What to do if Your Child is Being Bullied

UnknownBullying involves recurring acts of physical, emotional, or social behaviour that are intentional, controlling, and hurtful.  Bullying is a learned behaviour, observable as early as 2 years of age.

Bullying is defined by a power imbalance between the bully and its prey.  A power that can be gained from physical size, strength, verbal skill, popularity, or gender.    

A bully’s target feels tortured, helpless and defenceless, and if you believe that your child is being bullied, you should talk to your child and trust that what they are telling you is true, and not brush it under the rug.

Talk over with your child that being bullied is not their fault, and that they don’t have to face it alone.

The parent should gather as much information as possible about the situation, and instruct the child to not respond to his/her attackers, but to be assertive and walk away, or get assistance if required.

parents

Tell your child to report any intimidation straightaway to a trusted adult, and the parent should get in touch with the school, teacher, or counsellor, and always stay calm.  Don’t ever respond to any bullying.

When kids bully each other using the internet, mobile phones, or other cyber technology by sending hateful or venomous text, e-mail, or instant messages, or by posting hateful pictures or messages about others in a chat room, on bulletin boards, on blogs, or on websites, then they should be reported immediately, but don’t ever react to any Cyber bullying, and screen shot and save all correspondence or postings.

If your child is physically attacked, and when we say physically, we mean by force, hitting, or otherwise attacking, then the parent needs to talk to the teachers and the school principal immediately.

The parent should take pictures of any injuries, and they should have their child write down a detailed description of what happened.

The police should be called immediately if there is any physical violation of any type, which includes hitting, kicking, slapping, tripping, and hair-pulling.

Parents should also talk to a solicitor/Lawyer if the child has been physically assaulted by another student.

In a collective, children and older students do tend to bicker, and some just single others out, some just to show off, and others because of the way that they have been brought up in the home.  

We are not born bullies, we become bully’s because of what we see, and what we’re shown, and so that the emphasis is not on them, but on others.  It’s all about possession, and taking charge of something that they can command because they’re unable to control themselves.

It’s our animal instinct that refers to our behaviour and habits, including body language, elimination habits, hostility, play and communication.  Many common behaviours include hunting and grooming, however, it can change greatly among individuals.  Some might appear to interact with others more easily, while others do not seem to do as well.  In a family with many children, the interactions appear to alter depending on which individuals are present, and how limited the territory and the resources are.

Even so, bullying isn’t acceptable behaviour, and dominance over this should be seen in the home of the parents, nevertheless, this is not always a possibility, particularly if all that the bully is experiencing is hostility inside the home.  Another pattern of bullying is through peer pressure that is influenced in a peer group, when observers or individuals encourage others to change their attitudes, values, or behaviours to adapt to a group.

Peers become a significant influence on behaviour during adolescence, and peer pressure has been called a hallmark of adolescent experience.

Peer conformity in young people is most pronounced with regard to trend, taste, appearance, ideology, and values, and is normally affiliated with instalments of adolescent risk taking, such as willful neglect, drug abuse, sexual behaviours, and reckless driving because these actions commonly happen in the company of peers.

Affiliation with friends who engage in risk behaviours has been shown to be a strong predictor of an adolescent’s own behaviour, however, peer pressure can also have positive effects when youths are forced by their peers towards positive behaviour, such as volunteering for a charity, or surpassing in academics.

While socially accepted kids often have the most opportunities, and the most positive experiences, being in the popular gang may also be a risk element for mild to temperate deviant behaviour.

Popular teenagers are the most socialised into their peer groups, and therefore are more vulnerable to peer pressures, such as behaviours normally set aside for this for more outstanding matureness and reasoning.

teens-on-cell-phones

Socially accepted kids are frequently accepted for the sheer fact that they adjust well to the norms of teen culture, with good and bad aspects included, and popular adolescents are more strongly associated with their peer group’s likes such as intoxicants, tobacco and drugs.

Many popular pupils also make lower grades than less socially accepted kids. This is perhaps due to the fact that popular students may spend more time vexing about their social life instead of studying.

We perpetually hear about bullying on a regular basis, and sometimes it becomes so high-risk that you also hear of teenagers taking their own lives because of the brutality that another teenager, or a group of teenagers has put on another person.  

In the playground of adolescence we support bullying as a playground caper, and thus reinforce it, and brush it under the carpet.   However, you can title it what you like, but at the end of the day, it’s still bullying, and a hurdle that we must address.  It’s not a brain-teaser. It’s very real, and we must always question why it happens.

playground-equipment-KinXRxkiq

We are all born with a blank canvas, we are not born with this congenital enthrallment to bully another human being, however, some of us, as we get older search out others to create havoc upon.  So, this must have been learned from somewhere, and it’s essential that once this bullying is brought out into the open by a student, or the parent of that student that it’s nipped in the bud as soon as possible.

blank-canvas-background-picx0ixx

How do we do this, with control, and we need to analyse all aspects of the situation, however, what we can’t do is quash the situation and pretend it’s not happening, when we know that it is.  You can’t conceal bullying because it won’t go away, and whoever it’s happening to can’t fight it off, it’s not as simple as that.

