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 everybody’s 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 UK’s 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, don’t 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 doesn’t 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 Parkinson’s 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 Britain’s 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 EU’s 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 Britain’s biggest exam boards, has so little content that the organisation's chief examiner cannot believe it was approved by the Government’s 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 firm’s tests that “you don’t 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 board’s coursework. “So weak kids, you can get them through on anything really.” Jennifer Smith, Edexcel’s 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 year’s exam results had been devalued, David Cameron’s official spokesman added: “I don’t think that’s the right conclusion to draw but there’s clearly a problem and we need to address that.”

Amid growing concern over the standard of next year’s 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 report’s 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 week’s 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 Paterson’s comments, in an interview with The Spectator, are the most serious Conservative challenge yet to David Cameron’s 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 UK’s 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, Europe’s Economic and Monetary Affairs Commissioner, made his startling prediction of the euro’s 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 we’d all better hope that somewhere in the basement of the Treasury Department and the Federal Reserve they’re 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 world’s 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 aren’t 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 Europe’s 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 tutor’s 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.

America’s 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 Wednesday’s 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 can’t – 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 can’t lose the skills and talent of our young people, right when we need them most. We can’t 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.

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.

“There’s 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. “It’s not entirely clear how it’s going to fail, but it’s 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.

"The time for individual nations [in Europee having its own tax, employment and social policies if definitely over. We must finally bury the erroneous ideas of nations having sovereignty over foreign and defence policies. National sovereignty will soon prove itself to be a product of the imagination." — Gerhard Schröder, 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." — José 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. " — Jean-Luc Dehaene, Former Belgian Prime Minister and Vice-President of the EU Convention, Irish Times, 2nd June 2004

'The Europe of Maastricht (the treaty that paved the way for political and financial integration) could only have been created in the absence of democracy' - Claude Cheysson French Foreign Secretary.

"Today, I will give this cast-iron guarantee: If I become Prime Minister, a Conservative government will hold a referendum on any EU treaty that emerges from these negotiations." — David Cameron MP, The Sun, 26th September

2007 "I do not believe for a single second that the British people actually want a referendum..." David Cameron – October 2011

‘As long as I’m Prime Minister Britain will never join the euro’ – David Cameron at the Conservative Party conference October 2011

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.

Oops, we slipped up yesterday, everyone thought someone else was doing something. Oh well, we never said The Daily Stirrer was anything but an amateur hour publication.

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 Bank’s 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 Jackson’s 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, José 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 Europe’s 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 Germany’s 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 they’re 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 people’s material desires and what they could afford gave rise to greater dissatisfaction."

Government Still Creating Non JobsAs Coalition ministers strive to find ways of cutting Britain's crippling public sector deficit, Labour councils are still creating 'non - jobs', positions crreated to appease politically correct prejudices, service the vanity of executives and elected officials and buy votes from minoroties.

The Real Story Behind Obama's Job CreationLast week's announcement by the U.S. labour department that the American economy had created 216,000 jobs in March was seized on as cause for celebrations by sychophantic Obamessiah cultists desperate for something to praise "The greatest human being who ever lived" for.

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.

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

The Mad Scientists Mania For Genetically Modifying Everything
Genetically Modified (GM) organisms? The science is setttled right, the only way to feed the world's growing population is to accept GM foods and hand control of the human food chain to some of the nastiest, most fascistic corporate busineses on earth, right? Well fortunately it is not as clear cut as that, independent research shows GM crops do not give increased yields and do pose very significant risks for humans, wildlife and the environment.

Why Do Those On The Political Left Assume They Have A Monopoly On Goodness And Truth
Political philosophy: As politics and society become more binary and polarise so that according to a self sppoined elite there are only two possible points of view on any issue, public debate is stifled and the polarised left and right end up attacking the other's right to free speech. It has nothing to do with liberal democracy

Measles Outbreak Traced to Fully Vaccinated Patient for First Time
Government and Corporate propaganda suggests there is no reason why anyone should have doubts about vaccines, they are 100% effective and can never cause harm. Propaganda is however the tools authoritarianism uses when the truth is unpalatable. Read below of how real world evidence exposes more big Pharma ciminality and dishonesty about vaccines

Washington Is Humanity’s Worst Enemy I still come across the occasional American nut job (as many of them are left wing as right wing) who tell me the USA is a beacon of democracy, justice and liberty. Evan as the Obama administration buts its push towards Stalinism into overdrive by advancing the descpicable United Nations Agenda 21 which will abolish private proptery amd make us all slaves to government. Obama famously promised his administration would be a ...

