'building Britain's Future'.

Recommended Posts

The Government's draft legislative programme, to be unveiled on Monday, is expected to include plans to give patients, parents and residents more personalised services, along with greater powers of redress if public bodies fall short.

In a bullish interview with The Times, Mr Brown indicated that he hopes a swift economic recovery, coupled with the promise to put power in the hands of the voter, will restore Labour's fortunes in time for the election expected next spring.

The proposals, set out in a document entitled Building Britain's Future, will foreshadow legislation in the Queen's Speech this autumn and can be expected to influence Labour's manifesto for the election.

Downing Street confirmed that the draft programme will be published on June 29, but declined to comment on its contents.

But it is expected to include a new requirement for police to work more closely with residents, who will have more say over the siting of CCTV cameras in their area and the ability to phone police for advice on crime hotspots.

Residents' complaints about types of crime prevalent in their neighbourhood could be taken into account by magistrates when passing sentences and residents could also be given a say over where offenders such as vandals should serve their "community payback" sentences.

Mr Brown said: "We are prepared to take on any vested interest that stands in the way of better services. Services exist not for the public servants but for the people who are there to be served. For the patient, parent, resident and citizen our first focus will be how they can be better served."

Mr Brown dismissed speculation that he might leave office before the election, sparked by a recent interview in which he suggested he could "walk away" from the trappings of power at any time.

"I have got a job to do," he told The Times. "One that every day I address with new enthusiasm."

Apologies to those who have seen this before under another title, but some moderation creature decided the subject was 'off-topic'! - I dare to disagree

Possible Labour legislation is off-topic??? :blink:

Nu Liars, have spent the last 10 years centralising powers, bypassing Paliment, introducing so called terrorist laws that they use to spy on the population, ignoring the people because they know better, spent billions of taxpayers money to spy on honest taxpayers, wasted taxpayers money on every free loader who wanted some.

And Brown thinks that him telling us a leopard can change it's spots 10 months before an election will make him popular.

The man is just dillusional.

Edit: They even lie about the title. It should be "We have spent Britains future already."

If Bremner, Bird & Fortune tried to parody this guy they just couldn't do it any better than he does it himself.

I can't work out whether he is more mad for the statements or for thinking that there is anyone left in the country who takes any of it seriously any more.

What this is actually about is putting in place a mechanism to deliver savage cuts in services.

Ministry of Plenty.

Probably won't allow 'Iraq', 'Congo', or 'Somalia', though..

It is; only you are paying for this one!

Just wait until you see the rest of the programme

I can see why Ash. I've only read the first one so far.

May I warn any true human being that you will need to be strong to avoid wanting to give up on the physical plane.

EDIT:- I cut & pasted Ash's post from my thread now in 'off-topic'.... & the links no longer work. Sorry

ELECTION NOW!

We really can't put up with another 12 months of this nonsense and the empty platitudes, whilst untold damage is being done to the economy and our kids' futures are being pwned.

This lot truly are the worst, most dishonest, self-serving government we have ever had.

It's like they have absolutely no connection whatsoever with reality nor the electorate.
