The King's Speech-- Merged thread

Recommended Posts

Mervyn King has said that the squeeze on UK take-home pay is necessary.

Has he volunteered to take a pay cut?

I can see fat people being lynched before the year is out by those with rumbling stomachs.

Luckilyfor the rest of the country, you are all little people with no real influence in national affairs.

When you are where you are and you want to get to where you want to get to, you have to do what needs to be done.

SIMPLES!

So it is deliberate then

The whole situation has been deliberate.

The housing boom, the massive debt, inflation and the resistance against wage inflation.

The ruling elite learn't the lessons of the 1970's and have come back for another attack on the working and middle classes.

I'd eat him first, useless tw*t. They did not engineer this, they are always just reacting to what happens. I wouldn't pay them a penny. They've done nothing to earn it.

"Attempts to resist their implications for real take-home pay by pushing up wages would require a response [from the Bank's monetary policy committee]."

As if in the real world, anyone but the banks is able to give significant pay increases (well apart from public sector). He's absolutely clueless and not in touch with what is going on. The economy has gone into reverse and the idiot makes comments like this.

So what he's really meaning is:

I sympathise completely with savers and those who have been prudent during the financial crisis. But screw them.

Correct!

The central banksters have probably never had it so good....... ;)

Why do you want to remind the world to know that the greatest robbery in human history has taken place? Lets just hope the printy printy will replace the stolen goods.

What a tool! Now he has moved his prediction out till 2012 by which inflation will fall back sharply!

How long does he want to buy himself!

This is real wealth being eroded at 5% a year and wages delibaretly held down. Truly flabbergasting figures to read about the UK! Daylight robbery!

"The Bank’s monetary policy objective is to deliver price stability – low inflation – and, subject to that, to support the Government’s economic objectives including those for growth and employment" So says the Bank of England on their website. Seems to me that inflation is a secondary concern behind "Government’s economic objectives".

no its not, this is a fundamental point of this entire economic episode, it isnt and never was real wealth, it has always been debt and unfulfillable promises to meet that obligation, this is by far the most important point that needs to be understood about whats happening

I do not believe we are about to return to the days before independent central banks ushered in a period of

price stability (and wreckless speculation). The Bank of England cannot prevent (we aren't even going to try)

the squeeze on real take-home pay (for the plebs) that so many families are now beginning to realise is the legacy of the banking crisis (paying for the coke snorting city spivs gambling debts)and the need to rebalance our economy (save my banker mates). But we can (no chance really) determine our own inflation rate in the long run, whatever happens in the rest of the world (we are affected and unaffected, uhmmmm, don't think about it!).

It's all relative though. I.e. low, what exactly does that mean?

It is like men and women who like to date 'hot' men and women... their definition of low is different and subject to judgement.

The BoE considers anything less than 100% inflation to be low, 15% inflation exists already today (see petrol and food) thus the are fulfilling their remit completely based on their own judgements. Anything under 100% is fine by them.

What he means is the proles can go fook themselves the elites will continue troughing and getting a pay rises.

He's a very nice man.

The BoE is full of grade A (the swear filter won't allow me to put) but its similar to hunt.

They are aiming to impoverish the people.

A good old fashioned lynching seems more and more likely.

More and more likely as in it's gone from 0.0001% probability to 0.0002% or maybe 0.0003% ?

Will have to wait until people go and learn what inflation actually means and what causes it.

That's never then.

Mervyn Kunt is an outrageous fraud. Clear they are just making it up as they go along. Sadly when he is before any HoC Select Committee he "rules the roost" due to our slow witted, grand standing MP's.

Good man. Let's make 2011 the year of demanding inflation busting pay rises.
