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.

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.

Tory MP's Private Company in Charge of Election votes and counts

Tory MP Peter Lilley’s company IDOX was given contracts across Scotland by SNP and Labour councils to quietly privatise the entire electoral process and control of postal votes and election counts across Scotland.


The contracts were awarded to ensure private control of all Scottish elections for the three-year period covering the EU election, the general election, the EU referendum and the Scottish Elections which allow IDOX to control, open, count and put forward "postal" ballot papers to be put into ballot boxes right up to the 10 pm deadline.

By May 2013 IDOX boasted they already had control of elections and voter registration and votes for 13 million people across the UK in the privatisation of all elections that most voters in the UK are completely unaware of.

Does this mean it is possible for postal votes to be binned (if private operators don't agree with the vote provided) and replaced using signatures they store electronically and can ballot papers be made up in pe…

Jill Dando tried to expose BBC paedophile ring but 'nobody wanted to know (including exclusive first look at the new documentary)

MURDERED BBC TV presenter Jill Dando raised the issue of a possible paedophile ring in the corporation - but no action was taken.



A former colleague and friend told us that Miss Dando, from Weston-super-Mare, tried to get bosses to investigate what was going on. The source said that the Crimewatch presenter was told that 'big name stars' and BBC staff were involved in abuse. A file was eventually handed to senior management in the mid-1990s, but no action was taken on the matter.
The source, who remains anonymous, said: “She compiled a file of complaints but she was not really an investigative journalist, just a presenter. “She passed the information to someone else and they gave it back. No one wanted to know.” Miss Dando was shot outside her London home in 1999 at the age of 37.
