Labour Scourge Of Tax Avoiders Is A Tax Dodger? WTF is going on?

April 29, 2015


Margaret Hodge: Labour’s scourge of tax avoiders is outed as a tax avoider (image source)

Ho hum – one week to go to the election and no news worth reporting, we see pictures of Cameron, looking shiny, Miliband looking confused Clegg looking resigned and Nigel Farage holding a pint of beer.

But there is nothing worth talking about.

Yesterday Cameron announced a tax freeze on Income Tax, National Instrance and VAT. Miliband and Ed balls called it a gimmick (which it was)

A few days ago Miliband announced a reduction in Stamp Duty. Cameron, Osborne and Clegg called it a gimmick because that’s what it was.

Green candidates continued to talk bollocks, SNP candidates continued to talk about when Scotland rules the world and Russell Brand recommended that his followers (who are not voting if they take his recent advice) should support Labour.

UKIP candidates continued to talk about the issues most voters want candidates to talk about but their words of common sense were not reported in the media.

Oh and former Labour Minister and current chair of the Public Accounts committee, Margaret Hodge (nee Oppenheimer), who was Labour’s most vigorous critic of tax avoidance by the super rich was exposed as a tax cheat. A report in The Times which is behind a paywall so check it out second hand at IB Times) reveals that Hodge used the Lichtenstein Disclosure Facility (LDF) to transfer onshore 96,000 shares in a private steel­ trading business established by her father. The LDF is a controversial tax deal established in 2009 enabling the transfer of assets out of the Principality of Liechtenstein, a tiny European country with notably low tax rates, to the UK.

It was created as an incentive for those with undeclared income or unpaid taxes to repatriate their assets by offering preferentially time­-limited tax liabilities, substantially lower penalties and no threat of criminal prosecution.

The Stemcor shares Hodge received in this way in 2011, following the winding­ up of the Liechtenstein Trust, were worth about £1.5 million. Her shareholding was properly declared in the parliamentary register of members’ financial interests, but she has not spoken of offshore vehicles or the LDF.

As Hodge has singled out the LDF system for criticism while using it herself her attitude would seem a tad hypocritical to say the least. But then what else would we expect from a member of Labour, the party that claims it speaks for the working class while really representing the interests of lawyers, tax eaters and ‘the stinking rich’ (including Margaret Hodge (nee Oppenheim).

You will not get to know much about the dodgy tax affairs of Margaret Hodge from mainstream media of course, to report fully the dishonesty and hypocrisy of an elitist might open a massive can of worms and take down most of the establishment.

Anti-Science – The Church Of Scienceology’s Latest Pejorative Term For People Who Think And Question.

April 17, 2015

Like the Roman I seem to see graft and corruption everywhere.

We are not the only web site to take exception to accusations of being anti – science and all the other pejorative terms used by the Church Of Scienceology disciples to deflect criticism from independent minded people who are smart anough to ask, as Cicero did two thousand years ago, Cui Bono? Which corporate business benefits.

Climate change, GM crops, the Higgs Boson, Dark matter, Big Bang theory, the science is not settled on any of them. And anyway we are all entitled to an opinion.

What An Arse

April 9, 2015

Yesterday we featured a picture post of a billboard adverstising an Easter egg hunt. Anal Egg Hunt, the wording said. Cue tasteless jokes and ribald banter.

An unfortunate error you might well think, but was it? In view of this story we have to wonder just WTF was going to be happening in the course of that Anal egg hunt. Or is it a case of Some people will do anything to get in the Guinness Book Of Records.

The Solar Eclipse Is Over and Done With – Thank You Great Boggart

March 21, 2015

Has that stupid, boring eclipse business finished yet? I first saw an eclipse when aged about ten, my Dad had to go and stand on a hill in Wales and talk to a bunch of very boring people who prattled on about how exciting it was, because the newspaper he worked for had given away free mylar specs to view it with (failed stunt, all the other papers gave them away too).<br />
<br />
There was this massive build up, then it went dark for a couple of minutes, and then when the ghost of Dylan Thomas should have appeared, reciting in sepulchral voice “Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night,” everything went back to normal. And since then I’ve thought, “When you’ve see one eclipse, you’ve seen them all, they’re like Carnival parades really.”<br />
<br />
<br />

Greek moon goddess Selene – more interesting than the eclipse?

