  1. Fraser Nelson has done a good article on Brown's time over at Coffee House - Why the banks were framed.

    Nelson nicely summarises how Brown met his Waterloo.

    Very interesting is the first comment beneath the article in which TomTom points out that Japan considers Deutsche Bank to be the single biggest threat to the world economy.

    My contract with them as an application developer in Singapore ended yesterday- I resigned at the intolerable circumstances surrounding the role. Quite simply their budgets have been slashed to the bone and are having to cut corners everywhere - unacceptably so in my opinion - causing the remaining staff to take on the responsibilities of those who leave.

    Deutsche Bank are also in the news today - two of their traders in HongKong have been arrested for their part in suspected bribery.

    The culmination of loose fiscal policy over several decades and finally Britain makes it on becoming large enough to crash the global economy, our politicians must be so proud... Better get an expenses claim in for it, surely a consultancy fee claim can be made. At least we have a credible solution... :lol::lol::lol:

    If the UK gets into trouble the IMF doesn't have the funds to bail out the UK without massive printy printy of SDR's.

    Still at least this isn't the first time the UK has collapsed the financial system didn't one of our Kings break the Venetian bankers?

    Britain will have to invade itself to neutralise the threat its WMDs pose to global stability

  3. Many nations decided to burn their own food supply to create bio-ethanol. Very popular with farmers and rural politicians. For example in the US last year they burnt 42% of their corn production.

    Astounding you should say that.

    HPCers may recall the problems I experienced in 2006 in Bali, Indonesia.

    In short, I received a death threat from an Australian expat who, at the same time, claimed to be running a company called Save The Rainforest. Odd, don't you think? You wouldn't expect anyone trying to Save The Rainforest to be the sort of person issuing violent threats.

    Even more fascinating is the fact that he was also running a separate company called Bali Bio Fuels. You'd be right in thinking that both companies have conflicting purposes. Save The Rainforest claims to preserve the rainforest Bali Bio Fuels has need to clear it - for planting bio-fuel crops.

    You might be forgiven for thinking that Save The Forest is a deception, a front company there to give the impression of wholesome goodness and legitimacy. You might be forgiven for thinking that Save The Forest is probably accepting investors' funds under false pretences, possibly even being used to fund Bali Bio Fuels.

    Well, guess what, the Aussie who threatened me in 2006 also threatened his colleague, the Managing Director of Bali Bio Fuels in 2008, the same way he threatened me.

    They are now the worst of enemies. It appears that the Aussie made false and malicious allegations against BBF's managing director, but I strongly doubt this was merely just the usual boardroom schenanigans. Fearing for his life the MD fled Indonesia taking whatever he could.

    Now here's where it gets interesting!

    I have been contact with the MD of Bali Bio Fuels. He is in hiding but in possession of a full set of records for BOTH companies and is prepared to let me have them in my pursuit against the Aussie, provided I help clear the MD's name later. This guy owns a villa in Bali worth several million, so the allegations made against him of theft, on the surface at least, don't stack up.

    I pick up my visa tonight and fly from Singapore to meet him tommorow.

    Exciting isn't the word.

  4. http://www.zerohedge.com/article/chinese-real-estate-bubble-pops-beijing-real-estate-prices-plunge-27-one-month

    Wow if that figure is anywhere near accurate that's one hell of a monthly house price crash. I expect China's monetary policy to be swing about by 180 degrees and is about to become somewhat looser!

    Just for fun what would that figure be if annualised :)

    If prices fell 27% MoM over one year that would mean a YoY fall of a mere 97.7%.

    Or, that is to say that, if a house worth £1 at beginning of the year fell 27% in value month after month, after 13 months it wouldn't be worth tuppence ha'penny.

  5. Thanks to erranta's post earlier here today I looked up Ezra Pound and found some shocking material HPCers will be familiar with at http://www.ety.com/HRP/rev/epound.htm

    Anyone who has seen Bill Still's "Money Masters : How International Banks Gained Control of America" will recognise much of what Pound had to say.

    In the text, Pound mentions the Jews in Singapore. Being in Singapore myself, I recently began to notice evidence of the Jews here just as Pound said, in particular synagogues and the Star of David on many buildings, so much so I searched for 'Jews in Singapore' via Google earlier this week.

    The British were here in Singapore establishing trade colonies, but why were/are the Jews here? Financing trade?

    Pound was discredited for saying some things that now, by the evidence of my own eyes, appear to have had basis in fact.

    PS I am not an anti-semite, I am just curious to know the truth.

  6. Seeing this sort of thing in so many threads

    - why have so many turned their backs on the church and Bible teaching - cos most of it is in there?

    All we have is evil leaders foisted upon us who carry on the work of their predecessors to promote Con-sumerism or War for their Banking 'Globalist' chums.

    Meyer means 'he who illuminates' as in Rothschild (Wadd-esdon Ma-nor/ron)

    Ezra Pound (Poet) was confined to St. Elizabeth's Hospital for the Criminally Insane for Exposing Rothschild's instigation of WW ll

    Why USA is constantly 'at War' - someplace on earth

    "Eustace Mullins’ paragraph from Secrets of the Federal Reserve reveals that the very existence of a standing army guarantees that any nation will go bankrupt simply trying to maintain that army.

    The only way that army will ever make a profit (and make that nation “prosperous” Gulf States etc) is to go to war and steal something big from somebody else (plus, get the benefits of their treasonous perfidy from the bankers who wanted them to go to war in the first place).

