When Obama Starts Telling People America Is Not A Deadbeat Nation Americans Should Be Worried
We would expect national leaders to be upbeat and optimistic about the state of the nation they lead. So when 'Mr Soaring Rhetoric', Barack Hussein Obama can only summon up enough optimism to say Ametica is not deadbeat things must be in a bad way over the pond.

First He Kissed The King's Ring, Now He Insults Every Hindu and Buddhist, What Next? Publicly Fisting Vladimir Putin?
The Daily Stirrer has always maintained that Barack Hussein Obama is a cupid stunt of the first order. This diplomatic dickhead can't set foot outside The (China) White House it seems without pissing off America's allies Remember when he bent almost double to kiss king Abdullah's ring. Did he not know that all homosexual acts, especially rim jobs, are ...

The final televised debate of the US Presidential election.
Tonight's third and final presidential debate will focus entirely on international politics and foreign policy. Expect Benghazi to be one of the major issues, a subject on which, for the first time in nearly a month, the Obama administration will have the upper hand.

If the conflict in Syria, currently showing signs of spreading to Turkey, Iraq and Kurdistan were to escalate into a regional war, a proxy for east and west to butt heads without sustaining too much domestic damage, is Egypt likely to take advantage of the distraction and
Has Everybody Forgotten Obama's War
The American military machine has just chalked up the grim statistic of its 2,000th fatality since America troops first surged into Afganistan to defeat "insurgents" whose families had lived in that country for many generations. The invasion was justifed in the aftermath of September 11 by the myth that Afghanistan was a ...
Poverty tycoons who make themselves millionaires from taxpayer-funded foreign aid budgetIn responce to questions about Britin's overseas aid budget,David Cameron has said at the United Nations that rather than cutting aid to developing nations in these austere times UK taxpayers should be happy it is being increased.

The Slow Murder Of Democracy By Mainstream Media

The Future Beyond The Thunderdome
In 1981 the movie Mad Max 2, The Road Warrior seemed a far fetched vision of a post apocalypic dystopia. But how far have we travelled towards that vision of social decay and the abandonment of civilised values?
The International Elite's Contempt For National Sovereignty
The UK government's recent threat to storm the Ecuadorian embassy in London and arrest Julian Assange, displays the same degree of contempt for national sovereignty that Western nations have shown repeatedly since the end of the Cold War. But hey, aren't the Russians and Chinese supposed to be the bad guys. What's going on?
Heathrow Expansion Talk Shows Coalition Have Totally Embraced Labour Hypocrisy.
Grant Shapps, Conservative housing minister in the Coalition cabinet has signalled government support for the revival of one of Labour's most useless, fuckwitted and hypocritical ideas, a third runway at Heathrow Airport.

Marxism: The Main Cause Of Poverty And Inequality
The idea that some watered down form of Marxism can relieve poverty while a system based on free enterprise, personal liberty and responsibility and small governmen can only widen the gap between rich and poor is widely held and completely wrong.
Standard Chartered Bank and Obama's Racism
Standard Chartered may not be a household name in Britain, but in plenty of countries this bank is one of our best known national brands. Which makes its alleged behaviour over Iran even more troubling and inexplicable.
The Two Faces Of The Politics Of Failure
Populist Authoritarianism - The New Politics
Many attempts have been made to find a convenient label for the New Politics. My favourite is Populist Authoritarianism because the technique for obtaining a majority is to say something vague and hard to pin down but difficult to disagree with and then demonise those who ask ...
The Extended Europe: A European Union - with Africa and Arabia in itHow far do you think Europe Stretches? From the British Isles to the Bosphorus? From Knivskjelodden (Norway) to Cadiz? Not according to the Globalist Nazis who run the EU. Under the cover of the Euro zone debt crisis they are advancing their plan to extend Europe beyond its geographical and cuiltural boundaries to take in Turkey and the Caucasus, Middle Eastern nations, and the nations of North Africa from Egypt to Morocco as one nation under a single government. Do you still think the E U is a god idea? ...
The Politicisation Of Giving - How The Government Turned Charities Into QUANGOWe report on how the government has politicised the charity sector by making charities reliant on government grants for funding. This effectively makes the charities toothless as campaigning organisations and turns them into mere puppets, a tool government can use to manipulate public opinion.
Overeducated Elitist Snobs Go For World Domination
We have written many times with tongues in our cheeks of The New World Order but what are we talking about. Is it a conspiracy theory like The Illuminti, are there shape shifting lizards involved.

