    Cut & paste

    Dilli, did you miss the very recent apparent plagiarism of a document relating to end of life care? And in the previous Keys a widely reported instance of plagiarism by an erstwhile MHK? And recently in the UK the plagiarism of a contract relating to an embryo shipping company, apparently copied by HMG from a catering contract! Anybody know if there are/were any issues of copyright? That could be expensive.
  2. They don`t do a few grand, not worth getting out of bed for. And, in any case they are probably up to their eyes in it negotiating with Chinese banks. Rumour has it that there are six of them and these things take time.
  3. Never forget, the money being spent on these junkets is NOT the taxpayers money. Eddie Teare told me, so it must be right.

    Did none of them manage to wangle a trip to Davos for the World Economic Forum. Surely as the eighth richest nation.........

    FOI nonsense

    Exactly The Comin system has a lot to answer for. And, do we reallty need a Cabinet Office, other than to massage cerrtain persons egos?
  6. Probably one earning way in excess of £33,000
  7. Sorry Uhtred, I was working on 24 keys plus 8 legco plus the speaker but you are likely right. Either way, I agree we would not notice if 30 of them (any 30) made no further contribution, some of them fall into that category already. What a false dawn the latest election was.
  8. Exactly finlo!! Especially given the latest fiasco at the DHSC and the reported spiralling of CS salaries. Private Fraser had a phrase for it and, as time goes on, he is likely to be proved right. Heaven help our own younger generation.
  9. very, very worrying figures Carey Street here we come.
  10. I thought it was Eddie Teare`s. If I recall he claimed that it wasn`t ours.
  11. I suggest that the current system has indeed bottomed out. Just consider a few of the recent knighthoods awarded to politicians :- Danny Alexander Michael Fallon (yes, him!) Oliver Letwin Nick Clegg!!!!!!! Vince Cable I rest my case
  12. as long as we have a Comin system everything will be dubious
  13. The administration of all departments at the hospital is an utter shambles. Just ask anyone attending the diabetes centre to name just one.
