The Daily Stirrer, August / September 2012 (for breaking news skip to News Feeds)
After our server was hit by hackers for the second time in three months while our webmaster had his eye off the ball because he was struggling with yet another sudden and disheartening drop in traffic due to Google's tweaking of their algorithm to favour their own sites and those site that give Google revenue by either displaying their ads or more significantly buying traffic through the Google adwords product we had to take time to decide if it was worth carrying on.
The Daily Stirrer will continue but on a much smaller scale than previously until Google backs up its lofty words by actually practicing net neutrality and letting sites attract traffic on their merit rather than Google's whim. (Xavier Connolly, 16 July 2012)
Has Everybody Forgotten Obama's War
by Ed Butt
The American military machine has just chalked up the grim statistic of its 2,000th fatality since America troops first surged into Afganistan to defeat "insurgents" whose families had lived in that country for many generations. The invasion was justifed in the aftermath of September 11 by the myth that Afghanistan was a stronghold for Al Qaeda.
Given the amount of money Washington has pumped into this conflict, you would think the sad milestone might have merited some form of comment from the American president, particularly as soon after taking office her declared that Afghanistan would be his war and his victory and later he personally authorised the deployment of an extra 30,000 American combat troops two years ago in a last-ditch effort to beat the Taliban.
By the criteria one might also have expected Mitt Romney, the Republican challenger in November's Presidential election who is seeking to present himself as a safe pair of hands on national security issues, to seize an opportunity and articulate his own plans for the Afghan conflict, were he to win the election.
Such is the widespread unpopularity of the Afghan conflict now among American voters that neither candidate wants to get drawn on an issue which is unlikely to win the votes of any demographic. As a result the Afghan war has become the great non issue, the elephant in the room, that nobody could possibly be unaware of but that everybody is too embarrassed to mention. It is a situation which inspires little confidence in the ultimate fate of the conflict which is far from over.
The presidential candidates might not have any interest in what is going on in Afghanistan, but there are plenty of others who do, such as the Taliban, which is busily positioning itself to make a dramatic comeback once Nato's combat forces are withdrawn (or when they are vulnerable as withdrawal progresses) in two years time. And if that happens, whoever wins November's election will no longer have the luxury of ignoring Afghanistan's fate.
Afghanistan might be the issue they sweep under the carpet in 2012, but if they do it will be the decider in 2016.
Politics and the economy
Can the euro be saved by screwing the proles – and at what cost to freedom?
by Phil T Lucre
The Spanish government yesterday unveiled the toughest austerity measures and spending reforms in any budget of the post-Franco era. Public expressions of discontent bordering on civil disorder continued across the country. The problem for Spain in common with other weaker euro countries (i.e. all of them except Germany, Finland and Luxembourg is familiar: they cannot relieve their exploding debt burden by the traditional method of currency devaluation to get their economies back on track, so control of the economy must instead be achieved by decreasing the value of wages and forcing asset values to fall in real terms (‘internal devaluation’ aka inflation, the destroyer of savings, pensions and prosperity,). This means the population will have to pick up all the tab for the incompetence of their elitoist leaders through falling wages, fewer social benefits, less job security and so on.
When a netion gets into this state the situation becomes politically explosive, as the recent protests sweeping Athens, Madrid and Lisbon have indicated. Social and economic imperatives among the populace are clashing head to head with the deeply embedded authoroitarian idologies of the elite and threatening to derail their dream of a global totalitarian government.
It is clear that Spain, Greece and others need to undergo far-reaching structural reforms to improve their labour markets and industrial output in order to regain competitiveness and correct the brutal imbalances that have built up during their time in the fatally flawed Eurozone. Failing this, the euro will have to either break up or go for a full fiscal union. But is it possible to achieve such adjustment – and save the euro – through internal devaluation alone? This is the question Open Europe revisits in a briefing published yesterday.
In the view of the Daily Stirrer the answer is no. Many European nations are already close to social breakdown and even France is in deep trouble as President Hollande's socialist government is forced to abandon tax-and-spen promises and face up to the economic realities facing the country.
Europe's Betrayal Of Spain
Freedom Of Speech? To Twewntieth Century For The Leftist Nazis
by Ed Butt
Another highly placed Obama felching neo nazi leftie American legal scholar named Eric Posner is endorsing gutting the First Amendment
in favor of anti-blasphemy, anti "hate speech", anti - inequality laws and state sponsored censorship. It's the most anti-Free Speech commentary I've seen yet. And naturally it comes from a leftie.
The first amendment to the US Bill of Rights means little to us British of course. But our rights are enshrined in law too. The Magna Carta? you might well ask. No but closeish, our common law rights are enshrined in a document signed into law before that even. king alfred's Liber Judicialis was written in the ninth century. So why are we letting these jumped up colonials and a bunch of closet Jew Roasters in Brussels dictate to us what we can and can't say.
It turns out Prof.
Goebbels Posner is of the opinion that "we overvalue free speech" (i.e. the ethics and values of goat molesting, vagina mutilating woman killers are the right ones and our Graeco Roman Christian values are wrong. So we must abandon ours our moral code and adopt theirs or to put it another way, "often free speech must yield to other values and the need for order." Didn't Hitler say something like that?
Chicago law professor Posner, who also argues "We have to remember that our First Amendment values are not universal; they emerged contingently from our own political history, a set of cobbled-together compromises among political and ideological factions responding to localized events..."
Well yes, American rights such as Free Speech did emerge from American history and the shared Anglo Saxon values of the English speaking diaspora and the Germanic lands. Islamic values, which Prof Posner seems so fond of emerged out of Muslim history. Their values suit them, our values suit most of us with the exception of ego tripping elitist academics like Posner who have never done an honest days work in their lives but have progressed from being hooked on coke to being hooked on power.
