Tsk.

Everyone trying to jump on the Jeremy Corbyn bandwagon.



Only another 32 years of no car, public transport and bicycling to work to catch up, Dave. Oh. And the smallest total of parliamentary expense claims to beat. Laughing

Odds of Dying by Terrorist Attack: 20,000,000 to 1

When did you ever hear any leader say "Let's not be Paranoid people. The Odds of Dying by Terrorist are extremely low." You won't hear that because it just doesn't fit the narrative.

In other words....He is entirely safe with eeezeejet Laughing

My first thought is that it's a wind-up with a lookalike.

Would anyone be allowed near enough to take photos?

How nice and cosy! Cameron, Osborne and Murdoch back together at mogul's Christmas knees-up

Cameron, Osborne and Murdoch back together at mogul's Christmas knees-up

Party at magnate’s London flat saw half the Tory cabinet and Rebekah Brooks in attendance and marks Murdoch’s return to the centre of political power

David Cameron was joined by George Osborne at Rupert Murdoch’s Christmas house party on Monday night, an event where half the Conservative cabinet went to toast the media magnate.
John Whittingdale, the culture secretary, whose job it is to regulate the media industry, and Priti Patel, the employment minister who attends cabinet meetings, were among the other ministers present at a gathering with rightwing columnists and Jerry Hall, the former model and new partner of the 84-year-old media patriarch.
Rebekah Brooks was the most senior News Corp UK executive in attendance, alongside the group’s national newspaper editors John Witherow, Tony Gallagher and Martin Ivens in what is understood to be her first chance to raise a glass with the prime minister since being reappointed as chief executive in September.



Rupert Murdoch: a seven-point plan for rehabilitation in British life
How the News Corp mogul restored public links with David Cameron after the turbulence of the phone-hacking scandal and Leveson inquiry

           


Although Murdoch has retained personal links to Osborne and other members of the cabinet, the media mogul is understood to have been particularly hostile to Cameron because of the prime minister’s decision to launch the Leveson inquiry into the media in the wake of the phone-hacking scandal.

Two former journalists who have proved Murdoch’s most vociferous supporters in government – Boris Johnson and Michael Gove – were both understood to be out of London: “Otherwise they wouldn’t have turned down the invitation of the year,” sniffed one News Corp insider of the boss’s bash.


Unassuming from the outside, despite its location between the Ritz hotel and St James’s Palace in London, Murdoch’s flat has a large balcony overlooking Green Park. It isn’t known if the prime minister, who has admitted to his struggle to give up smoking in the past, was among those going outside for a sneaky drag.

By 9pm, a party which started three hours earlier had started to wind down and several ministers, including Cameron and Osborne, headed to the Conservative Christmas party being held at the Sexy Fish restaurant in Mayfair.

Murdoch’s early-evening gathering is the first to be attended by such political big beasts since the mogul’s huge Kensington Palace party in June 2011. Then Labour leader Ed Miliband and many of his shadow team joined Cameron in full public view before the most devastating of revelations about phone hacking emerged.

This year’s party, held at night and at home, may have been smaller but it marks Murdoch’s return to the centre of power more than almost anything else, the culmination of the process that has seen him regain his position at the top of British life.

David Cameron news

More than 30,000 people support call to ban David Cameron from returning to UK from holiday

By Romil Patel March 29, 2016 19:16 BST


Turbulence in the Tory ranks may be fast dropping down the list of David Cameron's concerns, as a petition to ban him from re-entering the UK has attracted more than 30,000 signatures. The prime minister is currently in Lanzarote for the Easter break and has faced criticism for jetting off to the Canary Islands while urging Brits to holiday in the north of England.


The online petition was launched by Kerry-anne Mendoza, an independent journalist and former NHS consultant from Farnborough. It reads: "David Cameron presents a clear and present danger to the short, medium and long term interests of the country. As such, the UK should institute a temporary ban on his return to Britain at the conclusion of his holiday in Lanzarote."





Addressing the signatories, Mendoza said: "Thank you for getting involved and making this something that has caught the attention of so many. David Cameron does present a clear and present danger to Britain, and that's what you are all helping to highlight." She added: "So keep up the pressure. Promote the petition."



The campaign gathered momentum after Mendoza wrote a satirical article for her website, which said: "The Prime Minister is under pressure after a fortnight which has seen a revolt by Conservative MPs over proposed cuts to disability support, and the shock resignation of Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith. But further anger came when the PM dropped a bombshell privatisation announcement before catching a plane to Lanzarote for the Easter holidays."



The petition is addressed to Home Secretary Theresa May, a key political ally of Cameron. May would have the final say in the matter, meaning that the chances of preventing Cameron from coming back to the UK are highly unlikely at best.


Cameron has had a string of political headaches to deal with of late, with deep divides in the Conservative party over the EU referendum and a controversial Budget which sparked the resignation of Iain Duncan Smith as the work and pensions secretary.

Cameron's woes are set to be compounded by further strike action from junior doctors on 26 and 27 April. The fierce dispute has prompted The Academy of Medical Royal Colleges to warn that "this is a time of unprecedented crisis for the NHS."

David Cameron reveals next job after quitting politics

David Cameron’s first role since quitting politics will see him help boost a skills programme for teenagers that he set up as prime minister.
Mr Cameron will oversee the expansion of the National Citizen Service (NCS) into a scheme available to all teenagers, as chairman of NCS Patrons.
The group will bring together a senior cross-party and cross-sector group of patrons and ambassadors to help the service become a "permanent national institution

Sounds like a cushy job imo, and one that is about to cost the taxpayers a great deal of money.
What is a "social action project" anyway?   It all seems to be rather vague.

What I think would be more useful and character building is to bring back the Technical Colleges frankly.
Provide training and job experience to 15-17 year olds who do not wish to follow a more academic career.
The lack of proper skills training in this country is deplorable - but then that is jmo.


The former prime minister’s announcement comes as the Government introduces a National Citizen Service Bill to create a Royal Charter to put the NCS on a permanent legal footing.

The NCS is open to 15 to 17-year-olds and sees groups of teenagers enjoy team outdoor activity trips before being mentored in the community, and ultimately deliver their own social action project.

"With cross-party support, this will create a Royal Charter to secure the NCS Trust as a permanent national institution that can ultimately offer a place to every 16- and 17-year-old.

"That should be our goal - not necessarily a compulsory programme, but one that is universally available and becomes a normal part of growing up for every teenager.

"But making NCS a rite of passage requires more than political leadership

Agree 100% B'bell re tech colleges. Skills like plumbing, carpentry, tiling and so on.

Team outdoor activity? Sounds like paintballing!

Just what I`ve been thinking for ages now. Why does academia have more value than artisanship and technical know-how and music? I don`t even mind the idea of grammar schools for the more academic child but why don`t they have more Technical Colleges and Schools and give them as much prestige as a Grammar School. At present there is a mistaken belief that a grammar school is better. I`d rather my children were clever with their hands than with academic stuff.
