WATCH: Parliamentary Pancake Race 2014

Always at the cutting edge of new media technological advancement Guido experimented with some multi-platform reporting this morning, sending his senior Vine correspondent down to the Parliamentary Pancake Race. Neo-Guido has been going to this event for the best part of half a decade and he can confirm that Stephen Pound’s jokes have not got any funnier in that time. Nick Robinson was once again chasing the print media this morning, while the sharp elbows of the BBC’s Robbie Gibb were felt in the ribs of politicians not for the first time. Congratulations to the winners: the Lords. Missing their chief-tosser Lord Rennard…

    This will accelerate U default:

    NB: P’tin gave assurances at start of move into Cr!mea that gas would not be used as a weapon. However, this move was also announced then, now confirmed and in place.

    U was getting a 45% price reduction on gas price that it purchases from R-Fed, and were unable to pay the bill for that.

    U already has outstanding gas debt of $1.55 bn owed to R-Fed.

      It would not really be WWIII.

      The concern is that Europe would not survive a direct confrontation between US and R-Fed, which the US would win.

      This is the position that EU incompetence has taken us.

      One hopes that the US does not alter its negative view of Europe much further.

      The reality is that having proved itself worthless the EU is fully disposable in this game.

    US now opting to throw further money directly at the U:

    Given outstanding debts and corruption in the country it is likely money wasted.

    If US wishes to follow this path it would be wiser to discuss directly with U’s principal creditors – ie. R-Fed and Ch!na.

    C O (Ξ4) says:

    This is a very good analysis of EU failings viz U, worth reading:

    One point raised is that G’ermany was lead on EU’s eastern strategy, but UK had withdrawn from EU Foreign Policy ages ago, and was concerned about straining relations further with M’oscow.

    It is clear where the hawkish East European countries have stood, and stood behind G’ermany.

    UK stood back because it was frozen out of EU Foreign Policy making by the EU itself some time back, as well as other areas of EU governance.

    This makes a very strong case for exiting the EU, but also clearly underlines that the EU is the single biggest strategic threat that the UK faces at present.

    Between the lines: it indicates that US thinking is still sympathetic towards the UK (slight relief) but the EU is distinctly out of favour.

      True. Local government in many parts of the UK is now burdened by endemic corruption. Much of our;public sector is in thrall to predatory croney capitalists – despite being a nation of vibrant small businesses, the public sector typically only interfaces with corrupting, globalised, non-taxpaying oligopolists.
