Free market embraces the NHS!?!

If NHS care is universally excellent, why should patient feedback help determine the level of funding for GPs and hospitals!?!

When will schools follow!?!

Terror bail?

Should terror suspects ever be allowed bail!?!

His family discovered a suicide note before he went on the run...

Blears today, gone tomorrow (2)!

Just ask Cabinet Minister Hazel Blears if crime rates have increased under Labour!

Commuting inequalities?

How will Harriet Harman remove one cause of gender pay inequality, men earn more as they are prepared to travel further to work than women!?!

Brown outs!

How can an unpopular and unelected Prime Minister promise that aid is available for Zimbabwe if democracy is restored!?!

"On Saturday, Mr Brown described the decision to press ahead with the election as a "new low" for the Mugabe regime."

Stiff the English!

If 170 lives could be saved each year from 2011 when all Scottish men over 65 will be screened for aortic aneurisms, how many lives could be saved if the programme was rolled out in England too!?!

Poor Grammar Schools

Is Gordon Brown "a child of the first great wave of post-war social mobility" because he was selected for a fast track academic education at Kirkcaldy High School!?!

Assuming the "experiment" worked, Gordon Brown is Prime Minister afterall (!), why not offer other children the benefits of academic selection through the creation of new Grammar schools in the most deprived parts of Britain!?!

Yet more council strikes!

"Everything from local government will stop. We are talking about bins, schools, council offices, environmental health inspectors, [council spies, council tax collection, rubbish gestapo !?!] - all those important services that local communities rely on." - Heather Wakefield, Unison's head of local government.

When will public sector workers join their overpaid brethren in the private sector and share in these boardroom pay "bonanzas"!?!

PS If they are so worried about affecting the most vulnerable members of society, why do public sector workers have so many days off work!?!

Gone to the dogs!

If Nick Clegg's a Chihuahua, Gordon Brown's a St. Bernard and David Cameron's a Labrador, who's a little Shitzu!?!

Alistair Darling or George Osborne!?!

Jamal Bakhit

What would make the BBC choose to overlook Jamal Bakhit's nationality when describing the '24 year old homeless man' charged with "murdering a Swedish woman"!?!

He was born in Uganda!

Smokers to be?

How can half of Dundee's smokers afford to smoke when they live in poverty!?! What's gone wrong with their spending priorities!?!

Will the NHS Tayside pay me not to start smoking!?!

Friday, June 20, 2008

Crushing EU expansion?

How many more Irish voters would have said "No" to the Lisbon treaty if they had known that their vote would prevent Turkey from joining the European Union!?!

Why do European heads of state assume that the people they supposedly represent are in favour of further EU expansion!?!

"Without the Treaty of Lisbon there won't be any enlargement." - French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

Taking Liberties!

Is Liberty director Shami Chakrabarti suppressing free speech when she threatens to sue a cabinet minister she accuses of trying to smear her!?!

A plague upon both their houses!

How ironic that whilst UK troops are fighting and dying for "democracy" in Afghanistan and Iraq, the UK ratifies the Lisbon treaty without the promised referendum!

Abu Qatada

Is Jordan a safer place to live than the UK as it's use of torture to obtain evidence against terrorists prevents them from being deported there!?!

It's ironic that a man with such hatred of the West is allowed to remain in the West for his own protection!

Blears today, gone tomorrow!

Would disciplinary action have been taken against civil servants sending data to Hazel Blears "in breach of data security rules" if her laptop had not been stolen!?!

PS Will this wipe the incessant smile off her face!?!

Return of Mental Arithmetic!

Why will it take 10 years and £187m to train "specialists" to teach basic mathematics to schoolchildren!?!

"The aim is to counter the prevailing culture in which, Sir Peter says, the UK remains one of the few advanced nations where it is socially acceptable - even fashionable - to profess an inability to cope with mathematics."

"I did maths at school and for one year at university but I don't think I was ever very good at it - and some people would say it shows." - Gordon Brown, 24th April 2007.

Bankrupt Labour!

Can the near bankrupt Labour party afford to contest the by-election in Haltemprice and Howden following the resignation of David Davis MP!?!

"A by-election is not necessary and it is irresponsible to be calling a by-election when it is unnecessary." - Labour's deputy leader, Harriet Harman

David Davis Resignation

Does David Davis MP qualify for a £30,000 tax-free resettlement grant for resigning as an MP!?!

