Labour Have NHS Cake and Eat It

In two hours’ time the Kingswood Labour Party will be celebrating the selection. And what would be the best way to mark the occasion, today of all days? How about an NHS Birthday Party, a dark hour cheered up with “with drinks, nibbles, and Birthday cake”. Cutting the cake, twisting the knife…

  14. 14
    nellnewman says:

    I do hope so – let militwit keep him as shadow health secretary until 2015 – it will keep reminding us all about the mid staffs scandal, the deaths of those poor children at morecambe, the liverpool care pathway and the 13000+ others who died during labour’s 13 years of terror.

    Would you vote them back in power?

  15. 15
    Vote Lib for (as yet undeclared) expenses says:

    That depends. Quite a few of our leading contacts in the party have pert buttocks. Misters McCluskey and Crow and I are willing to give em another go.

  18. 18
    Andy Burnham Spins the NHSlaughter says:

    Look! Vote Labour and get value for your money on the NHS. When you get treated for an ingrown toenail you will get your tonsils out! How about that for value for your money? So what if we slaughter pensioners? The State won’t have to fund them anymore. Job Done!

  19. 19

    Bob Diamond Geezer says:

    Lets be under no illusions that Guido is for a private health service. Now anyone foolish enough to think this is a good idea need only visit the USA where you see people walking round with club feet and hernia’s hanging out for want of treatment and where getting cancer means pretty much selling anything and everything no matter what insurance you have. So come on Guido come clean and openly declare you desire for a private health service then we can have a proper debate as to what the country wants.

    They’re surely not playing politics with the NHS?

    Vote L/L/C for (as yet undeclared) expenses says:

    All agree with you, even UKIP. If Guido has lost faith in a national health service then perhaps he has been looking at Abbot or in the Mirror too much! We just need a disciplinarian to run it. And I don’t mean all this working time directive, union-protected tripe. Let’s get the people in it happy but also pushed. Pushed like everyone else.

    O'Bummah says:

    I pledge that I shall ensure that the USA strives to match those magnificent death rates found in the Engerland, National Hospital Service.
    Our death rates in Medicare are pitiful compared to what the limeys are achieving.

    We must try harder or we will have a nation of senior citizens to care for whilst the Scothchland-Irish have killed off all their dead wooders.

    So from today I urge all patriotic US healthcare professionals to withhold food, water and sanitation from patients.

  31. 31
    The BBC says:

    Repeat after us:

    NHS Death Pathway: Official Logo of the Labour party 1997-2010 says:

    Burnham and his criminal accomplices killed a lot of peoples mum, dad, grandad and granny.

    All for the greater good of course and all to ‘manage’ health costs.

    Decent treatments are pricey you know, so have to be rationed to the ‘important’ people only.

  35. 35

    But they are lying SCUM Nell. They take the stand that no resignation is a victory for Labour’s record on the NHS.

    If people want private health care & can afford private health care let them have private health care. – it reduces the load on the NHS.

    Fishy says:

    I’m not.

    I’m for an NHS that is caring efficient, patient focussed, clinician led – not run by crap, recycled political appointees from the local party who know fuck all and have never done a proper day’s work in their lives.

    I’m for an NHS that cares more for its patients, not totalitarian the NHS edifice or the likes of Andy Burnham and Gordon Brown, their tractor figures, phoney outputs and dishonest success, while people are lie dying in their own shit.

    Not too much to ask is it?

    What’s wrong with private healthcare and personal responsibility?

    If someone wants to go paragliding or take up a dangerous sport like base jumping, then they should pay an excess as with any other high risk insurance policy.

    If they want to get pissed out of their brains every week, then people should pay more for increased medical service use, similarly smokers and others.

    There is nothing righteous about getting other people to subsidise your lifestyle choices by force of law and government theft.

    Bob Diamond Geezer says:

    Yes you can get swift treatment in the USA if you can pay for it – and boy do you pay the moment you walk in the cash register is ker-chinking. Think of how lawyers in the UK work – charging you for everything including photocopies and then apply it to the health service. Every plaster, every bed pan, every drip, every cup of tea, every pill, every scan, every consultation etc etc all on the bill. No insurance or insurance up to the max (Cancer), credit card reached its limit then out the door you go….if this is what you want then fine. Most of us want a well run NHS..

