NHS: The National Death Service – A British Dignitas

 

First Class Cost / Second Rate Service

The NHS offers us and continues to offer us second-rate service at a first class cost – something which is echoed in other bloated semi Government organisations such as the BBC, and most utilities, infrastructure and transport. HR, regulations and over management has weighed them all down.

In fact, anyone waiting in a corridor with their sick or injured loved one in a queue of trolley beds might think they have been placed in a time warp in the Blitz rather than well into the 21st century. So perhaps a third rate service?

This institution is a cross between a white elephant and a sacred cow, manned by unnecessary fat cats whose salaries could be used to pay for more Doctors and Nurses. But then what would be the point of that? There are no performance criteria for the NHS, it is just a factory line.

Did Dr Jane Barton Murder Her Patients ?

June 21, 2018

 

Is   Dr Jane Barton a perverted medical doctor  who mis-used her position to become a murderess just like the notorious Dr Shipman ?

It looks like it. She seems responsible for the deaths of many, many, NHS patients under her care.

She willfully prescribed lethal does of heroin to patients  who had no need whatsoever for such a dangerous, destructive, murderous drug.

When is this nasty, evil person going to be prosecuted for the murder of hundreds of her patients ?

The NHS is full of disgusting, incompetent, venal medical staff. The NHS is a sick joke.

The Truth About Religion 

June 14, 2018

 

I, like virtually everybody, just did as I was told when growing up and that meant going to church & listening to the rubbish spouted by priests and all those other religious idiots. 

As a child you believe in your parents and other adults, you believe they tell the truth about things and don’t lie like mentally damaged, demented, paranoid schizophrenics about delusions about dead people becoming alive in some imaginary World they call ‘Heaven’. 

And weird invisible people called ‘God’ & ‘Angels’  & ‘Saints’ etc roaming around in outer space somewhere with occasional visits to Earth which they are supposed to be secretly running every part of,  and in total control of absolutely everything that is going on on the planet – controlling every living creature from microbes to Man and every plant and even the weather.

So, children are simply ‘brainwashed’ into  believing in and going along with religion; children just accept it because simple evolution requires & makes children have belief in their parents. So if parents and other adults spew manic, lunatic gibberish about delusions of coming alive after death and all the other religious nonsense, children simply believe it to be true.

I, too used to believe in Religion because I was brainwashed as a Catholic for my first six years of life and then after that brainwashed by the  Catholic’s rival gang of deluded and mentally challenged Anglican ‘Protestants’.

All religion now just makes me angry & disgusted because of the incredible harm it causes – including some of the very worst violence and bloodshed, torture and murder the human race has ever indulged in. Religion is pathetic, deluded and nasty.

The worst religion seems to be that branch of the disgusting ‘Christian’ religion created by a fantasist called Mohammed or Mahomet a few hundred years after the idiot ‘Jesus’ or ‘Christ’ started ‘Christianity’.

This evil fantasy religion with it’s various rival ‘factions’ of ‘Catholics’, ’Protestants’ and ‘Muslims’ is currently responsible for wholesale murder and bloodshed and destruction of the lives of millions of people, and even whole cities in the Middle East.

Religion is disgusting and religious people are pathetic, deluded, inadequate, mentally backward fools causing immense suffering and harm.

THERESA MAY’S APPALLING, FASCIST BEHAVIOUR OVER WINDRUSH WEST INDIAN IMMIGRANTS

April 28, 2018

 

I have had a rough, very rough day with some very, very mindlessly stupid & ignorant local government issue/people –  i.e my local council behaving like a total idiot & demonstrating all that it pure evil and destructive about bureaucracy.

It’s very similar to the revolting Windrush issue currently making the news where Theresa May was  previously in charge of the Home Office and directed it to behave in an execrable way towards various immigrants & in particular West Indian ones from the 1950’s. What happened there demonstrates how nasty & dishonest government really is; it just takes your breath away really !

