    Bump. Winter series hurray! West Indies win toss and elect to bat. Broad dropped for Curran! Two spinners and 3 keepers selected. Wicket likely to be low and slow with uneven bounce. Can Jimmy Anderson remain fit and skittle them on the first day? (W.G.Grace emoticon)

    How Britain's £239billion buy-to-let bubble burst

    No my point remains coherent. The relationship between leveraged bank money and money derived from labour is asymmetrical. Your point was something of a non sequitur.

    Has money derived from labour been priced correctly over the last 15 years?

    My position is that money should not be leveraged against tenants. Your argument is that money should be leveraged against tenants so long as bank margins are high. Do you work for a bank?

    You have misunderstood. It is not a commercial transaction for the tenant so by allowing the landlord commercial leverage gives them asymmetrical power against the tenant.

    Allowing anyone to buy a Buy-to-Let with a mortgage is a terrible policy. It directly leverages capital AGAINST labour and creates a generation of indentured servants. There is a genuine demand for rental properties in the UK but it is a fraction of the size of the behemoth people-farming rental sector we have today. The difference in size represents how much we, as a country, leverage middle class wealth to impoverish the poor. It is an offence in any country calling itself "modern" or "democratic". BTL mortgages should be banned outright. Anyone found to be renting a property with a mortgage should be imprisoned for fraud. Landlords should pay the Council Tax/ Poll Tax/ Land Value Tax in full. 3 year standard assured tenancies as a minimum with only the tenant allowed to break early. Further capital gains paid on the profit. Either that or let the workers leverage their labour. Work 40 hours a week and have the bank pay them 200. Which system sounds most sensible?

    If our politicians had anything about them, which from recent events is evidently not the case, they would seek to turn the UK into Singapore. We are on our last legs as far as being a first world country.

    The Peasants are Revolting, warns IMF

    It is OK because to the London elite Barnsley has always been a Northern shithole and the people that live there are racists.

    When I was young and super-aggressive my parents used to lecture me on not fighting. "Just smile at them instead". I wonder what the updated advice is for the 21st century? Don't fight. Don't smile. Make sure your face conveys understanding and empathy of the socio-historic plight of whomever it is trying to pick a fight with you. Jesus wept. To think of all the things white people have given the world and this is how we are treated.

    I will cheer on business when they start improving the country rather than simply harvesting its resources.

    Brexit Betrayal thread

    The last sentence is problematic for the MP. People are sick of businesses growing whilst they get poorer. They are sick of companies investing whilst they get poorer. They are sick of being employed whilst getting poorer. The MP does not seem to realise the disconnect between "business" and the standard of life of ordinary people. This is why so many cheered No Deal because it might actually improve their standard of life (in the long run) by actively undermining "business" and "The Economy" in the short term. When "The Economy" no longer works for people don't be too surprised when they turn against it. 20 years of getting poorer is not acceptable in peace time in the 21st century. Never before in human history have we ever been so rich. Yet "The Economy" manages to make the majority of us poorer. People have called bullshit on this and your MP would do well to wise up.

    The Peasants are Revolting, warns IMF

    I don't think it has run its course. Barring major wars the world can only get smaller and more interconnected. People will always look to arbitrage their wages to wherever in the world they can purchase the most tat. The bad seed of immigration has already been planted ensuring the destruction of the indigenous populations of the West. Globalisation is now intractable.

    So you're saying there are more of them that we need to kill? How many, roughly?

    I think the plan is to Chindianise the world and make 95% of people lower middle class, poorly educated, politically unaware, docile and easy to control. The plan seems to be to gut the productive parts of Western economies and ship all these jobs across to Asia and creating an osmosis in living standards. Great if you are Chindian, terrible if you are Western. Great plan for the NWO however they have overcooked it and people have felt the burn. Making living standards fall for 20 years and not expecting the plebs to rebel was daft with hindsight.

    Those fucking Indians are a right pain in the arse. Thank God us white people murdered most of them in the 19th century.
