Good old days

You miss Empire.

This is philia surging back.

Statistically correct. Higher life satisfaction, social trust, lower crime, no terrorism, no untouchable aristos you cannot insult (sorry, would a guillotine be less offensive?), homogeneity of demographics, higher birth rate, better economy, higher culture, better art, less media intrusion and celebrity cult, social mobility for natives, no foreign job crushing from globalisation, no victim culture and defamation monstering mobs.

Most importantly, the barometers of success and maturity were obtainable if you worked for them.

Getting a place, getting married, starting a family.

Eventually retiring.

Nobody can afford to now.

That’s the main thing, a genocidal suppression of the life cycle.

We are totally fucked.

http://www.taxpayersalliance.com/interest_rates_and_national_debt_press_release

A new paper by the TaxPayers’ Alliance sets out the economic landscape in which the Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) will make its latest interest rate decision, and makes the case for not raising borrowing or spending despite superficially alluring low interest rates.
  • EVEN if interest rates remain at their historically low level of 0.25 per cent, then the national debt is projected to reach 234 per cent of GDP in 2066-67.
  • However, it is very likely that rates will go up soon, and when they do, the national debt as a percentage of GDP is also projected to rise.
  • By 2066-67, any increase in interest rates will mean a significant increase in the national debt as a percentage of GDP.

Their bold.

That’s going by official numbers, which are …wrong.

https://disenchantedscholar.wordpress.com/2016/04/13/real-uk-debt-at-least-8-6-trillion/

Who do we owe this fucking money?

Can’t we just break their kneecaps with a naval fleet?

Those were the days.

They’re being Pollyanna, guys.

The UK’s fiscal situation is still very fragile :
  • The UK’s national debt currently stands at £1.7 trillion.
  • This is equivalent to 89.3 per cent of GDP.
  • When compared internationally, the UK has the eighth highest national debt in the EU and the fifth highest in the OECD.
  • In the financial year ending March 2017, the UK’s national debt increased by £68.1 billion.
  • This is the equivalent of £5.7 billion a month and £186 million a day.
  • The UK government spends £48.4 billion each year on debt interest payments, more than it spends on the police transport combined.

Someone’s gonna have to work that off.

Can you guess who?

The cocky liberal arts champagne socialists who think they’re too good to work a real job. That’s who.

It’s going to be precious once they figure this out.

Don’t interrupt them as New New Left eats New Left. Just let them slowly clock what’s actually been going on this entire time. When the police lose their pensions will be interesting. Teachers?

The Neo-Nazis will also fail, the solution to socialism’s collapse is not more sodding socialism.

Santa didn’t bring them toys, they gotta make toys too.
Socialists are confidence tricksters on a national scale.

Negative effects to UK economy

In addition to higher debt interest payments and a bigger national debt, there are other serious negative effects of increased borrowing that are not currently part of the debate:

(i) The UK has a floating exchange rate and so has a small fiscal multiplier. So if capital does not come from other parts of the UK capital market, it must come from other economies. This results in the real exchange rate rising. This has a negative impact on the competitiveness of UK exports.

(ii) Index-linked gilts form approximately 25 per cent of the UK’s gilt portfolio, a high percentage compared to other highly developed economies. As a result of the relatively high proportion of index-linked gilts, the UK’s level of debt is particularly susceptible to increases in inflation. Therefore, the MPC has a further incentive to consider a moderate increase in interest rates in order to curb inflation.

try capitalism

(iii) The UK pays interest on the bonds which it issues in the form of yields. If the national debt increases then these yields will have to increase in order to attract investors

Fuck investors.

(iv). Very high national debt can have a negative impact on economic growth. For example, borrowing can crowd out other investment as investors loan money to the government, rather than to the private sector. Nations typically see growth slow when their debt levels reach 90 percent of GDP, with the median growth rate falling by 1 percent and average growth falling by even more.

Good news – we can’t take more immigrants.

Bad news – we can’t take the current population.

Guardian: British magazines “too white”

https://www.theguardian.com/media/2018/apr/10/glossy-magazine-covers-too-white-models-black-ethnic-minority

I read that title and thought…

You make me sick.

Note: original title of headline in URL altered on site as of present.

Oh, wait.

What is this?

Suddenly it makes sense.

Is there a problem with African magazines, that don’t depict enough Whites?

I don’t think so somehow, do you?

It’s a business, when did you last buy a magazine, author?

Actually, why is the Guardian now primarily online?

It doesn’t get enough papers sales to keep running does it?

