Cost of Pilgrims Up 29%
£23.6 Million Spent on Taxpayer Funded Union Officials Last Year

Guido was cautious when Francis Maude announced his reforms of trade union facility time, emphasising that they “need to be enforced across the public sector” if the cost to the taxpayer is to come down. New figures reveal the amount spent on Pilgrims – taxpayer funded trade union officials – has in fact increased from £18.3million in 2010/11 to £23.6million in 2012/13. That’s a rise of 29 per cent.

The Pilgrim reforms required government departments to guarantee just 0.1 per cent of wages would be spent on union time. 15 government departments have failed to meet the cap. Despite the crackdown, taxpayer-funded public officials are still spending their time on partisan trade union activity, wasting tens of millions of pounds of taxpayers’ money each year. And the cost is going up, not down. A good New Year’s resolution for the Cabinet Office would be to actually enforce the pledges that it made…

    Once again the media especially the BBC, Guardian and Daily Mirror have been bombarding us with the crap about how wonderful immigration is, especially uncontrolled immigration and that there are thousands of highly skilled foreigners who own donkey’s who come here to work.

    funny thing is the BBC, the Guardian and Daily Mirror don’t employ a single one of these foreigners themselves.

    Imagine the outcry is some left wing bummer at the BBC on 250K a year was replaced by some Romanian on £6.50 and hour.

    Why is it that the left wing organisations that like to promote this mass uncontrolled immigration don’t employ a single journalist themselves?

    But the left deified him because he was a good socialist …. with his snout stuck well into others pockets. In December 2012, Scargill lost a case concerning rent on his flat in the Barbican, London. For years the NUM had been paying £34,000 annual rent for the flat on Scargill’s instructions, without the knowledge of NUM members or many senior officials; Scargill claimed the NUM should continue funding his flat for the rest of his life, and thereafter for any widow who survived him. NUM general secretary Chris Kitchen said: “I would say it’s time to walk away, Mr Scargill. You’ve been found out. The NUM is not your personal bank account and never will be again.”

    The current Labour leader, Ed Miliband, lives in a house valued at £2.3 million with a £400,000 mortgage from Barclays. He earns in excess of £130,000 per year and his wife £200,000. These people are neither on a par nor can possibly have any kind of understanding of the British worker. Over a period of time we have seen workers who are caught between the minimum wage and the living wage suffer the erosion of inflation and the effects of soaring fuel prices on their household income. You can’t imagine the Milibands flinching when their quarterly fuel bill comes in.

    Transport Control department for this (now in public ownership) company insisted that any applicant had to get a quotation for their desired vehicle with said radio removed. They soon realised their mistake when the quotations came in at above the standard cost – due to the extra work involved in removal!

    Ha! ha!

    You would have given your right arm to have a leader like her… and you jolly well know it! Kinnock just did not make the grade and as for Foot…

    Come to think of it, most of what you term we reactionaries would give our right arms to have someone of her stature again too.

    Still, you got the consolation prize: Brown!

    OK. I know I was hacking here! There is no good expression probably as the Romans, for all their merit, had no idea about web blogs.

    I even admitted to it. Give me a break!

    But TT made a good point about them to me once. He said that they were probably quite close to balloon flight. Had they succeeded in this, think how different history might have been. We would all be speaking Latin as a first language and maths would be an absolutely beastly subject!

    Siegfried Sassoon, from a Baghdadi Four by Twoish family, was a Labourite and a keen hunter – he wrote ‘Memoirs of a Fox Hunting Man’, amongst much else .

    Whilst I am not of a labour persuasion, I admire Sassoon’s writing and his service in WWI.

    Cameron, no matter what nonsense the Scotsman Blair pretended to have finessed through his corrupted Parliament using Scottish votes, the crime of treason still remains what it always has in the minds and customs of the English people. You have one day left to redeem yourself. Close the border.

    You have to understand the plight of mine workers over the years to see just why they were so anti upper class
    They were treated as slaves by the rich in an industry where human life was worth nothing to the mine owners
    the average fine in Victorian Britain for a miners death in your pit , was one shilling Hundreds of thousands died underground in vile conditions all to fuel the industrial revolution , which without coal would not have happened for at least another century possibly two
    I was of the same opinion as most on here until i read about the appalling
    treatment and conditions imposed on these people by the wealthy

    As a country we are now almost totally reliant on foreign imported fuel
    which in this present climate is a very dangerous position to be in
    rightly or wrongly we have lost our right to self determination as a nation , becoming ever more reliant on outside help our country as a result of “the anti union legislation”now produces very little , ie ships , trains , power , engineering , cars,steel all things which we were once world leaders in

    also the fact that Thatcher and Dave and all the lefty PM’s s in between
    sold off all the state assets (family silver) we as a country can no longer pay off our debts because any money from the tax take , doesn’t cover the running of the country and all the money our governments choose to give away

    And before you start bleating i vote Tory

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.”
