The aristocrats grow arrogant

It's rather shocking to see a banker openly defy a head of government in this manner:
The Governor of the Bank of England last night issued an extraordinary warning to Theresa May to stop telling him how to do his job. In an unprecedented intervention, Mark Carney hit back angrily at the Prime Minister’s claim this month that his policies had damaged the interests of savers, pensioners and the young. And he stressed he would resist any interference from Mrs May in setting interest rates or monetary policy.

‘Politicians have done a very good job of setting up the system,’ he said. ‘Where it can be difficult sometimes is if there are political comments on our policies as opposed to political comments on our objectives. 'The objectives are what are set by the politicians. The policies are done by technocrats. We are not going to take instruction on our policies from the political side.’
The bankers are not going to take instruction from the political side? I would expect they're going to find out pretty soon that the people are not going to take much more of this devastating rule-by-banker, given how destructive their policies that relentlessly favor the .01 percent are to everyone else.

Her majesty will not be amused. Neither will May, and she's shown some facility with a rhetorical shiv.

Easy to deal with. Have security forces go over him with a fine tooth comb. Charge him accordingly. At some stage he'll have broken some law, no matter how obscure.

For example. In Australia there is a law that if you don't have any physical cash on you you can be arrested as a vagrant. Sure, the Police don't enforce it but it's still a law and you can still be arrested for it.

Failing that, he could always commit suicide by shooting himself twice in the back of the head with his hands tied behind his back.

Methinks the rabbit warren is deeper than this. From memory the City of London is where a Bank of London is domiciled. In the City a mere Queen walks behind a Lord Mayor. If this is right and City of London is like a non state Washington D.C. or like a Vatican City, it was all a legalese slight of hand. I kind of believe the Bank is a privately owned autonomous entity in a privately own other realm. Any legislation about it is mere window dressing. A charade to keep the masses mindless.

A pound is not a document redeemable for one pound of Sterling Silver.

Things went strange at Jekyll Island or Roosevelt's new deal didn't they?

Be more worried that George Soros is purported to own the voting machines in 16 states.

The physical resurrection kills relativism.

Technocrats believe in their pomp, ceremony, pageants, galas, media releases, feigned disapprovals, because the theatre makes them look like the real deal. It makes their paper look valuable.

It is amazing how these silly people (who imagine themselves our masters) don't understand how we work. It's simple: since they've demonstrated that the rule of law does not apply to them, then it does not apply to us.

The part that confuses them is where they're sociopaths who think that what matters is what you can get away with. They simultaneously cannot comprehend why we would follow laws in the first place, nor why we would stop.

Speaking of banker elites, I was thinking about the Rothchilds. I know that dead horse, I know...

The founder Mayer Amschel Rothchild did the cousin marriage thing with his descendants. That was banned for Christians. That goes back to your kinship rule you posted about earlier.

http://www.jta.org/1934/09/16/archive/rothschilds-married-cousins

Also that might be behind the Elites currently trying to push the incest ban away. "It's not that weird. See it worked for us."

Also notice the heavy rate of cousin marriage in Muslim countries. Another Semitic connection there between Jews and Muslims.

Jumpin' Jews for Jesus it fits.

@8: Icicle: It's not working for the Asians (read: Pakistani) in England. The rate of birth defects among this group is off the charts due to their practice of sending teens back to the homeland, where they marry a cousin, thus allowing another branch of the family to migrate to England.

Brit health authorities have known about this for many years, but will not speak out for fear of being called racist, and/or a desire to protect the poor Asians from the shaming consequences.

Never underestimate the ability of leftist apparatchiks to plug their ears, cover their eyes and shout LA LA LA LA to avoid the truth. The police and media in Sweden will do this out of fear that reporting the truth will help the one party that opposes immigration, thus sacrificing their own daughters to the horde.

Central Bankers are modern day alchemists. Only difference is they've been able to force the plebes to accept their gold painted turds as viable currency thanks to the guns of govt. But lest they forget, at some point the masses will get sick of the swindle and will revolt and when they do the same apparatus that forced everyone to accept their script will be used against them.
But they probably figure their bunkers and robotic warriors will save them.

