Council Pension Black Holes.

I have just read Ambush Predator's Blog called "You've got to pick a pocket or two..."

An extract from the blog;

Colchester Council is set to use £250,000 of taxpayers’ money to increase its pensions contribution as it battles against a £51million blackhole.

That got me thinking for the reason why so many councils have employed more 'Parking SS officers Attendants'.

According to this article, in Conwy County;

ILLEGALLY parked motorists paid more than £1.15 million in parking charges across Conwy county in the last three years, it has emerged.

I wonder how much of the money obtained through the fines goes to pay for the wages and pensions of the council workers, not just in Conwy County, but all over the country

Supreme Court ruling: British soldiers abroad 'not protected by human rights laws'

That is the headline to this article.

Soldiers are putting their lives on the line everyday.

The supreme court say that Soldiers are not protected by 'Human Rights Laws', but the soldiers DO have the right to have the best equipment and the best protection there is.

I have a question

Are the Unions, like Unite, more upset by the 1.3 million public sector job losses or are the Unions more upset about the loss of income?

Is anyone really shocked by this?

The Great Inertia Sector: A whistleblower's account of council work where staff pull six-month sickies

Most of us knew that this was going on, if you have tried to call a council department you know what I mean.

What should happen is that councils should be forced to work under what the private sector has work under. Every penny should be accounted for in every council. It is our money to begin with.

Any person who says they are sick should be forced to go to a known doctor and be assessed.

What has, and is still happening should never of been allowed to happen in the first place. The government should sack any and all slackers in the councils who refuse to change, and replace them with people who want to get things done for their communities.

Will it happen, who knows, but I'm not holding my breath.

Isn't he allowed to take a day off?

After the Spanish inquisition Congress hearing, I think Tony Hayward is allowed to have a day off, but no Barry Barak Obama, through his chief of staff, says it is another gaff.

This coming from someone who promised so much in the Presidential race, who gave hope to millions of people, but has failed miserably since he has become president.

Will Obama be re-elected in 2 years time.

The Saville report

The following is taken from Deniersaurus Rex Blog.

I believe this is very accurate of what is in the Saville report.

McGuiness Isn't Good For You
Having now had a chance to go through the Saville report on the 1972 Londonderry incident I now regret the flippancy of my previous post.

I am now of the opinion that the £200 million that the report has cost was real value for money. The complete list of conclusions is as follows :-

1. 14 peace loving, totally innocent, catholic, hug bunnies were callously gunned down by the evil Brits.

2. Martin McGuiness was only in the area armed with a machine gun because he was getting rid of moles from a friends lawn.

3. Adolf Hitler was a much misunderstood friend of the Jews.

4. Pol Pot never even visited Cambodia, let alone kill half it's population.

5. The 9/11 atrocity was perpetrated by Buddhists.

6. Muhammad liked to have his portrait painted.

7. David Kelly committed suicide.

8. Robert Mugabe really loves white folks.

9. Gordon Brown abolished boom and bust.

10. Tony Blair never lies and his wife is not an unspeakable whore.

11. The "Hockey Stick" graph represents a piece of well researched science.

12. Obama has a clue.

13. The Moon is made of cheese.

I think you will agree that these findings are well worth the cost.

As this is not a sweary blog I cannot fully express the contempt I have for Cleggeron 1 and his completely inappropriate apology. Suffice to say the man is a complete smeg head of a soaking wet liberal, shiny faced, can't even win an election against Gordon bloody Brown, sniveling, embarrassment.

All that's left now is for us taxpayers to pick up the compensation bill.

I am waiting for what will happen next.

The families from Bloody Sunday have their justice, but what about all the people the terrorists have murdered during the troubles.

Go to and read the atrocities that happened. How many of those victims, and victims families, have received justice?

Where's Gordon

Just read Prodicus' Blog where he asks the following;

Are the electors of of Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath being properly represented by their highly-paid and highly-pensioned Member?

It is a genuine question, most MPs are at Westminster or at their constituencies, but where is Gordon Brown?

He was elected to represent Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath, if Gordon Brown isn't representing them, who is?

Live Life to the fullest.

It's only when we truly know and understand that we have a limited time on earth -- and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up -- that we will begin to live each day to the fullest, as if it was the only one we had.

I think they should of let him in

Just been reading this article, and I had a thought.