If Posner was a tenth as intelligent as he thinks he is (Chicago you must remember is the University that gave Barack Obama a tenured Professorship which did not require him to deliver any lectures, host any tutorials or even turn up to collect his mail) he might understand the case for free speech is a profoundly philosophical one, with a very long history (stretching back to Ancient Greece) and it is not only a Western idea, either. Posner is allegedly a highly educated legal scholar so we have grounds to suspect he knows this but finds it inconvenient and thus pretends it is not so (In Posner's Brave New World can we expect it will be verboten to suggest that some public figure is, umm, being economical with the truth?)
The western culture hating Posner goes on to say "As often happens, what starts out as a grudging political settlement has become, when challenged from abroad, a dogmatic principle to be imposed universally. Suddenly, the disparagement of other people and their beliefs is not an unfortunate fact but a positive good. It contributes to the 'marketplace of ideas...'"
Challenged from abroad? So this guy thinks that when a raving Muslim cleric damands we decare free speech illegal and make insulting the Prophet a capital offence punishable by stoning we in Europe, the USA, Australia, Canada, Japan and other outlying farmsteads of the civilised world should simply cave in to extremist demands.
There is a lot wrong with the way free speech laws are interpreted these days but the freedom to examine and criticize people and beliefs is a positive good, How else will we ever be able to separate good ideas from bad ones? How else will we be able to determine that educating little girls is far more beneficial to society than mutilating their vaginas and using ancient, outmoded marriage traditions to enslave them. There is no other way other than freedom of discussion. And government can't specify in which ideas or criticisms are and aren't permitted -- that would assume we already knew and agreed on Truth.
Does this self righteous, simpering clown seriously ask us to believe that if we are allowed the freedom to think for ourselves we might decide that Nazis or other right wing fanatics are right after all."
It is not right wing extremists who threaten our freedom but left wing extremists like Posner. We must never forget that hitler's political movement were the National Socialists.
Threat To Free Speech
Spend money on army not foreign aid, says former defence minister
The rumblings of discontent in the Conservative ranks grew louder yesterday following David Cameron's shameful and spineless sucking up to Obama and the United Nations general assembly by ignoring public opinion in the UK and pledging that foreign development aid will be increased.
David Cameron should divert billions of pounds spent on foreign aid to the armed forces to stop Britain losing power in the world, a former defence minister has said
Read the full story Former minister says foreign aid money should be spent on British army
The Independent carries a story today that reveals the epth of economic illiteracy on this country.
Britain's fragile economy is losing more than £5bn a year as a result of a growing crisis in social care funding aggravated by the Government's austerity measures.
People are giving up an estimated £4bn in pay – cash that would have been channelled back into the economy – because they are being forced to leave work to care for elderly or disabled relatives. The Treasury is also missing out on ...
And how do the people responsible for this article think we will pay for the care needed by the eldery and disabled if the carers (£55 a week allowance) abandon their charges to return to the workplace.
We would have to hire nurses and trained carers at arounf £400 a week (plus of course the ten administrative jobs each from line job in the NHS or local government generates.
With our schools and universities turning out people who can think that represents an advantage is it any wonder the country is up shit creek
Argentina Orders britain To Open Talks On The Future Of The Falklands
ARGENTINE President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner issued an order for Britain to embark on talks on the Falkland Islands.
The fierce president attacked David Cameron for not being willing to enter into discussions over the future of the fought-over islands.
Speaking at the United Nations General Assembly, Ms Fernandez de Kirchner said: "Next year it will be 180 years since the UK illegally usurped our Malvinas Islands.
"We reiterate this is not a bilateral issue between the UK and us, this issue has become a global issue."
Where we come from that's fighting talk. This time we should not pussyfoot around with them. One type 45 destroyers could blow hald their country away.
Cameron to ignore calls to slash Britain's foreign aid budget
Prime Minister David Cameron will restate his promise to set aside around £12 billion per year to help struggling countries overseas when he addresses the United Nations General Assembly in New York today. The Prime Minister will also call on other countries to meet the same target of spending 0.7 per cent of their national income on aid every year.
He will say "We must send a clear message to those who signed up to Millennium Development Goals that now is the time to step up and honour those promises," a press release revealed.
In a move intended to silence citics, many within his own party, Mr Cameron will insist it is not the right time to back away from helping developing countries.
The Daily Stirrer begs to differ. When the nations receiving aid from British taxpayers include China, India, Russia, Brazil and many other developing nations that are in better economic shape than Britain it is exactly the right time to stop throwing our hard earned cash at them.
Poverty tycoons who make themselves millionaires from taxpayer-funded foreign aid budget
In responce to questions about Britin's overseas aid budget,David Cameron has said at the United Nations that rather than cutting aid to developing nations in these austere times UK taxpayers should be happy it is being increased. Meanwhile with her own millions safely tied up in trusts Hillary Clinton demands global wealth taxes to raise money for helping the disadvantaged.
Eleven year olds progress to higher school unable to read, write and do sums
by Ed Butt
Around 25% of the 135,000 pupils who left primary school this summer will take with them to their higher school an inadequate grasp of the basic skills, reading, language and arithmetic. This is in contrast to a claimed sharp improvement in national results, demonstrating once more that the improvements in educational standards claimed by politicians of both sides owe more to dumbing down of standards that improved teaching methods.
Results in Sats tests taken by pupils across England show a marked improvement on standards registered in 2011, with scores in all three core subjects improving. But the figures show a sharp gender gap at the heart of the education system, with girls significantly more likely to gain Level 4 – the standard expected of all schoolchildren – than boys.
In all, 79 per cent of girls hit the target compared with 71 per cent of boys.
It was also revealed that the overall rise in standards was partly down to a decision to scrap a controversial writing exam this year.

