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 ...

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 administrations 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 peoples 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 1920s 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 worlds 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.

BPs 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 100,000 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 15,000.

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.

Dick Puddlecoat drew out attention to this item, confirmation of what us truth tellers have known about the NHS for a long time but what neither the NHS Hierarchy nor their political masters could ever be goaded into acknowledging.

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 doesnt 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 CRUs 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. MM2004s 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 worlds most powerful military; this pitiful, annoying pipsqueak of a man who would not make a pimple on a privates *** 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 120) 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 11bn per year by the end of the parliamentary term. That adds up to a quarter of the annual target of 40bn 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 250 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 billions 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.

New EU Tax Laws Force Thousands of Businesses to Close in Just Six Months
Our editorial policy has for years been to expose the EU for the anti - business, anti - democracy European wing of the Global Government cartel. And let's be honest, a quick browse through our Europe index will provide plenty of evidence to suppport our view. Given the and their collectivist dupes' talent for ignoring evidence however, every hammer blow we can strike that exposes their global, totalitarian, bureauceatic dictatorship will help get the message across.

How Google Destroyed the Internet
The idea of the internet was that it would be a communications tool that freed information by making all public domain documents, libraries and archives accessible for everyone. Unfortunately the corporate monopoly men of Google, Microsoft, Apple, Amazon and Facebook and political control freaks had other ideas. They also understood the technolgy while the hippies and liberals ignored professionals warnings that internet systems would become a perfect toool of censorship.

In the biggest single-day rescue operation to date there were no reports of casualties. Reports have been coming in however of hundreds of life jackets and other items being washed up along a stretch of coastline, which suggests the naval rescue flotilla may not have reached al the stricken boats in time.

So Who Are The real Racist Bigots - Those Who Have Opinions or those who would abolish free speech?
Since we began publishing in 2009 we have warned that the real enemies of freedom, the ones who would turn certain sectors of the community are not the conservatives and libertarians, but those who try to mask their fascistic politics by calling themselves left, liberal or socialist. If you want to know what socialism is really all about read up on Stalinist Russia or Maoist China and if you want a comparison for the 'liberal values of Labour and Social democrat voters in Europe or American democrats, look no further than the medieval Inquistion and their brutal purges of 'heresy'.

TTIP in the EU: Rejecting Democracy
Trade deals have traditionally been about lowering particular tariffs for imports and exports of goods from one country to another. Trade is not as simple as that any more and for TTIP tariffs are a tiny part of the negotiations because tariffs between the EU and US are virtually non-existent these days.

Ending the Ownership of Money
It must be common knowledge by now that some of the world’s most economically powerful nations are insolvent due to the burden of sovereign debt.

The last ice age ended approximately 12,000 years ago, and since then we’ve been enjoying a pleasantly warm “interglacial period.” But given that an interglacial may last only 12,000 years, we’re confronted with a scary prospect: Another ice age may be nigh.

How Ironic That Humourless Warmageddonists Will Not See The Irony
I've lost count of how many times this blog has highlighted the extraordinary consistency with which politicians and scientists working in concert manage to achieve the exact opposite of what they are aiming for. One might be tempted to think that the first step in proposing a scientific solution to any problem is to first understand what harm the unintended consequences of your solution might cause.

Saying The Unsayable
Watching BBC Question Time last Thursday, I was struck once again by the way it was left to one of the stock hate figures of the left, Melanie Phillips, to actually pronounce the great, clunking truth that the online activities of left wing hate mobs have rendered unsayable.

America and UK Lead the World in Climate Scepticism Several times now it has looked as if the climate chance scare was over as the enthusiasm of climate scitentists for changing real world data to fit in with the predictions of their mathematical models has been exposed. But as the scare was never about the environment, but was a scam to redistribute wealth from rich to poor countries, the politicians are throwing their propaganda budgets behind it again.

Sham Marriages To Beat Immigration Laws Are Out Of Control
With main immigration news on being dominated by the Mediterranean boat people crisis and the masses at Calais hoping to stow away in a freight container, we forget that another way of getting somebody into the country is the sham marriage. Numbers involved may be small, but it is another indication of our governments' failure to address the immigration problem.

Mediterranean Immigrant Composite
The flow of undocumented migrants from Africa trying to cross the Mediterranean from the coast of Libya to Italian, Greek and Maltese territory seems unstoppable. Two factors in the problem however have been western (particlarly American meddling in the internal affairs of African states, and wester aid leading to a population explosion national infrastructures are unable to cope with.

