The "John Lewis List"

If you were to try to claim anything you would have to take out a loan from the Social, if for some unfortunate reason you became unemployed. They would not give us a thing, but may give you a loan which you would have to payback at an agreed weekly amount.So enjoy the read & when it next comes time to vote remember what your MPs are claiming, so vote BNP as they will not be claiming for second houses or the money to furnish them.

According to yesterday’s Guardian:

This article was first published on on Thursday March 13 2008. It was last updated at 17:46 on March 13 2008.

MPs are allowed to claim up to £10,000 for a new kitchen, more than £6,000 for a bathroom and £750 for a television on their parliamentary allowances, it was disclosed today.

They can also claim reimbursement from the taxpayer for stereos worth up to £750, £300 air-conditioning units and £2,000 for a furniture suite for their second homes.

The figures came as the Commons released the so-called "John Lewis list" that finance officials use to approve or reject MPs' expenses claims.

It is a list of precedents for spending on household items under the parliamentary second-homes allowance, based on prices at the John Lewis department store.

The document, released to the Press Association news agency under the Freedom of Information Act, was not even known to most MPs until recently.

Andrew Walker, the Commons' director general of resources, has previously declined to release the document for fear that MPs would take advantage if they knew how much they could claim for certain items.

"My concern would be that if we say what the maximum price we will allow for such an item is, it will become the going rate," he told a recent Information Tribunal hearing.

Under the Freedom of Information Act, passed by MPs in 2000, the Commons had until Monday to respond to the Press Association's request for sight of the document.

But, while acknowledging on Monday that it would release the information, it did not do so until this afternoon, as most MPs are returning to their constituencies for the weekend.

The figures were released a day after the members estimate committee announced that MPs would in the future have to provide receipts for all expenses claims above £25 from April 1.

Previously MPs were able to claim up to £250 without receipts.

The committee also said that the level of petty cash available for office expenses would be reduced from £250 to £50.

Yet again Allerdale Council delay on RNAD purchase until end of March.

Broughton Parish Council will not even discuss it.

From the Times & Star

Wall of silence over dump Friday, 25 January 2008

A WALL of silence this week surrounded the stalled Derwent Forest project as it was revealed that talks have taken place over possible opencast coal mining on part of the site.

International mining and construction group Keir has bought the coal rights to the 1,200-acre Derwent Forest site near Broughton Moor.

Kier, based in Sandy, Bedfordshire, is understood to have started talks with the potential new council owners of the Ministry of Defence site, formerly a Royal Naval Armaments Depot and still known locally as ‘The Dump’.

The purchase of mining rights does not mean that the go ahead for coal mining has been given. Planning consent and owner consent would still be required.

A four-year extraction plan for the northern section of the land, close to Broughton Moor village, is on the agenda.

1 It may include a clearance and de-contamination programme for the whole site, on which 110 World War II buildings still stand.

It should/will include ,as asbestos is present in & on buildings, this can be backed up with evidence from Allerdales own web site.

Kier declined to comment. A spokesman said: “We feel it would be inappropriate to speculate further how the longer term aspirations for the site may best be achieved.”

But John Ardron, Labour councillor for Broughton St Bridget’s, said: “I can confirm for certain that Kier Group have opened talks.

2 “But I for one would not contemplate any coal extraction scheme unless there was a ‘planning gain’ for the community, like the £18 million Tesco has promised for sports facilities in Workington , and unless the local community said ‘yes’.

What like no one objected to Tesco? I was at the meeting to discuss this in the Theatre can only say that no matter what was said it was already decided.

“The real problem now is that the council administration is keeping us all in the dark.”
It is believed that Kier’s proposals could mean that all the coal, estimated at probably three million tonnes, could be removed by a dust-secure covered conveyor belt that would extend to a coastal railhead.

At the end of any contract, the land would be restored to ‘greenfield’ status.
Communities on the edge of The Dump have in the past firmly rejected coal extraction, but Broughton parish council chairman Keith Sproat said it should be considered again especially if it meant 150 local jobs.

