Who the hell does Hammond think he is?

In one episode of Nero Wolfe, he was telling the inspector what the latter could and could not do, prompting a financier who was present to explode: “Who the hell does this guy think he is?”

One could say the same about Hammond:

“I don’t believe we should be in the business of making potentially nugatory expenditure until the very last moment when we need to do so.”

If this were fiscally responsible, then fine, the Chancellor is doing as he should. However, that’s not the context, is it?

His boss has indicated that she would be ready with the readies for the No Deal – his refusal was a sackable offence in days gone by.  And how come he followed on from the useless Osborne, who followed on from the useless Darling?  Why has no one competent been appointed?  And it’s not only here – there’s the useless Yellen in the US.

The game of course is that all the real decisions are taken by the BofE who take orders from Tavistock, otherwise known as Chatham House, Bilderberg, the BIS et al. Hammond is their man, May the puppet leader.

Hammond, like Boris, is unsackable, just as Osborne was.

Needless to say, this is not what the people of this land voted in. At least it is … but they didn’t know what they were voting in. Should have guessed though.


# 1922 Committee, do your job. Go see May – tell her sack Hammond, Rudd and Green or prepare for Leadership change.

# He needs to be fired. It has been obvious from the off that a no deal scenario is possible. Not to have a contingency plan for it is either gross stupidity or deliberate obstruction. Most likely the latter.

My take? May and Hammond are sitting tight as they know there’s an engineered crash coming – they can’t do anything until that happens and then there are a set of prescribed reactions they’ll have. At local level [UK], of course they’d prefer Corbyn in charge now to carry the can but at European and global level the agenda is waiting to play out.

For all her utter incompetence, she must know what is being said, even at Guido’s place – Tories do go there. She is so bad, so incompetent that it can only be by design, not by inability to get out of her own way.

    The unreadiness is down to hubris. Cameron pushed the referendum out to silence his party. He didn’t care about the result because he assumed he would win. In thinking he would win he didn’t bother planning for anything with the CS.

    The civil service won’t do anything until it is kicked, repeatedly to do so, and then it operates sluggishly, with utter disinterest. Chances are the delay is coming from there. A complete lack of planning, a total disinterest in the activity, the arrogance of expectation just shows how utterly comtemptuous the state is of the people and then Cameron resigned. Frankly he should have been made to stay on to carry out our orders but he ran for it.

    The state does not want to leave the EU. They’re inept, for goodness sake. Much easier to just rubber stamp endless reams of paper and gradually sink into poverty because this is good for the political class. Stuff the people, it’s all about power. Getting it, keeping it.

    In any competent negotiation right now, the UK should simply tell the EU that we are suspending negotiations and planning for ‘No Deal’ from March 2019, furthermore we are immediately commencing trade-talks with all non-EU nations.
    If they want to change that situation, the EU can come back with some sensible proposals by the end of December.
    Then let the German, French and Italian exporters apply the necessary pressure to make it happen – and they would, because they’ve got it all to lose.

    Without that, it won’t happen and we’ll be shafted in more ways than Harvey Weinstein ever imagined in his most fevered moments.

    The danger, it seems to me, is that if some sort of crash comes, May being hopeless, there might be a kneejerk reaction from the people and Corbyn completes his miracle from hell.

    The people understood it, however bad it may or may not be, the action was undersigned by 17.4 million people and by all accounts those wanting the government to get on with it – Leaving the EU has grown to ~74%.

    However, we are in no mans land and no exit on the horizon.

    As you say, we might get corbyn, his immiseration and band of bloodthirsty red loons to boot but only because once again the tories failed the people about and concerning the German run Brussels administered federal superstate. What else could be expected of the party of the EU – tories through and through.

    Clearly, the machinery of State are dragging their feet, why would they not, the easy life is Brussels stamped and guaranteed no decisions to make, but OUT means they’ll will have to work for a living.
    Banksters and the corporate blob have the ear of most of the divs in the Treasury/BoE – the very last thing they want is LEAVE and Britain out of the Mafia circle and open door immigration.

    Theresa May in all of her duplicitous ways, a behind the scenes arch shit stirrer outwardly a retiring violet pretense, has never, is utterly incapable of summoning the necessary resolve to make such a momentous deliverance and deliverance it is – OUT. AND that’s why she got the job because the EUphiliac twats who run the tory swamp, knew it and are mocking, laughing at the ‘us’ the proles, laughing and jeering.

    For all his faults Boris knows this but can’t quite bring himself to sever the umbilical and parasitic ties which attach him to the establishment.

    And the cabinet……
    what a shower of shit they all are.
