Benefit System Needed Reform
by John De Roe

Iain Duncan Smith's proposals for reform of the benefit system is long overdue. The system has been crazy for several decades, remember the Boswells, the scrounging family of scouse scallies in the TV series bread? They were comedy characters but not that far removed from reality.

In some areas, thanks to the decline of the industrial base and a lack of foresight on the part of politicians and their advisers there are now third generation jobless who, knowing how to work the system, are living quite comfortably on benefits.

An article in today's Daily Telegraph,Outmoded Benefits System Needed Reform tackles the dreaded subject of welfare reform and reminds us of what Mark Twain is supposed to have said about the weather. Everyone talks about it; nobody does anything about it. And for a good reason. Radical plans that look good on paper fall apart once civil servants start doing the sums; even slight tweaks to the system create a political backlash, so politicians shrink from real reforms and take refuge in window dressing.

Human beings have a need for meaningful work however. While it might serve the agenda of corporate profits to replace workers with machines the process does neither communities nor individuals any favours.

The Oil Disappears From The Gulf
by Ed Butt

It was America's greastest eco - disaster ever. So where has all that spilled oil gone asks The Rational Optimist The Oil Disappears From The Gulf

Accrording to the Panic Merchant In Chief, Barack Hussein Obama, the oil spill that followed the blow out on BP's Deepwater Horizon rig was America's greatest ecological disaster ever. As usual Obama was ill informed and wrong. The spill was not the biggest the world's oceans have ever known, not even the biggest in the Gulf Of Mexico (see our link below) Not a trace of the 1979 oil spill now remains and nobody remembers it.

Americans, particularly those who supported Obama just love mass hysteria so it was inevitable the spill would be inflated into an outbreak of fear and panic. Ironically the Obama supporters who prided themselves on being rational and not prone to the idiocies embraced by the religious right have shown they were actually loopier. The just needed a messiah to follow who ticked all the politically correct boxes.

With Obama to lead them they have panicked about global warming, succumbed to swine flu hysteria and not quaked in fear of Oilmageddon as the panicmonger - in chief whipped up the frenzy.

Xavier Connolly in this website predicted weeks ago, long before the well was capped, that micro organisms would take care of the oil.


28 July 2010 Obama Blames BP For Lockerbie
by Ian R Thorpe

We often used to ask during the Presidencies of George W Bush and Bill Clinton, "Just who do the bloody Americans think they are." It was translated into many languages around the world as representatives of the USA tried to ride roughshod over diplomatic protocols.

Many deluded people thought things might change when Obama assumed power but now as we watch this vain, vacuous man strutting around the globe with all the pomp and swagger of an African village tyrant it is becoming clear those of us who warned things would be worse rather than better under Obama were right.

That Obama hates the British was always self evident, from the racist lies he wrote in his fantasy novel Dreams From My Father to the petulant dismissals of dissenters from the Obama imposed orthodoxy it is clear America has put in The White House a narcissistic solipsist who has no difficulty convincing himself he is President Of The World.

That he does indeed believe such a thing has been demonstrated in his handling of BP and the Gulf of Mexico oil well disaster. As well as displaying a woeful lack of leadership Obama has sought throughout the crisis to make political capital from it by demonising the British. When this failed he then sought to implicate BP in the release of the Lockerbie Bomber Abdelbaset al-Megrahi. In response to a completely unsupported allegation that BP had lobbied the British government to push for the release of Al Megrahi to help the company secure lucrative oil deals with Libya.

In an attempt to spark a diplomatic incident the Obama administration then appointed a Senate committee to look into the allegation. Despite it being quite clear the Obama White House had been closely ...

Today’s release on manufacturing activity by the Richmond Fed is pretty ghastly, as you would expect given that the effects of fiscal stimulus are now wearing off at accelerating pace – before the happy handover to the private sector is safely consummated – and given that the structural East-West imbalances that lay behind the global…

Did Obama OK The Release Of The Lockerbie Bomber
by John De Roe

The Daily Stirrer has commented many times on the racist nature of the Obama administration and the detestation of "white" people in general and the British in particular that President Barack Hussein Obama can barely be bothered to conceal. No matter we say, Britain benefits little from the so called "special relationship", the myth of which has been perpetuated by recent Labour Prime Ministers in order to justify their sycophancy towards The White House that has allowed them to pretend they were major players on the world stage.

It is of no matter that the USA does not regard its relationship with Britain as of any great importance. American interests lie in other directions and so do Britain's. In fact the perpetual sucking up of Blair and Brown to The White House was a national embarrassment. That said, it is good to be on friendly terms diplomatically with the USA, we may be as someone famously said "two nations divided by a single language" but we still have a lot in common with American people even if our cultures have diverged.

The Obama Presidency however has given our government very good reasons to distance itself from America. To of the list is the President's dislike of Britain and the British that has led to him telling blatant and ridiculous lies about his Kenyan connections in order to make Brain look bad. Then there have been the calculated insults to Gordon Brown, the cringeworthy episode in which the Obama's took their ghetto manners to Buckingham Palace and behaved as if they were the hosts and The Queen and Prince Phillip guests.

In recent months there has been his behaviour over the role of BP in the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill and now his trying to involve BP in the controversy surrounding the release of the Lockerbie bomber.

We British then have no reason at all to continue subscribing to the deification of Obama because of his colour. The man does not like our country so we are justified in kicking him hard and often, even kicking him when he is down.So let's start putting the boot in now.

Obama's faux outrage about the release of Abdelbaset al-Megrahi by the Scottish administration is hypocritical in the extreme. The Daily Stirrer commented at the time of the release that it would never have gone ahead without the approval of The White House. Thus the summoning of former UK Justice Minister Jack Straw and Scottish Justice Minister Kenny MacKaskill to Washington where they would be required to give evidence before the US Senate is not only a breach of diplomatic protocol, it is also a chap stunt, a piece of political showboating from a politician who has found his celebrity lifestyle is not enough to save his failing Presidency.

Take a look at what top left wing boadsheet and long time supporters of Obama, The Guardian reported on the matter of a letter sent to Scottish ministers by a senior diplomat at the US embassy in London last August, eight days before Abdelbaset al-Megrahi was released from prison because he was dying from inoperable prostate cancer:

Obama's administration has refused to allow publication of the letter, in which the US says allowing Megrahi to live at home in Scotland would be "far preferable" to sending him back to Libya under the prisoner transfer deal brokered by former prime minister Tony Blair in 2007. Although Megrahi was allowed to go home to die in Tripoli, Scottish officials believe this undermines Obama's vigorous criticisms of the decision to free Megrahi earlier this month, when he said he was left "surprised, disappointed and angry" by the Libyan's release. FULL story here

The right leaning Daily Telegraph comments:

The Lockerbie scandal has just become even murkier. According to a Sunday Times report yesterday “the US government secretly advised Scottish ministers that it would be “far preferable” to free the Lockerbie bomber than jail him in Libya.” The newspaper obtained a leaked document which reveals that Richard LeBaron, deputy head of the US embassy in London, had written to Alex Salmond, Scottish First Minister, ahead of the release of the Lockerbie bomber. The correspondence indicates that the Obama administration’s opposition to the “compassionate” release of the Lockerbie bomber may not have been as clear-cut as it has subsequently claimed. FULL story

The Sunday Times is now behind a paywall so we cannot link to the original. All we can say is it is a leaked document and has not yet been acknowledged by the US government as authentic. If there is nothing to hide however, nothing in the contents that would reveal President Obama as a posturing hypocrite there is unlikely to be anything that would threaten the security of either nation. If there is nothing to hide there is no reason for The White House withhold publication.

So Obama is blocking release of the documents, we must assume, because the contents would embarrass him. Well he has a track record for blocking access to document that should be in the public domain so nothing unexpected there. Bear in mind that the said letter, the full text of which has now been leaked to the Sunday Times, was written in August 2009, months after Obama had assumed the Presidency. So he cannot play his usual get out of jail card by blaming George W Bush.

Britain enjoys special relationships with Canada, Australia and India, a nation David Cameron visits this week. Our coalition government would do well to build on those ties, particularly in our dealings with India, a rapidly emerging economic, industrial and technological power. We can safely cut Obama adrift, if it sours future relations with America that will only impact on the ability of future Labour Prime Ministers to delude themselves they are world statesmen. By the time Obie leave office in 2012 however he will be so unpopular we will be able to pick up with his successor the international relations we enjoyed with the Bush, Clinton and Reagan administrations.

Can Humanity Deal With The Worst Disasters Without Scientists? Urrrrrrm...
by Ed Butt

Those strange people who like to style themselves "scientists" are a tad upset at the way their elaborately constructed climate change scam which they were so sure would help their tribe achieve world domination has collapsed under objective scrutiny.

We have to give credit where credit is due however and the scientists deserve credit for persistence if nothing else. Having endured similar hmiliations with the failure of the swine flu scam, the mad cow disease scam, the AIDS scam, the oil is running out scam, the water shortage scam, the ozone layer scam and a hot of others they are still pushing their fear and panic line "catastrophe is imminent, only the scientists can save the world" line.

In Is Humanity Prepared For The Worst
Science writer ian Sample considers how scientists might prepare humanity to face the challenges the future will present us with. The catastrophe's he lines up are climate change, crop failures due to over - intensive farming, designer killer viruses, disastrous but unforseen consequences of attempts to reverse climate change by geo - engineering and oceanic pollution by algae due to nutrient rich chemical outflows from rivers, sewers, industrial plants etc. And again the line is we must give the scientists all the money and expensive toys they demand because only science can save us from such problems.

As most of these catastrophes are likely to be created by the consequences of ill though-out scientific research perhaps we should prepare by killing all scientists. It will be much cheaper and safer than trusting them.

Selection By Stealth or Sound Common Sense
by Xavier Connolly

The Education Minister in the coalition government Michael Gove was accused yesterday of introducing a policy that will allow schools to select pupils A leaked government document questioned the future of the admissions code that stops schools favouring children they believe are more likely to produce better results.

Oh horror of horrors. Selecting pupils? That will only lead to the destruction of comprehensive education, the production line education system created by Labour and their politically correct left wing apparatchiks in the academic environment with the sole aim of churning out streams of identical, unthinking, state dependent Labour voters.

What the fuck is wrong with selection. In schools now, and I am a lecturer in a local college so I'm qualified to comment, we have a culture of anti intellectualism. The pupils who want to learn, who are bookish, quiet, introverted, sensitive, ginger haired, in any way different tend to have a miserable time. The yobs rule and the staff pander to them for the sake of a quiet life.

What was wrong with the old Grammar Schools when the intelligent, the top fifteen or twenty percent were segregated and encouraged to perform according to their ability. Did such an education do either myself, John or Ian any harm? More to the point did it do our friends any harm to attend a "Secondary Modern." Many of them went on to do well in life, some did not do so well but the same can be said of our old classmates.

One former colleague of mine, Ollie Chadwick was always one of the brightest boys in our year. He did not go to University, many pupils leaving grammar school with A levels in the 1960s did not. I don't know what went wrong for Ollie but he died a few years ago, just turned sixty, a shambling wreck, an alcoholic and compulsive gambler who, at the end of an afternoon in the bookies was always trying to beg a pound so he could by a loaf of bread and eat toast.