Foremost the student that’s being bullied needs to know that they can approach someone of authority, or their parents without judgement because the student has done nothing amiss, and should not be made to feel that they have.  

It’s one thing the student approaching somebody to confide in, but it’s another thing bringing the bullies forward to acknowledge that they have done something wrong because in their eyes it was all in fun, and they never meant anything by it, when clearly they did, and then the student will go away feeling uplifted that the bully has been chastised for their wrong-doing, but then the student is then bullied once more, but more so because they ratted on the bully or bullies.

With a bully, it’s almost like a line of work, and the prey is the student.  Bullying can also take place in a place of work among adults.  The adult might seem well mannered, but underneath they are really vulgar and ill-mannered, and they will pollute anyone that they can with their gibe like comments. 

the-human-being-328841Nobody has the authorisation to bully another human being because being a human being means that one is worthy of more than that. Everybody deserves to be handled with esteem, and to be stripped of that respect is a let down on the human species.  Given that we should be permitted to air our feelings about other people, but not to the detriment of another persons life, that is taboo.

 

   

JEREMY CLARKSON

Jeremy-ClarksonIt is reported that Jeremy Clarkson has been debarred for allegedly attacking a television producer, and with his catalogue of misdemeanours people are saying it’s time for Clarkson to go.

It’s been reported that Clarkson, and his family business sold golliwogs, and is reportedly really majestic of the fact, and he as well has zero consciousness as to how entirely unsavoury this could be for a great number of people.

However, it appears Jeremy Clarkson has been up to it again, and now he’s allegedly been using the “n” word.

It must be remembered that the BBC fired Carol Thatcher for naming to a tennis player offstage as a “golliwog”. So should Clarkson be sacked as well?

BBC_3

People hold the right to say and think what they like, but also, there a number of people out there that really love “Top Gear”, and watch it religiously because it is actually a really good programme, and it will be missed by many if it was taken off air for good, and for those that don’t watch the programme it won’t be missed at all, and neither would Jeremy Clarkson.

In recent newspaper reports in October 2009, it demonstrates that he ribbed television bosses for being obsessed with having black Muslim lesbians on shows to balance out the number of white heterosexual men, and these remarks followed on from the Strictly Come Dancing issue over Anton Du Beke calling his partner Laila Rouass a “Paki”.

In November 2008, he made a joke about lorry drivers murdering ladies of pleasure during an instalment of Top Gear. Despite numerous ills to the BBC and Ofcom, and a telephone call from an MP for him to lose his job, he gave the usual mock apology on the following weeks show.

elib_5686351-e1358274809522

He has called Minister Gordon Brown a one eyed Scottish idiot, however, only apologised about Mr Brown’s appearance, but he didn’t apologise about calling him a Scottish idiot.

BRITAIN/

In July 2010, he made a comment about a woman in a burka wearing a red G-string while talking about unsafe driving conditions on the show. Later that month, Alastair Campbell disclosed on his web log that, in un-aired remarks, Clarkson had snubbed claims that he wasn’t very sound on gay rights by responding “Oh yes I am. I demand the right not to be bummed. ”

In August 2010, Clarkson was comparing two Ferrari’s and depicted the older one as a simpleton that should be called the 430 Speciale needs, instead of its real name 430 Speciale, which incited recoil from the National Autistic Society.

I don’t really think that Jeremy Clarkson affiliated the two categories, cars against Autistic children, and I also don’t believe that he was having a jab at handicapped children in general, it was all to do with the car, and not putting anyone down.

Clarkson can come across as being a ceremonious jackass at times, and just speaks his mind believing that most people want to hear and like what he is saying, however, that is not always the case. He doesn’t seem to point the finger at anyone specific, unless it’s Gordon Brown, which of course he shouldn’t have done, however, everybody is titled to their beliefs, just not on national television, which Clarkson clearly gets his arse beaten.

In April this year, the BBC was pressured to apologise to the Mexican ambassador after Clarkson stigmatised Mexicans, calling them lazy, feckless and flatulent in an episode of Top Gear. Ofcom received 157 complaints about the remarks on the BBC2 show, which the viewing audience sounded off, and said that they were derogatory, cruel, xenophobic, discriminatory and racist.