Find out how it operates below ...
The Second Wave Of The Debt Tsunami or The Coming Of The New World OrderAs the debt crisis stumbles on in Europe, the U S A and around the third world all politicians and governments can do is keep kicking the can further down the road. Nobody is prepared to admit that the economic model based on perpetual growth funded by personal debt and public spending has failed. So where do we go from here?
Obama Knifes britain In The Back Again
In his talks with President Barack Hussein Obama in March, David Cameron said he had gained assurances from the White House that Washington would stop pushing for negotiations between London and Buenos Aires about sovereignty over the Falkland Islands. If such an assurance was ever given, it was as worthless as any of Obama's other promises. As Mercosur Press (South Atlantic News Agency) has reported, the US State Department is once again calling for ...
Argentina's Lightweight Government Throws Its Weight About
The government of Argentina, still deluding itself that the Falkland Islands belong to them, has threatened to press criminal and civil charges on British oil companies exploring off the Falkland Islands if they do not "justify their actions" by a May 2 deadline. In its latest display of megalomaniacal lunacy over the disputed islands, The Government of Argentina said it had ...
Cameron Gazes Into The Abyss
At Prime Minister's questioin time today David Cameron was given a threashing the like of which he had not experienced since he was at his very posh school, and he did not enjoy it. After less than 10 minutes of suffering "the slings and arrows of outraged MPs from members of his own and opposition parties, the Prime Minister looked like a pit bull with piles. The Leverson inquiry ...
Obama - When They said it didn't matterThe Daily Stirrer was asked to post this although we are not a U.S. blog. We are happy to oblige because we have always felt there are too many unanswered questions about Barack Hussein Obama, too many answers that have been given but shouted down by those who insist to question him is racist and too many instances in which he has shown where his true sympathies lie (and it is not with America or it's natural allies)
Benefits Cheats Are Living Abroad On The Money They Steal From You
A new blitz on benefit fraudnnounced by aWork and Pensiins Minister Ian Duncan Smith today will aim to stamp out cheats who claim state benefits while living abroad. Scams that cost the taxpayer about £43million last year included claimants failing to report they had moved abroad. Relatives frequently continue to claim benefits for people who have died. Other fraudsters claim cash while ...
UN Panel Says Redesign The World Economy For Sustainability
Was the credit crunch as the media called it really caused by the geed and incometence of the banks and the inabiliy of us ordinary punters to manage our affairs. Or was it all due to the financial madness of politicians who engineered a a system that depended on infinite growh in a world of finite resources.

Shock, Horror! Coalition Spending Cuts Cuts Will Mean 50,000. NHS Job Losses
Predictably the left are screaming about the claimed 50,000 jobs that will have have to be axed by NHS trusts across the nation to meed government budget reduction targets. What NHS managers are doing however is following in the footsteps of Labour controlled councils and rather than losing the candy - floss jobs created by empire building bureaucrats are slashing front line services to punish users of the service for ...
Interest Rates Must Start To Rise Very Soon
The Daily Stirrer has warned you to brace yourselves for rises in interest rates. As it is the Bank of England has kept rates at an insanely low level for far too long in the face of evidence that their policy had completely failed to achieve its stated aim and boost the economy.

Council Fat Cat On £500,000 A Year
The Daily Stirrer had learned that highest-paid public sector employee last year was the outgoing head of one of the country's smallest district councils. 54 year old Phil Dolan trousered £569,000 of taxpayers' money in salary, pension and redundancy payments after accepting a gloden nandshake deal to leave his post as chief executive of South Somerset district council. He is now working as a freelance consultant for other ...
If The EU Has It's Way We Will All Be Prisoners Of Bureaucracy
The British Parliament makes its decision by the votes of its members who are in turn elected by the votes of a majority of their constituents. Without the power to enact laws that shape the lives of British people and the direction of our nation Parliament is nothing. So when Parliament votes on a proposal and that vote make the new measure law or consigns it to oblivion in a dusty filing cabinet somewhere that is the resolution of the matter. That is what we mean by The Sovereignty of Parliament. Its decisions are ...
At Last The Left's Politically Correct Agenda Is Being Questioned - We Can Discuss Poverty, Race and Single Patenthood

