Some novel thinking from Australia

The head of the New South Wales Liberals has come up with an intriguing idea - performance related pay for ministers:

"Mr Debnam today announced that wages would be linked to ministerial performance if he wins the state election in March next year. Coalition ministers would receive their backbench salary, but 50 per cent of their ministerial allowance would be withheld until the end of the financial year, he said. Ministers would then receive all or some of the withheld component of their ministerial salary depending on the outcomes they achieved in their portfolio".

The idea got monstered by the current Labor (sic) administration in NSW, and I'm not all convinced that achievement / non achievement by ministers is measurable in a way that is transparent and equitable. However, turning to home - I give you John Prescott.....

Pietro, old bean - I'm working on it. If you click on post new comment it shows who has posted what. It is annoying me too, for what that's worth.

Seconded, Mr. Hitchens. And bollocks to Oz as well.
Although I think it would be churlish not to credit Prezza for his part in the revival of Tory fortunes. I for one am grateful that the great, ignorant lump is still in office. Long may he remain DPM. He's doing wonders for us in southern marginals....

The Sunday Times is reporting that Prescott won't necessarily go before or at the same time as Blair, which has the scope to make for much entertainment....
