2nd week in Lubeck 2013 009

I hope to go and see this next week! Two weeks ago we had snow and the man made duck pond across the street was frozen over and for the first time in my life I put on Skating shoes and had a go at ice skating. This of course was free but at the same time we have in the town’s centre a commercial ice skating ring, the town’s council has allowed this for a few weeks I believe! The skating ring is always very busy and is full of teens and I wouldn’t want to get in the way of any of them I would be run down without mercy. It still looks great fun though!


WHAT DOES YOUR HOME MEAN TO YOU?

Your Home, your Emotional Wellbeing and Security, that is what the Courts affect when they facilitate the Banks by ruling in their favour at repossession hearings, in almost 100% of cases the entire merits of the case are decided on three simple questions,

  1. Did the borrower, borrow the money?
  2. Is the Borrower making payments?
  3. If not, when was the last payment made?

That is it in a nutshell, the process is started by the Bank’s with the sole objective of steering the Court proceedings to a point where the Borrower is either not present or stands in the intimidating environment of the Court, alone, unprepared and unrepresented. There is not a snowball’s chance in hell of the outcome being anything other than the Borrower losing their home.

The Judge will not consider any evidence, motion or pleading which is not presented to him in a certain fashion which complies with the Court rules, so hope on the part of a borrower is non-existent.

Now we must consider the Bank, which is applying to the court for an order to take the home from the distressed Borrower, the very Bank which was complicit in creating the conditions which gave rise to the domino effect of degenerating personal finances and eventual inability to pay that culminated in the Borrower being in Court

Thanks to our friends over at  http://www.wealthbuilder.ie/ we are able to bring their market brief to you .

Prime Minister David Cameron stalls the “European Project”:

Late last month one of the most important speeches on Europe ever  made by a British Prime was presented by David Cameron to a central London audience at an event hosted by Bloomberg. The speech sent shock-waves throughout the European establishment.Salient excerpts are quoted below courtesy of  “The Independent.co.uk”.In essence, Mr. Cameron argued that Europe was not working and that it must change. To achieve the changes required he announced that Great Britain would renegotiate the totality of its relationship with the European Union. Following this renegotiation he proposed that should a Conservative Government be re- elected circa 2015 it would present a referendum to the British people. Should the people of Britain elect to do so, Britain would leave the union.  Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny, who currently heads the European Presidency, stated that if this proposition came to fruition “it would be a “catastrophe”.

Many who were expecting the speech and were somewhat prepared were still astonished at  Cameron’s bold proposal that Britain might actually walk away from the EU.Mature observers are of the view that there is no real crisis. They say that the possibility of the Conservative Party actually winning the next British general election are remote. Therefore they reckon the proposed referendum will never see the light of day. I am not so sure crisis wise as I believe the law of “unintended consequences” may begin to apply.

At the very least the fact that Britain wishes to withdraw powers from Europe means that for the next two years, while Cameron is in power, the whole European integration process will be thrown into abeyance. Given that he refuses to countenance any further abrogation of English power to Brussels he has basically placed the whole of Euroland  “on hold”. Will Germany and France stand for this and allow any renegotiation? I don’t think so. The EU commission has no structure or mandate in place to execute such renegotiation. Thus from the get-go nobody in Europe actually knows how the British Prime Minister plans to proceed. This is where I see the problem. As Britain digs its heels in, to manipulate renegotiation, the rest of the Union may go on its merry way introducing new legislation. If Cameron is forced to veto such action the tensions within the Council of Ministers will rise. If the management of the European Union becomes more and more dysfunctional. Britain leaving the Union may become a self-fulfilling prophesy.

For Ireland the British position is particularly unwelcome. Ireland shares a border with England.  The English market is the largest single Irish export destination. Should Britain actually leave the EU it is difficult to see how Ireland could stay within the European fold. Yet one of the main reasons why Ireland is the location of choice for many American multi-nationals is due of its central place within Europe.  Prime Minister Kenny will  have his work cut out over the next two years trying to balance this conundrum.

All in all Mr. Cameron’s speech has certainly thrown “the cat among the pigeons”. It appears that rather than getting its “act together” the European Project is becoming more and more…………………………..
