More press coverage given to international movement of 4/5 very rich footbal coaches; than
X thousand losing their jobs and way of life in NE backwater.
Welcome to the treasure zone... GOSH

Top 'big shots' at FIFA get eight year ban off the Ethics Committee
Two of the 'greatest' footballing nations on the planet are pushing the pitch against corruption in football
A fine goal GOSH

Now! if! The US of A and Switzerland were sorting out corruption in banking...
Surely! they must know a lot more about corrupt banks than corrupt footie officials
Everbody should have a hobby GOSH

Swiss banks - The derisory name 'Gnomes of Zurich' is Uk based after a financial fracas in the time of Harold Wilson-
are not renowned as 'tax havens'
Switzerland is the land of secret bank accounts (Dont mention the war)
Remember when HMRC done a deal with the Swiss bank authorities; to reveal a certain no. of dodgy secret account holders
Can you recall hearing any of the named! - nor! can I GOSH

The conservative cabinet has an ethics committee of three...
One to open the window...
One to chuck everything out...
And! A.N.Other to look the other way...
Don't even start..... GOSH

Swiss banks are linked to German banks by a common languge.
Yet the common language of the German led Europe Central Bank is English
GOSH

Germany is the only country to have more than one head honcho in the ECB
The chief economist to the ECB is German - He's not called herman... GOSH

The president of the ECB used to work for Goldman Sachs, MIT and Harvard.
A pan Europe anti-austerity demo was organised for the opening of the new ECB building in Frankfurt
It turned quite violent; with water cannon, arrests etc.
Did you garner that from the 'popular press' GOSH

The common language of world banking is UK (not US) english...
The common language of tax fiddling in any form or country; is English
Makes one proud to be British! GOSH

The UK now has more drunks than;
A wimbledon winetasters wake...
Makes one proud to be British! GOSH


GREECE
Will more Greeks migrate if the germans take over!








THURS 24/12 2015




Every year seems to have more and more emphasis on the Xmas shopping figures.
Are we being subconsciously groomed to be more financially aware; or spend more!
I've never been a shopper-I've never shopped... GOSH

In the era of post photo shop; what's being massaged the most?
Models figures... or; accountants...
Do you need glasses GOSH

Different ways of earning a living have different ways of accounting - concise or convenient...
It's always been that way.
Nation states used to gather 'all' (much) this information and make public the national accounts
They even made forecasts on the strengh of these figures - the rate of growth GOSH

Other 'organisations' used to pass comment on these figures - as men do...
We've (The've) got it wrong again dad! - just a bit though...
For they were all in the game of making a living from money together GOSH

It is still the same game; however, now... The really greedy gits are managing the moola.
An international, well organised gang of the greediest gits... With the nation states obediantly clinging on...GOSH

Technology affects the ways of manufacturing and society...
Technology has spewed out a new form of currency...
Is it the digital dollar! GOSH

Could be soon! at the moment it's called bitcoin.
Blockchain is the digital technology that underpins bitcoin.
To gosh or not to GOSH...GOSH

Blockchain is simply...
Think of a hard to crack password; complicate it at least tenfold...
And then.... GOSH

We already have electronic banking - with mans (gnomes) built in skullduggery.
Bit coin banking means total anonimity.
Those in the game will be able to see the money moving ...
But not have a clue 'who' is moving it.
A 'tipping point'- presently, those who have bitcoin accounts are called 'miners' - GOSH

The rich with diposable income - don't mention the bankers - have started investing in the cashless society digital currency
Will bitcoin be a; hovercraft, concord(e) or a titanic?
Don't mention the car and carbon footprint GOSH

The yanks (some) are mooting, theoretically, a new currency; 'the time dollar'.
Will it last as long as the 'byker beer token' GOSH

The 'time dollar', perfectly and precisley, sums up Western world economics...
Will the buying up of manufacturing, using funny money by the few; have time to turn it into real money.
...Let's face the music and dance - GOSH<


GREECE
Will the Greeks be dancing proudly in the street; or hunkered down in their banker owned hovels?









FRI 25/12 2015



Merry Xmas to all the recording artists who...
Really meant it... GOSH

Merry Xmas to all the robots that answer the phone...
And ! The metal ones - Grrrr GOSH

Merry Xmas to all the posh plebs
You're not a pleb - you are just someone special! GOSH

Merry Xmas to all the MPs' staff who sent Xmas cards to the constituents...
Without the MP signing them GOSH

What does one call a cross between a greedy neurotic narcisssist and a liar?
A politician of course...
There's some that say we deserve the politicians we get...GOSH


A yuletide log to you all - well a log...


