Virgin on the Ridiculous!

Richard Branson and Virgin – Virgin on the ridiculous more like!  The NHS has gone into competition and, it seems that what was formerly the spine of our culture, the NHS is presently a sick joke.


On March 27, the Health and Social Care Bill was given Royal Assent and became law, but the NHS was being sliced up even before the Queen’s signature was barely dry.

You have to salute Richard Branson and, give him a hearty pat on the back, he appears to have his finger in every pie, like a little Jack Horner, that sat in the corner because he seems to have his pound of flesh in every cranny, and crack, no one is safe from his vulturous clutches.

He is presently picking over the rich, tender flesh of the NHS, but then he likes to be recognised as a maverick, with his huggable appearance, but just because he has cuddly features does not mean that in business he is any less antagonistic.

Richard Branson is nothing more than a businessperson, with nothing more than a greedy advantage of circumstances, with a small consideration for morality and,  the ramifications to others.

The Virgin Care takeover has revealed two primary lies that have been put forward by the government.  The first was to deny that the Reform Bill symbolised any type of privatisation of the NHS.


There is no indication of a takeover by Virgin and, there is no Virgin branding on anything, all it says is NHS, but Assura Wandle is a partnership between 29 local GP practices and Virgin Care and, when I looked online to find out about them, it clearly said in black and white, that

Information from

the Care Quality Commission

This service is no longer registered with CQC


Checking national standards in hospitals,


Care Quality Commission

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) checks to see if care homes, nursing homes and home care services in England are meeting Government standards. CQC registers care services that meet the standards, inspects them to check that they continue to do so, and takes action when they don’t.

So, it allegedly appears that Richard Branson took a deliberate approach and, an uncaring approach of the situation.


It’s really about semantics, in principle the NHS will still exist for patients; they will still pay their National Insurance contributions and, access the facilities, which will still be without charge, well at least for the time being.

This is what the government means when it maintains that it will keep the NHS safe, but what it really means is that the NHS will just be an in name only logo.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
