A) The EU WILL appoint Juncker if Merkel wants it.
TOWER HAMLETS (Andrew Gilligan)
Helal Rahman, a businessman and former Labour councillor in Spitalfields, says that “several hundred postal votes” in that one ward alone were cast on May 22 by people “who used to live here but have moved out to the suburbs. They rent their properties to eastern Europeans but keep their electoral registrations and convert their votes to postal,” he says. This is, of course, illegal.
Days before polling, the number registered for postal votes in one large council block doubled. Seventy-seven per cent of those votes were cast.
Residents and their families told The Telegraph that Mr Robbani’s supporters blitzed the building, signing them up for postal votes, then returned a few days later to collect the blank ballot papers. Mr Robbani has repeatedly refused to deny it. If you wanted to vote in person on May 22, things were often a little more difficult. Large groups of Rahman supporters picketed polling stations, remonstrating with some voters who refused to take Rahman leaflets. The council has received 20 complaints of voter intimidation.
“The congestion charge in London will rise by £1.50 next month in order to remain an effective deterrent for motorists.” (Wonderful news for the rich Arabs; fewer riff-raff on the roads to get in the way of their Ferraris, Maseratis and Rollses …..)
“Qatar issues its warnings on dress to WC.” (Will warnings about homosexuals follow? Which morons gave the WC to Qatar? Oh, I remember: the ones who got a vast bung.)
“Mother of two fighting for life after being thrown from horse when gang of stone-throwing yobs ambushed her on quiet country ride.” (Better give them an ASBO, but don’t be too hard on their “human rights”)
“Carney tears into bankers for spreading inequality: Bank of England governor turns his fire on City greed and calls for more to be done about scandal-hit financial markets.” (This is the bloke who gets a FIVE THOUSAND QUID PER WEEK HOUSING ALLOWANCE on top of his half a million quid salary.)
“‘Property price rises will cause the middle classes to disappear within 30 years, leaving only a “wealthy elite and sprawling proletariat’, government adviser says.” (No worries Eric; you’ll be OK, as will most of the other socialists on this site and of course in Primrose Hill)
“Husband of Meriam Ibrahim, the Sudanese woman sentenced to death for apostasy, reveals his joy over newborn daughter – and horror to learn his wife gave birth with legs shackled.” (Another great Islamic achievement)
“Criminals released from jail after serving short sentences go on to commit a total of more than 1,600 crimes a week including the equivalent of 10 burglaries every day, according to official new figures.” (Thanks for that, masters of our “justice” department)
CLEGG? “Vince Cable accused of ‘treachery’ for failing to stop harmful polls”
Now, is one’s loyalty first to one’s LEADER or to one’s PARTY? Alternatively, is an MP’s duty first to his CONSTITUENTS, his PARTY or his COUNTRY? Stupid question, really …… nobody puts the the former or the latter first these days. Any Lib-Dem putting his party first would ditch Clegg asap. This does not apparently include Paddy Ashdown et al. Brilliant.
And as far as I know, there is no suggestion that these polls by Oakeshott were in any way falsified, so essentially Clegg and his gang are complaining about the publication of the TRUTH. Not that anyone needed a poll to know that, which is that Clegg has led his party to disaster after disaster: tuition fees, no HOL reform, no constituency boundary reform, no PR and of course (as in fact none of the previous actually matters a damn; only winning elections is important) disastrous polls results.
I am minded of Kevin Keegan, who resigned as England manager saying that he was not up to the job. Kinda throws the totally out-of-touch and useless Clegg into relief. There is no point to the Lib-Dems. 80% should join the Labouring Party and the rest the Tories. Presumably all of them are in favour of the vast corruption, venality, quasi-fascism, thirst for Empire, bullying and destructiveness of the EU, so none will of course go to UKIP.
As for the latter, Farage is of course way off beam about handguns, but the problem is, HE SAYS WHAT HE THINKS and bugger the PR. Nobody in their right mind would advise him to adopt this handgun policy, but many in the public nevertheless admire someone who at least has real opinions. The rest only seem to be bothered about winning elections, for which purpose they will say and of course “pledge” anything whatsoever, no matter how delusional and/or full of lies it is. Once they win of course, their only aim is to win the next one.
