Prezza's New Job

John Prescott taking time out of his busy schedule to direct traffic in Hull. How the mighty have fallen.

What the BBC Doesn't Tell You

Bad news for the Department for Education this morning, or so the BBC would have you believe. Apparently a “university think tank” says that “the system of planning teacher training in England has broken down and risks a future shortage of teachers”. Doesn’t sound good, eh?

What the BBC doesn’t tell its readers is that the think tank in question, Million+, is quite obviously a Labour front. No mention that Pam Tatlow, quoted a length in the Beeb piece, ran as a Labour parliamentary candidate at the last election. No mention that their chairman, Michael Gunn, is a Labour luvvie who spoke at their conference last year. Nor that interim Head of Public Affairs is pally with the Fabian Society. And certainly not that the woman he is covering for, Victoria Mills, is a Labour councillor in Southwark and a National Officer for Unison. This is the top story on the education section of the BBC website. It is a classic sockpuppet…

Charity Commission Open Galloway Investigation

Viva Palestina, the dodgy charity founded by George Galloway in 2009 is under statutory inquiry by the Charity Commission for being dodgy. Apparently it has not taken long to work out it is dodgy:

“The charity, which supports people in Palestine, has never filed financial accounts to the Charity Commission.”

Just the casual 900 days overdue…

Why We Need to Privatise Royal Mail Public Sector Efficiency in Action

Parked on a double yellow line just a few metres from the Mount Pleasant sorting office, possibly the largest sorting office in the world, is this Royal Mail van. There this morning with no sign of movement whatsoever, blocking the road for passing traffic.

What could explain this prolonged period of inactivity? Take a peek through the window and all is revealed:

Roll on privatisation…

Judge: You Elect Politicians For This Crap High Court Rules "Bedroom Tax" is Not a Tax

The High Court judgment on housing benefit is pretty sound stuff. Leaving aside that the bit where the judge claims the case “looks very like a list objections to the policy under the guise of a litany of matters”, Lord Justice Laws’ most important paragraph will be used again and again:

“…it is not generally for the courts to resolve the controversies which this insistence involves. That is for elected government. The cause of constitutional rights is not best served by an ambitious expansion of judicial territory, for the courts are not the proper arbiters of political controversy.”

He’s right. The only thing more dangerous than the rabble in SW1 are unelected and unaccountable judges siding with an angry mob. Taxpayers money is wasted on such spurious legal challenges.

Meanwhile, guess which phrase does not appear once in the entire ruling? Nowhere will you find the ridiculous term “Bedroom Tax”. Quite the opposite in fact.

Lord Justice Laws has ruled that these are changes to “a means-tested benefit”.

Amusingly he points out that this “is well known”.

Try telling that to the BBC…

Fake "Dr" Eoin Clarke to Eat His Words

Regular readers will remember serial idiot “Dr” Eoin Clarke. The doctor (of Irish feminism) was making predictions this morning about the spurious High Court challenge to the changes in handouts:

So how did that go for him?

Eat them Clarke, eat them right now.

Quote of the Day

Sky’s Faisal Islam on the mood in Parliament at the moment:

“It’s a totally febrile atmosphere here. It’s kind of like Game of Thrones meets House of Cards – and if you chuck in the Labour Party – Laurel and Hardy too.”
