Mad Al’s Dodgy Gamble

Alastair Campbell has spent most of the festive period going off on one about the gambling industry, which he accuses of “getting it’s tentacles into Parliament.”

Its an interesting line to take from someone who is in the pay of an organisation whose job is to do just that – push the interests of gambling in parliament. What Mad Al likes to keep quiet when he is on one of his new moral crusades is that he is a well remunerated lobbyist for Portland. And who are are on the spinmeister’s client list? The Association of British Bookmakers, of course.

            If it was aid. The aid we give does not help anyone.

            As soon as the white Land Rovers are seen, the area is doomed. This money is used to destabilise areas. They gather people into camps so that the density of mouths is above the natural productivity of the land. Once moved, there is no escape. They provide wells that can supply more people than the land can support and so over populate the area.

            Even in high food areas the “aid” they send supports outside “workers”. I have witnessed the acts of some of these deranged people. One in particular was obviously a danger in his home community so was sent away as a aid worker. Completely off his trolley and disrupted the local population gatherings by openly humiliating them for their customs. Those in charge had no care to control him. This was along with the out of date chocolate and porridge!

            The biggest crime is packaging it all in plastic. Up until the aid arrived, all waste was buried or recycled through animals. Now the place resembles a rubbish tip with plastic protruding from the ground.

            They obviously provided aid to transport produce to a central and distant market. But there was no aid to transport the people in need to the same market. I saw massive heaps of rotting food in a country during a famine.

            It is sad to see the damage that is done to these communities by the money. But then some people want their land, or to select the people. Even visited a museum dedicated to the local activist that was killed to silence him, when they wanted the mining rights.

            Campbell has a point, for once. The bookies do get preferential treatment.

            Like other forms of gambling, FOBTs need limiting to £2 stake. The industry knows it, the bookies know it. It doesn’t happen because the bookies have powerful friends.

Hundreds have been off this month with a rather vicious flu-type cold, that leaves the sufferer completely drained for a week after the other symptoms have gone, but this doesn’t get reported.

        The 1 million figure is just a guess though, as “apparently” only 1 in 300 sufferers goes to the doctors with it. Yeah, right.

        £15 pcm on water and drainage
        £55 pcm on electricity
        £100 pcm on food (just £3 per day)
        £30 pcm broadband – useful if you want to get a job (ask the DWP)

        The big trap they fell into was that of the double or nothing debtor.

        They should be very angry with Broon though : If he had allowed the election to be called earlier and not tried his hand at prime ministering, then the coalition government which would have emerged back in 2008 could have dealt with the mess, and the socialist shampoo taps could be reopened next year after another landslide GE for Labour.

      An internal Labour Party report in 1978 stated that if the government (then a Labour one under Callaghan remember) continued with its current economic policies then there would be 6 million unemployed by 1982.

      In 1982 under a Thatcher led Conservative government there were “only” 3 million unemployed. That’s 3 million lives not ruined because Maggie was in charge.

      It is bad now, and the current government is being held back by the Lib Dems from enacting another Thatcherite rescue, but can you imagine how bad it would be if Labour were still in power.

      It is true that a lot of the fat was cut from manufacturing industry, but what was left was lean and mean – and profitable. Blair and Brown actually cut into the meat and destroyed a profitable sector of the economy. Tony Benn also closed more of our coal mines than Mrs Thatcher.

        Pinochet was a nasty man who used strong-arm tactics and torture. He replaced another nasty man called Allende, who also used strong-arm tactics and torture. The rest of the discussion is about scale and speculation about ‘would have’s. Allende was certainly planning an anti-democratic coup of his own when he was ousted, conspiring to train guerrillas and allowing leftists to stockpile arms.

          Expat Geordie says:

          Pinochet got the killing out of the way very quickly and efficiently. Having an unstable country is bad for business, and Pinochet, when he handed power over to a democratically elected government (can you ever imagine a left wing dictator doing that?) handed over the strongest economy in South America.

          Allende was a marxist (which is why the BBC, et al, have lionised and mythologised him) who had totally screwed up the economy, and like any marxist would eventually have started killing and never stopped. He would also never have handed over power to a democratically elected government.

          One of the most remarkable events of the run up to the 1973 coup was the demonstations of the empty pots, where housewives demonstated against the Allende governments disasterous economic policies, and where the wives of soldiers went on a sex strike until their husbands brought Allende down.

      not a machine says:

      What we forget about Lady Thatchers premiership , is what she was faced with when she came into power , the truth being that the hard left had no solution to the mess they had created , we had gone to the IMF , devalued the £ , we were utterly on the ropes , compared to the modernising european economies , we had deficets across nearly all sectors of industry , let alone government .

      The left simply had no solution in the beer and sandwiches discussions , the socialists dont like being reminded of that salient fact , that is why they pose there attacks in the way they do , clutching at straws .

      Although I didnt really understand politics during her time , she did take on what was wrong with a very certain idea that we could not let this happen again in the future , in that respect she deserves some honour .

