Privatisation to Blame for Track and Trace Disaster Not the NHS

For over a week now I have been racked with the pain of an aggressive bout of Shingles and largely confined to bed and ordered to swallow daily medication designed to undermine the virus and relieve my pain. However no amount of tablets in the world could relieve my anger at this dishonest, deceitful, and corrupt Tory government which is literally privatising the National Health Service before our eyes and playing an almighty con-trick on the public with the shabby and shameful assistance of the pathetically docile and deferential mainstream media. The NHS Track and Trace system that Unscrupulous Johnson […]

I wonder how many reading this column are aware of the United Nations General Assembly meeting of 9th September which debated and discussed the need for a coordinated worldwide approach to combating the serious health, social and economic effects of the Covid-19 global pandemic?

Lawbreakers, Liars and Charlatans – Decrepit Britain is Decaying

Leaning heavily on the words of two literary giants the Scottish National Party leader at Westminster, Ian Blackford, savaged England’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson in the House of Parliament. The memory of Scotland’s Bard Robert Burns was deployed when Blackford borrowed from Burn’s superb ‘Such A Parcel Of Rogues In A Nation’ poem to accuse Johnson and his Cabinet of being ‘a parcel of rogues’ who were intent in turning the UK into a ‘rogue’ nation with their plans to break international and domestic law in their Internal Market Bill: “This legislation breaks international law, but it also breaks domestic […]
