How can the NHS emulate Netflix when Johnson is comparing it to defunct Blockbuster?

Blockbuster NHS: During the Covid-19 crisis, Boris Johnson wandered round hospitals maskless – in the hope that he’d spread as much disease as possible and push the over-burdened health service to collapse?

This is typical of the Boris Johnson government.

It is a government that wants to impress the public with a snappy soundbite – but can’t manage it because neither the Tory ministers nor their civil servants are capable of putting one together that actually means something.

So we get moments like this:

Downing Street later tried to clarify by saying the intention was to say the NHS is like Blockbuster (the defunct video rental chain) and Health Secretary Sajid Javid wants to bring it into the Netflix age rather than they want it to be a blockbuster.

But that’s not what the soundbite said at all!

In this context, “a Blockbuster healthcare system in the age of Netflix” is one that is obsolete, unworkable and out of business.

We all know that’s what Tories like Javid and Johnson want to do to the NHS but did any of us expect them to be so on-the-nose about it?

And – hey, come to think of it, here’s a more worrying thought:

Did they actually put out the soundbite, knowing what it means but thinking that we wouldn’t realise?

Cost of living crisis: How will prescription charge freeze help people who need it?

Sajid Javid: the eyes are open but the mind is not.

Sajid Javid’s an ignorant little… banker, isn’t he?

This entitled Tory twit has frozen prescription charges in England, saying keeping the charge at an extortionate £9.35 until next year will “put money back in people’s pockets.”

No, it won’t – certainly not for me. I live in Wales.

And it won’t even do that in England. It just won’t take any more money from people hard-pressed by the cost-of-living crisis.

And, of course, it won’t help everybody – just those who are ill…

… who aren’t among the 90 per cent who already get their prescriptions free of charge.

So that counts those on state benefits, pregnant women and new mothers, people with specified medical conditions or disabilities, the over-60s and under-16s out of having any money put back in their pockets by this change.

And of course people here in Wales, and also in Scotland and Northern Ireland, also have free prescriptions.

“The rise in the cost of living has been unavoidable as we face global challenges and the repercussions of Putin’s illegal war in Ukraine,” Javid said. “Whilst we can’t completely prevent these rises, where we can help – we absolutely will.”

But it seems the only people likely to benefit from this help with the cost of living are people who don’t need it. He’s just saving cash for his fellow Tories.

Government set to #uturn over mandatory #NHSvaccinations

Hospital ward: how many NHS staff would Sajid Javid have lost if he continued with his plan for mandatory vaccinations?

Boris Johnson’s Tory government is rubbish at brinkmanship, isn’t it?

It’s good at bullying: where they have all the power, Johnson’s mob run roughshod over the plebs every time.

But look at this climbdown. Only a few weeks ago, Sajid Javid was rattling the sabre hard, saying NHS staff must get the Covid-19 vaccinations or lose their jobs.

Now he’s climbing down fast because the number of staff members refusing to have the injections forced on them (which is, let’s remember, a human rights violation) would cause a staffing crisis in the NHS.

This is not about people being anti-vaxxers, mind: there may be many good reasons for staff to refuse the injection and it would be wrong to infer a reason that may trigger unfair prejudice against doctors, nurses and support staff.

Javid is saying he’s relenting because the Omicron variant, now the dominant form of Covid-19 in the UK, is both milder than Delta and receding, but we all know that’s just an excuse.

The evidence shows that the bullies had to back down because they had painted themselves into a corner.

Downing Street appears likely to drop its policy of dismissing frontline NHS and care staff in England who refuse Covid vaccinations, a minister has strongly indicated, after nursing and care organisations called for this to happen.

#BorisJohnson under pressure as Cabinet colleagues demand inquiry into #NusratGhani ‘muslimness’ claim

Boris Johnson: the accusations against him are mounting up.

Now what is he going to do?

After Nusrat Ghani joined complaints against Conservative whips, saying one had told her she had been sacked as a transport minister because her “Muslimness” was making colleagues “uncomfortable”, both Health Secretary Sajid Javid and Education Secretary Nadhim Zahawi have insisted on an investigation.

Both are themselves Muslims, although Javid is non-practising.

He tweeted the following on the subject:

And this is what Zahawi had to say about it:

Dominic Raab, as Deputy Prime Minister, said there could be no inquiry unless Ms Ghani submitted a formal complaint, which she declined to do at the time.

