#G0613* – Mr. Brown Went to Town & LOST US A FORTUNE!

Posted by Greg Lance - Watkins (Greg_L-W) on 28/09/2011

#G0613* – Mr. Brown Went to Town & LOST US A FORTUNE!

Hi,

clearly it is considered by the author of the article below that The EU made the biggest blunder but there were two far worse!

There was the blunder of Biblical proportions when in the process of inventing a new bronze age god it is claimed that 3 wise men visited his birth within days bearing gifte – Firstly there was little original about this birth as there are at least 20 births to virgins after visitation by so called angels or holy spirits giving rise to the birth of various gods long preceding the claims of Jesus and most of them were cruxified and rose from the dead after 3 days and had a connection with The Winter Equinox (now called christmas by some!).

To have been caught on this old story was far from the actions of a ‘Wise’ man! Further had they flogged off the Frankinsense and Myrrh and bought gold that together with the gift of gold could have been invested in the building society at base rate on an annually compounding basis and the gold they would have accrued for their own descendents would have now been a block the size of the moon!

Some wise men! In fact there is no record in the story as to what happened to the gift – in fact there is absolutely no contemporary record of either the birth or the existence of anyone called Jesus of any note and Christ was just a title meaning saviour – the Romans kept meticulous records!

Was he just the symbol of the end of the era of Taurus which mythology started with Moses and the destruction of the Golden Calf, and the start of the age of Pisces hence the fish sales logo the 12 fishermen as apostles and the new era which is now ending.

Just another myth introduced to control people using the previous myths of gods with their commandments and controls – when you consider the source of the 10 commandments as neing extracts from the Egyptian Book of the Dead and 10 of the 12 commandments of Zoroaster.

As I said – Wise men!!!

Then we have Gordon Brown whose economic blunders were staggering starting with surrendering control of the economic levers to The Banks, clearly he lacked the ability to manage the sweety money in a school Tuck Shop! He then went on to sell off just over 400 metric tons of gold at the worst price he could get, by announcing sales in advance – he obtained rather less than $280 an ounce when we have seen gold at $1,926 an ounce and even now on a fall back position it is over $1,650.

Not content with this idiocy he clandestinely linked these United Kingdoms into propping up The EUro which was from the very start quite clearly nothing more than an accident looking for somewhere to happen!

Gordon Brown then disasterously failed to control the banks he was resoponsible for and authorised the buying of US Junk debt that even the US would not handle and thus Gordon Brown, largely through Northern Rock and his chums in Royal Bank of Scotland destroyed the economic base of Britain.

Even agreeing in the midst of this crisis to hand over control of Britain to the corrupt and malign EU through signature of The Lisbon Treaty and agreement to raise VAT to 20% – Some may remember Harold Wilson’s infamous Labour speech about ‘The Pound in your pocket …’ well we all know that was the start of Labour’s destruction of the British economy – with Gordon Brown’s last action meaning The Tenner in your pocket was only worth £8 as 20% was his new rate of EU Value Added Tax!

You will find the background to Labour’s idiocy of interesting as it was written in April 2011 just a month before the British peoples resoundingly booted the crooks in Labour out of office!

One of the great asset management blunders of all time has to be the
EC’s decision to sell its gold reserves in the wake of the launch of the
Euro in 1998. The decision led to the fairly rapid sale of 3,800 tons of
the yellow metal at an average price of $280/ounce, reaping about
$56 billion, according to the Financial Times.

Today with gold at $1,500/ounce, the stash would be $300 billion.
On top of this, the Swiss National Bank is poorer by $70 billion, after
offloading 1,550 tons of the barbaric relic. The large scale,
indiscriminate selling depressed gold prices in the early part of this
decade. It is a classic example of what happens when bureaucrats
take over the money management business, ditching the best
performing investment on the eve of a long term bull market.

The funds raised were largely placed in poorly performing national
Eurobonds.

Where did all that gold go? To hedge funds, gold bugs, and
inflationistas of many stripes, despite the fact that long dreaded
price appreciation never showed.  The good news for gold bugs is
that these reserves are largely drawn down now, and future
selling will trail off in the years ahead.

The shrinking supply can only be positive for prices.