Inflation is the cruellest tax, it hits the cautious, prudent and hard working, rewards the feckless, reckless and downright foolish. We have a bout of inflation under way, engineered by governments to reduce their unsdustainable levels of debt incurred in the business of buying otes to stay in power. What will be its effect on ordinary people?
Gambling In The Euro Casino At Vegas on the Med
The Daily Stirer has warned of the collapse of the Eurozone and the death of the single currency before. It was not a hard call to make, tying traditionally weak economies to a strong one like Germany's and thus blocking off the traditional route to eliminating debt in the weak nations, devaluation and inflation, was bound to wreak havoc with the economic basket cases of Southern Europe. The single currency has only survived so long because Germany has been willing to prop it up.
Warmageddon: To Feed The Planet We Need More Carbon Dioxide by Ian R Thorpe.
Warmageddonists are always whining about hoe raised levels of CO2 in air will destroy human society. It is very well known however that most animal life can happily breathe much higher concentrations. Another fear is failure of food supplies. But others argue raising CO2 levels would nullify the case for another science sacred cow GM food crops. So wh is right? ...
For three decades it was alchemy. Banks and corporations pullede off the equivalent of turning lead to gold by turning liabilities to assets and then using those very dodgy assets to secure loans. It could not last of course, sooner or later someone was bound to work out how the illusion of turning debt to wealth was performed. Find out how here...
Head Of Major Food Producing Corp Warns Of Food Crisis
The chief executive of one of the world's largest food producers is to warn that the global crisis in food production is reaching "dangerous territory" with prices soaring and demand outstripping supply.

China's Economic Bubble About To Burst?
For his first-ever speech as Britain’s new Minister of Trade & Industry last week, Lord Green faced a formidable audience of 400 Chinese and British business delegates. The former chairman of HSBC declared that China’s economic growth figures over the past five years represented an “extraordinary historic event”. Green didn’t need to go over Britain’s experience during the same period for most to agree that ...
Obama Deficit Reduction by John De Roe.
We hear that America's AAA credit rating is likely to be downgraded because the Obama administration has embarked on a courseof increasing its public sector deficit and national debt rather than taking steps to reduce its debt burden. Bit at least some member of the Obama administration seem to have got the message that debt reduction is more important than Obie's beloved vanity projects.
The Real Danger To America Is Barack Obama
"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president."
Obama A Bigger Danger To US Security Than Wikileaks Says Robert Gates (The Guardian)
WikiLeaks has yet again flooded the internet with thousands of classified American documents, this time state department cables. More troubling than WikiLeaks' latest revelation of US secrets, however, is the Obama administration's weak, wrong-headed and erratic response. Unfortunately, the adminis>tration has acted consistently with its demonstrated unwillingness to assert and defend ...
U.S. Stock Market Wobbles As Jobs Figure RisesAmerica's unemployment rate unexpectedly rose last month, delivering a blow to recent optimism that a recovery in the world's biggest economy was finding some momentum.

Country Folk Have No Reason To Love The Coalition

Papering Over The G20 Cracks Will Not Avert A Currency War.
The G20 leaders can pass all the resolutions they like and issue joint statements ''til the cows come home, the fact is we have a currency war and until the United States, owner of the world's reserve currency, the US Dollar stops trying to reduce its debt by devaluing the currency the world trades in and starts to work on getting its deficit under ...
Obama Takes A Swipe At China
US president Barack Obama took a swipe at China's currency policy after G20 leaders failed to resolve tensions running high over global trade imbalances.
The summit in South Korea ended as it began, the row over gaps and surpluses which sees China accused of keeping the yuan artificially low to boost its exports at the expense of American and European jobs dominated discussions .

