Millibean will be very restricted in what he can do over 3 years other than reveal what an utter shambles he is. Labour will lose any GE over 2018-20 to a real conservative party.

      Clegg is up to no good. says:

      Nick Clegg is insulting the people who serve in our armed services, whether deliberate or through ignorance I know not.

      Yes some ex servicemen and women have left to teach in schools but to say they are unqualified to teach is an insult.

      They do not carry the teaching unions’ cards and have not undergone state teaching courses (which are really for wet behind the ears students) but they are fully qualified teachers holding the relevant service teaching qualifications. Has it not occurred to Clegg that ships and submarines full of engineers educated to the very highest standards have not been taught, or pilots or commandoes or every serving person? Unfortunately most MOD quals are not recognised in civvy street but many are transferrable and teaching should be one of them.

      Having experience of both worlds, I know parents/children have nothing to fear and all to gain. Clegg is playing politics.

      He’s also saying top mathematicians or physicists should not be allowed to give some of their time to teaching in our schools which again is politically motivated nonsense.

        Have you ever read the book or heard the radio play “Last Night Another Soldier” by Andy McNab? In one scene the main character, an 18 year old Rifleman, is asked how he is getting on with his coursework. The lad has been so let down by the education system that the army is having to teach him to read and write whilst he is in a war zone.

        McNab was himself functionally illiterate until he was taught to read and write by the Army. Having seen McNab speak at Bovington a few months ago it is obvious that the thing that he is most passionate about is literacy. Considering Cleggs views it does seem ironic that the unqualified teachers in the Army seem to succeed after twelve years of failure by the qualified ones.

            I supposed the difference is that with Army education, if you play silly buggers in class you get shouted at and have to carry a highly polished 30lb shell with you everywhere at double time for a week, and heaven help you if you scratch it. If you play silly buggers in class at school the teachers can do bugger all, apart from a temporary “exclusion” or as the kids know it, an extra two weeks holiday.

            Now who was it that decided that removing discipline in classrooms was a good idea? Bet it had a lot to do with the so called professionals, including teachers, ru(i)ning our education system.

      Mike Ashley Fitness DVD Is A Commercial Disaster

      Planet sized owner Mike Ashley has revealed his shock at the failure of his fitness DVD.

      The fitness market, which is dominated by drug addled fuck nuts like Kerry Katona, is more volatile and unpredictable than the weight of the star jumping morons who peddle it.

      Asked what he thought of the fan lead protest group which want him to sell the club, Ashley responded: “What do you think is more important to your average Newcastle fan right now?
      “I think most of them enjoy the circus I’ve created. What other club boasts a director of football who has never learned to use a telephone.

      “The other day me, and Joe took a shower together in front of the first team squad. It was our way of bonding and raising morale And, do you know what, it worked. Because every single one of them ran the fuck out of there, onto the training ground.

        It's called extortion says:

        “The German power company RWE hopes to spend £4 billion on its “Atlantic Array”, covering 125 square miles of sea between Devon and South Wales with 240 vast 5MW turbines, more than 600ft high. Owing to the wind’s intermittency, these will generate, on average, just 400MW of electricity – but will earn RWE £525 million a year, of which £350 million will be from subsidies we all pay through our electricity bills.

        Meanwhile, dominating the views from Dorset’s Jurassic Coast, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, the £3.6 billion “Navitus Bay” scheme, proposed by the French state-owned firm EDF and a Dutch partner, will cover 76 square miles of sea with 218 5MW turbines generating an average of 350MW.

        It will be worth £450 million a year to its owners, £270 million of it in subsidies. In addition, locals are horrified to learn that to connect these turbines to the grid will involve 22 miles of cabling, in a trench up to 140ft wide across the New Forest and Dorset.

        The combined contribution of these two gigantic wind farms, at a capital cost of £7.6 billion and earning subsidies of £620 million a year, will average 750MW – less than that of the single unsubsidised gas-fired power station recently built in Plymouth at a capital cost of £1 billion.”

