Rich’s Monday Morning View


  1. 1
    Peter Grimes says:

    And his first defence is to say it’s worse under the Tories.

    The sheeple will believe him, too!

  2. 2
    Burgers are bad for you says:

    The Care Pathway has been closed for temporary repairs.

  3. 3
    The Right Honourable George Osborne Mp says:

    I think we’ve got a very clear message, a loud and clear message that Britain cannot let up in dealing with its debts, dealing with its problems, cannot let up in making sure that Britain can pay its way in the world.

    Zoetic Enquiry

    So many of my friends have been dying that I want to make sure that there is someone I know, somewhere, anywhere, who is still alive.

    Accordingly, if you are still alive could you please nod twice. However, if you have become recently deceased, then one nod shall suffice.

    Officer Dibble says:

    He’s busy making political capital out of the issue by accusing the Tories of making political capital…

    Ah! Monika says:

    Not wishing to interfere but could you do the same please

  10. 10

    Do the letters upon the yellow ochre background give some sort of clue as to the identity of the person depicted?

  11. 11
    Sir William Waad says:

    Who’s it meant to be?

    Oh – they’ve written the name – sensible!

  12. 12

    Sorry, could you say that again? I am deafened by all these dratted Daily Mail fly-pasts.

    Man with Parkinson's nodding continuously says:

    But do you return for every funeral?

    Andy Burnham says:

    I kiss myself in the mirror. Mwah! I’m GORGEOUS!

  15. 15
    I fuckin luvs Marxist spunk i does, Stephanie says:

    I fully agree with all anti Tory attacks/soundbites, (no matter how ludicrous) which are made by the Marxist Labour party heroes.

    Andy Burnham is not a cu’nt in any way whatsoever

  16. 16
    Old Blind Pugh says:

    We know the Cons agenda and their feelings and thoughts about the NHS are in spite of Cams declarations, but we are not really sure what Liebore’s position any more after the last lot under B’Liar/Broon, they both seem to be peeing in the same bucket, things were not all that rosy under them. The next thing might be, £10 every time you visit a GP or every time every time you go to ER

    McSHANES laptop emporium ? says:

    “I left warnings about Stafford ” yes you tit , after you left office !

  18. 18
    Bluto says:

    The BBC coverage of this is very carefully worded to defend Labour’s record and make it ambiguous about which government is actually to blame. I was quite disgusted by the blatancy of the pro-Labour propaganda in this report from our supposedly “independent” broadcaster:-


    The BBC seems to forget that not the whole country is in love with Labour as they are. Over 10 million people voted Conservative in the last election – more than those who voted for Labour – but the BBC chooses to ignore that fact.

  19. 19
    I fuckin luvs Marxist spunk i does, Stephanie says:

    BBC heroes over at Radio Five Labour doing a phone in on ‘is a benefits cap of £500 fair?’

    Please phone in to rage against this cruel and spiteful Tory policy!!

    Old Blind Pugh says:

    Well that has spoilt Monday morning’s guessing game Bill

    Good morning sir , had your sombrero out this past week ?
    Those nudist beaches must be buzzing by now

  22. 22
    AngryEnglishJon says:

    Not carefully worded in my opinion. It is, as per usual the Bolshevik Bullshit Company using a bucket of whitewash and a big brush. How a dolt like Burnham can attain a cabinet position baffles me.

  23. 23
    nellnewman says:

    Labour = ‘The NHS – Safe in our Hands’ !!!

    What they meant was the Unions controlling the NHS were able to continue creating thousands of managerial non jobs, so building their own power base, at great expense to the state whilst the patients suffered and died and none of them cared.

    So when is andy’brassneck’burnham and aljohnson going to be charged with murder?

