    I don’t understand, nor much like this cartoon. Any gold bricks emerging from H2S will most certainly not be scattered across the countryside.

    I shall be taking great care about where gold bricks end up.

    Just send them over with a box of Swan Vesta matches as the effect will be the same as launching the UK’s limited stock of cruise missiles at £1 million a time and much much cheaper…the whole region aflame

    A sad, sad situation for Britain and the Conservative party that this idiot is in No.10.

    polygenesis says:

    Only problem with that analogy is that we already have a rail network in place and dont need another, what is needed is investment in the rail network we already have. In 1829 there were no railways, you do understand that HS2 will siphon off all funding away from where its really needed.

    Who needs a powerful armed forces in this day and age? From the day Cameron and his lover Clegg got married in the ‘coalition of the deluded’ they have dismantled the UK armed forces with the fanatical glee of a CND/green party coalition. Tens of billions pissed up the wall on foreign aid for essentials like space programmes for India and Nigeria and Swiss bank accounts for despots, that is what the ‘coalition of the retarded’ is all about.

    Or you could get in your car and Drive up to Brum and go directly to where it is you want to visit rather than pissing about waiting for a connection on Dave’s train set.

    Arriving at a London station is OK as you can just hop on a tube and get to where you want to b e within 30 mins but that ain’t so in Brum. At least the incumbent train network has stations on the way

  33. 33
    Contemporary Swampy talking to George Stephenson (1829) says:

    Yes you could go by car and get stuck in one of the many traffic jams that we Brits love so much. The one thing that is definite is that the number of cars, lorries etc on motorways will continue to increase until the eventual day dawns on people that it is quicker by canal.

    And building new motorways is less of an option than new train lines.

  34. 34
    Gay Dave the Podgy Controller says:

    That’s not correct actually although the Press would have you believe so. The cuts in armed service personnel have all been closely worked through with the chiefs of staff and do not affect operational capability.

    The serious cuts have been in defence procurement and have been a long time coming and a long time needed. Having seen it and worked with it first hand I would say this is only the beginning. But it does depend on how you regard the objectives of defence procurement, to provide first class kit for the armed services or a gravy train for the arms manufacturers and civil service.

    The voice of islamofascism the BBC is moaning about why muslims are being stopped and questioned at airports, apparently its the new high crime for the security services to ask muslim men why they are travelling to terror hot spots.

    What goes on at the BBC when they decide on which stories to investigate? Oh yes lets ignore the mass murder of Christians in Egypt and Syria by islamists and concentrate on why a few suspicious looking muslim men are stopped at airports.

    If we have an enemy in the form of islamofascism we need to include their BBC collaborators as well, of all the things for the BBC to moan and wail about the plight of young muslim men with beards being stopped at UK airports must rank as one of the most ridiculous complaints the islamofascist dominated BBC has ever come up with.

    I do not know whether it is me but the rail workers always seem to be striking about something, retiring at 50 and insisting on time off in addition to maternity and paternity leave.

    What with all the subsidies SNCF gets from the taxpayer I believe it is cheaper to just drive out of Paris top up with a tank of petrol and pay those private companies their inflated toll fees.

    The sort of sums being talked about for the cost of the new ‘high speed’ link, would be better and more effectively spent on upgrading the present system.
    Most of my neighbours who travel by train to work would love a good, reliable and economic service to the Leeds and Manchester conurbations. Services at our local unmanned station have been reduced in an attempt to close it down, we campaigned for years incidently to get a station reopened after the Beeching ‘axe’. The spurious arguement is that less people are using the service( caused by the old trick of reducing the timetable, if there’s no train you can’t use it!) Local passenger and campaigners have recently had some limited success in halting this process. After years of campaigning and negotiating, we are now seeing engineering works in progress to re-establish and renovate existing,but disused track and signal infrastructure to provide services once again out of Lancashire via West Yorkshire to connect with the North West rail system, allowing effective cross Pennine services to Manchester, Merseyside and linking with the national network via that route. Many would argue that this is the most cost effective and sensible use of money to improve rail infrastucture and generate economic activity in the regions and the nation. I feel many residents in some of the leafy tory shireswould also agree.

