    The current banking crisis explained by an Irishman

    Young Paddy bought a donkey from a farmer for £100.
    The farmer agreed to deliver the donkey the next day.
    The next day he drove up and said, ‘Sorry son, but I have some bad news. The donkey’s died.’
    Paddy replied, ‘Well then just give me my money back.’
    The farmer said, ‘Can’t do that. I’ve already spent it.’

    Paddy said, ‘OK, then, just bring me the dead donkey.’
    The farmer asked, ‘What are you going to do with him?’
    Paddy said, ‘I’m going to raffle him off.’
    The farmer said, ‘You can’t raffle a dead donkey!’
    Paddy said, ‘Sure I can. Watch me. I just won’t tell anybody he’s dead.’

    A month later, the farmer met up with Paddy and asked, ‘ What happened with that dead donkey?’
    Paddy said, ‘I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at £2 each and made a profit of £898′
    The farmer said, ‘Didn’t anyone complain?’
    Paddy said, ‘Just the guy who won. So I gave him his £2 back.’

    Paddy now works for the Royal Bank of Scotland ..

    Irish economic model is the modal Osborne was planning to implement in UK. Even Osborne said so.

    Even now building homes over the green build is the model Ireland and Spain followed. Cameron wants to follow the same model.

    Even part of China’s growth is based on this, they have 64 million empty properties. They are even building more.

    You all know where it will end up?

    Funny, but not as funny as the blog comments.

    Crikey, there’s a whole world out there that I didn’t know about. It’s full of hand wringing weirdo narcissists (camp followers of their Head Narcissist, Weird Ed)…or have I missed the joke?

    Anyway, with due haste I really must sign up for the 2015 Declaration for Gender, Height, Weight and Hair Colour Balance in European Decision-Making.

    They really do get to the heart of the important issues these Euro Trashers.

    Owen Jones"The Cheekie Chappie" says:

    Paddy and Murphy needed to make some money and came up with the idea to produce a film. Murphy waited outside with the car and Paddy went in and asked the bank if they’d provide the finance.
    When he came out he said, “Feck me, they’re going to give us a shit load of money! Too much for us to carry in fact!”
    Murphy asked him, “Really? How much?”
    Paddy said, “Fecked if I know but it must be lots, they told me to come back with a trailer”.

    Six inches of snow and parts of the country are shut down for possibly weeks.

    In Austria, Germany and Czech Republic, this sort of snow is commonplace and such falls occur numerous times each winter. During the falling, things sometimes get delayed but within a relatively short time, even the minor roads are cleared. It is mostly a matter of better organisation.

    With the greater population density in the UK, there is no reason why things should not be cleared even sooner. Yet defeat is admitted before anyone gets up off their arses. That flights are so readily cancelled is an appalling response. If other countries with more snow can clear their runways and de-ice their aircraft, why can’t we?

  73. 73

    Labour oppose the present government’s expenditure plans. They pledge to do the exact opposite.

    Given that the alleged cuts are, in fact, merely smaller increases, then presumably they will have to say they are spending more whilst actually delivering real cuts.

    One may only be able to win such arguments inch by inch. I, for one, would not wish to have to be the one to press it into the fragrant Harriet though.

    From the economic point of view though, and I wish to be excused for my shameful french:

    What fucking mong thought that taxing an unavoidable energy cost for the privilege of production was a viable model to apply to the productive capitalist model ?

    Agreed it can improve efficiency. But, why not target reduction of the really harmful emissions rather than stuff which plants eat ? If the waste products of industry are to be taxed at all.

    The US was on to this years back when it was pointed out that it was dumb to tax a man for lighting a fire to keep himself warm.

    Have a history teacher explain this if they can.

    Abraham Lincoln was elected to Congress in 1846.

    John F. Kennedy was elected to Congress in 1946.

    Abraham Lincoln was elected President in 1860.

    John F. Kennedy was elected President in 1960.

    Both were particularly concerned with civil rights.

    Both wives lost a child while living in the White House.

    Both Presidents were shot on a Friday.

    Both Presidents were shot in the head.

    Now it gets really weird.

    Lincoln’s secretary was named Kennedy.

    Kennedy’s Secretary was named Lincoln.

    Both were assassinated by Southerners.

    Both were succeeded by Southerners named Johnson.

    Andrew Johnson, who succeeded Lincoln, was born in 1808.

    Lyndon Johnson, who succeeded Kennedy, was born in 1908.

    John Wilkes Booth, who assassinated Lincoln, was born in 1839.

    Lee Harvey Oswald, who assassinated Kennedy, was born in 1939.

    Both assassins were known by their three names.

    Both names are composed of fifteen letters.

    Now hang on to your seat.

    Lincoln was shot at the theater named “Ford.”

    Kennedy was shot in a car called “Lincoln” made by “Ford.”

    Booth and Oswald were assassinated before their trials.

    And here’s the “kicker”:

    A week before Lincoln was shot, he was in Monroe, Maryland.

    A week before Kennedy was shot, he was with Marilyn Monroe.


    Lincoln was shot in a theater and the assassin ran to a warehouse…

    Kennedy was shot from a warehouse and the assassin ran to a theater..

    The ‘weather tosser’ works for the Met Office. They were forecasting ‘Heavy Snow’ for my location for 09:00 today. Then they changed it to 12:00. Then they changed it to 15:00. Then 18:00. Then 21:00. They’ve now changed it to 00:00 tonight.

