    This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle,
    This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars,
    This other Eden, demi-paradise,
    This fortress built by Nature for herself
    Against infection and the hand of war,
    This happy breed of men, this little world,
    This precious stone set in the silver sea,
    Which serves it in the office of a wall
    Or as a moat defensive to a house,
    Against the envy of less happier lands,–
    This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England.

    This land of PR tosh, this sidelined isle,
    This realm of high taxation, benefits-paradise,
    The giving away of sovereignty, to EU fools,
    Against the indigenous, with secret court rules,
    Jimmy Savile,
    This once great land now laid to waste, England.

    The downward slide has begun

    Britain is about to be flattened by a tidal wave of debt. It doesn’t matter if you vote Conservative, Liberal, Labour, UKIP – or for no party at all. The facts are the facts.

    Let’s take a look at some numbers…

    Two and a half years ago, when the Coalition government formed, we were already in a huge amount of debt. In fact, the previous government had left the country sinking under £700 billion’s worth. Source:

    The Coalition has spent the last two years desperately and very publically trying to get our finances in order. We’ve had an “austerity” budget. We’ve had tax hikes. We’ve had “the cuts”.

    But for all that, our national debt is still growing at an incredible rate.

    Despite David Cameron’s talk of “austerity”, he’s going to add an estimated £700 billion to the national debt in just five years. That’s more than Tony Blair and Gordon Brown added to the national debt in eleven years. It’s more than every British government of the past 100 years put together.

    The fact is, when you look at our finances as a whole, the Coalition isn’t cutting anything. State spending is going up… our national debt is going up… and our interest payments are going up.

    By the next general election in 2015, our national debt is estimated to stand at almost £1.4 trillion

    It’s clear: our public finances are in an enormous mess. Anyone can see that. And to some extent, some politicians will admit it. But add in our financial, personal and private debts… and an even darker picture emerges…

    Compared to the size of our economy, Britain is now one of the most heavily indebted countries in the Western world. That’s official. Our total debts stand at more than FIVE TIMES what our entire economy is worth.

    Proportionally, that’s more debt than Italy… Portugal… Spain… and almost twice as much debt as Greece. Those are four countries already in the throes of financial crisis. We’re the odd one out because we haven’t collapsed – yet. But things can’t stay that way for long.

    You see, the only countries that have more debt than us are Japan, where the economy has stagnated for 20 years and the stock market has crashed by 75%… and Ireland, where the housing market has crashed 50%, and the government has been forced to accept a bailout.

    In fact, our debts tower above almost every other nation’sThat’s absolutely incredible, isn’t it? Yet you’ve probably never seen this fact reported in The Telegraph or on Sky News.

    Telegraph do appear to be having some sort of nervous breakdown at present.

    This sort of thing is just a bit fishy:

    Wrong also on its partisan point.

    UKIP will likely be picking up support on all this, and generally do not hate modern Britain, but are concerned about a number of the bad policies which are doing Britain harm.

    Point of Information 5 says:

    Still no mention of what ‘evidence’ clearly points to the regime. UK is listed on that declaration.

    Missing G20 nations on the list are:

    !ndia, Russ!a, South Afr!ca, Argent!na, Braz!l, Mex!co, G’ermany, Ch!na, !ndonesia, EU

    Spa!n has been included even though they are not in the G20, so perhaps are representing the EU in spirit ?

    Russ!a have stated that they will come to Syr!a’s aid in the event of a foreign assault and are moving a landing force into the region.

  58. 58
    Point of Information 5 says:

    The change in Fed policy which is seeing end to easy money in large chunk of the international markets is going to likely cripple UK somewhat.

    This is already beginning to claim victims among third world nations, and has led to the delay of government sell off of its share of Lloyds.

    Would perhaps crash the amount expected to be raised from any other planned privatizations as well. eg. NHS / Post Office / BBC.

    Blue Peter Goldfish says:

    They have given us into the hand of new unhappy lords,
    Lords without anger or honour, who dare not carry their swords.
    They fight by shuffling papers; they have bright dead alien eyes;
    They look at our labour and laughter as a tired man looks at flies.
    And the load of their loveless pity is worse than the ancient wrongs,
    Their doors are shut in the evening; and they know no songs.

    We hear men speaking for us of new laws strong and sweet,
    Yet is there no man speaketh as we speak in the street?.
    It may be we shall rise the last as Frenchmen rose the first,
    Our wrath come after Russia’s wrath and our wrath be the worst.
    It may be we are meant to mark with our riot and our rest
    God’s scorn for all men governing. It may be beer is best.
    But we are the people of England; and we have not spoken yet.
    Smile at us, pay us, pass us.
    But do not quite forget.

