Daily Stirrer contributors write from the heart and shoot from the hip on all the topics that are making news, we give praise where it is due but our job is to expose the deviousness, duplicity and dishonesty of those slimeballs and scusockers who having attained power behave as if the world exists for their convenience. The writers will tackle business and politics, bureucracy, health society, science and technology. education, transport and any other issue where the media conspire with the money men to make sure the difficult questions are not being asked.

Another Montauk Monster? Mystery Creature Washes Up On California Beach.
No matter how much the science tits and worshippers of reason, logic and order may hate it, the world had a habit of regularly throwing up mysteries for which there is no simple, logical explanation, for instance, several carcasses of as strange creature that looks to be a dog / seal mongrel have washed up on American beaches in the last few years. WTF is it? That's a question for the people who look after The X Files.

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. Its followers are prepared to destroy not just themselves but the entire human race and most life on earth before they will admit there is little substance in their dogmas, which are all based on 'evidence' from idols they call mathematical models, rather than on any real world evidence.

CO2 vs Temperature comparison over 400,000 years shows CO2 and warming are not linked
Scientists who are part of the 'Science Is Settled' mob are quite adamant that there is no room for discussion, that climate change is caused solely by marginally increased levels of the trace atmospheric gas Carbon Dioxide is proved beyond doubt. Unfortunately their 'proof' exists only in mathematical models, studies based on real world evidence constantly disagree

Obesity pill to ‘replace treadmill’ being developed by Harvard University
A magic pill which burns away excess body fat has been one of the wet dreams of mad scientists for decades. Such a pill is now being developed at Harvard University. Researchers claim it could one ‘replace the treadmill.’ (This is daft as we still need exercise to maintain a healthy heart, muscles and bones.

Everything The Science Whores Told You About Eating Fat Was A Lie.
We have been telling you so for years, but at last the world seems to be cathing up with The Daily Stirrer. Another independent study confirms that the scientists ('A sack of rogues bought and paid for with corporate gods' to paraphrase Burns) have been lying about the health risks of eating saturated fat. It's process vegetable fat, created in laboratories by scientists and other synthesized foods that damage human health.

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. The second part, which is more revevant to the 21st Century is a rant against the superiority of the upper class 'Fabian' socialists who have hijacked the Labour movement and whose Paternal Liberalism is in almost all ways more repugnant that the uncaring attitude of the old elite.

What Will It Take to Get You to Swallow GMO and Nanotech Foods?

Are you one of these "new technology rejecters"? Apparently you will be given such a label soon if you don't want GMOs or nanoparticles in your food, just as those who ask can the 1.6% contributed by human activity of the carbon dioxide that makes up 0.025% of the atmosphere really be the sole cause of the changes in our climate which has been constantly changing for millions of years before men first stood erect.

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 ...

Why Food Sovereignty Should Not Be Handed To GMO Biotech Corporations
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.

Change You Can't Believe In
by James Dahlberg

Guest blogger James does not have his own blog but like Ian T. was recently thrown off a big, pretentious U.S. newsblog after posting a long comment challenging claims made for a dodgy health product. It seems the blog owners do not agree with James and Ian that product placement has no place in what is presented as factual reporting James is on another topic here however. For his first contribution to The Daily Stirrer he looks at how the popularity of Barack Obama, the Yes We Can" man has collapsed from the record levels seen right after his inauguration as President to the latest polls that make him the most unpopular president ever after a year in office. The economy, unemployment, the disatrous health reform bill and weakness on foreign polcy have played a big part but how much is due to the failings of man himself... read all Change You Can't Believe In by James Dahlberg

Dawkins Censors His Critics
by Xavier Conolly

Professor Richard Dawkins, Elder of the One True Church of Atheists has caused a storm among his internet forum fan base, his base fans and all the stuff that hits the fans by announcing that postings on his website will henceforth be tightly moderated. To some extent we sympathise with Dawkins, while his position on religion is bordering on zealotry he is often held responsible for the Nazi tactic employed by some of his supporters who are determined the right of free speech will not be extended to people who dispute their point of view.