Equalities Bill Discriminates Against Everybody Equally
The Equalities Bill, passed by the previous Labour government before they were ejected from power becomes law today. This farrago is typical of the imbecilic mindset of the self righteous hypocrites who style themselves the progressive left. Presented as a law in support of equality in the workplace , in this era of pandemic joblessness and perpetual financial crisis it is nothing but an attack on the businesses that provide the real, wealth producing, revenue generating jobs in the private sector.
Obama Wants War On Poverty
Barack Obama unveiled a new "big hearted" but "hard headed" US aid policy to push the poorest countries toward prosperity. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon launched a 40 billion dollar drive to save the lives of millions of women and children. Britain, China and Japan also promised more help. But many leaders still accused wealthy nations of failing to keep their promises to ...
Blair's Journey by Ian R Thorpe.
Tony Blair's memoir of his political career, The Journey, is a must read for fans of another politician whose ambition and lust for power far outstrips his ability and experience. Solipsistic and self regarding, Tony Blair takes us through how he saved the Labour party and led it to power, how he charmed the traditionally conservative middle classes, how he spoke to the traditional Labour voters and earned their loyalty and support for his Thatcherite policies and how he saved British businness from economic catastrophe. Strangely he does not mention how he untimately betrayed all those groups.
The Real Danger To America?">The Real Danger To AmericaI love this quote from a Czech Repuplic newspaper:
"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president."
Property Prices To Fall Again?Despite government eforts to talk up a recovery the economy remains stubbornly stagnant. It is unsurprising really, the UK economy still relies far too much on the housing and property market and with incomes being squeezed and house prices remaining so high they are beyond the reach of first time buyers there is little change of increased activity while unemployment continues to rise.
Labour's Loony Spending Scheme Cripples NHS
The nation was given a laugh when David Laws, treaury minister for the incoming conservative / lib dem coalition government revealed his Labour predecessor had left a note saying There is no money. it does not seem so funny now as the true extent of Labours financial profligacy is being discovered. The private finance contracts some NHS Health Trusts were tied into are crippling local hospital trusts financially.
Obama Diplomatic Goof Over LockerbieThe Obama Adminisdtration showed gobsmacking arrogance in summoning Scottish and British justice miniters to give evidence before a Senate committee into the release on humanitarian grounds of Abdelbaset al - Megrahi, the Lockerbie bomber. It demonstrates nothing has changed since the Bush administration were in power.

Obama And The Lockerbie Bomber
The Daily Stirrer has commented many times on the racist nature of the Obama administration and the detestation of "white" people in general and the British in particular that President Barack Hussein Obama can barely be bothered to conceal. No matter we say, Britain benefits little from the so called "special relationship", the myth of which has been perpetuated by...
Did BP Lobby For Lockerbie Bomber's Release
The latest measure of politically correct socialist insanity from the "progressive left" othertwise known as the populist authoritarian Labour party has come via the accusation that oil giant BP lobbied Gordon Brown's government for the release of the Lockerbie Bomber Abdelbaset al-Megrahi. We hope this is a total fabrication because BP, already in trouble for the Deepwater Horizon oil rig's exploding and millions of gallons of crude oil leaking into the Gulf of Mexico from the uncapped well, may not be able to withstand a new crisis while Barack Obama is clutching at straws in his efforts to save his failed Presenency.

Sleeping With Conservatives
Could You Hug A Tory asks a feature in The Guardian some time ago. Several typical Guardian writers describe their feelings of fear and loathing when, purely in the interests of science of course, they hugged prominent members of the Conservative Party. Me? Sex is non political. The last thing I worry about when a woman I fancy smiles at me is her politics
The Arrogance Of Ecomonists And The Stupidity Of Politicians
by Ian R Thorpe
Don't you just love the arrogance of economists and their detatchment from anything remotely resembling reality. They're all scum sucking crackfarts, they really are. Little Nicky Machiavelli has said this many times and here's a mainstream journalist taking up the theme in response to an economics academic who says that anyone who does not have a PhD in economics should not be allowed to express an opinion on the subject as only...
The name of a great Englishman, John Maynard Keyes, is being trashed by that jug eared steak of piss and racist hater of all things British Barack Obama in attempts to give the failing Obama administration's loonytoons economics a veneer of sanity. Keynes recommended governments should use publc spending to sustain their economy during periods of recession. He did not say, as Obama's supporters claim he did, that nations already way past the point of bankruptcy should continue with reckless poublic spending projects.
Should The Cuts Hit The NHS?

