German Economy Slumps, Key Indicators Fall, Underlines Eurozone Economic Decline

With zero growth in the German economy over the final quarter of 2019 as manufacturing remained in a slump and exports fell, the wisdom of Britain’s middle and working class voters choice to leave the failing European Union was vindicated again. The German figures highlight the many challenges facing the Eurozone, which is hamstrung because it consists of 19 different economies (eith of them economic basket cases,) all needing very different solutions.

German’s state statistics agency reported today there was zero growth in the fourth quarter and a mediocre 0.6 percent increase for the whole year. And that paltry figure has only been achieved with the help of financial jiggery pokery from the European Central Bank (ECB)

Germany´s troubles are central to the economic difficulties of the 19-country eurozone economy and the European Central Bank, which has for several years been trying mask the reality of flagging growth and inflation with negative interest rates and newly printed money. Germany has been a manufacturing and export powerhouse in recent years and has propped up the rest of the sigle currency zone, but with German manufacturing in the doldrums and exports rendered uncompetitive due to increased costs imposed by ineffective and pointless “green” policies imposed on member states by Brussels, those areas have been sluggish and only debt funded consumer spending has kept the country out of recession. But debt funded spending is only ever a short term solution.

Carsten Brzeski, chief economist at ING Germany, told a German Financial Newspaper, “In general, the German economy remains stuck between solid private consumption and a paralyzed manufacturing sector.”

Slowing global trade and the uncertainty caused by the U.S.-China conflict over trade have been one problem. Another is structural change in industry, particularly the auto business, where companies must sink billions into developing electric cars and new services based on smartphone apps, both to meet regulatory pressure for lower greenhouse gas emissions and to head off competition from from the tech sector.

Brexit has terrified ‘Brussels bubble’ – German insider

The EU elite “lost faith in their own appeal and abilities” following the Brexit referendum vote and the surge in support for nationalist parties.

German car industry faces ‘existential threat’ from political attack and electric vehicles

Germany’s car manufacturers face an existential crisis and risk going the way of Britain’s once-mighty car industry within ten years, Volkswagen has warned in the grimmest assessment to date.

Herbert Diess, the company’s chief executive, said Germany is not ready for the revolutionary effects of the electric vehicle and is under political assault from those challenging the whole concept of car ownership and mobility.

He told VW suppliers gathered in Wolfsburg – the sanctum sanctorum of German auto preeminence – that the sector is under a competitive threat of the first order and must embrace root-and-branch reform to survive. “Nothing is guaranteed for eternity,” he said.

“If you look at the former bastions of the auto industry such as Detroit, Oxford-Cowley, or Turin, you can see what happens to cities once their dominant companies and industries falter,” he said.

“As things stand today, the chances are perhaps 50:50 that the German car industry will remain at the pinnacle of the world in ten years,” he said.

IoT gadget maker Nest Labs adding Google facial recognition to doorbell web enabled doorbell, Google will know who’s at home.

Internet of Things - your gadgets will spy on you
Image source: http://www.industriaitaliana.it

Long before Google acquired Internet of Things company Nest, its co-founder Matt Rogers was saying he and his team had big dreams. They certainly did, knowing perhaps how the CIA had made Google and Facebook into giant global corporations because of the potential for spying on people through their computers, Nest seem to have convinced themselves that building fridges, washing machines, thermostats and doorbells that could spy on their owners might work the same trick for them.

“When Nest was founded seven years ago, we started with a thermostat,” Rogers told a room full of reporters in an event held at San Francisco’s Contemporary Jewish Museum. “But our mission has always been much greater. Our mission is to create a home that takes care of the people inside it and the world around it.”

CUNT. Does he not realise plenty of us understand what he is really saying, i.e. Nest, with their partners want to build a world in which our homes, possessions and our environment all conspire with the ruling elites to control us.

So after making a smart thermostat, (well, one that grasses you up to big Brother if you turn your heating up higher than someone on your paygrade should,) smoke alarms that will tell your doctor is you were cooking unhealthy food, and security cameras that tell Google (and any of us that can hack a server, which is more people than you might think,) exactly who is at home at any given time, Nest revealed the next place it wants to make waves: the home alarm system.

“Can you think of a better industry for us to disrupt?” product marketing head Maximie Veron asked the crowd.

That disruption will be stepped up in November, when the latest spy product, a $500 home alarm system you can install yourself, is brought to market. Nest Secure is built to work with your smartphone (and if that doesn’t ring alarm bells nothing will,), and with all the other Nest products the company hopes you’ll buy to help your best friends, the government, control you. And some people, some university brainwashed people, will rush out and buy this crap thinking it is ‘cool’.

