Unholy trinity

1. The CQC. An utterly worthless organisation of box tickers who achieve nothing but to demoralise and demotivate wherever they stick their furtive carping noses, making life even more difficult for practices already on the edge.

2. Professor Stephen Field, a smug self serving arse licking arrogant utter bell end.

3. The Daily Mail!

And no, I'm not going to provide a link.

Human rights

December 10, today, is Human Rights Day. The UN declaration on human rights was issued on this date in 1948. Although in the UK we have a Human Rights Act is was not passed into law until 1998, some 50 years later. For reasons DZ can not understand there is considerable hostility to the Human Rights Act in the gutter press (daily mail) and even the present government seems hell bent on repealing it.

DZ feels that those who criticise or oppose the act can not possibly be familiar with it's articles. To summarise;

Article 2. (there is no article 1!). The right to life.

Article 3 The right not to be subjected to torture, or inhumane or degrading treatment.

Article 4 The right not to be held in slavery or servitude. (Jeremy Hunt take note)

Article 5 The right to liberty and security.

Article 6 The right to a fair trial. (GMC take note)

Article 7 The right not to be punished without law. (This is particularly relevant to the GMC, who insist on knowing if a doctor has committed an offense overseas, even if it is for something that is not illegal in this country, such as being gay for example)

Article 8 The right to respect for private life, which includes the right to privacy of correspondence.

Article 9 The right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion.

Article 10. The right to freedom of expression, freedom of speech.

Article 11 The right to freedom of assembly and association.

Article 12 The right to marry

So, what's not to like?

I smell a rat!

So at the last moment the strike was averted, though too late for the thousands of patients who were told their appointments, operations etc were cancelled. It doesn't seem to me that there is very much concrete that the doctors have actually been offered. I don't think we've heard the end of this dispute.

Friday, 20 November 2015


So the junior doctor's strike is almost certainly going ahead. Which puts DZ, as someone who does a little agency work from time to time, in something of a dilemma. He is very much supportive of the juniors and their action. They should strike, absolutely, and if DZ were in a substantive consultant post he would be keen to facilitate their action.

There is a strong likelihood that DZ will be asked to work one the days that action is taken. So does he refuse such offers as a gesture of support, or does he accept the work, at high agency rates to cause Hunt one more small financial pinprick.

Any views?

Wanking again

Staying on the other side of the Atlantic, DZ has in the past commented on the bizarre attitude towards masturbation exhibited by some of the fringe religions over there. Well it's not just the fringe as this statement from the "United States conference of catholic bishops" demonstrates.

............................... other sins in addition to those already mentioned, especially masturbation. Masturbation, which is deliberate, erotic stimulation often to the point of orgasm, commonly occurs together with pornography use. While popular culture largely sees it as acceptable, masturbation is always gravely contrary to chastity and the dignity of one's body. Like other sins against chastity, it seeks sexual pleasure outside of the mutual self-giving and fruitful intimacy of spouses in marriage, in this case, even outside of any relationship at all. In addition, engaging in masturbation has powerful neurological effects that can make it into a highly addictive behavior. However, true freedom from this destructive habit is possible with the grace of Christ."

DZ had always subscribed to Woody Allen's view of wanking, that it's "safe sex with someone you love" but apparently not. Even the view that DZ had thought long discredited, that wanking causes mental health issues is promoted. It must be true obviously, this is the catholic church talking. And they do so have the moral high ground.

Dear future doctor

DZ has been sent a video by some Medical Students in the USA. I think it's just as appropriate over here. Enjoy. And thank you Laura.

Interesting times

So the results of the junior doctor's ballot is now out. A 99% vote for full industrial action is utterly stunning and strike action is now inevitable given the intransigence of Hunt. Hunt is becoming increasingly beleaguered and desperate and even parliamentary watchdogs have criticised his recent blatant lying. I have no doubt that the oppressive and threatening stance of the GMC on the matter is a result of Hunt influencing the head bully.

Fuck him! Tell me Dickson, which of the 37,000 or so doctors who voted to strike are you going to have a go at? Are you going to pick out a few as an example or every single one?

Looking at Hunt's proposals for a new Consultant contract it looks as if he hasn't learned a thing. Same old demands for more work for less pay, with threats to impose if no agreement. And same old unbelievable tripe. If you cut the starting salary and the top rate of pay, and abolish higher awards, how is that cost neutral?