Once more, he has his opinions, but should at times really keep his views to himself, or perhaps he should look in the mirror more often and see that he is a balding, ugly middle age man, who really should choose a different dentist for his dental work on his gnashers…

And now this week he had made a vile comment about Asian people.

Jeremy has truly got himself into hot water this time, and some people would say that he was completely bonkers. I grant you he is a bit of a crackpot, and passably a fool because now he’s out of a job, however, he is a good host, and he can talk the hind legs off a donkey.

Should we lay him to rest, along with a very good series of Top Gear, or should we just reprimand him, and let him carry on with the show?

Unfortunately, the recent comment about Asians is in contravention of the Equality Act 2010 and lawyers have threatened to take the matter to Ofcom, and are thinking about taking legal action.

Jeremy Clarkson’s behaviour both on and off the Top Gear camera has seen him fall from one argument into the next, before he was eventually canned by the BBC last week for punching a show producer in a run-in over catering arrangements.

And it appears the former master of ceremonies is nothing if not particular about his backstage prerequisites, and what it takes for producers to keep Prima Donna Clarkson. James May and Richard Hammond gratified.

The Mariahs of middle-age, middle-England evidently demanded over 20 bottles of wine, which included Verve Cliquot. Champagne, Cloudy Bay Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc, alongside his favourite Chateau Leoube rose. They also wanted 24 bottles of Peroni, Bombay Sapphire gin with necessary Gin and Tonic making material, and a fridge or cooler cabinet with at least four shelves for the green room of the called off shows, which were set to take place in Norway from 29th March.

Tables in the room, preferably occupied with green plants, must be overlaid in linen, and there must be a couch big enough to tooshie six people. One of whom is 6ft 3in and likes to lie down. It must also include a Sky TV connection, a DVD player, an iPod dock, and a Playstation 3 with two controllers and a copy of Call of Duty.

Feeding Jeremy Clarkson and his companions should include lunch and evening meals, and hot snacks, e.g. Pies, jacket potatoes, pasta and prawn cocktail, alongside jelly babies, minstrels and a cheese board. Healthy options should include chicken Caesar, Nicosia and Greek salads as well as a fruit bowl. Marmite, honey, jam, peanut butter, HP sauce and balsamic vinegar are also compulsory.

The green room must also be a stone’s throw from a McDonald’s.

This ensemble doesn’t come cheap or uninteresting with their cavernous appetites which are unquestionably obscure. Not forgetting that they move around in exotic places, isn’t it self-explanatory that they want to banquet like bizarre male monarchs, and it must be really stimulating as they maneuver their vehicles through rough terrain.

More unusual particulars on the list include a copy of Scrabble and Pictionary, a coat stand, hair wax, nice rubbish bins, and a can of Dove deodorant for men.

All three presenters have their eclectic savour and they certainly know what they want.

Jeremy is really into his rose, and very finical about getting precisely the right type of wine. He also likes to be driven around in a Range Rover during these events.

When I read through all of these things that went on behind the scenes, I abruptly got a vision of Jeremy Clarkson, and thought of Henry the VIII, whilst I began to chuckle behind my desk. I’m not sure which one is more beguiling or more unpalatable, however, Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond are decidedly a little off-the-wall.

Osborne’s Brother Debarred For Two Year Liaison With Vulnerable Woman

UnknownGeorge Osborne’s brother who is a shrink is battling to save his career after it was revealed that he has been suspended as a doctor following grave allegations of wrongful conduct.

Adam Osborne, 38, who has a private practice in Central London, last week had his licence suspended by the General Medical Council after being accused of having a two year sexual affair with an extremely vulnerable woman patient who has psychiatric issues, and is married and has two children.

This news comes five years after he was then debarred by the GMC for dishonest and misleading behaviour in prescribing drugs to his cocaine addicted prostitute lover.

The latest setback signifies that he can’t practice in any capacity as a doctor until an investigation into the fresh allegations has been resolved.

This temporary removal will prove extremely awkward for the Chancellor, as it gets close to Wednesday’s all-important Budget, the final one before May’s General Election.

If the investigation results in a Fitness To Practice hearing, which is held in public, Dr Osborne could face further sensitive personal information being revealed, and if the allegations are upheld, he could be struck off.

Nevertheless, his interim suspension did not constitute an indication of a guilty conscience. However, in the aftermath of the hearing, Dr Osborne’s personal website has been taken down. Yet, his Linkedin page states that he has a special interest in adult attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, personality disorders, depression and anxiety.