Neuroscientist Sounds Alarm About Proliferation Of Wireless Electronic Technology
We have said in the past science is out of control, politicians and corporate leaders hungry for power and profit are willing to believe the most outrageous claims of academics and scientists and the concerns of ordinary people are swept aside. Fortunately there are some responsible scientists out there who are not afraid to shot at the sacred cows.

Is Biocentrism The Theory Of Everything And Does It Prove There Is Life After death - Weird science
Newtonian materialism and determinism, the orthodox creed of The Church of Scientism, is obviously as wrong scientifically as the idea that God created the universe in seven days arounf 6,000 years ago. While religious metaphor is perfectly acceptable to me, when I question the dogma of science, the science worshippers shout heretic and start a medieval witch hunt. Yet thee are many scientifically and logically sound ideas that offer better answers than determinism.

Climate Controled Communities - Science Leading The Rush To Fascism.
Living in climate controlled cities, communities sheltered under giant plexiglas domes from hostile nature has been an idea loved by sci - fi writers for many years. And as modern scientists seem to obtain their scientific education from Star Trek and The Matrix, is it any wonder they are talking about making the idea reality?

Swine Flu Scam Exposed: Useless Drugs And Vaccines - Lying Science Whores
The propaganda aimed at convincing us medical science can provide a vaccine to immunise us against death is not about the greatest good of the greatest number, it is about corporate profit and political power. Five years after the even the lies and fraud that created the swine flu 'pandemic' of 2009 are exposed. It was just a scam to sell a drug the scientists and manufacturers knew was no good.

Vaccine Tuth: Corporate Profits Are More Important Than Public Health. Yet more information exposing the truth about the vaccine and mass medication industry, because that is what medicine has become, an industry, a cash cow for corporate fascists. And vaccines are one of the biggest profit drivers ...

Is Technology Creating Physical and Psychological Hazards In The Digital Age?
Scientific research used to be the area of work that trailblazers, those with an unquenchable desire for new experience and a hyperactive sense of adventure wanted to be involved in. Now those who label themselves 'scientists' seem to have become the high priests of an ultra - conservative religion, determined at all costs to block progess that may lead to understanding that the dogmas of the past are just wrong

Western intelligence and the mysterious MH370 ping - a conspiracy of intelligence agencies
The mystery of Malaysian Airlines flight 370 deepens as does the ocean in which the authories are pretending to search for the disappeared Boeing 777. The latest reports coming out of the international search effort suggest however that having become a military intelligence operation rather than a civilian aviation matter, the whole thing is descending into farce

The Mummers: The Controlling system And The Illusion Of Freedom
We live in a world of deception, where truth is an ephemeral thing, slippery as an eel and shadowy as a spectre. What we are expercted to perceive as reality is just spin and misinformation designed to ensure the elite maintain their control. There's eff all you can do just get on with your life, say the shills for big government and authoritarianism. But are we really nothing more than slaves of the system?

Primary School Teacher Forced Out For Teaching It's OK To Be Gay
The thought police are well and truly embedded in the education system, the legal system, government and public services, everywhere you look in fact. Their dovtrines of multiculturalism and diversity and they sacred cows of human rights ad equality are suppressing freedom of speech and thought. But what do the politically correct thought police do when two of their sacred cows come into conflict ...

Albert Einstein Talks With Jon Rappoport About Newtonian Materialism and Determinism
Another page from Greenteeth Labyrinth with shines the light of reason onto the scientific hocus pocus and magical thinking that presents fairy tales as science and asks us to believe things that are obviously not true. To read or listen to some of the convoluted logic used to head off critical analysis of the fallactious belief of science you'd think scientists were priests of some nutty religion. Scienceology?

US-EU Trans-Atlantic Free Trade Agreement (TAFTA) Will Have Devastating Social and Environmental Consequences
Can a free trade treaty really be called that when the 'free' is refers to is freeing nasty corporations like Monsanto, Dow Chemical, BP, Exxon, the Drugs and mudicine cartel or the big bankers from having to compley with laws enacted by electrd governments that the corporate interests don't like. Of course not. Read below to learn how globalisation became a polite word for fascism.

