Where the food is ugly and the women taste badly.
OT but interesting:
Excellent. My truck will be backing up in januari. Please keep up the efforts and continue the fairy tale please?
Really... I'm all for correct information, but if people still believe this shit, they WANT to believe it.
Financial death becomes then financial suïcide. Not my problem.
well, shit that didn't take long. So the shoeshine boy is gonna say sell gold now?
Jamie & Lloyd: Amerika's Shoeshine Boys
If it wasn't for fraud and theft as Wall Street's business model... Jamie 'n Lloyd would be shining shoes...
Gimme a shine, Jamie...
Both UK and France will be downgraded, though for very different reasons. It is also irrelevant, at least in the case of the UK, until after Eurozone breakup and the short/medium-term consequences!
I was under the impression (too drunk to look it up now) that the UK's debt is of much longer maturity... that must count for something.
It's having to roll over the short-duration debt that's crushing the PIIGS, is it not?
The longer maturity on UK debt is a factor, but I would say it's less important than the demonstrated willingness of the BoE to print, print, print, as compared to the ECB's reluctance. The weakness of the UK position will manifest itself in high inflation, not a default, and that's beyond the remit of the ratings agencies, who explicitly judge only the likelihood of a "credit event".
Between the devil and the deep blue sea, it may be best to stick with Norway.
Time will tell. Gold at 700 is a possibility. Lots of real wealth lost in that event.
Ze Celts, William ze Conquerer and ze Anglos and ze Saxons had it all wrong. They should've stayed away from Barbaria!
IMHO it is unlikely that we'll see serious shortage of money as long as socialist Euro-democracies exist.. I remain long PMs and miners, in fact I added to my positions 2 days ago.
I expect some kind of QE in the US by end of January.
Hhmm. Wonder if their stats are any less manipulated than ours?
Desolee monsieur Cameron, mister Noyer is right.
Osborne 0 : 1 Noyer
So this is what we have become asking ourselves "whose shit smells better". All of us are swimming in shit. Relax and enjoy the implosion whereever you are.
Much easier choice..
I love it.
To borrow from a favorite saying: A battle to be the best looking horse at the glue factory.
Goldman did the biggest manipulation of all times with Greece.
HH, that is completely disgusting.
Which one? Cuisine Anglais like spotted dick (below), or cunnilingus anglais?
That is NOT spotted dick, aka rolly poley pudding...looks like cake with custard.....God damn..if we can't have truth in pudding, then fuktus cactus we truely are....
...yet, maybe there are some areas where it is better to not claim expertise? At least you did not say, "That is NOT true...Winehouse snatch tastes like butterscotch!"
bread pudding; a claimed speciality by jamaicans, brummies, welsh...
creme anglais done proper-like is a real nice sauce
UK macro numbers look a bit worse (both are fucked up), but consider the following:
-Cost of aiding your Euro neighbours: 2-3 Trillion Euro
-Having your own currency and the ability to monetize your debt: Priceless
The Eurozone can monetize there debt they just havent done it yet.
But France isn't the Eurozone, and the Germans really don't like the idea of monetization. We know the BoE will print if it feels slightly bored on a Thursday lunchtime; the ECB, not so much.
the argument of the currency devaluation being better than default on debt makes little sense, like two drunks arguing who is going to have worse hangover tommorow. They are both the same thing, as both british and french people are going to find out more or less at the same time.
Germany? Meh, I give up!
The Three Stooges seems appropriate.
Mo seems like Germany, Larry is France and Curley is Great Britain.
(From RESTLESS NIGHTS)
LARRY: All for one!
MOE: One for All
CURLEY: Every man for himself!
Let's see the US of A for comparison, oh wait forgot we are comparing AAA nations.
Who is worse? The UK, of course. Those snobs don't know how to cooperate with anyone until you threaten to remove their genitals. There is no reason for them to have anything to say about it anyway, since they refused to join the euro in the first place.
Sorry, it's in our nature. We've been doing it for the last 600 years or so. Europe has constantly been trying to force their ways upon us, but we have the best "don't take no shit" attitude in Europe, so that has never happened.
And when you get into a jam with that attitude, you could always come crying to the US.
Well, 300 years ago the US was British, and today you have inherited that trait of the British culture - the US don't take shit either.
the UK: where white people have so little balls that they strip down when black people riot.
Where is Napier's "cultural sensitivity" program when you need it?
@ RMolineaux - Putain!
Concorde & Eurotunnel?
It is probable that Noyer knows exactly what the true situation is, but like all central bankers, he makes these statements in an attempt to reassure the public. The French public, understandably, has a built in skeptism about anything the conceited Brits have to say.

The UK has it's own Sterling-France is using something called EURO... ça c'est la différence..
no because if one goes so do them all
They both look like shit
Definitely the UK. Take away the fraudelent City of London and what's left? At least the French have some industrial companies and wine and cheese. What does England export exactly? I can't believe their current account is in balance. Must be something fishy there ...
and Haggis. Which more than cancels the Scotch.
"Haggis is a dish containing sheep's 'pluck' (heart, liver and lungs), minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with stock, and traditionally simmered in the animal's stomach for approximately three hours"
