            It’s government policy to distribute these people all over the country.

            According to the DM today Chipping Norton has approved it’s first m*osque!

            Bet Mr Cameron daren’t say anything about that. Ha ha ha.

            They’re certainly being distributed all over the place – they’re starting to appear where I live; up until a year ago we were mercifully spared the influx. Now, the burqas are appearing.

            One guy sells the Big Issue outside Boots. Who the f*ck let him in the country?

            Border Control: “And what skills can you bring to the UK, Mr Foreigner?”

            Foreigner: “I can be sayings ‘Big Issue! Big Issue!”

            Border Control: “Excellent! We need lots of people with that skill. Come right in! Here, have a council house, have lots of benefit money, make yourself at home!”

            It is the redistribution of the Scousers and the Scots that irritates me. Every tube station and bus station in London seems to have a small community. If it is as good back home as they constantly say, why are they in London.

            I worked in London for a few years in the 1960′s at PO Overseas Telegraphs as a teleprinter operator and then at Reuters. My “Fleet St days” I call it. If you had mentioned Londistan or the Beacon of I*slam no-one would have had a clue what you meant.

            I lodged in Croydon. Ah Croydon, a lovely place with it great stores – Kennards, Grants and Allders and it’s beautiful Coombe Park.

            Now it’s a multi-cultural hell-hole I’m told. Strange, it still looked OK when I was last there ten years ago for a funeral. Just goes to show how much anywhere can change and in a very short time.

            Fall back and barricade, only way. 5 British families I know have just pulled back to their old village (pooled resources to get a big enough place) we’ve helped them with the local security side of things (ex. forces are in strength round here) the local plod have f_cked off to wait for their pensions so you have to do your own policing. The Easter EU scum are simply every where and if running drugs and stolen cars are the way the elite measure the productivity of this lot then they are f_cking gang busters! We had to take sort out the drugs and the nicking the the village ourselves. So that’s the way it will be.

          The might be wanting to establish the US system of health care if you have insurance OK but which Insurance Company, and that depends on whether the Insurance company pays up, how many have taken holiday insurance and found that the insurance does not cover what they have fallen ill with. To get some idea how much it might cost, notice vet bills and how they have gone up, with humans triple or quadruple that. You ill have to pay for all your drugs as extras, not cheap after stroke or slorosis

          • Casual Observer says:

            US has just gone with Obamacare, so likely not going there. Burnham was talking about importing some of those ideas towards end of last month: Very surreal pronouncements.

            Obamacare is essentially the same as the UK where you have no option but to pay in. They are making the proportion paid in compulsory and commensurate with your pay over there. And now, removing medicaid, denying those who are not earning from healthcare.

            The notion that the poor were denied health care in the US was previous false propaganda mainly promulgated in the UK.

            Hunt is keeping out of this as he likely doesn’t want blood on his hands or interfere with the ongoing criminal investigations. This is bigger than Hewitt / Burnham: The department itself on the civil side is primarily at fault, and then work down to the front line staff. Union take is going to be interesting, which will be another sensitivity for Hunt.

            In mean time, Fernbridge could take him out. Virginia Bottomley was secretary of state for Health 92 through 95, another weakness for Hunt. She was up to her neck in Pindown back then, this policy in Health is claimed to have started 2001 but is that a limitation of the inquiry scope, or the truth ?

            Not keen on Hunt: He should have gone after Sky-B and Olympics screw ups.

    The perfect end to your story,

        I take it all back. As I did not read the Fail, I did not realise that this time, there really WAS a councillor stupid enough to do it. One would have thought he’d be smart enough not to invite the controversy that could ensue, as it had done in the past, when this picture was re-Tweeted all over the place and there were people in responsible positions taken to task for having done so, but NO– Laughing Boy figured WTF and did it anyway, probably thinking nobody would reproduce the image (and his address with it), as it’s been around on the ‘Net since the year dot com. Well, he guessed wrong. (And so did I, it must be said, as to the story’s veracity.) Something tells me, though, this story will continue to go on, as now there may well be people looking to hack into politicians’ Twitter accounts and send this image, all for the purpose of just stirring up trouble with the Muz community, and causing grief for the pol.

      It’s a long list.
      Labour failed to deal with banks properly.
      They also allowed debt to soar, both national and personal.
      They failed to deal with the media properly, resulting in rampant phone hacking. Their neglect and target system resulted in mass murder in NHS hospitals.
      Their fiddling with school exam results led to many more kids leaving school with qualifications but a crap education.
      And while we are on about fiddling they encouraged MPs to fiddle expenses.
      But they did manage to stop some foxes getting killed, which are now eating babies.

