Gloria Gives Chase

Their tension in the House has been noted previously. First it was those passionate gazes held for an extra second across the despatch box in hot and heavy Culture Media and Sport sessions, but it seems Gloria just can’t get enough of Ed Vaizey. While Ed was busy chatting up/to the somewhat hostile MumsNet crowd for their lunchtime web interview, his shadow just couldn’t stay away, wading in with her own questions:

Ed’s reply was short and firm.

      I think she would have to wear a very large paper sack before she got anywhere near my giblets. I would also require to have been sectioned under the Mental Health Act as a pre-requisite. Let’s face it, she has nothing to offer the world of politics other than a series of recycled opinions. Risible at best are her utterances (you may have guessed I’m not her greatest fan).

    O/T – the higher rate tax band is coming down by a grand, but the personal allowance is going up by a grand.

    Does that really drag in 750k people? How?

      But I’d guess it won’t do a damn thing for the economy ! So far everything the current tossers have done to try and cut spending has seen another way of spending the savings appear. (Irish Bank bailout, Increase in EU contributions etc etc.)

        My point is that reducing the band but increasing the PA should have very little effect – it’ll apply at roughly the same salary.

        The Spectator is speculating that the PA may even increase by another £500.

        I don’t see how 750k extra people will pay 40%.

      Towards the bottom of the page….

      As a result of these changes, an individual earning £7,475 a year will pay £275 a year less in income tax and National Insurance.

      Those earning up to about £35,000 a year will also be better off

      Good. Helping the less well off.

      The 750K being brought into the higher tax band will be 750K of the six million public servants marching inexorably up their ‘common pay spine’.

    John Bercow definitely going to the reds on a free transfer. He agreed personal terms some years ago.

    *** Reds have had a record £90 million bid for Real UN’s top performer, Tony Blair turned down.
    Blair’s agent, Cherie, said the offer was derisory. Blair himself wants to ensure he remains playing on the world, rather than local stage. ***

    *** David Laws ending loan to Torquay and returning to the Blues. But not until the summer transfer window..****

    *** Gordon Brown’s application to be the new Andy Grey is ‘under consideration’***

    *** Vince Cable remains transfer listed but so far no offers from blues or reds. Still has a niggling foot injury from when he put it into his mouth. ***

    *** Want away play maker Andy Coulson has been released on a free {not free for long. London Mets have shown a periodic interest. }***

    *** David Cameron has stated he has not ruled out the possibility of move into Europe, but not in this window.***

    *** George Galloway has been appointed manager of the non-league socialist worker’s party. ***

    Can anyone see that Pickles is warned of the toy wind turbine mess he has been left. (<25m)

    It seems that you can build toy turbines anywhere now. Greenbelt, tourist areas, historic areas.

    One idiot owner has just declared his actual generating ability in the local newspaper. It turns out that IF he was paid a reasonable 5p kWh it would take 60 years to pay back!

    He is laughing because he gets 8 times this for his electricity. So his will pay back the capital in 7.5 years.
    Shame the warrantee on the turbine he bought is only 5 years!

    The feedin tariff subsidy he is getting is equivalent to 5800 households paying 5% green surcharge on their elecy bills! So I assume that means you city dwellers are paying for them.

    Latest planning application seems to miss the point entirely and has sited it in a low wind area. (Gov data) The application does not even reference any wind values or surveys at all! Do you get the drift yet. The system is corrupt. Seems you don't have to even make any electricity, they will estimate it!

    If you wanted to make 10% of the UK electricity from these toys, it would mean 12 per km2! That is approximately 300m between them. Every single square km of the UK

    (Please ask him to look at current appeals.)