I have little doubt that the new found unity of seniors and trainees will continue. Most Consultants fully support their trainees in the current situation, because looking at things, it's our turn next to take on a hostile government.

Unless government learn in the meantime.

Say what you like about Jeremy Hunt. He has one achievement that no other health minister has ever equaled. He has managed to unite the entire medical profession.

Liberty and privacy

Orwell's 1984 is about to get a step closer.

Inevitably the government argue these measures are necessary in the interests of our safety.

“They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

The end

I've only just noticed that the world is about to end in about 90 minutes. And I spent most of my day ironing & cleaning. Bugger!

Saturday, 26 September 2015

Nothing new.

A recent article in the guardian suggests that all hospital in patients should have the name of their responsible Consultant displayed at the head of the bed. What puzzles me is that this idea is described as "an initiative", as if it's some clever new idea. When DZ qualified, 40 years ago, it was standard practice. So when, and why, did people stop doing it? I have no idea, but I'd put my money on the infection control gestapo.

DZ has mentioned in the past that he is a great fan of cask conditioned ale. He likes it more than anything. Well, almost anything.

Quote & translation.

“Savings from public sector pay and workforce reform made a significant contribution to reducing the (NHS) deficit over the course of the last Parliament, saving around £8bn."

Greg Hands MP, Chief Secretary to the treasury.

Translation... We saved £8billion by taking it from the pockets of our workforce.

Assuming that the NHS employs 1.3 million staff (full time equivalents) that means that the saving was made by exploiting, robbing and fucking over every single one of them to the tune of £6154.

And he seems rather proud of it!

Sunday, 23 August 2015


DZ has often on this site criticised the GMC revalidation process. Anyone who has gone through revalidation will confirm the utter pointlessness of the excercise. Ridiculous box ticking, confirming that you've attended so called Continuing Professional Development, when in fact the whole point of attending the meeting was to enable you to tick the box, and nothing more. And testimonials from your mates saying what a wonderful guy you are to work with. Even Shipman could have got enough of these, as well as the "how was it for you" forms filled out by patients. DZ has had patients who have filled these out for his revalidation express huge scorn for the forms. The whole process is a complete waste of time and resources, and achieves nothing. It is no more than another stick to beat us, another nail in the coffin of medical staff morale. And yet government and the GMC continue to assert how good it is for the profession.

Revalidation is specifically cited in this article as one of the reasons why young doctors are deserting the UK and taking their expensively acquired medical expertise elsewhere. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm not aware of any other country that has followed the UK example and gone down this route.

The article sought the opinion of that twat Dickson at the GMC on the loss of these valuable people, and inevitably he failed to acknowledge that revalidation is one of the aspects of British medical practice that they wish to escape. Instead he just gave a few sound bites, reiterating his support for the process. Is he really that stupid? Yes, of course he is.

“That which can be asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence.”

DZ was very disappointed today to find, on checking, that he's not on the Ashley Madison database. But then, not being married, (any more) means I can't have the excitement of an extra marital affair. And being an atheist means that there is no guilt for me attached to any form of rumpy pumpy at all. Forbidden fruit tastes sweetest, as my mother used to say.

Two of a kind

Would it reflect badly on DZ if he were to suggest that it would be a good idea to cast these two away on a remote desert island together, and leave the fuckers to it.

Another blue gas

In my last post I link to a newspaper article featuring a young man who tragically died of hypoxia after inhaling pure nitrous oxide. The article emphasises that this was a consequence of substance abuse. However there is another situation where theoretically exactly the same situation could arise in what is perceived as a much more harmless practice.

Helium balloons are widely bought both for adults and children. How many people, including children, have opened the balloon and inhaled the gas to produce an amusing squeaky voice? There's no oxygen in them either.

Blue gas

DZ is fond of browsing in old bookshops. In particular he likes medical textbooks from the 1920s and 30s, and autobiographies of doctors who worked at the time. It's fascinating to read about some of the things we used to do to people.

For example. I found an old textbook of anaesthesia, in which was described the "nitrous oxide jactitation technique" of starting anaesthesia.

Apparently what you did was this. You put a mask on the patient's face and administered 100% nitrous oxide. That is, no oxygen. None at all. Unsurprisingly, in a very short time the patient became blue, and unconscious. The anaesthetist (who at that time was likely to be the surgeon's houseman) continued to administer 100% nitrous oxide until the patient exhibited a phenomenon known at the time as "jactitation". What is known today as a hypoxic fit! The houseman would only then switch in oxygen, and ether, and all was well. Apparently.