            @HWNLP: It is perhaps best to ignore the trolls and focus on your content and the points of view which are of interest or intrigue to you. Engaging Trolls is only distracting and a waste of your time.

            Shifting moniker is good every now and then if the trolls obsess on one. Remember the power of ridicule is quite good, and trolling against yourself can be a confuser, especially if you have just put something down that is wrong or you have a change of mind. Sometimes it is good for getting across your real point more powerfully.

            Guido can deal with this if he considers it to be not suitable for his blog, as he could deal with those think they are augmenting his points or perhaps their own.

            Those who try to figure out who is who in an anonymous environment are really wasting their time. I could be mistaken for others if I figure out how to do bold etc. but then I could be just others choosing to post every now and then without. And that is before it is considered that one could just steal a moniker, the easiest way to confuse the least sophisticated.

            Those who are genuinely interested in discussing real issues will know roughly who is who. It is not the person but the ideas, beliefs and views which are key. As Engineer said many moons back, noise filtering is important, especially if you wish to tune in on the signals carrying information of interest.

            Wise words CO.

            I like to show appreciation for people whose contribution I value. I learned this lesson the hard way when I was young when a close friend wrote himself off in my old car. Had I known that I would not always been able to speak to him, I would have been slightly more generous as it means something to the receiver and costs the giver little. Stress that I only mean genuine appreciation and not false praise as is so prevalent nowadays.

            Generally I ignore trolls. But sometimes you get out of bed on a different side and take a bat to them. ;-)

            The greatest respect is reserved for those who try and engage their brains. I love the company of people who are cleverer than I am and never feel threatened. It is the best way to learn. I steal from them without taking that which enriches them to bend a quotation to the purpose. Who steals my moniker steals trash :-)

    LIBOR rate rigging is beginning to see some movement now, this video from July 2012 is worth watching if not seen before. Made just after Diamond resigned, it discusses the issues, real implications and gives a colorful cross section of opinion:

    It also demonstrates that the IEA are less than objective in their position and also complicit in covering up fraud of this nature.

    This was not a victimless crime: Ask any small business who purchased an ‘interest rate swap’ assured that rates could vary both up or down, and then were stung when the people who sold that product colluded to keep rates down. Stung meaning: put out of business or forced to mis-allocate capital in such a way that prevented investment, expansion and job creation.

    http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/misselling-scandal-banks-let-off-the-hook-8477891.html

    Note: The IRS mis-selling scandal is much bigger and has done more harm to the real economy than the PPI mis-selling. It is curious the bias in the media coverage. This was also very deliberately action, not a mistake or good intention having unintended consequence.

    From Bloomberg – 31st Jan:

    ‘While we can expect government settlements with the banks to be costly, it’s safe to assume that the ensuing civil litigation will be more expensive still. If, for example, payments on $300 trillion in financial contracts were off by only 0.1 percentage point for a year, plaintiffs could potentially demand compensation for $300 billion in losses. That’s the equivalent of more than four years’ net income for the 16 banks involved in setting Libor in 2008.’

    Worth keeping an eye on this.

      Wow! Some excellent points raised here and also in the clip. I can only begin to address the multiple issues.

      All sorts of problems are voiced which range between the criticism of micro-management in regulation and a return to laissez faire. Neither of these extremes is right in my view.

      No human system is perfect.
      Compared with what happened between 1997 and 2007, the status quo ante seems almost perfect by comparison!

      My companies were big users of LIBOR from it’s inception. It was a wonderful innovation in its time as it enabled a transparent and impartial benchmark for the setting of contracts. Please note I was never a dealer – I just created contracts which used the rate. The m@rket grew in complexity with the growth of collars and caps. Customers who were large users of credit (corporations) were very happy with what we developed as they could take a view and hedge against the worst swings.

      There is no question that at this time (1984 onwards) the rate was set in a perfectly ethical manner.

      To come to the point, this was a good culmination of three centuries of banking tradition where there was regulation which was rarely flouted. Look at what we threw away! Look at the cost to us all of what resulted out of throwing this away!

      As Richard Reid stated not just regulation but supervision and enforcement. When I talk of regulation, I take this as a given. The problem is it all became decoupled.

      Max Kaiser is correct with his hit of peddling in fraud to describe what happened last decade. He is wrong to focus on London.

      Philip Booth was correct in asserting that regulatory tools are poor for dealing with ethical problems.

