Mistakes

Something big is coming from Scotland, the fall-out from the Scottish referendum is profound. After the Scottish referendum the establishment sighed with relief, but by immediately breaking their vows the Westmonster made the Scottish people fizz with rage. The result of this has been predictable, so predictable in fact that the neoliberal gits in Westmonster were unable to see it. Its going to break Britain: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/labour-faces-prospect-of-losing-more-than-30-seats-in-scotland-at-the-next-election-poll-reveals-9828786.html Looks like it could be the kick up the arse needed to break Labour. The establishment only won the referendum through scare mongering and vote rigging. The result has been coming for some time. Inspid nebbish Murphy wants to lead the Labour party in Scotland. Murphy might try, but the Tory-lite dingleberry is not going to inspire. As he says rather humbly: “We know we make mistakes. We know we’re not going to repeat them. We’re going to stand with that sense of pride and passion and we’re going to change our party and bring our country back together.” http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2014/oct/30/scottish-labour-snp-general-election-poll Its very stark on this map: http://wingsoverscotland.com/every-one-a-gem/#more-62761 Boring bum Murphy may have working class roots, but this Blairite speaks for the powerful: http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2014/oct/31/jim-murphy-can-working-class-street-fighter-save-scottish-labour Look at the dufus urging against a shift to the left: http://www.newstatesman.com/politics/2014/10/jim-murphy-rejects-blairite-label-cautions-against-shift-left He really hasn’t got a clue and could be as useless as Gordon Brown. It has snide bastard Guido Fawkes veritably salivating: http://order-order.com/2014/10/30/scottish-shadow-minister-we-are-in-a-dreadful-position/

Brilliant Serwotka understands a massive mistake has been austerity: http://leftfootforward.org/2014/10/austerity-still-wont-balance-the-books/ For their adherance to austerity and their inadequate response to the government, Labour deserve to massively lose in Scotland. In the words of Serwotka: “Austerity won’t balance the books, as George Osborne is currently finding, because the books can’t be balanced on the backs of the poor – austerity will only inflict more pain.
“Any serious economic analysis is not a necessary part of the austerity agenda. It is simply the cover for implementing a ruthless free market agenda that would not otherwise be possible. Part of achieving that agenda has necessitated shifting the debate from one about inequality, unaccountable and deregulated financial institutions to the alleged flaws in the public sector and the people who rely upon it.
“The logic is inescapable. If you concede the ground on austerity, as Labour has, then as sure as night follows day you must capitulate too on scapegoating the poorest and least electorally potent. Any political party seeking to impose austerity on the scale envisaged will seek to justify its attacks – and that inevitably leads to the demonisation of those on austerity’s receiving end.” The seriousness of the prroblem is that filthy DC has got his sums wrong, so that not even half of the austerity measures will be implemented by 2015: http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2014/oct/30/david-cameron-spending-cuts-claims-questioned-ifs In other words, there is some heavy heavy shit to come. Just so the bloated elite can keep their dosh everyone else has to experience misery.

The crisis of probation has dragged in grinning scum bag Junior Justice Minister Simon Hughes: http://www.politics.co.uk/news/2014/10/30/legal-action-starts-against-grayling-s-probation-sell-off When lying nebbish Hughes spouted the government line about probation it drew this response from Shadow Justic Minister Sadiq Khan: “What’s more, Chris Grayling cancelled the pilots of the scheme in his first week in the job, instead boasting to the House of Commons he prefers to ‘trust his instinct’ over hard, statistical evidence.” http://www.politics.co.uk/news/2014/10/30/legal-action-starts-against-grayling-s-probation-sell-off So, as always the government minister is sticking their hands in their ears and saying “I can’t hear you, I can’t hear you”. The only thing important to mega dimwit Grayling is the stink of money. In the neoliberal nightmare, money trumps everything else, and selling off this lucrative service would bring £450000000 a year: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/wires/reuters/article-2812596/Britain-names-preferred-bidders-21-probation-service-contracts.html Here is the view of Probation Matters of the sell off companies: “Not only do most have little or no knowledge of our work, many have murky backgrounds, and to top it all off, information is already emerging of interesting and cosy relationships and connections that are worryingly going to give rise to thoughts of possible conflicts of interest.” http://probationmatters.blogspot.co.uk/2014/10/omnishambles-gets-bigger.html The Ministry of Justice has carried out safety tests, allegedly, but they refuse to publish the risk register: http://www.politics.co.uk/blogs/2014/10/28/officers-say-public-are-in-danger-so-why-won-t-moj-publish-i This is somewhere we have been before with the toolbox, with the evil Health and Social Care Act of 2012: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/risk-register-will-not-be-published Its an act rewed now by Tory grandees who say that it was the worst mistake made by the government: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2790785/unintelligible-gobbledygook-nhs-reforms-biggest-mistake-government-senior-tories-admit.html But of course the evil twits are wrong, for the worst mistakes are cumulative. The fuckwits have made mistake after mistake after mistake after fucking mistake after fucking mistake. Glutted by a short sighted vision the greedy idiots have run riot. The damage which these aholes have caused will cause the Tory implosion. The vast puss filled boil, created by the City of Corruption, will be lanced by the British people, its now coming to a head.

A filthy business

Dirty DC and his Bully chum Disgraceful Osbo have been hoisted by their own petard. This was something I discussed in my blog Myopia. The fallout is continuing – its going to be very intense: http://glynismillward189.wordpress.com/2014/10/24/the-pm-who-cried-wolf/ It has to be watched because the situation is surreal. Brainy Carney is involved, the clever Yankee has to wear a permanent ‘game face’ now.

