David Cameron showed he is a populist Kleptocratic leader. The man who uses 10s Bns in tax revenue to subsidise Banks, The Arms Industry, City, Big Oil and Hedge Funds said he was upset airlines deliberately put up holiday prices in the school holidays.

Um yeah!

Whether you’re Ron Paul, Rand Paul, Marx, Benn, Huhne, Cable or a fucking idiot but not as dumb as Call Me Dave what else would you expect? Continue reading »

A great indication of why Labour fans and other will not ever change anything came yesterday. Sarah Teather a Lib Dem MP announced she was leaving Parliament and cited:-

  • Equality and Opportunity policies which of course will not work whilst the UK feeds an unproductive money moving sector.
  • Forcing visitors to pay a £1000 for visas.
  • “It was the moment of realising that my own party was just as afraid of public opinion as the Labour Party”
  • How Welfare changes would save no or little money but inflict maximum damage on the poor.

So did Labour fans pick up these gems no they went on about how she did not vote for Gay marriage. Iain Dale some sort of radio guy whose work who I’ve not come across told an anecdote and basically said good bye I don’t like you (the level of politics in the Obama/Cameron era). She was cracked as about to lose her seat anyway. They mentioned how migrant children were still detained despite a wish for this not to be so and claim it was not so – Labour fans of course believe Asylum children should all be locked up and this should be proudly boasted of  so maybe I misunderstood and she was being criticised for being too weak on furriners, sorry Labour fans.

The Mainstream Media [MSM] commentators and the Social Media Politicos are interested in people’s lives and how miserable the main parties want them to become. They have no interest in right or wrong or effective policies after all they all support the stupidtocracy of subsidising Banks and Austerity. The perception of doing good and sounding moral is the goal nothing else.

Vote Labour Liberal or Conservative but please people don’t tell me your support is any different to a post Abramovich Chelsea fan’s.

Ask a rightie about public health, education and welfare and they’ll wax lyrical about the threat to their freedom. Yet ask them about the military, subsidised spying corporations and subsidised banks and all they see is paragons of virtue.

The growing cost of spooks and the needs of companies providing these services and others like prisons to grow has seen their costs rise but not the need for such services. Obstensibly this was about the need to stop people self harming with drugs and latterly to prevent small cells of lunatics committing terror acts.

Yet what threatens their freedom? An infrastructure that allows instant access to their private correspondence to some operator who for all they know is a sexual predator, paedophile or the person they cut up this morning.

Even their unproven nightmare of welfare dependency is a dependency not some insidious Booz Allen looking for new things to monitor. It costs assuming that these people would be fit for a job that was open to them. However it costs less than pushing those people into a criminal underclass. It costs less than letting banks break the law. Indeed it costs less than paying for massive growing armies of outsourced and unregulated spooks well beyond the requirements of tracking a few hundred relevant al Quada.

There has been no vote on the surveillance state even though GCHQ makes the NSA and their private contractors look like a model of restraint. Banks are free to help drug dealers and terrorists who their defenders then claim we are at war with! Now it emerges that criminal behaviour by Blue Chip companies is de rigueur and allowed. The point being there is no rule of law for the wealthy. Continue reading »

I grew up thinking that a written constitution and even a Bill of Rights was a good idea. That these somehow preserved something. The truth is the rules and rights are fine but they don’t work for the majority of us. That Britain and the US should be so involved in torture, rendition, war and spying makes the point. The US for all the bullshit about the Constitution and Bill of Rights joins with the UK in preventing ‘imminent’ attacks on the USA by people who live in the hinterlands of Pakistan.

It was Joseph Goebbels who said “You have nothing to fear, if you have nothing to hide” which Foreign Secretary William Hague so cheerfully threw out the other day. No doubt many tyrants and loons have used the same rhetoric down the years. Continue reading »

We had 1 attack in 8 years and that was not strictly speaking what the Yanks would call Terrorist – being an attack on a serving soldier they would deem it blowback plus it’s unclear who it would necessarily terrorise bar soldiers – terrorism IMO is aimed at civilians. Nonetheless the next day a plane is needlessly forced to land publicly.

As said before HSBC were caught laundering money for terrorists and drug dealers. Nothing was done about it. Clearly a few deaths and some onion in the hankie time is all Cameron and co really feel when push comes to shove. The aim is either to be populist and make a political point or to erode freedoms or because they are fundamentally stupid. Worse more legislation and snooping is a surrender to the terrorists and swivel eyed loons.

This week a tiger and dog killed 2 people. 100 women are killed by their partners. 1000s a year die un-necessarily in hospitals. Labour and Tory have done nothing about any of those things. Indeed they willfully ignore the latter 2 categories. Naturally the Red Salt lot via the authoritarian loons Johnson and Reid support more nonsense.

So hundreds of people died because of corporate incompetence in Staffordshire and no one is going to jail? Why?

Why when someone opportunistically picking up some water in a riot which will cost nothing measurable goes to jail does not being a Health Manager presiding over mass slaughter not qualify as a crime?  Continue reading »

As sad as it is to write this one cannot view the current investigation to what well known people may or may not have done with girls in the 70s as more than a witch hunt. Paedophiles probably should be prosecuted whatever but DJs who either did not ask or did not care whilst deserving of punishment are going to be almost impossible to prosecute. Imagine it 40 years ago you were 14/15 and you claim man screwed you. Prove date, sexual encounter and that man knew you were under age? Prosecution will surely only be possible due to jury prejudice or defendant incompetence.

Like re-opening the McCann case or Phone Hacking this is a massive waste of resources. The chance of injustice far greater than prosecution. The fact is the principal actor in all this visited children’s homes and hospitals and was a paedophile by any definition something that was known by Police and Govt. Indeed  investigations involving the powerful and Children’s homes are kept secret and yet with this so called investigation every week some so called celebrity is offered up by the corrupt Police officers investigating it.

Like Phone Hacking the corrupt Police who allowed this to happen are used to pretend someone takes these allegations very seriously.

Low interest rates a no brainer good for everyone. Why would anyone want a market rate of interest?

Here are the positive effects.
