common gangsters armed with American, British and French weapons paid for by western taxpayers.

Ebola outbreak caused by new strain never seen before; was it weaponized ask sceptical scientists? Since we and other blogs reported the concerns of highly regarded virologists about the strain of ebola virus involved in the outbreak currently devastating three west African nations, several more experts have gone public to say that the current strain of Ebola virus plaguing Africa and slowly spreading to other continents is potentially much more lethal than previous strains identified by virologists.

How the fall of France could accelerate the rise of UKIP Don't hold French stocks says former broker Farage as our Gallic neighbour sinks deeper into the Euroshite
The faltering French economy continues to stall under President Francois Hollande, which is boosting anti-EU sentiment across Europe particularly in Germany, where the efficiency worshipping taxpayers increasingly resent having to bail out their impecunious Eurozone partners.

Riots against police brutality in France after police put down protests against dictatorial Hollande
Another anti-police brutality protest turned violent in the French city of Rennes, with masked youths and police engaging in running street battles. The unrest follows the death of a young environmental activist earlier this week. Not long ago we were reporting riots in Spain as police were overly physical in dispersing peaceful protests against the government's economic policies.

The Spirits Of Wycoller Sceptics scoff at the old man's stories of paranormal activity in an abandoned village and its ruined manor house. But when a group of young professionals decide to spend a night within the walls of the old house, the ghost hunters become the hunted.

The Grey Lady Of Dunkenhalgh

Every old house has its ghost and Dukenhalgh Hall in Clayton Le Moors, Lancashire, about two miles from where I live, is no exception. There are many reports of The Grey Lady being seen near the house or on the nearby bridge on winter nights and there is an element of truth to the story. I hope I have fashioned it into a suitable tale for Halloween.

Students censored – An Academic Community In A Crisis Of Collectivism.
Intellectual freedom in our universities is under threat from ... intellectuals. So overbearing have the left wing screechers of bourgeois politically correct leftism now become that even the universities have surrendered to the intellectual control freakery of cultural Marxism. But if universities are now dedicated to turning out dull minded conformists, what hope is there for western society?

Tony Benn's inheritance tax dodge - another leftie hyocrite exposed
Remember the patron saint of loony lefties, Saint Anthony of Wedgewood - Benn, previously known as Viscount Stansgate? Agreeable sort of bloke, pip smokers, great speaker, utterly daft opinions as one would expect from an aristocrat who is so deluded he thinks he understands the working class?

British Democracy In Terminal Decline - Voting Is Redundant And Civil Liberties Are So Last Year
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.

You’re not feeling the economic boom are you? Here’s why
Our government keeps talking about economic recovery, so does the Obama administration in the USA and the bureaucratic dictatorship of unelected penpushers in the European Union headquarters, Brussels. but in the perception of most people, things are not getting better, in fact they are getting worse. So where's this economic 'growth' they keep talking about. Well nothing is ever what is seems to be, all the economic growth is in prostitution, drug dealing, gun running and smuggling ...

Top Scientist: This Version Of Ebola Looks Like ‘A Very Different Bug’
In another iteration of the old "The Science Is Settled" bollocks, President Obama and his senior advisers on medical science have been saying we know exactly how Ebola spreads. The case is however that there is much about this strain of the virus currently raging in West Africa that we simply do not know and the propaganda coming from the usual suspects who claim the science is settled looks very dubious.

Corporate plundering of the UK purse has to stop – Facebook pays zero tax again

Cash-strapped NHS Wales Wastes A Fortune On Politically Correct Non-Jobs

The Ebola Outbreak - Natural Disaster Or Man Made Catastrophe The Daily Stirrer has always tried to bring you a controversial and off-message view of major news stories. We were ahead of the game on Malaysia Airlines Flights MH370 and Flight MH17. We went out on a limb again over the Ebola fever outbreak in west Africa, arguing that it looked more like a biological weapons experiment gone wrong that a natural disaster. And once again as evidence emerges the odds are swinging in our favour.

UKIP Withstands Euro-Attack, Reforms EFDD Group Just Days After 'Blackmail
Just a few days after an underhanded and undemocratic move to sideline the European Parliament (EP) anti-federalist group, the eurosceptics have outflanked neo - Nazi EP boss Martin Schulz by signing a new member. Formerly independent MEP Robert Iwaszkiewicz said he had joined in protest against undemocratic EU leadership.

European Parliament: Dictatorial Martin Schulz dissolves EEFD Group of Euro-skeptics

Yesterday (17/10/2014) WikiLeaks released an updated version of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Intellectual Property Rights chapter, along with a statement accusing those involved in the secret negotiations of creating a Big Pharma fiendly deal that would will hinder access to affordable medicines globally for those earning average wages or less, remove most of the remaining safeguards against online surveillance, and erode civil liberties while benefiting corporate and other governmental interests.

