Two Left Feet : What is Will Straw Smoking?

It didn’t take long for Will “we don’t do attack dog” Straw of Left Foot Forward to, errm, go on the attack.  The editor of the well funded “evidence based” blog dismissed Guido’s story (“Economics for 7 Year Olds“) about the UK being the only G20 country left in recession by quoting the figures from the back pages of an out of date copy of the Economist.

He even made a little dunce’s hat and wittily headlined his piece “Economics for Gui-d’oh  Fawkes”.

Will might have checked a back-copy of the Economist, but it seems he missed the news yesterday that Canada grew 0.1% in Q3, Mexico grew 2.93% in Q3, South Africa grew 0.9% annualised in Q3, and so did Russia. The story was driven by the new data released.  Guido isn’t sure what Will is smoking, but the icing on the cake was the citing of Spain as an example of a G20 country still in recession.  Spain isn’t even in the G20 Will.

Will’s blog is usually pretty good, provocative and produces original content, he really should stick to evidence based positive stuff, the last mysteriously funded high profile left-wing blogger who tried to take Guido on head-to-head made a huge fool of himself.  Will should also know (from his years of spinning for HM Treasury) that you need evidence that is up-to-date. Guido’s story was based on news, not old data or wishful thinking…

    You know there’s a different type of maths in Waitrose (3 items, can’t be much more than a tenner you think and then get to the checkout and it’s mysteriously become£43.67)?, well there’s a special sort of Maths in the Treasury Press department too. I think they use a book written by one G.Brown, whoever the hell he might be.

He’d fuckd the economy, pensions, the £, etc etc before then, and his boss took us into a series of grand scale fucking udicrous wars far worse than George III. These fucking two-bit idots who cry “Thatch!” also cry “Falklands!” Isn’t there some lab looking for live beings on which to experiment?

    Well done Gordon, how much is Afghanistan going to cost us now with the extra cost of the 500. I wonder if the economist want to do a story on the Prohibition of Drugs and the amount of money that is being taken out of Western Democracies as well as the Police State that the Drug runners have built on the back of Prohibition, What a canny way to fuck the Capitalist economy that has given us so much. ASK the Yanks they are specialists in prohibition politics and the shipping of Drugs around the world.

    Oh, did I forget to mention – printing money equivilent to 13% of UK GDP in order to still fail to engineer a single quarter of growth. 4.25% of GDP borrowed in Q3 and the UK still shrank by 0.3%. Strip out the borrowing and we shrank by over 4.5%. An annualised rate of 18%.

    What a thoroughly incompetent jackass.

    Right now Cameron should be planting the seed of a special new tax to return the country to solvency. The Brown Tax. To be listed, by law, on everybodies pay packet and set at 20% which is the true cost of Brown’s utter incompetence. That way, every single month every single voter is reminded of the utter fuckwittery that destroyed the UK economy.

    Mr Venn says:

    The European Union, who is represented by the rotating Council presidency and the European Central Bank, is the 20th member of the G-20. To ensure global economic fora and institutions work together, the Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the President of the World Bank, plus the chairs of the International Monetary and Financial Committee and Development Committee of the IMF and World Bank, also participate in G-20 meetings on an ex-officio basis. The G-20 thus brings together important industrial and emerging-market countries from all regions of the world. Together, member countries represent around 90 per cent of global gross national product, 80 per cent of world trade (including EU intra-trade) as well as two-thirds of the world’s population. The G-20’s economic weight and broad membership gives it a high degree of legitimacy and influence over the management of the global economy and financial system.

    Clarence says:

    “We all hoped so much for Gordon Brown but he bottled it”?

    I didn’t hold out much hope for Brown as prime minister but he has exceeded my worst expectations by a considerable margin. But I am biased because I have loathed him with an almost painful intensity for the best part of a decade. Furthermore, having studied his modus operandi while he was Chancellor, I realied quite early on that he was a compulsive liar, con merchant, oaf, bully and charlatan who wasn’t fit to run a church raffle.

    I now realise that I was mistaken: he is borderline criminally insane.

    Sue Townsend is evidently very stupid or just plain gullible. Or both.

  31. 31
    jgm2 says:

    No he did not. He chose to present it as ‘Guido has better evidence’. Not ‘My evidence is hopelessly out of date and wrong by several months – in fact it’s so out of date if Guido had presented it I would have claimed he was a dunce with an agenda’.

    Another non-apology from a loyal loyal Labour apparatchik.

    Can we use the pejorative ‘Imbecile denier’ for these Labour jackasses. They seem determined to press on with a blizzard of misdirection, misinformation, disingenuity and personal abuse in a desperate effort to conceal the manifest evidence which is that this Labour government is run by utterly incompetent imbeciles.

