            Hi Cat. Just noticed your comment about Don McCrickard. I didn’t know him personally as I was just making my way through the TSB ranks at the time he was CEO. Whilst he had a good reputation I lost respect for him after he sacked Brian Brown, CEO of TSB Insurance, for having the temerity to make more from insurance in a year than the bank could make.

            I knew of Brown but, as far as I remember, did not meet him. Neither do I recall his departing at the hand of McCrickard. It would not surprise me though.

            My approach to the industry was that of a meritocrat. I was happy to get as far as people recognising that I had a use and I treated all others under my leadership in the same way.

            That had two contrasting effects. When we were developing POS facilities for offering credit 24/7, that meant that being ahead of the game meant that I was never short of people asking me for help and I profited well from it so I never complain. When the world of banking changed to sub-prime, CDOs and all that tripe, my cries of impending disaster were treated as if I were Cassandra (regrettably without the beauty!) and I became ignored.

            In order to live under meritocracy, one has to have some experience of the core product. Under a politicised system, it is who you know and not what you know which counts.

            Until people learn how to recognise excellence again, I do not see a return to such days. For me Farage is the one exception currently in politics. If I had to take a punt, I would say Jenkins at Barclays is onto the right line. He still has to produce the profits though so early days.

    Rob Ford was a controversial choice as mayor.

    This is nothing compared to the corruption scandal that followed him into office, and broadly saw him out.

    Toronto is about the most corrupt city in Canada, ranking marginally behind Montreal. Less P3d0 stuff in Ontario compared Quebec, but a place not to do business.

    It is also a liberal left shit hole.

    Now, if Ford is rightly arrested and put through the system, for real one hopes that the c’unt is r@ped seven different ways by at least 14 different guys. In parallel.

          Your Friendly Neighbourhood North American Historical Analysis Service says:

          Canada is what happened when The Thirteen Colonies failed to conquer the St Lawrence Valley in the War of Independence and expelled their Loyalists there and to the land north of the Great Lakes in 1783, and then the new US failed to conquer them (again) in the North American theatre of the Napoleonic Wars in 1812-14. The Loyalists of that era may fairly be compared to Britons of today who do not want to leave the EU, based on an “it’s a devil-you-know future, versus a devil-you-don’t-know future” analysis. Differences between Canadian and US perceptions of government power and individual liberties stem from these formative experiences. Roughly in modern UK terms vis-a-vis the EU and powers/liberties, the Loyalists/Canadians are the British political establishment and allies, the British public are the majority of British North Americans who were fine with however these conflicts turned out so long as they didn’t stand to lose anything personally, and the Rebels/Americans are the “UK Out!” faction.

            In summary:

            The Canadians were the pussy’s who hid behind the Crown, and the American’s stood up for their own and won.

            Which is why Canada sucks and America rules.

            There was a tax issue as well back then which was somewhat important. However the Canadian’s did let in a whole bunch of reds that were otherwise being exterminated.

            Now the Canadians are continuing that tradition of First Nations annihilation in the modern age because they don’t want to give them proper land rights. (We did warn the chaps running up there about that…)

            No disrespect, UK is way better than Canada.

            Pretty much. Not quite socialist though, just usually a little less liberal. Not usually into crack though.

            Cutting through the more direct remarks of others, there is a lot of corruption in Toronto’s governance and other aspects of Ontario provincial government.

            I think all Ford was meant to have done was pass the costs of the transit system over to the province and do something about the out of control pensions to get the city finances under control.

            That he may have failed on which would have a knock on effect up through the Provincial government, and directly to PM Harper, who is a Conservative. This Crack issue could have bigger effects, but unlikely as most Canadians are happy to put up with their politicians misdemeanors: This current episode could well be forgiven.

            They are trying to keep a lid on the involvement of Canadian financial companies in the LIBOR / TIBOR / EURIBOR rigging the other year, and they have very likely been instrumental in helping to facilitate some of the oil market price rigging that is being investigated in London.

            Fun facts: The Enron fraud was facilitated primarily by Canadian banks.

            The Canadian airbus scandal explains why Air Canada have airbus as their national carrier, rather than Boeing: An uneconomic arrangement which benefited the EU during the 90s, however was facilitated quite literally by cash in brown envelopes.

            If you wish to do business in Canada, make sure you have a good supply of anonymous brown envelopes and cash to fill them with. They do not like traceable money, eg. Cheques.

            The guys who took the video are screwed either way. The video above does suggest that Ford may have been a bit late with his Tr!ad subs. :-D

          There is a hotel on King / Yonge which is cheap for business trips, and quite high spec, and the cops turn a blind eye to the hookers in the bar. Quite cheap as well, hookers not bad.

