NHS: The foxes have control

"Back in 2010, the BBC reported the Coalition’s reforms of the NHS as 'handing funding powers to GPs'.

And now they are being told to hand it to the private sector. These corporations will determine what the NHS will be like for future generations. 

The foxes have control."

Read this and weep if you imagined that your local GPs had control of commissioning services and hospitals in your area. They might have done, briefly; but that's all about to be swept away...

Linked article is long but well worth knowing about:
‘The whole point of our NHS reforms,’ David Cameron said, is ‘to put the power in the hands of local doctors, so that they make decisions based on wha...

If you've got a vote, please remember to use it

I wo'n't tell you who to vote for. But I'll hope you'll join me in voting Labour. I'm in England but, again, I *hope*L those of you in Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland will vote for Labour or another socialist/left-leaning party.

But whichever party you're voting for, today, please use your vote; and use it for the party that both your heart and your head lead you to. Good luck, everyone.

I'll never vote Labour again, as long as Millitwat and Ballsack are still knocking about! And if the Exit poll is true? They shouldn't be for much longer...😉

NOT A Waste Of 5 Minutes!

What a sight!
At 598 meters (1962 ft) below the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Louisiana, ROV Hercules encountered a magnificent sperm whale. The whale circled Hercules several times and gave the cameras the chance to capture some incredible footage of this beautiful creature. Encounters between sperm whales ...

Game of Cuts - Winter Is Coming For Councils

Winter is coming for the Northern and Midland Cities!  Lord Ned Starp’s pleas for fairer funding for the people of the Northern Cities are met with mockery by the King. At the same time the Southern Cities prosper... 

And, when you've seen the video, please read on:

THE REAL STORY BEHIND GAME OF CUTS

Since 2010 local government in England has lost more than 40% of its core funding. Urban authorities, largely in the North and Midlands, have lost the most money as a result of these cuts.

By March 2016…

* Manchester will have lost £197 million
* Liverpool will have lost £202 million
* Sheffield will have lost £159 million
* Newcastle upon Tyne will have lost £91 million
* Leicester will have lost £86 million
* Sandwell will have lost £89 million

Some of our poorest communities are facing the greatest cuts, putting more people in poverty. Local government funding must be fairer so councils can continue to provide vital services to those that need them.

Special Interest Group of Municipal Authorities (outside London) within the LGA (SIGOMA) is a grouping of 45 urban authorities in the Northern, Midland and South-Coast regions of England. SIGOMA’s membership compromises of 33 metropolitan districts and 12 major unitary councils with similar characteristics. We are the collective voice across these regions and embody the opportunities and potential of the communities who live there. The combined population of SIGOMA councils amounts to over a quarter of the population of England and its member account for over 25% of English local government expenditure.

Thanks to +Neil Howard, I have a new favourite singer and band: Daiqing Tana's Haya. Sublime.
 
Just because! If you need something calm & beautiful on this Friday the 13th watch and listen.
This is the AMAZING voice of Daiqing Tana and (in English) the "Haya Band". There is mournful sound of the Mongolian 2 stringed "Morin Khuur" (apparently incredibly difficult to master) in there too. These people are from Mongolia, and make some of the best music I have heard fro a long time, a lot of it is "traditional". have a dig around YooToob for haya band or her name to find more, but as most of it is in Chinese, it is not as easy as you may think!
Enjoy!

I've heard a lot of throat-/overtone-singing and there was a short while when my sister and I could just about hold a four-tone chord between the pair of us – lost the knack, though, through lack of dedication and flitting on to the next thing. I love the way looking for one thing leads one on to something fresh and adds to the list of 'loves.'
Cheers, m'dear.

DWP website's new file – plan to cap Access to Work fund

So much for promises that departmental cuts will not affect disabled people. This, apparently, is 'compassionate conservatism.'
The DWP has revealed that it is looking at cutting a scheme that helps disabled people into work – just hours after the Conservatives won the election.

UN Human Rights Chief urges U.K. to tackle tabloid hate speech, after migrants called “cockroaches”

"GENEVA (24 April 2015) – After decades of sustained and unrestrained anti-foreigner abuse, misinformation and distortion, and in the wake of a recent article in the Sun newspaper calling migrants “cockroaches,” the UN Human Rights Chief on Friday urged the U.K. authorities, media and regulatory bodies to take steps to curb incitement to hatred by British tabloid newspapers, in line with the country’s obligations under national and international law"

A complaint against the Sun newspaper, in relation to a piece by one of its columnists on 17th April 2015, has been reported to the Metropolitan Police by the Society of Black Lawyers (a UK NGO) for investigation under 1986 Public Order Act to see whether or not the article amounts to 'incitement to racial hatred.' In addition, Zeid Ra'ad Al-Hussein, UN Commissioner for Human Rights, has asked the UK authorities to look at the wider question of incitement to hatred by the tabloid press and other sectors of society.

I know I'm a day late sharing this but it's still worth reading Mark Steel's take on recent developments in the UK General Election campaign.

Background for overseas readers: the Conservative Party (leading 'half' of the outgoing Coalition Government – the Liberal Democrats being the other, smaller, 'half') appear to have 'encouraged' 100 Business Leaders (they're Very Important so deserve the capital letters) to sign a letter praising the Conservative Party's way of doing things. In response/retaliation, the Labour Party's supporters have signed a letter in opposition – their signatories being small businessmen, workers on low wages/zero-hour contracts, nurses, carers, and all sorts of people. That letter started with 100 signatures but, when I last checked, had over 2,000.

Anyroad, Mark Steel is a fine satirist and I commend this article to your reading organs...
What an important and potentially decisive moment that was in the election, when 100 wealthy business people came out in support of the party that’s controlled and funded by wealthy business people, and was founded by wealthy business people, and always promises to cut taxes for wealthy business people.