All Theresa May was interested in when she was the Minister in charge of the Home Office was her personal gain of political ‘Brownie Points’ & more voters for her political party. So her focus was entirely on  throwing any immigrant out of the country she could lay her hands on & she organised mobile advertising hoardings on trucks with  threatening messages towards ‘illegal’ immigrants, by which she meant anyone in this country without paperwork proving who they were. This might include virtually anyone and possibly  vast numbers of people who had lived here for decades or even been born here & lived their entire lives in this country.

The advertising was so implicitly racist too it positively takes your breath away with it virtually saying ‘go home you illegal immigrant black bastards; otherwise we’ll find you, instantly arrest you  and throw you out of the country immediately’. My wording here is almost exactly the same as the actual ads which did not actually have the word ‘bastards’ but it’s absence only made it more potently spring out of the ghastly, primitive and ugly fascist wording of the ads and the behaviour being demonstrated at Theresa May’s command.

What she did was immoral, entirely unlawful, nasty, brutish  and downright wicked, just like any good Fascist.  But like all typical bureaucrats she didn’t care at all. I’m just doing my job she said and lied to Parliament about it recently. But the Press found out she lied & now she is in big trouble about it and is busy making the current Home Secretary, Amber Rudd, who is now  in charge of the Home Office, take the blame for her own miserable, awful, appalling, dishonest behaviour.

But what idiot Theresa May did not do when she was in charge of the Home Office and it was neccessary to reduce the increasingly silly  tidal wave of immigration into the UK as it was rapidly getting out of control and would ultimate end up with about a billion immigrants from the most poverty struck areas  of the World all wanting to live in the UK & swamp it with their potentially limitless numbers, was for her to do anything intelligent at all in simply doing all the obvious things to control it. The UK has a ruddy great water filled moat around it which makes controlling immigration relatively easy if you apply a bit of common sense to the problem.

But, of course, common sense is something bureaucrats lack. Personal integrity is another thing it is essential bureaucrats do not possess as that would make it difficult for them to do their ‘job’ in the mindlessly stupid & ignorant way they frequently do.

Theresa May is an incompetent fool, a proven  liar, and a disgrace to Parliament and the Conservative Party.

Apparently, we used to have  population of about 60 million and gradually falling a few short years ago in the UK and it has now shot up to about 68 million as a direct result of recent uncontrolled  immigration.

With eight million more people to house it isn’t surprising the cost of housing has shot up too so that now  a home costs about four times ( in real terms) what it cost about twenty years ago. Homes used to cost about three times a person’s  annual income. Now it’s rapidly approaching twelve times in some areas. There simply isn’t enough housing to go around.

Inquiry into terminally-ill woman who died 11 days after agencies withdrew care

March 6, 2018

 

This case  from News Hound’s Blog below , together with other stories on this blog of the appalling behaviour of Government employees within the benefits system, confirm my own personal experiences of years and years of utter abuse and nasty, evil, usually completely unlawful behaviour, by these repulsive excuses of human beings who administer the Benefits System in this country. 

Collectively, they are group of truly disgusting, mindlessly ignorant and stupid people. But made  and shaped  and corrupted to be this way by the poisonous bureaucracy created at the top by self important idiot politicians who think their only job is to sit in Parliament cackling garbage and simply making excuses for the truly awful way the entire Government machine fails to function with even the semblance  of decency and common sense. 

These politicians seem to fail to grasp that they are supposed to actually be in charge of the Government machine. Government Ministers are supposed to be in charge of their various departments. But they don’t ever seem to make the slightest attempt to hold the senior Civil Servants underneath them to account and it is these dreadful Civil Servants who in turn employ the hordes of ignorant  and ill educated workers underneath them who are also unaccountable for their disgusting and frequently unlawful, often inhumane and lazy, carelessly wicked behaviour towards benefit claimants. 

A huge proportion of these mindlessly ignorant Government employees are so ignorant and badly educated it is hard to imagine they could ever be employable in any other job.

