It’s Time to Fix Banking – a Petition in the Right Direction…

It’s nice to see when ‘beginners’ in monetary reform tackle our systemic money problems, by tackling the banking issue. Here are the four simple demands that 38 Degrees have formulated in their petition It’s Time to Fix Banking:

Dear Banking Committee

Please hold the banks to account for the way they’ve behaved. The scandals need to stop. You need to make sure:

  • Banks put customers first, not bankers
  • There are tougher rules to keep banks in line
  • There are proper punishments for bankers who break them
  • It’s easier for us to move to a different bank when we want to.

But no banking regulation and no punishment of bankers will change

  • the Government’s dependence on public debts
  • the Government’s unwillingness to spend the Cash that it can print and mint into the economy
  • the Government’s willingness to bail out banks rather than businesses…

And thus we know better than ever: money rules the world, as created by banks, not in the spirit of the writers of the Bank of England Act 1694 though!

Public Cash for the Real Economy – the ultimate request, by online petition

This is yet another attempt to put a complex story into nickel words. Triggered by the idea of a BlogPaper, i.e. turning into print depending on how the online community rates and comments.

National banking and “illegal money”

There is a remarkable petition to the Prime Minister which spells out in a nutshell what monetary reformers have been saying, writing and videoing about for decades:

We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to Stop the Bank of England from producing illegal money, stop fractional reserve banking and create a nationalised bank.

Whilst promoting it, I was asked about “illegal” and spelled my analysis out as part of the Enforcement of the Bank of England Act 1694. The act was written with the intent “not to oppress Their Majesties’ subjects!”

It seems that this good intention has not been translated into reality over the three centuries since…

Six Petitions online: two Targets

Petitioning for our causes is in the air! In chronological order of publication:

1. Targeted at the Treasury Select Committee

2. Aimed at the Prime Minister’s Office

Please click, sign and forward, if anything rings true for you! We must have 200 signatures before being ‘taken seriously’, according to MySociety, the No.10 petition hosts.

Financial Fairness for Voters and Taxpayers, please!

Financial Fairness for Voters and Taxpayers, please! is our second online petition – targeted at the Treasury Select Committee.

Since Lord Sudeley signed yesterday, I feel comfortable promoting it, especially after I got this remarkable article in my inbox this morning.

The Goddess of March
Rene Wadlow *

Be ever watchful, wanderer, for the eyes that gaze into yours at the bend of the road may be those of the goddess herself. Oracle at Delphi

March 8 is the International Day of Women and is placed under the sign of the goddess of the month of March — Minerva. Minerva derives her name from the Latin mens (mind), and so she has a special relation to teachers and artists, especially players of a flute. Tradition has it that Minerva is a transformation of an earlier Etruscan and Sabine goddess taken over when Rome was established. She has also taken symbols and meanings from the Greek Athene, especially the owl as a sign of seeing in the dark, what is usually hidden or instinctive. Minerva is she who brings from the darkness into the light.

Our Petition in the Hands of John McFall MP

Here is what I wrote to everybody who signed the online petition on http://tinyurl.com/666rwd:

Dear Signatories of the Public Credit Petition,

You and I have been waiting for this for a long time: Austin Mitchell MP has given the petition to John McFall MP, the Chairman of the Treasury Select Committee!!! In a beautiful blue folder, prepared by his assistant. I can’t tell you how relieved I am and how often I’ve been on Austin’s tails…

I have also formulated an Early Day Motion in support of the petition, but am told that EDM’s only make sense after the Queen’s speech, i.e. after December 3rd.
