No Retraction From Burnham of NHS Twitter Smear


Despite the New Statesman’s story about NHS privatisation turning out to be a steaming pile of wishful thinking, Shadow Health Secretary Andy Burnham is continuing to peddle the smear.

Probably time to retract that one, eh Andy?


  1. 1
    Fact says:

    He would`nt know the truth if he bit his arse.

  2. 2
    MrAngry61 says:

    Burnham will never retract or apologise – just like all Labourites and lefties.

  3. 3
    Mike Hunt says:

    Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth, at least in the ‘mind’ of the electorate.

    I wonder which version will appear on the BBC?

  4. 4
    I don't need no doctor says:

    Burnham, get a wash you dirty boy. Oh and get over it, labour lost and you are a loser.

  5. 5
    I don't need no doctor says:

    John Terry found not guilty. The law is an ass.

  6. 6
    Raving Loon says:

    The BBC will probably run it as a U-Turn story.

  7. 7
    Jesse Norman says:

    There will be a debate on this NHS on Monday in House of Commons

  8. 8
    Andrew Efiong says:

    He’s been flushed out as a reactionary, too quick to tweet before he checks his sources.

    Imagine letting him loose with the NHS, he’d try all sorts of stupid things before checking whether they’d work. No wonder Labour waste so much money.

  9. 9
    All socialists are hypocrits says:

    Chris Bryant hasn’t apologised yet for calling Hunt and Cameron liars although according to Mr Speaker this is NOT unparliamentary language from his chum Chris. I never heard anything about this from Labour MPs when they were calling for Osborne to apologise to Balls but then again it’s one rule for Labour and one for everyone else…..

    Is somebody going to grow a pair and admit how bad it is or how good it could be?
    Thought not.

    As for Burnham, good manners stops me saying what I think.

    I’d assumed this was the current government undoing Broon’s nasty clawback of charitable donations to hospitals – grateful families raising money for a new kidney unit for example.

    It has long fascinated me that spiders living in their webs, if we leave them alone, exist alongside their long deceased predecessors, apparently in complete oblivion to them. I have often wondered where is there a parallel to this (Rausing family excepted, of course.)

    Then my mind turned to the current dead/undead state of the Parliamentary Labour Party…

    I Remember You Hoo says:

    Greens know no shame.

    These are the same people who want us to live like 15th century pe4sants with all the poverty, misery and low life expectancy that goes with it and think that three quarters of humanity should be killed off.
    It’s a party quite literally packed to the gunnels with loons and fanatics. The only shame is, around 250,000 hard wired lunatics vote for their policies.

    I will ensure a growth of negative 50% in world literacy rates.

    “Joining the Labour Party

    He joined the Labour Party aged 14 in 1984,[3] during the miners’ strike, and was a researcher to Tessa Jowell from 1994 until the 1997 election. He joined the Transport and General Workers’ Union in 1995. After the 1997 election, he was briefly a Parliamentary Officer for the NHS Confederation from August to December 1997, before taking up the post as an administrator with the Football Task Force for a year.[4]
    In 1998, he became a Special Adviser to the then-Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, Chris Smith, a position he remained in until his election to Parliament in a safe seat in 2001.”

    Can you imagine the level of insight provided by the Maximum Imbecile? Sarah Ferguson’s stories about helicopters would be more nuanced.

    Not that you can entirely blame the Imbecile. The topic of ‘research’ was most likely ‘suggested’ by some professor in the department who wanted somebody to do the leg-work for some book or other he was planning to write.

    Tay King-dePisse says:

    Gordon Brown and children is reminiscent of that old story about William Wordsworth– a biographer went to Wordsworth’s village and interviewed those adults who would, as younger adults or as children, have known the poet, and asked about WW’s reputation as being a large brooding man who was hard to get to know well, and who scared children by his app*earance and demeanour. It was asked of some of the villagers whether, as had been reputed, Wordsworth returned the children’s antipathy. One villager summed it up thus: “Happens HE was quite fond o’ the kiddies, but THEY was never so very fond o’ HIM!”

    Something tells me Gordon strikes that same chord. You just know that, right?

Congratulations on your new appointment. Boaz.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
