          “Long-walks-off-short”-Piers Morgan wearing his own metaphorical tin foil hat, afraid to have any thought implanted in his head that in any way conflicts with his own world view. What is this “You and him fight, I’ll hold your coats”-mentality getting us by way of solutions to any real problems? Jeez Louise, you’d think anyone who would bother (a) to watch Piers Morgan instead of some third-rate sitcom and (b) to watch an interview with Dr. Paul, would want to do so because they wanted to find out what the fellow was all about, but Piers goes straight for the who-cares shit, thus offending what few intelligent viewers he may still have left. This idiot should get Clarkson’d.

            Of course he did, but that incident, for most people, just reeked of what I was speaking about, i.e. media personalities and boys behaving badly, as though that’s all everybody cares about (sadly, that IS all some, perhaps too many, care about). If they’d tangled near the edge of a cliff and got each other in a death grip, pulling each other over, I might be arsed to give a good damn. No, I was referring to the neologism du jour of “to Clarkson,” i.e. to take someone one out and shoot them in front of their family– which might not be all that bad in Jezza’s case either, come to that.

            You make me uncomfortable when you refer to yourself as old.

            Because you are not intimidated by anything here when it can be quite savage. Old (or young) is how you feel.

            I have got this funny feeling that I am probably very slightly older than you. Yet I think I am still young. I still feel and act as I did when I was in my early 20s.

            Some people may disapprove of that. Their problem not mine.

            So I want you to start telling yourself that you are young again.

            And believe it !!!!

            I want to tell you about a friend my family had. She lived in Cannes. Her name was Nan Young, Lady Young. She lived to be 102 years old and passed away about five years ago.

            In the war, she was a prisoner of the Japanese. Who knows what she endured?

            I only knew her in her last three decades. She used to serve meals to what she called the “elderly” at Holy Trinity, Cannes. The elderly were from 65 years upwards. She continued to do this until the age of 97!

            The human spirit at its best IMHO! And you probably know that I am not religious.

            May your mum continue to think like this.

I had to laugh when I saw Mark Thomson and his cohorts in the Select Committee, when they would not give a straight answer to the question of how much one of their senior employees earned in a year, trying desperately not to quote a figure, presumably out of embarrassment. So much for transparency and accountability. I’m sure they think we’re stupid.

      The trouble with Ron Paul is that he is all too sane – he is unwilling to indulge in the lies and omissions that would allow him to be electable.

      He sees the problems of a declining and ever more degenerate political system far too clearly to be trusted to reform it in a comfortable manner, and his habit of calling “Shenanigans!” whenever and wherever he sees hypocrisy and self-interest makes him a hate figure for the vested interests in the political-media complex that is strangling America.

Is there any Tory Eurosceptic backbencher who has the backbone to trigger a leadership challenge?

        Getting it wrong is not somthing suggested when going into bailouts , but then again he wont be picking up the tab and to be honest , he must realise that if the solutions being proposed across the channel are half cocked , to not go along with it , is his gamble . he talks a lot about outcomes , that is what we hope he has considered .
        This is no time for a novice , or one that thinks niavety will allow him to scrape through, nor those cooing the spin in the sidelines from other parties under the spell . As he chooses , so must we all.

        Edward IV/ and his brother the eventual RichardIII understood exactly Warwick’s power and played it to a T.

        Cameron overestimated cleggies kingmaking properties and gave him too much power as a consequence. Bad political decision that will impact on his leadership of the tories by 2015!

    mmm seems as though cutting debt is the new black , whole departments ? ah but would ron paul choose .

    Somthing about the Merkel Sarkozy breifing wasnt quite right , for some reason I thought it was the kind of speech the ruin could give , hectic , full of gonna does and some sort of unquestionable imperative . The luxury seemed to have gone out of them , the crisis seemed very much to be in there hands .
    It was classic ruin , “we are going to impose penalties” “we need a new treaty” , but then there were slight hints that we had moved beyond requests easily fullfilled and onto the demands , voting measures to stop it being torpedoed , countries must accept more german control if they want us to cover the debts . It flickered between paradise and unthinkable .