Someone who does say it like it is, is actress and icon Maureen Lipman: “The Chuka, Harman, Burnham, Balls brigade. I can’t, in all seriousness, go into a booth and put my mark on any one of them…. So, come election day, I shall give my vote to another party. Almost any other party. Until my party is once more led by mensches,” she concluded – using the Yiddish term meaning “a person of integrity and honour”. http://www.westerndailypress.co.uk/Actress-Maureen-Lipman-abandons-lifetime-support/story-23742027-detail/story.html This outpouring has also excited snide cunt Guido Fawkes: http://order-order.com/2014/10/29/lipman-leaves-labour/

Forget the crippled NHS. Forget the abandoned homeless people. Forget the fucking deficit. Forget the massive cuts to councils. There are some areas that need the maximum attention, money is no object as filthy DC said in February 2014: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/topics/weather/10632181/UK-floods-Money-is-no-object-to-end-misery-says-David-Cameron.html There is one thing the fuckwits are good at – wasting money – and pretty soon it will be shovelled at the wall with £97000000 on a super computer to predict the weather. A leading advocate is yellow nebboch Danny Alexander, he spouts: “We are a country fascinated by the weather, so it’s no surprise that from early barometers to this weather supercomputer, we’ve always led the way in developing technology to predict the weather. This £97m investment is a crucial part of the Government’s wider drive to make the UK the best place in the world to do science and research. By bringing world-class technology to the South West, we are also boosting regional investment and expertise, creating a stronger economy and fairer society.” https://www.gov.uk/government/news/97-million-supercomputer-makes-uk-world-leader-in-weather-and-climate-science

Spiteful hatchet man Iain Duncan-Smith is no stranger to shovelling huge amounts of public money down drains. Universal Chaos is no nearer implementation: http://johnnyvoid.wordpress.com/2014/10/28/dont-believe-the-hype-universal-credit-is-no-closer-to-being-workable-than-it-was-in-2010/ Privileged bastard IDS is on a project to shovel £120000000 into the bin: http://www.government-online.net/universal-credit-120m-written-rescue-welfare-reform/ Its a disgrace to see how these are impacting on the poor: http://www.katebelgrave.com/2014/10/learning-difficulties-signing-on-for-jsa-and-hoping-for-a-merciful-jobcentre-adviser/

Finally the Probation Service have mounted their legal challenge to the massive fuck up pushed by brutal schlong Grayling. The law can be an ass, as we all know, but fuckwit Grayling has pissed off the judiciary. Its finely balanced: http://probationmatters.blogspot.co.uk/2014/10/see-you-in-court.html

Dirty DC and his chum Filthy Osbo have been hoisted by their own petard. This was something I discussed in my blog Myopia. The fallout is continuing – its going to be very intense: http://glynismillward189.wordpress.com/2014/10/24/the-pm-who-cried-wolf/ It has to be watched because the situation is surreal.

Frankie Boyle knows filth when he sees it. Here he is calling fuckwit Farage a cunt: http://www.holymoly.com/tv/news/battle-bellends-frankie-boyle-v-nigel-farage-twitter-row71117 Comedians have an unusual responsibility to enlighten Brits, and lefty Frankie needs to say more: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frankie_Boyle

The British Lion is now slowly waking up, its been so deeply asleep that it has vast gaps in its knowledge: http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2014/10/29/ipsos-mori-poll-wrong_n_6066800.html?1414588803&utm_hp_ref=uk By far the biggest gap is related to disability and benefits, which the Toolbox have exploited mercilessly. When the lion is awake it will be taking an interest. The job of the British Lion is actually simple. All it has to do is stand up and make a roaring noise, maybe once. All these political parties are outstandingly weak. Dirty DC has made so many u-turns I even lost count at 40. An implosion could be imminent.

Myopia

Tory imagination is riddled with myopia – the lack of discernment or long range perspective in thinking or planning. Myopia and greed rule the toff mentality, consequently you can now look into every government department and see gaping cracks where the fabric of society has been literally ripped apart.
Bumptious nebbish Brandon Lewis may talk glibly about the fall of unemployment in Great Yarmouth: http://www.brandonlewis.co/political-blog/great-yarmouth-unemployment-down-35/ but as everyone knows the massaging of these statistics creates irrelevancy. Like so many of these fuckwits, Brandon has been totally useless when it mattered: http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/council-housing-crisis-just-220-2172748 But lets not to be hard on the kak. He’s only guilty of myopia.
Classic myopia was seen by the response of the European Commission with their surcharge of £1700000000. Its the fault of nitwit Osborne again. To make his economy look better the idiot included prostitution and drugs in his calculations: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-29754168 Being a shmuck he never saw the consequences. Through gross incompetance something else happened in the Treasury – there was a break down in communicating, meaning that the surchage appears with only six weeks to pay, although the Treasury knew about in May (Chris Leslie, MP update 156). Furious and filthy DC was mortified, gibbering painfully about ‘technocrats and bureaucrats without a heart or a soul’: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2805663/Brussels-asks-UK-cash-economy-s-doing-Cameron-fire-MPs-Brussels-demands-surcharge-France-gets-790m-rebate.html The stupidity will push us out of Europe, which the ahole Grayling will love, a chance to get rid of the European court of human rights. Its something the evil arse can only dream about. Meanwhile the Danish prime minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt has waded into the row, and said that UK must pay up: “I respect that the UK wants to discuss this among ministers, but there are rules that must be kept. Countries must follow the rules as they are.” http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2014/oct/28/double-blow-for-cameron-over-eu-referendum-and-payment-demand
Characteristic Tory myopia is seen in every department by this government of fuckwits. A problem which is now becoming serious are the shabby ‘reforms’ made by the monster Grayling. Lying bastard Grayling loves creating misery, cheery Chris is on a mission to pervert justice. Greedy meshugennah Grayling has created chaos out of order, the crazed rottweiler now has fangs dripping with blood: http://www.politics.co.uk/blogs/2014/10/28/officers-say-public-are-in-danger-so-why-won-t-moj-publish-i For the sake of humanity something should be done about it, dirty DC cannot stop the crazy man. The in house Probation blog, http://probationmatters.blogspot.co.uk/ takes a very grim view of these ‘reforms’. Its a problem going down to the wire right now, with NAPO preparing to press ahead with a Judicial Review: http://probationmatters.blogspot.co.uk/2014/10/latest-from-napo-43.html But cheery Chris doesn’t listen to experts. Like all the other toffs he was born to rule, born to stick his fingers in his ears and say “I can’t hear you, I can’t hear you” as the doughty ship Britannia collides with the iceberg. When klutz Grayling wants to make an important decision, like chosing probation workers for his detested privatisation, he has their names picked out of a hat: http://www.morningstaronline.co.uk/a-ea63-Chris-Grayling-should-apologise-for-jibe-about-job-privatised-by-lottery#.VFC7d_msWFg I read a great many newsletters from Tory MPs, I admit a grim pleasure in reading their concerns as mamser Grayling fucks up, like the Grim Reeper the ponce leaves a trail of destruction. The toolbox cannot avoid the dim truth – at every turn, brutish Grayling is a ‘walking, talking advert’ for Labour: http://blogs.spectator.co.uk/coffeehouse/2014/10/chris-grayling-is-an-advertisement-for-a-labour-government/ The problem is that compulsive liar Grayling is the true face of the Nasty party, and at this rate there is still a great deal more of him.
No blog on myopia is complete without a bit of greedy monstrosity Borisconi. Buffoon Bojo exemplifies myopia. When the grimacing bastard fucked over London with his forced fire station cuts his blinkered myopia meant that the only repercussion he could see was loads of money. Like a boil that needs urgent lancing, disgraceful Borisconi compares himself repeatedly to the statesman Churchill: http://www.economist.com/news/britain/21627668-boris-johnson-unfit-be-compared-his-hero-winston-churchill-yet-may-emulate-him-boris But the puss filled Borisconi will never be a Churchill, like all the Tories he’s a mediocrity with too much dosh. As Borisconi writes of Churchill “he wanted the risk, the exposure, the adrenalin – and the acclaim”: http://www.standard.co.uk/comment/comment/sarah-sands-boris-johnson-and-the-lessons-of-churchill-9823339.html Unlike Borisconi, Churchill is not a symbol of greed, of myopia, of massive social cleansing. Churchill is loved because he had humanity, dignity and a massive intellect.