  62. 62
    Bazinga! says:

    So watching the BBC news and listening to Burnham on Radio 5, not once did the BBC point out the 13,000 deaths happened UNDER LABOUR.

    For Burnham to throw out the line that the Tories were using the dead for political reasons is a joke, this camp left wing freak has been using the 96 at Hillsborough for political purposes for years.

    The BBC still spinning the lie that Labour are trusted on the NHS, since when?

    Also, the BBC ignored the report highlighting that McFuckwit gave out orders not to bring bad news to Downing Street.

    Burnham is up to his scrawny scouse neck and he fucking knows it and no amount of verbal blow jobs off the BBC will save him.

    Everybody keeps saying that the 2015 election is cameron’s to win or lose. Well I think that’s wrong – with militwit and that shadow cabinet in place – dave could be daffy duck and we’d still vote for him because he’d be far superior to anything labour could offer!

    People are not being fair on Burnham.
    1. Some of those people who went into hospital were not totally healthy and might have been sick which could have counted for their demise.
    2 Targets / tractor stats of unbelievable advances of improvement came from the top. Think Blair, Brown etc.
    3 His internet connection / Ipad / telephone / carrier pidgeon/ post were inefficient.
    4 His mascara got into his eyes.
    5 The BBC said all was good and safe in Labour hands clouding the picture
    6 His……………..
    Okay. He’s a f*ck up. Lynch the barsteward

    Sir John Thomas named as new Lord Chief Justice

    “Although in a time of reduced resources significant change must continue, the judiciary will play its leading part in ensuring that justice is delivered fairly and efficiently,”

    Most do not care how efficient or fairly justice is delivered. All we want is the justice part. When individuals are up against a tax funded organization and fighting for their, and others lives, efficiency is redundant.

    We never asked for anything except the right not to be killed or injured. We did not care how badly the judges insulted us, or threaten us, we just wanted justice.

    But your system could not deliver that.

    We still await justice. I suggest you get that bit right and the rest will follow easily.

    Just spotted this on the Biasedbbc.org site.

    Stratton last night, Norman Smith today, all going in to bat for Labour and giving the bastard Tories a good kicking for lifting the drains.

    WILD says:

    Norman Smith the Chief Political Correspondent for the BBC News has just said on News 24 that the Tories attacking the last Labour government over the way they ran the NHS is just partisan politics. He then spent the next 10 minutes asking a Labour MP for her view – with not a single critical question.

    The next BBC news “package” was about the BBC paying over 5 million for a few superficial reports. They asked Chris Patten for his thoughts. Again no critical voices, although the reporter mentioned that some Tory MP’s had been complaining. The reporter ended by saying that BBC has never been more popular.

    There are times when the BBC pro-Labour (and anti-Conservative) bias is so blatant it is almost funny.

    What the hell are you talking about?

    We let in 500,000 new migrants each year, all entitled to free everything, without having ever paid a single penny in to the system.

    You want to lighten the load, then only allow in people who there is a clear need for and can fund themselves in entirety for ten years, without recourse to the state.

    Of course anything remotely sensible such as this, is illegal under EU law and the LabLibCon would scream RAYCIST!

    Err, clue for the hard of thinking: Insurance.

    insurance [ɪnˈʃʊərəns -ˈʃɔː-]
    1. (Business / Insurance)
    a. the act, system, or business of providing financial protection for property, life, health, etc., against specified contingencies, such as death, loss, or damage, and involving payment of regular premiums in return for a policy guaranteeing such protection
    b. the state of having such protection
    c. Also called insurance policy the policy providing such protection
    d. the pecuniary amount of such protection
    e. the premium payable in return for such protection

    The problem is the BBC don’t see it as being biased. Batting for Labour is just natural to them.

  84. 84
    Carry Hole is a porcine homunculus says:

    Yep all those things cost money, lots of it.

