Government Responds To The Riots Without One Word Of Spin (well almost)


Have the riots done what was needed to give us a Conservative government?
This is a situation where gimmicks won’t wash.  If the gang problem isn’t dealt with, Cameron will pay the political price.  At last he turns to people capable of solving real problems,  not merely  to look right for the media.  It’s taken too long for the media bravado to stop.  Theresa May and Iain Duncan Smith will sort the situation if anybody can.



One sentence in The Spectator gives the story  –


The government’s main response to the riots has been to set up a committee on gangs, which Duncan Smith will lead jointly with Theresa May, the Home Secretary.

About bloody time we saw a 100% Conservative lead.
Liberal Democrats would just cause more trouble.
The pretence is over.

    So the false flag riot is good because it lets us deal with the gangs, effectively… (if the proposals are indeed effective and go through)?

    Or maybe this is how it was sold. You get to deal with the gang problem. We get to ratchet up the tyranny. It wasn’t possible to deal with the gangs without more oppression… maybe the environment where gangs would flourish was deliberately engineered to make their solution require the turnover of more power to an elite.

  2. Tapestry says:

    Cameron with the riots was aiming at launching the new 16+ Hitler Youth, the appointment of an NY Supercop and draconian new freedom-crushing laws.

    But he’s finding his path blocked on some of these things by Theresa May, who doesn’t want an American supercop, a new HItler Youth or draconian powers.

    Her recipe is far simpler, and cheaper. For once the money-spending, baton-wielding totalitarians are being blocked.

    With France and Germany announcing the next phase of EU integration don’t you find it interesting how these helpful riots came along at just the right time to justify additional police powers

  4. Tapestry says:

    The plans to reduce Britain into a Police State are well advanced, but so too is public awareness growing that things are not right. The secretive programme of national enslavement will not easily work if the public start waking up and talking.

    The riots have made it harder for the powers that be to bury popular opposition, to the point that Cameron and Clegg are not calling the tune here.

    I don’t see any radical change in what is happening, but IDS and Theresa May would be a formidable team, both with an interest in getting things right, and not adding to the power of behind-the-scenes manipulators.

    They might be patsies, but let’s see.

  5. Me says:

    Good on Theresa May then. She, and others like her, needs our support.

    On another subject – this is intriguing

    “Here’s how it works. JP Morgan sells Comex gold to hedge funds, who then opt to safekeep it at JP Morgan’s Comex depository for a 15 basis point fee. It makes the purchase very simple, the “storage” inexpensive and enables the hedge fund to seemingly have possession of physical gold. But in reality all the hedge fund gains is a “security interest” – or paper documentation – in the gold rather than the actual gold. Here’s why: how many of those hedge funds will actually ever ask for delivery of the gold into a private depository or go visit the vault to make sure that the gold it purchased is physically sitting in a separate, allocated bin? JP Morgan is “banking” on the fact that none of them will. This enables JP Morgan to make an electronic ledger entry and create an account statement showing the market value of the gold purchased, but it never has to actually produce the physical bars and deliver them. This dynamic permits JP Morgan to sell gold that the bank is never held accountable for. This is exactly the scheme Morgan Stanley used with their silver fraud on a much smaller scale, that GLD and SLV use and that the Comex and the LBMA bullion banks use for their futures/forwards business.”

    someone else says

    “You can now imagine what is going on behind the scenes. The Bank of England will recall its gold from the GLD. If that gold from GLD is now gone to sovereign China, India, Russia, South Korea, Mexico, and to wealthy Europeans fleeing the Euro, then the Bank cannot retrieve its swapped gold to repay Chavez. Not only that but the Bank of England is not the ultimate owner of the gold..it is probably wealthy Arabs or oil barons like Chavez. You can now imagine the wild scenarios possible. Gold was at its nadir of the day and shot up big time on the news of the repatriation of gold. Many understand the significance of today’s announcement.”

    Don’t have time to provide a summary.

  6. Tapestry says:

    I am probably being naive in holding out hope that Theresa May is above selling out to the banking and military cartels. IDS is no doubt in favour of the military industrial complex. Or at least he can only fight one battle at a time.

    Prechter said last week, ‘when gold was $250 an ounce, no one wanted it. Now it’s $1800 the whole world wants some of the action’.

    Venezuela sees the USA embroiled in wars across the Middle East and Central Asia. The US elections are warming up. The wars are unpopular. Chavez sees this as the moment to go for it, and seize independence from the cartels, imagining he has time to consolidate his gains before the war machine can deploy and take him out. Owning his own gold is no different to owning his own oil and other natural resources.

    As for the US$, maybe not dead yet. The US government has just passed the first cut in borrowing for twenty years by $2 trillion over three years. For the time being QE3 is nowhere in sight. Stocks (securities) are tanking. This is massively deflationary. Gold will be kicked over by the rush to the exits.

    “Gold will be kicked over by the rush to the exit”

    I don’t understand how you come to this conclusion when there is an argument we will get deflation and rising gold, which is perfectly logical, before the hyperinflation.

    This was predicted. It’s going to plan.

    Debt Collapse – The Case For $20,000 Gold – Mike Maloney (FULL PRESENTATION)

    “First the threat of deflation, followed by a helicopter drop, followed by big inflation, followed by real deflation, and then followed by hyperinflation.

    … I actually hope you are right and the metals at least stay where they are or even drop a bit, it would give me more time to get some, but I’m 99% sure you are wrong. Telling people to be 100% in cash at this time is extraordinarily bad advice.

  8. Tapestry says:

    Deflation will not be a five second affair. In 1981 US 30 Year Treasuries had an interest rate of 15%. They have reduced through a trend channel to 3.5% today and could hit 2% at the floor before they turn up….or even 0%.