Some Experiments In Quantum Physics To Make You Doubt Your Sanity
Nothing is ever what is seems to be. I would have thought most people as they go through life would learn this, but no; I am constantly surprised by the number of seemingly intelligent people who would never dream of questioning versions of events that really are little more than propaganda for those whose interests are served by preserving the status quo. Most science is wrong, far too much of it relies on statistics, a lot more is nothing but mathematical speculation. And yet we are told

What Have We Told You About Mad Scientists And The God Complex
Those people of accuse me of being "anti-science" need to read this. I am not anti - science (science means knowledge so it is not possible to be anti - science. What I am anti is lunacy, giving psychopaths power and wasting taxpayers money - and if that means some twat kills himself because what I write makes him realise he will never walk on Mars or explore distant galaxies, well so what? The world needs less arseholes.

Ofsted: all parents should get a ‘checklist’ telling them how to raise their children
This is surely the most fuckwitted idea yet dreamed up by the fuckwits who populate our universities, living the high life on research grants funded by out money while they dream up fuckwitted social engineering projects to fuck up our dysfuctional civilisation even more. Unless of course there is a hidden agenda ...

Manufacturing Madness: The Pseudoscience of Modern Psychiatry
Mental Illness. If we have not reached it already, we are close to the point at which any minor eccentricity or expression of individuality can be diagnosed as a mental health problem for which some kind of therapy (usually involving the toxic products peddled by Big pharma) is necessary. But is this any thing more that a sleazy scam to make us all patients for life?

Foreign Exchange Market Rigging: Another Conspiracy Theory Exposed As Truth
The people who findly imagine themselves to be realists, rationalists and scientific thinkers have been yelling conspiracy theory for a long time now at those of us with the nous to work out what's really going on. well evidence is overrated because by the time it has come together the scam has been done and the perps (Goldman Sachs and the usual suspects) are away with the money.

Kerry stops Short Of Saying Climate Science Scepticism Is a Crime But ...
Everyone thought the global warming scam had receded into the background but Our New Unhappy Lords can't afford to give up on the carbon taxes they hoped for so easily. Though the evidence offered by the latest IPCC report offers only likewarm support for the idea that climate change will wipe out life on earth, the media hype has gone into full fear and panic mode

Intrusive Surveillance Technology, Internet control freaks and The Orwell-Huxley-Dick Dystiopianometer
Are privacy campaigners right to be worried about intrustive internet technology and the massive databases that log our behaviour and parse the data for patters that enable us to be targeted for advertising? Should we bee worried by surveillance or are those that raise doubts just scaremongering? The Orwell-huxley-Dick dystopianometer is rising.

What Is Democracy? Alf Garnett and Vladimir Putin Understand It
People talk about democracy and rule of law, but do they really understand what is involved in running a democratic nation like Britain or Russia with their large populations

Heading For The Last Roundup? GM crops a weapon of mass destruction
How did the title of a sentimental cowboy song take on such a sinister undertone in this Brave New World of The Scientific Dictatorship. Well when you remember Roundup is the brand of a herbicide based on the highly potent toxing gyphosate and genetic engineering has turned the food we eat into a delivery system for putting this poison into our bodies, you realise we could all be headinf for the last Roundup sooner than we would like

HAARP: Have Scientists, In Their Quest For World Domination, Opened Pandora's Box Of Troubles
Mention HAARP and you will get the Church of Scientism cultists yelling "Conspiracy Theorist" like the religious fanatics that they are. but HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) is no conspiracy theory, it is a well documented and officially acknowledged research project. We know what is can be used for (examined here in part 1 of a series) but what IS it being used for and what are the possible consequences. That will be looked at later ...

New World Order annexation of Ukraine.
Is it true that the uprising in Ukraine was anything but the spontaneous rebellion of a disenchanted population? Was it is fact just another regime change operation orchestrated by the FUKUS axis on behalf of the corporate and financial cartel that has hijacked western democracy.

Giant Whitewash Slick Sighted In Indian Ocean
The Malaysian Airlines missing Boeing 777 mystery is over, the mouthpieces of the New World Orderr declare. Though no wreckage has been found and technological data points to a very different conclusion, the powers that be have decided we must all accept the boeing 777 few way beyond its range, into a remote area of the Indian Ocean well over a thousand miles from land where the pilot ditched it. and we can all stop asking difficult question or else - see!