Merry Xmas to all the slaphead bankers who got a Xmas bonus
Sorry! I'll let you read that again GOSH

Merry Xmas to all who've had their head slapped by bankers...
And! still angry enough to do something about it... Goddamn it GOSH

Merry Xmas to all that can't afford a merry xmas
especially those that live on the streets...
and those that help them... GOSH

Merry Xmas to those that Father Xmas didn't visit...


Yeah! and a very merry Xmas from the bankers and greedy gits GOSH...


GREECE
Like us; the Greeks celebrate Xmas - they don't get as merry...
This year; they might...








SAT 26/12 2015



What did you get for Xmas?
Was it; well! great! or GOSH...

Did you get: boxing gloves... oven gloves... a drum kit... an elaborate game to play...
Or! A bucket GOSH...

A bucket to bail out your house!
A bucket to bail out the bankers! Again GOSH

A bucket full of affluence!
A bucket full of effluence

A bucket of fast lane food!
A bucket of slow lane leftovers!

A bucket full of credit!
A bucket full of debit!

A bucket with goal in!
A bucket with a hole in

Some people just get a bag...
Supermarkets are trying to phase out plastic bags.
Yet! This country is intent on making more people live out of them...GOSH

In the 'old days' the men were known as tramps, etc...
There wasn't that many - especially in the cold northern back waters.

Now; we have bag ladies...
Many people ( from all levels of income - or socio-economic strata; if one prefers ) prefer to pretend that bag ladies dont exist..
Are Bag ladies the unintended consequence of feminism - don't mention inequality...
Just asking GOSH

Isn't boxing day also the day of that cute old pastime - Find the fox...
I'll agree to legally agree to the 'return' of fox hunting; If...
Those who willingly participate; go into a draw.
The lucky/unlucky winner is hunted the next day by 30 foxes + chums...
Tally Ho... let's go GOSH


GREECE
Will the bloodthirsty bankers be hunting Greece Today!










SUN 27/12 2015



Banks will do everthing for you -except wipe your aspidistra...
If one has a sort of business account - they will do that as well
Some financial gangs have been known to wipe your business off the face of the planet...GOSH

This year the most (legal/moral) active division of investment banking has been; 'mergers and acquisitions'.
Everthing has started 'looking the same' for over a generation now...
Banks lend; government generated, leveraged, money to manufacturing; then grab some of it back for advice and fees...GOSH

Some one tell me again that the large corporations are sitting on huge mounds of money; but won't invest.
The mound couldn't be based on funny money - 'the time dollar' (b)(m)illionaires...
Is that a buffer, I see before me...GOSH

Oxbridge is to hold an annual economics debate...
Which hides the most cash! floorboards or havens...
Ken Dodd and Dave Cameroon refused their guest speaker invitations...
A No gains GOSH.

The banks have been asked/advised/requested to lend money to the plebs...
When you play with funny money - there's not enough debt to go round...
It's not the risk Again GOSH - Well bash me with a buffer GOSH

Some banks have been 'fined' for laundering huge mounds of mucky money...
Some people have been jailed for dealing/taking; a tiny heap of drugs
Life is a bitch...GOSH

Remember when prince handy andy flogged his house for nearly twice the going rate.
There's one law for the rich and a few forms for the poor...
Get em filled and filed PLEB GOSH

Heard any of the secret account names yet...
The press won't leak...Yet GOSH

Mr. Lynton crosby is to be knighted by dodgy dave.
He is sound-bited as the aussie that won the tory election...
Not as the bloke with the NHS, alcohol and tabaco lobbying firm...
Still! a posh pleb that smokes and drinks won't need the NHS GOSH


GREECE
Wonder if the Greeks will laugh when funny money privatises their national assets.








MON 28/12 2015



When I came out of the Army in the early seventies...
Discharge by purchase - it's the only way, 'old boy'...
Get out GOSH

I got a job, as a sparky, house bashing (LIVE) for Sunderland Cooncil - accent not racism
One house; family of six - four girls; twelve to toddler and a dog - stuck out like a mobile roaming bill.
Gosh! I remember it well...

The open fire was fuelled by wood that had been round the block; and... Lunch/dinner/miday meal, was a pan full of turnip ( no where near a wholesalers - never mind a shop)+
Three steak pies - the toddler, toddled round the living room with her third of a pie...
The dog followed; licking it...
No GOSH for them GOSH

In them days a pleb could duck and dive to scrape out a living/existence.
Now; an out of work - what ever - (send them to the colonies) has to rely on the state...
We've got you by the court and shirleys GOSH

In this worlds UK if you are surplus to the cheap/scum of the earth, labour demand.
You become an enemy of the state - euthanasia or castration! pal...
Any 'one' for tennis; or polo GOSH

In the forces; the ones that came up through the ranks were the biggest bastards. The rotten rich (some call them 'elite') stayed in the background...
Such gallantry GOSH

Is civvy street the same! There seems to be an endless supply of wannabe rich ex (posh) plebs in the political scene (markets).
Here's your thirty bob and bonus - now get thee gone GOSH...

