          PS: What idiot do think will come even close to making a 25B bid for this lefty cesspit? Venezuela has no cash left and the Ruskies already have decent facilities installed.

          • Someone’s vanity, coupled with deep pockets, will shift this off our hands, there is absolutely no doubt.

            Of course, I shall be happy to sell it for my modest fee. 6% seems to be the going rate in M Hollande’s country at the moment. That will keep me in peppersteaks for a month or two. I shall not pay it into HSBC naturally or I will only be able to draw out £3000 a day (have they got the skids under them BTW?)

        There are many things that you can say about David Cameron.

        You can say that he is a liar.
        You can say that he is a hypocrite.
        You can say that he is a former drug user.
        You can say he is a former hooligan who, with his fellow droogs, smashed up a restaurant and terrorised its patrons and staff.
        You can say he claimed housing benefits which he was not entitled to.

        You can say all of these things.

        And you can say them because the are all true.

      More hard left nonsense from Ed Balls, following on from Miliband’s plan to limit the size of banks (the announcement of which has already cost the UK taxpayer billions) and ridiculous suggestion of imposing unworkable price controls on an international energy market (good luck with that one). Scorn poured on Balls’ announcement from everywhere, though you wouldn’t know that by watching the BBC.

      Labour are so left-wing they’re unelectable.

        Bilda Berger says:

        Alas, if you get out and about and mix with the smelly plebs, you will find that the overwhelming majority of voters in this land are cretins; not a few of whom relish the idea of making “the rich” pay their “fair share”.

        This “fairness” schtick is something I don’t understand. If everyone paid tax at the same rate (say 25%), then the capitalist running-dog on £1m a year would pay £250K and the heroic, but spotty, flipper of burgers on £15K a year would only pay £3,750. Surely that’s “fair” enough for anybody. Except Ed Balls, of course, but then he’s a loathsome opportunist who is creaming his Y-fronts at the prospect of getting back into office.

          Odd that lefties spout equality, but when i point out that that should mean everyone pays the same for the state (i.e. no tax on incomes) they suddenly decide they’re not for equality.

          Your comment is awaiting moderation. says:

          Rich people, by and large, are less of a burden on the state and should actually pay less tax if we are being fair.

      But labour will win the Euros and that will cement PM Miliband into place so ending ANY referendum on Europe for another decade.

          By the way we have never had a UKIp standing round here anywhere not even for council. I can speak of at least half a dozen parliamentary seats in this area and god knows how many councils.

          That’s the problem no total coverage so all they are going to do is fuck themselves, fuck the right and let Milliband sneak in. You won’t be quite as popular if that happens in fact I suggest you hide all your rosettes and banners in the attic under local and key just in case

            Cameron and the Tories are pro EU.

            Voting for them condemns us to more of the sale left wing Tory flavoured crap.

            The EU issue and all of the LibLabCon focused on ensuring the UK loses the last small vestiges of sovereignty we have left, is the biggest issue facing the country.

            As much as I despise Labour, I despise the EU more.

            Voting for the pro EU Tory party is the biggest mistake you will ever make and your children, and their children’s children will regret it.

        “And in 10 years the crisis will be over and the EU will be flourishing again so there won’t be any point in a vote.”

        If the EU still exists in 10 years’ time (which is far from likely), it’ll be insisting on setting the budgets for all EU ‘states’. By which point, even Labour will be clamouring to get out of it.

          Bemused says:

          It defnitely won’t be over in ten years time. By then a whole generation of young people will have been out of work for 15 years. Many will have turned to the black economy and then onto crime, others will have joined extremist political organisations.

          Nationalist socialist parties will be on the rise and will happily resort to violence to achieve their ends given that thois can readily be justified on the grounds they have been disenfranchised by the EU.

          The Eurozone has only been in existence for ten years and it has led to this. This is only the beginning of the damage that an empowered EU has been able to inflict on us.

          The EU is a triumph of “end justifies the means” Fabian socialist idealism that will inevitably lead to disaster and mayhem just as all previous socialist idealism has led to disaster and mayhem. It’s beginning to look like the 2030′s will be a replay of the 1930′s.

        Doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be taking steps to stop Labour in 2015, they’ve lurched to the left and need to be taught a lesson. We should all vote tactically to reduce Labour’s seats in the next parliament.

          Labour just cannot allow this rebounding economy. It undermines absolutely everything they have said since 2010 and shows competence that was lacking in their government. Its all politics and its get power whatever it takes, however much it hurts the country just get power.

            Well even the Daily Mail readers were all for the 50% tax hike.

            It’s like this – the rich that pay their tax are already paying 40% on most of it. Those that don’t pay their tax won’t pay the 50% either. So basically they are putting up the tax on those all-round good eggs that are already paying a hell of a lot of tax, whilst refusing to tax those that avoid paying it completely.

