Doomwatch 30 - Roger Hayes - The Lawful Bank

Doomwatch 30 - Roger Hayes - The Lawful Bank

Friday 20 June 2014, 6.00pm-8.00pm UK on Peterborough FM - You are invited to join host alex:g, Special Guest Text Jockey Daisy Jones, and Voice of the Visuals Tom Mutiny for the 30th edition of DOOMWATCH - our guest will be ROGER HAYES of The Lawful Bank.

Roger has had a lifelong interest in the politics of banking and the international monetary system. In the past decade has worked in a voluntary capacity to inform and educate others as to how the banking system is, in reality, nothing more than a gigantic Ponzi scheme, sponsored by a political elite with vested interests, and underpinned with taxpayers' money.

He will be discussing with us a new initiative, centred on 'Bankster Mortgage Fraud.'

Roger Hayes – Open letter to Cameron and Osborne

Jihadists planning UK attacks, warns David Cameron

Jihadists fighting in Iraq and Syria are planning attacks on British soil, David Cameron has said. The Prime Minister warned that the current crisis in Iraq must not be dismissed as a foreign problem because the same fighters are planning to “attack us here at home in the United Kingdom”. He made his intervention amid growing concern over the number of Britons leaving the UK to fight alongside extremist groups abroad.

On Wednesday night the Iraqi government formally asked the US to launch air strikes against militants, many of whom have poured into the country from Syria.  US military commander Gen Martin Dempsey told US senators: “We have a request from the Iraqi government for air power.”

In a separate development on Wednesday several people in Mpeketoni, northern Kenya, which was attacked by as many as 40 Islamist gunmen on Sunday, told the Telegraph that the gang’s leader was pale-skinned and spoke English and Arabic. “I saw a white man who was speaking in fluent British English commanding the rest of the attackers,” said one.

Free owls for all! Labour unveils accidental new policy sending Westminster into a flap over £5billion bird give-away

It was the policy announcement that really ruffled feathers among Labour’s 47,000 Twitter followers. After a prankster managed to hack into the party press team’s Twitter account yesterday, it seemed that Ed Miliband had come up with his most revolutionary policy so far. ‘Everybody should have his own owl,’ said the tweet that quickly took flight on social media.

The political blogger GuidoFawkes tweeted: ‘For more  information about the Labour owl policy, contact their press office on 28 28 20.’ Other internet posters put up mock images of Mr Miliband with  owls, including one that was  pasted on to the picture of him struggling with a bacon sandwich last month.

More serious-minded observers pointed out that it would be a policy unlikely to find support at the Treasury, as baby barn owls cost around £80 each. To provide one for all 63million people in the country would cost a barnstorming £5billion a year, or around 5 per cent of the entire budget for the NHS.

We will rue the day our naive leaders recklessly gave control of the economy to a ruthless Chinese regime

Stephen Glover (co-founder of The Independent): An agreement was reached on Tuesday which is likely to affect the lives of our children and grandchildren, and could shape the future of this country. Yet it was scarcely reported by the BBC, and entirely ignored by several newspapers. It was confirmed at the start of a visit here by China’s premier, Li Keqiang, that his country will be allowed to design, own and operate a new generation of nuclear power stations in Britain, subject to unspecified safeguards.

That’s right — an authoritarian regime that imprisons thousands of its citizens without trial, and imposes draconian censorship, will supply much of our power, and have inside knowledge of how our infrastructure works, in particular the national grid. Such knowledge could theoretically enable a future Chinese government to blackmail a British government. Unless you do what we want, Britain might one day be told, we will shut down your electricity supplies.

Be ready for interest rate rises, Bank of England insider warns mortgage payers

Ian McCafferty, one of the four external members of Threadneedle Street's monetary policy committee, said on Thursday that the exact timing of a rate rise remained uncertain, but the Bank wanted to ensure that the many borrowers who have become used to more than five years of official interest rates at 0.5% were not taken by surprise.

In an interview with the Guardian, McCafferty said the economy had beaten the Bank's forecasts so far this year and the survey evidence pointed to further robust expansion ahead. "There is momentum in the pace of growth, and it looks like it will continue over the rest of the summer," he said. "Overall, the economy has come a long way in the last 12 to 18 months." He said the Bank had felt it right to point out the risks that borrowing costs might rise sooner than expected because the City had not responded to the signs that the recovery was continuing to gather pace. "There didn't seem to be any material shift in expectations about what we might do," the MPC member said.

"Were we to have to go early – and that will depend on how the economy performs over the summer and autumn – I think it would have been damaging if it was portrayed as a surprise. It appeared the markets were more certain of the date of lift-off [for rates] than we were."

Up until last week, the City had been preparing for an interest rate rise in early 2015, but comments by the governor, Mark Carney, McCafferty and fellow MPC member Martin Weale have shortened the odds on a move this year. Sterling climbed to a near six-year high against the US dollar on Thursday as it looked increasingly likely that the UK would take the lead on raising interest rates. The pound rose by a cent as it pushed above the $1.70 mark, reaching levels not seen since October 2008. The CBI warned that the hgher pound could damage exporters.