    The american problems are 2 fold are regulation caused.
    1) insurance is bundled with employment rather than directly purchased thanks to americas worst president FDR.
    2) hospitals do not turn away people, they have to treat anyone who turns up, sticking mainly insurance with extra costs.


    New innovations are fixing this though.

    If people cannot afford to buy healthcare individually then they cannot afford to buy it in a group, especially one that subsidises poor health choices as the NHS model does.

    The NHS is shit and should be scrapped. I have experienced both excellent private care and dismal treatment rations from the state.

    You best saddle up your unicorn to ride to the well run NHS.

    The trouble is dimwit Cameron thought he could get these partisan hacks on his side by talking fluffy talk at them regarding ‘progressive fairness’ and all the other lefty buzzwords.

    Whoever advised him on this approach, should have been sacked within 6 weeks of the last GE.
    As for Cameron, he should be sacked for persisting with such utter bollocks, in the face of all evidence.

    The BBC should have been, target one, day one, cut them off by the balls with a voluntary subscription model and installing aggresively anti left bias management.

    Now the damage is done and it’s way too late to complain about the Biased BBC.

  101. 101
    End the BBC fee says:

    I used to like the BBC. But if I watched even 5 hours a week now I’d be surprised.
    But if it was subscription for around the price it is now, I’d probably have it.
    Definitely if it cost say £100 a year just for BBC radio and BBC 1 BBC 2 then that would be fine.

    End the licence fee. The BBC can get by on a subscription model. It will have 95% of the country signed up. It would just need to axe it’s overspending and it’s management layers and get with the real world. Like sending maybe 20 journals and techies to Glastonbury instead of 420. You know, like every other media organisation in the world.

    (a) “Attack directed against any civilian population” means a course of conduct involving the multiple commission of acts referred to in paragraph 1 against any civilian population, pursuant to or in furtherance of a State or organizational policy to commit such attack;

    the smartest guy in the room says:

    Guido claims to be against all politicians, but of course this thread on the NHS proves this to be untrue as he is yet again taking the line Conservative HQ tells him to take.

    Guido is not anti-politics, Guido is a tory stooge.

    The general public is a strange creature. They hate authority, yet yield to it. They hate being told what to do, but are compliant, hate politicians but largely follow the laws they make and pay the taxes they charge.

    The British have been conditioned over many decades to respect a particular type of leadership, the genesis of which is traceable back to when they were peasants and lorded over. They have a respect for a Hitleresque type of leader, such as Winston Churchill and Margaret Thatcher, both fascistic type leaders. Even Blair had Hitlerite tendencies, and they loved him too, for a while.

    The problem for the Tories, and the reason they will be a one term government, is because their leader is not as strong as Blair or Thatcher or Churchill. He is a fairly rudderless chap with no conviction of what to do other than attack the poor in order consolidate the wealth of the rich.

    The submissive and masochistic public are sensing this weakness and lack of conviction. They want somebody who is going to boss them and tell them what to do and who will carry out vicious repercussions if they fail to follow orders. The polls demonstrate this weird dynamic between the public and their political masters, as the Tories spitefully attack the poor their ratings go up.

    The problem for the Tories attack on the defenceless is that you can only attack a cripple so many times before the crowd starts to turn against you and their perverse masochism transforms into moral indignation and outrage.

    The Tories, in their bid to consolidate their riches and the riches of their friends by attacking the poor and disabled, will overreach themselves and hand victory to the opposition.

    And Guido wil have yet again backed the losers.

    Oh well.

    Point of Information 2 says:

    There are plenty of folk who can be trusted, but not many of them happen to be in positions of power at present.

    The only reason Dave cannot be trusted to deal with this for example is because it is becoming increasingly obvious that he and the opposition are singing from the same hymn sheet, and the party political aspect – mainly usefulness of the crimes in framing the 2015 campaign, are too useful. This is actually another nail in his credibility as a leader in many ways.

    The civil service are up to their armpits in blood on this as well, and seem very reluctant to admit that or deal with their own rotten command structure.

    This is one of the reasons why the ICC was set up. When a country goes this bad on an issue of this magnitude, both in horror and scale, that country cannot repair itself.