Race and money is a category. Hm.

Er, do they seriously expect white women to buy fashion advice that doesn’t apply to them?

She does, doesn’t she?

It must make her really, deeply uncomfortable, to see so many white people….

What a tragedy. She feels out of place, does she? Like she doesn’t belong?

If you want to live in a society of people who look like you, don’t live in Europe?

You haven’t collected “data”, you are not a scientist. What you have is a fucking tally chart. You couldn’t get that shit published in the lowest tier scientific journal.

A scientist would compare all photos IN a magazine over time with the demographics of a country.

And non-whites are far, far, FAR, over-represented.

Obviously race isn’t real and you can’t tell what someone is by looking… unless you’re writing a hateful article about how the homeland of white people has too many natives in its media.

Regard the r-type, reminded it is outnumbered, triggered to fuck by this insight and feeling hideous by comparison to those quite average white models. It isn’t about race, it’s about sexual attractiveness. No amount of complaint will make you any prettier, bitch. Their genes are still what they are and yours are what you are.

Don’t like it? Complain to your parents, they are the ones responsible for how you look.
We’ll see more and more of these mixed cases complaining over the years.

I didn’t make them fuck, love. Your discomfort is Freudian.

For all the flak they get, you don’t really see Black women complain in America. They don’t give a shit if Jessica Simpson is on one cover as long as Beyonce is on another. That’s smart. This is bullshit.

Non-white magazines go out of business for a number of reasons…. 1. you don’t buy them!

The covers of four magazines – Marie Claire, HomeStyle, Your Home and Prima – did not feature a single person of colour throughout 2017.

Mummy mags?

How many black women are married? Tell me those stats.

One of the most popular – Mr Tumble Something Special – was based on the children’s TV personality Justin Fletcher, who is white

Damn white people, how dare they be creative and get acclaim!

When Shulman stepped down in 2017, making way for UK Vogue’s first black editor, Edward Enninful, her leaving photo depicted an all-white editorial staff at the magazine.

Hiring white people, the horror!

Here’s the Huffington Post

When will the Guardian announce how many white people it hires?

When will it stop hiring white people? Including Owen Jones.
And by white, obviously Jewish doesn’t count. You can still hire Jews and not be racist.

Enninful rebooted interest in the magazine, with a much-celebrated first cover featuring British Ghanaian model Adwoa Aboah

so…. Ghanaian

Brits have no right to steal Ghana’s triumph there

The magazine’s most recent cover headlined “New Frontiers”, was also praised for featuring a diverse range of models including Halima Aden,

Somalian

“Young Hollywood is thin, white,” ran one critical headline in response to the magazine’s 2010 cover, which did not feature a single person of colour.

You think Hollywood is white?

“The industry is still overwhelmingly homogenous,”

the horror

says a senior figure from an ethnic minority background working at another UK magazine, who did not want to be named.

shocker

“that doesn’t change the fact that magazines are still incredibly white and middle class.”

Total domination only.

You know, that’s why they cancelled My Family? Middle class is code for white.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2138654/BBC-axed-My-Family-middle-class-says-shows-star-Zoe-Wanamaker.html

But there are more middle-class Asians than Whites in the UK, yep, they stole our prosperity. All that social mobility that would’ve and should’ve gone to the native White population.

Growing up, I would pick up magazines, and I never saw anybody who looked like me,” says Afua Adom, former editor of Pride. “I was really into music, so I used to read Smash Hits and magazines like that; I never saw a person who looked like me. And where I lived in Scotland there was no one who looked like me anywhere. My mum subscribed to Pride, and that’s why I wanted to work there all those years ago – because it was the only magazine I saw full of women who looked like me.”

So?

What a vain cunt. I don’t pack my bags and move to Japan and bemoan “Oh, my feelings! Why does no one here look like me!”

Wait, you’re counting her

as black?

No? She has freckles IRL.

She has tons of blue blood in there, you can practically swim in it.

“You can’t find those features in white people!”

Bull-SHIT, son. English rose.

How many black or non-white models are owed covers, as if they can’t earn them?

We had two black actresses lined up for 2017, but their publicist decided to go with other titles.

How many cultural reparations in white countries and only the white countries, is enough to stop the whining?

Give us a number. Ah, but they never will. It’s never, ever enough.

“At Marie Claire, we used 17 models of colour – which is probably about a third to a quarter of all of the models that we shoot.”

So they get too many jobs!

