REPLY FROM ESC (CONSERVATIVE) MEMBER: I've just had a reply from Craig Whittaker, a Conservative MP on the Ed. Select Committee. My initial email listed the following concerns with arguments for each and asked for his support as an ESC member: THE OVER-PRESCRIPTIVE CONTENT LACK OF PROPER CONSULTATION THE REMOVAL OF WW2, VICTORIANS AND EGYPTIANS FROM PRIMARIES THE LACK OF RESOURCES THE EFFECTS ON MUSEUMS AND OTHER HERITAGE SITES This was the reply: Dear Mr. Birchall, Thank you for contacting me about the proposed draft history curriculum. The development of skills is important, but I do not believe that it is the Government's role to tell teachers which skills they need to develop in their pupils or how to do that. The new National Curriculum is designed to focus on that essential knowledge and to free teachers up to use their professional judgement to decide what and how to teach beyond that irreducible core. The draft programme of study for Key Stage 2 is designed to provide pupils with a frame of refere ...
ATOS HEALTHCARE/ORIGIN SCAM BECOMES VERY CLEAR If anyone is wondering as to why the grossly unpopular and incompetent Atos Healthcare company is recieving upto 2 billion pounds a year of tax payers money dispite continued failings and charges of incompetence then you should check out these two reports below. You will find that Lord Barnett is of course a member of the House of Lords who has declared an interest of being the Chairman of Atos Origin (UK) Ltd and is also a recorded member of the Bilderberg Group in 2002. No wonder all the cries of outrage at Atos Origin from the public, special interest groups and politicians alike go on deaf ears with this government that is in fact also lead by a Bilderberg Group member. To confirm this assertion just scan down this post to the bold sections to see Lord Barnett and David Camerons involvement.

On this Day in History!!! … The Day I saw Myself being Born/Arriving with Angels, literally, in one of My DREAMS /2009… White House- 1-4-1975… “New Committees” and “Executive Orders”. In response to the growing public distrust of the CIA, President Gerald R. Ford on January 4, 1975, signed Executive Order 11828, which created the Commission on CIA Activities, to be chaired by Vice President Nelson Rockefeller. On January 27, the Senate established its Select Committee to Study Governmental Operations with Respect to Intelligence Activities, under the leadership of Frank Church (D-ID). The House of Representatives created its own Select Committee on Intelligence, later chaired by Otis G. Pike (D-NY), on February 19. (End Fact Sheet)… This is/was Personal to ME!... But The Remaining Traitors are useless & are’nt really able to finish fighting back!
SHERQ News Health Dept could take over Compensation Fund ￼ SA politicians and the Health Department want occupational health, and compensation for injury and disease, in industry as well as mining, run by one authority. ￼ The call could lead to a transfer of the much criticised Compensation Fund fro Member of Parliament Malesane Priscilla Themba (ANC) chairs the Select Committee on Labour and Public Enterprises that grilled Labour Minister Mildred Oliphant and criticised Mineral Resources Minister Susan Shabangu about a lack of health and safety analysis, management and compensation measures.

This was partly in response to the calls for the liberalisation of drug policy by a number of current and former South American Presidents as discussed in Chapter 1. Comparison with alcohol 214. The Government's 2010 drug strategy also covers alcohol addiction as the Government "recognises that severe alcohol dependence raises similar issues and that treatment providers are often one and the same." It is emphasised that alcohol plays "an important part in the cultural life of this country, with large numbers employed in production, retail and the hospitality industry. Pubs, bars and clubs contribute to community and family life and also generate valuable revenue to the economy." However, it notes that alcoho ...

