I'm not a fucking moron.
Unlike the fucking has-Bean Prime Mentalist who picked a fight with Adam Boulton.
So, having thoroughly fucked the special relationship between Labour and News International, the Snot-Gobblin' King then proceeded to storm out of a BBC interview as well. Nice going, doc, on those pills, but I think you may need to up the dose just a teensy-weensy bit.
And now the union cuntflaps are starting to flex their muscle as they are the only thing standing between the Labour Party and complete financial oblivion:
More evidence today that the TUC is dictating government policy on public services. Nick Timmins in the FT notes that Andy Burnham’s new guidance to health authorities requires them to treat NHS organisations as the “preferred providers” of care, reversing the Blair/Milburn reforms which opened up health care to private suppliers. By insisting that NHS providers have ‘at least two chances to improve’ before failing services are put out to tender, and that NHS staff should have the opportunity to bid not just once but twice for any new service contracts, Burnham is effectively excluding private providers from the process. It’s no surprise that Unison welcomes the move as a ‘significant policy shift.’
Yep. The unions are starting to shape fin de siècle Labour direction. And while I would love to see a genuine reversion to type on the part of both parties, I can't see the ultra-slippery iDave doing anything as desirable on his watch. So, British politics will be a centrist dance of democratic death between the SocDems and Blue Labour, while Labour harps on from the distant left.
I didn't think things could get worse, but I fear I was wrong.