In order to properly administer justice for the aftermath of their policies we need a proper test to determine if they were willingly complicit or just ignorant.

I say we strap 50kg of weight to them and toss them in a pond. If they float they were complicit, if they sink they were just ignorant.

Carney's your standard globalist arse.

Now the irony is that modeen central bank insanity is the last thing holding the empire together (albeit at the cost of worse outcomes in the future) so it would be very funny to see an English Prime Minister sacking a colonial banker and declaring Britain's independence ...

Theresa May is turning out better than I expected. When the pro-EU folks call her a "hard Brexiteer" that's a good sign.

Theresa May's point about the central bank's policies is correct. Quantitative easing and low interest rates redistribute wealth from the middle and lower classes to the 1 percent.
See this article for example:
http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-10-22/central-banker-admits-central-bank-policy-leads-wealth-inequality

Theresa May might yet turn out to be one of the greatest British Prime Ministers.

What percentile of the general public even understands that there has been nothing but government of the banks, by the banks, and for the banks since 1815 in the UK? Theresa May will likely obey their orders and refuse to actually leave the EUSSR. Note that it wasn't Farage who ended up as PM, but the Merkel-clone Theresa May, who opposed Brexit.

Only if she actually refuses to obey the orders of the bankster-oligarchy, which is highly unlikely given their level of control over the entire government.

The status quo works until it doesn't.

When it doesn't, heads roll down the Champs-Elysees thanks to the National Razor.

OTOH, I'm not sure the nations, the peoples and volks, are going to win this one. The peoples have lost to existential transnational empire before. Such losses are never forever, but they can endure for a good long time. The peoples who are dissolving into the background supersaturated solution called population, new peoples precipitating out in due time.

Arguably the Han exist because the peoples (plural) of China were forced into one existential transnational empire under Qin Shi Huangdi, and the assimilation of the multiple peoples into one people (singular) remains imperfect to this day, 2000 years later.

Existential Empire in the sense of Augustine's City of God, the permanent good and universal regime, not that any human immanentization ever achieves permanence or actual good.

Incorrect. Up to now it has not been "rule-by-banker", it's been a highly regulated industry (banking) being dictated to by fools in any given government. This first, verbal pushback by this particular bank is only the first. It's a natural evolution that's been setting up for years with corporations eventually being powerful enough to tell politicians to shut up. The market decides, remember. Futurists & Scifi novelists have been predicting this for many, many years.

I agree and will add that since they have found that they can avoid man's law, they think they can also avoid natural law.

They never understood their fellow humans in the first place, why anyone would follow any law that he could get away with breaking; they don't even understand why laws exist, except to torment little people with. So they will be particularly confused when the People who used to follow the Law because it was the right thing to do, cease to do so precisely because those high-functioning sociopaths in high finance have proven that Justice sees kinds, and partiality destroys the Law's moral power.

regulation doesn't serve much purpose when the purported regulating agency has been captured BY the entity it's supposed to be in control of, you know?

the entire point of pathological personalities is that the deploy faux anger ( or other emotion ) in a display intended to manipulate others.

that's the whole gimmick with Feminists; they scream offense at some absurd bullshit and the simple fact that they're screaming somehow REQUIRES that action be taken.

Vox, you know well that Central Banks are supposed to be set up this way - politicians are supposed to set objectives, then keep hands off. Within the rules, Carney is right. He is not being insubordinate.

Whether one thinks central banks should exist in this way (or any other) is a different question.

Whether May can burn the Brexit-scaring bank governor to popular applause, using the reality of politics rather than the rules, is also another question. It would probably be a good idea for her to do so.

Actually, that sounds like it is working PERFECTLY. Exchange a few birth defects (paid for by the taxpayer of course) to let the rest migrate.

An act passed by the Blair government (Bank of England Act 1998) grants "operational independence" to the Bank of England, meaning that politicians cannot give the Bank direct instructions as distinct from setting general policy. It is a requirement of membership of the European Union (Article 108 of the Treaty establishing the European Community) that central banks shall be independent in this sense. Therefore, the act of 1997 can only be repealed once Brexit has taken place. I suspect Carney of being a closet remainer who wants to reverse the verdict of the EU referendum.