    The Barbary Pirates. Other than defending us from the Spanish, French and Dutch, the Royal Navy was being sent to North Africa on missions as early as the 1620s to free English slaves. The words of Rule Britannia were meant to be taken literally at the time it was written.

    Casual Observer says:

    I think you may be a little off the mark with some of your analysis, but you are fundamentally right about pathological dishonesty: That is the Marxist revisionism showing in the guy.

    i) Fascism is quite different to socialist collectivism. The only truly fascist government to have existed was Mussol!ni’s !taly: It features an authoritarian government on a blend of statism and corporatism. This blend is prominent in the political economy of the system, which really is the true defining quality of a fascist system of government.

    ii) 100% Correct: Private-Public Partnerships are a pure fascist construct. See the political economy.

    iii) Anything connected with NSDAP is National Socialist: This is slightly different.

    iv) The political economy of NSDAP was mainly militarist. It is usually corrupted to be fascist but was not. A key difference is that despite the state being primary customer for corporate production, the state did not have a key ownership stake in those companies.

    This for example is why it would be wrong to label the US military industrial complex as a fascist system.

    v) The ‘third way’ sold by progressives today is communitarianism. This is a different structure again. Different to fascism, the corruption in the political economy involves state owning a stake in corporate interests, but the corporations also take part ownership of state interests. The economic feedback is provided by the state subsidizing directly corporations with public money.

    In many ways the progressives of today have been selling a very regressive system.

    The freedom of the individual is restricted more firmly under communitarianism than either fascism or socialism.

    The socialists did repaint fascism as the bogey man post WWII as they needed to revise history to shield themselves from the excesses of Stalin and the NSDAP.

    The ‘hard proof from sources independent of the UN inspection team’ is a problem.

    What are the sources ? If not Syr!an government, then who ?

    NGO’s cannot be trusted after the Agent-15 scam they tried to pull earlier this year. They are likely referring to NGO Medecins Sans Frontiers, who quite frankly have a clear VI in this and cannot be trusted. (Note: They are being targeted now, perhaps to kill the source ?)

    Word on the street is that Congress Yes, House No may be outcome of upcoming votes, passing the buck straight back to Obama who will be forced to make a decision based on the fact that government cannot decide.

    At present, it is looking like No votes will be returned, putting Obama in a catch-22 where he will either have to back down on the red line, or subvert democracy.

    The task is getting harder with Russ!an build up.

    One thing that should be observed: With all of the extra attention etc., if the stated aim of military intervention is to prevent use of CW by Assad (not that I suggest he did in the first instance), this extra attention will be making that happen.

    Military intervention is therefore not required for that reason.

    So why are they persisting ? :-)

    Casual Observer says:

    Reflecting the libel term isolationist back to interventionist in order to shift the argument is a sound move.

    The libelous label approach with with false ‘isolationist’ charge does not stand up to critical analysis though:

    i) It relies on an assumption that being a collectivist (diametric opposite) is the norm. (Socialism is good in the US ?!?)

    ii) It is an absurdity:

    So we apriori assume that collectivist is good in order to make pejorative isolationist stick. But in the process of labeling we isolate the target, hence are advocating the opposite of what we feel is good.

    Once labeled, the targets side of the debate is prejudiced, and you push the target into the isolationist position closing down the debate.

    Using this style of debate, you are really arguing for isolationism rather than collectivism.

    This is the precise same paradigm as Labour used under PC to incorrectly label anyone rac!st if they had a contrary view on certain Labour policies.

    Labour did that as they knew they could not defend those policies, as the interventionist lobby cannot defend theirs either.

    In both cases now the factual evidence is in, so their arguments are lost, and people can safely ignore the labels.

There are too many old boys clinging on to the beliefs of their whole lives – and it is sad to say that they appear not of any moral backbone to be able to recognise that their belief structures have all been tainted with duplicitous and misleading intent by those who have pulled their strings with promises of money and stardom on a worldwide ‘stage’.

    If both Put!n and O’bama have defaulted to this frame now, this explains some of the apparent gaps in the reasoning for their decision making. Gaps which appear if one assumes a higher frame of decision making.

    Perhaps Dave is not aware of this.

    Applying high diplomacy to a conflict situation between two maf!a bosses engaged in a turf war, by analogy, will not get you very far. In fact, your nuanced logic will be dismissed, and you will be sidelined.

    Sir Edward Elgar, on a tour of America, received an honorary degree at Yale University in 1905, and, as the recessional music for the occasion, which was also the commencement exercises for the University, Land Of Hope And Glory was played– and an American tradition was born, one which spread rapidly to other universities and even to schools on lower levels, of playing LoH&G as both the processional and recessional music at such events.

