Money Wasted

Money Wasted
Nanny loves to spend money, especially when she knows that it is not hers to spend.

Here's a little list of stuff that she has spent our money on recently.

The Home Orifice has spent around £0.9M on logos, and brand advice, for failing policy initiatives and quangos over the last 5 years.

Within this sum is £56K, spent on a circle with the word Respect in the middle, and £200K on a design for the Criminal Records Bureau.

Shadow Home Secretary David Davis said:

"This is typical of the Government's obsession

with spin over substance and delivery.

When it comes to respect the Government should start

respecting the public's intelligence.

The public realise that only money invested

in neighbourhood policing and tackling the causes of crime,

not jazzy logos, will cut anti-social behaviour
."

James Frayne, campaign director of the Taxpayers' Alliance, thinks it's all bollocks.

Quote:

"There's clearly something deeply wrong with any department

that spends the best part of a million pounds of taxpayers' money

on logos that could have been designed by someone

on work experience in their lunch break.

No doubt 2007 will see the same sort of

comical incompetence from the department

that is supposed to be keeping us all safe
."

Meanwhile Nanny is now mulling splitting the Home Orifice into two...if this happens, the "new improved" Home Orifices will of course need rebranding and new logos.

Marvellous!

    Well you know why surely?

    A problem shared is a problem doubled.

    So twice as many 'civil servants' and laws required. An extra ministerial position and under-positions to fill and another way to help or hinder political careers.

    More hand-wringing and knee-jerking opportunities and a 'sense of shared responsibility'. Or, to put it the other way, planty of people will have touched the buck in passing.

    But I think the main reason is to maximise the opportunities for presenting more policy variations than than the public can begin to comprehend. Soon they will have a policy for all the different preferences that are likely to be found in the country no matter what your personal position may be.

    Nanny will be all-pervasive.

  4. earlier, Grant said, "Soon they will have a policy for all the different preferences..."
    MY preference is that Tone, Georgie Porgie and all the other Nulabias should piss off now and leave us alone; any chance?
    Meanwhile, I am trying to devise a new logo for NL: basically, it is a circle of aresoles recumbent. Who do I send it to to claim my 50 grand?

    Two chances: I'm afraid they are no chance, and a snowflake in hell's chance!