And it is fascinating about leaders. You can be an execrable human being, snarling, vicious, ruthless, uncaring and so on, but if you win elections, YOU ARE A HERO. Conversely, the nicest, most caring, reasonable and wise leader is deemed to be ABSOLUTELY USELESS if he loses elections. WINNING IS ALL THAT COUNTS, no matter how nasty the leader or how useless his or her ideas and person. That’s why they supported Blair for so so long, even though he was extremely useless and nasty, though with a superficial glibness and vast spin machine that disguised this cleverly for well over a decade. Gordon Brown was always nasty and useless and never disguised it at all, yet the Labouring Party STILL anointed him unopposed! HILARIOUS indeed.
Clegg will huff and puff for a bit and stagger on, but with him as leader the Lib-Dems are toast, and the grassroots know it. He will have to go.
France is a fascinating case. Hollande bleats about “growth and jobs” while unemployment in France continues to increase. Many in Brussels seem to think it’s business as usual, but they forget the French plebs; there is only so far you can push them with this socialist lunacy. And it is not just the socialist party: ALL the French establishment have gone along for decades with high taxes, vast state, bureaucracy and failure to free up paperwork for entrepreneurs. THEY ARE ALL GUILTY, which is why so many vote for Le Pen; NOBODY ELSE is going to change ANYTHING. Just like in the UK. There is no discernable difference either between Labour and Tories, so voting UKIP is the ONLY chance of getting a change, especially from the truly dreadful EU. See Ambrose Evans-Pritchard
Finally, some wise words from David Richards: “Anyone who has studied war, and better still had some experience of it as well, will vouchsafe the need to avoid it in the first place. But history is clear: there will sometimes be no alternative to standing up for oneself, for one’s friends or for what is right. Too many people, the intelligentsia to the fore, are in denial of this inevitability. To explain weakness and cover fragility, forcing them shamefully to talk big but act small, so-called statesmen will repeat the mantra that there is no military solution to a given crisis. That this is errant rubbish is self-servingly ignored.”
Which reminds me; how many barrels of chlorine gas have been dropped on innocent people today in Syria, which could have been prevented by the combined free world with a single airstrike. Still, these are only Arabs in another country; what has it got to do with us?
As I have said, it is all about balance and judgement ….
“Business leaders say politicians must act ‘to deliver reform of EU’.”
“EU crisis talks after populist parties claim big victories.”
“The work of changing Europe must start now.”
Amazing. Rather than treat an argument on its merits, using reason, logic and experience, our “leaders” attribute a value to it based purely on the votes of the “swivel-eyed loons” of UKIP.
Yesterday, none of the dinosaur parties or business leaders thought the EU was worth bothering about – if it is a bloated, corrupt and destructive oganisation, well so what? Let the gravy train roll on; we can alway decamp there and become millionaires if the public reject us (see Kinnock, Mandelscum et al)
Suddenly, thanks to one man actually connecting with real people, it is now PC to demand “renegociation” and “changes” … which of course will ONLY happen if Germany agrees OR if France blows up, as it threatens to do, finally cracking under the weight of “socialist” lunacy.
Isn’t democracy wonderful?
And BY CHRIST how the dinosaur parties HATE it when the plebs actually USE democracy to force changes which are bleedin’-obviously essential and which should have been the preoccupation of our LEADERS. Aren’t leaders supposed to LEAD rather than FOLLOW?
UKIP even got a seat in Scotland! So we managed to put out of joint the noses not only of the dinosaurs in England (I include Clegg, even though he is more analagous to an toad) but also that of Mr Salmond. And UKIP won votes across the whole width and length of the UK, except Londonistan of course.
As I may have said before, I really detest the use of the word “populist”. It is unbelievably smug and elitist, but of course that is no more than one would expct not only from the dinosaurs but also many media commentators, including professional journalists wwo should know better. MILLIONS OF PEOPLE are fed up with teh dismissive arrogance of the major parties, and it showed in the vote for the European Parliament. Yet these millions are sneeringly dismissed by the political elite as “populist” voters.
