It is surely beyond doubt that they are. There are four Commissions, and the fact that they are supposedly independent doesn't matter. Like many other "independent" bodies, their terms of reference are set by the government, and just like the NHS Pay Review Body, the government have supplied terms favourable to themselves.

That, and I am not sure that these commissions will ever be truly "independent". It starts with the question of who gets to pick the members of such a commission. And people who will then end up serving as part of a political commission like that, if they are seasoned political experts, will themselves have had some sort of personal political history, and they will have, or have had some manner of ties to a political party. And thus, they will never be able to make truly independent decisions. It's all smoke and mirrors.

This isn't the US. Violations of electoral law and funding rules are rarely punished there because the FEC has three reds and three blues and they end up deadlocked every time.

We're great respecters of the rule of law in this country. Even party loyalists can be persuaded to do the right thing. The best way of locking that down over here is to lay down terms of reference that prevent it. It didn't matter how much the PRB members love the NHS, their terms of reference effectively amount to "justify 1%". It doesn't matter if the members of the Boundary Commissions can see that basing their constituencies on the rolls rather than the census is unfair, their terms of reference are to use the rolls and they'll do as they're told or risk exceeding their remit (and never working in such a position again).

>The US military has launched a cruise missile attack on a Syrian airfield in response to the Assad regime’s use of chemical weapons this week, marking the first time the US has become a direct combatant against the Syrian regime.

>Though Trump lacked congressional and international authorisation for the strike, prominent US politicians immediately gave him political cover.

Is Aldi or Lidl quicker at scanning shopping? We put it to the test

In Aldi, it took a mere 50 seconds to scan the items and 1 minute 38 seconds for the full transaction. That also allowed for a credit card machine issue, which required Henry to enter his card into the machine for a second time.

As for Lidl, it would have taken roughly only 35 seconds to scan the items, but the full transaction took five minutes and 19 seconds due to a barcode missing from one of the items.

>“This was the largest audience ever to witness an inauguration, period,” said Spicer, in one of several statements contradicted by photographs and transit data. “These attempts to lessen the enthusiasm of the inauguration are shameful and wrong.”

>Kellyanne Conway, a senior White House aide, told NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday Spicer had merely been offering “alternative facts”, a phrase that was received with widespread astonishment.

I voted remain. I'm just not naive enough to believe it is only the news outlets who's world view I disagree with that bend the truth. If I believed the news outlets that I agreed with was the objective truth then it should have been clearly impossible for trump or leave to have ever won.

I consider the news to basically be the world's oldest reality show. Whilst it is accurate to say all the things on reality TV shows happened the footage/ details are obviously cherry picked to create whatever view the editor wants.

As a part of my general interest in current affairs, I dig around a lot on the subject of human rights and violence, including torture and so on.

Obviously some things are more difficult to read than others, but today I just didn't feel like I had the emotional capacity to go through a particular report.

I know it sounds fluffy as I'm not there to experience it myself, but truth be told I've been getting 'burn-out' more often lately.

Do any of you lads find you have to set some sensible limits on the media you expose yourself to? Any practical advice on how to avoid this sort of burn-out when reading about serious or distressing topics?

>And then when subsidies dry up, quite often it results in a near complete withdrawal of private capital. Just take the case of the Nokia plant in Hungary. It was heavily subsidised by the Hungarian government with tax incentives and whatnot, but as soon as those began to run out, Nokia upped sticks and left.
See, that just seems a further argument in favour of regulating capital flows.
>Most of them are now owned and operated by multinational industrial and investment conglomerates who, if at all, would not go quietly.
That's one of the problems. I mean, I tend to be hopeless about the future. We've handed too much power away to those who'd do us ill.

I believe New Zealand was the most socialist of western countries under Muldoon. The comparison of government spending and nationalisation seems an odd one though, since Sweden had functioning social democracy (where private ownership was sufficiently docile, rendering nationalisation unnecessary.) and Growth was also higher during the Breton-Woods period in nearly all countries, which leaves me with some impression that the level of regulation is something of a sidenote. (Especially when you factor that to find one who hasn't bowed to neoliberalism in one form or another, you're looking essentially at one country - North Korea.)

>And just how are you going to make labour scarcer?
Primarily with the aim of full employment being put high up on the policy proposal list. That might also include restrictions on immigration.
>Disregarding for a moment that in our globalised world
Ah, see, the primary purpose of the suggestion is to Disregard our globalised world and bring the whole thing under much stronger democratic and domestic control. Not total isolationism, just a much more managed system. Then you force domestic investment and (as a first world country, anyway) can more or less ignore foreign investment.

Fundamentally changing the nature of the global economy would be the aim. You'd almost certainly need to agree such a thing multilaterally. The fact it's impossible is accepted a-priori and used as a reason for me to become increasingly misanthropic and wish for an increasingly unstable world. I increasingly feel that there's nothing to lose.

>See, that just seems a further argument in favour of regulating capital flows.

Maybe to you. But in reality, you are simply not going to succeed at that. And just what was the Hungarian government supposed to do when Nokia withdrew after the subsidies ran out? Seize Nokia's assets? And would any foreign investor ever have invested in Hungaria again after that?

>I mean, I tend to be hopeless about the future. We've handed too much power away to those who'd do us ill.

Governments and countries around the globe are up to their necks in debt, slow growth and sluggish tax revenue. The last thing they will do at this point is renationalise industries that are worth trillions in assets alone, and buy out their private owners.

