I am under no illusion at my lack of reach in this world. Indeed this is arguably the chronicle of a mad man locked in a room with a type writer if Costa counts as a padded cell which it should. Nonetheless should this reach anyone I do have a message for those who want to change society. Sadly I am not among them possessing neither the care for my fellow man nor the driver of personal insecurity. Writing this blog has left me neither left nor right. Neither pro or anti Capitalism. Merely with a deep undimming hatred of the neo Liberal consensus but almost more on the grounds of its anti thought. A form of narcissism based on self gratification as well as the sheer idiocy of the World Economic Forum, IMF, ECB and Bilderberg view of the world.

If people wish to take back their lives and countries they should consider removing themselves from what Govt provides. Govt is a captured vessel of the Wealthy as even the so called Leftist manifesto of the Labour Party showed. Labour for their part represent no one. The problem is that as people we have become atomised. Indeed with the push to take people off 100% benefits into subsidised transfers of money to the wealthy via low paid jobs people’s time to organise is reduced.

Nonetheless there are answers from using cryptocurrencies and creating your own local economies businesses. These of course require people to get together as communities and rob their landlords and masters of economic power. Does this happen anymore? Or do the poor sit at home watching a constant diet of neo Liberal propaganda and insults like Masochists? I am skeptical.

Yes you can march in London and feel the warmth of masses only for the media to point to some trivial sacrilegious vandalism whilst Labour politicians who killed upto 1200 people in one health authority or backed murderous pointless wars that have killed 100s of troops and thousands of civilians, and let perverts at GCHQ spy on intimate webcams get tough questions about their poll rating. Or Tories who have not yet mastered wiping their own arses [Grayling] and killed many with a Health reorganisation that cost Bns and continue to pump subsidy to fossil fuels which is aimed at making Labour’s slaughter of the sick look like a chimp’s tea party.

Sure we can continue to wax about policies like Land Value Tax and Debt Jubilees and other eminently sensible stuff but it can hardly happen in the teeth of a febrile media controlled by the neo Feudal pigs at the trough. We can’t look to the next Labour Govt as any different to the current Conservative one in terms of anything but steepness of descent.

For me disengagement is the way. When the enemy is stronger withdraw as Charlie Sheen said in that movie.

Were it not for polls I think I would have assumed this was quite a hard election for the Conservatives to not win. The economic good news may not survive a decent economist’s gaze but since when did they have any say. Sure poorer workers actually trying to work hard and earn know it’s a load of bollocks. People like me know it’s an unsustainable subsidy bubble where debt subsidises shit companies like Tesco. However for many exposed only to national media and the BBC this narrative of growth is fixed.

Farmers, Bankers and City workers, Large Corporates, Tax avoiders, Oil companies, outbid bearded rail franchise holders, landlords, owners of valuable property, Housing Association tenants etc is surely a thick end of the 24% of the populace who voted Conservative – the rest just brainless tarts who think that they can be rich and all former groups earn their dosh. Just as until Brown lost them in an incompetence fest had public sector managers, well paid public sector workers, Scots, Tax Credit families etc.

As it is an illusory boom that is only fueled by immigrants (per capita it reeks), has a productivity no show and funded by large amounts of debt please do not expect me to respect this judgement by the populace albeit with little actual choice and a positive economic narrative 24% of the electorate may be seen as unconvincing..

I think the irony with the Conservatives is that I could given a choice of Labour or them back them if they stood for what they claim to. If they meant they liked the NHS or at least the concept of free Education and Health. If they believed in market economics and not the mass subsidy model that extends Govt Power and loads debt on hardworking taxpayers and even the ones who steal their pay. If they had even the remotest belief in freedom.

Sadly the Conservatives are a con. They stand for Feudalism and the stoking of land prices and rural subsidy at the expense of the environment and indeed the land itself. They stand for rentiers as they seek to take housing assets into the stratosphere with subsidy. They talk Austerity yet match Brownian profligacy with subsidy to all those groups and fossil fuels. Cameron’s greenest Govt ever is paying oil companies whilst the price is low and trying to turn the UK into a fracked waste land. They support the banks laying waste to our productivity and the SME sector. If you’re a small businessman who votes Tory you’re an idiot (or your [sic] an idiot as you would write it). They stand for fraud and tax evasion.