    There we have a perfect picture of world history over the last 200 years. And we are still completely ensnared in the mindless madness we have come to know as ‘the way the world works.’

    The thing to realize is the world only works that way because shrewd and wealthy bankers have finetuned a system that guarantees the fantastic profits that come with war by pulling the wool over the minds of the sheeple, who simply can’t understand that they are slaves working for criminal genius masterminds who control virtually every aspect of everyone’s lives."

    "The word emet (אמת, "truth" in the Hebrew language) written on a golem's forehead is one such example. The golem could then be deactivated by removing the aleph (א) in emet, thus changing the inscription from 'truth' to 'death' (met מת, "dead")."

    Masons Met-ropolitan lodges for instance = Golems of your masters (not knowing the full Truth)

    Fascinating stuff.

    HPCers may know that I'm a bit of a Shawshank Redemption buff. Yesterday I was trying to recall the biblical verse that Andy Dufresne quotes to Governor Norton. I thought it was James chapter 8 verse 12 and looked that one up to see what it said. The quotes that I saw, while not what I expected, struck a nerve. While James chapter 8 verse 12 is pitched in typically biblical terms, it nonethless resonates as much today as it did then. While the superstitious hocus-pocus can be taken with a pinch of salt, much of the stuff in the bible reflects the misery many endure now. Its been noticeable that there has been a concerted attempt to discredit the Bible entirely over the last decade or so. While it does contain a lot of nonsense there is also a lot of sense too, so it shouldn't be dismissed completely.

    Interestingly in the Shawshank Redemption, Norton replies "Luke. Chapter 13, verse 35. I've always liked that one." which is actually incorrect; Andy's quote actually comes from Mark Chapter 13, verse 35. Either it was a mistake by the author or was it was an attempt by Stephen King to emphasise Norton's self-contented ignorance and make us despise Norton all the more.

  7. The airport in Rhoose is twelve miles from Cardiff through winding country roads, nestling in countryside on the South Wales coast. Had direct rail or road links been built the airport would have gained prominence.

    Building a new airport between Cardiff and Newport may be a better option given the availability of flat land and the proximity of the M4 and main Swansea to London railway. Relocating the airport there would make it a more attractive prospect to potential passengers in the West of England too.

    Singapore relocated its international airport twice in the space of two decades, firstly from Kallang to Paya Lebar then to Changi.

  8. I suspect most people would lead the happiest of lives if, as in the garden of eden, they never needed for anything.

    Edward Bernays has a lot to answer for; his work lead to the consumer society in which the naive (all too many people sadly) mistakenly believe they must pursue the latest fad; rather than making us happier, consumerism is cause of so much discontent.

    Give anyone the choice of living in paradise or moping about a cold, soaking wet, wind-swept High Street with its buy now pay only 29% APR culture, I am guessing most would choose the former over the latter any day.

  9. We were repeatedly told "this time its different" and they were right without even so much as being honest as to why: "F0ck You Buddy", John Nash's Cold War game theory exercise had taken such a grip on the population they had shrugged off any wisdom they msy have had and also the virtues of truthfulness and caring for the wider consequences of their individual economic decisions. Only one thing mattered: profit through property. Nuclear finance made it possible, the same nuclear finance that had brought Enron, WorldCom et al to catastrophe.

    So rather than coin a new term I'd just like to dust one down I coined at the height of the crisis: enronomy, meaning an economy consumed by deceit, confidence tricks and wilful malfeasance, with dangerously simplistic financials models masquerading as foolproof panacea.

    Enronomy

    Enronomic

    Enronomics

  10. Well, unless your a junkie which most of these are done by. Now lock snapping, that is the normal way of doing it.

    You seem to know a lot about that.

    Anyway, by snapping you are giving away the fact someone has had a go at the lock- because you've destroyed it. You'll gain access for sure but everyone will know it.

    Picks will do the job well if you're patient and they leave practically no indication of entry*, precisely the kind of entry you need for covert work such as photographing evidence and leaving it undisturbed in situ, as in my case.

    *The locksmith who taught me gets called from time to time to do forensic work on picked locks.

    PS One day, just for a laugh he brought this locked safe into the classroom (the client had forgotten the combination), put it on the floor and knelt behind it. He rammed it forward pivoting it on its face's bottom edge. The door came open and he said, with a big grin and thick Brummy accent, "Solenoids!".

    The rest of the class was aghast with disbelief!

  11. So you've had a run in with Murdoch too?

    No-one quite so big, but if in the course of my enquiries I should uncover such evidence on Murdoch HPC shall be the first to know.

    Ironic you should mention Murdoch, the movie 'City of Ember' is on TV here in Singapore right now - and that's all about a corrupt elite keeping the masses in the dark!

    Doncaster 1 Cardiff 3 - fantastic!

  12. Just google: lock bumping. Its scary how easy it is to get through a standard upvc door.

    This advert for a lock company shows lock snapping also:

    Trust me, this is a piece of cake.

    Thankfully the guy whose property I intended to gain entry to is now, as a result of an exchange of emails and phone calls, on my side and I no longer need to risk arrest.

    This guy is in possession of evidence that incriminates a certain antipodean gentleman in all manner of multi-million dollar international crime.

    Funnily enough it turns out this guy and I were shafted by the same Aussie ******* so he's now happy to share the evidence with me. Visit to Mumbai next week shall doubtless be a rollercoaster of one revelation after another. I hope the mother burns.

    PS feather light touch on the tension wrench works best.
