    Constitution, what constitution? says:

    You rightly go after the traitor Blair

    But the real enemy of the UK is not the EU (though it needs reforming)

    It is the oligarchs who use the City for all manner of money laundering fraud etc which has cost and is still costing the British taxpayer billions…who bent the banks so that they became zombies

    And bend the judicial system with the collaboration of the pimp City solicitors…(the Rule of Law has been broken in the UK since Blair knobbled the system with his shyster lawyer friends)

    And bend the whole political system to get tax breaks and other favours which pass in the small print of legislation (“non dom” etc)

    Most of these oligarchs (expecially but not only Russian) are criminals who have escaped from their own countries after pillaging them

    Blair represents them

    The City is prostrate before them (among others)

    They represent a far more dangerous “enemy within”

    What’s wrong with being a medieval hangover? The hereditaries have a supreme advantage: they become lords by sheer accident. Far better than getting yourself appointed by bribery and fiddling. As for electing lords, look at the disgusting creatures in the Commons. You want a second chamber like that?

  85. 85

    I would suggest the opposite is true and that Podiceps is right.

    These who have made it in some way, do not have the inferiority complex that others who have not. Sometimes that will play out badly, for sure.

    But more often than not, such people can afford to play matters altruistically as they no longer have any particular axe to grind.

    Those who used to go to the House of Lords did not go because of the daily expense allowance. There was no such thing. Indeed, had they been offered it, they would in the main have turned it down.

    I am not trying to present a case that they would have necessarily been the very best brains you could find but their was no cause to doubt them on motive.

    Modernisers often make things worse than better because they, almost by definition, have no historical perspective.

    Perhaps one reason why there is such disenfranchisement with the coalition government is because the people were really voting for a shift back to the part Hayekian philosophy of Thatcher.

    The complete failure to apply Hayek has made the damage caused by Labour much worst.

    The lesson learned is that just propagandizing austerity without actually doing it, and keeping government over sized just pushes up the national debt, and will create the conditions for radical political change to sweep in.

    Captain Plum says:

    Is Yvette Cooper anything to do with the Mysterons?

    “The Mysterons themselves are never seen on screen. They broadcast their threats by radio, often disguising their intentions with word play- such as stating that they will ‘Kill Time’ when they intend to kill a major Spanish official whose surname is ‘Tiempo’ (Spanish for ‘Time’)-, and are represented visually only by twin rings of green light, suggestive of eyes, that they project onto scenes of murder and destruction of their making from which likenesses emerge. The Mysteron likenesses created are impervious to X-Rays- showing up on X-Rays as though they were conventional photographs- and can only be destroyed by massive amounts of electricity. The recreation process they use only requires the subject to be clinically dead before the copy is created, with Spectrum once setting a trap by utilizing a major that the Mysterons had attempted to kill who had been resuscitated in hospital after he had been recreated.”

    As I have always said Labour and lib dems oppose your right to a referendum on the EU. Of course UKIP will give us just that but the problem is they can’t despite hard work and best efforts secure enough seats to prevent Labour seizing power again. In that event referendums will be gone for a lifetime if not for ever, UKIP will be marginalised.

    We must destroy the threat from the left and Labour. As much as I want to vote UKIP the left must be destroyed. Today they showed their true colours and as such we put Tory in first. Then we remove the Tories if they don’t use the parliament act.
    Win win either Tories or UKIP while the left are destroyed

    Don’t quite know how to say this because your posts are, almost invariably, so balanced and sensible, but to attribute to Jimmy the possession of a sane voice may just have disturbed the balance of his mind too far and sent him into the wrong orbit.

    The truth is that he did not enjoy Brown at all. He only liked Blair for the first term but Blair II and Blair III were not good for him either.

    So there he was thinking (I won’t say singing so as not to portray it as totally ludicrous…) thinking Things can only get better… and could not come to terms with the fact that it all went inevitably, remorselessly downhill from there.

