Will the Spending Review Spark a Resignation?

This Wednesday sees the Spending Review, when we discover where unfunded over-spending will stop. We are told that some ministers still have not agreed a budget. Vince Cable at Business, Michael Gove at Education, Theresa May at the Home Office, Ken Clarke at Justice and IDS at Work and Pensions – though he is said to be close to doing a deal with the Treasury.

It is barely conceivable that Gove would resign – he is a core member of the Cameron project and education is where the government intends to have made a reforming impact before the 2015 election. So no matter what he’ll still be in office on Thursday. Theresa May has the professional politician’s ability to accept and argue her brief no matter what – she is not one for political heroism – so expect her to remain facing Balls across the dispatch box for now. IDS has reportedly got most of what he wanted, he has a habit of threatening to resign more often than Mrs Fawkes threatens divorce. Unless Osborne double-crosses him at the last moment, IDS will stay put.

That leaves Ken Clarke at Justice, the bookies give him a 5% chance of being the next to resign, he could make a glorious end of career stand. He would go without much acclaim, the Treasury has run a successful briefing operation against him and Crispin Blunt, painting the liberal Justice team as soft on criminals and wanting more money for better meals for prisoners. Guido thinks it only worth a flutter if you like 20/1 long shots…

Vince Cable, is once again the bookies favourite to resign next – replacing Liam Fox who has successfully played his defence budget cards. In truth this is Vince’s last chance to exit the government with honour. As it is he permanently looks like he has swallowed a bee, if he wants to save his “progressive” reputation this is the rubicon, after he accepts the policies that derive from the terms of the Spending Review he can’t later turn back. A big decision, he is a vain old man, he’ll probably never have another chance to be in government. Is he really that principled?

Guido thinks there is a good chance that a LibDem lower down the juniour ministerial ranks will seek to make a name for themselves and lay down a marker for the future.  Smarkets have a bet on any government minister, at any level, resigning on Wednesday. Currently punters give it a 15% (11/2) probability. That looks worth a few quid…

    Well if they keep ruling out budgets to be cut… at this rate I imagine those that are left will be facing cuts of 100%. That might piss a minister off.

          Education is supposed to be “for the good of the country”, but yes, more private sector would be nice in it, because they teach what THEY want, now what some politically correct a-hole in Whitehall wants school children to learn. For example, despite a large amount still not knowing “the three r’s” in the state sector, why are there ‘ollocks subjects like citizenship wasting students time?

          As for health, nobody choses to be sick, so there is a general pot that you may or may not have to make use for. This is the same as having private health care. However, you don’t want the US system where people are charged $100 just for an aspirin. Maybe the French system is a better model to have.

            I am more than prepared for my old age and I am just 43. I have had well paid jobs since graduating with a useful degree from a proper university.

            If I want need something I will buy it when I can both justify the expense and afford the expenditure.

            I’ve had a credit card for decades but have never used it unless the debit card is screwed. On the odd occasion I have had to use it the balance is paid off before interest accrues. This is because I don’t expect anyone else to bail me out – ever!

            My parents taught me how to live like this. Many children today don’t deserve to have the privilege of caring for their elders and betters.

            I will not smell of piss in my old age – guaranteed.

            And guess what @ Anonymous October 17, 2010 at 1:49 pm

            My parents made me sign a contract (yes, a real written contract) with them that, from the moment I left home for university, they were not obliged to pay for:

            1. Servicing and licensing my car (My responsibility, I saved up for it and bought it)
            2. Any other expenses.

            There were expenses, many and varied, from text books (£25+ each even then), pubs, getting pissed, clubs, more getting pissed etc.

            They didn’t even pay for my petrol the bastards.

            Luckily the petrol was purchased with the money I earned travelling back home every two weeks to work for a nearby company I started working for pre-university and half way through A levels.

            I got the job by reading books in a reference library over a very long week having called an agency and hearing of the IT requirements for companies.

            Sorry Addy I forgot you missed your own trial at Nuremberg due to that nasty accident you and the Mrs H had when you both accidentally died on your wedding night in May 45. Most couples have the first dance and a quick knee wobbler in the loo’s but instead you got food poisoning,shot, spilt petrol on yourselves and fell in a ditch whilst smoking a fag, which was rude because you hadn’t even welcomed all your guests, namely the Red army. Had you survived those unfortunate set of events then you would have had your wedding present from Uncle Joe, a nice shinny set of meat hooks. So in answer to your question, NO I don’t have any pictures, its your own fault for being so dam rude to Uncle Joe for not being available to receive him and thus denying him the opportunity to demonstrate them on you. The man had feelings you know, he was never the same man after that, its as if a light went out and it certainly speeded up his untimely demise.

