Ed Miliband and Tessa Jowell Invited Circle Into NHS

A co-conspirator forwarded this email sent to Massoud Fouladi, the Chief Medical Officer and co-founder of the Circle partnership which is taking over the running of a failing NHS hospital.

Labour leaning blogs and activists are up in arms about the invitation to the Circle Partnership to come in and run Hinchingbrooke Hospital. They seem to forget that it was Labour’s now Shadow Health Secretary Andy Burnham who started the Hinchingbrooke process. The decision to proceed with the franchise was one of his first acts as Health Secretary. Circle has already done some £110 million of NHS business under the last Labour Government. Labour’s Liz Kendall told the commons today: “Patients and the public will be deeply worried that this morning they have seen this Government’s true vision for the future of our NHS”. Ironically Andy Burnham, who started the whole process, was nowhere to be seen today,

        Be aware that within the Labour Party’s inner circles there is an even more unaccountable little freemasonry operating called the Co-operative Party. An examination of their activities and the nature of some of their poiltical networks is a key to unravelling what Burnham and Jowell have been up to in office and subsequently.

            I don’t believe much of what he says but do I believe he wouldn’t:

            1. Claim he worked for Labour
            2. Claim he was appointed head of a strat’ health authority
            3. Claim he was in charge of NHS procurment

            while in fact the guy was actually Cameron’s advisor.

            If what he said there wasn’t true, Labour would be all over trying to get him to apologise for misleading the House.

            3) He did speak to Rupert or Brooks about BskyB bid

    An invitation to a “round table” is just a tad away from being “invited into the NHS”. By this logic, if a minister asks someone from the TUC to come to a meeting discussing employment law then he’s brought the Unions into government.

      Yep, £40 million. It was £20 million only about 3 or 4 years ago.

      There’s a whole fiasco of NHS management cockups relating to this hospital over the last 8 years since we moved to not far away from it. The archives of the Huntingdon Post are full of bad news stories. Even one of the trouble-shooter CEOs brought in from somewhere else to sort it out managed to have herself paid as a contractor through her own company or something fairly similar (can’t recall precise details). Then they went ahead with a new PFI on an extended A&E funded by some very “brave” assumptions on patient numbers, which of course din’t materialise and started racking up the debt even more.

      It’s hard to think that Circle could make a worse job than the NHS have been doing for quite some time.

      Still, my youngest child was born there, and no one in the family died of MRSA or anything like that, so at least they got that right!

        No-one has died in that hospital of MRSA yet – or it hasn’t been reported.

    Before the NHS Britain’s health service was delivered by a mixture of private practice and charity funded institutions and the system on the whole worked. Post WW2 that has been rubbed out of history by Left wing academia. Before the 1950s there was really little medicine could do. Many forget the strides in technology made of the last 60 years. Prior to WW2 the rich even with their private health care were just as likely to die from common ailments as the poor.

        One is the huge rise in the employment of hospital managers, under labour, at salaries of £40k pa plus , plus expenses and pensions , with no responsibilities for improving patient care. Their only concerns are expensive meeting rooms, time consuming worthless meetings, company cars, office targets and shifting such things as paper clips.

        The second is the drive to make sure that all nurses are degree qualified managers , again with no responsibility for patient care .

        Nobody in hospital, anymore, cares about the patient. They are an inconvenience that most staff see as detracting from the time they need to spend on their careers, their rise up the greasy pole out of the wards and towards that sunny upland , the conference room.

        Florence Nightingale must be weeping in her grave!!

          Tony Blair vastly inflated peoples expectations of their worth and value just by being elected PM, let alone his continuing financial success, albeit soon to be short-lived.

        Whether you’re burning a Koran or a poppy, the intention is to make the other side strike-out at you. You can then ‘resort’ to the violence you couldn’t use initially, because you can ‘justify’ it as self-defence.

          in a free country (I know) we should be free to offend/protest and spe@k.

          • Tessa Tickles says:

            The main point of a protest is not to show that we have freedom, it’s to make a protest. BUT, if your main point is not to protest, but to start a fight against a group so you can kick the crap out of them, you can use your peaceful protest to goad your enemy into striking first. Then you’re completely innocent when you kick the shit out of your opponent, because “they started it.”

          • Tessa Tickles says:

            OK, Billy. Let’s say I want to start a religious war. Me and my 500 EDL friends have a march, and each of us burn a Koran. We know full well what the reaction will be.

            We’ve done nothing violent. The muzzies, after all, are free to burn poppies (as they do). But the (intended) result IS violent. People die. But my 500 EDL friends and I are blameless, because our protest was peaceful.

            Of course, the protests where poppies are burned are intended to cause a violent backlash too, and this is where the police should act – but, of course, as Infuriated correctly points out, the police are politically correct and one-sided.