If 56% of the people vote “No” to a PC project such as foxhunting, is THAT “populist”? Or is a vote only “populist” when it is AGAINST a PC project of the dinosaur unintelligentsia establishment? THESE are the questions of language and logic that kids should study in school so as not to be duped by the cynical bastards trying to manipulate people’s minds.
What an execrable campaign the dinosaurs led! I TOLD you Michael, didn’t I? Now EVEN MANY LABOURING PARTY SUPPORTERS apparently AGREE with me. “Milliband led a very unprofessional campaign.” Not only unprofessional, but childish, shallow, insubstantial pathetic and ridiculous. Eric didn’t agree of course, which was in fact a great comfort to me. I would start wondering if I had lost my reason should Eric ever agree with me.
I hope Helmer wins in Newark to keep the momentum going. The establishment scum will no doubt continue to try to drag the debate down to “racism”, so let’s hope the smelly, brainless and populist mob have finally seen through this Goebbelsesque ploy. Will Brown and his shoddy bunch of misfit remnants in the HOC FINALLY agree that Mrs Duffy is NOT a bigot? Just someone fed up with seeing her town invaded and colonized by foreigners WITHOUT HER CONSENT.
What’s going on in Tower Hamletstan? Not exactly very “British” is it. “Neo-British” perhaps. As Norman Tebbit said today:
“I do not share the suprise of many that London seemed to have resisted a big swing to Farage. No doubt Boris was a factor in that, but even more it just underlines that London is hardly a British, let alone English city. A day’s shopping, a ride on the Underground, a visit to a hospital or a school will emphasise that.”
Your starter for 10. In saying the above, is Norman:
C) merely stating the bleedin’ obvious
(You may select more than one letter. Of course, stating the bleedin’ obvious may be (depending on the subject) considered by the leftist, PC unintelligentsia brigade as “racist” and “xenophobic” ANYWAY (which reminds us somewhat of the Stalinist show trials of the 1930s), so on that basis you can choose all three answers ….)
To put it another way, stating the bleedin’ obvious is very often in itself not PC. For example, claiming that anyone sending their kid hungry to school because of some weird religious dogma is not fit to be a parent – or even human (certainly no animal would behave in such a lunatic manner) – is certainly not PC, yet it remains TRUE.
FOOTNOTE: (from a blogger – sometimes the smelly mob comes up with home truths – AND BY GOD NO WONDER THE ESTABLISHMENT HATE THEM FOR IT!
“…. we learn that those leaving the EU parliament – or rather being kicked out by the people are to receive a golden goodbye amounting to £39,000 – and of course will receive a generous pension for their time as a rubber stamp for the unelected elite. The only way the EU survives is by bribery on a massive scale, with generous pay perks and pensions, with 10,000 officials taking home more than our PM is paid (£142,000),on which they pay only 13.4% tax.
FOOTNOTE TWO: Another blogger … but brilliant:
“All we get from the EU is waste, corruption, lies and destruction of nations. Finance, trade and economics are just a side issue to the EU; its only objective is to create a United States of Europe and to these extremists the end justifies the means. We are wise to these lies now, we know what the EU is all about, destroying 28 nations with no democratic mandate and creating a totalitarian superstate.
- They say we will lose three million jobs if we exit, a lie condemned by the author of the Report this figure was taken from as propaganda worthy of Goebbels.
- They say all car manufacturers will leave but omit to say that 70% of UK car production is for UK and non EU consumption and fail to mention the extent to which the German car industry relies on the UK market.
- They bang on about the single market but never tell us that there is zero single market in services , 70% of the EU economy.
- They talk about the importance of trade with the EU but never tell us that uk/eu trade is declining, that EU growth is anaemic and a decreasing part of the global economy and we have a huge balance of payments deficit with the EU but a surplus with the rest of the world.
- They talk about the single market but never tell us EU agricultural protectionism costs us £12 billion a year.
