Guido’s Column in the Daily Star Sunday

In the column this week:

  • Find out how Andrew Marr judges a successful week.
  • Balls loses the argument and changes his tune.
  • They pretend otherwise but we have proof the Tories are worried about UKIP.
  • Pompey Penny’s whip-round.
  • Chris Bryant is out of touch with Labour voters.

Just 90p in newsagents…

    Let me get this straight. A Tory used to have sex with 16 year old boys. Later, Parliament decided that having gay sex with 16 year old boys was perfectly ok.
    So now this same Tory is to be vilified for doing something now legal which was then illegal.
    My question is therefore, are prominent gay people who had gay sex with anyone before legalisation in 1967 (or 1980 in the People’s Republic of Scotland) going to be similarly vilified?
    Top Watson, I think we should be told.

    Quite right about your OTOH, AC1.

    Slightly amended:

    1. A good teacher inspires.

    2. The effect on a child is that he/she is motivated to learn more.

    3. As Wittgenstein said, you need a ladder to get there but when you have you can throw it away. (We don’t need to reinvent the wheel every time we want to use one.)

    4. After that, and with a solid grounding, the maturer individual can question and even reject what he/she has been taught.

    5. His/her experience may be improved/downgraded by such departure from the norm (Darwinism).

    6. Sometimes, one can vary from normative positions and be right but you can still be rejected by your environment (Galileo).

    Why you ask? Well there are a number of reasons. My boys have to build blocks of flats for them as they are not supposed to be housed in social housing. The Government pays the rents via the Council and the Council gets paid for it, my boys launder their ill gotten gains through this development, make millions and donate to the Liberal Democrat Party and me and my cohorts in thanks. Finally, all these immigrants vote for me in gratitude, so let us keep bringing them in, giving them furnished properties, BMWs, smartphones etc. After all it’s good for me. Boaz.

    Your Friendly Neighbourhood Disaster Preparedness Programmes Service says:

    This is the sort of thing they’re talking about, not “tsunamis” (except for a handful of stations right at the tip of Manhattan, and it would take a record surge there). The system is “flooded” everytime there’s a heavy downpour from a thunderstorm, but that’s an hour’s worth of rain at most, and it’s quickly pumped out (from drainage channels fed by grates in the trackbed). A tropical storm is a day’s worth of the same type of rain. What they’re afraid of is the water coming in faster than it can be pumped out (they do have a pumping system), and flowing down the downhill parts of the system to collect in the tunnels under the River, and possibly knocking out the power rails. If a train were to stall with passengers aboard, it would be hard work evacuating them and of course there would be all sorts of lawsuits. That’s why they’re doing it. They did it in August 2011 for Hurricane Irene with no untoward problems, resuming service about 36 hours later, and they think they’ve got it down to a science now as a result.

    Cost of the high profit games boosting bookmakers’ profits

    Betting shops are to open at 8.30am for the first time on Boxing Day and New Year’s Day at all major chain
    By Sarah Bridge

    He hardly gambled until he was 38, apart from an occasional £2 flutter on the horses.
    But a lunchtime trip to the local bookmaker changed his life. David put £10 into a roulette machine and won £100.

    David (not his real name), now 44, said: ‘I left that shop high as a kite.’

    Thrilled with his easy winnings on the controversial fixed-odds machine, he returned later – and lost his £100 winnings, plus £200.

    David has decided to reveal the horror of his addiction to the controversial machines as bookies gear up for bumper profits from fixed-odds terminals this Christmas.

    Betting shops are to open at 8.30am for the first time on Boxing Day and New Year’s Day at all major chains, even though live racing does not start until the afternoon.

    Instead, punters will be enticed in by roulette and slot machine games, plus virtual horse and dog racing.

    This is despite increasing protests over the fixed-odds machines, which have been described as the ‘crack cocaine’ of gambling, able to hook punters such as David.

    He went back every day for the next three years. Sometimes he won, netting £1,700 for a few hours’ play, and once walking out with £5,000. But the winnings would not make up what he had already lost.
    ‘I was always chasing my losses and it just spiralled out of control,’ he said. ‘I knew I was in trouble but it just took over my life.’

