On the day of the by-election. You can watch LIVE tomorrow (20th November) 12.30pm: UK Parliament to debate Money Creation for first time in 170 years. via @PositiveMoneyUKThe Bank for International Settlements (BIS) is “protected by international treaty. Its assets can never be seized, even in times of war.” BIS opened for business on 17 May 1930 in Basel, Switzerland, where it still has its headquarters today. Since its founding, the BIS has established two representative offices: in the…

For OoL readers – best pre-Christmas wine buys

Speaking with Julia about this, we thought we might go outside the OoL brief pre-Christmas for readers who buy wine in and are looking at the below £15 mark. Wiggia is a non-snobby wine buff with an eye to what people would like to try and can afford and thus we think this a valuable guide. He consumes a huge variety of these, so it is in mellow mood he…

The case for Catalonian independence

The case for Catalonian independence

Foreword by JH: The brief of OoL is liberty and you could argue that breaking up a nation is liberty but you could argue that it isn’t. For example, the EU divides England into nine regions it wants to fund separately and therefore control – example is the socialist Common Purpose run Yorkshire Forward and the old South West of England Regional Development Agency from Blair’s time. Catalonia though has a…

Lord Hill

September 13, 2014 3 Comments

From Wiggia: Much has been made of the appointment of Lord Hill to the post of European Commisioner, that David Cameron should put him forward for the job was an understatement of some magnitude , as he was to all intents and purpose invisible. But as the same Lord Hill is now to get the EU post of overseeing the EU’s financial services “shake up”, one would think some background…

The Rise of the Rothschilds

Sometimes a post is clearly for the blogger’s own site, sometimes it’s clearly an OoL affair. Sometimes it needs to go on both as a reference archive. This is a long piece, no doubt garnering few comments, if any but that’s no reason not to put it up – better to have a reference bloggers can use than hidden away in the minutes of some select committee. Ken Craggs is…

The NHS and switching GPs

May 6, 2014 Comments Off
By

Guestpost by Wiggia: http://www.nhs.uk/NHSEngland/AboutNHSservices/doctors/Pages/patient-choice-GP-practices.aspx In October this year, patients will, in theory, be able to switch GPs. Oh joy, some of us will say, but of course, as with all things, it seems there is a catch. This will only be possible if the practices have signed up to the scheme in the first place. Well, there’s a surprise. The obvious problem is that in rural areas and areas such…

Miller and small government

April 10, 2014 3 Comments
By

Wiggia writes: A trend running through the general commentary on the Maria Miller affair, has been why have we a “culture” minister in the first place, it is an unnecessary dept. A recent HOC select committee report said that a third of all MPs or PPS would have ministerial status, the report suggested that 70 – 80 was sufficient and that from MPs. The increase has been relentless over the…

The EU, UKIP, the Harrogate Agenda, Autonomous Mind

The EU, UKIP, the Harrogate Agenda, Autonomous Mind

By Wiggia: There is something very strange going on, with the three main parties worried that UKIP might at last have enough potential votes to effect there status quo, those who in the past broadly supported the party and Farage are putting the boot in. The reasons to a degree are valid if the minutiae of things said or printed or indeed not are examined in that way. § http://autonomousmind.wordpress.com/2014/02/10/it-has-been-laid-out-clearly-but/…

Lord Smith and the Environmental Agency

Lord Smith and the Environmental Agency

From Wiggia: The Environment Agency has been getting a lot of stick recently, especially over the flooding in the Somerset Levels. Now nobody can stand in the way of nature when conditions are way above anything that can be anticipated and nobody ever will, but this authority has undoubtedly failed in its duty of maintenance time and again regards rivers and watercourses. A little bit of history spells out that…

Quote of the (last) month

  With apologies to Julia who runs her own consistently good feature…   I want to make it clear that I am not calling liberals fascists. There’s a big difference. A fascist would invade Poland. A liberal would just whine about Poland being homophobic and try to get it fired.

I’m having difficulty today answering all the comments on my recent post here http://www.4liberty.org.uk/2014/01/01/like-theres-no-tomorrow/ and since people have done me the courtesy of commenting (and politely to boot) and as I have cased offence in at least one case, Ithought I’d do this as a work-around. Mike CunninghamJanuary 1, 2014 and the reason for the display of that disgusting symbol which reigned over such bestialities as Belsen, Dachau and Auschwitz…

Like there’s no tomorrow

I work for the underclass. I also work for a bunch of other people who are in the financial mire – temporarily or permanently – and from which I suspect no amount of health insurance and voluntary pension saving could ever have diverted them; pace my purist libertarian former comrades. Basically, a major part of my job is to help the unemployed or over-parented to understand and sometimes to do…

Do not criticize Islam

September 24, 2013 16 Comments

A bit late from Wiggia [my fault] but better than not at all: Is David Cameron really stupid, or is he prepared to quash any criticism of Islam at any cost, today’s quote on the Kenya terrorist attack “These appalling terrorist attacks that take place, where the perpetrators claim they do it in the name of religion, they don’t.” and finishes: “They don’t represent Islam or Muslims in Britain or…

More immigration please …….

By Wiggia: More immigration please……………….. Two conflicting reports from the Office of Budget Responsibility and the Equality Human Rights Commission are symptomatic of the muddled thinking when it comes to immigration, the OBR report published in July is only available in PDF form so a report on the report is a good guide to the contents. http://niesr.ac.uk/blog/migration-and-public-finances-long-run-obrs-fiscal-sustainability-report Much of the OBRs report is based on assumptions and as with all…
