Labour is accused of operating a ‘Denial Machine’….welll yeahhh…it’s called the BBC.
The NHS is safe in Labour hands….just not perhaps your life.
The BBC is going to be paying out some overtime to spin this one:
Professor Sir Brian Jarman, of Imperial College London, worked on a government review which will this week show that 14 hospital trusts have been responsible for up to 13,000 “excess deaths” since 2005.
He accused Labour ministers of presiding over a “denial machine” and ignoring his data on high death rates for a decade.
Sir Brian said: “We felt we were banging against a locked door. They were denying out data even though there was no real reason. At the time there was pressure from Downing Street and pressure from ministers.
“The government was in the position of providing the health service and monitoring it, it was a conflict of interest. Ministers have an electoral interest in getting out good news.”
Still…they’ve got that other ‘machine’ always handy…the ‘Time machine’ that flicks us back to the eighties where we can see the ‘evil witch’ Thatcher plotting and scheming to destroy the country. I’m certain the BBC can prove this is Thatcher’s fault….sure I once saw an episode of ‘PlaySchool’ where children could see the devastating consequences of ‘Thatcherism’….I think it was through the ‘Swastika’ shaped window.
In all seriousness…the BBC doesn’t seem too bothered….denial by omission?…it doesn’t look as if they have even reported the story…there certainly isn’t an ‘obvious’ or prominent report on its website that I could find…remarkable for such an important claim.
‘Is The BBC Biased’ noted the unnecessary deaths report at 10:17 this morning…so no excuse for the BBC not to report it….so no report on the deaths and no report on Labour’s ‘Denial Machine’.
Ahh…no problem….the BBC kindly provides a link to the Telegraph’s report:
Telegraph / NEW 2 hours ago… focused on “spin” and deliving a “good news story”, a government adviser has said. Professor Sir Brian Jarman, of Imperial College London, worked…
That’s what I pay my £145.00 a year for….something Drudge provides for free if I just want links with no thought or comment.
