I’ve made the point before that western lifestyles may have changed but that to say we are richer when we cannot live the lifestyle I aspired to at 18 and might be dead by now if I had but that’s not the point. Is this world of so called Liberalism and slow decline of living standards one we can easily leave behind? Not just the EU but the whole lot IMF World Bank and even tantrum led USA.
Would initial devalued currency etc be fatal if we stepped off the liberalism and free trade agreements nonsense – where Govts pick winners like Socialists by favouring certain industries over others? Continue reading “Hotel California”
My question to all the economists and Govts last 30 years if you claim liberalism, globalisation, EU have benefited us why can’t we afford health, education, pensions, benefits, weekly garbage collection, social care etc. now? Continue reading “Don’t Vote Fascist: Vote Poverty”
I had a call from my accountant the other day apparently I could buy £300 of intimate meals, all my meals during the week and £300 of gift vouchers tax free, and am not. I also on 5th April become a Bronze card holder for British Airways. I am a racehorse owner without a mortgage or rent. Yes for someone who averages £25 grand a year for 15 years I am truly wealthy. Quite how a family of 4 survive with rent to pay on that is a question. Continue reading “Money for Nothing & Your Drinks For Free”
Tony Blair the former front person for a vile Govt came forward to make clear it is in our interests to resist the current drift to leaving the EU in the easiest way for the idiot Theresa May and certainly the way with the most problematic unpredictable outcome for the rest of us.

Apparently it’s not just that BrExit voters dying off that may alter the set course of the referendum. In surveys 90% say they would not want to lose a 100 a month in a BrExit. Now of course no one knows what we will lose or gain and many of us skeptical of mainstream economics and Govt subsidy of globalisation will demure on costs. However mainstream economics suggests losses and indeed in dollar terms anyone on above 20 grand a year is already out of pocket circa £1500 so too late! Continue reading “BrExit Buyer’s Remorse”
Maybe the negative projections on poor income will come true and maybe there is a huge negative from BrExit. However to the poor it will be nothing like the cuts in benefits (in and out of work) nor their loss of health care that is coming from first New Labour policy and latterly Coalition and Conservative Govt – effectively a continuum backed but the #fakenews of all national newspapers. Indeed the currency fall they will have noticed on any foreign holidays since Brown/Balls/Darling deliberately trashed the currency – no one seemed to mind a 30+% fall then. To worry about living standards when you sucked them dry to feed a financial vampire and asset prices of the middle/upper class houses is vacuous.
