    Does anyone really believe that Dominic Grieve is sorry for what he said about corruption within the Pakistani community.

    The Tories need to wake up to the level of corruption within the postal voting system; they will not win any marginal seats in the East and West Midlands, the North west cotton towns and the Yorkshire textile towns.

            Psycopathy is caused by two things. The under-developement of empathy in the brain and the under-development of imagination. People who have a lot of imagination will imagine many negative consequences to their actions whereas a psycopath will not. The best medics, adventurers and sportsmen are most likely psycopaths. Very few psycopaths actively seek to hurt other people because they are indifferent to the suffering of others and gain no pleasure from it.

            The most dangerous people are empaths. They are like chameleons. They can live like Florence Nightingale or Fred West, depending on how the mood takes us. Remember you need to understand the pain you cause others in order to fully appreciate it.

One (research) is about building and testing, the other is about construction and destruction with words alone. Your behaviour here tells me that you are not professionally trained in science or engineering and that, to be fair, puts you amongst the ‘creative’ majority.

            http://bit.ly/IdAnaJ

            You appear to rely rather too heavily upon the argument: You clearly do not have a scientific background, even when the allegedly absent condition is met. Perhaps I may remind you that science proceeds from doubt and works from evidence.

            Like

          • Casual Observer 4 says:

            @JJ: I did a lot of research into Hare’s research a few years back as it was an area of interest then.

            The only reason it is held in high regard is that it apparently proves many positives in non-prison populations.

            However, PET scans of patients considered to be psychopath (there are traits in brain operation which are considered proof positive and indicative) whilst correlating with Hare, do not prove positive. There is a documentary on the matter somewhere on uTube where one of the key scientists who was presenting tested positive for psychopathic traits yet was not what you or I or even he or his acquaintances would regard as psychopathic.

            The label psychopath is somewhat divisive and a damaging one to throw around, especially with apparently cast iron proof to back up. Especially as the cast iron proof is no such thing, just a metric and set of questions / conditions which are meant as a guide to aiding diagnosis.

            In the above video you see Hare attempting to apply his psychopathic metric to corporations and their behavior.

            Last time I checked, corporations were fictional entities which exist to serve some function. They are businesses, not individuals.

            This is where Hare lets his science down and betrays his political beliefs. It is an error along the lines of the transposition of conditionals to build the argument he has here.

            That is why I called it out: From Hare’s perspective though, seeing as his original work is considered ‘done’ this shift to focus on corporates is not only political on his part, but also disingenuous as he does not seem to be able to come up with a new area to research in order to raise funding. That he got funding from the Canadian government for this false line of research plays to my second point about taking research originating from that country with a pinch of salt.

            NB: Nowhere was I trying to attack yourself directly, but debating the virtue of science rather than just accepting as absolute (unless it is something unarguable in Math or one of the Physical sciences) is dangerous.

        JFK’s assasination. New Theory

          Seemingly (although this may be complete fiction as there is no actual evidence to support the claim) there is a new unsubstantiated theory about the death of JFK.

          Although there is nothing concrete behind the claims, the circumstantial evidence is overwhelming and points to the fact that the MRF shot JFK. Yes, it all makes sense now. It is 50 years since JFK was shot; 3 members of the MRF have come forward having claimed to have conducted drive-by-shootings 40 years ago and it is the 50th anniversary of Dr Who and the TARDIS.

          It all ties together now. The Zapbruder film just fails to show the TARDIS moving across the grassy knoll with two men poking through the little windows at the top firing well aimed shots from SMGs. Lee Harvey Oswald only gets off two shots, hits with one, but the final head shot is a 9mm round from an unmarked TARDIS (with a black vinyl roof) which then disappears. Unable to explain the difference in calibre, the witness statements and the missing suspects/TARDIS the American Secret Service pin the blame squarely on Oswald and hide/destroy the evidence. The timing is perfect and I’m sure that there will be more revelations in the very near future.

        They certainly sound saner over there than we do! :-;

    How different is Miliband? Sufficiently so to encourage me to believe that he offers an honest, increasingly credible alternative approach. The people are tiring of a Tory party clinging to a financial policy that – if it is working at all and that is debatable – is stalling hideously at the expense of the shrinking workforce, the disabled and the long-term sick. The hysteria created by Lynton Crosby and the desperate Tory election-planners over the Flowers scandal conveniently ignores the fact that the Chairman of Northern Rock at the time of its 2008 collapse now sits as a Tory Peer. The ‘throw enough mud and some of it will stick’ approach is looking more and more like a desperate last gasp. Increasingly I can see no honest alternative to an increase income tax. If we want an educational system to be proud of, let us educate our young people for life not train them to pass exams and then abandon them to the vagaries of the ‘market economy’. If we want a health service that meets the needs of all patients young and old we need more qualified nurses and doctors NOT an increasing army of administrators at the expense of front-line staff. This take money and the only logical and fair way raise the sums needed is by an increase in taxation. We cannot just print money and pretend all is well when the figures scream at us that the Tory remedies do not work. Apparently I along with every other household in Britain have debts of £54,000. Well someone somewhere has borrowed my £54,000 on top of theirs. I wish them luck in trying to pay it back!

