Revolving Dawes

With the sudden, and possibly unwilling, departure of Cabinet Office Permanent Secretary Ian Watmore, the job has been given temporarily to Melanie Dawes. AKA “her in doors” to one Ben Brogan…

The switch-over makes today’s column by the Telegraph’s Deputy Editor about Steve Hilton versus the civil service all the more interesting:

 “Without Mr Hilton, how much will survive? His [Dave’s] proposed public sector reforms, let alone his ideas for slashing the Civil Service, are likely to stall..”

Slashing the civil service doesn’t look to be stalling this afternoon…

    That turned out well didn't it ?? says:

    “If it falls to me to start a fight to cut out the cancer of bent and twisted journalism in our country with the simple sword of truth and the trusty shield of British fair play, so be it. I am ready for the fight. The fight against falsehood and those who peddle it. My fight begins today. Thank you and good afternoon.”

    Jeremy Heywood ex winger for Morgan Stanley fame says:

    Sir Jeremy Heywood, Cabinet Secretary, said:

    “I have greatly valued the enormous contribution Ian has made to the Civil Service since joining in 2004″

    Does anyione know where he was before 2004 ?

    I see he is now going back up North to pursue religious and other passtimes…

    Has he made enough money to retire then ?

    What is the payoff he receives ?

    And why does he not have any wiki reference ?

    I went to secondary school with member of “Queen”(not May) in the 60’s ….He was always carrying his bloody guitar to lessons and doing “riffs”…I always remember our form teacher telling him that he’d never amount to much if he didn’t concentrate on his lessons instead of playing god-awful tunes…..apart from being a famous rock musician and multi-millionaire of course…the teacher is long gone now of course although my ex-classmate is probably one of the most famous Alumini the school ever had

    Morgan Stanley director says:

    Do keep it quiet that you were “Managing Director of the UK Investment Banking Division at Morgan Stanley” just before the Crash and multiple bailouts

    And before that Head of investment banking at HM Treasury

    These are perfect conflicts of interest that the public should never know FFS

    Will he be joining the cabinet?

  31. 31

    I always think that when ministers get a slow handclap or booing from any of these trade bodies its a good sign that they must be doing something right to break up thier cosy existance. During the last 13 years many of them have had a easy time and only now are some of them having to work hard for the money. Lets get rid of more pilgrims

    Historian of our Times says:

    Here is the little bugger Guido

    Manageing Director of Accenture until 2004

    Than propulsed into the Cabinet Office

    How many contracts did Accennture have with the UK Government before during and after his tenure as MD of Accenture and Cabinet Secretary ?

    You can’t make up all this shit

    Revolving doors is not the expression

    Revolving blatant corruption is…

    PS “There is no money Left” Liam Byrne is also of Accentire fame as well, as I remember, what a load of stealing shysters

    Thank ypou for the reference

    This man should be in jail

    And to think that he was Cabinet Secretary

    It beggars belief or as Madoff Mandeslon would say, it buggers belief…

    This 199P article explains by itself how Gordon Macbride put Britain down the shitter

    The awful Melanie Dawes featured (already)

    Most of the people mentioned should be jailed…

    sockpuppet #4 says:

    hold on. It might well have been Mr. J Deacon, as he played lead guitar when younger.

    On the other hand he did concentrate enough on his lessons to get a 1st in a real subject.

    genghiz the kahn says:

    Hewitt and others.

    “Confusion is added to the Andersen angle by the fact that Accenture (the renamed Andersen Consulting), until 2000 its sister company, has also been close to Labour – Trade Secretary Patricia Hewitt used to be its research director.

    The companies split in 2000 when Andersen Consulting left the Andersen Worldwide group following a long running and bitter court case.

    The accounting and consulting arms of the group had been running as separate companies within the group since 1989.”

  51. 51
    accenture lover says:

    you may be joking but it was true.

    Pratmore appointed – then head of civil service HR appointed – you guessed accenture
    pratmore immediately appointed katie “im not english” davies – accenture. The watmore brings into cabinet office, and then moves to a plum job without an interview in health… accenture ran away from healtyh contract…

    then the short fat bloke who ran id cards – forgotten his name… accenture

    he brings in a short bald bloke Bill something or other… accenture. Togehter they bring in 26 other accenture people as civil servants but on grossly inflated salaries

    Guess who renegotiates the contract with accenture for Maude – the bald fat bloke – err

    so all a bunch of tossers, all useleess, all cost tax payers a fortune

    I had a big meeting in London and got everyone to give me money. I raised a trillion euros and ended the crisis.
    I even wrote a great biog book about how clever I was to save the world and end boom and bust

    So stop going on about it.
    Its all been sorted.

    Kelvin Mackenzie says:


    Your point about Hilton is probably true

    But the article you refer to about “they hate us more than we hate them” is very revealing

    But not revealing enough

    The real motivation of the Labour capos is to erxercise power for their own pure benefit

    Just look at them ?

    Has even one served Britain rather than him/herself in the last 15 years ?

    There is not one of the seniors Capos who is honest, not one…

    Taking peerages to endlessly sponge on the taxpayer, liging their pockets in any “taxi” or influence peddling form, selling the national interest down the drain to the ohoshest payer or a bunch of robber baron press capos, the list is endless………..and revolting

    That is the reason Labour wanted and want power…end of story

    I did three years at a critical moent in my careere with Morgan Stanley

    And TB’s Chief of Staff Powell is already there, making a fortune as well

    So may I propose making a telephone call to Morgan Stanley to see if they can hire you for a few million £ per annum when the going gets too tough?

    I can assure you you will never be short of a country estate, a few million in cash and all the travel and luxury you wcould imagine

    Your very humble Cabinet and Corrupted Secretary

    PS TB is at JP Morgan also. That is another possibility.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