- They say how we benefit from open borders but fail to mention the costs in jobs, housing, state services to the UK as a dumping ground for millions of EU economic refugees, 200,000 Roma here already, 200,000 Bulgarians and Romanians, never refused work permits.
- Then of course they never mention the budget contributions, the tax laws where we cannot tax multinationals in the country they earn income, the loss of our judicial independence to the ECHR which the EU will accede to, the desire of the EU to control national MSM, the gross corruption in the EU, the theft of national sovereignty, the loss of our fishing grounds, the imposition of laws which cost us tens of billions a year.
Britain is better off out.”
You’re right. Your views WERE only yesterday a combination of: little-Englander ramblings, swivel-eyed. racist, xenophobic and downright irritating. Today they are suddenly almost PC, sensible, clear, logical and truthful
WHAT A DIFFERENCE A DAY MAKES!
Once again the lying hypocrisy of Clegg and his peers surges to the limelight, with their holier-than-thou remarks about Farage and his comments about Rumanians. Let’s look at the facts:
Romanians are over-represented in crime as a proportion of their numbers both of the general population and of immigrants.
Middle-class, relatively well-off Rumanians are not the ones who mostly come to Britain. The attraction here is higher benefits and a better chance of finding work than in their own Communist-destroyed country (the furher “left” a regime is the more destruction of course it wreaks on a country mad or unfortunate enough to adopt it)
Some of the crime associated with Romanians and others from the area is very nasty, including people and drug-trafficking. The 200,000 Roma now in Britain tend to content themselves with pickpocketing and nicking money at cash- dispensers.
All this is FACT, and as Farage says, does NOT mean that all Romanians are criminals, only that unknown ones are significantly more likely to be criminals than, for example, middle-class white families. One might wish this were not true, buit it IS, and unfortunately the truth is beyond the capacity of Clegg et al to comprehend. The plebs must not be told the truth or be allowed to spread it.
On that basis, WHOEVER had a FREE CHOICE about which neighbours they would prefer would on balance not opt for immigrant Rumanians. Clegg and his lying scum peers are NO DIFFERENT. They of course have NO FEAR of a large immigrant Rumanian family moving in next to them and can pontificate to their hearts’ content about how morally superior they are.
As for that, it will only be a few years before the establishment elite start living in walled, gated and patrolled enclaves to keep out the riff-raff. This is INEVITABLE given the speed with which the wealth-gap is increasing. The mob is not going to put up with this for ever, It has ALWAYS been like this throughout history. NO SOCIETY with obscene differences of wealth has in the end ever avoided either revolution or fascism and dictatorship, or indeed the one followed by the other.
What Farage said here is TRUE. Once a society refuses to accept the truth – however unpalatable – it is finished:
In a statement, the Ukip leader said:
”The unfortunate reality is that we are in a political union with a post-Communist country that has become highly susceptible to organised crime. ‘Where there are differential crime rates between nationalities, it is perfectly legitimate to point this out and to discuss it in the public sphere, and I shall continue to do so. ‘Police figures are quite clear that there is a high level of criminality within the Romanian community in Britain. This is not to say for a moment that all or even most Romanian people living in the UK are criminals. ‘But it is to say that any normal and fair-minded person would have a perfect right to be concerned if a group of Romanian people suddenly moved in next door. ‘So far as I can see most of those media commentators objecting to this statement are people living in million pound houses for whom the prospect of such a turn of events is not a real one.”
As for Cameron, he is now pontificating about he and his party being the only ones who can “reform” the EU. Once again, he is LYING. There is NO CHANCE that he will be able to achieve significant reform to satisfy we who do not wish our country to be subsumed into a grotesque European federation and ultimately Empire. NO CHANCE AT ALL. The Germans has just SAID SO:
“A leading German politician has warned David Cameron he will be unable to renegotiate Britain’s relationship with the European Union and accused the Prime Minister of a “desperate attempt to appease Ukip” in pledging to do so.”
