NHS Debate on BBC NEWSNIGHT

Twenty two million eight Billion are figures being bandied about. The problem is no more money and despite it being denied  social services cuts are hurting more than anyone is daring to say. A&E waiting time's are horrendous, getting a GO appointment in many places is impossible. Every time we get a new government they bring in a new reorganisation scheme to save money and it achieves nothing like what is promised and inevitably costs many many millions of pounds.. The debate is not coming up with any answer just blaming each other.

BBC shows UKIP on two seats

To use social media terminology LOL which means that I am laughing out loud..  Farrage thinks he  would be in a position to offer coalition support to Conservative government. Excuse me as I pick myself up holding my side's which are hurting from so much laughing. Nigel Farrage looks set to be unsuccessful in Thanet South and resign as leader of Ukip.so if UKIP manages to retain the two incumbent MPs I personally would be very surprised. I am backing Will Scobie to win Thanet South because of the fact he is a local. Will lives within the Thanet South constituency and comes from a local Family he is married to a local girl and he knows Thanet and its requirements far better than some stranger who is talking the talk but cannot walk the walk. Both Farrage' s Ukip and the Conservative candidate who himself is a UKIP defector live miles away. So when you put your cross in the box next week vote for Labour's Will Scobie. Me well my postal vote papers arrived today I will be voting well before May the seventh.

can't sleep the election is so exciting

I have had a bad couple of days my MS  kicked in and I have been sleeping loads but now I am wide awake at two twenty three AM. I don't blame the fact I sweatshirt four hour out of the last forty eight it must be the excitement of the election. YAWN. is it me or is this all getting a bit slow and tedious?
It looks as if new boy Nigel Farrage is going to resign, he keeps trying to talk up UKIP' s chances but in all honesty I doubt they will get more than the two seats they hold at present or did before parliament was dissolved. Caroline Lucas seems set to retain her seat and that brings me to the scary nationalist party. Yes the Scary nationalist party want to hold who ever it is in Downing street to ransom! The SNP will not rest until they have said bye bye to the UK and rebuilt Hadrians Wall. The Scots want Labour to need them and Millibands likely enough going to be fooled that he can keep the crazy Scott's woman on side. NAHH NOT A CHANCE, but if he does do a deal it will be because of his ego not his personality.
So my prediction is if I manage to go to sleep now and hibernation lasts around six months I will be waking back up just in time for the next election and to see the Greeks exit the EU. Don't forget you heard it here first.
I am going to sleep now please wake me in October!

SNP versus UKIP

People seem to have forgotten the racist rantings of UKIP and tuned into the SNP deal making shenanigans. The SON will never be happy until as there name suggests they achieve Scottish independence. So unless the Labour Party want to see UNITED KINGDOM PLC  ripped apart I cannot see anything to be gained by a SNP/lab pact.Nicola Sturgeon is single minded and as such won't do anything to benefit England unless she can gain more for Scotland. This election seems to now be about SNP more than the crackpots and loonies that was is and always will be UKIP

UKIP predicted to only get one seat

Most pollsters are showing ukip only managing to manage to secure one seat in next  months election. They don't think UKIP will do any better than the Greens and it has taken them years to manage to secure the position held by Caroline lucas. I love the green party they are so imaginative and off the wall that instead of being seen as mad they are regarded as wonderful. I class tulip as the polar opposite to them.

BBC NewsNight shouty man

Laughing to myself, on BBC Newsnight they were discussing immigration and they had a man who because he spoke louder thought he was right. He raised his voice and spoke over people so to himself he was winning the argument. Trouble was it was a debate and anyone who has spoken with a child knows you can shout and a child will buckle. Try that with adults and you look like a bully. Exactly how he looked I do hope he never appears on television again because I will turn it off. I am now going to Google Jon gaunt to see who he is.
Found this
Jon’s hard-hitting show on FUBAR takes on the current affairs of the day with lively debate and topical guests. As always Jon encourages listeners to phone in and get involved – without the constraints of the PC brigade or the outdated regulator stifling free speech.
If you want to get involved email the show, or call 0203 397 1683.
http://fubarradio.com/shows/no-nonsense-with-jon-gaunt/
The site says he is award winning. I won't be looking for him nor listening to him ever again I think he is a loud mouth and a bully from what I have seen of him on TV tonight.

Vote Labour get Scottish referendum

If the political commentators are to be believed a vote for Edd and Edds Labour party will end up with Nicola Sturgeon wanting another Scottish referendum as the price for compliance. True or not I find it scary that we may well end up with a situation where the tail is wagging the dog. Pollsters best guesses is that the SNP could become the third party in British politics. And seeing as they lost out on winning independence I expect there to be a hi price to pay for any cooperation. I know the parties are all claiming and counter claiming but my prediction is another election before the years out.

SNP & UKIP are just letters

I smile each time I turn on the tellie I hear someone talking in these abbreviations. It's a guess work Nd if this happens with this party and the a coalition between this one they can get the support of that one. NO ONE KNOWS WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN!!!
I am reminded of the 1960's hippie adage "image they threw a war and no one turned up" well the forecasting of what will happen next month is a bit like that no one has voted yet and the pundits are telling us the results before a vote has been cast. Clever when you look at it because I thought crystal balls were something from fairy tales.

