I suppose this is the time of year when reviews are written.

Being me I would like to do a review of things that didn’t happen, and should have.

Get out of Iraq

Get out of Afghanistan

Protect BabyP, and all the other kids being abused and being ignored by the Social Services.

Stop terminally ill patients from having a few more months with their families because of NICE and the cost of drugs.

The Government preventing the “Crash”.

Reduce poverty in this country.

Protect the mortgage holders who were sold houses at inflated prices and are now unable to keep up the payments.

Protect the sick, disabled and mentally ill people on benefits, who are going to be forced to “prepare for work”.

Force the people responsible for the “crash” including Bankers, stock traders, and Government Ministers to get the hell out of their jobs (you know who you are).

Stop the knobs at the Health service from vomiting endless, useless edicts that don’t improve treatment, but only increases the “look at me” attitude of the said knobs.

Protect the pensions of millions of people who are going to suffer, or have to keep working while spending £37 BILLION on the banks.

Get out of the EU.

Allow GPs to decide the treatment of their patients, and not the administrators.

Dump the policy to “regulate” bloggers and online journalists.

Kick the arses of the Energy companies and make them reduce the hyper-inflated cost of Gas and Electricity.

Stop protecting the wealthy and the powerful, and actually do something for the majority.

There are probably many more, if you can think of any let me know.

I know that some of the changes will come into effect next year but as usual with our useless Government and “brains” too little too late.

Is it just me or does everything have a price nowadays?

The BBC is running this story about “fit notes” I have made my position clear on NHS Behind the Headlines and it isn’t a pretty sight.

But it’s not just that, it is the interminable “cost” of everything, sickness from work costs £100 Billion, smokers cost £3.7 Billion, and drinkers cost £20 Billion, old age costs-etc.

Have we become so bloody mercenary in this country that we have to spout stats all the time?

Sickness isn’t about money, it’s about people, and so is unemployment, but all we hear is that it costs, so and so. And how the costs could be reduced, not how the people can be helped.

There are platitudes from the Government saying how long term sickness or unemployment can make people “socially excluded” or how they cannot fulfil their “potential”, but what they really mean is-quote from Dim Carol Black “Dame Carol's report highlighted the impact on economic productivity of improving occupational health and reducing the number of people, currently more than 2.7 million of whom, are on incapacity benefits.

That is the crux of all these “new” ideas that seem to vomit from the “brains” of the “experts” MONEY.

This is from a government that pissed away hundreds of billions with nothing to show for it except an economy that is down the drain.

And who does the Government expect to “police” the new “fit notes”, the GPs.

A patients’ relationship with their GP should be one of trust, this “fit note” idea is going to interfere with that relationship, with the patient perhaps not being as truthful as they might about the effects of their illness.

The GPs are going to be compromised, how does a GP know what a patient is capable of? They are there to diagnose, treat and refer, not to do the Governments’ job for them.

As usual the Labour “Government” have come up with another half-arsed, half thought out idea, and to be mercenary, how much will that cost?
