We’re All In It Together

Guido has been chewing over the numbers. Given that a lowly CCHQ researcher or press officer would have been lucky to be on around £35,000, the jump to government for the lower rungs of the SpAd list has come with an extremely handsome pay-rise. Nearly 100% rise for those now touching £60-70k.

Though Coulson & Co. at the top have in some cases taken a pay cut, the coalition has brought some serious pay rises for others. Take the MPs in the Cabinet for example, they have had a 107% rise from their standard MPs salary. Backbenchers who are now Junior Ministers have had a 50% rise, even after Dave decreed that they would all have a 5% pay cut. All sharing the pain.

Cameron pre-power promised a cut down on SpAds. The New Dawn of Politics has managed to reduce the number from 78 to 68. There are still vacancies yet to be filled though. In this age of austerity some SpAds will be glancing over the list shocked that their rivals in other departments managed to negotiate more. Meanwhile the voting taxpayers will be looking at the whole get up with utter scorn.

      Main beneficiaries are the Lib Dems who thought that a Minister’s annual salary was £21-12-6d and as for special advisors well, they’d never heard the term, they didn’t exist the last time any of them ever walked into a ministry.

          You have to admire Dave’s kamikaze attitude.
          Not content with the cuts and tax rises that will make his Government hugely unpopular Dave thinks another 5 years of pointless deaths supporting a corrupt regime in Afghanistan will be the icing on the cake for the public.

Morons like the woman in charge of the electoral commision/the met office just to name two, the aim is to inject political considerations only into whole areas of public life which leads to the degradation of those areas and ready the public for a takeover by the EUSSR. The ultimate aim is to make these institutions fail so completely that a takeover by the EU will be seen as an improvement.

    “Housing delivery funding has also been cut, undermining the prospects for crucial housing development that the Labour Government worked so hard to support through the recession.

    “Cameron’s claim that ‘we are all in this together’ has today been exposed as a sham.

    “By choosing to cut a grant that is targeted at councils in areas with high levels of deprivation, the Lib Dem-Tory Coalition has shown it is all too willing to let the poorest shoulder the greatest burden.

    “The Government has taken the first opportunity to slash funding for services on which vulnerable people depend.

      You would do well to take your red tinted glasses off you Labour fuckwit.
      Yesterday in the Commons lard arse Pickles pointed out that last year’s new housing starts, from all sources, were the lowest since 1946.

      The biggest slum and otherwise dodgy landlords in the country are Labour local authorities and have been for years. Subsidised ‘social housing’ exists primarily to shore up Labour votes in crap areas and to create well paid empires for their champagne socialist lefty mates, managing the poor. And once Labour started running out of locals to keep them in office in their fiefdoms they opened the immigration floodgates and imported literally millions of ‘voters’ from all over the world to take their place. Social cohesion my arse! If years of voting Labour and throwing public money at ‘social housing’ made a difference our inner cities would be paradises and not the dangerous shit-holes that they are now. At least folks in the old days tried their hardest to escape the slums if they could as they knew they were shit .

      Ironically, Labour’s ranks are full of property millionaires who have benefited from flipping their privately owned but publically-funded homes under Labour’s ruinous house price bubble con. Under Labour , property speculation and buy to let merchants held sway more or less pricing ordinary working people out of the housing market altogether.

      The solution, by whatever means necessary, is the creation of cheap private housing not more public housing. Labour don’t want this because private homeowners are more likely to vote Tory than Council tenants.

      If memory serves me correctly the main thrust of the Conservative Election Campaign, that resulted in Blair’s Victory in ’97, was that none of the Labour Party Shadow Cabinet had any experience in Government.
      The hiring of SPAds was to make up for this deficit of experience.

      I had looked forward to the elimination of this tier of Government, the Civil Service are extremely well experienced and are accountable for their action.
      This can be seen in the smooth running of the wheels of Government during the recesses.
      I have often thought that some if not most of the government of this country would be better served if the Civil Service ran things ALL the time, allowing the elimination of (seemingly) pointless and (often) moronic Ministers who haven’t a clue, let alone experience in the field that their Ministry covers.

