´The Vikings have been defeated´:
Denmark ready to love Marmite again
after overturning three-year ban

Daily Mail [UK], by Chris Pleasance

They say you either love it or hate it and it seems after years of hate Denmark is finally ready to love Marmite again after overturning a ban on the spread David Darlington, 49, owner of a supplier which sells British and American products to supermarkets, had a licence to stock the product approved three years after it was taken off the shelves.

I thought, how dare those b******* ban Marmite, it´s a British institution. ´Plus I´ve had people, British,

Comments:
Okay you Marmite haters, put ´em up. Newbies be warned: an Ldotter Marmite Mêlée can be full of passion.

I´ll start: I love the stuff. Excellent quick and nourishing breakfast when spread thinly on buttered toast and can liven up a stew in no time. The Australian version is Vegemite. Both products may be found on Amazon.

Marmite is one food product which retains the same (or very similar) jar and label I remember from childhood.

Thanks for supplying the link, #3. There´s empty space where the link should be. Hmmm. Probably an anti-Marmiter doing a bit of hacking.

Marmite is made from the yeast that is a by-product of the beer brewing process. Most of us don´t care that much for the taste of yeast.

Maybe if they put hazelnuts in it?
Chocolate and Hazelnuts is my new favorite for breakfast.
My former Australian Brother-in-Law introduced me to vegemite and Fosters Beer.. The Fosters was GREAT, but the vegemite tasted like carpet sweepings.

I don´t know Vegemite from Marmite but what´s wrong with vitamin B12. I take B12, it´s supposed to be good for the brain and memory. You can buy it over the counter. The only vitamin of which I am aware that can be harmful in large doses is vitamin A (that´s why you must never eat the liver of a Polar Bear . . . fortunately I don´t like liver). Why are the Brits regulating B12?

Mass default looms as world
sinks beneath a sea of debt
Telegraph [UK], by Jeremy Warner    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 9/30/2014 8:31:18 AM     Post Reply
As if the fast degenerating geo-political situation isn’t bad enough, here’s another lorry load of concerns to add to the pile. The UK and US economies may be on the mend at last, but that’s not the pattern elsewhere. On a global level, growth is being steadily drowned under a rising tide of debt, threatening renewed financial crisis, a continued squeeze to living standards, and eventual mass default. [Snip] The raw numbers make explosive reading. Contrary to widely held assumptions, the world has not yet begun to de-lever. In fact global debt-to-GDP--public and private non financial debt--is still growing, breaking

12.00 Boris is cheering up delegates: asking whether there are any ´kippers in the audience and saying that Ed Miliband´s "surreal" speech has put victory in the Tories´ grasp. "The subconscious rebelled. The baggage handlers in his memory went on strike and refused to load the word deficit onto the conveyor belt of his tongue," says Boris. Modestly, the Mayor says he is a merely a "municipal toenail", and decries the "Londonophobia" seen in the Scottish independence referendum.

The break-in at the White House makes the US Secret Service look terrible. It also sheds light on an agency that operates largely behind the scenes. [Snip] On Friday, a man later identified as Iraq War veteran Omar Gonzalez climbed a fence, ran more than 60m (197ft) and made it through the North Portico door. One former Secret Service officer who asked not to be identified ("I´m a private person," he says) is as puzzled as anyone about his former colleagues--and "how hapless they seemed". He says he´s spent "many hours" standing at the North Portico door. He wonders how Gonzalez made it

Egyptian court jails 68 Muslim

CAIRO--An Egyptian court sentenced 68 Muslim Brotherhood supporters to jail terms on Tuesday, judicial sources said, in a case related to deadly violence a year ago after the army´s ouster of Islamist President Mohamed Morsi. All were found guilty of killing 30 people and intending to kill others in Cairo on October 6, 2013, when more than 50 people died in clashes across the country between Morsi opponents and supporters.

Obama Chided for Telling UN:

With the world concentrating on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu´s hard-hitting remarks at the UN General Assembly on Monday, the Zionist Organization of America turns attention to President Barack Obama´s address to the UN--and what it calls his "baseless and offensive claim" that "the violence engulfing the region today has made too many Israelis ready to abandon the hard work of peace." [Snip] He then mentioned the Muslim extremist violence "engulfing the region" in the same breath as the "too many Israelis [who are] ready to abandon the hard work of peace."

