  1. Substantiation, please. And were these expenses for personal gain or to promote UKIP?
  2. You have a point. But I don't think anyone would claim that capitalism is perfect, especially the amoral capitalism epitomised by today's bankers. However, it still seems to me to be the lesser of two evils. Capitalism creates a large cake from which the elite extract a large chunk, but the remainder allows a share for all - even those at the bottom of the pile. Communism creates a very small cake from which the elite still extract a large chunk, leaving very little for anyone else. Both systems feed the elite first. And there are not degrees of eliteness.

  3. Oh, for goodness' sake! An emotive soundbite with no reasoning or substance. Are you Harriet Harperson?
  4. Personally, I don't think the BNP are racist. They may be culturist, but that's quite different. I'm culturist, too. I'd never vote BNP because I'm a bit of an intellectual snob and I find the BNP a little too ignorant in terms of learning for my taste. But I can understand how they attract those who want only to preserve British culture - and why should they not? What's wrong with British culture (or what's left of it?) Multiculturalism was the biggest mistake ever. It is an impossibility. One either has integration in which case the indigenous culture supercedes immigrant cultures,
  5. Hiding behind opacity does not strengthen your accusation. Where are the rabid racists that you contend inhabit this thread, or this site?
  6. Lucky you! Not everyone gets Dan Hannan at the top of their lists. Some get mealy-mouthed, Euro-federalists. Dan Hannan is a good bloke. But he is not representative YET of the Conservative Party - although he and whatsisname with their book, The Plan have gone a long way to making their ideas acceptable to mainstream Conservatives. Meanwhile, absent Dan Hannam as my MEP candidate, I'm going to vote UKIP.
  7. And who might they be? I haven't noticed any comments from rabid racists? Hve you? If so, please link them.
  8. Along the lines of the philanderer's prayer, then. Make me chaste, Lord, but not today.
  9. A bit off-topic but relevant to Sky News. Don't you just love their alacrity in using Speaker Martin's outburst against Kate Hoey as an advertisement for their Sky News service? I bet Martin absolutely hates it! Every day his nose is rubbed in his personal contribution to his downfall. Great bit of advertising!
  10. Totally dwarfed in terms of genocide by Stalin and Mao Tse Tung.
  11. Thanks for that. If you're correct it'll be Japan 2 but worse. We don't have the savings cushion to make life bearable for the average UK subject. I still think there will be attempts by governments to inflate away debts - I don't know how they'll achieve it but I'd start by looking carefully at stats for any manipulation. Then there could be withholding of stats on grounds of national emergency. I just can't see any government commit electoral suicide by taking the required medicine. Forty years ago that may have been possible but not in today's me-me, instant gratification society.
  12. Who cares? At the moment they're the only game in town for anyone who wants to see Europe develop as a free trade area and not a political union. We all know UKIP will never make it into government. Sure, we could end up sending a few more UKIP MEP's to Brussels but that's a small price to pay. In any case, all EU law is pre-decided by the European Commission and votes by MEPs are just window-dressing. What a vote for UKIP will do is concentrate the minds of those in the main parties that want to have us part of a Federal Europe with Tony Blair as president. They need to start listenin
  13. Sky News: 4/1 that Gordon will be out by 13th June.
  14. FTSE down 98 today. Sounds a bit "spooked" to me. Although who knows the why and wherefore of the fall? It could have to do with the uncertainty of GB's government in meltdown, or it could be due to other issues.
  15. UKIP for me. Until the main political parties address the issue of creeping political union with Europe (when what was initially entered into with voter consent was a Common Market, i.e. a free trade area) little else matters. Westminster is little more than a talking shop when 75% of our laws come from Brussels and are rubber stamped (without examination) by parliament. I could pay a monkey peanuts to use a rubber stamp, so why pay MPs upwards of £60k plus their much abused allowances? Our politicans are pointless while we are part of a European political union, and until we regain the r
  16. The biggest mass murders of the 20C were by communist regimes; Stalin, Mao, and Our Dear Poxy Leader in North Korea - except, the numbers killed by starvation are difficult to come by because of the closed nature of North Korea - just as were the numbers killed by Mao in the Cultural Revolution and The Great Leap Forward (it took decades for the truth to filter out.) They dwarf the Nazi genocides. In any event. why do people not realise that the Nazi Party was Socialist? By my book that makes them left wing, not right wing - or, at least, inhabiting some totalitarian/authoritarian ground wh
  17. Jeff Randall on Sky. Markets don't won't like uncertainty. Foreign investors will be especially anxious. Investors need to know that rules and regs won't be torn up. Looks like even if the Labour party funk the issue, the markets could twist Gordon's arm. I reckon he won't last much longer. Best bet is an autumn election with summer recess for campaigning. Anyone know what are the odds on an autumn election? Could be worth a punt.
  18. So what next? Crystal ball, anyone? At least, best guess.
  19. Apparently a lot of QE cash is leaking out of the country. This means it isn't performing its intended function. I think there's more and worse consequences than that but I can't remember what I read and nor can I work it out from first principles. Perhaps someone could help.
  20. Should be a very interesting PMQ today. Cameron hasn't only got an open goal, he's got half the government team red-carded and off the pitch!
  21. I don't see how Gordon continue now. His government (what's left of it) has lost all moral authority and ability to govern. He will have to call a GE or face a vote of no confidence. I don't even believe a leadersip change will do. It has to be a GE.
  22. No apology needed, but thank you GameOver, anyway. The myth that I and Gameover and others would like to dispel is, imo, one that was perpetuated, if not perpetrated, by a book called "The Limits to Growth" published in the 1970s. Its connections with The Club of Rome are well attested, but thereafter the connections become murky but by no means untraceable to such unsavoury outfits as the Bilderbergers ( Charlie Skelton's Bilderberg Files) if one cares to do the research. To cut a long story short, there is a global intent of the elite to maintain their elevated position through subjugatin
  23. I once got a call from debt collectors about an allged debt of one of my sons who had moved out several years previously. I told him that he was in breach of the Data Protection Act in discussing with me my son's affairs. I never heard another word.
  24. Of course, and that's the correct way to look at the boom/bust cycle. But when you have some megalomaniac in control of the nation's finances, a man who claims to have abolished the natural cycle of boom and bust, and when he is proved wrong goes on to proclaim himself the saviour of the world's financial system as he begins the process of currency devaluation, then you know for a certainty that expediency will take the day. Edited for incorrectly positioned apostrophe.
  25. Who said the initiation ceremony had anything to do with self-inflicted wedgies?
