  1. " The 28% drop in supply and the 17% drop in stock levels for London are highly significant and point towards price recovery in the near future, despite lower demand. Brexit or no Brexit, London remains a highly desirable world city. Post-boom, prices have been correcting in the capital for 36 months and, should the mists of uncertainty clear, the stage looks set for this leading property market to return to the growth phase of the property cycle.

    yeah, you know, the very epitome of right wing politics:


    widespread inequality - check

    elitism - check

    low tax on the elites - check

    high tax on individuals - check

    crap public services - check

    widespread poverty (poor housing and food/water supply) - check


    "leftism" is the exact opposite of all of those. = "No one left behind"



    I lived there.... their attitude is 'I don't need to care for the poor because I pay taxes'. This idea is at the centre of Marxist thinking. The idea that you 'outsource your social responsibility to the state'. Your check list doesn't make sense. It could apply equally to France: a highly leftist state which is now in turmoil because the Socialist policies of the last 50 years have utterly failed.


  3. Your spat seems to be taking us off topic...


    Lost civilisations in Africa...

    Apart from all the famous Nile centred stuff that goes south to pyramids in Sudan.

    No one seems to know how old this one is....


    And then there is:


    These guys has maths, law, banking and metallurgy well over a 1000 years ago...



  4. And this: http://investmentwatchblog.com/donald-trump-won-a-rigged-election/


    There is a four-page memo just made available to the entire House of Representatives. Congressmen who have seen the memo call it “shocking” “explosive” “alarming” “mind-blowing.” They say it shows conspiracy and collusion between the Obama administration, the FBI, the DOJ, and the Clinton campaign, to stop Trump from reaching the White House.

    Rep. Scott Perry said, “Is this happening in America, or is this the KGB? That’s how alarming it is.”

    North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows said, “Part of me wishes I didn’t read it, because I don’t want to believe that those kinds of things could be happening in this country…”

    Rep. Matt Gatetz said, “Not only will the release of this memo result in DOJ firing, but people will go to jail.”

    Former Secret Service Agent Dan Bongino said, “Take it to the bank, the FBI/FISA docs are devastating for the Dems…the real Obama, the vengeful narcissist, is going to be exposed for all to see.”

    Rep Steve King said, “I have read the memo. The sickening reality has set in…it is worse than Watergate.”

    This is a political earthquake. Before this is over, the Democrat Party will be in shambles. The legacies of Hillary and Obama will be in ashes. The FBI may never recover. And dare I say it, Hillary herself could wind up in prison- along with many of her closest friends and confidants.

    Very compelling and interesting analysis on Trump.




    He's looking more and more like a pro-Israel war monger.


    This says it all: Steve Bannon quoted in Vanity Fair: [Trumps is] "a blunt instrument for us....I don't know whether he really gets it or not."

  7. Snowden interview today:




    Got something you want to ask Edward Snowden? Maybe about his work at the National Security Agency or how he's getting along in Russia? Or perhaps something a bit less complimentary?

    You might get your chance to pose such questions on Tuesday when Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey interviews the famed NSA whistleblower via video conference. The interview will be broadcast at 9:05 a.m. PT on Periscope,

    Twitter's live-streaming app.

    It's been three years since Snowden, now 33, leaked information about NSA surveillance programs like Prism, which gave the US access to people's emails, video chats, photos and documents through some of the world's biggest tech companies. The disclosures put pressure on Silicon Valley companies including Apple, Google and Yahoo to step up their efforts in encryption and privacy and galvanized the companies to push back against the government on issues of spying and user data.


    The Q&A session was announced Monday by Pardon Snowden, a campaign launched in September by major civil rights groups working to win official forgiveness for Snowden. The former NSA-contractor-turned-whistleblower has been living in self-imposed exile in Russia to avoid the charges he faces in the US for violating the Espionage Act and other laws.