      My only criticism as I see the economy we have now , is that those who are in office gladly on the ride of her coat tails , did not get stuck in to Blair and co by realising what he was doing . A state client benefits class was a road to ruin from the off , he should have been stopped much earlier on.

      The only thing I think her government got wrong , was to not reform local councils business activities and make the housing market sustainable , which later on would allow a great deal of henious wastes of money when Tony arrived

        Namely: The right are honestly dishonest, the left are dishonestly dishonest.

        Pinochet was nasty with his treatment of dissidents, but his crimes compare to nothing with the real crimes of deceit perpetrated against dissenters and supporters of the key left wing dictators.

        The traits of the left as mentioned above explain fully how this occurs.

        This also explains why the propaganda of the left is much more prevalent on these issues. Recognizing and ignoring such propaganda for what it is helps strip the lion skin from the ass, so to speak.

            these fuckwits (well in a sense ) but lovely people really , with charm and charisma have seen that they can get away with lies because the populace are donks and they are the intelligent ones. You cannot attached blame to these people they are just trying to play a good innings with their lives, for their lives’ benefit but we should not call them politicians anymore, rather polichumps or polidonks or some other word that makes them feel slightly loved as opposed to thieves, treacherous liars, and enemies of the common man.

          • Press Watch says:

            You have totally failed to get the nuance. To illuminate:

            Since the press was liberated towards the end of the 18th century and all the laws repealed in the mid 19th, there has been one way or another a direct influence on the press by parliament. Either subtly through taxation, or blatantly as with the relationship between Murd0ch and the government.

            It is the fact that Leveson being called for as a panacea to fix all by the misguided ‘donks’ (good word) who think they are selling a really good thing which is hilarious. I mentioned to reinforce your original point about lack of press freedom, and illustrate the hypocrisy and misguided notion of the campaign and statutory regulation.

            The only difference which would happen if the recommendations were implemented in full is that there would be legal consequences, up to an including jail for any proprietor or journalist who didn’t do as they were told.

            Government would prefer to keep a softer control over the press as they know that a hard control will be problematic.

            People are still not asking for the right thing though which is that liberty of the press is itself enshrined into law. Until that happens, there is no free press.

          Note it is always the markets which the media and politicians are bowing to? The message is that Governments are powerless and leaders “muppets”.

          That being so, what does criticising specific members of Governments do except aid and abet the greater Wall Street led anarchistic strategy, and I’m not referring to the protestors?

          The European people now appear to be doing the bidding of their remote anarchistic masters – i.e. the market traders and other financiers and property developers, major female goods retailers etc who profit from this. That is, freedom loving Libertarians, who get most of their financial support from the USA, Wall Street, as you remarked over Goldman-Sachs and Greek debt. But who were the loans to. What are “Households” and “NPISH” in Eurostat? What are the classes? Who is being dumped upon because they are the majority and pay the most taxes. Is this not done by sleight of hand? Is this not the true socialisation of the debt by those who profited by property development at a time when indigenous populations were in decline through small family sizes?.

    Turkey sandwiches or Lord lardbreath , why bring in the Normans to a perfectly good question on why the left had no answer for the problems it had created , that led to Lady Thatcher being elected ?? I mean if you think the tory golf club lot failed , whats your view on Fred Goodwin ? or dont Labour have upper or middle class failures …..

    You can say what you want , fair enough , but if your going to have a good go at Lady Thatcher on politics , yet play around with pre of her comming to power , as some sort functioning socialist utopia , you need to look at the stats , we were sinking in costs due to losing out to exports . I can understand any argument you might have on the shock of the changes , I lived in area particulary hard hit by them and saw them for real , but she did somthing no left politician could have done , modernised and put Britians ecnomic status back , in a spurt of prosperity .

    Like I say I dont like this modern economy at all , it wasnt perhaps quiet how the conservative success of regaining competativeness was perhaps supposed to work out in seeing a run on a bank . Labour had 13 yrs in which to ensure that we had a stable and balanced economy , with modernised public services , and they blew it , utterly trashed it all in the end in a fit of lies , madness debt and misery. I think history will tell that labour utterly sold off the working class on there watch , while supping champagne with bankers and PR spivs . I mean look at from my perspective this is the second time (there is third but I wasnt around then) I have seen a Labour government utterly ruin the british economy , and you wonder why I seem to blindly appreciate what Lady Thatcher did ??? when you see the likes of the Ed Balls unable to articulate if losing 1.3 mn manufacturing jobs on his parties tenure was a good thing , or selling off half the gold reserves and letting 2 mn migrants in even though we had a fiddled unemployment fig of 1mn .

    Blame the Normans ….and golf club torys and not the idiots who were running the country each time ….. tell you what lets leave the normans and the golf club tories aside for a moment , can you show me a country that has run socialism and it worked ?……

“‘Poisonous’, was the picture painted by one former senior advisor. ‘Dysfunctional,’ said one shadow cabinet member. ‘A bunch of medieval courtiers, not an office,’ said another. The most positive description I could get was ‘It’s a work in progress. They’re learning. Slowly. But they are learning.’”