            Ok, it just lays basic freedom of speech, with a man burning a copy of the Koran and a copy of the bible, its quite good and in a non violent way.

          • Tessa Tickles says:

            I agree Billy. But my point is, a ‘peaceful’ protest that has, at its core, the aim of provoking a violent backlash, is NOT a peaceful protest.

            What about if a christon church group protested against homosexuality (Pecefully), does that mean i have the right to kick the crap out of them? I dont believe it does.

            “I despise what you say but will defend to the death your right to say it”

          • Tessa Tickles says:

            No, because the Christian church group are just being a bunch of dicks.

            But if they were to peacefully march into a gay nightclub in Brighton, shouting (peacefully) “you’re all going to burn in hell”, I’d say they were trying to start something.

          • Billy Bowden is the greatest umpire ever ! (Episode six, the Umpire strikes back) also in Cunt3DHDTV says:

            As soon as you censor free speech it is no longer free, Its messy and can be unpleasent (see some of the stuff i get on here plus stuff on twitter), but its better than the state deciding who should protest and message they can protest about.

            The violence is down to the individal, not the protest, as for your sence of christans going into a gay club in Brighton, they would shit themselves :-)

          • Tessa Tickles says:

            A man who hangs around outside a primary school, telling the kids that he’s got a nice bag of sweets and some puppies at home, is not being violent – are you saying you’d fight to the death to protect his right to say that?

            And if I told you – now – that I’m going to go into a Mosque tomorrow (I’m going to go in there wearing only bikini bottoms) and I’m going to protest about their religion by telling them all they’re “paedo-worshipping scum”, would you back me up on that? Can I rely on you to defend (to the death, your death) my right to say that?

            No, because I’d be inciting the inevitable violence and I’d deserve what I got.

          • Billy Bowden is the greatest umpire ever ! (Episode six, the Umpire strikes back) also in Cunt3DHDTV says:

            Example 1 (Man with sweets is wrong on all levels).

            Example 2 Yes i would defend your right (as long as you didnt break indecently laws), Because your protest was factully sound, Mohammed abused a child and his followers worship him.

            Easier access for you, then, eh?

            I’m with TT on this one – as I see it, poppy burning (or Koran burning) is an incitement to a breach of the peace – if it wasn’t, then there would be no need for all those coppers to protect MAC every time they have a demo.

            Still, at least they’re banned until they find a new name and interweb domain. Personally, I’d like to see them allowed to protest but for the police to stay away until after they get the hiding they are asking for, but we couldn’t have that, could we?

    OK…Listen to this…..

    So the Government initiative to supply every home with digital TV is a good one. After all, England lies WAY behind our European neighbours on technology. But It emerges that Housing Associations (one of which I’m a Resident Inspector for) are passing on the costs to the tenants. Here in the S.E. 90 – 95% neither want nor NEED this modernisation, as they already have cab…le, satellite or freeview. The only reason for the ‘upgrade’ is to increase the valuw of the housing stock..This I believe should be a cost borne out by the Associations or the Government.

    In my own case this is £283 for a service I don’t need.

    As, in my HA case, 65% of local residents are in receipt of full or partial housing benefit, this represents a cost of £2.6m to taxpayers. My council alone…Nationally it runs into £bns.

    It’s a ‘done deal’ as it’s a directive handed down by Grant Shapps and Jeremy Hunt through the two Ministries involved.

    Here’s the rub…..The only two designated companies authorised to carry out the works are…….You guessed it…Tory Party Donors……

      Are you suggesting that the work should be given to the BBC, or a trades union?

      I’d imagine that most sensible companies involved in large scale contracting of this sort would contribute to both parties, so maybe you could investigate and see if they are also donors to the Labour lot.

        He’s suggesting the work shouldn’t be done at all unless the individuals request it.

        I think he’s right.

        It’s just more of the same positioning and cronyism. Folk getting ‘close’ to ministers and MPs so they know what the fuckers are cooking up or influencing them to cook up various schemes that, surprise, they are uniquely qualified to consult on or introduce or be ‘preferred suppliers’.

        That’s what all those c*unts being appointed Quango heads by Labour was all about. As others have said – the NHS has generated more millionaires than the national lottery over the past 13 years. Fuckers supplying badly specced computer systems, over-pri*ced this, over-pri*ced that, totally unnecessary the other. Fucking hospital managers on quarter of a million quid a pop.

        And local councils are no better. Private Eye has a whole page of the crooked fuckers on the take every single week and the same scandals rumble on for years with no fucker spending a minute in jail. Worse – continually re-elected by their brain-dead local voters.

        And how do they choose to save money? Close a library that costs fuck all to keep open compared with the crooked contracts, planning applications and all the rest of the gangster deals they get up to.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
