Parliamentary Pressure on Pilgrims

The Sunday Telegraph this morning has a leader on the problem of public sector “pilgrims” – full time taxpayer-funded  trade union officials. There is widespread support for a move against the system in the coalition. LibDems are no friends of big unions and will be happy to indulge in union bashing with a purpose – to save hundreds of millions in Whitehall and local councils annually.

Eric Pickles and Francis Maude floated the moves at Tory conference, in parliament backbenchers including Dominic Raab, Aidan Burley and David Morris are outriders for action. Shifting union activists to front line services is hard to argue against… 

Huhne Should Be Sacked for Lying and Briefing Against May

So Chris Huhne’s fingerprints were on the story he gave to the Guardian’s Patrick Wintour which ran on Friday evening. Huhne has just coughed to the BBC’s Politics Show to being the source of the information that May’s cat speech reference was plagiarised from a speech UKIP’s Nigel Farage gave in his own Eastleigh constituency.

Huhne is presumably the source of the anonymous quote:

“Not only has Ms May been caught out making up stories about the Human Rights Act for cheap laughs, she has been plagiarising her clap lines from the UK Independence party.” 

It should be noted that psycho -Huhne lied on the record about this to the BBC’s Peter Henley when he claimed that his tweet was to a staff member. It was once considered a resigning matter for a Cabinet minister if he was caught lying. If a lowly SpAd was caught doing this it would be a sackable offence. Surely Cabinet collective responsibility demands Huhne goes – Guido is sure Clegg would love to give him the sack. He has been caught lying and briefing against colleagues. What does it take to get rid of Huhne?

UPDATE: Huhne said “I completely confess, I own up and I have apologised to Theresa May about drawing attention to this public matter that was on a local website.” Very big of him. It turns out he hasn’t actually spoken with May, he merely left her a voicemail.

Quote of the Day

Adam Spiegel, producer of Nazi themed “The Producers” musical says…

“Margate seemed a perfect place to start the promotion. I’m disappointed but not entirely surprised to see that UKIP are trying to hitch a publicity ride on the back of the show.”
