German Industrial Production Slumps For Third Month Running

Is This Why The EU Did Not Want Us To Leave?

 

Germany’s industrial base is showing consistent signs of an economic crisis amid trade tensions between the U.S. and the European Union. Output from German factories unexpectedly declined for a third consecutive month according to statistic reported by Reuters and Bloomberg.

The figures, published last Friday, showed a 1.1 percent decrease for September, missing economists’ forecast of a 0.2 percent increase. Exports from Europe’s manufacturing powerhouse fell 0.9 percent and the trade surplus, a point of contention with President Donald Trump, narrowed further.

The news came at the end of a challenging week for the Eurozone economy, with other published statistics showing fears of a trade war between western and eastern blocs denting manufacturing confidence and Germany reporting another drop in factory orders.

Berlin’s Economic Ministry blamed the apparent weakness on temporary bottlenecks related to new emission-test procedures for cars. “In light of the slow order intake but a large backlog of work, the industrial upswing should continue as the squeeze loosens,” it said in a statement, adding construction business is booming.

In the Netherlands, manufacturing production fell 0.9 percent in July, while Spanish output fell for a third time in four months. But there was better news from France, where production beat expectations by rising 0.7 percent. Separately, German labor costs rose 0.2 percent in the second quarter compared to the previous three months.

Labour Tories and media luvvieocracy Pump Up The Hate, UKIP Steamroller On

How insane are things going to get this week as the left, already incoherent with impotent rage because we the people refuse to be bullied by their screams of ‘racism’ or ‘homophobia’. And not just the left, because while Labour are likely to suffer in the former industrial heartlands of the midlands and north (so effectively deindustrialised by Tony Blair’s diastrous New Labour project after having been trashed by the depredations of the Thatcher era Conservatives) the Tories are taking a hammering in the south while everywhere the Lib Dems are gazing into the abyss.

Today, bereft of ideas, bankrupt of policies and with only screeching harridans and limp wristed eunuchs to offer in place of leaders, it seems left and right can only turn the hysteria knob up to eleven.

In both The Guardian and The Daily Telegraph we have senior writers launching irrational attacks on UKIP, trying (and failing) to twist the most innocuous casual remark into something offensive, while the Labour racist MP David Lammy once more makes outrageously racist remarks about white people and no meeja voice is raised in protest.

The problem the left have you see is they are too smug, too self regarding and too arrogant to accept that the non politicised masses are not taken in by their politically correct rhetoric. People see through the hypocrisy and double standards. And what thy see is pathetic middle class emotional cripples desperate for attention and yet so afraid of offending anyone their brains are paralyzed and all they can do is chant the latest hate meme, rather like the sheeple in the Two Minutes Hate scene from George Orwell’s 1984.

And the more they do that, the more the voters are driven away from the mainstream parties and their politically correct, pro European Integration, pro Mass Immigration consensus which is the opposite of what the people want. What a wonderful irony it will be when, through their conviction that they have a monololy on goodness and truth, they defeat themselves.

Here’s An Interesting Perspective On Whether UKIP Are Raciist – from an unexpected source:

“The Germans have taken over the EU without a shot being fired. We fought two world wars to stop that happening. We are now effectively answering to the Germans. Jews should not agree with that.

“Jews will suffer if immigration continues at this rate. We will get it in the neck the longer it goes on. People say Jews benefited from immigration but, at the maximum, there were only ever 400,000 Jews here. Now we’re talking about millions of people coming. The Jews did not alter the make-up of the whole country.

“There are a lot of Jews in the provinces who have a different world-view to people in London. I was born in Hull and I think Ukip is a demonstration against the metropolitan elite and the Westminster village. I feel disenfranchised.”

Well clearly the mouthpiece of Britain’s Jewish Community feels its the mainstream of politics that are racists. :))

Please Don’t Burn Our Shithouse Down: Boggart Blog’s Tribute to Mrs. Thatcher

A song originating from the hardships on the late 19th and early 20th centuries that we used to sing in the playground at school, not understanding the significance at the time (well we got our free milk in the 1950s).

It seemed an appropriate way to remember the havoc caused in industrial areas by the economic and business policies of Margaret Thatcher’s government.

Boggart Blog presents our tribute to Maggie Thatcher, the iron lady.
