This is the Last Laugh Looney Party penultimate investigation. This time it’s the turn of the Department of Health and Social Care. Normally they are the second largest spending department, clocking up a massive figure of £ 171 billion in 2018/19. Thanks to Coronapop in the current year it’s spending has gone into the medical stratosphere, totalling goodness knows what. But we will find out eventually 🤡
Let’s start with some prejudices about the NHS, which I say having worked alongside them and in partnership with them for many years, long before Coronapop was even heard of :-
- First of all they are a LEVIATHAN, a massive organisation.
- A massive administrative management nightmare.
- Potentially great at the front line, if you can get to it.
- Dictated to by endless executive orders from “on high”.
- Dominated from below by Trade Union limitations.
- Tied in administrative red tape.
- Fearful of ambulance chasing no- win no-fee lawyers.
- Regularly reorganised by successive Governments.
It is a miracle they achieve everything they do and that most peoples personal experience of the NHS is very good. That’s down to the front line staff.
But now Coronapop comes along and they are caught with their pants down ! Not enough beds, not enough ventilators, not enough PPE, not enough testing, not enough money. No contingency plan for a pandemic.
Oh! And so far I haven’t even mentioned Social Care, The poor relation of the NHS. The Cinderella service, last in the queue for attention or resources, but home to so many people who draw on NHS services. A rabbit in the headlights of the NHS steam train.
So what do we do with a vehicle designed after the Second World War and still running 70 years later, with essentially the same organisational and funding model. We could go forward with an HS2NHS. An all singing all dancing technologically charged Alexa hospital service. No need for doctors, just a video screen to talk to and robots to operate on serious cases. That gets around the Trade Unions, the paperwork, health service managers and lawyers.
Bodj’s latest broadcast to the Nation :-
“I have decided to abolish the NHS because ever since Coronapop came along it’s costing the country a fortune and from my personal experience on the ventilator it’s doing my head in. This new health policy will save the country from bankruptcy, although sadly there maybe a few more deaths in the short term. My MinIster of Health, Matt Handcockup, will continue to provide a comprehensive health service with Alexa and his laptop computer.
P.S. I forgot about Social Care, which is what I always do, but I will order another public enquiry, which should make it all go away until I am better.”
FORECAST SAVING. £ 171 Billion plus who knows what?