But Ms Ghani has now added to her original claim by saying prime minister Boris Johnson, while refusing to get involved when she was sacked, had offered her only one way of making a complaint – and it was inappropriate:

So it seems she spoke to Johnson in June 2020 about her sacking in February that year but he said he “could not get involved”.

Instead, she’s saying, he suggested she should use the internal Conservative Party complaints process – that would not be appropriate for something that happened on government business; she says she doesn’t even know whether the words spoken to her about her sacking were by a member of the Conservative Party.

This seems to be a claim that Tory chief whip Mark Spencer was mistaken when he said her claim about being sacked because of her “Muslimness” related to a conversation with him.

The new statement calls Johnson’s behaviour into question yet again: Did he misdirect Ms Ghani?

And it comes at the worst possible time for a prime minister who is under extreme pressure over his conduct regarding the now-infamous Downing Street parties that took place while the rest of us – including the Queen – were under lockdown…

… and who is already facing questions about whether Tory whips have been blackmailing MPs to prevent them from submitting letters of “no confidence” in his leadership.

With Cabinet ministers now asking hard questions, will this be the straw that finally breaks Boris Johnson?

Why are the #Tories handing £270 million pounds to #privatehealth if #Covid19 is declining?

Backhander: private health companies are being given a fortune in public money by the Tory government – and the cash will go to firms that are part-owned by Tories and Tory donors.

Can anybody make sense of this?

But all the indications are that the Omicron wave has peaked and Covid-19 is declining.

There is no reason at all to give any public money to private health companies for Covid-related services.

But the money has gone and is not coming back. It seems clear there is only one reason for it:

The only reason This Writer can find for such funding is the one that has been causing the Tories all their problems at the moment: deception.

Only recently, we were told NHS England did not have enough Covid-19 tests – LFT or PCR – to cover demand; indeed, it had to take four million kits from NHS Wales in an effort to cover the shortfall.

So when we see that the number of infections is down to around 70,000, can we really believe it? Or is the investment in private healthcare justified?

It doesn’t matter – because the Tory government is deceiving us in any event.

If the number of infections isn’t really down, then the government is lying about that; if it is, then the government is lying about the need to pay private health.

My personal opinion? The number of deaths appears to have reduced as well as infections (although we’ll have to see what Monday’s data brings), so I’m willing to hazard a guess that the Omicron wave has broken.

That means there’s absolutely no reason to give any money to the profit-grubbers and Sajid Javid is simply lining shareholders’ pockets for no reason other than squandering your cash.

Is this the reason #DowningStreet #police aren’t being grilled about all those parties?

Take a look at this image:

For those who can’t see well or read from images, the text states: “This is Bas Javid. He’s the brother of Sajid Javid the Health Minister. He’s also the Assistant Commissioner for Professional Standards. In case you’re wondering why the police aren’t investigating the conduct of police officers at Number 10.”

It is indeed an image of Sajid Javid’s brother Basit, who is indeed an Assistant Commissioner at the Metropolitan Police.

He was promoted to the role while Sajid Javid was Home Secretary. Feel free to come to your own opinion about whether the appointment was entirely based on his own merits.

I would also encourage you to draw your own conclusion as to whether this close relative of a member of Boris Johnson’s Cabinet may have been influenced to veto any investigation into the conduct of Metropolitan Police officers guarding Downing Street at the times of the 13 parties alleged to have taken place there between May 2020 and April 2021.

Strangely, I have been able to find no information on the Metropolitan Police website (so far) to indicate that Professional Standards is indeed Basit Javid’s responsibility. Odd, that. Other organisations make the responsibilities of their senior staff abundantly clear.

(UPDATE: Many thanks to Cathy – @NarcAware – on Twitter for providing this –

– which seems to clear up the matter.)

Of course we know already that Met Commissioner Cressida Dick was at Balliol College, Oxford, around the same time as Boris johnson.

There really does seem to be an interconnected network of people in the highest positions of power in the UK. Whether it really has led to the kind of corruption described in the image at the top of this article or not, the impression it gives could hardly be worse.

Arrogant #SajidJavid admonishes #RosenaAllinKhan over #tone. But where were #Tory MPs’ #masks?

