      QPR To Call New Stadium The Loser Dome
      Don’t be sellfish… 1000
      Over spending underachievers QPR has announced plans to build a new 40,000 seater stadium, called The Loser Dome.

      The arena, which the club promise will be a cauldron of disappointment, will be built on an ancient West London burial ground, maximising the potential for failure.

      Joke millionaire and pretend person Tony Fernandes, who acquired the club after he lost a bet, revealed his excitement over the project.

      He said: “We want to ensure that QPR are driven into the ground, so that even when I die in a horrible staged accident, no one will want to buy this stinking exponent of failure.”

      An artist’s impression of The Loser Dome

      Asked about the stadium’s unusual name, the owner responded: “Yes, The Loser Dome – it hit me one night in bed – I sat up and said ‘we’re a bunch of fucking losers…let’s build a dome’.”

      QPR manager Harry Redknapp confirmed the owner is committed to being a laughing stock.

      He said: “Tony is an amazing guy. Never in my life have I met someone so dedicated to being a fuck up.

      “I keep telling him ‘you’re at the right club mate, we’re a bunch of overpaid wankers’.”

      English to get benefits whether or not they speak English

      ENGLISH people will continue to receive benefits even if they make no attempt to speak, read or write in English.

      New rules will deny benefits to those who have had the fewest opportunities to learn the native language, while offering a weekly stipend to those who have heard it every day of their lives but still refuse to make proper use of it.

      Nicolae Stamescu, from the Romanian town of Covasna, said: “I try do English but it take long time. How you at Romanian today?”

      Nathan Muir, an unemployed sociology graduate from Exeter, said: “I try do English but it take long time. Look at funny thing on phone.”

      He added: “I get money from guvnerment coz school not help my brain.”

      Julian Cook, professor of two-tier systems at Roehampton University, said: “The key principle is that the better your command of English the more money you should get from the taxpayer.

      “For example, MPs, those nice people who run the Royal Bank of Scotland and Her Majesty the Queen.”

    How foreign students are fleecing Britain: Taxpayers are owed £46 billion in outstanding student loans. So why are foreigners being allowed to vanish with no intention of paying their debts?

    Roll on 1st Jan………

    • 52
      Doctor Mick says:

      I suspect the bulk of the unpaid loans is to the account of British ex-students. The way it works is that there is no obligation to pay back the loan unless you earn over a certain amount. If you never earn that much then you don’t need to repay the loan. And after 30 years the debt is written off.

    • 57
      DAVE IMMATURE SCHOOL BOY CAMERAMONG says:

      And there was me believing the government spin on this , that all foreign students had to prove they had enough financial means to support their own education ,

        Arkwright says:

        Easy solution to this. Foreign students should pay up front. Simples. Wonder why the government cannot see it.

    We have a cappuccino economy:

    Services        77.8%
    Production      15.2%
    Construction     6.3%
    Agriculture      0.7%
    

    Any increase in growth requires an increase in household indebtedness. This means they use up the remainder of their savings, or borrow more, because personal incomes are not rising.

    The new growth, whilst welcome, is therefore unsustainable. It is the equivalent of a sticky plaster.

    The best thing the government could do would be to lift the tax and regulatory burden upon manufacturers.

    The Special Economic zone (SEZ) so favoured by India and China would be a great idea – if Europe would allow it. Of course, it does not and will not, as it means relinquishing control.

    So we are all economically neutered by an unelected oligarchy, none of whom have ever produced anything useful in their lives. Vote UKIP!

        It is a good point but anything which earns money/wealth from outside one’s own system must be good. There is a reason why the world’s oldest profession is what it is.

        The mistake can be identified using old fashioned banking reasoning: Spread Your Risk! If the UK economy were say 60% manufacturing and 40% services, then it would be more soundly based, offer increased employment of an improved nature and present a good base for our excellent ideas-based enterprises.

        “Desperately old fashioned thinking”, some will say but hey, it hasn’t worked very well the other way, has it? ;-)

          The new Messiah says:

          As I said (#8), the USA and Germany both have a service sector of around 70% of GDP. So we are not that much different. But less retail and much more manufacturing would be a better sign of recovery.

          • Doctor Mick says:

            We cannot compete with low wage economies in certain manufacturing areas which is why e.g. our steel industry and shipbuilding have declined while those of India and China have risen. As the Third World develops we have to keep ahead of the game in terms of services and hi-tech industries. We can’t compete on volume but we should lead the way in quality and innovation.

          • Mornington Crescent says:

            All fine and dandy in theory, Doctor, but what happens to us when the Chinks and Indians catch up with us on quality and innovation, eh?

          • Anonymous says:

            What is clear is developed countries will need smaller populations. There is simply not enough jobs to go round for post industrial nations with industrial revolution sized populations.

            New technology, off shoring and de-industrialisation all mean we need far, far fewer people employed. But governments don’t seem to realise this, still living in a world 50 years out of date.

            Tory party ideologues will argue there’s no such thing as a finite number of jobs, but nor is there an infinite number of jobs, unless you are going to go down the route of non-job creation and over manning. When new sources of employment do appear, they are generally not labour intensive.

Now they ARE the economy.

      dai economically says:

      the business rate is of relevance

      levying tax where the economic process takes place ensures that we can’t compete

      business rates are several times the level of the services they are supposed to pay for

      finding a suitable rate of tax on ‘net’ profits may be less important than penalising the economic process

    2. Abolish all taxes on petrol,electricity and gas.

    3. Halt all low/un-skilled immigration until we have a shortage of low/un-skilled labour.

Other sources implied that Savile’s membership of P.I.E was known to others within the BBC who were either sympathetic to its objectives or were members themselves.

