  1. Now you are Trolling me. He made a post which everyone apparently 'misunderstood' he then concluded that this was because everyone was too thick to read his post properly. I took the p*ss because the previous day he had ripped me for 'stating the obvious' Clearly some people are quite happy dishing it out, but cannot take it. Disagreeing with someones point of view or poking fun at intellectual snobbery should not be cause for upset or offence IMO but if I ever GENUINELY upset or offended anyone then I am prepared to apologise. I don't post here with the intention of causing people grief, I just enjoy a heated debate. Personally I never learned anything by only being prepared to engage with people who agree with me.
  2. More ad hominem. You basically just called everyone, myself included idiots because you didn't explain yourself coherently. Now you are attacking me for pointing this out.
  3. If that is what you genuinely believe then fair enough. It's just that every other attempt at creating a European superstate has ended badly and the parallels with the 1930's are pretty terrifying IMO. Lets hope you are right and I am wrong.
  4. Well if you know what I am like that is probably because I take great pains to explain my position clearly And the way I apparently derail and trash threads is by challenging the left wing Groupthink that seems to be gradually dominating this site now we have a Conservative/Lib Dem government, although I notice the mods have now started putting some of the more overtly left wing political rant threads straight into off-topic. At the end of the day, If you want a debate, then you have to be prepared to tolerate and engage with those who hold an opposing viewpoint. Of course if you don't want a debate then I am a Troll.
  5. I probably shouldn't ask, but what exactly is the significance of the Ka in this post?
  6. Wow, I'm going to have to give you a +1 for this. That's two posts in one day What is the World coming to???
  7. If you read all my posts you would know I am married. And you had a chance to engage but decided to insult me instead. However, as well as being extremely annoying I am also extremely reasonable and tommorrow is another day
  8. Well where I live I just see the numbers going up and up including mothers with kids in pushchairs and lots of old people who are presumably grandparents. Personally I have nothing against Polish people at all but the community I grew up in has gone, probably forever. I also foresee huge social divisions and conflict in the not too distant future sadly. Britain is actually becoming Balkanized IMO and the consequences will cause decades of misery for everyone.
  9. Can I ask you a serious question then? Do believe that Germany has accepted the post WW2 territorial settlement in East/West Prussia? Do you believe that Danzig will remain Gdansk and Konigsberg will remain Kaliningrad forever? Because my feeling is that 500,000+ Poles have come to the UK because they believe that trouble is coming. Personally I can foresee Germany and Russia carving up eastern Europe between them within the next couple of decades.
  10. Well the Blairites certainly didn't which is why Nu Labour lost. It's like a game of pass the parcel bomb Whoever is holding the parcel when it goes off will be wiped out politically for generations.
  11. You said 'I get the feeling that many reading my post fail to understand its meaning. I'm setting out why 'they' think it works with certain false evidence to back their views up. Try and read a bit more intelligently guys.' So basically you think we are all too thick to understand what you meant whereas most people here would have apologized and explained themselves more clearly. And you are now clearly Trolling me.
  12. Personally I won't have cavity wall insulation as air is an extremely good insulator and the cavity is purpose designed to stop damp penetration plus any material that holds dampness in the cavity could corrode the wall ties leading to expensive remedial work being required
  13. Or they could add a few Zero's Then we'd all be millionaires!
  14. My nephews partner is German and she just became a British citizen and none of the 500,000+ Poles who fled here will ever go back because if they do, chances are they will not get the opportunity to escape again. Perhaps they read too many history books?
  15. You said. A piece of paper 'makes society richer' because it enables activity to take place which otherwise wouldn't. It avoids the natural collapse of demand and default. Did you not? Well they have printed and demand has collapsed so what is YOUR explanation, for this? To be honest don't bother. Everyone didn't 'misunderstand' your post because they are too thick to read it properly they 'misunderstood' your post because, if you were intending the opening statement to be ironic you failed.
  16. Hilarious! You think they actually want to win the next election? Seriously?
  17. Ok You are suggesting that printing is a good thing because it forces people to spend which in turn stimulates the economy. You have also recognised, however, that it leads to asset price inflation which favours the asset rich, so you feel that this unwelcome side effect should be tackled via taxation. Your original assertion is standard Keynesian pump priming but you have recognized one potential problem and suggested a typically socialist solution. Two problems here, firstly the people you are forcing to spend their savings rely on the interest from their savings as an income therefore the more you try and force them to spend via inflation, the more they will be forced to cut back on spending. Secondly, we have reached the limit of what can be raised by taxation in this country so the more taxes are raised the lower overall revenue becomes. So both measures, printing and increasing taxes are actually causing the opposite effect you are hoping for and are resulting in STAGFLATION. TPTB like QE because it does exactly what they want it to which is transfer wealth from us to them while eroding the liabilities of the state via inflation. And they - Lib/Lab/Con don't give a toss about inequality
  18. We currently have a trade deficit with the EU. I'm sure Volkswagen, Audi, BMW and Mercedes would lobby hard for the EU to impose a trade blockade on an independent UK. Perhaps you could try reading about the Continental System which ended with Britain becoming the World's first global superpower. Anyway, I wouldn't worry because there is absolutely no way on Earth that we will get a vote on leaving the EU before the whole rotten edifice collapses under the weight of its own inefficiency and corruption. We know what the Germans are up to, they know what we are up to. Both of us know the game is up - but we want them to get the blame and they want us to get the blame.
  19. Hilarious! The Oh Dear was for the reaction you got when many people misunderstood your post after you constantly rip me for 'stating the obvious'
  20. This is why I am so p*ssed off most of the time. I have 3 kids and the best thing would be for them to leave the country for good and abandon me and Mrs GameOver to the tender mercies of the 3rd World NHS and elderly care system we now have in this country. This is also why I am so p*ssed off with people who keep telling me the articles in the Daily Mail are all lies and propaganda and then leave themselves for the very reasons highlighted by the Daily Mail. WTF??????????????????????????????????
  21. My angle is, a huge proportion of Independent / Guardian readers are hypocrites of the first magnitude.
  22. Perhaps you should have been a bit clearer in your statement of the obvious then everyone else wouldn't have misunderstood what you were getting at.
  23. A little bit about Switzerland for any other left-wing, anti-capitalist, anti-banker posters who are thinking of moving there for a better life. SWITZERLAND is not often thought of when we discuss the welfare state. In many respects it is not a welfare state. There is, for example, no national health service and most of the population is covered by voluntary health insurance. There is also no central program to provide a minimum guaranteed income for all of the population (other than for the aged and infirm) as found in England, Norway, and Sweden. Unlike the major European welfare states, the Swiss federal government defers in much greater measure to local autonomy. But in one critical respect it has achieved what the United States and European nations traditionally defined as welfare states have not: It has all but eliminated “welfare dependency,” or intergenerational poverty, and it has done this in a strikingly different manner than other developed societies. Whether Switzerland has lessons to offer the troubled welfare states of Europe or the United States is another question. But first, let us describe how Switzerland deals with the poor, and how it shapes policies to encourage self-sufficiency and to prevent the development of dependent people in its population. If the Daily Mail could invent a country, It would be a carbon copy of Switzerland!
  24. You probably won't see this because I imagine you have me on ignore by now but this really does take the biscuit.