Sajid Javid (left) and Rosena Allin-Khan (right): he’s the Health Secretary but she’s the doctor. And he’s still got the cheek to lecture her.

Tories never learn, do they?

It comes of being rich, entitled (or so they think) and devastatingly ignorant.

So it should come as no surprise that, after an incident in which failure to wear masks in the House of Commons led to a Covid-19 scare, many Tories have gone back to lounging around the Chamber without masks on (presumably on the basis of the Rees-Mogg principle: that you can’t catch Covid-19 from other people if you know them personally).

And when a Labour MP who is a serving NHS doctor pointed this out and asked when Tory backbenchers would start wearing their masks…

The new Health Secretary had the cheek to try to police her “tone”:

Take note of the following:

And who was the first person to tell Dr Allin-Khan to watch her tone, again?

Ah, yes – Matt Hancock.

Hancock was a useless Health Secretary. He knew nothing about his subject and spent the whole of his tenure handing out fat contracts to friends of the Conservative Party and getting nothing in return while the Covid-19 death toll became the worst in the world.

He was kicked out of office for snogging a former college friend he had nepotistically installed as his adviser at the Department of Health and Social Care – possibly for the purpose of snogging her – in contravention of social distancing requirements.

And Javid? As David Osland states above, he’s an investment banker. In addition to suggesting that Dr Allin-Khan’s tone was wrong, he showed that, like Hancock, he doesn’t know how to keep the UK safe from Covid-19:

He’s incompetent and the country is not in a mood to tolerate that right now. He’s on borrowed time.

#Covid19: #Omicron – and another #Tory bid to ruin our #Christmas

Risk: this is a German advert showing how masks reduce the risk of catching Covid-19 and its variants. People in the UK should take heed because the advice from our own government isn’t worth the time taken to listen to it.

There comes a time when even the most tolerant observer must give in and admit that the government is deliberately sabotaging its own fight against the Covid-19 pandemic. Doesn’t there?

Surely, if you didn’t reach it in July when Boris Johnson condemned millions more people to catch the virus and at least 16,000 to die of it with his misnamed “Freedom Day”…

… you must have reached it now, with Sajid Javid’s contradictory and nonsensical plan to battle the so-called Omicron Variant that has apparently arrived here from South Africa.

We know from experience that certain steps need to be taken to stop the spread of a new variant – especially one that is considered highly-infectious:

Travel from its countries of origin must be stopped (or at least severely restricted), and all visitors from those countries tested – before they have contact with anybody other than those who were on the plane (or whatever transport) with them. There’s none of that in Javid’s plan.

Working people should be told to work from home, rather than being forced to come to offices where the disease could be spread. Javid absolutely will not permit this, for reasons unknown. It won’t even harm the economy so what is his argument against it?

Everybody should go back to wearing masks in public places immediately. Javid said mask-wearing should resume on buses and in shops, but not elsewhere – and from Tuesday (November 30).

And of course schools should be masked up and ventilated, and all efforts made to ensure that children don’t catch and spread the virus in any form. We’re seeing no changes in schools at all.

Possibly the worst act of sabotage is the one the Tories pull all the time – creating a false division between “us” and “them”.

In this case, it seems our capitalist vaccine manufacturers decided that, having provided protection to the UK (and others, I’m sure), Johnny Foreigner could pay double and more.

Oh, and – as previously noted – a large number of vaccines were lost because they hit their “use by” date before they could be used.

As a result, developing countries have been much slower to vaccinate:

This doesn’t mean they have been more successful at stopping the spread of the virus – as some have insisted.

According to the BBC, high numbers of cases increase the risk of mutations, thereby increasing the risk of a mutation that leads to a new variant – because it has changed in a way that helps it survive.

So while the Omicron variant is likely to have come from a single “Patient Zero” who was unable to defeat the virus, it is likely to have been made possible by the virus infecting a large number of people; this particular person was just the one whose illness created a new threat.

So it is also important to take action now that will ensure that everybody is vaccinated against the virus and able to fight it. Sajid Javid has said and done nothing about this.

Meanwhile, the parade of Covid-19 nonsense continues to march across our TV and computer screens.

Andrew Marr, who should have known better, actually asked Health Secretary Sajid Javid whether Omicron was more transmissible than the others because “it transmits through the air” – just like every single form of Covid-19But most of the public will have heard this without engaging their brain to spot the error.

