Will it make it easier on you now
You got someone to blame
U2 One

It’s said by some that Socialists eventually run out of other people’s money. With neo Liberalism it’s might be people to blame – if that is possible.

Its central construct is that all taxes and debts are the responsibility of taxpayers. The problem with this construct is it requires low interest rates to support the resulting debt mountain caused by transferring assets/subsidies to and inflating assets of the wealthy and debt to the populace. It requires Govt to cut back everything else to take on more debt from companies.

Thus with no solution since taxing the wealthy and rentier incomes not wage earners would be as anathema as it would be good Capitalism we have to blame someone and subject them to below normal standards of humanity, as after all it is their fault. Hence the unemployed who receive £2.4 Bn in Job Seekers Allowance are targeted when RBS gets that every year just in direct subsidy. There is talk of the health service not treating people who [over] consume legal products like cigarettes and foods designed to make you over eat.

In Europe the Greeks are targeted because after being imposed an unworkable deal, as the sane members of the IMF accept and the insane Lagarde does not, their economy is tanking. Europe seems to want them on a drip feed so they can never grow. This will of course involve selling off their assets cheap to the Wealthy and turning public services into a stream of income for German pension funds. Now because their debt has been nationalised by ECB and EU Govts they are subject to the political whims of economic illiterates who get elected pimping people to blame! For all the talk of Game Theory by Greece the only people using Game Theory here are the neo Liberals.

After the Greeks it will be Italy and Spain. Maybe the worry is if Greece gets a sustainable path they will want one too not one that ultimately leads to subjugation. Equally it could be any perceived positive for Greece will lead to the election of Govt’s less committed to blaming their own people and delivering the anodyne world for the majority that Christine Lagarde, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Gordon Brown and Tony Blair see as so desirable. The end result will be poverty the norm but if you join voluntary work camps you’ll get a bowl of rice after all your poverty is your fault. Conservatives go along with this nonsense too I think partly because it is veiled in the language of The Market and involves hating on the poor but also because for all the bluster and fibs they love to run all powerful States too.

Of course as said the neo Liberal world will be all about equality and as long as you’re not poor or a woman you’ll be OK or enough of you to vote correctly any rates.

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..

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.

Ed Miliband blew it. He gave the game away. His New Labourness broke through. His lack of belief in anything but jack booted kow-towing to the state came out. A true son of Gordon Brown or brother to Barack Obama who jealously views Kim Jung-un’s power and deifying media. To suggest we would ever have guards on the Scottish border merely because they voted to leave the UK is gravity defying stupidity. To even think like that is the view of frankly a jilted lover or a lunatic.

It may be a tremendous irony that Scotland may reject Englandshire as my man calls it because of the damage and lack of hope wrought by 2 sons of Scotland: the once seemingly well meaning but merely marginally nearer reality Al Darling: the vicious people hater Brown. They will reject the strain of Labour that builds hospitals at 10 times what they should cost and then lauds its magnanimity and expects grovelling respect from us Plebs. This is what irks the otherwise dead from the neck up Miliband the sense of personal rejection of his monetised neo liberal subservient society by the Scots.

Scotland rejected the Tories long ago a substantial or even majority Yes vote is a rejection of Labour and no wonder.

She apologised sort of for something and at 30 grand a second Maria Miller shoved the middle finger up at everyone. No doubt as with drones and treating the whole populace as criminals she and her ilk will claim it is legal. It’s of course a nonsense. Legal as in the people who front whatever runs the country determine not to pursue it. They claim the massive fraud of the 2008 implosion was legal.

Argue about Snowden and the banana brains and shills are reduced to arguing what he did was illegal and what the Govt did was not. As though the law which is changed almost every day and relies on enforcement is an arbiter. It’s a fallacy based on Legal=Always Right and  Illegal=Always Wrong. Indeed that is preposterous as people who play head phones loudly on a tube prove, the fucking pricks. The fact is she claimed for a mortgage that allowed her to make a million quid for a home she did not live in. She’s a vile cunt and that stands whether she is a criminal or not as determined by her friends like the Justice Minister and the dumbest fuck ever Chris Grayling.

Maria Miller is a vacuous bag of greed and as with Baroness Warsi one wonders if her ministerial career as of all things Culture Secretary is down to the need to pretend women have careers at Westminster – Miller is a vulture not a culture vulture. As with Gordon Brown by sacking women of ideas to employ stupid minorities and women you merely perpetuate prejudice.

Why does David Cameron and others make up stats and complaints about new immigrants? Is it because the economic argument is one way. Indeed why do people make specious economic arguments against immigration when they are clearly fallacious or so atomised as to be irrelevant to the subject as a whole? Why do they invent crud like Health Tourism? Now we will charge furriners for A&E a bureaucratic nightmare and is Cameron really suggesting people come here to have Accidents and Emergencies!

The answer is of course the British are ill advised and wrong on everything as a survey showed. It’s why the poor are blamed even though they actually cost less than even healthy pensioners say. That 10s of Bns is given in subsidy to BAE Systems, Train franchises, PFI payments, Banks  etc as Iain Duncan Smith [IDS] tries to scrape a few 100 Mn off the unemployed! IDS a man who lost the leadership of the Tory Party by paying his wife.