The entire Government administration machine is wickedly corrupt and rotten to the core. Don’t continue to delude yourselves that the UK is still the oh so admired British Democracy with the concept of fairness at it’s heart that has always been the envy of the World for it’s equality for every Citizen, honesty, lack of corruption, integrity, freedom and rule of law where every common man was equal under that law with his betters and all those that ruled. 

No longer !

Ultimately, the reason for all this can only be the population of this Country as a whole is now so badly educated people have no concept of how to behave towards each  other, no moral compass, no humanity, no ordinary human decency for which the British used to be so admired for around the Globe.

For, obviously, a properly adequate education for every single Citizen of this Country would eradicate the problem in an instant because a properly educated person would have been taught how to behave with honesty, integrity and decency.  These are the most important elements of any education. And they would therefore feel uncomfortable behaving in the idiot way these horrible Bureaucratic  Government employees behave.  

Shock and dismay over death of disabled woman

abandoned without care

BY JOHN PRING ON MARCH 1, 2018

INDEPENDENT LIVING

Listen

User-led organisations have reacted with shock and dismay to the “scandalous” failings of a council and care agencies that led to a disabled, terminally-ill woman being abandoned without any personal care just a few days before she died.

A council has been forced to launch an inquiry into the death of a terminally-ill disabled woman, after a public meeting heard how all her personal care had suddenly been withdrawn just a few days before she died.

Portsmouth City Council was shamed into acting after councillors heard how 18 different care agencies withdrew their services from Anne Savidge (pictured) on 10 December, because of claims that she had been verbally abusive to care workers.

In the following few days, the council appears to have abandoned her without any back-up personal care.

Although Savidge, who had no close relatives, continued to receive healthcare treatment from a district nurse, all the council-funded help she had been receiving with washing, dressing and toileting, and support with food and medication, was withdrawn.

Just six days later, she was rushed to hospital, where she died on 21 December.

The council was confronted with its apparent failings at a public meeting last week by disabled sailor Geoff Holt, a close friend of Savidge, who described her ordeal to city councillors.

Holt has since shown Disability News Service (DNS) an email sent to him by the council’s chief executive, David Williams, two days after his friend’s care was withdrawn and just nine days before she died.

In the email, Williams says that while the council was seeking to resolve the situation, “we cannot always guarantee meeting residents [sic]expectations”.

Williams is now commissioning the inquiry into Savidge’s death, and a spokeswoman for the council has so far failed to explain how that would be appropriate when Holt believes that the chief executive’s actions, and the email he sent, should be a key part of the investigation.

In his presentation to the council, which was discussing its budget for the next financial year, Holt described to councillors how Savidge, who had been diagnosed with terminal cancer last October, suddenly had her personal care cut off in December.

He described his friend, who he had known for five years, as “cantankerous, often short-tempered, considered by some to be rude”, but he said she had been given less than a year to live and was “in terrible pain and frightened”.

He said that all 18 care agencies that were contracted to deliver council-funded services in Portsmouth had suddenly withdrawn those services from Savidge, even though she had been assessed by the council as needing two-and-a-half hours of care a day.

DNS has seen an email from a council employee that appears to confirm these facts.

Savidge continued to receive healthcare from a district nurse, who dressed her tumour wound, but no personal care.

Holt said he had received numerous emails and text messages from his friend, begging him for help in the days before she was admitted to hospital.

He and his wife, who lived six miles away, had provided some emergency personal care – even though his wife was recovering from a shoulder operation and he is paraplegic – and Holt had written “in desperation” to the council, her GP, Solent NHS Trust, and to Savidge’s MP, Stephen Morgan, warning them that her life was in danger.

He said: “I was in disbelief Portsmouth City Council had no plan B to provide care.

“Anne sat there, mostly in her wheelchair, for five days, in pain, her bladder tumour now oozing blood on her clothes, no food, frightened to drink because she would wet herself, not even having her hands and face washed.

