Chaotic scenes at Education Department as civil servants outnumber desks

Jacob Rees-Mogg, making a gesture that well defines him.

Is this Jacob Rees-Mogg’s comeuppance after he went around leaving nasty notes on empty civil service desks, for them to see after they returned from home working?

In notes left for civil servants, he wrote: “Sorry you were out when I visited. I look forward to seeing you in the office very soon.”

Nadhim Zahawi took Rees-Mogg’s demand for a return to the office seriously, and told officials at the Department for Education to “immediately” return to “pre-Covid working” after an audit found that the DfE had the lowest attendance of any Government department, at a quarter capacity.

Well, unless pre-Covid working took place in corridors and canteens, he didn’t get his wish!

It turns out that, before the pandemic, the DfE only had an occupancy rate of 60 to 70 per cent because of the department’s flexible working policy.

And changes to the department’s estate, such as giving up space at the DfE’s London headquarters, has meant there are fewer desks than previously – 4,200 to accommodate 8,009 staff.

So after the department’s top civil servant, permanent secretary Susan Acland-Hood, was joined by ministers to tell officials to work 80 per cent of their week in the office, chaos ensued:

Civil servants at the Department for Education have been forced to work in corridors and canteens.

Whole teams have been turned away from some offices because of overcrowding.

According to Schools Week, staff were sent home from the department’s Sheffield office after a mass return earlier this month, despite some staff already working from the canteen.

Online meetings were also forced to take place with staff perched on the end of shared seating because meeting rooms were full.

The Tories have insisted that having more people than desks was the practice at the department.

Were they saying that chaos is supposed to be the practice at the Department for Education and that it was the intended result of Rees-Mogg’s interference. How revealing!

And isn’t it curious that, while DfE staff – and presumably other civil servants – scrabble for desk space, another government department looks set to spend £20 million on a luxury townhouse for a single, privileged representative – so she can hold lavish parties?

#BorisJohnson under pressure as Cabinet colleagues demand inquiry into #NusratGhani ‘muslimness’ claim

Boris Johnson: the accusations against him are mounting up.

Now what is he going to do?

After Nusrat Ghani joined complaints against Conservative whips, saying one had told her she had been sacked as a transport minister because her “Muslimness” was making colleagues “uncomfortable”, both Health Secretary Sajid Javid and Education Secretary Nadhim Zahawi have insisted on an investigation.

Both are themselves Muslims, although Javid is non-practising.

He tweeted the following on the subject:

And this is what Zahawi had to say about it:

Dominic Raab, as Deputy Prime Minister, said there could be no inquiry unless Ms Ghani submitted a formal complaint, which she declined to do at the time.

But Ms Ghani has now added to her original claim by saying prime minister Boris Johnson, while refusing to get involved when she was sacked, had offered her only one way of making a complaint – and it was inappropriate:

So it seems she spoke to Johnson in June 2020 about her sacking in February that year but he said he “could not get involved”.

Instead, she’s saying, he suggested she should use the internal Conservative Party complaints process – that would not be appropriate for something that happened on government business; she says she doesn’t even know whether the words spoken to her about her sacking were by a member of the Conservative Party.

This seems to be a claim that Tory chief whip Mark Spencer was mistaken when he said her claim about being sacked because of her “Muslimness” related to a conversation with him.

The new statement calls Johnson’s behaviour into question yet again: Did he misdirect Ms Ghani?

And it comes at the worst possible time for a prime minister who is under extreme pressure over his conduct regarding the now-infamous Downing Street parties that took place while the rest of us – including the Queen – were under lockdown…

… and who is already facing questions about whether Tory whips have been blackmailing MPs to prevent them from submitting letters of “no confidence” in his leadership.

With Cabinet ministers now asking hard questions, will this be the straw that finally breaks Boris Johnson?