    It seems unlikely. Any minister resigning because they say cuts are too deep risks being labelled a deficit denier. Besides, as we know, the cuts are to forward spending plans, not in current expenditure, which will rise in cash terms. I’m sure all ministers are being subtly pressed by their department’s senior civil servants to minimise reductions in budget, but suspect that most politicians recognise that their long-term reputations and career interests are probably best served by being seen to do the right thing for the country.

          Still, it’s good for the political and business classes, and that’s all what counts.

    It’s pretty clear that there is simply not enough room for all of the people in the government to sit comfortably at the Cabinet Table. A point your photograph graphically illustrates.

    I would like to offer a modest proposal to solve the problem and in the process, the country’s financial problems.

    Have only enough chairs to seat all of the cabinet except one. The prime minister should start a tape recorder whilst all of the cabinet member walk slowly around the table. When Mr Cameron switches the music off, everyone has to find a chair. All but one will be seated. This unfortunate, is dismissed from his/her post and their department and budget scrapped.

    Keep the process going until the number around the table is more in line with the size of this man’s cabinet:

        Predictably, after f*cking around for a decade the UK will eventually build two huge white elephants just in time for the technology to trickle down to anyone with a coastal navy.

If the Argies did it with the support of the Brazilians or the Uruguayans, you can kiss goodbye to those islands for good.

    Baroness Uddin’s Inexorable Flight from Justice

    If further proof were needed that our Parliament is unfit to police its own affairs:

    1. Uddin lives in subsidised housing association family home less than four miles from the HoL, and is registered to vote there.

    2. Uddin claims her main home is an empty flat in Maidstone

    3. Uddin claimed during 2007-2008 at the maximum rate for accommodation for more days than the Lords actually sat. A day’s work for Uddin typically entails entering and leaving Parliament over the course of a couple of minutes. She has fraudulently claimed more than £100K in false expenses.

    4. Uddin was exposed in 2009 by the Sunday Times, and the CPS notified. The HoL authorities responded by altering the rules so that a main home might be described as a place someone visited once a month, thwarting in an instant any external independent criminal investigation. (This decision was taken unilaterally by a civil servant called Michael Pownall who has worked his whole life at the HoL).

    6. Uddin is to be awarded in 2010, at the recommendation of Derry Irvine and the rest of the HoL Standards and Privileges Committee, the “toughest possible sanctions”

    Here are the “toughest possible sanctions” in detail:

    1. Uddin gets to keep her ‘job’ and title, but must keep her head down for 18 months.

    2. Uddin is to be repay the money that she stole. The Lords has effectively reclassified the proceeds of her criminal behaviour as an interest free loan, courtesy of the tax-payer.

    Uddin is a despicable pig. She is criminal scum. But the fucking lot of them are troughers in cahoots. They are incapable of learning. They must all go.

      Excellent points, 13eastie, IMHO.

      But there’s more to it.

      Today’s Sunday Times says that Plod/CPS has already declined the opportunity to prosecute because the Lords’ regulations are so lax – so there’s not much chance of proving she cheated – and they later changed the rules to ‘forgive’ the ‘errors’ anyway. That is an utter disgrace. Good for Manningham-Buller et al for pursuing this vile creature (in the face of Labour peers’ protests that account should be taken of her ‘straitened circumstances’).

      But there’s yet more to it.

      The Lords authorities are scrapping the expenses system, substituting an enhanced clocking-on fee (£150 half-day, £300 whole day).

      Does that end the fiddles? Not a bit! If a Lord or Lady has signed on ONCE in a month for the full-day rate, any subsequent signings-on that month must also be at the full-day rate, irrespective of how brief the visit.

      It beggars belief that these people, after all that has been said and the little that has been done, are STILL fixing-up nice little sinecures for themselves at our expense.

      ‘We’re all in this together’? I don’t think so!

        Definitely.

        Getting excited about SpAds is futile while the core of our democracy is rotten.

        1. To whom are any of the people who have aided Uddin’s evasion of justice (e.g. the S&P Committee and Pownall) actually accountable in any practical sense? And how have they justified their actions to the electors (that they don’t have)?

