Surprise! Businessmen encouraging cuts are Tory chums, donors and beneficiaries

What’s the difference between 35 and 33? The 33 didn’t dig their own hole.

Now let’s see what we’ve been able to cobble together from a completely random late night internet search about the hypocrisy levels of the 35 business people who signed the letter calling for swift, savage cuts:

1 Ian Livingston, CEO, BT Group
Oh look, BT has just had its government contracts renewed after talks with Francis Maude.

Oh, and they’ve just signed off a deal with Lancashire County Council to do government work which must also be, according to Ian Livingston and pals, some kind of redeployment of people to more productive. That’s in addition to the deal with Liverpool City Council, in which investigations suggest they rip off the council to the tune of millions a year. Oh, and the deal with Essex County Council, which the council terminated early because of BT’s performance, leading to BT pursuing legal action.

2 Nick Prest, Chairman, AVEVA
Aveva? They’re not the suppliers to Babcocks, who are building the 2 new aircraft carriers from government expenditure, are they? Oh yes, they are.

3 John Nelson, Chairman, Hammerson
Would you credit it? Hammerson avoids Corporation Tax (see here on how to).

4 Nick Leslau, Chairman, Prestbury Group
They know a thing or two about tax contributions as well. Just ask the Channel Islands Stock Exchange. It looks like a few companies who have recently been renegotiating contracts with the government have also been willing to add their name to the Telegraph letter

5 Gordon Frazer, Managing Director, Microsoft UK
Microsoft will be ok with the cuts. They’ve just signed off a new contract to profit from government expenditure. Francis Maude should know. He signed the contracts.

There isn’t much of a precedent for the government’s recent contract renegotiations. But how transparent and accountable are the negotiations?
Maude Summons Bosses To Whitehall Cuts Summit

6 Aidan Heavey, Chief Executive, Tullow Oil
This is what Tullow Oil get up to in Uganda when they’re not busy demanding huge cuts in the UK. Well, charity begins at home.

7 Andrew Sukawaty, Chairman and CEO, Inmarsat
Inmarsat , specialists in government satellite communications, will be hosting a civil service efficiency conference with a guest speaker/ Oh look, it’s Francis Maude again.

8 Philip Dilley, Chairman, Arup
Oh, he’s very helpful. He’s joined the PM’s Business Advisory Group.

9 Moni Varma, Chairman, Veetee
At least, Moni’s honest. He admits Conservative HQ got him to sign the letter. Bet he regrets it now.

10 Ruby McGregor-Smith, CEO, MITIE Group
And finally (for now) here’s Ruby, in her annual report to investors, on how the private sector will “ensure the redeployment of people to more productive activities will improve economic performance, so generating more employment opportunities”:

The public sector faces the prospect of considerable pressure on expenditure in the coming years. We believe that this will create significant opportunities for the outsourcing market as contracts will tend to become larger and broader in scope.

We anticipate higher levels of tender activity to result in the medium term. Whilst this may not have any material effect on our anticipated performance during the current year, we believe that in subsequent years we will benefit from the efficiency agenda that is expected to impact central and local government.

So Ms McGregor-Smith will in fact be employing people to do government jobs, using public money, but on lesser terms and conditions.
In what way is that “redeployment of people to more productive activities”, exactly?

erm … isn’t this rather closer to an argument that these are selfless individuals arguing for the greater good even though it would hurt their own interests? Although cuts in government expenditures will hurt the businesses they run, they still recommend cutting.

Although cuts in government expenditures will hurt the businesses they run,

Really? And how did you come to the conclusion that a government hell bent on outsourcing more to big corporate friends is planning to hurt them?

Luis

Highlighting the signing off of government contracts just before major cuts announcements is supposed to highlight how they’re being protected. Of course contracts will differ but if they’re over a signficant period – and most of them will be – it’s a guarantee of public expenditure coming their way that others don’t get. So for example (not from this list here) Serco have a 15 year contract with my local council, inflation proofed, and untouchable in terms of their income irrespective of how far the rest of the council is ‘downsized’ (12% staff loss in last year, and that’s before the big cuts).