>The comparison of government spending and nationalisation seems an odd one though

Not at all. They're two sides of the same coin, and that is the degree of a government's involvement in its country's economic affairs. Whether the government then spends money through its fully owned industries or does so directly is in the end not really relevant.

Well yeah, as I say: That's accepted in advance. (Indeed if you want my entire political attitude nowadays in a sentence, it's "Things can only get worse, but let's look at how they could be better.")
>And just what was the Hungarian government supposed to do when Nokia withdrew after the subsidies ran out?
Taking over assets would be one option. Setting different terms for market access in advance would be another. Finally, the importance of foreign investment is downplayed, because domestic investors can always be nudged towards domestic investment. (Admittedly, I suspect Hungary isn't in quite so powerful a position in that regard.)
>Governments and countries around the globe are up to their necks in debt, slow growth and sluggish tax revenue
Hence the preference for fiscal repression. Debt plunged from WW2 until the early 70s because of the way we strung up the financial sector.
>and that is the degree of a government's involvement in its country's economic affairs
This seems the kind of thinking that would make the NHS fungible with single-payer healthcare + privately owned hospitals.
>Also, don't forget that globalisation, for all its negative effects on mature post-industrial societies such as ours, has brought prosperity to many people in developing countries.
I feel many of those benefits could still be delivered. Remember that the preference isn't for zero trade, but for balanced trade. Strictly speaking we could leave phone manufacturing to China, so long as we build something else here to maintain balance within a reasonable period. (i.e. say 5 years, and in that 5 years even if we've a huge trade deficit with China, maybe we've got a huge surplus with the US, so we're balanced, and maybe China's also running an equivalent with Russia)
>people will just laugh at those silly Brits thinking they have weight to throw around by wanting to make labour scarcer in their country
I did note that the whole thing has to be set up multilaterally. I mean, step 1 is the capital-control system, and if we can't all agree to that a-la Breton Woods then we're done at the first hurdle. (We can't.)

One thing I will give you is that the global financial sector has got completely out of control. It is just a bloated cancer growth of markets and economies which contributes nearly nothing to real sector growth, and whose volatility and valuation bubbles in 2007/08 plunged us into the greatest real sector crisis since the 1930s. And a sizeable chunk of industrial output and profit is now siphoned off solely as interest for the mind-bogglingly vast financial assets that circle the globe always looking for the highest return on investment.

One reason why labour market conditions are so unfavourable for those who actually do the work within a company is the insatiable demands of the global financial caste. And lax and quantitative easing-focused monetary policy of central banks around the globe has only exacerbated the deluge of money desperately looking for profit. And major corporations now have all these additional hungry mouths to feed besides having to generate profit just to stay in business and be able to pay their employees. While smaller businesses are increasingly struggling to get loans approved at all.

How do we solve the problem of financial markets drowning in this liquidity that does more harm than good? Well, one way it is going to correct itself is that come the next financial market wide crash, much of that money will simply vanish into thin air again. But then we will have to deal with the next nightmare - commercial banks going tits up, blown central bank loans in the trillions, and zero-interest rates, which will leave no wiggle room for lowering, which was usually one of the key measures undertaken by central banks following a downturn to give the real sector a shot in the arm. If you're already at 0.25 percent, going down to zero will have next to no effect at all. Especially not if you've still got the financial sector in the loop.

We're fucked. Plain and simple. If you thought 2007/08 was bad, you better head for the hills before the current financial bubble starts bursting. If the 2008/08 financial crisis was a mega tsunami, then the next crisis is going to be the Chicxulub asteroid.

For some value of "debate". The government will no doubt try to get that strictly limited.

Money is easily found for sophisticated weapons whose destructive power is comparable to that of the weapons of mass destruction; for submarines whose single salvo is capable of devastating half a continent; for missile defense systems that undermine strategic stability.

>Politicians and military leaders sound increasingly belligerent and defense doctrines more dangerous. Commentators and TV personalities are joining the bellicose chorus. It all looks as if the world is preparing for war.

My argument is that you're unable to write a coherent post, which you have just demonstrated for a second time. How that reflects on your ability to think in general I'll not extrapolate on.

12036 Explosion in Central Russian City
No concrete information yet, but from what I glean from google translating tweets about it Saratov Hydroelectric Power Station may have exploded.

fuck neoliberalism
fuck socialism
fuck everything but the bancor and a return to the golden age of capitalism with mixed economies, but free from America fucking it up this time. give me that or give me death.

>but she got one thing right when she said that the problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money.
She then proceed to increase government spending and tax burden as a % of GDP. Ha!

Anyway: Socialism doesn't have to be centrally planned as it was in the USSR and the rest of it. You can (in theory) have an economy of co-operatives, or otherwise use market forces to direct investment while still keeping ownership with the workers instead of with the individual. (It doesn't even have to kill small or family businesses.)

But like I said earlier, fuck socialism anyway. get KEYNES'D

NO it's much much more about a combination of SOCIALISM AND CAPITALISM because we can't we really exist properly without both. We need to succeed individually and together at the same time, as some people can and some people can't. We need to take care of the lessers and enable the performers...

She obviously meant that it's the money of the wealthy that you run out of.

It's fine if the downtrodden wage slaves run out of money. After all, they must always be reminded of their place in life.

A combination of the workers owning the means of production and capital owning the means of production?

There's an argument that part of the reason for our relative stability over the last 60 years is not chopping and changing our head of state. If Charles were to stand aside in favour of William, we'd surely get a good 40+ years without having to go through yet another expensive coronation.