A boy who lived a short walk from where I grew up but in the council houses, is a millionaire now. He did not go to grammar school being of a more practical mindset. The phrase "good with hands" would have featured on his school reports. He was not bad at business either and is a millionaire now with a second hand car showroom and a solid engineering firm that specialises in making engine parts for classic cars. He served a technical apprenticeship in the aircraft industry but the skills he gained there and the academic knowledge gained through day release and night school equipped him to combine his love of cars with his skills as an engineer.

I know a young man, our webmaster Ian knows him much better having watched him draw his first breaths. He is a brilliant musician and artist but at school was always a thoughtful, sensitive boy. One of his former teachers, now dead, was an old friend of mine. He told me of that lad, "He has a brilliant brain and is a really gifted artist. If ever there was a boy who should have gone to grammar school it is him. But he struggled to survive in the comprehensive system, he was bullied, attracted more bullying by trying to appeal to the little thugs and then tried to survive by becoming the clown, the dunce. Then in the fourth year he changed.

I know what happened. Ian, his Dad if you had not guesssed, finally got though to him the notion that you have to defend yourself, that if you try to be friendly some peple will always see it as a sign of weakness. And believe me a young man could have no better teacher in self defence than our Ian, intelligent, cultured and rather short though he is. There is no point trying to reason with morons, they only understand violence. By that time however that young man's school career had been ruined.

The price we have paid for the incessant experiments in social engineering in education is so visible in the classes I teach now. So many late developers, people taking Vocational and External Degree courses at the college as they work part time or are supported by a partner, so many of them with good brains, so many, when they can be coaxed into talking, with the same story to tell: "If you were good in school, if you enjoyed lessons and were keen to learn you were the outsider. You had no mates, you were the creep, the weirdo."

So many of them are people who should have gone to the Grammar School or Technical College. To be in an environment where people wrere not queers or homos or mentalists because they liked to read books or would rather sit with a sketchbook or practice a musical instrument than play football or go out with a gang looking for trouble"

So what is so bad about selection. It does not segregate by class or income as the current system does. It reduces segregation, promotes social mobility. Pupils are allowed to develop in their own way, at their own pace. Highflyers at school like Ollie do not always develop into successful adults. Others do not reveal their full potential until in their twenties of thirties. We need a system that educates individuals rather than trying to create clones.

Calls to Expand EU? Bollocks.
by Ed Butt

We could go a long way towards reducing our public sector deficit if we simply left the EU, it costs us a fucking fortune. Europhiles will shriek and recoil in horror at the thought of course. Far from bringing under control the EU's runaway spending fans of EU expansion, integration and federalisation would love to bring in to the community more third world countries like Turkey so its enormous population can be subsidised by German, British and French taxpayers.

It gets worse however. Europe is not big enough for some
The ambition of the most fervent fans of the European Union is the Federal European Superstate. For some completely mental twats however even that is not enough, they will not rest until there is one global government.

Read maverick Conservative MEP on the One World Government movement. Honestly, if these people hate who they are and what our civilization stands for that much whuy don't they just kill their fucking selves and let the rest of us get on withouth hand wringing guilt trippers constantly whining about the poor of Turkey, Africa, India etc. Do you ever hear of rich Turks, Indians or Africans putting their hands in their pockets to help these poor people?

No, they don't give a flying fuck.

Well we don't have to be that callous but we have our own problems and charity begins at home. Independent nations can run their own affairs quite well without advice from the world domination freaks of the wealthy, educated, elitist left.

Bullying Telephone Debt Collectors
by John De Roe

A little known consequence of the global financial crisis has been that the banks which own many of the major credit card brands, Barclaycard, MBNA, Goldfish, have bundled up bad debt and sold it on for about 10p in the pound to some pretty unpleasant people who are now contracting telephone bullies to recover as much asd they can. As the thuigs who run the debt collection services are paid on commission they have a huge incentive to screw as much as they can out of you by methods including, but not limited to, intimidation and threats of bankruptcy, loss of home, trashing your credit rating with Experian, Equifax etc. whose state sanctioned records are ‘supervised’ by the Information Commissioners Office (in the UK).

Experian and Equifax run a system that effectively has by passed the legal system. To use a colloquialism they are a law unto themselves. The Debtor company decides you are guilty on the say so of one of their ‘members’ and that is you screwed for credit or finance for the next five years or until the default notice disappears off your record.

It is not a case of you are innocent until proved guilty, you are guilty until you can prove that you do not owe these characters any money. And even if you prove you owe them nothing, whether they will clean your credit record is touch and go. People who carry out such admin tasks cannot be employed on commission only as can the bullies who tell you Lefty and the Boys will be round if you don't pay.

If you are unfortunate enough to be targeted by one of these ‘debt recovery companies’ here's how to handle it. Do not get into any telephone discussion with them. Keep everything in writing. Ask for a copy of the Credit Agreement you have allegedly signed with them, or if they say they have bought the debt ask for a copy of the assignment document. Invariably they will not be able to produce such a document, because they rely on intimidation tactics to divert attention away from the due process of Law which they are trying to circumvent.

Now we must add a caveat, if you take out credit particularly now when the mainstream banks are reluctant to lend, you should think very carefully about it and whether you can really afford to service the debt. When indebted to a licenced bank or credit company if your circumstances change you should be able to rely on the Law to protect you losing everything. There is nothing to stop respectable(ish) finance companies from selling debts however, in fact despite all the politicians' promises to tighten regulations there is still absolutely nothing to stop a bank selling your debt to the kind of chancers and scumbags who seek to make a quick out of people’s misery and humiliation.

There are a few market leaders out there that take the biscuit, remember the ‘Party of The People’, those progressive lefties of New Labour were proposing to give ‘bailiff’ companies the right to break into your home? A far cry from the 1920’s when political activists in the Communist and Labour Parties banded together to prevent evictions. Now we have to rely on consumer protection lawsUsually a swift letter to the company concerned citing The Prevention of Harassment Act 1997 sec 2 usually does the trick.
(This is for UK readers of The Daily Stirrer only local laws apply in different nations)

To terminate a telephone call from an aggressive debt collector:

Tell them you are recording the conversation for the purposes of training

or

If they are telephoning from India, tell them that what they are doing is illegal, you want their name and department and that you will be contacting the Police when you have finished the call.

And remember, these thugs hate to do business in writing. Force them, document everything, make a note of times of calls (telephone companies can trace call information for you and from calling line identification date pinpoint the source of a call) write a brief memo of what is said or, if you possibly can record the call.

EU Federalisation By Stealth
by Ed Butt

Conservative MEP Daniel Hannan asked in his blog recently "What constitutes a state?"

The accepted definition in International Law is in the opening paragraph of the 1933 Montevideo Convention on the Rights and Duties of States:

"The state as a person of international law should possess the following qualifications: (a) a permanent population; (b) a defined territory; (c) government; and (d) capacity to enter into relations with the other states."

The European Union whose member states' voters overwhelmingly reject the notion of a single European superstate already has a permanent population and well defined territorial boundaries. It also has a government of sorts, the tyrannical bureaucrats of Brussels and the toothless parliament in Stasbourg could not be considered anything else. Now the EU has closed down item (d) too . The European Constitution Lisbon Treaty, which came into effect on 1 December 2009, gave the EU “legal personality”: that is, the right to sign treaties as a single entity. Under the Lisbon agreement the acts of the EU government supersede those laws passed by the elected representatives of member states. Now, we hear, the EU has been formally recognised by the United Nations. It has a single foreign policy from which member states cannot opt out even though the central authority may be riding roughshod over the national interests of individual member states in pursuit of the interests of the bureaucratic dictatorship. Put all thse things together and they add up to “capacity to enter into relations with other states”.

So there you have it. After being rejected by the voters of those nations that were allowed to vote, France and The Netherlands, the single European supertstate has been brough into being by stealth in what must be the greatest act of political mendacity and deception ever.

British Troops Will Leave Afghanistan by 2014 Says Defence Minister
by Ed Butt

"About bloody time" you might think as you read the headline. This pointless war has dragged on for 9 years now and has cost more than enough in British lives.

A document leaked to The Independent On Sunday reportedly states the withdrawal of NATO troops is to begin within months.

The document states, allegedly: "The international community expressed its support for the President of Afghanistan's objective that the Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF) should lead and conduct military operations in all provinces by the end of 2014."

It goes on to pledge that the international community will continue to "provide the support necessary to increase security during this time, and the continued support in training, equipping and providing interim financing to the ANSF at every level to take on the task of securing their country".

There could be another aspect to this policy leak besides demonstrating the coalition government's reluctance to keep pouring money into the fiery pit of this unwinnable war. While the official line on the US / UK Special relationship is that David Cameron and Barack Obama have a good working relationship the signs that Cameron does not rate Obama as a political equal are becoming blatantly obvious.

This latest move then could be a way of letting Obama know British support is not guaranteed.

The Independent's story comes after Foreign Secretary William Hague hinted that British regiments would be leaving Afghanistan by 2014 although Mr. Hague stated clearly the government was not "setting a timetable for what happens over the next few years".

The timing of the leak could be an attempt to put down a marker for the International Conference on Afghanistan next Tuesday (20 July, 2010) at which US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and foreign ministers from more than 70 countries will discuss future strategy for the failed middle eastern state. With violence escalationg in Iraq again despite a continuing but low key American military presence this news is another blow for the beleagued Obama administration

Prime Minister David Cameron has previously vowed to have troops out by 2015. It looks at though he meant it. With casualties rising however and the war looking increasingly futile and unwinnable and the urgency of the financial situation it is had to see what realistic alternative was open to the government.

Did BP Lobby For Lockerbie Bomber's Release
by John De Roe

By now we should all know that anybody who supports the politics of the "progressive left" in either the UK's Labour Party or any of its other manifestations is insane, not just clinically insane but totally stark raving, banging their head on the wall, chewing the carpet, rubbing shit in their hair and eating gravel for breakfast bonkers.

The latest measure of politically correct socialist insanity has come via the accusation that oil giant BP lobbied Gordon Brown's government for the release of the Lockerbie Bomber Abdelbaset Ali Mohmet al-Megrahi. We hope this is a total fabrication because BP, already in trouble for the Deepwater Horizon oil rig's exploding and millions of gallons of crude oil leaking into the Gulf of Mexico from the uncapped well, may not be able to withstand a new crisis.

To try to distance the British government and in particular the coalition from the accusation Sir Nigel Sheinwald, the British Ambassador to Washington has called the release of Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset Ali Mohmet al-Megrahi a “mistake”, in what can only be seen as an attempt by the Coalition Government to disown the aberrations of the Labour / Scottish Nationalist administration in Scotland.

Kenny MacAskill, the fruitcake who serves in the Scottish administration as Justice Secretary, is the champion of criminals rather than of victims. On assuming office he told the Scottish Police Federation conference the principle that the justice ministry and the police existed to protect the public from lawless elements was an anachronism. His perception of the role of justice was to ensure the police were be recruited from a diversity of ethnic and sexual backgrounds.

Under MacAskill's "progressive" regime the prison gates have been opened; recently he announced a plan to abolish all jail sentences of less than six months but was was frustrated by the Scottish parliament which settled for a compromise three months. Naturally when he found the fate of the world’s most notorious prisoner, the only surviving Lockerbie bomber, rested in his hands, the outcome was a foregone conclusion. By freeing a man convicted of 270 murders he would pave the way for placing the "human rights" of all criminals ahead of the rights of law abiding citizens to live peacefully and unmolested.