#G0600* – The Economy Politically Past, Present & Future

Posted by Greg Lance - Watkins (Greg_L-W) on 20/08/2011

#G0600* – The Economy Politically Past, Present & Future

Hi,

in a discussion regarding the current political and economic situation in Britain it is worth remembering as we approach the last 1/3rd. of August that since the start of this month, due in part to the fact that the British Government has lacked the competence or courage to announce it is no longer prepared to make any efforts to bail out the Countries that sequentially fall into the black hole created by the near total failure of The EUro.

It is worthy of note that the economy has collapsed by around 15% in that time being a sum of around £200 Billion.

How long can we sustain such catastrophic outcomes of the mess left to this Government without taking radical and remedial action – without which it can not be very long hence before the burnt out core of our society as a member of the ravening hoard will be the ONLY chance of feeding – think Mogadishu, Famine & Somalia.

Also we must announce the fact that for survival purposes Britain is closing its borders to the ingress of aliens via The EU and will be steadily reducing its population by repatriating those aliens that were forced upon us as a result of our misguided membership of The EUropean Union.

Our Government should also announce we shall be repatriating all aliens to the EU who are existing on benefits and subsidies and will be billing Countries of origin for all aliens in British prisons and repatriating their families for the care of their native Country until their prison relative has completed their sentence and is likewise repatriated.

Naturally those who are home owners, speak English and are in gainfull employment will after 5 years of such status be entitled to make application to remain.

The British Government should also announce it will be negotiating to repatriate ALL aspects of its Sovereign Independent Democracy, regulation and control of its own borders, agriculture, economy and fisheries.

Similarly it should be announced that Regional Local Government be  it regions such as East Anglia, The South West, Wales, London, The West Midlands or Scotland shal have equal rights over local issues and as much of central Government function will be decentralised with each region bidding on a tender basis to take on the functions of central Government to thus decentralise the residual jobs and duties.

The Government should make it very clear that it will no longer contribute to or be party to any political or regulatory functions of The EU nor continue to pay £48 Million a day for membership of this malign, self serving and damaging centralisation of power and incompetence.

We should announce we are willing to trade with any and all Nations on the planet on an even footing entering into such trade agreements as we see fit, proper and of benefit to these United Kingdoms on terms subject to individual negotiation through our Embassies and will willingly offer preferential terms to those states which wish to make application as members of The Anglosphere to include The Commonwealth of Nations.

Together with a 50% reduction in the size of The British Government and closure of ALL QUANGOs it will of course expose the fact that the Tories inherited an unemployment figure of somewhere between 5 and 8 Million though many were well hidden in the Kleptocratic QUANGOcracy that has been cleverly contrived to seek to hide the fact that many had no meaningful job and also thereby hopefully secure a salary vote in gratitude.

Unsurprisingly the people in the main saw through the scam and resoundingly rejected Labour’s economic illiteracy and fundamental treachery. Save a small army dependent on such charity handouts and unable to face the harsh reality that their persuit of comfort and security without meaningfull responsibility commensurate has rendered them or will shortly render them unemployed.

The deportation of aliens may well suffice to provide real jobs for the work shy who were hidden in Government, nationalised industries and QUANGOs.

Interestingly one contributor to a Forum on which I post said:

Stop passing the buck and blaming other people for the incompitence of tory governments. Perhaps you’d like to open a discussion about the *CUT* storm that Labour inherited in 1974 and 1997?

I felt it reasonable to respond as follows:

Would that be the fact that Labour stated when they had sight of the books having been elected in 1997 that the economic base they had inherited was so sound that they had absolutely no intention of altering anything for at least a couple of years.

Would that be the fact that the economic illiterate Gordon Brown sold 400 metric tonnes of gold for about $250 an ounce when it is currently selling for ober £1,800 an ounce.

Would this be the fact that when The labour Party sold its old Headquarters by use of a loophole in the law they were responsible for they ripped off the public purse by many 10s of £1,000s by not paying the stamp duty you and I would have had to pay.

Would this be the fact that around £270 Million just went walk about unaccountably from the funding of the Dome which seemed to have vanished to family and friends.