So Who Is Anti - science? Those Who Question Climate Change Or Those Who Would Abolish Free Speech
It was looking as if the global warming scare was dead, then that Nazi shit Barack Obama, seeing his dream of being President Of The World slipping away, gave his science whores enough money to enable them to kick some life back into it. Now the "science" lobby, unable to put together an convincing argument against their challengers are demanding the abolition of free speech.

Neuroscience Is Wrong. Human consciousness Did Not Spontaneously Occur Because Our Brains Got Big
One of the most obviously bogus of the new pseudo science disciplines in neuroscience. Not neurology, that is study of the brain - neuroscience is the study and subjective interpreatation of statistics obrained from electronically scanning the brain. So can these scientists really read your thoughts as they claim. Wel in a word, NO and anyone who tells you otherwise is having a laugh.

Save The African Clitoris
British Courts have started prosecuting the crime of Female Genital Mutilation, the barbaric practice popular in some African and middle eastern cultures of removing a woman's clitoris and labia at puberty. Meanwhile in Burkina Faso, western poverty millionaires have typically turned this barbaric practice into a monry making opportunity

One In Four Americans Don't Know The Earth Circles The Sun - Does It Matter?
When results of a survey suggested one in four American's does not know the earth orbits the sub, they Church of scientism Cult went into a frenzy about religion and ignorance. but does it really matter that much? OK, it's science but all the same it has little relevance to our daily lives. We examine the bigoted attitudes of the science fan club and their narrow mindedness.

Big Bang, The Cosmos, The Meaning Of Life And You
Scientists are claiming another breakthrough in our understanding of the uiverse. As usual they have found nothing, when science wanders into the territory of philosophy what is usually discovered (apart from being exactly whast the research project hoped to discover, is just a different subjective interpreatation of data to all the previous ones.

Venezuela Deals Blow to Banksters, Global Fascists and New World Order.
A few weeks ago we reported that a US sponsored campaign of civil unrest aimed at destabilising Venezuela was underr way as the latest target for US / New World Order colonisation was engulfed by riots. Unfortunately for the USA's Obama Administration and their globalist banker paymaters, Venezueal is proving just as tough a nut to crack as Ukraine, Syria, Egypt and Afghanistan.

The days go by and there is still not sign of the mission Boeing 777 aircraft, Malaysia Airlines flight 370 which went disappeared without trace, along with all 200 plus passengers and the crew on a commercial flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing ten days ago. Mainstream news is offering only diversions and misdirections, but the Daily Stirrer is looking at the serious possibilities

Putin Could Win World War Three Without Firing A Shot.
Leaders of the USA and EU continue on their lunatic course of provoking confrontation with Russia, forgetting Russia's most powerful ally is China and with Iran onside and India, Brazil, Pakistan, most African nations and the oil producers of the middle east not having many reasons to love the west, it looks as if Obama, Cameron and Co. may have misread the situation ...

Ukraine Crisis: Putin Signs Treaty Making Crimea Part Of Russia - EU / US alliance Says Boo!

Modern Maths Teaching Is Making Children Mentally Ill
It is a well established fact that people who are good at mathematics are insane so why are we making such a big deal of abstract maths in proressive education when what most people will need to earn a living is a good command of basic arithmetic - which modern education is failing to give them.

The Crimea Referendum: tragedy or farce?
The world teeters on the edge of war as Obama continues to provoke Putin and the Russian leader coninues to flick V signs at Washington. Will Obama do something following the latest insult after he demanded that Russia drop it's support for a referendum in Crimea on independence from Ukraine was contemptuously ignored?

Agenda 21: Wyoming welder faces $75,000 a day in EPA fines for building pond on his property
Agenda 21 may not have gained much traction here in Europe yet but it is forging ahead with its agenda of seizing control of private property and abolishing individual freedom in the USA where the fascist excesses of The Emperor Obama and his tyrannical administration are at war with the people. Think I'm exaggerating? Fools...