BJP slams govt for not accepting two Parliamentary panel recommendations Last Updated: Friday, February 01, 2013, 19:25 New Delhi: BJP on Friday slammed the government for not accepting two recommendations of a Parliamentary Committee, saying this would deny clear autonomy to Lokpal and render it weak. Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley, who was a member of the Select Committee, also questioned the government for taking the proposed legislation to the Cabinet as it is the property of Parliament. He particularly picked on the government for rejecting the committee's recommendation that Lokpal should have absolute control over CBI officers investigating cases referred to them by the anti-graft ombudsman. He argued that the government's contention that a CBI officer probing a case referred by Lokpal can be transfered by the agency without approval of Lokpal would ensure that the officers would not be able to function "without fear or favour". Jaitley, a renowned lawyer, also attacked the go ...

About Time - good for Cdn Kennel Club At the December 2012 board meeting the EOC reported that it could not support judges varying from existing breed standards. It was noted, however, that some breed clubs have begun the process of changing standards to alter wording in order to allow either natural or docked dogs to be judged on an equitable basis. Given that this concern continues to be unresolved, and based upon the EOC report and the subsequent board discussion, a motion was passed at the December 2012 board meeting to establish a Select Committee on the Tail Docking, Ear Cropping and Dew Claw Removal and CKC Breed Standards. This select committee made up of members of the Board; Wendy Maisey, Joan Bennett and Michael Shoreman (ex-officio) plus staff members; Elio Furlan, Sonny Allinson, and the Executive Director, will review and consider the issue of docking and cropping as it relates to CKC breed standards and CKC activities . The Committee will solicit and encourage final breed club input regardi ...

RUTLAND HERALD 12-24-2012 FAIR HAVEN — The new town manager said he is very excited to start in his new post next month. Herbert Durfee III of Grand Isle was hired Thursday night following an executive session with the Fair Haven Select Board in which salary negotiations were discussed but not disclosed. He is set to begin Jan. 28. “I look forward to leading the town,” the 50-year-old said after he accepted the position. “I look forward to working with the Select Board.” Durfee was unanimously chosen by the Select Board after he was recommended to the post by the town’s search committee last week.

I hope everyone is enjoying a relaxing Christmas Eve and looking forward to a most enjoyable day tomorrow! This time last year, AvON was still collecting signatures for its petition (Mark Gibson and I were in the Re:Start Mall on Boxing Day doing so), which it had yet to present to Parliament. It also had not presented to the select committee, had not initiated and helped to run the very first Spring River Festival, and had not built many of the constructive relationships that it has worked so *** building this year. It has achieved so much in the past year - a lot of it behind-the-scenes relationship building and groundwork for what is yet to come. Congratulations to everyone involved - I hope you look back on your hard work of the past 18 months with pride, and are looking forward to the future with excitement. In the meantime, I also hope you are ready for an enjoyable, relaxing holiday with friends and family. Merry Christmas! - AC

The founding fathers of Sunni Imamate were not appointed through Shura Turning to the assertion itself the advocacy skills of these Nawasib is so poor that they advance defenses for the hero clients that their posthumous clients never themselves even claimed, part of the cult of grossly exaggerated and unjustifiable reverence for the institution of the companions. Don’t take our word for it, allow us to produce the testimony of the chief architect of Saqifa, Umar ibn al Khattab – whose comments negate any suggestion of the legitimacy of the Shura system, for Umar himself notes that it was a system of might is right. Shura would suggest that people enter into some system of consultation to appoint a Khalifa, legitimacy is based on some group exercise whereby they collectively arrive at decision over the best man. This certainly did not occur in the case of Abu Bakr. The debate that took place in Saqifa was between the Ansar and three Muhajirin present in the thatched house of Saqifa (a former gambling ...

Is our Parliament speaker an *** ? -so abysmally ignorant of the laws, Lawyers abroad ask (Lanka-e-News -10.Dec.2012, 2.30PM) Lawyers who are abroad have questioned with grave concern whether the speaker of the Parliament of Sri Lanka is such a mocker and *** that he does not know the elementary laws. Legal luminaries in UK and US speaking to Lanka e news asked this question following the failure of the SL speaker to take appropriate action adhering to the laws after the opposition members of the Select Committee withdrew from it on the ground that the impeachment inquiry was not being conducted duly and impartially. The first step the speaker should take as soon as the opposition members have withdrawn from the Select Committee for whatever reason is to inform the leaders of those parties to fill up those vacancies , and not to carry on the proceedings ignoring that indispensable requirement. Only when the vacancies are not filled after notice is so given , the speaker can take a decision whether or not ...

