Внутренняя политика России и проституция

Многие давно знали, что связаны внутренняя политика России и проституция и порнография. Но мало кто догадывался, насколько политическая порнография в путинской РФ переплетена с порнографией и проституцией обыкновенной. Плавно переходим к приключениям Насти Рыбки, оскандалившей могучего олигарха с влиятельным министром, и сопутствующим персонажам. Недавно Егор П. в двух сериях осветил подробности сенсационного дела.

Austerity really has hit poor people hardest – the figures prove it | Jonathan Portes

Tax and welfare changes introduced by George Osborne in 2010 will continue to push children into poverty unless we rethinkOn Tuesday, the chancellor announced that the government’s debt would start to fall relative to GDP – a target originally set by George Osborne in 2010. Back then, the then chancellor said “We’re all in this together”, while in 2012 his chief secretary to the Treasury, Danny Alexander, told delegates at the Liberal Democrat conference: “We simply will not allow the books to be balanced in a way that hits the poorest hardest.” On Wednesday, the Equality and Human Rights Commission publishes our research, which contains the most detailed and thorough assessment yet of those claims.Our analysis shows that, contrary to Alexander’s pledge, changes to taxes and welfare payments since 2010 have indeed hit the poorest hardest, whether you look at the record of the 2010-15 coalition government or that of the Conservative government elected in May 2015. Some changes, such as increases in the personal allowance and the minimum wage, have boosted incomes; but others, especially cuts to benefits and tax credits, more than offset this.