Nest Secure product manager Sophie Le Guen explained the focus was on making a confusing product into a friendly one. About as friendly as a hungry crocodile.

Brexit-supporting Fishermen Worried May Will Sell Them out After ‘30 Years of Torment

British fishermen fear Theresa the Appeaser May will sell out their industry to the EU, as Brussels negotiator Michel Barnier courts their European rivals in Denmark. It is outrageous, but typical of the Euronazis approach to negotiations that Brussels is making promises to EU member states about what they will be allowed to do in british territorial waters.

Fishing for Leave, the grassroots fishing industry campaign for Brexit responsible for organising the seaborne protest which turned into the (in)famous Battle of the Thames (the Stirrers’ favourite moment in the whole referendum campaign), expressed their concerns after the Remain-supporting closet Europhile prime minister signalled fishing would form part of Britain’s “economic partnership” with the European Union. Which means the Brussels bureaurats with control the British fishing industry.

The lion’s share of Western Europe’s fish are in British territorial waters, but EU member-states are required to surrender control over their fishing — like their trade agreements, to Brussels, which has resulted in a massive overfishing of our waters and the introduction of highly destructive technology which damages vital breeding grounds, as British stocks have been doled out to other EU member-states.

May’s talk of reduced “fishing effort” is a euphemism for massive job losses, scrapping of trawlers and closure of fishing ports, with the British fleet declining by more than half since accession to the European Union, then called the European Economic Community, in the 1970s, accompanied by over 100,000 job losses at sea and in related industries onshore.

The Tory government of the late Edward ‘the grocer’ Heath, which took Britain into the EEC, was well aware of the impact it would have on British fishermen, with a Scotland Office memo released years after entry revealing that the government had decided that “in the wider context they must be regarded as expendable”. Expendable for what gain you might well ask. Well as it turned out, for the privilege of being allowed to turn our great nation into a province of Greater Germany.

George Eustice, the government minister responsible for fishing, recently admitted that in the years 2012 to 2016, on average, each year, the EU fleet took 760,000 tonnes of fish from UK waters. In the same period, the average annual take of the UK fleet from EU waters was 90,000 tonnes, a clearly unbalanced situation, which Fishing for Leave believes is depriving British coastal communities of some £6 billion in annual revenue. but to the globalists of the political, academic and wealthy elites, British people do not matter, the goal for these shits is to make sure they get their souts in the trough when the hoped for global government is implemented.

Theresa May has said she intends to leave the EU’s Common Fisheries Policy (CFP), but fishermen do not believe her, they have heard such promises before from both Conservative and Labour governments and remain concerned that their industry will continue to decline if included in the so-called ‘transition period’ after March 2019. They also fear that the final brexit deal may end up retaining most of the regulatory provisions that have destroyed british fishing.

UK ‘complicit in Yemen’s destruction’ – activist attacks government on eve of Saudi visit (VIDEO)

The UK’s arms for oil deals with Saudi Arabia make it “utterly complicit in the destruction of Yemen,” Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT) activist Andrew Smith, speaking on RT’s Going Underground said. The government has committed to billions of pounds worth of arms deals with Saudi Arabia, one of the UK armaments industry’s largest customers. The Islamic fundamentalist kingdom is driving the coalition waging an air-and-sea campaign against Houthi forces in Yemen. The fighting has led to 10,000 deaths and left millions more in need of humanitarian aid as supplies of food, pure water and medical supplies cannon reach the beleaguered nation.

The UK/Saudi relationship is such that the kingdom’s Crown Prince and effective ruler Mohammad bin Salman will visit the UK on March 7. Bin Salman’s visit is expected to be the precursor for further UK-Saudi arms deals. The Prince will be entertained by members of the British Royal Family at Windsor Castle.

CAAT is one of several groups organizing protests against visit. In the interview with Afshin Rattansi, Smith attacked the UK government and foreign secretary for hypocrisy, stating: “Even Boris Johnson has called it [Yemen] the worst humanitarian crisis in the world, yet it’s a humanitarian crisis caused in part by weapons licensed by Boris Johnson and his colleague.

That condemnation may embarrass the government as the UK stands accused of concealing the extent of its support for Saudi Arabia’s bombing of Yemen. A significant increase in the number of arms-export licenses from the UK to Saudi Arabia has been revealed by the Middle East Eye.

Since 2015 and the start of the war in Yemen, the UK has reportedly used standard arms licenses to sign off on over $6.4 billion of arms deals to Saudi Arabia. The deals have included fighter jets and munitions.

