The Lizard and Liar Show

Facebook will allow UK election candidates to run false ads

The policy is being championed by Facebook executive Nick Clegg, the former deputy prime minister of the United Kingdom who himself once complained about “lies” spread during the 2016 Brexit referendum.

Nick Clegg – the man that lied to students to get their vote and then fucked them all over with increased University fees.

Trump, Zuckerberg – is there a lack of snipers in the USA? Does no-one want everlasting infamy and a Wikipedia page about themselves?

Frustrating Healthcare in Leics

It’s been just over a week since my wife was discharged from hospital.

Number of times a Physiotherapist has contacted us or called round: None
Number of times an Occupational Therapist has done the same: None
Same for the Multiple Sclerosis Nurses: None
District Nurses: Twice (but only because I refused to do her daily injection until they did proper Pressure area care)
Pain Management? No.
Social Services? Nope, none of them either
Any other NHS professionals? No

We do get 2 carers who call in 3 times a day for personal care. They are great. This care is ‘free’ for 6 weeks (from some arbitrary point we have been unable to determine – fall? or the discharge) after which we have to pay.

J’s left leg is the broken one. It’s always been hardest hit by the MS. The MS Nurse should know this so why has she not told the physio to concentrate on the right leg? No idea.
Why has the OT not visited to assess the home environment?
Why is my wife still struggling with pain?
What is the point of Social Services?
What really is the point of a Multiple Sclerosis Nurse? (Answer? NONE)

It is hugely frustrating here right now. As far as the NHS is concerned a target was hit – a ‘broken hip’ was discharged home within the allotted time frame. And now no-one in the NHS gives a flying fuck about anything.

And there is so little we can do. We have to accept whatever we are given.

Right now the ‘free care’ will disappear and then what? We have absolutely no idea at all.

Can someone please kill Jeremy Hunt and David Cameron? That might get some motivation going – assassinations should make a comeback. (Yes, that is an incitement to violence. Sue me).

New Real Labour?

“Depending on what happens next year in the May 2015 election, if one or two large trade unions start to say we need an alternative, they have the organisation and the financial clout to start developing a political party that could have its roots back in the working class,” he said.”

Good. It’s about time the UK had a real left-wing political party.

Running out of oil.

“Economists and politicians continually debate policies that will lead to a return to economic growth,” the authors note. “But because they have failed to recognize that the high price of energy is a central problem, they haven’t identified the necessary solution: weaning society off fossil fuel.”

This weaning will require a large deployment of efficiency measures, nuclear power, and renewable energy sources. All of this will take time, which is why efforts need to be started now..

“Economists and politicians continually debate policies that will lead to a return to economic growth,” the authors note. “But because they have failed to recognize that the high price of energy is a central problem, they haven’t identified the necessary solution: controlling the fossil fuel.”

This weaning will require a large deployment of troops and other weapons of war. All of this will take time, which is why efforts need to be started now..

FTFY.

Un-European

I was as likely to be right wing as I was to be in love with Europe on any level at all.

How European are you?

So, why do I despise the EU? France. That’s a significant factor. Spineless government who can’t control their lorry drivers or fishermen or farmers and a spineless media who will not control their politicians. Is there an English person who does like the French? It’s the corrupt EU politicians who sit around creating their own gravy train while throwing subsidies to every farmer in France. It’s the other countries in the EU – like Germany – who say that Britain should follow all the EU rules about foreign competition while breaking those same laws to make sure their transport and infrastructure is built in Germany.

Back to that thing called France. The EU states that when a refugee lands in your country you have to take them in. But oh no, not the French. They must transport them in droves up to Calais and let them cross to the UK. France is a big place, Calais isn’t that close to any border yet where do France put all these people? they hate the English so they push these people toward the UK. They could do something, they choose not to. And even if Calais were close to a border the French would have to push them back to where they had come from. But no, some slack security will let them through.

If you thought the Euro was a good idea you need your head felt because to be honest you are stupid. It would never ever work.

Play videogames? Ubisoft use the most ridiculous DRM in their games. French company.

Mathew Fraser says the CSA’s decision may be linked to an anti-English language reflex. “Facebook and Twitter are, of course, American social networks. In France, they are regarded, at least implicitly, as symbols of Anglo-Saxon global dominance.” France24.com

I don’t think I have a problem with many others. Spain, Portugal, Belgium, Netherlands, Italy etc are all fine. So remove France and Germany from the EU and it might – just might – be tolerable. Until then I’m all in favour of leaving it and all it’s treaties behind and getting on without the bureaucratic corrupt nepotistic anti-UK brigade over the Channel.

A WTF from the PM

BBC Mr Cameron referred to the situation in 1940 during an interview with Sky News in which he was asked about the changing nature of the “special relationship” with the US and his meeting with President Obama on Tuesday.

“I think it is important in life to speak as it is and the fact is that we are a very effective partner of the US but we are the junior partner,” he said.

“We were the junior partner in 1940 when we were fighting the Nazis.”

David Cameron is in charge of the govt and he hasn’t the balls to stop sucking up to the US. Still, those that voted the Govt in must be proud of him. Someone has to be. But the rest of knew and now have the proof that he’s an idiot. A toffee-nosed, silver spoon in the mouth sycophant. I wonder when he’ll have the history books changed.