    Now he sees the party with two heads, two Eds if you prefer, and he is wondering how the world can have gone so, so wrong.

    He knows that their ship is going to hit the buffers (yes, it is so bad that the mixed metaphor is actually valid here!)

    I would just counsel that you be easy on him. He is not a lost cause, as you have rightly spotted.

    No, because the guy with DNA all over the corpse is currently doing 16 years in prison for her murder.

    The only question is why on earth did Knox fit up an innocent bartender and tell a pack of lies to cover herself that were subsequently exposed?

    K’inkora is a prime example of such a honey trap – but things seem to be hotting up at Oxford and C’herwell again – and it looks like Common Purpose is involved alongside certain operatives of the UK security services.

    The telephone lines most people use for their internet only dissipate about 1W each. So to power those lines even if every household on the planet had internet would require just one power station.

    What they are saying is that cloud computing requires a lot of power. But then so does using a laptop – about 50W each. So work that up across billions of people and it soon adds up, but cloud computing probably uses the equivalent of 3 power stations rather than 30 and as a percentage of global energy consumption is miniscule.

    Since it allows me to work from home and not use any petrol commuting, I would say it probably has its advantages.

    You can’t stop Labour now. Gordon Brown gave thousands of £ to people in the bottom half of society via tax credits.

    If you work it out you will find people doing a part time job in Starfucks with three kids are taking about as much £ home as a local architect, the GP, chartered engineer, chartered accountant etc.

    All these people are starting to cut back on their hours to spend more time with their kids because if they put in more hours they lose so much money it isn’t worth the bother.

    The people in the bottom half are not going to give up those tax credit payments, not now. They’ve learned to love them. They will keep voting Labour until they’ve killed the magic money tree known as the middle class.

    It’s the socialist way, but they’ve done it softly softly this time, so we didn’t see it coming.

    The Tories are finished, UKIP will get nowhere and the UK is finished. It’s only a matter of time.

    All I would say is we just have to hope that our compatriots start to see sense and question if it really makes sense for someone doing 5 half-days a week burger flipping to be getting the same income via tax credits as a surgeon?

    Fact is the system they put in under Brown was so grotesque it makes no economic sense at all. People on £30K a year are being taxed at a marginal rate of 75% so they are cutting back on hours like crazy – even going part-time or changing to shelf-stacking jobs.

    Brown has already introduced communism by the back door, but the nation is limping on without realising the damage he has done. We need Milliband to come in and really break the system. It’s the only way we will get the people with low intelligence to see that maybe there is something wrong. We need “Winter of Discontent II” for the UK to wake up.

So claiming that current unusual weather is caused by a climate that has remained static makes no sense. Now is not the time to be making outrageous claims about climate change. Doesn’t stop them.

    I note that the Lord Leveson, that forensically discerning gentleman, remarked that there was an attempt to intercept, ahem, problematic posts and that illustrated that it was not an anything-goes, wild-west blog.

    Of course, it was suggested at the time that no attempt to filter was better than a slight one which then could be seen as tantamount to an admission of responsibility. I never bought that latter line myself and the courts have seemed to steer away from it too although the situation looked very dodgy for a while.

    So the reverse of the above seems to have been the case. If that has prevented various state nuisances from knocking on the door at some ungodly hour and walking away with computers then, however inconvenient to the scribblers, it has been warranted.

    Complaints of habitual sexual abuse of young boys by three senior members of staff at Kincora rocked Northern Ireland in the early 1980s.

    It is so old that I had forgotten it, if indeed, I ever noticed it. At the time I was very busy creating a large business and would simply skim the news in the paper. That we should have to wait for the 30-year rule to discover that a D-Notice (as it was then called), purportedly under the guise of it being a national security issue, was a way to conceal a series of sex crimes and murders committed against vulnerable kids is about as low as it gets.

    Whatever else is awaiting discovery?

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
