Citizen's Juries - Gordon Brown's biggest waste of money to date.

Money down the drain citizen's juries
I write this short piece on the subject of citizens juries while suppressing the urge to wail and gnash my teeth. Not only have these Juries been called a farce, they have also been the subject of some wonder at the reason for the jury members receiving brown envelopes full of cash. Could it be symbolic that the envelopes are brown?

But believe it or not, that is not the worst of it. Yesterday in what should have been a massive embarrassment to the government, the Junior schools minister told the shadow commons leader, Theresa May, that his department had spent £500,000 on five juries. How the hell this can be justified I've no idea. No doubt the junior minister was glad he gave Theresa the bad news in a written reply. I don't think he could have done it in person without wanting the earth to open up.

This is without question one of the most incompetent wastes of our taxes that I have had the misfortune to come across. What kind of halfwit thought they could justify spending that kind of money? These Juries aren't even binding on the government. If Gordon Brown doesn't like the juries verdict, he can just ignore it!

This needs to be stopped before even more of our money is flushed away.
