From the Go Home-vans to changing the Immigration Act to this week’s Windrush scandal, James believes she looks at two people suffering the same thing, but cares more about the one who’s white than the one who isn’t.
James said: “It’s an astonishing decision to have arrived at and it’s one from which I will happily retreat if she offers up a proper account.
“Why were these records destroyed?
“Why was the advice that this would happen if she pursued this hostile environment course ignored?
“Why were the vans unleashed on to the streets of this country?
“Why was the advice on the clause on the Immigration Act 2014 quietly ignored on her watch?
“And why do we now get her former advisor Nick Timothy taking to social media to offer up his support for the idea that this scheme is wrong? ‘Sensible policies’ which have unfortunately caused these stories of victims of the worst imaginable thing a government can do to you.
Leaked Home Office documents undermine Amber Rudd’s claim that police cuts were not to blame for increase in violent offending. As usual for the Tories, they were unable to back up their claims that the cuts were not responsible with any evidence.
Home Office statistics show the number of police officers fell from 143,734 in March 2010 to 123,142 in March 2017.
Theresa May has refused to rule out offering up the NHS to American companies as part of a post-Brexit trade deal with the US.
The Prime Minister’s refusal to protect the NHS from American businesses comes days after a Twitter row between US President Donald Trump and UK Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt.
Under a private NHS you would have to reach into your pocket much more. Not everything is covered by insurance (which you’d also need to take out under a private NHS). Many Tory MPs (and some Labour) have financial interests in private health insurance. This means selling off the NHS would benefit their own pockets.
For people who require insulin you’d have to pay for it yourself. According to the Facebook post 30 days supply of insulin costs $807.96 (which at the time of writing this article equates to £579.29). Check live conversion here.
Theresa May has been caught out by the UK statistics watchdog for misleading the public over the NHS. Sir David Norgrove said the Prime Minister’s comparisons between A&E waiting times in Wales and England were “not valid”.
It is the second time the Government has been called out over its use of statistics, after senior Tory Health Committee chair Sarah Wollaston attacked Conservative ministers for “disingenuous” use of figures on the scale of the winter crisis.
Theresa May has failed to apologise for misleading the public.
Let’s not kid ourselves into thinking the Tories actually care about the environment. A few years ago the Tories had a green logo which they dropped after Cameron failed to deny he referred to Earth-friendly policies as ‘green crap’ and wanted rid of it – maybe because it was too costly to his donors.
Theresa May wants you to believe she’s ‘waging war on waste‘ but look carefully and you’ll see it’s not all waste. It’s only waste which China no longer wants to import. She hasn’t turned green. It’s just about the money with her as usual.
Paramedics were “devastated” to find a pensioner dead in her home almost four hours after she called an ambulance. The NHS is now in such a state that the Ambulance Service has to use taxis to take people to hospital.
Meanwhile Jeremy Hunt has apologised for the state of the NHS then gone on to say things are now much better than they were. Theresa May has also apologised but denied there is a problem.
It seems the public will have to discover the truth for themselves because no Government Minister wants to admit the NHS is in a state of emergency.
A former Tory Health Secretary Stephen Dorrell has admitted there is a problem saying “British public services need major rethink and focus on spending”. (Article Backup)
Another former Tory Health Minister Dan Poulter apparently has his priorities elsewhere after being accused of putting ‘hand up skirts’. Could the Tories be any worse? (Article Backup)
