Jeremy Paxman continuously Flabbergasted

Harriet Harman

For the last week or so, the highly paid Paxman has become obviously annoyed at the continuous devious behaviour from every politician he’s interviewed.  They all say “we understand the public’s anguish” – but, as Paxman notes, they do fuck all about it.  As many have noted, if you go into a shop and steal a bag of sugar and get caught, just giving the sugar back to the shop isn’t the normal chain of events – but that’s what MPs do!

Nicky Campbell and Harriet Harman

Two days ago, stuck in my bed, I had to suffer the even-paced utterances of Harriet Harman as she shape-shifted around Paxman’s questions.  This followed an earlier episode on the same day when she did the same on a live phonein on early morning Radio Five Live with the effervescent  Nicky Campbell.  Listen here to the full 45 mins

Paxman versus Harman

Paxman’s interview is here for a week or so until it’s pulled;  news.bbc.co.uk…8078715

If you can survive it, just watch the whole Harman (and other pieces) in the full programme, and wait for the round-up which you can see here;

www.bbc.co.uk…b00kwqxx_01_06_2009/

At precisely 35:30 into the show (you can fast-fwd if you like), Paxman tries to summarise exactly what Harman had just said in the monotonous sanctimonious ramblings…. Funny as fuck.  Here’s what he said:

“Labour deputy leader Harriet Harman told this programme… er, I don’t exactly what she told us… er, that public support… we haven’t got exactly what… we can’t tell precisely what we are proposing to repeat of what she said, but it was very interesting”.

The Guardian’s Media Monkey also picked up on this here, Harman’s all too forgettable for Paxo.  In total that day, I had 1.25 hours of Harman’s drifting and side-shifting.  And like Paxman, I can’t remember a single word or any single point that was made because of the verbal force-field in place.

William Hague versus Paxman

The latest episode of  tax sorry, question, sorry ‘tax question avoidance’ from Paxman was by ‘Don’t be Vague, ask for’ William Hague.  See all two minutes of smirking squirming here:

news.bbc.co.uk…8080379

Paxman’s interview with Hague has now made it onto YouTube:

I still remember him as young twat at an old Tory conference…

And this is exactly the problem that the public have with the politicians.  See my posting yesterday on this.  It’s just continuous rampant corruption, denial and avoidance.  Paxman is right to be flabbergasted.  If he can’t get an answer, then what hope Joe Bloggs (Joe the Plumber for my US readers).  Most military and police force members feel the same way.  Without their backing, if they don’t sort themselves out, we can easily bring in a guillotine.  We’ve had a civil war here.  We’ve chopped the heads off monarchs.  Britain isn’t such a nicey-nicey place to be when it’s riled up.  There are 30 million that think like this and 30 million too scared to disagree.

Conclusion

I don’t think Paxman’s losing it.  He is overpaid for what he does but I don’t think his powers have gone.  The problem is the politicians’ behaviour and Paxman’s exasperation at their intransigence at coming anywhere near to the public’s expectations.  It’s on their heads in the long run.  They’ve been told enough.

UK Parliament – a Crisis for Europe?

MP Expenses and Privileges Scandal

Let’s make one thing absolutely clear:

Apart from 635 MPs and the somewhat fewer UK MEPs, NOT ONE PERSON IN BRITAIN THINKS ANY DIFFERENTLY FROM ME! ***

Guillotine

Guillotine

We all think that they’re all a bunch of spivving crooks who’ve let everyone down.  To compound the felony, they will even get paid until they die for their corrupt practices!

No-one will get censured, no-one imprisoned.

A soldier with 22 years service phoned up to say he gets £535 as resettlement allowance for training etc to ease his transition to ‘civvy street’.  MP Moran will get £35,000 for her bent 12 years’ resettlement.

The Future?

The imminent Euro elections will have great ramifications and create great strife in the short term.  The situation with MEP expenses and pensions is well documented and even worse.

When the UK starts to pull from Europe, which it undoubtedly will becuase who will vote for a ‘normal’ party?… the Euro states will really start to worry.  Within their hearts they know that they really need the UK in rather than out of Europe.  For a host of reasons.

To ensure the UK participates, they will have to change their MEP gravy train and all the other practices, which will be “a good thing”.  The Mafia will have to be controlled and waste cut right back.  It won’t just be to acquiess to the UK – the EU citizens, millions of whom will be unemployed and listless, they won’t take the obvious discrepancies in elected representatives’ T&Cs compared to their own.  News travels around now.  Fast.

