Nanny's Targets Kill
Nanny would have us believe that her rules, regulations and targets (used to enforce her rules) are there for our own good. She would have us believe that she has our own interests at heart, and above all wants us to lead long, happy and healthy lives.
Unfortunately this is complete bollocks, as the recent shocking revelations about Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust, which runs Stafford and Cannock Chase hospitals, prove.
Such were the failings within the "Trust" (a contradiction in terms) that 400-1200 people died as a result of gross mismanagement and neglect (in spite of, or rather because of, Nanny's farking target driven health service).
The situation was so bad that even our "beloved" Prime Minister was forced to apologise (something he actually doesn't do normally) for the "inexcusable" failings.
Families of the deceased, and those lucky enough to escape the hospitals alive, have described "Third World" conditions at the trust, with some patients drinking water from vases because they were so thirsty and others screaming in pain.
The trust, when initially confronted with complaints, claimed that the anomalies were due to problems with its recording of data rather than the quality of care for patients.
How these bastards try to deceive and lie to us when they feel threatened!
Given that Nanny claims her target driven NHS is "world class", how can such a Third World disaster happen?
Let me explain:
1 Targets encourage cheating, greed and an abrogation of self responsibility.
2 No one is prepared to take responsibility for their own actions, as it is easier to hide behind targets and procedures.
3 Targets can be abused; eg if there is a 4 hour treatment target, hospitals easily meet that by not admitting a patient until the 4 hour target can be met (ie they will rather let the patient suffer and die rather than fail to meet the target).
In summary, the ultimate result of the Nanny state is the stifling of initiative and self responsibility; where no one is prepared to take responsibility for their actions and people hid behind "procedures", targets and red tape.
Nanny is the enemy of the people, and will kill us all if we don't dump her first!
