      For Mr Bunp

      One ice cream per day is a lot. You have to learn how to survive heat especially challenging when you are not use to it. Make sure the cats have access to clean cool water…keep them inside in front of a fan…make sure the house is dark…light attracts heat….keep a spray bottle at hand and get Mrs Bump to spray the back of your knees….it works. Mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun….Stay indoors ! De rien !

        Mad dogs and Englishmen 😂

        I have wondered where the sense
        has been in being out in midday Sun.

        I’ve also wondered why I wasn’t taught to
        wear hats and sunglasses when I had to be.

        I now very much enjoy buying nice sunglasses.
        They’re important if I’m only going to be in a car.

    … recently told the Guardian, the government is slipping through plans to “effectively privatise the NHS by stealth” in “the name of a pandemic”. This story of privatisation is not one of wholesale transfer, such as the sell-off of British Gas or Royal Mail, but rather of a gradual hollowing out, a process that has been further accelerated by the pandemic and will continue …

    In 2010, for example, the NHS spent £4.1bn on private sector contracts; by 2019, this had more than doubled to £9.2bn.

    Already, the government’s pandemic response is shaping the future structures of the NHS, public procurement and public scrutiny. Look at PPE procurement, which has functioned recently as a giant slush fund for Tory donors. Matt Hancock’s pub landlord, Alex Bourne, and a former adviser to Priti Patel, Samir Jassal, are just two beneficiaries of what the charity Transparency International has called “systemic biases in the award of PPE contracts favouring those with political connections to the party of government”. The charity says these red flags require more, not less, scrutiny. But less scrutiny is precisely what the government has been engineering.

      https://weownit.org.uk/blog/here-are-gp-practices-taken-over-us-health-insurance-giant-centene

      US health insurance giant, Centene, through its UK subsidiary, Operose Health, has been taking over GP surgeries and practices in London and across the country for many years.

      Centene has recently taken over AT Medics, a primary care provider responsible for 49 GP surgeries and over 370,000 patients in the Greater London area.

      With a total of 70 GP surgeries and practices, Centene is almost certainly the largest single provider of NHS primary care in England.

      This is shocking. Even the Daily Mail has called Centene a “profit greedy” company. Below is a full list …