We;re not claiming huge rigour with the trawl here – it’s just intended as a quick snapshot of the way the big companies are making hay while other more vulnerable sectors e.g small business, charities are lined up for cuts.

Sunny,

I would not be at all surprised if the government give lucrative deals to businesses run by their chums, and yes some parts of government might try to find savings by outsourcing (although it is often claimed outsourcing does not save money).

At the same time, some of these companies are going to find the public sector canceling or reducing projects, and generally being a bit less free throwing money about. I think you have pointed out that public spending cuts will see job losses among private sector companies that are contractors to the govt. Some of these examples (BT, Microsoft) looked like that to me. If I could edit my first comment, I’d add “some” – not all of these look like examples of hypocrisy.

Fair enough. I hope corruption in this country hasn’t gotten so bad the companies are protected and given favourable contracts just before the cuts, simply because their bosses is a Tory supporter. But who knows.

on an unrelated point, I hope that councils like that you mention stuck with non-renegotiable contract with Serco are going to get a bit smarter about contracting (although I suppose in theory they could have got a discount for going non-renegotiable)

Fair enough. I hope corruption in this country hasn’t gotten so bad the companies are protected and given favourable contracts just before the cuts, simply because their bosses is a Tory supporter. But who knows.

“To state the first in its proper form, is to refute it” as some chap once said about something.

Umm, a REIT (Hammerson) isn’t quite “dodging corporation tax”. It’s a deliberate structure put in place (quite recently too) by Parliament to prevent the *double* taxation of profits from (usually) commercial property.

Don’t forget, corporation tax is really only paid upon retained profits. Profits which are paid out as dividends, well, the people who receive the dividends get taxed upon that (it is more complex than this, as G Brown’s system was that the dividends do pay corporation tax, but then this is counted as if the recipeints of the dividends have already paid tax on them. But the effect is the same, the recipients pay tax on the dividends).

A REIT must pay out at least 90% of profits as dividends. So instead of getting all complicated with paying corporation tax then having the dividends deemed as being received tax paid, simply pay out (nearly) all of the profits as dividends and get the investors to pay tax on what they receive.

It’s tax simplification rather than tax dodging (and the major benefit of such a system is that pension funds cannot claim back the corporation tax paid on dividends any more. But they can end up not paying income tax on the dividends they receive from REITs. If any9one at all is tax dodging it’s pension funds.)

Although cuts in government expenditures will hurt the businesses they run

Really? And how did you come to the conclusion that a government hell bent on outsourcing more to big corporate friends is planning to hurt them?

By giving them less net work than they otherwise would?

Isn’t this what people have been arguing around these parts? That the coalition’s cuts will hurt the private sector too?

This is my point from the other thread about “oh we can’t trust these rich people”: there’s no depth (or consistency, sometimes) to such OPs. Paul says himself that “We;re not claiming huge rigour with the trawl here”. O RLY?

BT’s contracts with the public sector are really important to both. I doubt BT will be unaffected by the cuts. Are the cuts a net benefit to BT? The implict claim is that they are but there is no evidence.

Incidentally, according to the article cited, “its government contracts renewed” should read “its central government contracts renewed”. I vaguely recall some issues with its NHS contract(s).

My underlying and wider point is that these snarks are all very well for preaching to the choir but you also have to convince people outside the congregation.

People who can be expected to support Tory policies write a letter supporting Tory policies.

Well, consider my gast to be well and truly flabbered.

Next you’ll reveal the shocking discovery that union activists would support Labour policies, or that treehuggers are rather fond of the Green Party.