    Poor taxpayers – with no pensions- pay more into its pension fund than grossly overpaid staff receive in take-home pay.

    The pension entitlement is similar to other gold plated public sector pensions. Like most whitehall mandarins and cronies they pay nothing and it is tax free. But Unlike all other schemes it is funded and an actuary calculates each year how much is needed to pay out future gold-plated pensions.

    This indicates that every other public sector schemes with less than this level of subsidy will need huge bailouts in future and that taxpayers face retirement poverty.

    Telegraph says:

    Funds intended to help the world’s neediest have been spent on providing training and equipment to the police force and border guards of Belarus, an autocracy run along Soviet lines. The aid, supplied by the European Union’s EuropeAid programme, to which Britain’s Department for International Development (DfID) is a major donor, came despite violent action against the pro-democracy opposition. The Foreign Office has expressed grave concern at the imprisonment and abuse of dissidents and also at the use of the death penalty, while an EU arms embargo has been put in place. However, the EU increased aid payments to Belarus to more than £32 million last year, including millions of pounds on projects to reinforce the country’s western borders. The European Commission said the aid would curb people trafficking and drug smuggling, but dissidents claimed the equipment has been used to prevent the regime’s opponents fleeing.
    Labour said the aid to Belarus was unjustifiable and urged ministers to raise it with the commission.

          Awesome!

          “How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its
          votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in
          a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic
          apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident
          habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of
          commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the
          followers of the Prophet rule or live.

          A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and
          refinement, the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that
          in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his
          absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine,
          must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of
          Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.

          Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities, but the
          influence of the religion paralyses the social development of
          those who follow it.

          No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from
          being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing
          faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa,
          raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that
          Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the
          science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization
          of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient
          Rome.”

    Once upon a time there was a small village. Ancient, stone built and older than all records.

    In that village was a house. A very small house, one room wide, but three levels, and no separate hallways.

    That house, today, by the stupidity of this government, has to comply with the same separated fire escape route requirements of building regulations as all houses in the UK. The reason is for the protection of the occupants from fire. Did I say it was a stone building! Stone floors, stone roof, stone walls.

    Yet in the centre of the same village is a nice fire station. This fire station was built because of the difficulty of getting to the area due to the narrow roads. In the winter there is just one road that is maintained open.

    That fire station is to be shut down. Why? Because there are no house fires in the area, and it is redundant. Did I say they were ancient and stone built (I mean before government made any house regulations) They argue it is a cost that is not necessary and waiting over 30 minutes for the engine from the next town is OK. If the area has no house fire why would anyone need rescuing.

    Does anyone notice a problem with this government?

    Prescriptive, nanny state, bureaucracy is standing in the way of everything we do, just for the profit of the chosen few. Those licensed to approve peoples house interiors.

    In 2011 there were 287 deaths from fires. That includes all causes i.e deliberate. The highest cause of fatality was fires started in a living or dining room! Think smoking and non fire resistant furniture. Why do we even bother with these stupid requirements for wall coverings. The Secretary of state has the power tomorrow to relax all these conditions for every private dwelling not used commercially for vulnerable people.

    This would certainly help the building trade. The story also illustrated why politicians are out of control. It would take a real person to make these decisions.

    BROKEN BRITISH POLITICS-CLASS SYSTEM SLOWLY REINTRODUCED
    The Class system has always been there but hidden from view.The Draconian measures employed by this Government through the excuse of Austeriy is to demean anyone receiving any kind of Welfare Benefit including Tax Credit and Pensions.The Bedroom Tax has proved a costly exercise but has reached its objective of having put more people dependent on the State and disrupted any stabilization of a settled home life .
    We heard about Ethnic Cleansing in places like Bosnia,but under the guise of saving money and the introduction of the Bedroom Tax whole families have been uprooted from London and been forced to move as far afield as the Midlands .Could this be associated with Class reallocation.
    The changes that have happed over the last few years steadily and steathily makes one wonder whether we are reintroducing the Class System especially when Third Class Rail will be introduced.
    It was last seen in Britain in 1956. While the Government insisted that the proposals were intended to pave the way for a class equivalent to premium economy on aircraft “it points to a Ryanair model with passengers rammed in to creaking cattle trucks with a surcharge for everything from your bags to using the lavatories,” said Bob Crow, leader of the RMT Transport Union.

