According to the BBC deaths in police custody are down. Yes by 4 people. They also neglect to mention that no police have been bought to justice for murdering people ( afro -carribean )in cells. Plus detained without trail is up. Prison poplulatuiion is up, gun crime appears to be up - yes all following the American Way.
As for state funded projects being in the shit eg. pensions and the NHS. The BBC reporting neglects to mention those fat cats and companies that have been bleeding us dry ( particulalry with IT systems - step forward Fujitsu and Siemens ) and Propertty development, speculation and PFI, step forward eg Camden council, Islington Council, F D Savill ( cleaning up in ALMO land ), etc etc.
Waiting times are apparently down but again these statistics have been fiddles as anyone who has been to a London casuality department recently.
Why are social workers being paid loads of money despite being generally incompetent. Discuss the manufacture of pointless office work.i.e the middle england job creation club.
Discuss why one half of the population appear to be getting employed in policing the other half. e.g. in Council snooping, immigration and social work, communuity 'support'
now there's a laugh' teams/officers , Group 4 security at Dole ofices and detention centres and prisons, the overpaid police force, sure start, teachers,......
Why are so many GPs incompetent and little more than drug dealers for the pharmaceutical industry e.g Seroxat to teenagers.
Whay are so many school teachers not very 'bright'? Could it be recruitment policy? Discuss the agenda.
