Cheer me up

Recommended Posts

Hammond is going to come up with some contrived ridiculous budget headlines that under the bonnet just screw us some more.

Carney will NEVER raise interest rates and will print more and more money.

Real inflation in the economy coming from high fuel bills will be blamed on private utility companies who will be nationalised by Corbyn. They will not do the simple thing and defend the £ with higher IRs because they would rather protect high house prices than have affordable bills.

Boomers wealth will continue to be protected, and even enhanced by more handouts.

Tell me I'm wrong.

Well how about this.

The Kurds fought ISIS in the hope of having the promises of a independent homeland made to them after the first world war honoured. They had a recent referendum and the tanks are now rolling.

Catalonia have been told to make up their minds by 10:00 today. Tanks?

When the big players think they will not get their money 2007 (1929) will repeat.

We need to wait to see what spooks them, then see if Mr Hammond can calm them down.

There are lots of things going on at the moment to worry our financial overlords.

I dont know Leeds but i do vividly remember Londons early 90s HPC preceded a rolling crash around the south east of a significant magnitude by about 12 months..

It would appear the 'Is Ldn crashing?' thread is finally becoming a reality (albeit at a snails pace) but the govt / boe props will only delay the inevitable for so long.. more interference may just blow up in their faces this time..

They will raise the IR by only 0.25% and temporarily pound will go up then down again. Even IR raising will not control inflation. Inflation will go up and up.

We could be in Venezuela, where people have lost 8kg per person, I know some Venezuelans and they are not that big people.

Walk around the high street... 75% of the population could lose 8kg and you'd not notice...

True but I still think we are better off here than they are.

This is from the Guardian (the irony)

https://www.theguardian.com/cities/2017/mar/01/caracas-venezuela-adapted-constant-violence

Quote

“Everybody does [sleepovers],” says 22-year-old Emiliana Lante. “If you’re at a gathering that ends at 2am or 3am, you’d rather stay in that house because that’s when kidnappers will have enough time to abduct you and ask for ransom.

“I only drive until 8pm,” she adds. “After that time, I stay over at my friend’s home, or my parents pick me up and escort me [in convoy].”

In less than 18 years Chavez and Maduro have changed Venezuela from the dream country for Colombians to a country where having a Colombian passport is envied by the locals - an amazing level of failure.

Venezuela actually. But you are right in a sense because the border is porous, and during the Venezuelan boom times of the 50s-70s a lot of Colombian poor migrated to Venezuela and added to the slums where Chavez originally got his support. Difficult to believe now, but back in those days, Venezuela was the richest country in South America, with the highest standard of living, and skyscrapers in Caracas which were the envy of the rest of the continent. Venezuelans despised other South Americans.

Even in the 90s lots of Colombians wanted to go to Venezuela - amazingly oil is worth now more than it was then in real terms but they are poorer.  Also despite Chavez funding terrorists in Colombia, Colombia is now safer than Venezuela.  Even  BBC (Blair Brown Cameron) were not that incompetent as a government.

Hammond thinks we are all screwed post Brexit, he wont be happy until he has extinguished all hope out of the populace and we get the punishment we deserve for voting leave.

Tell me I'm wrong.

I disagree about the IRs and I'm not sure Hammond will make the budget speach.

 

Me thinks the conversation has gone along like:

 

May: We bneed to collapse house prices

Hammond: Collapse ?  My precious ?

May: Yes.

Hammond: No

May: Yes.

Hammon: No, or I will tell everyone who you're really working for 

May: Ramp away.

 

AFAICT that's what's going on right now.

F**k the people, the MPs want their tax free unearned cash.

 

However, I agree, these ****s will not let prices fall, they are prepared to destory everyone's savings and wages to keep their asset prices up.

My neighbours house is testaqmoney to this....50% up in 3 years, equivalent salary would be 6 figures !!!

 

madness