They support the same nonsense as Labour of nationalising debt and trying to extract all taxes from the hardworking families they so patronise. They pay off the babyboomers whilst reducing normal people to foodbanks. They hand power to MI5 to spy on us and on behalf of large banks and corporates. None of this will create a free society or even a working economy for the vast majority of us. They toss subsidy to Coca Cola via the aid budget. To BAE for weapons that don’t work. HS2 threatens to match NHS PFI as a historic waste of money and graft.

The Conservatives are a conceit of ideology some say but it’s worse than that they are feckless fools who are either: sociopaths who just want to inflict misery: idiots who believe they are following an ideology: or just plain feckless creeps in it for themselves*. Labour patronise the Tories damn the poor but it all comes from a ludicrous conceit reinforced by the education system that they are better than the next person.

First up in why you should not vote for a party is The Greens.

Now I confess I am between the Greens and Lib Dems the Kippers, Labrats and Conmen not for me. However I believe in lacerating and being critical of even those one favours and whilst I believe in Man Made and Man Preventable Climate Change and am against Austerity as both moral and economic shittery the Greens are the only one of the 5 mains in England similarly minded.  Continue reading »

So one of Osborne’s mates is on crack and cracks on prostitutes. No wonder the latest idea is to hand builders money if first time buyers buy a property. It’s to be sold as a subsidy to the buyer but that is bunk. One way builders found round mortgage rules was to sell houses for 80% asking price and then a 100% mortgage became 80% on paper. This is therefore somewhere between gerrymandering and fraud.

Either way just another example of how neo Liberals use the state for their own purpose be they Brown or Osborne.

Today I’ll stick to their Economics. This is very simple but is the policy of almost every Western country and is the kind of idiocy imposed on the Greek people.

The key tenets are:-

Subsidise & Nationalise Debt:- If the Banks or large corporates get in trouble they are not nationalised only their debt. Also guaranteeing loans and deposits as a massive form of hidden subsidy – tax breaks too.

Monetize Everything:- Privatise or use devices like PFI (UK) to turn Govt services into a stream of rentier income. Paying Financiers considerably more than Govt debt costs would seem insane but it’s the policy of Labour, Tory, Kippers and Liberals.

These policies are obviously unsustainable and defy left right comparisons. They are pro Capitalists in the sense of being pro certain Capitalists but not by use of Capitalism. It is consistent with running society for the wishes of a few rich people and stifling creativity. It’s trying to freeze the world in 1999 if that reminds you of anything!

A sobering week in which the UK’s ruling elite tried to subtly differentiate themselves from the Saudis. Not because they wanted to but because despite the press largely being apologists for the Saudis there is only so much lipstick on pigs will achieve. Thus meaningless clown Prince Charles is dispatched to the funeral of a man who the last 3 Govts have fawned over to buy weapons*.

Believers in freedom will note how our leaders fawn all over a vile country which represents values they mendaciously claim to despise. They claim to be appalled by the ultimate expressions of Saudi ideology in the likes of IS and Boko Haran whilst supporting it! They throw our troops to pretend to fight this ‘threat’ when all that matters is the Black Gold. Such slaves are they to Saudi they choke off attempts to move away from Oil as a fuel.

The neo Liberals (Lib Lab Con) go even further and use a terrorist threat that is a byproduct of their support for Saudi to bring in the kind of authoritarian society they desire here by trying for Saudi internet policies.

* How in hock is US Govt sending POTUS? This after their surrender following 9-11 by removing their bases from Saudi and starting wars as bin Laden asked them. Or maybe Major, Blair, Brown and Cameron should be there in reality. Netanyahu can’t go but sure he’ll be there in spirit with his allies at this time of loss.

Policy in the UK is now formed by trying to say something to appeal to voters primed by the Establishment media. This is as true of the so called Opposition as the so called Coalition Govt. Essentially policy is played by appealing to reactionary elements like myself in marginal constituencies unlike myself.