<div style=”text-align: center;”><em>Not the eclipse but Greek moon goddess Selene (nice legs) who has an inalienable right to get between us and the Sun (<a href=”https://boggartblog.files.wordpress.com/2015/03/192b5-seleneaceo.jpg”>image source</a>)</em></div>
<br />
See, the thing about natural phenomena is they’re just so natural. Brian Cock and Dara O’Boring are just people who live very sad lives but when you have more testicles than brain cells and its by no means certain either has a full set of testicles, I suppose soul destroyingly mundane can seem very very exciting.<br />
<br />
Anyway there isn’t another here until 2090 (they’re happening around the world all the time) which is probably disappointing for scientists and other magical thinkers, who seem to think each one is a never before experienced event, but as I only plant to live to age 125 with a bit of luck I might peg out before the next.

AK47 Assault Rifles Used in Sweden Pub Attack, Death Toll Expected to Rise

March 19, 2015

Immigrant led terror hits the streets of another peaceful European nation. No doubt our leftie friends will be eager to tell us this kind of shit culturally enriches our societies. Now here’s the appalling news from Sweden:

Two people have been killed, and eight seriously injured after attackers burst into a crowded pub screening a football game and opened fire in the Swedish city of Gothenburg, reports from Sweden say. It is not known if the casualty count is final.

Information from Swedish police warns that people should expect the death toll to rise over the next few hours. Witnesses described the shooting as having started extremely quickly and being over before anybody understood what had happened. TheLocal.se reports that, in the words of a witness who was in the bar at the time: “I didn’t have time to think what was happening. Then I saw that my friend was bleeding. I tried to stop the flow of blood as well as I could with my hands”.

terrorist shooting in sweden

Despite strict gun laws imposed in many European countries, the attack demonstrates the ease with which organised criminals and terrorist gangs can obtain high-powered assault rifles via criminal networks in the former Soviet republics. The weapons used in the Gothenburg attack, the motive for which has not yet been determined, are the same as the Paris Charlie Hebdo killings, and the Belgium Jewish museum shooting, among others.

Although no suspects have yet been arrested, police are reportedly saying the attack is an incidence of gang-related violence, which has been on the rise in Scandinavia, due to an influx of immigrants from lawless third world failed states. The apparent normality of such violence is summed up by the comments of one local resident who remarked that despite the fact “this is actually a quiet area” he admitted “there have been occasional shootings”.

According to Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter, the conflict in Gothenburg, Sweden’s second largest city is largely between a group of immigrant cartels, determined to capture the local drug trade. Over one fifth of all those now living in the city are immigrants, with some of the largest groups coming from Somalia, Iraq, and Iran. In Gothenburg and other Swedish cities, extortion of business owners by migrant gangs offering protection from other such gangs is becoming a fact of life for some, with police “powerless” to act. This is leading to ‘white flight’, an exodus of European residents and businesses from the cities.

War by Media and the Triumph of Propaganda

Another Kick In The Bollocks For Warmageddonists And CAGWARTS*

March 14, 2015

* CAGWARTS – Carbon – driven Anthropogenic Global Warming Alternative Reality Trolls.
Scientific progress
I’ve had many arguments with the Warmageddonists, the people who have been saying that the ‘scientific consensus’ had agreed if we did not shut down all coal, oil and gas related activites (that is, just about all human activities except unprotected sex and sleeping) the earth was going to turn into a giant furnace and we would all burn. <br />