      The question which nobody answers is how does one get this genie back in the bottle?

      I have some answers. But not for now.

      • 319
        Casual Observer says:

        Whether anyone likes it or not, we are all users of LIBOR. All interest rates are in one way or another tied to it. That LIBOR itself was allowed to be perverted from the central bank rates is of most concern, particularly as a key central bank was involved in that.

        This was likely overlooked by BoE for UK banks as the distortion allowed the commercial banks to project an image of health, and the interest rate difference allows recapitalization of the commercial banks. There are unintended consequencies of this though, and of course moral hazard.

        LIBOR itself has likely been subject to a certain element of ‘sentiment’ adjustment in the past. The way it is constructed, a careful blend from several banks with the extreme ends removed to ensure an unbiased fair value, ensures that without serious collusion the value cannot be moved significantly in one direction or another.

        It would be foolish to assume that key banks have not tried in the past, but the most advantage they could hope for would amount to fractions of a basis point, which is acceptable.

        There is no real regulation of LIBOR though. It is meant to be self regulating. Check FSA guidelines and there is nothing specifically in their about not rigging this rate. Similarly, the Financial Services Act 2002 is somewhat moot on LIBOR and its valuation mechanism.

        Unfortunately that doesn’t absolve anti-trust issues (forgiven in US so far, under investigation in Europe / Canada), RICO (being looked into in US), and outright fraud (being investigated in London / US / Europe / Canada etc.).

        What is also not recognized is that EURIBOR, PIBOR, TIBOR and nearly every other benchmark interbank rate was also being rigged during this period.

        Distorting these interest rates undermines every principal of what could be considered ‘free market action’. It perverts a very fundamental market function of being able to value money: That destroys the ability to value anything with any accuracy, and of course capital mis-allocations will occur on a massive scale as a result.

        The only short to medium term solution is a return to using gold / silver as benchmarks for international trade and price determination, until the money market price discovery mechanism is repaired and credible again.

        London is worth focusing on as regulation as is well known is simply not enforced there. This needs to be cleaned up. When the interview was done, only the BoE had been credibly implicated as being involved.

        It has only recently emerged though that during 2007 Geithner had acted similarly at the Fed, but in a slightly different way:

        http://news.msn.com/politics/colleagues-allege-outgoing-treasury-secretary-leaked-information

        The actions of the BoE / Fed and colluding commercial banks are extremely serious and go a long way to explaining why the hopes of economic recovery are fundamentally flawed.

        Osborn cannot be blamed in the UK now, Brown in the UK only for following advice on full deregulation back in 1997.

        The UK government economic advisers, and entities such as IEA, colluded with covering up this crime. On this basis one will be watching the Pryce trial with even closer interest.

          ‘sentiment’ adjustment point agreed. It is the way the m@rkets work and is as close as we can get to an ultimately impossible ideal.

          If you are correct in Brown only following advice in 1997 then that makes him criminally responsible in my book. The buck stops where exactly… if not with the person who at the time was not slow in claiming all the credit?

          Max Keiser (apologies for earlier misspelling) is IMO following two agendas 1.) himself and 2.) USA which is understandable. The London issue is complex. The change in regulatory environment was wrong and weak. To that extent Keiser was right. Those who rode a coach and horses though it were, in the main, from the USA. Madoff was a product of the USA in every way one could interpret. Don’t visit that on the UK except in a derivative manner.

          Diamond was from the USA. So were so many others.

          I do not wish to demonise the USA as I am a great admirer in so many ways. I hate to even hint in any way that Brown may have had a point but the seeds of this did start in America. Brown claims that because they did, we had to? Wrong. At my school, I would have been caned a few extra times for daring to suggest it and deservedly so.

          Where are the prosecutions? That is a valid point. I would like to see some of these creatures behind bars, not in vengeance but because that is the sanction for breaking the law. Retributive justice would send out a good signal.

          • Casual Observer says:

            Brown is def. responsible for his own actions.

            Proving a crime though is going to be tricky, unless he can be shown to have directly profited. That is possible, however unlikely.

            His Gold sale is another classic example.

            Keiser’s agenda: Yes, but note carefully who he works for: RT. That is significant as are hints about his political ideology which come through in some of his shows. A little like the problems with Chomsky in some respects. Generally though he is sound.

            Back mid last year though, with the info available in public domain (which is really all he would have had) the position he argued was unbiased, and I can confirm he was correct.

            To give an idea of difference in type of fraud possible in London vs. US, consider re-hypothecation. In the US can go maximum 4:1 to original asset valuation. In London can go infinite to one.