Dr Osborne presently runs Devonport Psychiatry, which is based in Marylebone. Central London, but is officially registered to his home address in Shepherd’s Bush, West London, which he shares with his wife Rahala Noor, a plastic surgeon.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT FIBROMYALGIA

fibromyalgia

My pain is not your pain. It’s induced by inflammation, and taking your arthritis medication won’t help me.  I can’t work my pain out or shake it off.  It’s not even a pain that stays put, because today it’s in my shoulder, but tomorrow it may be in my foot or even gone.  My pain is thought to be caused by improper signals sent to the brain, it’s not properly understood, however, it’s real.

I get exhausted, but I am not just tired, I’m frequently in a grave state of exhaustion.  I may want to take part in physical activities, but I can’t.  Please don’t take this personally, just because you saw me at the shopping centre yesterday, doesn’t mean that I can assist you with yard work today, and it isn’t because I don’t want to, it’s because I’m paying the price for straining my muscles beyond their capacity.

I am forgetful, and for those who have it, it’s called Fibro-fog.  I may not recall your name, but I do remember you.  I may not remember what I promised to do for you, even though you told me just seconds ago.  My problem has nothing to do with my age, and I do not have a selective memory.  On some days, I just don’t have any short-term memory at all.

post_d01f53fc59c74d9a9f68ac1a5faf38cf_635124244907180000

I’m clumsy, and if I step on your toes or run into you five times in a crowd, I’m not intentionally aiming at you, I do not have the muscle control for that.  If you are behind me on the stairs, just please be patient, these days, I take life and stairwells one step at a time.

I have sensitivities that I just can’t stand.  It could be any number of things from bright sunlight, loud or high-pitched noises, or odours.  FMS has been called the aggravating everything disorder, so don’t make me open the curtains or listen to your child screeching, I really can’t stand it.

I can’t stand the heat either, or humidity.  If I’m a man, I sweat profusely, and if I’m a lady, I perspire, both are every bit as embarrassing, so please don’t feel compelled to point this shortcoming out to me, I already know.  And don’t be surprised if I shiver uncontrollably when it’s cold, I don’t tolerate the cold either.  My internal thermostat is busted, and no one knows how to repair it.

Yes, I get depressed, and there are days when I would rather stay in bed, or in the house or die.  Severe, persistent pain can induce depression, and your sincere care and understanding can pull be back from the threshold of hell, however, your sneering comments can tilt me over the edge.  My body does not handle stress very well, that doesn’t mean that I’m slothful, however, everyday stresses make my symptoms worse, and can incapacitate me altogether.

anxiety_depression_may_raise_stroke_risk

I may be fat or I may be skinny, either way, it’s not by choice.  My body is not your body, and my appestat is broken, and no one can tell me how to mend it.

On good days, if you see me smiling and functioning normally, don’t presume that I’m well.  I have continuing pain and fatigue, an illness with no cure.  I can have my good days or weeks or even months, but it’s the good days that are what keeps me going.

People who suffer from FMS are all unique, and are not all alike.  That means I may not have all of the problems listed above, but I do have pain above and below the waist, and on both sides of my body which has lasted for an extremely long time.  I may have migraines or hip pain or shoulder pain or knee pain, however, I don’t have exactly the same pain as everybody else.

This is based on communications with people throughout the world, males and females, who suffer with Fibromyalgia.  It doesn’t represent any one of the over 10,000,000 people with FMS, however, it can help the healthy person realise how devastating this illness can be.  Please don’t take these people and their pain lightly.  You wouldn’t want to spend even a day in their shoes, or their bodies…

More Self-Help And Less State Aid

It is said that Labour should tax the fringe benefits of pensioners, making a living wage compulsory for adults across the nation by 2018, and ensures the payment of child benefit for a second child is conditional on recipients going to parenting classes.

It appears that an equilibrated package has been contrived to get rid of badly targeted expenditure in the welfare budget, and now they want to nurture a firmer culture of self-help.

It warns that if monumental cuts were enforced, that it would place the burden of austerity measures on the shoulders of those struggling to get by, and as well levy searching doubts about the kind of society Britain is becoming, or has already become.

The British people have so far been outstandingly tolerant in the face of the austerity programme, which without quantitative easing would have immersed us even deeper into recession, however, people’s patience is now running out.

With 60 percent of cutbacks still to come, and public services starting to deteriorate quickly, with food banks springing up throughout the country, the general election really is the time to say enough is enough.

David Blunkett is now proposing that the winter fuel allowance, the Christmas bonus and the free television licence for pensioners should all be taxed.  He is also calling for pensioners who carry on working, for them to pay mandatory national insurance, and pay for prescriptions that are not for long-term conditions.

SpeakOutDavidBlunkett

He also proposes that anyone that applies for child benefit for a second child would be required to attend appropriate classes in parenting, money management and postnatal learning.

chb-claim

Not to be too ignorant here, but why on earth would a mother of a second child possibly require classes in parenting, and postnatal learning?  I realise that there are some parents out there that don’t have appropriate parenting, but children don’t come with a manual, and most parenting is taken from trial and error.