    I have to say his idiocy has exceeded even my expectations. I had thought that once reality in the form of the inevitable recession wrought by his imbecile policies took hold that he would be forced to acknowledge his incompetence but it seems his idiocy is so complete he seeks instead to conceal them by compounding them.

    So instead of a nasty recession he’s going to turn it into an absolutely enormous depression just so in years to come he can claim that it was just ‘so big’ there was nothing anybody could do. And anyway nobody saw it coming. And anyway it was the yanks fault. And the Tories.

    Criminal. And the Labour Party that continues to be complicit in this wilful fuckwittery is equally culpable.

    Diversity says:

    The 20th of the G20 is the EU. Spain is not a full member (to the chagrin of its socialist, very headline-conscious Prime Minister) but is ‘invited’ to meetings (at the urgent and rather pathetic pleading of that PM).

    Guido’s “blog is usually pretty good, provocative and produces original content,” and he does check his evidence in the way so many journos don’t . In his sober moments, Will Straw must realise that.

    BTW, does any one know if the title of Will’s blog ‘Left Foot Forward’ comes from the old drill sargent’s trick of putting hay in the right boot and a straw in the left boot of recruits who could not tell left from right?

    The UK was certainly best placed to get into recession. It would be hard to imagine a more thorough preperation to hvae a nailed on recession than allowing house-prices to increase by 15-20% year after year, low interest rates encouraging the great British public to go and remortgage and borrow themselves to the hilt and the Maximum imbecile himself borrowing 35bn quid a year to piss into the economy and throw more petrol on the fire.

    I thought, what a fucking tit, that wanker has no clue what he is on about, and he is going to be running the economy? Were fucked!

    Sadly, I was right about that. Just as I was right when I was 95% certain that Iraq had no WMD when we invaded and I was right that there is no valid science behind the “hockey stick” approach to the climate alarmism AGW hypothesis, just as I was right that we were heading for the EU dictatorship that was born today.

    This is NOT bragging. I wish I had been wrong, very very wrong, about those things. I never wanted to be right, but I seek truth from a very wide selection of sources and the evidence supported all these assertions.

    Dave "Cast Iron Guarantee" Cameron says:

    Seamus was walking along the coast of Galway early one morning with a bit of a sore head when he tripped over something in the sand. Reaching down, he picked up a lamp and starting rubbing it. There was a huge crack of thunder, an awesome amount of smoke, and lo and behold, a genie appeared.

    “Mornin’ boyo,” said the genie. “For releasing me from two thousand years of bondage, I’ll be grantin’ ya three wishes.”

    “Isn’t this grand,” said Seamus. “Can I have a pint of Guinness?”

    “Sure of course ye can,” said the genie. And poof! a pint appeared in Seamus’s hand. Seamus starting sipping away at the pint. “For the love o’ Jaysus, this has to be the best pint I’ve ever been tasting.”

    “Of course it is,” said the genie. “I’m an Irish genie, after all, and I do know a bit about pints. Now, let’s get on with business. You’ve got two more wishes left, and I haven’t got all day!”

    “Now just be bidin’ yer time,” said Seamus. “I want to enjoy me pint.”

    “Ah,” said the genie. “That’s a magic pint.”

    “And what do ye be meanin’ by that?” asked Seamus.

    “Well,” said the genie, “as soon as it’s done, it’ll fill right back up again just as good as the first.”

    “Is that so,” said Seamus, finishing off the pint. Sure enough, back up it came, and when he tasted it, it really was every bit as good.

    “Now,” said the genie, “about those other two wishes?”

    “Ah,” said Seamus, “I’ll have two more o’ these!”

    Mary Riddle of the Daily Telegraph says gordon’s two favourite subjects are planetary salvation and economic revival all supported of course by his imaginary moral compass.

    She doesn’t talk too much about gordon’s penchant for car wreck politics though he clearly latches onto disasters in the hope that they’ll make him look like a saviour.

    However painting gordon as an eco-warrior equal to Swampy is a step too far. +++Laugh+++

    She says dave ‘ should be afraid of gordon’s eco-image ‘. Well let’s not forget the revelations of his poodles philjones/lord stern/uea that they are claiming to have ‘lost’ the original data on which they based their outrageous discredited claims for man-made global warming. What a joke!!

    There are now huge doubts over theirs and gordon’s claims for anthropogenic climate change, which they can no longer prove without that original data.

    No Dave does not need to be worrying about gordon’s Swampy image. Dave needs to be researching this subject carefully and reformulating his views on it.

    He might like to consider the Antarctic Study view published this morning that says the hole in the Ozone layer has actually created more ice in most of the Antarctic.