    Percy says:

    More than likely, I think they are trying to see into the future, with Londonistan airports at their limits with the number of passengers, they see HS2 as very easy alternative to building a another airport as Borus wants, to provide a fast connection to the north (bearing in mind any where north of the M25 is near the North pole) and Scotland. As pointed out they cannot maintain their existing infrastructure (rail and road) any one seen the state of the roads lately or the condition of railways admittedly vastly improved upon from a very low base ~40 years ago. What these planners do not seem to get through their heads is that you can build a fast like road or rail between 2 or more points but if the approaches to the destination are not provided for you get the blockages. When Dave Caves goes (first Class of course) on a rail journey everything will beheld up so his train runs smoothly and bang on time, so he sees no problem.

    Often wondered if all those Parliamentary bills to build railroads going back too 1830s are they still in force, and is all that abandoned railroad land is still classed as a railroad , have the bills been taken back to Parliament to cancel and how many are still in force, I think it will really upset Tesco and the rest of the supermarkets if the bills are still valid, the latest a train route thru a supermarket, just think of the marketing opportunities, most people seem to want to drive cars around supermarkets why not a station in them .

    That is the stupidity of this government. All new development is to be put outside our towns and cities as we concrete over the green patches around them.

    Yet the major new transport link is to stop only in the centre of the cities that we will not redevelop properly.

    The link will be just for people, yet those people will be living outside the cities in the larger houses in the green field sites that give the best profits to the builders.

    These days Ch!na can offer turn key solutions at a fraction of the cost of out of date inferior quality European firms.

    There is no point in wasting money keeping wasteful European contractors and labour going. For the Keynes effect to work the investment must be domestic. For sensible technology upgrade and more efficient labour one should go with Ch!na not Europe.

    “A leading seismologist today confirmed earthquakes felt by Fylde coast residents were a “natural event” – and not part of any activity by gas firms in the area.

    Shocked residents who felt two tremors yesterday morning had questioned whether they were connected to seismic testing currently being carried out by Halite Energy in Knott End or previous exploratory drilling work by shale gas firm Cuadrilla Resources Ltd.

    Philip Mitchell, of Blackpool and Fylde Green Party, has called for a “proper investigation into what caused” the tremors.

    But Glenn Ford, seismologist at the British Geological Survey, said: “These earthquakes appear to be no different from the few hundred or so natural events that are recorded by the BGS seismograph network every year and there is no reason to conclude they are cause of any fracking processes.”

    Go by canal. You must be kidding. THIS government has seen to it that the canals will die.

    Imagine an industrial site built for commercial use, like a port. One designed in the days before H&S, where safety was supplied by the skilled workers and the sheer number of people living and working on the site.

    Now take that site and force by law the removal of all knowledgeable people. Sell off all the houses built to house the workers that over see the dangerous workings. Force all the workers off site and out of sight. In fact remove all the people possible without providing a substitute way of monitoring.

    Now encourage all the unfamiliar ignorant people to ride bikes at high speed around the dangerous workings. Let children play on the working with no adult in sight. Rent out the old industrial vehicles to drunk holiday makers that have no concepts of the force required to stop 20 tonnes. Have deep water pools and no means of escape. Facilitate the tipping of all waste and rubbish on the site by the removal of any people that can observe.

    Would any government with any sense support these actions. So why did they put the canals in the hands of the clearly incompetent charity.

    Found this elsewhere, although my sympathies are with the poor British taxpayer not the German voter.

    “The poor German voter, though likely to vote Angela back into power next month, is becoming increasingly unwilling to bear the brunt of Greece’s next bailout – likely, when it comes to it, to be significantly larger than the figure now being ‘leaked’ by the Commission. And since German investors also have the most to lose from a ‘haircut’ on the Greek banks this is not too popular an option either. The latest wheeze is to increase an EU handout of structural funds – ERDF as we know it in the UK – by the value of the bailout, allowing Greece to use existing domestic funds for the bailout. Except of course that non-Euro nations such as the UK pay for ERDF.

    ERDF has traditionally been the mechanism by which tax funds from northern Europe are transferred by the EU to the Mafia and other criminal organisations and to bent and corrupt politicians across the Olive belt. The remainder is used to build motorways going nowhere and unused airports. Greece is a nation notoriously infested with bent and corrupt politicians, who no doubt have recently been feeling the pinch in the proceeds of theft, fraud and peculation. The latest bail out will be designed to buy-back their loyalty to the Commission. Getting the UK to contribute to this is the icing on the cake for Merkel.”

