John Ward – Election 2015: Grant Shapps, Jeremy Hunt, David Cameron, Ed Miliband, Nigel Farage, & Six Other Reasons Why Not To Vote – 17 March 2015

JohnWOver the last few days, a dozen or more of us have been enjoying a spirited Twitter debate about ‘to vote or not to vote’. For me, the answer will always depend on the political choice, the voting system, and the issues involved.

On the contemporary UK landscape, I have been disenfranchised for many years now. That’s because:

1. A ridiculously unrepresentative voting system dooms the entry of new players into the market. The denial of my right to tick a box called ‘None of the above’ is an obvious ploy by the Establishment to retain their oligarchic privilege in perpetuity.

2. Of the two ‘major’ Parties, one advocates a laissez-faire economic system that has failed wherever it’s been tried. The other fails to oppose many of the elements of that system, while at the same time offering a set of unaffordable and opportunistic policies that were tried and failed before. Both accept globalism, and neither are avowedly mutualist communitarian. Both have paymasters that do not represent the electoral mainstream. Continue reading

John Ward – Our Money, Their Egomania : The Disturbing Link Between Mario Draghi, Angela Merkel, Barack Obama, Nicolas Sarkozy, Rupert Murdoch, Boris Johnson, John McCain, David Cameron, George Osborne, Tony Blair, Connecting For Health, And HS2 – 8 February 2015

dambrokeThe time has come to ask two questions of our oligarchies: Are you being serious? And What TF is going on?

You see, the thing is, it’s all about geopolitics really. Well…and oil, too. Geoilpolitik as German academics might say. But the major problem with reducing this sauce down to one word is, it doesn’t get us anywhere: we still have no idea what on earth’s going on. Continue reading

Mish/ Mike Shedlock – Europe’s Most Dangerous Politicians: Angela Merkel, Francois Hollande, David Cameron, Jean-Claude Juncker, Jose Barosso, Mario Monti, Herman Van Rampuy – 13 August 2012

Der Spiegel has published an inane article about Europe’s 10 Most Dangerous Politicians.

Top 10 List

  1. Markus Söder, Bavarian Finance Minister: The politician from the Christian Social Union, the conservative sister party to Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union, is known for his tub-thumping rhetoric and has stepped up a gear in the euro crisis with vitriolic comments about Greece. “An example must be made of Athens, that this euro zone can show teeth,” he told the Bild am Sonntag tabloid newspaper this week.

John Ward – Official : The Eurozone Meltdown Has Hardly Got Going, But Already It Has Wiped Out 80% Of Osborne’s Savings –

British taxpayers have pumped £11.7bn into Greece, Ireland and Portugal through the IMF, an early European rescue fund, and a bilateral loan to Ireland.

That’s £4 out of every £5 of George Osborne’s half-hearted, misguided and much delayed (not really his fault) austerity plan blown away by the hubris of a euro we warned would fail, never joined, and yet somehow now have to help bail out.

Can anyone in Britain anywhere imagine a scenario in which Merkel, Van Rompuy, Barroso and Draghi would bail out the Pound? Continue reading

John Ward – Hackgate Day 486 : A Mad Vixen Giggles In Court – 12 May 2012

Various media across the world referred to Rebekah Brooks’s appearance at the Leveson Enquiry on Friday as ‘a grilling’. Bollocks. It was anything but.

Throughout her evidence, this ghastly woman found difficulty in holding back an understated yet utterly twisted smile. At no point in the proceedings was she caught out or ill at ease. She complained constantly that she did not have access to her diaries and notes. I waited in vain for somebody in authority to ask her why not. Continue reading
