EU referendum: Bank of England ready to pump billions into financial system to counter turmoil of Br

Source: Independent

The Bank of England is on standby to pump billions of pounds into the financial system in case of market turmoil following a vote to leave the European Union in June.


Similar emergency steps were taken during the financial crisis in 2008 and privately considered – but not taken – during the Scottish independence referendum in 2014.

Clintons Presidential advertisement these days in Chicago make a very interesting pledge. A good pledge, a basic value that should be appreciated by the American working class.

A very compelling reason to choose Hillary for President, moreover, to choose diplomatic efforts in every level before war or so called restricted military engagement. Training troops also should be declared by Congress as any war efforts be declared by Congress.

Our experience in the phony IRAQ Bush war, supported by a corrupt media and the total economic swindle in the Bush era is proof a dangerous political cancer permeates the Republican Party.

Hillary gives the impression that for those corporations that ask for bailouts – and get them – should face consequences in the American market if they decide to move out of the country to avoid future American taxes.

It sounds reasonable, actually sounds more than reasonable were the American tax payer that commits to save an American company should expect a return of the basic like job security, and dedication to the fundamental American fabric, not a loyal patron to some CEO, or manager.

Especially reasonable because of social infrastructure so complimentary in open competing laws startup companies enjoy in America.

However, many corporate MBA’s that enjoyed long term profits and benefits over decades, change direction “AT WILL” with the whim of MBA Gaussian inspired decisions ~ make a turn on, against the public, the very argument that is core to Eminent Domain which the public is entitled to.

Then Americans are in the street, unemployed, that very Eminent Domain is violated. That is wrong, for over a century that simple “at will” decision has plagued the American worker. Its time to change that…

Or is it that a Bernie supporter has to make it All About Hillary?

Either way, a bit of perspective is needed. This has nothing whatsoever to do with Hillary, or the USA. Sometimes, bits of news i nteh world aren't all about your pet obsession.

After all, the family of 5 (Anglo countries) that spy on 'allies' together should stay together and to heck with The Continent or anyone else.

Maybe we'll find a way to return to the good old days of pushing opium on other countries to keep them weak, or blockading their ports from receiving food aid.
