GOVERNMENT SUPPRESSING LORDS EU DEBATE: Already 98 speakers down for 2nd Reading debate on 30 Jan, so will be 150+ by then. Yet Govt refusing to allow more than 2 days’ debate. There will be a big row in Lords about this - I have tabled motion for 4 days. #freespeech

This is interesting.

I've wondered before about how the Lords will deal with Brexit and whether they will feel the need to follow the Salisbury Convention.

Osbornian setting of 20% was always a hard task,this like the previous ones was continuing attempt to put that on track,currently about 5%.As ever,"stinking thinking"/reversal of the truth of dubious entitlement when the most underclaimed.

A question:

Do you feel you have been consulted (as the public, the electorate) on the huge restructuring about to happen to your NHS?

(Called ACO’s / “Accountable Care Organisations)

Osborne had been low-profile since blaming servants got him cuffed upside the head, metaphorically speaking.

"Should the public subsidise immensely wealthy referendum donors?"
-Jolyon Maughum
Quote:
But here’s the key thing. Backdating an exemption does nothing to encourage any type of behaviour. It serves no public interest. The behaviour to which the backdated tax exemption applies has already taken place. The only effect—the only effect—of backdating an exemption is to pass money from the state to an individual. The state gets precisely nothing in return.

Sir Robert Devereux, outgoing Permanent Secretary, Department for Work and Pensions, UK: Exclusive Interview


#D.Gaffney

Biggest policy disaster over period covered here was the virtual collapse of the ESA assessment system due to political decision to plough ahead with reassessing all IB claimants. Not mentioned here.

That was a purely political decision, against advice from the government's independent reviewer of the WCA. But it is a big part of the record & shouldn't be brushed under the carpet."

And on that subject...

Senior Conservative MP urges Jeremy Hunt to put the brakes on accountable care organisations

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/jeremy-hunt-sarah-wollaston-nhs-privatisation-health-social-care-accountable-care-organisations-a8168571.html

Quote:
A senior Conservative MP has called on Jeremy Hunt to put the brakes on plans which campaigners have previously claimed could open the NHS to privatisation.

Sarah Wollaston, the chair of the Commons Health Committee, has written to the Health and Social Care Secretary urging him to delay a new contract for Accountable Care Organisations (ACOs) - due to be implemented later this year.

She claims there is a “great deal of concern” over the plans which she considers “have not been well aired publicly up until now”.