“She was dehydrated through not drinking, she was toxic with drugs, including morphine, not to mention the toxicity of her cancer.”

He added: “Of course it is not OK to shout or be rude at care workers. But Anne was never physically violent or abusive.  And she always said sorry.

“She was dying, she was frightened, she was in pain, she was alone with reduced mental capacity, and she had no one to even come in and fulfil her basic care needs.”

Holt also told the council that an independence support assistant from the council had brought her a leaflet explaining how she could sell her property to pay for residential care.

He told DNS this week that he believed his friend had previously turned down a council suggestion that she move into residential care.

By 12 December, he said, there had been “washing-up growing mould in the sink and soiled clothing and bedding cluttering up her home” and his friend had not washed for days.

Three days later, her GP visited and said she needed to be admitted to the oncology ward at Queen Alexandra Hospital.

Holt told the council meeting: “Adult Services were off the hook, she was no longer a social problem.”

She was admitted to hospital the next morning and died five days later.

Holt told the council that he was convinced that the lack of care “exacerbated and accelerated” the decline in her health.

He added: “I am in no doubt whatsoever Anne’s lack of care over that period was to blame.

“I would go further, I would say it was negligence and I would call upon this council to launch an enquiry into Anne’s death.”

Cllr Donna Jones, leader of the Conservative-led council, immediately agreed that the council should investigate the death.

Holt told DNS that he wanted answers to two questions: how 18 agencies could suddenly withdraw their services from a terminally-ill disabled woman; and why the council did not appear to have had a back-up plan or “safety net” when that happened.

He said he had felt that he owed it to his friend to highlight her case after she died.

He said: “I felt she was let down by the system. We had different disabilities, but I know how much care is important to me and I know the knife-edge that people with disabilities live on with their care.”

Morgan told DNS that he had replied to Holt’s letter and asked if there was anything he could do to help, but by the time he replied she had been admitted to hospital.

The Portsmouth South MP said the claims were “shocking” and added: “I am fully in support of an inquiry into what happened and what lessons can be learned by the city council and other partners.”

He said he did not know much more about the “incredibly tragic incident” than the details passed by Holt to councillors at last week’s meeting.

He said: “As I understand it, 18 different agencies had declined support. It is a concern to me if that is the case. I have said we need a full inquiry.”

Morgan said it was too early to know if Savidge’s death was connected in any way to the country’s social care funding crisis.

But he said: “As a new MP I have been pushing for increased funding for social care in the city and I am really concerned about its future.”

He has been in contact with Portsmouth Disability Forum and is arranging a focus group with disabled people to discover their concerns, including whether they are worried about social care in the city.

A council spokeswoman said in a statement: “At the meeting of full council on Tuesday 13 February 2018, it was agreed that an investigation into the care received by Anne Savidge should take place.

“Cllr Donna Jones, leader of Portsmouth City Council, has asked David Williams, chief executive, to set up an investigation which will be reported back to members of the city council.

“It would be inappropriate to comment until this investigation is complete and the findings have been published.”

She added later: “David Williams has been mandated to commission an appropriate investigation into the circumstances of this case.

“The organisation or individual appointed will decide the scope of the investigation and will actually deliver the work involved.”

Solent NHS Trust confirmed today (Thursday) that Anne Savidge had been one of its patients.

A spokesman added: “It is inappropriate for us to comment until the investigation is complete and the findings have been published.

“For now, we can only add that we are fully cooperating with the Portsmouth City Council-led investigation.”

POLITICIANS ARE IDIOTS

May 7, 2017

ALL politicians are idiots ! The reason being they ALWAYS have self interest of one sort or another – usually having to toe ‘party lines’.

A pompous, patronising  typical internet Troll says:

“Must have taken you quite some time to closely follow the entire careers of ‘all politicians’ to the extent that you can say that there’s not one single one who is doing a good job. Impressive”.

So I thought  I would reply as follows.