UNP stance diametrically opposed to MaRa’s statement- (Lanka-e-News -12.Dec.2012, 11.55PM) While the Lawyers in one voice and unanimously are demanding the Govt. to withdraw the ‘Kekille’ report ( mockery of justice report) that has been prepared by the 7 Govt. members of the Parliament special Select Committee based on the impeachment motion inquiry against the Chief justice (CJ) , as being not according to proper norms and procedure , the UNP had in a communiqué issued by it had stated it expects that the Committee report now forwarded shall be investigated again via an independent and impartial Committee. The notice issued by the Gen . secretary of the UNP today in response to the statement made by the President yesterday are full of contradictions . The Gen. secretary who said earlier that there was a loss of credibility in the committee that was appointed and it is invalid , now claims that the report of that invalid Committee be investigated before another independent Committee.

Obamacare: tea partiers say, nullify it; Democratic senator says, who cares if it's constitutional? By Eric Giunta An otherwise dry hour-long series of presentations on the federal health-care law ended on a colorful note Monday, as some three dozen tea-party activists, represented by a handful of speakers, took to the podium for an additional hour to present their concerns to Florida senators. The Florida Senate's Select Committee on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act ("Obamacare") launched its first meeting Monday, with Chairman Joe Negron, R-Palm City, assuring his fellow legislators and citizen attendees that no votes would be taken that day.

The Lone Star Republic -Don Gray, reporting from San Felipe de Austin, Texas, December 5, 1835 Texas forms the “Provisional Army of Texas” After consulting with some of the officers currently at the siege of Bexar, notably James W. Fannin and William B. Travis, the council chose to expand the army. Today they created a Corps of Permanent Volunteers, which would have a shorter enlistment period and more autonomy than the recently formed Provisional Army of Texas under the command of Sam Houston. This move to form the new Corp of Permanent Volunteers may well hinder Houston's efforts to fill his regular army; as most citizens will likely prefer to join the Permanent Volunteers. Houston has also been appointed to the Select Committee on Indian Affairs, as he had spent much of his career dealing with Indian nations. The Texans needed the support of the Indians (or at least their neutrality) to win our fight against Mexico. -Don Gray
MEDIA ALERT: BEWARE OF MISINFORMATION CAMPAIGN ON THE TRADITIONAL COURTS BILL To: News Editor and Political Reporters On 29 November a report was compiled by the Government Communication and Information System (GCIS) titled "Controversial Traditional Courts Bill Withdrawn", written by Dennis Cruywagen. The report erroneously states that “The controversial Traditional Courts Bill is to be withdrawn and will not be brought before Parliament any time soon. This was a unanimous decision taken at its last meeting of the year [28 November], by Parliament's Select Committee on Security and Constitutional Development.” The latest ANC Today Newsletter also misreports that the Bill has been withdrawn. Members of the Alliance for Rural Democracy were present at the Select Committee meeting, on 28 November, to which the false reports refer. We can confirm that the matter of the Bill’s withdrawal was neither discussed nor decided upon. The Bill has not been withdrawn and is currently being debated by the provinc ...
Rep. Brossett Asks Community to contribute to "Merry Christmas from the Big Easy to the Big Apple" NEW ORLEANS – State Representative Jared Brossett and St. Paul’s Homecoming Center (SPHC) are reaching out to bring Christmas cheer and much needed help to victims of Hurricane Sandy in Brooklyn, Coney Island, Staten Island, and the Jersey Shore. Rep. Brossett, Chairman of the Select Committee on Hurricane Recovery and board member of SPHC, is encouraging the community to help fill an 18-wheeler, with new or gently-used items, that will travel to the Bread of Life Church in Long Island, New York. "80% of District 97 was underwater due to Hurricane Katrina. As we continue to rebuild our community, it is important to remember those that aided us when we were in need, and assist those that have suffered from Superstorm Sandy.” Brossett said. “I am proud to be a part of this effort to bring children's toys, household items, and baby supplies to families, in time for the holidays.

