Could you possibly confirm whether these are a) actual job losses i.e postholders have been dismissed b) job reductions (managing vacant posts) or c) proposals by Trusts about the possible impact on the workforce.

I think the distinction is very important because either a postholder has lost their job or they haven't. So, really, how many people have actually been made redundant? It's not a trick question, I just don't know the answer.

This is all coming from the Public Domain so I cannot really do this.

How many, apart from Crisp, are office wallahs and how many are frontline workers including ancillary?
john said…
No idea about the balance between office and frontline. My source for these is originally the media with work being done in the Lib Dems.
Bob Piper said…
So... John, you are admitting that these 'job cuts' may not be redundancies. They may be efficiencies, such as those proposed by the government to transfer resources from backline to frontline jobs, they may simply be the decision not to fill posts which have been held vacant for some time, they may be media scare stories which you are tamely trotting out, or they may be from reports written by Trusts to the SHA about a 'potential' impact of PCT budget reductions.

All very different to your bold assertion of up to date job cuts, I'm afraid. Typically Lib Dem though.
john said…
I suppose Nigel Crisp was actually not a job cut, but in fact a job expansion.

Otherwise they are from the Media all I have done is to take part in a collation process.
Bob Piper said…
Perhaps you could usefully 'collate from the media' all of the stories from the Birminham Post and Evening Mail about the fiasco the ruling coalition are making in running Birmingham... because obviously if it is in the media, it must be true.

Millionaires and politics

The Labour Party spent most of the last election criticising me for being a successful businessman (aka millionaire). That is business in the private sector employing over 250 people. It is worth looking at the situation for the Labour Candidate now:

For the year 2016-7 Annual Income from Parliament74,962Specifically for her book51,250Other media income etc5,322.82Total declared income131,534.82

Traditionally anyone with an annual income of over £100,000 has been considered to be a millionaire. I did not use my position in parliament to increase my income.


I have been asked for sources for this. This BBC piece looks at how one should define rich. It was written in 2011 so the figures will be slightly out of date. There are perhaps 2 relevant pieces:
"In 1880 a rich person would have had £100,000 in assets or an income of £10,000 a year, he says. About a hundred people a year died leaving £100,000 and by 1910 this was 250 - "a microscopic fraction of the number of death…

Gender Issues comparison of candidates

John Hemming believes that an MP should represent everyone in their constituency.  This should be regardless of their race, religion, gender, abledness, sexual orientation or anything else.  It should be everyone.

When he was an MP he worked on issues relating to men, those relating to women and those relating to non-binary people. Everyone.

For example here is John Hemming on a demonstration outside the courts with the campaign group Women Against Rape (it related to the case of a mother who had her child removed from her because the mother was raped).




Jess Phillips, who campaigns on women's issues, notwithstanding the questions asked about her appointments in her parliamentary office, had the following response when asked for a debate on issues specifically relating to men:

The Labour Candidate's Book Promotion Tour and Why It Matters

In the 2015 General Election the Labour Candidate criticised John Hemming for having an external interest and made a pledge that she would be a "Full Time MP for Yardley and my only other job will be mom & carer ...".  Here is a copy of that pledge:


Since that point she has been working on paid Television Programmes and has also written a book. John Hemming has made no secret of the fact that he chairs the board of the company he founded in 1983. This involves one meeting a month. When he was the MP for Yardley he was a full time MP and the Job of being MP for Yardley came first. The Labour candidate has reported 1,274 hours of work other than being an MP in the two years she has been elected and her income in the last year was over £131,000.

Ignoring the question as to how she reconciles that with her "pledge" the question is raised as to what extent her external activity conflicts with the role of Member of Parliament for Yardley. She is supposed to de…