How Much Trouble The American Economy Is In
Phil T Lucre
No apologies for bringing you an item on the U.S. economy and its debt crisis today, the American economy is so much bigger than any other it's fortunes affect every other nation. So the article we link you to is worth studying because it tells us a lot about the future we all face.
Sometimes a few facts tell important stories. The American economy now is full of facts that tell stories that you really don't want, but need, to hear.
Where are we now?
Did you know that annual spending by the federal government now exceeds the 2007 level by about $1 trillion? With a slow economy, revenues are little changed. The result is an unprecedented string of federal budget deficits, $1.4 trillion in 2009, $1.3 trillion in 2010, $1.3 trillion in 2011, and another $1.2 trillion on the way this year. The four-year increase in borrowing amounts to $55,000 per U.S. household.
The amount of debt is one thing. The burden of interest payments is another. The Treasury now has ... Read full post

Brain Damaged Man Loses Disabled Living Allowance
by Ian R Thorpe
We heard today that a man who suffered severe brain damage has had his disabled living allowance cut by bureaucrats.
Naturally the neo Nazis in the media and on the left of politics are trying to blame the coalition government but I can speak from experience when I tell you this was going on under Labour too. After a brain haemorrhage left me hemiplaegic in 1997 I was iniutially awarded Disabled Living allowance then some months later, after the government had launched on of its many crackdowns on "benefit fraud" it was removed and (still paralysed, unable to walk and needing constant attendance) I was told to report to the job centre and regioster myself as looking for work.
It took several months to get my case reviewed but after I had lacerated the local batch of crimplene trouser wearing, power abusing, Labour voting little Hitlers I was asked to become a patient advocate, helping people defend themselves against the incompetence and sheer malice of public servants.
That went on for a few years then I was told if I could spend two or three hours a month helping people I could return to work full time. A medical examination confirmed I was not fit to work full or even part time so it was "recommended" that I stop acting as a patient advocate due to concerns about my health.
Readers are familiar with my attitude to the idiocies of the politically correct left. This case is just another example. Currenty to be safe from authoritarian bureaucracy a person needs to be black, asian, gay, lesbian, have learing difficulties or mentasl health problems, be an alcoholic or be obese.
Unfortunately people with real health problems like the man in the story are, in a warped way, fashion victims. As far as the lefties are concerned brain damage is so last year, identity politics is in and anyone who can satisfy the criteria to prove they are a victim is going to take priority.
The Two Sides Of Extremism
I have a recurring dream, that I awake to find my bed surrounded by large, scowling, heavy set men in black suits. They all crack their fingers in a menacing way and all of them have an unnatural looking bulge in their jackets, just under the shoulder. They will not tell me who they are or for what agency they work but only than I am accused of being guilty and must ...
The Untouchables - Anna Raccoon
We seem to have a permanent section of criminal society that is marked ‘untouchable’, a niche corner where no one is responsible for their actions, where those suitably labelled are accorded automatic victim status regardless of their part in their current imbroglio.

Within my lifetime, it started with women. Women could do anything a man could do – so went the mantra. That included criminal ...
The Illiberal Undemocratic Party, are poised to become as authoritarian as their neo Nazi chums in the Labour party. Following in the footsteps of the world's most powerful liberal fascist Mayor Bloomberg of New York the Illib Undems are taking up the mantle of the anti-coke war in Britain. At the upcoming party conference, the party formerly known as the Lib Dems will argue for the need for a fizzy-drink tax, presumably on the predictable grounds that it will ‘combat obesity’ while raising tax revenue. But, in reality, this is an attempt to use taxation as a means to change people’s consumption habits by imposing a sin tax.
This type of fascism (we are imposing our will on you by force to save you from your own folly)which I have previously dubbed Populist Authoritarianism is not just typical of the Lib Dems and those other "progressives" in; it is quite popular with the conservatives too, and increasingly with politicians all around the free world too. All generally seem to agree that we need high taxes on alcohol and tobacco, not to mention plastic bags.
Traditionally, the soft socialism of centre-left political parties led to a desire to subsidise via taxation the goods that people consumed daily, making them cheaper and easier to purchase. The idea was that as the rich paid most tax and some of that revenue helped poorer people to enjoy a few indulgences the greatest good of the greatest number was achieved Now however, parties like the Lib Dems are more concerned with raising the prices of certain goods in order that people make politically correct lifestyle choices i.e. the choices of people who are members of the neo fascist Liberal Democrat party.
The hypocrisy of these smug scumsuckers is nauseating.

