  1. They did in fact default on reparations, so France occupied the Ruhr in retaliation. This led to a massive campaign of civil disobedience and a general strike in that area. The Weimar government started printing money to pay social benefits to the strikers, and to make up for the 30%+ shortfall in tax revenue. With hindsight, the French sowed the seeds of their own destruction with this course of action. Read "When money dies, the nightmare of the Weimar collapse". The whole book free on the Mises site.
  2. For the record, I am SNP and hate the way Scotland was run like a one party Stalinist state by Labour and the Scottish media.

  4. ARRIVA.......Bus Company AVIVA.........Norwich Union AREVA........GEC Not very original these "creative" types !!!!!!!
  5. Sorting through some old documents for a relative, I noted the following...... 1960, newbuild, Central Scotland, bought at £2,200 1975, sold at £10,200 Thats 463% inflation, and much more than the 300% on my own house from 1992 to 2007. Also noted initial interest rate was 11%. Astounding.
  6. VP, BBC is to ZanuLabor what Sinn Fein is to the IRA. You must have heard about the revolving door between the two. Even our Home Secretary stays in her (BBC reporter) sisters spare bedroom.

There are hundreds more, all in key editorial positions.
  7. Operation Market Garden, Sept 1944, captured Rhine Bridge at Arnhem.
  8. Today may be the opening shots in the counter-offensive. We have survived Dunkirk, the Blitz, Barbarrosa and U-boats. We fought back at Stalingrad, Kursk and Alamein. We landed in Normandy, and fought across France to the banks of the Rhine. Now comes the Battle of the Bulge. 1% rates Halifax blip Green shoots media campaign Stamp Duty holiday All coming your way. Will they run out of fuel again ?
  9. You couldnt make this up. Myners, Rushbridger, Toynbee &Co. , (Guardian luvvies) all are into tax avoidance in a big way,.......see Guido.
  10. Dont worry, Ian Hislop will tear him a new one in Private Eye over this sycophantic dross. Rupert Murdoch is just making sure he gets to loot the sinking ship before Admiral Broon takes it doon.
  11. Cosseted, ivory tower academic posts, disconnected from the real world are not jobs.
  12. The BBC is full of her type, Dazzling Looks Sounds Clever Middle Class Middle England Ski holidays Gap year Uni to Media without a real job Stephanie Fiona Bruce Natasha Any more ?
  13. You mean like HAMISH MCTAVISH (who left on the caps lock when registering) ? See Guido Fawkes for details of Dolly Drapers response team.
  14. Hamish joined the Forum in early Dec 2008, around the time Derek (Dolly) Draper was recruiting bloggers to work for NuLab, and has easy access to lots of official stats and soundbites. (.....See Guido for details). Coincidence ?????????
  15. Aye right ! Every house transaction is a chain leading back down to the FTB. For everyone in the chain to "release" equity, the chain has to complete right down to the bottom. Thats why prices will always relate to average earnings. At the moment, the chain is waving about in mid-air looking down a long way to connect to the first link. Off topic, but who is going to fork out 10-20k in transaction & moving costs on a falling asset ?????????