    The coming deflation could last years and be so severe that you will never forget it. Gold will be knocked down. It would reach say $800 an ounce. Silver $15.00.

    If the next phase is to be hyperinflation, that could be about ten to fifteen years away.

    People can’t see that deflation and inflation are totally different events, and they cannot occur at the same time.

  9. Anonymous says:

    Just look at the picture of IDS to see how ‘conservative’ he really is. He is owned – like the rest of them – by the corporations and the all pervading common purpose, nation wrecking cultural
    Marxists.

  10. Me says:

    People I am reading are saying
    Silver $70
    Gold $2000

    by new year.

    You would disagree. We’ve not long to find out who is right.

    Currently Gold and silver are going up while the stock market is falling.

    If you look at the video Maloney explains how the deflationary collapse feeds into higher gold prices. Hyperinflation is the ultimate form of deflation. Gold and silver are expected to hold their value while stocks fall.

  11. Tapestry says:

    Anon, IDS led the Maastricht rebels. When leader of the party, he changed Conservative policy to permanently keep out of the Euro. He was trying to form a Europe of independent sovereign nations, buit was slung out by Rupert Murdoch and the media. He has a good track record.

    His only failing was to support the Iraq war. He says he believed the threats as presented by Blair, and didn’t a British Prime Minister would ‘sex up’ intelligence – i.e. lie.

    I’d give him 8 out of 10.

    The point about gold and silver heading up to a peak is not in dispute. The difference is that the peak will be followed by a substantial fall…maybe half current levels.

  12. Me says:

    I’ve heard people say there will be a pull-back. It’s to be expected. But from where? From $2000 to $800? That’s dreamland, which is why it can’t happen.

    More likely, there will be a pullback from $2500 to $2000, or just below, which would be very significant at the time.

    I simply can’t imagine what would have to happen for $800 gold, because as far as I know, it would mean the dollar is strong and the world economy growing… and growth would require QE3.

  13. Tapestry says:

    Prechter said, when gold was at $250, no one wanted it. Now it’s $1800 everyone wants it. That’s typical of sentiment, at tops and bottoms of markets, as with housing, for example.

    If QE hadn’t been issued by the Fed since 2008, gold would have peaked at $1200 or even under $1000. QE2 drove gold from there to $1500, and it was only the promise of QE3 (false as it’s turned out) that drove gold on further to $1800.

    As the US govt is cutting its deficit by $2 trillion, and QE is ending (or so it seems for now), gold will not be able to maintain its recent energy.

    Markets need cash to drive them, and cash is being withdrawn. People holding gold will want to sell and take a profit, just like any other commodity once it is seen to be peaking.

    No one knows where that peak will be. It might be right here or another few hundreds up, but the fall will be brutal. After most bubbles, markets usually first go all the way back down to where they started before rebuilding the price. The up is giddy with hope and expectation. The down is long drawn out and depressing.

    No market goes up forever. And the faster the climb the sharper the fall.

  14. Tapestry says:

    Remember, no one lost money by taking a profit.

    //Prechter said, when gold was at $250, no one wanted it. Now it’s $1800 everyone wants it. That’s typical of sentiment, at tops and bottoms of markets, as with housing, for example.//

    Everyone wants gold? You serious? I’m having trouble persuading anyone. Including you.

    How can you be sure you are measuring sentiment objectively?

    Do you know of the Stock-Gold ratio? That appears to go in a cycle – it’s in the Maloney vid.

    //If QE hadn’t been issued by the Fed since 2008, gold would have peaked at $1200 or even under $1000. QE2 drove gold from there to $1500, and it was only the promise of QE3 (false as it’s turned out) that drove gold on further to $1800.//

    Thing is everyone would love you to be right, which is why I’m pretty sure you’re wrong.

    Everyone I try to persuade to buy gold to protect themselves says it’s in a bubble. It’s only those who’ve educated themselves via the internet who know what is happening.

    I don’t believe the gold price is driven by QE alone. For one thing, there is extra investment demand from the rest of the world that didn’t exist 20 years ago. Russia, China, India, Brazil. Plus China is dumping dollars into metal.

    How is it going to fall? I want it to fall.

    //As the US govt is cutting its deficit by $2 trillion, and QE is ending (or so it seems for now), gold will not be able to maintain its recent energy.//

    That’s a paltry sum compared to the 4 quadrillion debt!

    //Markets need cash to drive them, and cash is being withdrawn.//

    Not quite… there is something called velocity. You can remove cash and still get hyperinflation. This has happened historically. What happens is people spend what they do have as quick as they get it. Mass psychology changes to a hoarding mentality.

    // People holding gold will want to sell and take a profit, just like any other commodity once it is seen to be peaking.//

    Of course! But what do you sell gold to get? Silver? Eric Sprott has just sold a shitton of gold to invest the proceeds in silver.

    Why would anyone want the dollar, until it is backed by gold (to some degree)?

    //No one knows where that peak will be. It might be right here or another few hundreds up, but the fall will be brutal.//

    Pull-backs in up-trends are often sharp and deep. A pull-back will not prove a reverse. After a pull-back it can go back up just as quick, and higher.

    //After most bubbles, markets usually first go all the way back down to where they started before rebuilding the price. The up is giddy with hope and expectation. The down is long drawn out and depressing.//

    The fundamentals of owning gold haven’t changed.

    The stock price – gold ratio is still high on the stock price side. Stocks have been massively over-valued compared to gold. Gold will probably over-shoot to a silly number compared to stocks before the equilibrium is found. This occurred in the 30s and in the 70s.

    //No market goes up forever. And the faster the climb the sharper the fall.//

    You’re stating the obvious. The negative of not owning gold is… if gold is money, and paper is burning up, then if gold doubles in a week and you don’t own any gold, your networth has halved in the same period.