If this '42-year-old British man with a history of inciting racial violence' wanted to gain entry to South Africa they should of let him in.

This guy, if the article is correct, likes to incite racial violence here in the UK.

If this 42 year old wants to incite racial violence in South Africa, where it is predominantly black, I say let him in and take him to one of the townships, and lets see how long he would last in there.

It is right he was stopped from gaining entry to South Africa, but wouldn't it be nice to see how some hardcore racists act when they are in a country that is predominately black.

What are Labour trying to do?

The following is another great article by Jeff Randell.

Gordon Brown's henchmen are rewriting history as we sink into the red

The time for delusion, deceit and dodgy economic figures is over, argues Jeff Randall

If you're less than thrilled by today's World Cup kick-off, fret not: there's plenty of good sport elsewhere on television. My
favourite viewing is the disintegration of Labour's effort to defend its disgraceful record in government. Some of the own goals are spectacular. Faced with the horror of exclusion from office for at least five years, former ministers – Ed Balls, Lord Myners and others – are rewriting their part in the policies that helped wreck the United Kingdom's social cohesion and financial solidity. Not since Shaggy's chart-topping song It Wasn't Me have we been treated to such a ridiculous attempt at self-exculpation.

With the repudiation of Gordon Brown's locust years by his erstwhile henchmen gathering pace, it can be only a matter of time before one of the candidates to replace him calls for a truth and reconciliation commission. This is what happens when tyranny crumbles. Until then, Liam Byrne, the Clunking Fist's most visible apologist, has been given the task of justifying his old boss's budgetary vandalism. The poor chap looks like a second-hand car salesman, trying to persuade furious customers that the dodgy vehicles they bought were, in fact, perfectly sound motors at the time of purchase.

For those of us who flagged up the debilitating consequences of unbridled immigration and debt accumulation, the sound of Mr Balls and Lord Myners admitting Labour's mistakes (while shifting blame to others), produces a barely resistible urge to seek justice via the ducking stool. Any feeling of vindication is swamped by anger and disgust.

In communities that have been destabilised by the arrival of large numbers of non-English-speaking people, many with alien cultures, a change of government will not improve their circumstances. The deleterious impact on over-stretched social services, housing and jobs cannot easily be reversed. Mr Balls's Damascene conversion merely adds insult to injury.

As for the nation's finances, only now, it seems, when the damage has been done, and the taxpayer condemned to long-term impoverishment, do we hear voices of dissent emerging from the ranks of Labour's placemen. One month after Mr Brown threatened to cling on to power as the senior partner in a soi-disant Progressive Alliance, Lord Myners is recanting.

This week, he told fellow peers: "There is nothing progressive about a government who consistently spend more than they can raise in taxation, and certainly nothing progressive that endows generations to come with the liabilities incurred by the current generation. There will need to be significant cuts in public expenditure, but there is considerable waste in public expenditure. I have seen that in my own experience as a minister."

Hallelujah, brother! A sinner has seen the light. As disavowals go, this was a doozy. What a shame, though, that the former City minister did not have the courage to spill the beans during the election campaign. For a so-called hard man, who carried out the "drive-by shooting" of Sir Fred Goodwin, Lord Myners was a disappointingly soft touch for his master in Number 10.

Having cloaked themselves in the theatrical robes of Keynesianism, Mr Brown's little helpers must endure the humiliation of being stripped naked by events. As any serious student of Keynes will tell you, the great man believed that governments could help smooth the peaks and troughs of cyclical capitalism. He did not advocate management by profligacy or the indulgence of budget deficits at the peak of a boom.

That Mr Brown chose to do this (his average budget deficit from 2003-2007 was £32 billion) began the stockpiling of massive debts. Made strikingly worse by the downturn, Britain's borrowings are £770 billion and on course to hit £1.4 trillion by 2014-15. At that point, our annual interest bill will be £70 billion, about twice what we currently commit to defence.

First, we deluded ourselves into believing that maximum expenditure was an acceptable norm. Then, as the madness took hold, the norm became the minimum. Finally, with alarm bells ringing and red lights flashing, came the Cabinet's bogus cover of "supporting the economy" through recession.

