        Was the obvious pun of the day…..

        once more labour win the spin argument – its like for last 6 months in government they spent as much money as possible – laid as many traps (RBS contracts) and now just wait for the inevitable crash…..

        Clearly £45 billion spend in recovering RBS – and liebour know we wont get much of that back – and the next gov will have to give it away at bargain price…. so they have the ability to moan and point finger….

        tory spin miester – where are you ?

        Red Ed and Chuka Brick are incessently quoted and unfortunately heard much too often on BBC news. It is as if they are lily-white and innocent, and neither of them use tax evasion methods to protect their wealth. Also BBC never mention that these idiots gave Hestor his contract to run RBS.
        It should have gone to parliament so that the contract can be made public.
        After all Hestor is only paid as much as a top premier league footballer, which shows how much out of touch Labour and the BBC really is.

          Grumpy Old Man says:

          The contract was set by Darling, presumably with Brown’s approval, in 2009. Labour have just broken the terms of their own contract of employment by bullying the CEO of RBS into accepting less remuneration than was agreed in the contract that they signed. Even more proof that Labour under Miliband are bereft of any ethical standards.

            If you look at the vast exposure RBS has to the Euro collapse, Hestor can work out what £1.4 million worth of their shares will probably be worth in 2014 and therefore isn’t that bothered.

The policing cost will be enormous the coppers will be charging the same prices they charge football clubs and that does not come cheap, by the sounds coming from government troops will be on the streets acting as police, I wonder how much the army charge.

    Work Place Parking Charges.
    Nottingham City Council are implementing work place parking charges for companies within the nottingham city bondary. Boots is one of the companies affected, but most of the charge is to be passed on to the employees. That means that Nottingham City Council is making Boots employees take a pay cut. How can this be legal?
    The revenue is to be used to pay for the tram system extension. So what if the tram system runs nowhere near where you live? This means employees being force to take a pay cut (a tax by any other name) to pay for something they will not use.
    So you end up with lots of employees taking home much less than the £26,000 benifits limit, now with less to spend. How can this possibly be justified, and where does it end? What’s to stop the council increasing parking charges or imposing other charges for different projects.
    What is the government doing – NOTHING!!!
    Beware this could be happening to your company in the future.