New EU Tax Laws Force Thousands of Businesses to Close in Just Six Months
Our editorial policy has for years been to expose the EU for the anti - business, anti - democracy European wing of the Global Government cartel. And let's be honest, a quick browse through our Europe index will provide plenty of evidence to suppport our view. Given the and their collectivist dupes' talent for ignoring evidence however, every hammer blow we can strike that exposes their global, totalitarian, bureauceatic dictatorship will help get the message across.

The Financial Times Calls for Ending Cash, Calls it a “Barbarous Relic”
Earlier this week, as the financial world was in turmoil following a rapid crash and recovery in financial markets.

How Google Destroyed the Internet
The idea of the internet was that it would be a communications tool that freed information by making all public domain documents, libraries and archives accessible for everyone. Unfortunately the corporate monopoly men of Google, Microsoft, Apple, Amazon and Facebook and political control freaks had other ideas. They also understood the technolgy while the hippies and liberals ignored professionals warnings that internet systems would become a perfect toool of censorship.

Venice Mayor Bans ‘Farce’ Gay Pride Parades

Luigi Brugnaro told Italian daily La Repubblica “there will be no gay pride in my Venice”, describing the event as “a farce” and “the ultimate in kitsch”.

It Looks As If Carbon Credits Scam Has INCREASED CO2 Emissions
As the climate change scare becomes more and more exposed for the money making fraud it always was, they green weirdie beardie, rope sandal wearing tree huggers get more hysterical and stupid in their arguments that we must all return to medieval lifestyles, the billionaires like Al Gore who hope to profit from it keep flogging the dead horse and the angrier and more vicious the left wing hate mobs become in their witch hunts.

3,000 Migrants Rescued off Italy in Single Day, Tensions Rise
Italy’s coastguard on Saturday led an operation to rescue around 3000 migrants from the waters of the Mediterranean after distress calls were picked up from more than 20 overcrowded vessels drifting in waters off Libya.

Trump catches attention of CFR, Bilderberg, Trilateral

Donald Trump is portrayed as a clown by mainstream media and his combover is the silliest I have ever seen. Still, he's a billionaie so I don't suppose he gives a flying fuck what The Daily Stirrer thinks of him. Not that we think he is all bad, anyone who attacks Obama's global naziism trade deals, TTIP and TPP mush have some good points.

Britain to Crack Down on Illegal Working by Migrants

Is Russian Army Beginning to Engage in Syria
Those of us with eyes to see and ears to hear (h/t some bloke called Jesus) have know of the involvement of US troops in Syria for a considerable time. Given that the American military are active in over a hundred nations around the world, Washington's meddling in the domestic politics of soveeign nations comes as no surprise. It is more disturbing to learn that Russian troops are getting involved in Syria, to support Assad in his struggle against American - backed revolutionaries ...

Americans Don’t Know that the Rest of the World Views U.S. as Biggest Danger, Rogue State

Americans are stupid, right? Well it is a generalization and generalisations are usually both right and wrong. Not all Americans are stupid of course, I know many who are very intelligent and highly articulate. But as in Britain, France, Austrilia, Russia, Germany, China etc. there are stupid people in America. What we mean however in saying Americans are stupid is that overall American citizens tend to be less well informed on current events and general knowledge that Europeans, Asians and South Americans...

Germany Opens Gates, Welcomes ALL Syrian Asylum Seekers: Urges UK To Do The Same

Germany has thrown open her doors to Syria, declaring it will welcome all that country’s asylum seekers.

Germany will now cease handing out forms which ask new arrivals to declare where they landed in the EU.

Get Ready For The Collapse Of The Global Economy
In the years we have been publishing, Daily Stirrer financial correspondent Phil T Looker has consistently predicted the refusal of the market rigging banksters to acknowledge that the developed worlds debt driven economy was FUBAR might delay the economic catastrophe but that would only make the final collapse worse when it eventually happened.

U.S. Sheriffs fed up as 25 Americans are killed each day by illegal immigrants

Thousands of people in the UK will this weekend to protest against the “corporate stitch-up” known as Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), which has been negotiated in total secrecy between the European Union (Euronazi) bureaucrats in Brussels and for Washington, corporate lawyers working for the global conglomerates that own The Obama Administration ...

TTIP Corporate Stitch Up And Revival Of The Loony Left Poses Existential Threat To Nation States
The same threat is coming at us from left and right. A radical shift in direction in this article you might think, I would defend my pov by saying that two threats that seem to come from different directions are in fact the same threat, authoritarianism, and we are in danger of being caught in a pincer movement.

Greece’s bailout is about helping big business, not Greece’s people
One again we have to report how the bean counters of Brussels, the nasdty, vindictive little Nazi shits who sit in luxurious office and dream their wet dreams of global domination, are hellbent on destroying Greece and humiliasting its people.

Israel Shells Syrian Positions On Golan heights
Israel has launched artillery attack and airstrikes on the Syrian army positions. Tel Aviv says the attacks were in response to rocket fire from the Golan Heights.