To be fair to the Labour government they had negotiated a low key Prisoner Transfer with Libya. Instead MacKaskill who is so righteous a paternalistic authoritarian he knows political correctness must not only be done but must be seen to be done, opted for a photo opportunity rich “compassionate release”, in view of the prognosis that Megrahi had less than three months to live. A whole year later and Abdelbaset is emphatically still with us even though he will not be entering any charity walks any time soon. How the families of Lockerbie victims feel about this can only be imagined, but in a politically correct justice system victims rights have never amounted to much against the "rights" of perpetrators and the self righteousness of those who dispense political correctness.

BP’s role in pressing for a decision on the prisoner transfer agreement with Libya, to facilitate its acquiring oil exploration rights from the Gaddafi regime, has now become common knowledge at the very worst possible time for the company. Barack Obama is fighting to reassert himself after a disastrous eighteen months since taking office, BP temporary capping of the Gulf of Mexico oil leak is not good news for Obama because while it has, temporarily at least, stopped oil flowing into the waters of the Gulf it was achieved in spite of rather than with the support of the Obama administration.

A number of Democrat senators are demanding an investigation into whether BP played any part in the release of Megrahi. If any evidence to that effect surfaces, BP is toast. The Obama administration will take it out with the help of a predatory-looking Exxon and the vultures of Wall Street. That would make Obama look strong again, provide distraction from his other failures and it would do a lot towards restoring America's pre - eminence in the oil trade.

Maybe it is time for the English, Welsh and Northern Irish to decide if we want devolution from Scotland.

More Graduates, Less Graduate Jobs
by Xavier Connolly

Vionce Cable the coalition government's minister responsible for business and higher education has kicked off the biggest shake up in University financing in the past four decades. Since the vast and rapid expansion of higher education begun bt the Wilson government in the 1960 there has been constant growth in University funding, the number of University places available and the amount of government money flowing into Universities.

Eventually, inevitably (stimulus spending supporters please note) the University system became too expensive for the state to support it. Tony Blair's Labour government, while blethering about everybody having the right to a University education introduced tuition fees and student loans to that instead of the state paying for most student's education, the students left University saddled with a hige dept that would blight their lives and careers. At the same time more and more school leavers were being steered towards a University education but due to the depletion of the manufacturing base there were fewer and fewer suitable jobs.

All the while Labour were in power they kept muttering about the knowledge economy as if simply having attained a University degree was a marketable asset. In reality were were spending fortunes on educating people to be call centre clerks, shelf fillers and burger flippers.

Somehow the crazy situation had to be addressed. In an economy forced to face the reality that perpetual and perpetually accelerating economic growth is impossibe we had to face the reality that churning out ever greater numbers of graphic designers, journalists, art historians, sociologists and music teachers was futile when we already had a surplus of that type of qualified person but were importing plumbers, mechanics, electricians, joiners, bricklayers and engineering operatives from eastern Europe.

We had gone beyond saturation point for graduates.

That would have been quite an easy problem but the more pressing business of reducing the unsustainable public sector deficit creaed by Labour's insane spending and loonytoons economic policies put a different complexion on it. So what will Cable do?

Comparing the existing system of tuition fees to a "poll tax" that graduates paid regardless of their income, the skills secretary argued it was fairer for people to pay according to their earning power. He said: "It surely can't be right that a teacher or care worker or research scientist is expected to pay the same graduate contribution as a top commercial lawyer or surgeon or City analyst whose graduate premium is so much bigger."

Graduates earned on average Ł100,000 more than non-graduates in their life-time, Cable said, and there are significant premiums for degrees such as medicine.

Cable asked Lord Browne, the former CEO of BP who was conducting a review of student finance, to look at a variable graduate tax tied to earnings. Low earners may end up paying less than they currently do for their degrees while those with high incomes pay more.

The graduate tax would replace the current system, under which the government lends money to students to cover the cost of their degree courses and graduates pay this back once they start earning more than Ł15,000.

Phasing out tuition fees is a crucial part of Liberal Democrat education policy. Any moves by the coalition to raise fees – or even keep the status quo – could prove divisive. Lib Dem MPs will be allowed to abstain from any vote on fees under the coalition agreement.

The Minister warned the Labour government's target of extending higher education to 50% of the population was unrealistic and likely to be scrapped. Figures from the university admissions service, Ucas, revealed the pressure on university places: universities have received more than 660,000 applications and a record number of students likely to be denied a place this autumn.

Cable told an audience of vice- chancellors at South Bank University in London: "What we have is an urgent problem. Universities are going to have to ask how they can do more for less. There will probably be less public funding per student … quite possibly fewer students coming straight from school to do three-year degrees." Universities had to be prepared for a period of contraction. "Britain is a poorer country than two years ago and future spending had to be adjusted accordingly."

Cable's proposals mark a departure from the current sytem of University funding and the biggest change to the university system since the early 1990s, when at least 40 polytechnics became universities and higher education was expanded.

Weight Watchers On The NHS - So What's Wrong With Homeopathy?
by Xavier Connolly

I read today the NHS will in future be required to fund fatties attendance at Weight Watchers clubs.

The Medical Research Council suggests that Weight Watchers courses should be offered on the NHS. And that seems like a good idea. Weight Watchers doesn’t cost much. And if Weight Watchers might work as a longer-term way of addressing of addressing obesity, I think the reason will be that the classes have an educative component.… Read all Weight Watchers On The NHS
Now I would not claim be be an expert on weight loss, a sensible diet and long walks have always kept me in fairly good shape, but I do know none of my wife's friends who ever enrolled at Weight Watchers kept the weight off once they had left. Which means Weight Watcher have found the perfect profit making machine, everyone becomes a customer for life or for as long as they are prepared to be ripped off every week. And I suspect many people will be happy to be ripped off every week forever if the NHS are picking up the tab.

Medical science spokespeople have welcomed this development however.

Makes one wonder why they get so het up about homeopathy. Nobody I know has ever told me weight watchers worked for them and if anybody did I'd know they were lying. One or two people of my acquaintance (yes I do know some tree huggers) swear homeopathy has worked for them and while I have no reason to believe it I have no reason to doubt them either.

Climate Science Debunked By Science Superstar Max Planck.

by Ian R Thorpe

One of the lies most often repeated by the Climate Science lobby is that 'the science stands' i.e. that no fault was found in the scientific work of the CRU. This is both true and a lie, true in that no fault was found, a lie because the reason no fault was found is that to examine the scientific work was outside the Russell panel's terms of reference. This report features the Max Planck Institute's take on climate science and the IPCC.

Climate Change: Thoughts On The Russell Report
by Ian R Thorpe

There has been a lot of exitement among the science community over the Russell report on the Climategate Scandal this week. We expected as much, the science community or Church of Scienceology as those of us inclined to sarcasm like to call them are a shaalow, excitable lot who are apt to lose control of their emotions at the slightest provocation. Rational thinking and controlled, objective analysis is not their forte.

Let's look at a few claims made by the Science zealots:

First; the report "exonerated" the scientists involved with the East Anglia University Climate Research Unit (CRU).

This is not true, it is a complete misrepresentation of what the report avctually says:

We note that much of the challenge to CRU‘s work has not always followed the conventional scientific method of checking and seeking to falsify conclusions or offering alternative hypotheses for peer review and publication. We believe this is necessary if science is to move on, and we hope that all those involved on all sides of the climate science debate will adopt this approach.

So they did not find the "science" flawless, they found the bits of the "science" the panel's terms of reference required them to look at did not reaveal anyevidence of dishonest. But as we all know absence of evidence is not evidence of absence and if the report did not look at everything their conclusion whist true is not an aquittal.

Here is a quote from the responsible minister in the UK Parliament when presenting the report to the House:

Muir Russell's independent review is not looking at the science it is looking at allegations about malpractice. As for the science itself, I have not actually seen any evidence of any flaw in the science but I am hoping, later this week, to announce the chair of a panel to reassess the science and make sure there is nothing wrong.

So they are going to be loking at the methodology again, this time without the work being subjected to the relentless scrutiny of the British media and blogosphere. Here's the bit on the fabrication allegation. Remember - the allegation is that Professor Phil Jones, who resigned due to allegations of scientific skulduggery and was hurredly reinstated following a dubious claim that the report had "exonerated" him, inserted a groundless statement that McKitrick's findings were "statistically insignificant". Here's what Jones said in his evidence to Russell:
The basis for this statement is that if the CRUTEM3 trend is reduced by the factor claimed by MM2004, the land-based record then becomes incompatible with the ocean and the satellite record. MM2004 make no mention of this in their paper. In writing Chapter 3 of AR4 the author team were mindful of this. MM2004‘s analysis of the land surface temperature record is completely at odds with the rest of the surface and lower tropospheric temperature records. MM2004 also fails to take into account the effects of changes in the atmospheric circulation.

And the panel said:
Having read most of the relevant papers... we observe a consistence of view amongst those who disagree with MM2004 that has been sustained over the last 6 years, that the large scale organisation of atmospheric circulation produces a spatially integrated response to forcing. Although we do not comment on the relative merits of the two views, we see no justification of the view that that this response was ?invented, or even that its various expressions in the response to reviewer Gray or the final text are fundamentally different.

Jones appears to have shifted his position from "McKitrick's findings are statistically insignificant" to "McKitrick's findings conflict with other evidence". Whether this is true or not is irrelevant. What matters is that Jones when challenged was unable to provide any support for the claim that was inserted in the IPCC text. This means the allegation of fabrication is uncontestable. What should also demand closer scrutiny is the apparent attempt to hide behind joint authorship - the finger of blame can't be pointed at Jones because lots of people wrote that chapter.

So in examining two very brief findings we learn that the report's terms of reference did not require it to report on the quality of the CRU's work and that in a manner typical of the academic community Jones and his associates were judged by their peers who closed ranks to protect colleagues and friernds.

And on the most serious allegation against Jones, that of e-mails Jones asked colleagues to delete so that their contents were not available to sceptics using the Freedom Of Information act to scrutinixe the work of the CRU, well the inquiry did not get round to asking him about that even though he had previously admitted doing this in an interview with BBC television.

Is anyone surprised this whole exercise was a cover up? No we're not.

The Real Danger To America?
by Ed Butt

I love this quotation.

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president."

"The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.

The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president."

It is alleged to have been translated into English from an article appearing in the Czech Republic as published in the Prager Zeitung of 28 April 2010 but seems to have been in circulation on the web since before that. In reality then we do not know who the author is (I suspect Bill Clinton) but spend time in the coment threads of any US political blogs and it is clear how deeply the man who promised to unite that country has divided it. There is no middle ground, no debate. Supporters of Obama and those in the anti - Obama camp just yell at each other that anyone who does not agree with their world view is an (a) idiot (b) right/left wing nut job (c) a Marxist / fascist.

When the passage featured on a Yahoo forum query titledWhat Is Wrong With Barack Obama it triggered par - for - the - course responses from either side of the political spectrum. The best response, chosen by the moderators came from a commenter using the name Greenman.