Money, money, money!

Would the EU still need to take action over Britain's budget deficit if Government spending had "more foresight, better business planning and some common sense"!?!

"The Home Office has been criticised by a group of MPs for spending £29m on an asylum accommodation centre which was never even built."

"The Ministry of Defence has been accused of a "gold standard cock-up" over eight helicopters which have cost £422m but have yet to fly for the RAF."

BBC Wales, Scotland and little England!

Why assume that 51m English people want to know what 5m Scots or 3m Welsh people are getting up to on the BBC news each day?

Do people living in Dover and Folkstone need more BBC news coverage about what's happening in France!?!

I'm quite happy for Wales and Scotland to be "far off countries of which I know little" to paraphrase Chamberlain as it only makes me angry to know how my taxes are spent on luxuries denied to me in England!

Protecting the Economy!

When will Gordon Brown be locked up without trial for 42 days for the sake of the economy!?!

The Benefits of Obesity?

How many benefit fraudsters avoid being caught as they are too lazy to play bowls, referee football matches or do martial arts!?!

There's an obesity crisis don't ya know!

Labour's Poverty of Thought!

300,000 more pensioners are in poverty than 1998, so what!?!

At least they can swim for free!

Stampless duty!

How will the Government replace the lost revenue from the ultimate tax on mobility and self-improvement, stamp duty, as house sales fall to a 30 year low!?!

Barry George is innocent!

How could a "loner" with an "exaggerated interest in women", "complex medical problems" and a "personality disorder" murder Jill Dando and leave no forensic evidence whatsoever!?!

Jill Dando was undoubtedly a "kind and generous" woman and Barry George is undoubtedly odd, however, that's not sufficient to convict someone of murder!

Police trawls?

What is the legal authority for letting Police trawl private property?

"The Met Police believe criminals used the centres in Park Lane, Hampstead and Edgware to store criminal assets. Armed police continue to guard the buildings as specialist officers search the 7,000 safety deposit boxes."

Demonising punishment!

Have the number of crimes committed by children fallen between 2001 and 2006 because the numbers criminalised has increased by 25%!?!

Perhaps the increased risk of being caught and punished is a deterrent!

Sunday, June 08, 2008

Number Crunching

638 - English secondary schools failing to reach minimum GCSE standards.

46 - Teachers sacked for failing to reach minimum teaching standards in England since 2001.

Free swimming

How will swimming pools ration limited space when they will soon be free to all!?!

Will there be swimming pool waiting lists or will appointments be required 48 hours in advance!?!

PS How many new swimmers will take up the sport or is it just a subsidy to existing swimmers!?!

Friday, June 06, 2008

Giles Chichester

Had anyone ever heard of MEP Giles Chichester, leader of the Conservative MEPS, before stepping down after breaking expenses rules!?!

No wonder it's currently the top BBC Politics news story!

Teflon Tony & Brillo Pad Brown!

If Tony Blair claims that Gordon Brown "is not to blame for Britain's economic woes", was Gordon Brown wrong to claim credit when Britain's economy was doing well!?!

Thursday, June 05, 2008

Not cutting it?

What short-term, headline grabbing measures will be introduced by Gordon Brown to cut knive crime!?!

Is it politically incorrect to notice that nearly all of London's knive victims in 2008 are young, black boys!?!

How will additional prosecutions reduce the percentage of blacks arrested or in prison!?!

Tuesday, June 03, 2008

New MP Starter Pack!

Congratulations to Edward Timpson MP on finally arriving at the House of Commons, please finds enclosed a link to the John Lewis website.

Everything is on the house!

How to save the BBC £1m?

Would Jonathan Ross have worked less hard if he was only earning £17m over three years at the BBC!?!

How ironic that a left-wing organisation sees nothing wrong with wealth re-distribution from the poorest TV licence payers to millionaire entertainers!

Religious leaflets

Would Muslims leafleting an area 'where many Christians live' ever be advised by Police to leave the area saying "If you come back here and get beat up, well you have been warned."

It's far more likely that Police would provide additional protection so they could carry on their lawful business!

PS Does Naved Siddiqi, of the Islamic Society of Britain, consider East Birmingham to be one of the "No-Go areas" that the Bishop of Rochester, the Right Reverend Dr Michael Nazir-Ali, referred to earlier this year!?!