Arrogance

The evil government believe they are above the law. The tool box believe they can control the law, their outrageous tampering of the law, will be biting them in the bum. Unpleasant bastard Mitchell exemplifies the arrogance that senior Tories treat the law with. To recap, the fuckwit Mitchell began the Plebgate saga even before the allegations made by repeatedly talking to the police in his repugnant born to rule way. Ordinary people respect the police, ordinary people understand that police are a necessary part of society, but shameless Tories believe there is “no such thing as a society” as the wicked witch said in 1987: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2305976/Margaret-Thatcher-quotes-Now-really-thing-society-says-RICHARD-LITTLEJOHN.html But the minister without a fucking portfolio stands head and shoulders above ‘society’ by reason of his being born with a silver spoon up his arse, his guilded life, his army career, his fucking education, and his links with the City of Corruption: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrew_Mitchell Years ago, even before Plebgate, swinging dick Mitchell was displaying a contempt which is natural to a Tory: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/plebgate-mp-andrew-mitchells-record-of-abusing-police-exchief-whip-called-officer-little-st-claim-court-documents-9746501.html But the kaizer Mitchell cannot let go of the Plebgate issues, the dirty bastard is using £15000 of public money to investigate the Plebgate incident, to prove he was set up. Its the kind of arrogance we have seen again and again by Tory twerps, for example when Jeremy Cunt used public money to challenge Lewisham Hospital: http://www.theguardian.com/society/2013/oct/29/lewisham-hospital-jeremy-hunt-unlawful; or when major bum-hole Osborne used public money to try and stop the city of Corruption from paying a meagre financial transaction tax: http://www.theguardian.com/law/2013/apr/19/uk-legal-challenge-financial-transaction-tax

Tory arrogance is to be seen all over society, an area where the toolbox have lost control is the NHS. Blinded by their ignorance, drunk with the stink of massive dosh, the grim bastards shot themselves in the foot by chucking po faced Lansley’s hand grenade in the NHS. When these toffs see beauty they destroy it, when the toffs see a small animal move they reach for their tweeds and pistols, but what really annoyed them about the NHS is that it was popular and not making money. As with everything else in their world, money trumps everything else, so fuck the doctors, fuck the nurses, fuck the whole medical establishment, in retrospect its a shame the arse wasn’t blown up when he worked for seething Lord Tebbit in 1984. The Daily Heil have been ceaselessly denigrating the NHS, its actually disgusting to see, they have been bleating about the NHS in Wales, aided by filthy DC: http://www.morningstaronline.co.uk/a-acf6-Cameron-uses-PMQs-to-smear-Welsh-NHS#.VE4VH_msWFg Dirty, dirty bastards are ceaselessly attacking the services that ordinary people rely on. The toffs are getting nervous now the NHS is crumbling as a direct result of the Health and Social Care Act. Senior Tories are now admitting that the ‘unintelligible gobbledegook’ of the NHS reforms was ‘a huge error’. It was a bill so poorly written that it had to be ammended 2000 times: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2790785/unintelligible-gobbledygook-nhs-reforms-biggest-mistake-government-senior-tories-admit.html The huge error of the NHS will be biting the toffs where it hurts. Two thousand fucking ammendments. At least we can all breath a sigh of relief that Willie Windsor is flying out to help us with his helicopter chums: http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2014/aug/07/prince-william-air-ambulance-pilot – members of the East England public will be able to relish the irony that the establishment shafts us and saves us at the same time.

Tory arrogance is profound with benefits, particularly with the orchestration of Universal Chaos: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/conservative/10282228/Universal-Credit-has-been-plagued-by-problems-says-director.html While poor people pay the price of the toffs shafting UK, its the poor tax payer that foots the bill while the evil nebbish Iain Duncan Smith shovels an eye watering £1250000000+ into the bin: http://press.labour.org.uk/post/99896386919/ministers-admit-universal-credit-could-cost-taxpayers Instead of this out of touch elite apologising, the shits are making ordinary people foot the bill. These monsters even pretend to be helping people with Universal Chaos: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/universal-credit-will-support-young-people-in-work The same nonsense of tough love is pedalled out as an excuse for disasterous reforms of the prison service and the probation service. Here is some filthy DC drivel from 2011: “This is what victims and society deserve… And the society bit matters. Retribution is not a dirty word; it is important to society that revulsion against crime is properly recognised, and acted on by the state on our behalf”: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-20022794 The arrogance of the freak Grayling in this area is profound – like IDS, the brutal fuckwit cannot believe he has control of so many vulnerable people. Here the shmeril seethes: “I want the arrival in prison for the first time to be an experience that is not one they’d want to repeat. That means an environment where they arrive [where] standards are pretty basic and then they start to gain extras by contributing… and if they won’t do it, then they can’t expect to start gaining those privileges.” http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-22341867

