The Finance Director of UK Plc has called it.
Yesterday, we had the sight of Gordon Brown addressing a half empty chamber of the European Parliament. On the blogosphere we had the speeches of both Daniel Hannan and Nigel Farage ripping into Brown’s utter failure as both Chancellor and Prime Minister.
Did we see any of this on the BBC or any other broadcasting media in this country, did we hell. We just had the uncritical broadcast of Brown’s wooden triumphalism. The BBC has demonstrated yet again that it is under total state control. The Nu Labour message is pushed relentlessly through Eastenders,the One Show, the Archers etc creating a parody of the Britain that we live in filtered through the newspeak of Nu Labour.
Polly is also calling for state subsidy of the Grauniad and other ‘worthy’ print media (The Devil) whilst hundreds of longstanding regional newspapers go to the wall. They are going to the wall, because business that funds these papers through advertising can no longer afford to, so Polly wants state aid. Failing to see that the tax base has been eroded by business going bust.
Business is the goose that lays the Golden Eggs you stupid stupid woman.
Wondering why there are so many NHS and Government adverts on the TV at present, it is because business adverting has dried up, and the commercial channels are going bust, the Government advertising is a State subsidy to ensure that those sedatives, East Enders and Coronation Street stay on the air. Keep the masses entertained at all costs, its as old as bread and circuses.
However despite the Hannan and Farage blackout, the Financial Director of UK Plc , Mervyn King, made the clearest public statement that he could that the country has run out of money, the rest of the board of UK Plc are too scared to admit it and are in denial. I have seen the ‘bunny in the headlights’ syndrome in so many directors and managers faces in the last thirty years, unable to comprehend that the bullshit they have been feeding their staff, their customers, their creditors will no longer wash. The defining day for me was when Labour started printing money guaranteed to stoke ‘stagflation’. The monopoly money is being used to pay state employees and the unemployed, whilst business after business goes bust.
Governments, historically, with their backs to the wall do one of two things- they go voluntarily or they indulge in repression. The Stuarts did repression and where thrown out of power in an avoidable bloody civil war, The last Tsar put the Cossacks on the streets, it all ended in a cellar in Ekaterinburg.
April 1st will be a defining day for this Government and for the Conservative Party. The G20 protests, sure, will be have a huge mix of the usual ‘awkward’ squad, but the uniting mood will be the one against this corrupt Government and the Bankers that it has given our treasure to. The Police are going to have a hard time of it, if they are beaten into a corner trying to defend the indefensible. If I was Stephenson I would be saying to Jackboot Jacqui that the Summer of Rage has arrived early and that only a political solution is going to save the day, not more repression.
Brown can either drag this agony out, or be dragged out himself or stand aside, as did the leaders of Iceland and Hungary, and call a General Election. Cameron cannot assume the reins and come out with more of the same policies. Otherwise he is going to just play the role of a failed Kerensky.
In my humble opinion, the Conservatives should dump Cameron with his weak ‘Capitalism with a Conscience’, and promote those with a clear mandate and Plan to put to the people.
My personal wishlist in the first 100 days.
The immediate abolition of both BBC and Income Tax on the same day. The freeing up of 40% of our salaries, those still lucky enough to be in work, will be circulated into the shops, homes and businesses, and will create real jobs.
The creation of a Tax Haven Britain for businesses across the world to invest in.
The immediate closure of ALL quangos, wholesale sacking of public servants.
The NHS to be funded from NI, not general taxation.
The end to our costly overseas military entanglements.
Reform of Parliament to 100 full time MP’s and a written constitution.
We are going one of two ways in 2009, a socialist siege economy or a new start for capitalism that has made us rich over the last two hundred and fifty years, that excessive taxation has destroyed.
Since starting this piece a newsflash has gone across my screen that Fred Goodwin’s home has been attacked. Perhaps time is shorter than I thought.
With thanks to both Subrosa, Lilith and Guido, I had missed the unprecendented meeting without officials present between Mervyn King and HRH.
This is as sure a sign of a political meltdown as you would would wish to see, HRH will be 'suggesting' various courses of action if the Saxe-Cobourg-Gotha family wish to stay at their current residence.