Still, it’s not all bad news. The Labour Party are finally having to admit that I was right and that Minibruder was a disastrous choice as “leader”. He is now reduced to trying to save his skin by issusing a series of “pledges”, which I expect to come thicker and faster as the election approaches. This is in the well-trodden Labour tradition of :
“Vote for me and you will gets loads of goodies the country can’t afford and which will end up bankrupting us once again but not before we have enjoyed a few more years in power.”
We deserve better than this crap.
The suffering in Syria is the fault of yet another dictator and the free world could have immensely reduced it. The failure to punish Assad for his crimes against humanity (including the gas attack – so much for Obama’s red line; I wonder what Putin thought of that?) is sickening, and Labour’s stance pathetic, cowardly and shameful. We learn NOTHING from history. Hitler could have been stopped in 1936, possibly saving over 20,000,000 lives. The free world is morally sick as well as stupid.
We also have to watch the grotesque spectacle of the soppy, over-privileged cow Michelle Obama sucking up to a Chinese leadership that SENDS BACK DESPERATE FLEEING REFUGEES to North Korea, where they and their families then face torture and often death.
A) China supplies and supports what is by far the world’s most brutal and inhuman regime.
B) China is our great friend and trading partner. Our leaders and/or their air-head spouses go there to pgrovel to its leadership.
You could not make it up.
The EU has many supporters. Some will forever be inspired – as I once was – by a dream of European peace and collaboration. Others may simply be ignorant, and not a few are hopelessly bribed by the vast personal benefits that accrue to EU employees.
However, there is a fundamental reason why I find it impossible to support the EU, and it is the total disconnect between the following two things
A) The EU has admitted that its aim is to create a European superstate;
“Transforming the European Union into a single State with one army, one constitution and one foreign policy is the critical challenge of the age, German Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer said yesterday.” (1998)
… and the euro was a KEY part of this plan even though they KNEW it would fail. Indeed, they hoped it would fail so as to further their project:
“I am sure the euro will oblige us to introduce a new set of economic policy instruments. It is politically impossible to propose that now. But some day there will be a crisis and new instruments will be created.” Romano Prodi, president of the European Commission – 2001
‘“The single currency is the greatest abandonment of sovereignty since the foundation of the European Community… It is a decision of an essentially political character… We need this united Europe… We must never forget that the euro is an instrument for this project.” Felipe, Gonzalez, Spanish PM – 1998
Let’s be clear about this. The architects KNEW the euro would run into trouble and believed it would accelerate the federalisation of Europe into a superstate. The appalling unemployment of young people in particular is the price that the euro’s architects were willing to pay to see the achievement of their goal: not that they THEMSELVES would suffer any of the consequences of course.
Having established this fact, we turn to the second part:
B) NOT ONE SINGLE EUROPEAN CITIZEN OF THE 403 MILLION OF VOTING AGE OR SO HAS EVER VOTED TO CREATE A EUROPEAN SUPERSTATE.
NOT ONE EUROPEAN VOTER HAS BEEN ASKED FOR THE CONSENT TO THIS – NOT A SINGLE ONE.
On the contrary, when individual nations have had a chance to express their opinion in a referendum, many have clearly REJECTED this project as shown below:
However, in EACH CASE, the people either had to vote AGAIN (Ireland in 2008, for example) OR their national parliaments IGNORED the people’s votes (France 2005).
In the UK, people were PROMISED a referendum but never GIVEN one, presumably on the basis of: “We know best and your opinion doesn’t count.” As for the UK, the population collectively has only EVER voted for a “Common Market”, and that was in 1975 when we voted to stay IN after entering in 1973.
I find this absolutely STAGGERING. One of the key aspects of fascism is the foisting on a people of a political system they have not asked or voted for, and in this respect the EU is quasi-fascist. The staggeringly ironic aspect of this is that the EU regards ANYONE who does not agree with its insane project as anything from misguided through irresponsible to neo-Nazi.
And top EU officials consider the plebs TOO STUPID to be allowed a vote. Here is a headline from “The Daily Mail”:
Britons ‘too ignorant’ for EU referendum: Viviane Reding, Vice-president of European Commission, says debate on Europe is so distorted that people could not make an ‘informed decision’. Speaking in London, she said British people must know ‘the facts’ on EU and boasted about how 70 per cent of UK’s laws are now made in Brussels.”