Ciggy's £1.50 each. I smell an opportunity
A World Health Organisation conference on the most serious public health issue today (not ebola but smoking would you believe) is doing some very nasty things in secret. All in all their policy smells of prohibition. Oh well, that's good news for organised crime at least.

Hidden Agenda Behind the new Free Trade Deals
In this post from Wolf Street and others in this composite article, along with our many standalone posts on the so called Free Trade Agreements, TTIP (Trans Atlantic Trade And Investment Partnership) and TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership) we have stressed again and again that the seemingly benign phrase "free trade" is not used to signify the opening of markets dominated by global corporations to competition from small, efficient local businesses.

More Child Abuse Cases Like Rotherham, Rochdale To Be Revealed Says Top Police Officer
It seems inevitable that more child-abuse cases involving gangs preying on vulnerable boys and girls, like the recent cases in Rotherham and Rochdale will come to light. Simon Bailey, Chief Constable of Norfolk Police claims that the problem is far bigger than had been previously thought with up to 600,000 children having suffered some kind of sexual abuse, the National Household Survey of Adverse Childhood Experiences estimates.

Ebola, Stock Market, Nuclear War. It's all going tits up. WTF?
Woke up this morning (I know that sounds like the opening of a blues song, but bear with me), leisurely breakfast, watched the news - Osborne wittering about how well they economy was doing (which was an ominous sign), read for a while, drove Mrs T down the shops. Came in, turned on the computer.

Game of Groans: David Cameron and Ed Miliband will be torn apart as the election nears
Will Dave or Ed be Prime Minister after the 2015 general election or will a sicteenth centry witch fould up the best lain schemes of mice and men. 2015 could turn out to be the Demdike Man election, not through macick, but metaphor. The Witch of Pendle representas a communitity and culture that has been abandoned by the self righteous, politically correct concensus politics of the bourgeois establishment. Are the working and middle classes about to strike back.

The Real Significance Of The Jimmy Savile Case
Back to the Savile case, which while Anna Raccoon makes valid points about unreliability of witness evidence on events which occurred many years ago, they smug, authority worshipping people who dismiss our concerns are truly naive when saying "its just a lot of fuss about nothing, only Daily Mail readers are taken in by it," are the ones who really miss the point.

NHS Money Wasting Machine And The One Budget That Is Never Cut
After the usual empty promises made at the annual conferences of the three main political parties - all three party leaders swore that only their party can save the National Heath Service (NHS) eternally a key isue in UK politics, we decided it was time our we too a close look at why NHS finances are always in a mess. We assigned the task to our team of old gits with a vast store of business experience behind them and no fears of suffering career damage as the Politically Correct Thought Police exact retribution for the crime of being 'off message'.

The Immigration Problem
The politicians may run a mile when the topic is mentioned, the Islington Screechers and medi luvvies may cover their ears and go la-la-la-la whenever the topic comes up but there is no denying immigration is the big issue in Britain today. Labour's open doors immigration policy was a disaster, the coalition have failed to address it for fear of upsetting the politically correct thought police. Is it any wonder UKIP, the only party that will talk about immigration, is doing so well?

The Ongoing Propaganda War Behind GMOs Exposed
The United States has been paying farmers for over two decades to NOT produce food, yet biotech would have us believe that genetically modified organisms are necessary to feed the world. This is but one of the many lies they have perpetrated, all the while hiding the real truth behind GM crops. Genetically modified organisms and the chemicals which support their growth are just an outcropping of the military industrial complex and the war industry.

Emirates Airways CEO Thinks He Knows What Happened to Flight MH370
We can sometimes keep news stories running for several months by pointing out the sheer irrationality of those who scream 'conspiracy theory' and demand that we all believe the government / mainstream media version. One of the two biggest stories in 2014 was the complete disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 on a routine flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. Seven months later not a trace of the Boeing 777 aircraft or any of its passengers has been located. As the official explanations grow increasingly more ludicrous ...

MH-17 Report False Flag Exposed After Revelation Passenger Was Wearing Oxygen Mask

When exactly a month ago the supposedly objective, impartial Netherlands released its official, 34-page preliminary report of the MH-17 crash over Ukraine, presumably based on black box data, air traffic control records, and other “authentic, verified” information, there were precisely zero mentions of “oxygen“, “mask” or “oxygen mask.”