    Perhaps no one reads there children Hanzel and Grettle and the superstitions of fairy tales , some think of as clutter of the mind , now that reason has become mathematics . Today wasnt quite perhaps a trail of crumbs leading children lost in a dangerous wood to a magical house of sugary things , but there was somthing of the casino about it , both looked a little frought at the all in nature of what they were proposing , rather like unveiling a personal piece of art , to people who dont really enjoy modern art.
    There wasnt any joy with the avant guard though , was there in part because german and french tax payers would be footing any miscalculation for a long time , I wasnt even convinced if they knew if it work , and it lacked the detail what some hacks thought of more of the backroom , when considering what they were talking about I would have thought a detailed plan was needed . It lacked the freedom of Rolf Harris , “can you see what it is yet” as within the austerity there were faint hints of how future trade must work . “we must get competative work practices ” , and I got the idea that socialism perks were going to be reformed big time , but again they have a job on not to make it look too scary even if looking like the return of the gods of greece fables and the rest of us puny humans facing trials and delimmas of capricous games of the gods .
    There was perhaps a little surprise (in the inherant unpredictability of debts ) that ireland had a 16bn eu shortfall and was putting VAT up to 23%, which may suggest the lever of choice post big bazooka .

    There was also no admission that somehow the EU had seriously failed to look after things , as though the debt had materialised without them inducing austerity much much earlier , or recapitalisation , which again reminded me how detached from perhaps reality it seems to behave , but that may be what you would expect , when commisoners dont have voters to worry about ,let alone being able to keep dissenters at distance or make them ineffectual , they soak up the Hannans and Farrages like armour plate because it is run that way , representation of course that is european , but acting on it, is somthing for the special ones to deal in , it is impermable to all but those who spend in its enlargement .

    The only way it could be spun was that the club, after may be 10yrs would be much better , which perhaps is why we were left to fill in what actions were in mind . Yet it is the actions that would determine if it was journey to somewhere you did not wish to go .

    Easing the pain is fairly natural response for civilised humans , perhaps eutopians and europeans are interchangeable in speaking in this way . The possibility of unrest due to rectifying the debts is a natural concern , but then you have to ask what sort of cycle will the debt repayment will create , will eurozone citizens be having there expectations altered to subsistence , will unions wreck the fine controls triggering punative actions or even a more militant state . two teir europe or tear gas europe .

    That is the trouble i have with todays , fiscal demand , who knows what compliance will manefest itself as , what if default occures , what is the ultimate penalty ?

    compliance and cooperation are what the EU wants , it doesnt like considering its mistakes .

    Debts left for others always do infere change in future perceptions , it is perhaps worth considering if other options , reversion back to currencies hold a much better future in political compliance , it may just save the spirit of sovereign cooperation before it transforms into demands of the myhtical gods .

    In an astonishing NN survey of rioters , it found that 1/3 had no previous conviction mmmm , there were some comments in the package that if true tell me a great deal about what labours approach to respect was and is …… “Is it cos I cant stop being a child needing nanny state and I is gonna do what i like , be nutter teenager an all that for ever, face bovvered wheres my EDA grant you non socialist governemnt “, perhaps da street talk aint really explainin tings like it used to bro

    RBS story was excellent , worth watching perhaps missed quite a bit of cocktail circuit out keep forgetting how many bankers were labour ministers was it 9, and that knighthood but placed words , events and numbers quite well , as well as perhaps offering a lesson on being so clever that you make broke all the little people you in fact conned .

    Strange times for Russia , bit sad really being as they just refurbished the bolshoi , and it had gained some tourist points , perhaps next time round they will crack on with good education , small business , better home life and asking the oligarchs to retire from racketeering and try some more honest politics to serve its people . That said Mr Putin did at least put russia on a better dialogue than decades of his predescessors and better to travel and see the country than have to watch “duck and cover” films .hope they get round the change required that is being hinted at in the election.

    Rowan Williams blames the government , I blame the previous one although I suspect it may be somthing to do with ecnomic theory becomming wonk as well , dont know why he cannot see beyond the shop front or see who , why and how the injustice occured , i mean how can you do more for the poor when all you have is a fist full of debt ?? Where is his morality of work , as fundamental speech ? rather than redistribution ? Still at least he has taken a stance on church being for marriage (as in millenia tradition definition of marriage), although given the number of couples now not in marriage , you might think he took his eye off the ball on that one as well as public accounts during labour .

But the so called Tory Eurosceptics are a complete waste of time. They won’t do any thing, they don’t want to lose their seats!! Dan Hanaan and all of them, just a load of hot air.

    Cameron’s conservatives( the rich, powerful Euro elite), Hesletine,Howe,Clarke will never win an outright election.

    They didn’t in 2010 because Cameron made the mistake of going on the telly to debate, he didn’t need to, a bad error of judgement.

    And he won’t win in 2015 either.

    In any case, any one voting for the LibLabCons in 2015 is voting for a United States of Europe, their recent 3 line Commons Whip proves it.