It sort of puts in perspective the panic you see in today's anaesthetists when the saturation drops below 90%.

I've mentioned this technique to a number of anaesthetists and only one (older generation) had ever heard of it. He assures me that the technique was still used, mainly by dentists, right into the 1960s.
 The practice now seems to be making something of a comeback. You'd think wouldn't you that if people were going to sell N2O for recreational purposes that it might be a good idea to put some O2 in. Just 20% would do

Anyone for eugenics?

DZ very rarely buys fast food. But once in a while he finds himself hungry enough to eat a raw scabby cat with the fur on, and finds no alternative. And so recently he found himself in a Burger King where he he enjoyed this exchange with a young lady behind the counter.

DZ. “Burger & chips please.”
YL. “You mean fries? That’ll be £6.50 please. You wanna drink wi’that?”
DZ. “No thank you.”
YL. “It’s cheaper with a drink.”
DZ “Really? OK then I’ll have a diet coke please.”
YL. “OK that’ll be £6.80 please.”
DZ. “ …………………ummmmmm,………I thought you said it would be cheaper with a drink?
YL. “Yes thats right it’s cheaper with a drink.”
DZ. “But £6.80 is more than £6.50.”
YL. “ Uh.??”
DZ. “If it’s £6.50 without a drink, and £6.80 with a drink then it’s not cheaper with a drink. Is it?”
YL. “That’s right. It’s cheaper with a drink.”
DZ. “No it isn’t! £6.80 is not cheaper than £6.50……………..Is it?”

At this point there was obviously some inner intellectual turmoil within the girl and a long period of silence. Then she called over her supervisor.

YL. “This customer ordered a drink, and now he says he don’t wannit”

Fuck me gently! Where do they find these people?

Care of the elderly

We all know that finding beds for emergencies can be a problem. And that part of the problem is that many elderly patients occupy beds when they no longer need hospital care, but there is nowhere to send them. Nursing home beds seem to be in short supply too. But I had no idea how desperate the shortage of nursing home beds actually was till I saw this.

Short list of one

Jeremy Hunt. Not the worst, most ignorant, dishonest, unsuitable health secretary the NHS has ever had.................................Oh wait!
Yes he is!

Saturday, 11 July 2015


In his time DZ, in common with just about all hospital specialists, has done a little research. My own feeling is that the insistence that some research appearing on a CV is an absolute necessity for career progression is misplaced. Forcing the disinterested to do research can only produce poor quality research, and dilute resources, starving those who really want to do it, and produce good quality stuff.

But that's not what I'm going to explore today.

Imagine for a moment DZ does a research project. He collects the measured data and does the analysis. And gets results entirely unexpected and counter intuitive. His natural reaction is to doubt the data. So what does he do? Does he, doubting his results, submit what he actually found, or does he throw it in the bin and start again? Either would be acceptable ethically. But there's a third option. What if he looks at the data, and alters it, so that it supports his preconceptions? What if he tweaks the data here and there so that the results are completely altered to conform with what he expected to find?

In medicine that would rightly be called "falsification" or "fraud". If found out my paper, if published, would be redacted and my reputation destroyed. I might well lose my job, and have to answer to the GMC. And quite right too. Research fraud is a serious matter.

The point of research is to observe nature. The data you collect is sacrosanct. If you find you've made an error you can discard it, but you can't just alter it. Your measurements should be inviolable, whether you like them or not.

Altering your data is just not acceptable or excusable. Even worse is when you admit the fraud and try and sanitise it by calling your falsifications "adjustments". Present your data, like it or not unadjusted. Don't piss down my back and tell me it's raining.

Or you're no better than this guy.

Prior to 1987 child sex abuse did not exist. At least in the minds of the general public, successive governments and the medical profession, it didn't exist. In reality of course it was widespread. Also in reality great efforts were made to ignore it and suppress any mention of it. In his autobiography “This time next week” the author Leslie Thomas, orphaned during the war, describes how widespread it was in Barnardo's homes. It was ignored. When cases come to light now about child sex abuse prior to 1987, featuring various individuals, it is extraordinary how many people knew what was going on. Also extraordinary were the efforts made to keep it all brushed under the carpet. This enabled predators such as Saville to act, unimpeded, for years. And it allowed institutions such as the catholic church to facilitate the actions of the numerous paedophiles within it's ranks.