The following letter, addressed to Senator John McCain, is a prime example of why Harry Reid is the Majority Leader in the United States Senate. What the GOP Senators and Representatives have been doing in the wake of the tragedy is shameful. This is how you tell them so and remain a statesman. If you read nothing else about Benghazi - read this. - I am writing in response to your suggestion that the Senate establish a Select Committee to investigate the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11, 2012. I refuse to allow the Senate to be used as a venue for baseless partisan attacks. Examining the events in Benghazi is an imperative of the utmost importance. As you know, several committees in both the I-louse and Senate have already committed to undertaking investigations and hearings, and the Obama Administration has already provided numerous briefings and more than 3,000 pages of documentation to committees as part of their reviews. In addition to the investigations currently underway in both ...

Sen. John McCain launched a fierce counterattack on Barack Obama yesterday after Obama arrogantly called McCain’s criticism of U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice “outrageous” and said critics of Rice should “go after me.” McCain, speaking on the Senate floor, went straight for the jugular: “This president — this administration — has either been guilty of colossal incompetence or been engaged in a coverup, neither of which is acceptable to the American people. I speak as a friend of Christopher Stevens, I speak as a person who knows something about warfare, I speak as something of an authority — that this attack could have been prevented if the information on the ground had been taken into consideration.” McCain wants a congressional Select Committee to investigate what happened in Benghazi and how the Obama Administration reacted. Paraphrasing Senator Howard Baker of Tennessee during the Watergate investigation, he said bluntly: There clearly is a need because there is a huge credibility gap a ...

R1.4bn allocated for upgrading ministerial mansions - Anchen Dreyer Anchen Dreyer 08 November 2012 DA MP says obscene sum allocated towards projects around four ministerial housing developments Answers needed on Mansions for Ministers Government's refusal to answer questions on the massive public expenditure on President Jacob Zuma's private home in Nkandla has raised a red flag with regard to all expenditure on luxury housing for South African ministers. Information provided to the Select Committee on Public Service indicates that more than R1.4 billion has been allocated to upgrades and building projects in and around four housing developments for Ministers, the Deputy President and the President (Bryntirion, Fernwood, Malhamba Ndlopfu and Groote Schuur). This level of expenditure on luxurious Mansions for Ministers is obscene when many South Africans continue to lack even the most basic services, such as running water, sanitation infrastructure and electricity.

The Commission's vice chair, Lee Hamilton, holds a variety of key advisory positions to the Bush administration, including in "the President's Homeland Security Advisory Council, the Secretary of Defense's National Security Study Group, and the CIA Economic Intelligence Advisory Panel." He also serves on an advisory board to the Association of the US Army.' Hamilton also has a background of whitewashing government investigations. As chairman of the Select Committee to Investigate Covert Arms Transactions with Iran, he was involved in limiting the damage to the Reagan administration from the Iran-Contra scandal-as Chossudovsky points out, he "failed to investigate the roles of other Reagan officials," especially President Reagan, Vice President Bush, Colin Powell, and Richard Armitage-the last two being members of the latest Bush administration.

