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?

      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?

    • 190

    “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.”

    Put baldly, the verdict on John Terry appears almost satirical. One footballer admits to using the words “fucking black Hunt”; yet is found not guilty of racist abuse. That offence should obviously now be defined as racist words bellowed by anyone who can’t afford an expensive lawyer. Grauniad leader.

        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.

    When politicians jump into bed with prostitutes, like newspapermen, bankers and Eurocrats, returning home to your wife with an economically transmitted disease is not going to cut much ice, unless she is not very bright. Fortunately for Labour, the Tories and the Lib Dems most people are not very bright.

    Burnham is up to his neck in it. My partner overheard him on the train going oop north saying how he was going to ‘claim the moral high ground’ after having refused to negotiate any further – alas in not quite such a broad Liverpuul accent as he normally sports on TV. Hoon.

Cathy Jamieson MP, Labour’s Shadow Treasury minister, commenting on Treasury analysis of the economic impact of tax changes…

“If the Treasury is looking at the economic impact of tax changes, then surely it should examine the impact of the rise in VAT and cuts to tax credits? George Osborne’s £12 billion VAT rise knocked confidence, helped to choke off the recovery and has cost families £1,350 over the last three years.”
