Cartoons by Josh
"Head of the IMF Christine Lagarde in court charged with embezzlement and fraud."

It is a pity that this cartoon is unlikely to be published in the mainstream media.
Spot on Josh and Roy.
I didn't think Lagarde could be any more scary but Josh has managed to capture the inner scavenger.
Isn't it funny how many who work within the EU, also work at the IMF, the Wolrd Bank (must pop in to my local branch later), the UN, etc., etc.? Slime produces slime!
She is still under investigation in France for handing out our money to a rich business man.
she shld be in prison..
good job there are double standards in place for wimmin(becus they couldnt vote, like, 100y ago.. and couldnt go to univissitti like 250y ago)
never mind nowadays men are distinctly discriminated against in educashun and employment but thats okay for prog nazis. ooooh fredtheshredgotmoremonney you know ooooo
On a wing and a prayer..........................
The UK is seen as the thick end of the wedge.
Many personal EU financial plans depend on a bunch of people regarded as thick, handing over a wedge of money.
It wouldn't take much at the moment for other EU populations to rise up, wishing to flee the tyranny of EU dictators, by eviction of the EU dictators.
They could flee to Syria (it should be empty soon).
She's a piece of work is Mme. Lagarde, I wonder if, she's on DSK's Christmas card list?
Hand in the till, and certainly no economist is she and yet some people seem to hang on her every word - don't they, George?
I notice she, Christine - is one of the prominent females who lent her signature, a group of French Pol-gals all riled up about alleged sexism in French politics - whoddathunked it?
A flutter of her eyelids, a demur pout, a flash of glossed red lips, dental work lovingly and gleamingly enhanced smile, proudly does she claim to, her womanly wiles. Remarkable, at the end of each gobfest International conference, all the great and the good ever so patiently wait for the team photo op, gentlemen gathered in ranks, on she walks,
"pardonnez moi, est-ce le temps, je ne suis pas en retard, suis je?"
sashayed gait, to take her seat right on centre stage, middle of the front bench.........you just couldn't ever miss her.
Ah, and was that some ever so faint reek of pungent hypocrisy?
And the IMF - who dey?
Only one reason for the U K to leave the E U
Look at how Non E U Switzerland is doing so well.
She looks like a bloke to me.
Dung, you are quite correct. The best way to create space within Europe for all the Middle Eastern refugees, would be to deport all EU afficianados to Syria.
This would solve two of Europe's big issues about homelessness.
BREXIT - THE SCARY FACTS
Brilliant! I laughed so loudly! Excellent bit of micky taking!
The very fact that all the usual subjects, LibLabCon, Banks, the IMF etc etc want us to stay in should be enough warning that we need to get out.
Also I have yet to hear ONE positive from the "Remain" campaign about why it is to our advantage to stay.
No more UUSSR! Vote Brexit!
BREXIT THE MOVIE released! I helped to crowd fund it. Did you?
What no-one of a Brexit persuasion seems to be picking up on is this: David Cameron states EVERY TIME he speaks, that we should stay in a 'REFORMED' EU.....
Er - the EU is about to be REFORMED..?
News to me.....
I am ashamed that I did not help fund it but I did watch it and its bloody good!

