Understanding third-party contracts is the key to knowing where the tax-payers money is going! Once you understand that these companies put in tenders and get the contract (witness G4s) and others such as “Capita” then they can use their agreed grant in which ever they like! This then allows them to divide up the money, with the great portion given to themselves, and utilising the balance usually 60/40 in favour of themselves, but can be as high as 70/30 in some cases! The benefit to any government as it was to the bankers is that they carry no blame and can pass it on to the third party contractor, as they did with the G4’s debacle on the Olympics. Thus they look squeaky clean and if the third party screws up they can get another to take over the contract, making them look like they care ,when in fact they do not give a dam. Also as contract pricing is done by their departments ,they can save money and hide where they put it!
I have been studying these contracts for many years and this is the latest way governments, companies and countries pass the buck!
The fact that keeping their promises does not come into the agenda, maximising profit as a private company is what this is all about!

Careless Talk Costs Us Our Welfare Budget

Over the past 3 years this government has taken larger and larger slices out of our welfare budget, all in the name of saving money. it has come to be known collectively as “Austerity Measures.” in the beginning we took it as read, that we needed to save money, as our borrowing had spiraled out of control, due to successive governments overspend! The real truth is that we have given this government the right, by our agreement of wanting more police-protection, security for terrorist acts and stop those so-called lazy scroungers, who earn more than me, to apply such costing cutting tactics! Each time we say that we want to stop this type of senseless violence or ban someone from our country, for no more than having an opinion, that differs from our own, we instigate government control of our lives!
The sheer fact that when we do anything wrong, or some member of our family gets killed serving this country, we want someone to blame! This becomes testament to the type of world that this is becoming! We want to put great back into Britain we say, but at what cost to ourselves and our children! I read so often about how it is acceptable to use business to lie cheat and steal, and justify it by saying ” other people like the bankers took more than me” is this the world we teach our children to respect!

So on this day l urge people to think before they speak, as it was said so many years ago ” Careless Talk Costs Lives” and this time it will not just be those that protect our country that will suffer ,but every man woman and child.

Take Care.

” Legality Changes For The Poor “

As l said yesterday the noose is tightening around peoples neck`s under the apprehension we will all be better off in the end. To say the truth is hidden is an understatement to say the least. The fact that all that has been held dear and upholds our way of life, is being swept away in pursuit of welfare saving’s how far from the truth is it, watch as it unravels?

The government has announced major changes to the system of civil legal aid in England and Wales.

Speaking in the Commons, Justice Secretary Kenneth Clarke said civil legal aid would only be routinely available in cases where life or liberty is at stake.

Funding for a wide range of disputes, including some divorce cases and clinical negligence would be axed.

The proposals are intended to cut the legal aid bill by £350m a year by 2015.

At present, anyone with assets worth less than £8,000 qualifies for legal aid – with those worth up to £3,000 paying nothing and others expected to make a contribution.

Under the new system, anyone with assets worth more than £1,000 will have to pay at least £100 towards their legal costs.