26 February 2010 Lib Dems Must Vote Labour - Says Senior Labour MP
by Ed Butt

Labour has played a nasty undemocratic trick in every election for as long as anybody can remember. They spread fear and panic about the misery and hardship Conservative policies will cause and then warn supporters of the Liberal Democrats that by supporting their party of choice, the party that most closely reflects their views, in a democratic election they will let in the evil Conservatives to wreak havoc with everybody's standard of living except that of the wealthy and privileged.

This time the task of spreading this wicked lie on behalf of the party of authoritarian control freakery is that permatanned piece of poo Peter Hain. Yes that's right Hain, the shit who billed the taxpayers for his Sky TV subscription and a tree surgeon to ten his garden and has the nerve to call the Tories money grubbing scumbags.

I will be voting Lib Dem or Green even though in the constituency where I live my vote never means anything. I believe in democracy you see and democracy has nothing to do with being told how to vote by a scummy little creep who while he presents himself as a leftie is well to the right of Margaret Thatcher and every bit as self interested as those African Village Tyrants who shaft the west for billions in aid to feed their starving nations then stash the lot in their own Swiss bank accounts.

The Daily Stirrer would not presume to tell you how to vote. We will remind you however that every time we have had a Labour government, for all their talk of fairness and redistribution of wealth the rich do very well and the poor end up poorer

Think Lib Dem Vote Labour Says Hain Hain's article here is hypocritical arse dribble. The comment thread is great though

Getteing Hot Under The Collar About Homeopathy
by Ian R. Thorpe

This will only be a short post on the hot topic of Homeopathy linking to an article by a mainstream media journalist who is asking the same questions as I have about why the science lobby get so heated at the mention of homeopathy. Let me say here though I have never used homeopathic remedies nor do I ever intend to. Although several people of my acquaintance swear by the technique the arguments are not convincing in my view.

Strangely, every time we mention homeopathy on our satirical journal Boggart Blog although it is given the same disrespectful treatment as politics, banking, celebrity culture and any other topic that is in the news, among the comments there will always be a few from people who seem convinced that because the word "homeopathy" or anything related to it does not drive is into a spluttering, spitting rage as we bluster about "unscientific mumbo jumbo" we must be supporters of homeopathy. What makes us suspect there is an agenda being touted by such organised groups is the ferocity of their attacks not only on homeopathic practitioners and users of the medicines but on anybody who expresses even a neutral position on the subject.

This is becoming an attitude we encounter more frequently among member of the "progresive left" and the type of people who preface their comments with phrases like "I'm a scientist," or "if you were a scientist." The Daily Stirrer believes we are all entitled to our opinion. If you like homeopathy and believe it works for you fine, we would love to hear from you but have decided not to invite comments due to the "scrubbing" of the net by cliques promoting an agenda. We would love to hear from people who think there is no validity in the claims of homeopaths too, but for the fact that most of them assume anybody who does not agree with them is an idiot.

We also don't like the way these crypto fascists who like to call themselves liberals will target a blog en masse and try to shout down the individual and idiosyncratic ideas it is expressing.

Homeopathy is neither very big nor in the scheme of things very important. Why does it then excite such passion among the "science is god" faction of the medical and academic community. Unless of course they are trying to divert attention from scandals much more deserving of close public scrutiny.

That then is our position on homeopathy and on free speech. For a well informed, bananced view on the argument about homeopathic treatments on the NHS read: This Homeopathy Row Has Nothing To Do With Placebos by Zoe Williams

Another Domino Falls
by Ed Butt

Prospect Magazine, formerly a supporter of the AGW climate science lobby has managed to get a grip on reality and start questioning the dodginess of the science that has been used to justify plans for a swingeing carbon tax on affluent westerners and a system of global governance.

In Too Hot To Handle the editorial discusses the need to be certain of the facts before we commit to spending £$trillions on schemes that are not guaranted to work and often seem more like the fantasies of climate scientists coming down from a bad acid trip than logical and well thought out projects.

We also need to know a lot more about what is going on before we agree to give up our individual freedoms and collective rights and agree to accept orders from a bunch of limp wristed vegan Nazis.