At the same time, the EU assigns to itself the title of “Saviour of Europe”, a title confirmed by the quite surreally-ludicrous award of the Nobel Peace Prize in 2012. The role of NATO in first liberating Europe from its own fascism and then deterring the USSR from attack until it collapsed got no mention at all.
One thing above all puzzles me. The creation of a United States of Europe means the abandonment of national sovereignty. This is a fundamental constitutional step that NO PEOPLES have voted for – EVER. I am astonished that, for example, the French would EVER consider the abandonment of their French state. Yet the political elite is silent on the matter. Very strange.
Will the French even get a VOTE on this? On past performance, not a snowball’s hope in Hades.
For the above reasons, I cannot possibly support ANYTHING the EU does, since it is a quasi-fascist organisation. This is of course apart from the waste, arrogance, venality, bureaucracy and all the rest, which is well documented elsewhere.
The sooner the UK quits this cancerous organisation, the better.
These are usually completely ignored and/or sneered at by the Franco-German Alliance, but my goodness they have just struck two big blows for sanity.
Firstly, Switzerland has decided that having 25% of its population as foreigners is enough – of course bringing down on itself a tsunami of pretentious condescension and whingeing from the EU (I wonder what France and Germany would say to having over 25% of their population as foreigners? Surely there must be a limit? Not in England of course, which apparently HAS no limit, at least as far as the Labour Party is concerned.
But secondly – and equally dramatic and unexpected – little Denmark has banned the vile and inhumane bleeding of animals before they are slaughtered, otherwise known as Halal for Muslims and kosher for Jews.
The UK of course, supinely and cravenly accedes to any old weird “religious” belief in the name of “multi-culturalism”, resulting in the native Brits having to face Halal meat shoved in their faces at supermarkets and the like, but little Denmark has struck a blow for sanity: for the precedence of animal rights over religious lunacy. HOORAY.
But the most sickening, nauseating and gut-wrenching thing about this is that Jews are accusing the Danes of anti-Semitism. Is it therefore the case that ANY criticism of Jews is “anti-semitic”? That seems a fairly ludicrous position to hold. People who object to the barbaric slaughter of animals do not object because they are anti-semitic, but because the practice is BARBARIC. It is frankly beyond belief that Jews should play the anti-semitic card. This is a betrayal of the people who helped overthrow true anti-Semitism in WWII and after. It is an accusation made in extremely bad faith, playing on the Holocaust, which has NOTHING to do with this topic AT ALL.
However, the barbaric slaughter of animals is hardly any different in essence from circumcision, which any objective alien visiting the Earth would consider to be the barbaric mutilation of helpless infants (which is what it is). The fact that this is ALSO allowed in Britain is quite staggering. Supposing the barbaric practice did not exist, and I started up a sect and announced:
“Our beliefs require us to mutilate baby boys. God demands it as part of our religion.”
I would be locked up as insane, and if I actually performed a circumcision I would rightly be banged up for 10 years. Why this is permitted is quite bizarre, and complaining about it is not “anti-semitic”, just a reflection of our disgust at the barbaric mutilation of helpless children. I was going to post a photo of a circumcised baby boy, but it was so disgusting I could not bring myself to do it, even though a picture tells a thousand words.
As For GIRLS of course, circumcision is quite rightly a CRIME, even if one to which the pathetic, PC-sodden and craven UK authorities have until recently turned a completely blind eye, this being another facet of “cultural diversity” (Yes, we are insane.) So if circumcision is illegal for GIRLS, why not BOYS?
As for the practice of male circumcision itself, it is interesting to note that many American Jews are starting to move away from the practice – not before time one would think, after two thousand years and the supposed freeing-up of the human mind during the Enlightenment. From “The Independent”:
The EU of course has stated that the Danish ban is against EU law. So far the courageous little Danes have told the EU where they can stick their law ….
… which all reminds me of how grotesque the EU really is, and how desperate it is to control everything from the centre, like some perverted Empire ….. speaking of which, here is one of my favourite Barrosso quotes:
“Sometimes I like to compare the EU as a creation to the
organisation of empire. We have the dimension of empire.”
