    OK. It is time to look at a wide issue through a narrow viewpoint: Socialism and our very own Moussa Kousa.

    I will point out how the errors of the individual are magnified into huge problems by those who pay insufficient attention to the facts.

    More will follow on this page…

    Something to discuss today:

    Slightly O/T, but…

    has anybody else noticed that the next Secretary to the US Treasury (yes he’s the one whose signature appears on their banknotes) is a certain Mr Few?

    He is renowned for having a completely illegible signature which looks like a line of loooooops. He has been instructed to learn how to write properly before he is let loose on the Dollar.

    As it happens, his given name is ‘Jacob’, but it really should be [one of the] ‘Chosen’.

    Geddit?

    …very droll, Ex Pat ( still taking from the UK tax pot ) Catty.

    Apologies for my earlier misspelling but let’s look at the content:

    Moussa takes exception to me living abroad. Yet I do not take exception to him living in Manchester. Or Birmingham. Or London. Or wherever he happens to reside in his palatial splendour or, more likely, garret. Indeed it would be most unreasonable of me if I did.

    So why his hang up about where I chose to live? I don’t need his permission any more than he needs mine. In a Socialist world though, you are not permitted to take these decisions upon yourself. You do as you are told. And the petty henchmen of the glorious state are fond of telling you You can’t do this! or Stop that!

    To make it worse, the apparatchiks often have never had a real job or experienced real life themselves.

    So he is behaving true to form.

    But there is more. Much more…

    Watch UKIP as well slowly slip into the mire of Brit political corruption, like a carrot on a stick in front of donkey. Farage has been doing it for years, and he bad mouths the EU, the hand that has fed him for years. Hypocrite.

    No probs Cat, agree with what you said. Hard facts get watered down and get foggy over days, with people who want to corrupt the blatant truth. Has always gone on, and will still go on, but before it took history books to do it, now it takes a few hours with our modern technology, and no one knows what the actual truth right after it has just happened, if you get me Cat.

    Ah some reaction from both sides. Good!

    Moussa’s political party of choice is the glorious Labour Party. You know, the one which believes in blind obedience to the EU (legal entity). Interestingly, they were once dead against the EEC (trade) but suddenly realised that the Frankfurt School was not in England. Their purposes in restricting choice could be better achieved inside the fold. So they switched opinions to suit.

    So, for better or worse, any UK citizen (I still prefer the terminology Her Majesty’s subjects!) has every right to live anywhere he, or she, so pleases within the European Union just as Manchester. Or Birmingham. Or London. Or wherever…

    If Moussa Koussa had more wits about him, he could be sunning himself beside the sea and working to buy a cheaper property, having a nice girlfriend (or two) and not being a miserable curmudgeon on these pages. Maybe he would have a small boat and a nice Ferrari if he applied himself a bit. But as one of his probable heroes, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, said Man is born free, and everywhere he is in chains. Poor Moussa. He does likes his chains – providing others are wearing them.

    That is not all…

    How is it that some people can be so wrong so many times? We saw it with Gordon. Moussa has obviously modelled himself on this great gurning statesman…

    I have a great dentist in the next village. She is the first one I have ever trusted to give me a filling without anaesthetic.

    She is not expensive and a visit typically costs £25-£30 with some treatment.

    I would far rather pay that and be comfortable than use a free (ha! ha!) NHS dentist who just wants to push me though the system so he can claim from the state and does not really care about my sensitivity.

    Moussa could never understand that and would love to allocate me to a known butcher.

    But I stand for choice and he does not.

    Instead of blowing other people’s money on a life of booze + f@gs, Labour’s supporters should venture out into the wider world and realise that the way things are done here in the UK are not necessarily the best.

The liberal media are pathetic and the BBC should be closed down. If 50% of your trade is with the EU that is a vulnerability not a strength.

    Thanks for that link grass. I do use my vote and will continue to do so but no longer for the Conservatives whilst they are trying to be Blair mark II.

    The thing is that life is not a dress rehearsal so you have to decide how your own interests are best served in the time that you are active enough to pursue them.

    It is wrong to take someone’s vote away when the have contributed to the system for all their working lives. Perhaps by returning again to being UK resident for a short time would set the clock rolling again. It seems to strike against EU law, which I am not against using in one’s favour, if it furthers one’s cause.

In the US they want to know which insurance company to send their bill to and bills there can rapidly become stratospheric.

    For SC: The MMKMx issue you highlite.

    Most should be aware that the individual uses a moniker derived from the name of Qadaffi’s ex Foreign Minister who was also responsible at some time for the Libyan Intelligence agency.

    The individual sought refuge in the UK in 2011 after fleeing Libya, and now lives in Qatar. He was educated at UMich in East Lansing MI, so likely has liberal left Democrat leanings politically.

    Broken down: He was clearly a Western mole in the old regime, with strong links to Europe, and perhaps is being kept incubated in Qatar for possible return to run Libya when things have settled down. That is if he is not assassinated or otherwise dies first.