Greedy arse Boris Johnson is notable for his arrogance and stupidity. Fuck-face Bojo doesn’t give a damn how he trashes London. The only thing the bastard gives a damn about is mountains of dosh. The destruction his stupidity and arrogance causes leaves a wreck in his path permanently altering the face of London: http://leftfootforward.org/2014/10/boriss-affordable-housing-failure-exposes-his-true-colours/ Like a gigantic debauched turd with a wrecking ball, the clowning cock messes up repeatedly, pretending to have a wit, his water canons now cranked for the winter of discontent. The promotion of Bojo is his sole project, the populist bastard will be thrown to oblivion when the British Lion roars.

Weakness

Disabled people, unemployed people, single parents, women and people who are simply down on their luck, and who are being massively shafted by the government, naturally look to the Labour party to defend them. But when they look all they can find is a Labour party without a backbone. The weakness of Labour is most conspicuous with immigration. Labour is scared of the racism of UKIP and the Tory mimicry. The stupid Labour bum-holes have to join in too: http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2014/oct/23/labour-immigration-reform-bill-voter-concerns, like rabbits caught in the head-lights of a car, they cannot see how its making Labour appear Tory-lite. To Jo Public, caught out sleep walking by the toff toolbox, there is no differentiation. They look at Scotland, they see Labour argue Tory policies, and understandably they feel confused. Watching the tedious Darling defend Tory NHS policies was cringeworthy: http://www.news-cloud.co.uk/TheGuardianPolitics/2014/08/25/SalmondVDarlingScottishIndependenceDebateOnTheBbcLiveCoverage.html
The weakness at the centre of the Labour party could easily result in a UKIP win at Rochester and Strood on November 20th. When Red Ed visited the constituency he took useless Yvette Cooper, as usual they did not talk about the issues ordinary people really care about – the Medway Hospital, the fucking benefit sanctions regime and the huge cuts to social care: http://www.kentonline.co.uk/medway/news/ed-miliband-to-visit-rochester-25737/ Cocknugget Red Ed is unable to connect with ordinary people, who feel forced to vote for the grinning pretenders UKIP instead. All this talk of immigration, of racism, of fucking Europe, is a smoke screen, obscuring the issues. But the British lion will not have to roar much to take the power back.
The implications of a sizeable UKIP win in Rochester and Strood could actually be severe on Labour and the Tories. For both these parties it will create fear. Labour are facing decimation in Scotland, weak Ed should stop scratching his bollocks and look at all the people lining up to bite his arse. Not long now until the general election and the British lion is just waking up. UKIP health policy is worse than the Tories, whether they like it or not, its going to be where the battle lines are drawn. Evil khaizer Lynton Crosby understands this: http://www.newstatesman.com/politics/2014/10/could-nhs-englands-call-more-funding-and-overhaul-help-labour. The Machiavellian bastard recognises the weakness of the Tories on the NHS, he knows that when they bleat about the failures of the NHS in Wales that inadvertently the toffs shoot themselves in the foot. But its no surprise that the collapse could come from Wales, its been a prediction for some time: http://bma.org.uk/news-views-analysis/news/2014/january/emergency-services-face-collapse-warns-bma
Whatever the suits tell you, the NHS exposes weakness. No matter which way the toffs turn, no matter what lies, what shit they tell you, the NHS matters to ordinary people. Ordinary people don’t give a fuck if Labour brought in PFIs, ordinary people are being denied a voice by the establishment. When dirty DC brought in the shabby gagging bill he thought he could tame the lion. Filthy DC is a sloppy operator, and now its going pear shaped, the mamser can only scratch his head and look woeful. But no matter how much the grim bastard scratches, he isn’t Einstein, in fact he is the worst PM in the entire history of UK. Right now the arse is making mistake after mistake. The English apple is rotten to the core, its rank, it stinks of greed. When you look at the toolbox all you can see are fascists. Grayling, IDS, Pickles, May – all tarred with the same brush, understood by Lenin, when he wrote “fascism is capitalism in decay” https://protestationdotorg.wordpress.com/2014/10/17/lenin-fascism-is-capitalism-in-decay-httpprotestationdotorg-wordpress-comcategoryquotes6423-5/
The gagging bill cannot prevent the British lion from roaring. The gagging bill can be wafted aside, its a clumsy attempt at authoritarianism, by a government who were stupid enough to irritate the police and the judiciary. The police detest the government, its relevant because morale will be flagging at the critical time. Its a sign of weakness and short sightedness that the establishment have fucked off Old Bill. Old Bill can only take so much. Expect some shit to go down in the closure of the police stations. I respect Old Bill, its a relevant part of society, but society is irrelevant to these Neanderthals. As head of their tribe Thatcher said in 1978 “there is no such thing as a society” http://www.margaretthatcher.org/document/106689 With their dismembering of the welfare state, the toffs will learn an excrutiating lesson. I read their bloody newsletters, I will be reaching for the popcorn soon. Willie Windsor in his helicopter will be shaking his equine head.

Stupid Bastards

One thing I really hate about this toolbox is the way they have manipulated the media to create a false idea that decent British people should stay asleep. As the British lion starts to rumble, top Tory nebbishes are getting nervous. The NHS is frightening the old guard: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2790785/unintelligible-gobbledygook-nhs-reforms-biggest-mistake-government-senior-tories-admit.html Very rarely the British lion comes awake. When it comes awake, it cannot be controlled. The toffs fear a fucking tsunami wave sweeping over the establishment, tearing everything away. They fear their stupid greedy lie about the economy will be discovered. But the stupid bastards are losing control. With so many deteriorating crises the eventual fall out will be compounded.

