Tory Privatisation: Richard Branson just bought NHS childrens department

Children’s health services in parts of western England have been privatized under a £64-million deal with Richard Branson’s Virgin Care, the Western Daily Press reports. The sale comes as a £2.2-billion black hole threatens the future of public healthcare.

National Health Service (NHS) bosses defended the decision to privatize community child health services in Wiltshire, saying it would offer a solution to shortcomings in providing “consistent” care across the country.
However, critics say privatization will lead to substandard care and will be more expensive.
The deal with Virgin Care comes as the head of England’s NHS secured an extra £3.8 billion for frontline care, having convinced Chancellor George Osborne the healthcare budget must be “front-loaded.”
According to one insider, NHS Chief Executive Simon Stevens had taken part in “vibrant discussions” with Osborne before the Chancellor was convinced of his case.
However, in reality the extra funds will come in part from cuts to other areas of the NHS, including nursing training.
It also comes against a backdrop of NHS debt, with the health service expected to end the financial year with a £2.2-billion deficit.
Despite the injection of extra funds, critics have argued that public health services still face budget cuts. Social care, directed by the council and including sexual health and stop smoking clinics, are all facing cuts.
Social care budgets have also been cut, placing more pressure on the NHS as more medically fit people are forced to stay in hospitals due to lack of social services.
Rob Webster, chief executive of NHS Confederation, welcomed the extra NHS funding but said, “We are clear that significant risks remain.”
"In particular, the NHS will fail to deliver good care without adequate social care provision and improvements in the public’s health.
“Local government budgets have been cut dramatically over the last five years and there is no doubting the knock-on impact this has on the NHS.
“If the funding gap in social care is not adequately addressed, costs will be shifted to health and if we don’t use resources to keep people healthier for longer, we store up trouble for the future,” he added.

UK Lord Justice wanted age of consent lowered to the age of 4

Lord Justice Fulford was named last year as an adviser to the QueenHe was a key backer of the notorious Paedophile Information Exchange Police suspect the group of abusing children on an ‘industrial scale’He is revealed as a founder member of campaign to defend PIEAt the time it was calling for the age of consent to be lowered to just fourI clashed with Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) global leaders at the Wales conference in Swansea in 1977. Tom O’Carroll is still accepted and active on a sexnet chat group of experts in “sexology” although he writes openly as a pedophile. And the scholarly organizers of the Swansea conference at the University were part of his efforts. Below a summary of my intro to him in my book, Stolen Honor, Stolen Innocence, 2013. This academic pedophile lobby has continued and grown, training second generation and third generation supporters as “scholars” for pedophile equality and “rights.” In 1981 I realized they were global.

Jews in Israel call for genocide of Palestinians in a massive rally ignored by the media

The West’s media—under orders to censor any news of Jewish supremacism—has refused to publicise this week’s massive hate rally attended by thousands of Jews in Tel Aviv which called for all Arabs to be killed. The Western media’s blackout is in marked contrast to their blanket coverage of the tiniest example of what it calls “white racism.” The Tel Aviv rally—organized to support an Israeli soldier who murdered a wounded Palestinian by shooting him in the head as the victim lay on his back—was marked by chants and banners calling for mass murder. The rally took place on Tuesday evening, April 19, in Tel Aviv’s Yitzhak Rabin Square, and the many thousands of Jews in the crowd were, according to reports in the Israeli media, baying for blood.
One Jewish reporter, Dan Cohen, tweeted that many in the crowd chanted, “Death to Arabs,” a frequently heard rallying cry at anti-Palestinian demonstrations. Ahmed Tibi, a Palestinian lawmaker in Israel’s parliament, posted an image of a sign displayed …

The elite's use young children's blood to live longer and so do I says Paypal Billionaire

Billionaire PayPal founder Peter Thiel said that he believes transfusions of blood from young people can reverse his ageing process and allow him to live a vastly extended lifespan.



In an interview with Inc.com’s Jeff Bercovici, Thiel said that the practice — known as parabiosis — is the closest modern science has come to creating an anti-aging panacea.

Thiel — a hedge funder who acted as a delegate for Donald Trump and spoke at the 2016 Republican National Convention — is reportedly obsessed with defying death and extending the human lifespan. He has injected funds into startups that are experimenting with ways to forestall the body’s inevitable decline and death.

“I’m looking into parabiosis stuff,” Thiel told Bercovici, “where they [injected] the young blood into older mice and they found that had a massive rejuvenating effect. … I think there are a lot of these things that have been strangely underexplored.”

Parabiosis experiments began in the 1950s with crude exercises in which rats …
