What would a Gorden Brown PM mean for Britian ?

Politics / UK Politics Sep 26, 2006 - 07:00 PM GMT

By: Sarah_Jones

Politics

On the day when Tony Blair made his last speech at a labour party conference, we ponder what a Gorden Brown Premiership would mean for Britian ?

Gordon Brown having waited some 10 years, is now poised to become the next PM sometime during the next 9 months.


On face value, there is not much difference in declared policy substance between Gordon Brown and Tony Blair. But the problem is that there are substantial areas of policy where he hasn't set out any details.

He has shown that he cares passionately and deeply about the developing world and that he thinks seriously about the nature of society and the relationships between the individual and the social structures they form part of.

His achievements to date include the granting of independence in monetary policy to the Bank of England, 10 solid years of economic growth, record employment, low inflation and low interest rates. The only negative is the high level of debt i.e. both public and private sector, especially since the 'golden rule' despite the fiddling has been broken !

Thus, this is likely to translate into a more conservative government, i.e. less risk taking then Tony Blair's march into an unwinnable war in Iraq, and more low key. He is likely to give more independence to government departments and the regions.

Overall, he has shown himself to be a great No 2 !, whether this can translate into a great No1, is a separate question, as he will need to face the electorate in a general election ! with the Tories for the first time in 15 years, with an attractive face to the broad mass of the electorate and pose a real and credible threat to New Labour!

TRIBUNAL SET TO DELIVER VERDICT ON GP'S 'SEX AND RACE' CLAIMS

Date : 07.02.08

A GERMAN GP living in Witham will have to wait to hear the verdict of an employment tribunal hearing her claim that she suffered racial and sexual discrimination virtually from the moment she started working for an Essex health trust.

Dr Marion Becker told an employment tribunal that as part of the deal to recruit her to the Witham, Braintree and Halstead Care Trust in 2003 she was promised a "Golden Hello" payment of £12,000.

But the payment was not finally made until July 2005, she told the third day of the hearing in Bury St Edmunds and no-one at the trust could explain why.

Giving evidence with the assistance of an interpreter, Dr Becker, of The Oaks, Witham, said that when faced with a financial deficit, the trust had failed to consult with her properly before saying she was to be made redundant.

Dr Becker is claiming unfair dismissal, sexual and racial discrimination against the Mid Essex Primary Care Trust - successor to the Witham, Braintree and Halstead Care Trust - and it's chief executive Dr Paul Zollinger-Read.

Dr Becker was employed for three and a half years as a salaried locum.

But the tribunal heard that in May 2006 when faced with the need to make cuts to address an £18 million budget deficit the trust's management had decided to axe the locum GP service.

Chief executive Dr Zollinger-Read, himself a GP in Braintree, told the tribunal that the sole reason for Dr Becker being made redundant had been the need for financial economies.

The tribunal was adjourned to allow the panel to consider Dr Becker's claims. A decision will be announced later.

Democracy in Britain

Did any person in this country vote for Gorden Brown as PM? Did any person in this country vote for Peter Mandelson as MP?

Are we going to persue the poor, unfortunate CEO of Lloyds when Brown created new legislation to allow the take-over of HBOS?

Is there any democracy left in this country?

I regret you having passed a comment about people of this country not welcoming immigrants into this country .I feel it was untrue .I for one welcome any imigrants who come to this country legaly and who are a willing to pay thier way and who also pay all thier taxes just as us british do.It is the illegal ones that I object to as a lot of other people do .I for one will not vote labour.