Light Bulb Ban. Time To Get Incandescent With Rage
Last weekend was your last chance to stock up with proper light bulbs, you know the ones that we switch on when we want to read after nightfall or go into the kitchen without falling over the cat or have sex with the lights on. (last chance to stock up on old fashioned lightbulbs)
Yes, thanks to those pointy headed fuckwitted sheeple who proclaim every useless technological innovation (like light bulbs that make the darkness darker) is a "great leap forward"* for humanity, we will be reduced to living like cavemen who had to sit in the dark between sunset and sunrise - you can't even light a candle unless you are smart enough to disable the smoke alarms, another infernal fuck up by people who are so clever they don't know the difference between water vapour and CO2 so these wretched gadgets kick off every time we boil a kettle.
(*The use of a phrase popularised by Chairman Mao is not a coincidence)
But say you can't afford to buy a lifetime's supply of incandescent bulbs this weekend. all is not lost. You see scientists are stupid but bureucrats who make the control freak rules to impose stupid science on us are morons. These unthinking idiots think if they make a rule we will all obey it because they themselves are too dull witted and unimaginative to ever circumvent a rule they assume we all are.
First, the case for banning incandescent lights is false, a lie.
Most incandescent bulbs convert less than 5% of the energy they use into visible light (with the remaining energy being converted into heat)"
Question; When do you turn on a light?
Answer; When it's dark.
Question: When is it mostly dark?
Answer; In the winter.
Question; When is it mostly cold?
Answer; In the winter.
So, if you remove the 95 Watts of heat that a 100 Watt light bulb produces how do you replace it? You turn up the central heating thermostat thus there is no net energy saving.
The whole issue of incandescent lights is a typical bureaucratic cock up imposed on us by the Euronazis in Brussels who would ban us from breathing if they could.
Has anyone noticed a signigicant saving on electricity bills since 100 watt bulbs were banned BTW.
Help is at hand however. If you don't fancy reading by candlelight, cowering behind the sofa from dawn to dusk hoping the sceadugengan don't get you or falling over the cat every tiime you are groping your way back from the kitchen with a cup of hot tea in your hand, buy ROUGH USE LIGHTBULBS (from linked site or check my search listing fo other contacts)

Heathrow Expansion Talk Shows Coalition Have Totally Embraced Labour Hypocrisy.
by Little Nicky Machiavelli
Grant Shapps, Conservative housing minister in the Coalition cabinet has signalled government support for the revival of one of Labour's most useless, fuckwitted and hypocritical ideas, a third runway at Heathrow Airport.
"Britain must consider building a third runway at Heathrow if it is to remain a great trading nation”, Shapps said yesterday. FFS, what panet is he on.
Little Nicky has blogged about this back in the days when Gordon (Psycho) Brown was battering dissidents to death with the office telephone and threatening that anyone who obstructed his plan to suspend planning laws and fast track plans for Heathrow to get runways 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 would be taken outside and shot.
Not only is it stupid, because very little freight is moved by air, the biggest airfreight jets having a payload of around 150 tons (the equivalent of three standard freight containers) while a small container ship with a 15,000 ton payload can move 1000, the equivalent of 300 trips for airfreight and the the Emma Maersk, one of the bigggest container ships in the world with a payload of over 200,000 tons can shift ten thousand containers at a time.
Airports are for moving people around and with the communication ability the internet, cellular telephony and modern telephone networks give us we should have less rather than more need to shift people from continent to continent.
Heathrow runway 3 is a vanity project and exposes government hypocrisy. Why would anyone, Labour, Conservative or Lib Dem who was ever serious about "greening the economy" support such a carbon intensive idea. Unless they are all going to stand up and admit all that "climate science" bollocks was just a scam to justify banging a tax on domestic fuel.

Syria: Western Media Start To Get A Handle On Reality
by Ed Butt
The Daily Stirrer and our esteemed colleague Little Nicky Machiavelli have consistently reported that the conflict in Syria was a mess and to give in to the bizarre compulsion felt by politically correct western leaders to intervene of the side of the "freedom fighters" when any fule kno that the rebels are even more a threat to fredom and democracy than the tyrant Assad.
We have taken a lot of stick for this, the cohorts of the Thought Police have offered all their usual knee jerk responses, called us racists, noe - cons, war loving capitalists and every other unthinking epithet they could muster. The tide is turning. The Daily Stirrer and Little Nicky are never wrong and at last the politically correct Thought Police are realising that a tribalistic theocracy that would celebrate it's ascent to power by slaughtering Syria's thee million Christians and then start on members of Assad's Alawi tribe (not because they are all assad supporters but because they are the wrong tribe) would be a worse outcome than the continuance in power of a tyrant who might muder dissidents and suppress free speech but otherwise is largely secular.