Bank 'will not hesitate' to cool UK housing boom says Mark Carney

On the day official data showed the average UK house price is ten times bigger than the average salary, the Governor of the Bank of England used the Bank's annual report to highlight the steps it had already taken to prevent people from taking out unaffordable mortgages. Mr Carney said the Bank was prepared to use its so-called macro-prudential toolkit to support these steps.

"In November, the Bank’s Financial Policy Committee (FPC) announced initiatives to reduce the stimulus being provided by the authorities to the housing market," Mr Carney wrote in the foreword of the report. "We will not hesitate to take further proportionate and graduated action as warranted. That will allow monetary policy to remain focused on providing the stimulus the economy needs for as long as it is needed to secure a strong, sustained recovery."

The FPC, which is in charge of financial stability, met on Tuesday to decide if more action was required to prevent another housing bubble. The FPC, led by Mr Carney, will outline any new measures at next Thursday's Financial Stability Report. Mr Carney continued to prepare the ground for gradual interest rate rises by highlighting the risk of keeping the base rate at a record low of 0.5pc for too long. "We are fully aware that the environment of low and predictable interest rates necessary to nurture the recovery could encourage excessive risk taking in financial markets and by households," he said.

Homeowners quietly stripped of vital protection against unscrupulous doorstep sellers under new EU laws

From this week, householders who are talked into buying double glazing or conservatories by door-to-door traders have lost their right to cancel if they get cold feet. The revelation has sparked outrage among consumer groups who fear vulnerable people given the hard sell will be unable to escape from rip-off deals.

The new law, known as the European Consumer Rights Directive, was brought into force last Friday. In many respects, it is an improvement on the previous rules. This is because it extends the time buyers have to cancel things bought over the phone, internet or from doorstep traders from seven to 14 days.  But a little-known loophole has dramatically weakened the protection of consumers who buy goods especially made for them — such as conservatories, double glazing, patios and window blinds — from doorstep traders.

Previously, customers who ordered these kinds of items from door-to-door salesmen would be given seven calendar days to cancel after signing the contract if they got cold feet. But since last Friday this vital protection has been scrapped — though those who buy items that are not bespoke now have 14 days to stop their deals. Angry experts warn the seven-day cooling-off period was vital protection for vulnerable householders who are routinely targeted by hard-selling cold callers flogging such items.

They fear that the most unscrupulous traders may try to exploit the loophole by arguing that goods have been made especially for a buyer, even though they are not bespoke.

Parish councillors banned from talking to local journalists under ‘Stalinist’ new rules

Local authority chiefs are under fire from the Government over a “stalinist” attempt to stop councillors speaking to journalists without permission. They are urging parish and town councils to instruct councillors they need to obtain written approval before contacting the press or responding to reporters’ questions.

The controversial guidance has been sent out by the National Association of Local Councils (NALC), which represents around 9,000 parish, town and community councils in England and Wales. Eric Pickles, the Local Government Secretary, has demanded the withdrawal of a policy which would effectively impose a gag on nearly 100,000 councillors.

Under the NALC’s “media policy”, authorities are recommended to:

  • Tell journalists they cannot contact councillors without permission from the council clerk
  • Instruct councillors they need “prior written consent” before agreeing to a media interview
  • Warn councillors they cannot express personal opinions other than “the views they hold in their official capacity”

The councils, which represent the first tier of local Government, are being asked to adopt the guidelines into their constitution, meaning councillors who refuse to comply could be disciplined. The NALC tells them that council business may be reported by the press without prior warning to the authority. But it adds: “It is sensible for a council to have a policy to regulate its proactive or reactive communications with the media.”

Several authorities are understood to have already adopted the guidelines.

Tourism minister Helen Grant's solution to the passport fiasco? Stay here

Helen Grant risked the wrath of people caught up in the passports fiasco by suggesting they consider staying in Britain. Miss Grant said she was “confident” that a backlog of up to 30,000 applications would be cleared in time for families to go away. But she added that there was a “lot to be said for the 'staycation’ ”. Earlier this week, Theresa May, the Home Secretary, apologised to people whose travel plans had been disrupted.

HM Passport Office said it had been dealing with the highest demand in 12 years, with the summer surge in applications starting earlier than usual. The Passport Office was processing 200,000 more passports than this time last year, said a senior civil servant. In an interview with House magazine, Miss Grant, a Conservative MP, said: “I’m very confident that people will get their passports. But if they don’t want to go away, we have some fantastic places to visit and holiday not that far from here. I think there’s a lot to be said for the 'staycation’.”

Miss Grant is currently at the World Cup in Brazil in her other capacity as sports minister.

Russia in secret plot against fracking, Nato chief says

Speaking at the Chatham House foreign affairs think-tank in London, Anders Fogh Rasmussen said Russia was mounting a sophisticated disinformation campaign aimed at undermining attempts to exploit alternative energy sources such as shale gas.  He said: "I have met allies who can report that Russia, as part of their sophisticated information and disinformation operations, engaged actively with so-called non-governmental organisations - environmental organisations working against shale gas - to maintain European dependence on imported Russian gas. That is my interpretation."

Mr Rasmussen did not say what form the Russians' engagement with the environmentalists took or whether groups concerned were aware that they were dealing with Moscow's agents.
