    Nice work if you can get it

    On a serious note, there needs to be more footage circulating that shows what a disgusting, incompetent, old drunk, he is.

    Oceania has always been at war with East Asia. Another reason to not bother going to London.

    US Treasuries, Yield Curves

    Bernanke was insane. Yellen maintained the Fed's balance sheet (she would have been buying up treasuries to replace those on their books that were maturing). Powell, doesn't appear to be conducting any direct Fed interventions in the treasuries market at all, and is raising interest rates (3 trillion left in assets to mature/dispose of. At 400 billion in 10 months, that 40 billion per month, or just over 8 years to return the balance sheet to normal).

    US Treasuries, Yield Curves

    Here's the FED's balance sheet (Jerome Powell took over in Feb 2018.):-

    US Treasuries, Yield Curves

    That's what seems to be happening in the USA, with the end of QE, the shrinking of the Feds balance sheet, and rising interest rates. If there's a recession or another crisis at the end of next year I wouldn't be surprised.

    US Treasuries, Yield Curves

    N.B. Noticed a mislabeling on the GILTs/UK curve (Dec-18 and Jan-18 are on the each other's rows).

    US Treasuries, Yield Curves

    Same thing is happening in the UK, but at a slower rate (the continuation of ZIRP by the BOE artificially suppresses the short end the most):-
  11. Whilst everyone has been pre-occupied with Brexit, it looks like the US Treasury curve has been quietly flattening in the background:-

    Northern Ireland

    Yes, it's an artificial bone of contention manufactured by remainers and the EU to make the whole process of Brexit unnecessarily troublesome. The so called solution to this nonsense is absolutely byzantine, and I cannot see how anyone could read it any other way (unless of course you are a remainer, an EU bureaucrat, Treason May's, or one of her lackeys). Tying Northern Ireland to Southern Ireland, two distinct jurisdictions, and putting a border between the mainland and Northern Ireland down the middle of the Irish Sea, is stupid, complicated, treats one group of UK citizens differently to the rest in terms of the constitutional outcome of Brexit (at the say so of the EU, plus nobody voted to split the UK from itself), and looks very much like a partial land grab by the EU. The default position in the case of Brexit, is a border between the UK and the Republic of Ireland, further if the Republic of Ireland are unhappy with this (the people in the UK have already signaled through the referendum result that they accept this inconvenience), and wish to maintain the free flow of goods and people with the UK, then the only democratic and fair solution is to give the people of the ROI a referendum to choose between this, or remaining in the EU. The narrative that has been painted by the pro-EU media and politicians, on the other hand, completely misses this point (instead we get incredulous nonsense in newspapers and hot air from mincing politicians wringing their hands, claiming how difficult this all is), and belies the unfair, underhanded, authoritarian nature of the thinking behind the EU.

    Northern Ireland

    The question of Northern Ireland is a red herring by remainers and the EU, to manufacture an artificial crisis, or so called "irresolvable problem" over Brexit, which would either delay/water down Brexit, or cause constitutional problems within the UK (as a punishment of sorts for daring to leave). The Republic of Ireland should be offered a referendum on a choice between the EU, or freedom of movement and goods between the UK. The narrative is of course being portrayed, by the Pro-EU media personalities and politicians, as a problem with the UK, not the EU, whose failings of authoritarianism and anti-democratic activity, have precipitated this mess in the first place.