Obama appeared upon the national political scene as an extremely liberal senator from Illinois. Although his congressional record is basically empty and his own assessment of his judgment was that he was too busy running for public office to do much of substance in his senate career. He skipped committee meetings and was absent from the senate voting secessions about a fourth of the time; however Obama had his surface appeal to fall back on. Bush was not only disliked due to his awkwardness in communication and the Iraqi war only added to his political burden. In retrospect, any truly fresh face was desirable and perfect to the DNC to be their choice to represent their party. Now with President Bush to blame for all that is wrong, this man was a sure thing in the race to the Whitehouse.

Now this man who has never revealed his credentials, except perhaps to a secret few, and has ridden behind his veil of secrecy into the position of Commander-in-Chief of the world’s most powerful military; this pitiful, annoying pipsqueak of a man who would not make a pimple on a private’s *** has used his position to fire a four-star general for allegedly saying things, the truthfulness of which has not been challenged, but which hurt the feelings of this elitist prince of fools who now holds the catbird seat in our government.

The implosion of the Obama Presidency could be good news for the rest of the world however. While America is obsessed with internicine conflict the other nations can get on with putting right the global economy.

Higher Education Is The Path To Unemployment
by Xavier Connolly

The news that there are seventy applicants for each job vacancy requiring a new graduate from University, though it is indicative of a dire situation in the jobs market, should not be interpreted as meaning there is only one job for each graduate seeking to enter the world of paid employment in a job related to the subject they studied. It will be presented as such but should not be. Even so, when each graduate feels it necessary to send off job applications in industrial quantities knowing that most will not even be read it is quite soul destroying for a young person who has been told a University education is the path to a better career and more fulfilling life.

One of the problems we know face has arisen from the obsession of "progressive" politics with University education. In reality we only need around 15% to 20% of school leavers entering University. That is not to say many more should not go through higher education in some way. A University education is highly focused on academic learning thus it is ideal for teachers, thinkers, theorists. When I left Grammar school at 16 and took up an engineering craft apprenticeship I was taking the same route as thousands of others. We all continued our education though day release and night school, some until they had completed their five year apprenticeship, others like myself following the path right through to Higher National Diploma standard. Some of the best and most creative engineers I have worked alongside had this educational background, a solid understanding of theory enriched with practical, hands on experience.

We abandoned that very successful approach to training future generations for several reasons. One was that academics gained too much influence with politicians unable to tell the difference between a genuine desire to spread knowledge and facilitate social mobility and what was really nothing but self interested empire building.

Next we allowed companies to shirk their training responsibilities. When some sharp shit accountant decided training was pointless because it was easier and cheaper to recruit fully trained staff from rivals many businessmen thought this very clever and followed suit. Eventually the cost of training made those socially responsible companies that retained a commitment to it unable to compete. The burden of training was shifted to the state. It is a task, like most tasks, at which the state does not perform well.

So basically the problems graduates now face in finding suitable employment are mostly down to short term thinking and bureaucratic empire building. Is it any surprise we are up shit creek?

Amazon Takes On Sainsbury's - Digital Economy Killing Jobs?
by Xavier Connolly

We are not against progress at this publication nor are we against technology. There has to come a point however where, when presented with some new development and told it will make life better in many ways for us all, we take the advice of Marcus Tullius Cicero and ask "Cui Bono?" Who benefits? One such case is exemplified by the expansion of Amazon into the grogeries business.

Amazon.co.uk has today started selling groceries from its website. You can get over 22,000 product lines including ready meals, fresh meat (including a whole lamb for Ł120) and household brands such as Marmite. According to James Leeson, the ‘director of grocery’ at Amazon UK, the company wants its website to be the place where customers “can find and discover any product they want to buy online”.
OK you say, Tesco and Asda sell books and CDs, why shouldn't Amazon sell corn flakes? Quite, were it only the sales of the big retailers that suffered why indeed should Amazon not sell groceries. To get an idea of how damaging this trend is however we need to take a wider view. Remember if you can the end of the 1950s when supermarkets were few and far between and every neighbourhood had its own shops. These were not just grocers, but greengrocers, butchers, fish mongers, shops selling newspapers, magazines sweets and tobacco, ironmongers, bakers and a host of other trades some just providing a living for the owner's family, some employing several people. Every town big enough to boast a town centre of a "High Street" had its bookshops, stationers, craft and hobby shops, furniture warehouses, a selection of clothing and shoe retailers, electrical shops, a record store (very American, the record business), all sorts of specialist businesses and an array of stalls and lock ups selling flowers, snacks, pet foods, gifts, second hand tat and almost anything else. Now apart from the social aspect of that system which is gone forever we have lost countless jobs. In Britain when the one - stop hypermarkets were spreading during the 1980s and 90s news programmes would report "XYZ Stores today announced a new Hypermarket to be built in Slaghoughton will create 400 new jobs." How many jobs would be lost in businesses forced to shut down or reduce staff by the arrival of a new retail force with which the independents could not hope to compete was never mentioned. An independent study by the Small Business Federation put it at double the number of jobs created. That is gone of course, we cannot turn back the clock nor undo what is done. It is ironic however that the same governments, the same political movements that shaped industrial and redevelopment policies to benefit the supermarkets are now so besotted with the digital economy they are prepared to shaft their former friends in order to help the new online retailers. The Daily Stirrer will shed no tears for Tesco and Co. but we do wonder what effect this will have on the remaining independent businesses. And in an era of economic crisis and rapidly rising joblessness we wonder about the sanity of politicians who are encouraging this expansion of online business to steam ahead at full throttle. All the talk of creating jobs and curtailing benefits to encourage people back to work starts to look a bit hypocritical when economic policy is geared towards encouraging those businesses whose success depends on destroying real jobs in the real world.

Poverty and Common Sense
by Ian R Thorpe

Two stories, both concerning jobs, one on poverty and one on benefits sat next to each other on the BBC website today. They made me think once again about the insanity that seems to have infected the nations of the developed world.

Poverty Gap Continues To Grow (BBC News, 6 July 2010) New research from the Joseph Rowntree Foundation has shown the gap between the statutory minimum wage and the income needed to fund an "acceptable standard of living" is widening.) Also read: Minimum Wage Scam ... Minimum Wage Folly
Radical Shake up For Benefit Payments
A raft of benefits have been cut or curbed as part of a radical shake up of the welfare system. These changes are designed to save Ł11bn per year by the end of the parliamentary term. That adds up to a quarter of the annual target of Ł40bn of spending cuts and tax rises by 2014-15.

We seem to have lost sight of what actually constitutes poverty. When the bleeding hears and the hand wringers start to bleat about the intolerable poverty being endured by people who do not have a broadband connection and a web enabled computer in their home, when the Labour government we ejected from office in May 2010 could spend 13 years wailing about child poverty and promising to abolish it without ever seeming to make the link between children living in poverty and adults who are lazy, self indulgent and not willing to work for a living, when we can hear talk of children who do not have the latest iPhone or iPod, designer trainers or hoodies or any of the other crap from which the modern pikey child or pikey adult derives all their self esteem are we talking about poverty or are we talking about a salve for the easily bruised consciences of middle class left wing guilt trippers?

Many of the cuts proposed in the budget presented by the Conservative / Liberal Democrat coalition will affect only across the board payments such as child benefit. Will the government have the good sense to make up the loss of genuine income for the needy so income is only reduced for more affluent recipients.

My wife and I received child benefit for both our children until they were sixteen. Throughout that time I was earning well above the national average despite living in a designated "low pay area." We now receive a winter fuel payment of Ł250 on account of my being disabled. My two colleagues in writing The Daily Stirrer both receive this as does my brother - in -law. We are all comfortably off and pay tax on our pensions. Why are these benefits paid across the board and not on a basis of need. None of the people I mentioned would complain if these benefits were removed, I know because I asked the others. We accept them because there is no easy way of opting out.

Over thirty years ago the Liberal Party as it was then, a tiny group in Parliament with about ten MPs despite polling over 10% of the vote, was campaigning for some social benefits to be linked to the PAYE tax code. It was a simple way of directing benefits to where they were needed. Since then we have had several massive projects involving the expenditure of Łbillions on Information Technology, all aimed at reforming the tax and benefits system. All have failed chaotically.

Is it not time the left, having had thirteen years to address this problem without doing anything more than whine about the horrors of deprived children who do not have iPhones, just shut the fuck up about unfairness. It's their bleeding heart incompetence, fuckwittery and failure to regulate the advertising industry's brainwashing of the public that caused most it.

Turning The Kids Into Drunks
by Ian R Thorpe

Long before The Daily Stirrer showed up on the web, when John, Xav and I used to get together in the pub to put the world to rights one topic that came up quite fequently was the demonisation of smoking.

You watch," we'd say to each other and anyone else that might be listening, "these politically correct Nazis are on a world domination trip. With Hitler it was 'Today Poland, tomorrow the world. With the do gooders it's 'Today ciggies, tomorrow the world.'"

We would think back to the 1970s, the public information campaigns about not smoking in front of the kids because it would set a bad example. We would say "Yes, when they have made smoking as unacceptable as murder, rape and paedophilia they'll start on drinking."

And they have. Look at this.

Better A Glass Of Wine With The Kids Than A Bottle Of Gin Under The Bed
The authoritarian paternalism of the Labour party may have been swept aside for the present but Labour's Politically Correct Thought Police are still spreading the message of Populist Authoritarian control freakerey. Rosie Murray - West writes here on the latest attempt to demonise parents who drink in front of their children... click here to read full post

There is no more potent drug than self righteousnes of course and the do gooders, who care about us so much they want us all to live lives as sad, empty, miserable and joyless as theirs not because they care only about protecting us from our own childish folly but because they are hooked on self righteousness as completely as any smackhead is hooked on the needle. These sad little fucks hate themselves so much the only way they can live with themselves is by contantly finding excuses to try to poke their noses into other people's lives and lecture us on how enjoying this wonderful life we have ben given in this wonderful world we inhabit will only lead to senility and death. Deluding themselves they have saved someone from the slippery slope to self destruction is the only way they can holod on to any self esteem.

Well everybody gets old and dies and personally I would rather enjoy myself until nature curtails my fun that be a miserable fucker in the hope of living three minutes longer. So look, you hand wringing, do gooding, oh-so-caring fucking fuckwits, everybody who has a normal life hates you more than you hate yourselves. So fuck right off. Where's my corkscrew.

The Wisdom Of Urgent Deficit Reduction Reaches Obamaville
by Ian R Thorpe

Not long ago I became involved in a thread with people who thought they were discussing economic philosophy. If fact they were simply doorstep evangelists for The Obamessiah and his lonytoons economics. As usual with people who cling to the notion that Obama is a competent President as tightly as working class Americans "cling to their guns and Bibles" (hey, I never said I don't hit below the belt) they make a wild statement and then defend it simply by saying no intelligent person could possibly disagree, in this case it was that everybody with any sense can see more "stimulus spending" (aka running up unsupportable debts to fund vanity projects) is essential to return the economy to growth.

A more realistic view and one that anyone with two brain cells that communicate with each other can see the validity of is that when you haven't enough money coming in to cover necessities (interest on existing debt, welfare, public sector salaries, the military, pensions etc.) it's a really really bad idea to put yourself in hock to loan sharks so you can buy a new car, a wardrobe full of designer clothes and maintain the luxury lifestyle.