France had a revolution to get rid of such a problem.  Heads really did roll….  Their groups of various vested interests make their point now and again, like fishermen and lorry drivers.

Wacky Baccy JacquiCommunism is a fine thing but when no-one at any level is removable for incompetence or corruption, then the lid of the kettle will eventually blow off…

Reason

That’s how it is in the UK now.

What we want is MPs disenfranchised both materially and monetarily.  Same for privileged business and financial management.

We want them locked up if they’ve been corrupt or done an illegality comparable to one in the ‘outside world’ from their normal environment.

  • It’s the continual payment for failure that’s the problem.
  • It’s a complete lack of any normal moral code that’s the problem.
  • It’s a divorce from the reality of the lives of ordinary people that’s the problem.
  • It’s the one rule for them and one rule for us that’s the problem.

Not one real person in the UK right now thinks any differently to this!  I’m one man in a club of 60 million! They are just 635 and they’d better watch it.

Jacqui Smith and Hoon as well as Alistair Darling are the latest.  They’ve lined their pockets at the public expense.  It’s no good looking sad and pained and saying sorry now.

Fuck them.

***BBC IPSOS MORI poll released this morning This poll result, released this morning reveals that over half the population think MPs are actually corrupt, not, just a little bit untruthful!

This is staggerring and obviously not as much as my inflated sentiment.

However, from checking every radio & TV phone-in, every news article and hoi-poloi comment, the other half never ever stick their head up to defend the rotten bunch!

Says it all really…

Top Banker States the Bleeding Obvious

From the Department of the Bleeding Obvious

World Bank warns of social unrest

In this little snippet we find that bad things are going to happen because of the !

20070529_zoellick_robert71126729_18_1_

Robert Zoellick

I we consider that the top in the world is “The World Bank” (i.e. it’s in the name), and the top bank has a boss (it does – he’s Robert Zoellick), then his admission that “If we do no take measures, there is a risk of a serious human and social crisis with very serious political implications” is really a waste of hot air.  You don’t need to be an ‘expert’, like the discredited bankers to know that!

So, serious social upheaval here we come.

Unless, and only unless, people at all levels take personal responsibility for their actions.  It’s short-term greed that has brought about this situation.

The poor blame the rich, the rich blame the financial whizz-kids, the whizz-kids blame the lack of regulation, the regulators blame the governments and their leaders who then blame everyone as they live in their dubious rules-compliant expense account cocoon.

In fact, everyone who has thought that money was there to grab because ‘everyone does it’, like comfy middle financed on a continuously appreciating housing market, has been living in a dream-world, a of steadily rising graphs where nothing bad happens.

In a limited world of limited resources, this obviously could not and cannot last.  We need fundamental change, to break from the based on consumption.  The current plans to ‘stimulate’ the car industry are a case in point.  We need a better system than making cars just to keep an going by using up the ‘s resources.  In a nutshell;

It’s Not Sustainable

And if we want to continue as individuals and as a , to continue means to sustain.

Let’s all say Sorry

  • The pope says sorry for getting it wrong over the holocaust and the nutty bishop
  • The bankers say sorry for getting it wrong with their greedy decisions that lead to the current economic crisis
  • Cricket captains say sorry for losing some games
  • US car maker bosses say sorry for being crap
  • UK Politicians say sorry for being greedy and setting up an expenses system that allows them to be greedy
  • US presidents say sorry for accidentally bombing civilians
  • IRA says sorry for past bombings of civilians

How long should I make this list?

Q.  Does it make it alright if you do great hurt and harm – and then say sorry?

A.  The answer, I think, depends on your future actions from this moment forward.

If we apologise for a past mistake (and everyone makes mistakes – we are all human), the believability of our statement of sorrow will probably be judged on the likelihood of a repeat ‘mistake’.  That is the power of ‘Reason’ and the only reasonable criterion on which to judge someone’s contriteness.  In other words, is my ‘Cause’ believable?  What ‘Effect’ do I want and is it honourable? … … … it’s a trust thing.

PopeSo do I believe the Pope?  Yes I do, actually, although I can see there’s an agenda at work.  Same for the IRA.