    The evidence is not sufficiently strong to say one way or the other WHO is responsible says:

    The more you pause to think about this issue(which Cameron & Co don’t want the public to do in their rush to war in case they differ in their opnion)it’s more likely that radical islamist elements of the “Opposition” carried out the chemical attack.Let’s face it these guys wouldn’t worry about the odd few hundred women and kids being killed in their jihad to form an islamist state. Their aim is to gull the gullible western democracies to launch an attack against Assad and create the scenario where they involve the whole region.

    Cameron and Hague have fallen for the line totally and HOW can Hague say that he knows the the Assad Regime was responsible when the UN Inspectors cannot say that ? No one knows definitely who actually committed the atrocity. There is simply not enough evidence to justify military action being taken.

    Hague would do better to shut the fuck up and stop inflaming the situation. Nothing is going to be achieved by lobbing a few expensive Cruise Missiles at targets in Syria just the opposite and in any event nobody knows whether Russia has supplied the Assad Regime with state of the art missile shield and it would be tad ironic if the Syrians shot down the missiles in flight. What would Cameron and Hague do then ?

    Looks bad in VBA, but it may have been done for performance reasons.

    Remember that VBA gets compiled down to a thoroughly mangled COM / C++ by the interpreter at run time, so counter intuitive high level usually indicates performance boost at run time.

    Be aware that if else blocks usually run a lot slower than sequential if blocks.

    This is usually fixed in decent C / C++ compilers with optimization, and Java also handles better now (from 1.6 onwards)

    What is desired for performance / stability (important in multi-threaded) is to ensure that the execution stack proceeds sequentially with minimal jumps or memory paging.

    VBA compiler really makes a mess of this from what I recall, and COM automation (which is what VBA is) has many other issues to be concerned about.

    ‘Numpty’ style code in other interpreted languages is usually also there for this reason.

    If you look at what is going on memory / security wise you may not wish to use this MS software period.

    That being said, the police investigations into the historical abuse which did go on need to be stepped up, and Hague does have some serious questions to answer over his handling of North Wales, which regrettable does not look like anything except a shameless cover up, but mainly at the behest of a local authority whose insurers were going to refuse to cover the liability.

    A good example of a real investigative journalist from the days when the Mirror was good (before it started competing with the Sun…) and tracking his career one can see the pattern of how these guys were sidelined / bought off.

    Encouraging aspiring journo’s to follow his model would be a benefit to all.

    Cannot find on uTube anymore, but his take down of a moronic Australian TV journalist who was interviewing him on some serious topics a few years ago was classic.

    Very polite, when Pilger got the message across he was not impressed, the idiot news caster backed into a corner and asked what he thought she should do.

    Maybe, but that’s not the way that Liberal-Democracies work. These operate by rule of law where the laws protect business and individual human freedoms. If the law doesn’t explicitly proscribe behaviours, then they are legal. Morality doesn’t come into it, as it is illegal to infringe people’s Human Rights etc. Do you see what I am saying? I don’t think many people fully understand this. That’s how the system works. It abuses people’s naivety and lack of understanding of the political system they live under. Some, of course, say that’s precisely what’s good about it. People can make free choices they say. That’s why such (right-wing libertarian) people don’t like the empirical evidence about the true nature of diversity where many people function like grown up children and need protection by the state because of how they are physically made.

    We live in an anti socialist society. Most don’t see the relationship between that, ASBOs and crime etc. It’s the price of economic anarchism, and that’s all the ‘choice’ you’ll get next month, i.e. economic-anarchist soft centres, with red, blue or yellow wrapping.

    Point of Information 4 says:

    I dispute your analysis, but not the point you are arguing towards.

    i) Democracies give way to Tyranny. This is very evident now. See Plato.

    ii) Morality has not part in politics. See Machiavelli among others for detail and reasoning.

    iii) Morality is centrally important on the issue of infringing human rights. The statutory legal framework is a fiction which is only as good as its enforcement. Common / Natural law are where fundamental rights are ‘defined’ but only in so much as there is a consensus among men to organize society in a certain way.

    – Incidentally: The morality aspect here goes directly to the libertarian position.