Standard Chartered Bank and Obama's Racism
by Phil T Lucre
Standard Chartered may not be a household name in Britain, but in plenty of countries this bank is one of our best known national brands. Which makes its alleged behaviour over Iran even more troubling and inexplicable.
First things first: Standard Chartered denies the allegation made by the New York state regulator that it carried out sanctions-busting transactions on behalf of Iranian clients totalling $250 billion over a decade.
The bank’s response, however, makes interesting reading. Of the nine paragraphs, note how four of them merely say that Standard Chartered was kind enough to cooperate fully with the investigation, turn itself in to the authorities and hand over everything that was asked of it etc etc. You have to wade through 280 words of this gloss before you get to the substance.
When you do, you find that the bank does not dispute the central facts. Instead, its defence hinges on how to interpret the US rules restricting financial transactions with Iran. Here, Standard Chartered thinks the regulator got it wrong by enforcing a view of the rules that was “incorrect as a matter of law”. In effect, Standard Chartered is saying ‘yes, we carried out these transactions, but we think they were within the regulations’. In paragraph five, however, the bank admits that even on its own interpretation of the rules, deals with Iran worth $14 million were in breach of US sanctions.
Let’s be kind and assume, for a moment, that Standard Chartered’s view of the regulations is correct and “only” $14 million of its transactions with Iran amounted to violations of US sanctions. That is still pretty extraordinary. There are moral and political objections to doing business in a country with a deeply repressive regime like Iran’s. But more than anything else, there are commercial objections as well. What kind of a bank thinks that doing business with Iran is such a good idea that it’s worth risking the condemnation of the US authorities? Put bluntly, what kind of a bank thinks that Tehran is more important to them than Wall Street?
As a result of sanctions, Iran's oil exports have declined from 2.2bn barrels a day to 1.7bn barrels (June figures).
Readers will not be surprised to know that the largest purchaser of Iran's oil is the People's Republic of China, and that they have reduced their purchases to satisfy the US who in turn have decided not to 'punish' China for continuing to buy approx 400,000 barrels a day.
Ecuador has also been negotiating a deal with Iran.
The point is, if you ask where does all this money come from that Standard Chartered was allegedly 'laundering', it is part of a revenue stream that must include all of Iran's customers in the oil and gas business.
But for Standard Chartered their long view might be that dealing with Iran under an unpleasant regime now, could be beneficial in the longer term when Iran changes; this was the reasoning a lot of multinational firms used to ignore sanctions in South Africa, and many of them benefitted from their loyalty to South Africa after Apartheid was dismantled.
What we have right now is short-term political game-playing that could cause long term-damage to financial institutions -maybe this is an attempt by Wall St to destroy its competitors in a shrinking market?

More Dumbing Down As Examiners Told To Fix Results
by Xavier Connolly
‘Comparable outcomes’, is a system operated by school examination boards that allows examiners to change marking criteria ensuring the same number of pupils get the top grades every year. This system of official cheating has been introduced as part of the Education Department’s efforts to prove exams are not getting “too easy”.
Some teachers argue it is not fair on talented pupils, or schools producing high achievers, as they will get a lower grade than they would have in previous years.
Ministers have been under pressure to ensure A-levels are not 'dumbing down' after a steep rise over the last ten years in the number of pupils achieving top marks.
Last year the number of pupils achieving A Grades was capped for the first time since the late 1980s at 27 per cent, following the introduction of the ‘comparable outcomes’. Now Ofqual wants to extend it to GCSEs.
A document from the exams regulator has been leaked to The Independent newspaper. It states: “If necessary we will require exam boards to change their grade boundaries.... [so that] roughly the same proportion of students will achieve each grade as in the previous year.”
Professor Alan Smithers, director of the Centre for Education and Employment at Buckingham University, argued that it is a sensible temporary measure to stop A-level results becoming meaningless before the exam system is improved overall.
The awarding bodies are going to be asked to account for any big deviation upwards. I think it is a useful interim measure to tackle the gross inflation in A-level results," he said.
This was the policy up until 1987, when just 10 per cent of candidates for A levels obtained A-Grades each year.
This is another example of the politicisation of education that went on under the Labour government and has continued under the Coalition. The Daily Stirrer has reported many times on how this constant meddling with exam marking systems to make education policy seem successful has resulted in potential employers coming to egard A level results and even university degrees as worthless.

Corn Crisis Is Next Threat To World Economy
If the new World Bank president (name of Yong Kim – these sinecures never go to Europeans or white Americans now we notice) was hoping for a honeymood period while he gets his feet under the desk he can forget it: Kim can add to his headaches over the Europe’s
debt crisis the problem of surging food prices.
In his first month on the job Kim spent most of his energy trying to gauge how the Eurozone crisis is affecting the plight of the poor. There are troubling signs that the economies of China and India are slowing as has been reported by the Daily Stirrer. That might leave Asia, which has the largest share of extreme poverty, without its only growth engines.
That’s almost manageable compared with what’s confronting Kim in his second month: the worst U.S. drought in 56 years and dry weather in agricultural regions in India, Kazakhstan, Russia and Ukraine has ruined grain crops. Coupled with exploding demand for food, this has caused violent commodity-price volatility at the worst possible time for Asia.
Rising food prices limit how much central bankers can cut interest rates to safeguard growth. More troubling would be the potential setback to poverty-reduction programs for decades to come.
The last food crisis began amid the 2008-2009 crash of the U.S. economy. In the second half of 2010 alone, according to the World Bank, some 44 million people were pushed back below the extreme poverty line, defined as those living on $1.25 a day or less. Asia is home to the bulk of those who spend between 60 percent and 80 percent of their paltry incomes on food.

