Who Will Cover for Gordon’s Pregnant PPS?

Guido has wondered in the past what exactly Alison McGovern does as Gordon Brown’s PPS. He never turns up or speaks, so why the dubious honour? Given McGovern is pregnant, speculation is mounting as to who will fill in for her when she goes on maternity leave.

If she’s not replaced then questions will arise about her onerous and demanding role.

Backbenchers should form an orderly queue to make their pitch for the job.

            About half of all state schools in England and Wales are being affected by a strike by UK public sector workers.

            Picket lines have been set up as three teaching unions join Public and Commercial Services union members such as jobcentre and border control staff to protest at planned pension changes.

            They say the plans mean more work and contributions for a reduced pension.

      Greeks are being kicked and tear gassed into a police state.

      Read http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-13960602

      I know, it’s from a Europhile apologist, but even he can see the enormity of the implications for liberty of what is happening now to the Greeks.

      Fuck Hari, Huhne, Brown etc.

      Please get hold of those in our government and invite them to justify our complicity in the realisation of an authoritarian Europe.

        Helpful says:

        Read the article, it is based on a false premise:

        “What Greece is being forced to do is threatening the legitimacy of a democratically elected government and putting at risk the legitimacy of the political system in general. And the question for the EU and IMF is simple: is it worth it”

        No one is forcing the Greek Parliament to do anything. The choice is simple, if they want the EU and IMF to advance further loans to meet the cash demands caused by the loan redemptions due later this year they need to cut the size of the Greek State and its spending. If the Greek Parliament doesn’t want to do it, they can default on the debts due for redemption shortly. As Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan pointed, the problem with Socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money: the Greeks are at that point. In my view they should default and should have done so a while back. But regardless of which route they go down the Greek State is about to get smaller because the combination of stipends from the EU, tax collections and borrowings is insufficient to maintain the current size of the Greek State. A bit like the UK in 1976: BTW Dennis Healey remains the only Chancellor of the Exchequer to cut Government spending in money terms in modern times. The only real debate for the Greeks is how the remaining cake is cut up but it is a much smaller cake. The second issue for them is the policy reponse; the obvious one is supply side reform with deregulation – unfortunately that doesn’t fit well with the socialist-inclined Greek politicians and is not possible within the Euro or the EU. They also need to sort out the corruption and bribery issues which impede growth and tax collection; not that I am in favour of taxes but if you are going to have them at least attempt to collect them properly.


        • 204
          Major Eyeswater says:

          My point (and the Beeboid article) referred to the authroitarian coercion of the Greek PEOPLE, not it’s corrupt government. Coercion that insists that membership of the Euro is the key rather than the prison. The Greek people will, rightly, refuse to be governed until their interests are placed before those of the EU / Euro by their government.

          Imagine if we’d listened to the Huhnes of this world and the UK adopted the Euro in 2001. After the credit crunch hit do you think you would support a c25% reduction in living standards to avoid a currency crisis for the Euro? Or would you perhaps urge a return to Sterling?

          What if the Germans and French then told our Parliament that there was no choice but to stay in the Euro and do as we are told? What if our Parliament echoed such a falsehood and forced it through?

          At what point in this process would you wish to assert a right of national self-determination?

          There is absolutely zero chance of Greece paying its debts without the “obvious” supply-side reform of leaving the Euro. This option is not open to the Greek people because of the complicity of its ruling class in the Euro project. As a result the best interests of the Greek people have been betrayed by local politicians keen to do the bidding of foreign masters.

          Like you I am pretty scornful of Greece’s decade of economic and fiscal stupidity. I regard the bailouts as immoral because they are designed only to temporise for the benefit of foreign creditors, they will increase the Greek debt burden and they will make the eventual adjustment worse.

          It is a mistake to think that the current economic predicament of the Euro is in any way more important or significant than the authoritarian implications of the measures taken to defend it.

          International currency unions are the fast lane on the road to serfdom.

You only have to look at the Ballses, Milibands, etc, and indeed their Uni mate Steph ‘Kinkyboots’ Flanders who seems to have shagged them all…

    Equality says:

    There’s something I don’t get. I’ve always supported and believed in equality for women, especially in pay. Now that the pension age is being equalised, the likes of Harman and unions are up in arms. But that’s equality. How can they argue for different treatment?

      Rick the Roman says:

      They women, start carping on about having kids and looking after them and how that affects their earning potential hence pensions – so in the twisted minds of HH and gang, women need to either retire earlier of have larger pensions than men to be equal.

    Today we will have blanket coverage of the millions of people in the UK who are at work today.
    A spokesman said ”We, the silent majority will be working hard again today, earning money. We are not in dispute with the Government because radical Union leaders want a bit of publicity.We do not enjoy inflated final salary pension schemes and so will just be carrying on as normal”
    We will have full TV and Radio coverage of these brave people as they don’t struggle against the tyranny of Government trying to balance it’s books. Follow us on twitter as we are live with normal people doing their jobs.


    • 115
      Eamonn U Ensis says:

    As i look out of the window I am amazed to discover that indeed the world is continuing as it ever does despite the public sector being on strike. Seriously, I cannot see a riot unfolding before nor do I see britain devolving to some pre-insdutrial hell hole.

    Given the utmost critical importance of their work I expected societal collapse and the imminent onrush of armageddon.

    However I will stress it is still only 12:49. Can i expect at least some fires and the occasional random murder before tea time? I hope so otherwise our civil servant friends might find its all been a collossal waste of time. At least its wasted time not at the tax payers expense…..

    I wonder how Bob Crow will suffer without todays wages…..oh, right. They’re not all in it together are they?

    BBC 24 hours cuts coverage.

    Update______as it happens.

    Our reporter is outside a primary school in Chester.

    “Well, there’s no potato painting going on here today. i expect these children will suffer and may not be able to make up the time before key-stage-2 colouring in.
    Harry Potter is going unread. ”

    and at the council offices in Hartlepool..

    “Its a sad day. Some poor people wanting help in understanding how to ensure equality targets can be attained throughout the county left disappointed.
    I saw hanging baskets unwatered in the high street and the grass on the town’s roundabouts is millimeters higher today.”

    And at the port of over…

    “Yes, here they are no checks on anyone coming into the country at all. But I understand they are not on strike here. this is just normal procedure.”

    Well we’ll be back to let you know how the very fabric of society has been ripped apart by this lawful and necessary protest in just a few minutes.
    But first some more adverts for Luther.

    yay! my posting on the BBC blog about pensions is highest-rated (for now) –



    vote now via the up-arrow, and tell those public sector workers that not everybody in the private sector wants to subsidise other people’s pensions that are 4 times as good as anything we can ever get:

    “The proposed public sector pensions will still be infinitely better than anyone else can get in the real world, and will also still be massively subsidised by people from the private sector (who in turn can never hope to get the same level of pension unless they pay 4 times as much into it as a public sector worker).
    Unaffordable? that’s debatable
    Unfair? definitely (to the private sector that is)”

    If Unison can just manage to organise a mass walk out in AUgust for a couple of weeks we will have the deficit licked tout suite

    ps my wife is a teacher and she says that teachers are educated enough to realise that the pension thing is only them being brought in line with reality and that its only the champagne socialist leftist militant teachers that are causing all the trouble, and also that that they are the ones that are crap hopeless teachers that can only just manage to get a satisfactory rating out of offsted

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
