Question Time Commentary

Mea culpa.

Lazy stereotyping on my part.
Wow! I'm genuinely shocked by your response mate. I was expecting you to reply that you have this proof or that proof to back up your claim. I intended to reply to that using my dad as an example.
A couple of years ago, my dad sold his London place and moved to the Canary Islands. My dad speaks fluent German, and has done since he was first posted to Germany back in the early to mid 60s.
However, since he moved to Spain, he has indulged himself in spanish culture, and has taken regular spanish language lessons. My dad lives in an area of Fuerteventura that has a lot of british expats. Most of them being of retirement age, and most of them speak spanish.

Only complete ******* don't bother learning the language of places they visit, even if it's a few phrases to get them by.
 
My daughter couldn't get into nurse training four years ago as places are rationed. She did get in the following year. Docs are seven years in training so no good telling us a thousand will commence training this or next year. :cool:
John Mills on NHS - cites training gap, but ignored reason.

Reason: GMC/RCN/GDC and Gov't cap student numbers supply just enough Docs, Dents etc to meet demand and keep pay high.

This worked OK until number of women rapidly increased, problem being they take maternity leave and may not return or they go part-time.

Women now dominate medical schools, but places haven't increased to reflect fact we need around two females to replace one male.

We've known this for years; however disgracefully, but unsurprisingly, PC msm and politicians won't speak about this elephant in the room.

Ref:
1. The Problem With Female Doctors
2. Sure, Why Not Nationalise GP Surgeries Into The NHS?

.
How to fix NHS?

Remove cap on med/dent school places

Fire all the bureaucrats Brown recruited - he more than doubled them to claim "NHS employees increased by x hundred thousand", then fire 50% of those left. At same tiime Brown closed several Uni Dental Schools eg Edinburgh

Looks & sounds more like 79

I did wonder what happened as he was all over msm in mid 90s, then vanished. Unlike J Ball & D Bellamy not "sacked" for being rational.

True enough... The issue of shortfalls is all about workload (not helped by an ageing population and immigration), or retention (many are lured to sunnier climbs) and the flight of many wealthier types out of the cities making it harder to cover absence.

My point is more money only helps if the planning is sound and does not deny certain uncomfortable and non PC factors, on the altar of some utopia that can never exist.
 
Bringing out the dead for political opportunism... How predictable
@16m 30s Here we go, as I predicted Creggan shooting blamed on Brexit

Now Soubry has said it on BBC QT msm etc will purvey it as fact.

.
Anna Soubry caught lying (again) on BBC Propaganda/Question Time

Foolish Seals clap to publicly virtue signal they're not "racist" - immigration control is not racist, EU free movement may be.

.
Politicians - They lie to you: The EU Army Clegg denied @21m 20m

@50m 55s "Soubry has changed her name to Sour Face"; Nige reading Arrrse - Sour Puss ?

QT has turned into the thinking persons' Jeremy Kyle show!
 
QT has turned into the thinking persons' Jeremy Kyle show!
if only. I did see some of his earlier shows must be over a decade ago now and considered it shite then but the reality is that QT was waning for me then. The intelligentsia then seemed to have been vaccinated with a record needle. It 's in the caste for 30 year old rising somethings but when you analyse the answers they come straight of programming of the time. Nothing Ferkin original, nothing meant to be original and party mantra. I've given up with the Beeb for intelectual stimulus, I get more here.
