Dear Chief Secretary to the Treasury,
I'm afraid to tell you there's no money left.
Signed, Liam Byrne

Contract for a Cabinet Minister.

"I will set out a clear and public annual contract for each new Cabinet Minister, detailing what I expect them and their department to deliver to the British people, and that their continued appointment is dependent on their delivery just as it would be in a business or any other organisation."
Said Mr Brown.

Does this sound like somebody who is in post as a result of a democratic process?

And anyway, what does it mean? Probably yet more unattainable targets decided by A. N. Other, and put into place without the means to meet those targets but involving a huge amount of paper shuffling and list-making. That seems to be all they're good at - making lists and looking at them.

Never mind Mrs. R, unless the people of this country really are brain dead his continued employment is about to be terminated. If only we could terminate the employment of Cameron and Clegg at the same time!