The Politics Of Fear And Panic
Fear and panic certainly seem to be gaining ground as the weapon with which the political and business elite intend to control us and force us to comply with their fiendish schemes.
The Necessity Of Curbing State Spending
The left, already laughable styling themselves "the opposition" even as Labour splits into tiny factions including the "old left" the traditional party of the working class, the people with traditional Labour values who recognise there are no magical solution, the "progressive left", the kind of people my colleague Ian Thorpe refers to as The Politically Correct Thought Police, who are currently working themselves into a frenzy about
Oh Brave New World
In common with Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty Four, forever imprinted on the minds of my generation because of the cover image of a military boot grinding on a human face, Brave New World was a book that changed the way we viewed the world we lived in. In many ways it inspired aspects of the social revolution of the 1960s as people shrugged off the social controls that had imposed such restrictive conventions on western society.

Obama Deepwater Horizon
President Obama described the oil spill from the Deepwater Horizon spill in the Gulf of Mexico as America's worst environmental disaster ever. That is not true, the oil spillng from the fractured well has a long way to go before overtaking a similar blowout in the Gulf in 1979. What do we expect from the rock star President other than posing, posturing and crude attempt to make political capital out of catastrophe...

Legacy Of Rogernomics

Ten - The First Night David and Sam Spend In Their New Home Turns Into A Nightmare
It is said ghosts are just echoes of the past, electro - magnetic shadows of long ago dramas imprinted on the fabric of buildings.

Labour Contenders Line Up With David Milliband To The Fore
Before Gordon Brown had even finished is maybe but not just yet, maybe never resignation speech David Milliband was pushing himself to the fore as a potential successor to Brown.

Cameron To Seduce Clegg With Proportional Representation.
Electoral Reform and the introduction of a voting system in which every vote counts has long been the goal of the Liberal and later the Liberal Democrat parties. Although most people have believed a Lib Dem alliance that could deliver electoral reform could only be made with Labour.
The Labour Party may talk of socialism but their Nanny State tyle of ovErbearing governmental control freakery rather than protecting the weak according to the political philosophy of John Locke seeks to suppress individualism and impose uniformity by spreading fear and panic. This approach achieves equality by making all weak and dependent. Unfortunately it debilitates the nation.
The Gordon Truman Show Humour, satire
Power may well corrupt but it certainly removes those who hold it from reality. So as Gordon Brown squats in Downing Street hoping that a bizarre sequence of events following the indecisive election will lead to him staying on as Prime Minister in a hung parliament one cannot help but think The Gordon Show is turning into a Truman Show type movie fantasy.
Lord Of The Blair Rings, (Emily, Tony and Precious) Humour, satire
Power corrupts maybe but it certainly removes those who hold it from reality. Tony Blair sits and schemes through his last days in office, hoping to find a way to hold on to his precious, the ring of office held by every Prime Minister or First Lord Of The Treasury to give the office its proper title. One cannot help but think power has warped Blair's mind so much he thinks he is the living embodiment of a character in a fantasy fiction.

Epitaph For New Labour.
Several hours before polls close on general election day Ian R Thorpe pre-empts the result by publishing an epitaph for the wretched "New Labour" project which led the once great Labour Party to aandon any pretence of standing for anything except the interests of its leaders and paymaster and the gaining and keeping of power at any price. So arrogant has Labour become, so contemptuous of their working class core vote, the people who put the labour into Labour Party, that they are now he party of wealth and privilege, to the autoritarian right of the Conservatives while the Liberal Democrats are the truly progressive force on the left.
How To Be A Bigot

Clegg To Make Cancer A Crime

Immigration - The Elephant In The Election Room.
Throughout the election campaign the three main parties, Labour, Conservative and Liberal Democrat have shied away from the immigration issue. How can these charlatans put themselves forward as serious politicians prepared to implement the political solutions needed to deal with Britains problems when they dare not comment on the issue of greatest concern to most voters for fear of upsetting the numerically small but unrepresentatively vocal politically correct "progressive left."