Of course the NHS is being ramped up with 50,000 new nurses – right? Wrong. Instead, Javid has announced “NHS Reserves” – a scheme to drag retired NHS staff back out to cover the gaps in care created by 11 years of Tory resource starvation and nearly two years of a deadly pandemic.

I think this plan is known as “Everybody get out and push”.

The NHS is, in fact, less well-equipped to fight Covid-19 than it was in March last year because Javid and his forerunner Matt Hancock have quietly closed 5,000 NHS beds in that time, with no explanation given.

Oh, and if you thought the Covid-19 gravy train had stopped rolling…

Put it all together and it seems unreasonable to ascribe this level of wrong-headedness to simple incompetence.

It’s a deliberate attempt to sabotage the fight against Covid-19, isn’t it? And just in time for Christmas.

If a new Covid-19 variant started in Africa it’s because countries like the UK withheld vaccines

Back in the UK? A new Covid-19 variant could be spreading here because western governments refused to provide vaccines to Africa in good time.

Health Secretary Sajid Javid has reacted in typical slow fashion to the threat of a new Covid-19 variant from South Africa.

He said the variant “may pose substantial risk to public health” as it has “an unusually high number of mutations” and added that “we must move quickly, and at the earliest possible moment” to prevent its spread in the UK.

Too late, I think.

And if it is, our Tory government is probably doubly to blame.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t vaccine distribution to many African countries delayed because the manufacturers wanted more cash, and then because they couldn’t be used, having reached their expiry date?

It’s no good saying Africa had managed to restrict the virus more successfully than the so-called developed nations if this has only given it a chance to become more deadly!

And it lends credence to conspiracy theorists who want us to believe organisations like our Tory government are using the virus and its variants to control us – pitching us from one threat to another while they follow their own selfish agendas in the background where they can’t be seen.

Think of the £300 billion spent on Covid-19-related commercial contracts, most of which were not honoured.

Boris Johnson and his Health Secretaries Matt Hancock and now Sajid Javid had the opportunity to show the world how to defeat a deadly pandemic and they didn’t. Instead they sank into a mire of duplicity and “let the bodies pile up in their thousands”.

It seems this latest scare is simply the next chapter in their catalogue of corruption.

Don’t let Javid gaslight you: the Covid-19 crisis in the UK is worse than ever

Smug: Sajid Javid’s oily grin covers his corruption. He’s lying to you about the spread of Covid-19 across the UK.

Health Secretary Sajid Javid is using the UK’s Tory media to lie to you: Covid-19 in the UK is worse than anywhere in Europe.

Their claim that infections and deaths in the UK are lower than numbers in mainland Europe is a lie:

For the proof, This Writer expects you need look no further than your own experiences.

Under lockdown, I did not have any personal friends, family or other connections who contracted the disease.

Since it finished, the number of these acquaintances who have caught it has proliferated. A friend contacted me only yesterday to apologise for being out-of-touch; he had been self-isolating after contracting the disease.

And the presence of one person at a girl’s 16th birthday party has resulted in an outbreak that endangered that icon of This Site, Mrs Mike. Fortunately she has repeatedly tested negative.

I’m sure my experience is not unique.

The simple fact is that the UK’s response to Covid-19 has always been pathetically poor – far behind those of the European nations, and ridiculous in comparison with places like New Zealand.

Tory ministers like Sajid Javid have an interest in gaslighting you into believing the opposite because they have been using the pandemic as cover to milk the public purse dry, handing out hundreds of billions of pounds of public money to their friends and themselves (through shares in firms) on the pretext of buying protective measures but in fact receiving nothing in return.

They know that if the BBC tells you everything is all right here – or at least, better than elsewhere, you’ll probably believe that lie.

Don’t you?

But it is a deadly lie.

People are still dying at a rate of around 200 a day. That’s more than 1,000 every week. Sajid Javid is perfectly happy to oversee this mass slaughter. The dead and dying aren’t his friends and relatives, after all.

He’s banking on you taking in all his lies, saying, “Oh well, I’m all right, Jack!” and carrying on in blithe ignorance of your danger.

How long will you continue to do so?

Until you suddenly stop being all right?

Until you’re taken to hospital, because your vaccine injection has lost its efficacy?

Until you die? By then it will be too late for you – because you let a Tory deceive you with a lie.

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.
