The Prime Sinister quietly announced a new bonus scheme worth thousands of pounds for top civil servants.

Senior Officials will be in line for ‘on the spot’ bonuses of up to £5,000 to recognise “outstanding contribution” to Government departments.

The top-ups will be doled out to the 10% highest performing officials working for Government departments.

A spokesperson for the Cabinet Office said the money for the new bonus scheme will come from the existing civil service budget, but can be paid at any time through the year.

Astronomy picture of the day.

Explanation: Welcome to the December solstice, a day the world does not end … even according to the Mayan Calendar. To celebrate, consider this dramatic picture of Orion rising over El Castillo, the central pyramid at Chichén Itzá, one of the great Mayan centers on the Yucatán peninsula. Also known as the Temple of Kukulkan it stands 30 meters tall and 55 meters wide at the base. Built up as a series of square terraces by the pre-Columbian civilization between the 9th and 12th century, the structure can be used as a calendar and is noted for astronomical alignments. In fact, the Mayans were accomplished astronomers and mathematicians, accurately using the cyclic motions of the stars, Sun, Moon, and planets to measure time and construct calendars. Peering through clouds in this night skyscape, stars in the modern constellation Orion the Hunter represented a turtle in the Mayan sky. Tak sáamal.