        2. How can such meaningless “sanctions”, which are hopelessly out-of-step with real life, have any deterrent effect whatsoever? Think for one second the whirlwind of shit that a small business would face were there to be hint of a suspicion of VAT fraud on such a scale.

        3. Why have they introduced a “reform” by copying the massively criticised and abused system of allowances in operation at the European parliament?

        4. Where is there any incentive at the HoL for members to ensure value-for-money in Parliament?

        5. Why are the Lords being allowed to the exclusion of all others to approve their own expenses system? £300+ to cover expenses incurred by a day of idleness? A home paid for, even if it’s used only one night a month i.e. LESS than most holiday homes? Who has actually been satisfied that any of this is reasonable?

        This is the scum we want to chase out, Guido. Gay SpAds are irrelevant while Parliament itself remains the enemy.

          I don’t know about the cost issue. The halal treatment though must take longer per animal as they have to wait for the blood to drain out before progressing it to the next stage.

          Normal slaughter involves electric prods which render the animal brain dead if not instantly a few seconds later. Traditional slaughter methods don’t involve saying a muzzie prayer over the animal as it is dying either. I neither want my meat hanging around to die or having a prayer said over it either.

          The muzzies don’t accept the traditional slaughter practices in Britain. Why should I accept theirs?

          The various meat marketing boards (domestic and global), assorted industry numpties and supermarket profiteers are falling over themselves to not print on packs the method of slaughter. Why are they so reticent?

          If the muzzies demand halal what is wrong with me not wanting halal? Halal is a method of despatch which I want to avoid.

          THE King of Jordan’s sister has appealed to the Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd, to stop the ritual slaughter of conscious animals for halal meat in Australia, saying it was not necessary under Islamic principles.

          Princess Alia bint al-Hussein of Jordan, who is the sister of King Abdullah II of Jordan, said she had written to Mr Rudd saying that any lowering of animal welfare standards in Australia for religious reasons would be a blow to the country’s reputation and undermine progress in the Middle East.

          “Contrary to some claims, killing without stunning is not necessary under Islamic principles,” she said.

          The Australian standard on ritual slaughter for halal and kosher meat states that animals must first be rendered unconscious by electrical stunning before their throats are cut.

          But under a disputed federal guideline, the Government has allowed at least four Victorian abattoirs exemptions to kill without stunning to fulfil Middle Eastern export contracts over the past two years.

          “Reducing [Australia's] standards to permit animals to be slaughtered while fully conscious may meet the personal preferences of a minority but it is not an example that will inspire positive change, nor encourage the acceptance of pre-slaughter stunning in the Middle East,” she said.

    Being an old cynic, it’s very rare that I’d give a uk politician much praise above “doing ok, could do better”, but in this case Gove made a blinding speech and genuinely made me think:

    “Thank fuck for that; we’ve got someone who actually cares about educating our kids, wants to do it properly, and doesn’t want to burn money in the process.”

    I particularly liked his section which went along the lines of (paraphrasing here and adding expletives etc, but this was the gist of it)….


    People want us to slow down on education reform; they don’t want to bring in these new ideas for years. To them I say “fuck you; our kids don’t get a second chance, so we’re doing this right fucking now before we destroy any more kids’ lives with a shit education system.”

    I also liked his section on having shit standards (ie moaning about the fact that in most GCSEs you don’t get any points taken off for bad spelling etc, and that the exams are just too easy, and that we just don’t teach kids the basics anymore because it’s not “modern” enough to teach people how to speak/spell/add-up).

    I think you’re right about Cable. Egotists always want to exit with one big grand finale. Showing off till the bitter end.

    I hate New Labour says:

    No, it won’t.

    Just look at Labour and how they failed to find a collective backbone when they were clearly being led by a lunatic.

    These weasels are in power and must know they’re going to be very unpopular and potentially could be out for another 13 years in 2014/5. Hence no-one will want to give this up.

    All this finance stuff is a bit heavy for me – a bit like my old post sack – and I’ve only managed to read the contents page of that book that Gordon gave me. Wish I had got the Shadow Deputy job as there would be less work. Now I’ve got to pretend that I understand things when I don’t. Ed doesn’t care so I’ll just wing it for a bit.

    PS Anyone’s seen my cat lately? Here Jess ….

Dominic Cummings blasts Sir Jeremy:

“Heywood is more important than anyone in the cabinet, apart from Cameron and Osborne, and arguably more important than Osborne. He sits right next to the prime minister. He has him completely by the balls and Cameron does not do anything without Heywood’s permission.”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
