Privatisation Backdoor Style

Sometimes with a back-door in politics,evolves a plan,with the aim to change the promise made by a chancellor! This plan has been months in the making,and the next step is to remove the fence that has ringed the NHS funding for many a year, and it will shortly be dismantled! And with it all the promises made since the introduction of the ” Community Care Act” in 1990! It will be washed away “like throwing the baby out with the bath water,” and what a baby it is, having been nurtured since inception in 1948! So you ask what do l mean, well simply back in 1979 when Margaret Thatcher came to power, the rot set in and everyday since that time it carried the nails in its side (like Jesus, just waiting for the time of the next Conservative Government, to finish the job she started! Well her legacy of privatising the NHS is nearly realised, as various MPs gather to sound the death knell of our beloved, yet beleaguered health service! Leaving in its wake a disjointed, broken-up and battered organisation, ripe for the picking!Soon those nails so carefully placed by Margaret Thatcher will become so painful that we will be told by the chancellor, there is no choice the NHS cannot have guaranteed funding and it will slowly die on the cross of “#ProfitB4People and “Care In The Community” will be no more, unless you can afford to pay!!

Six centre-Right policy institutes say it is “not sensible” to define some public services as “sacrosanct”, as two think-tanks favoured by Labour criticise the ring-fencing of funds for schools, health and international development.

The independent Institute for Fiscal Studies also warned that other public services would suffer more “pain” as a result of the “sub-optimal” approach to reviewing government budgets. Read full story at: Cut-Aid-& NHS-Cash-George-Osborne-Told

Only Good Citizens Need Apply!

The Mail on Sunday claims that Ed Miliband has been embarrassed by MPs in his own party, after the Labour leader called for ‘good citizens’ to be fast-tracked up council-housing lists. The paper notes that the local Labour council in Camden has said that they don’t have enough houses, while Labour runMerton Council has said such a move would breach Harriet Harman’s equalities legislation.

I read this story with dismay as the word ” Good ” has many onerous ways to be understood!  The free dictionary has many ways to tell us how it should be used, please read it at this link http://www.thefreedictionary.com/Good 

The good l mean is who decides one man or woman is good and by what guidelines do we apply this meaning? If we refer to one person being good at sport ,do we believe those people get a council house first! Or maybe someone who teaches our children and who earns enough, to pay for a home and does not need this type of help! Or maybe simply the tramp in the street, who for no fault of his own is on their uppers! Once a shopkeeper and a supermarket is allowed to open up and his business goes crash!

So l look at good as what one person does for another and not by what that person expects in return! The meaning of giving of oneself for no reward is a seldom gift and so easily abused, by us and our society!
