    Why does the ever gullible British public repetitively re-elect the serially failed Conservative, Labour, and Liberal parties to power over them? None of these ego driven pretentious posturing lying seriously incompetent corruptible carpetbaggers are remotely worthy of the job. We do urgently need a completely new political mind set, and a political system permanently free of professional politicians, their corruptibility, their masters and their lackeys. We need a written constitution, one not warped together by scheming political manipulators, but with power always safely in the hands of the people, and with real checks and balances to put a rein on their ambitions.. We need sweeping political, sociological, cultural and economic changes in the way this country is run. We need the modern day equivalent of a British Jefferson and Madison to bring us into a government of the people, for the people and by the people but of course that will not happen.

        No.

        This may sound odd to you but I have only placed one bet in my lifetime (unlike our esteemed host.)

        I was Red Rum who came in at 9/1. I was in my first management post and, when the office learned that I had backed the horse on the nose, they all placed bets, some considerably larger than my £3. They did this because they all knew I never placed any bets.

        To be honest, if I walked into a bookies, I would not know how to place a bet, what to write on the slip or how I should go about collecting. That was all done for me by my grateful staff! I am clueless on this and, frankly, it does not even bother me.

        To your point, I believe you may be true. The position that George Osborne has taken on pensions certainly creates a much stronger chance of large numbers of people who can see ahead to their retirement date thinking: “I want the cash.”

        Given that Gordon Brown’s approach to pensions was to raid them, one can take the view that this approach is only correct in handing control back to the saver. But a more cynical interpretation is that it is intended to create a mini-boom, which will then leave people feeling more prosperous in the short term but potentially leave them poorer in the long term.

        My preference is to get my savings (and they are mine) outside the purview of the British government of any persuasion.

        I am happy to say “Vote UKIP”. I am happy to vote UKIP. I am happy to set out my reasons for doing so. How my supposed fellow citizens might end up voting in 12 months time is way beyond me.

        So thank you for your offer but I shall resist. I prefer the course of reason to macho gestures. But you ought to know that by now…

          I think the cynical mini-boom scenario is the one to back. Although since all of us cannot immediately just withdraw all our pension money and blow it on hot and cold running hookers it will probably amount to a small (upward) step change in consumer spending as retirees trickle on-line year after tear.

          At some point the ‘cost’ in terms of pensioners who blew the lot and then throw themselves on the mercy of the state will start to eat into that upward DC shift of ‘enabled’ pensioners. Overall, a couple of decades down the line I’ll suspect there’ll be no overall effect either way. But in terms of allowing people access to their own money I’m all in favour and if it gives the economy a short term leg-up then so much the better.

            In fairness to the Imbecile (and I can’t believe I’m writing this) he did, until he realised what a monumental tax-break it was to the wealthy middle classes, allow people to sock away their entire annual salary into their pension.

            I remember predicting that anybody above a certain salary and with a bit of savings already in the bank would simply bang their entire salary in their pension (SIPP) and then use it to buy stuff at effectively 40% discount. Which is exactly what happened.

            What I don’t understand is why nobody at the treasury informed the Imbecile of this obvious exponential tax-avoidance machine he had created.

            But then again he did double the tax rate on the poorest from 10% to 20% and presented it as a ‘good’ thing. Essentially, as a chancellor, mathematician and student of human behaviour he remains an utter fucking Imbecile.

        Here we are, some eight decades later, with similar strictures being placed on the state’s worst enemies (as it sees it…), its own people!

        That applies to the EU, UK and USA equally.

        I had dinner today with an ex-member of the Hitler Youth from eastern Bavaria whom I have known for some years. (FFS, I hope Jimmy does not come here tonight or he will not be able to control himself!) He is 82. He had no choice – he was in it.

        He has limited English, I have limited German. His English wife has lived in Germany for 47 years and helps to translate. Most of the time it is not necessary as we see eye to eye. He is a libertarian.

        I do not like the political situation in Russia that much. China neither. But I would be hard pressed to argue that it was any better in the EU, UK and USA.

        If I was challenged to explain this seemingly outlandish statement, I would say that the situation owed its position much more to graft, indolence, indifference, poor reasoning, political correctness, short-sighted expediency, people’s over-inflated egos and a whole host of other similar horrors.

        But the potential effects of these could well lead to just as much evil as in both World Wars combined.

        In saying this, I would be delighted to be proved wrong…

          Agree with your negative outlook on political situations – but would say that the comparison is very superficial. Not to denigrate your assertion, but when looked at more closely it is more complex and murky.

          The difference with R’ussia now is that most capital is not owned by the state: However, most of its hydrocarbon export industries de facto are, the problems identified by the CEUE to the League of Nations with the USSR back in the early 1930s still apply today in the energy sector: A problem obvious in Europe now via U’kraine.

          The one party state of Ch!na despite apparent liberalisation demonstrates its approach to abusing export markets as a de facto state actor daily.