Google Algorithm Poses ‘Serious Threat To Democratic System’ How evil are Google really. Most people cannot even begin to imagine.

Rioting Asylum Shelter Inhabitants Scream ‘Allahu Akbar’ as They Attack Police
Not long ago, with this page getting too long we had to make a separate page to cover how Sweden's loonytoons immigration policy is rapidly turning that once enlightened, liberal nation into a lawless, dystopian failed state. It seems we will soon have to do the same with Germany, where the anger German citizens at they way they are being marginalised as their government prioritizes the interests of migrants, many of whom are in the country illegally.

One drink a day increases the risk of breast cancer by 15 per cent, scientists claim
Another example of pseudo scientific scaremongering from Harvard University's Department Of Cutural Marxist Propaganda, using spurious statistics (when they cite risk they do not mean 15% but 15% of 13%) in supprt of liberal / left wing politicians anti alcohol campaign, which is not about health but an excuse to raise taxes. The whole house of cards is demolished here by a writer who really understands statistics and is not ingornant of human nature.

German Government Admits it Got Refugee Figures Wrong… Revises Upwards to 750,000 Migrants Expected This Year

The number of migrants crossing the Mediterranean and making their way (illegally) through the Balkans to Germany has passed the government’s worst casse estimates. The unprecedented influx has now forced Berlin to hastily revise the figure upwards. Although the German government had already acknowledged the need to revise estimates, the latest number is beyond all expectations ...

Labour Leadeship Contest, Corbyn Comedy Caper
When Labour elected Ed Miliband as their leader in 2010 it was clear the party had a death wish. The 'broad church' Prime Minister Harold Wilson spoke of in the 1960s, the alliance of intellectuals and socially conservative industrial workers who made up the party's core vote managed to coexist. Then came feminism, politically correct thinking, New Labour factions as the party started to tear itself apart. It looks as if we are in the endgame.

Food health fascism: Salt, Sugar, Saturated Fat, Alcohol, Cheese, Fizzy Drinks, Chocloate, ... if you enjoy it, it will kill you - maybe.
We are all familiar with those health scare stories that seem to pop up in mainstream media at least once a week claiming this that or the other will kill us. Few people spot the irony in that a few days earlier the same sensationalist rag will have carried a story under a similar screaming headline, claiming that scientists have found the stuff being demonised is in fact good for us ...

Another Big Lie About Ukraine’s War
When the army of the DNI [commonly called Ukraine’s ‘rebels’] are retired Russian military, the West immediately writes about "Russian aggression". And if retired (believe that retired) military mercenaries from the EU are fighting on the side of the APU [commonly called the Ukrainian government], why do the same media not write about "the aggression of the European Union?"

Massive Explosion in China: Do We Know the Full Story?
The massive explosion at a chemical plant in the city of Tianjin in northern China was a shocking eveny by any standard. But as usual in recent years, once the initial horror recedes the unfortunate accident narrative starts to unravel. The first thing we notice is that the disaster is very convenient for certain parties, the second is that official news reports just don't make sense, and the third is that eye witness reports contradict the edited news stories. Now read on ...

Syria opposition in Russia for talks on on Moscow - Damascus anti-IS coalitionSyria opposition in Russia for talks on on Moscow - Damascus anti-IS coalition
Syrian politicians opposed to the Assad regime, but against Islamic fundamentalist groups will be in Moscow this week to take part in talks on a Russian plan for a new anti-jihad coalition that would see Syrian President Bashar al-Assad continue as leader of his country.

Philo and Sophia - The Page For Lovers Of Wisdom
You might find some of the more bizarre fringes of philosophy and thought from history and from around the world here here, among the original thinking of our contributors.

Ugly Marxist Lesbians Demand Right To Menstruate In Public
The story of the militant femists munter who ran a marathon on the first day of her 'monthlies' without using a tampon or sanitary towel (they're a sexist symbol or the oppressive patriarchy donchakow) is not new.

While we watch Unkraine and Turkey The War Goes On In Syria

"Big Brother State": FBI Says Citizens Should Have No Secrets That The Government Can't Access
The surveillance state predicted in George Orwell's novel "1984" has gradually crept up on us. With no sense of irony, the government of the nation that calls itself "The land of the free" has led the way in trying to persuade citizents that the only way they can be safe from vague and largely fictitious "existential threats to democracy" is to surrender civil rights and freedom to determine our own destiny ...

OSCE saw no military hardware, weaponry crossing from Russia to Ukraine – mission head

Russia Just Sent out a Message NATO Should Better Listen To

Kent Council Turns Retirement Home Next Door to School into Asylum Centre
