  1. and, it would appear, not worth very much at all by all accounts
  2. If we can1t tell what/for whom/why he is apologising, what chance have we got of understanding the rest of the twaddle to which we may or may not have been subjected to over the last few months? Obfuscation rules OK
  3. You are well equipped to talk about lowered standards. The standard of your posts in your slavish backing of Mr Ashford clearly demonstrate a severe lack of thought and reason. As the man on the Clapham omnibus might have said, you are farting against thunder.
  4. I don`t think that they are making up figures. But the way these figures have been released does leave HQ and DA wide open to suggestions that someone is, rightly or wrongly, monkeying about with the figures which is all so unnecessary. Obfuscation rules.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.........
  9. 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?
  10. Probably one earning way in excess of £33,000
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. very, very worrying figures Carey Street here we come.
  14. I thought it was Eddie Teare`s. If I recall he claimed that it wasn`t ours.
  15. 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
  16. as long as we have a Comin system everything will be dubious
  17. The administration of all departments at the hospital is an utter shambles. Just ask anyone attending the diabetes centre to name just one.
  18. How about a think tank comprising sitting and former MHKs and MLCs plus a couple olf departmental heads. Any nominations?
  19. why do "booze ups in breweries" and "you couldn`t make it up" always spring to mind when reading statements from this department and most others? Again and again. If we can have assessments of the economic benefit of the TT, would it be possible to have such assessments for certain Government departments?
  20. there are many at fault........ Not least Howard Quayle who should have been all over this at least a week ago. Come on Howard, prove that you really are in charge and sort this mess out and let the heads roll of those responsible for this embarassing fiasco. And please not another secret investigation.
  21. I`ve heard of him!! You could have said the names of 20 of the other 23 and I would have forgotten that they were MHKs. A general disgrace, the lot of them.