British Isis hostage John Cantlie has appeared in a new propaganda video on behalf of the terrorist group, criticising Obama´s ´disappointingly predictable military strategy´ against the terror group. Wearing an orange Guantanamo-style jumpsuit and speaking directly to the camera, Cantlie attacks the West´s plans to use Iraqi troops and Syrian rebels to fight Isis. In a forced speech, Cantlie says organising the Iraqi army will take months, and describes the Free Syrian Army as an ´undisciplined, corrupt and largely ineffective fighting force.´ He also says that arming the Syrian rebels with Western weapons is ´largely useless´, because many are sold on the

Given how completely Barack Obama´s foreign policy has been upended by the rise of Isil in Syria, it is not surprising that the president should try and gloss over the scale of his own miscalculation when it came to the threat posed by the jihadists--but that doesn´t mean he should be allowed to get away with it. This weekend Mr Obama had the cheek to blame his intelligence agencies for the fact that the White House was "caught by surprise" by the sudden rise of Isil, publicly throwing James Clapper, his Director of National Intelligence, under the bus for failing

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu addressed the United Nations General Assembly in New York on Monday, in a bid to refute the smear campaign launched by Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas claiming Israel is guilty of "genocide." "Distinguished delegates, I come here from Jerusalem to speak on behalf of my people, the people of Israel," Netanyahu began. "I have come here to speak about the dangers we face [. . ] against the brazen lies about my country and about the people who defend it." The Prime Minister emphasized that Israel´s fight against Hamas is a microcosm of the fight against global

Seeing my old friend Mark Reckless in another party is sad. A devoted and patriotic MP, he has just taken the difficult decision to leave the Conservatives for Ukip. [Snip] The electorate is not a series of blocs that can be lumped together. I sometimes find myself having to correct interviewers who ask me about Ukip ‘taking your votes’. They’re not our votes, I say; they belong to the people who cast them. Nor, of course, are the Conservative and Ukip programmes identical. Last week, Ukip made a Leftward shift in pursuit of such Labour seats such as Rotherham, Grimsby

Fierce fighting has been reported on the outskirts of Baghdad where ISIS militants are attempting to seize control of the Iraqi capital--despite ongoing Western airstrikes against the terror group. The fighting is taking place just one mile to the west of the city, with government forces desperately trying to hold off the militants, who allegedly killed up to 1,000 soldiers during clashes yesterday. ISIS have held a number of towns and villages close to the Iraqi capital since earlier in the year, when government troops melted away following a lightning advance in the west of the country--enabling the terrorist group

Brave Kurdish soldiers battling Islamic State militants in northern Syria have converted tractors and lorries into tanks by adding metal plates to create Mad Max-style road warriors. The peshmerga troops were forced to take the initiative and create their own armoured vehicles after the far better equipped ISIS jihadists repeatedly got the better of the Kurds´ Soviet-era military fleet. [Snip] Despite the odds being against them, peshmerga forces have bravely fought back against the estimated 31,000 ISIS militants operating in Syria and Iraq--whose self-declared ´caliphate´ forms an area larger than Britain with a population of four million brutally oppressed citizens.

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

The man who jumped the White House fence this month and sprinted through the front door made it much farther into the building than previously known, overpowering one Secret Service officer and running through much of the main floor, according to three people familiar with the incident. An alarm box near the front entrance of the White House designed to alert guards to an intruder had been muted at what officers believed was a request of the usher’s office, said a Secret Service official who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

The L.A. Times is warning that the “worst is yet to come” if a grand jury fails to indict white officer Darren Wilson for shooting and killing black 18-year-old Michael Brown. If the grand jury fails to indict the officer who killed Michael Brown, almost everyone here thinks things will get worse. “They’re not going to be looting next time,” said Kevin Seltzer, 30, who lives at an apartment complex near where Brown, 18, was shot. “They’re going to burn the city down.” The article highlights recent indications that the city is “far from finding peace,” including continued clashes with officers, the shooting

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

President Obama firmly believes the United States is better off now than when he took office, even though the American people cannot “feel” it. During an interview with 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft, Obama said, “the country is definitely better off than when I came into office.” “When I came into office, our economy was in crisis,” Obama said. The president then cited lower unemployment, private sector job growth, and deficit cuts as evidence of his administration’s success. “I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis,” Obama said.

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,

Democrats think conservatives in general, and Tea Partiers in particular, are stupid. Here’s how to reinforce that belief: Sit out the 2014 congressional elections because your favorite candidate lost his primary bid to an establishment Republican. If you live in Kansas, for example, you can suck your thumb while Democrat ringer Greg Orman beats Republican Senator Pat Roberts. If you’re a Kentucky conservative, you can stay home and b***h about Mitch while Alison “Rubberstamp” Grimes heads to Washington. If you’re in Mississippi, you can stay mad at Thad and allow Travis “no repeal” Childers to win. That’ll show those RINOs! It
