Call Clegg Is On

As of 1pm this afternoon LBC sources have confirmed to Guido that tomorrow morning’s Call Clegg is on. It was brought forward a day due to Thursday’s by-election, and there is no word of him pulling out over at LBC towers.

Popcorn for breakfast…

        Guide to breeds and general information.

        The Custard Dog:

        The Custard Dog looks quite cute and cuddly and resembles a trainable working dog.

        However, the Custard Dog breed makes neither a good working dog or is noticably loyal, to any degree.
        It is prone to sexual promiscuity with any breed of any age and must be watched constantly for signs of stealing other dogs food and mating with dogs of either sex.
        The Custard dog is also prone to running off when let off the lead and then turning on it’s owner, this trait ( Cleggism ) is also associated with the breed and owners should be catious at all times when handling the hound.

        Much is made of the breeds famously sympathetic demeanour, however most Custard Dogs are usually supremely selfish and do nothing of any value except for themselves.

        Custard Dogs have above average cases of obesity, though size varies greatly from the Rennard strain, to the diminutive Teather variety. It cannot be stressed enough however, that these dogs do not make good pets and can turn on anyone in the household, often without warning.

        In summary:

        The Custard Dog, though superficially an attractive looking animal, has quite a few tempermental difficulties ( identified as Huhneism’s ) and is not suitable for normal families, or to be let off a very tight lead, or anywhere near other pets, their food or anything that is likely to provoke a jealous reaction ( Cableism ).

        Potential owners purchase one, at their own risk.

          Custard dogs are best suited to battersea dogs home for a week, and thereafter a swift injection (known as a Stafordodian) after which they make a splendid contribution to London’s carbon eco credentials heating hot water for the old people’s home. An appropriate carbon neutral solution benefiting all parties.

    Paul Tucker gets my vote !!!!

    Bank of England deputy governor Paul Tucker has said negative interest rates should be considered.

    The Bank rate has been at a record low of 0.5% for almost four years.

    A negative interest rate would mean the central bank charges banks to hold their money and could encourage them to lend out more of their funds.

      And then further fuc.k people who actually have savings!!? – With your flair for economics, you will one day be a LieBore Chancellor, and then, who knows….. you too could become an unelected, unwanted P.M. without being voted in, you spavined, pasty faced, shirt lifting tosser.

    Casual Observer says:

    Someone pointed out the negative interest rates BBC article a couple of threads back.

    This has happened to nominal rates in Japan since the 90s, usually on real JGB yields rather than an official central bank rate.

    It is a little more common than realized these days, but there is a difference between a peculiarities that can affect the yield curve on the overnight market, and official central bank policy.

    Japan is attempting to set an official negative rate policy at present.

    This means that it will cost you to hold foreign debt.

    In part this should help coerce holders of foreign debt to sell this back to an entity in the country of issue. eg. QE3 with negative nominal rates set for gilts would allow Bo.E to more easily purchase foreign held gilts as foreigners would wish to sell.

    Telegraphing this kind of intention will help keep yield stable as it indicates that with the recent AAA loss the UK is very serious about its debt obligations.

    The effect on the yield curve would keep the time cost of debt down in a similar way to that which previous QE programs have.

    There will be some odd effects on other parts of the market, particularly the Repo, but talk of such a move indicates that Treasuries are wishing to recall the debt they have issued. This is obviously signalling a major change in international trade is coming up, that certain trade patterns want to be unwound, and should be a very positive upward driver for gold.

    Google ci10-5.html for an NY Fed 2003 study.

    This from 1998 covers what happened in Japan:


    The head of Japan’s opposition party, Shinzo Abe, was openly calling for Bo.J to set explicit -ve rates late last year.

      Thanks for that Cas. – That explanation makes it a little easier to see the motivation for the BoE – but what are the downsides likely to be for us bank users? I’m thinking of savings, pensions, ISA’s (I know it’s a plural, but it looks WRONG as ISAS)??????

    Truth says:

    It is not fair that Calamity can get air time when a by-election is on, further proof that our Political system is corrupe and rotten to the core, I hope that people of Eastleigh vote for anyone rather than the three main dictatorial Parties, we rely on you people of Eastleigh to show these troughing pigs that we want them and the system OUT.
