Fury at Bank Tax Terror Burial Horror

True to its leaders' New Labour instincts, the Government has used today's parliamentary referendum on lying to the electorate as a means of burying some rather bad news.

The draft Finance Bill for next year includes plans to tax British bankers at a staggering five hundredths of one per cent, rising to a horrifying seventy-five thousandths of one per cent after the first year.

This constitutes an increase on the original proposals of a wallet-watering one-hundredth of one per cent in the first year, and a bonus-buggering five-thousandths of one per cent in subsequent years.

A spokesbeing for the Treasury said the new levy would ensure that banks "make a fair contribution in respect of the potential risks they pose to the UK financial system and wider economy", just like students, nurses, teachers, the chronically unwell, people in the north and other wastrels.

The "final scheme design", or Act of Parliament as it would have been known in former days, would also "encourage" the banks to give up gambling, the spokesbeing continued.

Although no bankers marched on Parliament or defamed innocent policemen with malicious heart attacks, the British Bankers' Association expressed concern.

"We believe that urgent steps are required to prevent the multiple charging of bank levies on multinational banks," a spokesspiv said. Failure to act swiftly, he said, would do even more damage to Britain's reputation as a global financial centre than the bankers had done on their own.

The Government defended the levy by pointing out that the poorest lenders (those with a balance of £20 billion or less) will be exempt.

Meanwhile, regarding bonuses, the Chancellor sent a message of almost Anglican firmness and resolve via the journalists at a Westminster lunch.

"My message is very simple," the Chancellor said: "reflect upon the economic situation that this country is in; reflect upon the fact that many different parts of our country are having to accept some difficult decisions; look around you and the world you live in before you make your decisions on bonuses."

Britain's chief banking executives are thought to be so concerned about Britain's reputation as a global financial centre that they plan to award themselves an extra £15 million. How far this is the product of sober reflection about difficult choices for lesser mortals has not been reliably gauged.

    The Gods send clues about this situation frequently.
    Eddie of Iron Maiden.
    Closure of Fitsgeralds Reno/getting kicked out of Fits LV 1990 for "counting cards" after 5 minutes and $20:::Accusation of the innocent.
    WWII's other holocaust:::Unit 731:::tsushogo. Tsushogo was a clue from the Gods illustrating their positioning long before it began. Incidentally, the used it to hurt the Chinese and position against future Japanese sucess by burying their atrocities.
    The Concorde.
    More below::The Gods have created an endless list over the last four+ decades. This Situation is a monster.

    Never forget::The Gods have created positioning to conceal their true intent in each and every dyanmic we see in society.
    We truely live in The Matrix:::There is the way things look and there is the God's REAL reason for doing things.

    Employment charity:::Was W able to do his job as President?
    I suspect there are many frat-boy types who could not or would rather not have studied nor do the work necessary so they gained this "benefit" telepathically. This could have been extended to their professional life as well::In most of these cases they don't have what it takes to do their jobs.
    I think employment charity is FAR more common than people may believe.
    Another example how they tempted people in this manner is the procurement of sexual relations.
    Consistant with The Matrix, the Gods positioned both to these people which gained their confidence. But what they don't know is this behavior actually hurts them::They were offered temptation and they fell for it. And one day, if they are to have a future, they will be punished.
    Keep raping these poor girls. You're going to end up as one in your next life.

    Capitalism is evil because of the exploitative nature, illustrated with this Situation.
    Muslims are correct:::Earning interest is evil.
    Unlike war, which is a temporary period where the citiens incurr evil due to the decisions of the leaders, capitalism by its very nature incurrs evil for those who participate into perpetuity, an "institutional" method of incurring evil for the disfavored who engage in it. Inherant in earning interest is the exploitation of others, capitalizing on assets and exploiting the workforce for profit.
    Understand the destructive nature of this element of evil we call the United States, for it spreads this cancer under the guise of "democracy" throughout the world.
    Look for other institutional evil as related to the United States because as the land of disfavor castoff rejects there will be plenty of examples.

    Examine my examples. They illustrate the God's reverse positioning used to confuse and disceive people who have made big mistakes in past lives.
    I illustrate a certain way to think. If you doubt what I teach, if this is not your time to learn please at least completely understand this way of thinking, because when your time does come you will be able to refer to it and you will begin to see the God's pattern within the context of their positioning.
    Nobody is going to save you. Christianity is a lie. And only through thinking correctly will you have a real chance to begin doing the right things.

    That's f*cking wierd.

    I googled 'Tsushogo' to see what it was, if anything, and it turns out the same comment, in various forms, has been posted at quite a few places. The only conclusion that I could reach was that the comments are the ravings of someone genuinely insane.

    Phillip, check out the full version here...

    I think you'll find some inspiration for your next book.

    Thanks for that bit of research which, if nothing else, has taught me once and for all that abridgement is not necessarily a Bad Thing.
