The Lunatics Are Back In Power! Who You Gonna Call?!

This could be the Coalition Governments Poll Tax says Dr Kailash Chand OBE is a GP and chairs Tameside and Glossop NHS [The Guardian, Joe Public Blog] Before we blame the Dave & Nick Show it was:

 

  • “The idea that competition breeds excellence and market forces make everything more efficient is a myth anyway. Two successive governments have now shown that simulating a market ethos in the NHS might bring blips of success, but it carries the potentially fatal consequence of producing erratic behaviour from otherwise sensible people.”

 

  • “Competition between hospitals on price, and all hospitals having to "liberate" themselves from what he sees as the dead hand of state control. As Milburn says in Polly Toynbee's column today: "'Any willing provider' means anyone can set up shop and steal easy patients: the result will be anarchy. What a naive assumption that you can leave everything to the market. Price competition changes everything."

So boys and girls, “Who You Gonna Call?!”

Is Labour so different? After all it was pushing the Welfare State into private hands, even if those hands were tied a bit.

Reading the Guardian, see links, you have to say, “The Lunatics Are Back!”. The Dave & Nick Show, tickets only at £100,000 a piece if you don’t mind, and did you go to the right schools, hob-knobbed with the right ‘class’? Oh goodie come on in, have you met…?”

That is one reason I am voting Yes

 england-flag-03 and for myself.

Time to shake some power from the Etonian & Etonian Wannabe Boys before we all get sucked into the Underclass as described by Frank Field, who “identified four forces of expulsion as having created an ‘underclass’, separated from the rest
of society ‘in terms of income, life chances and political aspirations’.”

  • unemployment
  • widening class differences
  • the exclusion of the very poorest from
    rapidly rising living standards
  • and a hardening of public
    attitudes

So as I asked, “WHO YOU GONNA CALL?!”

A Change Of Scenery

Thought I would cheer my blogger blog site up and use a new template. Thank you peeps for providing such nice free templates.

Were are we now in the 21 C? Still have poverty and inequality of wealth. Millions are dying of starvation, thirst, disease through the corruptive governments and indiscriminate marketers.

The privatisation by outsourcing the UK social welfare, cuts, cuts, and even more cuts being the mantra of the day. There was a reason welfare systems came about – something to do with not only for those who could afford it?

UK troops are still deployed in Iraq, Afghanistan, as well as Africa, Brunei, Canada, Cypress, Germany, Gibraltar and the South Atlantic Islands. Is it not time to let those countries get on with their own lives? Of course our troops have helped them, especially Iraq and Afghanistan, to build better infrastructures, hospitals, schools, and have helped to ‘keep the peace’, time to move out now.

Obama has not proved to be a president of great worth, I predict he will not get elected for another term. The Republicans will get in, not sure under whom though, take a look at The Contenders. Though I am a Brit I would like to see any of these three get in:

  • David Petraeus
  • Bobby Jindal
  • Jed Bush

As an outsider I’d like to see take a step is Ron Paul as his views are very different – Libertarian.

Why not the darlin’ of the Tea Party club, on theirs and hers good days, Sarah Palin? She seems the least trust worthy of the lot to me. But I will keep on watching and learning more about the TP RW Woman.

So what about the Dave & Nick Show – who would I like to see replace the Posh Toffs – I’m not sure really they are all pretty measly. No Thatcher or Baldwin amongst them. I look at Labour and to be honest think, so what. Liberal Democrats, you’re having a laff, Conservatives, well, to be truthful I just do not trust them. Lets see what happens further down the road…

Just out of interest I wonder who my USA choices would align themselves to if they were British – would they automatically veer toward the Blues?