    Elgar himself was, of course, quite chuffed about this, since, when the music is played simply as an instrumental, without what some might consider the rather jingo pietistic-sounding lyrics, it IS an impressive piece to be played to mark an occasion of great joy coupled with hope (and perhaps glory for those participating in it), not fraught with all the imperialist baggage it might have in the UK.

    Very true, we have a whole host of factors coming together to make a perfect storm over the next 10 years. I’ve only got anecdotal evidence but it also seems to me that many of our more bright and capable 19-25 year old’s are skilling themselves for life working all over Europe basically to go where the jobs are. Mean time the low wage/no wage/can’t be arsed are knocking each other up as fair rate. Add the the fact that for all the talk of ‘restructuring the economy’ back toward manufacturing it simply can’t be done on the scale needed. The markets have moved on and the UK is locked out of key sectors (just look at all the imported hardware that goes into windmills!). The elite know all this but can’t bring about change because they are locked into the system. It needed a leader unlike Dave who could see beyond the focus group and the latest social trend to be able to set out bold plans to cut debt and reinvest in the real economy. We don’t have one yet in sight, who knows the next few years might give us one, let’s hop so.

    From a pure material point of view the Russians certainly inflicted the greatest losses on Germany. They did the thing that all politicians try to avoid doing in a war simply that you have to destroy the enemy’s army in detail. Which means hard and heavy fighting with the attendant loss of life. However you count the dead the people of the old USSR certainly paid the price. WWII like WWI was a coalition war and all nations did contribute and certainly when Britain and her Empire stood alone in 1940 we were the only force still standing against Hitler. Rationally we should have made peace and made the best of it but we didn’t we fought on it cost us more loss of life and the Empire. But it did enable Europe to be freed at least in part (Stalin’s terror fell on Eastern Europe). For a small island I’d say no mean feat.

    Point of fact says:

    A willing serf I see. Why not get off your knees, taxation is theft, the government did not earn your wages, you did. What right have they to steal them from you?

    The British Public says:

    Yes it is. The sad thing is that our government has been so supine. All that individuals can do in solidarity is avoid Santander, flying on BA or Iberian or buying Spanish goods, which generally means their wines, olives and dodgy meat products and any of the shonky cars and electrical wares they put together there. It feels inadequate, but what can we legally do until we have a chance to vote William Hague out of public office?

    Brainstorming Idea says:

    Ed Miliband to read patriotic speech on new video. Background music – a Justin Bieber track: “Baby, Baby, Baby”. Video to be posted on You Tube as Ed Miliband and Justin Bieber twerking. Could go viral.

    I agree. Industrial scale scrounging should be an Olympic event. Only then will Belgium, France, Portugal and Spain have a chance to shine.

    The German system gives more chance for alternative political movements to gain representation than the British one.

    It's 2013 and bloody cold says:

    Since when has Britain had an “isolationist stance”, the Syrian civil war is nothing to do with us, you may be right on it coming to a town near us, but it doesn’t mean the people of Britain won’t return the fight, only more viciously, even though the politicians have diluted the indigenous people of the country with mass immigration .

    Having been sleeping after my seven hour drive, it should be clear to most that the entry under my name at 2:36 is yet another sockpuppet.

    Shame that he cannot make an original contribution himself.

    And yes, I do have my Treaty of Rome handy. What would he have me do? Pay tax that is unlawfully raised by spendthrift states keeping him in Buckfast or similar?

    Building on that idea of Dave using One Direction.
    Justin has more followers than One Direction but Miley Cyrus will be better for Ed than Justin. She gives him a better image than Dave’s Boy Band. Miley may be persuaded to perform at the Labour conference.

    That mention of One Direction will make the video go viral on the Internet.
    But I doubt that was the intention. He is a probably just a big fan of Boy Bands.

    This video vignette of yours was fine –faultless even — until the last shot when you attempt a smile.

    Never smile Dave — that limp wristed lip contortion takes away all vestige of seriousness from you , shows you have an underdeveloped almost childlike sense of humour and that you have never in your lifs succeeded in delivering a good joke — apart from the one about Nick Clegg being one .

    Stay serious PM — displays of alacrity are disciplines you patently have not yet mastered and frankly make you look a wanker .

    Yours ever …..

    Wilfred, thinking it may have been a bit of a fucking waste says:

    What passing-bells for these who die as cattle?
    Only the monstrous anger of the guns.
    Only the stuttering rifles’ rapid rattle
    Can patter out their hasty orisons.
    No mockeries now for them; no prayers nor bells;
    Nor any voice of mourning save the choirs, –
    The shrill, demented choirs of wailing shells;
    And bugles calling for them from sad shires.

    And all to have our lands handed over to immigrants without a drop of blood or tear shed.

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
