I read this on twitter earlier today and thought it is amazing the Government is still in power. Read the article and oit hi-lites the knee jerk reaction. Lets stop sending money. Oxfam does wonderful work around the world. If the Tories had funding removed because of bad apples the Government would be in chaos.Read the very good article by fleetstreetfox here There's no excuse for Oxfam's Haiti shame - and there's no reason to cut its funding either

My thoughts on the Carrilion debacle are that the Conservatives are happy enough to let their mates earn a fortune out of private finance initiative's and try and award contracts to their "mates" but they hide under the nearest rock when it all goes tits up. The fact that thousands of workers and suppliers are tonight worrying what is going to happen could have been avoided. But the nasty Party didn't want to know. They want their other mates to pick up the pieces and earn a fortune in the process. The contracts still need to be finished. The outstanding debts will end up with pennies in the pound and whom ever gets to finish off the works contacts etc will not have any up front costs just walk in and complete the draw the profits. The banks will have first draw on the money raised and will earn money out of the collapse . The little man the supplier owed peanuts will get peanuts. But to him it's could mean the difference between staying afloat or sinking.I saw on tonight's news a firm owed thirty seven thousand pounds, he was going to maybe have to loose two members of staff. Yet the directors who had promised the Tories they would be alright. They 're all okay. The ministers who awarded these contracts they will be okay. It's the little fella every time. I was going to write a lot more about the failings of private versus public contracts and how this fiasco stem back to the heart of Tory ideology but I can't be bothered. Night folks.
