    So this is anarchy. Raw, direct, in-your face; a vision of righteous emotion, exploding from the streets to overthrow the bloated capitalist hegemony that has seduced and defiled the world for so many years. I can see it, down there, just between the bollards (to the left), wearing a red hat, standing next to the man with the carrier bag.

    I suppose they would have to be. The working classes are all at work – although I admit it was a clever idea to have the protests during the lunch break. Presumably most of the protestors are people who have either taken the day off to travel to London, or they are not employed.

It has been a long time since I had a mental image of Harry Enfield’s “Loadsamoney” character; I have just had one. It would be great if, instead of waving £10 notes, they waved their bottoms instead. I would pay money to see that.

    The City, circa 1990. Before getting my train I sometimes ued to pop into a pub, the Cannon, opposite the station and patronised largely by men in brown suits from the nearby Sun Life building.

    There only seemed to be two songs on the jukebox: Return to Sender by Elvis and Daydream Believer by the Monkees, which the Sun Life boys thoughtfully made sure were played in strick alternation – all evening.

    Rather than trade conversation they used to sing along while shifting from one leg to the other. They all used to join in the line “…home-coming que-e-e-EEN!” and point at each other in a pissed, unfocused sort of a way.

    Maybe all those unemployed people will pressurise the government to cut taxes on employing people?

    Employers are fined 12%+ of the salary of everyone they employ, then theirs VAT which is another 15% tax on labour…

    Cut those and watch employment soar.

    Then you could start cutting the fine for working currently about 52% (40% + 12% NI), with all the extra money in the pockets of the people that earned it, they’d pay off debts quickly (and lower the debt servicing which is killing the economy) then start to employ people.

    You see, all these taxes on peoples time mean that they have to work twice as hard to employ someone. Credit was regulated into existence (by Basel 2) to try and cover up the disaster that is income taxes, however it’s all come off the rails.

    Government was the cause, and less government is the solution.

    The banks have been nationalised because the government regulated a huge bubble of credit into existence (thanks to the international regulation called Basel 2), which the Banks allocated into housing as they are less taxed than say investing in a business.

    A year….lets be blunt. The last Tory party and the last 12 years of The Labour have
    deregulated the Banks and given them the chance to operate in a free market
    environment. surely this is proper and correct in our fee society. They
    flunked it! If they were in another part of industry they would have gone to
    the wall. This is how capitalism works, how it creates successful
    enterprising businesses. Get it right win and profit, get it wrong and the
    market gets rid of you. This freedom is the core of our society, this is the
    reason the Tories never criticised labour for allowing the Banks the
    freedom. Now the Bankers have made a right mess of it and we cannot allow
    them to go bust. So we have to bail them out. When the dust settles and
    people have time to reflect they will realise the Government had little
    option. They know things would have been the same under the Tories. A year
    is a long time in politics, dont write off the Labour party yet. What will a
    Tory party offer us?

The market has malfunctioned, self regulation has failed. You are an idiot. Why do you find it so hard to admit the bankers are culpable? They are the ones with their bonuses safely salted away, not the regulators. The regulators are like the Keystone Cops and the bankers are like Al Capone. For your information Al Capone dunnit, the bankers dunnit.
    Free market ideologues are the ones that have ensured this crisis is a lot worse than it would have been otherwise. If free markets are the answer, why do you agree to trade with China? It’s just a load of old hocum, the difference now is that we all know it.

    Mind ye, nuthen’s’nae ma fult ye understand!

    [Translation : a posturing arrogant little fool like myself has no right to lecture other people about how to run their business. Especially if that business is banking or anything to do with money. For I, with no useful qualifications in anything, including of course, money, have squandered money like there’s no tomorrow. To be honest, I haven’t got a clue what I’ve done with most of it over the years. Except, of course, it’s GONE!!

    However, I do very much care for that pointy standing up thing in the sky in Guido’s piccy. Both Sarah, the servant girl, – and Peter, my Human Comfort Blanket – seem to like it too. I wonder why.

    And as to families, why, Old-Noo (née Noo-Old) BoringLiars and me have done more to degrade, downgrade, destroy, and denigrate family life than any other factor in history. I have played a major part by making it more profitable to sponge off the state and not bother with any sort of long-lasting ‘relationship’ as us Progressives call it. And our teen pregnancy rates are the wonder of Europe. No wonder they are jealous of me. (Remember girls, you get a free flat and all the frills if you get up the duff. You gotta ditch the guy though, – well he’s probably not hanging around anyway unless he’s a bit thick!)

    And just to show how much we care about family finances, we put the tax up on petrol today.

    But of course, as you would expect, nothing is my fault.

    I think the answer to “Is Gordon Brown insane” is yes.

    I believed he has a grandiose delusional disorder. But having viewed his behaviour around the US president, I believe he may in fact be erotomanic in nature also.

    Therefore, I would say he is insane. In the conventional use of the word.