Opposite of Transparency: Germany’s TTIP Room ‘Smacks of Totalitarianism’

Nothing in TTIP for small businesses says German Left Party MP Katia Kipping

With concerns over the controversial TTIP trade deal between the EU and US, a select number of German MPs have been granted limited access to view the agreement in its current form. Despite this initiative, lawmaker Katja Kipping has raised serious concerns about the transparency of the deal.

While some have promoted the TTIP reading room as a win for transparency, Katja Kipping from Germany’s Left Party, has shared the many restrictions placed on lawmakers hoping to gain a better grasp of the finer deals of the deal.

In the plan, announced by German Vice-Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel, MPs must register to access the reading room and are only allowed to spend two hours reading the documents, while mobile phones and other electronic devices must be stored away in a secure locker.

The TTIP document is available on a computer screen that isn’t connected to the Internet, and while lawmakers can make notes, they cannot copy any quotes from the consolidated texts and they cannot share the details of the agreement in public or in parliament.

“Even the registration procedure for the reading room speaks volumes. Once I’d registered, I was sent the instructions on how to use the room,” Kipping wrote in a review of her reading room experience.

“The first thing that I noticed was that the terms and conditions had already been the subject of negotiations between the European Commission and the USA. Get your head round that: TTIP isn’t even signed yet, and already individual countries have lost the right to decide who gets to read the texts, and on what terms.”

MPs Not Allowed Expert Assistance

Kipping also took exception to an MPs’ rulebook that stated being granted access to the texts was an example of “an exceptional degree of trust.”

“Now I’d always thought that elected MPs have a right to information. Yet the TTIP negotiators (and who gave them their legitimacy?) reckon they are GRANTING us access out of the goodness of their hearts. Access as a sign of exceptional trust. Whoever wrote that — did they really think that we MPs would feel flattered? To me it smacks more of totalitarianism. ‘Granting access’ and ‘extending trust’ is not the language you use if you really believe in democracy.”

To make the complexities of the deal more difficult, Kipping said MPs weren’t allowed to bring in experts help deconstruct the technical jargon associated with the text, which was supplied in English only.

“We are not even allowed to take security-cleared specialists with us into the reading room. As for members of the public, who will ultimately have to bear the brunt of TTIP, they are to have no access whatsoever to the secret text. Not what transparency looks like in my book,” she wrote.

Kipping: Viewing Documents Didn’t Change my Mind

Proponents of the TTIP say that member states will experience an economic boost and increased trade, while many small and medium-sized businesses would greatly benefit from the agreement, which aims to slash trade barriers between the US and EU.

TTIP document leak – A preview of the corporate fascism treaty from War On Want

TISA – If you Hated Undemocratic TTIP You’ll Loathe This

Secret WTO Service Industry Trade Deal Leaked – Threatens Internet Freedom, E – Commerce, Free Speech

Yog-Sothoth knows the gate. Yog-Sothoth is the gate. Yog-Sothoth is the key and guardian of the gate. Past, present, future, all are one in Yog-Sothoth. He knows where the Old Ones broke through of old, and where They shall break through again. - H P Lovecraft
TISA – The Monster That Will Eat The World (actally this in not TISA but Yog – Sothoth, very similar though.) (Source)

This web page and its links to many posts around the internet has mainly focused on the Trans Atlantic Trade And Investment Treaty (TTIP), an allegedly benign deal to promote free trade between the USA and EU, and its equally evil twin the Trans Pacific Partnership, which proposes the same for the Pacific Trading Area. In reality what both these treaties do is further the global hegemony that US Corporate business and the US Government have been collaborating to achieve since the fall of the Soviet Union. Read much more about these deals and how they will hit small business, individual freedoms and curtail the right of sovereign nations to make their own fair trade, consumer protection, labour relations and civil rights law.elsewhere on the page.

This story is about another nasty deal corporate business has been cooking up with Washington and The United Nations and with the full complicity of mainstream media, the Yog Sothoth of trade deals in fact.

Governments of nations around the world have for two years been secretly negotiating a little-known mega trade deal that poses a threat to internet freedoms and will serve only corporate interests, analysts have warned, citing a U.S. proposal leaked by a whistleblower.

The Trade in Services Agreement (TISA), currently being negotiated in conditions of the highest secrecy between a 50-country committee of World Trade Organization (WTO) members. Negotiations have been in progress for nearly two years, but have been so secretive that it was unheard of in the public domain until the news was published by Wikileaks in June 2014, making it even more shadowy than the Trans Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership and the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).