Britain's Massive Charity Scam

Authored by Giulio Meotti via The Gatestone Institute, In a secularized West, charitable organizations are the modern-day saints granting us our expiatory rites. Many humanitarian NGOs even seem to cater to Western consciences filled with guilt. Since these NGOs say they work on behalf of "humanity" and for a "better world", while possibly assuming that states and governments act only for the sake of social efficiency or their own self-preserving interests. Yet, often these NGOs risk becoming bureaucracies as much as states do, sometimes even with similar sexual and financial scandals. At times these NGOs also can look like just a "mammoth machinery" with more employees than services; a steep, often unaccountable budget, and an ideology promoting the worst "Western stereotyping". The weekly magazine The Spectator called them "the bad charity". Lately, not a single week has passed without a negative story in the press about British NGOs. Now Oxfam, one of the wealthiest and most important of them, is sinking from a series of scandals in Africa and Haiti. It used, it seems, taxpayers' money, intended for the earthquake victims, to pay for "Caligula-style orgies". It also fired the actresses Kristin Davis and Scarlett Johansson, who volunteered as Oxfam "ambassadors," after they appeared in advertisements for Israeli companies. Oxfam accused the women of rhetorically "oppressing" the Palestinians; meanwhile Oxfam's staff was physically oppressing the Haitians. Every year, not only at Oxfam, more than 1,000 acts of sexual abuse are committed by people who are supposed to be protecting children and vulnerable people, according to the British charities' regulator. Even the NGO of David Miliband, the former Labour party frontrunner, was hit by a scandal of sexual abuse, fraud and corruption. According to a report by the BBC, women in Syria have been sexually exploited by men delivering aid on behalf of the United Nations and other Western charities. "The exploitation is so widespread that some Syrian women are refusing to go to distribution centres because people would assume they had offered their bodies for the aid they brought home", the BBC explains, quoting a new UN report on the humanitarian abuses. According to Aidan Hartley in The Spectator, trouble for these NGOs began when they stopped helping people and started becoming politically correct by "blaming the West, stoking guilt and making Africa into a utopian playground for socialists from Sussex University". Israel recently banned representatives of 20 non-governmental groups from entering the country, including the British organization War on Want, which according to NGO Monitor fabricates accusations of "genocide" and "crimes against humanity" against Israel. The historic Halo Trust was an organization beloved by Britain's late Lady Diana. The actress Angelina Jolie in 2014 accused its executives of paying themselves handsomely with "consultancy fees." The Kids Company was also exposed for evidently squandering money on the "lavish" lifestyle of its founder, Camila Batmanghelidjh. It seems that £35 million of public money have also disappeared down the black hole of the Libor fund, established by then-Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne to support war veterans. The Sunday Times disclosed that in fact, it "wasted" vast amounts of money. In England, philanthropic organizations have become a bureaucracy. There are evidently more than 195,289 registered charities in the United Kingdom that collect and spend almost £80 billion a year. Altogether, the NGOs employ one million employees, more than the automobile, aerospace and chemical sectors in the UK. Most of the large NGOs in the UK, however, spend less half of their income each year on charitable works, according to the True and Fair Foundation. The Daily Telegraph found that the executives of many NGOs saw their salaries increase, despite efforts to curb pay levels. In Haiti, after a devastating earthquake in 2010, humanitarian efforts, it seems, did more harm than good. First, UN peacekeepers brought cholera to the island, killing almost 10,000 people. Then, the UN troops sexually abused Haitian children in a child sex ring. Third came the scandal of Oxfam. It seems like a colonialism of the do-gooders. Another British NGO, Amnesty International, we are told, excuses Islamic extremism. Its secretary general, Claudio Cordone, said that "defensive jihad" is not "antithetical" to the struggle for human rights after Amnesty came under scrutiny for the relationship with CAGE, another NGO founded by an extremist Muslim, Moazzam Begg, which campaigns for the release of imprisoned jihadists. When one of Amnesty's senior officers, Gita Sahgal, expressed concerns, she was suspended. "To be appearing on platforms with Britain's most famous supporter of the Taliban, whom we treat as a human rights defender is a gross error of judgment," she wrote.   Amnesty International has come under scrutiny for its relationship with CAGE, an NGO founded by an extremist Muslim, Moazzam Begg, which campaigns for the release of imprisoned jihadists. When one of Amnesty's senior officers, Gita Sahgal (pictured), expressed concerns, she was suspended. (Image source: Nano GoleSorkh/Wikimedia Commons)   Some NGOs have been financing Islamic terrorism, especially in Syria, with taxpayers' money. William Shawcross, president of the Charity Commission, called it a "deadly" problem for the charities. More than half the humanitarian donations from the United Kingdom to Syria through small NGOs have ended up in the hands of ISIS and other jihadist groups, according to the think-tank Quilliam Foundation. In this way, millions of pounds, thanks to the generosity of British taxpayers, have fallen in the hands of terror groups, Fatiha-Global, which should have brought help to Syrian refugees fleeing the war, instead diverted the funds to the Islamic State, the very terror group which had caused the refugee crisis to begin with. To top it off, the head of Fatiha-Global, Adeel Ali, was photographed with the jihadists of the Caliphate -- the same Jihadist group that beheaded British volunteer Alan Henning, who had come to Syria on behalf of the subsidiaries of Fatiha.

The Tories never cared about eliminating the deficit. It was just a pretext to slash the state | Frances Ryan

David Cameron and George Osborne are celebrating this week. But their austerity programme has left lives in ruinsThey say that a picture looks different, depending on the viewers’ perspective. The same can be said for politics. The continuing, unprecedented cuts to Britain’s public services, for example, will appear quite different to a disabled person unable to get to the toilet because their social care has been halved than they will to, say, a former prime minister reading the news at his mansion.Two events from the past week display this stark contrast. In response to news that Britain has eliminated its day-to-day deficit budget, the delayed target originally set by George Osborne when he imposed austerity on public services in 2010, the former chancellor tweeted: “We got there in the end – a remarkable national effort. Thank you.” David Cameron followed self-congratulatory suit with: “It was the right thing to do.” Continue reading...