It’s just an excuse to stop people’s money because the government knows that making claimants go to parenting classes can be really humiliating, nearly as bad as being back in kindergarten, and not only that, women have been giving birth to babies for hundreds of thousands of years, and have still handled pregnancy without postnatal learning.

The government’s aspiration is to shape an economic system in which people are willing to put in the hours of work, and fund themselves, and bring up a family without having to rely on benefits to compensate their rent.  Hence, we are promptly becoming a possession of the state, and this is an indicator of our future, and I assure you, it’s not going to be a good one.

People Out Of Work Are Being Penalised With Hunger

There has been a blistering assault on the government for using hunger as a penalty for people claiming unemployment benefit, using benefit sanctions to berate claimants who miss meetings or who neglect to look for employment is amounting to a policy of calculated destitution.

The Government is presiding over a benefits system that places a harsher punishment on people who have the misfortune to be unemployed, than those found guilty of committing a crime.

The maximum punishment for missed meetings or not looking for a job, or not having enough Universal Job matches is the removal of living expenses and housing benefit for three years, in which benefit claimants will lose £11,000, but with the greatest fine levied by the criminal justice system, it’s only £5,000.

jobmatch_2433649k

The use of hunger as a punishment is just unacceptable, and it’s extraordinary that our government would choose to penalise lateness to appointments or sub-optimal job seeking in such a way because there is much more fairness in the Criminal Justice System, when it fines or incarcerates criminals, at last they ensure that they meet a person’s basic needs because when a person who perpetrates an offence, ends up behind bars, is given food, clothes and water, they are the basic requirements of mankind, in whichever form it comes.

Sanctions have left some people unable to purchase food for more than a week, and it has led to shoplifting, isolation and physical and mental health troubles.  The human cost of the sanctions system is exceedingly high, with some people even taking their own lives.

shoplift8_27

Sanctions have a ravaging effect on a claimant’s ability to look for work because those that have got a sanction dramatically shrink to enter their attention on the immediate problem of where they’re going to get their next meal, and not about looking for employment.

The Department for Work and Pensions declared that there were only a really small percentage of benefit claimants who were being sanctioned.   Nevertheless, there are large numbers who are sanctioned, and go on to face long term blocks on their benefits, and last year more than 800,000 claimants were sanctioned for a month or longer.

department_for_work_and_pensions_1

Benefits are frequently withheld on bogus grounds, and food bank charities like the Trussell Trust support people who have their benefits docked for failing to go to a course, or they had really turned up to, and others had been sanctioned for going to a funeral, rather than going to a routine Jobcentre meeting.  A Jobcentre meeting can be set up for another day, however, a funeral can’t be rearranged, and there needs to be a little compassion because without empathy it becomes a really savage world that we appear to now be living in.

24

It is far more probable to get someone back to work if they have a good relationship with the Jobcentre.  Once a claimant gets to the point where they believe that they can get work, that they want to work at, then the job is almost done.  They have to be given a feeling of self-worth because some of these people have been out of work for so long that they start to believe they are not employable, if they feel they are not worthy of a job, then they will believe it, and their enthusiasm to work will evaporate.  The Jobcentre needs to construct a claimant’s confidence and determination to work. The threat of a sanction is really going to block that happening, and can be really counterproductive.

job-centre-landing-page.ashx

There are some people who have been sanctioned again and again, and there doesn’t seem to be a process to examine what is going on.

The Jobcentre needs to find out if that person is really working, so consequently they don’t really care if they get sanctioned.  Perhaps that person might have a mental health condition, or that they are living a really disorderly life, and if they are being sanctioned repeatedly, then understandably something is wrong, and it needs to be looked into straightaway.  There could be mitigating circumstances that are beyond the claimant’s control because we all have different things going on in our lives, particularly when we have children to take care of.

We are not robots, and we do not function on automation, and people cannot be available at the drop of a hat because some have to obtain childcare, and not only find it, but salary it as well.  Some people will not even profit from working, and that is the sort of financial impediment people find everyday because going to work should be an asset above and across the scale.

Male robot thinking about something.

Younger claimants are put into really humble jobs with really low pay.  On a minimum wage, a person of 21 years and over is, probably, before Tax and National Insurance contributions are even taken out, they will likely get £227.50 a week, after Tax and National Insurance, it will be a lot less.

By the time they have paid out for rent, sewage, water, gas, electric, and extra costs such as bedroom tax, they are left with barely anything for food.  And it appears that there is not enough money to even buy luxuries, which a person should have. Taking into account, they have been working their backside off all week just to make ends meet.