  24. 24
    Ian Bunghole Smut says:

    Nigel Farage is not a gay icon. Nigel is purely one dimensional!

    vote ukip

  25. 25
    Ed MiliwiMP uses misdirection to save planet Burnham from the NHS death camps says:

    Crosby gives Miliwimp the
    runs, Ed is shit scared of him!
    Labour’s misdirection tricks are
    just as dodgy as their Evil
    Spin. Ed wants to save his
    Shadow Health Monster from
    having to grow a moral spine
    and do the decent thing by
    Look over there Andy? Crosby
    is ‘avin a fag and he is using a
    shalegas lighter. By tapping
    into the pc bollox like smoking
    & environment then maybe no
    one will notice that Labour
    have turned the NHS into
    death camps.
    The media treat us like fools
    with scapegoat electricks like


    Journalists should do their job
    properly by ditching the
    scapegoat journalism and
    making Burnharm and Labour
    accountable for their Evil
    actions. The public deserve
    better than this shoddy
    journalism. Ffs.

    If I want health advice I won’t be looking for it from Labour. Their nhs policies stink of reeking corpses. Labour are busy spinning on graves while journalists look for a scapegoat to stop Labour from doing the right thing by taking responsibility for their mismanagement of the nhs. Shame on you!

  26. 26

    Death is a wonderful, beautiful, marvellous thing and Andy Burnham has done so much to promote it.

  27. 27
    Jail time warranted says:

    Andy’s becoming a little angry at this constant line of questioning in interviews.
    He’s lucky it’s only TV interviewers…it should be the police

    Is it him out of OMD?

    your in charge of the countries finances, stop this HS2 & HS3 fiasco if the railway companies want it, let them pay for it

    Ian Bunghole Smut says:

    mind you, if I batted for the other side i would want to kiss him. How about a nice poem from Albacore?

    liblabcon are politicians, you cannot trust them

    Nigel is not a politician, so you can trust him! vote ukip and die happy

    IDS says:

    I you use the BBC interactive map ( Seen Elsewhere ) it shows that the poorest will be driven towards the Labour strongholds of Northumberland and mid-Wales :)

  32. 32

    Good morrow, my liege!

    I am actually doing some work at the moment but will pop back tomorrow to keep myself fully abreast of the current situation and to weigh things up for consideration.

    How are you this fine and warm morning?

    13,000 deaths. No-one charged with causing death by negligence and no organisation charged with corporate manslaughter.

    WHY NOT???

    Axe The Telly Tax & Religion & Kill All Ecoloons says:

    It’s not fair, it should be a lot lower, say no more than two thirds of the minimum wage and then it should be lowered every year.

    then watch mr burnham change his make-up as he evades responsibility for the mess

  42. 42
    Andy Burnham- Shadow Health Monster. says:

    Is my mascara running? No it bloody well isn’t. Spinning corpses for elections is perfectly acceptable. It was all Crosby’s fault and he is creating a policy to force parents not to put sealt belts on children in cars and creating policies that legalises selling alcohol to toddlers as he is a Director for the AlkyTots company Disgraceful!

  43. 43
    G'day cobbers, it's Lynton Crosby says:

    Just coordinating with Kate on how much bad news the Coalition can bury under the tsunami of flummery over the baby. I reckon we’ll go for all the Tory bad news but let Cleggover spin in the breeze.

  44. 44
    Lord Stansted says:

    More honest – the gas chamber pathway

  45. 45
    The NHS does not care says:

    I have my suspicions from my own parents’ hospital deaths and also a friend’s father. All three had the severe dehydration and no drink available talked about in Burnham’s pathway to death. Is it possible to see the medical notes left by doctors 5 years ago.

    What I do know for certain is that it is a horrible way to die and professional to layman pressure was put on us as visitors that we knew nothing and our parents were not in pain. I still do not see how having a raving thirst is without pain.

    LLabour are definitely culpable

  46. 46
    Red Ed Millibandwagon supports Burnhim I mean Burnham says:

    Because we are infallible like the Pope – that’s why.

    Tom Watson is thick

  57. 57

    All those Philistines who voted for the top ranked definition really suck.

  58. 58
    Bluto says:

    The Fabian society promoted eugenics and it looks like the Labour party promoted euthanasia for the infirm elderly. That seems entirely consistent with their genocidal immigration policy to replace the English people with ‘diversity’.

