The Party’s Over

party's over2
Our lovely SOS
sos
has warned us on more than one occasion
“The truth is we don’t have as many resources as might have been available in times past”
end of the line
“Any mechanisms for dealing with the past must have regard to the fiscal position in which the UK government finds itself as a result of the deficit”
deficit
clock is ticking
“on the Assembly’s stalled bid to implement welfare reforms, with failure to introduce the legislation set to be a very expensive choice”.
less time
“if they choose not to then, yes, unfortunately that does mean that it would have an impact on the block grant.”
“Funding of social security benefits in Northern Ireland is provided from the Treasury.
uk treasury
If Northern Ireland does not progress welfare reform, this could lead to adjustment to the NI Block.”
budget cuts
The Chief Secretary to the Treasury,
Britain's Chief Secretary to the Treasury Danny Alexander arrives in Downing Street for a cabinet meeting on budget day, in central London
made it clear that if the Stormont Executive do not implement relevant welfare reforms by January 2014, the Northern Ireland block will be adjusted.
budget cuts2
Her Majesty’s Treasury provided over £5 billion of funding in 2012-13 to cover the cost of social security spending in Northern Ireland.
additional funding
That funding is in addition to the Northern Ireland block grant and is provided on the basis that there is parity between the social security systems in Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK
credit card
Any delay in passing the Welfare Reform Bill will increase the costs to the Treasury and the UK Government is entitled to recover those costs through an adjustment to the Northern Ireland block grant.

He made it clear that the costs are potentially huge and Northern Ireland can’t afford them,
phenomenal fine
Estimated costs for the delays incurred this year are some £5 million per month, up to £200 million per year by 2017-18.
fine mess
Our lovely SOS
sos
said “The idea that British identity and culture can be defended by people who wrap themselves in the union flag and attack police officers with bricks and blast bombs and ceremonial swords is grotesque,
grotesque
rioting
fleggers2
is completely counter-productive to any cause that its participants claim to espouse”.
what part no
