Another mess for the Boy Miliband to sort out

Whilst farmers in England have been growing more and more desperate as the government fails to honour its promises by paying them on time, or even close to time the staff responsible for sorting out the payments seem to have had other matters on their minds...

BBC NEWS | England | Tyne | Probe into 'naked civil servants'

Civil servants on Tyneside are under investigation amid allegations staff romped around naked in offices and had sex in toilets.
One person at the Rural Payments Agency (RPA) in Newcastle has been sacked after officials began an investigation.
The antics emerged after some members of staff were caught on CCTV cameras.
The RPA is part of the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs and administers millions of pounds in agricultural payments to farmers.
The agency said it was investigating claims that staff leapt naked from filing cabinets, had sex in office toilets, held break-dancing competitions during working hours and fought in a reception area.

Thank god it wasn't John Prescott in charge otherwise it would have been worse!


In a way this is funny, unless you are a farmer that is. You see this is unlike normal government cock ups this is a Prescott style cock up. A much better excuse for government ineptitude.

Makes you want a job in central government.
