    Theresa May went on the 'comfy sofa' on 5live this morning, part of what is clearly an attempt to rehabilitate her reputation. She 'shed a tear' when the result became clear, apparently. She realised 'Jeremy' was in fact, a, 'good man' when she saw his response to the London terrorist attacks, etc etc. The interviewer was not exactly Jeremy Paxman, put it that way.

    I'm really hoping she clings on to power for as long as possible, at least until we get another election. She's completely incapable of sounding anything else but totally insincere. Just one of those people.
    Saw 10 seconds of it there when I got in and that was enough, how anyone won't be able to see right through it is beyond me, then again the niavety of some people astounds me

    It's part and parcel of the British make-up that people with posh accents are automatically deemed to be leadership material.

    Jesus, my mum was saying she quite liked Rees Mogg. Asked her if she knew what he stood for - she didn't know.

    Accents on men have a similar effect to boobs on women.

    Rees Mogg is the most dangerous type of utter b*****d because it isn't immediately clear that that is exactly what he is.

    He's a so-far-untainted version of Boris Johnson that has the potential to rain absolute misery on this country.

    There seems to be a cycle of complaining that public sector are under-paid then a wee while later they are either over-paid (for what they do) or enjoy generous benefits (pensions & sick pay).
    I'm not even sure what public sector is these days. I'm in the rail industry(infrastructure), it was public sector when I started but was then privatised, then pseudo public until brought back under the remit of the government a few years back,,, I still don't really consider myself public sector and few others do.
    Then we have health, is that public sector, it's virtually all trusts these days.

    But, to answer the question, if I was to do a similar job outside the railway I'd probably be looking at a 40% pay cut. My mother who worked for NHS Scotland (office based) until her recent retirement has been looking for jobs in her field (she has to as she's short of NI contributions/WASPI issues) and even she's saying a similar job in the private sector is paying well below what she was getting.

    Comparison to the private sector is meaningless though. How much a private company decides to pay their workers beyond the minimum wage is entirely within their own remit and agreed upon with the employee. The government on the other hand have a responsiblity for ensuring that every worker who is officially working as a public sector employee recieves a paygrade that is either in line with the national living wage, or in line with their skills and experience.

    Considering we have people in the public sector who are either putting their own lives on the line each day, or putting other peoples lives on their shoulders while going to foodbanks and other charities to make ends meet is utterly disgraceful. These shameful comments from the CoE only adds to this national scandal.

    I wouldn't say meaningless, the comment from the Chancellor of the Exchequer was "Public sector workers receive a 10% premium over private sector counterparts"

    I reckon more folk in the private sector put their own lives at risk, but not for any particular "right" reason. Deep sea fishing is still up there as one of the most dangerous careers. Folk who work at height without correct fall arrests(scaffolders/roofers). People who carry out roadside recovery on busy roads,,,,,few, if any, public sector workers are in any more danger than anybody else working a job with inherent risks, in fact, their risk is probably managed better as there shouldn't be the financial squeeze and drive for profit many private sector workers face.

    Regardless, this shouldn't become a race to the bottom. Everyone who works is entitled to fair pay and safe working practices,,,, even the military!

    People with posh accents feel they are entitled to being in power and unfortunately loads of voters go along with it. Even when they ruin people's lives voters still default to what they know. So many people are like sheep nowadays and follow what everyday else does. Frightening what nonsense people believe by politicians especially white van man in the pub.

    It's in all walks of life. I can live with nepotism and favouring people if they can do the job but so many people in all walks of life get promoted but have not got a Scrooby as to how to do the job. Immensely frustrating for mere minions with half a brain.

    The irony and hypocrisy is breathtaking. Unfortunately most people only bother about their circle of people. Thatchers worse legacy was to make millions of people selfish barstewards starting with the council house sales and not building new ones and then floating companies to bribe voters. Now most people look at things only for what they can get and not for the common good.

    Two Conservative councillors who were suspended by the party over offensive posts on Twitter have been reinstated after apologising.


    Mr Majury used his Mulder1981 account on Twitter to make derogatory remarks about Catholics, attack benefit claimants and say the SNP was too busy talking about gay marriage.


    so ruthie, all they had to say was 'sorry' and all's fine

    Standard stuff for the Tories.

    Racist, Homophobic, and sectarian comments on their twitter feed, but it's ok. Back into the fold says Ruth.

    That is disgraceful. Any council employee found to have done similar would be out the door, so why is it different for these two?

    And this shows that Ruth Davidson isn't as fabulous as some of the media would like you to believe.

    http://www.thenational.scot/news/154...rs_readmitted/


    RUTH Davidson was last night under growing pressure to explain why her party had readmitted two councillors suspended over sectarian and racist abuse.
    The Scottish Conservative leader refused to appear on a BBC radio programme to answer questions on the reinstatement of Alastair Majury and Robert Davies, suspended by the Tories in May.


    i'm really missing her bitter twisted screwed-up face during her interviews, the interviews she picks to do anyway

    Tory MP for Moray and part time football referee, Douglas Ross.

    Q: If you were PM for a day what would you do?

    That chap Ross can't be too bright. English votes for English laws would surely prevent him from voting on traveller matters at Westminster. He could only have done anything about it by staying at Holyrood.

    Putting to one side any questions about priorities/ morality of course.....