            What a load of wank.

      A very good demonstration of the Laffer Curve in action.

      • 153
        Casual Observer 5 says:

        Another way of looking at this:

        50% tax rate netted: £ 0.83 bn per percent.

        45% tax rate netted: £ 1.10 bn per percent.

        A problem may be

        Each % cut made the exchequer on average an additional £ 0.05 bn per % of tax.

        A further 5% cut to 40% would probably yield roughly the same increase, leading to 40% tax rate netting about £ 1.30 bn per percent.

        At 40% raising £ 1.30 bn per percent, the total revenue expected would be of order £ 52 bn / year.

        The peak on this curve, or where you would start to see a fall in revenue as the tax rate is decreased would occur somewhere between 33 and 38% tax rate.

        A guess is that by cutting to about 38% rate the real maximum would be found, at that maximum would be ~ £ 54 bn / year, unless the cut really does stimulate a lot of currently avoided / evaded tax revenue to be forthcoming, in which case the total income could be significantly higher.

            A big problem regarding tax is the “Charity” aspect. Government should look long and hard at the sculduggery surrounding charities and the so called donations to charity. The rot starts at the ground level- take a few old bits to the shop and get asked”do you want this gift aided” “No”,I say-” I do not want that bit of tax which is supposed to go to the government for the NHS,pensions,schools etc.,to go to your chief executives riding around in their fancy cars and boosting their already bloated salaries”.
            Rich persons who give to charity should donate after they have paid correct tax and not before. This lowers their income and they end up paying less tax to government where the money is really needed.

            The central banks fund wars, and fiat money enables that funding to go on indefinitely.

            This is a very strong argument in favor of returning to the gold standard, after stringing the central banking cartel and consigning their ilk to history.

          • Eh? says:

            The gold standard was a fucking disaster.

            1] When an economy is growing at an average of 2.5% in real wealth due to improved production techniques, being fixed to a gold standard actually leads to deflation. Securing more gold becomes an end goal and farmers give up farming to hunt gold.

            2] There is really nothing to stop anybody simply printing more IOUs in the form of bank notes regardless of how much they have in reserve – when people find this out the shit hits the fan

            3] When people really need more currency (such as during a war) they find they can’t have it, unless they come off the gold standard. Coming off the gold standard suddenly just as you enter a war is not a great idea.

            Limits on the amount of debt that can be created are much more reasonable. The actual amount of debt that is required at any given time is actually pretty small compared to the real economic activity in the economy. But the banks don’t want that because they would become a small part of the economy instead of a huge part of the economy. Governments don’t want that because they just lov having access to the next generations wealth. The people don’t know what they want because most of them are stupid, and the stupid ones easily outvote those with IQ >120 which is what you need to understand economics. So much for democracy.

          • Casual Observer 5 says:

            No system is perfect – but some are more preferable.

            The Gold Standard puts a strict limit on what governments can raise, which limits their ability to wage unnecessary wars or perpetuate wars indefinitely.

            A good question:

            Could !raq or Afghan!stan have happened in a non-Fiat environment ?


            i) !raq : No – The funding would not have been forthcoming.

            ii) Afghan!stan : Yes – but not for 10 years, allowing a NATO Article 5 response to transform itself into some screwed up attempt to rebuild the country that was always doomed to failure.

            The other thing which is important to note is that whilst governments can build up large debts in the Fiat system, the liabilities for paying those debts off is transferred to the people, and there is nothing hard to stop governments building up the debt in the first place.

            Your point about farmers is not quite right, as every farmer and person knows that you cannot eat gold.

            In a free economy on the gold standard, if farmers did go off to look for gold, others would fill that void and produce food.

            Pure gold standard is not quite workable, but adding silver and something like Bitcoin would be. It’s effect on government funding and constraining government largess is what is important.

            Fiat money, except for the US $ which has a very powerful military to back it up is broadly worthless these days.

            The Euro is a good case in point: There are not even any real landmarks printed on their notes, and that currency has zero sovereign backing.

      That shit car is a very sensible thing to leave at an unattended railway car park when you are away all day. To leave a Porche there would be asking for it.

      One of my friends was a major shareholder in one of the biggest Joberg Insurers. He lived in four different jurisdictions so was a perpetual traveller, very convenient for taxation purposes at that time. He could have had any car he wanted but drove around London in a beaten up old BMW. I travelled in it as passenger and the door rubber partly fell off when I got in!

      It is better to be a shabby millionaire in this dangerous world rather than ostensibly rich. I was running a far nicer car than his at the time. My reward for this was to have it broken into and a £1000 car phone stolen! In those days the mobiles were the size and weight of house bricks so you had one in the car and another in your case.