I’m so…so…on this article. On the other hand if this (link) is true then I’m surprised the old Parliamentary Labour Party are not being charged with ‘offences against the people’ or something similar ?

http://www.taxpayersalliance.com/realdebt.pdf

So the tories are in the pockets of these scummy corporations yea?

Caviar and Champagne in at number 10. Oh the shame, oh the shame. Where is Nick Robinson and all the other tory arse lickers who love to come on my TV and tell me that Labour is owned by the unions? Funny, I don’t see them telling the public that NEXT is running the govt.

Same old sleazy tories.

Boycott all these corporations.

@ 11 Sally

Should we not be discussing how this debt can be dealt with ? Your literary tantrums are highly entertaining but are you a serious contributor or just a rude person to anyone who does not support your views ? Now have go at making a real effort to avoid being rude.

@Tim Worstall…that sounds like the marx bros contract skit..” ‘the party of the first part will…” sounds gibbersish but then thats the finance industry for yer..its in its own language setup to baffle anyone outside of it..
fact is this..these people are crooks and what is going on is THEFT..basically..the unregulated banks pissed our money away,,govt bailed them out with our money and got into debt…so now we are paying of that debt to er the banks who got us into debt in the first place..perfect logic ….the other point is this, these conniving bastards contribute f*** all to the rest of society, the offshore tax havens, the bungs, the lobbying cash bungs etc to line their own pockets helping these companies and ceo’s line their own pockets..whilst we, joe public are expected to cough up what litle we have..and to end up dumped on scrap heap and forced to work for pittance, thus lining their pockets all the more..what gets my goat is the right wing rant that you hear in the USA ‘keep govt out of business- well keep business out of govt would make more sense…..

12 shorter Ted troll…………………Oh please, please don’t point out that the tories are lying sacks of shit who take money from large corporations in exchange for doing what the rich want. Instead lets have a mealy mouthed debate.

Last week we had a troll infestation on here about how the Labour party was now controlled by the Unions because Ed won the election for leader. Now we see who really runs the tory party, and it is the same corporate whores that have always run the tory party. The letter to the Telegraph is a tory stunt by tory backers, and people should boycott their companies.

Surprise! The people campaigning against the cuts all have very cushy non-jobs in the state sector.

@ 15

Absolutely, now it’s their turn to join the rest of us in the real world.
Most will fail and they know it.

Grrr, let’s campaign! (Effectively). Here are my suggestions of how – – http://politicaldynamite.com/2010/10/do-campaigns-really-need-smart-objectives/

Love to see the right wingers revelling in the personal tragedy of 490,000 people as if they ‘deserved’ it. And Ted, best of all, wishes to condemn those who are made redundant to fail.

Nice

@ 18

Very few will be made redundant on a compulsory basis. Most will be offered it on a voluntary basis. Many will also be offered attractive re-location terms.

Additionally, retraining programmes are extensive high quality and nationally recognised. Then natural wastage will play a big part where establishment roles are to change.

You will be quite surprised at how successful their ‘change management’ procedures will pan out.

doncha just luv these people with their ‘considered’ opinion..i found this on the site with the ‘adam smith identifies £90 billion of privatisation possiblities’ complete with PDF doc too!..

here goes:
1 The work of the police could be contracted out to private companies.

The Crown Estate, Historic Royal Palaces and Royal Parks sold (bad idea though, might end up in the Tower…..if that wasn’t sold as well).

The army could be partially broken into PMC’s (bad idea though, might launch a coup).

Government buildings sold to private companies then leased back for a smaller sum than it costs the department to keep the building then through economies of scale, increased productivity and witchcraft private companies find savings.

Some road networks could be sold of such as happened to two-thirds of roads in Sweden.

then theres this:

Alan Peters said…

Privatise everything that’s not nailed down, even if it is nailed down still sell it. The state should own NOTHING.

