On the tides of Global Capital. David Cameron as King Kanut!

  • Keep getting the word out the Election result was a set back of sorts but the coming crash coming on Camerons Watch will leave no one else to blame. There is a huge bubble in the financialised economy at the moment and a worldwide slow down hitting as well as the Greece Grexit, Podemos in Spain and cracks in France and Italy that will erupt when Greece pops and drags the Euro down with it. On top of that the US dollar hedgemony is also going pop. Derivatives bubbles and countless financial frauds that will reveal all the bare arsed larceny when the tide goes out. In many respects hard though it is to see at the moment may well be better than the Hung parliament and constitutional crisis I for one was hoping for. I voted Green for their monetary reform policy it got scant attention in the campaign and little discussion of neo liberlaism got into much of the punditary I saw on the BBC. Anyhow Positive Money( got the Monetary reform message at least registering on the radar screen and it is important to let the Tories know that they are being watched very closely and will be held accountable. On your Mortgage Ross don't sweat price rises the next crash is a racing certainty and probably just around the corner. If your in the London South East region you can count on the mother of all crashes it is divorced from all reality.

    • Matthew Woodacre You talk about what will 'happen on Cameron's watch and leave no one else to blame' and then go on to mention 'worldwide slowdown, Greece Grexit, Spain, France, Italy, the euro, U.S. Dollar hedgemony, derivatives bubbles etc'??
    • Roger Glyndwr Lewis Matthew, Cameron and the tories are fully paid up members of the Church of Neo Liberalism, Margaret thatcher and ronald reagan are both beatified saints of the creed. Global elitism and finacialised capitalim of the State Monopoly Kind ( Fascism) Has National Governments acting in the interests of Global Corporates including the Global Banks that control the Financial System and for whom the Debt Based Fiat Money system has been created to serve. The problems I listed all flow from this Markets Construct that is devined by the sages in the financial media and referred to god like by the politicians The sun has Mystic Meg and the BBC has Robert Peston. Monetary reform is about taking back the money power and making Accountability for great power publicly transparent and operated in the public interest- If you are saying there is a contradiction vis camerons Watch, there are always contradictions in any system that is dynamic everything is part of a larger system,ergo, with respect to the Human construct of ´´The Markets´´There is a very real sense that Camerons Watch this time around is all his own doing, he has claimed the laurels of the Recovery after all? Of course he can not as Kanutes courtiers claimed for him control the tides of the Dollar Moon?…


The Current Chancellor of the British Exchequer is MP for Tatton which includes Knutsford in its constituency. Knutsford is what I had in mind and the Osbourne connection when I decided to read up on King Kanute. Danegeld is undoubtedly being paid to the City of London and Wall Street, The 2007 bail outs and ongoing bailouts by stealth are Danegeld to the Fiat debt based money system. Tatton has spawned plenty of material for quipping on hypocrisy and self absorption and Gideon is not letting the side down.

Knutsford was recorded in the William the Conqueror's Domesday Book of 1086 as Cunetesford ("Canute's ford"). King Canute (Knútr in Old Norse) was the king of England (1016–1035) and later king of Denmark, Norway and parts of Sweden as well. Local tradition says that King Canute forded the River Lily, which was said to be dangerous then, though other reports say it was the Birkin Brook at or near Booth Mill.[1] The English Place-Name Society gives the name as being derived from the Old English for Knutr's ford or possibly hillock ford.[2]

Austerity is a Myth and can be seen as Dane geld by proxy for paying off the Criminals in the City and Wall street.

I have been messing about with this Kipling Poem this week and decided to jam out a version to a backing track. I am considering adapting to poem as a Lyric that is more along the lines of Banking Corporations and Debt Geld. At this stage I relate so strongly to the original poem and read it that way immediately, so  I have a slight aversion to meddling with it.

I found the poem as I decided to do some reading about King Kanute. I had always learned that he was mad and had him placed in the same category of self deluded despots I found out that quite the contrary he was a wise and enlightened sort of chap for the time responsible for quite a few egalitarian and progressive initiatives by medievil and indeed todays standards. I had not know either that Canute was in fact a Viking and was paid off in DaneGeld( protection money) hence the Kipling poem referencing the date 980-1016 AD which are the dates for Ethelred the unready who succubed to Canutes Father and then Canute re invaded after the initial tenure of his father ended on his death.