At the G20 summit Obama demanded other nations buy American bonds to fund his insane spending committments. As has happened before the nations with surpluses are very well aware that economists are lying, there is no recovery in sight. public spending stimulates nothing. There is nothing to be gained by creating public sector jobs and spending money you don't have on state funded projects only deepens the problems.

I was asked to explain the basic philosophy of Keynesian economics having tried to make it clear there is a big difference between what Keynes wrote and was semi literates like Paul Krugman who have spent all their lives cocooned in academic institutions think Keynes wrote: i.e. governments can just print money to fund unlimited public spending.

Now I will explain something that is way beyond dimwits like Obama and fuckwits like Krugman. The central banks reduced the base rate, the rate at whuch they lend, to just above zero. The thinking was that by being able to borrow at such cheap rates the banks would be encouraged to lend to business and consumers at more commercial rates. The deficit economics of the Obama administration, Britains Labour government until a couple of months ago and other debtor nations mean that those governments have to sell bonds to fund their deficit requirements. So what do you think the banks are doing (bear in mind bankers might be shits but they're not stupid) Think it through, go on ...... I can hear the cogs grinding, you're getting there.....

"duh"

I THINK THEY'VE GOT IT! BY GEORGE THEY'VE GOT IT!!!

The Banks are borrowing from government at 0.5% or less and lending it straight back (buying tresury bonds) at 3%+

Would anybody like to explain to us how that stimulates anything except the profits of the banks at the taxpayers' expense.

Below we link to a good article from The Daily SItrrer. Put together by John De Roe, a former commercial banking specialist and now financial controller of a medium sized municipal authority, a mash up in which the arguments against increasing indebtedness are explained by two British Liberal economists and an American whose political provenance I am unsure of.

The public sector produces nothing of value. Tax eaters do not earn revenue they only consume it. In a world of finite resources belief in infinite growth is stupidity. We have to limit the size of the public sector to what the private sector can support. It should be a no brainer.

The Chinese and Indians are no longer buying US Treasury Bonds. Get real. John De Roe (topmost link) did not know what the outcome of the G20 summit would be when he compiled his piece and when I decided to delay replying to questioners it was simply because I had too many other things on. I guess, because in the interval the world leaders have told President Big Ears "Your credit is no good any more" and patiently explained to him yet again he is President of The United States not The World I won the argument hands down.

When Less Was More
by Ian R Thorpe

This blog likes to bring you original article but is happy to serve as a highlighter for other controversialist writers, pointing you towards writers prepared to go againt the tide of mainsteam opinion, to chalenge the orthodoxy. Today the link is to an article by the excellent Deborah Orr, a true liberal who is commenting on the persistent whining of the progressive left about public spending cuts in the coalition's budget. The terminally naive "progressive left" are labouring under the misapprehension that the debt funded good times can co on for ever, all the government has to do is keep printing money. Good food, luxury goods, clothes and holidays have been ridiculously cheap for 30 years. That's why the drop in living standards will be tough. All we can do however is brace ourselves and get ready to ride out the storm.

Deborah Orr writes: Already, I look back, like some ancient matriarch in a bad television movie, telling the story of the world through her memories. I'm only 47, and I cannot believe how much life in Britain has changed in my time. (For a start, "only 47" wasn't said much in 1962, except perhaps on the occasion of death.) I think of my late father, when I was little... Why The Financial Crisis Is Going To Hurt

And if that depressed you take a look at this clip from 1970s TV programme Tiswaz, a show that typified and era when we all had less but seemed to be much happier. It will give you a lift.

Whistleblower Exposes USA regine's torture of it's citizens

No major UK political party has a coherent plan to cut immigration.

Oh and the insurance problems.

Not long after the Berlin Wall fell a quarter of a century ago, the Soviet Union collapsed, the United States squandered its peace dividend in an attempt to maintain global dominance, and Europe quietly became more prosperous, more integrated, and more of a player in international affairs. Between ...

The age of financial privacy is over
Yes you read that right. The fascist regime in the USA has usurped to itself the right to raid bank accoutns anywhere is the world. At the moment they are only stealing money by way of tax demands from people who were born on US soil even if those people have not lived in the USA since childhood and have never be employed by a US business.

Climategate, the sequel: How we are STILL being tricked with flawed data on global warming.
Daily Stirrer occasional contributor Graham Lear returns to one of our favourite themes, the climate change hoax, part of a program of scaremongering being engineered by enemies if freedom and democracy in the higher echelons of scoiety. This about it, who is pushing the myth of catatrophic climate change being caused by Carbon Dioxide from human activity?

Transhumanism - Elitist and Mad Scientist Collaboration To Turn Us Into Automatons.
Transhumanism: there are two definitions, the production of human animal hybrids with the aim of producing superhuman creatures and the merging of humans with machines as a shortcut to creating programmable decives with human instinct, logic and congnitive skills. Neither promises any benefit to humankind in the view of those of us who believe only the natural human being can fulfill individual potential.

From Keynesian Shangri-La To Outright War
Over the last few weeks drum beats could be heard signalling the coming of troops from abroad to lay waste to any foe ahead of them. However, unlike what we first conjure up as troops from an opposing force made up of men and weapons. This battlefield is being waged in the either of the currency markets.

Everything You Need To Know About The Greek Crisis. Those people who think I have suddenly become a right wing extremist because I have been supporting UKIP's anti - EU, anti - Global Government stance and their resistance to the political mainstreams war on European cultures by be surprised to know that I was hoping for the Greek General Election to deliver a convincing victory for left-wing party Syriza.

Greece Votes On Whether Its People Have Any Future The voters of Greece will choose today, whether their country, the cradle of democracy, has a future of not. They are voting in a general election which could result in Greece trying to renegotiate the terms of its bailout with international lenders and even quitting the EU if the expected victory for hard line left wing party Syriza. The leader of Syriza, Alexis Tsipras, has pledged to write off much of Greece's huge debt and revoke austerity measures ...

Democracy: Does It have A Future Or Has Global Totalitarianism Won?
The General Election in Greece (January 2014) could have much wider effects than most elections in small nation, the vote could decide the future of the European Union and have a major breaing on whether democracy can survive the push towards government by a global, corporate oligarchy. It look like being an interesting few months if the anti - EU party wins as polls suggest they will.

People Are Waking Up To The Fact That The European Union Is On The Fast Track To Fascism.
Greece has a General Election and it looks as if the anti - EU, extreme left Syriza party will win comfortably. In previous elections that went against the Euronazis in Brussels, the democracy hating bureaucrats simply told the sovereign government of the member nation that the vote was not acceptable. If their try to overturn the Greek result in the same way it will trigger massive civil unrest.

German Anti-Islamisation Marches: What the Mainstream Media Doesn’t Want You to Know
For people who rely for news on mainstream media, what is increasingly known in Germany as the ‘liar press’ (Luegenpresse), the narrative that the racist, anti Islam protestors have turned nasty might stick. And when the reports throw in salacious details about the former leader of this movement and his colourful past, or the tragic death of an immigrant man who was killed shortly after a demonstration in Dresden last week, the pro immigrant propaganda starts to look like the voice of reason.

So Who's Making Up Innuendos About Leon Brittan
The rumor mill has gone to warp speed following the death of alleged dossier - shredder Leon Brittan. Bizarrely his friend Lord Deben seems to think the various allegations raging from Brittan's role in covering up the activities of a Westminster paedophile ring, to his actual involvement in sexual abuse of children only originated recently.

The Death Of Democracy - Are The Elites Running Scared From Public Opinion
When did democracy go out of fashion. I don't remember voting on whether we wanted to give up our civil liberties or be ruled by a dictatorship of unelected bureaucrats from Brussels, but that is where we are heading, along with the other free nations of Europe. And the USA, so-called land of the free is further along the road to fascism than Europe.

Google’s Eric Schmidt Greases Skids For Internet Brain Chip Google CEO Eric Schmidt greased the skids for an Internet brain chip during a speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland earlier today when he predicted the end of the world wide web as an external concept.

Why the war on CO2 has done far more harm than good
Warmageddonists send a lot of time screeching and scaremongering about the potpentially catastrophic outcomes of increased atmospheric CO2 levels, exaggerating their claims wildly in order to frighten people into supporting their war on the oil and coal industries. Policies formulated to tackle the imaginary threat of anthropogenic climate change have ...

Researchers Discover How to Use Living Plants to Generate Electricity.
Most of the hyped green energy solutions to generate electricity from wind or sunshine are so obviously flawed the only thing that makes them economically viable is that governments offer huge subsidies to generators. This in turn makes the sustainables so expensive that consumers cannot afford the intermittent energy they produce.

Top anti-GMO scientists band together in film exposing threats and secrecy.

Je Suis Saussice (in defence of your right to eat pork sausages)
Just as we showed solidarity with the publishers of Charlie Hebdo magazine after twelve staff were murdered by religious extremists and defended the right of citizens in democratic nations to criticize religion by saying "Je Suis Charlie" so we are now making a stand in support of the freedom to eat sausages (which is an abomination to Allah apparently,) by saying "Je Suis Saussice".

Trade Treaties Fast Track Not A Done Deal, The People Will Stop It
The fast tracking of two trade treaties, TTIP and TPP that the corporate gofor, President Barack Hussein Obama, is pushing in the hope that the deals, will enable him to complete the task he was shoehorned into office for by transferring control of national laws from elected governments to corporate lawyers, looks to be stalling.

Prescription painkillers’ overuse has become ‘silent epidemic’ in USA, UK and Europe.
The United kingdon's Office Of National Statistics regularly publishes disturbing figure on the overuse of prescription drugs in the UK.

More Global Warming Hot Air, As Climate Fundamentalists Continue Inflating a False Reality

We’re told this week that Washington’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Climatic Data Center (NOAA) had finally crunched its numbers for 2014, and Al Gore is a very happy man, as are the armies of amateur climate experts who take government scientific announcements as gospel.

Could 'DNA editing' lead to designer babies? Designer babies, human / animal hybrids, these things have been in wet dream territory for scientists for a long time. But now due to techniques such as DNA editing, they are getting worryingly close to reality. And as has been demonstrated many times, scientists have zero uderstanding of where the ethical boundaries lie.

We said 2014 was the warmest year on record… but we’re only 38% sure we were right - NASA
Nasa admits this means it is far from certain that 2014 set a record at all. Does that mean 97% of climate experts are 62% sure they are wrong? The thing with half-truths is that they generate a glorious fog, but it has no substance. Ask of the spin-cloud a couple of sensible questions and the narrative collapses.

Prince Andrew allegations: Suday Mirror Asks: Is this the London house where 'sex slave' says she romped with him?
More Global Warming Hot Air, As Climate Fundamentalists Continue Inflating a False Reality

Believe The Phoney Narrative Or Be Branded a Conspiracy Theorist.
Right now the west is in big trouble, the move led by Russia and China to dump the petrodollar as global currency has provoked the Americans to lead the wesern allies into an economic war that we cannot win. Why not? One word: debt. A shooting war is the only option but it's by no means certain the allies would win that.

Seventy Years Down The Line And We Have Come Back To Appeasement As A Means To Peace.
As a spate of increasingly bloody and violent attacks on civilized values and the democratif freedoms of the western nations (free speech for example) continues to cause revulsion among the general population, our spineless leader are calling on us to be tolerant. The cowardly hypocrites who lead us may be ready to surrender, but anger is mounting in the cities and towns.