      12 1. “Schools places shortage”: is it just possible that this is due rather, to a (‘cough’) previous Administration’s not so much allowing, as encouraging, unrestricted immigration – and squirting huge amounts of money in re-vamping existing schools and increasing pay?
      2. In what way do free schools ‘misuse’ freedoms? Freedom is freedom -which must include the freedom to fail, as well as the freedom to succeed. Parents who have not the benefit of a B.Ed., will readily be able to detect if a free school is not teaching their child/ren well/well-enough/at all. They will be able to make their complaints plain – if need be, by removing their offspring. A wise man said, ‘abusus non tollet usus.’ – which can be cumbrously translated as, ‘the fact that something can be abused, does not negate its use.’
      3. .. see 1, above: has Michael Gove been going round the Country closing Teacher Training Colleges right, left, and centre? You could argue that, a ‘Teacher training shortage’ means more applicants (therefore, ability to pick the best), and indicates a collective sigh of relief – ‘At last! We stand a chance of actually being able to Teach!’ On the other hand, your ‘shortage’ could mean a shortage of people applying to train. This might represent a welcome sign that intelligent people are no longer willing to subject themselves to two or three years of mind-numbing futility, where how you ensure that groups are formed and re-formed, where the fiction is maintained above all that children really know all, and have just to be encouraged to discover it, where the Teacher is the apparently passive facilitator/encourager, by no means an Authority-figure, are far more important than what, indeed whether anything, is taught, and, above all, learning must not be seen to be an arduous business. When I was considering Education, I asked one of my Tutors for his advice: ‘The Oxford Certificate in Education has been described as two-parts balls, one part experience': why not go straight in to the experience? Years later, I went on a ‘TTA’ course where, among the ‘presentations’ was one where key-words were written on pieces of paper, subsequently all joined into rings (words inside), the rings made into a paper-chain, hung from the ceiling, and then pulled, revealing the words… it didn’t go quite according to plan. A year or two later, I endured a few weeks at an apparently ‘prestigious’ Education Department jamboree… I think I gave up the will to continue, if not to live, when we were told to/ ‘tasked’ with buying and using Teen Magazines… When one of the ‘Tutors’ came to observe one of my lessons, his one gripe was that I had not signalled to the Class that one of them was to be asked to load and switch on the Video. The Class in question, afterwards found it hilarious that this was single complaint! Socialist they might have been, but they demanded- and got- their money ‘up-front’ from a small private school.

      This becomes relevant when it is realized that Guangdong Nuclear Corporation and H!tachi are currently involved in construction of new UK nuclear power stations, with no UK involvement.

      Perhaps SSE and Centrica bowed out as they realized that they would be liable for any ‘accidents’ that may occur as a result of future compromise of those facilities. Most of the technology (such as that controlling the cooling systems) would have be sourced from As!a, not the UK, so would be vulnerable.

      By allowing foreign nuclear firms to build own and operate perhaps this actually buys the UK security. Ed Miliband’s criticism of these firms perhaps reflects his and Labour’s desire to weaken UK security.

      NB: Gordon Brown and Yvette Co0per have significant familial interests in UK nuclear. The UK was one country which contributed reports erroneously indicating no link between nuclear power plants and childhood cancer rates.

            The lack of recourse to what we would consider a ‘normative standard’ can only be explained by a half baked attempt to adjust to a harmonized EU standard. That is another aspect of what is mentioned in the PJ retort over the new e-fit procedure.