Indeed …… and you would make a good Napoleon: short, woffly, pontificating and fascist – but at least his men loved him and he was not short of a brain cell or two …….
There is panic in the corridors of Brussels tonight as the search goes on for an EU apparatchik apparently gone insane. Specialists believe that this individual – frustrated at having nothing of any use whatsoever to do – especially of course anything that could conceivably create any wealth for Europe – has publicized what can only be described as “a cunning plan” as detailed below:
“Bankruptcy should be renamed ‘debt adjustment’, recommends Riccardo Ribera d’Alcala, the EU’s Directorate General for International Policies, who said that use of the word bankruptcy was too potent and made it difficult for people to rebuild their financial reputation.”
Indeed, heaven forbid that anyone should be stigmatized. Shame on us for having stigmatized Hitler in an earlier age. Was his upbringing taken into account? Were his human rights considered?
But this hapless individual – forever to be known hereafter as Mr Debt Adjustment – cannot take all the blame, for euphemismitis is rampant in the EU, partly one suspects to confuse the plebs. Thus it is that we have:
QE = Quantitative Easing, which in Realspeak means of course:
“more borrowing and/or printing of money designed to solve the problem of too much borrowing and printing of money; a cunning plan which has the great benefit of raising inflation to inflate away the debt and coincidentally (but who cares?) stuff the plebs out of their increasingly-worthless savings (Idiots! Everyone knows that saving is for mugs!)”
or indeed my particular favourite:
OFT = Outright Financial Transaction.
Again, one feels obliged to translate this into Realspeak, whereupon we get:
“an ordinary financial transaction (or to be more precise bung of “money” handily printed, borrowed and/or imagined by the ECB) which has been got at by the EU Marketing Department so as to sound more final, decisive and posh.”
Another favourite is:
an SPV = a special purpose vehicle, or in other words:
“EITHER a con designed to pour billions more euros down the euro black hole without the plebs realising it OR Barroso’s new limo specially designed to be resistant to tomato-throwing plebs”.
In any case, all of these brilliant EU inventions come into the well-worn category of “You could not make it up.”
And prompt the question: “When will we see an end to this criminal lunacy?”
Perhaps Mr Debt Adjustment could be put in charge of a new department: Realspeak Production. Then he could no doubt come up with some handy ideas such as:
death = permanent elsewhereness
creative accounting = theft
EU accounts = theft
remunatory readjustment = vast and totally unmerited payrise
The potential is endless.
Germany must accept higher inflation or large parts of the eurozone could be sucked into a deflationary spiral, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development has warned.
This appeared in an article in the DT today, and my reaction in the blog there was as shown below:
YOU CAN GO TO HELL, YOU FFING OVERPAID OECD MORONS.
I live in Germany and why the HELL should I have to accept higher sodding inflation to get Europe’s moronic leadership out of a fix with its fraudulent euro?
And YES, it was a GIGANTIC FRAUD.
“History tells you that monetary unions that survive are those that eventually evolve into poltical unions, otherwise they break up.”
That is EXACTLY what the founders of the euro KNEW, and they launched the euro DELIBERATELY knowing it would fail and that this would then push Germany into this decision. It was an utterly shamful act of Machiavellian and totally undemocratic fraud – indeed, a CRIME against the people of Europe, who had NO SAY in the matter, and when they DID say “NO”, had the decision taken away from them.
This is ALL designed to force European nations into a giant superstate, for which NOT ONE SINGLE CITIZEN OF EUROPE HAS VOTED – NOT ONE. I find this absolutely staggering, and it is the reason why I refer to the EU as “quasi-fascist”, since one of the key elements of fascism is an arrogant elite with too much power deciding what is good for “their”citizens and putting it into place without any kind of popular mandate.
Where this will all end, nobody knows, but it is shameful, and equally shameful is the attitude OF the shameful, who label ANYONE protesting about this as “populist” or “far right”, or in Cameron’s case “swivel-eyed loons”. Actually, Mr Cameron, it is we “swivel-eyed loons” who are doing our best to save Europe from your stupendous arrogance.
