Probation service: Offender supervision to be renationalised - BBC News
The supervision of all offenders on probation in England and Wales is being put back in the public sector after a series of failings with the part-privatisation of the system.

It reverses changes made in 2014 by then Justice Secretary Chris Grayling. The National Audit Office said problems with the part-privatisation had cost taxpayers nearly £500m.

Student loans 'heading for trillion pounds' - BBC News
The conversion of means-tested grants into loans has meant that the poorest students end up graduating with the biggest debts, says Lord Forsyth.

And he warns that the current repayment system was more expensive for people in middle income jobs such as nursing, rather than high-paid lawyers or financiers, who would pay off their debts more quickly.

"The people who get screwed by this are those in the middling jobs," says Lord Forsyth.

"This was all done on the basis that it would create a market in higher education - and that has failed, there isn't a market."

Lord Forsyth says that there is no meaningful consumer choice or competition - and he dismissed the system for rating teaching quality in universities, the teaching excellence framework, as a "bit of a joke".

"Because no-one ever turns up to look at the teaching," says Lord Forsyth.

“In 2015 the government started hacking and slashing at all manner of green policies. This has stopped, and that’s very welcome,” he said.

Richard Black, the director of the Energy and Climate Intelligence Unit thinktank, echoed that view. He said the strategy showed a “sea change” in “top-line thinking about the low carbon economy”, with Theresa May’s government seeing it as an opportunity rather than a cost as it was viewed under David Cameron.

No one can save the Tories | British politics | For Europe, Against the EU | Politics | spiked
The talk of May doing a Michael Howard, the nadir of the Tories previous electoral irrelevance who allowed the space for the Cameroons to emerge, misses the point. PR man Cameron may have been a hollow technocrat, but at least he at least had a strategy: turning the Conservatives into New Labour. The Tories now have neither a play nor principle in mind. Everywhere you look you see a party bereft of vision. [...] The last few weeks of broadsheet tittle-tattle and political melodrama has only confirmed that the Tory Party has no idea what it stands for or who it represents. It’s a relic of the last century, a zombie party. Theresa May, the ‘dead woman walking’ in No10, is precisely the kind of leader it deserves. &! http://www.spiked-online.com/newsite/article/may-the-leader-the-technocrat-party-deserves/20392#.WdwbJ1uPJPU &! http://www.spiked-online.com/newsite/article/whats-the-point-of-the-tories/20384#.WdwbI1uPJPU

Driving students away from nursing is a spectacular act of political self-harm | Polly Toynbee | Opinion | The Guardian
With 40,000 nursing vacancies unfilled, the news that training applications are down by 23% is disastrous for the NHS [...] It reckons that in all over the past 10 years, 400,000 people who would have studied part-time in higher education have been deterred from doing so. [... can really re-pay the fees working for nurse salary + the jobs commitment ... + working 50% of their time training! ] [...] Janet Davies, head of the Royal College of Nursing, warns that nurses’ attitudes will alter once they are paying heftily for their training: “They will demand better clinical placements and their relationship with the NHS will change: carrying a heavy debt to get qualified, they will feel less obligation to work in the NHS.” The government promised that imposing fees on trainee nurses would see an increase of 10,000 new training places; none have been provided.

Yes this really is the end of Tory austerity – because it was never about economics in the first place | The Independent
[private sector will pick up the tap - the households did, but not corporations! bc long-term ROI growth in not attractive in the west w secular stagnation! see Richard Koo ] But it was a very long time coming. It became clear within a year of George Osborne’s 2010 “emergency budget”, which forced through huge cuts in capital budgets and an intense squeeze on Whitehall departments and welfare spending, that the austerity medicine was hurting, not helping.

The economy was flatlining, teetering on the verge of recession. Whether this was primarily due to the crisis in the neighbouring eurozone and a spike in global oil prices or because the negative knock-on impact of the government’s domestic spending cuts was bigger than initially thought is still debated by economists.