            My suspicion is that much of the UK Justice system has already been integrated and what is happening now is the top layer which has so far remained undisturbed is being reshaped.

            Similar issues led to Hunt having to extend the scope of NHS hospitals affected by S’avile. The implication being that staff, management and possibly investigators conspired to cover up details in reports that his department had ordered.

            Which takes us back fully to your point.

            On a tangent though, could what we are seeing just be business as usual, ie. is normative, however with information being available in greater quantity and without temporal delay, our perception is changed so we can see through it ?

            Early imagery is very good for this and I have numerous memories which go back to when I was 18 months old and before.

            I can tell this for sure because we moved house at that time and never went back. I described my memories to my parents at different times and got confirmation that it accorded with theirs. Descriptions of our flat, the views, the furniture, the walk into town whilst I was wheeled in my pushchair (still much bomb damage and corrugated iron put up to keep people out of damaged property.)

            Of course, there is the issue of whether you remember the original image or just your memory of it. We can leave that to one side for now.

            It fed through into my education as maths and physics were taken in at one telling, it was so obvious. History, geography and chemistry was much more difficult, all being heavily fact based.

            The I made myself study philosophy which was all written. Even here, images can play a dramatic part; Plato’s cave for example, but you can only get so far when dealing in concepts.

            Imagery in writing is a wonderful thing and I love it when someone can paint a surreal image with words, as one feels part of the creation. It can also instigate new thought. One imagines something utterly fantastic, then you realise it may just be possible. With luck you actually end up doing something you knew for sure was impossible.

    Have politically motivated internet groups trumped the apolitical ?

    h**p://cryptome.org/2013/09/cpunks-crypto.htm

    S’nowden essentially confirmed what many politicized comsec commentators have suggested for some time, that the ‘security’ mechanisms added onto the internet have been a deception offering no real security.

    Those with vested interests, who work within the field of cryptography have been very resistant to the notion, and perhaps unwittingly with security agencies have helped discredit critics using tin-foil hat rhetoric etc.

    However, what S’nowden confirmed is that other than mass surveillance, including compromise within foreign borders by NSA agencies, the whole gamut of HTTPS / SSL / PGP / Tor etc. are in fact redundant. Moreover, foreign manufactured telecommunications equipment is firmly back under the microscope, confidence in comsec flaws being clearly a factor in the demise of RIM.

    The demise of RIM was a slow motion death though, as they demonstrably compromised comsec on their platform by capitulating to the wishes of certain foreign governments some years back:

    h**p://www.thestar.com/business/2010/08/10/rim_reaches_deal_with_saudi_arabia.html

    This will have the effect of balkanizing the internet as there is now a clear security and economic incentive for governments to ‘secure’ portions of the internet which are under their control, and could force some major changes relating to international agreements on certain aspects of ITU, particularly in the area of protocol implementation and cryptography.

    Perhaps the internet now should be regarded as a fully politicized environment, and in such an environment, is it wise for government to remain fully transparent, or attempt to become a dominant force ?

      The Law of Unintended Consequences strikes yet again. Who would have thunk it?

        An example of the law of unintended consequences was portrayed by the S’tuxnet worm. Or was it ?

        That virus was intended to cripple !ranian centrifuges. It did cause some to break down, but in doing so, spurred the regime to increase its efforts and develop better replacement technology. Result: The attack put them forward.

        But was that an unintended consequence or a desired outcome ?

        The internet was originally anarchic by its open nature. However, it is self organizing, allowing order to evolve. Balkanization will retrograde that evolution, and politicization would serve to introduce what statists would consider to be a real ‘order’.

        The original internet as sold in the 90s could be regarded as a libertarian construct. The S’nowden revelations (in fairness due to come out at any point) perhaps reflect a more calculated attempt to replace the libertarian construction with something more authoritarian.