Russia throws down the gauntlet: energy supply to Europe cut off; petrodollar abandoned as currency war escalates
There are some big moves taking place on the global stage that you need to know about, as this could all lead to World War III. Yesterday Russia cut off its natural gas supply to Europe, "plunging the continent into an energy crisis 'within hours' as a dispute with Ukraine escalated," the Daily Mail reported. "This morning, gas companies in Ukraine said that Russia had completely cut off their supply. Six countries reported a complete shut-off of Russian gas shipped via Ukraine today, in a sharp escalation of ...

Europe’s Intensifying Immigration Debate
In an absolutely gobsmacking psychological meltdown and an unparalleled display of bourgeois self hate, the former Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt demonstrated how wide the gap between the political and academic elite and reality has become in the materially advanced democracies.

‘Uncaged Corporate Parrots’ Of The Political Elite and The GMO False Narrative
The Environment Secretary in the UK Coalition Government, Elizabeth Truss has argued that genetically modified (GM) food should be grown in Britain because it is more ‘eco-friendly’. She adds that steps should be taken to speed up this development. Her statements come as little surprise to many because Truss’s predecessor, Owen Paterson, was also a staunch supporter of GM technology.

Earth’s CO2 Levels Pass Global Warming ‘Milestone', Nothing Happens - Daily Caller.
After two decades of panic stricken scientists and screeching lefties wailing about the catatrophe that would ensue once the concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere passed 400 parts per million, that figure was reached in December 2014. No islands sank, no ice caps disappeared, no cities were incinerated. Which is pretty much what those of us who recognize the science of scaremongering when we see it predicted would happen.

Who’s a Charlie? France cracks down on free speech in order to defend it
In grim and supreme irony, French police have fanned out to suppress free speech in order to defend it.“France ordered prosecutors around the country to crack down on hate speech, anti-Semitism and glorifying terrorism, announcing Wednesday that 54 people had been arrested for those offenses” since last week, the Associated Press reports.

But whenm it comes to politically correct control freakery, Labour will always outdo the others.

Economist: World Leaders Will Exploit Charlie Hebdo to Eliminate Internet Privacy
Economist Martin Armstrong warns that the twin attacks in France will be used by world leaders to push for restrictions on Internet privacy and the total elimination of encrypted communications.

Oxford University Bans All Things Pig Related In Support Of Free Speech
When does being reasonable and open minded become cowardice? When academics who pride themselves on intellectual detachment cave in to threats from extremists and try to pass off their pitiful weakness by pretending they are showing sensitivity to the feelings of minorities.

While the world has been looking the other way, Boko Haram has been conquering Nigeria

Insane Science Pushing The Earth Towards Ecocide. At the Daily Stirrer we have suspected it for a log time, science is insane, a game for the ethically challenged and sociopathic to compete to be first to develop a new plague, or a death ray, or to trash the enviromnent in pursuit of political power or corporate profits for their paymasters. There's even a name for what they are doing now, Ecocide.

A Republic Always Decays Into Oligarchy. Here's Why
Almost a rehash of Schumpeter's warning, that capital alwaysd contains the seeds of its own destruction while socialism always leads to fascism. I guess the old Austrian economist was trying to tel us the only thing that works is chaos. I can live with that.

France sees dozens of anti-Muslim incidents.
No doubt our leaders and the media will condemn the backlash from ordinary French people to the Charlie Hebdo massacre. Random attacks on decent Muslims are wrong. but how long do the elites expect us to keep showing tolerance when they have done nothing about a long standing problem.

The Debt Ponzi Deconstructed
Most of us are familiar with the concept of GDP as a measure of economic health. If GDP increases, the myth goes, then the economy has grown. It is a measure of how effectively or efficiently we are utilizing our assets to generate wealth. The idea is that the more I invest the more notional returns I can generate. Unfortunately GDP is a false economic measure, it only measures the rate at which money churns around the economic system.

In The War On Terror, Freedom Is Not Winning While we would like to write about more positive things, protecting democracy and free speech, guiding people towards healthy lifestyles, how we the punters can save the planet (especially from the idiocies of the Warmageddonist lobby) and so on, we find far too much of our time is spent trying to get the truth about important issues in front of readers. Mainstream media has abandoned news reporting in favour of simply repeating government and corporate propaganda. Terrorism is one issue on which you will only finds out facts from new media.

Why Iceland Recovery Is Being Ignored In Mainstream News
Iceland is a small country with less that half a million people so is not a good comparison with Britain. It's recovery from near bankruptcy in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis however is due to the rejection of politically correct, globalist politics so in that light it serves to illustrate that to suggest Britain (60 million people) cannot survive outside the EU is just globalist scaremongering.

The Euro Is Closer To Collapse Than Anyone Cares To Admit.
A victory for the anti EU Syriza Party in the Greek elections later this month would lead to a Greek default on its massive sovereign debts. This in turn would mean Greece would have to quit the EU.

It is going to be interesting to watch this one play out.

Labour Elite Thinks Northerners Are Thick - I Told You So
A strong feeling is starting to emerge that whatever the Labour leadeship does, the party is not going to win May's election.

As a wave of comment on internet news suites about the similarities between the disappearance of an AirAsia Airbus, flight QZ8501 on a routine trip from Jave to singapore and the equally inexplicable disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 in the same area en route from Kuala Lumpur nine months ago, it was quite predictable that while there remains no trace of MH370, this time floating debrius and bodies have been found at the alleged crasah site.

Will 2014 Go Down As The Year Propaganda Replaced Information?
Those of us who pay attention will have noticed that 2014 has topped all others for the manout of spin and propaganda spread by mainstream news organisations and government departments but also news took on a new aspect.

Don’t believe American lies about Russia
What we are seeing in western media about the currency and oil price war being waged against Russia by the Obama administration in America is not only a very subjective version of events being presented by Washington spin doctors, it ignores the fact that though the USA and EU may have imposed sanctions on Russia, China, India, Iran, Turkey, all African and south American nations and most of south east Asia are still doing business with Moscow.

A beginners Guide To Thinking For Yourself About Climate Change
Climate change has become a more fanatical and more dangerous religion that fundamentalist Christianity, Islam or Zionism.

Everything The Science Whores Told You About Eating Fat Was A Lie.

What Would George Orwell Think Of The Screeching Left's Horror At Plans To Shrink The State. In part one of his classic social commentary, The Road To Wigan Pier, George Orwell wrote of the grinding poverty and appalling living conditions endured by people in industrial areas.

Evolution: Theory, Fact or Fiasco?
Much as I have faith in Charles Darwin's Theory Of Evolution as a feasible explanation of how diverse species originate (The Origin Of The Species) it annoys me when science fans insist "Evolution is not a theory, its a fact." Especially annoying of course is when they cite evolution to explain the origin of life on earth or the development of human intelligence. Even more annoying is their assumption that anyone questioning them is a young Earth creationist. Here are a few thoughts on some of evolution theory's inconsistencies ...

Most of the GM produce that is finding its way into the human food chain has been modified to make it resistant to herbicides (weed killer) and pesticides (insect killer) that are deadly to humans - just look at the warnings on a packet of garden weed killer or domestic fly spray if you want proof of that. And remember in bulk food production we are talking about industrial quantities of industrial strength toxins. Scientists on the corporate payroll assure us ...

Are Humans Becoming Extinct
some scientists, Guy McPherson included, down at the Climate Change conference who fear that climate disruption is so serious, with so many self-reinforcing feedback loops already in play, that humans are in the process of causing our own extinction.

No major UK political party has a coherent plan to cut immigration.
As the election creeps nearer, and latest figures show immigration has gone out of control again, it is clear UKIP is the only party willing to address the issue. The Liberal democrats would simply open the doors and dismantle all controls, while Convervative and Labour leaders mouth empty promises but are too afraid of being tagged 'racist' to act.

Child Sex Exploitation - Abuse Scadal Spreads To Chelmsford
Essex police have issued an apology over bungled child abuse investigations. In the last 12 months a "shocking" level of child sexual exploitation (CSE) has been reported to police and cases of abuse had been hidden for too long, a senior officer has acknowledged.

Why are people sceptical about climate change?
Forget the leftie hate mobs for the moment, ignore their claims that 'the science is settled' and any talk of 'the scientific consensus, there is a lot more to the debate than simple minded science worshippers will admit. Which explains of course why they are so desperate to suppress open discussion of the issue.

Rotherham sex abuse victims 'ferried to gangs and abused by taxi drivers paid by council staff
Taxi drivers provided by Rotherham Council's child care service took advantage of their contact with young girls to drive them to the vice dens set up by the town's notorious gangs who often subjected their young victioms to gang rape and worse, a whistleblower has said following the publication of the Casey report ...

Dr. Offit, Vaccine Pusher in Chief is exposed as a liar.
Some time ago my editor-in-chief was the target of hate attacks by left wing sheeple for questioning the effectiveness of vaccines as anything but profit drivers for Big Pharma. Well Ian has thick skin so he was quite pleased to have provoked a few death threats. One of his targets howver was Dr. Offit who had famously said new born babies could have 10,000 vaccines at the same time without suffering harm. He has not fared so well, having become an object of ridicule.

Europe Fractures: France Pivots To Putin, Cyprus Offers Moscow Military Base and Germany-US Splinter On Ukraine
Yesterday’s news reports did the usual whitewash job in reporting the the Minsk Summit which aimed to thrash out a Ukraine “peace” deal. Mainstream media gives the impression that the US / EU / NATO alliance are solid in their defence of Ukraine following the CIA engineered coup last year, in reality the various parties involved appear to be flying apart faster than the fragments of shell casing from missiles exploding at they strike targets on Donetsk.

America Is Being Destroyed
A guest post today from USA based writer and poet, Vic Damico. We have written many times of the harm being done to the cultural and social structure of Western Europe's developed nations by the determination of the elites to crush true cultural diversity and replace it with a politically correct monoculture in which differences in skin colour and sexual preference replace diversity of ideas, philosophies and lifestyles.

Thanks To The Dishonest Climate Scientists, the Public Doesn’t Know Water Vapor Is Most Important Greenhouse Gas.
Yet another exposure of the lies that have propped up the scientific dishonesty and corporate greed behind the global warming scare. Climate change is real, but the climate has changed constantly for millions of years and whatever the final outcome of what is going on now is not likely to be catastrophic. Very minor changes over the last hundred years have been amplified by data manipulation and the likely effects overstated.

A Monster From The Past Wreaks Havoc - Cthulhu? Yog Sothoth? Snow?
It was a thing from the past they said, a monster from the paleo - darkness that by 2010 would be made extinct by the downside of progress and never return to afflict children growing up today. It would die because of climate change, they said, and the world would be as if it had never existed. And the Ice Dragon would be slain and disappear from ...

Putin Isolated? What about his new best mates France and Germany
perhaps most significantly is France's continued apparent pivot towards Russia... Following Francois Hollande's calls for greater autonomy for Eastern Ukraine, former French President Nicolas Sarkozy has come out in apparent support of Russia (and specifically against the US), "we are part of a common civilization with Russia,”

The Death Of The Petrodollar Was Finally Noticed
Three months ago, Zero Hedge reported "How The Petrodollar Quietly Died, And Nobody Noticed". It has to be said that my articles for The Daily Stirrer have been telling you about the terminal illness of the Petrodollar for two years. Both I and the excellet Zero Hedge have explained in forensic detail why

Multi-Cultural England: Are You Feeling The Progressive Diversity.
As racial and sectarian tension increase on the streets of britain while politicians gear up for the election campaign, we take a look at the state of Britain today, Imigrant child abuse gangs, Clerics of alient faiths dictating moral strictures, and everywhere we look, foreigners being given provieged status. Is it any wonder the voters are angry?