The implications of Blair’s Wars are still being felt to-day…Iraq almost a failed state and Afghanistan likely to go the same way within 12 months of ISAF pulling out in 2014…the failure of Cameron to win the Syria vote was a direct result of the break down of trust between the public and its leaders. If a PM can no longer stand at the Dispatch Box in Parliament and ask the Commons for authorisation for war in the national interest and NOT be believed who is to blame for that state of affairs and the fact that future British PMs of all parties will face the same problem ?

      In my own case the murder of my first wife, my stepson, my Father-in-law, nearly thirty friends and neighbours and about three dozen acquaintances does tend to colour my feelings. Some of these deaths included prolonged torture and gang rape before blessed release. Regular home invasions, arson and petty burglaries mean that I have hardly any mementos of the departed to comfort me in my old age.
      Strangely, I observe that the UK is a far more racist country than South Africa ever was and I, despite my experiences, a non-racist until I came here, am beginning to fall into that way of thinking. I believe that is because in Africa no one, Black or White, pretends that “skellums” are anything other than bad people. Here the law says that one is not allowed to say that and act as though being Black must be treated as a disability, like mental retardation or having a cleft palate and therefore must receive preferential treatment, State cash and be given enormous latitude for bad behaviour.
      It probably is not “hatred” as you suggest, more despair at the stupidity at the adoption of left wing moronic thinking backed by draconian laws for anyone who disagrees.

          UKIP is a vote for Labour but Cameron only has himself to blame says:

          A likely scenario is that UKIP comes top or close second to Labour in European elections with Tories 3rd and LibDems 4th. That will create one all mighty row in the Tory party as sitting Tory MPs with small majorities or in marginals will start to get even more fractious and Cameron will start to sound more and more right wing as will the Party Manifesto for the 2015 election. He won’t be able to do anything as the LibDems will put brake on but relations in the coalition will get more strained.

          Inevitably in general election(normally that is)people tend to return to the two main parties and abandon “protest parties” which UKIP is presently seen as. The question is will enough people return to Tory ranks or will enough vote UKIP in marginals thus depriving sitting Tory of seat and Cameron of power. Labour are also under threat but not as much.

          If that happens then Miliband is home and dry but probably only as the largest party(going into coalition with LibDem rump led temprarily by Cable) or a small majority. The joker of course is Scottish Independence. If the Scots vote for independence then wef 16 March 2016 Labour and LibDems will lose 60 odd MPs and Miliband his majority which will result in another election. In that case the Tory Party has an inbuilt advantage. Cameron will have course long gone by then. If he fails to win he’ll be gone by the Monday of the week following the election. If he only manages to be the largest party again he’ll be on borrowed time and could probably stumble along for up to 12 months as a minority as it’s unlikely LibDem rump will go into coalition with him.

          So either way UKIP ill affect the political scheme up to and after 2015

        The best is the constant mispronunciation of Qunu. The Q is a back-palate click, not a “K”. To say “KOO-NOO” means turd. Wankers!

    Capital has stolen the wealth of those that create it. There will be no change in these circumstances until there has been social upheaval against it and a new order arises from the ashes. I am not saying there will be a revolution as there is no evidence of this ever going to happen. However I do worry that the capitalist economies never see an economic bubble that is about to burst because it is an inherent belief in the system that it will always grow and create wealth. The same belief at the moment cements the view that all is well and that there is nothing wrong with making most people poorer at an elites expense. Just like the economic bubble they are likely to be proven wrong

      No they won’t.

      You don’t get it do you. Dimbleby’s tribe don’t do national socialism.

      Mandela represented the libertarian objective of racial equality, which is far-right, anarchistic, which just happens to be good for big business (an objective that has been pursued in the UK, US and SA). Big business is colour blind as we are all seen as equal consumers. The more consumers (immigrants?) there are the better. Mandela was referred to “Comrade Mandela” on QT on Thuesday by the ANC representative – the West (& the libertarian BBC) has conveniently turned a blind eye to his communist roots. Free market ideology was not sacrificed in SA after Mandela was allowed (by the IMF) to take power in SA. It was an IMF pre-requisite. None of SA’s big business were nationalised which was surely rather strange considering Mandela was supposed to be a communist. Hence his cult status as far as the West is concerned.

      Now the North Koreans are proper national socialists. They don’t bow down to the international monied (i.e. the cosmopolitans/chosen ones) interests. And for that reason, the BBC will not be allowed to fawn over the North Koreans.

      Libertarianism is J’ewish Austrian/Frankfurt/Chicago School construct that thrives on the dogma of freemarket boom-and-bust.

      Castro (another communist/national socialist) is also near to death. You won’t see the BBC camped out in Cuba for his funeral as he is not a libertarian.

      Watch and see that I am right.

    EXPOSED: David Rose rips UK climate change committee for being on the take
    Posted on December 14, 2013 by Anthony Watts

    The fatcat ecocrats exposed: Web of ‘green’ politicians, tycoons and power brokers who help each other benefit from billions raised on your bills

    Four of nine-person Climate Change Committee, official watchdog that dictates green energy policy, are, or were until recently, being paid by firms that benefit from committee decisions

    Other industries would stand accused of damning conflicts of interest but when it comes to global warming, anything goes…

    The Mail on Sunday today reveals the extraordinary web of political and financial interests creating dozens of eco-millionaires from green levies on household energy bills.

    A three-month investigation shows that some of the most outspoken campaigners who demand that consumers pay the colossal price of shifting to renewable energy are also getting rich from their efforts.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
