Crowning Glory

Why on earth has Victoria Beckham been awarded Woman Of The Decade?

What did she do, spew out a couple of songs with the Spice Girls, which everyone ranted over for all of the five minutes, then she married David Beckham and, popped out mini Beckhams, who will grow up and, then become famous and, so the cycle begins once more.

Spice Girl turned fashion designer made me chuckle; I bet she doesn’t put any hard work into designing those costumes, but I would imagine that somebody else makes them, that is paid a lot less money than she does and, works more hours, then she puts her name on them and, gets the crowning glory.

When asked for style tips, she said: “Dress appropriately. Dress in a way that suits you. You have to feel comfortable”. Oh dear God, what is she giving us quotes now for heavens sake?

OH MATRON!

What happened to the good old fashioned NHS system where we had a Matron on each ward, making sure that every ward in the hospital ran without a hitch and, it did run smoothly; it was run like clockwork precision.

It appears to me that there are far too many CEO’s running the NHS these days, “Too many chiefs and not enough Indians” and, that is why the NHS is in upheaval because of poor preparation on the wards.

Bring Matrons back onto the ward, like we used to have and love, even though she was a stickler for regime, she got the job done and, there was never chaos on the wards when Matron was on the ward.

Of course, there should still be CEO’s to run the structure of the hospital, but back in the day, Matrons where the one’s that made sure that a hospital was run well, there was none of this poor practice back then because the Matron would not allow it.

A lengthy catalogue of sacrifices and victims

There really is no similarity; he may have been in and out of work, I can also remember being out of work for nine months, but I also had the assistance of my family and friends, but some don’t have that indulgence.

I can’t ever recall going hungry, or having to go to a food bank, or having my money penalised because I never done as I was told, or I never filled a form out properly.

I can remember quite clearly going from one job to another, but it was so effortless in those days, there were far more jobs at hand and, you could pick and choose at will, it was just never actually an issue.

Not only were there more jobs, but we were given Luncheon Vouchers towards food and, London Weighting. If I refer to those things when talking to my children, they look at me like I’m an antiquity from a different time, but it was not so long ago that these things were free and, now this is a thing of the past and, I’m sure they must have LV’s somewhere behind glass in a museum.

Not infrequently, the work and pensions secretary Iain Duncan Smith remembers being made redundant and, facing life on the dole. Of course, most people being sent down that road are not so lucky as to be able to depend on wealthy in-laws.

If you want people to work and, work well, then you have to give them a good enough motivation to work, after all, they are going to be doing it for a very long time and, they deserve to be treated with consideration, because even though people work for a living, to buy things, clothes, provisions, niceties, they are still working to give back to the state and, what do they get for it, some MP somewhere, saying that people who retire should not get their retirement benefits unless they do unpaid work for it. They have earned the right to their pension, they have worked all of their lives and, for what? So, it’s not startling when young people hear this and, don’t see the point of working all those years for absolutely zilch, when there is no motivation to do so.

Universal Credit

If it’s not broken, then don’t fix it, so why do the government always feel the need to fix things and, change what is not broken.  It is almost like they have this hole in their pockets and, they have this continual need to spend what they don’t really have and, then take it back off the hard working tax payer.

They have always got to have some new enterprise going, such as Universal Credit, which will end up costing them almost six times more than they previously said.  So, it’s this neediness to spend money all the time, like some overindulgent child… But where is this money coming from?

Injustice!

I believe that MP’s do a very good job with the bounds of their community and, I don’t think it is a case of whether they get paid too much, it is a case that others in government get paid far to much for the work that they do, which makes it look like MP’s get paid too little.

What would a working class man’s wages be?  Well, they are working class and, they should be getting working class money, not wealthy state money.  If you work in politics, then you should be given a wage that is the same of any working class person.

As for overheads, then that should be controlled by a body of people who resolve what expenses people in parliament are entitled to and, what they have to pay out of their own income.  Travelling to work should not be graded as an additional overhead, everyone goes to work by public transport or their own car, they pay for their own parking, own petrol etc etc and, so should anybody in the political arena.  What I will say is this, those that are in the Armed Forces, should be paid much more than any MP or anyone in any political arena.  They endanger their lives everyday of the week and, face death everyday, these are the people who should be paid much much more than they do and, should be looked after way after they have left the army in cases of injury.

THE GOVERNMENT HAVE ALL THEIR PRIORITIES WRONG, WRONG THAT RIGHT!

The Charity of England

As much as I do not approve with migrants claiming benefits and, that there should be a clamp down, I also think that there should be a clamp down on who qualifies to free health care, although there should still be rights for those who come to visit on holiday, as we wouldn’t want anyone dying on us whilst they are staying here, but on the other hand, if they are coming over to a country that they in fact do not live in permanently, then they should have made preparations before they arrived.  I am not saying that we should not be welcoming, but I am also saying that we should not be a charity case.

If a migrant is over here, working and earning their taxes, then they should be allowed to free health care, because they are putting back into the pot.  For those that have come over here and, are not working, then they cannot just expect the people to provide for them and, if they cannot provide for themselves in times of poverty, then they should not come at all.

If they want to come for a holiday, or they want to come to work, or even if they have come over and have money to provide without working, then that is all very well and good, but if you cannot provide for yourself in your own country, don’t come over to England and, think that we will provide for you, this is not the Charity of England.

This does not make me a racial bigot, or the fact that you come from another country, it has nothing to do with that.   What it has to do with is the fact that England is a very small place in contrast to other places in the world, we are just a very small island and, although it is extremely satisfying to think people want to come to England to live, because it’s a nice place to live, or at least it was, now it is becoming invaded with people that we cannot help.  We do not have the room and, we do not have the money, it is as straightforward as that.

NHS and Global Technology

This will not make any difference to the way the NHS run their departments, or how doctors and nurses function in their responsibilities. 

In fact it will make them twice as inadequate since they will feel more pressurised to do well in their performance and, to increase their level of standards, so that they can be at the top of the league tables.

If a consultant is pressured into doing better, he will obviously feel the strain and, will become exhausted and frustrated, which means that the job that he should be doing well, will in fact not be done well at all, but will be rushed.  

Coercing someone to do better is not the solution we are looking for, making their life easier is what we are looking for, making sure they are working in a happy environment and, they are happy in their job, because if we are not happy in our job, we are simply there for the money and, not for the good of the patients, who put their trust in the hands of their consultants.

We do not have enough doctors and nurses on call and, the very few that are on call, are rushed off their feet, which means that not all patients get the care that they need and, are left.

Surgery is rushed because there are not enough doctors to go round, in fact there is not enough of anything to go round.

These people are regarded as God’s and, that they can do anything and, provide anything, the thing that the government miss is that they are not God’s, they are human beings with thoughts and feelings that do the best they can with what provisions they have got.

If there is not enough staff to do that job, then things will eventually come to a halt.  

It only takes one cog on that wheel to break in the machine and, the whole machine shuts down.
