All I want to see is the serious fraud squad being brought into this rigging of the rates and some people paying with time behind bars, sadly I doubt they of the fancy handshakes will allow this to happen or at best serve up some poor underling instead of the fat cats who planned and profited from it.

To be glad I am just happy that the mainstream is now saying and accepting in general the things we have been saying since 2008. OK it's taken 4 years, but the majority are now waking up to the fiat system in all it's corrupt glory. if it spreads awareness great. one up for Baldrick I say. Good on him!


Aware to the fact we have been lied to and robbed but we wont stand against these people! The truth is when public opinion starts creating descent they will lock up some nobody the people will stop crying but the real threats who have been robbing us will still be doing the same old things and nothing will change! Cause nothing ever does unless the victims are the ones who change it but this will never happen! We are all hypocrites following the biggest of us down the drain! God help our descendents for they will suffer for our indifference!

Nothing will happen with this because the BOE, FSA, BBA and every other financial body and even government all knew what was going on.

The bottom line is ALL UK banks are insolvent, all of them!

The BOE know this, which is why the rigging of LIBOR at low levels was allowed to go on, this has been going for a few years now! Labour knew all too well, oh yeah, Brown and that useless trash Darling knew all too well what was going on, but did nothing, because they knew that they could do nothing, so simply joined them. BOE have been doing it through QE, so of course the banks are just literally following on from BOE policy!

All QE is, is a way of manipulating market interest rates, so it reaches across banks and government bonds but obviously not to general public, who are scum and simply their as a resource in the eyes of the Central Bankers.

The government will do nothing about this, as they NEED the banking mob. It is the banks that run the country, not the country that runs the banks. The only way to bankroll the deficit, is to get that print press going 24/7 and then to make banks, with the cheap worthless money backed against thin air, to buy government debt. This is the loop and the ever growing mountain of debt that not only cannot be cleared, but will not be cleared in any of our lifetimes!

America and the UK just want to print their way out of debt, this only leads to the banks having an even greater hold on the country (if it wasn't great enough to begin with). All countries that do not have the ability to print their way out of their deficit, will go the way of Greece, because what the Central bankers want. However, you can only go so far doing what the UK and the USA are doing, before inflation, real inflation hits big time. Think Weimar Germany then times it by a few Trillion and that's what will be in store for us, but that concerns multi millionaire bankers about as much as starvation in Africa concerns drunk Brits at a Chinese buffet!

GO TONY ROBINSON!!!


If this only made ONE person sit up and think 'yeah I'm being screwed over big time and I want to do something about it' then that's at least less one idiot in the world.

Although it is difficult to not think of Baldrick when watching him

I skipped page five cos I was getting quite annoyed, so apologies if this has already been raised.

First...I agree...everything Baldrick said was correct.

However, to quote another great BBC TV show..."you cant con an honest man". (Hustle, in case you were wondering)

How have the banks been able to perpetuate this scam...because of you (and me).

You wanted the cheap loans, and mortgages for five time you salary (even tho you'd never pay them off)

You wanted the interest free overdraft and credit cards coming out of your ar5e.

You have run up debt that would have had you parents...and your parents parents spinning in their graves.

Why?

Because you wanted it now...didnt want to save...or work harder...or make do with what you had. No payment down and six months interest free.

So yeah...string the bankers up, they deserve it, but take a little responsibilty for your own actions.

No , I'm not a banker, just a regular guy working his tits off to stay afloat...same as everyone else, but have realised that the only reason this "situation" affects me at all is because of the debt I have run up...!

(I fully accept and include myself in every "you" statement above)

Where else were people going to live if they didn't take these mortgages out?
There simply is very little affordable housing available and hasn'r been since the great council house sell off which sparked the house price boom.
And guess what, that was instigated by bankers and politicians.

People took the credit cards because they knew no better - MSM bombarded people with suggestive imagery, incredibly clever marketing and advertising etc, politicians encouraged people to spend to help the economy etc and why? - to provide massive profits for the bankers and the corporate bosses and elites.

And everything was oh so sweet for the bankers who were literally milking this country dry with their grossly enormous profits but when it all went tits up through their own incompetence and mismanagement they needed 'us' to bail them out and then attempt to blame 'us' for lending too much, the very thing that enabled them to make the vast profits in the first place.

The only responsibility we have is for our ignorance and compliance.

The whole incestuous relationship between the bankers / industry / politicians / judiciary / media etc is self-serving, self-perpetuating and is rancid and rotten to the core - we need a full system re-boot.

Banks will not lend because everyone is in debt making risk reward too risky.

Businesses that want money are trying to cover themselves through a 'demand crunch' they are really zombie companies , hoping for people(their customers) buy eventually, hence not a good risk for banks.

Expecting banks to lend because of the bailout is naive and only socialists would suggest it.

As I said, I in no way defend the banks taking advantage of our stupidity, I wasnt being sarcastic or ironic when I said "string them up, they deserve it".

But really!

Is it ignorance or greed that that forces people to buy the latest flat screen, games console, smart phone..etc?

Was it necessity or avarice that forced people to take a mortgage instead of council homes?

I understand, we all want to better ourselves, and we were sold the con that we could have whatever we wanted. Could we afford it? should we live within our means or try and better our position so we could afford it?

Or shall we just buy into the con and get it now?

This is why I quoted Hustle at the start of my reply.

My parents...and depending on your age, probably yours as well, only ever had one debt...the mortgage. Everything else was either saved for or done without. And ask yourself this...If you only had a mortgage, and your mortgage wasnt to the absolute edge of what you could get when you took it out. (not what you needed to buy a property...what you could get) would you be struggling?