 The website Fashion Spot reported a rise in diversity in global fashion in 2017, with the big fashion capitals of New York, Milan, Paris and London all featuring more women of colour than in previous years.

https://www.retailgazette.co.uk/blog/2016/11/why-is-the-fashion-sector-struggling/

Why is the fashion sector struggling?

I wonder.

What’s the average spending power and priority of white to non-white women? Any stats?

And of the 266 major shows and 8,258 catwalk appearances across the four cities in 2017, an average of 30.2% of castings were women of colour. 

So they’re getting too much work and you complain?

Half that should be white.

But covers matter. Those who appear on them are the ambassadors of beauty, success and commercial appeal.

Only if you’re vain and insecure, I never felt threatened by Japanese covers in Japan, African covers in Africa or American covers in America.

Beauty is not commercially viable, sexy is – a lot goes on in her head, doesn’t it?

There’s a danger, too, that diversifying the models inside magazines while the covers remain white sends a new message of hierarchical beauty standards

standards are always a hierarchy, hot or not, idiot

– suggesting women of colour have their place, and it’s not on the cover.

You literally cannot win with these people, it’s never enough!

The magazine industry’s reluctance to put BAME women on its covers is not the only way it is failing the public. The situation is even worse regarding larger, older and transgender models.

Here we go. Boomers are still pushing Jane Fonda as a sex symbol, the creaky haggard narcissist.

But there are numerous firsthand accounts of the way in which representation of race has a particularly negative effect on black women.

She ain’t black, why is she talking for them? Get a black girl to write another article!

everyone was talking about how beautiful she was

so insecure

do they know what female trolling is?

As the country becomes increasingly diverse – more than a quarter of schoolchildren in England are from ethnic minority groups – it is of special concern that this is not being reflected in magazine covers. Corinna Shaffer, editorial director of Immediate Media, which publishes 21 children’s magazine titles, including all but one of those featured in the Guardian study, acknowledges more needs to be done.

And most of those will move back “home” once they’re sent a bill for white Baby Boomers’ national debt. States during the Great Depression made welfare recipients pay their total received plus admin plus interest. This will be worse. They also made all welfare recipients into a de facto manual labour force. Compulsory.

A report last November found that 94% of journalists are white, compared with 91% of the working population as whole, a figure that does not take into account the fact that many publications are based in London, where only 60% of the population is white.

I dispute that.

Fire all the white people who work for the Guardian or why should I listen?

White people’s articles get more traffic on the Guardian, you’re full of shit.

working population whites 91%

what’s non-working population non-white?

“The erasure of black and brown people from magazine covers is part of a much broader process of “othering” – it reinforces the idea that people of colour are not the norm,”

Norm is statistical, you aren’t the norm. Globally you are, and whites are the minority.

What about the white erasure? There are Asian and African-only mags, is European-only illegal?

“the idea it creates that people of colour don’t belong.”

No the idea created is in your head based on cultural standards you don’t want to observe or want to reduce.

But foreign aid is important

“My children, who have gone from me up to the local secondary school, have grey skin, poor teeth, poor hair, poor nails. They are smaller, they are thinner,” she said.

“At sporting events, you see your children in the year group compared to other children in an affluent area and you think: our kids are really small. When you see them with children of the same age who are from an affluent area, they just look tiny.”

What white privilege?

Why is UK property price rising?

Rich foreigners.

old article but true

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-35757265

As I’ve said before, boy will they get a shock when our government just fails to acknowledge their property rights (as non-citizens).

https://disenchantedscholar.wordpress.com/2017/11/25/whats-going-on-in-greece/

“You think the Greeks are going to get off their arses for you, when they won’t do it for their grandkids?

The West and EU is pumping them full of worthless money.
It’s hilarious, they think we’re actually trading with them.
We can just confiscate back national resources for national security.

We do it already to our own citizens, you aren’t fucking special.

Three-quarters of properties being purchased are purchased in secret, that’s wrong – it ought to be completely transparent,” says group member, Labour peer Jeff Rooker.

Agreed.

A house isn’t an investment, it doesn’t change. It actually depreciates.

Population does change.

They’re gambling.

This will make ownership through UK companies more transparent, but won’t affect overseas companies investing in London.

It should be the other way around.

Not to mention the crooked politicians allowing purchases and planning permission, flouting skyline rules and many others.

https://www.thedailybeast.com/the-curse-of-666-fifth-avenue-the-skyscraper-that-could-sink-the-kushners

Look at the Skyscraper Index too. China is fucked.

A lot of those skyscrapers and flats will simply be torn down. They were illegally built.

