Change of Direction at Conservative Way Forward

Guido hears movements are afoot at right-wing Tory group Conservative Way Forward. The once influential Thatcherite organising faction has been a bit down in the dumps of late, with moribund campaign events and a rubbish party at Tory conference. It needs a kick up the backside and it sounds like they may have found the person to do that. A new team has taken over led by Donal Blaney; Guido’s learned friend at the other end of the red phone and Chief Executive of the right-wing madrassa, aka the Young Britons’ Foundation. This should upset a few dour types…

      death rates per 100,000 per year

      Gun violence (Jamaica) – 47
      Gun violence (US) – 10.2
      Gun violence (UK) – 0.25
      Car accidents (Egypt) – 42
      Car accidents (UK) – 3.59
      Suicide (Europe) – 3.5
      NHS Staffs – 160 (a minimum estimate assuming Stafford hospital is one of 4 in the county – these are excess deaths)

      Living in Staffordshire you are almost 4 times as likely to be murdered by the NHS as a Jamaican is likely to be shot in Jamaica.

          This is an example of how fucked up we are says:

          Despite hundreds of deaths at this state sponsored death camp , not one solitary person has been prosecuted, on the plus side a hospital spokesperson gave an interview in which she stated that “lessons had been learned ” and I’m sure the relatives of the victims were reassured and got consolation from the fact that she also managed to get the buzz phrases “working with/in the local community”, “multi agency”, ” our colleagues in our partner agencies” , into her statement.

          • Doctor and the Medics says:

            An 84 page report by President Obamas health advisor Dr Donald Berwick was hushed up by Labour 4 years ago.The report,which wasn’t published at the time, warned that patient care was being neglected at NHS hospitals because it was too focused on targets.
            Which Labour Health Minister took the decision not to publish the report and ignore it’s findings?


          • Murder or Genocide says:

            So, T’Graph report quotes Professor Sir Brian Jarman as saying that about 4200 deaths at 5 NHS ‘Trusts’ were just the tip of the iceberg.

            That is about 3 a day over a four year period, or 1 every 8 hours.

            Just how big is the iceberg ?

            MoG – I dare say the graph and others dare not tell the truth … for what they have conspired to conceal from the public.

          • Murder or Genocide says:

            I do not think it is totally off the wall to suggest that this policy was run in order to kill off the older generation who would be able to point out to the younger why the EU was a bad idea.

            It also cuts down the pension bill.

            Unfortunately it also destroys trust in a valued national institution and may yet preempt serious civil unrest.

            Also, unless this is prosecuted, murder and manslaughter have just been legalized: There is no moral argument against at this point in time.

      National Socialism: ‘Totalitarian movement led by Adolf Hitler as head of Germany’s Nazi Party. Its roots lay in the tradition of Prussian militarism and discipline and German Romanticism, which celebrated a mythic past and proclaimed the rights of the exceptional individual over all rules and laws. Its ideology was shaped by Hitler’s beliefs in German racial superiority and the dangers of communism. It rejected liberalism, democracy, the rule of law, and human rights, stressing instead the subordination of the individual to the state and the necessity of strict obedience to leaders. It emphasized the inequality of individuals and races and the right of the strong to rule the weak. Politically, National Socialism favoured rearmament, reunification of the German areas of Europe, expansion into non-German areas, and the purging of undesirables.’

      Seems to fit in with many of the comment here.

        It is time for people generally to commence with self organizing in anticipation of some basic services vanishing, and for those who are not bent, unlikely to be corrupted and electable to start stepping up to the plate.

      Well he is a crook.

      There is nothing he will be able to do, and his massive pay package is more to do with foreknowledge of just where Sterling is headed, and also what real inflation is going to look like over the next few years.

      UBS downgrading all of their previously classified ‘conservative’ clients to ‘aggressive’ is one big tell of what is coming: That being the bond market collapse. Anyone who has significant holdings of bonds should seriously consider switching that position.

      IRS payouts likely to be capped, and banks protected from claims stemming from LIBOR rigging.

      One thing which is guaranteed: Sterling will significantly devalue, and iffy trade tariffs / protectionist monetary policies may start popping up as the race to the bottom in the currency markets resume. UK has not seen GDP reduction following current monetary policy since 2008 which is one thing Osborn needs to be held to account for now if he intends to continue this policy.

      The real question is, how long before the financial war turns into a real one.

      2 Years or 5 ?

      I wouldn’t mind if the BBC Gove attack was being done to help further the education of children, but it’s being done purely to try and damage Gove and the tories.

      In fact, the most telling quote by the LibDems and Unions and the BBC, was that having exams which were harder would:
      “hurt the life-chances of people who were not academic enough to pass the exams”

      (yes, they really did say that, they really did say that people who have no academic ability should be able to pass an academic exam)

      ie they’ve explicitly admitted that they don’t want anyone to ever fail an exam, because it makes the teachers look bad and because they don’t want anyone to ever have a qualification that differentiates them from anyone else.

      I fucking hate the BBC, and the libdems and labour, but to be honest I hate the tories even more at the moment for allowing all this stuff to happen and to not stand by their principles and have the balls to do something about it all.

        I’ve told you. It’s Gay Marriage that is the most pressing social issue, not sorting out the collapsing education system.

    A four-eyed cuunt who calls himself robinson has just said on the Toady program: “When the Tories joind forces with labour to demand a rebate”.

    Oh so it was labour who wanted this rebate, I never knew that.

    Liebor spin or Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaat.

    I think this food scandal has been going on long enough. It is time that we banned meat from outside the UK unless it arrives here still on the hoof.

    The directors of the firms who sold horse meat in their proucts should all be in prison and their personal fortunes confiscated.
