The start of the end for the Euro?

The Euro Scream – a new take on the Edvard Munch original.

Spanish Riot Police demonstrating state sponsored thuggery.

Whilst the UK media seem determined to completely ignore the ongoing protests in Spain and elsewhere for that matter, the following two videos show exactly what happens when The State decides to send their paid thugs in to deal with the inconvenience of protesting citizens.

No way out? Why the British economy is in very deep trouble.

Osborne’s last act as Chancellor?

The post title comes from a strategy note (links to pdf version) written by Dr Tim Morgan at Tullett Prebon which paints a rather different picture of our recent past and future prospects than you will hear from either politicians (of whatever colour) or the MSM.

A broken, half million pound firetruck.

The shenanigans that go on in public service beggar belief sometimes.