<br />
Those of us audacious enough to ask when this was going to happen felt the horizon shifting. When the scaremongering first started, the deadline for frying was “after dinner”. Then it go to “Tomorrow …… or the day after tomorrow perhaps,” then “next year”, “before 2050,” and eventually “soon.”<br />
<br />
Don’t you love that scientific precision.<br />
<br />
The reason the Warmageddonists and CAGWARTS could not give a sensible answer of course was that the scientists were studying computer models of reality and worse, they were changing the fictitious data they put in when the algorithms did not give the answer they wanted. In the real world, rather than warming like a fire someone has dumped a few gallons of petrol on, the earth ws warming a tiny little bit, just as it always has.<br />
<br />
What’s more while the Warmageddonists screamed “the science is settled” and insisted that “97% of scientists agree global warming is happening faster than the models predict and will wipe out man, beast and beetroot if we do not stop living NOW!<br />
<br />
There was no such scientific consensus, the study cited as proof of it had falsified the figures by looking at a lot of climate studies and simly assuming any that did not specifically state climate change was NOT being caused by carbon dioxide emissions from human activity agreed with that proposition that it was.<br />
<br />
In fact most of those studies did not even look for causes but at likely effects.<br />
<br />
The purported but ridiculous derogatory term “climate deniers” was invented to belittle people intelligent enough to question the dodgy science on which the Warmageddon scare was based, although none f the sceptics had ever tried to deny that there is a climate (there are in fact many, depending on what part of the world you are in).<br />
<br />
But all the while as the Warmageddionists screamed “scientific consensus and demanded a one million per cent tax be put on everything their puritanical left wing prejudices dictated was not polititically correct, sensible researchers were looking at many possible causes of the changes in climate that have happened in cycles for billions of years. Like this one:<br />
<br />
<br />

<h3>Scientists: Orbital Variations Main Cause of Climate Change</h3>
Global warming theorists have taken yet another hit with a new study out of Denmark which demonstrates that variations in Earth’s orbit are the primary causes of climate change, and have been for at least the last 1.4 billion years.<br />
<br />
Scientists from the University of Southern Denmark and the China National Petroleum Corporation investigated marine sediment from the Xiamaling Formation in China and determined that the sediment shows evidence that “the same orbital forcing that caused the climate to change 1.4 billion years ago is the underlying force behind global warming today,<br />
<br />
The research, <a href=”http://www.pnas.org/content/early/2015/03/06/1502239112.abstract”>published in PNAS</a> (Proceedings Of The National Academy Of Sciences Of The United Stastes Of America), states: “There is a wealth of evidence pointing to dramatic short-term climate change on Earth over the last few million years. Much of this climate change is driven by variations of Earth’s orbit around the Sun with characteristic frequencies known as Milankovitch cycles.”<br />
<br />
<br />
The fact that the research has been published exposes the lying nature of the Warmageddonist lobby. They have always argued that no respectable scientific journal would publish any research that did not support the consensus because “The Science Is Settled”.

Google attempts to become the Internet’s Ministry of Truth

March 9, 2015
Is this what the Ministry of Truth will look like

Google is looking at rolling out yet another revision to their search engine algorithm by curtailing your results to sites it considers to have the most “trustworthiness.”? New Scientist explains:

Google’s search engine currently uses the number of incoming links to a web page as a proxy for quality, determining where it appears in search results. So pages that many other sites link to are ranked higher. This system has brought us the search engine as we know it today, but the downside is that websites full of misinformation can rise up the rankings, if enough people link to them.

A Google research team is adapting that model to measure the trustworthiness of a page, rather than its reputation across the web. Instead of counting incoming links, the system – which is not yet live – counts the number of incorrect facts within a page. “A source that has few false facts is considered to be trustworthy,” says the team (arxiv.org/abs/1502.03519v1). The score they compute for each page is its Knowledge-Based Trust score.

[…]

The software works by tapping into the Knowledge Vault, the vast store of facts that Google has pulled off the internet. Facts the web unanimously agrees on are considered a reasonable proxy for truth. Web pages that contain contradictory information are bumped down the rankings. Read full article

Read the full new Scientist article and you find that Google, with the approval of alternative religion sites like New Scientist, is intending to control what we see online. This move comes shortly after a long campaign to head off the Obama administration’s plan to control what information is available on the web by guaranteeing net neutrality now the search engine giant is saying they will control what we can see, by agreeing with shadowy cabals of billionaires which bullshit is true and which is not true.

The Ministry of Truth features in George Orwell’s novel ‘1984’. All demartments of the Big Brother regime in the dydtopian novel have ironic names, the Minidtry Of Peace is dedicated to perpetual war, the Ministry of Love suppresses dissidence and turtures opponents of the regime and the Ministry of Truth generates propaganda and rewrites history and news so nothing unfavourable to the regime is ever published.

To beat evil Google’s Ministry Of Truth type censorship and suppression of diversity, you should make sure tour computer’s security is as strong as it can possibly be (use Linux for browsing if you possibly can) and use ToR (The Onion Router or Startpage as your search engine of choice. Both give anonymous browsing and true net neutrality, your search results will not have ‘some results removed’.