The Stupid Bastard Farage feeds from the slumber of the British lion. The grimacing mamser has no answers to the NHS problems, UKIP would love to get rid of the NHS, they say its costly and inefficient: http://tompride.wordpress.com/2014/05/09/ukip-deputy-leader-calls-for-end-of-nhs/ UKIP and the NHS are toxic: http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/oct/02/ukip-assault-on-nhs-extinction The grimacing bastard may waffle about streamlining the NHS: http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2014/10/09/nigel-farage-nhs-privatisation_n_5957274.html but the gimp will cower when the lion roars. How dare the grimacing sheister keep the voice of the people from the fucking debates: http://www.newstatesman.com/politics/2014/10/could-exclusion-leaders-debates-be-helping-greens I am not a Green member, I joined Left Unity in 2013, but I signed the petition to give them a voice, and now I am thinking of going Green.

Bumbling greedy fuckwit Borisconi directly feeds on populism. The morally bankrupt shlemiel is in the immediate firing line of a London catastrophe.

Jeremy Cunt is at it again. He never gives up in his drive to denigrate the NHS. The shameless bastard never stops bleating. Today (16-10-14) he’s banging on about the costly mistakes which are costing the NHS £2.5 billion a year: http://www.theguardian.com/society/2014/oct/16/mistakes-cost-nhs-billions-each-year For years the tedious dumb-ass has been putting the service down, in the relentless Tory attack. When it collapses the egg will be on his face, no amount of rigor mortis grinning or talking shit about Stafford and Morecambe will compensate for the massive fallout. But filthy Jeremy is hiding an open secret – that there is no plan of what to do after the NHS demise. There is no plan for the Social Care Crisis. That’s right – these people are winging it hopelessly, and yet filthy DC has a vision of endless austerity which has no NHS.

Yesterday I said that filthy DC has run out of sticking plasters. I was wrong, he found another: http://www.hsj.co.uk/5075784.article?WT.tsrc=email&WT.mc_id=Newsletter2 If the government deem, they can plough money into the NHS. MP Jack Dromey is campaigning for this right now, stating the obvious that this can be “paid for by clamping down down on tax avoidance by big companies, a ‘mansion tax’ on those who own homes worth more than £2 million and by asking tobacco companies to pay their fair share” (email).

In the war of the poor, the crisis of social care is at its most sharp with the vulnerable. While greedy banking bum-holes pay themselves bonuses of millions of quid, its the most vulnerable that pay the price: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/english-councils-failing-to-help-most-vulnerable-homelessness-charity-finds-9796548.html As if guaranteed, bullies all over UK, indeed all over the world, are rearing their ugly heads, but the higher they are the mightier will be their fall. Imagine how sad the debauched clown Borisconi will be when the British lion wakes up. The clown can only offer circuses and wave his dong in the air. Its not a nice sight, it doesn’t work outside London, Bojo is so shit he makes Red Ken seem a moral colossus: http://www.newstatesman.com/politics/2014/04/ken-livingstone-boris-lazy-tosser-who-just-wants-be-there . The social cleansing which we have seen under this administration has changed my city. The figures they tell you of how many people are homeless is the tip of the iceberg, officially last year it was 112070: http://www.theguardian.com/society/2014/jun/25/homelessness-crisis-england-perfect-storm, unofficially it could be 1000000.

Of all the stupid bastards, Lord Freud is one of the most stupid. The toff shit opened his gob yesterday (16-10). The freak who came up with the outstanding “you don’t have to be a corpse to go to a (fucking) funeral”: http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/who-lord-freud-super-rich-ex-banker-4446201, comes out with: “Now, there is a small…there is a group, and I know exactly who you mean, where actually as you say they’re not worth the full wage and actually I’m going to go and think about that particular issue, whether there is something we can do nationally, and without distorting the whole thing, which actually if someone wants to work for £2 an hour, and it’s working can we actually …” https://speye.wordpress.com/2014/10/15/pay-the-disabled-2-per-hour-to-work-says-architect-of-bedroom-tax-lord-freud-resign-now/

The SNP present as much a problem to the enfeebled Labour party as UKIP, they will certainly take Labour votes, their appearance in the leadership debates to the exclusion of SNP makes Scots angry and rightly so: http://weegingerdug.wordpress.com/2014/10/14/newtons-law-of-y-fronts/ Scots see this as the usual betrayal: http://scotgoespop.blogspot.co.uk/2014/10/ok-london-broadcasters-so-tell-us-just.html The SNP are angry and motivated: http://www.heraldscotland.com/politics/scottish-politics/salmond-cameron-clegg-and-miliband-are-preparing-to-betray-scotland-on-mo.1413287058 It terrifies the establishment that a revolution could originate from Scotland: http://bellacaledonia.org.uk/2014/10/04/new-priorities/, the only reason they can do nothing about it, is that these stupid bastards can only see a small way ahead. In the neoliberal world the only thing that matters is the immediate future, the instant profit, damn the consequences. Sell your whole bloody country for a fistful of wonga. Kick the poor, pour scorn on the underclass, sell your grandmother down the fucking river.

History repeats itself. They should be teaching Trotsky at school: “The road to socialism lies through a period of the highest possible intensification of the principle of the state … Just as a lamp, before going out, shoots up in a brilliant flame, so the state, before disappearing, assumes the form of the dictatorship of the proletariat, i.e., the most ruthless form of state, which embraces the life of the citizens authoritatively in every direction…” http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Leon_Trotsky

Crisis without mentioning IDS

All this fucking spouting about who will be included on the TV debates makes me angry. Wherever I go there are people telling me that they support UKIP. Decent people being denied a voice by the ahole Farage, as he bores them into confusion with his ugly rhetoric. The khazer knows that however much he dazzles us with his pints of beer, that when the Tory party implodes, UKIP will be in there too. Lies. Stupid lies too, masking major crises, each one covered with sticking plasters.

This blog is only about a few of the crises. They all interact, which is alarming but also volatile and potentially revolutionary.