Eliminate the deficit? Eliminate economic hope, more like | Phil McDuff

All George Osborne’s great project has done is destroy growth, and escalate poverty. Is that what austerity was for?Congratulations, everyone! We did it! The deficit has been eliminated! George Osborne, the architect of austerity, emerged from one of his non-jobs as the editor of the London Evening Standard to tell us all it was a “remarkable national effort” on Twitter, as if he’d ever broken a sweat over it. David Cameron, who will go down as arguably the worst prime minister in history thanks to the gigantic power move of doing a Brexit and running away, simply added: “It was the right thing to do” – safe in the knowledge that he was now out of the line of fire from tough questions.

Has the time come for a wealth tax in the UK? | Richard Partington

Taxing the rich will address inequality and secure the welfare state’s future. It’s a Tory peer’s call, and he’s rightTax may as well be a four letter word. Politicians have found little public support for raising taxes over the years. Think of the poll tax riots, the furore over Ed Miliband’s mansion tax or George Osborne’s “omnishambles” budget and the pickle he was in over the humble pasty.Usually the most resistance is reserved for wealth taxes, not least for their doom-laden names given by the media: no voter wants to pay for death tax or dementia tax. Denis Healey, the Labour chancellor misquoted for wanting to “squeeze the rich until the pips squeak”, came closest, with a 1974 election wealth tax pledge but was forced to backtrack. The pips would have squeaked a little too loud for comfort. Continue reading...

A triumph for George Osborne’s austerity plan? Not when our social fabric is in tatters | Ann Pettifor

The ex-chancellor rejoices as his target is finally hit, but austerity has taken a terrible tollGeorge Osborne, cheered on by the Institute for Fiscal Studies, basked in self-admiration last week. With a tweet, Osborne joined in celebrations around the elimination of the deficit on Britain’s current budget – used for day-to-day spending on, for example, the NHS, housing, education and local government.The cheerleaders ignored the consequences of that “achievement”, not least of which is the threat to Britain’s economy and social fabric caused by the turmoil of Brexit.

Is the British establishment finally finished?

Aeron Davis has spent 20 years researching Britain’s elite, interviewing more than 350 leaders in business and politics. His conclusion? Their failings are not only damaging society, but undermining the foundations of the establishment itselfIn his 2014 book The Establishment, Owen Jones explained how and why Britain’s unequal, class-ridden system would always prevail. It was written at a time when the elite seemed to be thriving, despite having recently helped to trash the global economy. After a few lean years for “Davos man”, bank debt had effectively been nationalised. No one in power had gone to jail, while most of them seemed to be getting richer and richer. As Jones explained, the establishment was as dominant as ever.Developments since then have sorely tested that view. After the vote for Brexit, David Cameron and George Osborne were suddenly cast adrift, while the Bank of England and captains of industry found themselves wondering who to support. The Conservative party – their political party, the only one they had ever supported – was following a course of action they thought would wreck the economy. Sterling and the FTSE 100 index plummeted. Shareholders began revolting and bankers relocating. Continue reading...

Change taxation to build a better society | Letters

Readers including Caroline Lucas and Ruth Lister respond to Guardian articles by Owen Jones and Gaby HinsliffOwen Jones’s discussion of tax seeks to put forward a “radical” agenda but is actually strikingly conservative, especially because of its focus on higher income tax rates (Tax radicals? McDonnell and Corbyn are not radical enough, 16 February). This focus is unhelpfully constraining for two reasons.First, income tax now matters much less than it used to – it has fallen from over half of total UK revenue in the 1970s to about 30% today. There have been compensating rises in VAT and national insurance contributions, and the second of these especially is ripe for radical reform. Second, within income tax, the focus on the rates is far too narrow. How much tax is paid is hugely affected by the tax base, and the allowances given. The most indefensible of these is the allowance for pension contributions at the higher rates, a huge bonus for the better-off. George Osborne seemed to be shaping up to do something about these, but then bottled it. Continue reading...

