Malarkey And Shenanigans

You Must Do Without Hospitals And Education So That We Might Have War

John Pilger on the fake remembrance of the carnage at Gallipoli: "...this year some 8000 flag-wrapped Antipodeans listened, dewy-eyed, to the Australian governor-general Quentin Bryce, who is the Queen’s viceroy, describe the point of pointless mass killing. It was, she said, all about a “love of nation, of service, of family, the love we give and the love we receive and the love we allow ourselves to receive. [It is a love that] rejoices in the truth, it bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. And it never fails”.

Of all the attempts at justifying state murder I can recall, this drivel of DIY therapy, clearly aimed at the young, takes the blue riband. Not once did Bryce honour the fallen with the two words that the survivors of 1915 brought home with them: “Never again”."

My grandad was pockmarked from Gallipoli.
He could never even talk about it.

Fake Media Following A Fake Marketing Campaign

Just who is Clegg?
Does he really believe that, just because he is a Tory and the media, en masse, have decided that we have a Tory government, the membership of his party and the left of centre norm among his MPs will support a right wing racist disgrace of a party?

This is Railroading Democracy - a very British version of the Florida strain of electoral distortion.

And why was Theo Guardian telling all the Lunching Ladies and their neutered appendages that backing the LibDem's was the way forward... what? A Tory government.

But how many less well informed people voted for the only left of centre main party thinking that they were standing up to the Big Two when actually they were simply supporting yet another state takeover by the Public School Elite.


Dark Pools And Their Perturbations

We have received several responses to our assertion that the non-regulated underground markets were responsible for the shenanigans in the public markets last week.

The most interesting was the following from Dave Robinson in the Cayman Islands: "I met a long-time email and phone contact who works out of Chicago and vacations in Cayman, for a beer the other night. We were just chatting about the markets and the way the Obama and Brown administrations were reading the same cards in different ways. He suddenly started dropping hints about Dark Pools (his words) gaming the markets. Either I've unwittingly contacted a fellow 'dietro-traveller' or the word is out. Which is it?"

Dark Pools are like Jupiter.
Other celestial bodies are happily orbiting the Sun while experiencing mild perturbations from other similarly sized bodies that pass in their vicinity when, suddenly, the Solar Systemic Black Swan contorts and captures their world.

The parallel with Asian dominance of global football in the nineties is astounding.

Sicilian Piss Taking

It follows a pattern if you dig what I mean...
Well, two patterns actually.

Firstly the one relating to late season Catania matches being rigged in extremis.
And, secondly, the one relating to no reaction from any authorities.

In the third of the series, Bologna and Catania drew yesterday in a match that very few market makers would go anywhere near. The price on the Draw was as short as 1.50 (1/2) at the off.
As with the agreed draw against Chievo, Giannoccaro was the referee.
There were no challenges.
No bookings.
And the game ended one apiece.

There is nothing like competitive sport.

Pricing Pickle

How could the markets price Chelsea at 1.08 (1/12) for the match and at 1.09 (1/11) for the Premier League title prior to the final round of theatre?

Think about it!

Scudamore Shows Stalinesque Side To His Psychopathy

Rate The Ref is an excellent website where referees may exchange their views on the state of officiation in the game.
The site has been a persistent critic of the manner in which the Premier League and the Professional Game Match Officials Board deals (literally) with the Select Group of match referees in the EPL.

When Theo Guardian isn't working towards a Tory government, giving three (3!!) articles to Louise Taylor on FC Twente, it gives column inches to Our Great Leader to spin his deceptions.

Scudamore has effectively closed this website down by demanding the ludicrous seven and a half grand that the EPL extort from anybody who wishes to name a future fixture in their media.

The purges, the purges...

Silly Science And Some Slick Stuff Too

Academics are never able to do the holistic otherwise they would not be academics.
But they are top notch for micro-focus cause and effect types of configurative contortions.

Take the following for starters from the Soccerway site...

FAKING A FALL: How can you tell when a player is diving? One telltale is the "archer's bow," says British psychologist Paul Morris. This is when a player falls with both arms in the air, with open palms, chest thrust out and legs bent at the knee, like a sprung archery bow. "This occurs in many dives but biomechanically it does not occur in a natural fall," says Morris. "Instead, instinctively the arms go down in an attempt to cushion the fall or out to the side for balance."