      The one problem (actually not the only one but the biggest) with your approach is illustrated by the following question: How much can you keep increasing the rate of tax before your take actually goes down?

      Even you will appreciate that that point will come well before a rate of 100% (pure confiscation.) Then there are no more options.

      Look at France, Moussa. Hollande has squeezed the rich and they have voted with their feet. His economy is in trouble and no one likes him any more.

      The other thing you do not address is how is it likely that the state will spend the money wisely. They do not as history has proved time and again. I do not expect you to pay heed to such strong and consistent evidence as your position is a dogmatic one. But If you got everything you wished for, you would end up one of the unhappiest people in the land.

          It is to do with the size of the state and the fact that it has been so far larger than it should have been, for so long now, that the size of the public debt is above what can be sustained and this will get even worse when interest rates start to rise.

          Add to that the fact that the current electoral system will probably result in few seats for UKIP and the skew in favour of Labour, with its client voters in receipt of government funds, Labour will have to do incredibly badly to lose.

      Talking about average household debt as being anything more than a useless statistic is socialist thinking in practice.

      Do a straw poll of the people on your street, and at place of work, and you would be lucky to find anyone carrying that sort of debt excluding mortgages.

      If the £54k average includes mortgages, then this figure is not too bad given where average house prices are.

      If it is not it means that there are a few people out there who are not going to be able to service their debts who are distorting the average.

      Such new reports serve to socialize private individual debt, which of course is complete bunk. As such, most people see such a figure, if they’re debt is below that carry on as before, and perhaps should be more annoyed when a government attempts to introduce policies which serve to increase their debt burden on the basis of the few bad apples who are not managing their money well.

      The tax payer bail outs of the banks are a good case in point.

          Crosby tells Tories you would lose election to-day but Labour lead is "soft" and voters unconvinced says:

          Don’t be TOO certain……as whilst things may be appearing to be on track to return Labour to government I have lived far too long to take ANYTHING for granted….there is 17 months until the GE and that is a lifetime in politics.

          It will come down to one basic thing on election day and it’s simply whether people feel that things have turned a corner and whether they can risk returning Labour to power. Miliband may be the darling of the BBC and Guardian reading sections of the electorate and the Labour core areas will vote for anybody sporting a Labour rosette but there are still large numbers of uncommitted and they tend to not decide until the campaign proper. Cameron effectively lost the 2010 campaign in the few weeks of the campaign and the tipping point was when he lost momentum in the first Prime Minsiterial debate when he faltered and allowed Clegg to “out-bullshit” him on sincerity. Millions of gullible voters fell for Clegg’s line and that was enough to deprive the Tories and Cameron of a majority. The LibDems won’t achieve that in 2015.

          If you look at UKIP…they effectively are a “one-trick pony”. It’s accepted that they will do well next year in the European elections and in fact some senior LibDems actually seriously believe that they will not have a single MEP after May 2014, However as the 2015 elections draw near you tend to find that people return to the two main parties and many Tories will do that when faced with the alternative of putting Miliband and Labour back into power even tough most of them detest Cameron. As long as the Tory PLP in Westminster keeps it’s nerve and doesn’t start panicking but I suspect they will view the situation in fatalistic terms as self preservation kicks in. However doubtful that Cameron will be able to re-negotiate Uk membership of EU one thing is certain he is the only one, at the moment, of the three leaders offering any sort of referendum even though the eurosceptics view his promises as dubious. If Labour win then it’s a good chance that there will never be the sort of referendum on the issue that eurosceptics and UKIP favour

          The lead in the polls for Labour is just NOT sufficient to guarantee that they will win a majority as poll leads tend to narrow in an election campaign and at this point in the cycle Labour should be at least 25 points clear given all the problems that Cameron has and the continuous anti-Tory camapaign being waged by the BBC(who are still despite all criticism the broadcaster of choice by the majority)

          So in my opinion it’s well worth a £50 punt on Cameron winning the election in 2015 with an overall majority of 5 – 10 seats and until early 2015 no one will know with any degree of certainty if Labour WILL win back power and probably not even then if the polls haven’t moved more in their favour

    This change on the part of the French suggests that continued integration of Sw!tzerland into the EU is perhaps on the back burner:

    The changes to French law sound reasonable, essentially ensuring French nationals pay for the French system, and discontinuing the option to have coverage spread with Sw!tzerland spread, adding additional costs to French who wish to use Swiss health care facilities.