      There is a particular problem in Britain now in having obvious wealth. Those who do show it off become prisoner to their own egos. One has to admire Susan Boyle for applying to Ladbrokes for a part time job when she is worth £20m. At least she shows signs of a grounded approach to her money. Whether it will work for her is another matter.

      It also sounds as if your friend might have paid better attention to the distribution of his asset base and had improved tax planning as he seems to have some financial worries now that one would not expect from someone who has held down his sort of position. There is still much which can be done using corporate structures to retain past earnings and to only suffer tax when they are drawn down in the UK to pay ongoing expenses.

      I hope he recovers quickly but wonder whether he will reassess his entire situation in the aftermath of this incident. Making money is fun but one wants to live some time to enjoy what it can enable you to do. Money of itself is pretty useless and, at some point, you are a long time dead…

        Guarantee that the reference to the car is a sort of in joke, and in some ways the worst aspect of this story. That is making light of a serious situation, but such was that life which is now firmly in my past.

        As for sensible distribution of asset base – I make no comment on any of that other than he made his decisions in life.

        Period of reflection is likely on the cards for him, as it would be for anyone who had just been shot on the way to work.

        It doesn’t really matter what you do with your asset base the way the markets have been recently. Just an FYI: This guy is one of those who has been trying to keep the whole shebang afloat and honest. Not exclusively for personal gain either.

        The brokers have largely been honest, and keeping the banks as honest as possible.

          Used to visit Brentwood often for both business and personal reasons. A friend in Ingatestone used to own a business in Shenfield. Very familiar with that station, though I would normally drive. Another colleague in Pilgrims Hatch. Stayed with all of them and looking at the map, it brings back several lifetimes!

          Having had a UK scope for about three decades, I can look at anywhere and say similar things though and, being insatiably curious, I never missed an opportunity to discover new places in order to increase my understanding and enjoyment of the country. Maybe I missed some nuances?

          My closest connection with money broking was I lived next door to a Tulletts director (before the 1990 merger) but I have to admit that our worlds were rather different even though we were friendly enough. You probably met him. I did know people from Collins and Panmure but the names changed so many times that I am now completely out of touch.

          On what one does with asset base at any time, good or bad: No answer is complete without the word spread IMHO!

          Trying to keep anything honest usually results in you being sacked, but I suppose if enough money is involved, they might shoot you instead.

        You admire Boyle, worth over £20 million, for applying for a job that she clearly doesn’t need, when clearly that job would otherwise go to an ordinary person who does need it? What’s to admire?

    Get Dredging Chaps says:

    It’s time to politely tell environmentalists where to go and get the silt out of the rivers and drainage channels.

    The fact that they used to be dredged and now contain wiggly worms and insects should tell anyone with just an ounce of common sense that once dredged the critters will come back just like they always did.

    Nature is a lot tougher than given credit for.

    There is one fact that keeps on being ignored by the bovine tribal idiots that vote for Labour.

    Without exception EVERY attempt at governing by the Labour party has ended in an economic and social mess.

    The other uncomfortable truth is that each and every time the Conservatives have had to come in and clean up their mess.

    Why can’t people learn?

      That was a few years back.

      Obamacare being an unmitigated cluster-fuck that has been broadly rejected by the younger generation was not predicted. How that affects the Fabian agenda is debatable.

      So – Vince Cable sees to be lefty Fabian, but the real question:

      Is David Cameron a left leaning Fabian ?

        One step closer to UKIP, the party of fruitcakes, so they would have us believe, Liebour back to it’s usual even before it has won the 2015 vote, May isn’t to far away so the Euro’s will see how things are going.

        I left a restaurant in Glasgow, and as it was a warm summer night decided to walk back along Sauchiehall Street to my hotel. The manager was aghast at this idea, feared for my safety and offered to call a taxi. When I declined, he thrust a copy of the Big Issue into my hands, saying that it might offer me some protection…I made it OK, although some upheavals outside the Victoria nightclub.

    The Governor warned today that financial institutions must not see fines for misconduct as “a cost of doing business” and said only “exemplary behaviour” would restore trust in the industry.

    Too right.

    Methinks a combination of ‘Exemplary Fines’ and bad publicity should do the trick

    Nigel is great on this sort of stuff – but to get anywhere there also needs to be a lengthy period of the party looking serious and no daft errors like refering to the last election manifesto as ‘drivel’.

    Actually this drug is not prescribed to people who want cosmetic weight loss.

Dan Hodges on Team Miliband:

“‘Poisonous’, was the picture painted by one former senior advisor. ‘Dysfunctional,’ said one shadow cabinet member. ‘A bunch of medieval courtiers, not an office,’ said another. The most positive description I could get was ‘It’s a work in progress. They’re learning. Slowly. But they are learning.’”

Nick Clegg says:

Do you want lies with that?