    The biggest hypocrisy is that one of the arguments Bla!r gave for invading !raq was because of what the leader there was doing to his own people. By this reasoning we should probably expect a UN contingent to show up soon in order to take over some administrative functions in the country and perhaps those involved into custody.

Blair couldn’t wait to get his face on the telly to talk about Ed Moribund and the unions in Falkirk. Where is he now, this is important, it’s British blood on Labour’s hands. But silence or blaming the Tories for having the temerity to mention that Labour put ideology before health care.

    Hospital Trusts having to meet Targets and to upgrade their Status failed in the very care that was expected by patients .Similar to Governments they are Administrators whereby money is the byword and not Qualified in care or compassion.

    So andy ‘ the grim reaper’ burnham and al ‘ I couldn’t care less’ johnson knew full well there was incompetence and plain maladministration in the NHS during their years as labours Ministers of health.And then there was patricia ‘ I’m going to make a fortune out of this’ hewitt.

    So what did they do?

    They covered up – they terrorised staff with threats of job loss to shut them up, offered massive payments to silence senior staff and threatened the rest with sanctions if they spoke out.

    Had they been honorable men , burnham and johnson and hewitt would have resigned by now.

    Just wait for the no win no fee lawyers to arrive.

    Burnham, Johnson and Hewitt hopefully wont know what has hit them.

So why would anyone favouring a decent, affordable, humane private system (which the NHS is definitely not) choose the American one? We shouldn’t be blaming the current incompetent Labour party too much for the omnishambles which is the NHS. The real fault is with the shit-for-brains who created it.

    “I’m anti-spending and anti-government,” crows David, as mobility scooter-bound Janice looks on. “The welfare state is out of control.”

    “OK,” I say. “And what do you do for a living?”

    “Me?” he says proudly. “Oh, I’m a property appraiser. Have been my whole life.”

    I frown. “Are either of you on Medicare?”

    Silence: Then Janice, a nice enough woman, it seems, slowly raises her hand, offering a faint smile, as if to say, You got me!

    “Let me get this straight,” I say to David. “You’ve been picking up a check from the government for decades, as a tax assessor, and your wife is on Medicare. How can you complain about the welfare state?”

    “But after lengthy study of the phenomenon, I’ve concluded that the whole miserable narrative boils down to one stark fact: They’re full of shit. All of them. At the voter level, the Tea Party is a movement that purports to be furious about government spending — only the reality is that the vast majority of its members wouldn’t be here without it!!”

    As for being in my twilight years – scary isn’t it? when you have labour in charge and their priority is to introduce killing measures like the liverpool care pathway that doesn’t bother to consult patient or relatives before NHS staff proceed to kill you off in the most painful way possible!!

    I obtained a student apprentishship which then led to HND certificate and institute membership.
    I then went on an open university course to improve my managerial skills,what a let down that was,all I heard was sociallogical craptap from left wing crap tutors,maslows pyriamd and all that rubbish.
    All my life I have paid into an NHS system which has been trumpeted by the LIEBOUR lot as the envy of the world.
    Why then today are we seeing this liebour lot running for cover as regards what was going on under their watch when people where dying under obcsene circumstances and they knew about it and did nothing.
    So many people dead because of target driven gaols is an absolute disgrace in a modern country.

    AllyCampbell should be pistol whipped and hanged says:

    The problem is that Thatcher in no way advocated distorting palliative care into the practice of letting infirm older patients die a degrading death by starvation / dehydration in unsanitary conditions.

    If anyone can put a credible line a reasoning together which can lead to these developments happening from a commercial or corporate ideology I would be enlightened. Common sense tells me that if you are running a health care system like a business you will be aiming to provide good levels of care for your patients, and would want to minimize their time in your facilities.

    Killing off the patients prematurely or keeping them in a bed for a few weeks covered in their own excrement whilst waiting for them to die of dehydration does not make good business sense.

    Nicholson himself is a confirmed socialist, actually communist having once been a member.

    The only error that could be leveled at Thatcher, although she herself would have had no real say in this, is that she could have been more vocal about his background and questioned his suitability for the position he occupied at that time in the civil service.