The crisis of social care has been covered with plasters, but the 99% will be feeling the sharp edge. Social care is on the brink. In this void vulnerable pensioners are turfed out of care homes: http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/vulnerable-pensioners-being-turfed-out-4427704 – maybe they will add to the bed blocking. Right now its shockingly high, its a huge canary in the mine – a bigger than Bojo one: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-78550/Bed-blocking-elderly-patients-rises.html The scale of the problem has been lied about by the government, its going to suddenly be a massive problem. At first they said it was 6000, turns out it should have been 600000. Caroline Abrahams, Age UK’s charity director said: “The marked rise since 2010 in the length of time people are being forced to linger in hospital because of a delayed assessment, care home place, home care package or home adaptation is an outcome of the crisis in social care. It is crazy to waste expensive NHS resources in this way, when it would be much more cost effective and better for older people to fund social care properly instead.” http://www.adjacentgovernment.co.uk/nhs-health-social-care-news/social-care-cuts-hospital-bed-blocking/

The grinding problems of the NHS are intertwined with social care, the two cannot operate apart, but this basic fact was over looked by po faced Lansley. Senior Tory grandees are admitting these market driven reforms had been a “huge mistake”, the “gobbledegook” was unintelligible to filthy DC and toff toe rag Osborne: http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/tories-admit-nhs-reforms-were-huge-error-which-david-cameron-didnt-even-understand-1469701 As the top brass gets queasy, the British Lion is slowly awakening. Looks like it will all be popping in time for Willy Windsor in his helicopter.

The big picture is a rapidly developing national catastrophe. Yet they dare with their patronage and their fucking arrogance, to talk about an election debate excluding my class. The Rich need a fucking good lesson. They need to learn not to be so bloody greedy. When dirty DC robbed us of all the gains made in the last three hundred years he obviously did not expect to hear the British lion roar.

There is now a crisis in the prison service: http://www.theguardian.com/society/2014/sep/02/chris-grayling-justice-secretary-prison-service-crisis . Here the condom head Chris Grayling has been allowed to operate in secrecy. Snide cunt Grayling wallows in misery, in un pc words, the fucking lunatic has taken charge at the asylum. The frothing fascist can only think about his greed as we drift lower down shit creek. The rapidly increasing pace of the war of the poor is catching the poshes out.

Probation is a big area the toff has fucked up, the appalling results are just starting to trickle in.
As with every other area, the experts said one thing, and the wretched Tories stuck their fingers in their ears. They pretended not to hear, they didn’t give a fuck. http://www.independent.co.uk/voices/comment/graylings-probation-reforms-could-have-the-biggest-impact-of-all-9174268.html

Grayling lost the plot years ago, he probably cannot believe his luck, that he is free to do as much damage as he can to vulnerable people. Someone who cared about the harm done to probation by the sneering bum-hole is Sarah Kane, a probation officer who killed herself, she detested his ‘reforms’ so much. She wrote a eulogy. It was read at her funeral, here is some: “A trouble-making Sarah would have delighted in calling Chris Grayling a murderer, he’s certainly murdered the probation service. But hey, let’s face it, Chrisso will continue safe and sound in his ivory tower breaking stuff that didn’t need fixing beyond repair. Shame some of that stuff was the probation service now left reeling from his incompetent bumbling.” http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/crime/chris-grayling-is-accused-of-murdering-the-probation-service-9673865.html Yet even so, the charmless bully has forced NAPO to press its panic button: http://probationmatters.blogspot.co.uk/2014/10/moj-press-panic-button.html

I am not a medic, I am a medieval archaeologist, I am an academic, I work by logic. In my logical world if you have a sore and you cover it with a sticking plaster again and again without curing that problem, then that sore changes. It becomes a fucking big problem, it exacerbates. In the tipsy turvy neoliberal void money trumps every other human right. The only currency is greed. But dirty DC is a sloppy operator, the worst prime minister of UK of all time has emptied the plaster box.

McFlurry

Few people talk about eggs with more wisdom than the fuckwit Edwina Currie. Its not surprising that the venomous Tory could not resist taking a swipe at the striking midwifes: http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2014/10/13/edwina-currie-calls-strik_n_5975984.html?1413203476 The Tory may have had the wherewithal not to appear on Strictly Come Dancing unlike Anne Widicombe, but despite her ordinary background: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edwina_Currie this dingleberry hates poor people. Here’s some words from the posh trout: “I get very, very troubled at the number of people who are using food banks who think that it’s fine to pay to feed their dog, their dog is in good nick and beautiful, but they never learn to cook, they never learn to manage and the moment they’ve got a bit of spare cash they’re off getting another tattoo. We should feel cross about this, all of us.” http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2542105/Edwina-Currie-ordered-Twitter-husband-criticised-saying-foodbank-users-spend-spare-cash-tattoos-dog-food.html# How dare you have a fucking pet, you piece of working class shit? And you say the dog is in good health? Do you know how much a pint costs now? I can actually feel the froth appear on my lips. OJ says she manufactures outrage for money: https://twitter.com/OwenJones84 In the neoliberal world everything is topsy turvy, but despite the illusions it doesn’t take a genius to know what way the wind is blowing. In this great robbery, they know the wind stinks of shit.

The blood sucking arse Farage said a remarkable thing the other day, it was a rare moment of truth for the privileged pretender. I never attributed the ghastly nob Carswell as having a sense of humour, but he inflicted a McFlurry on the oily cunt Farage. The arse may have been grinning maniacally but he didn’t enjoy poor man’s food. He goes “I am a bit nervous as I am never photographed without a pint in my hand”: cannot find the link now, Still, at least he ate the cookie unlike the vulture Romney: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/04/19/romney-cookie-pennsylvania-bakery_n_1436333.html

These days my hatred for UKIP is tempered. This is because politically I can see Tory fear. I can detect their rotten stink. Tories know their biggest Achilles’ heel is the evil Heath and Social Care act. Anonymous Tory grandees are spitting bullets: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/governments-reorganisation-of-the-nhs-was-its-biggest-mistake-say-senior-tories-9790247.html The bastard Reckless could lead to an intensification of class war, the posh boy could trigger a leadership contest, it only takes 46 Tories to get it going: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/david-cameron/11157002/David-Cameron-will-face-leadership-challenge-if-he-loses-second-seat-to-Ukip.html Actually its long overdue, Tories carry knives, they stab each other in the back willy nilly, but during the DC project they have been unified, even when Tory Nadine Dories spoke with alarming truth and clarity: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-17815769 The establishment would love to deny ordinary people a voice in the leadership debates: http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2014/10/13/farage-leaders-debate-broadcasters_n_5975478.html Let’s assume that through the crisis in Labour, the surge of SNP and through general ignorance UKIP forms a nasty coalition with the Tories, then how long will the NHS last? UKIP plans over the NHS are well known: http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/oct/02/ukip-assault-on-nhs-extinction In the words of Berlin: “There may be trouble ahead” – but don’t expect the mediocrities to have a plan.