          Interlinking R’ussia and Ch!na through long term energy deals will create a dynamic which will affect the policies that they implement as State actors directly. As there is no real decoupling of the States from the buy and sell sides, this means that from the point the deal was signed they are in an informal confederation of sorts, the terms of exit dictated by whatever clauses exist in the contracts signed.

          A question is: Did Ch!na fully realize this when it signed the contract ? R’ussia most certainly would have done. The recent moves by R’uss!a to open dialog with DPRK reflect an immediate effect of this deal.

          The geopolitical implications may help explain the shift in mood of the US.

          The R-Fed is a model which Europe should not move towards or emulate: It is at heart repugnant. On a separate point above it does appear that the more enlightened European Union is drifting back into bad habits first promulgated in the Paneuropean Union: Even the Nazi’s had the sense to ban that back in 1933. The direct connection to the Habsburg dynasty should be noted.

          No problems.

          I was not considering the situation in the context of the gas supply deal, even though you had mentioned it. That is because I had not followed it anything like as closely as you must have done so was not attuned to the subtleties in the same way.

          My point was more directed towards the perception of problems in the 1930s compared with the problems of today and to compare that striking similarity with the views of a friend from Bayern.

          One could argue there is a sense in which any hydrocarbon industry, export or otherwise, is owned by the state, any state, but let that ride for now.

          What I find interesting with this deal is that it has been negotiated for years and, all of a sudden, it is a done deal.

          Who has been bounced and why?

          Could it be that the change in US mood which you have correctly identified is not a consequence at all but a cause? In all I have read about this, probably a mere fraction of what you have, that is how the situation appears from my perspective to have developed. It is all Crimea/UA aspirations led IMO.

            After Gordon Brown’s raid, one would be stupid not to come to deeply held conclusions about this. I spent half of yesterday in pursuit of this very objective when I could have been swimming in the eventually warming waters. There is nothing remotely ill-gotten about four decades of pensions savings. But as a non-resident, I no longer consider that it is the business of HMRC to have automatic access to what I am doing with it.

            I saved it when others were pissing their money up against the wall, people who are now living off state handouts. I paid my taxes for all those years. They rewarded me with robbing my pensions from the tax-relief which all types of government had previously supported. If you want proof of breach of contract, here it is in one cynical act. Rousseau’s Social Contract was terminated at this very point by the Maximum Imbecile, the Son of the Fucking Manse! I am no longer bound by it. The government can go and fuck right off as far as I’m concerned.

            Yet we find that banking privacy is being busted open now worldwide under the pretence of prevention of money laundering and terrorism. I have never been involved in either, never will be no matter what circumstances arise, yet their trawl will turn me up whilst totally missing the supposed targets.

            As citizens of our bloc, we simply suffer from different types of essentially the same level of repression as the other blocs. It is represented by this identical attitude:

            “You don’t control your own life and possessions, WE DO!”

            I am not American. But is I were, I would have to declare to the USA government my whole wordwide earnings, even if I had emigrated!

            If that is not the same Imperialism they despised in the British Empire, I don’t know what is.

      At least Guido has not gone to the lengths of the Daily Mail where, all of a sudden, the “likes” can leap in number by 3,000 or more. That has been noticed by a number of posters there and can only be attributed to divine intervention. It must be about five years since I bothered to post there. Eight, or more, for the Times which really has died completely.

          I think that the Tories are absolutely marvellous and that UKIP are a load of dirty rotten swine who are pandering to the lowest common denominator and are quite disgustingly heterosexual to the point of causing gross offence.

          Only one person can wank walk through the front door of number ten and that is David Cameron, the heir to … (Oh fuck! Who was it?) Never mind. Michael Gove, Theresa May, Boris Has.

      Sorry buddy but for the past 20 years (and maybe more) ‘journalism’ isn’t journalism either. All media outlets are merely opinion outlets. All the main newspapers, the BBC, SKY. You know exactly what slant or how they’ll approach any particular story. Suppress it/promote it/it’s Fatcha’s fault/it’s the bank’s fault/how will this affect house pr*ic*es/La*d*y Di mu*rd*er*ed etc etc. There are no fucking journalists. If there ever were.

        @140 spot on. Watch the BBC, Sky or C4 news and you basically get the same stories with the same sound bites, they even use the same interviews, all to push the same lies.

        Nothing has been mentioned about the doubts over all the alleged use of chemical weapons. The UN reports are totally inconclusive, yet the entire British media pushed the lies of the government to force us into another war.

        The print press are even bigger cuunts, just full of paid stooges to print shite, wanker like Con Coughlin, Max Hastings and Dan Hodges.

    “what politicians fear the most:”
    Is it constituents who question a politician’s narrative? The dilemma being that to counter extremism, a freedom to expose dichotomies in such constructs is vital. Yet this same elementary process, also possesses the potential to highlight glaring contradictions in their own unquestioned ideological inventions. Take today’s George Galloway Sputnik programme condemnation of the West’s tardiness, in coming to the assistance of beleaguered Soviets in WW2. Now tell us all about the pact those same Soviets had made with the Nazis, previous to said attack, George.