3 Mr Sproat said: “We’ve waited 18 years for something to happen on The Dump.
“We’re all asking questions and nobody is giving us any answers, so if it’s got to be coal, let’s go for it. “Coal is a very valuable commodity again.”

He's Parish Council Chairman for Broughton & will not even discuss it till a decision is made by which time if it is Open cast then planning permission will no doubt have been decided, well we'll see.

If you object or have any views on this get along to your parish council meetings & voice your opinion & or concerns.

Coal mining would not necessarily conflict with the long-term aim of simultaneously developing the massive site for a range of leisure and tourist-related activities. ???

The Ministry of Defence has already set four deadlines for Allerdale council and Cumbria County Council to buy the land from it for a nominal £1. The latest deadline is March 31 this year, which was confirmed by Allerdale council on Tuesday.

The North West Development Agency has promised up to £9 million to develop the site. A NWDA spokesman said this week ownership was holding up the land transfer.

He added: “There are a number of commercially sensitive discussions taking place with a variety of parties.

“We are not in a position to divulge further information but the agency and its partners, Allerdale Borough Council, Cumbria County Council and Cumbria Vision, are continuing to work on this project. There have been some issues on legal title and work is ongoing to resolve these issues.”

4 Allerdale council refused to add to the statement.

The same as Tesco & the Cloffocks. What ever happens this has gone on for too long a decision must be made, & local Residents must be kept informed at ALL stages of the decision making process.

Tell the trueth

Check these out & then judge the BNP & then The Muslims.

Now who are the Nazis????????

Common Purpose, a criminal organisation that abuses government posts for gain.

from common purpose website

Although it has 80,000 trainees in 36 cities, 30,000 graduate members and enormous power, Common Purpose (CP) is largely unknown to the general public.

It recruits and trains its leaders to work "beyond authority," to abuse their posts and serve Common Purpose, instead of their own departments, which they then undermine. Its members control the NHS, where it wastes £60 billion, much of it going into private pockets; and controls most of Britains 8,500 quangos which spend £167 billion annually, according to the Cabinet Office. Most of that is waste.

Business rates and tax go up, services go down, the difference is spent on yet more CP quangos.
CP is identifying leaders in all levels of our government to assume power when our nation is replaced by the European Union, in what they call “the post democratic era.” They are learning to rule without democracy, and will bring the EU police state home to every one of us.

Common Purpose is a criminal organisation that enables fraud to be committed across these
government departments to reward pro European local politicians. Corrupt deals are enabled that put property or cash into their pockets by embezzling public assets.

It has members in the NHS, BBC, the police, the legal profession, the church, many of Britain’s 8,500 quangos, local councils, schools, social services, the Civil Service, government ministries, Parliament, and it controls many RDA's (Regional Development Agencies).

Cressida Dick is the Common Purpose senior police officer who authorised the "Shoot to kill" policy without reference to Parliament, the law or the British Constitution. Jean de Menezes was one of the innocents who died as a result. Her shoot to kill policy still stands today.

Common Purpose trained Janet Paraskeva, the Law Society's former Chief Executive Officer.
Surprising numbers of lawyers are CP members. It is no coincidence that justice is more expensive, more flawed and more corrupt. Lawyers in secret family courts routinely commit perjury to pervert the course of justice, knowing CP judges will protect them; a fair trial is now rare. When a challenge was made to the signing of the five EU treaties, which illegally abolish Britain's sovereignty, it was no surprise the courts refused to uphold the law.

Common Purpose was backed by John Prescott's Office of the Deputy Prime Minister (ODPM), and its Chief Executive is Julia Middleton. The Head of the Civil Service Commission is a member.

It is close to controlling Plymouth City Council, where is has subverted the democratic process. Local people cannot get CP's corrupt activities published, because the editors of local papers are in CP, and refuse to let journalists publish the articles.

