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

Sir Mervyn King, the Bank of England Governor, said that the “industrialised world have thrown everything bar the kitchen sink” at the global economic meltdown but that even “bolder action” was now required. – UK Telegraph Continue reading

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.

John Ward – Budget : Osborne Dreams Up The Non Idea Of The Century – 14 March 2012

With the bond markets wary of anything beyond a 100 days, the Chancellor offers them something for a hundred years.

I had my doubts about Draper Osborne pretty much from Day One really, but I wasn’t entirely sure he was a plonker until he started singing the praises of Frufru Lagarde. I realise, naturally, that he only did so because she was being nice about his fiscal policy at the time; but anyone with an ounce of common sense would know that proffering any public praise of Mme Lagarde is a hostage to fortune.