Labour politicians wilfully ignored sex abuse, former MP reveals
Young girls who were being sexually abused by Asian men were ignored by officials because of Left-wing political correctness, Labour figures say. The culture of politically correct thinking which has spead like a cancer throughout the establishment led politicians, public officials, news reporters and media commentators to wilfully ignore the plight of young girls who were being sexually abused by Asian men, Labour figures have warned.

Elite abuse scandal: Former MI6 agent admits giving big names to sex dossier MP

Syriza Official Vows to Kill EU-US Trade Deal as 'Gift to All European People'

An official with Greece's newly elected Syriza party may have killed a proposed EU-U.S. trade deal that has faced opposition from civil society. The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), now facing its eighth round of talks between negotiators this week in Brussels. The TTIP, which would be the biggest trade deal ever, has been criticized as a corporate-friendly deal that threatens food and environmental safety under the guise of "harmonization" of regulations.

Last Year's Flu VCaccine Does Not Work Against This Years Flu.

News reports today, following up the revelation that this year's massively hyped flu vaccine only works for three per cent of the people who received it, we learn today that the government Ministers reponsible may have known for almost a year ago there was a strain of influenza emerging which the flu vaccine did not protect against ...

Paedophilia normal in human males? Is it really Professor?
Regular readers of this blog will not need to be reminded that we don’t have much time for academics. For the most part they tend to be useless individuals who couldn’t hold down jobs as shelf stackers or burger flippers were they forced to live in the real world. Due to the bizarre way our education system assess human intelligence however,

Labour's Multicultural, Utopian Paradise?
Boggart Bloggers had a good idea what the Rotherham sex abuse report, published yesterday, was going to contain for quite a while. Rotherham had long been one of the Labour flagship councils that the party's propaganda machine liked to portray as a multicultural utopian farmyard in which all the cultures were equal.

Another Conspiracy Theory Becomes Fact: Oil Collapse Is All About Obama's Proxy War With Russia.
While we are distracted with sex scandals at home and terrorists rampaging through the middle east and Africa, the US / EU / NATO confrontation with Russia / China / Iran is geting into a very dangerous state. While the Chinese led move to dump the US dollar as global reserve currency is causing economic chaos, the USA attempts to provoke armed conflict with Russia are getting more reckless and desperate.

Will Benghazi Flush Hillary's hopes down the karzi
Washington Times’ publishes expose that could sink Hillary Clinton's Presidential hopes. Tapes Confirm Citizen Commission’s findings on Benghazi screw up that cost American lives.

Rotherham Scandal Spreads as Police and Local Councillors Accused of Child Abuse
As we predicted when this composite page was opened last August, after the publication of a damning report authored by Dr. Alexis Jay, on how police and municipal officials turned a blind eye to organised sex abuse in the town of Rotherham, South Yorkshire, the story of sexual perversion and corruption of local officials had a lot more secrets to yield. In the latest development ...

GM babies? How About The Frankenstein Lobby Try A Bit Of Honesty And Call It Eugenics
As the British Parliament debated legalising the use of techniques to create three parent babies and the dishonest champions of scientific fascism claim is is a perfectly safe development to remove faulty genes from humanity and in no way similar to programs with the same aim carried out in Nazi Germany, we challenge them to be honest and admit what they propose is Eugenics, a morally repugnant quest to create a master race. And all three main political parties support it.

Thatcher stopped Peter Hayman being named as paedophile-link civil servant

Margaret Thatcher was adamant officials should not publicly name Sir Peter Hayman, a senior diplomat connected to a paedophile scandal, even after she had been fully briefed on his activities, examination of formerly secret papers released to the National Archives shows.

Obama Lubes Up And Bends Over To Service The Worst Corporate Tax Dodgers
Obama was always the corporate candidate. It is any wonder then that under his presidency, in spite of promises to redistribute wealth from rich to poor, the wealth gap between rich and poor has grown immensely wider? Is it any wonder that under his presidency the anti democracy trade deals TTIP and TPP are being pushed on the world, even though they will benefit the worst corporate tax dodgers?

Google Driverless Car Project - there are still a few snags to be ironed out
We said when it was first announced nearly a year ago that the Google driverless car was a non starter. It was not just the fact that Mercedes are miles ahead, nor Google's lack off attachment to reality. It was not the obvious (to those who have worked in the industry) tchnical problems, but the fact that people don't like giving control to machines that will scupper it. Oh and the insurance problems.

High Class Prostitutes Are Used As Bribes In Business Deals.
Shock, horror! In the wake of elitist child abuse scandals and with the trial of International Bureaucrats Dominic eight-hookers-at-a-time Strauss Kahn under way in France (he's accused of pimping) mainstream media have just discovered what an immoral and self indulgent sack of rogues the elite really are.

Medical experts furious that doctors will be paid to dole out 'risky' statins DOCTORS are set to get extra payments to hand out controversial statin drugs to patients who face a low risk of ever developing heart disease. It could mean four in 10 adults, including most of those in late middle age, are put on regular doses in a move that “medicalises” healthy people, leaving them at risk of side-effects including diabetes and memory loss.

If You Believe Mainstream Media You Probably Think Russia Is On Its Knees - WRONG!
Barack Obama, David Cameron and other western leaders have been schlepping their anti Russia schtick around the gatherings of the global elite. The brave talk does not scare the Russian leaders at all, the neo Nazi regime shoehorned into power in Ukraine is losing its war against pro - Russian separatists.

Terrifying experiments are conducted on animals so that you can eat cheap, tasty meat
The United States government and the Big Ag and Big Food Corporations are behind a program of cruel and inhumane experimentation on farm animals, according to a new report by the New York Times.The Times says that a little-known agricultural and veterinary research facility, the U.S. Meat Animal Research Center, conducts experimetsn in breeding and performs surgery on farm animals.

OH NO MEASLES, WE’RE ALL GONNA D— Wait, How Many People Died Of Measles Before Vaccinations?.
The vaccine controversy erupts again as governments, politicized scientists and profit hungry corporations step up the bullying of parents about getting children vaccinated against minor illnesses or problems that will never afflict them (vaccinating boys against cervical cancer for example). Scaremongering involving health and particularly children's health is a very potent weapon in the battle to suppress dissent however ...

The Pain In Spain - Will This Be The Next country To Rebel Against EU Tyranny
With society breaking down because of austerity measures imposed by the EU, Greece recently elected a government that will cancel the debt and leave the EU if Greeks are not released from the onerous constraints of Euro single currency membership. Spain looks as if it will bring about the next Euro zxone crisis.

Swiss Decoupling Sets The Euro Adrift, Triggers Vast Losses For Banks, And Currency Traders
Nobody is shedding any tears over the news that the deciusion by the Swiss central bank to sever the link that kept The Euro single European currency from the Swiss Franc, it is just another example of really important news you will never read of hear of from mainstream media. It is however bad news for all of us.

The Death Of Democracy - Lobbying For TTIP
For some years now I and my libertarian friends in the blogosphere have been warning that democracy in the west is under threat, elected governments having been infiltrated by lobbyists working for a corporate elite. These lobbyists, who have no official status but plenty of money available for 'hospitality' (graft, payola, slush, bribery, incentivizing, call it what you will) ...

Secret ‘BADASS’ Intelligence Program Used To Spy On Smartphones.
Oh what a laugh, what a grin, those kool dudes who strut around with their iPhones clamped to their ear to show us that they paid $500 for a phone they could hsve bought for $150 had they been willing to do without the little Apple logo, and those who bought smart phones because, well everybody who is anybody has one, have been well and truly had.

Unelected Bureaucrats Are Signing Away Our Civil Rights In Secret TTIP Negotiations

For some years now we have been warning that democracy in the west is under threat, elected governments having been infiltrated by lobbyists working for a corporate elite. These lobbyists, who have no official status but plenty of money available for 'hospitality' to help them enlist the support of corrupt officials – but more and more often these days, prominent scientists, 'special advisers' and former politicians who are happy to sell their reputation.

Decapitation Strategy’ Claims Another Victim as Left Targets Leaders of PEGIDA
A week after Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the West founder Lutz Bachmann was forced to resign over old Facebook posts, his replacement Kathrin Oertel has also resigned along with four colleagues, citing harassment and threats.

The NHS doctors who get cash from healthcare firms for patient referrals
An investigation revealed incentives, often worth tens of thousands of pounds, have been offered to doctors by private healthcare companies in exchange for referring patients to their hospitals. The British Medical Journal reported claims that the doctors’ regulator, the General Medical Council (GMC), failed to act on a warning in 2012 that the practice of offering incentives was “widespread, particularly in London, and significant in value”.

Open Letter to the New Finance Minister of Greece Yanis Varoufakis

(This letter ran on the following notable blogs: David Stockman's ContraCorner, Dmitry Orlov's Blog, and The StealthFlation Blog: Dear Yanis, As an ardent admirer, with the utmost respect for what you have put forward and accomplished to date, I humbly offer my thoughts for your consideration.

When Politicians Don't Have A Clue How To Deal With A Problem They Pretend It Does Not Exist.
Mass Immigration, Islamification of European Societies, extremist terrorism, the creation of ghettos in western cities and widespread civil unrest. And yet the political, media and academic elities still resuse to acknowledge that their 'open door' immigration policies are causing major problems.

Regulatory Cooperation’ and TTIP: Opening The Floodgates For Corporate Plunder
A new leak concerning the talks around the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) indicates that the floodgates could be opened even further for corporate influence. The leak has been analysed by the corporate watchdogs CEO and LobbyControl and shows that corporate influence on EU and US policies might dramatically increase via the chapter on so-called ‘regulatory cooperation’.

The European Union May Be on the Verge of Regime Collapse
Europe won the Cold War and looked set to become the global superpower. So where did it all go wrong?
Not long after the Berlin Wall fell a quarter of a century ago, the Soviet Union collapsed, the United States squandered its peace dividend in an attempt to maintain global dominance, and Europe quietly became more prosperous, more integrated, and more of a player in international affairs. Between ...

The age of financial privacy is over
Yes you read that right. The fascist regime in the USA has usurped to itself the right to raid bank accoutns anywhere is the world. At the moment they are only stealing money by way of tax demands from people who were born on US soil even if those people have not lived in the USA since childhood and have never be employed by a US business.

Climategate, the sequel: How we are STILL being tricked with flawed data on global warming.
Daily Stirrer occasional contributor Graham Lear returns to one of our favourite themes, the climate change hoax, part of a program of scaremongering being engineered by enemies if freedom and democracy in the higher echelons of scoiety. This about it, who is pushing the myth of catatrophic climate change being caused by Carbon Dioxide from human activity?

Transhumanism - Elitist and Mad Scientist Collaboration To Turn Us Into Automatons.
Transhumanism: there are two definitions, the production of human animal hybrids with the aim of producing superhuman creatures and the merging of humans with machines as a shortcut to creating programmable decives with human instinct, logic and congnitive skills. Neither promises any benefit to humankind in the view of those of us who believe only the natural human being can fulfill individual potential.