The Guardian view on childhood obesity: forget small steps, tackle big food | Editorial

New research shows that school-based programmes won’t solve the crisis. Without tougher action on the food industry, it will cash in – while the rest of us payWe are in a global health crisis, and it grows worse by the year. By 2030 almost half the world’s population will be overweight or obese if current trends continue, the World Health Organization has warned. There are already 124 million obese children: a more than tenfold increase in four decades. More than a million of these live in the UK, which has the worst obesity rates in western Europe. Four in five will grow up to be obese adults; and the leader of the UK’s paediatric body warns that this will cost them 10 to 20 years of healthy life.This is a social problem, both in cause and consequence. The chief executive of NHS England, Simon Stevens, has warned that obesity could bankrupt the health service. Yet the government’s response has been as modest and inadequate as these figures are shocking. Medical experts describe its childhood obesity strategy as weak, embarrassing and even insulting. Though it inherited a tax on sugary drinks – which comes into force this year – from George Osborne, it rowed back from restrictions on price-cutting promotions and junk food marketing or advertising. Instead, the strategy relies heavily on measures such as school activity programmes. Continue reading...

The Oxfam row is no reason to cut foreign aid | Matthew d’Ancona

Jacob Rees-Mogg and the crusaders against compassion will shamelessly exploit this story, which is irrelevant to their causeIt’s hard to ignore the symmetry. On Thursday, the Times reported that Oxfam had covered up the use of prostitutes in Haiti by its aid workers. On Friday, Jacob Rees-Mogg, the current darling of the Tory grassroots, arrived in Downing Street to deliver a petition of more than 100,000 Daily Express readers demanding cuts to the aid budget. There is, of course, no formal connection between the Times’s important story and Rees-Mogg’s appearance as a well-spoken mortician, come to collect the corpse of compassion. But there is an undeniable psychological link, one that the Conservative right will exploit pitilessly.It seems aeons ago, but there was a time when the Tory high command, in the high season of party modernisation, was deeply and persistently preoccupied by the question of foreign aid. As shadow chancellor, George Osborne grew close to Jeffrey Sachs, author of The End of Poverty, pledging to ringfence at least 0.7% of national income for international development spending (a promise that was finally given statutory force in 2015).

The Guardian view on May in China: the ‘golden era’ has lost its lustre | Editorial

The prime minister struck a more cautious note than her predecessors on her visit to Beijing. Her approach is sensible – but she has fewer cards in her handWhere’s the beef? Anyone looking at Theresa May’s three-day visit to China would be wise to focus on the substance: such trips have a history of over-promising and under-delivering. Yet it’s a sign of the times that the government has interpreted the question so literally, flagging up among its headline successes the possible lifting of a BSE-era ban so that British beef imports can reach Chinese tables. Overall, the package of agreements came in far short of previous visits. Though the mantra of a “golden era” of Sino-British relations was repeated, the shine has come off for both sides.The trip, supposedly a declaration of Britain’s trade potential in the age of Brexit, was inevitably overshadowed by her own party’s wranglings over that very subject and her leadership. The relationship’s immense asymmetry has never been quite so stark. On one side, Xi Jinping, “chairman of everything”: the most powerful leader in decades of an increasingly mighty and self-confident (some say hubristic) nation. On the other, Mrs May, an enfeebled figure representing – but for how much longer? – a nation weakened and isolated by its own folly. Though we are assured she raised human rights and the parlous political situation in Hong Kong in her meetings, she did not do so publicly. A party-run tabloid even commended her for sidestepping the topic. Continue reading...

The Guardian view on parliament’s move: be bold, leave London | Editorial

With Westminster in need of refurbishment, parliamentarians should seize the opportunity to strengthen links with the rest of the UKParliament’s decision to move out of the Palace of Westminster is an opportunity that should be seized; it is also a risk that could be mishandled. MPs voted this week to quit the hallowed Westminster site for at least six years, probably from 2025, to enable major refurbishment of what has become a dangerous and inadequate set of buildings. The plan is to build a temporary replica chamber and to find alternative offices for MPs and peers while the work is carried out.The cost of the refurbishment and the temporary arrangements is put at £4bn. Yet such figures have a way of rising, especially if contracts are not ruthlessly audited and controlled, as recent scandals have shown. MPs from Theresa May down are understandably anxious that the refurbishment costs could become politically toxic. If the public feels that MPs consider money no object for their own needs while cuts and privations are necessary for everyone else, the already fragile standing of politics risks further damage.