    Strong moral codes are self enforcing and much stronger than pure rules based reasoning.

    iv) The state is a tool that society uses to run certain aspects of itself. It should reflect the values and character of the society at large.

    A state which dictates and attempts to shape the society which created it is a state run amok, and reflects an erosion of democracy as it transforms to tyranny.

    The libertarian arguments for reduced size of state are important in order to limit the negative effects.

    v) The state impacting on peoples lives unnecessarily represents the daily attack on basic human rights within the UK.

    Economic anarchism is not the cause of current economic problems, it is the state intervening in the economy, whether to ‘stabilize prices’, actively distribute wealth or totally mis-allocate capital through a benefit system which has caused the current problems.

    Anarchism of state expansion and oppression is the real negative that is causing a deterioration of living conditions in the UK.

    vi) The introduction of ASBO etc. in order to silence and oppress would be dissidents has increased crime figures artificially.

    This is expected with policies that arbitrarily criminalize the younger generation whose political expression is not in tune with an unnatural political order which is being enforced quite un-democratically on the people of the UK.

    tn01 says:

    What is the West’s real agenda? This is the unasked and unanswered question. Clearly, the US, UK, and French governments, which have displayed continuously their support for dictatorial regimes that serve their purposes, are not the least disturbed by dictatorships. They brand Assad a dictator as a means of demonizing him for the ill-informed Western masses. But Washington, UK, and France support any number of dictatorial regimes, such as the ones in Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, and now the military dictatorship in Egypt that is ruthlessly killing Egyptians without any Western government speaking of invading Egypt for “killing its own people.”

    Clearly also, the forthcoming Western attack on Syria has nothing whatsoever to do with bringing “freedom and democracy” to Syria any more than freedom and democracy were reasons for the attacks on Iraq and Libya, neither of which gained any “freedom and democracy.”

    The Western attack on Syria is unrelated to human rights, justice or any of the high sounding causes with which the West cloaks its criminality.

    The Western media, and least of all the American presstitutes, never ask Obama, Cameron, or Hollande what the real agenda is. It is difficult to believe than any reporter is sufficiently stupid or gullible to believe that the agenda is bringing “freedom and democracy” to Syria or punishing Assad for allegedly using chemical weapons against murderous thugs trying to overthrow the Syrian government.

    Of course, the question wouldn’t be answered if asked. But the act of asking it would help make the public aware that more is afoot than meets the eye. Originally, the excuse for Washington’s wars was to keep Americans safe from terrorists. Now Washington is endeavoring to turn Syria over to jihad terrorists by helping them to overthrow the secular, non-terrorist Assad government. What is the agenda behind Washington’s support of terrorism?

    Perhaps the purpose of the wars is to radicalize Muslims and, thereby, destabilize Russia and even China. Russia has large populations of Muslims and is bordered by Muslim countries. Even China has some Muslim population. As radicalization spreads strife into the only two countries capable of being an obstacle to Washington’s world hegemony, Western media propaganda and the large number of US financed NGOs, posing as “human rights” organizations, can be counted on by Washington to demonize the Russian and Chinese governments for harsh measures against “rebels.”

Western aggression is already forcing both countries to develop their strategic nuclear forces and to curtail the Western-financed NGOs that pose as “human rights organizations,” but in reality comprise a fifth column that Washington can use to destroy the legitimacy of the Russian and Chinese governments.

    The Ch!nese just crush dissent: See what happens to the Uighurs.

    Russ!a does likewise with the Ch3chens. (Who incidentally were responsible for the Boston bombings earlier this year)

    If anything this current strategy will shift public opinion in western countries very much against the established !slamic populations. The backlash in the UK will be much greater than that seen after Woolwich, and the government could be forced by public opinion to seriously impact the basic human rights of muzzies in the UK.

    It may be in part to try and destabilize internally and provide valuable propaganda, but when the target of that propaganda (us) do not give a shit, and perhaps also want to see the muzzies out domestically, then it all falls apart.

    This is more about oil and gas into Turkey and supply for Europe bypassing Russ!a. Which is not going to work either as Russ!a will likely establish a base in Greece and look like they are going to be controlling the East Med for the foreseeable future.

    There is also the small matter of thinning down inventory of materiel which is coming towards the end of its service life, and the US desire for credible competition from European defense contractors to allow the US government some leverage to force US contractors to reduce their prices.

