BREAKING: GOD to Quit, Job Split

It was well known that Cabinet Sectary Gus O’Donnell was on his way out, and rumours were afoot that there was some consternation about appropriate candidates to fill his boots. Well it seems the plan is to split up his job instead:

Jeremy Heywood is in the line for the newly defined Cabinet Secretary role, but was expected to get the whole thing. Christopher Hope reports that a Head of Civil Service is still to be decided.

GOD isn’t going until the end of the year, which makes you wonder about the timing of such an announcement…

UPDATE: It certainly wasn’t GOD himself that leaked this news. According to the Guardian’s Jonathan Haynes, he is currently in a meeting with the MoD Permanent Secretary Ursula Brennan trying to sort the Fox investigation out.

    I bet he’s off to cash in on the board of a few FTSE companies.

    Timing’s odd. Has he been bitten by a rabid Fox?

    Might explain why the Cabinet office is hiding his expenses. Not a peep from them about GOD’s official credit card statements.

    Given they are on report anyway with the ICO, they might have a few awkward questions to answer.

    Very alarming – thought you were making a theological point there to do with the demise of the Apple entrepreneur.

    Now we get two scheming bastards on the public payrol doing one job.

    An ever expanding public sector gravy train – is that why we voted Conservative?

    Never again.

    Is that the Guy that we didn’t VOTE for Who basically told the IRAQ enquiry to go and F–k themselves over the communications between the WAR mongers Bliar and Bush. Or the Unelected Guy who told Broon that he could NOT investigate Murdoch Empire. Are we sure he wasn’t really running the country and telling BLIAR what to do, other wise some Story may be leaked to the PRESS that may embarass the PM???? I just wonder.

    Well it's a thought says:

    Have they decided it’s time to clear the uncivil servant Liebour shills out the top of the uncivil service, they would do better and save billions if they found out who signed the contracts for PFI, Aircraft Carriers and make them pay for them.

    The dumb bastard tried to claim credit for the coalition even though his involvement was simply to book the rooms and get the biccies. Conceited chump – bye bye and fuck off.

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
