The Tories, eagerly supported by their Liberal? Democrats? have quietly been able to push through the complete privatisation of the NHS, a project carefully constructed by their big money party backers in the Health Insurance industry over many years.
The BBC especially has lost all credibility as far as it’s impartiality stands. Since the election there has been not one article ctiticising the Governments plans for the NHS. Maybe not suprising when the Conservative appointed BBC boss is the ex Conservative Chairman.
The Government has deliberately underfunded sections of NHS services to ensure they fail and have to be ‘rescued‘ by private investment.
In the US, 70% of those forced into Bankruptcy because of medical treatment costs initially had full health care insurance.
The prominent blogger Sunny Hundal pointed out this interview in the British Medical Journal with Dr Lucy Reynolds, research fellow at London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Dr Reynolds has studied the background of the NHS in detail, and in the interview she shares her view of the consequences of the NHS reforms and possible privatisation of the NHS
Today’s adverse weather conditions have affected refuse and recycling collection, especially in the south Sefton area, mainly on side streets.
Our current advice is to place wheelie bins and recycling out as normal for collections on Friday, March 21.
Collections are operating as normal in the north of the borough, but some collections from RAF Woodvale to the
Liverpool boundary may be missed.
Residents who missed their collections on Friday, March 22 due to the heavy snowfall and poor ground conditions, should leave their bins and recycling out. Crews will endeavour to recover any missed collections on Monday, March 25.
Recycling collections, run by Palm Recycling, The Council’s Contractor, will mirror the arrangements operated by Sefton Council.
Any updated information on collections will be reported on www.sefton.gov.uk
and via our twitter feed @SeftonCouncil.
I have lived for 58 years. I have met millions of people of all races and religions. I can never recall anyone of any race or creed displaying a face like this to me:
This is your Chancellor George Osbourne MP, architect of the Pastie tax, granny tax etc and now the millionaires holiday home subsidy:-
“In yesterday’s budget George Osborne clawed back £2.2bn from the Department of Health – money that’s desperately needed on the NHS front-line. This morning, the NHS confirmed that over 800 nursing jobs were lost in the last month alone”
It turns out that, not only will millionaires, including most of the ToryLibdem Cabinet, get a £100,769 tax cut on April1st, the budget now gives them the chance of a Government subsidised Holiday home.
The “Help To Buy” scheme might even allow people to get a subsidy to purchase a £600,000 house for conversion to one bedroom flats or bedsits to make maximum capital by taking advantage of and profiteering from, those forced out of their houses due to the “Bedroom Tax”
Shadow chancellor Ed Balls Says:-“It now seems his mortgage scheme will help people no matter how high their income to buy a subsidised second home worth up to £600,000,”
“From what I can see, the government is basically saying if you have got a spare room in a social home, you will pay the bedroom tax but if you want a spare home and you can afford it, we will help you buy one. That is not just tax cuts for millionaires, it is – dare I say it – a spare homes subsidy.”
I think that any funding for housing should have been invested on building Social Housing for the millions on council and Housing association waiting lists.
That the application for the Grant of a Premises Licence in respect of 95-97 Liverpool Road, Crosby subject to certain conditions including closing doors and windows where amplification is used and regular meetings between the Licence holder and residents.

“I hope the venue creates lots of jobs for young people as youth unemployment has risen in by 48,000*, to almost a million 16-24 year olds” *(Commons Library 20/3/13)
I am a member of the Liverpool John Lennon Airport Joint consultative committee. I posted earlier that at the last meeting the recently formed Norwegian State airline FLY NORWEGIAN announced a new 3x daily service between Copenhagen in Denmark; which is the Scandinavian hub airport and Liverpool.

Here is official confirmation today on Twitter:-
I guess the latest ToryLibdem budget looks (as usual) as though it will punish the poor and vulnerable in order to reward the better off and millionaires. A section regarding the Bank of England spoke of “relaxing targets” which indicates they will no longer attempt to control inflation. This at a time when benefits and low wages are cut, frozen and VAT is at it’s highest level ever.
Labour MP John McDonnell suspects further hidden measures to reduce social security:
Looks like significant amount of further welfare cuts hidden in depths of budget and public sector pay cuts disguised as progression limits

Ed MillibandMP labour leader concluded his budget reply with the following
“The Chancellor has failed the tests of the British people:
Growth, living standards and hope.
But he has not just failed their tests. He has failed on his own as well.
Today the Chancellor joined twitter.
He could have got it all into 140 characters.
Growth down. Borrowing up. Families hit. And millionaires laughing all the way to the bank. #downgradedChancellor.
Mr Deputy Speaker, more of the same is not the answer to the last three years.
More of the same is the answer of a downgraded Chancellor, in a downgraded Government.
Britain deserves better than this”
