In 1999; after 22 years of restoration - must have been a zero hours contract - 'The Last Supper' was rehung in Milan.

In 1945 the body of Benny Mussolini (and other fascists) was hung upside down in Milan - not from a lamp post; from an esso gas station girder.GOSH

59% of the crew and only 20% of the passengers survived.
41% of the first class pasengers were rescued.

No figures for steerage class - Canada back to Liverpool - whats a few plebs; if any ! EH...
Only 4 children were saved - about 5%
13% of women and 28% of men survived...
If! the Storstad hadn't remained afloat and launched her life rafts...
Many more would have had a freezing watery grave. GOSH

Initially! both captains said they were stationary with the engines stopped.
When dna evidence conclusively proved the total innocence of many convicted Americans.
The prosecutors and police refused to believe they were innocent...
The psychologists sum it up as ' self justification'.
Me wrong! I've been trained to find people guilty - I'm a good guy GOSH

It's over 30 year since the Hillsborough disaster left 96 dead and over 700 injured.
If! you had lost a relative or friend - how would you feel?
The truth will officialy emerge from the dodgy depths of desperational denial...
Not as 'self justification'; but an establishment cover up...
Not the good guys again GOSH

50 tory MP's want a vote of 'no confidence' in dodgy dave cameron...
Even a proposed vote of 'no confidence' can bring about a resignation and a general election.
The unacceptable face of political fascism!/?...
One can only assume this is merely an election expenses disaster diversion; and/or a tactic in the Europe stay or go game GOSH

Politicians... the've got to pitch a porky or two...
Joined up thinking...
No matter which side of the political divide - this is what one gets from self serving, coated in creepy careerism politicians.

Wonder if they will pay full wack over here or blend into the black/grey economy!
Does the footie game reflect the national economic game...GOSH


GREECE
The economy of Greece is now a game of have and have nots...
Will it be the UK or Greece that is the 'bankers last stand'?

MON 30th of May 2016



Today in 1868; the Americans started observing Memorial Day - it used to be called Decoration Day.
Deco day was to remember the dead of the union side in the civil war.
Memo day is to remember all those who have died in uniform while serving their country.
More people are killed by fellow citizens on american soil than killed in theatres of war in modern times...
There they were...gone GOSH

Most countries on the planet have at least one day to remember the war dead...
In the first world war; on the goodies side: The Russians had the most deaths... in uniform... 1.7m of 12m
France...1.35m of 8.4m
Romania...335,000
of 750 thousand
British Empire... 908 thousand out of 8.9 m
USA... 116,500 out of 4.35m

Total...5.1m out of 42.1m
These figures are just marginally less rough than the uniforms they died in;
And, not guestimates... GOSH

The cost including wounded, prisoners and missing:
Goodies...52.3%
Baddies...67.4%
One surprising fact/stat; on the baddie side...
The Austrian/ Hungarians suffered far higher losses than the Germans
A turbulent end...Gotterdammerung GOSH

The next world war was the sureal sublime to the really ridiculous...
An estimate of 70-80m deaths...
In Europe it was the Poles and, Russians again; that suffered the most losses by far
These stats don't include the deaths caused by disease and destruction...
A time of mass migration or greater grief GOSH

The blairites - or right wing of the labour party - must be really desperate to bring back bliar.
No matter how much spin - tony is still phony.
One of the duo responsible for the latest mass migration
Just like the bankers - they have done nothing wrong...
For you don't count the dead; when he's on your side...
Black gold and god GOSH

The death count in Iraq alone is officially nearing half a million - so it is much more in reality.
In war; truth is the first casuality.
The following statement sums up the conflict in the middle east...
'We aren't coming for your benefits; we are coming to avoid your bombs'
Life's a game GOSH


GREECE

TUES 31st of May 2016



Today in 1669; Sammy Pepys recorded in his diary for the last time; at the age of 36 - his lamps had started to go...
Sammy was a tory MP for a short while - many tory MP's today; have bad eyesight...
They can't see past their bank balance and have to pay someone to see as far as a tax haven.
It must be a myth; that many of the electorate think they are not greedy gits...GOSH

QE! Quantative Easing - the modern way to print money - Keyboard cash; is back on the books! again.
At first it was in the form of Government Bonds - how many times and how much?
This time it is corporate bonds - less safe and less gravitas GOSH

All bonds are a form of debt (more than 1 year) and can be controlled by goverments...
Putting money into an economy is supposed to stimulate it - in the nicest! possible way...
QE is the financial equivalent of steroids... last chance... take it easy...
Too much QE and too much inflation...Life's a gas.GOSH

QE is like aid - how much actually gets to where it is really needed!
Most of the money - for what ever reason - stays in the financial system...
Resist calling them bankers... At least two of them are not gonads GOSH

Corporate bonds are known as counter products - they can be traded on the open market and end up as anything...
If! I was a less trusting soul...
I would see this as a less than subtle attempt to get more dodgy funny money back into the open markets.
By dodgy funny money; I mean...:
Tax havens.
Secret accounts...
And; any other form of secretive financial skullduggery - a certain percentage of which; contains laundered money.
Let's hear it for the guys and gals GOSH

Governments (humans without algorithms) caused/couldn't stop inflation before deregulation...
By the end of the next generation; people forget...
After deregulation - what chance have the chancers got! GOSH

In the age of private banking controlled economies; do they know what they are doing at all!
Hedge funds and relaxation of company accounts are just two of the tip of the cold as ice greedberg.
The same people who didn't see the last crash; are trying desperately - Oh so deperately - to prevent the next crash.
If! there was a god up there; he would let the bankers and chums go...


GREECE The Greeks have had a few gods over the ages.
People now know that the gods don't rule...
The greedy gits do.
Well! for now they do...
