Another Government "crisis" manufactured

Good thinking. Don't replace them and see how long it is until they are missed.
May indicate to them their own uselessness((?)
A bit like the NI Assembly, that hasn’t been ‘Governing’ for the best part of a year?
As well as superfluous, job creating quangoes, I reckon we could rid ourselves (as taxpayers) of a number of layers of local Government and we wouldn’t notice a difference to our lives.
Self serving twats that they are!

Quite agree.
Didn't we have a Prime Minister who promised a bonfire of the Quangoes?

Again unfortunately she laboured the point and it’s being used against her.

Outside of the filter bubble/echo chamber, nobody actually cares nor is on the least surprised that a bunch of Left leaning types who have happily taken money to sit on a pointless Quango for 10 years are now complaining that their efforts have achieved anything apart from fine words.

They were never going to and never will

BBC News has just said that Downing Street are saying that Millburn had been told he was not going to be reappointed as Chairman. Puts a different light onto his personal 'sacrifice' and the reason for resigning.

Sour grapes anyone?

Maybe she should have had the common sense not to trumpet it then.

Why? She wasn't in charge when the quango was created, and since she hasn't been in charge for even one full term the tantrum from the trough-snouter called Milband is actually irrelevant as all it shows is his overinflated sense of self importance

I've just ordered a set of winter tyres, on a new set of alloy rims. It was very nearly the same price for a complete wheel on 16" rims as it would have been to get tyres to fit the 18" rims I already have. There's also lots of miles left in the other tyres. •|||||||• :santa:
You sir have got your priorities correct, worrying or even thinking about the orcs and hobbits that inhabit planet Westminster achieves nothing. like all governments trying to do the best for its citizens ( Tongue in cheek) they will stumble from one clusterfuck to the next, the outcome is predictable, we're screwed, unless of course you are the landed gentry, royalty, or severely minted. everyone else gets fucked over, nothing changes only the uniform.

Fairness. Social mobility

What a lovely, soft, fluffy sounding and wholly non definable concepts.

And now people start shitting on that there has been no progress towards increasing said soft, fluffy sounding and wholly non definable concepts.

What a surprise.
which party was it shut down the grammar schools? I thought historically they were in the vanguard of social mobility - the days when people moved upwards by intelligence and hard work
