Indy’s Almost Perfect Relaunch

Indy editor Amol Rajan will have come down from last night’s celebrations by now, his stylish redesign of the paper has been well-received almost universally this morning. With all eyes on the new look, the subs forgot to take out an unfortunate comment at the end of this sport piece:

Harsh words.

      The article about the Indy saying it’s own articles are boring is strangely more interesting than the original article.

      A comment left on the more interesting article about the boring article could be either more or less interesting.

      All of this makes more sense than Owen Jones’ op Ed pieces.

    The conduct of two Sussex detectives who handled a sex assault allegation against Jimmy Savile is to be investigated by the police watchdog.

    The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) said it had directed Sussex Police to record and refer the officers’ conduct to the watchdog.

    The officers investigated an alleged sexual offence by Savile after a woman contacted the force in March 2008.

    It is part of an IPCC review of material from a number of forces.

      The European Central Bank cut its benchmark interest rate to a record low after a drop in inflation to the slowest pace in four years threatened its mission to keep prices stable.
      Policy makers meeting in Frankfurt today reduced the main refinancing rate by a quarter point to 0.25 percent. The decision was predicted by Guido Fawkes.

          This is an inflationary move which may fail.

          Not very friendly to London either.

          It will likely fail to stimulate the Eurozone as banks are unlikely to lend to businesses (as happened in the UK) due to the fact that the underlying economies are still broken.

          This should help recapitalize some of the banks which are perhaps expected to fail the upcoming stress tests (indicates Eurozone banking sector is in a worst state than advertised) but whilst wage deflation continues and jobs are not created, deflationary conditions will persist.

          The deflation is caused by money being transferred out of the real economy by restrictive bank lending practices, which is why the inflationary moves of the central banks are not being felt in the real economy, but only in areas where lending is ‘normal’ such as real estate.

          If the Euro does not go down, the ECB move can be considered a failure and one should perhaps prepare for 10% bail in and further capital controls.

            The deflation is caused by writing off debt and not replacing it with cash (i.e. refusing to resort to QE).

            Broad money = debt + cash, so if you write of debt you end up with

            Broad money = cash

            Since cash << debt + cash you will inevitably end up with deflation, and a recession turns into a depression.

            They got themselves into this positon because they studied the German mistake of replacing debt with 1000 x debt using printed cash. This caused hyperinflation. From this they learned that printing cash to replace debt was wrong. This was the wrong lesson, however. What they should have learned is that printing lots and lots of cash to replace debt is wrong, but printing just enough cash to replace the debt is right.

            Given that the EU leadership refuses to admit its mistake and cannot be challenged through democratic processes, I expect we are about to see the danger of allowing a non-democratic executive to have complete control over EU economics. The Great Depression of 1929 led to European war in 1939, so I guess we've got another 5 years.

        Europe is heading for deflation. Prices are falling in many countries. Even more jobs are being lost. Productivity is dropping , growth is weak or non-existent. They are all facing what euro-sceptics have been predicting for years. And they are still in denial.

          The one thing that we learned from the Great Depression is that under no circumstances should you respond to a recession by tightening money supply. Except in the EU apparently.

    What’s all this about Chucky and Balls night out at a posh restaurant and an £800 bottle of wine.

    Brillo spilled the beans a few moments ago. Apparently the wine was from businessmen (in exchange for what?)

    Also, what were those two doing out together? More Bilash type restaurant plotting? It would of course be out of sight of prying eyes….not much trash around at £800 per bottle

    This is the end of a swathe of dummy text used to fill gaps on blank pages before the actual copy arrives … here it is in full … glorious eh? It is much-loved among Associated hacks and ois still used by Standard subs (who now also sub the Indie of course).

    Setting fire to a naval dockyard, treason, and high treason, were the last three capital offences on the statute book.

    These were abolished by New Labour in the 1990’s. In retrospect, we can all see why.