As Jeffrey Sachs, director of Columbia University's Earth Institute, explained in the Financial Times: "The relevant fact was that the UK [and others]... had over-borrowed for a decade, so a decline in consumption after 2007 was not an anomaly to be fought but an adjustment to be accepted." Such a change in mindset was always going to be resisted by a government that was hooked on the political attractiveness of spending increases, even though it had, in effect, run out of money. To square the circle and calm lenders, Alistair Darling was required to make ever more heroic assumptions about GDP growth. This was the fairy dust which, when sprinkled on the nation's accounts, would magic away our debt crisis.

The philosopher Roger Scruton in his latest book, The Uses of Pessimism, warns against "the danger of false hope" from "unscrupulous optimists" who dismiss constraints, while flogging gravity-defying solutions. Mr Darling and his Treasury team, Mr Balls, Yvette Cooper, and the hapless Mr Byrne fit that description with alarming precision.

Much as Labour's claim about the economic benefits of immigration was demolished by a House of Lords select committee, its growth forecasts are likely to be challenged by the independent Office for Budget Responsibility. If, as expected, the new OBR downgrades our growth prospects from Mr Darling's fantasy 3.5 per cent to the City's consensus of about 2 per cent, the outlook for the deficit becomes even worse.

This is why Fitch, the ratings agency, describes the UK's fiscal challenge as "formidable" and calls for deficit reduction at a more aggressive pace than set out in the Labour's last Budget. "The rise in public debt ratios since 2008 is faster than any other AAA-rated sovereign [nation] and the primary balance adjustment required to stabilise debt is amongst the highest of advanced countries."

Remember this when the Opposition squeals, as it surely will, on June 22, the day of George Osborne's emergency Budget. The Coalition did not create the extraordinary mess that must be tackled now if we are to avoid locking our children and theirs into a lifetime of paying off this burden. Existing taxes will go up and new ones will be introduced. But too few taxes are not the problem. Labour expected tax income of £541 billion this year, £54 billion more than in 2005, the year of its third election victory. The trouble is, expenditure in that time rocketed from £519 billion to £704 billion. Only through a robust shrinking of the state's outlay can sanity be restored.
As Professor Sachs concludes: "There are no short-term miracles, only the threat of more bubbles if we pursue economic illusions. To rebuild our economies, the watchword must be investment rather than stimulus."

I would love to see Jeff Randell interview, or interrogate, Gordon Brown on what he did as chancellor and as PM. What a bloodbath that would be.

Labour over the last 13 years have screwed this country up so badly that the Labour leadership candidates, and ex ministers are saying, ' It wasn't me.' and 'I tried to say something, but was over ruled.'


How can we ever trust what they say, if they're trying to wriggle out of the responsibility they have for putting this country in the state it is now in.

Another council wasting money.

Status Quo hits back at Brighton council over 'insulting' website

Status Quo have lashed out at Brighton council over a bizarre new recruitment website which declares that fans of the rock band "need not apply" for four executive jobs.

That is the headline to this article

An extract;

Brighton and Hove City Council spent about £10,000 on the website, which is designed to attract radical candidates for four new £125,000 strategic director posts.

The website's home page is emblazoned with the words "Status Quo fans need not apply" in glittery gold lettering and pink thunderbolts.

Status Quo, who reached the peak of their popularity in the 1970s, now plan to hang a banner reading: "Councillors for Brighton and Hove need not attend" when they perform at the Brighton Centre in December.

Who gave the ok to spend £10,000 on this, and why pick on Status Quo fans?

The taxpayers of Brighton, and the whole country, are the ones who pay for the stupid ideas like this. We should be given value for money for all the millions we pay to the councils of this country.

Every council in the country needs to save money, so why does Brighton council need four £125,000, directors?

I hope the people of Brighton make the councils lives hell over this.

What Planet are these people on?

Thanks to Corrugated Soundbite for this find.

I should warn you that some swearing is involved in this blog.

Good to see New Labour's internet army is still going strong:

No new comments coming through at the moment. Presumably because whichever lesbian one legged Somali outreach and diversity management coordinator was typing them up is now suffering from severe RSI and preparing a £750k lawsuit.

Pay homage to the cunt ;-)

UPDATE: It appears that comments even with only the slightest hint of negativity are not being published at all, and those that were previously submitted have now been switched to private, along with a number of gushy comments from BBC staff.

No criticism of the disposed Dear Leader is allowed (as we probably expected). Gotta love socialism.

