I reckon Wall Street has #occupy -ed the UK and most of The World.

Let me, once more, recommend Naomi Klein’s  book “The Shock Doctrine”.

After reading it, bear in mind that the Chicago school of economics has provided the lecturer’s for most University Economics courses and that most of our political leaders did PPE degree’s at Oxford (Including Dave, Ed and George) and/or worked for one of the major non-tax paying international banks such as Goldmann-Sachs (main vote on City of London) and you wonder if we have any chance of avoiding a World dictatorship.

Recently a law was passed so it’s now illegal to organise any protest, which can be construed as favouring one political party over another i.e. if politicians choose not to debate the NHS or EU, then it won’t be an issue in the General election News coverage.

No party (apart from UKIP, so it won’t happen) has to promise to allow a referendum on membership of EU.

The USA has signed trade deals with the EU and with an Australasian bloc to have a level trading field.

The significance of that is that if Labour get in, then they can claim that they can not reverse the privatisation of the NHS, which will be effectively downgraded to the USA’s very weak Obamacare.

@Number10gov Whilst Tories are want to privatise the NHS on the U.S. model, Obamacare is taking The USA in the opposite direction i.e. “Gov’t FOR the people”

This is a piece from Fullermoney, giving cause to hope that Obamacare is going to make it, showing that the U.S.A. has finally picked up the notion it’s not just Government of the people, by the people. It’s also Government FOR the people.

Our Gov’t (UK) has always had a Government of the masses, by the right sort of people for their own ends.  It was only the fear of Communism that forced the 1% to allow a Government that was of, by and for the people.

Since Glasnost, They have been trying to restore the situation prevalent in Victorian England and Bush’s America.

Maybe Obamacare will give them pause for thought.

 From Fullermoney:

Who is going to win the presidential election?

 You might want to ask Mark T. Bertolini. He just bet $5.7 billion on President Obama.

 Mr. Bertolini is the chief executive of Aetna, which on Monday agreed to acquireCoventry Health Care, a huge provider of Medicare and Medicaid programs. His $5.7 billion bet makes a lot of sense if you believe that the Affordable Care Act – otherwise known as Obamacare – will not be repealed.

 Mitt Romney has pledged to repeal the act “on my first day if elected,” so any gamble that Obamacare stays intact could be fairly described as a wager that President Obama will remain in office…………………

Mr. Bertolini of Aetna insisted on Monday that the deal was not dependent on who wins the White House. But he has to say that. If he believed Mr. Romney was going to win and he still wanted to buy Coventry, he would have waited until after the election and bought it at a sharp discount.