The minimum wage for a person of 16 to 17 years old will be £3.79 an hour.  That’s a £132.65 a week, less tax and National Insurance.  Not much is it?  And Apprentices get even less than that.  Admittedly, most of these teenagers will still be living at home, but there is a majority of teenagers in this age bracket that don’t have that luxury for some reason or another, and most live alone in affordable housing given to them by their local council or housing association.

I’ll grant you that £132.65 is more than they would get on benefit, but of course on benefit they would not have to worry about paying their rent or council tax.  And of course, there are other bills that have to be paid for, and of course food.

In another incident Esther McVey, the Employment Minister, was given a picture of David Clapson, the man was found dead in his flat from diabetic ketoacidosis, two weeks after his benefits were suspended.

Unknown

A diabetic can’t wait two weeks, which is the amount of time David Clapson, who had been sanctioned had to wait to receive a hardship payment.

When David Clapson’s body was found in July 2013 by his sister, his electricity had been cut off, meaning the fridge where he stored his insulin was no longer operative.

No one should die like that in this country, alone, hungry and penniless.  The government, and the Jobcentre should know that sanctioning people with diabetes is life-threatening, and the system is processing everybody as a statistic, and everyone is just a number.

Esther McVey declined to comment on single instances, but stated that none of the reviews had established a connection between benefit sanctioning, and the death of a claimant.  That’s a cover up, and it disparages everything our society stands for, because it’s as clear as day, that if a claimant that is a type 1 diabetic is sanctioned, and has no money, and can’t pay for their electric because the Jobcentre has stopped their money, then of course, their insulin will have spoiled, which signifies that the claimant cannot take their insulin, and will finally go into a comatose state and die.

Esther McVey is allegedly off her trolley, and has no clarity into what goes on in the world around her, and I’m certain that if it were one of her family members that was in the same position, there would be no sanctioning for them, or would there?

Esther was in the opinion that this incident had been stirred up, and that all procedures had been pursued correctly, well clearly not in this case, otherwise David Clapson would still be very much alive.

UKIP General Secretary Calls For NHS To Be Privatized And Likens It To Nazi Germany

Unknown

Nigel Farage’s right hand man has stigmatized the NHS the greatest consumption of money in the United Kingdom, and compared the health service to Nazi Germany.

In a series of astounding comments, the UKIP general secretary Matthew Richardson condemned the NHS and called for it to be privatized.

His remarks, that were made for an American audience, will be an immense embarrassment to the leader Nigel Farage, who is now fronting calls to axe Matthew Richardson.

City Barrister, Matthew Richardson, 34, was employed by UKIP to keep unsound poppycock out of the media, however, he explosively likened the NHS, that has been treasured by millions, and was Britain’s greatest post war accomplishment, to Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Germany.

Matthew Richardson talked at two events for right-wing activists in Washington, where he set up fierce onslaughts on the service, blaming much of it on the countries debts.

A number that he couldn’t possibly envisage when he was younger, was now the amount of money that is owed by this nation, but at the heart of this, the Reichstag bunker of socialism, is the National Health Service.

That is evidently why socialized health care is so dangerous, because it’s a ratchet, and once in place, it’s extremely hard to get free from it, and as well. Matthew Richardson launched a bitter attack on taxpayer-funded cosmetic surgery.

Breast augmentation, hymen repair for those who want to be born again virgins, is compensated by the National Health Service, he narrated to an audience of young Americans.

breastaugmentation_1

If you have low self-esteem you get new breasts, however, if you’re dying of breast cancer you can’t get the treatment you require to stay alive.

Socialists believe that if someone wants to reassign their gender, the state should pick up the tab, they think that’s how the world works, so if you have a passion for she males, come to the United Kingdom, if you love freedom, remain here.

Appears a little cruel, nevertheless, he is extremely right.  The NHS has become exceedingly tawdry over the years, and oblivious of what the NHS was put there for in the first place.

The Labour Government elected in 1945, and made manifesto allegiances to carry out the recommendations of the Beverage Report of 1942.  The report’s recommendation was to make comprehensive health and rehabilitation services for prevention and remedies of disease, and was enforced across the United Kingdom on 5 July 1948.

The services were initially funded through universal taxation and National Insurance as part of the entry of a broader Welfare State.  They were initially exempt at the point of use, although some prescription charges were shortly ushered into the response to economic troubles.

Florence Nightingale is a historic English social reformer and statistician, and the founding father of innovative nursing.  She came to prominence while attending as a manager of nurses educated by her during the Crimean War, where she organized the caring for injured soldiers.

