iSoft Target

Working for the NHS means unfortunately I have a fair amount of contact with iSoft, the company currently under investingation for accounting irregularities. Yesterday I came across a mousemat from the company with the following strapline (or words to this effect):

"Creating tomorrow's Healthcare solutions today"

Apparently this is also how they report their profits.

Bring Back the Birmingham Mafia

Channel 4 has a piece on its 7 O'Clock news programme this week claiming that the current trouble Blair has were concocted in a West Brom Balti House between Tom Watson, MP for West Brom East, Khalid Mahmood, MP for Perry Barr and possibly the MP for Birmingham Edgbaston, Gisela Stuart.

If true, this could be the second most significant restaurant meeting in the history of the Labour Leadership - and without a potential Labour leader in site.

Update: Of course Gisela Stuart would not be involved in a plot against Blair. It was the MP for Birmingham Erdington, Sion Simon. Finally, the restaurant was in Wolverhampton, not West Brom. The People's Republic is happy to apologise for any offense caused.
