Eurocrats Dictated That The Crisis Was Over - Real World Dwellers Ignored Them
On Saturday, the European President, Herman Van Rompuy wrote an unintentionally hilarious piece in The Guardian in which he chided the markets for not doing what they were told. Astonishingly, since our summit the cost of borrowing has increased again for a number of euro area countries. Those pesky bond traders! Werent they listening? Eurocrats have

After a failed western intrvention Gadaffi is stronger than ever.
The fact Gaddafi has survived the rebellions and Nato bombing undermines the simplistic view of a hated tyrant clinging on. The war on Libya has not gone well.

American Debt Talks Collapse
The Daily Stirrer is not a racist website but neither do we practice reverse racism, trying to show we are not racist by elevating other races above our own. Therefore we can be objective. We have always said Barack Obama was an idiot, and economic illiterate and a political nincompoop. And we have often bee accused of taking these positions simply because we cannot stand the thought of a black man being President of the USA. (We're British. WTF dofference does the US Presdents colour make to us?)
Well now as the dire economic straits Obama's lonytoons economics has steered the USA into become apparent there is only one thing we can say. WE TOLD YOU SO.

The Eurozone Financial Crisis Made Simple
by John de Roe
Completely predictably the leaders of Eurozone's solvent nations have cobbled together a deal to save the beleaguered Greek economy from defaulting on its debts. Predicable because firstly if Greece had been allowed to default and quietly leave the single currency scheme as it should have been, then Ireland, Portugal and probably Italy, Spain and Belgium would have followed in close order. So again we saw TV pictures of the smiling front men and woman led by Angela Merkel and Nicolas Sarkozy arriving at an anonymous and stereotyped office in Brussels, grinning like idiots as the promised to "work together to find a solution to Greece's problem. The jargon of international finance debt-to-GDP ratios, bond yields, haircuts, and deficit levels made even the rush hour traffic fumes seem only a minor pollutant, but what does it all mean?
Imagine someone you know who is not really poor but not exactly rich either. Their annual income is Ł20,000, below the national average for individuals but better than being on the dole or burger flipping and shelf stacking for minimum wage.. Now let's assume your pretend neighbour has run up personal debts of Ł30,000 over the years, and told a few porkies1 along the way to get their credit card limit raised and obtain a bank loan for a car and overdraft facilities to finance an extravagant lifestyle. Finally however the bank and the credit card company company have spotted that the neighbour is no longer borrowing to pay for cars, 60" Plasma TVs, foreign travel and such but is borrowing to finance living expenses and pay the interest on existing debts. Naturally the financiers have turned awkward, refusing any more credit and demanding that the loans be paid off at an interest rate of 40%-plus.
The next step is they will send in Lefty and the boys.
Your neighbour is not Joe the regular bloke but Greece, a small country that is better off than Bulgaria but not as well off as Germany. Greece's debt is running at 150% of national income and where there is not the remotest hope of turning the financial position around. Here a little insight into the workings of bond markets is needed. Traditionally Treasury Bonds were issues in E1000 (face value) units, redeemable at three or ten years and for treasuries usually at an interest rate of between 3% and 4% on face value. The Bonds are sold at a premium of discount (a price above or below face value) based on the economic stability of the nation and the prospects of inflation eroding the value. Calculate the interest due on the face value as a percentage of the actual price paid to determine the yield.
Greece's bonds are currently being sold at heavily discounted prices with twelve month and six month redemption dates at an interest rate of around 15% on face value. The face value versus actual price arithmetic gives us yields in the region of 40%. Unreasonable? Not really when the likelihood of default and the predicted levels of inflation are taken into account.
In similar circumstances, an individual would respond in two ways. They would try to boost their income, perhaps by doing a bit of moonlighting as a cab driver, prostitute or waiting on tables and maybe tighten their belts and cut down on living expenses. Or they would apply for a bankruptcy order, in effect defaulting on their debt obligations. But interest rates of 40% would mean the Ł30,000 debt gets bigger even though the new part-time job is bringing in a bit of extra cash and austerity measures have been implemented. The credit card bill gets bigger and bigger, despite all the austerity.
Like an individual struggling with debt Greece has passed the hat round to friends and family in the hope that they will help. In particular, it wants the German relatives to do what they have done during every other European crisis of the past half century write a big cheque to make the problem go away.
Uncle Fritz and Auntie Gertrude have grown tired of ponying up for the spendthrift members of the family. While political leaders may think saving the Euro is the priority German (and French, Dutch, Austrian and Finnish)2 taxpayers think that instead of chucking good money after bad to subsidise the idle slackers of southern Europe it is time to keep tax money at home where it can benefit the hard working and prudent people on whose labours economic success was built. It is time, they think, for the Greeks to get off their arses and get some work done while abandoning the unrealistic sense of entitlement that says sitting under an olive tree playing Pan Pipes and watching sheep eat grass all day is worth as much as building Mercs, Beemers, VWs, aircraft, diesel engines, radar systems and electrical goods.
An individual would at this point realise the game was up. If the rich relatives turned down the appeal for an emergency loan there really aren't any options left except to go bankrupt.
The analogy breaks down here. If an individual goes bust, there is plenty of pain and lots of misery but it is confined to a relatively small number of people. If a country goes bust, it affects all the banks and pension funds that have advanced shedloads of money down the years. German and Dutch banks. French and Austrian pension funds. |And British and American financial institutions too. That's why Greece will have the interest rate cut on the money it borrowed from other members of the European family. And why another massive loan will be approved.
We must however be near if not already at the point where voters rebel.
(1) porkies: rhyming slang - pork pies = lies.
(2) The other solvent nations in the European Union, Sweden, Denmark and Britain, are not members of the single currency scheme. Apart from that Britain and Denmark are struggling to keep their heads above water.

Eurozone Moves Closer To Federalisation With Latest Greek Bailout Plan
by Ed Butt
No post yesterday as we were all sick of the News International hacking scandal. Today however as the Euro crisis takes a very sinister turn and one that should scare seven colours of crap out of taxpayers who understand what deomocacy is, we report on how the deal hacked out between Germany and France moves Europe closer to federalisation with ancient nation states such as Portugal, Spain and Austria losing their soverignty and being ruled by unelected bureaucrats from Brussels.
Is it any wonder the international elite pushing the 'New World Order' global government do not want the nations of Europe to vote on the issue of federalisation?
As so often in the debt crisis sweeping Europe, German and French agreement on the latest Greek bailout was key to any deal.
The agreement between Hausfrau Merkel and Little Two Brains Sarko came after a day of discussion n Berlin with negotiations continuing late into Wednesday night.
Sources in both governments revealed the meeting also involved European Central Bank head Jean-Claude Trichet.
Dutch Finance Minister Jan Kees de Jager said a short-term or selective default for Greece which had previously resisted by the ECB, was now a possibility. "The demand to prevent a selective default has been removed," he told the Dutch parliament.
While few details of the Franco-German hve yet deal emerged, the sources said it would include private sector involvement.
Eurozone sources said a buyback of discounted Greek bonds to help reduce Athens' crippling debt pile was now seen as the most promising way of making private investors contribute to the cost of another financial rescue. The real test of the agreement will come when traders are asked to buy the Eurobonds. With so many basket case economies being supported by the taxpayers of Germany, France, Holland, Austria and Finland the big question is that as soon as elections are due will the voters follow those in Finland and support a strongly anti - Europe party. If this is thought likely investors are likely to want sky high interest rates from the paper they hold.
The eurozone sources said a buyback of Greek bonds on the secondary market was the only form of private sector involvement that might not trigger a selective default and it was now at the heart of the talks.
The risk premium investors demand to hold peripheral euro zone government bonds rather than benchmark German Bunds fell on Thursday on news of the Franco-German agreement.
The one worlders may have saved the Euro temporarily but in doing so have they infected the single currency's solvent economies with the virus that blights the basket cases.

At Last! A Politician Gets It. Well Done Nick Clegg
by John de Roe
The Liberal Democrats leader and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Cl;egg has said he is concerned the crisis in the eurozone could spread to Britain and have a direct impact on jobs.
It is so good to see that at least one politician is not obsessing about the News of the World scandal. But then it is worth noting that the Liberal Democrats are the only party of the three main players not tainted by association with News International's crooked activities.
Showing that he had his eye on the ball while others were distracted by the ginger minge affair Mr Clegg said, 'I fear we're on the brink of another financial crisis' The admission is the first time that a senior British politician has acknowledged that the problems in Greece, Spain and Italy could soon affect Britain.
European leaders are due to meet on Thursday of this week with the aim of cobbling together a plan for private-sector involvement in bailing out Greece.
Mr Clegg was asked on the BBCs Andrew Marr Show: How worried are you that we are on the edge of another really serious world financial crisis? He replied: Im incredibly worried. I think the gravity of the uncertainty in the United States, which is basically a product of political gridlock, and the growing fiscal crisis, sovereign debt crisis in the eurozone is immensely serious.
Again kudos to Clegg. So far people have been willing to point to the crisis in the Eurozone as a threat to the stability of the west but the far bigger Ameerican debt crisis and the economic illiteracy the Obama administration have shown in their inept and casual efforts to deal with it has been the elephant in the room.
Mr. Clegg said it would be foolish to think that Britain was able to wash our hands of the Eurozone crisis simply because the country was not a member of the eurozone.

Immigraion Should Be Frozen Says Labour Policy Adviser
by Ed Butt
And somebody else is getting the message at last too. Labour and particularly the politically correct left of the Labour party which includes leader Ed Milliband love immigrants. They can't get enough of the third world poor in fact. So much so thgat many have seriously suggested we abandon immigration controls and allow in anyone who wants to come and live here.
That number would include all of the world's two billion poor who have heard that in Britin the government will pay you a wage for doing nothing.
Lord Glasman, the leading policy adviser to the Labour leader, takes a different view however. He said over the weekend the country should draw the line on immigration and even renegotiate EU rules that allow free movement for migrant workers.
He told The Daily Telegraph that Britain is not an outpost of the United Nations and the needs of the British people must be put first.
The comments are the most drastic yet for any of the major political parties and would effectively end immigration in to the UK. Lord Glasman is at last saying what Labour's core working class voters want to hear.
However, the Labour metropolitan elite, a group with collectively despise the working class as much as they pity the 'poor' were quick to distance itself from the suggestions, dismissing the intervention by saying Lord Glasmans views were his own.
It seems then that hypocrisy and authoritarianism will continue to be the main planks of Labour policy into the next election.

We're Not Greece Says Obama As Fears About American Debt Grow

Standard & Poor's Join Moody's In Warning Of Credit Rating Downgrade Foe United States Government
Standard & Poor's has joined ratings agency Moody's to warn it could cut the United States' prized AAA credit rating if a deal on increasing the government's debt ceiling is not agreed soon.
As negotiations between President Obama and the Republican controlled House of Representayives stalled once again because of Obama's negotiating technique of throwing his toys out of the pram if he does not get his own way,S&P said there was now a 50/50 chance it could cut the rating as soon as this month if talks between the White House and Republicans remain unresolved. Any cut would be by one or more notches, it added.
The dollar fell almost half a cent to $1.42 against the dollar following the news. US Treasury bonds remained largely steady.
John Chambers, the chairman of S&P's sovereign ratings committee, said "this is the time" for the two sides to tackle the country's long-term debt problems. Unfortunaely Obama will not talk deficit reduction so long as it involves abandoning some of his loonytoons public spending plans.
"If we only get a limited agreement, that will lead to a downgrade," Chambers said in an interview.
A downgrade of America's rating will almost certainly raise borrowing costs not only for the United States but also for loans that use the Treasury rate as a benchmark.

Pentagon Hit By Cyber Attack As Hackers Steal Sensitive Files
bt Ed Butt
The United States government deputy secretary of defenceWilliam Lynn has admitted computer systms controlled by The Pentagon, the headquarters of American security services and the armed forces was hit by a cyber attack and suffered one of its largest ever losses of sensitive data in March 2011 when 24,000 files were stolen in a cyber-attack by a foreign government.
The data was taken from the computers of a corporate defence contractor.
Lynn said the US government had a "pretty good idea" which foreign government was responsible but did not elaborate.
Many recent cyber-attacks have been blamed on China or Russia, and one of the Pentagon's biggest security worries is that eventually a terrorist group will acquire the ability to steal data.
Mr Lynn disclosed the March attack in a speech outlining a new cyber-strategy, which formally declares cyberspace a new warfare domain, much like air, land and sea.
It calls for developing more resilient computer networks so the military can continue to operate if critical systems are breached or taken down.
The Daily Stirrer information technology expert Ian Thorpe would say it's simple. Abandon any Intel / Windows systems and phase out the 'anyone can do anything web' mentality. Ian's attitude has always been "What is so hard to understand about the phrase 'personal computer'. It means a person's very own computer and anyone who thinks its OK to srore or retrive data on it or run software without the owner's consent can fuck the fucking fuck right off.

News International Phone Hacking Scandal Spreads To USA
by Ed Butt
With the irresistible energy of a Tsunami, the phone hacking scandal which has already swamped News International's best selling British tabloid, derailed plans to gram a bigger stake in television broadcasting and internet service provision and is now threatening the quality broadsheet newspapers owned by the group is also causing questions to be asked in other countries.
News International Phone Hacking Scandal Spreads To USA Daily Telegraph
Rupert Murdoch is facing growing calls for an inquiry in the US after senators led by senators from both parties, Republican Peter King and Democrat Jay Rockefeller questioned whether News Corporation had engaged in "criminal" activity in America, including the possibility that the relatives of 9/11 victims had their phones hacked.
With hints from political and media insiders that there are more revelations to come of criminal activities by News International employees and freelancers working for Murdoch's organisation, it looks as if by the time the scandal has subsided the media landscape may look very different.