            The practice is not one I consider valid, but in infrequently traded instruments it is ‘necessary’ for fair price determination. However it is really only in London that you can get away with claiming a stack of worthless paper (Credit instruments in the main) as being a credible asset of any credible value you choose to back a loan.

            The Madoff Ponzi could only work through such smoke and mirror tactics being available in London. (Madoff is not really important in the broader context. That was just a one off private investment house: Buyer beware.)

            The so called JP Morgan Whale trade most certainly is.

            http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/articles/429218/20130129/exclusive-jpmorgan-bet-against-itself-in-whale-trade.htm

            All of the failures there can be tied back to weak regulation, and lack of enforcement.

            Prosecutions are happening but slowly. It is difficult to prosecute in London, compared to NY, as RICO laws do not exist.

            Under RICO you only need to prove that someone or an organization profited from crimes rather than that individuals took part in the crimes.

            …a habit of pitting people in the bank against each other… Oh boy, don’t I know that one! I am a curious chap. When I know I am being wound up like that I walk away! I have done that in a huge way three times in my life.

            Any normal person would have said I am mad. But it has always played out to my advantage, admittedly in a way I could not have possibly foretold when I did it. I am not trying to make a claim I am clever. I am probably just damned cussed…

            The lesson I have drawn is that most of these people play bluff without knowing their own hand. I may not hold all the cards but removing the opportunity I provide can be very strong. Especially when you walk into the opposition’s den.

            This further relates to a very pressing issue which I should like to take off-piste…

          • Casual Observer says:

            The psychology of the play is very simple. Lewis’ Liars Poker outlines what is going on, but I suspect you do not need to read further. (Mention only for others who may read this and not know.)

            Those ‘normal’ people who play along are either in, or just dupes. They may perceive a comparative advantage but are playing bit roles. As an example, consider the onlookers who stand by and watch whilst the state murders a newspaper seller outside Cornhill.

            That no one tried to stop that, or provide assistance is worrying and provides deep insight into how atrocities perpetrated by governments of the past and future somehow seem to happen without resistance.

            It also explains some of the aspects which have allowed the mess in the financial services to happen as they have.

            In both cases those in authority abused their position, and nobody with authority stepped forward to stop or correct this abuse.

            People will not act without an authority figure to follow, and individuals without authority who do complain (people with cell phone footage / whistle blowers) will be ignored, discredited or otherwise coerced into silence.

    Yet another broken promise/U-turn by the Conservative led coalition.

    Thousands more people will have to pay inheritance tax to help fund long-awaited social care reforms in England, ministers will announce on Monday.

    The inheritance tax threshold is to be frozen at £325,000 for individuals and £650,000 for couples for three years from 2015.

    That will help to fund plans including an expected cap of £75,000 on the costs people in England have to pay for care.

    Labour said that would be “a small step forward for some people”.

    The move on inheritance tax comes despite Chancellor George Osborne’s Autumn Statement pledge, in December, to raise the threshold by 1% – to £329,000 for individuals and £658,000 for couples – in 2015/2016.

        Whereas it is normally the case that politicians will want to keep their powder dry when an election is not imminent, thus having the ability to surprise with their manifesto promises, it seems that Ed’s will be put together by just one thing. Envy. Those who do nothing will always want to feed out of the stores of those who have applied themselves. These latter class of people are then branded by the former as criminals, solely because they worked hard!

        In many cases, their capital will be modest, a family house can easily be worth over a million pounds now. It is nice to have one for sure. But it does not guarantee someone who is at retirement age that they will be able to live at even a comfortable level into their old age. One cannot go to the supermarket and offer the top few bricks off the chimney as settlement for your week’s groceries.

        So Ed will be dealing from envy whilst he has conveniently sidestepped those very duties that others are having to bear. There is a word for that. Hypocrisy.

    I’ll happily pay 50% for the radio, the odd HIGNFY and the odd newsnight. And those Dad’s Army repeats are quite funny. But I think my parents paid for them some 40 years ago.

    Dear BBC,

    Thoroughly enjoyed being sent into a nice relaxed slumber watching various animals frolicking around the Savannah, and thankfully was not treated to an impromptu display of husbandry practices involving the larger specimens.

    However: Please cut the global warming crap. Very irritating. Started subtly with a reference to the desert, then hungry elephants caught in a drought in 2009 (totally fixed 2 years later though you mentioned, after it rained) and then a cut to some logging stuff.