Climate Change Sceptic Gagged By BBC
by Ed Butt

Tell the lie often enough and it will become true went the dictum of Nazi propaganda chiefs. That was not the only technique Hitler's supporters used for impressing misinformation on the minds of the public. They also silenced dissent and stifled those who would speak out against their odious plans.

We know the BBC is in the hands of supporters of the "progressive" left New Labour authoritarian government but what they have done in dumping UKIP MEP Nigel Farage from the Question Time show being broadcast live this week from Middlesborough is in violation of the BBC charter which requires the state broadcaster to fairly represent all views. Farage hsad intended to speak out about the closure of Britain's last great steelworks at Redcar and the blatant corruption involved in its sale to Indian conglomerate Tata International.

Climate Change Indoctrination
by Ed Butt

Have you felt recently that we are being indocrtinated with the message that Climate Change is being caused solely by rising levels of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere and that it is all our fault, us, the punters. We were told the science was "settled" and anthropogenic global warming due to CO2 is a proven scientific fact. Aside from nobody knowing the difference between a scientific fact and an ordinary, everyday fact, the science on the link between CO2 and climate change was never settled, there are many contributing factors but the main one, the one which the Climate Science Thought Police who are a cohort of the Politically Correct Thought Police will never mention is that there are just too many people on the planet.

Raise this issue however, as we have in The Daily Stirrer, and you will immediately be accused by the Climate Change Thought Police of advocating Eugenics. All this proves is these people who like to call themselves scientists and present themselves as much more intelligent that us ordinary mortals do not know what Eugenics means.

The AGW religionists have the support of government and certain big businesses that hope to profit from climate change in their efforts to brrainwash us. Which big businesses? Find out HERE Strangely however it is not the government or the catastrophe capitalists who are footing the bill for a massive PR campaign of indoctrination that employs all the techniques of misinformation, distortion, repetition of lies and threatening messages to get the fearful public bck on message after the recent embarrassments of climategate and the Copenhagen Climate Conference fiasco. Oh no, thanks to the generosity of government it is we, the taxpayers, who are footing the bill for our own indoctrination. Iain Dale's Diary reports on his blog that government funds are being channeled to an organisation with a political agenda and no democratic accountability so they may push back into the public consciousness certain "scintific facts" that have recently been disproved, discredited or shown to be the result of using fradulent data to produce statistics. And read the offending leaflet HERE

Big Business The Enemy Of Free Markets
by Ian R Thorpe

The headline on American right leaning newsblog Pajamas Media caught my eye because although Pajamas has some excellent writers and I always enjoy reading well written arguments that oppose my own views (it keeps the brain well honed) a story under that headline must surely be out of step with the usual stance of supporters of the American free market, low tax, small government right.

It seems at Pajamas at least American Conservatism is catching onto the fact that the political position of the giant supra - national conglomerates has more in common with Stalinist Russia than with the UK's Liberal government under Lloyd George or the Labour administration of Atlee. Corporate politics is not so much the Corporate State as the Nation Corporation but the only real difference is where one serves the party elite the other serves the shareholding elite.

What we saw happening in the crazy days before the credit crunch was the world moving towards a system where the Corporations existed outside national boundaries, they were becoming virtual entities, moving funds and business processes around in cyberspace to evade taxation and regulation. Surely, you are thinking, that is the ultimate expression of free markets. Not so. The corporations with the complicity of governments of the right and left with increasingly authoritarian tendencies are determinedly trying to achieve monopolies and if they cannot gain a monopoly to form a cartel so that smaller, more nimble rivals can be crushed and the market carved up between a few big players.

That is not free market economics at all but it is beloved of social democratic parties in Europe and the USA. Britain's "New" Labour government that has ruled for the past twelve years has always been more corporate friendly than even Margaret Thatcher's Conservatives. The Obama administration appears to be managing the nation for the benefit of Goldman Sachs.

More and more I see among writers of the right and left comparisons of modern governments with the Big Brother regime of George Orwell's novel 1984. People who do write of this are dismissed by the politically correct centre as conspiracy theorists. Anybody familiar with the novel cannot fail to have noticed however the many similarities between governments of the so called "Progressive Left" and the secretive and deceitful regime depicted in 1984 with its propaganda and spin, the obsession with surveillance and the use of fear and panic (Swine Flu, Climate Catastrophe, Terrorism and War) to browbeat people into complicity as their civil liberties, rights of free speech and free movement and even the right to self determination are curtailed in the name of security. Pajamas Media are right Big Business is the enemy of free speech just as big government is the enemy of individual freedom.