Syriza Official Vows Greece Will Kill EU-US Trade Deal as ‘Gift to All European People’

February 7, 2015

An official with Greece’s newly elected Syriza party may have killed a proposed EU-U.S. trade deal that has faced opposition from civil society. The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), now facing its eighth round of talks between negotiators this week in Brussels. The TTIP, which would be the biggest trade deal ever, has been criticized as a corporate-friendly deal that threatens food and environmental safety under the guise of “harmonization” of regulations.

Paedophila is normal in human males? Is it really, Professor?

February 6, 2015

University Professors settle into their new, purpose built faculty on Devils Island</em><br /><em>(Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman in Papillion – Image Source)
Regular readers of this blog will not need to be reminded that we don’t have much time for academics. For the most part they tend to be useless individuals who couldn’t hold down jobs as shelf stackers or burger flippers were they forced to live in the real world.

Due to the bizarre way our education system assess human intelligence however, i.e. by the ability to memorise information from books and repeat it ad infinitum rather than real problem solving abilities, they tend to be very well rewarded for being part of the intellectual elite, in spite of the fact that they contribute little of value to society but instead live lives of idleness and self indulgence.

Thus I was not surprised to see amid all the recent kerfuffle about paedophiles, some professor trying to justify paedophila as normal. Well why not, that motherfucker Freud built an entire scientific discipline around justifying his pervey desires.

Pervey desires are common among academics it seems. “Paedophilic interest is natural and normal for human males,” according to a presentation given at a Cambridge University conference last year.

It went on to claim, “At least a sizeable minority of normal males would like to have sex with children … Normal males are aroused by children.”

Well normal University Professors maybe, but while I loved my children and love my grandchildren in a way that is healthy and normal in a parent of grandparent, I tend to think of children as whinging, screaming little snot factories who should be kept far away from normal human males. And that goes for all the adiult males I count as friends. To all of us children are about as sexually alluring as cold pea soup.

Back in the Seventies or early Eighties, the era of ‘live like you wanna live’, hippy cod philosophy and Kinsey bollocks, touchy feely celebrities and the infamous PIE, the Paedophile Information Exchange and all-join-hands-and-sing-kumbaya people were always coming out with such shite.

In fact several young political activists who are now senior figures in the Labour Party supported PIE’s bid to have the age of consent lowered from sixteen to FOUR. Equal rights for Paedos and all that.

The statement that paedophilia is “natural and normal” was one of the central claims of an academic presentation delivered, at the invitation of the organisers.

Other presentations included “Liberating the paedophile: a discursive analysis,” and “Danger and difference: the stakes of hebephilia.” (a sexual preference for children in early puberty, typically 11 to 14-year-olds)

Now I defend the idea that universities ought to be places where all ideas can be given a hearing and if all ideas were being treated fairly I would say discussing this stuff is fine. But when many Universities, Cambridge prominent among them, are denying a platform to those wishing to speak against the global warming scam, take issue with the denial of free speech to opponents of feminism or those who have evidence of the harm dome to humans and animals by the consumption of GM organisms, or who wish to argue against uncontrolled immigration then I start to veer towards the view that it is time we closed most of our universities and banged up the creepy, pervy, self interested academics in safe refuges modelled on the old <a href=”http://www.prisonhistory.net/famous-prisons/devils-island/”>Devils Island penal colony.

How the fall of France could accelerate the rise of UKIP

November 1, 2014

Don’t hold French stocks says former broker Farage as our Gallic neighbour sinks deeper into the Euroshite.
The faltering French economy continues to stall under President Francois Hollande, which is boosting anti-EU sentiment across Europe and particularly in Germany, where the efficiency worshipping taxpayers increasingly resent having to bail out their impecunious Eurozone partners.

More and more people are seeing very clearly the European Union and the Euro single currency system were utopian pipe dreams doomed to fail one the world (and German taxpayers) realized only Germany’s powerhouse economy could support basket case nations.

It is worth noting that one of the biggest issues facing the British government, the fiscal decicit could be almost wiped out by our leaving the EU and no longer having to contribute £55 million a day to feed its parasitic bureaucracy.
