In Sutton, it is not uncommon at the Robinhood Lane NHS surgery, for doctors to ‘refer’ a certain type of patient to ‘private’ hospitals in the area to receive ‘private’ treatment at the NHS expense. This diverts legitimate NHS patients ‘away’ from NHS hospitals, Clinics and Outpatients facilities that would usually deal with these medical issues (free at the point of use), if they were not being stripped of resources during the final phases of an NHS privatisation drive – established in law in 2012 by the Tory and LibDem Parties during their time of Coalition government (2010-2015). This process of referring NHS patients to ‘private’ healthcare facilities assists the ‘closing down’ of the NHS, as it gives the false impression that NHS provision is not required across the nation, and that everyone either ‘prefers’ or can ‘afford’ private medical cover (which in many cases has been proven deficient or sub-standard – leaving the NHS to clear-up the subsequent mess). The fact that NHS patients are diverted out of the NHS system in this manner is being ‘packaged’ across the UK as ‘choice’ within the NHS, when in fact it is the exact opposite – NHS patients have ‘NO’ choice if they care about their own health, over than to abandon the NHS due to a lack of NHS resources. Furthermore, evidence suggests that NHS doctors are only referring those NHS patients who are ‘young’ and in ‘full-time’ employment to ‘free’ private care, sentencing those who do not fall into these categories to a slow decline in their health and diminishing of life expectancy.
Jeremy Corbyn has been elected as Labour Party Leader in the wake of the Conservative and Libdems policy of ‘Austerity’, which has been nothing more than an excuse to enrich the middle class at the expense of the working class. The question is ‘why?’ has the Labour Blairite neo-conservative over-lords (who are in the pockets of big business) allowed this to happen? I suspect that a trap has been set by the Blairites to finish off Socialism within the Labour Party once and for all. The thinking is probably something like this; allow a token Socialist to take control of the Labour Party – but in such a manner that does not allow its big business infrastructure to be compromised through Socialistic reform – let him announce a Socialist Agenda, and then watch him lose the next General Election. Once the election is lost, the Blairites can announce to the British people that Socialism is well and truly dead and that the Labour Party must now pursue the more level-headed, middle of the way (i.e. ‘middle class’) direction – in other words ‘Blairite Red Toryism’.
The masses of people who live on housing estates of Torbay are hidden away from the view of the tourists on the seafront, and live in abject poverty. As they have no voice – they appear not to exist. This non-existence is designed to keep a stock of potential workers handy should the need arise – whilst simultaneously preventing them from gaining an education and accessing adequate employment and political power. Although there are obviously more workers in Torbay than the bourgeoisie (i.e. middle class), they appear not to exist because they lack any means to access the bourgeois system.
The Liberal Democrats have blood on their hands through the vicious benefits cuts they supported and condoned, which have led to the death of at least 10,000 Disabled People in the UK, and the terrible impoverishment of millions of others. Of course, as the NHS has been sold off to the American profiteers, UK citizens nolonger have the facilities to ensure their lifelong health and safety.
The Management of the Livermead Cliff Hotel – Torquay Road – Devon (and associated hotels in the area), advertises and supports the far-right political cause of the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP), the policies of which are premised upon racism and discrimination.
It is a remarkable manipulation of State media the likes of which has not been seen since Adolf Hitler’s rise to power in the early 1930’s. The point of this exclusion from the media of working class protest is to allow the middle and upper classes (who have received generous tax-cuts at the expense of deprived benefit recipients) to continue to live in the privileged and opulent lifestyles unencumbered by issues of conscience. With such social devastation it is difficult to envisage how or why the Tories could win the next general election, but in a very real sense, their complete control and manipulation of the media makes it very likely when UK voting patterns are taken into account.