    By virtue of his position, and what has happened to the country, he has clearly demonstrated that he does have Libyan blood on his hands so there will be folk out there with, shall we say, not his best intentions at heart.

    These folk, if they figure the European involvement, should perhaps take some of their grievances directly to Brussels.

    Wouldn’t take too much to heart from an individual who appears to be supportive of this type of individual. Great to see the exchanges though, and for the protege of Koussa to demonstrate a similar level of intelligence, given that the real Koussa apparently failed to see the Civil war in his country coming.

    Thanks PoI

    I am both north and south of the Alps which, to be honest, has more to do with accessibility matters than financial planning, though that did play a part.

    The nicest part is that the people we now have as friends in these areas are the nicest you would wish to meet. They are open minded and welcoming whilst also surprisingly conservative (small c) and law abiding.

    Our own in-house MK obliging condenses so many of the big EU/Bolshevik/Frankfurt School issues into life-sized chunks which are obviously faulty. I have a secret theory he is actually a right wing troll with a great sense of irony!

    He came across as rather ” tired and emotional” I’m sure that wasn’t the case. He sort of faded away after the first 10 minutes either from the effects of the hot studio lights or the fact that he suddenly realised that rather than coming cross as a humourous bloke able to take some personal ribbing by the panel that he was in fact looking like an utter tw*t.

    Hislop, Merton and Jo Brand ran rings round him although they soon realised that not too much effort was required by them and they just let him dig his own pit of embarassment

    Star Wars Episode VII : The surge of UKIP says:

    After years of being conned by a corrupt political elite the people of the UK figured out that the EU was a vile waste of money which they should have no further part in.

    The resurgent Sith Lords, Barosso and van Rumpoy, poor genetic clones derived from the singed pubic hair fragments which were all that remained of the once feared Palpatine / Vader, had attempted to reinstate the evil communist empire through a contrived trade control system.

    The first real crack appeared when the wookie, Grillo, rose in !taly. This awoke the long slumbering Conservative right in the UK, aka Jedi, on a quest of sovereign liberation which became known as The surge of UKIP.

    Obviously SC, you must still be in your ‘youth’ when it comes to being resident abroad.
    Returning to the UK to re establish UK residency and the ability to vote again however attractive would invite a myriad of administrative problems.
    Perhaps you might view this as willingly burying my head in the sand but then would I wish to be associated again with-
    1 an electorate that was too blind to spot Bliar for what he was;
    2 Not to see Clegg for what he attempted to be;
    3- Give up my UK citizenship to vote for the European mafia here in exchange for hoped for promises back in Blighty;
    4- Temporarily Reliquish rides in my Ferrari lawn mower and Lamborghini tractor [one’s bright red and the other’s orange]
    5- pay UK cost of living;
    6.- be forced to learn a further range of foreign languages just to communicate with a local plumber, postman, shopkeeper, etc etc

    Some of us must suffer the consequences of our earlier balanced actions.
    I will suffer in relative silence and just continue the occasional w[h]ine.
    Not all my working life was spent in the UK but even so it touches one’s heartstrings to watch your country of birth going down the tubes without the ability to alter its demise.

    Habsburg territory. They were extremely civilised people and it is at times like stepping back into the Edwardian era in terms of manners and sensibilities. Like MT, I am a bit of a radical, much more than I am a conservative, but they do not seem to take that amiss. Ironically, the Empire fell apart as a result of it not being integrated, so sometimes one can’t win either way!

    In the Maghreb and the middle east the west has failed to identify the struggle between secular states and Islamic ones and it seems to me that our naive push for democracy has ended up tipping most of the first category into the second, Egypt being a prime example.

    East meets West has been a tinderbox for ages in the entire region and of course has also extended into the Balkans. We appear to learn nothing from misguided interventions here and maybe in the years to come, the British Protectorates of Egypt and Palestine will become regarded as shining examples of what used to be possible…

    Yes grama (one ‘l’ I see now!)

    I am six this month in those terms.

I frequently conduct conversations on the phone (more difficult with no face or gesture indicators.)

    Concur with your points completely. I did my best whilst I was there to change peoples minds, leading by example, but there comes a time when you say, this can now become someone else’s fight.

    Before he died at the age of 97, my father (RN officer retired after 29 year’s service including WWII) responded in a most uncharacteristic way to me. I had said to him that, due to the change in the national identity, I would no longer be prepared to lay down my life for my country in the case of war.

    Dismantling the old stability pacts which had kept the dictators in place was always going to be touch and go.

    The only error on the Wests part is to have tried to quell the religious forces unleashed as the secular states fell, as appears to be happening now, allowing those forces to play out and find equilibrium with the people is the best policy.

    Intervention in order to impose foreign moral values / systems of government certainly is not going to work, and it is good this is not being done. Syria is a case in point.

    As Blair / Bush proved in !raq, the demolish the old order and let them fight it out for a new order approach is not a good one to follow either.