        So is this a planned development rather than unintended ?

        One thing is clear which is that the apparent credible confirmation will have a retrograde effect on non-US allies as they will be forced to replace their comsec hardware, and software, in order to maintain security.

        On the other hand, why after the successful Ch!nese compromise of E’ADS / B’AE and other Western corporate entities was this not addressed.

        Similar to !ran / S’tuxnet it must have been to allow them to accelerate their development at our apparent expense, that expense being to maintain a stationary position. (See virtual zero economic growth over past 6 years US / EU)

        Closing down the open structure after the horse has bolted so to speak, particularly when there was no apparent reflexive gain, is odd.

        Doing it at your own expense (we were wrong so you will close) avoids conflict, but when there is much to gain by surveillance moving forward why apparently close it down now ? :-)

            I do not think cock up completely.

            Look at UK for example, and compare what is now happening in US.

            UK provided easy state benefits, demotivates people from advancing. Leads to high unemployment, little economic growth / industrial development.

            Now, take poverty as violence as a model.

            Cut benefits, ie. attack people economically by forcing them into real not perceived poverty, that violence will stimulate them to go back into work. Eventually you will get growth and industrial development again.

            Attacking definitely does help stimulate your enemy, but the broader strategy appears to have been to deliberately allow As!a to catch up.

            What is not clear are the benefits of such a move from the European perspective.

            From US this does make much sense as they can now keep Europe as a backwater, whilst working against and with more credible competition with As!a.

            Some of the failed merger and integration deals which the EU has failed to deliver on, particularly in the defense sector, perhaps have sealed Europe’s fate for now.

            From this point of view the case for the UK staying within the EU is exceptionally weak at present.

          How to reduce energy bills says:

          Cameron needs to table legislation to remove the “green levy” and “green taxes” on energy bills as a “temporary measure” for next 20 months leading up to the election with promise to permanently remove them if he wins a majority. He can then tell the LibDems(Clegg) and Labour(Miliband)that in view of their concerns over consumers paying high energy bills he will expect them to vote in favour of the legislation and that if they oppose it he will allow the electorate to draw their own conclusion. The pressure then moves on to Labour especially to either vote down the legislation(with LibDem support)or support Cameron and vote down any attempts by LibDems to stop Cameron doing this.

          If Clegg can mouth off about Tory education policy then Cameron ought to go for the jugular and do away with the LibDem “Scared Cow” of Green taxes.

      Operation Ore was a good idea for a honey trap, and gathered lots of information, but it also made apparent (quite embarrassingly) the level of credit card fraud which actually happens.

      As a result the information collected had to be shelved as there was no way for sure of ensuring that the names of the list were not false positives.

      The government at the time could not admit that being the reason for failure for two reasons: i) Credit cards totally insecure at that time on the internet, ii) That advanced cybercr!me strategies like this are useless.

Probably you would have experienced quite a limited diet of adequate but not inspiring food. If so that will not have changed much and quality is only found in exceptional circumstances.

Increasingly a small stream of Brits.

They have not cottoned on to the idea of the shabby millionaire, someone who doesn’t look as if he has two coins to rub together and so does not get hassled or robbed. The impressive thing for me about Josep Broz was his ability to interface with so many different types of people and maybe this was the key to the way in which he held Yugoslavia together and why it died under the pressures of the collapse of a different brand of communism, not that long after he passed away. He could even recite The Owl and the Pussycat. No pussycat, he. After your recommendation, I will get Eastern Approaches, it has been on my list for long enough.

        Resistance is futile. What’ya gonna do? Vote UKIP? Mwa ha ha ha ha!

      Why why why go for expensive solutions? says:

      It could all be solved in months at very little cost by building a few oil and gas stations around the country. It’s a dead easy cheap simple solution but they won’t do it because they are wedded to this expensive low Carbon religion.

      What sort of reactor is it? I bet it’s not a PWR that can cope with varying loads.
