Band of Brothers

As if the Labour leadership contest wasn’t exciting enough already, just as it comes to its natural conclusion we learn this morning that More4 will be making a docu-drama about the Mili-brothers. The “light-hearted” look at their bitter rivalry that has seen them drive a wedge through their family in their individual quests for power, will go out the night before the result is announced. The rumours that Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise will be rekindling their acting partnership are apparently wide of the mark.

    Come on. Raymond and his brother were nice, decent, honest and kind. Nothing like the Milibots.

For the LibDems the Coalition has replaced Michael Foot’s Labour Manifesto of 1987 as the “longest suicide note in political history”…..the LibDems are tied in to the Coalition’s fortunes for better or( in their case)worse.Hissy fits or not wiser heads in the party know that they’re shafted.

    Leicestershire County Council said Zam Zam water, from Saudi Arabia, was likely to be illegal and could have high levels of arsenic as well as nitrates.

    The council’s Trading Standards Service warning comes just two days before Ramadan, the Islamic month of fasting, is due to start.

    “Because of the difficulties in measuring fraud
    across all sectors of the UK, a balance must be
    struck between accuracy and comprehensiveness.
    In order to ensure this fraud measure is more
    comprehensive than previous centralised estimates,
    the NFA has calculated its figures using targeted
    measurement exercises and expert estimates to
    fill significant gaps where data was unavailable.
    These additional fraud estimates have been
    included in the centralised estimate of £30.5 billion”

    Wonderful – HMG appoints an international credit rating agency to, basically audit – the financial records of claimants, and will hand over whatever records that they need to do so. That’s par with Nu Lab’s proposals to share/sell ID database data to private firms. Can no-one else see the potential dangers of such a move?

    Who is a potential ‘benefit cheat’? Claimants with large payments? Claimants living in nice areas?

    I wonder precisely how much previously confidential data will make its unregulated way into the hands of the financial sector …

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.”
