Water companies preparing for the next government.

Keen to keep the gravy and human excrement flowing at the expense of the Great British public.

Re: The Chronicles of Rishi

Rule one of emails - once it’s sent, assume the whole world will be able to see it; don’t say anything you can’t defend in public…

I did a couple of contracts for the civil service in the mid noughties and very quickly learned the art of the conversation on the stairs. It’s an actual thing.

Even the Johnson trick of using WhatsApp wouldn't have been much better if you've got a potential leak.

Same in local government, particularly when discussing the latest FOI or EIR request form a particularly vociferous local action group (though these days it's more often than not by phone - nearest thing to stairs in the modern remote working world).

You’d think she would have learned a lesson from when she was in charge at Openreach and was heard to describe older employees who’d been there a fair few years as dinosaurs.

The residents of Mid Beds would be better off with a tortoise as MP than Nadine.

She's just used the role cynically as a cash point. Any MP making half an effort there for the constituency would be an upgrade, whatever their party.

Ooh…. I’ve come a cropper to the “reply to all” a few times……………

Sometimes you just have to style it out.

Recall email, doesn’t work, never has, never will.

Lol, ditto.

Every time you see a "recalled email", it's normally worth reading.

Re: The Chronicles of Rishi

Not one but two buts of good news today for Sunak.

Sue Gray broke Civil Service code by discussing a job with Labour, Cabinet Office probe finds

Sue Gray broke the Civil Service code by discussing a job with Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer, a Cabinet Office investigation has concluded.

In a written ministerial statement, Cabinet Office minister Jeremy Quin said the "undeclared contact" between her and Sir Keir constituted a breach.

"The rules and guidance that govern the conduct of civil servants are clear and transparent," he added. "It is deeply unfortunate that events have transpired in this way."

But he insisted he remained "confident in the impartiality of our Civil Service".

Labour’s poll lead falls despite public disagreeing with Tories’ handling of cost of living crisis

Labour’s lead over the Conservatives has dropped despite growing public concerns about the Government’s handling of the cost of living crisis.

New polling by BMG for i shows Labour’s lead stands at 14 percentage points, down three points from last month and back to the level last seen in April.

The surprise fall will prompt further questions over Sir Keir Starmer’s cautious approach amid growing pressure from his own side to be bolder and set out a clear vision for the country.