Things That Make You Boggle ... Like The Misplaced Confidence Of Academics
Why are economics academics always so sure that their predictions are correct. Given the abysmal record on economists on calling the economic trends correctly even after they have happened let alone ahead of the trend, you would think exponsents of the dismal science would be a little more cautious in proclaiming their gusses as evidence backed facts. They never seen to learn however.

European Union Euro - Nazis Block Democratic Challenge To TTIP Travesty
Yet again the news slowly leaking out of the Trans Atlantic Trade And Investment Partnershi negotiations tess us just why there is so much secrecy surrounding this trade treaty being negotiated between the EU and the USA that even our elected governments are not allowed to know what the final treaty will include. Be afraid, be very afraid.

Police to Investigate Allegations of Labour-LibDem Rochdale 'Deal' on Paedophiles
Fresh allegations have emerged regarding the systematic sexual abuse of Chil;dren in Rochdale. This time the story focuses not on the Pakistani men at the centre of the abuse gangs, but the political cover up by Labour and Liberal Democrat elected officials on Rochdale Metrtoplitan Borough Council who, it is claimed orchestrated the cover-up by Labour and Liberal Democrat Party officials in the Greater Manchester Area.

Obama and FUKUS Axis Air Strikes On ISIS Will Make Things Worse
The bombing of ISIS, the Islamic State is well under way in Iraq and Syria, and as predicted the American, British and French led campaign is already making things worse for civilians among whom the ISIS fighters are dispersed. And of course, far from making the west safer, it is stirring up more hatred against us in the Islamic world.

Bad News for the alarmists: 'Missing Heat' from Non-Existent 'Global Warming' isn't Hiding in the Ocean After All
The already mortaly wounded cause of climate taxes alarmism has bean dealt another blow in a new study published by a NASA research project carried out at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, USA.
Satellite observations and empirical measurements gathered by Argo temperature probes enabled the NASA team to calculate temperature variations and thermal expansion in ocean waters over 6000 feet deep.

Evil Labour Government Helped Private Companies Profit From NHS
If you live in Heywood and Middleton and were thinking of voting for the greedy, paedophile loving, elitists' party, Labour because you have been taken in by the lies peddled at the Labour conference that the wicked Tories plan to privatize the NHS, think again.

UK Health Watchdog: Studies Show Mobile Phones Cause Brain Tumours
Over the past last two years, following publication of metastudies like World Health Organisation's International Agency For Research On Cancer report on the effects of radio frequency electromagnetic waves, there is new evidence that mobile phones use can be dangerous to our health. A less technical summary of that is available from Cancer Research UK. Wireless phones, even those DECT systems you use with your landline so you can wander around with the handset, emit radio-frequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMFs) when in use...

Another EU Wannabe Declares War On Free Speech A very dangerous and worrying trend, which has been gathering momentum for some time, has entered a new dimension in recent weeks. Political and business leaders around the world are blatantly calling for the censorship on reporting and discussing news in terms that are 'unhelpful' to their aims and ambitions along with further restrictions on free speech.

US Centre for Disease Control Opposes Blocking Air Travel from West Africa to Stop Ebola Right of return and gender dimension more important than stopping spread of disease? Well that sounds about right for the admistration of The Rent Boy President. Always put acting in a politically correct way before common sense. How about this for a totally fickwitted attempt to deal with a crisis (or mayve a smart but totally evil way to create a crisis.

Another Big Result For The 'Conspiracy Theorists' - US CIA Corrupts Western Journalists.

Read the content of this page and you will know a lot more about what is going on.

The Crminalisation Of Dissent
There is a growing trend in what we like to think of as the free world to curtail civil rights, transfer national sovereignty from elected law making bodies to supra national bureaucracies and enact new laws restricting free speech and press freedom. Largely fictitious threats such as terrorism, Islamic fundamentalism and climate change are being used to justify this. but are the levels of risk sufficient to justify the destruction of democracy?

EU Kommisar Admits Brussels Is At War With Democracy
The German EU Commissioner Günther Oettinger, in an astonishing rant accused "bishops, non-governmental organizations and "Ami-Go-Home-Altgruppen" (whatever they are) of undemocratic agitation against the EU's free trade agreements. Oettinger was referring to the Trans Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) the undemocratic deal being negotiated in secret between the European Union and the corporate paymasters who control the US Administration.

Proof Bill Gates is Linked to Ebola as it Hits Dallas, Texas?
Ebola fever has landed in America and predictably sparked panic (see headline). The question evert=yone asks is: "How much danger are me and my family in." The questions they should be asking are: "Why does the US Government Department Of Defense hold a patent on the Ebola virus; and: Why has a team from Tulane University and the US Department of Defence biological weapons research project been experimenting on the Ebola virus for several years?