    One plus point is establishment of land for Kurdistan. This would extend into Northern Syr!a which Assad seems to be Ok with at present. Not too much mention of this in the Western press.

    The US, UK, and French governments have not explained why it matters whether people in the wars initiated by the West are killed by explosives made of depleted uranium or with chemical agents or any other weapon. It was obvious from the beginning that Obama was setting up the Syrian government for attack. Obama demonized chemical weapons–but not nuclear “bunker busters” that the US might use on Iran. Then Obama drew a red line, saying that the use of chemical weapons by the Syrians was such a great crime that the West would be obliged to attack Syria. Washington’s UK puppets, William Hague and Cameron, have just repeated this nonsensical claim. The final step in the frame-up was to orchestrate a chemical incident and blame the Syrian government.

    To be afraid of Syr!an nerve agents in the US makes no sense.

    Syr!a cannot project these weapons over that distance: They would be lucky to range Cyprus.

    Sar!n is relatively easy to make if you want to, and easy to do in the US where the pre-cursors are relatively easy to come by.

    The flaw to this argument of course is that the US has the largest stockpiles of chemical munitions, yet is somehow more capable of protecting these. This is a very curious assertion.

    Following fast and furious, where weapons sold by ATF to Mex!can drug cartels (an O’Bama approved policy) found their way back on to the US street and were used in numerous killings of US citizens, this assertion becomes weaker.

    Time to try again on this one.

  550. 550
    Point of Information 4 says:

    They cannot get UN approval as the UN would not support. Mainly because the claims are b/s.

    It is not illegal to use chemical munitions when a formal state of war has not been declared, as is the case.

    If such weapons have been used this is more likely to be by the insurgents than the Syr!an government. This is an internal matter for the Syr!an government to deal with and if they require assistance from others they are free to request through regular diplomatic channels / the UN.

    Ah, the cast iron evidence says:

    Over the weekend, reports emerged suggesting that Israeli intelligence has definitive proof that the chemical attacks last week were carried out by the Syrian army.

    According to the German publication Focus, the Israel Defense Forces Unit 8200, the IDF’s signals intelligence unit, intercepted communications of the Syrian army during the attack.

    “A former Mossad officer told FOCUS the analysis has clearly shown that the bombardment with poison gas missiles was made by Syrian government forces,” reports the publication.

    Military hawk Professor John Schindler of the U.S. Naval War College tweeted about the story Sunday, adding that Israel swiftly shared the information with the US and other allies.

    Carswell says:

    Back in February 2006, as the Leader of the Opposition, David Cameron specifically said that there should be curbs on a Prime Minister’s power to go to war. In order to help restore trust in politics, the BBC reported at the time, Mr Cameron wanted to ensure that “MPs, rather than the prime minister, had the final say over whether troops were committed to military action”.

    Dear Lord Rothschild.

    I have pleasure in conveying to you, on behalf of His Majesty’s Government, the following declaration of sympathy with J[ wish] Zi[ ist] aspirations which has been submitted to, and approved by, the Cabinet

    “His Majesty’s Government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the J [ wish] people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-J[ wish] communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by J [ ews] in any other country”

    I should be grateful if you would bring this declaration to the knowledge of the Z [ ist] Federation.

    Yours Arthur James Balfour.”

    Syr!a could be about gas: !ranian Gas - South Pars says:

    Totally off the beaten track, but an interesting news article:

    Large Helium reserves have been found in !ran’s south pars field.

    Given the strategic importance of Helium in missile technology, this could partly why a sprint towards Tehran is being made. The US reserves are likely a lot lower than has been admitted.

    Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin says:

    My recollection was that the US sold off their helium stocks a while back.
    A little digging reveals that there have been rumblings about a helium shortage for a number of years now, and yet it would seem that the US did indeed flog off its stocks.
    Here’s a report from last year :

    Time to get serious and forget any idea of helium-filled party balloons.

    The true cost of new labour says:

    The fact that Blair and Labour took this country to war on a lie which led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands, has not only poisoned the well for future conflicts it has also built in scepticism regarding genuine situations where none previously existed.

    Labour did more long term damage to this country that we can ever begin to comprehend. Whenever you stand at a ballot box and should you find your hand clutching that stubby pencil hovering over the Labour tick box ….stop and remember.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