NOW IT'S OFFICIAL: Those who say football is the world's most exciting game can take comfort in statistics. Footy beat four other major sports (American football, ice hockey, baseball and basketball) for "upset frequency" when the underdog won, according to data crunchers at Los Alamos National Laboratory in Mexico, whose 2006 study pored over top club results dating back to 1888. American football was the most predictable. Its "upset frequency" was a whopping 25 percent less than soccer.

STOPPAGE TIME: Unhealthy men should beware when watching a penalty shoot-out. Hospital admissions for cardiac arrests in England and Wales rose by 25 percent when England lost to Argentina on penalties on June 30 1998 and on the following two days after their World Cup tie. In the 1996 European Championships, the death rate in the Netherlands from heart attack or stroke went up by around 50 percent on the day when Holland were knocked out by France on penalties. In both cases, the sharp increases were only seen among men, not women.

HIGHS AND LOWS: High-altitude countries are known for the advantage they have when playing at home, when low-altitude opponents struggle in the thin air. Less well known: they retain an edge when playing away. A 2007 paper in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) looked at a century of results among international matches in 10 South American countries. In the case of two teams from the same altitude, the probability of the home side winning was 53 percent. This rose to 82 percent for an altitude difference of +3,695 metres (12,008 feet), as when high-altitude Bolivia were at home to sea-level Brazil. But it fell to 21 percent when the altitude difference was -3,696 metres (12,008 feet), such as when Brazil were at home to Bolivia.

NO NET GAINS: Three common beliefs about patterns in goal scoring are false, according to football statisticians gathered at a workshop at Germany's University of Mannheim in 2006. 1) There is no evidence that players who scored in a previous match are any likelier to score in their next game; 2) a goal scored just before half time has no greater impact on the outcome of the game than a goal scored earlier in the first half; and 3) teams that have just scored are not especially more vulnerable to conceding a goal than at other times.

HOME AND HORMONES: Could biology explain home advantage? British researchers Sandy Wolfson and Nick Neave took levels of testosterone from players before a home game, an away game and at a training session. Levels were much higher before a home game. The male hormone is linked with dominance, confidence and aggression, which implies the lads psyched up to defend their territory.

SEEING RED: Football clubs with red team strips are more successful than rivals with other colours, according to a 2008 analysis of post-World War II English league data by experts from the universities of Durham and Plymouth. Red-wearing teams (such as Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal) won more often, while teams wearing yellow or orange fared worst. The theory: there's a psychological boost from wearing red, a colour which is often associated in nature with male aggression and display.

HOW IT'S SPUN: Remember Roberto Carlos scoring "the Impossible Goal," a swerving spot kick against France in 1997? How did he do it? Some say it's because Carlos is Brazilian. Physicists, though, point to a combination of the Magnus force and Bernoulli's principle. Just after a kick, a spinning ball moves forward at relatively high velocity, and the air flows irregularly over it. When the ball slows -- specifically, when it is between 29-37 kilometres (18-23 miles) per hour -- the airflow becomes smooth, or "laminar," which instantly boosts the air's braking effect, sometimes by as much as 150 percent. This drastically brakes the forward movement of the ball and enhances a curving movement derived from the ball's spin. So Carlos' goal initially dipped to the right of the defensive wall and then suddenly swerved into the net, leaving the French dumbfounded.

DIGITAL FUTURE: Punters looking for a tip on this year's World Cup winners might be advised to take a close look at players' hands. John Manning from Britain's University of Liverpool suggests there is a link between the lengths of a footballer's fingers and his ability as a player. Looking at British players, Manning found that the footballing elite had longer ring fingers compared to their index fingers. Manning's theory is early exposure to testosterone in the womb is a key to heart formation and spatial judgement and finger length, which is why digits can be a telltale, but not a prediction, of prowess.

ALE'S OUT: Those who contend that drinking beer or other alcoholic beverages helps post-match recovery are addled, say medical researchers. In a New Zealand study published in January in the Journal of Science and Medicine in Sports, volunteers carried out strenuous exercise, which was followed by a meal. Some drank orange juice, while the other drank OJ and vodka, the equivalent to around eight standard alcoholic drinks. The guinea pigs were measured a day and a half, and then two days and a half, after exercise. The alcohol group had 15-20 percent less muscular force than the non-alcohol group, and also reported more soreness. "Even moderate amounts of alcohol" are out."

So, the winners of the 2010 World Cup will be a cheating, surprising, altitudinal, goal-scoring, red shirted team with a free kick specialist and enjoying home advantage.
And with uncommonly long fingers.
With the Barmy Fucking Army, could this be the Sassenachs?
The penalty shootout nerve-racking bit and the beer will see to that...

