Telegraph reported Buckingham palace Image by AP The Public and Commercial Services (PCS) Union which represents 120 of the 200 staff at Windsor said the Royal household has broken promises over giving the staff extra allowances for carrying out the extra duties The union will ballot its members between March 31 and April 14 All the workers involved are uniformed wardens who work in the corridors and rooms open to the public protecting the exhibits and helping the public as well as working in the ticket office cloakroom and catering outlets "These workers are loyal to their employer

people from various walks of life who invested money in the company include priestshard-nosed businessmen and NRIswhich shows either that the business looked good enoughor it took little for them to part with big money on a sham project If it is just another story of a few gullible people getting swindledhow come Chief Minister Oommen Chandy is about to lose his chair on account of it Thereby hangs a tale of sexpolitics and the media On the one handmedia investigations exposed the close association of a personal assistant of the CM with Team Solaras also Nairs extensive network of political connectionsboth in the ruling party and the opposition On the otherit was the medias perception of Nair as a sex object that gave the case the prominence it received One is tempted to say that if there was no Nairor if her objectification by the media had not met the Malayali oglers benchmarkthe scam would hardly have been news The media went in for shockingly sexist overkill

for cover Then came another bomb: Shalu Menonactor and dance teacherhad connections with Team Solar Politicians including the home ministerwho had extended routine PR patronage to her had to tie themselves into knots to explain themselves The media readied a new candidate for slaughterthe young daughter of a starletfor her alleged association with Team Solar The whole exercise had only one target: Oommen Chandy There is no doubt that Chandy was not sufficiently vigilant about what went on in his office Team Solar used their proximity to Chandys personal assistant to hoodwink at least a few investors Chandy is in a catch 22 His open-door policy and citizen contact programme are his USP A shadow has been cast on them through allegations of Nairs visits to his office Though it is a politically incorrect thing to sayhe is the first performing chief minister Kerala has seen in several decades with all his inherent Congressman-like faults His style of work as a chief minister who is on his toes and ready to meet people face to face has set alarm bells ringing amongst the political class as a wholebecause he is setting a dangerous precedent The bureaucracy is equally upset because he is going over their heads to the people and handing out decisions He has perhaps more enemies within his own party than outside The solar scam is designer-made for them But the CPMwhich
