The other's difficult to be attain'd."

A response to George Soros on his EU / Brexit meddling.
The Arch Neo-Liberal Echo Chamber Project Syndicate has published to Senile ramblings of that Failing Oligarch George Soros today on its sullied pages.
LONDON – Economic reality is beginning to catch up with the false hopes of many Britons. One year ago, when a slim majority voted for the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union, they believed the promises of the popular press, and of the politicians who backed the Leave campaign, that Brexit would not reduce their living standards. Indeed, in the year since they have managed to maintain those standards by running up household debt.
I have penned this response.
Soros is yesterday's, Man. Neo-Liberalism has been found out and Soros´s brand of Financialised Capitalism and Stae Monopoly manipulation of Markets has been Exposed. The People of Britain, as well as the people of Europe, remember the Golden Age of Social Democracy and even Democratic Socialism. Neo-Liberalism having failed to deliver on its promises and having undermined British Democracy and institutions will now be set aside, as will the EU. The EU, if it reforms and goes back on to the Track of Social Democracy, may Survive and see the power vector restored from the people to the Executive and not this top down Elite, Managerial command and control Farce.
At the heart of this, and this is something Soros, Does or rather should understand, is the Magic Money Tree. The EU, Britain and the Washington Consensus have all been suffering a debt deflation post the 2008 Collapse, Heterodox economic theorists like myself, Led by Hudson, Keen, Wray, Mitchell, Mosler, Murphy Werner, Dyson, Adair Turner and Even Mervyn King, have exposed the Neo-Liberal Pump and Dump scheme for what it is, A giant Ponzi Scheme, For these fraudulent Crimes alone, The Soros´s of this world should be serving Time at the Pleasure of The various States whose coffers they have hollowed out with the assistance of a generation or two of Weak Minded, Lemonade pocketed yet Champagne Tasted Politicians and Bureaucrats.
As well as being an Idea, Democracy is a process. The Process is informed by history and the Idea and the process is independent of Oligarchs such as Mr Soros. Now there are clear divisions in the Oligarchy, and I am glad to speculate that Soros´s faction is Losing. They have lost the Intellectual Arguments, even though they have tried to corrupt our academic Institutions, They Are Losing the Political Arguments even though they have tried to buy the silence of the media Outlets, They are losing the Popular arguments, as Poverty levels and health outcomes have become too obvious and so obviously the fault of the "Elites". So for all the blaming of victims, Spin and Hopeless Senile confirmation biases wrapped up in the shell of an Octagenarian has been, we still see that the old adage is holding true. As it always does, “all political careers end in failure”. Even covert ones and Mr Soros´s is no different. I for one celebrate and rejoice for Soros´s brand of extreme neoliberal fascism has no place in a Post-Scarcity Society with Ethical standards of Compassion caring love and respect. You have done enough damage, Mr Soros, enjoy a long and healthy retirement, but you are no longer needed or wanted. You are the Weakest Link, Good Bye.
The Obvious Answer of course to the Soros money power meddling ( Gnomes of Zurich as Harold Wilson used to call them) Is a Grand Brexit Coalition. The Archbishop of Canterbury said as much today. It may take the inevitable unravelling of the UDP obscenity to get the Tories into the Tent, But as the EU is effectively Hostile to Brexit, a Churchill/Atlee Style War Time / Article 50 Period Parliament for 2 years or so should get the Ship out of the Manufactured storms in the channel. For as long as the Fog of neo-liberalism hangs over the Channel we Brits will have to be Secure in the Knowledge that it is Europe that is cut off from reality and Not a Social democratic Great Britain which will in another year or so be under a Jeremy Corbyn Led Labour Government, Whilst the Tories rediscover Edmund Burke.
The fact is that two Conservative prime ministers (Cameron and May) have landed the British in a hell of a mess. The fundamental problem with Brexit is that there really is no middle way. You're either in the market with all the obligations that entails or you're out of it with the all the loss of privileges this involves. It's also very clear that the EU are in the driving seat. Thus May's government are faced with the alternative of a more apparent than real exit (aka Norway) or out for real which can conducted in an orderly or disorderly fashion. The problem with the Norway approach (which is Britain's best option right now) is why are they leaving at all since essentially they will have all the obligations of EU membership and no vote or influence in the EU.
Another of the 21st Century Pamphlateers. Reading the comments Toby who writes Econosophy and other musings recounts talking to Parents of his daughter about the Leisure economy and Guaranteed Income I would call it something like the Social Dividend or Commons Dividend and it could be Spun as Churchills Net across the Abyss that no one is free to fall below. Anyway raising these questions on hbow things are done is so much like the Empreors New clothes Follow the link for a translation of the original.
So off went the Emperor in procession under his splendid canopy. Everyone in the streets and the windows said, "Oh, how fine are the Emperor's new clothes! Don't they fit him to perfection? And see his long train!" Nobody would confess that he couldn't see anything, for that would prove him either unfit for his position, or a fool. No costume the Emperor had worn before was ever such a…
I clear out the History Cache on my computer fairly regularly my machine runs better with a good amount of free hard disc space as does everyone's it occurred to me today that it would be fun just to blog the review of some of the subjects I had begun my researches on Wikipedia no statistical analysis but just a cut and past to mull over at leisure. A kind of revision for pure intellectual curiosity.
My Main areas of concern in 2001 have been The Uk Property Market, UK property Law particularly the law related to fixed charge recievership and defaults/ non repayment on demand at expiry of agreements, Renewable energy, Sustainability and environmental issues. I am a Carbon Taxing skeptic but devout Tree Hugger and tin foil hatter more of a middle rare earth metaller than flat earther.
Anyway heres my notes document headed I have spared the Google searches and numerous books and articles on all of the same subjects but Wikipedia is fantastic particularly the Discussion Pages.
"If you say so? rather a lot of people seem to be getting rather upset about Basle 3 if it really is that simple and perhaps when the fat lady has sung it will become that simple again.
For now I fear the Goose that laid the golden egg is up for the chop.