    Britain has been taking in roughly 5-7% of its £1.6 trillion GDP from oil revenue, mainly from N.Sea reserves., that is around £112 billion. N.Sea production peaked 2 years ago. So…UK has gone from net exporter to net importer.
    Since oil revenue supports a considerable portion of UK social spending, what export income will replace it? During this time the £ has devalued by approx. 30%. The lunatic talk from the mad hatters tea party at Nos 10 & 11 of GB exiting the recession in 2010 can be put in the waste paper basket along with ” We are best placed to weather the recession”….
    To break even, the UK will have to carve a slice of domestic expenditure off it´s house-keeping bill of around £200 billions, ( then there is the debt to service.)

    ‘An article by Jack Straw, published in the Daily Mirror (18/1/95), is reproduced below with his permission. In it he gives an account of his own involvement in school bullying – in a group of ordinary boys picking on one of their number, for no obvious reason, and making his life a misery. Burdened by memories of bullying Member of Parliament Jack Straw reveals the shame of his school days: Eight lads aged 11 and 12 in one dormitory – all living together morning, noon and night. It was always likely to happen. It does in zoos. It does in the wild. And, unless you are very careful, or very lucky, it does in schools too. I’m talking about bullying – that dreadfully cruel process by which a group instinctively picks on the weakest of its members and dumps on that individual all the anxieties and fears of the group. It’s 37 years ago that I was one of those lads in a boarding house at Brentwood School in Essex.’

If you believe as others do, that the role of government in our lives has become too great, that the essence of our liberty is being surrendered to the state under the guise of protecting us from imaginary threats, then you most like view Global Warming as a hoax.

    David Cameron says:

    For many years, it has been a widely held belief that the environment is an issue for the left. So I understand why, in environmental circles, the high profile that my party has recently given to the challenge of climate change was greeted initially with a degree of scepticism. The green movement was similarly suspicious of Governor Schwarzenegger in California when he began to focus on the same issue. But suspicion has now turned to surprise, with the realisation that politicians of the centre right are engaged, in earnest, with this most pressing and crucial challenge for our society.

    I shared a platform with Tony Juniper, director of Friends of the Earth, and committed my party to supporting a climate change Bill in the Queen’s speech. Such a Bill would establish year-on-year targets for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by at least 60 per cent by 2050, set in place a legal framework to ensure the targets are met, and establish an independent monitor to report to Parliament on Britain’s progress in meeting them.

    Politicians must work together, nationally and internationally, if we are to develop an effective response to the global challenge of climate change. Our children will judge the current generation of political leaders on our ability to put aside party differences in order to face up to this unprecedented global threat.

    I recently met former US Vice-President Al Gore, whose powerful film about climate change, An Inconvenient Truth, is about to be distributed in UK cinemas, and I am delighted that Republican Senator John McCain, who has done so much to promote a cross-party consensus on climate change in the US, will be coming to our party conference in Bournemouth this October. Rising to the threat of climate change will require more than conventional party politics has to offer

    Blair inherited a growing economy in good shape – he immediately taxed the ‘scapegoats’ (windfall taxes on privatised industries, private pension funds, remember?) and systematically tied up business in red tape whilst (not so covertly) operated a redistributionary tax policy. Now the economy’s fucked and could be in depression for up to 20 years. And that’s not to mention the deliberate systematic politicisation of the civil service, intelligence service, Police forces and the judicial system. And the pervasive surveillance society etc.

    I've planted vines in my garden who do I sue when global warming don't happen? says:

    ‘Take one example. Gore said that the glacier at the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro had melted because of “global warming”. In fact, it had been ablating – not melting – since 1880; and half of its snows had gone before Hemingway wrote The Snows of Kilimanjaro in 1936.

    In the past 30 years, NASA satellites have measured two things that make the attribution of the disappearing snows of Kilimanjaro to manmade “global warming” altogether impossible.

    First, the entire Central African region around the mountain has been cooling for three decades.

    Secondly, at no point since satellite records began in 1979 has Kilimanjaro’s summit temperature risen above – 1.6 °C. For most of the past 30 years the mean summit temperature has been –7 °C. Try melting ice at those temperatures. Its thermal inertia makes melting impossible.

    University of Alabama at Huntsville data shows, there has been no temperature trend at the summit of Kilimanjaro since the satellites first began monitoring it 30 years ago –

    Instead, the glacier has been ablating – passing directly from the solid to the gaseous state of water without passing through the intervening liquid state – because of imprudent and substantial post-colonial deforestation in the region surrounding the mountain, which has dried the air.

    Gore also recited the falsehood that would later be repeated by his producer in her children’s book: that in the early climate it was CO2 change that preceded and hence by implication caused temperature change, when in fact it was temperature change that preceded and hence cannot have been caused by CO2 change.

    Lies about the rate and significance of global and regional temperature change, therefore, have long been right at the center of the case presented to the world, until now with great success, by the international cadre of “global-warming” profiteers and scientific fraudsters that have promoted and pushed and peddled the scare.’