    Now: The logging very good to bring up as deforestation is a problem. But the Global Warming is b/s. That kind of stirred me from my hypnotic state of watching animals running around grass lands.

    Oh, you also forgot to mention that Africa has lots of mineral deposits and is rapidly becoming a major producer of coffee and other cash crop commodities which are of particular interest to certain business’ with links to UK government ex-cabinet members. No mention either of who supplied the weapons to the war which nearly wiped out a park, and certainly no mention of big white hunter Blair’s one man attempt to recolonize the place.

    Still, liked the the bits with the animals, but this in no way justifies the license fee and I did have to switch it off before the credits started. At least now I shall know which bits to skip over on iPlayer.

        the list will probably grow and this whole new bedroom tax notion will compound things further.

          Pre 2010 there would be a high number as well. Suicide would not have been recorded as verdict though, and reporting may have missed.

          It was not widely reported but when care in the community was started towards the end of the 80s and the residential care centers (mainly residential psychiatric hospitals) were emptied, there was a similar pattern of suicides.

          This is just a soft version of the harder and more definite crimes perpetrated by Burnham and Hewitt as per Francis report, between 2001 and 2010.

    The EUSSR,a shady disreputable bunch of commie assholes still wedded to their dream of a communist utopia.
    Now I do think that this dream was destroyed years ago in the cradle of communism mother russia.
    My next question is why in heavens name do we have this subject on the agenda at all.
    Barroso bollocks subscribes to the doctrine of chairman Mao,von rumpy has been proved to be a no mark and cathy ashton was promoting get rid of our means of striking back at nuclear aggressors,what a bunch of quislings these people are.
    what concerns me most is how the people of this country walk up to the polling booths and vote whatever when apparently they have not got a clue as to what goes on.
    To the people of this country I say wake up and see what these political assholes are doing to you and this country.
    Is this the country your forefathers fought and died for to ensure your futures,no it is not,asshole politico’s are selling your country down the river for vested interests from whatever quarter.
    Frankly the future to me looks bleak in that we now have in this country a bunch of couldn’t care less political plonkers running our affairs.
    Can we the people stop this,well I for one doubt it and I do sincerely hope that I am wrong,but we will see.

    Well said Saffron. the white English people that built this country brick by brick are getting mightily pissed off – I hear it at work, in the pub, even in the street. When will they break? Maybe the 5m Romanian and Albanian no marks will tip the balance?

      Nothing will happen because the BBC/Liebore/Guardian and EU alliance will brainwash the white unwashed masses once again.

      Nicky Campbell and Victoria Derbyshire will spit out their lefty bollocks like a Somme machine gun “immigration is good for the Country” (you can bet if the BBC imported Romanian radio presenters on minimum wage they wouldn’t think that) and the NHS would fall apart without foreign workers. Sure like the NHS isn’t fucked already.

        In my part of the world, the BBC pulp I get is already full of mainly soot coloured foreign workers disguised as ‘presenters’ and autocue readers.

        I suppose you lot in what used to be good old Ingerland only see white faces yapping out unintelligible ‘esschury inglish’. Not sure who is best off, but I confess I hardly ever watch that channel anymore.

    Quite funny to see how the BBC spins things. The BBC have totally forgotten who was in charge when the mass murders took place in the NHS, instead the BBC ‘spin’ is Tory cuts will kill more.

    Then we have the horse meat nonsense, fatty Nolan last night was giving some Labour boot airtime to spout her lefty bollocks about how evil Tories blocked her bill to do something about food labelling in the EU Parliament.

    Nolan missing the obvious points, like if it was so important why didn’t Labour do it when in power and of course you can stick any label you like on a packet if it’s sold as beef but contains horse you won’t know unless it’s tested.

    The TRUTH is the EU is at fault, we’re forced to take this shite produced in eastern Europe because our own farmers are prices out of the market by the endless EU regulation that we enforce but the rest of the EU ignore.

    Oy Vey says:

    Confidence among UK businesses hit its lowest level in at least 21 years last month, a survey suggests.

    Accountancy firm BDO, which published the survey, said it suggests the economy will struggle to grow in the first quarter of this year.

    That is despite signs of improvement in the labour market, it said, with firms intending to hire more staff.

    The survey gauges optimism in business performance and the economy over the next six months.

    BDO’s Optimism Index fell to 88.9 in January, well below the score of 95 needed to indicate growth.

    That is the lowest level recorded since the survey was launched in 1992.

    Peter Hemington, a partner at BDO, said the findings suggested businesses were becoming used to the lack of sustained growth in the UK economy.

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.”