According to reports in newspapers and broadcast news today, six serious mistakes, dubbed 'never events' because they should never occur, have happened in the last year at Croydon University Hospital, in south London, NHS regulators have revealed.
Incidents included the wrong knee being operated on, two people were given the wrong lens eye implant and a surgical swab being left inside someone after surgery.
Two more never events occurred after the inspections in June but those details have not been revealed.
The findings were 'very worrying' and the problems need addressing 'urgently', a spokesperson said.
The Care Quality Commission reported there was equipment lacking in the surgical recovery unit which had meant patients had to stay overnight unnecessarily and other operations had to be delayed.
There was also a shortage of staff with many patients saying although the standard of care they received was good, nurses seemed overstretched.
Matthew Trainer, deputy director of CQC in London, said: “The standards of quality and safety in care that CQC checks are those that the law says everyone should expect. These standards exist to protect vulnerable people – who cannot always speak up for themselves – from being put at risk of harm.
The left and commentators in mainstream media will claim this state of affairs is due to cuts imposed by the coalition government. Those who support the government will blame the Labour government and the unions. The real culprits are the NHS managers.
When bean counters and box tickers are put in control of anything they focus on their strengths. Thus the modern NHS is about bean counting and box ticking rather than patient care. Doctors and nurses are so fearful of failing to follow procedure to the letter they are neglecting to do what needs to be done. And front line staff spend far too much time on paperwork causing patient care to suffer even further.
There is nothing wrong with the NHS that could not be solved by prioritising the right things. Unfortunately wankers will always prioritise wanking.

Texting is fostering bad grammar and spelling, researchers claim
Teenagers who frequently use 'txtspk' when they text performed poorly on a grammar test, said Drew Cingel, a former undergraduate student in communications at Penn State University.
'Txtspk' includes shortcuts, homophones and the ommission of non-essential letters.
When teens write in techspeak, they often use shortcuts, such as homophones, acronyms and omissions of non-essential letters such as 'wud' for 'would.' But researchers say the texting is having a detrimental effect on normal rules of grammar.
Mr Cingel gave middle school students in a central Pennsylvania school a grammar test and also asked them how often they sent text messages. "Overall, there is evidence of a decline in grammar scores based on the number of adaptations in sent text messages, controlling for age and grade," said Mr Cingel.
Those who sent or recieved the most text performed the worst in the test.
"In other words, if you send your kid a lot of texts with word adaptations, then he or she will probably imitate it," Sundar said.
"These adaptations could affect their off-line language skills that are important to language development and grammar skills, as well."
We can forget all this politically correct bullshit. Children have always used slang. When I was at school 50 years ago it was cockney rhyming slang and Polari, a slang used by musicians, travelling showmen who worked the fairs and circuses, prostitues, homosexuals and other disreputable types who might have reasons for not wanting respectable people to know what they were talking about.
The difference between then and now is we would not have been allowed to use such slang in our schoolwork. Now the politically correct education system is so obsessed with "encouraging creativity" and being "cool" pupils are not made to use appropriate English in class or homework projects.

The Unreported Assassination Attempt On Hillary Clinton
This story comes from Newstrack India
Washington, July 20: Was there an assassination attempt on U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton while she was on an official visit to Israel. According to Israel Radio and Reuters, there was.
Israel Radio broke the story earlier in the week, which was confirmed by sources inside Israel, but never mentioned again.According to World Mathaba, the purported attack on Clinton was related to the current political upheaval in Israel-the aim being kill Clinton, blame Iran and take the focus off the domestic political meltdown in Tel Aviv.
Normal security procedures should have prevented any vehicle on open regions from coming within 200 meters of Clinton, news a.gency reports said.
According to sources, the attack on Clinton's convoy, a minimum of three to five vehicles, traveling from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, follows the story earlier of an attack on a bus loaded with Israeli tourists that exploded in Bulgaria, which killed six persons.
According to World Mathaba, both the Bulgaria attack and the attempted assassination of Clinton was a Mossad "false flag" operation. There are dozens of Mossad agents operating in Bulgaria, which still has in place massive Soviet era security services that follow all tourists. Coincidentally, the attack on Clinton took place within hours of her supporting Israel regarding the Bulgarian attack, it said. World Mathaba claims to be an independent middle eastern news agency but as with all news organisations in the region it's claims should be treated with caution. Unfortunately we have to say that of western news media also.
Only today The Daily Stirrer learned that in the wake of complaints that the supposedly impartial BBC have ben presenting a totally biased, anti - Assad picture of events in Syria it has been revealed that BBC news teams on the ground in Syrian towns are embedded in rebel cells.
The Daily Stirrer has always taken a non interventionist line on Syria and other troubled middle eastern states. We know that narcississtic piece of shit in The White House has been arming the Syrian rebels via Turkey as he tries to start the major regional conflict his paymasters the global elitist New World Order need as the next step on their path towards global tyranny. Here is more news from the middle east:
Al Qaeda Taking Deadly New Role in Syria Conflict
''CAIRO — It is the sort of image that has become a staple of the Syrian revolution, a video of masked men calling themselves the Free Syrian Army and brandishing AK-47s — with one unsettling difference. In the background hang two flags of al Qaeda, white Arabic writing on a black field:
“We are now forming suicide cells to make jihad in the name of God,” said a speaker in the video using the classical Arabic favored by Al Qaeda. (New York Times)
An anonymous blogger sums it up, heading a comment with words taken from an editoirial in a national newspaper he says:
"This is not a plan for long term survival, but it could be a strategy for hanging on for some months to come. The endgame may not have begun just yet."
Hiow can there be a plan for long term survival when the government of one small developing country is facing the entire wealth of the superpower and its oil-rich local proxies deployed against it, with little or no significant external support. Iran is just another medium-sized developing country, and Russia and China are unable to do much by virtue of the geographic and geopolitical realities.
Against such power, and in the face of such odds, mere hanging on is a triumph.
Clearly while Obama and the other skunk felching sycophants ewho lead the free world are desperate for the downfall of Assad they have not considered that what comes after him may be much worse for the west and the Syrian people.