"Punish The Seller?
You are still missing the point the seller is long since out of the equation when it comes to repossessions/foreclosures they release their rights when the contract between the Mortgagor( borrower ) and mortgagee( Bank) is made. Other third parties introduced by the bank without the Mortgagors knowledge are another matter altogether.
AN old Law lecturer once explained that in contract law the 'ee' was he that gets it the exception being mortgage law where the 'ee' was actually the 'Or', I am beginning to think that perhaps the ee's and ors are the right way around after all the Bank seems to get rather more for rather less don't you think?
The UK Government has received a European Commission ultimatum to hand over £20 million within two months or face legal action. The wrangle is over the fact that import tariffs on frozen garlic from outside the EU are lower than the rates for fresh garlic. And, according to the Commission, UK authorities carelessly levied the lower rate applicable to frozen garlic on imports of the fresh product from China, in breach of EU customs rules.
A Commission statement explained: "Between 2005 and 2006, the UK customs authorities allowed imports of fresh garlic from the People's Republic of China under wrong authorising documents. They have erroneously stated that the goods imported were frozen garlic for which significantly lower import duties apply.

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 …
How Much honesty can there be in the world.Hells Usury, mans oppressor.
Dear Reader,We meet our Economy in its repose,we see its citizens and see their polity.One community under usury, a life under the liberty of the yoke. A country Estate. Around a fireside after a day of work and sport,a father and two sons talk and reflect.A loved first Son speaks. ''Tell me this wise father how much money is there in
the world. Tell me where it comes from and where it goes to die?'' ''Son I can not answer your questions, for truly I do
not believe that any man has the answers. Men have pursued money and
in the pursuit lost sight of the prey, for it seems that one mans
pursuit seems frustrated in the victory and another’s object of
pursuit, is only real during the chase?'' ''Father I am your second son. I also wonder as my
elder brother does, what is the meaning of money.Should I lay suit for it and pay its high price, when
we have all that we want and need here …
