It's looking like I might have been just a tad premature writing a post a few days ago making crude analogies between recent events in Britain and Nazi Germany
The material just keeps on coming
First, Gordon Brwno announces an initiative to militarise school kids (aka Schooltrip Troopers aka the Brown Shirts aka the Gordo-Jugend)
and now, today, Gordon's doing his best 'last days in the bunker' impression, raving about how fucking great everything is financially and barking out decrees to a non-existent fantasy economy which is somehow going to pull him, his mates and all the rest of us out of the shit
There again, I suppose the word 'low' is a relative term and maybe 10-15% pa inflation and even greater increase in money supply really is 'low' - and maybe the forex markets really aren't dumping pounds as fast as Gordon and his banker buddies can whisk them out of thin air...
And if anyone out there has ingested enough aspartame to really believe that inflation is low and that a short term reduction in interest rates represents an excellent opportunity to borrow some more money may I recommend that they give this guy a call (a link that really does need the sound on to appreciate in all its glory)
and whilst (still) on the subject of all things Hitler, here's a postcard of Adolf which was doctored by British intelligence for circulation in Germany during the last war. The editing work is very subtle and may be hard to spot at first but I can assure you that this is indeed a retouched photograph...