Parents treat us like NHS staff on a Saturday night, says headteacher attacked in his office
A headmaster has complained that parents treat teachers like "NHS staff on a Saturday night" after he was attacked in his study by an angry father. Kieran Heakin, 60, was grabbed around the throat after being confronted by the man who believed his son was being bullied by fellow pupils.
As other teachers tried to intervene, the angry father also tried to kick and headbutt Mr Heakin and shouted: "Now I am really going to hurt you" during the assault at St John the Baptist Roman Catholic school in Burnley, Lancs . The headmaster, who has taught in schools for 40 years was left bruised. his 45 year old attacker was subsequently arrested.
In 2009, Mr Heakin was attacked by former pupil Jermaine Bullen, then 26, who harboured a 20 year grudge against him - falsely claiming he used to cane him when he was six years old. Bullen told Mr Heakin: "You used to beat me up and I have waited all these years to meet up with you again" before repeatedly kicked and punched him in an Indian restaurant.
In that attack Mr Heakin was left needing facial reconstruction surgery, had four metal plates fitted and is now permanently deaf in one ear, and has no sense of smell and taste.
Mr Heakin condemned the lack of respect shown to teachers by parents after the father who attacked him escaped jail after he was found guilty of assault.
He said: "We are just like NHS staff on a Saturday night where people come into a hospital accident and emergency department and do not have any respect for those people who are trying to help.
This is a disturbing case but to put it in context we should think of all those stories about serious instances of systematic bullying in which headmaster have glibly dismissed allegations that later turned out to be true, simply by saying "We do not tolerate bullying in this school." All their zero tolerance amounts to is looking the other way and refusing to see what is happening under their nosers.
When headmaster stop treating parents in the same way as they treat eleven year oldsand realise it is they, not the parents of their pupils who decided life in the adult world was just too tough job like and took refuge in a losers career like teaching and then they drop the superciliouis attitudes and speak to parents as equals they might earn back a little of the respect they used to enjoy
The Failure Of Education, The Subversion Of BureaucracyGovernment plans to toughen up the penalties that can be imposed on parents guilty of 'bad parenting' and tolerating truancy do not signal determination to deal with the problems in the education system but are an admission that progressive and ideological ideas in education havre failed generations of bored and disengaged pupils.
Back To basics Policy To Save Education?
Coalition Ministers revealed their proposals for a back-to-basics curriculum for state schools, with the focus shifting away from soft subjects and abstract studies back to basic arithmetic, times-tables, spelling, grammar, reading and history. Predictably Teachers' Union leaders warned it would lead to an unexciting "uniform education" for children. Maybe so, butonce pupils are equipped with those basics they can go on to study whatever they finmd interesting. There is little point talking about Shakespeare to kids who can't ...
Banning Words Like "Fatty" Is Not Being Caring And Nice, It's Fascism By Stealth
The more desperate the Thought Police get because they see the tide in society not just tuining against their stupid, politically correct agenda but becoming a torrent, the more loony their ideas get. The latest Loonytoons notion is to ban the use of terms like fatty and speccy-four-eyes and introduce body image and self esteem classes in schools. Pupils who offend can then join the 80,000 kids, some as young as four, who are on the racism register for crimes as serious as calling a black child velcro - head.

Dumbing Down Is Now Officvial Education Policy
by Xavier Connolly
We have commented on the lack of p[olicy in government education policy many times. The years of bureaucratic obsession with ever improving pass rates which led to progrssive lowering of standards has, like a vulture coming home to roost, finally caught up with the bean counters of the state education state education system.
Gladdening the hearts of the old gits who write The Daily Stirrer, Lord Willis, chairman of the house of Lords Science and Technology Committee, has professed himself “absolutely gobsmacked” by the results of the investigation he commissioned into the standard of maths teaching in state schools. Professors of mathematics at Cambridge, York and Surrey have reported that some students entering university with an A-level A* qualification in maths have to be given remedial training before they are ready to start their undergraduate course work. Part of the reason for this dismal outlook is the modular structure of courses provided by competing exam boards to make the subject easier in a “race to the bottom” in pursuit of better statistics.
Most people who question this dire situation do so in purely utilitarian or economic terms: we are, they say, falling behind our competitors, China and India, who know the importance of high standards in maths. Even more shocking however is the discovery that the exam boards seem to care nothing for academic excellence as a good thing in its own right – the very thing they were appointed to uphold, all they are intertested in is statistics. And how long before the universities themselves dumb down their maths syllabus to accommodate the incompetence of their entrants?
Only last week the grinning loon Prof. Brian Cox was whinging about there not being enough places available on science courses for those who want to enrol. Clearly brian, a typical leftie, thinks young people should be given university places on demand. Maths BSc? Sure. No, it's not a problem that you think two and two makes five. In our dumbed down, crypto marxist future it may be an advantage.
We cannot cease to be shocked by the sheer awfulness of state education. On the Education Department’s own reckoning, 43 per cent of pupils leave after eleven years of compulsory, free education unable to read, write and count efficiently. It amounts to child abuse.
And it’s not just in maths and English. The whole system is imbecilic. And not only imbecilic but ideologically driven. An intelligent sixteen year old boy told me about his history lessons: “We just get Hitler, the slave trade, suffragettes, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela and the evils of British imperialism.”
In other words, our state schools operate a policy of left wing political indoctrination which would have been the envy of the Soviet Union – except the USSR wasn’t as dumbed down as we are.

