Mail Online, November 18, 2010: Migrant levels from outside the EU to Britain should be slashed by up to 25 per cent next year, the body tasked with setting the Government's immigration cap said today. The Migration Advisory Committee, an independent body commissioned by the Government, recommends at least a 13 per cent cut and up to a quarter. The number of visas for skilled workers with job offers and highly skilled workers arriving on spec should drop to between 37,400 and 43,700 for 2011/12. This would mean a reduction of between 6,300 and 12,600 compared to last year, according to the Committee's Professor David Metcalf. Visas for students from outside the EU will also need to be more than halved - with more than 87,000 cut - if the coalition is to meet its target by 2015. The recommendations came on the day new research suggested white Britons will be a minority by 2066 if immigration continues at the current rate - Government's own immigration watchdog says numbers must be cut by a quarter

Sånn går det når virkelighetsfjerne politikere styrer:

    uSwitch.com, November 18, 2010: Around 5.5 million households in the UK are living in "fuel poverty" and struggling to afford heating for their homes, according to a study. National Energy Action (NEA), which produced the report, says that the government must provide help to the most vulnerable, as figures show that they are spending more than 10% of their income on energy. The figures have been released ahead of tomorrow's launch of the Warm Homes campaign, an annual partnership project between NEA and Energy Action Scotland, a group that believes 35% of Scottish homes are struggling to afford fuel bills. Jenny Saunders, Chief Executive of the NEA, called the situation "unacceptable" - Over 5m struggling to heat their homes, says research

En liten detalj vedrørende voldspøblene i London:

    TheBlaze, December 9, 2010: U.K. students have increasingly grown violent Thursday as the government has voted to authorize tuition hikes. That violence was encouraged Thursday afternoon by a representative reportedly of the socialist group Revolution, who called on students to fight austerity measures. According to the group’s website, “fight” may be more than a figurative call. With the vote now in, and the tuition increases official, more violence is expected - Socialist ‘Revolution’ Leader Calls on U.K. Students to ‘Fight’ as Violence Worsens

Men har regjeringen vært så smart som den burde? Den har foreslått en tredobling av studieavgiftene. DLFs tommelfingerregel er at slike endringer bør skje med ca 10 % hvert år i en ti-års periode. Burde ikke dette være mye mer spiselig?

Jo. Alt tyder på at regjeringen sterkt undervurderte hvor stor motstanden ville bli.

The Telegraph, December 9, 2010: Financial pressures may mean junior doctors are not given training posts within the NHS and the overall number of places at medical school could drop, a report has said. This is despite extra burdens on the health service, including European rules limiting doctors' hours, more hospital admissions and people living longer than ever before, according to the study from the UK Royal Colleges of Physicians (RCP). Those specialties dedicated to looking after very ill people are facing particular strain, it said. Dr Andrew Goddard, RCP director of medical workforce, said the combination of factors was 'adding further stress to a system which may reach breaking point within the next few years' - NHS reaching 'breaking point', doctors warn

The Telegraph, December 11, 2010: It is probably fair to say that, in the real world, the need to fight runaway global warming was not at the top of most people’s agenda last week. The Central England Temperature record, the oldest in the world, showed the fortnight covering the end of November and start of December as the coldest ever since the daily record began in 1772. North of the border, Scotland’s First Minister, Alex Salmond, had to call in the Army as much of his country ground to a halt in up to three feet of snow. None of this, however, remotely concerned the warmists, who were in fuller cry than ever - Climate change: the warmist demands heat up as 'green’ costs soar

The Telegraph, December 16, 2010: As snow began falling again across the country, the Government confirmed that the situation could become “very serious,” with some households already facing waits of up to four weeks before they can receive supplies. The Office of Fair Trading announced that it was monitoring allegations of price fixing among suppliers, as the average cost of a litre of oil leapt to more than 70p from just over 40p a month ago. Around six per cent of households rely on heating oil, many in remote areas away from mains supplies. Six out 10 families in Northern Ireland, 505,000 homes, are dependent on oil deliveries. There are another 828,000 users in England and 155,000 in Scotland. Figures are unavailable for Wales, but are likely to be significant due to the high levels of households outside of towns and cities. Across the United Kingdom, a number of public bodies, including rural schools and hospitals, also depend on oil for heat - Millions facing fuel rationing over Christmas as heating oil runs low

Daily Mail, January 14, 2011: Four out of five people want to see cuts in the level of immigration, a large-scale survey carried out for the Government has revealed. More than half the population want to see numbers coming from abroad to live in Britain reduced by ‘a lot’, it found. The poll, carried out for the Communities Department, showed that public demand for reducing immigration is overwhelming and growing - Immigration is too high, say four in five Britons

The Sun, January 22, 2011: Britain is being swamped by a hidden crimewave - as two million offences a year are simply "forgotten". About half of crimes are not even reported to police because people feel it is a waste of time. And cops "screen out" up to half of offences they are told about - as they think there is little hope of catching the villains. It means three out of four offences - that is 2.1 million or four every minute - are effectively buried each year. The figures, revealed by Freedom of Information requests from The Sun, make a nonsense of this week's statistics showing a seven per cent drop in recorded crime - Britain’s 2 million lost crimes

The Guardian, January 27, 2011: Union leaders joined former defence chiefs today in damning the decision to scrap a fleet of nine new RAF Nimrod reconnaissance aircraft that cost nearly £4bn to build. As cranes continued to break up the planes at BAE Systems' plant at Woodford, Greater Manchester, in a demolition job reported to be costing £200m, John Fussey of Unite said it amounted to "barbaric vandalism". On its website, savethenimrods.org, Unite argues that alternatives to the Nimrods will be ineffective. "Defence of the nation has been compromised," it says. In a letter to the Daily Telegraph, six former military chiefs of staff said destroying the Nimrods opened a "massive gap in British security". The aircraft has been dogged by delays, safety and design problems, and huge cost overruns. Twenty-one were originally ordered in 1996 at an estimated cost of £2.8bn. The order was reduced to nine costing £3.65bn. The decision to abandon them was made during last year's strategic security and defence review (SSDR). The government said the decision would save £2bn over 10 years - Nimrod row: union joins defence chiefs to condemn scrapping of spy planes

The Telegraph, January 30, 2011: BBC executives are trying to raid Government funds intended to tackle world poverty in an attempt to lessen the impact of cuts on the World Service. A secret memo leaked to the Telegraph shows that the state-funded broadcaster has lobbied ministers to divert £25 million out of the budget of the Department for International Development (DFID) and into its own finances. The corporation claims that the move would be justified because World Service broadcasts can "contribute to the stabilisation of Pakistan and Afghanistan". DFID is one of only two Whitehall departments that have escaped the squeeze on public spending. Its budget will rise with inflation over coming years. The appeal by the BBC follows last week's announcement that five radio language services are to close, in the wake of demands from the Government for the World Service to cut £46 million from its £237 million-a-year budget by 2014 - BBC wants taxpayers' money from fund used to help starving in Africa
