Tories Call For Burnham to Resign

Last night around 50 Tory MPs were briefed by Jeremy Hunt ahead of today’s statement on Bruce Keogh’s mortality review. One attendee tells Guido they will call for Burnham to resign for “failing to defend patients”, accusing him of a “catastrophic failure” and insisting his position is “untenable”. The Tories will claim “these hospitals failed on their watch”, that Labour “ignored the warnings” and “instead tried to cover things up”. One Tory MP warns Guido “we really want to do the business today”. Justice for the 13,000…

UPDATE: Ominous:

13,000 dead and somehow Burnham is portrayed as the victim. Pull the other one…

    Burnham always was a typical New Lab. chancer – this story does not surprise me one bit….I wouldn’t give him a pi**-up in a brewery to organise but the BBC give him loadsa. coverage. Wouldn’t you just know it. Ghastly self-righteous little boy and I don’t just mean this latest bit of news.

    Good morning, I’m James Naughty-naughty and this is the Toady program.
    Jeremy Hunt is with me in the studio…

    “In 2001 Labour was warned of alarmingly high death rates in 25 NHS hospitals and told inspections by health watchdogs appeared ‘fundamentally flawed’.

    more than 20,000 lives could have been saved if Labour Health ministers and the NHS had paid attention to alerts about higher than average mortality rates.
    The then Health Secretary Andy Burnham had a list of hospitals where he warned there were alarming numbers of patient deaths but he did nothing and deaths continued…”

    So, Mister Hunt… Why did the coalition allow this to happen?

    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.

    do the tory mps really want to press for him to resign? Think of the consequences. He could be replaced with someone better (certain) and establishing the principle of resigning for being an incompetent pillock could be a disaster for Deadman Stiff, Gobby Gove and many other useless ministers.

    Another Engineer says:

    Burnham has to go, for the complancency and denial if nothing else.

    They have to be careful throwing statistics around though – obviously some hospitals will be ‘below average’ merely through chance, and proving any particular institution is significantly worse is hard.

    I have witnessed poor care in hospitals at first hand, and I doubt that it is localised to only a few places. The discussion should be about the whole rotten system and not just individual hospitals.

  34. 34
    Ear, Ear says:

    First of all, of course there are incidents of poor care in the NHS. There would have been from 1997-2010, these should not happen, and they can not be defended. However, the figure of 13,000 avoidable deaths is spurious:

    Let me say this very slowly so that all can understand. Mortality rates vary, from region to region, from hospital to hospital, from bed to bed. When combined and divided by the number you will get an average mortality rate. Obviously, in any sample, a good proportion will fall below the mean average. This is INDICATIVE of poorer performance, especially COMPARED to the those with lower rates than the mean.

    But that is it! It’s COMPARATIVE and not ABSOLUTE. It may well be (indeed, IS) that mortality rates are lower across the board than in previous years, as the NHS IMPROVES.

    One of the reasons why the NHS is broken down into trusts is that these comparisons can be made. The flip side, indeed it is part of the Conservative Party ideology with the NHS (and mistakenly adopted by Blair) is that some trusts WILL FAIL, compared to others, and thus (market forces) the stronger trusts will predominate. Add to this “local decision making” in which the ‘local decision makers’ bear the blame for failure – but as we can see governments cannot abrogate all responsibility!

    This, with the 50% fact 50% fiction destruction of the CQC last month, IS the biggest political stitch up of all time. Unfortunately, the Tories have learnt that you can have failing (economic) policies and still scare and spin the electorate into falling into line. I’m wondering what will happen if a focus group suggests that the rounding up of unter-menschen would prove popular?

    If there were justice for the 13,000, then this fucking mascara’d little arsewipe would be in prison. If there were “justice for the 96″ then there would be about another 10,000 Scouse cvnts in there with him.

    auth0r says:

    As an NHS consultant whose specific warnings were repeatedly ignored by managers and politicians throughout this period, I can say that Burnham, Milburn and Hewitt do really have blood on their hands.

    The management were told to ignore patient care and to override professional advice if that meant that arbitrary and meaningless targets were achieved. It was Stalinism writ large and thousand of patients suffered appallingly and unnecessarily. Frail, elderly people being discharged in the middle of the night was one small repeated example.

    And, ah! Got it now!

    Comes the day after the decision / media coverage on the Liverpool Care Pathway* so that the public will conflate a statistical figure of 13,000 with individual cases of (let’s face it, what is in reality) patients intentionally being left to die.

    *Obviously LCP was not a perfect system, and there are clear instances of seriously flawed implementation. But show me a perfect system?

    Right Full Rudder says:

    Number of prosecutions of…

    * Hospital managers & staff for causing thousands of deaths with their neglect and incompetence — ZERO

    * Police and social services for ignoring hundreds of reports about muslim child grooming gangs for years because of PC paralysis — ZERO

    * BBC managers and producers for turning a blind eye to prolific child molesters in their organisation and attempting to cover the issue up — ZERO

    * Banking executives for causing the financial crisis with their reckless investment strategies — ZERO

    UK has a culture of ZERO management responsibility for anything no matter what the consequences of their actions or inaction.

