Money And Promises.
UK's Brave (not) New World.
A meeting of Mafioso families might well be an apt way of describing this "united" response to the expected report on banking
fraud practices of the last couple of decades. I grow weary of trying to ascertain where these ghastly monsters ever came from. I'm led to believe that my taxes were used to save these people from ruin and collapse. It would be nice to receive compensation for the LIBOR fiddles.
I was told that they, banks, were too big to fail, the damage would be horrendous. Excuse me, how come? Since the banks are still, near as makes no difference, every bit as corrupt, self centred and thieving as ever, together with remaining insolvent, if they had a run on their promises to pay the bearers of deposits, what would this alleged failure have meant?
I suppose it really meant that the wealthy Tony Blair like individuals, including 90% of both Houses of Parliament, plus their friends of shadowy background, oligarch connections, would have suffered Cypriot style hair cuts. Smaller customer holdings, most of us, would have been the recipients of tax funded rescue via Government backed protection, using our tax revenues for the collective benefit of those funding it all.
So is it fair to say that the current malaise, unimproved by the scandals and cosy rescues of large but useless banks, was a deliberate act of favouritism by Government on behalf of their cronies? There does seem to be evidence of this.
Furthermore, when we discover the depths to which Snotty Picker Gordo and his henchmen, Milibad and Testicles, colluded in all this, one can only wonder why more is not made of it by the present lot. Probably because they attend similar soirées and desire the same ability to manipulate or beg favours. Sort of like the recent bashes in Watford and the Belfast G8 bash costing us more millions of borrowed spondoolah.
Both events explicitly not for the likes of the rest of us. We are only required to pay for it all and suffer their incompetence. Failings which are lasting years and for which there is not one whiff of culpability, or apology for getting it all so terribly wrong. Do I have any answers? Well how about a dose of common sense? We can't afford Trident renewal, The EUSSR membership fees or the Afghan endless and bottomless commitment, that all bleed us dry.
Our infrastructure cannot cope or afford more immigration on a mass scale, the costly effort to police Islamic ambition or the nonsensical European Court meddling. We cannot afford never ending IOUs to all and sundry via bank support for the benefit of crooks and speculators. We cannot afford Utilities playing fast and loose with our water supplies, energy and even the air we breathe.
We can afford to recover our underground, natural gas reserves. I note the coal mining industry never suffered the vilification, orchestrated against fracking, by the green eyed monster brigades. Aided and abetted by a global wide shorting of oil markets. Reduce the burden of taxation and petty regulations for employers, beloved of Labour and the Left. Well, other than their Banking mates. In a nutshell, dump our besotted relationship with globalisation hypocrisy.
Become a real Nation again. Including concentrating our charitable aid on and in our own these shores. If we ever became a truly wealthy and debt free Country once more, then is the time to pay interest on loans taken purely to subsidise the executive jet manufacturers and marinas. Is it so bloody difficult, really?