    The deaths require in-depth investigation. I suggest you report your suspicions about the deaths of your relatives to the police. Everyone should.

  59. 59
    Andy Burnham- Shadow Health Monster. says:

    Rhymes with Crime. Manslaughter or to be more PC, Personslaughter!

  60. 60
    Forget about reports there ought to criminal charges brought says:

    The first thing that politicians, the media and the public need to accept is that the NHS is NOT sacrosanct and VERY far from perfect but anyone pointing out the errors in care and the poor standards of nursing;high mortality rates,hospital infections, incompetence and downright criminal neglect is subject to vitriolic attacks by health unions.

    My local hospital where I live has had a reputation for poor care and high mortality and high hospital infection rates(they are always closing wards to visitors) for years and local people know to insist not be taken there but be taken to another hospital a few miles away in calling an ambulance. Mid-Staffs is NOT an isolated case far from it.

    As a case in point….Both my mother’s elderly mother and my own elderly father suffered from absolutely appalling care and standards in another nearby hospital in a major City(NOT mentioned in the report)l and whilst I cannot say that they died as a result it certainly didn’t help. The wards were dirty, my mother in law was covered in her own urine etc and there was massive overcrowding. MY mother in law was given aspirin when her doctor’s notes clearly stated that she should not be as she was allergic to it. The nurses(either agency or in actual fact just auxiliaries didn’t seem to care or actually know what they were doing and the actual care fell to the family when they visited …you could never find a nurse let alone a doctor at weekends)Nurses seemed to think that because they had a degree that actual nursing was beneath them. Some couldn’t even speak fluent english !!THIS whilst Labour were in power NOT recently so let’s cut the crap from Burnham shall we ? And I haven’t an axe to grind against him or Labour I would say the same if it was the Tories responsible

    Everyone in this report should at the least be sacked without pay-offs or pensions and in some cases charged with gross negligence and if found guilty imprisoned. It’s the only way to stamp this out

    There is standing joke locally that instead of the mission statement rubbish over the door of my local hospital it ought to be replaced with “Abandon Hope all ye who enter here(especially at weekends)

    It could only be the train bosses that could think this was normal.

    This is what happens when the future is specified by Luddites.

    Labour does not do democracy says:

    Where would politicians stop if they managed to make it law that a certain group of workers should register how they vote?

    The whole point of a democracy is that it is between the voter and the bballot box..One of the reasons why postal votes are anti democratic.

    A GP on £150,000 + private work says:

    What splendid weather! Just come back from a tour of the Western Isles, letting the new Aston Martin soak up the miles. She performed brilliantly, of course and I was fresh as a daisy when we got back to our Georgian Rectory late last night.

    Fiona’s from Scotlandshire, so I said we’d better make a visit before I need a passport :). It helps the wee wifey speaks the lingo as there was no problems staying for lock-ins and sampling the malts.

    Managed a round at the Loch Lomond course while her indoors was pampered at the spa – I just wonder how many botox injections will be needed to pay for it!

    Anyway, the locum Dr Mafumi doesn’t seem to have killed anyone in my absence, so that’s a result! I don’t think his record back in South Sudan is 100%…

    Handycock (Teen Fondler) says:

    He is just a politician that’s all. This Government are making serious mistakes not covering up for the public sector anymore – Police, NHS, and especially Local Government etc etc. The system in the country has always run brilliantly as a result of integrated corruption between, the Government, local politicians like myself and the public sector and a few suborned private contractors. All this does is greases the wheels of bureaucracy and makes a few of us, like me, very very rich. To start exposing this corruption by this Government will end in tears, it is just not the way business is done. Off to my villa in Spain now . Boaz.

    So, all these calls for Burnham to resign…. are we talking merely to resign his position of shadow health minister or should he go further, like a by-election level of resignation?? Just curious, you see. I’m a tad unsure as to whether the former would be sufficient.

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.”