The American military stood back after Obama asked them to assist saying that they didn’t have the kit or skills to operate at those depths.

        The leak shouldn’t have happened in the first place, but it did, and it has to be dealt with. Get the leak plugged, make the well secure, clean up the pollution, then ask the questions and throw the accusations. Giving BP grief now is premature – the yanks should get their priorities sorted out.

            Cameron declined to be drawn into commenting on concerns expressed by some U.K. lawmakers that the language used by the U.S. over the spill is anti-British. Some U.S. officials have repeatedly called the company “British Petroleum,” the name it dropped in favor of BP in 1998.

        A friend’s wife who moved to the US in the early 70s put it well when she said that US Society was 2 dimensional. After 10 years in the US I reminded her of her analysis but she couldn’t remember what she’d meant by it. I’m sure Stepford Wives was an exact metaphor for US Society in general.
        Most Americans believe Canada is barely civilised and that anywhere else is primitve, and for most Britain is a land that invented slavery and is even now not free but spends its time suppressing colonies including Ireland, and that we are pretty hopeless at most things including electrical gadgets courtesy of Lucas, and Wars where we’ve had to be saved, twice in the 20th Century by the noble, clever and brave US Democracy.

      Cameron borrows can-do-better attitude from ‘brilliant Barack’

      The man who could be America’s first black president won ringing praise yesterday from the man who could be Britain’s 19th old Etonian prime minister.
      David Cameron said he hugely admired Barack Obama, the front-running contender for the Democrat nomination, and vowed to bring some of the same spirit to the British political debate.

      “I’m enjoying watching Barack Obama. I think he’s a brilliant speaker, I think his optimism and sense of hope for the future is inspiring a lot of people. It’s great to see. Too often [politics] gets down to hope and fear and I think it’s wonderful when hope wins. I’m enjoying watching him, I must say. I think he’s compelling,” Cameron told Radio 5 Live’s Breakfast programme.

      “What people like is the sense that Obama generates, that we don’t have to be like this, we can do better… I think we need that same sense of possibility here.”

      “He is a very easy person to talk with, to exchange views with. He’s an incredibly impressive politician and leader but he’s also an extremely personable human being and someone it’s easy to get on with and to strike up a relationship with.

      “It’s my second meeting and it’s always enjoyable to meet and discuss with him and also to meet his wife and to meet his very impressive team

    Of course, gordon never volunteered to go anywhere near the frontline. Unlike cameron who visited the frontline in 2009 and was present at a firefight, when he was being briefed on open ground. Bullets were reported to have flown over the head of his small group who neither flinched nor stopped the briefing.

    Today he also visited the frontline in Sanguin and it is said, an assassination attempt was made on cameron but, again, his very small group was unphased.

    No wonder the troops looked at ease and relaxed with him. Says it all!!!

So I pursue the 2nd best option, to keep advocating that our lads be given, NOW, the equipment they need to survive. Thisd, at least, is better than they received under the last rubbish labour government who never gave our troops any consideration at all!

        If that means cancelling contracts on British companies, in labour heartlands, who cannot deliver kit and equipment until 3 or 5 years hence, but American companies can get even better kit and equipment to our lads now, then so be it, give the contracts to the American companies!

        And it is a fact that American companies can provide the equipment we need now and British companies can’t and that the Labour Government wouldn’t sanction the purchase of American kit, even though it was superior to British and instantly available , because the British Companies are in labour’s heartlands where they most feared losing their vote if they took the work away !

        See above – or go back over 12 months of my posts.

        I’ve said all along ir++aq and afghanistan were nothing more than bliar’s glory wars.

        He thought, foul man, that the wars would cement him in international history as a great warrior leader. My view is that we shouldn’t have been in either place. There was no sound reason for it, other than one man’s ego and his intent to build his own personal reputation. !! Hell of a reason to sacrifice the lives of brave men!!