    The snag is that the nearest hospitals in those areas close to the border are in Sw!tzerland which is why the original option existed in the first place. There is no indication that along with the change the Hollande government intends to build new hospitals in the affected areas.

      This highlights one of the practicalities of living in Europe where there are no sea boundaries. On the German-Austrian border, it is quite normal to be referred to the hospital across the river (for which read “in a different country”).

      The alternative would be a 90 minute journey to the nearest largest town. As you rightly point out, to have a reciprocal agreement with Switzerland in the area of Geneva makes good sense and the numbers involved are relatively small in national terms. Each country picks up the costs of its own citizens. The French patients do slightly better as Swiss standards are higher. It works reciprocally in the Porrentruy area of Switzerland, which is closer to Belfort in France than to Basel, but the numbers involved are much smaller here. Few large French cities are close to the border in France.

      The solution seems simple to me. If French citizens in the proximity of Lac Léman wish to use the Swiss facilities for free, they should pay into the French system. To sever the facility altogether is an inefficient move typical of a socialist government.

          You highlight a good point here. Many French in that area work in Switzerland but live on the French side because it is cheaper. My younger sister’s boyfriend is in that number and bought where he could afford.

          I have no idea what the present arrangements are to prevent double taxation between France and Switzerland, other that they exist in some form, as is the almost universal practice in the western world.

          There still must be a number of French left who both live and work in those parts of France though (which extend some way beyond Thonon-les-Bains) and it was these disenfranchised people whom I had in mind when I made my observation. You don’t spite your own countrymen just to get back at a few other people, who benefit slightly from the accident of residence, unless you are a true socialist.

          As EU Watch rightly points out, the French government are hardly likely to build new hospitals to cater for these people who now have considerably further to travel in the case of illness.

    I would be delighted to be proved wrong but somehow one feels that it goes no further than this. It plays to the weakest point in modern democracy so successfully that large numbers of people will be surely be taken in by it.

      Casual Observer 4 says:

      The new government of Rouhan! are very different. They know that the previous status quo was untenable and not in !ran’s favor. The Syr!a as gateway to !ran for war thesis !ran was fully aware of: When the US was seen to engage with Russ!a on the diplomatic rather than military solution to dealing with Syr!a the whole dynamic changed.

      The sanctions against !ran are not working: !ran just avoids trading through the US. Relatively easy to do as it has its own oil bourse on Kish.

      It really does not make any sense to keep !ran isolated as this is impacting trade across that region. For all of !sraels rhetoric, !srael cannot deny that !ran is a major trading partner and the stand off over the nuclear program is not acting in their favor either.

      The details of the deal will contain the devil, but if O’bama is seen as you describe this is a very powerful win for the US as he may have nearly repaired the damage which B’ush inflicted post 9-11 in destroying the soft power of the US.

      O’bama may spin this as a good legacy item, but that would be very hazardous as even though there is an agreement signed today, what happens tomorrow and moving forward is what will determine the view of history.

      For practical trade reasons !ran is likely being honest here.

      The strategic importance of helium, and certain other gas’ in South Pars to the US cannot be ignored either.

      I suspect the real legacy for O’bama will be that this deal marks the turning point in bringing certain lobby groups within the US back to their rightful place in the hierarchy of power there, and perhaps may signal that the US-!srael relationship is going to be modified. On the flip side it should be noted that !srael have been shifting slightly towards both Ch!na and Russ!a, and those countries have no truck either with !srael’s paranoia about !ran.

      The biggest benefit which may be seen in the short term is that the A-Q groups in northern Afr!ca may need to start shopping around for a new ammunition supplier. One truly hopes they do not find a new one.

        You did say the devil is in the detail but it will take time to tell if Rouhani will keep to either the letter or the spirit of the agreement. Indeed, will his people allow him to deliver this? This is the very area in which I have severe doubts, based on previous experience.

        Iran’s position since the fall of the Shah has been one of obstruction. Even the topography of the area points to that, one cannot pass overland from Turkey to Pаkistan without going through it, unless you go north of the Caspian Sea.

        Many years ago I planned to drіve to Hong Kong and gave up on the attempt, not because of China, but over the Ayatollah.

        If my misgivings are proved wrong, then I shall be delighted. I may even resurrect my 30 year old plans. But none of us are really going to know for quite a while. Meanwhile Barack Hussein will be opening his library and going on the lucrative lecture tour…