More On The Hacking Scandal
Family of murder victim Millie Dowler hold talks with Liberal Democrat leader The family of 13 year old Millie Dowler who was brutally murdered by serial killer Levi Bellfield were among the first to claim their phones had been hacked by agents working for The News of The World. Yesterday they met the coalition government's Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg to discuss possible action.
No Drama Obama blows a fuse
"I'se de President an' dem whitey all goan do what I say." Barack Hussein Obama stormed before walking out of a meeting with Republican congressional leaders on deficit reduction, telling them "enough was enough". (Well he didn't actually say those words, but close)
I has to be said the Obama's ghetto black act is still in need of a lot of work, being more Stepin Fechit than Richard Pryor but as an example of politics by throwing toys out of the pram it was fairly typical. In a press conference on Monday he ruled out a temporary agreement on raising the US debt limit, insisting "we might as well do it now pull off the Band-Aid, eat our peas".
It was the fourth such meeting in as many days to end fruitlessly, and the president's mounting frustration had been clear.
"They're in one week and they're out one week," he said, making his irritation plain. "You need to be here. I've been here. I've been doing Afghanistan and bin Laden and the Greek crisis. You stay here. Let's get it done."
Now let's just recap on what Bammy means by get it done. In spite of his nation's dire economic plight (the USA is effectively bankrupt) the President wants the Republican controlled House of Representtives to vote in favour of raising the legal debt ceiling enabling his spendthrift administration to borrow mor money on international markets. Before the Republicans will do this they want Obama to commit to an austerity programme to reduce the deficit by cutting public spending.
Bammy, a financial illiterate devoted to the loonytoons economics of socialism and to a programme of massive public spending on vanity projects refuses this and instead is demanding the Republicans yield and allow him to borrow as much money as China, Japan, India and Russia are willing to advance.
Clearly raising the debt ceiling will solve nothing. The massive borrowing programme Obama plans will simply sink the value of the dollar (already close to an all time low) on world markets.

Biggest Jump In Benefit Claims For Two Years
The number of people claiming unemployment benefit rose by almost double what was forecast last month to reach 1.52m its highest total since March 2010, official figures revealed today. The total number of people out of work actually fell however, according to the wider ILO measure of unemployment.
The unemployment rate for the three months to May 2011 declined by 0.1pc on the quarter to 7.7pc. The number of unemployed people fell by 26,000 over the quarter to reach 2.45m, with more young people aged 16 to 24 entering study or finding work.
The discrepancy in the figures from the Office for National Statistics is thought to be down to changes in the way benefits are calculated, in other words the government is cooking to books to hide how bad things really are. Nothing has changed since Labour was in power then.
The ONS said the number of people out of work for up to one year increased by 11,000 over the quarter to reach 1.64m. Long-term unemployment fell by 37,000 to reach 807,000, the figures showed.

Stock Markets Panic As Italy Debt Problems Mount
by John de Roe
Stock markets experienced a second day of massive falls on Tuesday as Italy, the biggest economy yet to be dragged into the Eurozone sovereign debt crisis struggled to avoid being forced to default on its debts. Elsewhere, the first nation to see its economy collapse, Greece, moved closer to default.
It give us no pleasure to reminnd you The Daily Stirrer has for two years predicted this would happen and warned of the dire consequences for western nation not involved in the single European currency.
Shares in Bank and Financial businesses were in retreat across Europe, driven by fears that Italy will soon be unable to borrow enough on the on the international money markets to meet its debt obligtions and finance its structural deficit. The euro lost value rapidly against all other traded currencies and hit a low of $1.388 it has now lost more than 3 cents against the dollar since Monday morning.
The FTSE 100 index was down by 133 points at one stage in London. It recovered slightly during a volatile trading session, and by 2.45pm stood at 5876. Barclays fell as much as 6.5% to 218p followed by Lloyds, down 4.7% at 42p.
"The banks are biggest fallers, because of concerns that the European crisis is spreading to Italy and Spain," David Jones, chief market strategist at IG Index told reporters.
In the bond markets, the yield or interest rate on Italian 10-year bonds approached 6%, its highest in a decade. Spanish yields hit 6.2% heralding trouble ahead for another of Europe's larger economies. Bankers and Bond traders have warned that these borrowing costs are unsustainable. Italy succeeded in selling 6.75bn (Ł6bn) of 12-month Italian bonds on Tuesday morning, but at the highest interest rate on such debt since September 2008, following the collapse of Lehman Brothers.
This helped the main Italian index, the FTSE MIB, to recover some losses. It tumbled by 4.1% in early trading with shares in Italy's biggest bank, Unicredit, being temporarily suspended after falling more than 7%.
The crisis in the eurozone demonstrates the pressure that is building up against the single currency as Europe's sovereign debt crisis continues. The contagion, so far contained within the small economies of Greece, Ireland and Portugal is now spreading like a cancer. The Spanish economy is bigger than Portugal, Greece and Ireland combined and Italy is still one of the world's ten largest economies.

Obituary For The News Of The World
by Ian R Thorpe
As we digestthe news that Rupert Murdoch's News Internation has killed Britain's top selling newspaper the 168 year old News Of The World the question has been asked, "why would a billionaire media mogul close a top selling newspaper to save the career of one woman?"
Well it's surprising what some men will do when they are besotted by a ginger minge.
Goodbye then to the News of the World, a once great British institution. As a prurient adolescent(weren't we all?) I would gather with my friends to read the salacious stories of adultery and sordid liaisons between 'good time girls' and 'tired businessmen on their way home from the city'.
They were always 'tired businessmen', perhaps if they had spent less time dallying with good time girls in the streets around Picadilly they might have had enough energy to run and hide at the sight of a man wearing a slouch trilby, a disreputable raincoat and a face that spoke of too many long nights in The Cheshire Cheese, Tho Old Cock or El Vino's who was approaching them clutching a reporters notebook.
We would ogle the rather chaste pictures of bikini clad 'starlets' and avidy consume all the tales od sex in the suburbs, satanism in the sticks and reporters who always made their excuses and left.
The most amusing thing about it, looking back, was they coy language used. "Intimacy took place" was a favourite euphemism to suggest extra mural bonking. Intimack usually too place in lay bys alongside quiet roads.
Things really went downhill in the 1980s however. The News of the World, driven by Murdoch's desire to dominate the media, was instrumental in creating celebrity culture and the addiction that fed on it. The more sensation people were fed, the more they demanded.
Like Steinbeck's monster that will die if it ceases to grow and must be constantly fed if it is to grow, the News of the World was eventually destroyed by the monster it spawned.
Perhaps that world seemed more exciting to me than my friends because my Dad was a newspaper man, for the distinctly highbrow News Chronicle and then the Daily Express and though not quite involved with the gutter press and covering the west midlands from a Manchester base rather than Fleet Street himself he would hear all the gossip and pass it on, suitably edited.
My fondest memory however comes from my days as a paper boy with a round covering two villages in Shropshire. A number of people I delivred to would have either The Sunday Times, The Sunday Telegraph or The Observer delvered along with The News of te World but insistes the NoW be folded inside the qualiy paper so the neighbours could not see it.
Is the News of the World gone forever? Media insiders are already suggesting that after a gap of a few months News International will launch a new downmarket Sunday red top. The World of News perhaps?

US Economy Jolted By Shock Jobless Figures
In spite of White House leaks suggesting positive news on unemployment US employers hired the fewer workers last month that in any month during the past two years. This has pushed up the jobless rate and scared the financial markets.
Crushing hopes of a turnaround in the jobs market inflated by much hot air from the President, companies have been increasingly cautious about hiring new staff amid the continuing economic uncertainty. Just 18,000 new starters were hired in June 2011, the US labour department said, well below the consensus forecast of 90,000 to 120,000, and the weakest reading since September 2010.
The shock figures pushed the US unemployment rate up from 9.1% to 9.2% the highest level since December 2010, when it stood at 9.4%

One of Iceland's most feared volcanoes, Hekla - known locally as The Gateway to Hell is causing volcanologists and geologists a lot of concern. Seismic readings gathered by a team of geophysicists suggest the volcano is ready to erupt, raising fears of a new ash cloud over Europe.
Hekla is close to the ash cloud producing Eyjafjoell, which last year caused the world's biggest airspace shut down since World War II, affecting more than 100,000 flights and eight million passengers.
Experts have said measurements of Hekla indicate magma movement under the earth's crust.
"The movements around Hekla have been unusual in the last two to three days," University of Iceland geophysicist Pall Einarsson announced.
"While this might not necessarily mean an immediate blast, the volcano is ready to erupt," he said, adding,"The mountain has been slowly expanding in the last few years because of magma build up."
Another geophysicist, Ari Trausit Gudmundsson, said measurements around Hekla were very "unusual" and the volcano looked ready to erupy violently. "Something is going on," he said, but explained that sensor readings and computer simulations can only suggest what might happen "If or when the volcano will eruptor how violent the eruption will be cannot be predicted," he said
The volcano, one of Iceland's most active, has erupted some 20 times over the past millennium. It's last eruption was in February, 2000.
It is so active that scientists estimate about 10 percent of the tephra - the solid matter ejected when a volcano erupts - produced in Iceland over the past millenium, about five cubic kilometres, comes from this one volcano.
Asked about what kind of disruptions could be expected if Hekla erupts, Mr Gudmundsson said the volcano tends to "produce both ash and lava within the first seconds of an eruption.But of course this depends on the size of the eruption, which is something that is impossible to predict," he stressed.
Lava eruptions are far less disruptive to air travel, and if the next eruption is of the same character as the previous ones in documented history it is unlikely that it will have any effects on flights in Europe.

7/7 Bomb Victims Families Hacked By News Of The World
Most newspapers and broadcast news stations not owned bt Rupert Murdoch's News International lead on the hacking of Bomb victims famillies' by private Investigators working for News International's biggest selling title The News Of The World today.
from The Daily Telegraph
Investigators working for the paper are thought to have hacked the phones in an attempt to find harrowing messages from distressed family members anxious for news of their loved ones.
Graham Foulkes, whose son David was killed at Edgware Road, said a senior police officer contacted him yesterday to warn him that he had may have been targeted by the News of the World.
He told the Today programme: I just felt really upset and sad and sickened that some people would go to those extremes given the distress of 52 families at that time.
I'm waiting to hear from police but we're still quite numb that somebody could have been so cold and hard to have listened to our phone conversations at a moment of such intense distress.

From a more left of centre perspective The Guardaian said:
The phone-hacking crisis enveloping the News of the World has intensified after it emerged that Scotland Yard has started to contact the relatives of victims of the 7 July 2005 attacks to warn them they were targeted by the paper.
The revelation that bereaved family members may have had their mobile phone messages intercepted by Glenn Mulcaire, a private investigator employed by the paper, in the days following the 2005 London bombings will heap further pressure on the title's owner, News International, part of Rupert Murdoch's media empire.
Police officers are also turning their attention to every high-profile case involving murder, abduction or attack on a child since 2001 in response to the revelation that journalists from the tabloid newspaper hacked into the voicemail messages of the murdered schoolgirl Milly Dowler

Revelations about The News Of The World's hacking activities have prompted Parliament to hold an emergency debate on the matter. A point that should be raised, in view of News Internationa's incredible claims that senior executives knew nothing of the criminal activities of its emplyees and contractors. News International has held a powerful if not controlling intereasst in BskyB since the satellite broadcaster was formed by the merger of Murdoch's Sky and British Satellite Broadcasting in the 1990s.
Were News International to gain full control of the satellite broadcasting company it would be in a very strong position to put the squeeze on ITV, cable operators Virgin and the BBC as reported in this BBC news item.
Only a few days ago the communications minister in the coalition government, Tristram Hunt (his name is not rhyming slang but soon will be we think) gave the nod to the takeover after the Liberal Democrat minister previously responsible, Business Secretary Vince Cable had heeded the fears of othernews providers that permitting the takeover would give News International too much power over British media. It is worth noting, because the linked story is in left leaning newspaper The Independant that Labour's anger at this deal is hypocritical in the extreme. News International were given the go ahead to launch the takeover bid when the Labour party (no longer the peoples' party but the party of academics, lawyers and career bureaucrats) were in power.
As the Conservatives are senior partners in the coalition, Cameron and his public schoolboy cohorts should be way of getting into bed with Murdoch. When politicians have got in bed with News International executives in the past they have ended up with a dose of someting so nasty non aligned voters would not touch them.

Dominic Strauss Kahn - Another New World Order Cover Up
by Profanicus Maximus
Oh so predicably the intenational conspiracy of bureaucrats, bankers and big business are closing ranks around the serial sex pest and leading proponet of the Nazi wet dream, a global government.
from The Daily Beast
A "top investigator in the case" tells the New York Post the Manhattan DA will drop charges against Dominique Strauss-Kahn, possibly at his next court appearance in two weeks. "Her credibility is so bad now, we know we cannot sustain a case with her," the source says of Strauss-Kahn's accuser. The Post says multiple investigators for both the defense and the prosecution believe ... read full story
After an intensive smear campaign by the American shit - bag liberal media to discredit his accuser, the US justice system now appears to be ready to cave in and demonise the hotel maid who says Strauss Kahn forced her to have sex with him.
The credibility of the maid's evidence may be crumbling under media pressure but the Washington Post reporter who said "Nothing that comes out of her mouth can be believed. We know that traces of semen found in her mouth bore Dominic Strauss - Kunt's DNA. I would not put much faith in the word of an African woman who (allegedly) entered the USA illegally, (allegedy) sold sex to other guests at the expensive hotel where DSK was putting up (like those guys could not afford the $1000 a night hookers who abound in New York) and (allegedly) worked as a protitute before leaving her homeland.
But them I would put even less faith in the word of an self serving international bureaucrat, member of an elitie who believe they ae above the law and can do what they like, when they like to whom they like. Pity the French if Strauss - Kunt manages to become President. The first thing he will do is restore Jus Primae Noctis.
The lack of credibility shared by accuser and accused show exactly why this case must be heard in court.
While we may have grounds to suspect the international Nazis of the United Nations, the IMFand the whole bunch of corrupt shit suckers and parasites have exerted pressure on the Obama administration, nobody is going to admit to that any time soon. Even so, if the skunk felching manipulators of the international elite manage to stop this case being heasrd in court as they have stopped so many other cases against their crooked lackey from being heard, we know there are enough sordid details waiting to be revealed to destroy Strauss - Kunt even in the eyes of the liberine tolerant French voters.

British Website Owners Under Threat From US Anti Priacy Law
by Ed. Butt
We used to ask when George Bush and Bill Clinton were Presidents of the USA, "who do the bloody yanks think they are?" Since American liberals shoehorned Barack Husssein Obama into The White House the world's most powerful nation has been run by a man determined to rule in the style of an African village tyrant.
The lastest neo - Nazi scheme to come from team Obama is typical of the 'President's' rather nasty brand of racism.
from The Daily Telegraph:
Foreign websites suspected of breaking US copyrights are being targeted by its Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency regardless of whether they are linked to the country.
Erik Barnett, the agency's assistant deputy director, said that all .com or .net websites were fair game if they were suspected of involvement in spreading pirated US films, TV or other media.
Although these web addresses are seen as global, their connections are routed through Verisign, an American-based internet infrastructure company, which is enough of a US connection for ICE to act on.
Offending websites could be closed down or their owners prosecuted, Mr Barnett said.
The agency is also targeting sites which indirectly contribute to piracy by providing links to offending websites.

