Is Lord Fallon a devious, propagandising ethical cripple you can see coming a mile off?

We’re just not sure. You decide.

Senior Tory and Treasury Select Committee member Michael Fallon had this to say at a City dinner last night:

“Dr Cable spoke of responsible capitalism. Well he slips his electronic tag occasionally. There is another side to responsible capitalism and that is responsible government. I believe there are limits to government.”

So, Cable is off message when he talks about responsible capitalism, argues Mr Fallon. He’d rather have irresponsible, socially selfish, rate-manipulating, sovereign-bankrupting, SME scamming financial capitalism.

And, the ‘other side’ of responsible capitalism is responsible government he contends. Except that as we don’t have accountable, responsible capitalism, why should he get limited government deregulating crooks?

When Michael Fallon ‘grilled’ Bob Diamond at the TSC enquiry on Libor two months back, he omitted to tell the enquiry that his son was employed by Diamond. He also omitted to point out that for many years, he was himself employed by one of the largest Libor dealers on the planet.

So we must ask ourselves, is Fallon an irresponsible, shifty capitalist who wants deregulated financial services entirely in his own rarely declared interests? It’s hard to tell.

Why is it that so many top-brass necks get away with promoting bilge? How can Boris Johnson tell us we should stop bashing bankers…and keep a straight face? How can George Osborne effectively say that “we are all in this together”, and that large banks do not need reform? Why do so many 1922ers loathe Cable, when he was consistently right about their hero Murdoch? How can Bojo and Michael Gove continue to heap praise on Murdoch as “a guiding light among media owners” when he lied his fat Digger head off to the Leveson enquiry and allowed a culture of illegal privacy invasion to take hold inside Newscorp? How can Jeremy Hunt insist to a packed Commons that he “did nothing wrong” during the BSkyB takeover process?

It’s simply, really. Because the Opposition couldn’t knock the skin off a rice pudding, the electorate is either asleep or distracted, far too many decent Tory supporters are incredibly naive, the media are lazy and spineless, and the overall UK culture has now descended so deep into the excrement, disingenuous bollocks seems normal acceptable, and believable.

By the time Camerlot has gone, we will be England. Shortly after that, we will be Greece. Ten years later, Mexico. Five years after that, Zimbabawe. Welcome to the new Camerworld of Adventures ride, “To Hell in a Bucket”.

  2. The Common Purpose !
    Why the UK is being sabotaged from within as a viable sovereign nation state.

    James Warburg, son of CFR [Council on Foreign Relations] founder Paul Warburg, and a member of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s “brain trust,” which was made up of individuals from outside government, including professors, lawyers, and others who came to Washington to advise him on economic affairs, delivered blunt testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on February 17, 1950
    We shall have world government whether or not you like it – by conquest or consent.
    David Rockefeller, at the 1991 Baden-Baden meeting of the Bilderberg Group
    We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time magazine and other great publications, whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years.”(He went on to explain:)’It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto determination practiced in past centuries.


  3. The so-called intellectual elite and bankers of the EU are already driving the Greek electorate to the political extremes. This will probably soon be replicated in other countries. War between European nations will not be the immediate consequence of hard left or hard right national governments coming to power. Nationalist-inspired violence against foreigners will be and I don’t mean violence only against people from outside the EU. I mean violence against anyone from a different national group. Violence against nationals of a neighbouring country, however, might lead to war.


  4. Gallon is 100 percent RIGHT. It is the Government that creates money and that is the ‘product’ upon which the Banking Industry depends. The Banking Crisis was The Governments Fault. They are clueless and should reduce dramatically the thengs that they try to do. The first thing they should do is get off our backs and let us create wealth so we can all keep eating!
    Cable is competent for a Lib Dem. Which is not saying much!


  5. Is Vince Cable someone to admire and respect, or a n out of touch socialist with no experience of real life?


  6. No, fiat money is created by private banks, not governments. It is a failure of government in so far as they took away moral hazard by bailing the bastards out, but your ideas about money creation are 100% wrong.


  7. Cable is just an old socialist arsehole. He thinks the answer to the problem of big government and corporatism is even bigger government, only run by him and his pinko scumbag mates.


  8. Sebastien,
    Why do you think the central (private) banks create moeny out of thin air? It’s so that they can lend it to Governments for interest. Imagine! Being able to create something out of NOTHING and keep Governments (and, ulitmately, the taxpayers) in debt!

    The Government(s) bailed the banks out because (well, amongst other reasons) of their need(s) to keep spending. They’re basically like children who don’t understand consequences – if they do understand them they should out on their ears or hung from high poles.



  9. He studied economics. Hence he was never taught what ‘money’ is. At least he admits it. But he wouldn’t know what lever to pull to make a difference.

    The Government only creates a minute share of the money in circulation: the Cash in our pockets. Banks, however, create all the Credit they want, from THIN AIR! And then they charge money.

    That’s the real scam that’s going on. Whether Governments know / understand this, I have yet to fathom out.

    But what is for sure: the financial economy ‘eats’ the real economy! Big Time. More on


  10. Couldn’t agree more John. Yet there is almost no one I know of that wants to discuss it all. And as a medical professional I am working and socialising with others who are, on the face of it, reasonably well educated.


  11. Imagine for a moment the general reaction if the roles were reversed and a Lib Dem junior minister were to make similar public remarks about his Tory senior…