Begorrah! Begosh!! Batter A Banker For May Day

First Against The Wall...

Arrogant bastards who see social living as weakness and malignant psychopathy as strength when, of course, it is t'other way round...

The attitude of BP to the Exxon Mobil Plus Environmental Disaster.
The attitude of World Government to the Plastica - the continent of plastic waste that will eventually link Cork with New York.
The attitude of Wall Street to those who they have robbed blind...

The following Declaration of Intent is pinging around the trading desks:

"We are Wall Street. It’s our job to make money. Whether it’s a commodity, stock, bond, or some hypothetical piece of fake paper, it doesn’t matter. We would trade baseball cards if it were profitable... Go ahead and continue to take us down, but you’re only going to hurt yourselves. What’s going to happen when we can’t find jobs on the Street anymore? Guess what: We’re going to take yours."

Try it, pal :)

The Anti-Humans continue: "...We aren’t dinosaurs. We are smarter and more vicious than that, and we are going to survive."

Where are those meteor strikes when you need them?

Monarchical Market Manipulation

Leslie Griffiths: "A modern day financial monarchy, Goldman acts with the impunity once reserved for kings. Controlling legislators. Electing Presidents. Filling the Executive Branch with well-heeled lackeys, manipulating world markets and betting against the welfare of its own clients... the American people. When their equivalent of "tax time" came, they squeezed the peasants for billions of bail-out bucks."

Over a thousand bankers were jailed after the S&L Crisis.
This Crisis is bigger and more Depressing and what have we got...?
Kenneth Lay topping himself, Madoff and Fab Fab.

Jeremy Grantham: "This speculative rally is second only to 1932/33."

And pre-May Day, global volatility suggests that the fake rally is running out of steam as the manipulators close out on their hyperreal gains.

Too Real For The Telly

Entitled "What They Won't Tell Us", the Channel 4 pre-election forum only succeeded in not telling us what they won't tell us.

No mention at all in the programme...

Housing Bubble
Speculative Rally
W-Shaped Depression
Dark Pools
Manipulation of Gold Markets
Super-Systemic Risk
Real Impact of Negative Growth
Ongoing Criminalised Speculation
The Targeting of the Pound Sterling
The Contagion of Greece

A Typical Snow Fake...

But media control allowed one voice to seep through: "We should learn Greek and fight back."

As the translated graffiti in Athens stated: "Destroy the Banks and the Ministries!"

A Bunch Of Feckin' Eejits And A Corrupt Shower Of Bastards

Beardie Weirdie Chooses Cryptic Magic Thinking Over Strategy - Well Worth A Few Million Per Year

"When I was on my way to the stadium, the laundry man said it would be like Olympiacos all over again, with a great atmosphere and a late goal to win it at the end" - Goatie Madrileno.

Of much more consequence to Rafa's future, according to a shoeshine boy outside Lime Street Station, is the fact that an Agnelli is once again in charge of Juventus in Italy - Andrea took over yesterday.

Being non-strategic, Benitez will not have taken into account the shifting sand-dunes of power in the Italian game. Having been unreasonably targeted by relegation, non-Champions League participation and financial body blows via the fake outcome of Calciopoli, the powers-that-be have once again directly targeted the Old Lady this season, ensuring no qualification for the 2010/11 Champions League and the relegation of one of Juve's feeder clubs, Siena.

There is more dietrologia to hit the fan as Moggi is drip-feeding the media with phone conversations from the Calciopoli period which, presumably, are leading towards the exposure of the Real culprits.
Not before the Statute of Limitations rears its unjudicial head, they won't...

A Pissed Up State And A Legless System

The Economist: "This illustrates the weird symbiosis in which governments rescued the banks but then rely on the banks to buy a large portion of their debt; two drunks propping each other up."

Anyone for a Ponzi Cocktail...?

Jean Baudrillard: "...the crime is never perfect, for the world betrays itself by its appearances, which are the clues to its non existence, the traces of the continuity of the nothing."

Prince Philip Playing Polo On His Arse In Stephen's Green

Man At The Window have recorded a reggae version of 'The Fields Of Athenry' which will soon be available in the Celtic Club Shops alongside John Reid's 'Extraordinary Renditions And The Madness Of States' and Peter Lawwell's 'Bible Of Truth'.