Bad enough that the EU mafia and its zealots in the national political establishment treats democracy with utter contempt:
… the EU establishment making Ireland vote again when it voted the “wrong” way
… the French elite ignoring their referendum and passing the Lisbon Treaty ANYWAY through parliament
… the EU/Franco-German Axis forcing out the democratically-elected PM of Greece for daring to suggest a referendum on the the euro for his people and replacing him with an ex ECB/EU/GS apparatchik like some Nazi Gauleiter in 1938
… the EU zealots pushing their agenda for a United States of Europe which NOT ONE SINGLE EUROPEAN CITIZEN HAS EVER VOTED FOR
… the launching of the euro KNOWING it would fai,l but believing that the failure would FORCE European nations to federate (see here: http://www.nemo-insula.net/public/EU/cases/eurocon.htm – Nobody can say they have actually HIDDEN their agenda.)
No, all this is the quasi-fascism we have come to expect from the EU but this contempt for democracy is now spreading into our OWN country:
10,000 postal votes for Labour in this last bye-election in Wythenshaw. TEN THOUSAND people who “can’t get to the polls”? What sort of banana republic is this?
It is well-known that in “Muslim areas” heads of households routinely fill in everyone’s ballot card for them and post them off.
The “secrecy” of a ballot is totally insecure with postal voting; there is no doubt whatsoever that many women in “ethnic areas” have their votes decided by men.
It is staggering that this is allowed. Labour of course, greatly enhanced postal voting KNOWING it would massively help them.
Added to this is the boundaries inconsistency, which massively favours Labour. This is from “The Daily Telegraph”:
“The geography and the electoral map are against the Tories: they need a 10-point lead on polling day to get an overall majority of one seat”. He cites research from YouGov pollster Peter Kellner showing that if Labour and the Tories were to gain an equal share of the vote at the next election, Labour would get 80 more seats.”
The Labour Party would NEVER be elected without Scotland, so in effect the English have their government decided by the Labour-voting benefits-lumpenmass in Scotland.
And the “(West-)Lothian Question” has not been solutioned, just ignored. As it is difficult to solve without their losing votes and power, Labour in particular hope it will just go away – people get bored with stuff so quickly – but it won’t, and English are feeling increasingly angry. And on a point of information, if the SCOTS can vote on whether to be independent why can’t the English do the same? Or indeed whether we want the SCOTS to be independent?
THE FPTP VOTING SYSTEM
This NEVER returns a HOC which is representative of the people. MILLIONS OF CITIZENS are NEVER represented in parliament. This is a quite extraordinarily undemocratic state of affairs. YES, there are some practical advantages of FPTP and YES, PR can be a pain, but the current system is UNDEMOCRATIC.
1951: Labour had the most votes, yet Conservatives had a majority of 15 in HOC seats.
1974: Conservatives have most votes but Labour was given the right to form a government because they had the most seats.
1983: Labour won 27.6% of the vote but 32.1% of the seats. Lib/SD 25.4% of the vote, yet 3.5% of the seats. Yes, Labour won 2.2% more votes than the Liberal-Democrats but 28.5% more seats.
In 2005, Labour won a majority of seats and thus formed a government on just 35% of the vote.
in 2010, Labour and the Tories together got only 65% of the votes, yet still had 87% of the MPs. Meanwhile only 32% of the current House of Commons were elected by 50% or more of those who voted, a record low.
FPTP encourages tactical voting, so that we NEVER KNOW the true wishes of millions of voters, who may have voted negatively to stop candidate A instead of for candidate B, for whom a vote would have been considered “wasted”.
FPTP suffocates smaller parties and thus articficially sustains larger, established ones, which inevitably become ossified. If such a system existed in business, it would be outlawed as hopelessly monopolistic and harmful.
Summary: FPTP means that:
An election NEVER produces a representative HOC.
MILLIONS of voters are unrepresented.
Because of tactical voting, We NEVER KNOW the true party-preferencies of British citizens.
