The End is Nighy

“We all owe any success we have had in our acting careers, to varying degrees, to films supported by the UK Film Council” screamed Bill Nighy in his last doomed toe-dip into the political arena. Since then he’s become the frontman for the cute, if incorrectly named, “Robin Hood Tax” campaign that would surrender the City of London to the sinking European ship. Old Bill clearly hasn’t taken the time to think these two campaigns through though…

The Film Council lobbied the government for tax breaks and special favours, yet this seems to be fine as long as Bill can “owe any success” to it. He even appeared in films shot in the Isle of Man for tax reasons – such as Wild Target. If Nighy wants a unilateral financial tax, Guido wants a unilateral Film Transaction Tax from the man himself. Perhaps “a tiny tax” on every single box-office and DVD sale?

            G Man, don’t forget that the Luvvies have a variable view on the law. A banker builds a house on green belt without planning permission and it’s “bankers greed and arrogance”. If it’s another group, then Vanessa Whatserface is there defending an oppressed minority.

            When I saw the picture of her at Dale Farm the caption should have read ‘I’m ready for my close up now Mr. De Mille’.

            Bill, Vanessa and all the other lefty luvvies are self employed and no doubt have clever accountants ensuring they don’t pay the same level of tax that the ‘little people’ do. They have agents that squeeze the most lucrative contracts from the studios. They are often insecure and wear their hearts on their sleeve as they have to keep in with the lefty luvvie crowd who seem to infest the ‘Arts Establishment’, hence the gesture politics of solidarity with whoever is currently indulging in high profile political posturing.

            Whilst all this nonsense goes on, millions of people up and down the country quietly continue to make things, repair things and sell things that other people need. Others keep the essential services running and make the country a place where luvvies can have the luxury of being mountebanks.

      The Twitterwaves, pap TV and the Dead Tree Press are filled with rich celebs who actually believe we care about their monstrous egos. Only the wealthy or benefit funded anarchists can indulge in socialism – as Tent City proves.

      Isn’t it interesting how satire died when Labour came to power? Elderly stand-ups still bang on BBC-like about Thatcher of whom few under the age of 30 know about.

      Political satire regarding Lord Lardarse, Gormless Gord & Tony Blair, Millionaire was abundant with potential comedy but the leftoid “comedians” switched focus to making fun of the vulnerable – old, the disabled, the overweight….the truly despised and neglected sectors under Labour….safer ground for people hating National Socialists Workers Party supporters with their approved list of victims…..Stand Up the Regressive Alliance!

        The argument is more to do with portability; if you don’t offer favourable tax rates for the film industry they just go elsewhere and you lose the money the production gives to the local economy (the people serving the double cream lattes to the actors). Apparently Nighy is able to see that in the case of the film industry but not in the case of the financial sector, is I think Guido’s point, which the unilateralists believe would just happily conduct business here rather than in, say, Singapore.

            Nah, a Tobin Tax is a good idea (in so far as it discourages short-term unproductive take-the-money-and-run trades which only increase market volatility) IF it were applied universally in so far as it would provide both a revenue stream which didn’t retard growth and would actually add to market stability, but it’s pretty fucking stupid if you’re the only one doing it because then the financial trading (which is near enough 100% portable) will just bugger off to the US or Asia. Which I’m pretty sure was what Cameron said at PMQs.

            A Tobin tax is not a good idea and doesn’t discourage speculation (ONLY lowering credit volume does that).

            All banks would pay the idiotic tobin tax which means there’d be no way of competing (except in a wise state that opted out of it) so it would just get passed onto the consumer through higher costs.

            So less volume but the same momentum = HIGHER VOLATILITY.

            Tobin tax = More violent and sudden moves in pricing. Good for the politically connected, bad for consumers.

      A New Blog to Convey the Message of Socialist Anarchism and Social Action to Interested Individuals.

      Not associated or funded by the Labour Party – but for it’s members and sympathisers to congregate and share ideas and articles if wished. One article a day will be posted for discussion.

      It is by Labour, and Capital that the world has been poisoned. Yet only Labour can heal it. Although we politically have sympathies with the Labour Party we believe that Anarchist insights can bridge the gap of dissonance between what Labour administrations have typically said vis a vis what they have done.

      It is clear enough that Tory propaganda and actions will not help the working man despite their claims to.

      The LabourGraph is hereby established to encourage to co-opting of the Labour party by the wider population and so it’s course of politics and it’s membership can be improved by a wider membership.

            Don’t worry, the likelihood would be that the problem would be managed by actually enforcing existing immigration laws properly and turfing out illegals, of which there are several hundreds of thousands (at the most conservative estimates) in London. By also actually checking who is claiming for what, a considerable amount of pressure on resources could be relieved. No-one I know of is interested in eugenics.

