Ok, I have this theory about the paedo's in power.
Over the past few months, I've discussed it with various friends and contacts and they all agree, it could hold a certain amount of water.....
The paedo activities within the UK have gone, for the most part, undetected for decades. That would probably involve a lot of file interception, fast talking and deals under the table.
The term civil service can refer to either a branch of governmental service in which individuals are employed (hired) on the basis of professional merit as proven by competitive examinations; or the body of employees in any government agency apart from the military, which is a separate extension of any national government.A civil servant or public servant is a person in the public sector employed for a government department or agency. The extent of civil servants of a state as part of the "civil service" varies from country to country. In the United Kingdom, for instance, only Crown (national government) employees are referred to as civil servants whereas county or city employees are not.[....]So Civil Servants are Central Government employees that have worked their way up through a departmental sector and have reached the pinnacle of their career. They have become adept at oiling the cogs and the quirky "pause and squeeze" as they shake the hand they just greased is more than likely reciprocated in true "Old boys network" style.
An international civil servant or international staff member is a civilian employee that is employed by an intergovernmental organization. These international civil servants do not resort under any national legislation (from which they have immunity of jurisdiction) but are governed by an internal staff regulations. All disputes related to international civil service are brought before special tribunals created by these international organizations such as, for instance, the Administrative Tribunal of the ILO.Specific referral can be made to the International Civil Service Commission (ICSC) of the United Nations, an independent expert body established by the United Nations General Assembly. Its mandate is to regulate and coordinate the conditions of service of staff in the United Nations common system, while promoting and maintaining high standards in the international civil service. [....]The civil service in the United Kingdom only includes Crown (i.e. central government) employees, not parliamentary employees or local government employees.Source
They have learned to keep their mouth shut if they don't like what they see (and if they do!) and they keep the Country going, behind the scenes.
Those Employed by ParliamentThe first category of public body is comprised of Parliament itself, and the bodies which report direct to Parliament, including the National Audit Office, the Parliamentary Ombudsman and the Electoral Commission. Constitutionally, employees of these bodies are not servants of the Crown and they are therefore not civil servants.
The second category of public body is comprised mainly of those who work for Government departments which report to Ministers (who are of course always Parliamentarians).
If you are a new recruit, arriving on your first day, you will first meet support staff (or ‘administrative staff’) in reception areas, delivering papers, and so on. They also carry out routine casework and provide direct support for senior staff. They are very important, not only because nothing would function without them, but also because they see more clearly than anyone else what is going on. If you want to know whether a unit is well run, and provides a good service to its customers, you will generally get a better informed, and more honest, answer from support staff.Next up the chain are middle management (or ‘executive grades’). They help formulate and amend policy; deal with more difficult casework and help Ministers respond to letters from the public. A small number of them are in the ‘fast stream’ – serving a three to five year apprenticeship before being promoted to (what used to be called) Grade 7 and then into the Senior Civil Service. [...]
What do these senior people do? They help Ministers and other officials deliver Ministers’ objectives, both by giving advice to Ministers and by implementing Ministers’ decisions. They need to be able to work closely and effectively with Ministers, with other Whitehall civil servants, with the wider civil service, with the private and voluntary sectors and with pressure groups. They operate more like a club than a hierarchical organisation – and that is simultaneously their great strength and their great weakness – a subject to which I return later.
The key grade is Grade 7. Grade 7s are expected to know all there is to know about their policy area, and to know all the key players, pressure groups and so on. In a well run department, you will find that senior officials listen very carefully to their Grade 7s, and tend to operate in a way which supports their Grade 7s, rather than vice versa. [...]
There are around 3700 people in the Senior Civil Service (SCS), including many outside Whitehall, many specialists and many who first worked in other sectors. Indeed, the long term aim is to have around one-third of the SCS recruited from outside the civil service. SCS jobs vary hugely, but usually include one or more of the following:
- agreeing strategic aims with Ministers, and communicating those aims to Grade 7s and others;
- agreeing and providing the financial and human resources needed to achieve those aims;
- deploying their greater knowledge and experience in support of Grade 7s;
- undertaking complex casework and project management, and
The breadth of responsibilities increases with increasing grade, but it is seldom necessary for there to be a Grade 5 and a Grade 3 and a Grade 2 between the key Grade 7 and the Permanent Secretary/Head of Department. Most departments structure themselves so as to cut out one of these tiers (but not always the same one) in each management hierarchy.It is worth noting that the more senior officials are not necessarily more powerful. They have to rely on others both for information and for delivery, and they are often heavily constrained by (small p) political factors, including the independence of each Secretary of State, and hence the independence of each departmental senior management team. Other constraints on senior officials include the need to avoid annoying Ministers, and the club-like nature of senior officialdom. [...]
- acting as a personal adviser to Ministers, of whom more below
They advise the Ministers who then write the basics of a policy. This then gets passed back to the Civil Servant who fills in all the details whilst the Minister advises the Government on said policy (that's still being drafted).
So essentially, the Civil Servants advise the Ministers, who advise the MP, who then advise the PM..... Please feel free to correct me if you feel my surmettre to be incorrect.
That makes, does it not, the "fat controller" the one that has occupied the same office for the past 20-30 years?
So why is nobody looking at these people?