Stable-heater Zahawi rushes to deny #OperationRedMeat to save #BorisJohnson’s bacon

Duper’s delight: Boris Johnson (wherever he is) may well be wearing this smile today, as his lieutenants rush to defend him and sway public opinion back in his favour with a dripfeed of drivel. Are you going to let him get away with it?

Nadhim Zahawi, the Education Secretary, wants us to know that he is refusing to recognise suggestions of an “Operation Red Meat” strategy to save Boris Johnson’s bacon.

Zahawi, who himself is no angel after trying to get the public to pay for his stables to be heated by claiming it on his MP expenses, wants us to think Johnson is in no danger of dismissal, despite votes of “no confidence” from 35 sitting Tory MPs and one suspended Tory (Anne Marie Morris), and revelation upon revelation every day.

“He’s human and he makes mistakes,” said Zahawi. Yes indeed, we all are and do. But most of us don’t make the same mistake continually over a period lasting at least 11 months, possibly much longer. That is a pattern of behaviour.

Zahawi has also denied some of the details of “Operation Red Meat”, saying sending the military to deal with refugee boats trying to cross the channel was something the government had been “seeking to address for a long time”  – and got into hot water on Sky News for doing so:

It’s true: You don’t crack down on people traffickers by sending the military to attack a flimsy boat full of vulnerable refugees from a country the UK abandoned.

Zahawi wasn’t the only one coming out with nonsense to the media.

Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden, challenged by (Islamophobe) Trevor Phillips on Sky News yesterday (January 16), said Johnson would address the culture that allowed the Downing Street parties to happen:

There’s just one problem with that: Johnson won’t do anything about any such culture because he is the one who created it and fuels it.

All Dowden’s other comments – the vast majority of his speech, in fact – were tangential; Johnson’s decisions on Covid-19 have little bearing on the parties that were hosted at his house. And in any case, those decisions were either wrong or late, meaning the UK’s Covid-19 death toll has been far higher than it should have been.

The only way Tory Covid policy could be linked with the parties is if it is pointed out that Boris Johnson made a decision to enjoy drinkies with his party buddies while the rest of us were losing loved ones because of his decision not to fight Covid-19 in the proper way and at the proper time.

We need to keep that in mind, no matter what drivel the Tories and their mouthpieces in the media throw at us.

Why did stable-heater #NadhimZahawi lie when the truth makes both #Tories and #Labour look bad?

Flag-shagging liar: Nadhim Zahawi.

The UK’s leaders – on both sides of the political divide – are insane.

With millions of people infected with the Omicron variant (and other variants) of Covid-19 over the Christmas period, many thousands hospitalised, and the National Health Service pushed beyond its limits in attempting to cope, hindsight tells us there should have been a lockdown the instant Omicron was discovered.

But Tory education secretary Nadhim Zahawi – the Tory who infamously claimed public money as expenses so he could heat his stables, interviewed by the BBC’s Sophie Raworth on Sunday morning, attacked Labour’s Wes Streeting for advocating just such an approach!

And – worse still – Streeting then insisted on correcting the record, pointing out that he did not call for a lockdown and posting video evidence to prove it:

How does this make Labour look better?

Streeting just admitted he supported a plan that has killed hundreds of people, hospitalised thousands, and may force millions to live with Long Covid for years to come, while crippling the National Health Service that was created by a previous Labour government.

And Zahawi just admitted that it was Tory policy to cause those hundreds of deaths, hospitalise those thousands of people, infect millions with Long Covid and attack the NHS.

Both the Tories and Labour have disgraced themselves.

Zahawi made matters worse for the Tory government by lying about investment in the NHS, repeating claims about the recruitment of nurses and doctors that were proved to be false, long ago.

I’ll hand you over to Peter Stefanovic for those facts:

These Tory MPs aren’t even hiding their racism any more

James Gray: warned about racism

This Writer doesn’t approve of offensive language but Super Tanskiii, below, hits it on the head with this one:

It would be funny if it wasn’t about racism because it’s a Tory undermining his own party’s ministers.