    Almost from the start, David was gambling with the takings from his small construction business. He lost his house and his wife and two daughters.
    Desperate, he borrowed from money lenders and was beaten up when he couldn’t meet the sky-high interest payments.

    He stole to pay back the loans, was caught and got a criminal record. He even turned to dealing drugs to try to make some money. In all, he reckons he lost more than £250,000.

    ‘If you had said five years ago that I would be telling you about all the things I have done, I wouldn’t have believed you,’ said David. ‘I’m just a normal, run-of-the-mill bloke.’

    The final straw came one Saturday afternoon. He walked out of the bookmakers having lost £1,000.

    ‘I felt so low, I just had nothing left.’ That was two months ago and he hasn’t been to a bookies since. ‘The first two weeks not gambling were horrific,’ he said, ‘but every time I wanted to gamble I would distract myself, think of something else and just use all the willpower I had.’

    David now lives with his parents, never carries cash and has handed his debit card to his mum.

    He is fighting to save his business and wants his story to be told so others realise the harm these machines can do.

    ‘They should be banned,’ he said firmly. ‘You can win so much money so quickly, but you can lose it all, too, and much more. It’s not like casinos, it’s just so easy to walk into a bookmaker – there are four round the corner from where I live.

    ‘If politicians haven’t the guts to ban them altogether, they should have just one in each shop with a time limit. Otherwise you’ll have many more people like me.

    Yup, as posted above:

    NY flood protection: 5ft
    Predicted storm surge: 6-11ft

    If they can’t block all the subway entrances, then the entire system will fill with water. I think they’ll be able to pump it out eventually but it will take many weeks to get the system back up and running.

    The rain and wind are unlikely to cause lasting damage – it won’t be much worse than the stuff Scotland gets almost every winter.

    The lack of tides along these coasts means they are vulnerable – because our tidal range is so large it takes many more coincidences to cause trouble.

    The last storm of this size was in 1938, and New York was on the south side of that one (with offshore winds and therefore no bad storm surge)

    I hope the NYSE has good off-site backups and networks. Otherwise – SELL.

    Actually, the area of the subway system affected by any storm surge per se would be confined to Lower Manhattan, and the city has sad experience (11 September 2001) in knowing how to divert trains away from that area to restore some semblance of “regular service.” Manhattan Island, in the areas north of 14th St, has an elevation well above storm surge levels. In the outlying parts of New York City (Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island) the Rapid Transit is elevated for the most part, and even the subsurface parts are well out of storm surge danger areas. Mike Bloomberg will channel his inner Benito Mussolini and make the trains run on time through most of the system.
    It’s the kind of thing Mr Napoleon Complex lives for.

    Also, and for the same reason (11 September 2001), the NYSE has upgraded its contingency plans for occasions such as this.

    Every government in history has had its secret cabals of p*edo ministers who, going by the stories, all have a thing for orgies with rentboys or underage girls in luxury mansions. I daresay, the governments of 1997-2010 must have had their fair share of such activity. I suppose the main difference is that whilst the 80s perversions were covered up by a threat to the police that they’d lose their jobs if they pursued an investigation, the 97-10 governments would have made rather more shall we say “lethal” threats. Well, we know what a lovely and totally uncorrupt bunch they were.

Then we wait for all the finger-pointing. Then, conveniently, the lights will go out for several seconds. Then we’ll turn the lights back on and see how many of them are still in their seats, and how many are being led back into the room on the arms of some rather large policemen!

    With electronic trading, NYSE doesn’t need a floor. That the floor still exists is merely for TV crews as a backdrop and for z-list celebrities like McDoom to ring bells at opening and closing time whilst grinning like monkeys.

    As for the subway, they remove all the parts that are vulnerable to salt water flooding. This can be done within an eight hour timescale and is happening as I write. Then it is a case of pumping out and replacing those parts. Until the severity of this is known, it is not possible to estimate but I would guess it would range between less than a day to seven at the outside. However forecasts of severity are already being downgraded.

    The remaining aspect is the power supply, much of which is routed through the subway. The theory is that it is water-tight. But it only has to go in one spot… But even with bad news on this front, the NYSE data centre is based in NJ and they have generating capacity and fuel for a week of no power with options on further supplies should this period need to be extended.

“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.”