The End Of Anthropogenic Global Warming?

Anthropogenic Global Warming, it was a pseudo scientific phrase that always irritated us. With further revelations of data being manipulated, peer reviews from friendly faces being organised and institutional suppression of dissenting voices almost every day the "consensus" that the "science is settled" is dead in the water.

This does not mean the problem of climatechaos has gone away but at least we may be able to set about dealing with the problem in a practical way instead of wasting time and effort on idiotic schemes like carbon trading which could never solve anything and were created specifically for the puropse of making the rich and powerful even more rich and powerful by throwing taxpayers money at them.

Though provoking article (though we do not entirely agree with it) on The End Of Anthropogenic Global Warming at Wolf Howling.

Is Iran Becoming A Military Dictatorship
by John De Roe

If there is one thing we love doing at the Daily Srirrer it is to predict the news months ahead of when it happens. As U.S. Secretary of Stare Hillary Clinton warns that Iran is on the way to becoming an Islamic Military Dictatorhip we can again say 'told you so,' because we predicted last summer this would be the outcome of Barack Obama's meddling in Iran's domestic affairs.

Labour's Orwellian Tendency Out Of The Closet.

In the dying days of Gordon Brown's government labour's "ministry of truth" propaganda managers are becoming more and more desperate to frighten us off voting for anybody else and thus the authoritarian tendencies of The Labour Party are coming furher and further out of the closet...

Killing History In Our Schools And Universities
by Xavier Connolly

“And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed –if all records told the same tale–then the lie passed into history and became truth. “Who controls the past,” ran the Party slogan, “controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.”…George Orwell, “1984?
Yes we are into Orwell and 1984 again. Then news item that has prompted the reference this time is the government's plan to cut funding to history departments. Next year alone funding for the history curriculum will be slashed by almost half a billion, yes billion, pounds.

At the Daily Stirrer we have often highlighted Labour's authoritarian tendency. Just read that quote from 1984 (above) carefully and you see how he attack on history fits into a pattern, "the agenda" you might say. Control information and you control thought, control history however and all the cultural references that support nationhood, bind communities together and form the threads of the national narrative are destroyed. The authoritarian agenda of New Labour comes to resemble Big Brother's regime in Orwell's novel more closely every day.

The government tries to justify this attack on the character, the soul on the British nation, by citing the need to focus our efforts on subjects that will support the economic backbone of the nation in future. These they believe are mathematics, from which very few people have ever made money, and "science" although they are rather coy about which science.

One might argue that few people ever made a fortune from history although vast amounts of money have been made by people like Dan Brown and Mel Gibson from distorting it. Education is not directly about making money however. The purpose of education is to develop children into adults able to take their place in society and become valuable and valued members. There is a little more depth to a quality education than a sackful of diplomas and certificates.

One of the things that stacks up against history in the agenda of the "Progressive Liberals" and their nasty, illiberal agenda is that one of the lessons we ignore at our peril is multiculturalism does not work. Multiculturalism than the politically correct ideology that spawned it are the root cause of the social and economic catastrophe facing the old industrial nations now. These ludicrous ideals dreamed up by Californian stoners in the 1960s have no more to do with reality than the fantasies of Lewis Carrol.

I have spoken at times to my eldest grandchild of school history having been appalled by the politically correct claptrap that informs some of his comments. What appears to be taught in school as British history seems to focus on Africa and the slave trade, painting our nation as the Great Satan that sought to enslave a continent. And of domestic history there seems to be a great deal on the oppression of women and hardly a mention of great British achievements in engineering, navigation, agriculture, textiles, medicine and a hundred other fields.