Thus the Conservative Home Secretary and Prime Minister proposed 2 of the window lickingist stupid policies ever – ever is meant literally there. Making Blair’s drag people to a cash machine and fine them on the spot look like the ‘Rope A Dope’ of political ideas. The first was a suggestion that to correct purely a silly target for net migration we should drive foreign recently graduated people to the airport and kick them out by Theresa May – an idea of such deep idiocy even George Osborne had to rule it out. This was then topped by David Cameron’s suggestion we ban encryption that the security services cannot break.

It’s frightening that MI5 asked for that. Computer Science is a plus in the UK and this would have been another really stupid policy that destroyed business who could no longer protect themselves and would have to go offshore. Do MI5 so little understand computing they would ask for that? That is probably why these frozen pole lickers want ever expanding databases as they have no practical ideas to combat people who would do harm?

It does leave you wondering if the UK can survive with a governing class drawn from people who demonstrated extreme conformism when entering Oxford and Cambridge at 18. Not to mention how much power MI5 has got by allowing paedophiles to serve in the Govt.

This is not a demand for Coal or indeed a desire to go back to the days of deep cast mining. Having all but stopped coal production in the UK to now go back would be insane. Why would we in the era of AGW being the accepted science of Govt and main opposition go backwards? Leaving aside the issue to some fact to me of Climate Change. Why would anyone want the pollution and particulates if nothing else. Talk of Clean Coal is like fat free Suet.

Yet what prompts this blog is that even with 0.5% base rates the UK Govt has apparently guaranteed loans to the oil industry. That and generous tax breaks leads to the question Why? When rates are low only strategic industries should get subsidy, especially in an era of alleged Austerity. To pay for pollution and carbon release defines insanity?

Only a few weeks ago Fracking was still being mentioned in the budget by Osborne. In Norway’s not so much,  fracking gas reserves were estimated at 83 Trn Cubic Feet in 2011 by 2013 the more realistic figure was 0 cubic feet. It’s a technology that does not deliver and any Americans who think it will last to 2030 never mind 2040 as POTUS says, haha.

Equally it is only generous subsidy that allows the lunacy of BP to try to drill for Oil in the Gulf of Mexico and North of Scotland. That its lax attitude to human life added 11 deaths to the 15 murdered in Texas prior can be added to the sheer stupidity of subsidising them to do anything. Yet no fear the UK Govt still subsidises BP deep water drilling – BP also involved in Currency [FX] fraud we now find. The point being apparently it was wrong to subsidise nationalised industries to make Steel and Coal yet we will subsidise the uneconomic environmental rape of Fracking and Oil exploration. Activities so uneconomic even with Base Rates at 0.5% they cannot get funding without subsidy and with the Oil price dropping are not economic even with 0 cost of capital thanks to the subsidy.

It’s 30 years since the miners strike clearly Cameron and co would have been on Scargill’s side had he been a private company head with a credo of corporate manslaughter to his name.

Immigration raises it’s head and the main parties policies may be best described as moronic. The concentration on benefits is political and as with the austerity cuts probably going to cost more than it saves. The point is the swivel eyed of Migration Watch may not like immigrants and try to put lipstick on why they don’t but their view is rational to a point and I accept widely held.

The response of the neo Liberals is cloud cuckoo land. It’s jumped the whale. It’s ridiculous. The clear point is as much as we would wish it otherwise the neo libs’ policies of selling off council houses, creating asset bubbles and a rentier economy, privatising public services and their desperate desire to monetise the NHS and Education, without calling it privatisation, means we cannot expand services or build more infrastructure except at exorbitant cost. Make no mistake the reason that the UK could not cope is not lack of land or lacks of natural resources or opportunity. It is it conflicts with the aims of the major political parties.

LibLabCon should really form a single party and stop lying to us there is any major difference in policy delivery and that they stand for something. At present on Immigration and other issues they say we can have our cake and eat it but it’s very unclear what if any cake they are talking about.