(silly me i though WE owned it)

and this:

Steve Tierney said in reply to Red Rag…

As I’m sure you are aware it has naff all to do with friends making a fortune and everything to do with the fact that private enterprise, competition and free trade help everyone – while state ownership, huge bureaucracy and authoritarian control are vampiric.

and this gem:

It doesn’t add up… said…

How about public sector housing? There really is little logic in the public sector owning house

finally this:

Cortez said in reply to Bruce…

So, because you can’t cut all of the debt, you shouldn’t cut any of it? It’s that kind of thinking which got us into this mess in the first place.

Cutting debt by twelve per cent by selling off a few things which the government does not need to own or has no business owning – Channel 4 and the Tote say hi – is a damned good start

so as you can clearly see WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER – NOT.

Hello, I normally do not make many comments via the INTERNET but feel that i do need to at this time.
What i see in the UK is frightening as we all approach Christmas with dread as i will be made unemployed in March 2011 due to government cuts in the RAF.
What will i do to keep my home and my family as i do not know anyone who wants to employ me due to the very nature of my specialist work for the RAF.
I will be joining demonstrations if i can as i now feel this nation is on the brink of an internal civil war and i am being put on the sacrificial alter of the conservative party and the poodle Clegg.
Strange that i am now in this position but i know of some men who did not cope well and i have seen family’s broken up and even some children going into care as they struggled to make ends meet, I hope i never get to that level as i will seek an early exit .
Take care of your family’s as i feel the wind of change will simply sweep many away in the name of ideology.

@Ted what rose tinted specs you have..relocated..er anyone want that? living miles away from yer family..relocated to where? nice view..green parks..doubt it -more than likely chav city…and do you belive these nice re trainers actually give a rats about the ppl they’ll ‘train’ no way..take the money and sod off to some tax have,, the couurses wil be dead end jobs if that…can anyone wanting to go on a course to learn shelf filling?..jeez…in the 80s there were lots of scams like this exposed..its a cheap way to pass dosh onto mates whilst pretending to look as they ‘care’ and helping employment..utter utter bolex…its the skills we will lose..and,,whos gonna do the jobs thats just been shut down..er could it be ..could it be the private sector..yeah of course..welcome to lo skill lo pay britain..

Well just as long as the Lie Dems are happy with this shit then all is right with the world. Clegg gets to play deputy Prime Pollock, and Vince Cable gets to play The Incredible shrinking man.

@ 22

Most private industry employees don’t get the option of relocation with all expenses paid. They can also relocate their families. Priority number 1 is – keep the job.

Each time redundancy came my way, I made myself look at it as an opportunity. Granted, that wasn’t always successful but it’s a damn site better than your defeatist attitude. Old saying, “if it doesn’t kill us, it makes us stronger”

@ Martin Bond my heart goes out to you..my dad who died not so long ago was in RAF in WW2 ..i think martin yoiu’ve got it dead on there mate..civil war? who knows but nothing about this crap feels right or makes sense..what we have here nartim is nothing less than GRAND THEFT by a herachy who see themselves as oh so superior…look they dreamed up an ‘ermergency budget’ and neo con ideology whereby democracy goes on the back burner..they pushh through a grand plan of sytematic robbery ….then use the flimsy excuse of ‘its not our fault its labour” well its the banks fault..the dregulation made it possible for banks to piss our money away then went broke so govt had to bail them out after all how do you get yer wages? so here we are crippling cutting jobs to repay er the banks who caused the mess in first place…the govt are from eton so have never had it tough..the offshore tax havens..companies queuing up to get govt contracts to grab more cash,,quangos that protect the public scrapped but quangos that support business and give out doshto them still in place..adam smith guys offer up list of public companies that should be sold off to make money for who? us? nope..we’re still living the thatcher legacy .now they’re back to finish the job…we’re all in trouble unless you went to eton and called osbourne or cameron…as for clegg…utter utter traitor…
yep theres gonna be lots of unrest soon…

@martin

Christmas is coming…and Osborne is working flat-out to give tens of thousands of civil servants and their families a special Christmas they will never forget http://www.guardian.co.uk/society/2010/oct/15/civil-service-job-cuts-fast-tracked

I’m sure they deserve it though, parasites that they are piggybacking on the hard work of…erm…the Government’s private sector contractors like Serco and Mitie who use taxpayers money to do public sector work in a wealth creating way due to the magic that happens from outsourcing publicly-financed activities.