From Keynesian Shangri-La To Outright War
Over the last few weeks drum beats could be heard signalling the coming of troops from abroad to lay waste to any foe ahead of them. However, unlike what we first conjure up as troops from an opposing force made up of men and weapons. This battlefield is being waged in the either of the currency markets.

Everything You Need To Know About The Greek Crisis. Those people who think I have suddenly become a right wing extremist because I have been supporting UKIP's anti - EU, anti - Global Government stance and their resistance to the political mainstreams war on European cultures by be surprised to know that I was hoping for the Greek General Election to deliver a convincing victory for left-wing party Syriza.

Greece Votes On Whether Its People Have Any Future The voters of Greece will choose today, whether their country, the cradle of democracy, has a future of not. They are voting in a general election which could result in Greece trying to renegotiate the terms of its bailout with international lenders and even quitting the EU if the expected victory for hard line left wing party Syriza. The leader of Syriza, Alexis Tsipras, has pledged to write off much of Greece's huge debt and revoke austerity measures ...

Democracy: Does It have A Future Or Has Global Totalitarianism Won?
The General Election in Greece (January 2014) could have much wider effects than most elections in small nation, the vote could decide the future of the European Union and have a major breaing on whether democracy can survive the push towards government by a global, corporate oligarchy. It look like being an interesting few months if the anti - EU party wins as polls suggest they will.

People Are Waking Up To The Fact That The European Union Is On The Fast Track To Fascism.
Greece has a General Election and it looks as if the anti - EU, extreme left Syriza party will win comfortably. In previous elections that went against the Euronazis in Brussels, the democracy hating bureaucrats simply told the sovereign government of the member nation that the vote was not acceptable. If their try to overturn the Greek result in the same way it will trigger massive civil unrest.

German Anti-Islamisation Marches: What the Mainstream Media Doesn’t Want You to Know
For people who rely for news on mainstream media, what is increasingly known in Germany as the ‘liar press’ (Luegenpresse), the narrative that the racist, anti Islam protestors have turned nasty might stick. And when the reports throw in salacious details about the former leader of this movement and his colourful past, or the tragic death of an immigrant man who was killed shortly after a demonstration in Dresden last week, the pro immigrant propaganda starts to look like the voice of reason.

So Who's Making Up Innuendos About Leon Brittan
The rumor mill has gone to warp speed following the death of alleged dossier - shredder Leon Brittan. Bizarrely his friend Lord Deben seems to think the various allegations raging from Brittan's role in covering up the activities of a Westminster paedophile ring, to his actual involvement in sexual abuse of children only originated recently.

The Death Of Democracy - Are The Elites Running Scared From Public Opinion
When did democracy go out of fashion. I don't remember voting on whether we wanted to give up our civil liberties or be ruled by a dictatorship of unelected bureaucrats from Brussels, but that is where we are heading, along with the other free nations of Europe. And the USA, so-called land of the free is further along the road to fascism than Europe.

Google’s Eric Schmidt Greases Skids For Internet Brain Chip Google CEO Eric Schmidt greased the skids for an Internet brain chip during a speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland earlier today when he predicted the end of the world wide web as an external concept. Asked how he saw the Internet developing in future years, Schmidt responded, “There will be so many IP addresses…so many devices, sensors, things that you are wearing, things that you are interacting with that you won’t even sense it.”

Why the war on CO2 has done far more harm than good
Warmageddonists send a lot of time screeching and scaremongering about the potpentially catastrophic outcomes of increased atmospheric CO2 levels, exaggerating their claims wildly in order to frighten people into supporting their war on the oil and coal industries. Policies formulated to tackle the imaginary threat of anthropogenic climate change have ...

Researchers Discover How to Use Living Plants to Generate Electricity.
Most of the hyped green energy solutions to generate electricity from wind or sunshine are so obviously flawed the only thing that makes them economically viable is that governments offer huge subsidies to generators. This in turn makes the sustainables so expensive that consumers cannot afford the intermittent energy they produce.

Top anti-GMO scientists band together in film exposing threats and secrecy.
The debate within the scientific community about the safety for humans and the environment of the widespread replacement of natural crops with genetically engineered plans is hotting up. On one side is the pro - GMO lobby, mainstream science, the political and business establishment and the big money campaigning of the biotech industry...

Je Suis Saussice (in defence of your right to eat pork sausages)
Just as we showed solidarity with the publishers of Charlie Hebdo magazine after twelve staff were murdered by religious extremists and defended the right of citizens in democratic nations to criticize religion by saying "Je Suis Charlie" so we are now making a stand in support of the freedom to eat sausages (which is an abomination to Allah apparently,) by saying "Je Suis Saussice".

Trade Treaties Fast Track Not A Done Deal, The People Will Stop It
The fast tracking of two trade treaties, TTIP and TPP that the corporate gofor, President Barack Hussein Obama, is pushing in the hope that the deals, will enable him to complete the task he was shoehorned into office for by transferring control of national laws from elected governments to corporate lawyers, looks to be stalling.

Prescription painkillers’ overuse has become ‘silent epidemic’ in USA, UK and Europe.
The United kingdon's Office Of National Statistics regularly publishes disturbing figure on the overuse of prescription drugs in the UK. Abuse of prescription painkillers by patients, overprescription by medical professionals and illnesses related to taking prolonged high doses of prescription painkillers are getting worse every year, to the extent that BBC Television has screened features and documentaries on the topic.

More Political Ineptitude Stirs Secterian Tensions
Amid the surfeit of scaremongering about Islamic extremist terrorism and attempts to secure immunity from attack by appeasement we have seen Oxford University Press ban all pig related words from its publications because pigs are an abomination to Allah and references to them will offend Muslims ...

More Global Warming Hot Air, As Climate Fundamentalists Continue Inflating a False Reality

We’re told this week that Washington’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Climatic Data Center (NOAA) had finally crunched its numbers for 2014, and Al Gore is a very happy man, as are the armies of amateur climate experts who take government scientific announcements as gospel.

Could 'DNA editing' lead to designer babies? Designer babies, human / animal hybrids, these things have been in wet dream territory for scientists for a long time. But now due to techniques such as DNA editing, they are getting worryingly close to reality. And as has been demonstrated many times, scientists have zero uderstanding of where the ethical boundaries lie.

We said 2014 was the warmest year on record… but we’re only 38% sure we were right - NASA
Nasa admits this means it is far from certain that 2014 set a record at all. Does that mean 97% of climate experts are 62% sure they are wrong? The thing with half-truths is that they generate a glorious fog, but it has no substance. Ask of the spin-cloud a couple of sensible questions and the narrative collapses.

Prince Andrew allegations: Suday Mirror Asks: Is this the London house where 'sex slave' says she romped with him?
More Global Warming Hot Air, As Climate Fundamentalists Continue Inflating a False Reality

Believe The Phoney Narrative Or Be Branded a Conspiracy Theorist.
Right now the west is in big trouble, the move led by Russia and China to dump the petrodollar as global currency has provoked the Americans to lead the wesern allies into an economic war that we cannot win. Why not? One word: debt. A shooting war is the only option but it's by no means certain the allies would win that.

Seventy Years Down The Line And We Have Come Back To Appeasement As A Means To Peace.
As a spate of increasingly bloody and violent attacks on civilized values and the democratif freedoms of the western nations (free speech for example) continues to cause revulsion among the general population, our spineless leader are calling on us to be tolerant. The cowardly hypocrites who lead us may be ready to surrender, but anger is mounting in the cities and towns.

Russia throws down the gauntlet: energy supply to Europe cut off; petrodollar abandoned as currency war escalates
There are some big moves taking place on the global stage that you need to know about, as this could all lead to World War III. Yesterday Russia cut off its natural gas supply to Europe, "plunging the continent into an energy crisis 'within hours' as a dispute with Ukraine escalated," the Daily Mail reported. "This morning, gas companies in Ukraine said that Russia had completely cut off their supply. Six countries reported a complete shut-off of Russian gas shipped via Ukraine today, in a sharp escalation of ...

Europe’s Intensifying Immigration Debate
In an absolutely gobsmacking psychological meltdown and an unparalleled display of bourgeois self hate, the former Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt demonstrated how wide the gap between the political and academic elite and reality has become in the materially advanced democracies. He also made himself an early fron runner for the title "cupid stunt of the century.

Spain's new migrant law upsets E U Thought Police
Spanish police have been accused of violating human rights conventions by beating African migrants who climb the fences between Morocco and Spanish African territories and deporting them on the spot (so-called "pushbacks"), ignoring asylum procedures.

‘Uncaged Corporate Parrots’ Of The Political Elite and The GMO False Narrative
The Environment Secretary in the UK Coalition Government, Elizabeth Truss has argued that genetically modified (GM) food should be grown in Britain because it is more ‘eco-friendly’. She adds that steps should be taken to speed up this development. Her statements come as little surprise to many because Truss’s predecessor, Owen Paterson, was also a staunch supporter of GM technology.

Earth’s CO2 Levels Pass Global Warming ‘Milestone', Nothing Happens - Daily Caller.
After two decades of panic stricken scientists and screeching lefties wailing about the catatrophe that would ensue once the concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere passed 400 parts per million, that figure was reached in December 2014. No islands sank, no ice caps disappeared, no cities were incinerated. Which is pretty much what those of us who recognize the science of scaremongering when we see it predicted would happen.

Who’s a Charlie? France cracks down on free speech in order to defend it
In grim and supreme irony, French police have fanned out to suppress free speech in order to defend it.“France ordered prosecutors around the country to crack down on hate speech, anti-Semitism and glorifying terrorism, announcing Wednesday that 54 people had been arrested for those offenses” since last week, the Associated Press reports.

Labour's Cockfish Reveals How Mainfesto Will Piss You Off.
All three main parties in the UK General Election are campaigning from a Politically Correct Consensus (i.e. Control Freak) platform. But whenm it comes to politically correct control freakery, Labour will always outdo the others. The main early thut of their campaign is a promise to criminalise sugary snacks and breakfast cereals, fatty foods and some fizzy drinks. And they're serious, they have handed the job of selling this idiocy to The Cockfish of British politics.

Charlie Hebdo: No Wonder There Are Conspiracy Theories
With a little distance between us and the Charlie Hebdo killings, questions remain unanswered and are likely to remain so. These questions inspire conspiracy theories, which in turn trigger authority worshippers to dismiss anyone who asks legitimate questions as 'right wing nut jobs'...

Economist: World Leaders Will Exploit Charlie Hebdo to Eliminate Internet Privacy
Economist Martin Armstrong warns that the twin attacks in France will be used by world leaders to push for restrictions on Internet privacy and the total elimination of encrypted communications. Armstrong writes that, “They are using this latest event precisely as they used 911 to strip us of all rights. David Cameron, PM of Britain, wants to block WhatsApp and Snapchat if he wins the next election, as part of his plans for new surveillance...

Oxford University Bans All Things Pig Related In Support Of Free Speech
When does being reasonable and open minded become cowardice?

Evolution: Theory, Fact or Fiasco?
Much as I have faith in Charles Darwin's Theory Of Evolution as a feasible explanation of how diverse species originate (The Origin Of The Species) it annoys me when science fans insist "Evolution is not a theory, its a fact."