RBSBankers – no.  Car makers – no, they’ve had plenty warnings from intelligent people like myself that their business models were un-sustainable.  There’s the proof.  It’s in the phrase.

UK Politicians on expenses – no, probably.  It’ll take a generation to clear this mess up.

Cricketers and other sportsmen – they shouldn’t need to apologise – it’s only a game mate.

DroneUS Presidents (inc Obama) and any other person who thinks it’s okay to bomb civilians as acceptable ‘collateral damage’ – no way.  This is a continuing abomination against mankind.  Anyone who does this does not have a just cause in the slightest.

suicide car bombSo this includes Obama and Bush, Blair and Brown, all the mad Muslims and their sacrificial bombers and all the mad Jews with their denial of a right to life for an indigenous population.  The continuing excesses and excuses for the deaths, maimings and oppressions of ordinary people in the pursuit of ‘the enemy’ or ‘freedom for…’ or for any ’cause’, is in no way justifiable.  To apologise after each event is pathetic and just proves the inherent weakness of the cause.

There really has to be a better way.

Here’s what Nichiren Daishonin said, many years ago:

nichiren…if the minds of living beings are impure, their land is also impure, but if their minds are pure, so is their land. There are not two lands, pure or impure in themselves. The difference lies solely in the good or evil of our minds. – On Attaining Buddhahood in This Lifetime – The Writings of Nichiren Daishonin, Volume 1, page 4

Israel Phosphorus BombIn this context Nichiren is saying that the law of Cause and Effect works at a personal level which spreads out to encompass the whole environment in which we dwell. He’s saying that the hellish circumstances in the Middle East, Palestine, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, the US, the UK, Afghanistan, Israel and everywhere blighted by devilment, are all derived from the actions of people.  Without people there would be just earth.

It’s the actions which are derived from the causes that people make that bring the hell to these lands.

Israel Phosphorus BombThis means that the causes that bring the bombs to Baghdad are the same as those that bring sleaze to Britain.  In the former, morally bankrupt US & UK politicians and morally bankrupt Muslim leaders using their religion as a shield for oppression, battle it out in the streets of Iraq, Pakistan and elsewhere.  In the UK, the actions of the same morally bankrupt politicians are entwined with their brothers in business, like ivy sucking the juice from the tree of state, and are now both exposed for what they are – greedy children caught with too many sweets in the playground.

They should all, as Nichiren implies, “think pure”, and the country and all we interact with, will be pure.

It’s the only way.

Robert G Allen, Grants, and a Credit Card Slimeball

Introduction

This is a small investigation into mail lists and scammy companies.  Some companies are fine, but I always go by the adage to judge a man by the company he keeps.  This shows how lists spread far beyond their initial purpose when you sign up for something.  It also shows how the privacy policies of these marketting websites are just words wrapped in fluff.

Robert G Allen runs ‘courses’ and is highly public in his utterances.  His website is http://www.robertallenmedia.com

Robert G AllenHere you’ll find the chubby faced entrepreneur open and engaging, and in common with all such sites, remarkably thin in actual methods used despite the vast amount of time extolling their virtues.  They will always say it’s “to protect our secrets” etc.

Funnily enough, when EasyJet was started by Stelios Haji-Ioannou, I remember him going on national telly and saying “I’m starting a new airline – we are different because we are cheap and there are no frills” and it didn’t do him any harm.

Whatever.

The point is that having ‘signed’ up for three scammy looking enterprises, the flood of spam I initially received has now turned into a deluge.  I’m now definitely one of the

“business opportunity enthusiasts who have invested (…) to learn how to make money using Incentivized Freebie Websites”!!! – as I said here.

Spam

Spam DelugeThe fact that Bobbie Allen has a 365 day money-back guarantee and a nice Reno address is besides the point.  Myself, Allen, Grants scams, EBay Success schemes, Christian Debt Solutions and Cash For Gold (to name several, but not all);   we are all now intimately connected by email lists which are passed around with gay abandon as proven in the link above to Monica St John’s Project Payday.  A secret once out is no longer a secret, and it’s no good these sites in their ‘policies’ saying spam is forbidden by their affiliates, which they do, because they don’t care.  They’ve got the money;  and the sites, as shown by the connections below, breed like rabbits!  Several have only lasted a week, a week when they can scam a few folk and then bog off.

