    Jane Birkin from Paris says:

    I know that little fella Sarkozy was not everyone’s cup of tea but under him at least the wine cellars were sold off and guests offered a selection of bottled water and fruit juices.

    French Socialists are not adverse to a good vintage when they can invoice the taxpayer.

    “Immigrants have a lot to offer Britain”. Yet we see no return and are hurt by the hidden consequences.

    Clegg has a lot to offer. Yet he will not even pay his bar bill.

    Having “a lot” and actually delivering the goods, are not related.

    We live in a country that is belief based. Everyone votes on beliefs.
    Yet no one actually has any evidence at all. They are just promises and predictions. None of which are based on any actually past behaviour.

    Politics in this country is a religion.

    It’s the Co-op moaning. I suspect that it’s a wheeze by their PR advisers to take the heat off the ir ripping off OAPs who were daft enough to buy their bonds and are now to be stuffed.

    dr finlay's cashbook says:

    don’t assume its all gp’s in a practice who are benefiting – just a few may be equity partners

    the rate they pay their employee dr’s may well be a realistic ‘going rate’ (and the employees will do most of the work)

    since the equity-owning gps’s are quasi civil self-servants – we the PBT — should see the full accounts of all practices – and judge for ourself the meaning of ‘equity’

    nye bevan’s admission that he hadn’t been able to deal properly with the doctors’ powers in the original nhs has been ignored by politicos across the speculum (sic) ever since

    Guido's Newspaper says:

    TALKING of bad smells, the failure by police to investigate the evidence of industrial-scale phone and computer hacking by top law firms continues to stink.
    The Serious Organised Crime Agency is sitting on enough evidence to put leading executives in jail for years.
    From what we know of this secretive operation, the cases are open and shut. Yet the Metropolitan Police seem curiously reluctant to act. Do they have something to hide?

    It is not his fault. He could not help his decadent life style funded on the suffering of others.

    The people that ultimately pay him are to blame. Why did they not set up fake cases, and randomly check the response of these people.

    We must introduce random observation of every tax paid person in this country. What is the point in having Ombudsmen and commissioners if all they do it sweep up the damage. Then allow the situation to repeat. We need to catch these people red handed. More importantly, make them fear being caught out in their dishonesty.

    We hear it all the time that our young are idle and worthless so we must import their replacements. Maybe it is actually the managers of the UK that are idle and worthless, and can not cope with the enthusiasm and honesty of youth. They only need the down trodden, to maintain their corrupt empires. No one with integrity need apply.

    Just for once I would like some lying, politically and morally bankrupt politician to clearly and honestly point by point (if they were ethically and psychologically capable of it) to tell the native British population, just how exactly illegal immigration or for that matter, mass immigration at the crazy unsustainable levels we have witnessed, have remotely ‘benefitted’the country, it’s native population or their families one single atom!

    Common Sense says:

    1) The CoOp also control Unity Bank, which is the banker to every Trade Union. So the CoOp and Unity between them are bankers to the Liebor Party and every Trade Union. They are also bankers to the LibDems. CoOp and Unity have made very big loans to their “political” brothers.

    2) The CoOp has been found to be short of capital and was advised of that by the FSA.

    3) The CoOp was chosen as the preferred bidder to be “given” the Lloyds Branch’s that they were being made to exit under EU law. This was known as project “Verde”. As part of the transfer the Lloyds branches would have come with significant “capital”.

    4) Would the (Liebor) politicians and their Union paymasters who are in hock to the CoOp and Unity with bog loans, want their “own” bank to go down the plughole… would they want their loans called in, would they want to refinance those “soft” loans on commercial terms with other banks, or would they like to keep the CoOp and Unity banks in business, whatever the cost ?

    5) Why was the CoOp chosen as preferred bidder ?
    What influence did Liebor, the Unions and LibDems have over the choice of CoOp as preferred bidder ?

    Its all very very smelly and reeks of Politicians and Unions trying to save a dead horse (the CoOp) with a cynical ploy to give it a big chunk of Lloyds for free, ultimately at the expense of the taxpayers who bailed out Lloyds.

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.”
