  • Local Issues, the Cabinet Reshuffle, and ‘Blobs’

    The recent cabinet manoeuvres have produced some changes surprising to UKIP observers, not the least of which is the displacement of Michael Gove as education secretary. He had been seen to be successful in taking on the ‘blob’, that amorphous mass of self-appointed educationalists, teaching trade unions, and anti-education ideologues, which has so blighted the educational opportunities of whole generations. […]

Economy bigger than in 2008, but so is Population

From Gary Conway on UKIPDaily, 28th July 2014. There has been much head scratching as commentators try to explain why, when overall GDP is growing nicely, people are not feeling the benefit in their pay packets. Well, it’s not rocket science. GDP is back to the pre-recession level of 2008, but the UK’s population has risen by 5% since then. […]

Economy bigger than in 2008, but so is Debt

From Gary Conway on UKIPDaily, July 29th 2014.           If you need a good belly laugh, Nick Clegg rarely disappoints. “There would be no recovery without @LibDems” is presumably a reference to Labour’s polling levels. The bit about the economy is comedy gold. Don’t get too far ahead of yourself Nick. As explained yesterday, although GDP […]

Cabinet Reshuffle – Best Men Go?

The cabinet reshuffle put in place by Cameron, and presumably aided and abetted by Lynton Crosby his advisor, has thrown up some unexpected moves and effective sackings. Unexpected that is, if you were of the opinion that true Conservatives should be standing up to ideologues in the education sector who are perpetually opposed to the notion that schools should be […]