        As chancellor gordon hated the Armed Forces and starved them of funds in the hope of forcing failure and destroying bliar’s goals. He didn’t care that troops were dying because of his underfunding, and as he showed at chilcot, he was prepared to lie to cover up his jealousy of bliar!!

        We can’t win in Afghanistan. Their history , and ours, which is intertwined, tells us that. We have fought wars in Afghanistan before in our history. Look at the record! There is no substantive reason for being there.

        When gordon became PM he committed the ultimate sin by appointing aintbustingut as Minister of Defence – a man of one brain cell if that. It showed gordon’s contempt for the Armed Forces and the sacrifices that they were making and his intention to continue starving them of funds and equipment.

        gordon compounded that disgustig sin by refusing to buy American kit, helicopters, armoured vehicles etc for our troops which is available NOW , by giving orders to British companies in the labour heartland.

        Valuable labour votes were up for grabs in that heartland. He chose to make jobs there and lose lives in the Armed Forces , even though those British companies couldn’t deliver kit and equipment for at least 3 to 5 years hence.

        More British Troops died because of it but labour thought they would save votes by this decision in the 2010 election.

        Honorable decision hmmm??!!

            The warmongering hypocrite nell is lying again.

            The vote was nowhere near unanimous and there plenty of MPs both Conservative and Labour who saw through Blair’s flimsy lies. Even the LibDems did. But Cameron didn’t because he’s an idiot.

            Cameron even backed the Iraq War years later in 2006 by which time we even he knew that WMD was a Lie.

            Cameron backs Blair on Iraq war

            Conservative leader David Cameron has said he still believes going to war with Iraq was the right thing to do.
            In an interview for BBC’s Friday Night with Jonathan Ross, he said the war had been “very unpopular” and some bad decisions had been made since it began.

            But Mr Cameron said “those of us who supported” the military action should “see it through”.

            He praised Tony Blair’s reform of the Labour party but said he wanted the Tories to be “the party of the future”.

            http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/5108584.stm

            That’s Cameron proving he is as stupid and full of shit as the hypocrite nell.

            Cameron has no more honour than his disgusting lickspittle warmongering shills by continuing this pointless carnage.
            Whining about the Warcriminal Blair or Brown won’t cut it as an excuse anymore. Cameron is in charge now so the blood of dead troops are now on him as long as he keeps them there.

      troops out now

      if that’s too complicated to understand then the fault is clearly not at my end

      Cameron has no intention of getting the troops out in the near or mid term
      How do I know ? because he himself at no time has he said they will be returning home within 2, 5 or even 10 years

      hypocrisy is supporting a continuing pointless quagmire when you raged against it when New Labour was guilty of enacting it
      nell is guilty of that in spades as well as wallowing in the blood of dead troops when it was Brown but trying the same pathetic logistical weasel words you do to excuse Cameron now he is continuing the bloodshed

      I do not expect them all out in a day so take that ludicrous straw man elsewhere
      but it only takes 5 minutes to announce they are coming home NOW to begin the extraction of our troops from the quagmire even if it takes a few months to complete that logistically
      5 minutes Cameron will never use as he is as guilty of warmongering as Brown and Blair before him
      sooner or our troops will HAVE to leave but under Cameron it’s going to be far later than the public will stomach, something he is going to find out the hard way

      it’s frankly nauseating to continue this pointless bloodshed and pretend there’s nothing Cameron can do about it because he’s only the Prime Minister and no better than the hated Blair or Brown

None are overweight, one family member smokes we are all physically fit and none are overweight.

    This morning I wake to the sad news that Nelson Mandela’s great granddaughter was killed in a car crash. Sad news indeed.

    BBC reported this morning that it was a sad day for the start of the World Cup – I thought they were talking about the bus crash where we learn that 3 students have died and many more are injured. No, the death of Nelson Mandela’s granddaughter is the reason there is a cloud over the start of the world cup. How can they put the death of one child over another. Both events are sad and devastating for all families concerned.