Change Can Be Unfair To Everybody
It cannot only be me and my colleagues here at The Daily Stirrer who are fed up of hearing about change and fairness in this election. Campaigning has been more Presidential in style than ever before with attention focused on the party leaders and in particular on the televised debates. This is bad for democracy of course because The British Constitution (and we do have on American visitors though it is not contained in single document) requires that we elect Members of Parliament per Constituency to represent all the people of the constituency and not that we vote according to which of the party leaders is the prettiest, has the most vacuous catchphrases or parades the prettiest wife on his...
Fit To Gossip
Ironic isn't it that not so long ago when unemployment was much lower than it is now but was a cause for alarm nonetheless, the government was pushing to get people declared disabled so they could go on incapacity benefit and off the jobless figures. Now they want to get people off incapacity and registered as unemployed because jobseekers allowance costs less than incapacity benefit...
The Fiscal Nightmare
Political conservatives and libertarians in the USA are aware of the problem but here in the UK with less than three weeks to go until the General Election that will decide who governs the country for the next four or five years only the Liberal Democrats and representatives of...
No Real Jobs In The New Economy
Gordon Brown's Labour government and the failing Obama administration in the USA, feeling power slipping through their fingers, are trying to lull people into a false sense of security with claims the 'green' and the 'digital' economies will restore prosperity. This as a blatant lie, nobody needs a PhD in economics or Social Science to understand that the "new economy" of green businesses and digital commerce will destroy not create real jobs...
No Child Left Behind - Just £800 million
Everybody has been feeling the pinch this past couple of years so just think how well off we would all be if this government stopped wasting our money! Each party is suggesting the other will bring in the more savage cuts to public spending. But they don't have to cut any necessary spending at all, just stop wasting the money we bung into the kitty via our tax on stupid schemes thought up by The Politically Correct Thought Police...

The Real Unemployment Figure
New unemployment figures released yesterday show unemployment fell by 0.1% in the three months December to FebruarY. Contained in the figures was a statistic that undermines government talk of an economic upturn. This is the number of people in work. Headline unemployment has fallen the number of people in work has also fallen. What's going on?
Hate Crime Law - Another Step Towards Fascism?
Those in politics who like to call themselves the progrssive left or progressive liberals love to talk about fairness and equality. Why themn are they so keen to introduce 'hate crime' laws that will grant privilege to certain groups in a system that depens on all being equal? Call us old fashioned but in our view there does not seem to be much justice in replacing one privileged elite with another.
Bond Villain Targets Britain's Future by John De Roe.
Bill Gross, the world's biggest bond investor might have voted for Obama hnd has some sympathy for Labour because they talk of creating jobs, but he thinks the British economy is in worse shape than anyone is going to admit and is quite willing to take advantage of our vulnerability."

Gordfellas - Is The Labour Government Really Like Goodfellas? (satire)
Stories coming from Downing Street accusing Labour Prime Miniter Gordon Brown of bullying and being tempramentally unstable should worry us all. We know little of what goes on inside the seat of government and what we hear makes it sound like the movie Goodfellas. Read this hilarious pastiche then decide.
Is Iran Becoming A Military Dictatorship?
If there is one thing we love doing at the Daily Srirrer it is to predict the news months ahead of when it happens. As U.S. Secretary of Stare Hillary Clinton warns that Iran is on the way to becoming an Islamic Military Dictatorhip we can again say 'told you so,' because we predicted last summer this would be the outcome of Barack Obama's meddling in Iran's domestic affairs.
Never Mix Science And Politics.
The government constantly whines that not enough pulips in their later school years take up sciences. The government itself however is pushing history off the curriculum. So as they strip the nation's young people of a sense who they are and destroy the national culture inthe name of diversity and multiculturalism can they complain if those young people feel alienated and do not wish to contribute positively to the national community.

When Prof. David Nutt the Labour government's chief scientific adiser on drug misuse and related health problems openly criticized government policy on drugs his resignation was inevitable. Prof Nutt was not wrong in what he said and we're no fans of politicians but there is more than pure science to considr when making political policy.
Robin Hood Tax
As the sycophantic Gordon Brown busies himself telling the world "universal support is growing" for Barack Obama's idiotic notion of a "Robin Hood Tax", a levy on financial transactions "to help the poor."