Decent people have an inherent love of fairness. Decent people think this government is disgusting. Decent people look at DC, at fuckwit IDS, at grotesque Pickles, at vicious May, and they think – you bunch of fucking freaks. Now the gagging bill is in place, the midwives are striking and oily tick Farage is pretending to enjoy a McFlurry, the wheels are falling off the machine. But its no big deal to the mean, spiteful nebbishes in charge. Its about ignoring the iceberg even as we collide, just keep shuffling the fucking deck chairs. It was always the neoliberal ideal to make a quick buck and damn the consequences. That’s right Mr Farage – keep stuffing the McFlurry in your gob.

Hang on – there’s someone we’ve forgotten – its the debauched greedy dick-head Bojo. Surely Bojo can rescue the UK from its maelstrom? With his shiny buses, his useless cable car and his clownish demeanour I know that Bojo, would get my vote if I lived in Ruislip: http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2014/sep/12/boris-johnson-tory-candidate-uxbridge-south-ruislip You see – Boris understands people – the great klutz is in the same populist bandwagon as ponce Farage. He knows all you have to do is pull silly faces, wave your cock around a bit, say a posh line in an eccentric voice and the people believe in you. You see Boris cares about the NHS. Thats why the cheery bastard talks to Lord Darzi: http://www.standard.co.uk/news/politics/mayor-boris-johnson-asks-labours-lord-darzi-to-spearhead-fight-for-nhs-cash-8823795.html

Actually – now we have started talking about the NHS I had better interrupt myself to talk about the ivory tower. Duchess Kate has been sick, at least with the socialism for the bloated elite she can expect some help at her most stressful time. A family friend takes over: “She is not at all well, the poor thing. When you’re ill, the place you feel most comfortable is at home with your mum, isn’t it? When she’s there, Kate can just relax and sit on the sofa and not have to worry about having to deal with all the staff and everything else that comes with a palace full of big rooms.” http://hrhduchesskate.blogspot.co.uk/2014/10/kate-cancels-another-engagement.html

A crisis for Labour

A central theme of the current political situation, pushed by the poisonous right wing media, is that we all have shit for brains. No matter what the establishment tell you, this is a crisis for Labour. Take for example the acceptance speech of the seething freak Carswell at the Clacton by Election: “To my new party I offer these thoughts. Humility when we win, modesty when we are proved right. If we speak with passion let it always be tempered by compassion. We must be a party for all Britain and all Britons, first and second generation as much as every other. Our strength must lie in our breadth. If we stay true to that there is nothing we cannot achieve. The governing can no longer presume to know what is right for the governed. Crony corporatism is not the free MARKET. Cosy cartel politics is not meaningful democracy. Change is coming with the realising that things can be better. It is an honour to be a small part of that this evening.” http://www.politics.co.uk/blogs/2014/10/10/prepare-for-the-ukip-civil-war

The entire fucking establishment are laughing at us as they massively shaft the poor, the disabled, and anyone down on their luck. Grimacing khazer Farage is trampling all over Labour heartlands, small wonder the woman hater can come out strong in Heywood and Middleton in Greater Manchester: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/ed-miliband/11153129/Heywood-and-Middleton-by-election-Labour-holds-off-Ukip-surge-by-just-617-votes.html But however much he smokes and drinks a pint, the spiv Farage has a bow with only a few strings. Actually he has two Achilles’ heels. One is a hatred for disabled people: http://www.newstatesman.com/politics/2014/10/ukip-should-examine-its-own-record-over-disability-tirade Loathing for our community is only to expected from toffs, after all, we represent the antithesis of capitalism. A major Achilles’ Heel, shared with the Tory vermin is hatred for the NHS. Nasty Nigel may talk shit about streamlining the NHS, but the spiv will have no plan when the NHS hits the wall. Here’s some shit from the horses’ mouth: “I genuinely do think, when you sort of occasionally hear of a big businessman that says he’d like to run the national health service and streamline it, and get better value for money, I think that’s the approach we’ve got to take.” http://stilllaughingattheukip.wordpress.com/2014/10/08/farage-said-something-disturbing-about-the-nhs/ Yes – greedy Nigel can smell the stink of dosh. With his media privilege dirty Nigel can only get stronger, as the Labour party get weaker. Its only to be anticipated the media wolf pack will be in full cry into anti Red Ed mode by the general election after the spouting nebbish criticised the media with reference to his father: http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2013/oct/01/miliband-furious-daily-mail-father It is grim, but this could be really important if the ebola problem becomes an international pandemic, something the elder Miliband is also spouting: http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/oct/09/ebola-david-miliband-warns-tipping-point

Many people tell me with despair that David would be a better leader than Red Ed, and they are missing the point. The problem is not which Milibean, the problem is Labour itself – what is the point of Labour? http://anotherangryvoice.blogspot.co.uk/2014/10/what-is-point-of-labour.html?spref=fb Labour are so stuck they can barely fight UKIP, where it seems they should be swatting flies they are flailing miserably: http://www.newstatesman.com/politics/2014/10/ukips-assault-labour-continues .

In Scotland, the shooting star of the SNP spells disaster ahead for Labour and rightly so, the left have got their act together up North: http://www.politics.co.uk/news/2014/08/19/labour-failures-to-blame-for-scottish-independence-referendu
When the wazzok Darling started trying to argue Tory policies he showed how Labour are now the establishment. Gordon Brown always looks miserable, as the Tory poison infects Scotland he will feel the fucking rage.

