Paul Mason Requesting Tweets For Tonights Newsnight

Recommended Posts

Any tweeters on here want to tell him how to get out of this?

Could be house price related of course if you think it'll get a mention.

I dont know about Twitter, but if you want to forward this to him.

First and foremost, we have to keep the pound, and keep it strong. There is a real danger if we dont do this, then the pound will be replaced by gold as it hyperinflates its value away.

Then we must accept that there is a huge problem of too much debt, and that includes a lot of off balance sheet state obligations, not just PFI, but huge pension liabilities that cannot possibly be paid.

Then in this country, we have a private sector burdened down with massive taxation, which discourages investors from in the UK and abroad investing here and creating jobs and the wealth we need to get out of this mess.

So we need a strong pound, that means raising interest rates.

We need to allow the private sector to invest, and create more jobs, that means lower taxation.

These two policies will lead to the collapse of many banks. That has to happen. Those banks need to be taken quickly into receivership, and that money within them which isnt state protected, needs to take a haircut, both for bondholders and depositors, and turned into equity. Existing equity gets wiped out. They need to be put back on their feet with a huge amount of equity, so those haircuts are going to be pretty large. And bankers who have deceived by their balance sheet must be prosecuted, and their personal assets seized if found guilty.

As taxes need to be cut, the government needs to cut its expenditure. I cannot see how it can meet all its obligations. It would be better for it to default on some of its state debt now. It needs to take a massive axe to state benefits, maybe axing everything except unemployment benefit, and state pensions, perhaps the latter at a reduced level. Wages need to be cut progressively in the public sector. All public sector pensions need a huge haircut, again progressively, with perhaps a 2/3rd haircut at the top level. All foreign wars need to be stopped. All council housing needs to be sold off.

The land registry must register every scrap of land in the UK. Anything not registered should be seized, and sold off if the state cannot make use of it. A land value tax should be introduced, with penal rates for non-UK citizens.

We need to leave the EU immediately, and ensure zero net immigration for a time. It would be good to have a free trade agreement with the rest of Europe.

These changes are pretty severe, but I dont see how we can tinker with things now. It may cause riots, well the course we are on we may get society breaking down anyway. Without law and order, our productive private sector cannot work, and it also cannot work if you tax it too much. Law and order must be maintained.

The medicine is going to be painful, many will lose big time, no matter what choice you make.

The twittersphere is full of metropolitan early adopters and notoriously left-leaning. Funny how the BBC relies on it so much.

Why doesn't he directly ask on here and other places that foresaw the current situation?

These lefties are everywhere, aren't they? BBC, channel 4 viewers, tweeters.

Checked under your bed?

I'll give it a go.

Deploy Trident submarines off UK coast. Fire all missiles. Elevate surface crust of UK into stratosphere. Begin again from scratch.

Probably too many letters. :D

It'd work though, problem solved!

Here's a tweet:

There is no solution. Big state/centrally planned finance is going to fail. I will join you dancing in the wreckage. Adios!

Thats pretty good, only I'd try and squeeze corporatism into there somewhere. It infests everywhere like a weed.

Just right!

Here's another go, with slightly less crowing ( :D ):

There is no solution. Big state/crony corporates/centrally planned finance is all going to fail. Eventually everyone will be a lot happier - which is why it's happening.

You could chop out the "There is no solution."

Only a suggestion! ;)

Small state, small enterprise is the key!

Ever wundered why we have Naval warships on constant patrol in the Caribbean (hint it's got Nothing to do with drug running - that's the smokescreen)

All we need to do is get hold of the various bank databases in the Caribbean and the UK debt problem will be sorted and elite scammers exposed for all to SEE.

That's why all the super-rich go on holiday there - to be close to their 'precious'

Here a Key Klu for you.

11 So God will send great deception upon them and they will believe all these lies.

Vs.12 Then they will be condemned (blamed and punished) for not believing the truth and for enjoying the evil they do.

Well everyone's always saying that the only thing that cleared the last depression was a war.

So we should do something that has the same effect as a war, but isn't !

My vote - the colonisation of Mars.

It would be hugely expensive, and we could ship loads of 20-30 year olds out there.

Heres mine:

Join the Euro. The French took the business of government off our hands in 1066, and it did us a power of good. Now its time to hand running of the economy to the Germans.

William the b'stard (son of a single parent mother) and the others in Normandy were all a Viking sub-cultcha from a couple of hundred yrs earlier when Vikings invaded Northern France.

Even Robert 'the Viking-Norman' Bruce family came from Brix near Cherbourgh, Normandy.

"Robert (grandfather) was a Vi-Norman knight from Bruis/Brix, a castle near Cherbourg, France. He came to England with William I the Conqueror"

Cher-symbollism

(see why Top Masonic Brotherhood invaded that area first - sending in the very first WW2 "USA stormtroopers with 'Mohawk' haircuts (like the Boston T-party Masons throwing T chests into the harbour - dressed as local mohicans 'people of the Flint' - sparking off a war/revolution)

(The long known ecossais French-Scottish connection and why Scots flag was allowed to display french fleur de lis)

Ecossais is French word anagram of 'associate'

Their ruthless genes led to slash and burn of the whole of area above York to Scottish borders where they killed or starved over 90% of the population cos they refused to bow down. The last kingdom to submit to the Normans was in East Anglia.

The Kingdom of East Anglia was founded by the legendary Wuffa, founder of

The Wuffings were Angles and shared a cultural affinity with the Angles who occupied Northumbria.

For five hundred years, from its Saxon foundation until 1075, East Anglia was treated as one of the constituent nations of the English people.

... the old lands of the Iceni tribe, the last to submit to the Romans

The East Anglians were some of the last in England to hold out against the Vi-Norman invaders - Norwich was one of the last strongholds taken!

The fenny webbed feat ones must be Quackers!

In 917 East Anglia was ceded to Edward the Elder, King of Wessex and heir of Alfred the Great, who set an Earl of East Anglia over the Kingdom. The last Earl, Ulfcytel, was killed at Ashingdon in 1016.

The new Danish King of England, Canute, appointed a Jarl of East Anglia until Edward the Confessor appointed an Earl in the form of Harold Godwinson (later King of England) in 1044.

The last Saxon Earl, Harold's brother Gyrth, died at Hastings, but this did not prevent William the Conqueror appointing the Breton Ralph de Guader as Earl.

Ralph was stripped of his Earldom after participating in the Revolt of the Earls against William in 1075 (during which Norwich was one of the last strongholds taken by the Normans)

I like the sound of these Wuffa's. They must have more of a claim to the throne, than the current Saxe Coberg Gotha/Windsors! Certainly great comedy value in the name!

All goes to show that at one time we were all illegal immigrants!

I thought Yorkshire Folk were the last to hold out against the Norman's? And in the end many starved.

[Obviously far tougher than the southern pansies, who allowed the Romans to start a Villa price bubble in the South West.]
