The Real Story Behind Obama's Job Creation

Fall In Industrial Output Dents Recovery Hopes
Shock economc news today was a fall in industrial output in the three months to February 2011. While the decline was led by a 7.8pc fall in oil and gas extraction, due mainly to routine maintenance work, economists were more troubled by the figures for manufacturing which has been leading the recovery and was expected to continue.
Finger Wagging Nanny Points Way To Big Brother and 1984
Few of us hoped for truly great things from the coalition government formed by the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats after we threw out the wretched New Labour poltroons, but we did not expect an extension of the nanny state, more finger wagging authoritarianism and a thought police agenda that would have shocked George Orwell himself from this Big Brother coalition.
The Human Cost Of Our Cheap Fashions
In the west we have lived the good life for many years, taking for granted the cheap clothes and low cost consumer goods we inmport from the poor nations of the third world. There is a hidden human cost of our comforable lifestyles however. Third World workers, clothing workers in particular, are employed under conditions that amount to slavery in everytthing but name. Even so the hand wringing, tree hiuggers of the progressive left are happy to enjoy what's provided by the hardship of those wage-slave workers while lecturing less idealistic people about the evils of Europe's slave trade which ended 200 years ago ...

COMMENTS AND RECOMMENDED READING AROUND THE WEB
In this section we do not necessarily support the views expressed in linked articles but try to give a coss section of interesting and well written articles that we think are likely to stir things up a bit.
Fatties And Smokers Save The NHS Money
We're told, endlessly, that smoking must be even more highly taxed because smokers cost the NHS oodles of money. Further, that salt, fats, junk food, should all be taxed because fatties cost the NHS lots of money. This is nonsense, nonsense on stilts ...
A Polite Debate On Global Warming
After years of arguments, it looked, recently, as though we might be approaching a breakthrough in the debate over whether or not the world has been warming. For the uninitiated, it might seem surprising that this is a subject of debate. Surely of all the questions about climate change – all the future modelling, mankind’s role in it – the ... (great comment thread on this)
Misguided On Social Mobility
Last month, I suggested to colleagues an April Fool for this newspaper, . The cod story was this: a government study has discovered that not nearly enough women, ethnic minorities and 17-year-olds in receipt of free school meals are passing their driving test. Therefore, in pursuit of social mobility, the Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg, has decreed that, from now on, the “fee-paying” British School of Motoring and other driving schools ...
Demonisation Of 'Tea Party' and the Intellectual Bankruptcy Of American Liberals
Can America’s Left stoop any lower than New York Senator Chuck Schumer’s juvenile and hate-filled attack on political opponents today amidst the battle on Capitol Hill over the federal budget? In a floor speech, Schumer, the chairman of the Senate Democratic Policy Committee, referred to conservative congressmen in the House of Representatives, many of them…
This One Will Not Play Well With The Gay Nazis.
Roberto De Mattei, 63, the deputy head of the Italy's National Research Council, claimed that the Roman empire was fatally weakened after conquering Carthage, which he described as "a paradise for homosexuals".

Booze Gives You Cancer
This is the BBC – although it could just as easily be the Mail.
Drinking more than a pint of beer a day can substantially increase the risk of some cancers, research suggests. Note the weasel word, there – suggests.It’s interesting – in a train wreck kind of way – to watch the righteous peddle their lies ...
Osborne Must Act To Stop Britain Being Dragged Down By The Euro Crisis
George Osborne has established a high reputation as Chancellor, and in some ways this is well deserved. The Chancellor is in danger of throwing away all of this achievement, by failing to confront his first great financial crisis. This is the collapse of eurozone, a slow-motion disaster that reached a fresh level of horror on Wednesday night when Portugal held out the begging bowl ...
Nick Clegg Chose Coalition - Now He Must Stop Crying Simon Jrenkins, The Guardian
Oh dear. Nick Clegg has had another Shylock moment, bewailing his lot to the New Statesman. Has a Lib Dem not hands, organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions? "If you prick us," he wails, "do we not bleed? If you tickle us, do we not laugh? If you poison us, do we not die?" The short answer is no, not if you are a minority leader in a coalition. Then you are lower than ...
Clegg Is Right On Social Mobility - Toby Young - The Daily Telegraph
Is Nick Clegg right about social mobility? I’ve blogged before about the limits of what the state can do to promote social mobility and Clegg’s proposals probably won’t do much to alter Britain’s status as “the sick man of Europe” (Michael Gove) when it comes to inter-generational mobility. But his analysis is spot on: the…
The Rise Of The Idiot Left
The mother of idiots is always pregnant” - Italian proverb The sun was shining. The sky was blue. After lunch with two leading journalists, it seemed that all was well in the world. So I was a little disturbed to find that my office had been “occupied” by one of many disparate “direct action” groups…
Mass Media On Egypt, Reporting What We Knew In February
I now understand that the purpose of the mass media is to report on things that don’t fit the agenda only after they have happened and are so blindingly obvious that ignoring them is impossible. Oh yes, and by then it’s also too late to avoid catastrophes. [ ... ]“The secular reformers and twenty-something urbanites at the vanguard of Egypt’s Jan. 25 revolution have found themselves eclipsed. They lack experience and grass-roots networks to compete with the Muslim Brotherhood and other religious groups that have quietly stoked ...
