I was a passenger in car tday and stopping in the London traffic in Holloway heard an accordian and recognised the Godfather theme being played. I looked over and the musician was sitting underneath wall art image of the PM. Wonder if it's a Banksy ref Don Con. Interesting seeing people's thoughts.

 

A programme coming on Channel 4 being advertised called Humans. Is this the plan to create humanoids, compliant, efficient, to curb the population of the world which science says the planet will not be able to sustain.

 

 

Amazing spaces gr8 places. Inspiring watch.

 

Zac Goldsmith a poss next PM?

They cut Nurse numbers and wonder why agency spending has risen. I remember all this in the 80's same ol' same ol'

 

Right now thinking outside the box, not an expert on all the tech available to create renewable energy but let's say solar panels on hospitals, fitting systems where if you are not in a room the light goes off, all waste burnt goes to companies who can create energy from the source and those companies pay some back to the NHS.

Every time I look at a newspaper there is a story about another sink hole ? Is this something new or is the planet falling apart ?

 

If the planet has been mined so much and oil/gas extracted, surely this must affect the stability of the planet. Or do they fill in the areas where extraction has taken place ?

We moan about the amount of rain that we experience in the UK, but spare a thought for those living in California, where they are running out of water. Search online for pictures and news on this to see how bad it is.

I was reading Interestrateripoff posts and you can understand how globalisation is a phenonema which is changing amidst the lack of confidence between nations. Reasons why gold being used for trade instead of transferring numbers from one account to another. After the hell hole scenario you just can't trust the system. Countries want something that exists in a solid state, the disappearing act is made harder that way.

 

Coincidence the 'leak' came at same time PM wanting to show muscle at EU Summit. Gr8 PR, hey, we are also looking at how we can exit so there! It's an interesting club so for now it's a good watch.

 

Getting that feel of divide and conquer again. Lot of that in the 80's. Selling off housing assoc homes and taking staff benefits away from train companies. Both topics will stir up one opinion against another. With the housing proposal, makes you wonder about the London social cleansing as people could offer money bribes to tenants so they buy their homes and then sell them to that person with the dosh. Wonder if that really is far fetched. With the rail staff benefits, that's to stoke up anti union feeling mmm she didn't quite finish them all off last time so we're in for another attempt. Totally hypocritical, most public sector workers belong to a union and have perks. Read article below.

 

Article by Littlejohn tday Daily Male:madgrin: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-3096783/RICHARD-LITTLEJOHN-Everybody-gravy-train-blundering-child-protection-chief-gets-six-figure-redundancy-package-strolls-lucrative-consultancy-department.html

 

NHS cuts mentioned part way down article see the surgeons holding a B&Q bag.

 

As you read down you will come across this 'Dame Carol said there was 'undoubtably a correlation' between the extended length of time Government staff receive full pay and benefits while off sick and the scale of their absenteeism'

 

but the Cabinet office refused to investigate the link because it was a 'political hot potato.'

Queen's speech tday. The snoopers charter, seems like there will be more freedom for your privacy to be scrutinised.

My hope is that one day we will not have a Queens speech or a Kings speech. Britain should be able to move on to having a full democracy where the Head of State is elected. I don't care for the argument that we should not try to fix something that works. Many people are very fond of Queen Elizabeth, but they may not feel the same way about King Charles and Queen Camilla when they are sat on the thrones in parliament delivering the Kings speech.

 

We all know that the royal family and a powerful elite have too much influence on the UK, but we are reluctant to change, for fear of who would replace them. The answer is that in a modern world you need more leaders and more democracy, which is why it is inevitable that the UK will split into a federal arrangement and England will have regional government. There will also probably be more referendums with online voting.

Good to hear. Alan Johnson MP replies. Read CAG Mag here http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?442509-CAG-Newsletter-From-January-2015&p=4741642#post4741642

 

Selling off housing assoc homes in the spotlight but not hearing about new affordable rental homes being built. It is not right or fair renting is veering towards private landlords. There should be adequate choice.

If Greece set up a website selling celebratory pots of taramasalata, help keep us in Europe campaign, £2 a time, would help. If every one in the world bought a £4 pack of goodies say the above plus a £2 pot of olives could be a part payment. They are in big doo doo as it would be £40 from practically everyone in the world to wipe out their debt.

 

Now, our debt is iro £4.8 tril. £78k on each of our heads.

Countries have always had debts, as the world economic system runs on debt ? What is really different about the current situation ?

 

Can I suggest that reducing natural resources, increased populations, technology replacing human jobs and globalisation has a lot to do with it. Greece has always been a poor country, but they managed to get by, with low paid jobs and income from being a major holiday destination. Due to issues mentioned and global financial crisis affecting them, the weaknesses in their economy have hit them hard.

 

Greece needs to leave the Euro and start to find ways to generate money. They could attract foreign investors, who might like to build a new resorts, with holiday homes and leisure facilities. This creates building site jobs and jobs in the new resorts when they are up and running. Greece may need to sell off land to developers at a rate that is attractive, to attract investment. There are very rich Greeks living in London and Monaco, who might be willing to invest.

Yes this Russian connection keeps cropping up. As Uncle B says they really do need to push their tourism industry. A fabulous country to enjoy.

Now it seems the rail project is on hold, and it turns out this was well known before the election. We didn't hear about that.

 

No substance in the answers given by Amber Rudd on Question Time tnite. Load of waffle and the audience made her aware of that. I bet Mr C is glad he's bailing out in next couple of years.

I heard the Houses of Parliament are so leaky, someone sitting at their desk, laptop open, feels a drip:madgrin: of water, then more drips on the keyboard. Looks up to see source of the drips. It is discovered it's wee dripping from the leaky mens loos!

 

PC wee:madgrin::madgrin:

 

 

I hope money belonging to the UK has not been overly exposed to lending cash to Greece. Was it Goldman Sachs who were paid money to complete a report as to whether Greece complied with the criteria to join EU. Not sure how they managed to get a yes on that as like some of us who have previously posted on this issue, would have said they don't fit the criteria. Must have been another reason for entry, lots of armery maybe? Who knows the name of the game.

 

 

Keep hearing the murderers in Tunisia were on the radar. Once on don't take off, or ignore. We all need to be vigilant as we go about our business as the murderers are always looking for opportunities.

 

There was a strange man arrested in Watford in the last month dressed in a Burka carrying an unexploded device. I haven't heard anymore on that. Someone noticed he was acting strangly and it was acted upon. I've also heard there was an anti western protest march in Luton ystday.
