Neo Libs final admit they are into Liberalism – the illiberal running of society on a specious belief in absurdly labeled ‘free’ markets. They’re very good at claiming reductions in poverty that are nothing to do with their policies and changing of criteria to pretend that’s true. Continue reading “neo Liberalism: It Runs Deep”
As Theresa May [sic] hypocrited herself using anti Brexit arguments against the Scottish attempt to pour boiling water on its head much as the UK or England and Wales at least had done I was struck by the easy ride Nicola Sturgeon gets. Her main critics are the Scottish Tories pointing out her absurdist position, no one else does. Now I am not against Scottish Nationalism but it would make the risk of BrExit look like crossing an empty road without waiting for the lights to change.

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”
From the point of view of a London Metrosexual like myself it’s probably not a viewpoint we even see. However many people are not interested in what happens beyond their parish. They don’t see the need for Globalised supply chains and EU or IMF. In many ways they’re not even tribal.
I’ve tried to tread the BrExit line on the grounds of removing EU and settling for EEA but this clearly is not on offer or would have to be imposed on the fruit loops and bigots who are the Leave Campaign post a Leave vote. The Leave campaign is a small cabal of rightists and immigrant haters every bit as elite as the Bullingdon Club. They would claim foul and the dead Labour party vote could in large measure in the North go straight to UKIP as it may anyway. People outside the asset bubble or London income already feel put upon and they are willing to believe the worst. Indeed the EU issue splits on age 50 and up and C2DE social groups Leave majorities. I would love to ram it down the ignorant self serving politicians and ABs as they support a Housing Boom economy [Wealth Illusion] with a massive trade deficit and think that’s actually working.

It’s easy to make a case the London area is over crowded and the infrastructure creaking. That house prices are largely a function of migrant demand*. That the UK out of the EU could somehow reduce this. My question can we reduce immigration and at what cost? No one answers that not even Farage or Grayling. No one dares propose how we can contain immigration. Sure Controlling our Borders euphemism but scratch Nigel Farage deeper and it’s not what he is promising. Indeed his points/skills based plan is basically more bureaucracy and longer airport queues to little no effect but some cost. Continue reading “Controlling Immigration! Er?”
If you want change the best way to achieve it is to do it incrementally and as nonthreatening as possible. Hence the Leave campaigns have a higher burden of proof than Remain and they have failed. Sure the Remain campaign is largely an ad hom one with zero reasons to remain bar the obfuscation of faux consequence on GDP of leave assuming we cut trade after Leave – from people [HM Treasury] who if you do believe most economists have cost the UK far more in the last 6 years in terms of GDP. The Logic of which to me is there is no reason to Remain unless there are dire consequences and yes 6% of GDP would be dire enough if it came to pass or was even likely to.