          Let your bank know if you are going to Toronto as they will likely freeze your card immediately as Canada is #1 black spot for card fraud experienced by UK issuers.

Or, these guys with fricking useless English, on the other end of a fricking intercom at a drive thru MacDonalds.

            That is in the city. Outside of the city Hortons can be considered an Oasis of sorts, but only because there is no other fricking choice.

            Chalet Swiss is the place to go generally for cheap food. Find one with majority white staff and the service will be good, and you will not have the manager called over in an attempt to humiliate if you do not tip at 30%. Try to do at least 10 as those guys are generally busing tables in order to get through school.

            There is a politically correct infection there which needs to be lanced pronto. Makes London look sane in comparison: Suspect it has something to do with the Eastern European hordes and presence of Fabians.

      Google Translate says:

      Immi’s can go online and do the translation themselves if they do not have good English.

      This will help those who cannot speak English pick it up fast, and will ultimately help with integration as they will need to speak to a native speaker at some point.

      Most of us natives are actually more than willing to help out a newcomer get the basics down, provided we judge the individual to be polite, honest and clean. And if we have the time available and do not feel it is being wasted.

      Translating all documents does harm as it prevents this important aspect of integration.

      You also miss the point that the vast majority of chaps who come to the UK usually have a higher standard of English than the natives as most have been taught English as a second language in their home countries by education systems better funded and more advanced than that which exists in the UK, particularly by the time Labour left office.

      The notion that new migrants to the UK need these sort of services is deeply divisive and wrong.

It does not need to go and see silly little Hollywood films glorifying the rather complimentary re-writing of its history. It’s vast, vast contribution to the world is desperately concealed by the self-hating left, but is acknowledged by wiser, more self-respecting nations such as Japan.

    It doesn’t need to desperately scrape together, with tragically over-inflated pride, a pitifully short short-list of influential figures and ‘inventors’ such as Watt. Such self-evident national pre-eminence for centuries of modern history does not require such hollow, desperate measures.

      “The failure of the colonization project provoked tremendous discontent throughout Lowland Scotland where almost every family had been affected. Many held the English responsible while believing that they could and should assist in yet another effort at making the scheme work. The company petitioned the King to affirm their right to the colony; however, he declined and replied that, though he was sorry that the company had incurred such huge losses, to claim Darien would mean war with Spain. The continuing futile debate on the issue served to further increase bitter feeling.

      Hoping to recoup some capital by a more conventional venture, the company sent two ships from the Clyde, the Speedy Return and the Continent, to the Guinea coast laden with trade goods. Sea captain Robert Drummond was the master of the Speedy Return; his brother Thomas, who had played such a part in the second expedition, was supercargo on the vessel. Neither ship was seen in Scotland again. Instead of seeking to sell for gold as the company’s directors intended, the Drummonds exchanged the goods for slaves which they sold in Madagascar. Carousing with the buccaneers for whom the island was a refuge, the Drummonds fell in with the pirate John Bowen of Bermuda who offered loot if they lent the Scots ships to him for a raid on homeward bound Indiamen. Robert Drummond was initially persuaded but backed out of the agreement, only for Bowen to appropriate the ships while he was ashore. The Continent was lost to fire on the Malabar coast and Bowen scuttled the Speedy Return after transferring to a merchant ship he had taken. The Drummonds decided against returning to Scotland to explain the loss of the ships they had been entrusted with, and no more was heard of the brothers.”

      I would say ‘a pattern is emerging’, but it’s more of an ‘irrefutable template’?

      You must be having trouble with the automated symposiarch tonight.

      Our long history of fighting off oppressors has been made that much easier by the 25 miles of water separating us from the continent. It also forced us to dominate the seas. It gave us the independence to allow science and industry to flourish whilst others were having their revolutions, ours being got out of the way so much earlier.

      The peak was in Victorian times. Since then we have seen a decline in our power and wealth which was only reversed, for a time, by Margaret Thatcher. We have virtually squandered her legacy away. Churchill saved us in the war but, in the lead-up to it, we were failing to notice that we were getting behind and so the Third Reich was able to rearm under our very noses. Shamefully, we kicked the old man out even before the war was completed.

      So we have a long history of dominance followed by a century of almost unbroken wilful carelessness about the dangers we have faced. How much longer will we escape from these ever present dangers merely by relying on the right person to come along and pull our chestnuts out of the fire?

Russia Today is a cauldron of bullsh*t. The only people that take it seriously are deluded conspiracy theorists. Other RT journos have resigned citing the same reasons.

It’s about as believable as Press TV, KCNA of North Korea or the Daily Mirror.