We have to put a stop to this indoctrination by a small, unrepresentative, undemocratic faction of the political left who have hijacked the Labour party and public services and infiltrated the Liberal Democrats. Teach the facts and let young people make up their minds about the politics later in their lives. It is true that in the past women were treated badly but we should also mention that in the brutal and brutish past men were treated badly too. It is true that slavery was a terrible thing but a crime against humanity perpetrated solely by the British on Africans? Nonsense. Slaves were one of the first commodities traded by primitive tribes, the economic systems of all early civilisations were founded on slavery. And had the African traders not offered slaves to European merchant mariners in exchange for luxury goods no slave trade would have been possible. Instead of being taught to flagellate themselves with guilt about slavery our young people should learn to be proud of the fact that we were the first to abandon the Transatlantic Slave Trade.

Britain has much to be ashamed of in it's past, from King Edward 1's persection of Jews, through Henry VIII's reign of terror, and Elizabeth I's suppression of dissent which set neighbout to spy on neighbour, the horrors of the Civil War right to the present day marginalisation of the working class. Let us not forget though there is much more of which we may be proud.

From the perspective of today things may look bad but that is why we must teach history properly, objectively and without its being tainted by political agendas.

Robin Hood Tax - Global Tax On Banks
by Ian R. Thorpe
Gordon Brown has been busy all week telling everybody who would listen there was "growing universal support' for Barack Obama's idiotic, ineffectual and unworkable proposal for a levy on financial transactions to tax the banks and curb their profligacy as well as stopping them gambling on dodgy investment vehicles with depositors money.

We all despise bankers, we all want to stick it to them for the misery cause by their irresponsibility and greed but few are deluded enough to think that a tax imposed in the USA and among those leaders who remain convinced Obama is a god come to earth cannot succeed. Without the support of the Chinese nothing can succeed.

The problem with Obama, and at first it was a joke but now it is becoming a more serious problem every day, is that he thinks he is President of the World. Those dwindling few who believe this, "the progressive left" as they like to style themselves are the kind of nasty little neo Nazis who would like to and have talked of making a criminal offence of disagreeing with them. This is fine in nations ruled by tyrants but listen to the outraged howls of the "progressive left" when anybody points out that to make climate change denial a crime would be to establish a tyranny.

"We can't be tyrants," they wail, "we're socialists." Yeah so was Stalin. And Hitler as it happens.

Before Sidi Obama has chance to impose his solipsistic agenda on the world, before Gordon Brown, whose mismanagement of the UK economy over the past twelve years, lectures us on the need to support him in implementing some kind of Orwellian Big Brother regime before we can rebuild our nation, before dissent is outlawed and to prevent those things happening we must all take on board these words from Dean William Inge I came across on the excellent Wolf Howling blog.

It is useless for the sheep to pass resolutions in favor of vegetarianism while the wolf remains of a different opinion.

PIIGS Could Put Us In The Shit
by Ed Butt

Branson Warns Of Energy Crisis Bigger Than The Debt Crisis and Rampant Inflation To Come
by John De Roe

Sir Richard Branson is the most prominent voice among a bunch of businessmen warning we face an increase in energy prices that will make the problems of the credit crunch look like a blip on the radar.. The Industry Task force for Peak Oil and Energy Security is predicting a sustained rise in the oil price to more than $100 within five years.

Five years, what planet do they live on?

Over the past year the value of Sterling and the US$ have fallen 25% in real terms, that is against gold and commodities. So far the Euro has fared better but is now struggling because of the sovereign debt crises in Eurozone economies including Greece, Ireland, Spain and Portugal.

That disastrous collapse in the main western currencies will start to filter through to the sometime very soon. Expect not just the price of the fuel your car runs on or you use to heat your home to rise. As the cost of raw materials rises so will the cost of good produced in the west. Food prices are already inflating at an alarming rate and the debt driven western economies will surely be hit by rising interest rates later this year.

When governments were talking of their economies coming out of recession remember The Daily Stirrer was warning of a prolonged slump as the idiotic ideals of the "progressive left" agenda of internationalism and multi-culturalism made us fall guys for China, Russia and the Arab oil states.

If you want to know the truth follow The Daily Stirrer. If you want to live in cloud cuckoo land with Gordon Brown, Barack Obama, Sarko and all the ther pseudo intellectual fuckwit advocates of globalisation follow the sheep.