Election fever more like slight temperature

Here we are in the run up to the election and we are in the period normally when things start to hot up. As of yet it is only Luke warm a slightly raised temperature, the thermometer has barely raised a degree let alone shot up. Yes I know the period of canvassing and drawing up manifesto' s has been longer but you can't tell me these guys didn't know what there manifestos were going to be, they have had four years and eleven months to plan for this moment so it is hardly a surprise is it. The debates are all but over and having seen them I fear for us in the next parliament. Personally I don't see an overall majority and personalities will rub together my prediction is for another election before the years up. But what do I know? Remember I predicted Greece to be gone before Christmas.
This political malarkey is fun but the funniest bit is all the poles are predicting UKIP to go down from two seats to only one, I just hope Farrage fails to win Thanet South. I am backing Will Scobie to win the seat with the Conservative chappie coming close behind. Farrage will be humiliated and resign. But this is all guess work. I will know the answer in a few weeks. All I can say up unroll then is make sure that you vote, your vote matters.

Tory Tax pledge is a old news story #lying

Tory tax plans to keep people on minimum wage out of tax for thirty hours. Let's look at this fantastic new plan for an election pledge. Let's look at this wonderful claim made by David Cameron.
Minimum wage for an adult is six pounds thirty one pence
Thirty hours per week =one hundred and eighty nine pounds thirty pence
Tax allowances start at ten thousand and six hundred pounds if I heard Nick Clegg correctly.
That works out approx two hundred and six pounds as a figure where taxation begins.

Anyone else see thirty hours minimum wage is already below the tax threshold?
Cameron is promising people NOT to pay tax on thirty hours work because they are not eligible to even pay tax. And I thought Farrage was a slippery lying toe rag.







I copied this from the Telegraph website

No-one on minimum wage will ever pay tax

The Conservatives will also "entrench in law" the principle that no-one working up to 30 hours a week on the minimum wage should ever pay income tax.
Under a Conservative government the minimum wage will be linked to the personal allowance, which the Tories want to raise to £12,500 by the end of the next Parliament.
They want to "permanently link" increases in the personal allowance to the increases in the minimum wage rather than inflation.
The approach means that if the minimum wage rises faster than expected, workers will still be exempt from paying income tax.
It is also an acutely political move, designed to steal Labour's thunder after Ed Miliband announced plans to increase the minimum wage to £8 an hour by 2020.
Mr Cameron said: "We're going to make sure work really pays in our country - not just now, but always. If Conservatives are in Government, we will change the law so that no-one earning the Minimum Wage will pay income tax - yes: the tax-free Minimum Wage.
"Its purpose - to link the personal tax allowance to inflation, so the lowest earners weren't over taxed and taxed by stealth. And what we're announcing today is the modern, compassionate Conservative version of that change.
"It means we can proudly say that this is the party of working people. For millions of workers not just the party of low income tax - the party of no income tax."

Keep Ukip out of Thanet

I have said elsewhere if I was able to vote for the Thanet South election candidate I wouldn't be voting Ukip. Read my promote Thanet blog for posts on why. If I could vote I would vote for the candidate who in my humble opinion is able to say he has the well being of the people of Thanet South in his heart, and that person is local lad Will Scobie. I know will and he is Thanet through and through went to school here grew up here and lives here. That is in my opinion worth voting for.

NHS and the election.

The election is still a month away so when will things start hotting up. Today the Labour party promised twenty thousand new nurses. Has anyone thought about this. Two shifts a day that works out to ten thousand, time off weekends and holidays the number substantially say by one third say to six thousand. That's not one extra nurse on every ward operating theatre maternity unit or district nurse throughout the land. Bear in mind how many nurses leave the profession each year and I am not counting the ones who leave and join a agency and are back doing the same job next week but costing the NHS hundreds if not thousands of pounds more in agency fees . I have spoken to doctors who are earning small fortunes by becoming locums. The recent NHS restructuring cost millions if not billions and has it improved the NHS? Personally I would say no. In my mind it is worse now than before the tinkering I know admissions have allegedly improved but those figures are massagd to make them look better. What I want to see is the party who will promise to improve the Health Service and then when in power actually do it. I actual fact I would like to see a party that fulfills its promises what ever they may be.

Election Debate recycling Promises

I smiled when watching the Leaders debate . You have heard all of these things before, it was basically the same promises recycled once again and they are promises that could have been acted upon. Cameron was once again promising more houses. In the last five years he has failed on that promise each and every year he has been Prime Minister. What annoys me about not building houses is each week we pay millions in housing benefits. Maybe private landlords deserve money for what are often over priced substandard properties. It must be a wealth redistribution scheme.

Here is a Tory Manifesto pledge that is recycled news THIRTY HOURS ON MINIMUM WAGE YOU WONT PAY TAX no Mr Cameron we aint thick YOU AINT EARNING ENOUGH TO PAY TAX