David Cameron and his colleagues in the coalition government have shown themselves to be spineless sycophants when faced with Obama's racism and overt hatred of everything British so it's time we stood against American Naziism as we once stood along against Hitler.
Boycott American goods unless they are pirated or contraband. Only buy pirate versions of Hollywood movies. Post pirated versions of links to all American copyright materials, music, films TV shows and books.
And then let's blockade the airports and sea ports to disrupt trade with the USA. We must not allow one extradition under this bizarre proposal. If people have borken British law they must be dealt with by British law. If they have not broken British law and have not traveled beyond these shore we must not permit American Nazi bullies to demand their extradition.
Basrack Hussein Obama labours under the delusion that he is President of the entire universe and everything else besides and that makes him the most dangerous man in the world, far more dangerous than all the world domination freaks who have gone before him. We must disabuse him of his megalomaniacal fantasies before he starts a global conflict.

US Drones Fireed in Somalia
The U.S. expanded its drone campaign to Somalia last week, according to new statements from an American official, apparently wounding two members of the al Qaeda-aligned militant group al-Shabab. The strike was reportedly ordered after growing concerns that al-Shabab was working with al Qaeda to coordinate terror attacks outside of Somalia. This makes Somalia at least the sixth nation to be targeted by U.S. drones, along with Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, Iraq, and Yemen.

Greece: Violence Escalates as Parliament Approves Austerity Package
by Ed Butt
Minutes after hearing that the Greek parliament had approved a programme of tax increases and public spending cuts requred by the EU and IMF before the latest tranch of bailout money is handed over to the bankrupt government, protestors in the streets of Athens began rioting.
The Greek government has totally lost the plot and is so far out of touch with public opinion they might as well move their offices to a planet in the Betelgeuse galaxy.
With almost all members of the European single currency system (Euro zone) eith facing similar but less serious financial problems or the wrath of taxpayers seriously pissed off at having to fund the southern European basket case economies it looks like a rough ride ahead for the Euoro and the EU as a whole.

Australian Woman Set To Become World's Richest Individual
by Ed Butt
Gina Rinehart, 57, is already the richest person in Australia, it's predicted, will soon become the wealthiest in the world.
Her personal wealth has more than doubled to A$10.3 billion (Ł6.8 billion) in the past year due to the increase in commodities prices on world markets.
Ms Rinehart is on course to overtake Carlos Slim, the Mexican telecommunications magnate who is worth an estimated Ł46 billion, and the Microsoft chairman Bill Gates, who is worth Ł35 billion according to bankers Citigroup.
The financial community calculates that three coal and iron ore projects Rinehart's company is developing will lead her to overtake the top men mainly because she owns her companies outright and has no shareholders.
If Rinehart was a company listed on the [Australia Stock Exchange] and valued using the same 11-times price-to-earnings ratio as her partner, Rio Tinto, she would be worth US$30 billion (Ł19 billion), putting her in the top ten of the Forbes rich list, said SmartCompany, an Australian business website.
Strewth! Think how many tinnies you can buy with US$30 billion.

Scientists Caught Trying To Play God Again
by Ian R Thorpe
The genetic code of mice has been edited by "scientists" in a breakthrough that they claim could lead to new treatments for some hereditary diseases in humans.
The researchers managed to modify cells in mice to repair a faulty gene but, instead of recreating the flawed piece, the cells generated a healthy one.
The faulty gene was the one responsible for haemophilia, meaning that the process cured the mouse of the hereditary condition, which can be life-threatening in humans.
The research team hope the discovery could lead to development of better treatments for conditions affecting the immune system, bone marrow and the liver.
Genetic editing works by using enzymes to unlock the DNA. A new gene can then be inserted in the right place and the DNA made to reform around it.
All this sounds great of course but overlooks the tendency of scientists to (a) overstate heir achievements and (b) cross over to the dark side as soon as they sniff a bit of power. Huxley's Brave New World beckons again. Fortunately few of these hyperbolic claims ever amount to anything.

Eurozone Crisis Nears Meltdown
T"Sovereign and banking strains are the most material and immediate threat," the Bank of England Financial Policy Committee chaired by Mervyn King, the Bank of England governor, said in its inaugural report.
The committee called for banks to be more transparent in disclosing their exposure to sovereign debt problems. Mr. King also warned that authorities needed to keep a closer eye on the explosion of "opaque" products such as exchange traded funds (ETFs), which banks increasingly use to raise money from the financial markets.
His statement follows an overnight victory for David Cameron in preventing British taxpayers' money being used to bail out Greece which faces the probabiliy that it will have to default on paying interest due on its bonds. At a European Union summit in Brussels, the Prime Minister won a fight with Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, to keep Britain out of any new rescue package. Mr. Cameron said another bailout for Greece's effectively bankrupt economy would merely push the problem further down the road.
Germany had wanted to use money from the European Financial Stability Mechanism to bail out Greece. Britain is a contributor and has no veto on how its 11.85billion (Ł10.5billion) funds are used.
But Herman Von Rompuy - pumpy, the EU president, said that the EFSM would "not be part of the package".
Speaking at a news conference hours later, Sir Mervyn King said uncertaintainty over exposure to countries such as Greece could lead to a "crisis of confidence", which posed a bigger risk no national stability than direct exposure to losses that would accrue it Greece defaulted, making its debt obligations junk bonds.
Mr King also said the ongoing crisis in Greece was not a matter of liquidity, but solvency, and a build-up of large amounts of debt:
The Bank of England report comes as bankers scramble to avert a Greek debt default that would send shockwaves through international markets. The crisis is unfolding exactly as The Daily Stirrer's John de Roe predicted it would.

Afghanistan: The end is in sight or perhaps not
by Ed Butt.
All the newspapers and broadcast media are full of the Afghanistan withdrawal today. But is it a victory for western values as the pusillanimous poltroon Barack Hussein Obama, echoed by his sidekicks and the sycophantic leaders of other western nations involved will try to claim?
Or has it been a debacle from start to finish, the end looking like being an embarrassing withdrawal after the army of occupation put in by the USA, Britain and others, with over 100,000 men on the ground and equipped with high tech weaponry have been fought to a statemate by a bunch of bearded ragheads armed with rifles and improvised bombs?
Taliban will be part of Afghanistan's future says British military chief.
Barack Obama says tide of war is turning in Afghanistan. He''s right, it is turning against the USA and its allies.

Why doesnt President Barack Obama just put us out of misery and run up the White flag in Afghanistan?

Dangerous Decline In Ocean Environment
by Xavir Connolly
The world's oceans are in a worse state than was previously thought, according to new report from an expert panel of scientists.
from BBC News
In a new report, scientists warn that ocean life is "at high risk of entering a phase of extinction of marine species unprecedented in human history".
They conclude that issues such as over-fishing, pollution and climate change are acting together in ways that have not previously been recognised.
The impacts, they say, are already affecting humanity.
The report, commissioned by the International Programme on the State of the Ocean (IPSO), brought together experts from different disciplines, including coral reef ecologists, toxicologists, and fisheries experts. It will be formally released later this week.
Ah, a bunch of scientists, is that right? No wonder details of the report leaked tothe media read like another green scaremongering, research grant phisishing IPCC farrago.
"The findings are shocking," said Alex Rogers, IPSO's scientific director and professor of conservation biology at Oxford University, with understatement tpyical of those shallow and easily panicked people who dwell in science faculties..
"As we considered the cumulative effect of what humankind does to the oceans, the implications became far worse than we had individually realised. We've sat in one forum and spoken to each other about what we're seeing, and we've ended up with a picture showing that almost right across the board we're seeing changes that are happening faster than we'd thought, or in ways that we didn't expect to see for hundreds of years."
These "accelerated" changes include melting of the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets, sea level rise, and release of methane trapped in the sea bed, all of which have been disputed by independent groups.
It is worth noting the report does not suggest any views were sought from fishermn or people who live ner the sea and depend on it for their living. Another one to ignore?

Jobless Number Doubled Under Labour
James Kirkup, Daily Telegraph
Figures published by The Office for National Statistics show the number of UK households where no adult has ever experienced paying work doubled under the last Labour government. Coalition Ministers say the figures, from the ONS Labour Force Survey, demonstrate why the benefits system must be restructured to increase the financial incentives for welfare claimants to get and keep jobs.
When Tony Blair's government took office, riding on a wave of euphoria in 1997 there were 184,000 households where no adult had ever worked. In the second quarter of 2010, when Labour left office, the figure was 352,000. Earlier figures from the same source suggest that as much as half of the increase in workless households was explained by the increase in the number of students in higher education. Critics of the last Government however claim the figures showed that Labour had overseen a growing culture of welfare dependency in Britain. Many people have argued the Labour aspiration of 50% of school leaves going into higher education is too high and was used as a mask for the true state of the UK employment market.
US Credit Rating Threatened
John de Roe
America is at risk of losing its triple-A credit rating unless swift and significant progress is made over its debt ceiling, Moody's has warned, piling fresh pressure on the US a few hours before crucial employment data is released. The ratings agency is worried that the political stalemate between the US Treasury and Congress over whether to allow the US national debt to increase. It said that the risk of the US defaulting on its loans was "very small but rising", suggesting that the country might not deserve its AAA rating.
Other sources have said the US of A, the world's most powerful economy, could default as early as August this year if the wretchedly incompetent Obama administration is not allowed to borrow the money it needs to pay interest due on money already borrowed. Concress will only consider raising the limit if the President will start to tlk sense about cutting the burgeoning deficit by reducing spending. Obama, far more committed to vanity projects and buying votes for his re - election bid refuses to counternance this.
A spokesperson for the agency told media representatives, "Although Moody's fully expected political wrangling prior to an increase in the statutory debt limit, the degree of entrenchment into conflicting positions has exceeded expectations. The heightened polarisation over the debt limit has increased the odds of a short-lived default. If this situation remains unchanged in coming weeks, Moody's will place the rating under review."
Under US law, the country's national debt may not exceed $14.3 trillion (Ł8.75tn). That figure was reached last month, forcing America to dip into two government pension schemes to service its debts. That, though, will only tide the US over until the start of August.

We are back and not in the least intimidated by attempt to take us offline, the sole purpose of The Daily Stirrer is to challenge the lies, misrepresentations and misinformation put out masquerading as truth by governments, bureaucrats and corporate power abusers.
We're all going to starve - but not fatally
by Xavier Connolly
We have always tried to establish The Daily Stirrer as the centre of opposition to the New World Order's attempts to enslave and rule us by spreading far and panic. Remember the Fukushima Radiation Scare, the Icelandic Volcano dust scare, Swine Flu, Bird Flu, MRSA, AIDS, Killer Measles, E Coli, Mad Cow Disease?
The latest one is the food shortage. Were all going to starve we are told unless we surrender our power to think for ourselves and accept that the governments can only save us if we learn that we must never question authority. Who says so? The tame scientists who will say anything, produce any statistic required on them in return for a pat on the head in the form of an honorary degree, or a bit of corporate hospitality.
The truth is a few of us might get a bit hungry, mostly in the third world, not because of a shortage of food but because of market manipulation by a few amoral corporations that with the complicity of government, the United Nations and other supra national bureaucracies have been allowed to establish an unhealthy degree of control over global markets and food distribution systems. Food prices are surging, and not just because of a one-off commodities spike. According to Oxfam, the price of such staples as cereals will rise by between 120 and 180 per cent over the next twenty years.
Yea, the hind also calved in the field, and forsook it because there was no grass. And the wild asses did stand in the high places, they snuffed up the wind like dragons; their eyes did fail, because there was no grass. Well what did you expect. That is the inevitable consequence of ploughing up pasture to grow grain for biofuel or covering the land in wind turbines because no grass will grow where the huge concrete foundations the turbines need have been planted.
Oxfams proposed solution? Politicians should step in and regulate food prices. It is, of course, the eternal function of NGOs to demand that The Government Must Do Something; but surely even Oxfam has noticed that famines tend to occur in places where food production is regulated. Furthermore, regulation of the markets, whenever and wherever it has been tried from ancient Rome through Britain's disastrous corn laws in the nineteenth century and Stalin's collectivist economics of early twentieth century Russia to present day efforts in Africa and South East Asia have not only failed abysmally, they have brought on social catastrophe.
Fortunately, there is a tried and trusted, almost perfect mechanism to distribute food: the market. Lefties will hate this of course, the idea of any system working without it's being controlled by government, without there being ten tax eaters to administer the food supply for every farmer or fisher producing it, is utterly abhorrent to them, but since the earliest beginnings of urban civilisation it has worked. The current rise in the prices of grain and other stapes is sending out the message that land given over to ethanol or wind farms might more profitably be returned to the plough. That process will happen on its own: investors, collectively if not always individually, will respond - with a few aberrations when word domination freak corporations like Google kick off investment bubbles - rationally to market demand, without needing government intervention or even the hectoring of no - Stalinist do gooders.. The market has delivered more food to more people than any system devised by academics and bureaucrats.
So is there anything politicians could usefully do? Yes. They could fuck the fucking fuck right off and mind their own business. Buying the votes of the terminally stupid in support of crackpot policies like quantitative easing or pursuing unwinnable wars should be enough to keep anybody busy. The one thing they could usefully do is dismantle the food tariffs that condemn some of the poorest people on Earth to near - starvation. Scrapping the EUs Common Agricultural Policy would do more for the Third World than any amount of aid and would lower prices for European consumers. There would of course be a glut of unemployed tax eaters, paper shufflers and bean counter but we could kill them without anybody noticing. Their contribution to the world is negative.