Unknown

She gave nursing an extremely favourable reputation, and became an icon of Victorian culture, particularly in the character of The Lady with the Lamp, making rounds to wounded soldiers at night.

florence2

Her societal reforms include amending health care in all parts of British society, improving health care and recommending better hunger relief in India, serving to abolish laws governing prostitution that was over harsh to women, and extending the acceptable contours of female participation in the work force.

Florence would be rolling around in her grave if she could see the mess our NHS was in, particularly now all dominance has been handed over to our government, so that they can break it up, and dish it out to whoever they like.

Florence would be leaping up and down with the wrath on her admonishing face because all her good work would have been for nothing.  Once upon a time the NHS would have been a sympathizing and caring organization of nurses and doctors that were there only for the health of their patients, merely because we are all human beings and deserve to be cared for as such, with compassion and care.

The government doesn’t really need to condone themselves for breaking the NHS up, but they will all the same, and they will strike while the iron is hot because now that they are coming up to a general election, they have nothing to lose, and then UKIP will take over, then the real lights will combust.

As we propel closer to the next general election, David Cameron will flounder about attempting to nail an opportunity where he can to demolish our nation, and it’s not by accident that he does this, it’s by intent, and like-minded campaigners in line for Prime Minister will do the same, only more so because they have no compassion for the likes of us.

Emotive compatibility by Matthew Richardson will incense hardworking doctors and nurses, they save lives every day, however, it appears that this UKIP character is seriously likening us to one of the world’s mass murderers.

According to Matthew Richardson, this Government consumes money like it’s gone out of style, and that the NHS was a monumental drain on resources.

His remarks will pile on the pressure for UKIP, and its projects for the health service, despite its claims that it is opposed to privatization, however, they all assure you that they will do something to better our country, only once they get in, they do precisely the opposite.

They are one large organization that group unitedly and work arduously, yet unemotionally expose themselves soon enough, demonstrating that they are simply here to accumulate money, and not to pass it around, as they spread carnage among those less fortunate.

Nigel Farage needs to dismiss Matthew Richardson, or at least come clean and acknowledge that UKIP backs a NHS sell off.

Either Nigel Farage backs this, or Matthew Richardson can’t stay in his office, because Mr Farage can’t simultaneously oppose these remarks, and also claim that his party stands for the NHS free at the point of use.

Allegedly this is UKIP’s agenda on the NHS, because they claim to support the service that almost all people in the United Kingdom hold dear, however, they want to disassemble its foundations.

UKIP can no longer endeavour to dupe the people.  They are a party of Tory people, with Tory money, and they want to unfold the most defective Tory policies, which would have the most awful effects on working people.

Labour faces a battle to stop disenchanted voters switching their support to UKIP.

They are unsuitable candidates to run for government, and they’re unfavourable in some people who will definitely not vote for them, and there is a worry that they won’t deliver what they have said in their manifesto.  They are really good entertainment, but further than this, they are not extremely good at competitive games, so, all they can do is show off to the public, however, to really deliver it if they gain in the next election, is exceedingly debatable.

If they win, and get into power, and they do sell off the NHS, which will capture the imagination of many investors and companies because the principle of Mergers and Acquisitions is that the parts are greater than the whole.

Matthew Richardson’s comments on the NHS are now a major embarrassment to Nigel Farage, who was himself forced to deny he backed privatizing the NHS, after comments he made in 2012 were made public.  As well, Nigel Farage was captured on camera telling his supporters that the state funded NHS should move forward towards an insurance based system run by private companies like in the United States.

Shadow health secretary Andy Burnham takes a firm stand that forced privatization is being forced through like an amphetamine that could be fatal, however, their demand for control is like an addiction with a driven engagement towards its stimuli with extremely adverse consequences.

The trouble is, that negative effect that the government has on us, means that in the end it’s the individuals who experience the greatest levels of it, and that negative effect it has is unidirectional, unlike a guided missile.

Mr Burnham warns that contracts are being signed, which will be tied down to the following government.

Mr David Cameron, our Prime Minister was not up front about his designs to break up the NHS service during the 2010 crusade, leaving voters with no say.

Pressured NHS privatization is now entering a new dominion, and once in. It will be much more difficult to turn around.  Contracts are being signed that will run for five years of the next parliament, and beyond.  UKIP must actually believe they’re something that they’re not, and that their fraternity of predators will swindle the public out of something that has been given to us since 1948.

For the first time in 1948, hospitals, doctors, nurses, pharmacists, opticians and dentists were brought together under one umbrella organization to supply help that were free for everyone.

The fundamental rules were well-defined, that the health service would be available to all, and financed solely from taxation, which implied that people would pay into it according to their means.