In 1987 all this changed. In that year two paediatricians at a Middlesborough hospital, Dr Marietta Higgs, and Dr Geoffrey Wyatt, reported 121 cases of child sex abuse to social services over a period of 4 months. Now, in retrospect, it is clear that the diagnosis was correct in the majority of cases. But at the time it was something society just didn't want to hear. There was a huge outcry. The two doctors were widely vilified, especially in the Daily Mail. Like other whistleblowers before and since they were turned on and viciously attacked. A government report, published a year later was a whitewash. Many abused children were returned to abusive households.

But the genie was out of the bottle. Society had now been forced to address an issue it would prefer to have ignored.

In 1994 Dr Higgs' employers found themselves in a dilemma. Due to the adverse publicity they felt that Dr Higgs position in Middlesborough was untenable, and that they could no longer allow her to work there. However she had actually done nothing wrong, so could not be dismissed. Their solution was to move her to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Gateshead, to take up a position as a neonatologist, with no duties related to child sex abuse. Dr Higgs was well respected within paediatric circles in the area, and the paediatric consultants in Gateshead were unanimous in welcoming her.

The rest of the Consultant body at Gateshead were not so welcoming. There was an immediate outcry among them, and strong opposition to the appointment expressed. At a bad tempered meeting of the senior staff committee the Paediatricians were openly berated and abused, in a shameful and disgusting display of mob mentality, led by a consultant general surgeon, coincidentally also called Higgs, though not related to Marietta. All they lacked at the meeting was pitchforks. A motion was proposed to demand of management that Ms. Higgs not be allowed to work at Gateshead. In a secret ballot on the motion only one non paediatric consultant voted with the paediatricians and against the mob. The appointment went ahead anyway.

Not just the medical profession but the whole of society owes Marietta Higgs a debt of gratitude that has never been acknowledged. She forced a society that didn't want to know to accept that child sex abuse did not just exist, but was common.. She prised open the unwilling eyes of society to an evil that it did not want to see. As a result of this the Children's Act was passed in 1998. Once the problem was acknowledged, only then could it be addressed, and to this day historic child sex abuse cases continue to be unearthed, often involving high profile individuals. Children in the UK, and arguably beyond, are safer today because Drs Higgs and Wyatt had the courage of their convictions.

"“God told me to do it” is simply not an acceptable replacement for moral reasoning"

Friday, 26 June 2015


Northern Ireland is now the only part of the British Isles where LGBT people can't get married, and two ladies who live there are testing this stance in the courts.

 These two have pioneered before, being the first Lesbian couple in the UK to enter into a civil union.

At that time the local religious bigots (and ulster has more than it's fair share of them) protested at the venue.

Apparently they held up placards proclaiming "sodomy is sin". Bearing in mind that "sodomy" is usually taken to mean anal intercourse, leads me to the view that these people don't quite understand the nature of a lesbian sexual relationship.

Spot the difference

"Calfwit Hunt"..................I quite like that.
So which of the above two do you suppose is more deserving of being turned into veal?

Thank fuck for that!!

We can all breathe a sigh of relief as the prospect of that utter loon Tredinnick chairing the health select committee sinks into the mist. He lost out to Dr Sarah Wollaston by ten to one.

DZ is nonetheless concerned that this utter buffoon actually got 64 votes. That's 64 members of parliament so utterly scientifically illiterate and pathologically stupid that they thought Tredinnick an appropriate choice. Dr Wollaston has been known to deviate from the party line on NHS matters and this may be the reason why some MPs voted against her. Either way it demonstrates the contempt with which some MPs view the medical profession.

Although the numbers of votes are in the public domain I don't know if we're allowed to know the identities of those MP's who voted for Tredinnick. I for one would love to know who's on that list. In particular I'd love to know which way that calfwit Hunt voted.

Wednesday, 10 June 2015


Middle East Respiratory Syndrome, (MERS) is a disease DZ had never heard of till today. I suspect not many other doctors have heard of it either, as it was only first described 3 years ago. There has been something of an outbreak of it lately and the WHO are taking it very seriously. Worldwide there's been a staggering 8 cases.

So, what vital advice are the WHO giving to people to help safeguard them from this condition? Apparently we are advised we MUST NOT drink camel urine!!!!

Oh fukkit, that puts a spoiler on my entire weekend!