    I understand the reasons reasons that you consider it is no longer worthwhile holding a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty given that it has already passed into law with the Irish Vote.

    May I suggest instead that you ask the British electorate ,in a referendum, once you have been elected, whether they would like to rescind the 1972 EU Act of Accession?

    A study of British history will throw up many examples of ‘extreme’ weather events causing serious loss of life. Storms in the North Sea have breached sea defences on more than one occasion – a dramatic example is documented in the early 18th century (I think), with another bad one in the 1950’s. There are floods in various parts of the country fairly frequently.

    Let the science community SEE the data says:

    The problem I have with the material leaked/stolen from the CRU last week is not with the e-mails. These simply demonstrate that scientists are human, and become attached to their conclusions. The real killer is a file called HARRY_READ_ME.txt, which documents the 3-year struggle of a programmer to try to make sense of a confusing mass of data from thousands of weather reporting stations all over the globe, covering more than 100 years. It should be clear to any computer-science graduate reading this document (caution – it’s 15,000 lines long!) firstly, that there are severe problems with the data on which CRU’s conclusions about historical global temperature are based, and secondly, that their approach to processing this data is so amateurish that the output should not be trusted. Despite this, it seems that the CRU’s conclusions based on this data will inform decisions involving billions of dollars at Copenhagen. “Peer review” should mean that every part of the data and methodology is subject to scrutiny by other experts – this means that all program code should be examined and tested by skilled programmers, not just taken on trust by other climatologists.

    They did a potted summary of this shock-horror-catastrophic-climate-change-we’re-all-doomed-story on Radio 4 this morning, in which they mentioned en passant that Antarctic Ice had increased in volume over the past thirty years, which appears to be true.

    The BBC watered this down in the online article as follows:

    The Antarctic Peninsula – the strip of land that points towards the southern tip of South America – has warmed by about 3C over the last 50 years, the fastest rise seen anywhere in the southern hemisphere, according to the report.

    But the rest of the continent has remained largely immune from the global trend of rising temperatures. Indeed, the continent’s largest portion, East Antarctica, appears to have cooled, bringing a 10% increase in the sea ice extent since 1980.

    Ho hum.

    The former prime minister refuses to offer any explanation of why he is using the complex structures.

    The “fun” thing is that from 1960+ they replaced the tree ring “proxies” with real temperature data at the end of the graph (the one on the front cover of the IPCC “report”) because the proxy and the real measured temperatures diverged so much.

    ” Florida Highway Patrol is still investigating the incident last Friday, in which Woods, 33, was found lying unconscious outside his home in Orlando at 2.25am after smashing his vehicle into a fire hydrant and a tree.

    Officers are examining whether any crime was committed, and looking into suggestions that Woods may have been driving without shoes, which is illegal in Florida, and that he may have been assaulted by his wife, Elin Nordegren, before the crash.”

    Token offering, if you read the e-mails, they were ALL at it, falsifying, lying, bullying and destroying anything that could be used to discredit them.

    AGW is not about science, the planet or humanity, it is all about pure, unadulterated, naked greed.

    Can someone please point out to young Straw that, on his blog, it is the RIGHT foot that is in front of the left?

    Archer Karcher says:


    A rather curiously unsubstantiatable claim, given that virtually EVERY government financed climate “scientist” from proven liar Michael Mann in America ( also suspended ) to Phil “destroy the evidence” Jones, were implicated in the thousands of e-mails among each other.

    Your dishonest defence of these frauds, is as dishonest as the basic “science” itself. Perhaps you are ignorant, perhaps you are stupid, or alternatively you are just another disingenuous liar, like Briffa, Hansen, Jones, Mann, et al?

    Archer Karcher says:

    Up until Lisbon was ratified, repealing the 1972 Act was a possible escape route.

    Unfortunately, repealing that Act would not now change our status as a province of Brussels. The only way out now, is to be thrown out ( highly unlikely ) or to negotiate our way out, a two year process, set out in Lisbon, that allows the EU to set and demand ALL terms of leaving.

    The scumbags have sprung a very nasty trap indeed.

    but to set the record straight at 12.24am top boy was tucked up in bed dreaming of Emily Nomates.
    I dreamt that I was protecting her from all the creepy stalkers and trolls who visit this place and I was stopping the stalkers from getting their sweaty hands on Emily and when they tried to grab her I beat them all up and crushed their skulls and I killed them all and Emily was so pleased with the workmanlike manner in which I had gone about bashing the nasty stalkers skulls that she said she wanted to give me a reward.
    and then I woke up.
    c’est la vie, innit.

    The Spain gaffe is rather embarrassing, and even more so for Brown after he repeated the mistake. I’m beginning to think that there isn’t anyone on the left who can actually do economics. Politics, yes. Economics, no.

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