Would this be the fact that largely due to deals with their chums the Mittal family and Tatta Britain no longer has a steel industry?

Would this be the fact that having taken over balanced books praised by Labour in 1997 due to their utter economic illiteracy they handed on, when resoundingly voted out of office debts of £4.8 Trillion.

Would this be the fact that when the present Government took over authority they found Labour had left them with a daily interest payment of £120 Million.

Would this be the fact that during the period of the general election when Labour was chucked out they had already agreed to a VAT hike to 20% and the undertaking that by July Britain would announce when it was to be introduced!

Would this be the fact that during the period between being chucked out and the new government taking over Labour utterly dishonestly agreed a deal with their communist friends in The EU that Britain would participate in the bail out of the failed EUro currency which Labour had already spent £Billions propping up.

Would this be the fact that during the labour Government almost 800,000 extra parasites were recruited into Government either as Snivil Cervants or QUANGOs in an attempt to buy a salary vote to keep Labour’s snout in the trough enriching their leadership.

Would this be the fact that from 1997 during those 13 unlucky years of Labour economic illiteracy more public assets were transfered to the private sector than at any time other than during WWII.

Would this be the fact that more Hospitals were sold off to the private sector during those 13 unlucky years than between 1946 when Lord Beverridge’s plan for an NHS was clumsily put in place by a Labour champagne socialist with a card carrying Communist wife and 1997.

I wonder which of this brief list of the facts you would wish to discount to try to pretend that in some way the Tory Party – idiots that they may well be – are in some way responsible for the steadily collapsing value of our currency, the loss of our Manufacturing industry, the demise of the value of The City, the collapse of banking and house prices under Labour, the crass support for the banks etc. etc. – It is beyond doubt that the economic illiteracy of buffoons like Gordon Brown, Ed Balls, Alistair Darling and their ilk.

Damage that was only matched by the staggering incompetence of first MAFF then DEFRA in their handling of the foot and mouth virus for the EU, the handling of lamb exports to france, the handling of BSE, the handling of the government subsidies to help transfer Heckler & Koch to Turket, Rover etc. to Germany, French subsidies to its own aircraft industry, airlines, car industry and transport. The idiocy of the likes of Harriet Dromey (Harman) and her divisive stupidity, the criminality of Peter Haine never seriously brought to book, the lies and treachery of Ron davis, the crimes against humanity and war crimes of Blair and his cabinet.

Just which bit would you wish to claim was in some way caused by The Tories?

Lets not even look at the utter stupidity and corruption of the mikey mouse regional de4volution that has led to Scotland and Wales being no more than one of the 12 regions of Britain that are directly ruled by The EU – Devolution under Labour was an obscene and unscrupulous con.

Perhaps you could explain what it was you tried to present as a ‘Perhaps you’d like to open a discussion about the *CUT* storm that Labour inherited in 1974 and 1997?’

It matters not how many threads you present your threadbare arguments on this particular issue in you clearly have little comprehension of the realities of economics on planet earth!

#G0594* – The GUARDIAN ICM Poll has clearly been influenced

Posted by Greg Lance - Watkins (Greg_L-W) on 04/08/2011

#G0594* – The GUARDIAN ICM Poll has clearly been influenced

New Guardian ICM Poll:
Tories ahead, Labour down 3%, LDs up 4%

Hi,

The GUARDIAN ICM Poll has clearly been influenced by the largely irrelevant storm in a tea cup over phone hacking:
It all looks all to much as if the Police corruption was, as with the police murders very much a product of Labour style of governance.

It is hard to hold the media accountable for paying police for information when it was the job of the police to ensure such bribery did not happen.

As for the phone hacking in what way was that so serious with regard to the media itself?

ANYONE who is fool enough or so insignificant that mobile phones are used who is then dumb enough to leave messages must surely be seen as fair game.

This equates to someone undressing in front of a groundfloor window and then complaining people looked in!

Everyone of ANY intelligence must surely have been aware that mobile phones are not a secure communication method.

I do appreciate a big deal was made of it as distraction therapy from the incredible mess made of the economy by Labour and the failure of the Tories to bring in the cuts essential to manage the reduction of Labour’s debt and reduce government employment by 50% also dispensing with every single QUANGO.