Another man with his head up his arse

This is Dr Dan Poulter. He is medically qualified, but has spent precious little time working as a doctor, having been a politician most of his working life.

So why is DZ of the opinion that he's a twat? Could it be that he has wholeheartedly supported the Tory party in their every ill informed interference with the NHS? He has, but that's not the reason. Could it be because he's been deeply involved with every hostile act against the medical profession brought in by the government? Every deterioration in pay, pensions and  conditions he totally supported. Again, not the reason, though certainly true. Could it be because he is a supporter of the hated and stupid concept of revalidation? No, though that would be enough. Is it because he's a self aggrandising liar. No, not even that.

The reason DZ thinks this man is a worthless waste of protein is because of a recent act of supreme folly. An act which indicates he's both dangerously ignorant, and contemptuous of his own profession. What this utter fuckwit has done is to nominate this man as a candidate for chairman of the House of Commons Health Select Committee. Is he taking the piss?!

More snouts in the trough.

This is Dr Mark Porter. A suit full of bugger all, who heads up what is probably one of the least useful organisations in Britain. He's looking pretty pleased in this picture, and so he should. The BMA council, which he chairs, has just given him a 97% pay rise. Those of you who pay £440 a year subscription may wish to reflect that it takes the subscriptions of no less than 390 of you to pay his new annual salary of £171,000 pa.

Tuesday, 2 June 2015


I see that that lying scumbag Hunt has been shooting off his mouth again, claiming that agency staff are "ripping off" the NHS. He claims such staff are claiming £3500 per shift. But he doesn't actually say how long the shift was. In my experience hourly agency rates for Consultants remain firmly in two figures. I suspect Hunt simply doesn't like the fact that he can't screw agency doctors & nurses like he does regular staff. So he has decided to cap agency rates. It remains to be seen at what level the cap will come in, but if it's as low as I expect I, and I suspect many others, will simply not do the work. See how the NHS functions with no-one to fill the empty slots Hunt you turd.

I notice that Hunt and the rest of the Westminster parasites are not having their pay capped.

While we're on the subject of weather, today, 2nd June, marks the 40th anniversary of snow falling in the month of June in England.

Whither weather, whether or not.

If you are interested in the weather, and what Brit isn't? then reading today's papers could have you wondering what is going on. The Independent is typical of most papers. Today it gives two separate reports that, spliced together, indicate torrential rain, with low temperatures, and winds of up to 70mph, followed from Wednesday by a heatwave of up to 30C. So I've had a look at the BBC weather site and put in the forecast for a number of areas, most of which are the same. Daytime temperatures from 14C to 23C, and wind speeds (mph) 8 to 20. Pretty ordinary really.

So are they all just making it up as they go along. If that's the best they can do looking over the next week no wonder people are skeptical about the catastrophic pronouncements predicted for the future. Interestingly Dr Ellis, who has predicted the inundation of Hull is described by the Independent as "an expert", yet then admits he is in fact "head of policy at the Town and Country Planning Association (TCPA)" Bit of a tenuous link to climate change expertise I think. I wonder if Dr Ellis is related to Harold Camping.

And I'm continuously told I've just experienced the hottest year on record, when I distinctly remember the weather, especially through the summer, as being shit. I remember the summer of 1976. Don't tell me last year was hot.

You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.

This is Jeffrey Spector. He has reignited the ongoing debate on euthanasia and assisted dying in the UK. Reading the Telegraph article it is clear that he took his decision after long and careful thought. He had taken much time and effort to educate himself about his condition. He chose to insist on his autonomy and to take control of his life and death.
According to the Telegraph on line poll 86% of respondents believe we should all have that choice. Inevitably there are those who disagree. The BMA, succinctly described recently by Dr Rant as "as much use as a one legged man in an arse kicking contest", are firmly opposed to the concept of assisted dying. The GMC are a little less dogmatic, stating only "our guidance in Good Medical Practice is clear that doctors must adhere to the law" The implication being that if the law changed they might go along with it.
But there are those so opposed they would deny patients their autonomy for the sake of  their own philosophy, even claiming that those who wish to end their lives do not know their own mind. Dr Peter Saunders, who was not in any way involved with Mr Spector's care has been quoted as saying "“This tragic case illustrates the dangers of legalising assisted suicide or euthanasia in Britain.
“The vast majority of people with cancer or quadriplegia (which was a risk but not a present reality for this man) actually do not wish to kill themselves but rather want support and care to go on living as comfortably as possible for as long as possible”. 
What an extraordinarily arrogant and paternalistic statement. And, I believe, untrue. Dr Saunders also employs the classical "bait & switch" ploy, equating voluntary assisted dying with involuntary euthanasia, which he claims would be an inevitable development if the law was changed. Indeed on this website in his first paragraph opposing assisted dying he pulls a Godwin.
Dr Saunders is an evangelical christian, as is clear on the website. This fact, for me, raises a question. Why is it that those most opposed to assisted dying are those who believe most strongly in a better afterlife?