We have a referendum debate in the 'Discussion Section' ^.^
"When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds which have connected them with another..."
Declarations of Independence are hard to enforce. Be prepared for retaliation, both internal and external.
The biggest war the USA was ever in happened when one bunch of states wanted to leave the Union.
Unions just don't like quitterspaint your head blue, put your gumshield in and hide under the table.
The Martin Durkin film is fantastic and like you, I'd recommend everyone put an hour aside to watch it.
I'm not from the UK but how any UK voter would want to stay in the EU is beyond me , except those that have an obvious vested interest.
Also I think the parallels of the politics surrounding the EU membership and the AGW/IPCC politics are stricking.
The World Bank, the IMF, the OECD etc etc all oppose Brexit.
In other words, a bunch of unaccountable supranational organisations of questionable utility are urging the UK not to quit another unaccountable supranational organisation of questionable utility.
No surprise, there, then.
You really should make more effort to keep up with the news. The EU has already been reformed. Haven't you heard about the triumphal conclusion to David Cameron's renegotiation of our relationship with the EU?
When the referendum takes place I hope the British electorate will show David Cameron the exact amount of gratitude that his efforts on our behalf deserve!
Roy - thank you so much for pointing out my poor grasp of current news.
I forgot the impressive list of concessions (or, as Boris colourfully decribed them - 'two-thirds of diddley squat'...) which David Cameron wrestled from the bureaucrats in Brussells - none of which will be ratified (or not) by the European Parliament until after the EU Referendum...
I must make more of an effort to keep up....
We live in interesting times - fascinating to watch!
Energy Minister v Energy Secretary
"The lights could go out in Britain if we STAY IN the European Union, warns energy minister Andrea Leadsom • EU plans would force UK to gain permission before agreeing new gas deals• It could also legally bind Britain into guaranteeing the energy supply of other EU member states• The plans are set out in the European Commission's 'Winter Package'• Leadsom dismisses warnings by her boss - Energy Secretary Amber Rudd "

Madame Lagarde has a small cameo role in the excellent film Too Big to Fail, when her character berates Hank Paulson for letting Lehman go to the wall. Tells you a lot about her morality.
Smithy-Smithy didn't include enough:
"When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world."
This is followed by list of 26 serious grievances - serious enough that armed conflict had erupted around Boston. I'll follow the other links to see how the reasoning compares.
La Fontaine renewed.Guardian of the flock...
Remarkable that the US constitution was taken from what was then our own constitution, by taking those rights away from us, government over many, many years in the UK has indeed given us the right to cast off the EU and those who put us there.
Are we witnessing the death of climate denialism?
So sorry,Must report your former devoted minions are now on strikeAbused they feel
Ayla & Alan Kendall,
it is the undeniable right of any climate scientist to deny the rights of anyone else to deny the truth of any word they say.
Before Mann fabricated his Holy Hockey Stick, the climate was flat and calm. The turmoil was started when man invented fire, and learned how to barbecue the largest herbivorous dinosaurs. The climate has been disturbed ever since, by surplus heat, and excessive clouds of toxic wind. That is the truth, and don't try to deny it.
UK M2 money supply took a sharp dip in March
Declining by 42 billion Sterling.
See trading economics website( if you observe the 10 year chart the current dip looks very like the Spring 2008 event)
The banking system is most likely engineering a domestic UK "liquidity event" so as to achieve a political objective.
The only effective resistance of bank social and economic experiments have been agrarians who in extremis can live off the land without money.
I am afraid those days are long gone for most....especially in densely populated urban UK.
Ireland is the canary in the scarcity mine as it in the nexus between the Anglo and Euro pits of despair. )
The IEA energy data is showing very confusing and dramatic energy consumption metrics in Ireland.
Nat gas consumption has declined by a gigantic 30% ( relative to the same period last year) in the peak consumption months of Jan and Feb yet electricity production is at a all time high during the same period!!! This is not really as a result of renewables.Fossil fuel consumption is up 20% in the electricity sector! during Jan and Feb.(fossil fuel use forms 70% of total Irish electricity production in this period )
For these statistics to make sense Moneypoint coal station and the couple of peat stations must be running 24 / 7 with most of the gas stations running idle.To provide context the gas electric power plant capacity in Ireland is perhaps the biggest % of total in Europe Source IEA monthly gas and electricity reports for the months Jan and Feb.
Can the energy matters website explain these weird figures. I have my doubts.The energy sector in Ireland is a black hole of information.A highly secretive cabal of cooperating monopolies.
I thought it was U.S. Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards hungrily looking for baby parts.
I am also in favor of this film was publicized on the big video sites.