I appreciate that much of the attack on the media is based on anger of the MPs for having been exposed as being on the fiddle and the dishonesty of The Telegraph particularly for having fundamentally lied about secondary allowances based upon a stolen disk of information when Heather Brooke had an FoI in place and was negotiating to produce a responsible story unlike the rancid misrepresentation by the Telegraph which became the style to follow.

It is easy to play to the ignorance of the Left Wing and make villains out of successful men and women and blame Left Wing failures on America because it tends to be more successful being bigger and more incentivised than the left wing would wish.

The polls indicate very little at this stage when you consider because of the misrepresentation of secondary allowances in knee jerk reaction by ‘tribal’ voter a huge last minute protest vote was built up on which, since it was irrelevant EU politics where MEPs are an irrelevance UKIP gained about 10 MEPs as they were heading for a well earned wipe out without the protest vote.

If we are to talk of probity, reliability, morality and ethics there is little doubt that News International should re-launch the NoTW and someone should have the integrity to shut down The Met. & sack a large number of useless and venal politicians.

Greg_L-W.

#G375* – A Completely Unsustainable National Debt = YOU ARE £121,500 IN DEBT + YOUR BORROWINGS!

An excellent documentary & you have 27 days to watch it in so do NOT miss the chance.

Having watched the documentary with little surprise but considerable horror it seemed apposite to use some of the facts therein to start to build on information from other sources – not least of which was the work of Simon Muir – The figures I have used have all been sourced or checked against The Office of National Statistics, The Tax Payers Alliance and for basic info Wikipedia!


UPDATE AS AT MID DAY Monday 15-Nov-2010:

This morning, official UK national debt will exceed:

EIGHT HUNDRED AND SEVENTY-THREE BILLION,
SIX HUNDRED MILLION POUNDS

£873,600,000,000

see <
http://www.taxpayersalliance.com/debtclock/about.html>

Note: including off balance sheet debt, the real figure is approximately
£8tn (million-million), equivalent to about £122,000 per UK Subject.

Dear Editor,
 

I read with sadness, after 13 unlucky years of Labour, the further irresponsible claims by MPs Primarolo and McCarthy and others regarding public sector spending cuts and benefits changes in the media (Bristol Evening Post – Friday 13-Nov-2010 [I note again 13!] 
http://www.thisisbristol.co.uk/news/Benefit-changes-affect-88-000-people-Bristol/article-2882849-detail/article.html ).
 
I would remind your readers that Ms. Dawn Primarolo used to be Paymaster General – her irresponsible profligacy with other peoples’ money led largely to her nick name of ‘Red Dawn’. Not only has her publicly-funded career made her rich beyond the dreams of most of her constituents, indeed most of the electorate, one would have hoped she might, by now, know a little about the state of the public finances!
It seems not in keeping with her economically illiterate associates.
Labour’s legacy is nothing short of fiscal ruin.
Here are the real figures we ALL have to address after the 13 unlucky years of Labour profligacy redolent of Lady Thatcher’s claim: “The problem with Socialism is that it very soon runs out of other peoples’ money”.
By midnight on Saturday, 13th November 2010, the OFFICIAL national debt will be more than:

EIGHT HUNDRED AND SEVENTY-TWO BILLION,
SEVEN HUNDRED AND FIFTY-THREE MILLION POUNDS
£872,753,000,000


The rate at which it is GROWING is roughly the same as:


* the total cost of BOTH Afghanistan and Iraq conflicts,
every forty days,

* the Bank of England‘s gold reserves, in 49 days,


* the budget of the Welsh Assembly, in 35 days,


* the entire Defence budget, in just over 60 days.


or Bristol Council’s annual budget every twenty hours.


The UK has run a budget deficit (i.e. increased our debt level)

every year for the last 13 unlucky years.

This debt currently is well over than THREE TIMES more than it was at the start of those 13 unlucky years.
Even duplicitously trying to buy popularity for 13 unlucky years, by increasing the Kleptocratic QUANGOcracy to create a ‘Salary Vote’, the public resoundingly rejected Labour
I am sure you will have found the numbers above to be enormous however even so they do not include:
* unfunded public sector pensions (including Wales’s & its EU Assembly),

* unfunded state pensions for the whole population,


* Private Finance Initiative (PFI) schemes, which in the 13 unlucky years transferred almost every aspect of State ownership into Private hands that it could,


* Network Rail,


* nuclear decommissioning,


and other ongoing & future commitments.


