    And that Barclays guy is looking for a £20m payout for being asleep on the job while his staff fiddled interest rates in the bank's favour. I asked once before: who are our real enemies?

    Bob Diamond, much like Rupert Murdoch, is a boss who, having been caught in the spotlight which is likely to bring about their downfall, continues to claim that they 'know nothing' whilst accepting huge benefits for leading a large corporation.

    Last week i was in the UK and watched 'Question Time' and the remarkable rant from 'Baldrick'

    ^That's a great rant! I think the chances of Britain actually doing something about the depredations of the banks are better than they are of the States doing something meaningful.

    Noam Chomsky nailed it a few years ago when the US government balled out Wall Street banks and big corporations the first time around with tax payers money. Chomsky said America had entered a new era where private debt was socialized, but their profits remained privatized.

    Rubbish, there have been loads of rebellions in Britain every century... you should read up on the history, the current establishment pump out a fiction that we don't do rebellion - we do it better than the French, and another one is long overdue.

    Finally the middle class are getting it stuck to them.

    Yup, Enlgand is fecked, has been for decades, now coming to a suburban idyll near you.

    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!"

    England, a nation that's been on the public piss so long they believe pub talk, unions, bankers and politicians. The Social State on steroids. USA, just another version of England except bigger sucker's for the welfare state. Remember, don't upset the status quo.

    Would happily follow any lady on the field of battle with a flag in one hand and her tits hanging out.