Ruler of the waves[edit]

Henry of Huntingdon, the 12th-century chronicler, tells how Cnut set his throne by the sea shore and commanded the tide to halt and not wet his feet and robes. Yet "continuing to rise as usual [the tide] dashed over his feet and legs without respect to his royal person. Then the king leapt backwards, saying: 'Let all men know how empty and worthless is the power of kings, for there is none worthy of the name, but He whom heaven, earth, and sea obey by eternal laws.' He then hung his gold crown on a crucifix, and never wore it again "to the honour of God the almighty King".[95] This incident is usually misrepresented by popular commentators and politicians as an example of Cnut's arrogance.[96]
This story may be apocryphal. While the contemporary Encomium Emmae has no mention of it, it would seem that so pious a dedication might have been recorded there, since the same source gives an "eye-witness account of his lavish gifts to the monasteries and poor of St Omer when on the way to Rome, and of the tears and breast-beating which accompanied them".[54] Goscelin, writing later in the 11th century, instead has Cnut place his crown on a crucifix at Winchester one Easter, with no mention of the sea, and "with the explanation that the king of kings was more worthy of it than he".[54] Nevertheless, there may be a "basis of fact, in a planned act of piety"[54] behind this story, and Henry of Huntingdon cites it as an example of the king's "nobleness and greatness of mind."[95] Later historians repeated the story, most of them adjusting it to have Cnut more clearly aware that the tides would not obey him, and staging the scene to rebuke the flattery of his courtiers; and there are earlier Celtic parallels in stories of men who commanded the tides, namely Saint Illtud, Maelgwn, king of Gwynedd, and Tuirbe, of Tuirbe's Strand, in Brittany.[97]
The encounter with the waves is said to have taken place at Thorn-eye (Thorn Island), or Southampton in Hampshire. There were and are numerous islands so named, including at Westminster and Bosham in West Sussex, both places closely associated with Cnut. According to the House of Commons Information Office,[98] Cnut set up a royal palace during his reign on Thorney Island (later to become known as Westminster) as the area was sufficiently far away from the busy settlement to the east known as London. It is believed that, on this site, Cnut tried to command the tide of the river to prove to his courtiers that they were fools to think that he could command the waves.[99] Conflictingly, a sign on Southampton city centre's Canute Road reads, "Near this spot AD 1028 Canute reproved his courtiers".[100][101]

A.D. 980-1016

IT IS always a temptation to an armed and agile nation
To call upon a neighbour and to say: –
“We invaded you last night — we are quite prepared to fight,
Unless you pay us cash to go away.”

And that is called asking for Dane-geld,
And the people who ask it explain
That you’ve only to pay ‘em the Dane-geld
And then you’ll get rid of the Dane!

It is always a temptation for a rich and lazy nation,
To puff and look important and to say: –
“Though we know we should defeat you,
we have not the time to meet you.
We will therefore pay you cash to go away.”

And that is called paying the Dane-geld;
But we’ve proved it again and again,
That if once you have paid him the Dane-geld
You never get rid of the Dane.

It is wrong to put temptation in the path of any nation,
For fear they should succumb and go astray;
So when you are requested to pay up or be molested,
You will find it better policy to say: –

“We never pay any-one Dane-geld,
No matter how trifling the cost;
For the end of that game is oppression and shame,
And the nation that plays it is lost!”

Meet The Fuggers, Brexit, The Euro and Clueless Elites.

Meet the Fuggers or, its the Money Power stupid. Brexit, The Euro and clueless Elites.

The Eastern Roman empire under Justinian saw the seeds of its final fall to The Ottomans when Abd El Melik started paying tribute in Gold coinage under his own Political Branding you might say.

With all the talk of Brexit being the removal of a final obstacle to the deeper federation of a European State transcending tiresome nationalism, perhaps a little review of History, particularly Monetary history, might not be such a bad thing.

In the review of European competences carried out as a consultation by the foreign office regarding Brexit and or reform requirements of the Eu, two of the papers need to be considered in the context of the Money power argument.

The first paper considered is the Subsidiarity and proportionality aspects of the Lisbon treaty and the competences of the EU institutions vis National and regional democratic institutions. This is a trade-off between Centralised Efficiency and …