As Crisis Deepens Ukraine Population Show They Still Have a Sense Of Humour
The US administration seem to be set on provoking Russia into war over Ukraine. It is probably the most idiotic episode in the career of the idiotic American rent Boy President Barack Hussein Obama. With China and Iran siding with Russia and Idia leaning in their direction while the European Union cannot push too hard while Russia controls the gas pipelines, the west can't win.

Transatlantic Trade And Investment Partnership Attacks Democracy
The fascist global government lobby is up to iut's tricks again, not content with trying to force the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) on Asian nations and only succeeding in driving those nations closer politically and economically to Russia and China, the neo Nazi New World Order is not trying the same trick to rob European nations of their sovereign powers and put the banking / corporate cartel above all national interests.

Google's Brave New World Of Artificial Intelligence - And The Destruction Humanity
Almost every day we hear scientists burbling about artificial intelligence and how very soon machines will be smarter than humans. As scientists are nowhere near as smart as humans its hard to see how science can build something smarter. The problem is of course we don't understand what contsitutes intelligence - those who think academic qualifications are the only indicator are retards. So where will this madness to replace us with machines end?

Missing Malaysian Aircraft: Crash Or Cover Up?
How can a modern aircraft equipped with sophisticated (and bomb proof) tracking and security technology which is designed to stay intact through a crash or in flight explosion and keep tramsmitting its location for up to 30 days after being separated from the aircraft, just vanish. Yet that is exactly what we are being asked to believe happened to a Malasia Airlines Boeing 777 en route to China. The deeper we delve, the murkier the story gets ... read on below

There Is A Global Conspiracy Says World Bank Insider
We have reported on many situations that make it obvious our political leaders are collaborating with bankers and global corporations towards, it appears, a global government. Is this conspiracy in the inteerests of we the punters? You can bet your life it isn't. So far however it has been hard to convince indoctrinated Marxists and people who believe singing Kumbaya will make things right, that big government is not our friend but our enemy.

Your Lupins Or Your Life! EU Bureaucrats To Ban Your Favourite Flowers
With a video clip of the Monty Python sketch the title refers to, this Boggart blog satire takes a wey look at new powers being sought by EU bureaucrats that will enable them to order non native garden plants and shrubs to be dug up and destroyed even though these species have been part of European gardens for centuries. Could there be a more sinister motive behind the move? We think so.

Paedo Loving Comrade Mr. Harperson In Trouble Again
There seems to be no end to Labour's paedophile link woes. Allegations continue to surface about the three senior MPs, Patricia Hewitt, Harriet Harman and Jack Dromey who while working for the national Council for Civil Liberties supported an equal rights for paedophiles group which wanted the age of sexual concent lowered to FOUR. Meanwhile new revelations have now implicated a senior judge. The corrupt elitists have no morals.

Former US Presidential nomination runner Dennis Kucinich says US instigated Ukraine Crisis
We told you so - and now a US politician who once ran for the democratic nomination in the Presidential election has confirmed it, the USA and Europe were behind the revolution in Ukraine exactly as they have been in Egypt, Libya, Syria, Yemen, not to mention the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and as they were when The Balkans expoloded into war in the 1990s

E Bomb? Putin Has Obama Over A Fracking Barrel Again On Economic Sanctions.
While western media continue to provide immaculate body service to Barack Obama by swallowing all his shit, the US energy boom is falling short of expectations and Putin is still runnung rings round The Rent Boy President

The Science Fraud: Many Scientific Research Papers Are Pure Gobbledegook
The war between humanities and science goes on, both in academic faculties and internet comment threads. But in an environment that is increasingly politicised and influenced by corporate profit motives rather than the pure and unsullied pursuit of knowledge, can we trust either side? This article suggests not.


HAARP: Scientists Open Pandora's Box With Experiments In Changing The Climate
What do you think of the freak weather this year? Coincidence, climate change, solar activity or something more sinister. If you have heard the term HAARP chances are you're pretty sceptical about the official line. HAARP - the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program is a research programme that experiments with changing the earh's upper atmosphere. you don't have to understand much science to realise it proves that as John Lennon said the world is run by insane people.