Former Government Adviser Condemns Green Scaremongering.
Some people accuse The Daily Stirrer of being anti - science. This is not so, we are simply endowed with a healthy scepticism about all things. Thus the trend among people who like to label themseves "scientists" to brush aside criticism from highly educated and well informed individuals outside their specialist field by saying "You're not a scientists, you don't understand science," arouses deep suspicion. We are rght to be sceptical and suspicious ...
Labour's Minimum Wage Scam
When you hear of a Conservative politician praising Labour for creating a 'flexible job market' that benefits British employers it does not ring true. What Lord Freud was really praising the government for was letting bosses screw their workers by turning a full time job into a part time job. Not the sort of jobs policy you expect from Labour but we're always said they are more Tory than the Tories.
Authoritarian Box Ticking Culture.
by Ian R. Thorpe
Among the things that have alienated people from the Labour party apart from generakl incompetence, is their arrogant and patronising conviction the public are resady to believe anything the government tells them so long as it is dressed up in statistics and delivered by some fresh faced, smooth talking Labour spinmeister. It is very like the authoritarian regime of Orwell's 1984
Change You Can't Believe In
by James Dahlberg
For his first contribution to The Daily Stirrer James looks at how the popularity of Barack Obama, the Yes We Can" man has collapsed from the record levels seen right after his inauguration as President to the latest polls that make him the most unpopular president ever after a year in office. The economy, unemployment, the disatrous health reform bill and weakness on foreign polcy have played a big part but how much is due to the failings of man himself.
Poverty: Labour Succeeds Where Thatcher Failed.
At last, a success New Labour can claim as their own. Under the party's rule over the past twelve years the gap between rich and poor in Britain has gone bak to the level of 50 years ago.

The Truth About The Economy, Crime And Everything Else.

Millions of Americans Are Giving Up Looking For Work (and things are just as bad in Britain)
News that many unemployed Americans are simply giving up looking for job openings and resigning themselves to long term unemployment should come as no surprise in Britain where the number of real jobs in the economy has been blatantly massaged by creation of public sector vacancies, closure of many careers to people without Uiversity degrees and the policy of pushing people into higher education.
Privatise The Profit - Nationalise The Losses.
Governments and politicians of all shades like to talk of gbeing fair, equal opportunities for all, an aspirational society with upward social mobility. How does that equate though to the fact that for many years taxpayers will be paying interest on money borrowed from China and India in order to bail out our failed banks and financial insitutions. Being unfair to the rest of us so they can be fair to the bankers who got right by stealing from ordinary people does not equate to equal opportunity in our view
The Jobless Economy
Politicians, economists and others with an interest in talking up the economy to get us all spending and taking on debt and mortgage loans again may rave about recovery. With our industrial base so depleted where will the jobs come from that we need to lead a recovery?" They may call it fiscal prudence, we call it loonytoons economics...

Politicians Just Don't Get It About Change

Climate Change: Little White Lies and Big Brown Lies
The Copenhagen summit conference on climate change was never about climate change. It was about money, power, control and the need to divert attention from the failure of globalization by the spreading of fear and panic. The idea was to make us feel dependent on our leaders. Pity the science used to back up the case for action was so easily exposed as fraudulent. Read more...

Just Who Is Undermining Obama's Credibility?
"The 'Birther' movement in the USA questions the elegibility of Barack Obama to serve as President because his father being non - American means he is excluded from the Presidency under the US Contitution. The official response to the 'birthers' is to ridicule them as conspiracy theorists but if that was the case the expensive legal actions to prevent lawsuits challenging Obama from comng to court are, are they not, an over - reaction.

Why is it OK for 'scientists' to spend billions of $ looking for aliens but when ordinary folks do it much more cheaply and with greater success they are dismissed as nutters. This story throws some light on the situation.
Swine Flu - If You Need A Crisis Just Invent One
The Daily Stirrer has always been sceptical about the Swine Flu epidemic. It first hit the news just before the G20 economic summit meeting of world leaders earlier in the year. The summit was ostensibly convened to hack out a solution to the global financial crisis but was in reality a front for the first step towards creating a world government. One of the delegates even went so far as to hint at this in a television interview. Asked if the task the summit had set delegates for the future was to create a global economy this man said, "Our task is to create a global culture."
