As someone whose views can be interpreted as to the left or right of the spectrum depending on the issue I do find the use of the word extremist funny. After all on the left most people called extremists would be centrists to some of my friends. Also since when to anyone but a Septic did universal education, water and health care become extreme anyway? Continue reading “The Extreme Middle”
The continuing ability of the BBC to waste money on garbage at the expense of the poorest workers came again with amazingly after the last series of 3 descended into poo another series of Sherlock. The series opener showed why Brits are so poor at drama. Ok write the 3rd series off kill off the hitman wife of Watson 5 minutes in. But no like ‘leftists’ [relative] pretending there is an epidemic of ‘hate’ crime and surfeit of their own virtue they doubled down and added a baby. They spent the whole of the episode writing out the entire mistake of the 3 rd series and the baby is still alive. Continue reading “Complete Shit, Sherlock”
It struck me before President Trump has done a thing the ‘Liberals’ in the States have lost their shit and thrown lots of stuff at someone inaugurated often for stuff Obama has done too and Mrs Clinton would have done – exclude Mexicans, deport 3 million, appoint his own judges, appoint clowns from Goldman Sachs etc. Reality is best case is his economics works better for ordinary people but personally sounds like a new Labour redux with seemingly positive policies reduced to ashes later on by the need to supply financiers with a rentier income see NHS. Yep Trump is considering Public Private Partnerships with Govt backed bonds when Govt can borrow at below 2%! Continue reading “Losing Your Shit And Perspective”
I note that establishments are talking about banning fake news so no British newspaper would be allowed? They [central banks] also want to ban cash. People miss that none of this will improve economic performance, quite the opposite with cash ban, but you only need 25% to control most democracies. UK TV is already essentially under Govt control by Offcom – stations are not allowed to say when they are censored either. You will also note as per snoopers charter this as much as one can tell with Labour is supported by both main parties.
Left squabbling over who is racist and pronouns is rather funny in this context. In the sense of funny but not funny a bit like Mr Corbyn and McDonnell really.
The point is that with money now ‘printed’ for our rulers and media under control in UK they don’t need a thriving economy just control. Indeed Putin would seem the ideal for the West’s rulers?
How can anyone support Mark ‘Chauncey’ Carney a bubble blowing dickhead. Or Mrs Clinton a corrupt lying neo Con who is wrong about almost everything and as big a minion of the Sauds as you can get. Or the EU that undemocratic neo Liberal festering scab on the world fresh from killing 1000s of Greeks and condemning many of the rest to unending poverty? Continue reading “The World of Binary”
The current Sky revelations on Bradley Wiggins show him up as being less than honest about his past. Yet they also reflect the common failings of those who claim to be holier than though and in many ways cut through the British schtick of fair play and gentlemanly conduct.
The journalist and determined anti influencer Paul Kimmage had already shown in an interview with Chris Froome last year that athletes were not so much anti doping as anti those who gained an advantage by going beyond the arbitrary line or rules as some call them. As said Sharapova doped her whole career yet she only became a dope cheat for 18 days and probably inadvertently. Are all sporting asthmatics dopers? Continue reading “TUE TUE Gum Drops”
As is clear I hope I don’t rate either side of the Labour divide. However the depth of Corbyn’s incompetence is not the messy commons performances or the middling at best poll numbers or his supporters nuttery or his refusal to go when he clearly cannot lead the PLP.
It’s this. John McDonnell has sought out the best mainstream but leftish economics advice available. Corbyn hired Seamus Milne as his main advisor.