Mad Jad To Punch The West

by Ed Butt

This Thursday, the 11th February ins the 31sy anniverasry on the Iranial revolution that deposed Shah Reza and installed the Islamic theocracy that has ruled the nation since. To commemorate the occasion Iran's current supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khameini has announced Iran will "deliver a punch that will stun the world."

Now this is most likely an example of the hyperbolic rhetoric favoured by the leaders of middle eastern nations. What else could it be? An attack on Israel? Unlikely as the Israelis are more havily armed and better prepared.

A concerted attempt to drive down the value of the USA dollar by selling bonds in the world markets? The Muslim nations would need the support of China and Japan for that so it is at worst a remote possibility.

A blockade of shipping lanes in the Strait of Hormuz through which a third on the world's oil passes on its way to the industrial centres of the east and west? A possibility because it is one of the few actions Iran could take unilaterally but the Saudis on the other side of the Strait, though a smller nation in terms of population are immensely wealthy and have a modern, well equippied military.

A terrorist attack in the West by Iranian sponsored terrorists. Even the Iranian leadership, as collectively insane as they are, would hardly telegraph that. A terrorsts chief weapon is surprise and fear...a terrorists two chief weapons are surprise, fear and - ah, The Daily Stirrer deals in serious news and comment, not Monty Python's Spanish Inquisition sketch.

So wat might be this "punch that will stun world powers? We reckon Iran's secular leader, the diminutive bruiser Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is going to challenge the putative "leader of the free world" Barack Obama, tall but limp wristed to a cage fight.

Now that would be worth seeing.

Has Labour Politicized The Civil Service?
by Xavier Conolly

An article written by senior Conservative Francis Maude and published by several sources today accuses the Labour government of having politicized the Civil Service. One is tempted to respond "He would say that wouldn't he?" and there is little reason to suspect The Conservatives would behave any differently in a similar position.

There is one memorable point made by Maude however as he excoriates this abysmal government. Attacking the way in which official Government websites have been hijacked to serve the Labour agenda he has this to say:

This week we uncovered another example of this type of exploitation, with Labour hijacking the government's "Backing Young Britain" brand and using it as a recruitment tool on its website, accompanied by the phrase "Only Labour believes every young person deserves the opportunity to a fair chance in life".

Not only do we see the mendacity of Labour and their determination to subjugate everything to "the project" which we can only assume is Orwellian Newspeak for the creation of a Big Brother style regime in which even the most minute aspects of each individuals private life is not free from government control, but we are shown how far removed the Labour leadership is from anything that could be described as reality.

Labour claims they believe every child deserves the opportunity of a fair chance in life but their policies in education have ensured only those children whose parents can afford either to privately educated them or to live in the expensive suburbs that form the catchment areas of high performing state schools have any hope of getting a fair chance in life.

Liberal Democrats Heading For Apocalypse?
by Ed Butt

As we have said before we old gits who write The Daily Stirrer are all former members of The Liberal Party and thus our political sympathies tend to lie with the Liberal Democrats although we have all remained very suspicious of the party's often slavish attachment to the Politically Correct Thought Police ideology of New Labour.

In the past few days Ian has been involved in a discussion at the semi - official Liberal Democrat website Liberal Democrat Voice. One of the bloggers at Lib Dem Voice posted an article attacking Tory Shadow Cabinet Member Chris Grayling for misrepresenting theLabour Government's's fraudulent denial that violent crime has increased. The blogger argued that the conservative interpretation was dishones as the way violent crimes are counted was changed some years ago.

Ian's argument was simply that there is nothing to be gained in whining about Tory dishonesty when the real issue of the election is Labour dishonesty in the way they have used oficial statistics to misrepresent the stae of the economy, crime, unemployment, education, health and everything else. The guy arguing with Ian, someone called John Cartmell seems to think we should all believe all government statistics.

Ian, along with everyone else who lives in the real world believes no one should believe any official statistics ever. One thing is for sure, if Liberal Democrats when canvassing in the election campaign respond to voters concerns about the way the police and government have abandoned the sreets to criminal and anto social elements by quoting "official statistics" claiming crime has fallen the Lib Dems are heading for electoral oblivion.