Surveillance Society Ever had that feeling you are being watched, unseen eyes are monitoring your every move, recording your every action, even knowing what you think. We live in a surveillance society but few really understand how intrusive the activiries of the watchers are. Welcome to the Panopticon. Jeremy Bentham's ideal prison has become a metaphor for the world we have created.

New Global Crisis Imminen, New Geneva Report Warns The Geneva Report refers to a “poisonous combination of high and rising global debt and slowing nominal GDP [gross domestic product], driven by both slowing real growth and falling inflation”. The total burden of world debt, private and public, has risen from 160 per cent of national income in 2001 to almost 200 per cent after the crisis struck in 2009 and 215 per cent in 2013. “Contrary to widely held beliefs, the world has not yet begun to delever and the global debt to GDP ratio is still growing, breaking new highs,” the report said.

Farage Reckless Facing Rabid Left Wing Fanatics
Following the defection to UKIP of Conservative MP Mark Reckless, who yesterday shocked the media and political establishment (everyone else knew it was on the cards.) by announcing his switch from con to Kipper from the podium at the closing session of UKIP's conference, the Kippers latest recruit and his new leader yesterday faced angry but ineffectual protests

Vaclav Klaus, the free world's last honest politician: the West’s lies about Russia are monstrous.
There are few people in politics who will say in public the things that really think, thanks to the hypersensitivity of the American political establishment and their enthusiasm for bombing the crap out of anyone who upsets members of their anointed minorities. Its refreshing then to learn of comments made by veteran Czech Republic leader, putting the boot into the cowardly mealy mouthed sum who pass for conservative and libertarian politicians in the English Speaking countries.

Why Do Government Information Technology Projects always Screw Up? Because Everything Governmrent Touches Becomes Political
While scientists burble excitedly about the internet of things, computer-brain interfaces that will enable the government to control us from data centres, creating human / computers hybrids and other science fantasy rubbish as if any of it stands a chance of becoming reality, government Information Technology managers, with almost unlimited resources at their disposal, can't even manage to cobble together a simple database and search routine. The failure of the e borders project is the latest in a long line of screw ups.

Ukip takes on free market corporatists: Britain's immigration debate gets interesting
Immigration was the subject of the big debate at UKIP's conference in doncaster today. With the Rotherham paedophile scandal which involved Muslim men in the immigrant community abusing young white girls as open sore in South Yorkshire politics at the moment the topic was long overdue for serious debate. One of the reasons the Rotherham scandal happened was the politically correct left scremed racism whenever issue was raised. Immigrants are not above the law.

The Third Gulf War Has Started - Should Britain Get Involved
For the third time in twenty five years a British Prime ~Minister has led the nation into a war in Iraq. It's understandable that Iraquis might be a bit pissed off with us. This time the threat is not a brutal dictator like Saddam hussein or Muammar Gadaffi, the Libyan leader we helped depose, but Islamic State, a concept, an idea, but also a rabble of bloodthirsty maniacs funded by European and American money, aremed with European and American weapons and trained by European and American 'military advisers.

War In Iraq? Lard Bombs Away (SATIRE)
As usual Boggart Blog is totally against Britain becoming embroiled in another sectarian conflict in the middle east (the theme tune of which will be I Hate You Babe by Sunni and Shia.) But rather than send our clapped out, thirty year old warplanes to fire rockets and heavy calibre cannons and drop bombs on the IS, bearing in mind these guys are all fundamentalist Muslims we have a better idea. We can beat the Islamic State without shedding HUMAN blood.

Derbyshire Chief Constable Claims He Was Forbidden To Arrest Former Labour Minister Or Search His Home">South Yorkshire Police Commissioner Shaun Wright Finally Resigns Over Rotherham Child Abuse Scandal
Police chiefs blocked a paedophile probe into a top politician 25 years ago, one of the country’s most senior officers said yesterday.

Disaster Dave's Latest Screw Up On The International Stage
Tomorrow (26 September, 2014) the UK Parliament will meet to vote on whether Britain should support Prime Minister David Cameron and US President and Warmonger - in - Chief Barack Hussein Obama in launching yet another war in the middle east, this time against the forces of the Islamic Caliphate, a fundamentalist organisation set up by groups funded armed and trained by the USA and its allies in their quest to overthrow the regime of Bashar Al Assad in Syria.

