Is this why the NHS needs lots more of our money?

Monday blog

I don’t believe you

First, just a quick observation. It was reported this weekend that 4.9 million people in Britain have Covid. Obviously they didn’t test everybody, so this figure must be based on some kind of ONS (Office for National Statistics) sampling. So, if say there are 300 people living in your road, about 22 of them are supposedly currently infected with Covid.

Sorry, I just do not believe this.

The expensive NHS inclusion industry

Now here’s the main subject of today’s blog. It was too cold to go for a walk on Sunday afternoon. So, as one does, I decided to look on the NHS website for job vacancies which included the word “Inclusion”.

Here are just a few of the jobs which came up. I’m not even going to comment on this, it’s such a disgrace when there are over five million people on NHS waiting lists. But at least this gives us an indication where much of the extra billions raised by the increase in National Insurance to ‘save the NHS’ will be spent.

    I suspect it is the same in all the state controlled activities – police, schools, civil service. In private industries it is going the same way because of government imposed regulations and employment laws. It is the spread of suffocating socialist ideology everywhere as our freedom of speech and personal responsibility are slowly taken away from us. Your first comment sums it all up because this is being done through the spread of misinformation.

    This is nothing new.

    Apparently, the NHS has been trying to get equal numbers of female GPs as males for more than forty years by training more females than males in the medical schools.

    The NHS staff itself is now around 75% female. Apparently, GPs are now so well-paid that they can work part-time. As you might expect, most of the part-timers are females. Therefore, two female GPs have to be trained as males just in order to maintain an equalised service.

    The Labour Party doubled the pay of GPs and gave them a standard Monday to Friday, 9-to-5 working week. Our GPs get over double the pay of EU GPs, even in the major EU countries.

    During those 40 years, the education system has been dumbed-down to an absurd extent in order to achieve sexual and social equality.

    Apparently only a minority of female students study the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) subjects, which are required to study medicine. Therefore, to achieve sexual equality, males, who have a natural attraction to the STEM subjects, are going to be overlooked in favour of the females who apply. That in itself lowers standards, which are probably lowered further by passing female students, which no doubt is taking place, just in order to increase their numbers.

    The disgraceful number of deaths and injuries of mothers and babies in at the Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust (SaTH) that are currently making headlines is a case in point. The scandal has been going on in that trust for 20 years.

    Apparently, if all of the claims for damages against the NHS were paid out immediately instead of having to go through the courts, the NHS would be bankrupted several times over.

    It is not pride that comes before a fall, it is ideology, the queen of which is equality. Nature always chooses hierarchical order-of-rank solutions in order to develop and evolve. It is decadent/degenerate humans who choose ideologies that bring about decline and decay.

    Why oh why do people like David always have to focus on exposing woke nonsense which wastes billions every year while reducing the quality of medicine that the NHS actually delivers ? Why can’t you just go with the flow ?

    I remember, ( it was actually the last thing I
    remember ) during the peak of the Covid epidemic, standing outside my front door, celebrating, with my Ethiopian neighbours, or was it the Somali’s ?, from next door but one, the work of the NHS, by hitting myself over the head with a cast iron frying pan, so hard, that unfortunatley, I passed out.

    I awoke, with an escaped but rescued Afghan dog licking my face as it had already devoured the pool of blood that had previously formed around my skull bone. I immediatly cried out for the aid of an NHS Diversity and Inclusion Manager. Stuff the Equality bit I thought, this is an emergency !

    Sure enough, within a few days, the ambulance appeared driven by a bearded southern type , heavily tattood and wearing a sequenced ra-ra skirt with a pair of Wellington boots. At first I thought it was an SNP spokesperson looking for my vote but as we drove long through the day and night , bound for Spain in an effort to beat the bed blocking by white old age pensioners, I soon realised that even though he could not speak English, I was in good hands.

    Ethnically Marginalised as he was, we soon bonded round the campfire that night as we cooked our road kill over the fire together, his knuckles bathed in moonlight.

    I think these NHS Diversity Officers , especially the ones working with Etnically Marginalised staff, work bloody hard and their salaries are a pittance compared to most Civil Servants. I would gladly see them paid double.

    David, I would ask you this,
    As the health needs of our community change the NHS tries hard to adapt, and I try to change with it. What do you do ?

    I intend to find myself a good witchdoctor.

    Fortunately, I have used the NHS a couple of times in my life, non of which involved a serious illness. Once when I was a teenager with acne. The GP prescribed antibiotics that did not work.

    On another occasion, for some unknown reason, only my left hand swelled up and looked infected. The GP only got the solution right because I told her that allergy testing that I had done privately established that I was allergic to some artificial sweeteners used in drinks.

    The GP suggested that I only drink water, tea and coffee as an experiment that worked. Experiments of my own established that the cause of only my left hand swelling up and looking infected was the sweetener aspartame in lime juice. I asked her way only my left hand was involved and she said that allergies are very strange and peculiar conditions.

    We are going to have to live as healthily as possible from now on because we can no longer trust what Big Pharma is going to try to get into us for anything.

    Apparently there is already a pill from Pfizer that can be used against Covid. Meanwhile, we are being told that well-tested alternatives, such as the antiviral drug Ivermectin and others that are cheap, are useless. Suggesting any of the alternatives is labelled as misinformation and gets you cancelled on social media.

    Always follow the money with Big Pharma.

    Do not worry,we must be very close to a financial collapse,when all this nonsense just becomes the irrelevance it deserves to be.”Ethnically marginalised? That is a new one to me,there’s no stopping their ability to create when it comes to taking money from the taxpayer

  • Hardcastle

    Oh by the way.I would not mind eating that the most ethnically marginalised at Guys are white British,but we are not allowed to posulate such things,are we? Sounds like a perfect job to create division and strife and divert employees from the job they are paid to do.Unless that is the purpose of your supposed employment.