Emissions Push Climate To The Edge?
by Xavier Connolly
On the day that Germany announced the Politically Correct Thought Police (Green Squad) have succeeded in finding a way to wreck Europe's powerhouse economy and reduce the only solvent large nation in the EU to the kind of penury being experienced by the economic basket case PIIGS (Portugal, Italy, Ireland, Greece and Spain we hear that despite all the efforts of the weirdie beardies to bully us into going green, despite all the billions of dollars, euros and pounds invested in crackpot schemes to turn
lead into gold
carbon into fertitliser or spent on ,jollies to exclusive resorts urgent summit conferences for scientists and politicians to discuss climate change we hear that according to the
crooks and liars
who warned of the carbon apocalypse, in spite of efforts to reduce emission
by outsourcing carbon intensive manufacturing processes to China and the developing world
introducing carbon caps and emissions trading schemes, we are getting nowhere.
Even the worst economic slump since the 1930s with the accompanying reduction of business activity has failed to curb rising emissions. According to climate scientists this is undermining any hope of keeping global warming to what they say are safe levels. As usual the 'scientific consensus is cited to suppress diverse opinions even though it has been shown beyond doubt there is no scientific consensus. All those scientists not in the pay of governments or corporations that stand to profit enormously from carbon trading, wind turbine manufacture, carbon capture, solar panels and other unlikely technologies have questioned the idea that climate change is caused by carbon emissions alone.
Greenhouse gas emissions increased by a record amount last year, to the highest carbon output in history, putting hopes of holding global warming to safe levels all but out of reach, according to unpublished estimates from the International Energy Agency.
Last year, a record 30.6 gigatonnes of carbon dioxide poured into the atmosphere, mainly from burning fossil fuel a rise of 1.6Gt on 2009, according to estimates from the IEA regarded as the gold standard for emissions data.
This rise, the report states, means the goal of preventing a temperature rise of more than 2 degrees Celsius which scientists say is the threshold for potentially "dangerous climate change" is likely to be just a Utopian pipe dream. It also shows the most serious global recession for 80 years has had only a minimal effect on emissions, contrary to some predictions.
Professor Stern of The London School Of Economics commented: "Such warming would disrupt the lives and livelihoods of hundreds of millions of people across the planet, leading to widespread mass migration and conflict. That is a risk any sane person would seek to drastically reduce."
The IEA (International Energy Agency) has calculated that if the world is to escape the most damaging effects of global warming, annual energy-related emissions should be no more than 32Gt by 2020. If this year's emissions rise by as much as they did in 2010, that limit will be exceeded nine years ahead of schedule, making it all but impossible to hold warming to a manageable degree.
In spite of all these prophecies of disaster and doomsday scenarios the science lobby scream for more technology and more heat dependent industrial processes while economists and politicians scream for more consumption and more economic growth.
Anybody with half a brain cell should be able to see reducing carbon and maintaining growth are incompatible goals.

Wither Euro? How Long Can The Single Currency Survive?
by John de Roe
After the pantomime of toxic debt, dodgy bankers and Collateralised Debt Obligations, anything the clowns of the credit-rating agencies say about Europe's sovereign debt crisis should be treated with the same indifference as Harold Camping's Apocalyptic prophecies. Unfortunately we have little alternative than to use the ratings agencies as there are few available ways to accurately assess the health of a nation's finances.
Having utterly failed to warn about the risks of burgeoning debt among the poorer eurozone nations, Standard & Poor's has observed custom and practice in the financial reglation business by making a bad situation worse. The influential agency has put Italy on negative credit watch, thereby generating a fresh bout of nerves in already dangerously unsettled markets. There are other factors at work in the current jitteriness of dealers, not least the USA's dire position regarding it's debt ceiling and the deadlock between 'President' Obama and congress but S&P's latest report has not helped.
To repeatedly downgrade the basket casees, Greece, Ireland and Portugal is one thing, but to target Europe's fourth-largest and the eurozone's third largest economy is another entirely. Spain and Italy had been regarded as relatively stable, but both are now being made to look ever more vulnerable. For either of them to be denied access to markets would surely test European appetite for bail-outs to breaking point and possibly lead to insurrection by the German taxpayers who are already bearing the brunt of the financial catastrophe this catastrophically failed experiment in one-worldism has caused
A rating agency has no business trying to support the euro but Italy makes an odd choice to be put on negative watch. True enough, the country already has very high net public indebtedness at some 116pc of GDP. The crisis of the past three years has all but wiped out the advances Italy achieved in the previous decade in paying down its debt.
Yet if the eurozone periphery crisis is seen as essentially a banking crisis which has transcended the world of finance and now threatens to engulf the political infrastructure of the European Union. Had the problem remained in the banking sector Italy would have little to worry about. Its banking sector is quite small relative both to others and to the size of the Italian economy, the reason for this being nobody in their right mind would trust Italian banks and they therefore find it impossible to expand their balance sheets with the same reckless disregard for risk that others showed in the run up to the crisis. This being the case, private and household debt in Italy is very low by European standards. Taking the two together private as well as public debt Italy is in fact a good deal more solvent than the UK.
Where S&P does have a point is that the chances of getting back to financial stability remain poor as long as economic growth remains almost stagnant.
Few steps are being taken to remedy the imbalances that are holding back growth and political paralysis threatens to hamstring any international efforts to start putting things back together. Last but by no means least, membership of the euro gives Italy limited monetary flexibility, without which the country cannot begin to deal with its problems unilaterally.
This is exactly the situation people opposed to the Euro predicted would exist ten years after the introduction of the single currency.

Eurozone Debts And Default Fears Panic In The Markets
The euro curency and stock markets across Europe have fallen sharply this morning amid renewed fears that Greece will default on its sovereign debt obligations. Fears over the consequences of eurozone debt crisis showing no sign of abating around the world as the crisis goes on.
Borrowing costs for heavily debt burdened governments also rose, with Italy and Spain suffering the biggest hike to their interests charges. Market worries are exacerbated by the fear that debt restructuring by Greece could hit Europe's banks and other governments that are hevily exposed on Greek debt.
The latest batch of bad news for economic managers included weak eurozone economic performance, a local election defeat for Spain's socialist government and a negative credit rating outlook for Italy.
Energy and mining stocks did particularly badly on the news, as oil prices fell back towards recent lows on fears the global recovery may be slowed by debt problems in Europe and tighter monetary policy to counter inflation in China.
Against the Swiss franc - seen as a safe-haven from the debt crisis - the euro hit a new all-time low of 1.2324 francs.
In an interview with German weekly newspaper der Spiegel, the Luxembourg prime minister and head of the Euro group, Jean-Claude Juncker, reiterated his idea that a soft landing could be engineered for Greece if its government met demanding policy targets. Mr Juncker explained that the restructuring would involve deferral of repayments and a cut in interest payments, to be agreed with the country's lenders.
He added it would need to be done in a way that would not be seen a default by the international rating agencies, which would cause an "enormous problem" for Europe's banks, who would then have to include billions of dollars worth of losses on their balance sheets.
He also confirmed that any restructuring and additional financial support would only be forthcoming if Greece stepped up privatisations and painful austerity measures.
Greece's cost of borrowing in bond markets has continued to rise steadily, as expectations of an eventual default rise.
The yield on its 10-year bonds rose another half a percentage point to 16.8% on Monday, up from 15.3% a week ago. Other countries also saw their borrowing costs rise, as markets remain concerned that a Greek default could trigger a broader meltdown. Spain's 10-year borrowing cost increased to 5.6%, its highest level since January.
Italy's government is said to be planning to bring forwards 35bn-40bn euros (Ł30bn-Ł35bn; $49bn-$56bn) of austerity measures to June in response to the country's cost of borrowing rising in financial markets following S&P's move, to 4.87% from 4.77%, before falling back again in morning trading.

Osama Bin Laden Planned Easter Bomb Campaign
by Ed Butt
In the latest attempt to convince a sceptical world that the man who (allegedly) is the first perfect human being in 2000 years did something really miraculous in personally leading a team of US Navy Seals to a run down apartment in Pakiskan where they killed an elderly man who looked a bit, but not much like the world's most wanted terrorist, Osama bin Laden, The Obama Administration
lie machine information department is putting out bogus intelligence.
In the latest snippet of fear and panic generating fiction released to British Intelligence, information contained in computer files seized by US special forces bin Laden was masterminding a plan to bomb Easter shoppers in Britain.
Easter shoppers? It's understandable that a man who has been dead as long as Osama bin Laden (died sometime between 2002 and 2006) was out of touch but Easter shopping in Britain? At Easter we all pile in our cars announcing a trip to the coast or countryside and spend a day sitting in a tailback on our gridlocked motorways system.
Any attempt to blow up cars in the tailbacks would be futile because holdups are caused by contra flow systems introduced to allow for road maintenance. The Road Transport authority employs crack squads of undercover traffic engineers (far more effective than undercover security agents) to move the contra flows so motorists can never predict where they are and head for another destination or avoid them by taking an alternative route.
No worries. the information that has been passed to our government on the instructions of Barack Hussein Obama, the man who tells God what to do. It is some of the first top-secret intelligence to have been passed back from the bin Laden operation, according to senior Government sources. We should feel honoured. So how real was the threat?
The Manchester based terrorist cell suspected on the strength of the bin Laden data of plotting to blow up landmarks in the city during this years' (2011) Easter holiday was broken and its members arrested in 2009. Police were unable to press charges however because of a lack of evidence and their treatment of the suspects at the time, which violated British and international law became a cause célčbre for MPs, lawyers and human rights groups.
An attempt last year to deport the alleged ringleader of the plot then failed on human rights grounds because he claimed he would be tortured if he was returned to Pakistan. Most of the alleged cell members have now left Britain.
So it seems the CIA's discovery of a security thread to 'Easter shoppers' in Manchester was just a tad off target, as was the CIA's claim to have detained 'known suicide bombers' a few years ago. Still, kudos to the Yanks. Once again they have demonstrated that the phrase Military Intelligence is a contradiction in terms.

House Prices Predicted To Fall Further
New of a further drop in mortgage lending in March and April 2011 will surprise nobody. The Council of Mortgage lenders reported gross lending fell to Ł9.8 billion in April, down from Ł11.4 billion in March, and 5 per cent lower than a year ago.
Industry officials tried to gloss over the poor performance of the property market. A CML economist named
Waddac Hunt Bob Pannell, said: It represents an unfortunate temporary loss of signal, at a time when it would be useful to gauge the resilience of house purchase demand to economic uncertainties and the pressure on household incomes. The bank holidays last month including Easter and the Royal Wedding - saw many workers enjoy extended holidays in exchange for taking just a few days annual leave. Levels of activity look set to remain broadly flat over the near-term. It now seems unlikely that interest rates will rise much, if at all, this year and this should help keep the market on an even keel.
Right so. The continuing slup is nothing to do with rising prices, falling incomes and people's fears that their jobs are not secure then?
More objective Market Analysts warned reduced activity in the housing market would translate into falling house prices. The average price of a home in Britain has already dropped to Ł160,000, down from Ł200,000 four years ago before the beginning of the second great depression.
Further falls in house prices are likely over the coming months as tighter fiscal policy and the possibility of gradually rising interest rates before the end of 2011 maintains pressure on the housing market. And if you think that sounds bad just wait until the good ol' US of A defaults on its debt which copuld happen as soon as August this year. The Obama administration and the American House of Representatives are currently at stalemate over funding. The legally enforced debt ceiling has been reached, The House want Obama to cut spending, Obama refuses to consider cuts to his loonytoons spending plans and wants congressment to sanction raising the debt ceiling so he can borrow money to pay interest on his loans.
If anybody tells you the recession is over and economies are returning to growth, they are lying. Borrowing money does not represent creating growth in the economy.
Parents To Be Forced To Help With Homework
A government adviser said encouraging parents to discuss lesson topics with children, and requiring pupils to read more widely outside school, could drive the next stage of our development as a nation. Seems to us that well known bureaucrat Waddac Hunt is on the loose again.
Tim Oates, head of the advisory panel on curriculum reforms for England, argued that the best school systems around the world involved significant levels of education at home. Well he's right there, kids get their education at home and in the street and go to school to be indoctrinated with politically correct ideology.
Headteachers have welcomed Mr Oates's idea but his proposal to use the statutory curriculum to prompt more parents to get involved with their children's homework, in effect to make parents legally obliged to help with the homework, drew criticism from family campaigners.
Mr Oates, director of research at exam board Cambridge Assessment, said he wanted to encourage a debate on how the new curriculum might contribute to learning at home, a plan he has discussed with ministers. He told the Times Educational Supplement: The national curriculum could be one of the instruments which one uses to encourage wider reading among younger people. If they are doing it at home it may help us to close the gap between those from well-off and not so well-off backgrounds. "
If we have clarity in the national curriculum, parents from any social background would have a greater chance of understanding what it is that they should be doing at home at any one time which would help childrens attainment, he said. It could be just talking about a topic.
Wewll bureaucratic bullshit like that is really going to help, isn't it?
Mr Oates conceded that ministers had no legal power to set levels of homework, but he continued: one can put things in the national curriculum which obviously require a programme of work which couldnt be entirely covered within normal school hours.
A spokesman for the National Association of Head Teachers said using the national curriculum to give parents a clearer view of what happens in class would be positive. Margaret Morrissey of the pressure group, Parents Out Loud, said: The national curriculum is already extremely clear. Every responsible parent already does the things that [Mr Oates] is suggesting and those that dont will never do them in a million years.
Mr Oates cited Finland, Singapore and Hong Kong as high-performing systems where a lot more learning takes place outside school to support work in the classroom.
Research has shown after-school work in Asian countries is mainly through private tuition. Mr Oates is not keen on that and wants to ensure that changes do not drive more families towards tutors in England. Well he would, wouldn't he. Got to keep compete control of minds in the hands of the Politically Correct Thought Police.

