touché  🤣😂😁

I changed my mind in a bank the other day, and no one gave a toss🤫 But everyone noticed the drunken man changing his pants in the corner by the coffee machine!🤔 I stood behind a lady in a bank a few months ago, I tapped her on her on the shoulder and asked 'excuse me, this IS the sperm bank isn't it'?🤔 She turned around, her lips were tightly close and her cheeks were puffed out like a hamster, but, she did nod, enthusiastically!😳

Last night GB Headliners showed this story on one of the front pages, which was followed by the Nigel Farage show itself, where he talked about this banking story and said ...

 

NF; "They're doing this to me, will they do it to you too?"

 

NF; "They could do it to anyone if they don't like your political views"

 

NF; "Very pleased to be joined here by Norman Lamont, ex chancellor of the exchequer"

 

NL; "It seems to me that you have a right to a bank account"

 

NL; "People have got different views, on Brexit, Djokovic and the anti vax  ( he gave 3 different examples  ) ... "

 

______

 

Old Nige sure seems to be preparing the people for the future, a bit like I think Tucker Carlson was doing? 

 

I've looked at Farage as controlled opposition ever since the Brexit vote and his sudden leaving. He is seen as, or should I say marketed as, a man of the people because he likes a pint. 

 

This is from wiki; After the vote to leave the EU, Farage resigned as leader of UKIP, triggering a leadership election, but remained as an MEP. In December 2018, Farage stood down from UKIP. He returned to frontline politics by launching the Brexit Party in 2019 (Which is now called Reform)

 

I used to like him because he says some of the 'right' thing but of course that's the bloody job of controlled opposition. I also started to notice what he doesn't say. I was waiting for him to show some resistance to Convid for instance but I wasn't aware that he said anything much till what I would call fairly recently, or too late? I keep meaning to check on that to see what he did say in 2020, even 2021 perhaps. 

 

I dont know what he said but at the time I wasn't aware of anything at all? Almost like where is that loudmouth when we need him? Maybe I'm wrong on that because by then I'd made up my mind on him, so that can make a person a bit blind and deaf ...

 

And just one more thing 😄 sometimes he has what sounds like a fake laugh? A laugh that's out of place in the conversation / interview. But anyway ... 😆

It's noticible to me that it's Coutts bank.

 

This looks like an advert to me, along with everything else!

 

It always used to be referred to as the Queen's bank. 

 

A few cuts off the net ...

 

1) Coutts had enjoyed a reputation as the country's most exclusive bank, promising unrivalled personal service. The institution has catered for the Royal Family since 1692 and in recent decades encouraged "new money". The Beatles, Sting, Queen and more recently the Spice Girls are understood to have opened accounts there.4 Feb 2001

 

2) We not only provide priority access and benefits at the world's best restaurants, our specialists can recommend local gems worth a visit in some of the world's most popular destinations. We can secure tickets to the best music, sporting and theatre events as well, and even offer access to our own suite at London's O2

 

3) Our parent company NatWest Group plans for its business operations, including here at Coutts, to be 'climate positive' by 2025.

 

I just realised that if you're not climate positive (or happy and bright and gay) you might not have a bank account one day.

 

Cash is King.

I can't help but be interested in the talking heads on the radio. Sucker for punishment!

This is the new flavour of the week headline story. 

 

😳 What was the last one? 😆 uh, anyway ... 😉 

 

GB and Talk radio are talking about the social credit system and what happens of your bank sees you are buying something from somebody they don't like. 

 

Made me think that if you buy something from a company who hasn't ticked all the latest green boxes then .... exactly! 

 

Also interesting is that a few people have said things like 

 

The banks shouldn't be allowed 

The government should tell them / stop them / make them ....

 

"Who are they to tell us what to do that's not their job"

 

Dear oh dear !?

 

Who do they think pulls all strings, and decides who can't get a loan because they're not green enough ... 

 

Yes the banks are in control 

 

When it was about Liz Truss they said "the markets don't like it" ...

 

Meanwhile it's still a great advert for the bank.

BBC presenter Chris Packham doesn't want Farage to be given a voice. On Twitter he wrote:

"Can @BBCNews please explain why it still gives valuable news-space to Nigel Farage ? According to @Wikipedia he is a former this and that and currently only a ‘broadcaster’ on GB News. Frankly I don’t care if @Tesco
withdraw his clubcard let alone some vanity spat about his money."
 
Packham would rather the MSM give more attention to man-made climate change.

of course this could be a set up ....so they can push the CBDC ( central bank digital currency )then claim everybody will have a right to one  of those accounts and can`t be closed etc 

 

This is part of what I sence about this. It does seem strange that this is such huge news, anything that dominates the headlines is suspicious. 'We' just don't normally get huge campaigns about our rights. 

 

Tonight David Davis said that 'we can't function without a bank account'. He also said "it's a commodity like water."

 

He always crops up to spin the latest narrative?

 

I have heard of peoples building society accounts being closed when they've got a few pounds and haven't used the account for a long time. I think they just send you a cheque? 

 

A few days ago a lady mentioned to me about pensioners having to have their pension paid into a bank account, and so they miss out on going to collect their money. I've noticed that myself.

Mike Graham said none of us knew that peoples accounts were being closed. That's just a ridiculous thing for a topical presenter to say. I mean what about Canada for starters? Also there seems to be an agenda to get shot of the CEO of Coutts? What have they got planned for her?

