Taking the Kids to Saturday’s Big Event

Mrs Fawkes has chosen to go to New York and left Guido in sole charge of Miss Fawkes (5 11/12)  and Ms Fawkes (3 3/4) for the whole of a weekend where Grandad and Grandma Fawkes are unavailable. So how to entertain them this weekend is a concern. Actually it is a gnawing fear in the pit of Guido’s stomach.

Sunday is sorted at a friend’s barbecue. Saturday is a long day, Guido expects to be woken by Ms Fawkes around dawn demanding CBeebies be switched on. Breakfast will be easy, chocolate croissants should put daddy in the good books and leave only twelve hours until bedtime stories. Fortunately there is a big event on Saturday which will keep them entertained all day. Guido is of course referring to the opening of Peppa Pig World. You didn’t think there was an alternative, did you?

Friday Caption Competition

We have a copy of Heather Brooke’s The Silent State: Secrets, Surveillance and the Myth of British Democracy to give away to a co-conspirator who comes up with an amusing caption.  Heather was the campaigner who went to court to get MPs expenses released under the Freedom of Information Act. Without her crooked MPs would still be pontificating in parliament instead of doing porridge. Usual rules apply.

IPSA Say “That Will Do Nicely”

IPSA is under prolonged and heavy attack from MPs who are using every trick in the book to undermine and thwart it. It is fair to say that IPSA was a badly conceived idea produced in a panic during the dying days of the Brown tyranny, it wastes a lot of money itself and could in truth be better organised. Nevertheless one fact strikes Guido, the new expenses regime has saved £18 million. The fact that MPs hate the bureaucracy created might make them think about the quangos and regulations they inflict upon us. The political class has only itself to blame. Remember 52% of MPs had to repay fiddled expenses…

Back in 2009, before IPSA was set up, the Sunlight Centre produced recommendations which included a House of Commons debit card as the best way to regulate legitimate expenses. The transactions would as normal be electronically recorded and could thus be published online in real-time, the spending limits would be automatic and bureaucracy would be minimal. The idea was first proposed in Disinfecting Parliament, a report that recommended a number of measures based on best practice in the private sector that could easily be transferred to IPSA. Two years later IPSA has finally announced a plan to introduce debit cards…
