A Peer Named Sue

Another day, and another swathe of new peers are being sworn into office and £300-a-day expenses. Still waiting for Lord Howard of Transylvania, but the big question today is whether Gordon will actually bother to show up to watch his long-suffering aide Sue Nye ennobled.

Baroness Nye of Rochdale?

After eighteen loyal years in the shadows, keeping out-of-the-way of Nokias, and keeping the rest of the world away from Gordon, her boss repaid her with blame for his own mess and weaknesses. The public got to see it spectacularly once, but who knows what else went on behind closed doors. Eighteen years of mad, bad and dangerous” work?

She deserves a medal…

What she deserves is the stocks and then traitors gate.

            Mr Cameron upped the political ante on bonuses by saying that no one at banks that have taken money from the taxpayer should be paid a bonus worth more than £2,000.

            Tory leader has also suggested that bankers should do charity work to apologise for the credit crunch and called for more “morality” in the market.

          • Wall Street Bonuses Hit Record $39 Billion for 2007 says:

            Wall Street Bonuses Hit Record $39 Billion for 2007 (Update3) By Christine Harper Jan. 17 (Bloomberg) — Wall Street’s five biggest firms are paying a record $39 billion in bonuses for 2007, a year when three of the companies suffered the worst quarterly losses in their history and shareholders lost more than $80 billion. Goldman Sachs Group Inc., Morgan Stanley, Merrill Lynch & Co., Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. and Bear Stearns Cos. together awarded $65.6 billion in compensation and benefits last year to their 186,000 employees. That means year-end bonuses, at 60 percent of the total, exceeded the $36 billion distributed in 2006 when the industry reported all-time high profits. The New York-based firms, which shed 25 percent of their equity value during 2007, have said they’re eliminating at least 6,200 jobs amid mounting losses from the collapse of the subprime mortgage market. The payouts come as the U.S. economy slows, with unemployment rising, retail sales declining and new home foreclosures surging to a record. “To many people, it will be shocking and questionable,” said Jeanne Branthover, managing director of Boyden Global Executive Search in New York. The industry’s bonuses are larger than the gross domestic products of Sri Lanka, Lebanon or Bulgaria, and the average bonus of $219,198 is more than four times higher than the median U.S. household income in 2006, according to data compiled by the U.S. Census Bureau.—-

          McDoom courted the bankers, they were in each others pockets. Fred Goodwin was in and out of No.11 like the proverbial cuckoo. Bruin honoured the bankers (whilst the going was good and he was able to milk taxes off them). Brown made Fred, ‘Sir Fred’.

          Godoom relaxed the Tories’ regulations; created a property boom by keeping interest rates low (by specifying the CPI); believed his own propaganda that there would be “no more boom and bust”; decimated pensions thereby pushing people to regard their house as their pension; overspent because he thought ‘this time it’s different'; and split responsibility between the FSA and BoE so that when the bust came no-one in authority knew what was happening.

          Northern Wreck and HBoS collapsed because the British property boom collapsed and RBS collapsed mainly due to the hubris of ‘Sir’ Fred, encouraged by Brown’s patronage.

    Martin Day BBC political correspondent says:

    The coalition haven’t a clue on the economy

    So much for cuts !

    Government borrowing hit a higher-than-expected £14.5 billion last month, official figures revealed today.

    The woes facing Britain’s battered finances showed few signs of easing as the Office for National Statistics (ONS) confirmed the budget deficit widened by another £700 million in June to £12.6 billion.

    Last month’s public sector net borrowing was £200 million less than the £14.7 billion seen a year ago, but was more than the £13.5 billion expected by analysts.

    Figures excluding the temporary effects of State financial intervention showed borrowing rose to £15.2 billion up from £14.9 billion in June 2009.

        The coalition is toast….read this

        Norman Smith

        Chief political correspondent, BBC Radio 4


        The NAO report is a reality check for the Coalition when it comes to cuts.

        For while the report examines Labour’s record in trying, and failing, to find £35bn of savings – it contains a clear warning for the current chancellor.

        First, that finding savings is much harder than talking about them.

        Second, that Sir Humphrey is a wily old beast when it comes to avoiding painful cuts and protecting departmental budgets.

        And third, if departments were unable to meet Labour’s more modest cuts package, what chance have they got of meeting the Coalition’s much more ambitious plans?

        Government sources insist the NAO report is an indictment of the Labour years. Maybe. But it’s also a cold bucket of water for the Coalition.

