NHS on brink of collapse, warns former health minister | Society | The Guardian
Norman Lamb [...] NHS will crash within two years with catastrophic consequences unless the government orders an immediate multibillion pound cash injection, the former minister in charge of care services says. [...] fears mount among senior NHS officials, care providers and local authorities that NHS and care services are approaching breaking point. [Lamb] accuses the government of dishonesty in failing to admit the scale of the problems [ sick population, premature ageing, chronic diseases, obesity crisis, Big Sugar, food industry, cancer, sedentary lifestyle, demographic bubble, pollution, chronic stress, mental health ]. [ need non-partisan commision ] [...] NHS CEO [...] [sees no] progress in tackling public health problems [which are multi-dimensional][, shaving the top off/limiting the extent/prevention (Sugar Tax/Alcohol Unit pricing review/review of food deserts & fast-processed-junk-food filled grocery stores) against predictable/status quo = pressures continue 2 increase.]

Bumper payouts for housebuilding executives as market booms | Business | The Guardian
Two of Britain’s largest housebuilders, Berkeley Group and Persimmon, could hand out about £1bn to their top executives and managers in pay and bonuses over the next six years, boosted by strong UK house prices and government-subsidies for home-buyers. Tony Pidgley, founder and executive chairman at Berkeley, is expected to face tough questions on Tuesday at the group’s shareholder meeting near its headquarters in leafy Cobham, Surrey, after it emerged last month that his pay package last year was worth £23.3m. [...] Meanwhile, executives at Persimmon, the UK’s largest housebuilder, also have a Berkeley-style incentive scheme that is one of the most generous to be found at a London stock market-listed firm. [...] Berkeley’s share price has risen more than 40% since the election of a Conservative government in May, [...] [bonuses] “entirely based on short-term performance”. [...] return on equity[.][ < KPI, what gets measured gets done ] &! bbc.in/1KE0jut - Barratt Homes profits +45%