“Obviously I am making a generalisation about politicians, a sweeping statement as a form of shorthand to articulate a view held by, probably, the vast majority of people –  that politicians in general blunder around causing a lot of problems and fixing few.

But perhaps you don’t actually like people being able to implement ‘critical thinking’ after all because you would rather control all their own thought processes yourself. You must be a bureaucrat as well as a Troll !

The fact is, if you waved a magic wand to eliminate all politicians and government and for the purposes of this argument this magic wand would also have to ensure every person always behaved in a decent and moral way, then a vast number of problems produced by politicians  would disappear overnight.

All wars throughout history, without exception, have been caused by politicians. Politicians continuously interfere with the daily lives of ordinary citizens in ways which are quite poisonous.

I have personal experiences of this relatively ‘benign’ UK State abusing government machinery and  behaving in quite disgusting, destructive ways. These mechanisms are constructed as part of every government machine and are abused in every State. In this UK relatively benign, ‘democratic’ State, the abuse is at a much lower level that a truly nasty dictatorship like Syria, Hitler’s Germany, Saddam Hussein’s Iraq etc. But, fundamentally, there is absolutely no difference between any State except the degree of abuse politicians heap upon those they rule.

But politicians like more and more power and the more they get the more they abuse it. Turkey’s Erdogan had sufficient power to have very tight control over all aspects of Turkey’s population, but that wasn’t enough to enable him to do as he pleased, so he recently did exactly what all dictators throughout history have done & manipulated government machinery to give him dictatorial powers –  exactly the same as all those other idiots throughout history.

But the thing is, the most interesting reason for politicians doing a lousy job – ALL of them –  and I don’t need to follow the daily activities of all politicians throughout history to know this – is that the people they surround themselves with and to whom they delegate decisions to, corrupt that decision implementation process.

Every time a decision is delegated further down the line until it finally reaches a spotty faced teenager resonsible for implementing that decision, it often becomes a sick joke because a process similar to Chinese Whispers has occurred, combined with a total lack of proper control over that person at the end of a long chain who ends up doing more or less what he pleases with a total disregard of what is lawful, right and proper and originally intended by the politicians at the top of the tree.

Usually that person at the end of the chain of command will do what is most in his own best interest. Often that means that he commonly expects a bribe    to enable him to do what he should be doing by law without payment being required.

I have experienced of that right here in the UK and in the armed forces where a person of considerable authority expected a bribe from me for him to process the bureaucratic process in question. He didn’t get his bribe but he incurred an extra cost to the State of at least £100 000 as a direct result of his corrupt behaviour.

A another great example I have some personal experience of battling with is this. It is a really good example of what I am talking about right now.

The UK Parliament not long ago decided to produce  an Act of Parliament to fundamentally change a little corner of law which belonged entirely in the distant past & needed updating to reflect our modern World. This change was to say that the fathers of children would now be legally recognised as those children’s fathers even when they had not been actually married to the mothers of those children.

Previously only fathers who were married to the mothers of the father’s children were automatically recognised legally as the child’s father. If the same couple were not married and produced children, the father had no legal rghts over his children whatever unless he went to a court to prove he was the father and before DNA testing that would usually  have been impossible.

So, the Act of Parliament actually said that any father of a child who is named as the father on the birth certificate  within one year of the birth of that child would now be considered in law to have all the full paternal rights that any married father normally had.

And this is where things went wrong with that chain of command thing. The Minister of State in charge of this Parliamentary Bill decided, in his carelessly ignorant & very stupid way, to subtly change what Parliament had  actually ordered in it’s Parliamentary Bill.

There is a Parliamentary mechanism for this kind of change to take place whereby when an Act is passed, it may not come into law until a later date for the sake of convenience – sorting out bits of bureaucracy etc. And previously devious legislators have produced a mechanism where Acts of Parliament can actually be altered, a bit, possibly, sometimes, if appropriate,  providing those slight alterations do not contradict the intentions of that Act of Parliament.

