The Tory party surely can’t reduce funding to the NHS any more, let alone by up to 20%.  They have over the past 12 years, taken more and more funding out of the NHS, hence there are 40k nursing and 10 doctor vacancies. With terms and conditions so bad staff are leaving the profession early.  
This style of management has many negative knock on effects, such as a reliance on agency staff and Locums (who often cost twice the hourly rate of NHS staff, this then eats considerably into the finances of NHS Trusts, meaning that they then have to cut services elsewhere.

Doubt that the doctors and nurses get paid twice as much ! So can someone explain where the extra cash goes ? 

Got an idea that a lot may find its way to the coffers of the CEO of the agency companies.
I know that to be true as my cousin helped out in tenby hospital and she was getting silly money,too many chiefs and not enough indians,)not racist)

Yep. Nurses who work in other hospitals now and again can earn a fortune.

I'm generally trying to avoid it as much as someone interested in politics can, but I would say this leadership campaign is generating massive publicity for the Conservative Party with the media coverage of it. Of course it should be transparent but it's like seeing several election campaigns from the same party with no real challenges or differing points of view. Not really fair, in my eyes and this is going to go on for another two months. Also, I'd point out that if it were non-Conservatives simultaneously pledging the lowest tax ever along with huge investment into public services they'd be ripped to shreds for being delusional, having no grasp of economics and making false promises. How do these people get away with it? For those that accuse the BBC of being left-leaning, Tory politicians are given a very easy time by their political journalists.

Yes Dr. M - clearly the unwashed like you & I don't get it because the tax cuts and huge spending promises can be paid for by all the savings made by various departments many of which are currently being run by the very same ministers making those promises.

So Boris was allowed to stay as Prime Minister by the Tory party and he repays them by not attending a cobra meeting to plan for the unprecedented high temperatures the UK are facing.
Instead, he chose to go to chequers to plan his leaving party, this weekend was supposed to be his wedding party at chequers but he was persuaded that it wouldn’t be seen favourably by the general public if it took place.
This just shows the levels of seriousness he takes the role of PM.  He was more than happy to stand in front of us every night during the first lockdown and tell us what we needed to do (as if he was some kind of martyr) and he was the first western leader to visit President Zylenzki, when again he believed that it would score him some brownie points, deflect the gaze away from Partygate, and buy him a bit more time as PM.
Yet as soon as he’s required to attend a meeting that is of importance but not so glamorous or high profile, he’s nowhere to be seen and sees that arranging his leaving party is of more importance.
The electorate has to take a lot of the blame for electing him as a prime minister with such a big margin.  This has given him cart Blanche to degrade the office of PM, to allow standards in government to reach the gutter and to destroy all confidence in politics.

Having a PM where their motivation is not all self-centred, as has been the case most recently, would be a step forward.

Rory Stewart would’ve been ideal. However, that ship sailed…

I like him too, like you said though, it’s a big shame that he’s no longer an MP.
He’s another like Andy Burnham - they run for the top position, lose out and feel that politics is no longer for them.

Wouldn’t rule out a Burnham comeback. After all, he’s still in the mix albeit from Manchester Mayor (iirc). Stewart, I’m not sure what he’s doing.

Sadly his attitude now percolates other areas of the Government. 

Last week, first Patel, and then Raab, refused to appear before a parliamentary committee which scrutinises the work of the government. Their excuse is that there have been 'recent changes in government'. Boris said that he'd stay on so that government business would continue whilst a new PM is elected. HE'S LIED AGAIN.

He needs to leave today !

Today Boris says that the next PM must ensure that Brexit is completed ! The next PM must also continue with the 'levelling up' agenda to protect Boris' legacy. 

Has Boris even started his leveling up agenda ? 


The last attempted, but pathetic hurrah of a failed PM.

Exactly that, speaking as a labour voter and a remain vote, the only logical choice in the last general election was to vote Tory to get Brexit across the line as the 51% majority wanted that.

That just it, he has demeanoured the office of PM, his lack of any kind of honour or integrity for government has now started to filter through to his ministers and very close allies, who understandably believe that if he doesn’t stick to convention and does what he wants to do, then why shouldn’t they.

The last election was a second referendum for brexit. People voted for that not him. 
Was at a very enjoyable BBQ for about 30 with a French family and friends, many with a great rugby background.

A plumber there expressed the view that those who voted for Brexit were either ignorant, racist, too young or other things in a similar vein.

Before the ether sends emergency messages to GPR that he needs to respond, at other gatherings here, some have expressed the view that if France was given a referendum, they’d vote for Frexit because of their rebellious streak.

For me, the last election had nothing to do with Brexit. Also, if the Tories are replacing him because he’s fulfilled his usefulness (won them the last election etc and been rubbish at governing and fulfilling promises so that he is now a threat to their seats in Westminster). 

People did vote for him, someone different, who could do stand up if pushed. Now they’ve tried that option and realised how stupid they were, they’ll move on. 

He would be fine on Not the Nine O’Clock News, however, the tub of lard that represented Roy Hattersley’s nth non appearance on the show is probably due to be associated with a more up to date owner.

EO the ether has duly contacted me and I suggest when you see le plombier next time you advise him the following - when describing myself ignorant is certainly a possibility despite my professional qualifications; racist I am certainly not - I am married to an English lady for goodness sake; whilst being described as too young sounds good it is hardly pertinent in my case as I remember how rugby was played in the 70's by the Scarlets & Wales.

I agree with you I don't think that Brexit can be blamed for us having Boris as PM. In a field sadly lacking anyone with credibility or charisma he appeared the obvious choice for many - quite how they squared his past record of being frugal with truth or indeed reality is one of life's continuing mysteries. As for anti EU feelings I believe there is a growing minority of people throughout the  member states that feel that growing centralisation of power is a dangerous thing and my personal worry is that resentment, in some cases, empowers the far right which is alive and well throughout Europe.

Nicely put, Gareth.

I’d have saved you some time if I’d added the word “mostly” to le plombier’s description and maybe even “to look beyond the misleading campaign messages” after the young.

The far right swing is something to be feared.