In the last quarter, Ted Cruz had 3.3 Million dollars on hand, while Paul Sadler had just $478,000 in his campaign kitty. A reminder of Paul Sadler's background: Paul Sadler was a very successful lawyer long before he was elected to the Texas Legislature. He hails from the small East Texas town of Henderson (population 13,715), and he served in the Texas Legislature for 12 years, from 1991 to 2003. Sadler and his wife, Sherri, have five children, Erin, Brandon, Lee, Joel and Sam. A 1977 graduate of Baylor University, he went on to graduate from Baylor Law School in 1979. He is licensed to practice law before the U.S. Supreme Court and the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals. Paul Sadler served as chair of the House Public Education Committee, where he provided teacher pay raises for three consecutive sessions for the first time in Texas' history. And he passed the largest property tax cut in our history. Sadler also chaired the Select Committee on State Revenue and Public School Finance, and he later chaire ...

!n 1949, US Representative Clarence J. Brown (R-OHIO) jammed this poem into the congressional record at the end of a session of congress that year. He described it's author only as being "a prominent Democrat of the State of Georgia' A little background on Clarence J. Brown from Wikipedia... "Brown was elected as a Republican to the Seventy-sixth and the thirteen succeeding Congresses, serving from January 3, 1939 until his death in 1965. While in Congress, he was chairman of the Select Committee on Newsprint in the Eightieth Congress and was very close to Speaker Sam Rayburn of Texas. In the 1930s, Brown was a staunch isolationist and opposed Franklin D. Roosevelt's policies. When Harry S. Truman became president, he opposed Truman's Fair Deal. Brown co-sponsored legislation to create the Hoover Commission to study the Federal government and served on the commission, formally the Commission on the Organization of the Executive Branch of Government.

Balkis Accounts Scandal: Dr Khir is also alleged to have misused the various Selangor state agencies' funds for costly trips, family holidays, and personal gain. The new Pakatan Rakyat State Government has set up a Select Committee on Competence, Accountability and Transparency (Selcat) to probe the financial dealings of Balkis (the former Selangor Elected Representatives Wives Welfare Association), headed by Dr Khir’s wife, to see if there was any wrongdoing or criminal breach of trust in the charity organisation. In March 2009, the bosses of Permodalan Negeri Selangor Bhd (PNSB), Kumpulan Darul Ehsan Bhd (KDEB), Perbadanan Kemajuan Negeri Selangor (PKNS), and other state agencies testified at the Selcat hearing, disclosing some rather shocking misuse of public funds: RM1.7 million was paid for DisneyWorld and DisneyLand "technical" trips, organized by Balkis; RM200,000 for a Jogjakarta trip; air ticket payments for Dr Khir's maid to go on the trips; and instructions from Dr Khir to sponsor Balkis even ...
The House Finance Committee, Senate Finance Committee and the Select Committee on Property Tax Reform will hold a joint public hearing on today where the Commonwealth’s Independent Fiscal Office and the Pennsylvania Realtors Association will both present reports analyzing the Property Tax Independence Act (House Bill 1776/Senate Bill 1400). I believe this should be our focus on pressure calls to legislators. We have to get the bills out of Committee in order to get it on the floor for a vote. If we start making calls as soon as the hearing ends and continue to do so over the next two days we can provide enough pressure to get the bills on to the floor. I also believe we need to include Governor Corbett in these calls as well as house leadership (both parties). Explain to your legislators that you have been following these bills and you want these bills on the floor of the House and Senate for a vote. Copy this and email it to your friends. Ask them to help get this done. There are two phone numbers for ...
Colonies: Reports of the Select Committee on the Present State of New Zealand, etc v.1 (British Parliamentary Papers)
Former POW Deprives Families of Hope John McCain and John Kerry angered POW/MIA families and activists during the 1991-92 Senate Select Committee on POW and MIA Affairs. Kerry was co-chairman and McCain was a committee member. The Select Committee was tasked with resolving the lingering POW/MIA issue by either gaining the release of American prisoners of war believed to be alive under the control of Hanoi, or explaining what happened to the missing prisoners. They opted for the latter. At the time, POW/MIA families were outraged by the tactics of both McCain and Kerry. In all likelihood, there was a reason for forcing the families to abandon hope. Ted Sampley says that in hindsight, "it is obvious that McCain and Kerry were more interested in using the Select Committee as a means to justify lifting the U.S. imposed trade embargo against Vietnam than resolving the issue of missing U.S. servicemen." McCain went to a lot of effort to say that no POWs could be alive. But years after the war was officially ove ...