I am not a Marxist, that does not make me a creationist. I am not a creationist, that does not make me a Marxist.
by Ian R Thorpe
I am not a Marxist, that does not make me a creationist. I am not a creationist, that does not make me a Marxist.
Sunday morning is a lazy time for those who have no young children and no interest in religion. Every Sunday, in a slot that was for years occupied by a Christian religious program Mrs. T and I like to watch the wider discussion show that now fills that hour as we consume a leisurely breakfast. One thing that strikes me in these discussions is that the secular view is often represented by a "scientist" who labours under the misapprehension that all who participate in worship or do not subscribe to Marxist thinking are creationists.
I am not a Marxist, that does not make me a creationist. I am not a creationist, that does not make me a Marxist.

Tory Voters Turn Against David Cameron
Voters are growing more and more disaffected with David Cameropn's performance as Prime Minister and feel that U turn after U turn on policy has created an aura of incompetence and lack of leadership”.
An analysis of the government's performance compiled by Lord Ashcroft, the former Conservative Party deputy chairman and a polling expert, found that Mr Cameron faces a “formidable” challenge to win the next general election.
Ashcroft's poll of more than 8,000 adults found Labour enjoyed 40 per cent support, the Conservatives 31 per cent, Liberal Democrats 10 per cent and the UK Independence Party 9 per cent. Focus groups were also created to assess the views of key groups of target voters.
Lord Ashcroft’s study, titled Project Blueprint, found that continuing credible economic management was still the critical factor among those who will potentially support the Conservatives at the next election.
The Tories are still seen as more competent in this area and Lord Ashcroft’s research suggests they should focus on this rather than confusing voters with pledges about constitutional reform, referendums on Europe and an overhaul of the NHS.
As the vDaily Stirrer has said before, "We told you so." Conservatives want conservative policies and true liberals like all of us, who believe in small government and greater individual freedom in a lightly regulated but humane society, want the kind of policies John Locke, Adarticlem Smith, John Stuart Mill and David Lloyd George would have recognised as Liberal. Instead the Coalition is giving us the same politically correct concensus politics as New Labour gave us during thirteen years of misrule.
Those were not Labour policies of course but the kind of oligarchic collectivism that Orwell warned of in "1984" and that the smooth faced closetr Nazis of the EU and the United Nations are using to promote their Nazi dream of a totalitarian world government.
If any of us are still around in 20 years and people are still allowed to post their opinions on the internet* we do not want to be saying "We told you so," on this issue.
*Remember, Gordon Brown for New Labour and Barack Obama for the Barack Hussein Obama World Domination Society have both said dissident websites written by people who "do not understand the problems" (because we do not agrre with thgeir authoritarian solutions) should be closed down by governments.

Heart Attack Pill: Medicate Everybody And Abolish Death
There’s been new talk of a polypill: a pill the entire population are required to take by law on a regular basis in the expectation that such fascistic measures will eradicate the health problems that cost the National health Service most money.
"Is a pill to cure bureaucratic incompetence and money wasting?" You might well ask.
Well no, those boffins with their white coats, cone shaped heads and personal odour issuesw are not quite that clever yet.
The new polypill is just plain old statins, the cholesterol loering drug that causes arse dribble while totally overlooking the fact that people who have low cholesterol don't need it lowered any more. The
loonytoons scientific thinking behind this is dish it out to the whole population above a certain age, sit back and wait for heart disease rates to fall thus saving the NHS loadsamoney. And they few who die because they are forced to take a drug they don't need are not statistically significant so fuck 'em. As with most scientific great ideas it has not really been thought through, in fact Dr David Wald, who Iell you may say there is a possible conflict of interest there, Boggart Blog could not possibly comment.
Margaret McCartney, an outspoken Glasgow GP and medical commentator who has never been afraid to challenge the Big Phrama lackeys of the British Medical Association and the Department of Health nails the key point: that medicating entire populations sounds a great idea but often causes unexpected harm. It is more effective to target medication at the patients who need it rather than needlessly medicating a bunch of patients with nothing wrong with them. All those well patients get is a few possible side-effects, and no benefit. That’s a pretty crude method.
As Dr McCartney says, the healthy patients are also the ones most likely to take the pill. The sick ones, who might actually benefit, are also less likely to comply. The sort of diseases that this tablet is aimed at – cardiovascular, diabetes and so on – are very often associated with lifestyle and poverty. Addressing these causes would surely be a more sensible solution to the problem than offering a promise of immortality wrapped up in a nice little pill.

German Euro Maverick Tells Merkel To Make Her Mind Up As Luxembourg Warns Of Euro - Danger
Ambrose Evans-Pritchard writes in the Daily Telegraph:
"Thilo Sarrazin is not everbody’s cup of tea. The ex-Bundesbanker and shock-jock critic of Islam in Europe loves to make mischief.
But his latest broadside against monetary union in the Frankfurter Allgemeine is spot on. The Maastricht Treaty 20 years ago was a wild lurch into strategic incoherence.
Europe’s leaders fell into the trap of Goethe’s Zauberlehrling or Sorcerer’s Apprentice, launching a currency experiment that they could not control. Now the magic word eludes them. They cover up their impotence by deflecting blame onto markets.
Mr Sarrazin said EMU has demonstrably failed. Germany must draw the proper conclusion: either abandon the euro or accept the revolutionary step towards a European superstate. Morton’s Fork has arrived, with all its fateful consequences." Read full article"