    We have had no snow at all today.

    Ermm, Cat, I think you’re being confused by the film Goldfinger, as far as the “only a film set” goes. There really IS a Ft Knox bunker, and it really IS a heavily fortified building with all kinds of booby-trapping and surveillance both interior and exterior.
    Whether there’s any gold there, that’s another story; it might be that the gold, if indeed there is any at all, is actually at, oh, I don’t know, Area 51? Area 51, which is in theory even more impenetrable and is certainly remoter than hell, would seem to be a more logical place to store the gold, as it is also reputed to be a depot for spent nuke material and certain types of toxic waste. Makes more sense to have it there, than at an active military base accessible by road from Louisville in a half-hour. Maybe it’s all one large misdirection? Stranger things have happened.

    I watched the Bullshit Broadcasting Corporation today,one of the few times I watch their left wing propaganda.
    This crowd don’t know the meaning of what news should be all about,all I heard was their attempted denial of anything that didn’t support the now discredited theory of global warming.
    On top of this was cammorons lack of a speech re:- the EUSSR bandits,well folks I for one could see that he took the view that he was between a rock and a hard place with the Algerian issue and british lives being lost and what will be the end result.
    I can think of a previous PM who did not take this approach,and thousands of lives were lost.
    The BBC presenters today are little more than brainwashed tossers who are certainly overpaid for what they do.

    Back in the mid-1920s, the head of the German Central Bank, Herr Hjalmar Schacht, went to New York to see Germany’s gold. However the NY Fed officials were unable to find the palette of Germany’s gold bullion. The Chairman of the Federal Reserve, Benjamin Strong was mortified, but to put him at ease Herr Schacht turned to him and said ‘Never mind, I believe you when you when you say the gold is there. Even if it weren’t you are good for its replacement.’

    I do know that story and I would have included it in my original post, but you DO realise that the “Fed” and the “Feds” are two different things altogether, at least in how they are set up? You learn in Conspiracy Theory 101 that the Federal Reserve Bank is not an official governmental agency, but rather a consortium of private banks organised as a quango by having political appointees. There could in theory be two different stockpiles of gold– one held by the United States government itself, and one held by the Federal Reserve Bank. To have included this fact would have been a distraction, I had thought.
    Which, by the way, reminds me of how those who attempt to sell you “physical” gold as a hedge against inflation tell you that your gold bars will be kept securely in their vaults, because you would need to go to the trouble and expense of storing it yourself, and you’d always worry about burglary. So they’ll send you the warehouse receipt evincing ownership, and you can take delivery in future, or sell the piece of paper for the gain if you wish. Tell ‘em it’s none of their business how troubling or expensive it is, you want the gold in hand. You’ll run the risk of burglary, and it’s not their concern. See if they sell to you on that basis. If not, then they’re trying to pull the same fast one the Fed was playing on Mr Schacht.

    they work for themselves says:

    A breakdown of the list showed that the British taxpayer directly paid for 8,841 tickets to allow scores of top civil servants, ministers, actors and business leaders to attend the Olympics and Paralympics last August and September.

    The overall amount spent – £1.17million – was far more than the £750,000 which had previously been forecast by sports minister Hugh Robertson in November 2011. It was spent on 8,841 tickets for the Olympics and Paralympics games.

    Analysis by The Daily Telegraph shows that thousands of pounds was spent by the Government on free tickets for scores of its ministers to go to events including beach volleyball, rowing, athletics, basketball, handball and the BMX cycling.

    I would think you might want to re visit , that league of Africa thing Ghaddafi had going .looks like it left a bit of vaccuum for despot in chief .

    As for the rest NN gave quite a lot to think about , which in this case I would do . The perhaps biggest shame is the realisation that since Rommel left that whole area has wasted of lot of its people and ecnomic providence . Colonial help can only really be short term , in the sense of the desire to have better governments . I have no idea why they keep doing repeat performance of gold braid dictator and military spending with general oppression via criminal overlords , i mean any osmotic desire to run a country in some sort of proper way , has had its UN oppertunity for nearly 40yrs , yet ist got a bit stuck on socialism phase and aid . If its got jihadism now as well , looks like being a sick continent for some time . To me it looks like it ought to be , dealing with the trouble as short as possible , and to think about how to achieve , what it would seem the people want . I mean they may just be beginning to think outside the box of the despotic era so all sorts of things could change the enviroment , without a long armed discussion .
    In my view the despotic era closes when they stand on there own feet . I dont think we should be drawn in anymore than giving a bit of break to get some countries running a bit more properly or modernly. If not that then its what countries could do with new large UN garrison towns for half a century or so …. As i pointed out even Rommel eventually had to leave … I just wish he had instilled in them somthing of democracy , instead of ordinance as requisite to good government .

    The ‘man-made’ global warming guys are liars and idiots when it comes to propaganda about sea-levels rising 100 feet (and almost everything else).
    They use the Antarctic ice (average depth 2,500m) and Arctic ice (average depth 1,500m) in their figures and claim it could all melt. There isn’t enough energy on the planet to do that.
    The sea-ice they report melting ‘dramatically’ on the news is average 2-3 metres thick, and seasonal. That might be 5% of the ocean max. (and ice is only 10% less dense than water, so most of it is sunk below the surface already).

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“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.”
