On The Turn Of A Card..

The kid`s got the jack...
The Game Of Poker
Harriet Harmann was on her usual infuriating form today on the Marr-athon. She presented the part privatisation of the Royal Mail as a crusade to ensure its future .It is ,as she said part of the fabric of the Nation . The answer to the future of things that are the….’ fabric of the nation ‘ ,is privatisation then is it ? It would appear that the swift demise of the Labour Party is also part of that answer
The liar and crook Mandelson has been telling the Unions that if they are unable to put their jobs at risk Labour will lose the next election. He is also talking to the 139 MP`s on the Labour side who are rebelling . Lets just clear up what going on here . The Labour Party is funded and controlled by the Unions now as it was in the 70s . The Unions are concentrated in the Public Sector which between 1997 and 2007 achieved earnings increases of 35% (29% in the private sector ) . This is in addition to retaining working practices from the stone age, jobs for life and final salary pensions . Said paymasters of the Labour Party are well aware that we are about to enter a bit sectional war for dwindling resources and they are the nail that sticks up( Old Jap proverb , when the nail sticks up bang it down )
The only possible tactic their puppets the Labour Party can try is to remind them that if they are brought down, then Mr. Cameron may deal more harshly with them ,still .That is the game of poker being played
David Davies popped up as well to talk about the Convention on Modern Liberty in which people from all ends of the political spectrum, pretend they have something in common. Harman put up a good defence of biometrics DNA data bases and by implication any additional control of information by the state . As she rightly said CCTV is popular and makes people feel safe , as she also rightly said that it has caught rapists and murderers. She might have gone on to tell us that benefit cheats caught alone would pay much of the bill for ID cards but the amount that hangs on the turn of a card is something of an embarassment to the Labour Party . She is quite right, and if driving were banned we would save lives and if cameras were in our homes domestic violence would end .
People who believe in Liberty must embrace risk and accept it . This is why the left and Liberal support is illusory . When that choice has to be made they will always plump for safety . Its in their DNA and they have been caught .

"People who believe in Liberty must embrace risk and accept it. This is why the left and Liberal support is illusory . When that choice has to be made they will always plump for safety . Its in their DNA and they have been caught."

Excellent points, Newms. And of course it's not just safety that is in the left's DNA, corruption, control and elitism are a big part of the DNA of most of them too.

Take, Harperson, for example, how would she get by if she had to come into the real world and her reckless nocturnal speeding at over 100 mph was actually punished with imprisonment instead of a wee nod and a wink from the police?

I didn`t mean that I do not accept the safety and security argument Flo,. I just meant that you have to balance the two.
You can go too far either way

In response to your earlier query..

Gordon Brown explains Milo Economics to the other leaders of the G20 this week..

Milo's M&M Enterpises syndicate is selling seven-cent Maltese eggs to the mess halls at a price of only five cents an egg while still making a profit.

How?

Seven-cent Maltese eggs cost the sellers in Malta four and one-quarter cents each to procure. Milo is actually buying the eggs from himself in Malta, which means that as a seller there he is making two and three-quarter cents each egg. After he resells the seven-cent eggs to the mess halls for five cents each, he is still making a three-quarter cent profit per egg.

However, it turns out that Milo's Maltese eggs are actually one-cent Sicilian eggs which he has secretly shipped to Malta to drive up their value, yielding him another three and one-quarter cents profit per egg.

"I make a profit of three and one-quarter cents apiece, and everybody comes out ahead."

"Do I have a share?"

"Everybody has a share."

"Does Orr have a share?"

"Everybody has a share."

"And Hungry Joe? He has a share too?"

"Everybody has a share."

"Well, I'll be damned."

"What's good for M&M enterprises is good for the country"

Its perfect New Labour. It seems reasonable,its popular, everyone gains, everyone benefits, everyone makes a profit, there's no cost,its a fantastic sound bite.What's good for M&M enterprises is good for the country"

{But Orr crashed his b-25 bomber into the sea and when the crew went to inflate their life jackets they failed to inflate because Milo had removed the twin carbon-dioxide cylinders from the inflating chambers to make the strawberry and crushed-pineapple ice-cream sodas he served in the officer's mess hall and had replaced them with mimeographed notes that read: "What's good for M & M Enterprises is good for the country."}

Chaplin: Cheer up Yossarian. Milo's getting oranges for the mess and the syndicate is making so much money!

Yossarian: We won't see any of that money. We won't even see the oranges.

Catch 22

Bill Quango, you've got it in a nutshell!

Newms: "and if cameras were in our homes domestic violence would end"

The cameras already are in our homes, Newms, heat seeking devices that can see through bricks and mortar.

A related matter: Why has MI5 put army units on standby for riots over the banks?

And is it true that Brown has already backed down on his undertaking to guarantor bank deposits up to £50K?