But, Government Ministers, being the crafty, devious politicians they are, take this opportunity of mis-using the intentions of the rules of legislation by bending and contorting those rules to suit themselves and their personal agendas. Such is the shifty, dishonest, process of politics.

In this particular case, the Parliamentary Act intended all fathers whose names appeared on birth certificates within one year of the birth to have those paternal legal rights. But the Minister of State when signing the Act into law by means of  something called a Statutory Instrument, wrote an alteration to the Act by saying  the Act would now only apply to the fathers of any children born after the date of the new Act being signed into law.

Thus at a stroke of his mind-numbingly stupid and ignorant pen  every single existing father was instantly dis-enfranchised and the intention of this new Act of Parliament was utterly thwarted as far as all existing fathers was concerned.

And this meant for me that the moronic and very stupid and nasty officials at the passport office refused to issue my son with a passport, although the new law did actually clearly say these new rules would allow him to have a passport without information about his mother as a father was now allowed to apply for a passport when he had never married the mother whereas previously unmarried fathers could NOT apply for their childrens’ passports. I would just have to provide extra proof of me being the father rather than a birth certificate; and I could do this, no problem.

But, no, those braindead and very stupid passport officials just saw this as another opportunity for them to abuse and behave extremely badly towards members of the public needing to use government services. They were really, really abusive towards me. They were disgusting actually. Really bad.

My son ended up losing a free foreign holiday someone offered him & I ended up paying for air tickets which were not used. The Moronic passport officials were totally confused by this new act of Parliament and combined with their nasty, bureaucratic control freakery and strong arm tactics and mis-information just point blank acted unlawfully in refusing my son a passport.

They also threw me out of the building and threatened me with violence if I didn’t leave; why ? Only because I had told them I had taped the entire kafkaesque, nonsensical drivel they had spouted at me. The utter idiot I had said that to actually ran away in a panic shouting ‘security, security help’.

These are the sort of idiots that run all our public services now.

The failure of the politicians who are supposed to be in charge to actually take charge and ensure every chain of command is adequately managed and controlled to stop corruption like this and make things works as intended and efficiently, is the cause of the problem.

For example, the NHS is falling apart because it employs thousands and thousands of useless, lazy, incompetent people who get away with doing an apallingly  bad job putting people’s lives at risk, causing injury & death all over the place while they always blame someone else for their neglect, including ‘a lack of money’ for the NHS. But if the incompetent managers of the NHS stopped wasting so much money by imposing massiveily stupid bureaucratic nonsense on everyone,  there would be vastly more money available to actually improve the quality of the NHS healthcare  for everyone. Everyone within the NHS is busy blaming everyone else as the cause of them doing a lousy job.

Again, I have some personal experience of this whereby a few hundred pounds bit of necessary expenditure on something trivial, ends up costing tens of thousands of pounds because of the halfwit idiocy of the bureacracy which ‘the system’ requires everyone to obey.

The reason the NHS is such a mess is that the Secretary of State responsible for it – Jeremy Hunt, the ‘Health Minister’ is a prat. He makes no attempt whatever to take charge of the NHS and just continues to let the Chief Executive of the NHS do as he pleases in the usual incompetent way while that CEO in turn lets the managers immediately underneath him behave like halfwits too, and so it goes all the way down the line to the spotty faced teenager at the bottom behaving like a lazy dimwit simply because nobody, but nobody has the capacity to take charge of anything in the  NHS properly.

These are just some examples of how it is that politicians are collectively doing a lousy job. And as far as I can see those politicians I have closely observed who I have appreciated/admired for doing a better job than other politicians, have ALL also often done a lousy job of certain issues under their control because they had to obey the unwanted political influences forced upon them by others.

This constant ebb and flow of unwanted political compromising and watering down of decision making is the very essence of politics. I’ll scratch your back if you’ll scratch mine. It is also the process which produces a tortuous, writhing morass of strangulating bureaucracy that stifles all parts of the real World and prevents people  just getting things done properly & decently and creating wealth”.