    Tories and Guido in cahoots again on misinformation campaign (AKA its was then what done it). Burnham was only in post for under a year so hardly time to be responsible for all the ills of the NHS. But don’t let that get in the way of a nice deflector campaign. Lots wrong with the NHS, many problems not helped by target culture (though it did slash many waiting times) a lot being made worse by Jeremy Hunt.

    Sarge says:

    Dear anon – a new low for the Labour Party – death has been politicised; Burnham is an irrelevance. If he is proven to have suppressed requests to solve this problem he needs to be held to account.He should understand this as he has been on the Hillsborough case for a long time.

    Nothing at all to do with politics;everything to do with justice.

    Burnham’s evidence to the Francis inquiry dhowed thst he had no clear ideas about what was happening in Staffs- yet he bower and others are promoted. The nhs lost sight of responsibilities of care and burnham and others did little to clean up a callous indifference to patients. It beggered belief that deawood miliband reappointed him

  71. 71
    Another Engineer says:

    Exactly.

    If you only argue about a set of (possibly) bad hospitals, pretend you are going to fix them, and argue about who is responsible, you are missing the point entirely, and you will fail to improve anything.

    It is the whole system of the NHS which needs removing, not just a few managers here and there.

    Like the lovely people targeted the grave of Stoke Hospital campaigner Julie Bailey’s mother, who died at the hospital in 2007?

    Ms Bailey said: “I’ve been getting this abuse for a while, about three times a week. I think it’s just a small group of people. But the final straw came when they started desecrating my mum’s grave. That really is unforgivable. So I’m going to be leaving Stafford by the end of the summer.”

  75. 75
    Point of Information 2 says:

    When folk realize that this is not some party political fighting – ie The reason why call for resignation now is that investigation to this point has enough evidence that Burnham and others are guilty – then it may go to a few byelections.

    Burnham and Labour are missing the point that if Burnham falls on his sword now then the governments job of brushing this back under the carpet will be easier.

    If Burnham remains – and the support is there is Labour only because those others who are guilty are mulling their options – this issue remains hot and will be harder to draw a line under.

    The way this will pan out may be: keep it going over Summer and Burnham quit quietly if public wake up properly. Keep spin against Tories until Labour credibility gone. Labour may prefer to damage brand NHS to prevent privatization but it is not clear if they would do that at the expense of 2015 which is the ultimate cost they would pay. They may be looking to throw that election anyway given the divisions existant in the party we can see now.

    Commander P R Johnson on Mars flight 247 says:

    It’s not really suprising that Labour spin doctors (and the obedient BBC) are pulling out all the stops on this issue.

    Labour have already lost the public’s confidence on running the Economy.

    They have lost the argument on benefits and are in the process of a screeching policy u-turn to align themselves with public opinion.

    High youth unemployment suggests Labour’s education policies bred a whole generation of unemployable teenagers.

    Voters are waking up to the strain that Labour’s open door immigration policies put on Schools, Housing, Hospitals and Jobs.

    So if Labour lose public confidence on running the NHS as well, they really are going to be stuffed.

    As a care home operator we were told, off the record, that we took too much care of our residents and, as a result, they “lived too long”. That Labour were going to push for care in the community as ……..yep…. you guessed it they would ……… saving millions.

    When you have big government you get cold hearted jobsworth bureaucrats who work to targets; you also get creatures of the system who bully their way into positions of power; Stalin, Gordon Brown, to name but two.

    Hospitals are frustrated by their local social services who protect their local authority budgets by way of bed blocking surgical hospital beds with the elderly.

    This is the real crime of Labour.

    What a difference 24 hours make. All the huffing and puffing of the Tories to blame labour and there is nothing in the report that says it was a problem. Labour had already put in place procedures to deal with these issues.
    one hospital trust has now set out to find more nurses. having shed around 6000 this Tory led government needs to start looking at itself.

    Q. Labour go on about “there should be no top-down reorganisation of the NHS” but did the last Labour government install a top-down culture of bullying within the NHS?

    No. the basic idea at the time was good. What happened much later could be called corruption, as happens in all organisations the size of the Red Army.

    BTW, when I was much younger Wilfred Pickles went around children’s hospitals with his show. the number of children with TB hip, diptheria, polio, and other diseases was truly enormous.

    Not now.

    Why is it so hard to set up a decent Health Service? Germans managed very well at the time when I worked there for some years: AOK basic care (like NHS) and back-up from superlative insurance systems. Worked well for us. Maternity was truly excellent, just for the dad’s breakfast, never mind the superlative treatment of mother and baby.

    Too many superlatives, sorry about that. But you got the drift, I expect.

    Ah, yes, good point. I may have been focusing rather too narrowly on the NHS and so missed the possibility of a ‘bigger picture’ consideration. Bet it don’t end there either!

    If Burnham is responsible, then Cameron carries the can for the number out of work, Hammond is responsible for the state of the Armed Forces and Osborne is reponsible for the ever-increasing burden of debt which ratchets up every month.

    Your comment is logically bankrupt.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
