IPSA-a-Daisy II

Last month they were accidentally paying people when they shouldn’t and now today, payday, it’s the turn of the bag-carriers and researchers to rage at IPSA. Scores of Parliamentary staff have been underpaid this month, with errors ranging from £20 to £300 shy. An all round saving  for the taxpayer.

When one lowly staffer phoned the IPSA offices to complain, they could not come up with an explanation, though ever helpful they replied – “We’ve got some P45 forms if you want one of those?”

    I must say that dinners at my school have improved no end. Sure numbers dropped at first (I remember one kid in front of me in the queue exclaiming ‘Urgh… What’s THAT??!!’ as he pointed at cauliflower). But the take up has grown and surpassed previous numbers. It’s not lecturing, it’s just what’s there – and they’ve got used to it. The canteen has been upgraded and they actually like sitting in there to eat. It’s a private company though – and expensive. I’d rather a local independent did it, using local food, and encouraging local small business/employment.

    I remember listening to the saga unfold on The Food Programme when Jamie Oliver and others were campaigning. I think Jeanette Orrey was one of the main protagonists, and did just as you describe in her own school canteen, with startling improvement to pupil behaviour and academic attainment. Straightforward logic, really – you are what you eat.

    I was surprised at how poor school catering had become. My memories of school dinners are of healthy, if rather unexciting food. We only got chips on Fridays, but chocolate pudding and custard was a popular regular. About the only negatives were the fishless fish fingers and the catering-quality roast beef. Turkey Twizzlers were unknown (and possibly not invented). We usually ate it all, as well.

    It’s golly Good!

    Ground-rents are a still more proper subject of taxation than the rent of houses. A tax upon ground-rents would not raise the rents of houses. It would fall altogether upon the owner of the ground-rent, who acts always as a monopolist, and exacts the greatest rent which can be got for the use of his ground. More or less can be got for it according as the competitors happen to be richer or poorer, or can afford to gratify their fancy for a particular spot of ground at a greater or smaller expense. In every country the greatest number of rich competitors is in the capital, and it is there accordingly that the highest ground-rents are always to be found. As the wealth of those competitors would in no respect be increased by a tax upon ground-rents, they would not probably be disposed to pay more for the use of the ground. Whether the tax was to be advanced by the inhabitant, or by the owner of the ground, would be of little importance. The more the inhabitant was obliged to pay for the tax, the less he would incline to pay for the ground; so that the final payment of the tax would fall altogether upon the owner of the ground-rent.

    Lord Goldsmith's warning to Tony Blair that Iraq war would be illegal says:

    Former Attorney General Lord Goldsmith warned Tony Blair three months before the Iraq war that an invasion would be illegal, secret memos showed today.

    The Cabinet Office published Lord Goldsmith’s first draft of his legal advice and confirmed that he had serious doubts about the legality of the conflict without a fresh UN mandate.

    The memo, released under the orders of Cabinet Secretary Sir Gus O’Donnell, was written on January 14, 2003.

    It stated: “My opinion is that resolution 1441 does not revive the authorisation to use of force… in the absence of a further decision of the Security Council.”

    The memo also made clear that Lord Goldsmith found arguments in favour of a war without the UN resolution “unconvincing”.

    Yet within days of giving his opinion, he flew to Washington for a meeting with President Bush’s top advisers and changed his mind about the legal position.

    John Bellinger, the former White House legal counsel, later told British colleagues: “We had trouble with your attorney. We got him there eventually”.

    Howard hits out at jail term plans

    Conservative former home secretary Michael Howard has hit out at controversial proposals by Justice Secretary Kenneth Clarke to send fewer criminals to prison and use more community sentences.

    Mr Howard – who famously coined the expression “prison works” – said that he was “not convinced” by Mr Clarke’s more liberal approach to penal policy.

    “I think in order to protect the public, serious and persistent criminals need to be put in prison,” he told the BBC Radio 4 PM programme.

    “I think that is what conscientious judges and magistrates are doing at present and I think that is the best way of protecting the public.”

    David Cameron defended Mr Clarke’s plans, saying that he was being forced to take radical action to deal with the “complete mess” that Labour had made of the the criminal justice system.

    “I believe that prison can work, it is just not working properly at the moment,” he told MPs at Prime Minister’s Questions.

    “If ever there was a part of our public services that needed radical reform to make sure prison does work, that’s it.”

    However there was anger among Tory MPs after Mr Clarke used his first major speech as Justice Secretary to question the value of “banging up more and more people”, suggesting it was a throwback to the Victorian era.

    He said that sending offenders to jail often proved to be a “costly and ineffectual approach that fails to turn criminals into law-abiding citizens” and called for “intelligent sentencing” with a greater focus on rehabilitation.

    Tory backbencher Philip Davies warned that Mr Clarke was out of step with ordinary Conservative supporters who voted for the party at the general election.

    I once worked with an engineer who in a previous employment had designed high pressure water jet cutting equipment. The early ones were not as powerful as the modern ones, which can cut 6″ thick steel at a push, but one application he designed a machine for was a bakery. Apparently for catering markets, they make the loaves about ten feet long, then slice them. Cutters tend to crush fresh bread, so they used the HP water jet – very successfully. You’d think the water would soak the bread, but you need so little of it that it didn’t.

    When he related this tale, one of the draughtsmen asked him why he hadn’t installed two nozzles, one for the water, one for butter, thus producing ready sliced and buttered. The draughtsman was told to travel, with jerky movements…

    here’s how the local crims view it. They rode up to the prison on trail bikes, smashed their way into the 4×4 that is used to patrol the perimeter. Poured petrol into it while the others held the warders at bay, set it on fire and rode off. This was to warn them to stop searches for mobile phones and drugs.

    Sorry. Fascinating, both. If a bread-related conversation comes up at work tomorrow I’m bound to impress ;)

    HMRC are institutionally incompetent. Get a good accountant to do your tax returns – they’ll save you more than they cost just in time saved.

    I hated Britain’s got talent until I saw the mongs who thought they were brilliant. I found their idiocy highly entertaining, like jesters. I have just had the same with Big Brother,watching the reactions of the mongs on it

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