Jack Ruby had Mafia connections in Chicago, New Orleans and Dallas. The Chicago mob made numerous death threats to Kennedy. There were lots of CIA operatives at Dealey Plaza Nov 23. A CIA pilot said he flew one of the mobsters to Dallas the morning of the assasination. One of the them shoots Kennedy from behind the picket fence on the grassy knoll. House Select Committee proved with acoustic test there was a shot from the grassy knoll. Mobster Roselli confessed to killing Kennedy and said there were 4 men on the hit team. Three of the mobsters were scheduled to testify before Congress, all three were killed just prior to their testimony dates. Joe Granata, a mobster who became an informant, verified the involvement of the 4 (Roseli, Nicoleti, Caifano and Sutton). Hoffa and mobster Sheeran testifed they supplied high-powered rifles for the hit. There were fake cops used and they were supposed to kill Oswald but Ruby bungled it. The book says there were two aims of the assasination: One to kill JF ...

Wendy Matthews ( ANZMES committee member) and Doctor Ros Vallings ( ANZMES Medical adviser)met with the Parliamentary select committee on September 20th. They got an excellent reception and were asked a lot of questions. Ros said they couldn’t have asked for a greater group of MPs as they made them feel very welcomed, relaxed and at home. There was a very positive feedback from the select committee. They had half an hour instead of the 20 minutes they were initially given. The petition etc is now going back to the Ministry of Health for their recommendations and then back to the select committee. Wendy said we can be cautiously optimistic. Thanks again to ANZMES for funding their flights to Wellington from Auckland and for Wendy and Ros for agreeing to talk to the select committee on our behalf.

This woman is on the House Permanet Select Committee on Intelligence! She is on the subcommittee for Technical & Tactical Intelligence!! I wonder if someone is feeding her this crap she spouts to see what she would do with it?
Doesn’t this read like a “cover up” about the assassination of President Kennedy… that J. E. Hoover was allowed to stay on as chief of the FBI “for life” after he met with the new President Johnson? Why else would LBJ do it unless Hoover had the truth of Kennedy’s assassination? Read on… Hoover personally directed the FBI investigation into the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. In 1964, just days before Hoover testified in the earliest stages of the Warren Commission hearings, President Lyndon B. Johnson waived the then-mandatory U.S. Government Service Retirement Age of seventy, allowing Hoover to remain the FBI Director "for life." The House Select Committee on Assassinations issued a report in 1979 critical of the performance by the FBI, the Warren Commission, and other agencies. The report also criticized what it characterized as the FBI's reluctance to thoroughly investigate the possibility of a conspiracy to assassinate the President.[ In closing, many companies got rich wh ...
Taxpayer Protection PledgeAs of late 2011, 238 of 242 House Republicans and 41 out of 47 Senate Republicans had signed ATR's "Taxpayer Protection Pledge", in which the pledger promises to "oppose any and all efforts to increase the marginal income tax rate for individuals and business; and to oppose any net reduction or elimination of deductions and credits, unless matched dollar for dollar by further reducing tax rates." In November 2011, Senate Majority leader Harry Reid (D-NV) blamed Norquist's influence for the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction's lack of progress, claiming that Congressional Republicans "are being led like puppets by Grover Norquist. They’re giving speeches that we should compromise on our deficit, but never do they compromise on Grover Norquist. He is their leader." Since Norquist's pledge binds signatories to opposing deficit reduction agreements that include any element of increased tax revenue, some Republican deficit hawks now retired from office have state ...