Unemployment Falls - Claiman Count Rises
Unemployment fell by 36,000 in the first three months of the year despite the economy's lacklustre rate of growth, official figures show, in a rare piece of good news for George Osborne. The Office for National Statistics said the number of people out of work on the government's preferred International Labour Organisation measure fell to 2.46m, taking the unemployment rate to 7.7%, from 7.8% in the three months to February..
Youth unemployment a potential political hot potato for the coalition also declined, to 935,000, although that still means one in five 16-to-24-year-olds are out of work.
There was fresh evidence of the labour market's continued vulnerability, however, with a 12,400 increase in the more timely claimant count measure for April, with more than three quarters of the rise accounted for by women, who tend to be disproportionately hit by cuts in public sector jobs. The number of women claiming out-of-work benefits, at 474,000, is now at its highest level since 1996.
Howard Archer, of consultancy IHS Global Insight, said the jump in the claimant count in March could signal further weakness in the coming months. He pointed out that while 118,000 new jobs were created in the three months to March, most of those were in January, with just 7,000 new hires last month
He said: "We suspect that likely below-trend growth will mean that the private sector will be unable to fully compensate for the increasing job losses in the public sector that will result from the fiscal squeeze that is now really kicking in. Indeed, we believe that private-sector companies will become increasingly careful in their employment plans in the face of a struggling economy and elevated input costs."
There is still little evidence of inflation-busting wage rises, according to the ONS report average pay rose at an annual rate of 2.3% including bonuses, or a more modest 2.1% when bonuses are excluded.
Chris Williamson, chief economist at Markit, said that was good news for the Bank of England's monetary policy committee as it battles inflation; but bad news for anyone trying to sell goods and services to hard-pressed British consumers.
"The advantage of low pay growth is that it will help keep the current high rate of inflation from becoming entrenched. The downside is that, with inflation at 4.5%, this means that real pay is falling at a rate of 2.3% a year, which is going to further stifle consumer spending. This weakness of the household sector may well be a feature of the economy for some time to come," he said

UK Inflation Soars Again
by John de Roe
Latest figures from the treasury show inflation has risen again, by half a percentage point to 4.5pc. The consumer price index (CPI), the Government's official measure of inflation, accelerated at its fastest rate since 2008, far outstripping economists' predictions of a 0.1 percentage point rise.
This means inflation continues to run at more than double the Government's target of 2pc. The retail prices index, which includes housing-related costs, fell by 0.1 percentage points to 5.2pc, from 5.3pc the previous month but so small a change can hardly be considered good news.
Basic-rate taxpayers now need a savings account paying 5.63pc in order to beat inflation, while higher-rate taxpayers have to earn an interest rate of 7.5pc to beat the CPI. In fact people withn savings find it very difficult to get more than 2.5% interest. According to calculations by Moneyfacts.co.uk, the exponential effect of inflation on savings means that Ł10,000 invested five years ago, allowing for average interest rates, inflation and basic-tax at 20pc, would have the spending power of just Ł9,481 today.
And so the financial crisis goes on as The Daily Stirrer has always warned it would.
Only a couple of days ago we reported that the USA was about to hit its debt limit, the level of debt legally set by congress as the maximum the government is allowed to owe. US debt is currently capped at $14 trillion by this legal constraint.
As the President and Congress are deadlocked over the raising of this ceiling, Obama refusing to budge on his spending plans which will increase debt exponentially and congress refusing to counternance an increase in toital debt until the president lays out plans to reduce spending, the world's most powerful nation, the economic powerhouse that drives the global economy, is just two months away from having to default on it's loans.
If you think we have had a tough time economically since 2008, you ain't seen nothing yet.

Dominic Strauus Kahn taken to New York's Notorious Riker's Island Jail.
The head of the International Monetary Fund Dominic Strauss Kahn has been refused bail and remanded in custody by an American court after being arrested in New York following allegations of sexual abuse. Mr Strauss-Kahn was transferred from a detention centre attached to the Manhattan Criminal Court to the notoriosly tough Rikers Island prison on Monday, a spokesman for the New York City Department of Correction said.
The judge who ruled on the bail application said Strauss Kahn, an internationaal known bureaucrat who would be recognised asnywhere in the world, posed a 'flight risk'.
Defence lawyers said they were considering whether to appeal the bail ruling. Should the judge uphold his ruling, Mr Strauss-Kahn could be held at Rikers throughout any trial.
The Daily Stirrer commented yesterday that the whose thing was begining to stink. Alread several conspiracy theiries are in circulation as to why Straus Kahn might have been stitched up and by whom.
COMMENT On This Incident:
The French Attitude To Sex Crime Would Shock The US
The French apparently regard the sight of a powerful politician in handcuffs to be more shocking than the possibility that an African immigrant chambermaid was imprisoned and sexually assaulted. Thats cultural variation for you. As my colleague Ben Brogan points out there may be some legitimate grounds in French legal terms for national outrage over Dominique Strauss-Kahns apparently ignominious treatment

One interesting thing about the fall of Dominique Strauss-Kahn is that it has become increasingly clear that IMF technical staff are not fully aligned with eurozone political leaders regarding the eurozone sovereign bailouts, but Strauss-Kahn was (unsurprisingly, given his high-profile role in French politics). The central European political doctrine, since 2008, has been no creditor shall lose.

IMF Chief Arrested
by Ian R Thorpe
The news that Dominic Strauss Kahn, head of the International Monetary Fund and French Presidential hopeful has been arrested in New York on charges of sexual assault dominates front pages today. Mr. Strauss Kahn was remanded pending medical examination but whether he is charged or not his arrest is likely to destabilise attempts to resolve the Eurozone sovereign debt crisis.
Read the story of the accusation and arrest in The Guardian
Conspiracy theorists have been busy since the news broke, some suggesting the arrest was a stitch up organised by Europeans who want the Eurozone to collapse so the prosperous nations can shrug off their responsibility to the economic basket cases of southern Europe. Others have suggested French right wing organisations are probably involved, hoping to derail the campaign of the man strongly fancied to be chosen as the socialist candidate in the next French Presidential election.
Another possibility circling the rumour mill is that the arrest is a retaliatory move from The White House coming as it does shortly after the IMF issued a very strong warning to the Obama administration about the consequences of faling to address America,s debt problem.
This one obviously has a long way to run.
Was Strauss Kahn Arrest A Stitch Up
Arrest rocks French Presidential race
As if being led from his hotel in handcuffs was not bad enough, the uberbureaucrat was rocked by more allegations of sexual misconduct dating back to 2002.
Strauss Kahn Faces further sexual assault allegations
As far as The Daily Stirrer is concerned, the downfall of Dominic Strauss Kahn can only be a good thing for freedom lovers. Whether or not he is a sexual bully or worse, he has been one of the leading proponents of a global financial system and has spoken many times of establishing a system of global governance.

Obama Threatens US Debt Default If Government Not Allowed To Borrow Money To Pay Debt Interest
by James Dahlberg
You just have to look on slack jawed that the antics of Barack Obama, putative President of the United States of America, one known as the most powerful nation on earth but now due to several decades of politically correct thinking in high places and just two years of this half - educated clown at the helm a laughing stock internationally and the despair of thinking Americans.
We have a huge budget deficit and are maxed out on the debt ceiling imposed by Congress with the intention of ensuring our nation stayed solvent in the face of demands from do gooders. On one hand we have bleeding heart liberals who think Americans should support he impoverished people of every economic basket case nation in the third world. On the other there is the insatiable appetite for taxpayers money of domestic 'Community Organisers' and civil rights groups claiming to represent the interests of minorities who seem to be more successful at linking their own pockets than helping the people they claim to represent.
Obama warns of new financial crisis if US defaults on debt (If only we saw objective reporting like this in the US media which has become completely government friendly in the past few years)
A debt warning has come from The White House today as the US moves ever closer to a $14.3 trillion debt ceiling, which Congress needs to increase in a matter of weeks to prevent the government defaulting on its borrowings for the first time in history. Is that warning a message from the President telling Americans they must prepare for some very severe austerity measures? No, Obie has signalled that he plans to keep spending at an accelerating rate and that if congress do not approve a rise in the debt ceiling allowing the administration to borrow the money it needs to service its debts the President, The Obamessiah, will allow the USA to default on its debts, thus plunging the world into an even greater financial crisis that we faced in 2008.
This is just the latest demonstration of Barack Hussein Obama's penchant for throwing his toys out of the pram when he does not get his own way.
Given US government debts in the form of bonds, or Treasuries as they are known, are considered the safest asset in financial markets and held by investors and central banks around the world, few people would want to imagine the consequences of a default.
"If investors around the world thought that the full faith and credit of the United States was not being backed up, if they thought that we might renege on our IOU's, it could unravel the entire financial system," President Obama said at a town hall meeting late yesterday.
"We could have a worse recession than we already had, a worse financial crisis than we already had."
The US Treasury has projected that the debt limit will be reached this month, though Timothy Geithner, the Treasury Secretary, has said he can juggle accounts until early August to avoid a default.
The American people must stand firm, Obama's 'loonytoons' spending as the Daily Stirrer calls it has already increased American sovereign debt by a huge amount. Have we any right to saddle future generations with the bill for financing the vanity projects of this jumped up little pipsqueak?

Taliban Revenge For The Killing Of Osama bin Laden Begins
by Ed Butt
The Pakistani Taliban were quick to claim responsibility for the double bomb attack that killed over 80 people in that country yesterday. Their message to the media said bigger attacks were to follow.
A suicide bomber on a motorbike struck at the gates just as young recruits boarded buses to go on leave after their course. Police in Shabqadar, close to the border with Afghanistan, said a second explosion came seconds later.
The attack, in Charsadda district is the the fist in what is expected to be a wave of attacks in retaliation for the Pakistani government's failure to stop the commando raid in which a crack squad of US Navy SEALS allegedly killed Al Qaeda founder Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad, Pakistan, on May 2.
Pictures so far released have show a man identified as the SEALS target but who looked nothing at all like the most recent, verified pictures of Osama. Other inconsistencies in stories put out by the Pentagon and the Obama Administration public relations machine, far from providing proof that bin Laden is dead have fuelled numerous conspiracy theories.
For an example a picture issued to the media that purported to show President Obama and leading members of his team watching the fatal raid live via a web feed from a helmet cam. worn by one of the soldiers was quickly identified as having been photoshopped while a military technology expert revealed that the type of helmet mounted camera worn by personnel to document covert operations is not capable of linking to the internet (a fact instantly known by technically literate people).
Western politicians continue to destroy what little credibility they have left in the eyes of the public by sucking up to the White House and supporting Obama's vain, narcissistic and self serving version of events in which he has tried to milk the very obviously staged publicity stunt for political capital to save his failed Presidency.
William Hague, the UK's Foreign Secretary, this morning condemned the Taliban attacks as "cowardly and indiscriminate", yet only a week ago Hague was praising the American government for an attack which violated Pakistani sovereignty and was in total contravention of international law. What makes Hague's hypocritical position worse is that the UK government knows as well as The Daily Stirrer and has probably known for longer that Osama bin Laden died of kidney failure several years ago.

More Graduates Stuck In Low Skill Jobs
by Xavier Connolly
More University graduates, on leaving college are being forced into taking jobs that do not require graduate level educational qualifications due to lack of openings for graduates in the jobs market, according to research published today. The study shows that six months after leaving university, approximately 40% of last year's graduates are unemployed or "underemployed"; working in lower-skilled jobs. This is an increase of about 30% over a four year period.
The figures published by the Association of Accounting Technicians show new graduates to be worst hit by the recession and ongoing financial crisis.
A degree remains a "good investment", says a government spokesman. Well he would say that wouldn't he as the coalition government are hoping to persuade students to take on massive loans to pay for increased tuition fees, loans that only become repayable when graduate level salaries kick in. This means many people, having taken on mortgages or started families will find themselves in a poverty trap, unable to take a job appropriate to their level of education because student loans repayments will plunge them into penury.
The research, carried out by the Centre for Economics and Business Research, forecasts a worsening jobs market for graduates who will leave this summer. It also warns that 55% of the next wave of university leavers will either be working in nongraduate jobs, or will be unemployed, six months after they finish at university.
The report says this raises doubts about the financial value of degrees which when fees and student loans were brought in under the Labour government were sold to pupils leaving school or college as a surefire path to career success and financial security.
"If we are asking people to invest Ł9,000 a year on tuition fees, they should expect a credible return on that investment," said Jane Scott Paul, the association's chief executive.
The report goes on to conclude "many university subjects are offering very poor returns in terms of improved job prospects".
There are variations between different subject areas, with history and philosophy graduates are most likely to be "underemployed". The Daily Stirrer wonders how true this is and what proportion of graduates in graphic design, media studies, art history, social and political science or drama and dance are finding jobs in fields related to their specialist subject.
Graduates in medicine, dentistry and veterinary science are the most likely to be in graduate employment.
The report also looks at graduate unemployment - warning that since the financial crash of 2008 "unemployment among new graduates has risen drastically".
The figure for those without jobs six months after graduating has risen from about 11% in 2007 to 20% for those graduating in 2010.
The study estimates that about 59,000 of last year's graduates have not found jobs, and that unemployment among new graduates is rising to levels not seen since the mid-1990s.
Again The Daily Stirrer has stated many times the target set by Labour and taken up by the coalition government of having 50% of school leavers go on to higher education to graduate with university degrees produces far more graduates than a society needs. Meanwhile we are having to recruit from abroad to fill the need for non professional engineers, builders, plumbers, electricians, mechanics, technicians nurses and all those other vital skills that university cannot equip people for.

EU To Reform Disastrous Fisheries Policy?
by Ed Butt
Those Eurowankers the European Commission policy committee on agriculture and fisheries, almost wiped out fish stocks around Britain and the northerly coasts of Europe with their gobsmackingly idiotic conservation policy of imposing quotas on fish landed, thus forcing trawler operators to throw back into the water fish that were perfectly healthy when caught but are so damaged by being hauled out of the water, dumped in tanks and sorted by burly blokes they have little chance of survival once discarded. Having tucked that very notable achievement under their belts (if only there was a Nobel prize for stupidity and incompetence these guys would walk it every year.; Now, having go the message twenty years too late this bureaucratic monster is planning to reform the EU's fishing industry by giving vessels quota shares guaranteed for periods of at least 15 years.
The commission will issue a proposal on reforming the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) in July, to take effect in 2013. A draft obtained by BBC News outlines moves the bureaucrats claim are 'conservationist' but that environmentalists are already describing as "virtual privatisation of the oceans".
Under the current system up to half the catch of some species has to be discarded because vessels have exceeded their quota, or because the fish are undersized.
The final decisions on fishing quotas will stay with politicians, not scientists, the conservationists claim. There lies the problem. If there is one group of people more likely to fuck up than politicians it is scientists. It was, was it not, the coneheads who proposed the current quota system as a way of conserving fish stocks. And naturally the objections of people who pointed out that fishing crews have no control of what swims into their nets thus the 'scientific' system of imposing quotas on fish landed at port would result in massive wastage rather than conservation were dismissed as unscientific.
Ask a scientists what is scientific and if you get an answer at all it will distill down to; "Whatever I say is scientific today is scientific. It may change tomorrow of course."

Bank Of England Hints At Rate Rise Soon
by John de Roe
The Bank of England Monetary Policy Committee has said its central forecast in updated predictions for the economy is that inflation will return to the 2pc target over the next two years if interest rates ae raised when markets expect. That prepares the way for the Banks benchmark borrowing rate to rise from its record 0.5pc low by a quarter of a percentage point around November and to reach 2pc within two years, according to the rate rises it sees markets factoring in.
"At first sight the inflation report suggests a rate rise at the end of this year is consistent with getting inflation back on target in the medium term," said Philip Shaw, an economist at Investec.
Howard Archer, UK economist at IHS Global Insight agreed. "The May quarterly inflation report suggests overall that interest rates are more likely than not to start rising gradually late in 2011," he said.
Under this central forecast, the headline rate of price rises, currently double the Bank's target at 4pc, will not fall back to the target until early 2013, later than previously expected my mainstream pundits but exactly as predicted by The Daily Stirrer.