          1. The demand from Government was for the Civil Service to cut POSTS, not PEOPLE

          2. Ergo, that’s exactly what we did – Senior Administrators became Managing Admistrators, Junior Clerks became Administrative Assistants and so on.

          3. Nobody actually lost their job (in fact we increased our numbers) but as far a ‘POSTS’ were concerned, he hit our target.

Only “The Leader” thought that we would win.We had to think what would come after and how we would rebuild the party.By the time we realised the collosal disaster unfolding it was too late and our chance to do something had gone.But we are determined to show that lessons have been learnt and move forward,.Just as you wake from a bad nightmare thankful it is over so it is with the past 13 years. We have to put those years behind us and re-connect with the people under a new modern leadership showing that the Labour Party can still deliver the policies for Britain whilst admitting the mistakes of our time in office………..etc.etc.etc

          Equally “Dave” is unlikely to put forward their names even though he did give Blair a standing ovation when he finished his last PMQs(Stoopid boy! should have been a kick up the arse).. so we should be safe.Equally it’s interesting that unlike ALL previous PMs Blair has not been favoured with the Order of the Garter by HMQ despite there being vacancies occurring since he resigned…considering he was supposed to have saved the Moonarchy(?) after Diana’s Death you’d think Her Maj would at least give him the “K” …it would increase his ticket price no end in the States.

    O/T, but if DC really wants to develop his Big Society idea, he has one hell of a task ahead of him with councils like this thinking that they are in charge of their residents, instead of the other way around:


    Pitiful, isn’t it, that mature adults can’t be trusted to some grass that slopes a bit. The nanny state is alive and kicking in Dudley.

      No wonder the council don’t want to do it. Fucking H&S Nazis.

      Noted that the report says that it does actually cut the steep bank outside the council offices. No cost saving there then as obviously council employees et al are more important than the public. Just like the expensive ‘ barrier truck , complete with two council employees that sits 50m ahead of another council employee changing a street light bulb – whilst a BT employee sits on a stool by the roadside without such protection whilst he works. Big Society? Long way to go.

      “If Cameron wants to explain something he can start by explaining how the hugely unequal distribution of the wealth of this country came about in the first place and how any of us can achieve our full potential as human beings while that inequality remains.”

      Thats right. Other people are stopping you reaching your full potential as a human being.

    The CIA destroyed Labour says:

    Labour are the only party to have said no to a war when bullied by the Americans to join in: Vietnam.

    Tony Blair was a CIA stooge placed to trash Labours great non violent reputation.

    If Labour had never gone to Afghanistan or Iraq then the Consveratives would never have saw power again.

    Observer says:

    Why did Sue work for the Prime Mentalist and ex Chancellor?

    Follow the money. Sue is married to the champagne swilling tosspot Gavyn Davies the draft dodger from Rhodesia who became economist Partner at Goldman Sachs. Gavyn got got inside track on Govt plans from Sue and made himself a name and a $100m fortune from GSachs.

    Don’t feel sorry for Sue. She swallowed Gordons shit and turned it into gold – pure alchemy.

        Because the draft dodging, golfing economic genius Gavyn D is now a partner in an asset management business and until the election, Sue Nye was able to pass him minutes of various G8/G20 meetings. Worth their weight in gold.

        Like I said, follow the money.

        The crafty Zimbabwean has made a killing through his wife swallowing Gordon’s crap. A small price to pay.

        yalleriron says:

        Nope. Both Nye and Ernie were good Labourites (Attlee government and all that). If I have to, I prefer the Welsh Bevan to the Somerset Bevin.

        I didn’t go to Ruskin College.

          A Charming Martini says:

          Baroness Ernie of Bevan?

          I cannot find it off hand but a Labour election broadcast had the two mixed up which is why I suggest that they go for the misspelling. Education, education, education and all that.

The Economist asks Tony Blair about Wendi Deng:

“Mr Blair roundly denies any impropriety. Asked whether he was (at least) careless about his reputation, he says calmly that it is “not something I will ever talk about—I haven’t and I won’t”, and then bangs his coffee cup so loudly into its saucer that it spills and everyone in the room jumps. But did he find himself in a tangle over his friendship with Ms Deng? A large, dark pool of sweat has suddenly appeared under his armpit, spreading across an expensive blue shirt. Even Mr Blair’s close friends acknowledge that the saga damaged him—not least financially, since Mr Murdoch stopped contributing to Mr Blair’s faith foundation and cut him off from other friendly donors in America.”