I can understand a 'person' wanting more; or trying to emulate the rich (keep up now)...
But; I seriously struggle with slapping someone else's head to achieve it...
Gosh...

You! yes you; Just voted to kill a foreigner quickly...
Not a UK citizen/neighbour slowly...
You wouldn't do that.... would you GOSH

All the worlds a stage...
Only civilisations have stages...
Is the veneer of civilisation getting thinner again...GOSH


GREECE
A country at a very important stage... of; deciding its future...

The value of your investment may go down as well as up...
Here I sit broken hearted - payed a penny; and only...
Gosh! biffer ! have we won ...
One might as well throw darts at a dartboard...GOSH

Gambling... sorry... investing; has come a long way since deregulation.
To those in the game - it was known as big bang
A loud GOSH GOSH...

When dodgy dave sneeringly confronts and castigates the opposition for 'talking down the economy'.
It is cant and hypocrisy at its ironic best...
How do they! (the opposition!) let him get away with it GOSH

Hedge funds bet against winning and use massive funding to swing 'things' in their favour...
Hedge funds made huge donations to the tory election campaign...
A greedy git giving GOSH

Hedge funds have (treacherously) inveigled their way into mainstream investment banking.
A 'come/let us into the tent'; let's make a few bob together...
Now; we are really, all greedy gits together GOSH

Many, people/plebs/posh/plebs/middle income muppets/greedy gits; are seemingly unaware of the true cost of bailing out the bankers...
Or! are they too willingly ready to accept a few crumbs from the bankers banquet - we are all in this together- aren't we!
Here's a few pence for charity - I'm not really a greedy git GOSH

And! now, we have 'robo financial adviser' - he's cheaper for everyone! isn't he !
Those in the IT Trade; call automated task programs, 'bots'...
Now; we are going to accept advise from a humans bot instead of a humans mouth...
Nothing changes Eh GOSH


GREECE
Some - not enough - are calling for the bankers to write off the Greek debt...
Would you write off the Greek debt!
After all; you wrote off the bankers debt -
or will the offspring of the offspring of the plebs end up paying........

At a backwater near you..
Get out the galoshes GOSH

Many... many... moons ago; I read that the male fish in the 'natural' water supply feeding London
were evolving into hermaphrodites - due to the non stop recycling system...
It couldn't have been written by some feisty female...
Could it GOSH

The 'owners' of all things wet and watery wil be drawing up the battle plan...
A token amount for flood defence...
a substantial sum on lobbying dodgy dave...
Galleons of it GOSH

Don't... or! don't want to believe me...
You're a richer man than I; bung it in...
Goodness gracious GOSH

Do you know whether it's weather or climate change!
Too busy carving out a crust to bother ...
Just cooking your own goose GOSH

Man is in a constant battle with nature...
Neglect any part of change made by man at your peril.
There's a greedy git on the radio lying about the money spent; as I write...
A gag on that GOSH

Reserve your ranch on mars now.
Offer only applies to greedy, seedy and sod the needy gits GOSH


GREECE
Fancy a plot in Greece...
The bankers will have the plots all drawn out ready...

The rich are keeping land ownership well under the radar now...










THURS 31/12 2015



How's your moral fibre; compared to the establishment!

'Anyone' you can bung I can bung better...
I can bung anyone better than you...
You can't say that - oh yes I can - that's how it works...GOSH

Plastic fibre cables are now used to transmit information.
They have seen off radio and satellite...GOSH

When financial trading went electronic; It became a gold rush
The route to riches was along a fibre optic cable - the shorter and faster, the better...
Every milli/nano-second counted GOSH

These 'people' weren't trading using human skill or gambling...
The big players just bought the fastest system and the 'best' algorithms...
Much of the code used was open source GOSH

They used technology to rig the markets in their favour...
It was the best kept secret before and after; phone hacking.
Gosh to plebs - no GOSH to the establishment...

Now! we know why goldman sachs was desribed by one republican senator; as...
A giant squid on the face of humanity...
A goldfish GOSH

Much of this devilry in the pursuit of profit went on after the crash.
We plebs paid (what! you haven't yet) to get this outfit back on the road...
Can we afford to pay again? GOSH


GREECE
Two of the biggest 'players' in investment banking are:
Deutsche bank and credit suisse...
Did they get the gelt to buy up Greece...
by rigging the market.