Geoengineering exposed
Most of the discussion about geoengineering has centred on chemtrails, those persistent vapour trails left by jet aircraft which seem to hand around much longer and behave very differently to the condensation trails we have been seeing since jet aircraft became a regular features of the skies above us

Homosexuality: As a liberal society we have a duty to tolderate, not celebrate.
Even though the government has accepted a very limited definition of same sex marriage the gay lobby keeps raving on about the greates non issue of all time. But in a free society should we be subjected to bullying if we do not show enough enthusiasm for homosexual and lesbian relationships? When did indifference become a hate crime?

World On The Brink - USA And Russia Square Up In Ukraine
It looks like this might be the big one. With all America's plans to destabilise non supine nations in ruins as phase 2, the intstallation of a puppet government proved impossible, Obama who has already been bested by Putin several times cannot back down again. And this time the Russians have forced the crisis in their own backyard where the USA cannot possibly win. Interesting

Climate change and the unsinkable Pacific Islands
Idiots like Cameron and Obama are still swallowing the bullshit of climate science scammers by the shovelful and saying a slight increase in the average global temperature will pose an existential threat to humanity. but one by one the threats are being exposed as hype by research grant phishing scientists, just as the science of mathematical models is being shown to rely on fraudulent data.

Internet Trolls - Are They Contractors Paid To Suppress Open Discussion Of Sensitive Subjects?.
Everyone who likes to follow online debates on sensitive or controversial topics will have encountered trolls. but are these people really just angry and obsessive, excesssively self righteous individuals. Or is there anyting in the claims that they are employed by contractors to suppress open discussion and discredit points of view which do not support government or corporate interests.

Ukraine: Russia launches 'armed invasion' as Obama warns Moscow of 'costs' of intervention
The FUKUS axis - well mainly the US, France and the UK are just sockpuppets as any fule kno - look to have screwed up again. With proof having emerged that the USA and the EU are unrest in Ukraine, Russia has taken steps to safeguard eyjnic Russians in the country. Obama warned of 'consequences' if Russia intervened - Russia sent more troops

Facebook boss Zukerberg Wants To Own The Internet
Facebook's latest acquisition Whatsapp cost $19bn, that's $40 per user. Whatsapp charge their users $1 per year. That means it will take Facebook 40 years to recover their outlay. And people are buying shares in this company? Insane.

Pollution Could Save Us From Climate Change Disaster
As politicians become ever more hysterical and scientists become ever more crazy about climate change because less and less people believe them while more and more climate scaremongering is exposed as junk science or plain and simple fraud, if it really is necessary or desirable to cool the earth's atmosphere, then according to some chinese scientists, the answer is staring us in the face.

So You Think Control Of Media Is A Conspiracy Theory
A story I found on Zero Hedge concerns a factual article posted on the Financial Times website which was quickly removed and never appeared in print. Zero Hedge reproduce the article in full so I was able to verify its content. "Two days ago the FT released a clear, informative and fact-based article, titled simply enough "Gold price rigging fears put investors on alert" in which ..."

Geo - Engineering: The Science Isn't Settled

In another case of scientific dictatorship the American Government and the corporate cartel have invoked a Big Science scam to make $$$billions from geo engineering schemes 'to save the planet from climate change disaster'. The science is settled they tell us. Unfortunately once again it isn't. Geoengineering could have ‘catastrophic consequences’: Schemes to control climate change could backfire, a large group of concerned and influential scientists have warned.

Labour, The Party Of The Rich, Well - Connected, Elitist, Paedophile People
Labours paedophile agony goes on. Put on the reack by The Daily Mail over the involvement of three senior MPs with paedophile equal rights group PIE, the response was to deny the allegations. Unfortunately evert time harriet Harman, Jack Dromey or Patricia Hewitt deny something, The Mail produce documents to suppport their story.

Can Washington Change Three regimes At Once The FUKUS axis - let's be honest, the Obama Administration in the USA, France and the UK are just sockpuppets, may have bitten off more than they can chew in trying to deliveer regime change in three nations at one to satisfy their paymasters the global bankers. The log jam has developed because of the failure to remove assad in Syria and the resolute support of Russia, China and Iran for their ally.

Transhumanism - What The Elite And Their Science Whores Have Planned For You
Transhumanism, the creation of - or turning us into - part human, part machine cyborgs is generating a lot of discussion and a lot of spontaneous ejaculations in the scientific community as they contemplate having their brains replaced by a computer. There are no limits on the ambitions of scientists fantasies, they even envisage creating robots that can interbreed with us, but how much is realistic?
