Another Consolation Prize for Sacked Tory (Male)

Yet another Tory sacked at the reshuffle has had the blow softened with a fancy title and financial reward. James Duddridge, until recently a whip, will be the next Chair of the Regulatory Reform Committee. The  tedium of the role is compensated with a nice £14,582 salary top up.

It used to be that when you got sacked you got nothing in return.

It seems that rule only applies to women now.

      “Chair of the Regulatory Reform Committee”, is it another non-job, a regulator to regulate a load of other Quangos, thought these regulatory bodies were under the control of the relevant minister.

        No doubt he will be able to go on all expenses jollies to all the best countries in the world with a job description like that.

        It’s a division of the department of Administrative Affairs, and very very Important.

      Isn’t Baroness Warsi a woman? Or is the Senior Minister for F&C affairs unpaid?

      And we are talking about the public sector, where rewards for failure are hardly unusual.

    If sacking meant you got nothing in return then it’ll be news to Kinnock whose reward for losing the 1992 election was a lifetime of gravy for him, his missus and their kids. Likewise Chris Patton. Likewise Speaker Martin. Likewise John Prescott. And so on and so forth.

    In politics failure is richly rewarded.

    It is 40 Miles for a Crow to fly from Gloucester to Birmingham.
    It is 188 miles for a crow to fly from Gloucester to Penzance.

    Why does the BBC consider Gloucester to be in the South West and not The Midlands?

Mycroft says:

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!
