British embassies in the eurozone have been told to draw up plans to help British expats through the collapse of the single currency, amid new fears for Italy and Spain.


As the Italian government struggled to borrow and Spain considered seeking an international bail-out, British ministers privately warned that the break-up of the euro, once almost unthinkable, is now increasingly plausible. Diplomats are preparing to help Britons abroad through a banking collapse and even riots arising from the debt crisis. The Treasury confirmed earlier this month that contingency planning for a collapse is now under way. A senior minister has now revealed the extent of the Government’s concern, saying that Britain is now planning on the basis that a euro collapse is now just a matter of time. “It’s in our interests that they keep playing for time because that gives us more time to prepare,” the minister told the Daily Telegraph. Recent Foreign and Commonwealth Office instructions to embassies and consulates request contingency planning for extreme scenarios including rioting and social unrest. Greece has seen several outbreaks of civil disorder as its government struggles with its huge debts. British officials think similar scenes cannot be ruled out in other nations if the euro collapses. Diplomats have also been told to prepare to help tens of thousands of British citizens in eurozone countries with the consequences of a financial collapse that would leave them unable to access bank accounts or even withdraw cash. Fuelling the fears of financial markets for the euro, reports in Madrid yesterday suggested that the new Popular Party government could seek a bail-out from either the European Union rescue fund or the International Monetary Fund. There are also growing fears for Italy, whose new government was forced to pay record interest rates on new bonds issued yesterday. The yield on new six-month loans was 6.5 per cent, nearly double last month’s rate. And the yield on outstanding two-year loans was 7.8 per cent, well above the level considered unsustainable. Italy’s new government will have to sell more than EURO 30 billion of new bonds by the end of January to refinance its debts. Analysts say there is no guarantee that investors will buy all of those bonds, which could force Italy to default.


If Euro Collapse

In an interview, former Dutch politician Frits Bolkestein predicted the “inevitable” breakdown of the Euro. He says Eurobonds would be a “disastrous” idea, saying…”That means that the Netherlands must pay more interest. I have calculated that thing up to seven billion euros per year. Each year, we already have problems to eighteen billion cut in four years.” And he says he would not “shed a tear” if Italy left. Ultimately he sees the emergency of a “Neuro” comprise of Germany and other Northern European economies.

The IMF is preparing a 600 billion euro bailout for Italy in case the debt crisis worsens, Italian daily La Stampa reported citing IMF officials (via AFP).
The IMF would guarantee rates of 4 or 5 percent on the loan, far better than borrowing costs far better than the commercial debt market where yields have reached as high as 8 percent.
The loan is intended to give the new Mario Monti government 12 to 18 months to launch necessary reforms.

Berlin allies set to steamroller EU members into United States of Europe



REVEALED: MERKEL & SCHAUBLE EYEING SWEEPING CHANGES TO GERMAN CONSTITUTION

Berlin allies set to steamroller EU members into United States of Europe.New article in Der Spiegel vindicates Slog sources, highlights Berlin game-plan.


In a major Spiegel scoop yesterday, the influential German magazine/paper/site revealed that German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schauble is a driving force behind the acceleration in German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s plans to run towards EU fiscal and political union. As The Slog has maintained for some time, the two political allies see this as the best way to ensure the EU’s survival. But the evidence suggests that the plan is fraught with danger for everyone.


Captions for that photo of Merkel and Schauble:



“We’re up to something”. “Don’t let them know”. “String them out a bit longer so we can prepare”


They say a picture says a thousand words

This is a complete lie IMO by the ruling criminal class, the protection wont run to the general person on the street it will only be enforced when the people rise up against those in control of the UK forces.

England is our country, and as englishmen and women we should be able to do what we like in our country and not dictated to by some criminal cabal.

Following on from those the Bank of England released a survey last week stating that just around the corner there is a very high/high risk of an high impacting event happening similar to 2008..

So it seems everyone from conspiracy theorists to the right old merchant bankers are singing from the same sheet that we are about to face another high impact event.

Bank of England systemic risk survey 2011 H2.
link to the pdf www.bankofengland.co.uk...

In tandem to this we seem to be heading down a very dangerous political path and it has felt for some time that the next big high impacting event will be the one they use to consolidate political and fiscal powers within the Eurozone.

Worrying times ahead.

Maybe the British government should learn how to control its own people rioting before worrying about those that have chosen to leave this dump.
Maybe they can call in the New York police for tips again.

I have no issues with whatever you want to call them in whatever language
but I do find these particular risk surveys interesting.. it is worth noting the first one of this type was in July 2008 (make of that what you will)