It’s why the BBC, Guardian and Mail for all their pretense are state media – The Times does not even try not to be seen as State Media. The vast majority of their output is within the bounds of Polly Toynbee a person who equates support for Rendition Labour with her own goodness and John Redwood a man who does not know the words to the Welsh National Anthem. i.e. a pro Finance corrupt political centre which seeks to monetise at low prices valuable state assets as a sustainable economic policy!

Even smart Lab rats on Twitter were squeaking that the Daily Mail had lied about its editor’s kindred spirit the execrable Gordon Brown and printed a retraction.

Brown’s period in Govt he was a key figure in starting illegal wars, overseeing torture and rendition, the rape of the public services with PFI, ramped up the point-less Afghan war, covered up deaths as a result of NHS policy, had underlings smear opponents in his own party, brought in disastrous  City regulation, cut ridiculous sweetheart tax deals with anyone, reduced women to 4 members of his cabinet, followed policies dictated by Brooks and kindred spirit Dacre and did not assault anyone in that way.

However he did not fiddle his expenses so that’s alright then. It’s a measure of the Mail’s idiocy they would smear someone who must be close to un-smearable

The news that financial product and debt junkie or at least as painted as such Larry Summers had as much chance of leading the Fed (Chairman of the Federal Reserve) as John Kerry of winning an award for insight leaves questions about the judgement of the President who proffered him. It’s clear that for reasons of being tough and strong leaders do not communicate outside their circles and hence policy tends to be a pastiche of an idea which has some currency in the real world. Nonetheless Mr Obama and his team appear to have missed the 200 foot high sign above Summers’ head with the word A-V-O-I-D flashing in gaudy Orange.

Of course I am making excuses for President Obama as someone joked the other day Obama and Bush throw babies over a cliff. Democrats call Bush cruel and inhuman and suggest Obama was badly advised. This is the constant refrain from supporters of the ‘Crats and most loathsome Labour fans in the UK about Brown, Miliband, Darling and Balls who bankrupted us.

Just because someone joins ostensibly the most liberal party in their attempt to fulfill their ego does not make them nicer or indeed better people. Quite the opposite they make their career decrying the Conservative agenda then put it into practice – downright dishonest. Thus if the fault is Mr Obama’s wider team who appointed them? Why does he continue to personally back torture and state bullying of whistleblowers? If it’s a Republican we may rest assured the blame is personal.

I like the persona of Nick Clegg (Brown was beyond likable albeit Labour fans pretend) but his actions suggest he is amoral, at best, even if there appears an absence of spite or malice.

The only valid counter or mitigation is these highly educated wall flowers are morons.

Either way I won’t be voting personally for them.

In the run up to the 1997 Election with the economy stable the savant Brown decided to say he would follow Clarke’s policies. Which he did up until 2001. This he supposed would quieten the so called markets and the press and it was successful. Also whilst the Major boom might have been joyless it was working and certainly not as joy-less as the money/debt illusion boom of the new century.

This based on Balls appearances the other day would appear to be Labour’s policy again. Only this time they are accepting economics no one sane on the right or left would take seriously. A withering austerity that threatens to leave millions in poverty and a society of indentured servitude for graduates and mortgage holders. A society where free expression and thought will be sackable offences.

Why would Ed Balls who pushed massive stimulus 3 years ago, along with kicking out the immigrants, to be leader of the Labour Party now be in favour of austerity? Can we conclude that the master of failed City regulation and PFI fraud is a broken man? A cuckold of Miliband? Having to peddle a line drawn up by the moronic prejudice of  focus groups of floating voter flotsam?

Either way only a few technocrats imposed by Germany on Greece, Spain and Italy with Labour, Liberal and Tory parties in the world now support this economics of Austerity. Whilst I dislike Balls intently and think him a functioning moron nonetheless like Vince Cable you have to wonder if to his panoplia of faults being a gutless self first career creep may be added.

No wonder Osborne sponsored his marathon run. They agree on almost everything.

John Major followed her and was the last pragmatist. Since then we’ve had a grim trio of greedy venal narcissists in Blair, Brown and Cameron. By comparison she looks a paragon of doing what she actually thought was right not just right for her and her family’s future wealth although clearly Mark Thatcher was well rewarded. I’ve clearly removed any doubt her premiership was anything but poor in results here but am ambivalent at the hate figure of my teens.

Whilst the current precipitous state of the economy could be traced from the Thatcher years they did not have to become disastrous but for Brown’s chancellorship with its fellatio of the Banks. This nailed Britain to becoming a declining power with an Italian 1970’s currency. Whilst themes from her era and mistakes still haunt us it has been the hubris and extension of them which has hurt us so much. It is the belief she did much right that is wrong.

You can hardly blame Thatcher anymore than Keynes for the stupidity of Gordon Brown and Ed Balls. She died today long after anyone should care either way she just was not that good or bad 20 years on.
