Starve The NHS – Feed Furlough

There are some that agree with the UK lockdown/tiers while others do not. I believe we must all embrace pluralism whichever position we hold as it is merely an opinion.

NB: The following is based on a full acceptance of the UK Governments narrative.

Sadly Boris Johnson while embracing the UK lockdown/tiers constantly fails to achieve his objective. His supporters defend his failures with the mantra:

“He is damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t.”

He is rightly damned as he, his Conservative Government and Governments over recent years have got us into this mess and kept us in it.

Save the NHS should really say Starve the NHS – Feed Furlough as this is exactly what has happened and continues to happen.

Why did the Government not heed the warning given in January 2018 by the Chief Executive of NHS providers?

“the NHS can no longer cope”

The current mess we find ourselves in was created by the very Government that now claims we must save the NHS. This is like crying at the funeral of a dog you kicked to death.

I suggest everyone considers the position the NHS would now be in if the billions that have been feed into furlough and businesses due to the Governments failure to invest in the NHS had instead been invested in the NHS prior. In  Mr Johnson speak it would have provided the UK with a world-beating health service and there would have been no need to save it.

So why does the incompetent UK Government prefer to waste this money in an attempt to paper over the cracks of their own failures? Their very conduct we are now witnessing is the definition of insanity: “Repeat actions that have failed but expect a different result”. Lockdowns and tiers have resulted in more and more cases.

We are in this mess because their policy to starve the NHS and then to introduce a policy of lockdowns and tiers is a disaster on an industrial scale. One delivered us into this mess while the other took us further into the mess.

The Solution

This Government is the worst Government this country has ever seen. The solution will be found by addressing the following points:

  • Why are the Government so obsessed with one health issue and ignore all others?
  • After 10 months why is there no Government policy for a massive investment in the NHS?
  • Why is there no policy to address the shameful shortage of nurses?
  • The true major health crisis is not Covid it is the failure to adequately invest in the NHS.

Johnson is damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t?

If he gets his head out of the sand and he finally does what is required I for one will not be damning him.

I don’t hold my breath. I see a future of starving the NHS and feeding furlough because to do anything different will mean that the Government admits they are wrong.

Anyone for hell freezing over?
