What Happens Next (In Europe)?
the odds of another crisis are higher than a rally to fresh records. [...]
“The 2009-2015 rally originated from two main drivers: a massive stimulus, and credit expansion in China,” said Goette, who’s a partner at his firm in Zug, Switzerland and helps oversee 1 billion Swiss francs ($1 billion).

“European earnings have not followed suit so far. Skepticism regarding central-bank operations has started to emerge.”

Civil servants will be banned from helping Brexit ministers, Cameron says - Politics live | Politics | The Guardian
He put Brexit on the table because it was popular and feared to lose votes to UKIP. Opportunist. Career Politician. Needs a script. And now is changing the script in order not to lose the plot. The public voting yes. // David Cameron has made it clear that civil servants will not be allowed to help ministers who want to make the case for Britain leaving the European Union. He set this out in a letter listing four rules that will apply to ministers who want to campaign for Brexit. [...] [ and makes clear what his cabinet and peers can vote on ] Ministers will only be free to dissent on the issue of staying in the EU or leaving. [...] Ministers who speak from the frontbench will be expected to support government policy. But “we need to be flexible and apply common sense”, Cameron said. [...] This implies that Outist ministers will not be allowed to make the case for leaving the EU from the Despatch Box. [ Meaning his Brexit-Op is a dickless stunt. ]

Henriette Reker mit Messer attackiert - Aufstand? Fehlanzeige. - SPIEGEL ONLINE
ufstand der Anständigen? Fehlanzeige. Trotz des Attentats eines Rechten auf eine Lokalpolitikerin hat nicht einmal jeder zweite Kölner gewählt. So viel Apathie war nie. [...] Die Oberbürgermeisterwahl 2015 ist eine einzige Blamage für Köln. Und sie ist ein alarmierendes Signal. Nicht in irgendeiner strukturschwachen Problemgemeinde mit hoher Arbeitslosigkeit haben sich die Menschen von der Politik abgewandt, sondern in einer florierenden Großstadt, die sich selbst für ungeheuer fortschrittlich hält.

Revealed: how coalition has helped rich by hitting poor | Politics | The Observer
"We are all in this together." [...] &!&!&! http://www.spiegel.de/international/zeitgeist/hilary-mantel-in-an-interview-with-spiegel-on-the-britain-of-today-a-1002263.html "Interview with Hilary Mantel: 'What's Happening in Britain at the Moment Is Really Ugly'" Hilary Mantel's historical novels are celebrated in Britain, but her critiques of the establishment are widely feared. In a SPIEGEL interview, she says her country is retreating into insularity and to attitudes prevalent in Victorian times. [...] It's a retreat into insularity, into a mood of harshness. When people feel they're being mistreated, they lash out against people who are weaker than themselves, immigrants for example. What's happening here at the moment is really ugly. The government portrays poor and unfortunate people as being morally defective. This is a return to the thinking of the Victorians. Even in the 16th century, Thomas Cromwell was trying to tell people that a thriving economy has casualties [...]

BBC News - UK jobless rate falls to lowest level since 2008
avg weekly earnings still lagged way behind inflation. Excluding bonuses, avg earnings in the May to July period rose by 0.7% from a year earlier; including bonuses, they rose by 0.6%. The current rate of inflation is 1.5%. Last month, the Bank of England halved its forecast for average wage growth in 2014 to 1.25%, leading some commentators to believe it is under little pressure to raise interest rates any time soon. [...] Labour's shadow employment minister Stephen Timms said: "Today's fall in overall unemployment is welcome, but the new figures have shown working people are seeing their pay falling far behind the cost of living. "Pay excluding bonuses today is the lowest on record. Under this government wages after inflation have already fallen by over £1,600 a year since 2010 and by next year working people will have seen the biggest fall in wages of any Parliament since 1874." +due 2lack of job security, people arnt asking 4 meaningful raise. service econ jobs dominate recovery!
