>BERLIN — German police has described a series of sexual assaults against women in Cologne on New Year's Eve as "a completely new dimension of crime."

>Officers received numerous complaints from women who said they had been assaulted around Cologne's main train station next to the western German city's famous cathedral on the night from Thursday to Friday. Cologne police chief Wolfgang Albers says witnesses described the assaults as coming from a group of up to 1,000 men whose appearance indicated they were of "Arab or North African origin."

>Some 60 criminal complaints have so far been filed, including one allegation of rape. German news agency dpa quoted Albers telling reporters on Monday that it was "an intolerable situation that such crimes are committed in the middle of the city."

Employment being at record highs is literally meaningless. We have more people in employment in 2016 than we had in 1966 primarily because the population in 2016 is considerably greater than it was in 1966. Also bear in mind that we're still bouncing back from the recession at the start of the decade. It's like a cyclist saying their speed has reached a 10-minute high around five minutes after passing the top of the Tourmalet.

The reality is that investment in the UK was never going to go away after a vote to leave, but investors were only going to do it at a suitable price - hence the run on sterling and the collapse in share prices. If share prices reach the same level as before the referendum, that's still a real-terms loss of 15%. Apparently the pound has "surged" to $1.31. On the evening of June 23, it was at $1.48. The purchase of ARM Holdings by SoftBank was priced at £24b. That was Y3.3tr. Thanks to the vote, SoftBank have saved themselves around Y400b.

There's a legitimate argument that high employment can be a bad thing. Are people working because the economy is working for them, or are they taking any job they can get just to escape the JobCentre?

We also know that underemployment is at a record high. Is it better for a graduate to take any job they can get, or wait for an opportunity with real prospects? Is a rise in part-time, casual and zero-hours work a sign of economic success?

The social contract is about more than just work. Traditionally, jobs provided security and opportunity. Fifty years ago, a job meant being able to save, support a family and have a secure home. Today, an increasing proportion of the labour market are surviving rather than thriving. Wages have stagnated, conditions of employment are worsening, the cost of living is rising.


The sale of ARM is a sad loss for Britain. Ferranti, Plessey, ICL, all these proud names gone. I hope that Softbank tread softly on my dreams.

Well seeing as industry and business are essentially the root cause of climate change, yet bear most of the burden of limiting it, it never made much sense for Government policy to treat them in isolation from each other.

It helps that Greg Clark is most definitely not a climate change sceptic, he comes across as very passionate about the issue and I can see him keeping it near the top of his list of priorities.
His approach to limiting climate change is also very positive, his quotes in the past have been strongly in favour of promoting things which save money and create jobs in the long term. In the past decade our climate change policies have involved paying windfarms massive amounts of money to not produce electricity.

Why stop there? The department for business should amalgamate with the department for education. After all what is education if not preparing people for work? And we can roll transport into it too because people use transport to get to school and work, and let's not forget sticking the home office in the same building too, because it doesn't make any sense for ministers to be talking about jobs, education and transport without involving how many people are migrating in and out of the regions of the country to make use of them. The Treasury, environment, international trade and development, foreign office, they're all related too. In fact all these departments are related to each other, the current system makes no sense. There should just be one department. And we could call it the department for business.

>Former UK PM Tony Blair would support the US if military action was needed in Iraq, a top US official claimed in a memo written a year before the war.

>The document, written in March 2002 by ex-US Secretary of State Colin Powell to President George W Bush, has been published by the Mail on Sunday. It said: "Blair will be with us should military operations be necessary.

>The briefing note emerged after a court ruling in the US led to the publication of thousands of emails received by Hillary Clinton, who served as Secretary of State under President Obama.


>The sensational leak shows that Blair had given an unqualified pledge to sign up to the conflict a year before the invasion started.

>It flies in the face of the Prime Minister’s public claims at the time that he was seeking a diplomatic solution to the crisis. He told voters: ‘We’re not proposing military action’ – in direct contrast to what the secret email now reveals.

>The classified document also discloses that Blair agreed to act as a glorified spin doctor for the President by presenting ‘public affairs lines’ to convince a sceptical public that Saddam had Weapons of Mass Destruction – when none existed. In return, the President would flatter Blair’s ego and give the impression that Britain was not America’s poodle but an equal partner in the ‘special relationship’.

Anyone here heard of these guys? The core membres seem young, I'd estimate 18-30, and they have used imageboard culture as a means to deliver their message. Not memes as such, just their sense of humour, the graphics and editing of their videos, they use a neo-retro style for some of their graphics and text, and they use phrases straight from fuck-chuckery ForeskinChan. There's a brief BBC interview of one of their core membres, and it's the classic case of him not having parents, not willing to discuss his situation, extreme beliefs on the back of an economic downturn, and finding companionship, brotherhood, and what these people deem to be adequate answers to the problems they face, in the form of participation in political activism.

The problem here, is that their ideology is firmly grounded in conspiracy. If you read their site, they're trying to present themselves as an intelligent, organised, contemporary, sexy, dominant alternative to the other nationalist movements in the country at the moment, through their use of media, the slant they put on their articles, and their tactics. In a recent video, they claim that they had been shut down by Liverpool antifascists. So in response, on their following demonstration, they misdirected the antifascists counter-protest by announcing they were headed to Manchester, then at the last minute put the word out for their followers to get to a location in Liverpool (they refer to this as 'experimental methods', but it's apparent that simply means to chat shit so as to throw off any spies and then tell everyone what's happening as late as possible), and claimed this as a huge victory while they were largely kettled into a corner at the top of some steps outside a church or whatever it was, I've forgotten.

Even the existing right wing are denouncing them - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1RoVYOUJMcY - this chap from Liverpool who was formerly in the National Front says they are idiots, specifically, 'saddos', and that their methods are not what should be done to generate momentum for their cause.