The given reason for the public being kept in the dark about this deal is that ordinary people will not understand it, in fact there is nothing complicated about the fact that internet freedom will disappear as governments take control of all online activity. The freedoms citizens in democracies have enjoyed will simply disappear, free speech, free (as in unrestricted by law if you can afford to buy a newspaper or rent an internet connection will be massively impacted if we the people this undemocractic treaty to be pushed through by the people who have for decades now been advocating global totalitarian government.

“What these closed-door negotiations do is cement in place rules for global governance—rules that affect a whole host of issues that aren’t about trade at all, such as privacy, financial stability and much more,” Melinda St. Louis, International Campaigns Director for Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch, told Common Dreams:

“There is extreme industry influence in this closed-door trade negotiation process. On the U.S. side there are more than 500 corporate advisers who have access to these texts while the public and many elected officials are locked out.” (our emphasis)

Despite the leaks little is known about the content of the TISA treaty and what reached the public domain has done so through leaks (see above). one of the most disconcerting clauses revealed in the leaked draft shows that negotiators aim to further deregulate global financial markets.

Among subsequent leaks is information that shows negotiators are aiming to curtail internet freedoms.

TISA’s clauses on “E-Commerce, Technology Transfer, Cross-border Data Flows and Net Neutrality,” proposed by the U.S. Trade Representative in April, was published on 17 December, 2014 by Associated Whistleblowing Press, a non-profit organization with bases in Iceland and Spain.

According to an analysis of the text from watchdog organization Public Citizen:

With respect to privacy protections, the leaked text reveals that the U.S. negotiators are pushing for new corporate rights for unrestricted cross-border data flows and prohibitions on requirements to hold and process data locally, thus removing governments’ ability to ensure that private and sensitive personal data is stored and processed only in jurisdictions that ensure privacy.

Such measures are considered critical to ensuring that medical, financial and other data provided protection by U.S. law are not made public when sent offshore for processing and storage, with no legal recourse for affected individuals. Numerous U.S. organizations are pushing for improvements in such policies, which are considerably stronger in other countries. If the proposed TISA terms on free data movement were to become binding on the United States, such needed progress would be foreclosed.

Lori Wallach, director of Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch, declared: “Given the raging domestic debate over net neutrality,(mainly a USA problem, the Obama administration has been sucking up to corporate money, the EU has done much better at preserving internet freedom – editor) the growing demands for more data privacy and the constantly changing technology, a pact negotiated in secret that is not subject to changes absent consensus of all signatories seems like a very bad place to be setting U.S. Internet governance policies.”

In the future your f*** – buddy will be a Robot.

The Sydney Morning Herald ran a report last week which claims that in the not too distant future not only will sex robots eliminate real women in the sex industry but buying a robot fuck – buddy will also be a good way for nerds to find love.

Although the idea of animatronic prostitutes has been around since The Stepford Wives first screened the technology to create a simulated human for purposes of sexual gratification and companionship is stepping up as scientists get more fanatical in their efforts to completely dehumanise us.

The author of the sex robot article posits the benefits of such a creation, namely providing guilt-free sexual encounters and preventing diseases like herpes all the way up to HIV. That’s as may be but what is life without risk. And what red blooded man would want to boff a dead eyed, unthinking automation. The nature of the people who are enthusdiastic about sex robots becomes obvious when you consider there is never any talk of shagdroids that ladies can avail themselves of.

sex robotDon’t fancy yours – a sex robot

This particular field of human endeavour is the preserve of pointy eared tech heads with personal hygiene issues and dysfunctional personalities.

The editorial piece in the Sydney Morning Herald takes the theme one step further and makes the claim that a sex robot will one day ensure everyone will find the perfect mate.

What’s the basis for this idea?

According to SMH, “Many of our social interactions have been reduced to the barebones transfer of information via various online media: text messages, emails, shared videos and pictures, status updates, and, (no kidding) , pokes.”

Many people in advanced societies are already finding their social lives degraded social because conversation is being relegated short, impersonal exchanges in the void of cyberspace. If this trend continues future generation will all be nerds spending their lives in isolation, hunched over a computer.

In such a situation the needs of people who have little interest in more meaningful, stimulating and old-fashioned personal relationships will be answered perfectly by androids designed and programmed to be constantly ready for sex yet totally passive at other times.

That makes it a scary future but Boggart Blog has a better solution. We simply have to gather all the nerds together and KILL THEM.

Tumbleweed City West Midlands

Mainstream media are getting their knickers in a twist this morning over gloomy reports from the retail industry. Predictions of “The death of the High Street” abound.