    If Nicholson had been purged back then, some of the horrors may not have occurred more recently, when his ideological cohorts were in political power.

    QUOTE “The heated exchanges in the House of Commons followed an investigation of 14 trusts with high death rates in 2010-11 and 2011-12, led by NHS England medical director Prof Sir Bruce Keogh.” UNQUOTE

    Notice the dates It all started in 2010 according to the BBC up front and in the first paragraph.

    “In the Commons, Mr Hunt argued that problems had begun under Labour, which was in power until 2010, and that it had tried to “muzzle” NHS whistle-blowers.”

    Notice the word argued. Not a fact then that it happened under Labour and throws even smoke up to mask the truth.

    Now seriously imagine the BBC headlines had this been a Tory government in power for 13 years.

    Matt Taibbi is about as honest and straightforward as a boomerang.

    He’s a tendentious prick whose articles in Rolling Stone purport to report on what the MSM refuse to (from a Leftie perspective, of course).

    This is because what Matt Taibbi does is not journalism, but commentary, and his journalistic standards are suspect at best, i.e., he never “breaks” stories. He has never done any “reportage” which wasn’t a hit-piece. This is what he was hired to do: cut-and-paste other people’s research to fit his personal narrative, and go out and engage in confirmation-bias coverage and interviews. He has made a career of taking the piss, in both the spiteful-advantage-taking sense and in the mockery sense.

    Sir Bruce’s inquiry looked back as far as 2005, when Labour was still in power, and five years after Tony Blair had promised radical improvements to — and increases in spending on — health care.
    As such, the report is a devastating indictment of Labour’s perennial claims to being the party of the NHS, in whose hands it is uniquely ‘safe’.

    Andy Burnham will not rest until all hospitals offer the same caring service as Basildon, Romford and Stafford. Remember who bankrupted the hospital trusts with corrupt PFI contracts and accentured the computer systems for patient records and performance monitoring. It was not the Tories. It was not Burnham either but until he recognises who did it it and his own, albeit modest, contribution to what followed, he is not fit for office. I am not a fan of Hunt, look at the mess he left to Maria Miller at DCMS (e.g. BDUK), but at least he has recognised the mess he has himself inherited.

    I am not fan of Jeremy Hunt, just look at the mess (BDUK, Leveson et al) he left to Maria Miller to try to clean up at DCMS, but at least he has recognised the festering horrors he has himself inherited.

    P.S. I am awaiting a good parody of Boyle’s Olympic “tribute” to the traditional “Nightingale standards” of training and performance monitoring that New Labour terminated.

    More the fool I have proved you to be then!

    One has to start somewhere – if one has the backbone evidence – and I have not noted any substantial portion of your backbone evidence over the past year on here eh – save your constant smears – which of course begs questions of what you really do know for fact?

    There! Fixed it for you.

    For anyone interested here is the question asked in the poll that put UKIP on 7%.

    QB. The Conservatives, Labour, the Liberal Democrats and other parties would fight a new election in your area. If there were a
    general election tomorrow which party do you think you would vote for?

    The heat of your passion is getting too much, especially when the soaring temperatures are more than enough these days for the average soul.
    Yet, where would the world be without a daily SC versus BW or the GF versus OJ blog sniping confrontations, keeping us poor spectators on the edge of our seats in anticipation, [yawn], you pretending you really mean it…..
    In a season of same sex marriage why don’t you 4 old queens just kiss and make up.
    We know you all enjoy the game and the thrill of the chase. It might be stimulating for your little grey cells but it’s playing havoc with mine ;)

    Traditional Marriage in the U.K. has been totally devalued — destroyed.

    It’s My Legacy — I’m so proud. How about all you LGBTs out there carry me through London at the head of a special Pride March to celebrate?

    I will get my reward at the 2015 election.

    Interesting point about the British and strong leadership. In my opinion no free adult person should need strong leadership except perhaps in war. Adults should be able to evaluate information, search for information, think critically and reach their own independent conclusions. Strong leaders can be dangerously wrong in their thinking (Hitler and Stalin being extreme examples).

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.”