The power of councillors is being usurped nationally by council executives, as CP substitutes “expert officers” and swamps councillors with paperwork and directives. The ODPM’s councillor monitoring officers can remove councillors who don’t comply, or try to stand up for democracy.􀀁
CP was formed in 1970 by Ted Heath's Conservative Party as part of joining the European Union Dictatorship. In the 1990’s, with its members' cross departmental influence, it was involved with what then became the disastrous New Millennium Dome Company and the squandering of £800 million; it appears £300m of this was diverted into the web of quangos set up by CP. There is a fraud case over this, stalled in the courts thanks to CP's influence in the legal profession.

Over £100 million of our money has been spent on CP courses alone, and its been hidden from the public. No published accounts, and members names are a guarded secret. It charges substantial figures for its courses. Matrix for example costs £3,950 plus VAT, and courses for the high flying ‘leader’ can be as much as £9,950 plus VAT. This money is ours, paid by government departments financing senior staff to become agents for CP, instead of loyal to their own jobs.

Common Purpose International (Ltd by guarantee No. 2832875) is registered as an educational charity, No 1023384. Given it targets the powerful with expensive fees, its charity status stinks and should be revoked.􀀁
Common Purpose - training our future EU rulers - continued􀀁
Potential Common Purpose subjects are selected for training. Are they susceptible to being converted; are they in the right job, with the right colleagues and friends? Do they have power, influence and the control of money? The local Common Purpose Advisory Board then decides if they can do the course.

While on the courses candidates are assessed; are they corruptable; will they abuse their positions, commit fraud and lie for Common Purpose? If so they are selected for the inner sanctum; but half are not, and can honestly say they've seen nothing wrong􀀁
Trained leaders are encouraged to act as a network, enable other members' plans, and have meetings under the so called Chatham House rules. This effectively means their statements are not attributable to them, nor can attendees reveal information heard at a Common Purpose meeting.

Council Officers are having secret meetings with, for example, property developer Common Purpose friends. No agendas and no minutes. Common Purpose Graduates from the public quango sectors such as the Regional Development Agencies attend, and award large sums of public money to these projects.

It is the worst national example of cronyism, closed contract bids, fraud and corruption. And unseen to the general public.

Common Purpose undermines traditionally effective and efficient government departments with an overwhelming influx of new language, political correctness and management initiatives. The talk is of change, empowering communities, vision, worklessness, mainstreaming (sucking EU money into a project to sustain it), community empowerment, working partnership, regeneration and celebrating diversity etc etc. Documents appear about change, and reorganisation.

As CP “leaders” become more senior they employ countless managers and bureaucrats. In time
confusion rules, and things don’t seem to work properly. Management decisions are made that seem stupidly destructive. The organisation’s performance becomes sluggish. Undermining the NHS is Common Purpose’s biggest success so far, with bureaucrats outnumbering hospital staff three to one.

David Cameron, who is an EU plant, uses the language and techniques of Common Purpose against the Conservative Party. By changing, with nothing to change to, he is paralyzing the Conservative party.

Common Purpose specifically targets children from the age of 13, and more recently age 4, for sex or leadership and citizenship training. Yes, it is active in schools, and again the average parent has no idea.

People have contacted us to speak of their experiences with Common Purpose. A common theme is its all sweetness and light, until you fail to follow the direction set by the CP leadership. Then interesting things happen. Ladies in particular have been bullied at work, some have lost their jobs, some have become paranoid and depressed at the pressure from people ganging up on them.

A typical story is a husband describing the decline in his wife from the time she becomes a Common Purpose graduate. Loss of sparkle, enthusiasm, anxious and ‘changed’, and she initiated a divorce.

Other Common Purpose people lie when they are challenged as to their involvement.
Common Purpose candidates are given a two day residential course in which they are ‘trained’ in a closed residential environment, such as a small hotel. They are encouraged to reveal personal information about themselves, such as their likes, dislikes, ambitions and dreams.

Discussions are then controlled by the course leaders. Some participants have likened this to Delphi technique, NLP, or the application of group psychology such as Cognitive Dissonance or brainwashing.

If you suspect Common Purpose is active in your organisation, or see a pattern of incredibly bad
decisions, money being wasted, notice bullying, fraud, or threats, note the names of those involved. And publish the truth about Common Purpose as widely as you can.
