Duchess of York tells Oprah Winfrey Show: “I felt pointless, worthless and disgusting”

Telegraph: Beautiful, but troubled ex-royal, Sarah Ferguson, in a ‘tell all’ session for the Oprah Winfrey Show which she is taking part in to raise cash to pay off her not too insignificant debts, said that recent events in her life, including the break-up with her husband, left her feeling: “..emotionally bankrupt…worthless..unlovable… and pointless”.

The shocked Oprah Winfrey Show audience listened intently as the Duchess went on to explain how she was left scarred by the treatment she received at the hands of her mother, Susan Barrantes (now deceased): “I looked in the mirror this morning and went…well, no wonder no one loves you – you are so disgusting.'”

The Duchess’ poignant revelations are part of a six-part documentary series for US version of the Opera Winfrey Show where she is shown in a therapy session. The show, named Finding Sarah, Prince Andrew’s former wife revealed that she suffered systemic abuse at the hands of her mother, who once called her ‘the anti-Christ’.

In the show, the Duchess proclaims her love for her children and  and also her deepest affection for her ex-husband, the Duke of York, who she said has always been a true friend.

The show is attracting good viewings in the USA.

As your lifelong fan,  I wish you, Sarah, the very  best of luck.  You are beautiful, definitely not disgusting, or pointless, unlike some of the other royals whose names escape me for the moment. Best wishes for the show!

European Union’s own public expenditure goes up by a staggering 5% in 2012 whilst it orders member states to put theirs in reverse

[Tammy Jones, UK Financial News Contributor]

In a gesture, breathtaking by its sheer slime-oozing texture, MailOnline reports that UK Tax Minister, George Osborne, joined the ranks of the EU slithering elite which are bringing the economy of Britain to a shuddering halt, by pronouncing that the government’s austerity measures imposed by the IMF and the EU in return for the country’s bailout loans are: ‘essential’ for Britain’s recovery.

The Tax Minister’s pronouncement spawns from the emptiness of the IMF and EU’s failure to produce any model for austerity measures (which essentially entail a dramatic cessation in public spending) ever bringing back any country in Europe from ruin to prosperity, coupled with the PIGS countries clear inability to not only sustain any kind of prolonged public expenditure cuts, but now clearly to pay back their bailouts.

And in a dramatic failure to lead from the front on public expenditure cuts, whilst the EU Commissioners are so busy championing ‘austerity measures’ to member states, they are in shopping mode with member states’ taxpayer’s contributions as the EU’s own public spending/ administration costs are set to go up by 5% in 2012.

As such, the clear-cut strategy for the EU Commissioners seems to be:-

a) transfer public spending from member states to the EU (which has never been audited)
b) EU Commissioners will then control and eventually dominate all member states
c) member states, via economic and political union, become ‘prefectures’/ ‘regions’ of the European Union.
