        NHS patients given Death Row drug says:

        130,000 people died on the so called Liverpool Care Pathway (LCP) last year, Waaaaaalk onnnnn. Professor Patrick Pullicino termed the LCP a death pathway and euthanasia by the back door.

        Some 30% of UK deaths, many of them not imminently dying until they were forced onto the death pathway, where they were drugged, dehydrated and starved to death.

        Why are hospitals getting extra funding for putting patients on this disgraceful death pathway?

        • 111
          GPs told to draw up a death register of the 1% of patients they expect to die in any one year says:

          If you aren’t sure who is likely to die, the guidelines tell GP, use your intuition.

          In other words, GUESS?

          Professor Pullicino and other eminent specialists state that it is impossible to forecast that someone is going to die a year ahead.

          So the death register becomes a self fulfilling prophesy.

          Remind you of anything, this?

          • Muslim Doctors complain they're being pressured to collude in the killings fo NHS patitients says:

            “Senior Muslim doctors have called a summit amid mounting concerns that thousands of elderly and terminally-ill patients are having their lives prematurely ended to free up hospital beds.

            They will meet next month to discuss fears that the Liverpool Care Pathway (LCP) is being used as a euthanasia pathway in the NHS, in hospices and in private and residential care homes for the elderly.

            Dr Jafer Qureshi, a consultant psychiatrist and a senior member of the Muslim Council of Britain, will host the meeting of about a dozen senior Islamic physicians in his home city of Birmingham.

            He said it follows complaints from some Muslim medics that they were being placed under pressure to collude in the killings of NHS patients.”

            First they came for the intellectuals

            But gordon was not an intellectual

            Then they came for the professions
            But gordon was not a professional
            Then hey came forthe. intelligentsia
            Certainly not gordon
            Then they came foR the aristocracy
            Well that lets gordon off

            Finally they came for the great vacuous deep fried mars bar eating fearties from fife with aspirations to being serious politicians

            Nuff said .

      Hopefully it could well be the death of Newsnight, sadly politically compromised as far as impartiality goes for years.

    Emily says:

    Because I could not stop for
    Death,
    He kindly stopped for me;
    The carriage held but just
    ourselves
    And Immortality.
    We slowly drove, he knew no
    haste,
    And I had put away
    My labor, and my leisure too,
    For his civility.
    We passed the school, where
    children strove
    At recess, in the ring;
    We passed the fields of gazing
    grain,
    We passed the setting sun.
    Or rather, he passed us;
    The dews grew quivering and
    chill,
    For only gossamer my gown,
    My tippet only tulle.
    We paused before a house that
    seemed
    A swelling of the ground;
    The roof was scarcely visible,
    The cornice but a mound.
    Since then ’tis centuries, and yet
    each
    Feels shorter than the day
    I first surmised the horses’ heads
    Were toward eternity.

        Dylan not Bob says:

        Do not go gentle into that good
        night,
        Old age should burn and rave at
        close of day;
        Rage, rage against the dying of the
        light.
        Though wise men at their end know
        dark is right,
        Because their words had forked no
        lightning they
        Do not go gentle into that good
        night.
        Good men, the last wave by, crying
        how bright
        Their frail deeds might have danced
        in a green bay,
        Rage, rage against the dying of the
        light.
        Wild men who caught and sang the
        sun in flight,
        And learn, too late, they grieved it
        on its way,
        Do not go gentle into that good
        night.
        Grave men, near death, who see
        with blinding sight
        Blind eyes could blaze like meteors
        and be gay,
        Rage, rage against the dying of the
        light.
        And you, my father, there on the
        sad height,
        Curse, bless, me now with your
        fierce tears, I pray.
        Do not go gentle into that good
        night.
        Rage, rage against the dying of the
        light.

      Sorry Ed – started to read what you had typed, but after the word “Tories” your post appears to have been hacked by LULSEC’s DILLIGAF section, and all it says now is “TYPED BY A HUGE VAGINA!”.

      I’m sure what you said was exquisitely relevant, and took responsibility for you and your glove puppet Militwat in supporting the Kirkcaldy Kwanii in getting us to this position in the first place.

      Face facts there are probably almost 1 million people that will never work again says:

      If there are insufficient jobs for such people,if some people of those don’t want to stick at work and some employers don’t want to employ such people then you can have has many work programs as you like you but they will ALL fail

    • 78
      Sir William W says:

      Quite right – all such programmesvare useless. At best they privilege one group of job-seekers over another. Governments should manage their own finances competently, enforce a free market against monopolistic business interests and then get out of the way.

    The internet trumps all newspapers, magazines and even TV stations.

    All newspapers are in decline and slow movers like the BBC are inching towards obscelesence

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.”
