Out Of Pocket Labour?

If true KT will enjoy a drink tonight :)

Ed Agrees With Dave

 So Ed agrees with Dave, I think its safe to say that the NHS is not safe in any Politicians hands!

Labour Back Thatcher

No, I am not joking, according to this piece Labour want to statue of Lady Thatcher

"A proposal is to be put before South Kesteven District Council that Grantham build a statue to Margaret Thatcher.
But those proposing the idea are not the majority Conservative group but Labour councillors.
Labour district councillor Charmaine Morgan says the left is proposing the statue as a way of boosting tourism revenues for Grantham.
Coun Morgan is calling on Conservatives to back the move at tomorrow’s full council meeting in St Peter’s Hill, Grantham.
In her Journal column Coun Morgan writes: “To offer hope to local people the Labour Group will propose a range of initiatives to encourage tourists into Grantham. This includes a new craft centre located in the heart of town.
We also propose an exhibit and statue/bust of Lady Thatcher.
“Contrary to some rumours, despite our personal strength of feeling about her, we feel the controversy and outside interest around Lady Thatcher provides an opportunity to attract international tourists to our town, who spent £11bn in our region last year."

Maybe some in Labour did take on board Ed`s *One Nation* speech.....

Rupert Calls It, Or Does He?

KT can only think that the *legal reasons* he states would be the ones that question his sanity ;)

Of Course It Was Only Going To Go Downhill After That Start

I always go by the rule that if someone chucks insults into a debate it means you have won, But it is something different when you start a TV debate with an insult, there is only one way the interview can go from there :

Thats Why You Missed Andys Response

People on my twitter time line have been asking for Andy Burnhams response to the Francis report, They cite a a tweet from Mr Burnham :

Well KT can put there minds at ease, KT can confirm that Mr Burnham kept his word, he did set out a response :

In which Mr Burnham says :

                      " It is why I have also said that I will work through the bodies we inherit and will not engage in another top-down reorganisation."

KT takes that to mean he wont undo the top down reorganization that he claims the coalition brought in then.

(KT did note that his response was in the tax avoiding Guardian )

An Unpaid Intern for Gov Adviser On Welfare

That would be shocking right? Well it is not :

How is that rewarding those who choose to do the right thing?

Update : I wonder what the Lib Dems think about this, as the unpiad internship is for a Government ( of which they are part of) advser , A while ago i wrote this about Lib Dems using unpaid interns :

"Lets just remember what scheme Nick Clegg  promoted

"The national internship scheme will ask firms to pay young people doing work experience and warn they could otherwise risk a legal challenge under the national minimum wage legislation. The deputy prime minister will say that the aim is to make career progression less dependent on "who your father's friends are".

Oh, i did forget for a minute they are two faced politicians.......

A lot has been said about the debt and deficit in recent weeks, While the PM and Coalition Comrades spouting the line that they were dealing with the debt and deficit the truth was a different matter, I blogged a while ago about how the OBR predicted that debt was going to rise :

However, what was refreshing was that last night on Newsnight Exchequer Secretary to the Treasury David Gauke admitted this :

In fact according to the Guardian in 2012 the debt would be 67.3
 Those figures seems quite consistent to me, unlike Labours position that is....

Galloway : Israel Is A Cancer

After refusing to debate with an Israeli last week George Galloway has popped up again to dispatch his latest piece of advice :

He compares Isreal to Apartherd South Africa :

." Apartheid Israel is a cancer at the heart of the middle-east"

His Facebook page also says this :

"Fighter for justice, peace & equality for all"

Equality for all unless you are Israeli, which brings us back to when he walked out of a debate last week, in the Huff Post the organizer of the debate says this about the incident :

"I was left humiliated in front of a room full of people who had waited an hour and a half for your arrival, only to be subsequently accused of being deceptive and misleading."

Respect party? Mr Galloway would not know respect if it came and slapped him in the face!

Elected Or Unelected, That Is The Question

When some of us say *they are all the same* we sometimes get mocked, each day on twitter i see UKIP supporters saying *vote for us were a different* , having shown before that UKIP leader Nigel Farage tells the odd porky it will not come as a shock to some that he has been caught out again telling a lie :
Now apart from not getting the the name of  "Young Independence" wrong ( Its @YIofficial ) he then goes on to claim that Olly was not elected, Quite a claim i hear you say, your right, so I went of to have a look, In this piece in the Indy Olly himself says

                 "I was elected chairman of Young Independence by 62% of the vote and the largest absolute majority in our organisations history"

62% of the vote? That cant be true as Nigel said Olly was not elected?