As it is, though, it seems James Gray really should be forced out of his role as St John Ambulance “commander of charity” after – at a reception to honour that charity on September 8 – confusing then-Vaccines Minister Nadhim Zahawi and Health Secretary Sajid Javid, and then (allegedly) saying, “They all look the same to me.”

Whether he said those last words or not, it seems St John Ambulance chiefs made it clear to him that the organisation does not tolerate racism at all – and that he has been asked to stand down from all activity related to the charity.

Typically, the racist Tory Party let him off with a warning.

But what interests me is the fact that Labour leader Keir Starmer was among the guests at the event, and he said nothing about the incident at the time.

Teachers’ pay: Zahawi’s promises are a big Con – aren’t they?

Nadhim Zahawi: flag-waving is no substitute for straight-talking – and he’s talking nonsense gibberish.

Teachers! Confused about the Tory government’s plans to raise your pay?

YOU SHOULD BE!

The government has announced plans to increase starting pay for teachers to £30,000 per year, which is still lower than the national average.

But when is that going to happen?

First it was to be from April 2022, but then the Tories imposed a pay freeze instead.

Now, there’s a vague desire to bring it in by the end of the Parliament.

But to hear new Education Secretary Nadhim Zahawi waffling about it, you’d be none the wiser.

Reading a transcript doesn’t help either.

Meanwhile – well, see for yourself:

So, after promising an increase in teachers’ pay…

… the Tories have actually cut it. Yeah – so much for “levelling up”.

Starmer runs away from Green New Deal campaigners [Also in the news]

The excuses man: when approached about the environment, Starmer makes his excuses and runs away.

Wasn’t the Green New Deal a major part of Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour policy?

And Keir Starmer was fully behind it then.

But now he seems to have performed a massive about-turn – and is actually avoiding campaigners against climate change.

How does he think this is acceptable?

Also in the news:

Public dissatisfaction with Starmer continues to rise

Sunak tells NHS staff if they don’t like their pitiful pay rise they should retrain and get better jobs

The mystery of the Education Secretary’s A-level results may be solved

More government cronyism and corruption

And finally: A reminder of what Boris Johnson said he would do if Brexit emptied supermarket shelves

Zahawi replacing Williamson in suggested Cabinet change would be going from bad to worse

Nadhim Zahawi: waving the flag and messing up the message.

If Boris Johnson really is planning to reshuffle his cabinet, I see the plan is still to surround himself with people who are even more incompetent and corrupt than he is.

Nadhim Zahawi is tipped to replace Gavin Williamson as Education Secretary after Williamson’s latest gaffe – pretending to forget his own A-level results in an LBC interview:

Williamson previously tried to have thousands of students’ A-level results marked down, using an algorithm that artificially boosted privately-educated pupils over those who went to state school.

He demanded a ramping-up of discipline in schools, claiming without any evidence that the Covid-19 pandemic had “inevitably” turned our children feral and blaming technology – mobile phones – as a disruptive influence while at the same time praising it for keeping them learning.

When Boris Johnson announced a lockdown in January, Williamson presided over chaos in the education system as primary pupils were sent back to school for just one day before Johnson pulled out the rug from under the system and Williamson had not provided any advance warning – at all – about what was going to happen.

He had previously taken local education authorities to court for keeping schools closed when he wanted them to open, creating confusion and anxiety due to constant mixed-messaging.

He illegally stripped children in care of 65 legal protections after conducting a consultation that was selective about whose opinions it sought. The change proved to be temporary.

He was exposed as a racist when he said children from ethnic minorities need to sit exams. After it was pointed out that those in Wales and Scotland who weren’t going to do so (because of the Covid crisis) may have better results, he scrapped the plan for exams in England.

And don’t even get me started on his plan to offer Latin as a language subject in schools – a dead language for a country that is dying due to Brexit, Covid-19 and the corruption of government ministers like him.

Given all of the above, one might think it is a good thing that Williamson may be going.

