Pension equality for ex-service veterans

That all veterans of the Armed Forced be treated equality in regard to the provision of pension rights, and that the 1975 pension act relating to service pensions be amended to ensure that those who served this country in the 50s, 60s , and early 70s be awarded the same pension rights as those who served after April 1975.

N.H.S filling local needs and Asperations

I heard recently that the local control of GP surgeries is to be taken from the quango style currant bureaucratic control and placed in the hands of the GP's themselves.

Take this a whole stage further and put local people in charge of NHS trust areas, who working with doctors and nurses would manage the trusts for the benefit of local people

 

Remove all the senior bureaucratic management teams and replace them with locally elected clinical and local people committees

You don't need to pay some pen pusher £250,000 to hide behind closed doors and make decisions which are not wanted or needed by local people- remove them NOW, and use that money to employ more nurses , doctors , buy scanners , open up wards , buy better and more food for patients , etc…..

If there was only one of these bureaucrats in each hospital it would be bad enough ,, but behind the doors of every hospital they are legion

 

Give the National Health Service back to the Nation

Are Children Criminals ?

I hate to think how many "laws" i broke as a child, but i was fortunate enough to grow up in a time before lawyers took control of our children's childhood.

We went to the plum orchard , and sitting on the railings in the early Autumn sun we devoured those delicious juicy plums (Theft and Trespass?). As Autumn slid into winter , we went armed with saws and axes , to fell a few branches for our Guy Fawkes bonfire (Carrying an Offensive weapon, and criminal damage ?) , and if that gang from over the hill tried to rob our bonfire or set fire to it , we gave em "what for" (arson, affray, common assault)

did i tell you about the time we found a load of "treasure " yahoo… well actually it turned out to be a store room for our local paper ,in a dilapidated old house (breaking and entering , and theft- again)

And the time we went "camping" , didn't tell our parents ,and the four of us ended up getting chased across the fields by the local Bobby and then a trip home in a Black Maria (not sure what laws we broke — bound to be some). Its sad to say my friends are no longer with us , but at least they will never end up with a criminal record.

When i look back from that time to now — I wonder what sort of society we have become –and i am just so glad i am not a child of today….
