Dining With The PM

James Murdoch is in a long line of dinner guests who have courted Prime Minister, David Cameron, to obtain political access for commercial gain. It was recently reported that 15 donors enjoyed secret dinners and lunches at Downing Street and Chequers parting with approximately £25million in cash. These donors would have had access to information and also the ability to influence policies that would ultimately effect you and I.

The term bribery comes to mind. But to what extent and what do we really expect…..

Jobless Britain

The sad news of unemployment in Britain reaching its highest for 16 years shows that women are being hit the hardest. Of the 48,000 increase, 32,000 were women losing their jobs.

Just Say No

So Cameron stood his ground and said “No”.

What does this mean? Nobody knows. There are some who believe this is the best thing since sliced bread, some who think he has failed Britain miserably and Nick Clegg who just doesn’t know which way to swing.

But in reality nobody knows what the impact of Cameron’s decision will be; not the economists; not the finance ministers; not the politicians and not the general public. They can only speculate as Cameron clearly says “We are not in this together,” to Europe.

Debt Crisis

Deal with your debt and help Britain economy in its road to recovery is the message from Prime Minister David Cameron today at the Tory party conference in Manchester. His speech has baffled me today. Speaking to the conference as if the nation are 5 year olds, he makes assumptions that those in debt can somehow rustle up the money to pay them off. Surely, if they could do that, then they wouldn’t be in debt?

London’s Burning

Friends from around the world have been contacting me to ask if I’m okay as images of London’s riotous weekend fire across their screens (fortunately I’m not near the action at all).  I found it very interesting that our political leaders did not express their concern about the safety of Londoners

What Is Happening To The NHS?

The overhauling of the NHS system is making me very nervous and confused as to what the coalition government is or is not going to do. We have one of the most revered systems of healthcare across the world and whilst it has many flaws, it is absolutely vital that the NHS is treated with care and diligence so that it can provide a better service.

Do I feel that this government can provide that? No is my answer.

Child’s Play

Brands such as Mattel, Ninetendo, Wrigleys and Coca Cola are using and paying children to be their brand ambassadors. Forgive me for being rather shocked at this outcome but I thought child labour had been banned in this country in the late 19th century. How on earth have these companies got away with this?

In response to the Bailey report, Letting Children be Children, David Cameron yesterday asked for the process of companies paying children to publicise and promote products in schools or on social networking sites to be stopped by banning “the employment of children as brand ambassadors and in peer-to-peer marketing.” Why don’t our employment laws already cover this?