Legislation: Critics slam Traditional Courts Bill despite changes The controversial Traditional Courts Bill is manifestly unconstitutional and should be withdrawn from Parliament and rewritten, a range of civil society and legal organisations have insisted in public hearings before the Select Committee on Security, says a Business Day report. Recent condemnation of the Bill was repeated yesterday in hearings before the select committee of the National Council of Provinces. The Bill is deemed unconstitutional because it creates a different system of justice for rural people. It also disallows legal representation in the courts which is in conflict with the constitutional provision allowing all to have legal representation. Justice Minister Jeff Radebe recently intimated that the Bill could be withdrawn following stinging criticism from Women, Children and People with Disabilities Minister Lulu Xingwana. That position now appears to have been reversed with the committee being told the problems with the Bill ...

I ask you Mr. Romney why would you want Senator McCain to campain for you regarding VETERANS. When on January 4, 2007 he along with President Bush and other Republicans opposed the following bill as providing overly generous benefits to U.S. Soldiers. Sen. Jim Webb (D-VA), along with Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-NE) introduced S.22, The Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act, Which aimed at restoring U.S. veteran's educational benefits back to the level of those granted to World War II soldiers. When the bill was passed on May 15, 2008 Sen. McCain was absent and did not cast a vote on the new GI Bill due to campaining for his run as President. On November 3, 2011 Sen.

I was just reading the committees that our Idaho Senator Risch is on. Select Committee on Intelligence The Select Committee on Intelligence oversees intelligence activities and programs of the U.S. government. The committee is made up of two members of the Appropriations, Armed Services, Foreign Relations and Judiciary committees and seven members of the general body. Its primary duties are to ensure that intelligence activities are in line with the Constitution and U.S. law, and to assure the appropriate government departments and agencies communicate intelligence information in a complete and timely fashion to the President and Congress. Committee on Foreign Relations The Committee on Foreign Relations is one of the oldest committees in the Senate, tracing its roots back to 1816.

Another sign of the apocalypse, Michele Bachmann is on the House Select Committee of Intelligence.

Back to school night take 2- Amanda's turn tonight. Exhausting. Went to sign up for committee for high school redistricting for new school. Find out they draw names from a box in order to select committee. Seriously my kids future can be decided by someone who was picked not for their qualifications or even their convictions but rather cause their name was drawn from a box! Seriously.
Douglas Mwonzora The Fallacy of the National The Fallacy Fallacy of The National Report ( by Douglas Togaraseyi Mwonzora ) After dismally failing to convince all right thinking Zimbabweans to back its unilaterally but badly crafted draft constitution, Zanu Pf has turned its machinery into demanding a national report. By definition a national report is a record of everything that happens in a process. That means in the case of Copac the national report must record among other things, what happened at the First Stakeholders Conference, the public outreach, the drafting stage and what will happen or be resolved at the Second All Stakeholders Conference. While the other processes have now taken place, the crucial Second All Stakeholders Conference has not yet taken place. Any purported publication of the national report at this stage means that from the report will be missing this crucial information. By its very nature the Second All Stakeholders Conference can make far reaching changes to the draft. This th ...
Is it true that you're leaving the DCMS Select Committee?!
The Select Committee on Education and Recreation has criticised government over the lack of progress regarding the Accelerated Schools Infrastructure Delivery Intiative, which is aimed at getting rid of mud or inappropriate schools. The Department of Basic Education appeared before the committee yesterday and declared 496 schools countrywide as inappropriate schools, as they lack water, electricity and sanitation. These schools are usually referred to as mud schools. The committee says the non-delivery of appropriate schools creates the impression that the department does not take education seriously. On our phone topic today, what do you make of this?

I wrote to Senator Marco Rubio and was very disappointed with his reply. He wrote: "As a member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, I have not seen or heard anything that supports the letter's contents." This was in regards to the letter written by Michelle Bachmann and 4 other Representatives. I'm glad he wasn't the pick for VP!