Charges of one shilling were introduced in 1952 for prescriptions of one shilling (5 pence), and a flat rate of £1 for ordinary dental treatment, which was also brought in.  Prescription charges were abolished in 1965, and remained free until 1968, when the charges were reintroduced.  Today 2015, prescription charges are now £8.05

If the NHS was abolished and superseded by an insurance-based scheme, run by private companies like in the US, it would be catered for by many organizations, with healthcare facilities mostly owned and controlled by private sector business.

Healthcare would require extended regulations, and to a really high level and professional degree.  There would as well have to be a very high degree of administration that would be required, and the qualifications of such would have to be really high.   Although modifications have been made over the years in the NHS system, and it doesn’t appear to have bettered itself, so I actually don’t see how having private healthcare would make any difference, aside from those whose pockets the money is going into, because at the end of the day, it’s all about profit, and not the well-being of the patient.

If there’s not going to be any improvement, it will not seat heavy upon our government because by then the NHS will have been broken up and sold off to the most eminent bidder.  So, if the system does not work, and it deteriorates, there will be no attachment to our government, but to the private companies that bought into it, consequently, our government is off the hook.

Florence Nightingale’s voice was protected for posterity in a phonograph recording from 1890, which is preserved in the British Library Sound Archive.  Florence Nightingale said, “When I am no longer even a memory, just a name, I hope my voice may perpetuate the great work of my life. ”

Our government clearly did not understand what Florence was speaking about, and how much hard work she put into making patient care so significant, and how important it is to display compassion, and to lift a person’s spirit while they’re in hospital.  Instead, they would sooner downgrade the system, rather than upgrade it.  Private healthcare will not upgrade, it will not amend it, immaterial of whether it’s private or not, and you can whitewash it all you want because the system is so tainted now that no enhancement to it will make a difference, unless we realize why it was set up in the first place.

Go back to bare basics, go back to 1962 and earlier, and our government might realize that taking matrons out of the equation, and cutting nursing staff, and doctors because it was cheaper to bring in doctors from abroad.   Then our hospital system would be more adept.  Cutbacks are not the solution because we are dealing with human lives. That clearly matters no more to our government, all that matters is what they can gain from a human life.

There is a Professional Code of Conduct where professional organizations have their own codes of conduct laying out criteria’s of ethical behaviour owed by members of each profession.

Respecting a patient’s decision about their care, treatment and support are not happening any longer with the controversial Liverpool Care Pathway, where families are being kept in the dark about the fact that their loved ones had been put on the Pathway, and disclosed that hospitals had been paid millions to reach targets for the number of patients dying on it.

The Liverpool Care Pathway, was originally planned to ensure dignified and pain-free dying, which was trashed last year after a scathing inquiry established that it had meant that the handling of these patients was without thought, hurried and ignorant for the treatment of the most vulnerable patients, and in some instances patients were refused water as they perished.

Under the Pathway, doctors and nurses determined when a patient was about to die.  Normally, a syringe driver would pump them with sedatives, while tubes giving food and water were detached, then death would follow, typically within 36 hours.

An inquiry was called for. After leading medical figures condemned the system as a self-fulfilling prophecy, and the thousands of families of patients who had died sounded off.

New prescripts for the care of patients viewed to be approaching the end of their lives will prohibit hospitals from determining that somebody is dying, and then hurrying their death up by sedating them and taking away tubes, and simply just giving them food and water, and some weren’t even getting that.

And it’s been going on for some time.  When my uncle was in hospital in 2004 dying of cancer, it was decided that because he was not going to recover, that they would take away his insulin because that way his organs would slowly shut down, and it would be a quicker death.  At the time we really didn’t have any thoughts about Pathway, however, now that we do, clearly it was more cost efficient to take him off the insulin because he was dying, and it would be a waste of resources, so the faster the better for them.

There is nothing more bowel twisting than seeing family or a close friend that’s dying in front of you, so everyone should spare a minute to think about our National Health Service, which has been part of the formation of our society, it’s part of our culture, that people are envious of all over the world.

So, now it’s a free for all for any enterprise that wants to purchase a slice of the NHS, and the general public has to endure this sort of wish-wash that is going on, and the prognosis is really bleak.

Concern Grows Over Quality Of NHS Treatment

The government endeavour to make us think that it will be better, however, it surely won’t be without its problems, and that’s a big concern, and it narks the hell out of me.

Our government might look as if they have toughened up, but they have toughened up on the incorrect issues, and that one issue is unquestionably not our NHS.  Money should be exhausted in the one thing that we used to be able to count on, so what lunatic decided that it would be more economical to trade our beloved NHS off to the highest bidder?

Sometimes it’s better the devil you do know, than the devil you don’t, and we should retain what has been so iconic in our history, and that is the National Health Service because people know that they can rely on it, and it’s been trusted for a really long time.