Gaviiformes Jevonii

Another in my occasional series of notable British loons.
There are sadly numerous people out there who entertain bizarre and absurd ideas. Everything from chemtrails, to homeopathy, and the various forms of quackery based on vitalism. I only bother to highlight them if they are particularly prominent people, or if they really are exceptional in the woo they present.
This is Graham Jevon, and he is exceptional. If you follow the link you'll see why. When I first encountered one of his posts I thought it was a Poe. But sadly it isn't. More pseodoscientific word salad per sentence than I've ever seen. Examples.
"Multi wave oscillator technology to correct your frequency and resonance"
"Bio Photon pull out physical and memorial toxins"
"We can also help assist in the correction of your DNA."
"We will scan your whole body right down to the Photons that create your DNA"
And that's just from one paragraph. So my DNA is created from photons? You learn something new every day.
But his main thrust is his anti vaccine stance. He claims to have discovered evidence that will shut down the vaccine industry in minutes, though he doesn't actually present it.
I can't decide whether this guy is a completely deranged loon who really believes all this stuff, or a cynical mercenary milking the type of people who tend to go for this sort of stuff. And there are plenty of them as you will see if you read some of the comments.  This one is fairly typical. "they (vaccines)  damage the heart centre (chakra) and it closes down, when we understand just how important the heart is, not as a blood pumping organ but as an energy field to transmit and receive information and connect us to the bigger picture"

Darwin awards

Tomorrow is "Draw Mohammed Day".
DZ did not draw this image, he doesn't have that ability. This drawing was in fact the winner of the "draw Mohammed competition" held in Garland, Texas, at the beginning of May. This was a high profile event, and Geert Wilders was present. So anyone with half a brain would be able to predict that there would be a high security presence. Also this is the USA, where many ordinary citizens are prepared, nay eager, to have a go. And specifically this was Texas, where a third of the populace owns guns, and many of them have permits to carry concealed firearms in public.
So when two islamic fundamentalists decided to attack the exhibition, using automatic rifles, what did they think was going to happen? Sure enough they were both dead within seconds of firing their first shots, and didn't get more than a few yards from their car. Well deserved Darwin awards.

More of a squeak

I have on occasion been a little unkind to the BMA. But they can still come up with some good ideas, such as this one, aimed at the new government

"for the government to fund NHS capital projects directly and to renegotiate existing PFI contracts to ensure a better deal for the nation, bringing our hospitals back into public ownership"

The question of course is whether or not the government will take any notice.

Spot the difference

Some might think that my choice of photo for the post about George Galloway was a little incongruous. Using a picture of orthodox jews to illustrate a criticism of moslems. But it was quite deliberate. Let's compare & contrast.

Monotheistic religion.
Seriously hung up about sex
Ritual mutilation of little boys' dicks.
Contempt for unbelievers, (Kuffars)
Wierd dietary restrictions
Preservation of facial hair.

Orthodox judaism;
Monotheistic religion.
Seriously hung up about sex
Ritual mutilation of little boys' dicks.
Contempt for unbelievers, (Goyim)
Wierd dietary restrictions
Preservation of facial hair.

So different aren't they


Oh bollocks!

Poor loser

I see that George Galloway has decided to try and overturn an 11,000 vote majority against him by taking legal action against Naz Shah, the new MP in his old constituency. What surprises me is, if you look at the comments to the article, how much support there is for him, and vitriol for Ms Shah. But then perhaps I shouldn't be so surprised. A lot of his supporters subscribe to a religion which has very strong views on the proper position of women in society. And a woman being in a position of authority is anathema to these people. Good old mysogeny, alive & well in Bradford.

Pleeeeeeeze Mr Cameron

As of this moment the PM has announced most of his new cabinet, but so far no mention of who is going to be health minister.
Please please please............get rid of this tosser.