I have only read a few comments so far, but how long were these people brainwashed.

This is Shocking News

Immigration soars 20% after Labour's 'crackdown'

I'm in total shock.

Labour lied to the public. This is shocking news.

Yeah right, did anyone believe them in the first place?

How many more lies and waste are going to come out?

I don't know how the new Government can bring this country back from the brink, when we see statistics and waste like this being found.

How many ways has 13 years of Labour rule screwed up this country.

Every time Labour comes out with something against the government, They should remind people of this type of thing.

There needs to be an audit of everything in government by a independent official, to show the public what mess this country is in.

A question on the EU bailouts.

I found this video on Fausty's Libertarian Blog, have a look and ask yourself;

Where's the money coming from?

It's hard to comprehend the amount of money involved. It does make you wonder how the UK, and the rest of the EU, will ever pay off the debt?

How long till this happens in Llandudno

I have just read this article at Big Brother Watch.

Another bird-feeding 'criminal' gets collared

Last year, Big Brother Watch covered the story of Vanessa Kelly - a young mum who had taken her toddler to the park and been issued with a £75 fine for throwing bread to the ducks. We fought a successful campaign in the media that led to Sandwell Council overturning the fine and admitting their error.

Today we have been dismayed to learn of another bird-feeding incident that has led to an elderly woman being slapped with an £80 on-the-spot fine
(from SWNS):

A woman was fined £80 for littering after wardens caught her throwing bread crumbs – to the birds. Heartless rubbish spies spotted the frail woman sprinkling bread over her garden railings onto the pavement for starlings.

Voluntary group St Peter’s Neighbourhood Monitoring started the campaign to catch litter louts last year.

Spies record residents who litter then post the footage onto You tube. Neighbours are then encouraged to name and shame those dropping litter.

Footage of people who litter is passed to the local authority who are then able to use it as evidence to issue fines.

There are any number of authoritarian crimes here - from Neighbourhood Monitoring groups dishing out justice; to spying on residents and illegal covert camera recording - but once again the real tragedy is the victim: a law-abiding elderly woman who has been fined most of her weekly pension for feeding the birds.

Big Brother Watch intends to help this woman if possible - if anyone has any information about this incident please do contact us.

By Dylan Sharpe

With the town and county council running short of money will they start fining people for feeding birds on the West Shore?
Not forgetting the increase in council tax that is coming next year. I wonder how much that will be?
We already have council (SS) officers who have the right to enter your home without a warrant or a police presence. 
How long before we have more council (SS) officers giving out fines so the council can get the money to pay for their wages and pensions essential services.

Purse Thief gets Attacked

A bit of Community Spirit.

I wonder if this guy will steal another purse after this?

Purse Thief Gets Attacked - Watch more Funny Videos

Has the Met Office built a computer model that works?

I am asking this because the met office have predicted the following;

Night-time temperatures could rise above 25C because of climate change

An extract;

The number of sweltering nights when the temperature in cities stays above 20C (68F) and the elderly become vulnerable to heat exhaustion will increase fivefold because of climate change, a Met Office study has found.

Opening the windows will make no difference because the outside temperature will be too warm for the heat in homes to escape. The “urban heat island effect”, in which buildings and roads absorb heat during the day and release it at night, could result in the temperature on the hottest nights remaining above 25C.

When will this happen then?

The Met Office study found that, by 2040, it could need to issue heatwave warnings for urban areas four times more frequently. The warning system was established after the 2003 heatwave to help people to protect those at risk, including the elderly, young children and those suffering with poor health caused by respiratory diseases.

So by 2040 the night time temperature will be at least 20C.

So they are predicting within 30 years what the temperature will be.

Does anyone remember this headline from March 2010;

Met Office drops seasonal forecast

An extract from the article;

Dave Britton, of the Met Office, admitted last night that it was just too difficult to give an accurate forecast for the seasons using the current science.
"Although we can identify general patterns of weather, the science does not exist to allow an exact forecast beyond five days, or to absolutely promise a certain type of weather.
"As a result, 'seasonal forecasts' cannot be as precise as our short-term forecast," he said.

The last line of the article reads;

The Met Office, based at Exeter in Devon, added that it would work towards developing the science of long range forecasting.

So has the Met Office built a new computer model that accurately predicts the weather in the future?