Schools told not to plan for budget deficits - BBC News
Schools have been told that they "must" avoid planning to go into budget deficits.
The warning comes in a letter from the finance director at the Department of Education (DE), Gary Fair.
It is in response to a move from more than 40 head teachers in greater Belfast who said they would refuse to implement more cuts to their budgets.
They said they would not take measures like laying off staff to save money, even if it pushed them into the red.

Breast surgeon Ian Paterson inquiry pledge from Tories - BBC News

[...] The Heart of England NHS Trust has paid out almost £18m in damages and legal costs to hundreds of his former patients. These cases did not form part of the criminal proceedings.

One option – popular in the last couple of years – has been to borrow from the Treasury-run Public Works Loan Board (PWLB) at very low rates of interest and then use the money to invest in commercial property ventures that offer returns of as much as 8%.

Osborne’s huge tax giveaway starts for rich – as the poor are hit | Politics | The Guardian
The richest will reap 80% of the rewards from the tax and benefit changes that start to come into effect this week, while the poorest will become worse off, according to detailed analysis by the Resolution Foundation.

The independent thinktank’s research shows that the effect of £2bn of income tax cuts and more than £1bn of welfare cuts will add up to a huge transfer of wealth from low- and middle-income households to richer ones.

[...] many of those who voted for Brexit will either be dead or in care homes that millennials will be subsidising, probably in a deregulated, privatised environment in thrall to US corporate interests and hostile to workers’ rights. That’s if care homes even exist.

Where did all the GCSE pupils go – and why has no one noticed? | Education | The Guardian
[ underachieving taking pupils off roll to boost class/school rating! League Table. unintended consequences! macro over micro + staff shortage, pressure, not money, less money! making the short cut to let underachievers and trouble makers go. classic american school dropout. in childhood already left behind! ] Earlier this month, Sean Harford, Ofsted’s national director, said that from now on inspectors should question headteachers during inspections when large numbers of students have left. And Amanda Spielman, the chief inspector, described “off-rolling”, alongside other results-boosting methods, as a scandal.

Our investigation shows that even though the inspectorate recognised this as a national problem going back to 2010, it has not done anything about it.

The research organisation Education Datalab recently published reports on pupils leaving their secondary schools, following an investigation by Education Guardian in 2014. It raised concerns that 20,000 pupils were being lost to state education altogether, with no one knowing where they had gone. The reports do not show whether pupils were encouraged to move or left of their own volition. Those who had disappeared were mostly lower achievers.

The number of EU nationals registering as nurses in England has dropped by 92% since the Brexit referendum in June, and a record number are quitting the NHS, it can be revealed. [...] The haemorrhaging of foreign staff is being blamed by the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) on the failure of the government to provide EU nationals in the UK with any security about their future. May has claimed that Britain cannot act unilaterally to guarantee residency as it would weaken her hand in the coming article 50 negotiations over Brexit.

Janet Davies, chief executive and general secretary of the RCN, said the government’s tactic was backfiring, and now threatened the sustainability of the health service.

How the sports industry inspired us to become less active
Sport’s obsession with being “inspirational” is a hindrance to public-health interventions, not a help. We need to be cajoling, entreating, even tricking people into activity. While some will want to go to the “next level” or “just do it ”, others might be quite happy to wander around their own level, or “just about do it”. We need to ask people to dance and invite them to play. It is clear enough from comparable countries such as Finland and Denmark that the precondition for an active and healthy nation is getting more people moving about by walking, cycling and, where conditions allow, skateboarding, skiing and skating. For a fraction of the cost of the HS2 rail link and, I suspect, with much greater social and economic benefits, we could make a significant start on this.

NHS at breaking point, according to British Medical Association | Society | The Guardian
“The data demonstrates the increasing pressures on the system. It provides evidence of the underlying cracks within the NHS, such as funding constraints, changes and increases in demand, disjointed care and workforce pressures,” the BMA report said.

