Old Rants

I have decided to import my old political rants from Politicalog into this site. You can find the potted history of the reasons behind my amateur ramblings here.

The main archive can be found here.

My reasons?:

  • Posterity (mainly)
  • I wanted to preserve the full archive (including all the comments)
  • I want to remind everyone exactly why New Labour was such a disaster for this country
  • I have a feeling they might be back soon… If that happens, I’ll start that blog up again as quick as you can blink

State Sponsored Theft

The banking levy in Cyprus is a good measure of how completely screwed up the EU has become.

Russia has strongly criticised the Cyprus bailout deal.

Presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Monday: “Assessing the possible decision of imposing additional tax by Cyprus on deposits, [President] Putin said that this decision, if taken, would be unfair, unprofessional and dangerous.”

Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said: “It looks simply like the confiscation of other people’s money.”

The Russians seem to be the only ones making sense here.