A Bigger Constitutional Change Than AV And No Referendum
by Ian R Thorpe
A permanent constitutional change that would alter the shape of Britih democracy more than the the proposed switch to the Alternative Vote system which was defeated in last week's referendum is being forced through the parliamentary process by the Coalition government.
The British people have not been consulted on the change. It is wrong and it must be resisted. That, in essence, is the case that will be made later today by Lord Butler. The chances are however you have heard nothing of this.

The Left Is In Meltdown All Over Europe
Tempting though it is to blame the weakness of Ed Miliband's leadership for Labours poor performance in the local and regional elections, I doubt Labour would have fared much better under anyone else. As David Goodhart pointed out in The Independent, Labours success has traditionally been dependent on an alliance between the traditional working-class and middle-class liberals and that alliance has collapsed. The working class know middle class 'liberals' despise them and would infantilize them for the sake of advancing an agenda of state control.

What Differentiantes A Sceptic And A Conspiracy Theorist
In comments on this thread 'The Birthers Become Deathers
' many people were complaining about the way 'conspiracy theorist has become an implicit accusation of stupidity aimed by the sheeple who follow herever big govrernment leads at those who ask intelligent questions, point to inconsistencies in evidence and stories (e.g. Video footage claiming to show multimillionaire Osama Bin Laden watching himself on TV actually featuring an elderly middle eastern man who even in the restricted view available looked nothing like bin Laden sitting in a squalid room watching a small, cheap television - just as we would expect a multi millionaire to do).
The consensus in the thread was that 'conspiracy theorist has become a pejorative term used by a new breed of neo - Nazi to demean and discredit anybody who questions the diktat of big government which these people, who falsely call themseles liberals, would impose on everybody, removing from us the basic liberal rights to think for ourselves and hold our own opinions.
As expected the suppoters of that all - American boy Barack Hussein Obama are yelling 'conspiracy theorist' as anybody who questions the very dodgy evidence of the death of Osama bin Laden in a raid carried out by US Navy SEALS. A comment on the linked article puts the whole conspiracy theorist nonesense into perspective.
"The conspiracy theorist pejorative should only be used against those who have irrational beliefs which are not backed up by any form of
Conspiracy theory is all about a lot of little details that are presented en masse to try to imply some sort of dirty dealing going on. When one is overturned a whole lot of other little unrelated details are thrown up in response. There is no reasoning with such people, they want to believe that massive governments are up to something and they alone have the wherewithal to see through them.
What is not a conspiracy theory is the question of Obama's elegibility. In fact the real conspiracy theorists there are those who call the sceptics 'conspiracy theorists' and birthers. Barack Husein Obama is on record as claiming he was born a British Colonial citizen by virtue of his father having been born in the colony of British East Africa (now Kenya and parts of Tanzania). Many peope who are not nutter or tinfoil hat wearers but number among them several lawyers with a wealth of experience of U.S. Consitutional law have shown this alone means there is a case to answer.
It is the supporters of Obama who have tried to obfuscate the issue by claiming the whole case rests on a spurious case that Obama was not born in the USA.
The sceptics must keep digging until answers are provided because those who persist in hising behind legal technicalities and photoshopped documents obviously must have something very significant to hide.

Age Timebomb: Britins Need To Save Ł16,700 a year MORE To Live Comfortable In Retirement
The country faces a staggering Ł9 trillion shortfall in the personal pension savings likely to be required to support the next generation after they stop work, according to a report from the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII).
"Currently, many pre-retirees have little savings and carry the burden of significant debts just at a time when their incomes are about to fall," the reports comments
A spokesman for the CII added: "A lot of people are going to have their assets depleted by parents' long-term care costs or their own."
The report says the average care home costs Ł26,000 per year and the average stay is two years, although a significant proportion of people stay for more than four.
Those figures will rocket as people continue to live longer. The proportion of very old people will grow the fastest, says the report, with the number of people over 90 expected to nearly treble over the next 20 years.
The Daily Striirer has reported many times on the age time bomb and the futility of research by medical scientists who claim great triumphs in extending the lifespan but overlook the consequences caused by achieving that while not managing to greatly extend a level of health that permits people to earn a living while politicians eagerly pursue policies that destroy jobs instead of creating them.
Prostitute Claims One Man Has Obtained Three Gagging Orders
The controversy over the legal peculiarity that enebles the righ and powerful to escape criticism for their unacceptable behaviour by obtaining 'super - injunctions, court orders that not only prevent publication of certain stories and allegation but prevent the media reporting that the gagging order even exists.
Helen Wood, a prostitute who when she tried to reveal she had slept with a married actor whose success is built on his wholesome, family man image became the subject of one of these orders found her name was made public while the married actor remains anonymous, said: Theres one person in particular that I know has three injunctions going on ... involving three different women. His wifes just had a baby.
Talking to broadcaster Victoria Derbyshires who hosts a current affairs show on BBC Radio 5 Live, Ms. Woods said: Obviously I cant go in to which profession he does. Why on earth a judge with that amount of authority would grant something as barbaric as that when [ a man ] they have seen straight in front of them than on three occasions has been unfaithful and committed adultery?
The prostitute, who has named England footballer Wayne Rooney as one of her other clients, claimed to have been learned of 'three - injunction man' from a contact in the media.
The actor Ms. Woods tried to expose obtained a privacy injunction after cheating on his wife with Miss Wood has found it increasingly difficult to keep his name a secret after she told a newspaper that he had paid her Ł195 for sex.
Miss Wood said: The same with the actor. He tries to come across with this persona as if hes some fantastic family man. I dont think a fantastic family man sleeps with escorts.

Free Schools, The Stake Through The Heart Of The Collectivist Vampire. by Xavier Connolly
Last night saw the launch of Katharine Birbalsinghs free school in Lambeth, South London. Katherine as you may know, was the teacher sacked by her employers, a local education authority, for speaking out against the politicisation of education. She has since written a bok on the 'progresive agenda' promoted by the state education system, the elevation of education in non subjects like civil rights, gender awareness studies, racial awareness training and multicultural awareness training over traditional subjects like mathematics, language, history and geography.
Many local parents in South London, where the borough coucil is run by a cabal of the most ideologically driven politucal oligarchs ever to get elected very intereswted in Ms. Birbalsinghs venture because at the moment parent have only two options two options when children turn eleven: they can either spend five years in the Maoist indoctrination camp that is a council managed state school or you consign parents can plunge themselves into a life of poverty and debt slavery in order to pay forfor one of the many excellent local private schools.

Five Gallons Of Cheeseburger With Fries Please
by Xavier Connolly
After all those health warnings from finger wagging scientists in the pay of Nanny State we are now told junk food is not only good for us but for the planet too.. One of Britain's biggest green petrol companies has revealed is now reprocessing not just used fat from commercial fryers but chips, burgers pies and pasties, cheese and anything lardy to make fuel for cars and commercial vehicles at a Ł50m biofuel plant somewhere in Lincolnshire.
Greenergy, which claims it supplies a fifth of the UK's petrol and diesel, (that figure seems very dubious to me) has said production has begun on a process which makes motor fuels from food waste.
The company reports only food that can't be sold, because the products are mis-shapen, past their sell by date or overcooked, is used. The best ingredients are pies, pasties and crisps for their high fat content but other foodstuffs range from taramasalata to oil from fried fish containing breadcrumbs.
Greenergy in partnership with Brocklesby, a specialist in recycling edible oils that would otherwise go to landfill or compost is now converting such waste for biofuel and.
The fuel company initially invested Ł50m in the biodiesel production facility at Immingham on the Humber estuary to process used cooking oils, which are more complicated to process than "new" oils such as rapeseed.
It already processes more than 20m litres a month of used cooking oil supplied from a range of food producers. Extracting oil from foodstuffs however is a new process. The oils and fats are removed from the food through a system developed by Brocklesby and are then further purified by Greenergy. The finished biodiesel is then blended into the conventional diesel that Greenergy supplies to petrol stations nationally.
Any food solids that remain after processing are currently dried and composted or used to produce energy through anaerobic digestion.
Andrew Owens, chief executive of Greenergy, said: "The quantities of biodiesel that we're currently producing from solid food waste are small, but we're expecting to scale up so that this soon becomes a significant proportion of our biodiesel.
This kind of thing sounds great and makes god copy for newspapers and content for television news programmes. What is never mentioned of course is the huge amount of energy used in extracting and refining the fats and then turning them into biodiesel. My reading on this topic suggests that all critical analysis that is more objective than the maker's press releases and PR material concludes the contribution of such gimmicky products towards solving the world's energy shortfall is negative. We actually have to expend more energy on making the stuff than we get from using it commercially.
Still the gullibility of politicians and the unconscious generosity of taxpayers probably makes it a viable commercial proposition.

Head Teacher Suspended After Staff Strike Over Pupil's Behaviour
When most members of your Daily Stirrer team were at school if we behaved like little shits we'd most likely get a clip from the teacher. Some would fling a scrap of chalk or the board duster, usually a little bean bag type thing with deadly accuracy to make sure they had our full attention. And even at our most disruptive we were relitavely well behaved. Little angels in fact compared to todays mollycoddled, indulged and over protected children.
Under the politically correct regime that runs our schools now pupils are so out of control that staff at one school, Darwen Vale High in Darwen, Lancashire, staged a one day strike last month to express their anger at the way management and head teacher Hilary Torpey interpret policy so that the school always sides with pupils in any matter involving discipline. Around 70 teachers went on strike on April 7, picketing the school gates with placards.
Teachers were said they lacked of backing from Mrs Torpey and school management when they confronted unruly children. Well we wouldn't want the little darlings to feel oppressed or victimised would we?
School governors have now suspended the head teacher, saying "issues" needed to be investigated. The only issue that needs to be investigated is how the wankers who hold management jobs in the education department were ever employed in positions of responsibility in the first place.
A statement issued by Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council on behalf of the chair of governors Don Heatlie-Jackson, said: "A number of issues have been brought to my attention as the chairman of the school's governing body. Brought to his attention? Teachers and dissatisfied parents have been beating the knob around the head with them for a long time only to be fobbed of with weasel words by this bureaucract, this placeman, this self aggrandising, patronising, self serving fool.
Like a cornered rat desperately looking for an escape route management has taken refuge in bureaucratic cliches. The statement says a full and proper investigation, a without prejudice decision has been taken to suspend the head teacher of Darwen Vale.It would therefore be inappropriate to discuss this matter further." What that means of course is the head has been gagged and knows full well any attempt to tell her side of the story will result in her finding herself on the dole. Where she will be joined by most of the pupils turned out by the politically correct 'Progressive Liberal' regime of the education committee's chair and his or her 'on message' cronies.
The unusual move teachers have gone on strike over pay and conditions before but rarely over school discipline came after Education Secretary Michael Gove signalled a new crackdown on discipline in the classroom. The trouble is in areas run by politically correct, leftie Labour councils there is no such thing as discipline in the classroom. Pupils nip outside for a smoke when they feel like it, talk over the teach, make and receerive calls on mobile phones, spent their time texting friends or listen to their MP3 players.
Simon Jones, from the National Union of Teachers, said: "Union members will co-operate fully with the thorough investigation that must now be undertaken into the allegations that have been made.
"Since members took strike action on April 7 2011, intense negotiations have been taking place with senior local authority officers and the chair of governors and considerable progress has been made towards agreeing strategies that, if properly implemented, should lead to the resolution of this unfortunate dispute.
"We remain committed to securing a constructive outcome for our members and the school and look forward to being able to make this work with the interim management team."
More weasel words, more bureaucratic cliches. What happened to men with balls?
Bin Laden: Al Qaeda Vows Revenge On The West - Sky News
by Ed Butt
From Sky News:
Interesting - and unorthodox - take on the past week by Rush Limbaugh, the high-profile Right-wing "shock jock" and host of the highest-rated talk show on American radio.
He accused the New York Times of exaggerating the importance of bin Laden - in an attempt to make Obama look good for having killed him.
My friends, this is hilarious. When Obama couldnt find Osama, even though he promised he would, we were told Osama was of no consequence whatsoever.
This regime, they cannot keep their lies straight. They cant keep their story straight.
We were told for the last three or four years, Hey, yknow, dialysis. The guys a shell of his former self. Hes not even operationally in control. Weve heard this over and over again from this bunch.
Now, the New York Times, in an effort to build up the smallest guy in the Situation Room, Barack Obama, in an effort to build him up, Guess what, folks. Osama bin Laden has been at the helm this whole time.
Yes, bin Laden has to be built up, has to be amplified, has to be blown up, has to be made the Big Kahuna is order to make it seem like Obama has really pulled off a major coup here.
The Daily Stirrer's Ed Butt comments:
So far nobody in mainstream media has addressed the very credible rumours that Osama was dead years ago.
But let's put him in perspective. Apart from 9/11 which he claimed to have masterminded although there is no hard evidence that he did anything more than incite hatred of the west, he was a failure, an incompetent cock up artist.
It was theDubya administration and the U.S. Security services that built himn into a demon. And once a demo has been created, it cannot simply be killed as anyone familiar with middle eastern mythology would know.
Osama may have been shot or he may have died of kidney failure but his demon will live on.

SNP Scores Historic Win
Election Details from BBC News
The local council elections in England produced the expected backlash against the Liberal Democrats with the party suffering heavy losses to Labour mainly in the northern industrial cities.
Labour, ironically coul turn out to be the big losers of the night however. As results for the Scottisjh Assembly election came in seat after seat previously held by Labour crashed to the SNP.
At the time of writing the nationalists were well in front and on course for an overtall majority in the Scottish Parliament for the first time.
If this happens the SNP will push for full independence from the United Kingdom. This would mean Scotland would relinquish its seats in the Westminster Parliament.
As Scotland is, for hiostoric reasons, over represented in Westminster, the loss of it's MPs, the overwhelming majority of whom are Labour would make it very difficult for Labour ever to govern the disUnited Kingdom again.
David Cameron, though a long way short of being a good Prime Minister is an asture enough politician to understand this.
It will be interesting to see how the independence issue plays out.