When these are added-in, the true figure is an unimaginable:

EIGHT TRILLION POUNDS
(£7,900,000,000,000)


This is more than five and a half times our annual National turnover (GDP: Gross Domestic Product).


Per person (man woman & child in Britain), this means roughly:

ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY-ONE THOUSAND, FIVE HUNDRED POUNDS EACH
(£121,500)


Cardiff with a population of 324,800 share of this debt is a ‘mere’ £39,463,200,000


Wales with a population of 3,009,000 share of this debt is a ‘mere’ £365,593,500,000


City of Bristol with a population of 440,000 share of this debt is a ‘mere’ £53,460,000,000.


Manchester with a population of 440,500 share of this debt is a ‘mere’ £53,520,750,000


Birmingham with a population of 1,016,800 share of this debt is a ‘mere’ £123,541,200,000


Glasgow with a population of 588,740 share of this debt is a ‘mere’ £71,531,910,000


Scotland with a population of 5,168,500 share of this debt is a ‘mere’ £627,972,750,000


Labour MUST take the bulk of the blame for this during the 13 unlucky years (the numbers don’t lie, even if the politicians seem habitually to do so), but that’s pretty much irrelevant really. 

Unless this debt is dealt with, our children will almost indubitably ‘enjoy’:

* no pensions at all, of any sort,


* no education funding for their children,


* hyperinflation and monetary collapse,


* no state benefits at all, of any kind,


* no retirement, except for the rich.


I believe this to be an optimistic summary when one considers that not only are these United Kingdoms grossly and obscenely in debt but they are unable to fund the education of their youth, nor feed themselves without import and are unable to fund their own Navy nor provide air cover and further they are committed to paying £48,000,000 per day on a rising and uncontrollable basis to their foreign masters.


In terms of optimism if there is to be any hope and any meaningfull future not just for these United Kingdoms but for our future generations change MUST be radical and hardship will prevail for a generation.


Even so like us, it is probable that our children will die in huge debt. This is through no fault of theirs. It’s a debt that, unless policies change rapidly and radically, might NEVER be paid off.


A debt which will bring misery and hunger into every home in the land as we watch our children suffer with no hope and no future.


It remains an urban myth that countries do not go bankrupt: ask any German about the Weimar Republic.


It would seem the only lesson we ever learn from history is the clear realisation that we learn nothing from history but some may remember that The Weimar republic, crippling inflation led poverty, the anarchic rise of Nazi violence and the inevitability of world war was a product of a system of Quantitative Easing to devalue the Mark to fund the immeasurable debt of Germany!


I believe these numbers are actually so frightening that our political leaders, even if they are not themselves in denial, dare not tell us the truth about the scale of the problem, that they themselves have created and hence the lies and bluster of self serving fools like Dawn Primarolo & Kerry McCarthy.


Seen in their true context of the very real debt, the present pusillanimous ‘austerity measures’ look not just banal but ridiculous. The most urgent and important issue right now is why the inane coalition is not doing more, and faster.


We may not like the truth but we, our peoples and our Country’s only hope is unconditional acceptance of swinging and painful cuts together with an immediate commencement of negotiations for withdrawal from the EU – a luxury for bloated politicians that not only can we no longer support but which it is morally reprehensible that we pretend to.


For greater clarity may I commend Channel Four’s excellent documentary:

Additionally you may find this helps to clarify the enormity of our position:

Notes to editorial staff:
————————
 

1. “Deficit spending” means spending money we neither have nor earn.
The rest must be covered by MORE unsustainable borrowing.
The ‘budget deficit’ commonly talked about is ONLY this amount.
It is nowhere close to the actual total of government debt irresponsibly incurred in our name.
 

2. We pay compound interest on all ‘on-balance sheet’ debt, however some of the ‘off-balance-sheet’ debt represents
future liabilities, on which we do not pay interest until that spending becomes actual (yet!).
 