And that's because their cause is national socialism; they are nazis and they are not hiding from it, they are proud, and on numerous occasions - there is footage of their Liverpool protest and the speaker is calling for all minorities and all of their defenders to be gassed.

In my opinion, these are a group of young, socially marginalised men, who are presenting themselves to be adept, in touch, intelligent, competent nationalists. There is some image on their website in which they ask readers to persuade baby boomers to stop watching television and use the internet. Wonderful advice, in my opinion, but clearly they are referring to part of the internet that is made up of all that 'killuminati jews did the titanic it was a goldbreg not an icebreg, 7/11 was a part time job, protect our women from the chlamydiots of ghengis khan's horde'. The kind of shit that could be misinformation, could be declassification, could be both mixed together to throw you off by mixing legit disclosure with bullshit from a shill on the CIA payroll so you question the source, it could only be pure speculation, as in - "look at these inconsistencies, the moon landings didn't happen because clearly a flag should not move like that in space despite this being the first ever journey to the money in the history of humankind but I as an unemployable nationalist am qualified to make that judgement" - the kind of speculation that is well constructed and really touches the nerve that has been bothering you for a while. And when you gather all of that stuff, and give it to a group of guys like this, guys who didn't have a loving upbringing or have been through hard times, or seen things that nobody should see, and so they want a scapegoat, this is their defence mechanism kicking in, they are fighting not flying, and they are preserving their ego and fighting for a cause that they think is not only justified, they think it is honourable.. Remembre, some of these people are intelligent, they are trying to recruit on university campuses. There is a video of James O'Briend from LBC radio that has gone viral following the murder of Jo Cox, and I think it says a lot in not so many words about this mentality (it appears to only be on Facebook):


And then there's this completely fantastic piece of poetry. Because we know all muslamic ray guns are nothing more than mindless barbarians at the gate of Rome, and we must go on our crusades to remove the threat we face in this noble year of 1216.

Scotland doesn't meet the Euro convergence criteria and probably wouldn't join ERM2 [which is also incidentally why it doesn't "have" to join the Euro. It may have to make a paper commitment to doing so, but like Sweden it could just say "ERM2 is voluntary and we don't volunteer :^) "]

Scotland has huge debts because it's assigned a population share of UK debts, not because there has been in-depth analysis of what a "fair share" based on actual spending in Scotland would be. That kind of analysis would be a nightmare.

Scotland has a large notional deficit partly due to the way it's calculated based on current policies [for a white-paper example, they are assigned something like 3bil "defence" spending even though only 2bil was actually in Scotland, or something to that extent.] and partly because of the oil price crash.

Neither are down to the policies of the SNP administration in Holyrood, however. Their funding primarily comes from a block grant. They just get to decide how it's spent. Even with the income-tax devolution [and consequentially smaller block grant] it's not really viable to alter the rates inside the UK.

Scotland meets all of the Copenhagen criteria except perhaps those on monetary union*, even though they fail the Euro convergence criteria.

*And when you look at some of the Eastern European states that got in but will probably never be allowed to use the Euro, this isn't such a big deal.

He's going to try capitalise on Labour's continued incompetence and transform his party into one that will become part of the main opposition over the coming decades.

If that sounds horrible, by the way, then just imagine how much faster it would be happening if we'd stayed in. Leaving the EU has hopefully burst the massive, stinking, pus-filled abscess that of working class resentment and disillusionment. Labour need to sit up and pay attention here.

If politicians make the right decisions over the next few years we might be on track to get a humane government in and save the country. If they make the wrong ones, we're looking down the barrel of serious civil unrest and Tory rule ad-infinitum.

I know we've got some polling enthusiasts here...
Being ahead in opinion polls - helpful or otherwise to the actual vote?
Are there any studies on this? Does the 'I wanna be on the winning side' beat 'oh god don't let those bastards win'?

plays 'We've already won, so I'm not going to bother voting'.

What I want to know is - which way should one be trying to rig polls for best effect?

Another effect I've heard for this referendum specifically is that some people will vote leave only if they think there is no chance of leave winning. So they get to feel righteous about the EU's problems without committing to the serious unknown risks of actually leaving.

The last Telegraph poll said remain was going to win the last Guardian poll said leave was going to win.

That should tell you about which way the rags think you should rig.

David Cameron says a deal struck with EU leaders will give the UK "special status" and he will campaign with his "heart and soul" to stay in the union.

The agreement, reached late on Friday after two days of talks in Brussels, gives the UK power to limit some EU migrants' benefits. It also includes a treaty change so the UK is not bound to "ever closer union" with other EU member states, he said.EU exit campaigners said the "hollow" deal offered only "very minor changes".

The agreement on renegotiating the UK's EU membership was announced by European Council president Donald Tusk, who tweeted: "Deal. Unanimous support for new settlement for #UKinEU." It paves the way for the UK to hold an in/out referendum on EU membership, which has been promised by the end of 2017 but is expected in June this year.


That's the negotiations out of the way, then. Now the fear mongering on both sides will kick into overdrive.

>Nige has unconceded.

Can someone explain to me what was going through his head when he conceded so early?

Apparently he's clarified his position. He thinks that Remain might have it but isn't conceding anything.

The tweet was after 10PM so it's not like it makes any difference what he said. We just have to wait out the counting process now.

Saville is crying foul over the registration deadline extension. Allowing people to vote is apparently a subversion of democracy.

Even Carswell called him out on that bollocks.

Saville has a real genius for framing the political debate to suit his own ends. He is well aware that a loss in this referendum could be a career ending outcome. By playing down his chances as soon as the polls close, he improves the strength of his position after the result. If he wins, he defied the odds to beat the establishment; if he loses, he's the plucky underdog who was magnanimous in defeat.