Now Mainstream Media Turns On Obama
We at The Daily Stirrer have ranted about the real deficit as opposed to the official decicit in the UK. Labour's incompetence and mismanagement has dug us into a sovereigh debt hole we may not ever be able to get out of.
Other nastions are no better off. Spain, Portugal, Greece and Ireland in the Euroone are all in danger of defaulting on debt interest payments while in the USA even the until recently Obama - worshipping mainstream media are turning on the political novice President and demanding he tell the truth on how America's deficit has exploded in the year since his inauguration.

Real Unemplyment Rate
by Citizen Wells

We have written about the duplicitous way the British Government presents unemployment figures, flip - flopping between talking of number of new claimants, number od people claiming jobseekers allowance and the number of new job starts, whicever figure best suits their purpose.

In reality the number of unemployed people is much higher than statisytics will ever show. The situation is very similar in America.

Here Citizen Wells, an implacable pursuer of politicians of all shades who is tireles tracking dow their misdemeanours, hypocrisies and lies, exposes the duplicity embedded in the way U.S. employment figures are presented to conceal the truth of how broken the economy is.

Real Unemployment Rate - More Jobs Lost

As the Daily Stirrer said in a recent comment article, we are heading for a Jobless Economy. Question is, how will we earn our living?

Scientists Are Fallible
recommended by Ed Butt

We get a bit fed up at times of commenting on the latest idiocies of the Science - as - God brigade. Their assumptions of intellectual and moral superiority, their glib assumption that anybody who is not "a scientist" cannot possibly understand this thing called science and their haughty dismissal of reasonable questioning and healthy scepticism has stirred up a lot of opposition.

The Guardian newspaper has become one of the bastions of Science-is-Godism so it is good to see one of the paper's senior journalists taking much the same stance as The Daily Stirrer in advising scientists to climb down from their ivory towers, stop pretending they are infallible and be prepared, when faced with well thought out challenges to admit that while they may not be totally wrong they are seldom absolutely right.

Science thrives in the controlled conditions of the laboratory. Real life has this irritating way of being unscientific.

Labour's Minimum Wage Scam
by Ian R. Thorpe

When you hear of a Conservative politician praising Labour for creating a 'flexible job market' that benefits British employers it does not ring true. What Lord Freud was really praising the government for was letting bosses screw their workers by turning a full time job into a part time job. Not the sort of jobs policy you expect from Labour but we're always said they are more Tory than the Tories...

Authoritarian Box Ticking Culture.

Among the things that have alienated people from the Labour party apart from generakl incompetence, is their arrogant and patronising conviction the public are resady to believe anything the government tells them so long as it is dressed up in statistics and delivered by some fresh faced, smooth talking Labour spinmeister. It is very like the authoritarian regime of Orwell's 1984

The Obama effect on American society seems to be the opposite of what was hoped for. Religious fundamentalism, particularly Evangelical Christianity seems to have more influence than ever while Obama's failure as a politician as well as his having proved a Messiah with feet of clay has divided American society more deeply than ever. We have challenged Obama's policy and American hegemony before, here Ian Thorpe challenges Evangelical Christians...

Beware Of Bonds
by John De Roe

Remember the heady days of Maggie Thatcher's great deregulation and denationalisation when she was destroying indistries right left and centre and her government and friends in industry and The City were telling us all we could make a good living by speculating in the shares of newly privatized national assets? Most people who were taken in lost a packet, my own losses were modest but painful enough.

Well Labour, the most capitalist - friendly government we have ever hasd is getting in non the act. Being a bigger bunch of crooks and liars than even Thatcher's Tories Labour is offering us a worse deal. They want us all to invest our savings in bonds, in otherwords to invest in government debt.

There is more to dealing in stocks and shares than meets they eye which is why the novices lost and the money all went to the bankers and brokers in the 1970s. But shares are simple compared to the complexity of bonds. Learn more of the pitfalls and the devil in the detail here

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.

It's process vegetable fat, created in laboratories by scientists and other synthesized foods that damage human health.

What Will It Take to Get You to Swallow GMO and Nanotech Foods?

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."

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 ...

And remember in bulk food production we are talking about industrial quantities of industrial strength toxins. Scientists on the corporate payroll assure us ...