War In Iraq: Confused? You Will Be
I'm always a bit wary about referring to The Daily Mail because mere mention of that rather sensationalist but immensely popular newspaper (compare its circulation figures with those of The Guardian or The Independent) is likely to attract a Two Minutes Hate session from Britain's biggest fascist movement,

Love Like Chains (poem)
There are needy lovers and there are controlling lovers (the lovers in my case have always been female but I know men fall into these categories too). They often seem to be modelled from the same clay. Having always been self contained person who liked to stand apart from the crowd I have never did very well in love affairs with either type. This poem is not adressed to a specific person but an amalgam.

Miliband Promises Same Old Shite - Not A Word About Action Against Paedophile Sex Gangs
Labour leader Ed Miliband's keynote speech at the Labour Party conference woyuld have to be the best speech of his life if he hoped to be Prime Minister after next years election, the consensus of opinon said. Ed's friends and opponents awaited the speech with very different hopes and expectations. in the end as Ed dodged the bg issues, the economy and debt, law and order, immigration and Europe, it was probably his enemies who were happier.

In Praise Of Sluts - Tits Out For The Boys Miley
In the last 24 hours both Marianne Faithfull and Jacqueline Bisset have criticised today's young women for dressing provocatively, the teasers for a story in today's news said.
Marrianne Faithfull, no slouch in the sluttiness stakes herself back in the 1960s but to a teenage male all the more appealing for that (I still get a little tingle when I look at a Mars Bar), told ITV News that Miley Cyrus, Rihanna and other good looking young pop tarts are, quite simply, sluts. She gave her reasoning thus:

'There is Only One Planet': The Bemusing Claims of London's Climate Warriors
Apparently blissfully unaware of their hypocrisy, marchers have left placards emblazoned with complaints about the government and environmental issues strewn around on the pavement. The thousands of left-wing activists who descended shouting and stomping through London’s streets no doubt moved on to bars, restaurants or their homes to smugly congratulate themselves on having done their bit for Mother Nature, unsurprisingly not only expecting other people to pay for everything they demand,

A Bunch Of Self Obsessed Air Heads Only Interested In Publicity
The headline sums up some of the speakers or yesterday's climate change protest in London. But we know scientists are vacuous wannabe celebrities. The surprising thing was the showbiz and media luvvies showed themselves even more stupid and out of touch with reality. Take Emma Thompson. A fine actress but we should remember her job is pretending to be somebody else. and having spent most of her life pretending to be somebody else, when ...

Nationalism the new target for left wing screechers
The screechers have a new target for their hate, Nationalism. OMFG, I am sick of seeing on Facebook and other Sheeple sites posts from the army of bandwagon followers condemning nationalism. Hate attacks on Andy Murray because he voted Yes for Scottish Independence were deplorable, the bloke is entitled to his opinion FFS. The lefties hater did not stop there however, attacks on his mother are just disgusting (but entirely typical of the Labour voting, free speech hating, all-things-British loathing, bourgeois left scum.)

Rotherham Childcare Chief Quits Over Mass Sex Abuse Scandal

After weeks of mounting pressure and in the wake of resignations by council political leaders and senior exectutives and also of the recently elected Police Crime Commissioner for the scandal hit town, Joyce Thacker the head of children's services at Rotherham council has finally quit.

GCHQ employs more than 100 dyslexic spies. So what?
A lot of people in comment threads seemed eager to get their knickers in a twist this morning about a story headlined: GCHQ employs more than 100 dyslexic and dyspraxic spies. The story tells how the government snoopers intelligence agency down in Cheltenham uses dyslexics' ability to analyse complex information in a 'dispassionate, logical and analytical' in the fight against terror.

Obama administration ‘blocking' information from the press
Uncovering information that should be available to the public has become increasingly difficult under the presidency of Barack Obama, an Associated Press bureau chief says. In some cases, it surpasses the secrecy of the George W. Bush administration. The White House's penchant for secrecy does not just apply to the federal government, according to AP's Washington bureau chief, Sally Buzbee.

An Interesting Perspective From Across The Pond On The Scottish Referendum Result
The almost inevitable accusations of fraud and vote rigging are beginning to emerge in the wake of the Scottish independence referendum. Surprisingly the likely culprit most fingers are pointing at is not the SNP, leaders of the YES campaign or the Westminster government which wanted to avoid the embarrassment of a no, but the Euronazis in Brussels whose plans for a single European nation would have suffered from a YES vote.

Submerged forests' drowned by ancient climate change revealed by 2014 storms.

You've all heard from members of the Church Of Scienceology Cult about how there was total consensus (despite a lack of empirical evidence) that the planet is warming so rabidly there are now no ice caps at either the North or South Poles, that the last polar bear perished when someone ate its Fox's Glacier Mint and that there are now ...