Links and Query Strings

The connections run very deep.  While Robert Allen is at robertallenmedia.com, it’s accessed by these links from 2 weeks of spam mail relating to various subjects I’ve listed.

Robert Allen doesn’t get linked to by accident, remember.  He is getting money from them and because of that point, he’s as much part of it as anyone.

You’ll see that there are various links back to similar sounding websites,  most of which pointed to grantsforcitizens.org  initially.  All email was sent to the same person ‘Murdon’, an alias I used only once.  Both websites use the annoying helpful popups as you try to close them down, (something that my webhost has started doing so they need telling off )!  The last three are when ‘Murdon’ passed into someone else’s control.   Epic Media Solutions was a common factor in these.  They are listed in the order received;

Robert Miller?

The similarities in this are obvious.  All these addresses (except the last three) redirect to either Robert Allen as shown or else the odious avatar of Robert Miller, terribly concerned about the current financial crisis.  He’s so concerned that he forgot to leave any real USA contacts in any of the T&C links even though it’s all about US grants!  He’s a busy man.  He has buried a statement from LANETE ENTERPRISES LTD WHOSE REGISTERED ADDRESS IS 3, BELL LANE, GIBRALTAR and helpfully makes a teeny comment that the business is subject to the laws of Nicosia in Cyprus!

Author’s Note: if you wish to be subject to the laws of Cyprus but make a claim against someone in Gibraltar regarding US Gov’t Grants – it’s up to you…

Continuing Links

Concurrent with the above, I also signed up to a scheme using the alias, ‘morton House’.  It’s a good idea to use slightly wrong case as it shows that automation has missed it and allows better traceability…  The signup time was about halfway down the above list.

This bunch start with eBay websites featuring an equally obnoxiously cheery avatar purporting to be Michael Green.  It the same financial tale of woe and optimism.  Robert Allen appears again!  It then morphs into Acai shite.

All the above used a new type of string (for me) in their spam.  Like so:

Both Murdon & morton House were sent mail from Citizen Grant Notification. This proves they are accessing the same email lists.  Ressourcehurtcentral.com sent a lot.  They always redirected to https://www.centennialcard.com/apply/app_info.php which is part of one of the most odious legitimate companies on the world.  Ressourcehurtcentral.com in a web browser calls itself InteractiveMediaSpaces.com and it’s a very soothing, professional-looking space…..  Helpfully, they provide the following comforting sentiment from their office in 73 Greentree Dr Suite #81, Dover, DE 19904

These fat fuckers deserve a paragraph or two here. Their two gaffers seem to be involved in the redistribution of wealth from poor people in financial difficulties up to nice middle America Sports College things, Republican Party donations – as well as increasing the physical bulk of the head banker.  See:

How Centennial Credit Card Terms & Conditions actually Redistribute Wealth Upwards!

….you understand that your initial credit limit will be at least $250.00 and the following fees will be billed to your first statement: Annual Fee of $48.00, Account Set-Up Fee of $29.00, Program Fee of $95.00, Monthly Servicing Fee of $7.00, and an Additional Card Fee of $20.00 per card (if applicable).

Well that’s what it says.  So you borrow $250 and are instantly charged $179!

…well not quite.  Many people on phoning FPB claim that the company says it’s never received stuff and thus charge the ‘customer’ another $29 for late payment.  Well that’s okay and fair.

…apart from the internet access fee and the late and overlimit fees?  Yes….

- Because you only have access to $71 from the $250 you think you have after the first month, you may easily go over $250.  Then you are billed $29.  So you re-arrange the credit limit to cover this for which you are charged $25.

This is exactly the trap people fall into.  To borrow $72 you have to pay back $304 which kind-of makes a mockery of the 9.9% APR!!!

It doesn’t stop there though.  If you are credit-worthy, your limit is automatically increased to say, $500.  But don’t forget the $25 credit limit change fee!!!  Ha Ha.

Conclusion

Needless to say, I’m putting the Centennial Credit Card into the ‘No’ pile along with everything else.  In fact, as a special consideration, First Premier Bank of Sioux Falls are going straight down the German Toilet.  I advise everyone to do the same who gets a spam from them like this.   This is my gift to FPB:

All future spam is going straight in the bin as time’s too short to analyse further.  Thank god for Mailwasher Pro!!  In fact, because FPB are so crap, my well-known bad taste has returned, just for them…