Каникулы для банков Кипра... вторник...среда...четверг...

Пока кипрский парламент пытается решить что делать (...президент Кипра уже жалуется ЕС, что парламент не поддерждит стрижку депозитов), а заседание перенесено на 19 марта (по данным спикера 20:00 мск), кипрские банки закрыты уже до четверга (каникулы продлили) любопытно посмотреть на реакцию…Президент Кипра Никос Анастасиадис: сказал что их вынудили и выбора нет и сравнил ситуацию с турецким вторжением 1974 года (символично)Президент России Владимир Путин: назвал возможное решение несправедливым, непрофессиональным и опасным (как есть, достаточно прагматично)Премьер России Дмитрий Медведев: «выглядит просто как конфискация чужих денег» и пообещал сделать выводы (конфискация и есть)Глава российского Минфина Антон Силуанов: указал на нарушение договоренности о совместном принятии решений и указал, что вопрос о российском участии будет прорабатываться с учетом развития ситуации (министра финансов Кипра ждет в среду холодный прием)Политик и бизнесмен Михаил Прохоров: «Евросоюз, по сути, открыл "ящик Пандоры", создав опасный прецедент...» (именно так)Банкир Александр Лебедев: «Так делали только большевики и во время войны» (ну … не только)Глава Европарламента Мартин Шульц: предложил отменить налог на депозиты до 25 тыс. (тогда придется повысить на остальных)Министр финансов Германии Вольфганг Шойбле: выступил за отмену налога для депозитов менее 100 тыс. и вообще заявил, что ответственность за решение несут ЕК, ЕЦБ и власти Кипра.. "Они приняли это решение, они и должны объяснить его кипрскому народу" (не вииииноваааатаая яяяяяя!!!)Министр финансов Франции Пьер Московиси: тоже поддерживает мелких вкладчиков (некоторые французы заговорили, что большие вклады можно и на 20% постричь…)Член ЕЦБ Йорг Асмуссен: главное, чтобы собрали 5.8 млрд., а как соберут – это пусть решают сами власти Кипра (правильно, зато потом всегда можно откреститься – это они сами виноваты)Член ЕЦБ Эвальд Новотны: назвал решение непростым и заявил, что Кипр - это «особый случай» (забыл сказать какой по счету … Греция тоже была особым случаем при первом дефолте, потом пришел второй, потом Кипр…)Еврокомиссия: отказывается от комментариев, ожидая пока закон обсудят в ходе "нормального демократического процесса" (улыбаясь и помахивая плеткой…)Министр финансов Великобритании Джордж Осборн: пообещал компенсировать потери военнослужащим и сотрудникам военной базы (но ещё многие англичане попадут под «стрижку»)Премьер Греции Антонис Самарас: пообещал быть рядом с Кипром в трудный момент (собственно эта близость и стала началом конца кипрских банков, которые понесли огромные потери от списаний греческого долга… может лучше подальше?)Немецкий экономист экономист Петер Бофингер: назвал решение экспроприацией и падением очередного «табу» (как есть)Кто там ещё что сказал? P.S.: Многие компании работают через Кипр, но большинство из них не имеет прямых взаимоотношений с кипрскими банками, а обслуживаются в крупных международных банках. Часть обслуживается в дочках российских банков на Кипре (например ВТБ). Потому «заморозка» не несет какой-то критической угрозы для расчетных операций, в первом случае деньги вообще никак не касаются Кипра, во втором – банки (через чьи «дочки» идет финансирование) спокойно предоставят отсрочки и финансирование. Кто-то, конечно, столкнется со сложностями, но это не будет системной проблемой.P.P.S.: Ну а кипрскую банковскую систему, видимо, уже можно хоронить, спасти её теперь может только чудо, при открытии банков отток депозитов из них может быть таким, что никакая рекапитализация не поможет, разве что станок ЕЦБ ... или креативные еврокомиссары что-то новое придумают)