So either the Leader of UKIP is Lying or Olly is lying, who is your money on?

 The Burka banning, protectionist and anti free market party are not libertarian in any sense, If anything they are to the left of Labour, Yet UKIPs line is *Blame the immigrants* ( here ) , they claim to be different from the others but are just as full of lies and spin as Labour/Tory/Lib Dem.

Labours NHS

Do you remember Labour scaremongering this time last year? (be fair, it is hard to keep up with the bandwagons they keep jumping on), well last year Ed Miliband claimed this :

They say hindsight is a wonderful thing ( Jesus, I wish I could see the future), But for the Labour party its not that simple, they claim that it is "their NHS", Its not, it belongs to the taxpayer. anyway Ed Miliband wanted to "Save the NHS", a noble cause the left will cry!

Some say "Karma" is a twat, it is, its a twat that will come back and bite you like a erm twat ( Hence why its called Karma), It catches up with us all. The other week a report into Mids Staffs was published and it was revealed that 1,200 people had died needlessly :

But that is not all, the then health secretary refused calls for public inquiry 81 times :
Andy Burnham dismissed calls for a public inquiry in 2009 for this reason :

                    “The demands were for a full public inquiry but my thoughts were that would distract the management.”

But Labour dont get this, step forward Tony McNulty, the former MP who was accused of fiddling expenses and ending up apologizing to the House for it:

But then he tweeted this :

Despite 1200 humans needlessly dying on his parties watch, while he was in the Commons he spouts party political propaganda, but thats not all from the "One nation" party , In the Independent a few days ago it said this :

Of course you have to add PFI in  as well (2011)

                    "  Currently the combined debt for some 800 PFI projects, including 103 PFI hospitals in England, stands at about £300 billion, according to makers of the programme."

 This is the NHS Ed Miliband and Labour want to save!

I`m Confused

KT came across something while browsing the net, A while ago Andy Burnham made this pledge

Fair enough, Labour claim that that bill was a "top down reorganization" (here )

So if you repeal the bill that will mean another "top down reorganization" right? , well in a piece a week ago Andy Burnham said this :

" It is why I have also said that I will work through the bodies we inherit and will not engage in another top-down reorganisation. "

Yet he once said :

 "Labour will inherit a very different NHS – lots of damage will have already been done. And let me make it clear – if the bill in parliament goes through, we will repeal it"

If lots of damage is done then surely you have to repeal the bill meaning another top down reorganization that you have now promised not to do?

I`m confused????? 

Labour Used To Be Against Public Inquires

So after getting the report on Mid Staffs I thought i would bring you this quote from And Burnham from 2009 :

 “The demands were for a full public inquiry but my thoughts were that would distract the management.”

Guest Post: Trident?

During the cold war there was a genuine threat to the UK and Western Europe from Soviet military expansionism. The Soviet Union had the military capabilities to destroy the UK's military presence in Germany and then push westward and destroy the UK's RAF air defences and the Royal Navy. This would then give them the option to force a surrender through a blockade or to launch and all out invasion.

Submarine launched nuclear weapons were the ultimate deterrent against this threat. They were almost impossible to destroy preemitvely as they hid in the vastness of the sea and inter-continental missiles could be launched in retaliation to any invasion or nuclear attack. The Soviets also had submarine launched nuclear missiles and the only hope of defending against them was to find, track and attack them with Royal Navy 'attack' submarines; Anti-submarine warfare ships and anti-submarine patrol aircraft equipped with detection sensors and torpedoes.

Today Russia has four submarines equipped with inter-continental nuclear missiles. These submarines were launched in the 80s and are on their last legs. As they are old, the noise signature they give off is significant. The Royal Navy's newest submarine, the Astute class (costing £1B each), can easily detect and track them every time they are at sea and would sink them before they could launch their missiles at UK population centres.

Although the Russians are trying to re-purpose some old submarines as their new generation of nuclear missile launch platforms, this is yet to materialise and may not. The Russian Navy has struggled to commission new submarines due to limited budgets and an erosion of their defence industry. It is unlikely that they will succeed with this.

