As SNP support soars politicising the NHS ONLY on BBC ‘Scotland’

As we head toward General Election 2019 with SNP support averaging a floor-wiping 46%, BBC Scotland, yesterday and today, headline and dramatise a single unsubstantiated case from 2017, based on the heartless exploitation of heart-broken parents by the Scottish opposition parties. Only the Scottish Conservatives have called for a resignation. BBC Scotland’s editorial team haveContinue reading “As SNP support soars politicising the NHS ONLY on BBC ‘Scotland’”

Lib Dem draws our attention to glowing report on Children in Hospital in Scotland

I’m unusually grateful to Alex Cole-Hamilton for drawing my attention to the above report. He managed to find something slightly negative about information on ward procedures to ask the Health Secretary about yesterday. What, lack of information? Heads must roll! Contact Lisa at the BBC. Anyhow, I thought I’d have a look at the fullContinue reading “Lib Dem draws our attention to glowing report on Children in Hospital in Scotland”

BBC Scotland’s proxy war against the SNP is now in election mode and the Health Secretary is first in line

As the Guardian breaks ranks with the other media, prompted by my correction, to reveal that NHS England A&E is a staggering 20% less effective than NHS Scotland with only 74.5% as opposed to 89.2% seen in 4 hours, BBC Scotland ignore the facts and go for two single cases of alleged failure. The childContinue reading “BBC Scotland’s proxy war against the SNP is now in election mode and the Health Secretary is first in line”

Reporting Scotland’s bloodlust for dead patients continues unsated for nearly a year and it’s not good for you

Today, we heard: Allegations emerged that a child died as a result of contamination at a Glasgow hospital.’ Now, it’s one case from 2017 based only on hearsay and there’s a later admission that a bacterial infection was [only] ‘a significant factor’ and thus the death was NOT as a result of the contamination. OfContinue reading “Reporting Scotland’s bloodlust for dead patients continues unsated for nearly a year and it’s not good for you”

‘Worst-ever’ NHS England A&E performance is nearly 20% worse than NHS Scotland

As Reporting Scotland headline an alleged child death from a hospital infection, everywhere else in the BBC is headlining the worst ever A&E performances and even understating the crisis. In NHS Scotland A&E departments, in October 2019, 89.3% were seen within 4 hours. https://www.isdscotland.org/Health-Topics/Emergency-Care/Publications/2019-11-05/Summary/index.asp In NHS England Type 1 A&E departments, only 74.5% were seenContinue reading “‘Worst-ever’ NHS England A&E performance is nearly 20% worse than NHS Scotland”

Scotland’s unemployment rate same or better than comparable parts of UK but BBC Scotland won’t tell you that

Reporting Scotland were keen to tell you that unemployment is higher, and employment is lower, in Scotland than for the UK as a whole. Of course, any fool knows there is no point in comparing a country of 5.4 million with one of 65 million which contains within it one of the world’s megacities, massivelyContinue reading “Scotland’s unemployment rate same or better than comparable parts of UK but BBC Scotland won’t tell you that”

How the South Ayrshire Tories will sacrifice our fishing and fish processing industry

I know it’s hard to stop voting Labour but put Ayrshire, Carrick and Cumnock first.’ From the Financial Times on October 30th 2019: [T]he arrangements for Northern Ireland under the Brexit deal — which keeps it in the EU’s customsContinue reading “How the South Ayrshire Tories will sacrifice our fishing and fish processing industry”
