Simon Jenkins is uneasy about Quantitative Easing…

“The Bank of England quarterly bulletin is full of QE theology. Its report on a recent conference on the subject is pure angels on pinheads.”

    Pinheads and pricks do manage the banks but angels don’t exist

    QE is the current acceptable method of inflating debt away. The governments of the West believe that the population is too thick to realise what is going on, and the current surge in Labour’s fortunes indicate just how right they are. In medieval times it was known as coin-clipping and all the governments did that as well, while visiting horrendous punishments on private enterprise engaged in the same practice. Some things never change.

      Yes, only acceptable to the B of E and stupid conniving politicians. For normal people it stinks.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