UKIP are unexpectedly showing the weakness of Labour, who also shot themselves in the foot over union funding – eg – http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/labour-faces-1m-funding-crisis-after-gmb-cuts-party-cash-by-90-8797405.html . I am not a Labour treasurer, but when the butt-crack Tony Blair offers his toxic money, does anyone seriously believe this will attract voters: http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2014/mar/05/tony-blair-labour-party-donation Perhaps worse is the idea that Blairite tosser Alan Johnson could try to lead the Labour party: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/ed-miliband/11141992/Labour-MPs-urge-Alan-Johnson-to-challenge-for-leader-amid-growing-disgruntlement-with-Ed-Miliband.html

Yes I am angry, I am bloody angry at the mess these greedy sanctimonious arrogant bastards are leaving behind. For three centuries ordinary British people have fought tooth and nail for these rights. Real change for the better do not come without sacrifice. Red Ed could have made it so much easier, but now its going to have to go to the bitter end. Ed is now out of time, he will just have to fuck off like the tossers before him, to make way for someone of real stature, a real statesman.

Colours

The big picture is that events are speeding up.

At the same time as Red Ed is plummeting in the polls: http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2014/10/07/ed-miliband-labour-poll_n_5943928.html, the evil Tories are within a stone’s throw of an overall majority. Its on, pathetic Ed has no chance: http://www1.politicalbetting.com/index.php/archives/2014/10/06/tories-maintain-their-lead-with-yougov/ The question is – can he up his game? At one point Red Ed looked like he could, but now I am no longer sure. Burton-Cartledge tells us that the Labour party has to look right into itself, that the membership have to push the change if the nebbish Ed can only scratch his bollocks when presented with an open goal: http://www.leftfutures.org/2014/10/either-labour-starts-to-do-politics-or-politics-will-do-in-labour/#more-37674
Stalwart Meacher says it like it is: http://voxpoliticalonline.com/2014/10/03/the-next-election-is-a-race-that-both-main-parties-seem-anxious-to-lose-michael-meacher/ Useless Red Ed has already lost loads of votes in Scotland: http://scotgoespop.blogspot.co.uk/2014/10/poll-of-polls-update-and-response-to_7.html – it will set up another referendum which will rightly be a landslide victory for YES: http://www.scotsman.com/news/uk/yes-landslide-if-westminster-breaks-powers-vow-1-3548368 Brilliant blogger Craig Murray understands it, and I don’t think we have seen the end of Scotland as an issue: http://www.craigmurray.org.uk/archives/2014/10/lack-of-forgiveness/

Yellow nebbish Clegg has also shown his colours: http://diaryofabenefitscrounger.blogspot.co.uk/2014/10/clegg-innocent.html What is clear is that the path ahead is unclear: http://www.counterfire.org/articles/opinion/17460-britain-s-crisis-continues

It doesn’t matter what shit they tell you about the human rights act, this is class war: http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/john-wight/2015-election_b_5937980.html?utm_hp_ref=uk. The freak Grayling cannot wait to get rid of the Human Rights Act: http://www.newstatesman.com/politics/2014/10/takeover-tory-party-those-opposed-human-rights-complete

I better interrupt this to tell you again that Duchess Kate is expecting another baby. In these dark times, its good that we can have a rare chink of light to illuminate the day. Darkness is actually something that grotesque bastard Eric Pickles vaunts, here is the fatuous bum hole addressing the Tory boys and the Tory girls at a Tory youth event, saying, “this is what Valhalla looks like” : http://politicalscrapbook.net/2014/10/pickles-hails-unapologetic-unreformed-thatcherites-at-tory-conference/ The whole Tory machine has swung violently to the right. Small wonder then that useless Environment Minister Truss is now pushing fox hunting: http://www.express.co.uk/news/politics/516121/Elizabeth-Truss-fox-hunting-ban-scrapped Rich people love killing things, thank goodness the seething Tory has her priorities right. Its raining a lot now – when the Tory heartlands flood again, expect her to wear the wellies and a sad doggy expression.

As the election campaigns ramp up, everyone is recognising that the NHS is a central issue. Yellow nebbish Clegg has talked about mental health: http://www.theguardian.com/society/2014/oct/08/mental-health-care-120m-funding-waiting-time-targets-nick-clegg. The deluded arses may be crowing about the state of the NHS, but week after week, the Liberal MPs voted against our beloved public institutions, queueing up at the ballot box to make their shameless contribution: http://diaryofabenefitscrounger.blogspot.co.uk/2014/10/clegg-innocent.html Dirty DC may waffle that the Conservatives are “the real party of compassion and social justice” http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-29433919 but the filthy bastard is destroying the NHS. The toff dick-head thought no one would care when he stole the NHS from us, trashed it and pitilessly, silently, dismembered it. Even Labour only seem able to offer a sticking plaster of £2.5 billion in 2017: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2781694/Labour-admits-extra-2-5billion-NHS-not-arrive-2017.html The scale of the NHS closures is almost impossible to ascertain, but when the shit does hit the fan the English lion is going to roar.

Daily we now can read disgusting stories about disabled people who are taking their lives over the so called welfare reforms. As this vile tragedy unfolds excruciatingly slowly we can only watch as fucking MPs continue fiddling their expenses, look at bell-end Jim Murphy squirm: http://www.newsnetscotland.scot/index.php/scottish-news/6083-labour-mp-jim-murphy-caught-up-in-new-expenses-row

Greedy ahole Boris Johnson plays a leading roll in the fucking up of London: http://www.independent.co.uk/voices/comment/boris-johnson-has-revealed-his-true-colours-and-taken-a-brick-to-people-power-9778279.html Outside of London the bastard is little known, but Bojo’s time is still coming, studying the career of the debauched grinning schmuck convinces me that more than any other politician in this country, Bojo will feel hatred. Many of them don’t give a fuck – the monster Grayling, the meshugennah IDS, Jeremy Cunt, bloody May – none of them care – but greedy dimwit Bojo aches for publicity. When the bum-hole fucked with the fire brigade he set something terrible up, and now he’s fucking up the London transport you can almost see it coming. But the truth is that at this volatile point the big events can come from anywhere. It could come from Ebola, no wonder our Cobra met today (08-10): http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/ebola-virus-outbreak-uk-hospitals-on-standby-as-david-cameron-holds-cobra-meeting-9781193.html The beleaguered NHS could not handle an epidemic.
