In response to "stupid" and "desperate", it passes muster just fine.

I think we've exhausted the possibilities of this discussion anyway. You're clearly a delusional fantasist, and I see no profit...

It's plain that this comment was an afterthought, and that not much thought was put into it. Using terms like "stupid" and "desperate" doesn't credit your argument. It is in the EU's interests for...

If a financial institution does so with the blessing - even on the instructions - of a sovereign national Government, under what jurisdiction could it be prosecuted?

IIRC it was the US that bailed out AIG, so the Greek taxpayer still didn't pick up the tab for that.

On the latter part, it takes two to tango. Goldman Sachs would not have done what it did unasked,...

Where's the evidence that Mail journalists performed the recording? The article says that the recording was leaked to the Mail on Sunday.

You make it sound as if people's political allegiances are easily changed by the latest multi-million dollar advertising campaign. But doesn't such a notion make the whole idea of democracy a bit...

Frequently.



If the public schoolboys do it, then this talk of "class" is just a smokescreen, isn't it? Personally, I think you're talking complete codswallop, and are making it up as you go along...

Only if you think that the consequences of that 'hit' begin and end with the institution in debt. As the whole "too big to fail" narrative goes, however, that is not true in the case of large...

Speak for yourself. The working class does not begin and end with the residents of Basildon, nor of Essex, however boorish and uncouth you claim them to be.

Typical Kipper, unwilling to deal with the facts or reality. There's a big difference between turnout at Euro-elections and turnout at General Elections.

It's more likely that the Conservatives will (possibly unwittingly) take us out of the EU, than that UKIP will ever be allowed anywhere near the corridors of power in this country. Even the faint...

They "won" the "last national election" on a low turnout, with far fewer votes than the Lib Dems gained in 2010 (coming third), on an election that does not, it is fair to say, inspire all that many...

The EU and Goldman Sachs do not control the behaviour of investors, but they are eminently capable of predicting it - and this is all this is, a prediction. Not a "threat" or an attempt to "bully"...

Would they have touched UKIP with a barge-pole - I think not. Not a reasonable comparison. Bob Crow went on to found TUSC and the left-ring anti-EU alliance NO2EU, though they've not done nearly as...