3. Figures above derive from the Office of National Statistics the Taxpayers Alliance, and other official statements on expenditure (City Budgets, etc.).
 

4. None of the above includes PRIVATE debt: overdrafts, credit cards, mortgages, loans, etc. That is on top of the £121,500 which is YOUR share of the nation’s current debt.
 

5. For a straightforward explanation of the scale of this, see:
<http://preview.tinyurl.com/2u7asam> (Channel Four’s recent programme on UK public debt). The programme’s numbers do NOT include ‘off-balance-sheet’ debt, hence, although staggering, are about 1/8 of the full figure.
 

6. It is hard to understand in the light of the facts what exactly students are clamouring about as their education costs as a debt are paltry relative to what they already owe! They will be well advised to seek qualification in something more relevant than Media Studies or European
Studies, psychology or IT (Games Design!).

7. In view of the size of the debt, the cuts on Police budgets and the certainty of a crime wave poverty driven is it any wonder that our Police are merely tax collectors and box tickers failing on all fronts to acquit their duties to the public just as are OUR other public servants
like Politicians.

#G370* – Sorry Mate – ‘YOU OWE £300,000’ JUST THOUGHT YOU SHOULD KNOW!
 
Sorry – actually it is worse than that – I no longer have an income so my £300,000 os going to be down to someone else to pay!

Well we saw THE START of the concentration of minds earlier today – but that will be unlikely to cover the interest at today and as interest rates rise another round of similar cuts will be needed to keep pace!


Soon someone is going to have to address the capital sum YOU owe!

Don’t forget to thank 13 unlucky years of economic illiteracy and numerous anti Patriotic schemes and scams – how else could Blair & Brown and many many of their chums become multi millionaires?


Just think – I’m sure it is just a coincidence but of the 7 donors of £1M or more to New Labour 6 are now members of The House of Lords!


I’m sure The French will be pleased with their two new Aircraft Carriers when Britain has finished building them!


We could of course cancel our membership of The EU and save £48 Million each and every day!

#G362* – A young woman was about to finish her first year of college

#G362* – A young woman was about to finish her first year of college
A young woman was about to finish her first year of college.  Like so many others her age, she considered herself to be very liberal, and among other liberal ideals, was very much in favor of higher taxes to support more government programs, in other words redistribution of wealth.

She was deeply ashamed that her father was a rather staunch conservative, a feeling she openly expressed.  Based on the lectures that she had participated in, and the occasional chat with a professor, she felt that her father had for years harbored an evil, selfish desire to keep what he thought should be his.

One day she was challenging her father on his opposition to higher taxes on the rich and the need for more government programs.

The self-professed objectivity proclaimed by her professors had to be the truth and she indicated so to her father.  He responded by asking how she was doing in school.

Taken aback, she answered rather haughtily that she had a 4.0 GPA, and let him know that it was tough to maintain, insisting that she was taking a very difficult course load and was constantly studying, which left her no time to go out and party like other people she knew.

She didn’t even have time for a boyfriend, and didn’t really have many college friends because she spent all her time studying.

Her father listened and then asked, “How is your friend Audrey doing”?

She replied, “Audrey is barely getting by.  All she takes are easy classes, she never studies and she barely has a 2.0 GPA.  She is so popular on campus; college for her is a blast.  She’s always invited to all the parties and lots of times she doesn’t even show up for classes because she’s too hung over.”

Her wise father asked his daughter, “Why don’t you go to the Dean’s office and ask him to deduct 1.0 off your GPA and give it to your friend who only has a 2.0.  That way you will both have a 3.0 GPA and certainly that would be a fair and equal distribution of GPA.”

The daughter, visibly shocked by her father’s suggestion, angrily fired back, “That’s a crazy idea, how would that be fair!  I’ve worked really hard for my grades!  I’ve invested a lot of time, and a lot of hard work!  Audrey has done next to nothing toward her degree.  She played while I worked my tail off!”

The father slowly smiled, winked and said gently, “Welcome to the conservative side of the fence.”
If anyone has a better explanation of the difference between conservative and liberal or progressive or neocon I’m all ears.