More Closures Likely In Retail Sector:The festive period has been a gloomy one with Barratts Priceless axing over 1,600 jobs and La Senza and D2 Jeans going into administration. Industry leaders have warned that mass discounting failed to kickstart a recovery … The Guardian

High Street Retailers Being Squeezed To Extinction : More shops will collapse into administration or announce store closures in the next couple of weeks, afters suffering from “profits squeezed to extinction” as well as a fall in sales over Christmas, according to the head of Britain’s retail trade body … Daily Telegraph

All in all it conjures up images of desterted town centre streets lined with derelict and decaying shops. A howling wind stirs up dust devils and drives a few ominoius looking tumbleweeds. Somewhere, some unseen creature whistles eerily, wooo – oo – oo – oo – ooo – wooo – oo – ooo and a distant, lone Church bell tolls a funereal rhythm.

How can Boggart Blog predict the furure in such detail?

Well Accrington town centre has been like that for twenty years.

Big Brown Bag O’ Shite

Last week I posted an article to remind you all what a bag o’ shite Tony Blair is. The purpose was to make sure the truth is out there as Blair tries to reinvent himself as The World’s Greatest Catholic. The responses to the post included along with the usual witty banter from regular readers some outraged whines from fans of Tony Blair. These sad little people were, with one honourable exception, they are the type who create an e-mail address solely to comment in one thread so their comments have no value at all. But I would not want the nerds to think they are not appreciated. You see, being nerds they just couldn’t let things lie, they had to try to impose their views on Boggart Blog. This meant we got a bumper crop of comments which kept the thread attracting traffic for several days.

Let’s see if we can pull off the same trick with Gordon Brown who has been nominated this week’s bog o’shite of the week. Why has he been awarded that title you might well ask? It is because he continues to believe we are all too stupid to know that when he talks of green shoots of recovery he is just trying to get us spending insanely again.

Brown, supported by two sidekicks, the one who looks like a Thunderbirds puppet (for non – British readers, Thunderbirds was a 1960 sci – fi puppet show; no, really, it was; which has gained cult status around the world) and the one who looks like a puppet from Fireball XL5, another 1960s sci – fi puppet show which has not gained cult status and deservedly so, wants us to cough up more money so he can give it to bankers and businessmen. The man who thought up this ruse is another Brown buddy who looks like a Dark Lord from Lord Of The Rings. We will not identify him as mention of his name has been known to drive people to suicide.

Brown and his gang are desperate to get the economy moving. They have spent all the government’s money on bailing out bankers and feeding fat cats caviar and cream and now as no-one is spending, no –one is making any money. Therefore the government are not raking in any taxes to pay the seven per cent interest on the money they borrowed from the banks having lent it to the banks a 0.5 per cent interest.

As we have no manufacturing industry left and no natural resources to exploit because Brown’s silly commitments to reduce our carbon footprint put our coal off limits (You may notice that other nations make vague noises about carbon emissions but keep on pumping the oil, digging the coal and helping their economies to flourish,) the only way the British economy can be restarted is by Mr. and Mrs. Average Briton resuming digging themselves ever deeper into debt so they can start consuming and the economy can grow. As Steinbeck wrote in The Grapes of Wrath, “The economy is a monster that must grow because if it ever stops growing it dies.” It has died and cannot be resuscitated by Mr. & Mrs Average Britons’ debts.

Unfortunately for Ol’ Bag O’ Shite Brown Mr & Mrs Average Briton are already so deep in debt there are two big blokes waiting outside their house for them to show their faces. As soon as our typical couple set foot outside these two, the Psycho – Bastard twins, Ugly and Murdering will deliver the message their boss E. Ville Loanshark wrote on the baseball bats with nails through the end that the boys are holding. The message reads: “This is nothing personal, it’s just business. If I let you rip me off everyone will think they can too.”

Yes, debt collecting, usury and prostitution are the only industries that are growing in Bag O’shite Brown’s Britain. Yet in this dystopic environment the government thinks a few bland statements about things getting better because the rate of decline has slowed will all us all with confidence. That or they think blaming our selfishness for the recession will guilt trip us all into selling our kids into slavery to save this failed government from complete annihilation as a political force at the next election.

Right, any Brown fans out there let’s be ‘avin’ you. There must be some if there are Blair fans, Blair is even more despicable than Brown slightly. At least Brown only preaches politics to us, he does not blether on about “faith.” So anybody who thinks as one Blair fan does that I am sitting here with my beer and chips (actually it is Claret and Canapes sweetie) carping and criticising while good people like Saint Tony are “at least trying to do something,” bring ‘em on.