“A palace second in size only to Buckingham Palace, it was sold for £50m to an offshore company registered in the British Virgin Islands,” says our guide, and tells us it will soon become home to a Russian oligarch.

No it won’t, it’s easy to kick out false kings from their little ill-gotten palaces.

I hear the noise of diggers and machinery building a spa and a private underground car park. A neighbour walking the dog nearby mutters how disruptive this has been and how the trees have been cut down.

That’s why you don’t let foreigners literally buy your country.

The government and politicians and sellers are traitors, they are literally selling their country out.

Russians aren’t even really white, FFS. New Money will end up dirt poor as they deserve. Don’t let them ruin our few good buildings in the mean time.

But this kind of disruption could soon be curtailed if increasing clarity on ownership puts off future buyers.

the love of money is the root of all evil

Eternal growth is an economist’s myth.

You know the only thing that grows eternally? Cancer.

The US, another attractive location for anonymous property purchases, has tightened regulations recently. The US Treasury department announced two months ago that it would start identifying the anonymous buyers of luxury properties, particularly in New York and Miami.

start?

This measure follows the introduction of a strict new anti-money laundering regulations, which have led to the US authorities to impose hefty fines on major banks.

no let them fail

The pressure to shut down avenues of money laundering and tax evasion could also mean property purchases here soon come under tougher scrutiny.

could?

And then our tour guides will be able to pack up and go home.

Russian writer …no conflict of interest.

https://blogs.spectator.co.uk/2016/02/move-over-royal-family-londons-oligarchs-are-the-new-tourist-attraction/

Yes, let all the white-collar criminals live here too. Fantastic.

Russian oligarchs suspected of corruption in UK must account for wealth and property

That should be done before purchase as part of a background check.

Let it crash, please God just let them all hit their real level.

Britons little changed in DNA since Ice Age

https://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2005/07/0719_050719_britishgene.html

Despite invasions by Saxons, Romans, Vikings, Normans, and others, the genetic makeup of today’s white Britons is much the same as it was 12,000 ago, a new book claims.

In The Tribes of Britain, archaeologist David Miles says around 80 percent of the genetic characteristics of most white Britons have been passed down from a few thousand Ice Age hunters.

Note the precision of language. That is a scientist.

Technically, there’s no such thing as British.

There was no British Empire, it was the English Empire. You didn’t see the Welsh fucking up anyone.

Despite all the Guardian articles trying to make out we were awful, the People aren’t fooled.

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/british-people-are-proud-of-colonialism-and-the-british-empire-poll-finds-a6821206.html

 

YouGov found 44 per cent were proud of Britain’s history of colonialism while only 21 per cent regretted that it happened. 23 per cent held neither view.

The same poll also asked about whether the British Empire was a good thing or a bad thing: 43 per cent said it was good, while only 19 per cent said it was bad. 25 per cent responded that it was “neither”.

Americans don’t understand how political and meaningless the term British is.

Since the collapse of the Empire, it’s been meaningless.

People are either English, Welsh, Irish or Scottish. Sometimes a combination.

There are also little islands like Jersey that have their own flags.

Cooler than ours but derived from England’s original Three Lions heraldry.

The British is typically, Great Britain, and the union of the four countries is incredibly recent (Union Act 1707, 1800). It’s a term about what the Queen owns, similar to the UK but without pesky parts of Ireland.  Jane Austen’s novels are older than Great Britain. England is a country in its own right, Parliament and the Queen are based there. It’s the central country.

The British Isles covers the most landmass. It’s huge. It’s geographic and includes a lot of tiny islands.

So again, if you’re discussing where a person is from, to say they’re from Britain is technically incorrect. At least, what Britain? Great? Isles? What? It’s like saying someone is European, unless you mean the continent (correct but vague) you cannot mean the legal construct (EU) because nobody’s DNA originates from a legal fiction. There is no such physical PLACE. There is no DNA for Britain, (sometimes ancient Briton, as in the study above) but it’s either English from England, Irish from Ireland, Scottish from Scotland or Welsh from Wales. British is meant to be from Britain but nowadays everybody has a British passport, a passport grants citizenship and financial entitlements it changes nothing about your DNA. To refer to blood, genes and ancestry, you cannot be British. It would be like referring to your occupation, it’s a legal thing.

Recently they’ve tried to claim dilution.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-5312697/DNA-map-Britain-Ireland-reveals-Viking-genes.html

“Researchers have found 50 distinct genetic clusters (classified into broader groups) in Ireland and Britain”

That contradicts your headline.
