Silent Pryce Smirks at Points

Given Vicky Pryce is demanding that the BBC did not mention the allegations she made against her estranged husband as a condition of her touring the TV studios to talk about Greece, full points to Krishnan Guru Murphy for sticking the boot in:

Wonder if she smirked like that in front of the police? She might as well have winked to the camera…

UPDATE: Krishnan also asked “The Donald” if he was wearing his own hair. He explains himself here, must be something in the water on Grays Inn Road…

    Moussa, Gordon’s utter destruction of the UK economy did not miraculously unravel and cure itself the moment Gordon left Downing Street for the last time.

    In fact even after Gordon lost the election (getting a million fewer votes than John Major’s historic defeat BTW) labour still signed this country up to these EU bailouts, so all the current economic clusterfuck that we are having to clear-up IS down to Gordon Brown. Thank FUCK he is not in Downing Street anymore. The three years he was PM were bad enough!

    Funny how labour were proclaiming every economic uptick was down to Gordon’s brilliance right up till 2008 crash. The record number of quarters of economic growth (which started under Major in 2002), The global economic boom was largely down to his rules and leadership setting the City of London free to create huge wealth (debt) letting the rest of the global economy follow, Yet when it all turned to shit, suddenly Gordon was not responsible for anything. He’d been sat with his fingers up his arse for 10 years doing nothing,… apparently.

    You can’t have it both ways. Gordon’s borrowing more than the country can afford and pissing away the proceeds whilst overtaxing enterprise and trying it up in the longest tax code in the world, and creating a tax system so complex that even tax lawyers cannot comprehend it, allowing Tony’s Cronies to avoid shit loads of tax, whilst doubling the income tax on the poorest workers and freezing their allowances thus taxing their income more and more and more, whilst rewarding failure in the City by knighting the most corrupt and incompetent bankers and cutting their taxes, then blaming Thatcher for it all???

    Apparently, it’s not about equality, it’s about “fairness”.

    Individual men have been forced to work for 5 years more than women for the 36 years since the passage of the Sex Discrimination Act, even though women have a longer lifespan.

    So “fairness”, as defined by feminists, involves prolonging this gross discrimination against men.

    It looks inevitable and unavoidable that Greece will have to leave the Euro, but at what price? The EU’s executive will not let it go lightly. They have to defend the Euro at ALL costs. The rest of the EU project could finally begin to unravel if Greece left and the economic dominoes start ta fall… so the EU are utterly desperate to avoid that happening.

    Barroso et al will fight to the bitter end to defend their trough.

    How far will the destruction of Greece’s economy go? What new rules will the EU impose on Greece? And will they be forced (by their own people) to leave the EU entirely?

    It could be a good time to start looking for an apartment in Greece then.

    Because there is a difference between “repaying” debts (i.e. making payments out of income or other capital to reduce the ultimate sum of debt) and “servicing” debts (which is what you are talking about, but she was not). Greece cannot pay off its borrowing by borrowing more, just as paying off a credit card with another credit card does not repay the debt, merely move it. Similarly, borrowing from the EU will not reduce Greece’s debt, it will change the creditors (and, I might add, the interest rates charged mean that there will still be a real problem for Greece in keeping up with them).

    Hope that’s clear.

    Getting to fever pitch over care homes.

    The budgets are shrinking when costs are increasing…. AAGGHHhh

    People in charge of spending budgets under labour got used to sticking their hands out when costs increased and getting the Government to borrow more to cover it.

    They should take a leaf out of Tesco’s book and see how they spend money when costs are increasing. They refuse to pay increased costs.

    Tesco spending = “If you want to sell to us, you will sell at a price we are happy to pay.”

    Labour state spending = “How much? Aw OK, we’ll just go borrow that from the bank, we can always create a few more laws to make that back in fines, or invent new taxes!”

    Correct Huw, we have gone past would could be construed as a debt restructuring at this time. That was the last ‘bail-out’. Greece are now trying to borrow extra money just to repay that bail-out, let alone service its’ debt. Paying off it’s debt is wholly out of the question, as is merely servicing it. They are in difficulty servicing the bail-out and subsequent bail-outs will cost more and more and more and will inevitably be met with default.

    It is a mathematical certainty.

    I think the EU are trying to negotiate a way to (A) defend and protect the insanely inept bankers who lent Greece all that money and (B) Secure the least damaging way to let Greece collapse whilst trying to hold together the Euro, or failing that, how much of Greece’s physical assets they can take lawful ownership of.