Check: for life enhancement.

Gerry Coogan, from the band, has an angle and it is true and it is happening in Glasgow town.

Would it be in bad taste for me to send a biography of Robert Maxwell to Sir David Murray, (aka Minty Moonbeams)?
And is it too much to hope for the possibility that the Huns really could sink into oblivion?

I've been careful not to get my hopes up too much but I'm really starting to feel that they're holed below the waterline.
The fact that the ten-point penalty for going into administration has been skilfully kept in place by some diabolical refereeing this season has made me suspect that the Brotherhood have accepted for some time that ultimately this bullet can't be dodged...

I can think of no more appropriate irony than that the Huns could finally be exterminated by Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs.
God save the Queen!"

Against the Famine and the crown no longer :)

Eire, Estonia, Iceland, Greece, Spain - The Dominoes Are Getting Bigger And They Continue To Fall

The state-corporate programmes of financialisation and de-industrialisation achieved their latest success yesterday with the downgrading of Spanish Sovereignty.
Ratings Agencies are, to an entity, a corrupt shower of bastards.
Why would we believe their murky smirks and their facilitation of insider trading scams?

Argentina Show That They're All Black Jacobins Now

While the other World Cup participants are selecting competitive and strategic friendly matches leading up to the Marketing Event South Africa 2010, Argentina show that some things are more important than bookmaking and agents - Maradona has set up a friendly match with Haiti.

While all members of the national team survived, some despite having their homes collapse upon them, 32 people were killed in the collapse of the Haitian football federation's headquarters during the earthquake.

The players have gone from sleeping in the streets for three months to planning to play against many of the best players in the world. "I eat well here. I sleep well. But I cannot help but think of my friends and family who don't have that," Haiti forward Charles Herold said. "I can't get that off my mind."

Still there are thousands and thousands and thousands of US Marines to 'look after' the place...

As Noam Chomsky tells us: "To take one succinct official definition, terrorism is 'the calculated use of violence or threat of violence to attain goals that are political, religious, or ideological in nature...through intimidation, coercion, or instilling fear.' Everything I have just described, and a great deal more like it, falls within the category of terrorism, in fact state-directed international terrorism, in the technical sense of US-British law."

Earthquake Equals Occupied Territory.
Everybody Say "Fuck The USA".

Yo! Untutored Blatherskites And Gobshites

Welcome "muck-rakers, obscene poets, carnal pimps, sodomous sychophants, peddlars of the coloured lusts of fallen humanity"...

"Superinjunctions are non-democratic, top-down, often statist interventions covering (neo)hyperrealities, the shared knowledge of which may (or may not) be in the Real public interest, John."

"Well, Fabio! I guess a shag is out of the question then...?"

Meanwhile, the state continues to investigate the state in order to determine if the state went to war illegally on behalf of the state.
The Legal Firm - Blair, Hoon, Straw and Goldsmith - "getting People together" in the words of the latter to create The Loophole of Hyperreality that allowed The Knowns to have been as unknown as The Unknowns in carefully selected temporal windows of logical skullduggery.

Nietzsche: "The noble type of man feels himself to be the determiner of values, he does not need to be approved of, he judges 'what harms me is harmful in itself', he knows himself to be that which in general first accords honour to things, he creates values. Everything he knows to be part of himself, he honours: such a morality is self-glorification... I call it the moral hypocrisy of the commanders. They know no way of defending themselves against their bad conscience other than to pose as executors of more ancient or higher commands (commands of ancestors, of the constitution, of justice, of the law or even of God), or even to borrow herd maxims from the herd's way of thinking and appear as 'the first servant of the people' for example, or as 'instruments of the common good'".

The last person to be impeached in the UK was Henry Dundas, another imperialist warmonger, in 1806.
Being Britain, the impeachment resulted in acquittal.

In fact, in the last two hundred years in the Hyperia, US and Britain, the only the high ranking government representative to be impeached was Bill Clinton - cunnilingus evidently being the greatest crime - greater than all that terror, all those atrocities, all that slavery.
And Nixon.

A coda to the psychopathy of the past...

Darlene Etienne, on being pulled from the rubble fifteen days after the earthquake in Haiti experienced mixed emotions on her release.
Her initial uncontrollable tears of joy when she was told that Gordon Brown had "already talked with Simon Cowell" about the disaster was only temporary.
When she was informed that there were 13,000 US marines in Haiti, she asked to be placed back in the rubble...