    The commenter here (comment number 199) may also suffer from a similar disorder, hence the outburst against this link.

    I would probably say a jealous delusional disorder combined with an inferiority complex. He has fixated on David Cameron’s hair, which may suggest that he has some form of baldness or dermatological issue with his own scalp. Certainly something visible to a casual passer-by.

    The general rule is that where people start using crude verbal attacks against others, they often use familiar “tools”. That is, they recognise how hurtful a certain attack has been on them, and they wish to appease the pain caused by it, by using it on others.

    That is why I draw these conclusions against this comment.

    Another interesting facet of the comment is the x = y nature of these posts.

    It suggests that they have previously been mentally scarred by brutal statements in the past. E.g. “Chris is a nonce”. Very short and brutal to a developing psyche, presumably the cause of the continual reoccurance of a similar formation.

    It is obviously someone who was heavily bullied at school and was never able to gain closure through revenge or success.

    I can understand the identification with Gordon Brown – a visually unpleasant man, with little outward appeal.

    I imagine they particularly appreciate how he has achieved his position. That is, subverting the normal course of democracy and refusing to submit to a “popularity contest”. I would suggest that this satisfies some deep-rooted fear unpopularity.

    In short, this person is empowered by the internet’s anonymity and feels capable of mocking those similar to the ones who once taunted him and denied him his youth.

    It is this line of thought that brings me to question what other activities this person may use the internet for.

    This is speculation, but if this were a patient, I would be mindful of mentioning sexual encounters for enraging the individual. The issue of trust would be raised and the doctor-patient relationship would be tainted.

    Since this person is not a patient, I can quite confidently suggest that this contributor most likely frequently uses pornography of a very hardcore nature and has inclinations towards younger girls, or indeed boys. The fixation on male appearances appears to be compulsive but primarily focuses on the individual’s own self-worth so I would probably discount homosexuality in the first instance.

    However, I would register concern as the legality of the pornography in use. It is entirely credible that this commenter uses illegal material.

    The streets were cleared, the cars were stopped. Much amusement was had by seeing the loads of city type clerks come in showing all the world what awkward repressed messed up idiots they are by dressing down and showing us their ‘home’ face. What for?

    As for bringing trading to a halt I think you’ll find that the capital markets have been up clogged, frozen, crunched, in meltdown for some many months now. They only keep going by running to the Bank of England’s ‘window’ every other day to suck on the teat of tax payers money. It’s a crisis of capitalism or some such thing.

    I understand your claim that McBroon is weaker than or powerless against the oligopolists but are you suggesting that the tories, in power or not, are not in the same position ie they either are or support the oligopolists or are more powerful anyway than the oligopolists?

    If the answer to that is yes then what you are implying is that the tories have been the ones truly in power ie in control for the last 12 years and not the ZNL or Mcbroon; is that your assertion? Because that is more interesting than what you normally spout, so you have my attention; now tell me.

    You have to hand it to Sky and the BBC. They have done an exemplory job of news manufacture er sorry coverage on the protests today. They were there when one bloke brakes one window of the RBS bank and mayhem ensues as photographers want to get their shots. They were there to report on the millions of hoodies who constantly broke ranks and upset the police. The police, god bless ‘em survived a torrent of abuse and nuisance and behaved in the usual British stiff upper lip fashion and wantonly beat people over the head with trucheons. The police regularly surged forward pushing people into small spaces, irrespective of whether all of those people were on the demonstration. They held people in small groups despite people wanting to leave the area. Sky and the BBC performed a magnificent task of upholding our democracy ( what’s left of it) by both bolstering police action and suggesting that it’s okay to protest so long as you do so within the set parameters set out by the government and the police.

    This government, the political elites and the establishment have presided over the worst economic crisis for decades. people are losing their businesses, their jobs and their homes. The criminals in power even misuse OUR money on their lavish expenses. yet it is the few thousand protestors who are the problem. This country stinks and the stink comes from the top.

    A passing psychiatrist says:

    “Dave’s Hair”, as you call him, has no relationship with Hannan. Whereas he has created a relationship with David Cameron, albeit a one-sided relationship that only exists in his head.

    This relationship is no less real, even though he has never met him. Presumably.

    Despite his youth, Dave’s Hair views Cameron as some form of parental figure to rebel against. This can often happen with individuals who have had absent fathers. Note that this does not necessarily mean that they were physically absent.

    Also, it could well be an indication that Dave’s Hair’s father was relatively old when Dave’s Hair was born. If he was bald, Dave’s Hair would have viewed this as a sign of his human frailty. It would help explain his fixation.

    As boys with (much) older fathers tend to be alienated from their peer groups more often, this backs the hypothesis of Dave’s Hair being a victim of bullying.

    Dave’s Hair is easily distinguished from those who were bullied at school for being an over-achiever, i.e. a bit of a geek. His language and grammar is underdeveloped and is indicative of an average intellect which has been prevented from grafting during its formative years.
