          Joe Public says:

          Interesting the BBC in an interview with a Republican quoted a US poll showing 3 in 4 Americans blamed the GOP for the trouble, and he did not dispute it whereas a poll I saw stated that 2 in 3 Americans blamed the Democrats. BBC BIAS? What bias.
          So now Guido is joining Ed Miliband in climbing on the nearest convienent bandwagon. I also despair as it appears 1984 is here again.


          • Llareggub says:

            I really have no sympathy for Democrats at all, but my impression from American friends (of which I have quite a number — my wife is American) is that the feeling is overtly to blame the Republicans, even is such staunchly red states as Idaho and Utah.

            Mind you, I liked the Facebook comment of one of my wife’s close friends:

            ” I didn’t realize how many of my Facebook friends were experts on the many goings-on in Congress, and how black and white the decisions should have been. I remember when I was much, much younger and I knew the answer to everything, but those days are gone. Makes me wonder if some of us have ever had to make a heartbreakingly difficult choice between two options, neither one something we would prefer, but compelled to do something for the good of the country. I don’t know, . . . maybe we should govern the country from Facebook.”

        Is it cos he is black? says:

        Such a pinko muslim communist, that’s why his administration gives $3b a year in aid to Is*ael, sends drones to kill taliban in P*kistan, killed Bin Laden, and hasn’t banned capitalism or turned the white house into a mosque as many righties said he would.

        Don’t be a fucktard all your life.

          • Wingnuts indeed says:

            Your appalling spelling and grammar aside, you’ve heard of many muslims who support gay marriage, stem cell research and funding of pro-choice policies have you? Taliban well known for advocating gay marriage, providing contraception and abortion? Wonders never cease. And please provide me with details of how the muslim Obama has banned alcohol, pork, christianity, private enterprise, guns, TV and all the other things you loons said he would ban. It’s been 4 and a half years since he came to office. Any day now, right? And while you’re at it, you may want to consider the irony that many of the beliefs you and your pals hold regarding loathing gays and being anti-abortion and anti-atheism aligns you firmly with fundamentalist muslims.


          • Lefties live in La La Land no wonder they fuck up government says:

            So muslims are peaceful and their men marry each other and trip peacefully through the poppy fields in love with each other and the world.

            You Wingnut are one sick person. There is a civil war going on in Syria and the last thing the men are doing is marrying each other.


          • Yeah, right.... says:

            Anyone want £100 that the number of muslims killed by ‘anti-muslim’ western forces is dwarfed by the number killed by other muslims, whether sunni on shia or vice versa?

    A strange but definitely perceptible change has come over twitter and some Conservative blogs in the past weeks, and it’s that finally, slowly, people are beginning to realise that the America-hating retard wing of the GOP (Tea Party etc) are actually responsible for the state of the USA right now. And a lot of “decent” Republicans are starting to speak openly about their embarrassment at the small but extremely damaging minority of fuckwits and lunatics in their party that have directly caused this.

The Tea party opposes the US debt extension to, wait for it, 17 trillion dollars. The Tea Party would let the too big to fail banks, well, fail. And would not bail out GM to move American jobs to Mexico. So tell me, retard, who is stupid?

            Well said. Of course, the public can’t support parties with rational ideas, no, it must support pro immigration, pro multiculturalism, pro gay, pro mysandry and all the other ‘isms out there.

            Why can’t the Republicans who are happy with the Bill join forces with the rest of the Democrats who are also happy with the Bill – thus producing a healthy majority of “representatives” who seem to be in favour of digging America’s hole just a few metres/yards/chains/furlongs deeper?

          UKIP2020 says:

          Last time I checked, it was Obama in the Whitehouse and America is run by a congress who have consistently done the opposite of what the tea party wants. Consistently grown government to levels of complete unaffordability. They have repeately hit the debt ceiling and are still increasing spending further. It is the equivalent of thinking the way to deal with a maxed out credit card, is to leave it maxed out and continue spending on another credit card.

          The Tea Party simply want smaller, less intrusive, less expensive government which lives within its means. Since when has that been a lunatic idea?

