£80m to protect Dizzy Nicky
Nick Clegg, nicknamed Dizzy Nicky because of his
constant “U” turns, told the BBC [Radio
Sheffield 17th December 2010] that the £80m loan to Forgemasters
to build parts for nuclear power stations, which the coalition cancelled
as part of a review of Labour's spending decisions in June, could
be looked at again. He also told the BBC
"I would dearly like to see us support it if we can,".
Business Secretary Vince Cable has previously said he would "entertain"
a fresh loan application from Forgemasters.
Clegg went on record in June when the coalition cancelled the
loan by saying: “The truth is
that this loan [£80m to Forgemasters] was promised by the outgoing
Labour Government as a calculated ploy to win support in Sheffield
just ahead of the election, when they knew all along that there simply
wasn't the money to keep to that pledge in first place.”
Cameron said it was right to review the decisions [£80m
to Forgemasters] that were taken very close to the election by the
last government."There was a suspicion
that while some of these decisions might have been good decisions,
not all of them were good decisions and not all of them were good
value for money".
On the 8 September 2010 during Prime Ministers Question time, when
Nick Clegg stood in for David Cameron, the Cardiff West MP Kevin Brennan
urged a rethink, but Mr Clegg, MP for Sheffield Hallam, insisted
it was the right decision to cancel the loan to Sheffield Forgemasters.
Could it be that Mr. Clegg may say “The
truth is that this loan is promised as a calculated ploy to win support
in Sheffield for the Liberal democrats?” I doubt he will.
Isn’t it nice to know we have a coalition government that is
Fair and Honest, even though nobody voted for it, nobody wants it,
and nobody likes it, including the coalition themselves.
One might think the Coalition leaders are a little inexperienced,
Wickileaks revealed an email from Mervin King who expressed the same
views, there was talk of Mervin King from the Bank Of England being
forced to resign for expressing these thoughts.
Talking of Wickileaks, there is an awful lot of fuss over what has
been released, most of it trivial, none of it security conscience,
this interesting article from the Daily mail] but the Americans
want to extradite him, and charge him. With cries from the USA that
he should be jailed for life, assassinated, and other death threats,
it would appear that the UK shouldn’t allow extradition if his
life is being threatened, unlike failed asylum seeker Iraqi Kurd Aso
Mohammed Ibrahim who was jailed for four months after knocking down
Amy Houston in Blackburn in 2003, and leaving her to die under his
car, while he ran off. With a string of past offences, because he
fathered 2 children after the killing, he can’t be deported.
The 4 month prison sentence was an insult to the parents of Amy Huston,
Aso Mohammed Ibrahim won his right to stay in Britain by using the
Rights Act the girl’s father asks, “And where are
my Human Rights?”