Moody’s понизил рейтинг гособлигаций Великобритании до «Aa1»

Международное рейтинговое агентство Moody’s пересмотрело в сторону понижения рейтинг гособлигаций Великобритании в домашней и иностранной валюте. Рейтинг снижен на одну ступень с «Aaa» до «Aa1», прогноз «стабильный», сообщает агентство. Рейтинг Банка Англии также понижен.Причиной для понижения рейтинга послужил слабый прогноз среднесрочного развития страны. По мнению экспертов Moody’s, вялый рост британской экономики сохранится минимум до 2016 года. Слабые перспективы роста создают вызовы для правительственной программы финансовой консолидации, отмечается в сообщении. Кроме того, из-за высокой и растущей долговой нагрузки страны амортизация правительственного баланса ухудшится, и ситуация вряд ли изменится до 2016 года, полагают аналитики агентства.В то же время Moody’s отмечает, что кредитоспособность Великобритании по-прежнему очень высока, поскольку в стране высококонкурентная, диверсифицированная экономика, благоприятная структура долга, большой опыт фискальной консолидации и надежная институциональная структура. Агентство также понизило рейтинг Банка Англии с «Aaa» до «Aa1».Британский министр финансов Джордж Осборн назвал решение Moody’s суровым напоминанием о долговых проблемах, стоящих перед страной, передает BBC.

По мнению Института Налоговых Исследований страны, министр финансов Джорджу Осборну, скорее всего, понадобится найти дополнительные 11 млрд. фунтов стерлингов за счет повышения налогов или сокращения трат, если экономика не пойдет на подъем.

Дефицит британского бюджета растет

http://ru.euronews.com/ Объем чистых заимствований властей Великобритании на покрытие бюджетого дефицита вырос в октябре до 6,5 млрд. фунтов (это 8 млрд. евро). Цифры в полтора раза выше, чем предполагалось. Эксперты говорят, что тем самым возрастает давление на министра финансов Джорджа Осборна, ему придется не только более активно сокращать расходы правительства, но и изыскивать дополнительные источники финансирования. На фоне рецессии делать это непросто. Например, в октябре поступления от налога на прибыль от британских корпораций упали на 10%.

Интрига вокруг нового главы Банка Англии усиливается

Вице-премьер Великобритании, глава входящей в коалицию Партии либеральных демократов Никк Клегг призвал следующего главу Банка Англии сохранять дистанцию с банками страны и банковской системы в целом."Очевидно, что нужен человек, понимающий систему работы банковской системы, но не поглощенный ею",- заявил Клегг.Министр финансов Джордж Осборн в этом месяце официально начал поиск кандидата для замены Мервина Кинга на посту главы Бака Англии. Кинг должен покинуть место в июне, после завершения максимально возможного срока пребывания в этом кресле: два срока по 5 лет.Сложность выбора нового главы состоит в том, что глава либеральных демократов Клегг будет иметь решающий голос. Сложно в такой ситуации сказать, кто имеет наиболее высокие шансы, учитывая, что Клегг известен своей крайне жесткой позицией относительно помощи и поддержки финансового сектора.Бывший заместитель главы Банка Англии Джон Гив заявил, что выбор будет очень трудным для правительства, так как кандидатов, репутация которых была бы не запятнана, после ряда скандалов, связанных с манипуляцией ключевой ставкой на рынке межбанковского кредитования, практически нет.Министр по делам бизнеса Винс Кейбл считает, что наиболее подходящая кандидатура на пост главы Банка Англии - Пол Такер, член Комитета по монетарной политике Банка Англии, поскольку по опросам его репутация не пострадала в ходе недавних скандалов, связанных с манипуляцией LIBOR.