          Since the lunatics and deranged, mathematically challenged fuckwits of the left, the corrupt corporatists, rent seekers, and tax junkies have no comprehension of the word, unnafordable have been in charge I suppose.

          It is constant spending beyond their means, year after year, under the corporatist GOP and corporatist Democrats, which has lead to America grinding to an inept and incompetent halt, for the second time in less than 20 years, under the weight of it’s own unsustainable debt. Both times under the retarded leadership of a Democrat President.

          Yet somehow, due to the overwhelmingly left wing corporatist bias of the media, it is the fault of the Tea Partiers… which have no real power at all as yet.

          Typical of the left though. Fuck everything up and then blame someone else. Which is why after 13 disastrous years of labour incompetence, waste and corruption, the left STILL blame Thatcher for Gordon Brown’s massive recession.

          It is corrupt left wing corporatism which is to blame for America’s decline and BOTH parties are responsible for it.

    The lesson being borrow, borrow and borrow to the hilt.

    Spend it all on bribes to voters. When you run out of money, borrow more to pay the repayments.

        That unfortunately is going to leave you behind by a few centuries but you can always wind someone else up in such circumstances and then probably enjoy being warmed up in the cooking pot for your troubles.

        And another thing. Who held a gun to peoples’ heads and told them to have debt? Many more now need debt because governments overtax them to pay for projects they should have never entered into. You won’t see that as you are blindsided by it.

      American Statement says:


      This week, we lost a great friend – Ben Bernanke.

      As our research team describe this month… no other Federal Reserve chairman in history did so much to improve the fortunes of the wealthy.

      Bernanke dropped real interest rates well into negative territory. That allowed the world’s wealthiest capitalists access to unprecedented amounts of capital at rates of interest that literally paid them to borrow.

      Meanwhile, the people he fleeced – the workers, the savers, the few Americans left with simple industry and thrift, the kind of folks who would never have believed the government would actively try to hurt them – have been wiped out. They’ve seen the real value of their wages, savings, and standard of living decline by huge amounts.

      We know what to expect from Bernanke’s likely successor, Janet Yellen.
      The central bank’s policies will continue to support and promote the incredible profligacy of our country’s government. These policies will, in the end, cause unbelievable harm to millions of Americans. They will devastate the average standard of living in our country and leave a great many people in abject poverty.

      On this issue, we make two recommendations. Both companies’ outlook is heavily influenced by the Federal Reserve’s ongoing policies. To safeguard wealth (and continue to grow it), it will be important to own the kind of assets most likely to appreciate in this kind of inflation. So you won’t be surprised to see us buying still more energy assets and… for the first time in a long time… private homes.

    The republicans are basically trying to defend the defence budget and the low tax economy, which will get squeezed by increased healthcare spending in the long run. US will thus become less powerful.
    They are also trying to stop their country becoming a basketcase.

    The Republicans are right in the long run of course, but it is difficult to stop someone like Obama when he doesn’t really care so much. In a democracy, those who don’t give a f**k about their country have the advantage. This is a classic example. Obama would have let the US burn to keep heathcare reforms.

        But the health care that America had pre Obamacare was the most expensive in the world, with corporate insurance companies making a fortune from it leaving millions without adequate coverage.

        So what did Obama do?

        Create a system set up mostly by the insurance companies forcing most people to buy private care, which now costs on average 50% MORE for the same level of care, and up to 400% more. And people are THANKING him for it???

        The Americans must be really REALLY stupid to put up with that shit. The Tea Party are the only rational and sane people left in the room.

      Feelings, for all my life I’ll feel it
      I wish I’ve never met you, girl
      You’ll never come again (?)

      Feelings, for all my life I’ll feel it…♫

        So – if it’s going to be run as a monopoly, renationalise it – at least then we can cut out some of the profiteering.

      Which is what you’d expect an ultra-Leftie like David Corn to say, as he conveniently “forgets” to put the sarc tag in, hoping to “Poe’s Law”-troll the unwary.