As I said, I have no love for the banking establishment, they have taken full advantage of our eagerness to climb into debt. All I ask, is that whatever replaces it (which will undoubtably be exactly the same system) remember.

What about savers?
Borrowers and lenders got to renegotiate or default.

Also people can rent.

While this may not be a very popular view (seems like few of my comments are) I will say this.

It is encouraging to see people speak out but is worrisome at the same time.

When you back an animal into a corner you are going to get bit.

The Olympics are coming up... large crowds of onlookers and athletes from around the world.

What better way to start a pandemic and stimulate the economy by removing workers? Or ending the game.

It is economics and anything in abundance becomes dirt cheap - human life included. As such we are nothing but a statistic to these evil entities that don't have a soul they consider.

I hope I am absolutely wrong here but it had been written and even they memorialized it on the Georgia guidestones.

If this is the case, the only real question is how long an incubation period are we looking at and since they designed the menace, only they know the answer.

I would stay out of crowds for awhile after the Olympics and see what surfaces and hopefully nothing but I don't trust them, at all. They know how close the flashpoint is... they created it. All the revolt by peoples around the world, all the money failing, all the jobs becoming bigger government and control. Being steps ahead of us and having contingencies for every conceivable scenario we will continue to be played.

Even the mass arrest thing with Drake coming from "Pentagon" sources could very well have been their means of getting everyone who is in the loop a chance to reveal themselves.

Deception is the name of their game. While nothing will totally eliminate greed, the only saving Grace here is divine intervention.. and only God knows all hearts and minds and is in the position to judge.

I leave it in His hands because it is definitely getting to hit the fan time.

Like I said, I hope I am wrong, but they can't help but telegraph their punches... and they predict our reactions to them.

I know and I understand that.

But if we don't buy these things the economy stagnates - or stays flat or something like that.

And it's the constant bombardment from marketing and advertising through MSM who are all in it with the bankers and career politicians etc.



Was it necessity or avarice that forced people to take a mortgage instead of council homes?


Not at all, it was necessity as there simply isn't anywhere near enough affordable housing.
After the great council house sell off very few council houses have been built - the basic law of supply and demand caused private housing prices to hyper inflate - and record repossessions and large debt resulted.



I understand, we all want to better ourselves, and we were sold the con that we could have whatever we wanted. Could we afford it? should we live within our means or try and better our position so we could afford it?


But that's the dream Thatcher forced on everyone and every single Prime Minister since has re-inforced it.



My parents...and depending on your age, probably yours as well, only ever had one debt...the mortgage


I was brought up on a council estate in North East England - my parents never imagined having a mortgage and yes we had other debts - for a while my Mam had a rolling slate at most of the local shops etc and I remember hiding from the rent man etc - it was a necessity just to survive - but I must admit it was only for relatively small amounts.

Saving was very much something other people did.



As I said, I have no love for the banking establishment, they have taken full advantage of our eagerness to climb into debt.


That eagerness was fuelled by those who sought to exploit it for their own personal greed and avarice.

The current banking / financial systems serve little benefit, if any, to ordinary, everyday people and there are viable alternatives.

Renting private property can be more expensive than getting a mortgage because lenders are very reluctant to offer mortgages at present so again, supply and demand.

Wow, well said. I have always loved Tony Robinson especially for his work with Rowan Akinson, but I didn't realize that he indeed had such a grasp on the financial system as a whole.

It wasnt always like that. The only reason that the econmy took that turn was because it bacame a bigger generator of gonvernment cash than anything else.

And your right, it was advertising and media that bought these marvels to our attention.

Prior to the 70's, our econmy was based on what we manufactured and sold to the rest of the world. Our GDP was based on our value on the global market. Then we became a consumer market, and all of a sudden our GDP is based on the money we're spending which provides taxes to the government.

Unfortunatley, as you probably remember, there was huge unemployment throughout the 70's & 80's, plus all of the strike actions and most of britains industry went tits up. So now we have an economy based on people buying things, and very few people with enough money too buy things.

The banks see an opportunity. "Yes that television is expensive isnt it....no, you dont have enough money to buy it......well you could save hard for a year, less if you do without that trip to the pub on a friday night.....what?...oh you say you really really want it now!......ok....i'll give you £500 pounds now and you can pay it back over 3 years and that way you can have the tele now but it will cost you a bit more.....say £600 pounds......Deal.........Sorry, what was that?.....the DVD player? yes it is very nice and it would look great next to your new TV.....how much you ask?...well if you spread the payments......" ad ifinitum...
---this paragraph continues after this short break-----

Unfortunately, one of the other big lies we bought into was the "communists everywhere" lie. And cheap affordable council houses were marketed as almost communistic.

Not somwhere to live because it was cheap and affordable, but somwhere you had to live, state handouts, because you couldnt afford anwhere better. (council estate lad here, wouldnt have wanted to grow up anywhere else. It was like village living only bigger and in the city not the country)




But that's the dream Thatcher forced on everyone and every single Prime Minister since has re-inforced it.


That....deplorable......thing....woman thing....cant comment....rage building.......vision blurring.....




Saving was very much something other people did.


But I'm guessing, doing without was what most did. I wasnt strictly accurate with my "parents with no debt.." remark. But like yourself, it was owing the butcher a fiver for a week, or not answering the door to the man from the pru, and it was all "necassary". It wasnt a £3000 credit card bill for holidays and luxuries.




That eagerness was fuelled by those who sought to exploit it for their own personal greed and avarice.


And the whole crux of my point is it was us as much as them...they were just better at it.