But there is just one problem:

Nadhim Zahawi is at least as bad as Williamson – if not worse.

Zahawi wants everyone to think that he has made a great success of the Covid-19 vaccine rollout – he is the Vaccines Minister, after all – but there’s just one problem: it has been run entirely by the NHS.

He’s just the figurehead. His other duties include trying to avoid explaining his prime minister’s financial irregularities, like the Downing Street flat refurbishment:

How about when he had to explain why Johnson had said vaccinations had broken the link between Covid infection and hospitalisation?

Before the vaccines job he was a business minister – and duly messed up explaining why the government wasn’t providing enough help for the self-employed during the Covid crisis:

He has a second job working for an oil company – a conflict of interest at a time when pressure will be put on such firms to green up their act.

Historically, he became notorious during the expenses scandal, after it was revealed that he had claimed public money to heat his stables.

He used a mortgage lender based in a tax haven.

He attended the Presidents Club dinner event- on multiple occasions – where women were subjected to sexual harassment, and did not report the offences.

He objected to Donald Trump’s travel ban against Muslims – but only when his own family were affected.

He is incompetent and he is corrupt.

And it seems Boris Johnson thinks he is perfect material to take over from another corrupt incompetent in a Cabinet role.

It is an apt coincidence that this is being reported on the day the former Welsh Education minister, Kirsty Williams, is in the headlines for speaking out about online abuse she received.

She could have done the Westminster job better than either of these two clowns.

Johnson was wrong when he said link between Covid infection and hospitalisation was broken. Watch Zahawi squirm

Take a look at this from the ever-incisive Peter Stefanovic:

But we can all see and hear the evidence for ourselves; he gave MPs false information that was corrected subsequently at a press conference – where he failed to set his own record straight by saying he was wrong during PMQs.

And Zahawi had to be put right by Marr, in his claims about Covid-19 infections and hospitalisations – both of which are again rising.

The problem is that once again we are being starved of the facts as the experts understand them

What are the facts of the matter? Well, we don’t know – because they are being hidden from us.

Neil Flek Waugh has been red-hot on this. He also wrote:

Would you like some more – known – figures?

And now we are seeing a surge in infections of people who have been double-vaccinated because Johnson spaffed away the advantages gained by the jab in a ridiculous and vain search for trade deals:

Remember this?

It seems our lunatic prime minister will get his wish.

Is time running out for ‘evasion’ politicians like Nadhim Zahawi?

Nadhim Zahawi: this is from 2016, but relevant to today, when he appeared on TV to defend prime minister Boris Johnson’s weird financial arrangements in the run-up to local elections.

Vaccines minister Nadhim Zahawi was on ‘morning media junket’ duty today (May 5) and duly toured the studios showing us how the BBC toes the Tory line rather than doing anything useful.

He made a big thing of the possibility that everybody over 50 could have a third Covid-19 vaccine injection by the autumn (I’m still waiting for my second, although I know autumn is still a long way away), but became the world’s biggest ignoramus when asked about anything else, such as Boris Johnson’s weird finances.

The performances – or rather,  the public reaction to them – suggested more than he wanted, though:

They suggested that time is running out for this kind of evasion. People are wise to it and, through the social media, we are making other people wise to it too.

Consider the following. Here’s how he started out:

And here’s the commentary on it:

Notice that Zahawi had an easy ride on the BBC in comparison with elsewhere:

Ultimately, all the minister achieved was to get people to examine his own record – and it was found wanting:

So it seems the game has been given away and Zahawi’s selfish politics is on the way out.

Or is it?

The only reliable yardstick of public opinion is the result of an election, and we have a huge series of polls across the UK tomorrow (May 6).

On the basis of what they have done, the Conservatives should go down like the proverbial lead balloon.

But will they?

Or are there still enough drones out there – who will vote for them no matter how corrupt they prove to be – to see them through?

I fear the latter. The BBC has to be preaching to someone, after all – and it has the lion’s share of the news audience.