      Which ends up being a bit like a negative times a negative produces a positive; IOW by trying to make light of the “birther” phenomenon, he’s asking anyone with less sense than God gave a goose to throw out the baby with the bath water. It is perfectly possible for Obama to have been born in America, not be a Muslim, and still mendaciously call for “normal democratic process.” But by not sarc tagging it, Corn undercuts his own point– he invites us to speculate that perhaps Obama IS subversive, irrespective of religion or birthplace. Had he done so, anyone with the political nous of a school child would have seen it as the puerile joke it was and left it at that.

      But then, he thinks, nobody else can deal as well in that level of humour like him, and he shows himself to be a Dunning Kruger Syndrome “intellectual.”

    Christopher Graham

    As a Journalist and a long time employee of the BBC (since the 1970s) he worked up until he was the Secretary to the Board of Governors of the BBC.

    Then onto the Advertising Standards Authority.

    Finally landing the Information Commissioners role.

    Now look at those achievements. How can one man be in all those roles when those organizations fell so far in standards during that time. Is he the contagion?

    His latest corruption is to purposefully abuse the phrase “Legitimate Interest” that is used in the Data Protection Act. It actually means a legal or valid right to property, money or situation. Interest can not just mean simple curiosity. A sales company would have an interest in everyone’s data to assess their potential. This would render the basis of the Data Protection Act redundant, for normal personal data. But maybe as an ex-BBC journalist curiosity is all that counts except were Savile was concerned.

    Neither can it mean a “valid concern” for the customer or the company. It is essential that any organization has a valid concern for itself, and under the duty of care they must have a valid concern for the customers. So that too would make the DPA redundant.

    The old example that the ICO used was when a customer was in debt, or a customer went missing. Now that is a Legitimate Interest that allows a third party help to be used.

    He has corrupted the Data Protection Act to the point that one of leading companies in the UK believes they have a right to sell any personal data for their own financial gain. The subject it seems has no rights, and worse the company can determine what is in their best interest. If it is done under the legitimate interest term the subject’s permission is not needed. Neither do they need to be informed that their data was traded. If you look closely at the debate on the same issue in the EU they are requiring the condition to be stricter.

    This document he wrote (Data sharing code of practice) was signed off by parliament. Exactly which MP did this? It is obviously full of the words “may” and “likely” and is written to purposefully defeat the Data Protection Act.

    How do we get rid of this person?

      Every area of consumer law has become similarly corrupted in the last fifteen years. The last regime did not have even an elementary idea how to police the legislation that already existed. So they gave up on that and simply produced more by the lorry load. Whenever I read people saying: We don’t need another law, we have already got laws to deal with that, I know that their pleas will fall upon deaf ears, as the next statute wends its inglorious way towards becoming yet another doorstop.

      Indeed and as to the little ambiguous words ‘may’, ‘likely’ – Did SC for all his years on here ever alert you lot to the trickery of them little legal words of rhetoric and jargon – now let me see ughhh no – but someone has been giving the tips about the little words of deception e.g. may, might, could, ought, should, In my view [an opinion espoused by many a wig – which means SWA at law.]

      Anyway – some people have been teaching themselves – well done.

      Did you know that you DO NOT HAVE TO BE A QUALIFIED LAWYER OR BARRISTER – to actually know the law – but that you need real balls to “go into the courts” [unlike those who rarely do S…C] and throw the deceptions back in their faces – with politeness of course and a smug smile?

    I’ve seen some dumb panels and dumb audiences on QT, but tonight’s assembly must be the most mentally challenged ever. Not a single intelligent comment or spark of insight from either side, and a chairman who is unable to usefully direct the discussions .

      You get the stupid (Moussa Koussa), the anal (trolls), the slow-witted and stolid (Blowing Whistles). A few are intelligent, amusing, thought provoking but just a few.

      The lumpish, bovine and supine win the day and they are all you get in parliament anyway.

      Comments being ‘disappeared’ without trace must also be leading to the general decline. Why bother to contribute to a topic if the censor section does not agree with your PoV and just deletes it?

    This is an interesting and old one.