            It’s correct, you have to have a figure, otherwise clowns such as Jack Straw will get away without spouting the line that “there’s no practical limit to how many can come and live here.”

            There is a limit – the infrastructure; farms, fuel, power, schools, hospitals, care homes. At some point the cost of building, manning and maintaining these would stuff the country and we’d be passing Albania on the down-slope to the Third World.

            That group pretend they aren’t but they are really a one-trick pony. Their ideology is nonsense and their racism is unattractive to most people. With proper controls in place, their emotional appeal (and the appel of groups like them) would evapourate.

            If the government were made to do their job properly and actually enforce our immigration laws in the way the public expects, their other ‘attractions’ would be completely undermined.

            The rate of increase in the population will stabilize and reduce fairly naturally if the illegals are made to leave, proper controls put in place to keep further illegal entrant numbers down by intelligent enforcement and incoming legal immigrant numbers kept under proper scrutiny to ensure it is really in the naitonal interest.

            It will take a decade or so to undo the damage of successive waves of illegal entry and secret amnesties, but it is not worth giving up. There is too much at stake, not least the general feeling the public has that the government does not believe in the rule of law or in listening to the will of the public.

        However, for a truly awful film (co-star Howard Marion-Crawford actually killed himself after seeing the finished product), you have to go back to 1969′s “The Castle of Fu Manchu” starring Christopher Lee. Not even Plan 9 From Outer Space can match it (I’ve got that, too).

    I always enjoy a bit of Kelvin Mckenzie , I feel as though there is a decision to be made against political entropy , alas as the day progressed , there was a lot of strain , a few tacit points , an ecnomic paper the PM hadnt read and it was left to simmer . The new show is Berlosconies 2 days of trouble , however like an argentinian tango the dance progresses . Ed decided it was a good subject to get stuck into Dave on making the most of Daves apparent inability to turn debt into a deal at the g20 , I pondered what if in some alternate life , Ed had been in the driving seat , and was making the statement
    “Mr speaker I would like to inform the house of what took place at the recent Cannes G20, the global crisis which started in America and which Labour steered the UK through , has now come to a better agreement at the g20 , we will be assisting the eurozone , by investing in it , the house should not worry about matters like contagion , for when our far sighted previous PM signed the Lisbon treaty , he had in mind that such a situation as this may arise and we would need to chip in and lose any sense of being seperate from the now capitol of euroland , Berlin “Iche bein Ine Berliner ” as one USA president said and soon so shall we . Further good news at the meeting was that a whole new branch of goverment is to be set up , the truth and debt reconciliation ministry is to be headed by one our top british finance experts ,none other than Chancellor ed Balls , ensuring that investing our money in our shared debts is the right thing to do ……..”

    the curious mantra at the moment takes little account of what a post bazooka eurozone would look like , that is when we have legged ourselves in soo deep that talk of ecnomic recovery becomes meaningless and food handouts become the new jobless help . Very odd isnt it when no apparent solution is at hand on standard ecnomic models , Ed has no solution does he ? like the rest of labours ecnomic strategty , avoiding any connection between what they said at EU meetings , what they were doing to the Uk economy , debts allover the place and never a solution .Where is Blairs or the ruins great speech on reigning in eurozone debts or reapitalising eurozone banks post 2008 ?? absent?, in hiding ?? a prisoner of political fortune ?? Labour were the originators of the do nothing conferences on debts .

    Rather biased mental health package on NN , what about mental health cures that dont need drugs ?? mentioned nothing about how many have mental health issues through recreational drugs , and Labours ask frank approach to advice and free use ? I seem to recall prozac was the wonder drug when labour came in , god only knows what alhiezmer pateients have had to endure in terms of cocktail big pharma fixes , soon have that drug that negates christianity , then those that practise it will be deemed , you know medically and scientifically , a bit wrong in the head and outlawed .

    Cranmer has interesting bit , but no point in telling Dave and George they seem sure gay marriage is an election winner , all he needs now is to introduce licscenced sharia compliant brothels and smack palaces and he will have truly modernised the conservative brand .

    If Dave and george cant make there mind up on when best time is to abondon the EU and UKIP or BNP dont seem comfy then how about a new right party “Noahs ark party” slogan we only get to the end of the rainbow when all the debt has drained away….

Boris on his fellow Islingtonista Emily Thornberry:

“It was an entirely run-of-the-mill English townscape, with some straightforward words to go with it. There was no obvious insult, no abuse, no overt sneering. She might have got away with it entirely, had some alert blogger not spotted it. He instantly detected the coded message that Emily Thornberry was sending to all her right-on, bien-pensant, Labour-luvvie friends in Islington, or wherever else it is that they follow her on Twitter.”