More "established narrative" from Wiki then. Farage did not start or launch the Brexit Party. It was originally founded by ex-UKIP member Catherine Blaiklock, who was its first leader. After leaving UKIP himself, Farage was interested in becoming involved with the new party, but clearly this egotist wouldn't settle for playing some second-fiddle bit-part role.

 

He got his wish when some tweets or posts made by Blaiklock were 'uncovered', which were deemed 'anti-Islam' or racist, or something considered 'offensive' and so she was forced to step down as party leader, and thus Farage 'bravely stepped up' to become leader.

 

He did not set up or launch the Brexit Party, it was just another vehicle that he 'hijacked' for his own personal gain (as happened with UKIP). Notably after securing his seat as an MEP at the European Parliament, the Brexit Party did not go on to enjoy any further electoral success in the UK. After the UK left the EU, Farage then left the Brexit Party to further his broadcasting career, and handed the reins to Richard Tice, who oversaw the 'rebranding' of the party to 'Reform', who have since acheived little of note.

So we have Nigel Farage, recipient of the keys to The City Of London several years ago courtesy of his financial mates, now involved in a re-shaping of the Banking community.

 

Not really about free speech anymore, hmmm.

 

More like an inside job.

 

I can't find it now, but I briefly saw something the other day that said that Farage's actions caused some of his 'investor friends' to make a profit by betting against NatWest shares/stocks, or something along those lines.

 

Reminded me very much of what happened prior to the referendum result being announced - he went on TV to 'admit defeat' which sent the stock market buoyant briefly, then the actual result was announced... some of his hedge-fund investor buddies made a bit of a killing that morning apparently.

 

Whatever this "man of the people" does, you can bet that he has hedge-fund investors ready to pounce and make huge sums of money on the back of it.

 

He may have got an apology from the BBC, and from Coutts Bank, but I still think this is all a set-up somehow.

 

Also interestingly I note he has been promoting a new website 'accountclosed.org'. I tried to have a look at it yesterday but it didn't seem to be working.

 

It's working now, however it is clearly some rushed-together Wix-powered effort, as there is very little content or details about this 'campaign group', ie what their aims are, who is involved etc. I suspect it is nothing more than another data-harvesting effort, they just want your email address so they can send you 'marketing communications', ie add you to a spam list and send you all sorts of 'get rich quick' schemes.

 

The domain's Whois details triggered my suspicion:

https://www.whois.com/whois/accountclosed.org

 

The domain name was only registered on 26th July (last Wednesday), and while details of the registrant are redacted for privacy reasons, it does show they are based in Ontario, Canada.

 

It all looks very suspect to me, and I don't believe this is a genuine organisation with good intentions, so I won't be handing them my email address.

In a nutshell, I reckon.

What data? There's a few 'loaded' questions to say yes or no to, then enter your email address.

 

There's something going on here, and I smell bullshit.

I can't understand why people don't understand the very simple principle: VOTE WITH YOUR FEET

 

Why anyone would still be banking with any of those banks that defrauded the public in the 2008 credit crunch is a mystery to me. Why support a criminal enterprise with your money?

 

How you spend your money IS activism because what you give your money to you give power to

 

If a bank are dicks then take your money and leave them to fail and go and bank with someone responsible instead. This can be applied to EVERYTHING in your life

Another point this highlights is when you trace back who owns these banks, many of them are little more than trading names for other interests. Coutts bank for  is owned by Natwest, who are 42% owned by the British govt. 

We used to have a good number of mutually owned building societies until it was decided that many of them should be privatised for a short-term payout to their members, but how many of those privatised societies still exist as independent banks now? I can't think of any, they all got swallowed up by the big sharks.

Sharing this twice as I think it's an interesting insight to the club;

 

The Mail Newspaper 

 

Nigel Farage fever sweeps Tory conference as he poses for selfies with adoring activists - but says 'no, no, no' to rejoining the party after it raised tax burden to 70-year high


They  duetted on Frank Sinatra's I Love You Baby, hours after he backed Liz Truss

 

Mr Farage is at the conference for the first time in a decade - albeit on a media pass in his capacity as a GB News commentator - 30 years after he quit in protest at the Maastricht Treaty. 

 

He has been given a rapturous reception by the Tory faithful, and was filmed dancing energetically with Priti Patel to Frankie Valli's Can't Take My Eyes Off You.

 

The warmth of members towards Mr Farage has been noted by senior Conservatives, who compared his star quality to that of Boris Johnson. 

 

 A former Cabinet minister told MailOnline he would 'easily win a Tory leadership election if he made it to the membership'.

 

Asked during broadcast interviews today whether Mr Farage would be allowed back into the fold, Mr Sunak said: 'Look, the Tory party is a broad church.

 

'I welcome lots of people who want to subscribe to our ideals, to our values.'

Pressed whether that extended to Mr Farage, the PM said: 'Look the thing I care about is delivering for the country and the more people as we've seen at this conference - we've had record attendance I think at this conference. Lots of energy, lots of engagement.'

Wait what, I thought Nige was the leader of another party, Brexit or Reform or something? I can't keep up.

 

Just checked his wiki and he's the honorary president and founder of Reform UK (prev Brexit party). And now he's cosying up with a rival political party? Which he's only not joining because of tax rates?  

 

Note to self, this story is from the msm so sprinkle liberally with salt.
