Cute Baby Frogs

Hooray! I never thought I could kiss a Frenchman until I read this breaking story in The Times.

You know, between Merkel and Sarkozy, there might be a slim chance of heading-off the calamity of stagflation printing more money will invariably cause, at least until the next UK General Election – when we will dispose of our current, bankrupt regime and hit the spending brakes.

The fact the leaders of France and Germany are Conservatives should not escape people’s notice. At least David Cameron is more or less singing from the same hymn sheet.

Remember, these people are our only hope. (God help us.)

Toilet Paper Money

Ambrose Evans-Pritchard argues it here, wild Will Hutton elsewhere (see earlier blogpost) and now another consistent advocate of looninomics, that true Brit, full of the same kind of internationalist manure you’d expect to hear from a dyed-in-the-wool Trot.

I’m beginning to wonder if this whole economic crisis isn’t just a really smart – and I mean really smart – plot by business hacks to take over and enslave us.

That’s the only reason I can think for them wishing hyperinflation and ruin upon the entire population of the western world. Mind you, the extremist, bailoutist Yank and Brit governments seem to want to take us on the same road to hell. So maybe the hacks are just the Comical Alis of this latest little human catastrophe.

Or it could just be that they want Gordon Brown’s babies because they just love the way he talks. It floats their boats.

Looninomics might be contagious, of course. And they hang around the loonies a lot, you know. Well, who actually knows (that’s the point)?

I’m not sure which motive or cause is the more weird, to be honest. I am sure that only anarchists and the postmodern economists who got us into this mess agree with these three vapid visionaries. Mind you, my guess is it’s who they read – or read. A sad love-in, then.

(Stagflation here we come.)

Tiresome money hacks. Shut-up.

It seems there is nothing much to learn directly from the MPs allowances document released today, apart from the fact that MPs all seem to take full advantage of the so-called second home allowance – even the multi millionaires, of whom there are many. Fair play to them I suppose. Just obeying the rules (they make-up).

There was one little tidbit in the rightly underused Column 7, “Staff Cover and Other Costs”, which deals with absence and illness.

The highest figure in this column (by miles) ? The entry for one Blair, Rt Hon Tony.

Click on the the naff snapshot to see for yourself:

Very odd, seeing as he’d long left his office and the country by then. Yes, yes – he was still an (awol) MP. But he was also PM – according to the previous General Election.

My theory: since the absent member of staff was Blair himself, he claimed the allowance and gave it to Brown for being his “cover”. (A sort of ‘supply PM’).

Shocking 😉
