Millibands Millions

#1
I was a bit surprised to hear David Milliband using the word "credible" on the radio today....On the CA web-site I was disturbed to see this situation is still going on:-

Miliband's Millions

• The Rural Payments Agency has about £1,500 million of English farmers' money available to pay to over 115,000 English farmers by June 2007. This is their 2006 Single Farm Payment.

• Last year England's farmers were left without their money at the time they had been promised. DEFRA and the RPA were warned in advance but did little to help.

• Failure to pay the 2005 SFP means that our Government will be fined by the EU.
If he doesn't stop revving up for a leadership challenge and address the width and depth of his DEFRA portfolio then I predict even greater environmental damage than that predicted by the Sterne report.

Now the thing is, if we could all write to our MPs as effectively as we did on the military wards in hospitals on this issue, then perhaps Mr Milliband would do something. They are a shaky mob in Whitehall at the present and will respond if we get gingering.

Don't let getting the wrong blokew get in the way of a good bayoneting.

TCMilliband is now in the position to do something. So what is his excuse? Stop sticking up for these cnuts just because you all play snooker at the Backwell Socialist Working Men's club FFS...if they were Buddhist Rational Liberal party ministers they would still be cnuts!

What can he do at the moment. The fine by the EU will be imposed because of the actions of the last minister - who SHOULD be strung up by his ballocks.

Is this years money late in being handed out???

And Cuddles, this Tory spray and pray tactic that some posters are using is almost as boring as being accused of being Labour

Oh and when does this stuff hit the news. Oh just when the doom and gloom merchants who say we shall all be washed into the sea if we dont pay wads to PARK our cars in the street. I PARK my 2l 4x4 in my street 6 out of 7 days per week but the cnuts want to charge me for not burning fuel in it and let some cnut drive his 1.3l week in and week out, cheaper. Its only got 26k over 9 years!

Have You got the right thread - this is about single payments to farmers not 4x4s

There's a good article about this in the latest edition of Private Eye, but I'm afraid I can't find a url.
In essence, it does indeed blame Beckett for the cock up, and points out that although last year's payments are finally starting to appear, the rest of Europe is already receiving this year's.

The inference of this release is that all monies have been paid and that interest payments are being made

This is a start. When it arrives, perhaps we can then look at Brown or Miliband refunding the interest paid out to banks on overdrafts caused by the double whammy of non-payment coupled with the tax bill that was levied anyway on the sum that should have been paid.

The Duke is right. While I obviously agree with Sven that everything the labour government do is smashing and great and super and they always have their thumb on the pulse...they handled this badly at the outset, handled it badly throughout and despite a really terrific press release, they are still handling it and apparently intent on continuing to, badly.

By the way, as far as "press releases" go, they obviously are always truthful...remember those classics "Hitler is lovely" (NSDAP c.1939) "Nixon tapes not a serious breach of presidential behaviour" (1969) and "Di murdered by Royal Family" (Harrods Press Office)