@Ted it has bugger all to do with employment ..its to do with THEFT..on a grand scale…you say pvt sector doesnt cough up for ‘luxury relocation’ dont say much for them does it?..after all it saves money and hey! why not get the tax payer to fund it..so where you gonna relocate to? towns with closed shops deserted high streets because no one has any spending money huh? because theyve been given the bullet..’opportunities’..to do what? flip burgers..jeez our graduates cant even get a decent job let alone ppl whos been in work for years..christ you sound like alf garnet with his working class tory ethics about ‘knowing your place in society’ ie tugging your forlock and say yes sir..not everyone can relocate, and familes? haha when the tories have just trumpeted their ‘home for life’ end of..to be replaced with ‘home swap loony idea..yes im sure someone will give up their nice little house to live in scum city ..i dont think…do you honesly believe these relocated ppl ..are gonna be paid what they earned before? of course not..after al its ‘THEIR’ fault we are in shtuk isnt it..hows it go in ‘the sun’ ‘overpaid penpushers’…yeah right..more like darftsmen and skilled people – more skills lost to favour the service sector..
btw is your name norman tebbit ted? i think your bike needs oiling..

These private corporates who scrounge off the state and then write letters to tory rags defending the cuts are lying scum. They are the real scroungers. Those people running those firms who are paying themselves millions are nothing short of welfare scroungers of the worst kind.

They suck on the tit of govt sucking and slurping giant loads of tax payers money and then demand cuts to the poor. They are thge Marie Antoinette of the modern world, and if there is any justice they will go the same way as those French aristocrats.

This is not fair and we are certainly not in this together.

@Sally well said..

Couldn’t agree more, Sally.

Deep down you’re a libertarian.

@ pagar or a librarian

@ pagar thers a world of differnce between ‘benefit scrounger’ and these lot..a ‘bs’ is only on about £80 pw they pay tax oddly enough..buy cheap food thus keeping small shops and staff in employent..and in a way contribute to society..whereas the snouts in tough companies pay shit wages to workers .work them hard make them ill..pay no taxes..buy expensive crap and couldnt give a toss about small shops-sooner knock then down and replaces with ‘luxury apartments’ ie ugle as shit buildings,,riddled with health and safety problems..so not quite in the same league..

Martin @21: I’ve simply cut and pasted your comment to http://tinyurl.com/3xd98xo to give it prominence.

@24

The best trick the right have ever played is using their grip on the media to instill in private sector workers a desire for public sector workers to have to put up with the same, usually lousier, conditions they do. Why the hell said people don’t do a little bit of lateral thinking and instead demand better from their employers – bringing themselves up to the same standards rather than hoping to drag others down – is something that really depresses me sometimes.

One thing is for certain the libs will get the blame for these cuts because of the support Clegg has given the con man (Cameron) We once had three main parties to vote for but sadley that is now not the case.

36. Alison Charlton

One of the signatories – Tim Steiner – co-founded Ocado with fellow ex-Goldman Sachs bond trader, Jason Gissing. Nothing wrong with that. But it is interesting that Jason Gissing was a fellow member of the Bullingdon club with Osborne and Cameron.

Osborne known as ‘Oik’ in the club, as he only went to St. Pauls – not Eton or Harrow.
Marina Hyde article from the Guardian gives good view on Osborne and Bullingdon: http://t.co/KUFSDjc

when i see the coalition..i cant hlping thinking of the famous cleese,barker,corbet sketch about class…watch the clip and just think Cameron CLegg and us miserable lot at the end..