If the UK withdrew its submarine launched nuclear deterrent capability, there is a strong possibility that Russia could be persuaded do the same. Furthermore, China has one old submarine with Nuclear missiles which don't have the range to reach the UK. Indian missiles are out of range of the UK, likewise Israel and Pakistan only has free fall bombs.

If the UK replaces Trident, at a cost of £40B, then this will motivate Russia, China and India to develop nuclear bombs. Likewise, there is a strong argument that if the UK didn't replace Trident then the Submarine launched nuclear deterrents of Russia and China would wither on the vine. And it is likely that France would also follow our lead in due course; even the US. The UK government could develop this as a diplomatic strategic objective and open up negotiations.

One argument for replacing Trident would be to assure the UK's place on the UN security council.  Removal for not having nuclear weapons is far from certain and India, with a nuclear capability is not a member. Either way, at £40B that makes it a very expensive club to join and there is more to being a super-power or having super-influence than having nuclear weapons.

The world has certainly changed since the cold war ended. We are now enjoying a peace that will be long and enduring. Ideological governments have melted away and democracy, trade and inter-governmental organisations are the new order. Russia's democracy is developing and their biggest foreign policy interest is their essential oil and gas exports. China is economically, and structurally, co-dependent on the West as is India and Pakistan. Any future conflict between these powers are likely to be limited and in the soft form of cyber-attacks, 3rd world influence, economic trade and industrial espionage. 

The UK is not under threat of being attacked by nuclear weapons from any state on earth. Furthermore, the UK could not launch trident without the involvement of the US and if it did, the US would most likely deliver their own strike.

The UK is also not under threat of being invaded. No nation has the capabilities to invade the UK. France and Germany don't have the hardware or resources. We are beyond the reach of the Russian Army, Navy and Air force. Even if they were closer, they couldn't sustain a military campaign against the UK or launch an invasion. Even the USA would struggle militarily to invade the UK. And China and India are not capable of any operations outside their own region.

So replacing Trident seems a big waste of £40B and would offer the UK little or no military, diplomatic, political, security or moral advantage. There's not threat of a nuclear strike and we are not at risk of a conventional attack on UK soil.

Of course the Treasury would claw-back from some cash from cancelling the Trident replacement. However the UK government would have to compensate with increased commitments to conventional equipment.

UK armed forces would certainly benefit from some of the £40Billion saved being spent on other hardware to meet the growing global diplomatic and defence needs. 

  • The RAF 's expensive Euro fighter is defending UK airspace despite no actual threat to our airspace. Yet is has insufficient strategic assets to lift and deploy an expeditionary land force and deliver and support long range air-strikes.

  • The Royal Navy has the best submarines and air-defence ships in the world. The two new aircraft carriers will provide enhanced diplomatic leverage to future governments. But the Navy's assets are hugely expensive and so limited in numbers.  The Royal Navy doesn't have enough ships to provide the adequate response to diplomatic, security and humanitarian objectives. It needs a mix of more world-class vessels as well as affordable utilitarian ships. The Royal Fleet Auxiliary should have the standing capability for delivering humanitarian relief in the event of war or natural disaster.

  • The Army, while reducing to the historic expeditionary level of  80,000, will also have equipment needs in the form of more versatile fighting vehicles, improved communications equipment, intelligence gathering assets, helicopters and battlefield strike capabilities such as artillery and drones. There will also be a need to invest in the infrastructure and equipment to continuously train reservists and, possibly, local armies.

Increased investment in conventional equipment to enhance the capabilities of the armed forces would offer greater influence on the world stage. It would enhance our projection of hard and soft power.  It would boost the manufacturing base and defence exports. It would also allow the UK to take a moral lead in nuclear disarmament, which would enhance our prestige, reputation and influence in the world.

So let's start to discuss and debate the option of no Trident replacement. Let's start now with limited and restricted patrols. Consider silo launched land capabilities as a replacement to sea-launched if we can't stomach the concept of Pakistan, North Korean and possible Iran being in a nuclear club without the UK. But one thing is for sure, the UK does not need to spend £40B on a state-of-the-art submarine launched nuclear deterrent to preserve the peace in the next 50 years.