Bin Laden Death Pics: Pressure Grows On Obama

Bin Laden Death Pics: Pressure Grows On Obama
DAily Telegraph Live blogging: Latest ...
Lindsey Graham, a US senator, has waded into the row over Obama's refusual to release graphic photos of bin Laden's body. He said the decision was a mistake that would prolong rumour mongering that bin Laden was still alive.
The whole purpose of sending our soldiers into the compound, rather than an aerial bombardment, was to obtain indisputable proof of bin Laden's death. I know bin Laden is dead. But the best way to protect and defend our interests overseas is to prove that fact to the rest of the world.
The raid on the compound in Pakistan in which the world's most wanted man, Osama bin Laden was killed is rapidly turning into a public relations disaster for US President Barack Obama. As the White House is forced to back off from its initial gung ho reports of bravery by the US President (who tried to give the impression he was somehow directly involved in the action) and the team of Navy SEALS who went into the compound, admitting bin Laden (a) did not die firing an AK47 at the American commandos, (b) did not try to use his wife as a human shield and (c) the American government does not have the video footage of the bizarrely misguided 'burial at sea' they claimed to have.
As with the long running and still ongoing controversy over his elegibility to serve as President of the United States (not because of where he may or may not have been born but because his father was never a U.S. citizen nor even a resident but only there on a student visa,) Obama has once again proved himself the conspiracy theorists best friend by showing he expects the whole world to believe every droplet of verbal diarreah that drops from his lips.
Now we have Arab television news services producing eye witnesses (including one of bin Laden's daughters) who tell a very different story. It is reported, and we recommend you treat these reports with as much scepticism as we treated the initial ripping yarn from the White House
fantasy fiction press office, that Osama was led out of the building and killed in a gangland style execution either before or after he had been bundled into one of the helicopters used in the raid.
Other witnesses claim no shots were fired within the compound.
The Daily Stirrer sticks with its view that Osama bin Laden has been dead since 2007.
Who, if anyone was killed by the US Navy SEALS dispatched by President Barack Hussein Obama to stage the publicity coup he hoped would save his Presidency, we will probably never know. Another thing we do know however is the report that stock markets and the value of the US$ had soared on the news. The dollar hardly moved and a slight rise in the Dow Jones index was quickly reversed as realisation sunk in that Osama bin Laden was not the leader of the Taliban and was no longer active in Al Qaeda and his death will not bring to an end the Afghan war or lead to quick settlements of the conflicts in Libya, Syria, Yemen and elsewhere in the middle east.
The lesson here is never trust anybody in a position of authority and never believe anything you read in mainstream media.

Latest Polls Suggest Britain Will Reject AV
by Ed Butt
Vitriolic campaigning for the referendum on changing the voting system has opened up a rift between the centre-right Conservative party and their smaller partners in the coalition government, the Liberal Democrats just one year after they joined forces in an unlikely political marriage.
Opinion polls indicate a landslide win for the campaign led by Prime Minister David Cameron to keep Britain's long-standing first past the post system, in which the candidate with the most votes wins.
This will not lead to the fall of the coalition as the Conservatives know an early general election would lead to the return of Labour as a minority government, propped up by an unlikely coalition of Scottish and Welsh nationalists, Irish Republicans and a handful of untra left nutters from the political fringe. The Liberal Democrats who have so far taken the brunt of public anger at the failure of the government to stand up to the dictaors of Brussels, the cuts in public spending necessitated by the financial mess Labour's incompetent economic team left behind and rising prices which are a global problem and beyond the control of one party, would be reduced to an irrelevance.

UK House Prices Fall In April
by Xavier Connolly
The average home lost 0.2pc of its value during the month, leaving it costing Ł165,609, according to the Nationwide Building Society.
The fall follows two consecutive months during which prices have risen, although property values have dropped in three of the previous six months, while they have increased during three of them, showing the current unsettled state of the market.
With Ian fully ovccupied trying desperately to link and categorise our posts because The Daily Stirrer has become far more successful than any of us ever imagined, and John de Roe on his retirement leave, all we can say on this is "We told you so."
White House Backtracks On How Bin Laden Died
by Ed Butt
Initial claims that the al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden had died while firing an automatic weapon at commandos were withdrawn, with President Barack Obamas spokesman admitting he was unarmed. Another claim that bin Laden was 'a coward to the end' and a dramatic description of him using a woman alleged to be his his wife as a human shield and forcing her to sacrifice her life also proved to be false. One of Osama bin Laden's wives was in the compound but in a different room and was wounded but still alive when she was taken into custody with several of the terrorists children.
At first the claim was changed to an anonymous woman throwing herself in front of the terrorist to shield him but then the human shield story was dropped altogether.
In an embarrassing climb-down, Barack Obamas press secretary, Jay Carney, admitted that the previous version of events which came mostly from the chief US counter-terrorism adviser, John Brennan had been put out with great haste. Great haste maybe but we have to wonder about the competence or hionesty of people who, even in the heat of the moment could concoct such a wildly inaccurate story.
The about-turn left the US open to accusations of a cover-up and led to calls for video footage of the attack, allegely watched live in the White House bu Barack Husseing Obama and his cohorts as they sipped chardonnay and passed around trays of nibbles (guess which bit we made up to make the President and his stuipd sidekicks look bad) Also in response to calls for the video to be released a claim that the US military had footage of the burial at sea of Bin Laden's body were quietly withdrawn.
Not surprising really. The Daily Stirrer reported yesterday Osama Bin Ladenm has been dead since 2007.

How Obamanomics Triggered The Arab Spring

And now a clue as to why the Obama Adminitration felt they had to concoct this ridiculous farce or ...How the Federal Exchange triggered the Arab Spring uprisings in two easy graphs
By Andrew Lilico, Daily Terlegraph 04 May 2011
It is possible to join the dots between the Feds second phase of quantitative easing and the revolutions in the Middle East.
One curious aspect of recent events in the Middle East and North Africa is how unwilling most commentators have been to join the dots between the Federal Reserves second phase of quantitative easing and these revolutions. Im less queasy. Of course, all revolutions have many causes, and I dont mean to belittle the achievements of brave non-violent protesters, desperate self-immolators, or saloon-car rifle-wielders. But, as a trigger and driver of these events, the Fed seems very clearly to have achieved more in the Arab world in six months than the Pentagon achieved in decades.

Obama Elegibility? You Think It's All Over?
When Barack Obama, vain and arrogant to the end finally produced something he claimed was his long form birth certificate you would think from his posturing that he was the subjec6t of some monstrous imposition.
Sadly the little piece of paper he produced was such a blatant forgery I did not even have to put my scren in hi - res mode to see where the pdf had been crudely pasted together from bits cut from other documents.
A .pdf for those who do not know, is not a scan as a .jpg format file is, but a digital reconstruction of data that could come from one or several sources.
Anyway, even the forgery is incompetent and leaves clearly visible the damning evidence Obama has spent two years and millions of dolars trying to hide.
Follow my link to Obama Birth Cert, scoll down to the facsimilie of the document which is the image that was posted on The White House web site, and take a good long look in the bottom left hand corner.
If your screen is not sharp enough to see clearly, even when the image is enlarged, the printed text on the official form reads:
21: Evidence of delayed filing.
And the typed text which you should see clearly says:
Place of birth, Kenya - per Grandmother. The exact meaning of this is clarified by the fact that the signature of the person registering the birth is Madeline Payne Dunham.
If the Birthers are smart they've got him by the bollocks.

Now, it seems the news and photographs of his passing were held back by the US administration for an occasion more to their liking.
And here, for people with a strong stomach are the three pictures the OBL death photo are photoshopped from. Left an anonymouse dead person of middle eastern origin, centre the last photo taken of OBL when we know he was alive and right the composite of the two with the top half being the anonymous dead guy and the bottom half taken from the image of the real Osama.
As the old saying goes Truth is the first casualty of war. Even a phoney war on terror it seems.
American Lawyer Attacked By Obama Supporters For Querying "Father's Race: African" On The Birth Certificate.
The story does not matter. It is just another stereotypical illustration of the hate driven madhouse the United States of America has become.
What the Daily Stirrer wants to get across is the background information necessary to make a value judgement on this issue.
Even now, in these politically correct times there is no such race as African. And Obama Snr's birthplace was not Kenya which did not exist as a legal or political entity until 1962, but British East Africa. Obie Snr. however would have given his race as Luo to distinguish him from the Kikiyu, Meru, Embu, Masai and other tribes in the colony. It would not have ocurred to him to say African.
Some other races found on the African continent, Moors, Tuareg, Bedouin, Nubian, Xosha, Matabele, Mandingo, Somali, Hutu, Tutsi, Ubangi, Ubetcha (sorry, I made that one up,) Egyptian, Arab and Watusi. There are many many more. A tribe or nation is a race of people as Celts, Scots, Finn, Norr, Rus Slav, Goth and the other old ethnicities of Europe demonstrate. All have very different cultures and many different physical attributes.
It is not even correct to give "African negro" as the catch all race because there are two distinct racial types among the people of Sub Saharan Africa, broad skulled like the Yoruba of Nigeria, Ghana and west Africa and narrow skulled like Barry and the Masai and Tswana.
Then of course there are The San, one of the last hunter - gatherer peoples in the world. There are only about 50,000 San left now and they are genetically, cuturally and ethnically quite different from any other tribe anywhere in the world.
So questioning these apparently misplaced words is not trivial nit picking. Lift one up and look underneath and you peer into the tribal history and sociology of a continent.
And African societies are very tribal.

Washington is pushing Kiev to military solution of Donbass conflict
France Moves to Make âConspiracy Theoriesâ Illegal by Government Decree
The US is inciting Kiev to end the crisis in eastern Ukraine by force, said the Russian foreign minister citing US support of the recent Ukrainian law on the special self-governing status of Donbass, which Moscow says undermines the Minsk-2 deal.
Political elites and super-bureaucrats must be very worried. New start up political parties, dismissed as populist byt in reality listening to the concerns of voters are making inroads into the political status quo. New media investigative journalists and op-ed writers are challenging the official propaganda (and gaining an ever bigger audience). Itâs becoming harder to control consensus reality.

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

Prominent Oncologists says Expensive Cancer Thrapies Are About Profit Not Cures
Tullio Simoncini (1951) is a doctor based in Rome who specialises in oncology, diabetology and in metabolic disorders (cancer research and treatments to us laymen). Dr. Simoncini has a track record for opposing the type of intellectual conformity demanded by the academic community and enforced by the media, which, he says, is often based on suppositions without foundation or worse, on lies and falsities.
The âInternet of Thingsâ 2025: Your life controlled by the smart grid
Among the tasks we set ourselves at The Daily Stirrer (which is put together by volunteer contributors and funded out of the site owner's pockey) is to keep enlightened people aware of what the super wealthy and corporate elites have planned for we the people.

Leading Academic Defends Role Of Universities As An Alternative To Going On The Dole
Britain's leading university official has dismissed the idea that going to university is all about getting a well-paid job.

Are Publishers Finally Standing Up To Amazon bullies
The death of independent bookshops has caused a lot of controversy over the past decade as first the entry of supermarkets and their limited ranges of heavily yped best sellers, and next the rise of online sales which focused attention on the authors that were promoted on television and print media steered book buyers away from the kind of purchases made on the strength of a catchy title and attention grabbing blurb. These sales were the the bread and butter of the independent booksellers and the way new ...
Bulgaria Stands Up To EU Over Full Ban On GM Crops
While cowardly British and French leaders kowtow to the forces of darkess pushing the federal Europe agenda and the corporations trying to control the EU institutions, it is left to the smaller, less powerful states that are more in touch with their national culture and sense of community to assert their independence is the face of corporatism and bureaucratic bullying. In the latest "up yours" gesture to the unelected bureaucrats of Brussels, Bulgaria has refused categorically to legalize the cultivation of GMO Maize in Europe.
U2 Celeb Bono partners with Monsanto, G8, to biowreck African farms with GMOs
Professional do - gooder and former rock star Bono (full name Pro - Bono because everything he does is for Bono) is very fond of strutting around the world proclaiming his love for Africa.

Emperor Obama To Destroy American Economy With One Executive Order
President and Emperor Barack Obama is moving forward with a central component of his climate-change agenda, as the Environmental Protection Agency announced Monday that carbon emissions must be reduced by 30 percent at fossil-fuel-burning power plants by 2030 to fend off the devastating effects of a changing climate.
The plan is actually set to take effect next year, but EPA administrator Gina McCarthy says the administration has a âmoral obligation to act.â

Psychopaths in Charge â Maybe Theyâre Not Human
You have probably encountered websites that talk about a race of repitillian shapeshifting superbeings who have ruled the world for thosands of years and even now are manipulating us towards global government and the enslavement of the masses.

More On Those Links Between Corrupt Government And Pfizer Monoplists

The Best foods for protien are not those you have been told.
Another group of scientists proved to be crooks and liars interested more in promoiting the profits or corporations that provide their funding? Well that's the way it looks as evidence mounts that intensively farmed produce, particularly meat and dairy goods are not as rich in nutrients as when our ancestors ate meat and milk or cheese from naturally grazed cattle or eggs from free range hens.
Another Pompous, Arrogant Bigot Slags Off Homeopathy. What Do They Hope To Gain
The argument about homeopathy is raging again. An article in a leading newspapers says oponents of homeopathic medicine must never tire of explaining that it doesn't work.

Long Term Use of Paracetmol Can Injure or Kill
More news from the great healthcare scam and it isn't good. Independent research (i.e. not funded by people who profit from your doctor making you addicted to painkillers) shows that long term use of high doseage parcetamol can damage your liver more than heavy drinking. makes one wonder how much of the current 'liver disease epidemic' is due to prescription drugs rather than booze.
Privatization of Water as an Owned Commodity Rather Than a Universal Human Right
Corporate powers and the United Nations are planning on privatising water resources including rainfall, yes you did read that right, privatising the rain. The CEO of food processing bastards Nestlé spoke of the plan last year when he said companies like his had a right to make money from sellling OUR water, now those Stalinisdt shits at the United Nations and The World Bank are planning to steal the stuff life depends on.
Measles Witch Hunt - Propaganda War Against Parents Who Refuse Vaccine
A witch hunt against parents who decline to have their children vaccinated. Who would think such fascist tactics could be used by democratically elected governments in the twenty first century. Well elected (after a fashion) oiur governments may be, but they are not democratic. It is the bankers and corporate entities who hold the real power. And the pharmaceutical companies who make vaccines are among the most anti social of them.