It noted that pressures on mental health services were particularly acute, with a 44% decrease in the number of mental health beds since 2000-01. [...] “Ultimately we could reduce the need for hospital beds by improving preventive care. But cutting both preventive services and beds leads to disaster. That is what we are now witnessing.”

Frail, elderly people 'left to struggle alone' - BBC News
Hundreds of thousands of vulnerable older people struggle to get by with little or no care because of cuts to care in England, a charity says. [...] And the charity warned that the whole system was close to collapse in some areas with services closing.
It comes after the government said it was looking to solve the problems.
Last week, Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt pledged action on social care, which covers care homes and help in the home.
That has prompted a growing expectation that a rescue package will be announced in the Budget in early March.

Booming gig economy costs £4bn in lost tax and benefit payouts, says TUC | Business | The Guardian
Study shows low-paid self-employment and zero-hours contracts costing exchequer £75m a week – a quarter of England’s weekly social care budget [...] Their relatively low earnings also make them more likely to need to rely on in-work benefits such as tax credits and housing benefit, the TUC said. [...] “The huge rise in insecure work isn’t just bad for workers. It’s punching a massive hole in the public finances too,” said TUC general secretary Frances O’Grady.

Hunt not in the mood to make excuses - BBC News
https://www.politicshome.com/news/uk/health-and-care/nhs/news/83280/nhs-storm-rife-another-mid-staffs-scandal All roads for a move on social care now lead to the Budget on 8 March. Rumours that the Chancellor, Philip Hammond, will announce a new financial package on social care have been rife in Whitehall.
The sudden scrapping of Surrey County Council's referendum on a 15% council tax rise fuelled suspicions that its leader had been quietly tipped off about an impending announcement on social care funding.

NHS Health Check: Nine in 10 hospitals 'overcrowded' this winter - BBC News
To minimise the risk of infections and delays in getting treatment, hospitals are meant to have no more than 85% of beds occupied. [...] NHS bosses said hospitals had major problems discharging frail patients.
One experienced hospital boss described some of the weeks this winter as the "worst" he had seen in his career. [...] A poll by Ipsos MORI of 1,033 adults for the BBC has suggested three-quarters want to see charges increased for people coming from abroad as a way of raising more money for the NHS. Some 40% would support a rise in income tax and 37% backed charging for some services. // >> 44% find it acceptable to charge patients w disease and illnesses caused by lifestyle (cancer, cvd, type2 diabetes, liver, high blood pressure, cholesterol)

UK faces return to inequality of Thatcher years, says report | Business | The Guardian
Pressure on the government to help struggling Britons has intensified after a leading thinktank warned that falling living standards for the poor threatened the biggest rise in inequality since Margaret Thatcher was prime minister.

The Resolution Foundation said Theresa May would need to make good on her pledge to support “just about managing” households as it released a report showing that rising inflation and an end to recent strong jobs growth would hit the least well-off hardest.

Skills and infrastructure top priority in industrial strategy, say UK firms | Business | The Guardian
The government’s new industrial strategy must focus on improving skills and infrastructure in Britain rather than bailing out struggling large companies, according to a survey of business leaders.

The findings suggest businesses are not in favour of rescue deals such as the government’s proposed support for the steel industry. Theresa May, the prime minister, and Greg Clark, the business, energy and industrial strategy secretary, are expected to unveil an industrial strategy for the UK next week. They will set out the government’s approach to key industries and issues such as infrastructure, skills, regulation and research and development.

- immigration emergency brake was unrealistic! could have asked, would have not been given one.
- Brexit had already good deal, thatcher rebate, Schengen, £, etc. Even more minor concessions. But it was ideological emotional led campaign.
- David Cameron had always in mind to get Conservative Party back together, thus no personal attacks of Leave Campaigners/Brexiteers. But this in turn backfired, dividing the union itself.
- also emergency budget/austerity v2.0 backfired by Osborne. Leave Campaign reframed it as "punishment budget"

[...] The bodies estimate that trusts and CCGs can make a further £14.9bn of savings by “moderating the growth in demand for healthcare services” and by making 2% productivity and efficiency improvements.