    Blair will ultimately be judged on his interventionism, which is why the West Sahara deterioration is notable. Sierra Leone was perhaps the only time the policy achieved what could be termed success, but that success was so short lived that it perhaps should be considered failure.

    Could Blair be the first ex UK Prime Minister to see all of his work fail or be reversed before he dies ?

    Film Buff says:

    Tax breaks are the only way films become profitable to shoot on location. It is the same everywhere.

    Eg. A lot of films which you think are shot in NYC or Chicago, are actually shot in Toronto as they allow them a zero rated status in that city.

    If Tax break in UK had not beaten say France, then Star Wars would be shot in France.

    Osborne would be right to celebrate this if the policy is to keep the tax allowance in place for a good few years. That would allow some sustainable job development in this industry and make UK a good location for filming.

    As soon as the tax arrangement changes, the production companies will move elsewhere.

    Google up ‘Hollywood Accounting’ to get an idea about how the finances of film production work.

    One of the main problems is lack of discipline & respect on the Wards, with a lot of the Staff behaving as if they are at Butlins. Most of the ward Sisters are useless & too many staff are either too young, or can’t speak English properly.

    Hi Rats!

    I know you are one of the good guys and to be fair there are probably bad guys in any system.

    Your point about discipline & respect is spot on. The Sisters of some decades ago grew up with a different ethos. When I was young, they had all seen war times and these qualities were essential. It is understandable that with prolonged peace, the standards should have changed but the ones you mention are always necessary in an environment where it can be, literally, a matter of life and death.

    The fact that you mention that demonstrates that you recognise this. The language problem is a big one. In all European countries now, English is taught as the first foreign language. I often find it easier to converse with them in Austria or Germany than I used to in England!

    When I was younger, I knew quite a lot of nurses at one time and boy, did they know how to party when off duty! I am sure it was an outlet for their stress experienced within the job so they needed to let off steam. Completely understandable and how could I have had any objections? :-)

    Usual Politicians hyperbole (George Osborne) to announce that the next Star Wars film will be made in Britain, the truth of the matter is that some of it will be made in Britain, tax breaks kick in over 25% of content (?), so likely that 25.5 % of it will be made in Britain, the bits we do good at, but it still supports jobs and generates income for the country and it is in the nature of film production that it is cross border multi-sourced anyway, scenic locations in one place, set capability in another, CGI, special effects somewhere else. Most of Lord of the Rings trilogy and the Hobbit were filmed in New Zealand, good landscapes was one reason but also good tax breaks for film makers was the main one. If you ever look at the end credits of these big budget films you can see that they do not just employ a few highly paid p*ople. Just Saying.

    So. Time to draw some wider lessons from Moussa’s type of error.

    1. If the answer to every problem is to pass new legislation, then your approach to politics is wrong.

    2. If the law does not forbid you from doing something, then it must be allowed but needn’t become compulsory.

    3. Keep the law simple. Complex law almost never makes the citizen’s lives better. It just makes the lawyers rich. Repeal 20% of the legislation every year for a decade.

    4. Spend within the country’s means and not more so. Balancing the budget within the economic cycle has come to mean borrow what you can’t afford and get someone else to foot the bill if you are no longer in office. If you are miraculously still in office then the only way is to borrow even more. That stops overnight.

    5. Keep the State simple. Limit the payscales of public servants. If they want more they can go out and get private enterprise to pay them (subject to certain rules which will be enforced). Limit the number of chiefs to Indians. Flat management structures are more effective and lead to less empire building.

    6. Pensions of civil service personnel must be capped to an amount related to the OAP.

    7. Everyone in public employment must be able to speak English to a level that they can function properly. Stop translating documents into other continent’s languages.

    8. Offer a 10% development corporation tax to any company manufacturing corporeal goods in the UK. Offer a reduced Employer’s NIC to all such companies. Send some of the pencil pushers out to ensure production is going on and they must get it evidenced. No back-handers.

    9. If any part of this finds opposition from EU bodies, withdraw piecemeal and unilaterally from the treaties under which they endeavour to prevent the will of the British government. They will soon get the message and will have to consider how hard they want to push us. Our exit can be hastened by them which is much smarter than us threatening to withdraw. If we ever go back it will only be on our terms, otherwise not at all. If they want to push us too hard, they bring their own pack of cards down around them.

    10. Give houseowners, every two years, a special banded vote on what level of council tax they are prepared to pay. (They will not be able to vote for no tax at all unless their council has adequate income to cover all its needs.) What they vote for will be legally binding upon their council. If the council needs to raise more then they can raise it from the other earning adults who do not own their property or simply do without. They can call it Poll Tax if they wish.

    Similarly, I do no more than skim the newspapers on-line any more because when you start reading them critically you realise that most of their output is adulterated with left-wing distortion and lies. There is been no major right-wing newspaper in the UK since the Telegraph was got at some years ago.

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