    G’erry M’cCann was an advisor on the COMARE panel which determined that increased childhood cancers in areas close to nuke plants did not exist. (In direct opposition to what is observed, and also what G’ermany found).


    Could Gordon Brown’s familial EDF connection have any part, or perhaps Ed Balls’ Tony Cooper connection to the UK Nuke Lobby, in the government interest in the Mccann case ?

    What a twisted web is so weaved…

      A correction to your link (which was pointing to the wrong sub-committee) contains a rather amusing if unintended rear end. It does sum the situation up rather well:


      (link should point to Medical Practices Subcommittee rather than the Record of Members Interests.)

        Cheers for fixing.

        Another Brown connection with the M’cCanns: N’icola M’urphy.

        She was an A’ssociate D’irector of H’anover PR Company at the time – they were involved with the M’cCann family, before C’larence M’itchell (B’ell P’ottinger) took over. H’anover was set up by M’ajor’s former press secretary, C’harles L’ewington.

          I was looking at the entries for this month last year earlier and in particular that night of 29th October when Hurricane Sandy started to lash at NYC. So much of it was familiar to me that I found it unable to put down and lost a night’s sleep following the developments.

          Made reference elsewhere to the fact that South Ferry station was still not repaired.

          It was around that time that I first noticed your comments so imagined that you must have got back to UK just before. If I am right, I wonder what you think one year onwards of the situation here. Is it the mess it always was? Or are we just slowly all getting older and longer in the tooth and seeing the falling apart of society?

    He has got a good point though, I cannot recall me or anybody else voting for a Belgian President (a country noted only for chocolate and institutionalised paedophilia) how does a person with an IQ less than that of a Marmoset get to be running the affairs of 500 million people?.

    Elsie Hargreaves 5 Railway Terrace Dewsbury says:

    I have a sister who lives in America and we have a good natter on the phone at least once a week.

    Last Sunday she told me that the ceiling was coming down in America. Now I did not know what she meant by this but she said it was serious and I should get all my money out of the Bank quickly.

    So I went to the Post Office first thing on Monday morning and the nice young man with a smile on his face when he found out I wanted all my money went to the back of his office and made a phone call.

    When he came back he was not smiling and asked to see my passport and three other pieces of identity.

    Luckily I had all these things with me and then he said the most of my money I could take out in anyone day was £500.

    So I took the £500 and went back and did the same thing on Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday.

    Last night my sister phoned me and said the hole in the ceiling had been fixed and I was not to worry anymore.

    But the point is I have been at my wits end all week.

    I suspect that David Cameron did nothing to protect our financial interests against this ceiling falling in between Sunday and Thursday because I have phoned his office up and they refuse to talk to me.

      David Cameron – this is a simple, but we feel warranted, request: would you like to comment on this price hike, please ? And, as you are our PM, perhaps you could explain to us all, why and how it would be possible to justify why British Gas should be able to make close to £ 3 billion and yet invest less than any other energy company in renewables or any other new energy source for the future of OUR CHILDREN – thanks David for your understanding !?

        REALWORLDER says:

        Because the very idea of renewable energy is absolute idiotic nonsense ,there is plenty of oil, gas, and coal , the trick is to get it at the right price.
        The real problem is caused by the eco lunatics and their ‘green taxes’ , only yesterday , one of the most deluded eco lunatics of the lot our next king ‘god help us, was unable to speak to a meeting of pension fund managers without going into tree hugging mode,blathering about disastrous global warming and sustainability.
        Without the so called green levy the actual price rise is less than 2%.

          Unsubstantiated rumour has it that HMtQ has resolved to live to a ripe old age, outdoing her mum by 10 years or so, just to make sure she is not succeeded by the idiot she pupped back in the glorious 1950s.

    What pundits seem to have missed is that the House Republicans held the line in a united front, rather than bottling it as on other occasions. They may have lost this battle, but they are re-uniting after the 2012 nomination debacle. People may not like their policies, but what has that got to do with it? Providing the policies you think people will say ‘yes’ to in the latest polls is Camerborne’s style, and look where that get’s us.