Spain's Government Collapses: This Is The End Of The Euro
The Spanish government looks set to collapse in the next few weeks as the Ciudadanos party has broken ranks and thrown in its lot with the opposition group, PSOE (socialist) and Podemos in a non-confidence vote against PM Rajoy. After months of strife following a vote by citizens of Catalona, to secede from the nation, this can only mean Spain has taken a giant step towards disintegration.
Telford MP Says Police Ignored Child Sex Abuse Complaints by Parents
Telford MP Lucy Allan has taken police to task for ignoring child sexual exploitation by Muslim grooming gangs, with abusers only having to say they did not know the victimâs age to escape justice. Despite the age of consent in the U K being 16, Muslim men suspected of abusing under age children were able to get the police off their backs by claiming the victims consented and that they did not know they were underage.
Tommy Robinson Arrested for Live Reporting Grooming Gang Trial
Despite public inquiries having shown that police, social services departments, local government officials and even politicians in national government lied in their efforts to cover up the sexual abuse crimes perpetrated by Muslim men on vulnerable white girls in Rotherham, the authorities are STILL trying to prevent citizens telling the truth about what has happened and is still happening in Rotherham.
The Globalist Pravda Network
Fake News is a phrase that is never far from the lips or fingertips of journalists and television pundits who are supposed to keep us informed about what is happening in the world. But how reliable are those who have appointed themselves the guardians of journalistic integrity. Not very reliable it seems, if The Guardian, a highbrow UK newspaper is anything to go by.
US Government Plans To Patrol Cities With AI Drones
On May 10, the US Department of Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) unveiled a project with the unweildy title 'Urban Reconnaissance through Supervised Autonomy (URSA) program,' which lays out its policy on reconnaissance, surveillance, and target acquisition within urban environments.
Drug Companies Want To Use The State To Shut Down The Competition
Blue jeans have more in common with drugs than you might think. In 17th and 18th century France cheap cotton clothing was threatening the rich woolen, linen, and silk manufacturers, so they persuaded the government to ban it. Government agents began spying on anyone who dared to wear the new fabric. Thousands of violators of the ban were rounded up and either sent to prison or to ships as galley slaves, which was a death sentence.
Sweden Designates Sex Without Formally Expressed Consent as Rape

May 22, 2018: With a spate of fatal and near fatal crashes raising doubts about the safety of the power storage system in Tesla sports models, the corporate stock exchange valuation taking hit after hit and Elon Muskâs promises looking more and more unrealistic as the companyâs operating deficit gets bigger and bigger, today has brought another shock for fanboys of Tesla and electric vehicles in general.
Why a Bar Can Boot Trump Supporters, But a Bakery Cannot Deny Gay Customers
The New York Post reports that a US Federal Judge has ruled that a bar was well within its right to kick out Trump supporters.

German Solar Energy Industry Crashes As Government Ends Subsidy
We are learning from German business news websites that Germanyâs solar industry has crashed and burned after the government drastically cut its subsidies. Piere Gosselin, writing in No Tricks Zone reports:
Long before Google acquired Internet of Things company Nest, its co-founder Matt Rogers was saying he and his team had big dreams. Nest seem to have convinced themselves that building fridges, washing machines, thermostats and doorbells that couls spy on their owners might work the same trick for them as spying through our computers did for Microsoft, Google and Facebook ...
OPCW Investigators - "No Evidence" Of Chemical Weapons At Syrian Facilities Bombed By US
War and Politics Behind Mass Displacement in Africa, Not Climate Change â UCL
The independent inspectors commissioned by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) will probably take several months to publish their final report on the alleged gas attack in Douma (an attack for which journalists and other independent parties have failed to find evidence),
A report from a new study conducted by University College Londonâs may cause a stir in the climate scaremongering industry. The report challenges the academic establishment's standard narrative of mass displacement in Africa being principally responsible for the creation of refugees in Africa and casts doubt on a number of other assumptions about global problems.

War On Free Speech Killing Comedy?
German comedian Sophie Passmann has become probably the first person to have a tweet deleted for being funny under Germanyâs new online hate speech law, which is one of the strictest in Europee, although it does not prohibit Muslim Imans from calling on their followers to kill all infidels. Fraulien Passman commented: âThere shouldnât be a law against bad jokes, because that would mean that half the comedians in Germany wouldnât be allowed on stage.â
British Democracy is Dysfunctional
A significant proportion of Labour MPs are seeking to cause the party to do badly in local elections, with the aim of damaging their leader. To that end they have attacked Jeremy Corbyn relentlessly in parliament and in the entirely neo-liberal owned corporate media, over the Skripal case, over Syria, and over crazy allegations of anti-semitism.
Have They Learned Nothing From Iraq?
After the debacles of Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya, not to mention the unfinished business in Yemen, one might hope the political establishments and the mainstream media might have learned something about military interventions to effect regime change in third world nations which are culturally millions of light years away from the liberal democracies.
Germany, Italy Refuse To Join Deep State's Syria Regime Change Coalition
As madness grips most members of NATO, with our own British Prime Minister Theresa May trying to out - Trump Trump in her displays of gung ho egomania, two nations at least are taking a more rational view.

Sweden's Rebels Against Cashless Society Push: "We Have No Weapon Fight Back...If Putin Invades"
This omnibus page is about documenting the global elite's "War On Cash" (yes that is a bit over dramatic and click - baity, but we have to compete for attention,) which is not about making life better for the masses as we are told it is, but about enabling government agencies to increase their ability to extend surveillance of all our activities. One of the topic we have previously looked at several times is the rapid rise of Sweden's cashless society, where a natuarally conformist mindset among the people has made them all too ready to accept that cashless was the progressive, liberal way forward and cooperate with the authoritarian left wing government's demands for ever greater control over people's money and private lives.
Google Employees Rebel Against Company's Links With Pentagon, CIA

We donât yet know who poisoned Skripal, UK has not proved itâs Moscow â German official
The UK has not yet managed to prove that Russia is the guilty party in the Skripal poisoning case, and despite gung ho (but completely unsubstantiated,) accusations from Prime Minister Teresa May and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson. Gernot Erler, the German governmentâs policy coordinator for Russia, said that London needed to produce evidence of Moscowâs involvement rather than simply making accusations,

David Davis struggles through interview with a sick bucket by his side
The Datapocalypse: Why Facebook's crisis is a turning point for privacy
Brexit Secretary David Davis, appearing on the Andrew Marr Show this morning requested a sick bucket be placed next to him in case he threw live on air. The Brexit Secretary, who was suffering from a stomach bug, then struggled through the interview which focused on progress made towards a transition deal for the UKâs leaving the EU.
The strangest thing about the tidal wave of public revulsion about violations of privacy that have hit Facebook this week in the wake of revelations throughout this month of improper commercial exploitation of users data is the story of how an academic built an app to harvest the private data of people who took his 'personality test', and then sold his database to a public relations consultancty should have surprised nobody.
Police Forces Taking Days to Respond to 999 Calls âŚ While Hate Crime Declared a Priority
Following the declaration earlier this year by the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, that in future Londonâs Metropolitan Police Force would not investigate minor crime but would in future be proritizing the prosecution of those deemed to have committed âhate crimesâ, other police forces in Britain are following suit and declaring that tackling so-called hate crime a âpriorityâ.
Liberalâ witch-finders hunt for heretics in modern Britain
The activities of those we call the 'illiberal liberals' are well documented in Daily Stirrer and Greenteeth pages because it is quite shocking to observe how authoritarian liberalism and left wing ideologies have become, whereas we expect an authoritarian approach from the right ("Ve haff vays of making you konform"), but in fact the war on free speech is coming from both sides of the political spectrum.

When a report in UK weekend newspaper The Sunday Mirror, on 11 March, revealed the shocking abuse experienced by hundreds of of young and often vulnerable women and girls in Telford, Shropshire, it was not unreasonable to expect the #MeToo feminists to express outrage at this case of the most serious sexual crimes committed on such a lage scale while the authorities looked the other way.
May 'under incredible pressureâ from colleagues to blame Russia in ex-spy poisoning
In a scathing tirade, British Prime Minister Theresa May came as close as possible to blaming Russia for the murder of former double agent Sergei Skripal and the poisoning of the spy's daughter Yulia as possible without actually declaring war. The astounding attack is believed to have been a result of intense pressure put on her by members of her government and the political opposition eager to find a scapegoat and mainstream media hungry for sensation.

Jailed by UK Gov't For Speaking Their Minds
We Stirrers are really starting to worry that Britain and the USA are going in the same direction as the EU nations that signed up to German dominance by joining the single currency. It's as disheartening as it is embarrassing at this point. The establishment is trying to silence dissent and make diversity of opinion a crime. This suppression of individual freedom and our hard won civil rights has come to the point it just feels like something is about to break. They're clearly scared of something.
Artificial Intelligence, should we start questioning it

This that will change the face of the humanity, and should we continue to go in that direction. Is there another way.
Male Privilege Is A Myth (video)
The pushback against politically correct thinking, identity politcs and the hatred from feminists for all things male is probably overdue but it is coming. After the #MeToo campaign tried to return our view of justice to the equivalent of a medieval witch hunt by making accusation of a man by a woman sufficient evidence on which to convict, while the racists of black Lives Matter tried to bully lawmakers into accepting that requiring black and brown people to obey the law is racist, the populist movements in the USA and Europe. which have put Trump in The White House, taken Britain out of the EU and put anti -establishment governments in power in Poland and Italy continue to gain strength.

Swedish PM Admits Immigration, Crime âChallengesâ â Denies âNo Go Zonesâ
Unsubstantiated allegations of Russian interference in the Brexit referendum have kept the Euronazi 'left' and certain sections of mainstream media in a state of near hysteria since the result, a shock win for the Leave campaign, was announced in june 2016. Likewise, all the screeching about Trump collaborating with Vladimir Putin to steal the US presidency froim warmongering crook Hillary Clinton, is still going on even though no solid evidence has been presented to support the claims in either case.
Poisoned Russian Spy Linked To Christopher Steele

Italy Election Truth: Pro - EU Center-Left Anihilated
Yesterday, when preliminary results from the Italian election were showing the establishment had suffered a crushing defeat, Britains most prolific broadcaster of "Fake News" were still pretending the centre - left coalition were going to emerge as the largest grouping.

Answered by Mark Simon Hockey, PPE, MA(Oxon)1979. Medicine, MB.ChB (Bristol) 1987
The answer to this question was given to Cameron when he tried to negotiate changes prior to the Referendum .

Liam Fox Savages Labourâs âBetrayalâ Brexit Plan with UK in EU Customs Union
We've said it before and its certain all of us will say it again. If you lumped the whole of the parliamentary Labour Party together, they would just about equal the intellect of a retarded five year old suet pudding.

Big Brands, Big Meetings, Big Summits, but Modern Slavery Still Problem for UK
It's rather ironic that while British lefties and liberals agonise over the use of several kinds of slave labour in the clothing and electronics sweatshops of South-east Asia and Africa, their American counterparts are still grizzling over a form of slavery that was abolished in their country 150 years ago, but happy (and some seem ecstatic but maybe that's the drugs,) to walk around wearing their Adidas or Nike trainers, clothes from Primark or H&M, or their Apple iPhones or iPads, or Samsung Galaxies.

'Computers Have No Feelings': Can AI Really Replace Humans?
As long as humans develop technologies, we'll continue worrying about what our creations might do to us, such as making us slaves to machines.

Donât forget the human factor in AI and Machine Learning
We have always been cynical about the hyperbolic claims of the science academe and the Silicon Valley cunts club about how Artificial Intelligence and digital technologies will soon replace humans as the dominant force on the planet.

Has Google Become A Major Threat To Democracy In America?
About 10 years ago, Tim Wu, the Columbia Law professor who coined the term network neutrality, made this prescient comment: "To love Google, you have to be a little bit of a monarchist, you have to have faith in the way people traditionally felt about the king." Wu was right. And now, Google has established a pattern of lobbying and threatening to acquire power. It has reached a dangerous point common to many monarchs: The moment where it no longer wants to allow dissent.

Joe Rogan - Will Artificial Intelligence Destroy Humankind?
I worked in the Information Technology field from the 1960s to 2003, the first program I wrote was loaded to a mainframe from punched paper tape, and throughout that time, we were always 'just around the corner' from having machines that could think like humans only better.

The irony of the US 'liberals' outrage over Donald Trump's use of executive orders to get his legislation through is delicious [...] when we see democrats, mainstream media figures and celebrity atention seekers screaming about Trump's undemocratic use of executive order the first thing we think of is how the same people heaped praise on Obama when he paved the way for this despotic abuse of democracy by using executive orders to get his program through
Genocide Of Ideas
Television the director and former Monty Python Flying Circus member Terry Gilliam said he did not like anything among the recent output from Hollywood.

Van smashes into pedestrians in central Barcelona
Backlash After Swedenâs Army Says Purpose of Military Is to Defend Gay Rights
At least 14 people have been killed and over 110 injured in two separate attacks in the resort city of Barcelona and nearby coastal town of Cambrils.

Maybe Trump Is Not Quite The Evil Bad Guy Media Told You He Is
My blogs The Daily Stirrer and Boggart Abroad have reported the reasons behind Trumpâs decision to end the CIAâs covert Syria program if aiding ISIS and AlQaeda affiliated groups.

Freedom Of Thought And Information: Quotes
If the ruling elites want to establish global control they need to be able to control all information the general population have access to.

Why Is The Scandal Of The Awan Brothers Being Ignored?
You have probably never heard of the Awan brothers, a couple of dodgy foreigners with very strong links to the US Democrat National Committee.

The folly of world view thinkers minimum wage obsession.
In recent years however, minimum wage legislation has become a sacred cow for liberal and left wing politicians. And of course the usual levels of hypocrisy and double standards we have come to expect from those on the left of the political spectrum are in play.

What was a closely guarded secret in diplomatic circles and mainstream media is out of the closet now, even in the USA where criticism if Saudi Arabia is usually off limits.

Father of A.I. Shocks Everyone With His Newest (Scariest) Creation
We are often told that 'scientists' have made some advance in computer technology and soon we will be less intelligent than the machines we created. Strangely, computer scientists were sayingthe same when my first program I was loaded to a LEO computer from punched paper tape just over fifty years ago. and yet we seem to be no nearer creating any software that can be compared to human intelligence, (nerds may argue with that, but nerds are not human.)

The White House claims that the Syrian government is preparing "chemical weapon attacks". This is clearly not the case. Syria is winning the war against the country.

Saudi Arabia Bids For Islamic Globalisation
soon after the suicide bomb at The Manchester Arena, I felt obliged to defriend someone on facebook, whom I have known online for around ten years. So what did this sweet lady, who writes books on medieval witchcraft and calls herself a pagan, do to piss me off? She showed herself to be a hypocrite by posting a whinge about people reacting with anger and 'hate' to this latest atrocity; "I'm all about compassion, I will not stand by and see Muslims victimised because of this." Oh yeah? And what about the dead and injured victimised by a muslim extremist?

The Demise Of Nate Silver's Infallibility And Data-Driven Journalism

So London's Muslim Mayor Sadiq Khan Loves Integration And Tolerance Does He?
Google is not a search engine company, the search engine is just window dressing. Google is a data mining company that steals users' personal information to advertisers. When web users learned of the extent of Google's data gathering (spying) and invading our privacy they started to use ad blockers.
