Labour Shadow Health Team Doctor History

Following “Dr” Eoin Clarke’s latest humiliation yesterday, now his previously unwavering disciples have been left red-faced. Top of the pile comes fellow conspiracy theory lover Tom Watson, who rather ill-advisedly retweeted a link to the good doctor’s recent claptrap about Virgin private healthcare. Clarke has now deleted all the original tweets, but as shown below several Labour MPs have been caught out repeating his smears:

Also joining in was Karl Turner, who retweeted some seven links to Clarke’s made up material, while Diane Abbott, Sadiq Khan, Grahame Morris and, perhaps most worryingly, Shadow Health Secretary Andy Burnham also retweeted fantasy posts by Clarke. Labour’s shadow health team were conned by a lunatic without so much as a fact check. Now they could be in hot water too…

UPDATE:  Guido now understands that Clarke had to pay costs so is understandably sore. He also points out that he deleted all his tweets that were retweeted by Labour’s great and good. The tweets then disappeared from Labour timelines. The point still stands: they were duped by a frothing lunatic who was writing fairytales. No one checked the facts before the Shadow Health team pushed his lies.

      Just seen the Clinton woman on the news. She’s going downhill faster than a bob sleigher. Reckon Barry should pension her off to the old crone’s home and find some new blood to save the world.

        If i post something thats libelous, and you rewteet it , thats libellious too..

        Does this mean watson can be sued, please please be true ?

        retweeting is re-publishing, and you should be careful what one publishes.

        MPs’ expenses: top Tory in secret deal
        A senior Conservative MP investigating Britain’s social care system secretly arranged for the owners of a chain of nursing homes to buy his London flat – which he now rents back at taxpayers’ expense, The Daily Telegraph can disclose.

    Of course they want it to be true, they are desperate to get into power and are equally as futile as the present administration.

      Kebab Time says:

      You have removed an inaccurate and defamatory article about Anna Soubry from your web site which was written by a Dr. Eoin Clarke. He has removed the article from his web site and posted a full and unreserved apology accepting he had published wholly inaccurate figures and had made false allegations against Anna Soubry.

      You are aware that Dr. Clarke agreed the apology with Anna’s solicitor but you have not posted Dr. Clarke’s apology on your web site nor apologised for publishing an article which you did not check, which was factually inaccurate and which made false allegations against Anna. Dr Clarke has also agreed to pay the costs of Anna’s solicitors.

      Anna Soubry has no desire to engage in legal action against you given that you would have to bear those costs. Recent events have shown, though on a far more serious and damaging level , the need for anyone who publishes allegations against another person to verify them and stay within the law. In the circumstances please would you publish Dr Clarke’s apology which he has agreed with Anna Soubry’s solicitors.”

      Someone in Suffolk says:

      That’s an interesting comment. I was thinking only yesterday that Labour are defined by their hatred. Not merely hatred of people who disagree with them, but hatred for the sake of hatred. A hatred of good schools, a hatred of knowledge, a hatred of success, a hatred of England, a hatred of happiness. A hatred of anything that can live without them, a hatred of anything that’s better than them, which is more or less everything.

    After deleting this twat from Twitter links, he will now be airbrushed out of all Party Photographs.

    Eoin Clarke is now a non person, he has never existed, and has never been a Labour Party member, never published a doctorate thesis, and is a figment of your imagination, seek help from a medical doctor.

    Nothing gets ‘em retweeting like good old fashioned confirmation bias. Most of these twazzocks won’t even bother to click the link before sharing an anti-tory story.

    domino316 says:

    If only I had more than 140 characters to tweet “The Department of Health under the Labour Government allowed Strategic Health Authorities and Primary Care Trusts to ignore national and EU regulations on procurement, failed to undertake statutory consultations e.g. Section 11 Health and Social Care Act 2001 or Section 242 (1B) of the NHS Act 2006, and allowed senior management of Community Healthcare Services to slice off NHS services to the private sector by creating Social Enterprises and then took prime jobs in them, hired by their former colleagues and complete with big pay rises”.

    Alternatively I could have tried “how can private companies ask the NHS to cover any risks from Transferring staff under TUPE if the application wasn’t successful or how can the NHS be asked to share risks and future liabilities for redundancy etc. if the private company loses the contract when it comes up for renewal”

    It would save me having to write it all up for the Directorate General for Internal Market and Services and the Directorate General for Competition at the EU.
