Treasury’s £1 Million Stimulus

Just as the Q3 GDP figures were announced this morning a perfectly-timed FOI response landed in Guido’s inbox. Between January and October this year the Treasury spent almost £1 million of taxpayers’ money renovating their Horse Guards Road offices. The cash was spent on a project to “optimise usable space”, with hundreds of thousands spent on building brand new workstations, receptions and infrastructure and buying new furniture. That’s one way of softening the construction downturn

UPDATE: Treasury sources get in touch to stress that the project will double the occupancy of the building, freeing up space elsewhere and so saving money. Twice as many Treasury officials under one roof, what a thought…

    To be fair, a million pounds spent on a pile the size of the Treasury is just running maintenance.

    We never spent a penny of Taxpayers’ money during The Reign of Terror 1997-2010. It was either an ‘investment’ or it would have been at zero cost through a PFI initiative which will end up costing your grandchildren £ 1.9 billion.

    In my area, the City Council – one of the worst run in the country- is putting the finishing touches to its proposed move its offices from one area of the city to another. Having spent millions moving a few years ago, they now want to move back to stimulate private investment in the area. Not content with cutting services because it has been so incompetently run, they now want to borrow £40m to complete the new build and move! Spend, borrow, spend, borrow repeat ad nauseum

    Clegg talks Double Dutch

    Mistrust is deepening between the Europhobic David Cameron and the Eurofanatic Nick Clegg. I hear Downing Street insisted that a No 10 minder attend a meeting in the Deputy Prime Minister’s Cabinet Office lair with Herman Van Rompuy of the European Council. Van Rompuy is that elusive creature, a near-famous Belgian. Clegg is even rarer – a polyglot Brit. The Lib Dem internationalist has five languages: French, German, Spanish, Dutch and Tory. Irritated at No 10’s snooping, Clever Cloggs conducted the entire session in Dutch, so the PM’s cloth-eared spy was left fuming in the corner, listening but not understanding a double- Dutch conversation.

    Ah but has pressing all that space into service led to the deficet going up ….

    Ed Conway didnt quite get the useful answers , well not yet although he did manage to make the chancellor look offended , not that having buinesses doing bns of buisness and no corporation tax should be good reason to look offended or anything , but Adam Boulton continued his good week , although this new “there never was a deficet ” line was a bit much for me . However Ed Balls was all pasted in goose fat and ready for his cross channel attempt , sploosh hadnt even got out of Dover , when he started chewing at deficet going up …Adam “yeah but wouldnt the deficet be going up under your plan”
    Ed: the deficet was decreasing at the general election ….
    And so the crack appeared …. but wasnt made much use of ….. just how much would the deficet be by now if we had the balls plan ….. How many more people would be in work …… how much is Ed Milliband worth …..
    Ed said all sorts new things , selective time moments , not really a deficet problem , but yes would have to reduce it , weak growth not like other EU countries , well at least not like them until the end of the month , have to try him on , what % interest rate had he factored into his figures if he had lost the AAA rating and how can you calculate growth when borrowing reduces the margin ….. clealry difficult subjects for a man who spent so long in treasury … :)

    US, Germany, China, France, etc are in trouble, they are expected to fall into recession. So exports will fall.

    Once extra bank holiday, Olympia’s, etc are striped growth is around 0.2%. Also total benefits paid are going up. Osborne’s economic miss management doesn’t help either. In other words he is borrowing 22% more than last year to feed and keep people at home.

    Based on these UK will end up getting back to recession.

    When Germany’s power grid operator announced the exact amount of next year’s green energy levy on Monday, it came as a shock to the country. The cost burden for consumers and industry have reached a “barely tolerable level that threatens the de-industrialization of Germany”, outraged business organisations said.”

    That’s Bollocks. Wind turbines will make us all rich. We can export our wind to other countries.
    And the taxes we will put on your energy bill will easily pay the subsidy and a bit more.

    Ok, so the average energy bill will be £14,000 but so what? You can offset that by not using any energy at all. Your own sense of Eco-recycling-righteous-superior do gooding will give you a warm glow that will keep you warmer than any coal fire.

    It takes courage to stand up to black, regardless of whether it is mailed or not.
    In terms of the darkness that is said to be our economy, the phrase healing has come into fore.

    Is the economy hurt?
    it is being healed, apparently. This requires courage.
    it takes courage to change ourselves. is external change possible otherwise?

    what matters is who has power, savile did not, the rest is just being economical with the truth.

    Not double the Treasury officials. The building now houses a large number of Cabinet Office staff who used to live in 22 Whitehall. That building has now been handed over to DfID, allowing them to leave the rented building near Buck House which was costing them millions a year.

    You should be happy, a large amount of taxpayers’ money is being saved by this project.

    Wouldn’t want any of you lot to work out who actually pulled and continues to pull the strings of the Fascists AND Communists – but who have stood above them ‘at arms length’ and have been having a right old laugh – whilst making billions at pitting two parties at one another for decades while the moneylenders couldn’t lose which ever faction won out (they pull the strings of BOTH SIDES) – not that the ML’s want it all to end. So their moneymaking goes on and on and on and on …. hello…

    When they ask you to type in Nos and letters [there aint none save a long useless string] so click on enter – ‘then’ enter what you see – took me 3 goes to get in even then. They really are exposed by their overt obfuscation and attempts to make things difficult – A cult of hanging on to their ill gotten gains.

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.”
