  • Why I'll leave RCGP if Julia Hartley-Brewer speaks at conference

    Christopher Ho's comment 25 May 2019 12:23pm

    Well Merlin, as the censorship of Tommy Robinson, Carl Benjamin, Milo Yiannopoulos, etc shows, censorship only drives the market for dissident voices, especially if these voices speak the TRUTH. Pulse take note....

    Highlights the lack of knowledge of history and greater perspective of an acting CD doesn't it?

    You heard it here first..... This is not going to work.... Another sticking plaster/deck chair on THE fundamental issue, and that is a universal socialised comprehensive healthcare system is 1. authoritarian, 2. unsustainable, 3. harmful to the general public (by taking responsibility away)

  • May heralds 'proper funding for mental health' in resignation speech

    Christopher Ho's comment 24 May 2019 3:38pm

    There were lots to her resignation speech that got to me. And not in a good way. 1 of those being - I'm the 2nd female Prime Minister, but I won't be the last....... Blows my mind, that a supposed "Conservative" PM is playing GROUP IDENTITY POLITICS..... Since when was gender taken into account when selecting a PM....

    There's only 1 thing you should be apologising for Dr Matt, and that is if you were wrong. But to prove you wrong, someone would have to challenge your points. However, removal/deletion is simply stifling speech. Offence is not given, it is taken. I thought we were all adults here, anyone who is "offended", should grow up, counter our points openly, or go home and cry to mummy. "Faux outrage/offence taking", is a form of child-like, emotion-based behaviour. It doesn't belong in the marketplace of ideas or open public discourse.

    I appreciate that Merlin, though it seems I have no avenue to investigate what led to my comment being deleted...

    What are the readers' opinions on doxing then? Another method of stifling speech?
    Do you guys approve of that?
    Angus Podgorny has been trying to dox me ever since I have been countering his left wing idealogy on Pulse :)

    Lol the irony is too good. My previous comment, which was satirical, has been deleted. And hence, nobody can challenge what I said. Merlin, would you defend to the death my right to say anything?

  • Trainee GP takes on clinical director role within primary care network

    Christopher Ho's comment 16 May 2019 11:30am

    |Iain Chalmers | GP Partner/Principal|16 May 2019 10:20am

    Its called Clown World now - the description of the Left's worldview by the Right. HONK! The NHS(socialised healthcare), certainly falls into that category. Looks like experience of running a GP surgery isn't a requirement of a clinical director. I must be qualified enough to be Health Secretary then......

    @Angus - I'm sure they'll give more credence to what you say if you actually named yourself, much less show that you're actually in the medical profession AND practicing in this country too.

    I don't have to explain to you how its different when you refuse to address my points or meet me halfway. The reading public can decide who's credibility they rather side with.

    @ Angus - Well you would know hypocrisy wouldn't you lol I'm not hiding behind any avatar. Are you denying you're not an avatar? My GMC registered name is simply not the same as the name I go by here. The only reason I criticised you was when you brought my credibility into qsn. I wouldn't have done so otherwise and have otherwise focused on the points you bring to the debate.

    Nice of you to ignore all of my other points and questions to focus on this issue, and also not volunteer your name for me to check your registration too. You want to do this on equal grounds? Then lets have your name.

    I suppose when you can't counter the arguments I brought up, you go for the man instead of the ball, and try and dox me. The more you try and do so though, the more you lose with the readers, so the more I win. I almost want you to keep at it lol

    Simple, I might not be registered with the GMC with that name. I fail to see why I'm having to justify my credibility to you though, a pseudonym without even a name up, who sounds like a Labour schill.

    Batman, that article you referenced is BS. It's waffle trying to disassociate federal govt from its reliance on federal taxpayers. However, you forget the primary role of the US federal govt as stated in its Constitution.

    Sure, a state can print and issue as much credit/money as it wants. However, we all know what happens when that goes overboard. And I believe, the population (We, the people) are less ignorant of the processes by which the state works. More so, when the state seems to be doing a sh*te job (e.g Brexit).

    Angus again misrepresents capitalism. GDP growth does not equate to GPD per capita growth. Although saying that, "screwing" up /changing a socialised, politicised, abused, health service is in my opinion, a good thing. I've asked Angus this a few times now. You see the misuse/abuse everyday from both patients and the state - yet you want to give them both MORE funds to misuse/abuse???

    Here's some of the evidence: https://www.taxation.co.uk/articles/2017-06-06-336495-number-income-taxpayers-likely-fall-2017-18-low-earners-leave-system

    There's more evidence and the interesting bit is how we compare globally.

    Angus, your 'indictment' of the system is false again:
    Its not a zero sum game. The reasons why lots of people do not 'reach the level' of paying tax, are that the state is too big -- smaller economy. The tax burden is by global average, sizeable -- smaller tax take. You betray your ignorance of economics and history. Well, all socialists do.

    I've never said the poor shouldn't get 'healthcare', I'm fine with emergency treatment and maybe access to primary care provision. Everything else, should be an individual's responsibility in life - just as it is in most of the rest of the world.

    I've also said before, I do practice in the UK. Its ironic you question my credibility, whilst hiding behind a persona.

  • Female GPs far more likely to work beyond scheduled hours than male GPs

    Christopher Ho's comment 10 May 2019 3:49pm

    lol the tone of the article seems to want to point to various other external factors when simply the answer to the question of "why?" would suffice. If women choose to work longer than CONTRACTED hours, then surely they have the liberty to do so. If men are more likely to stick to their scheduled hours, then surely they also have the liberty to do so. If you want to achieve "equity" in this, then asking female GPs to be less agreeable, and more conscientious, would again, suffice.

    "BMA GP Committee workload lead Dr Farah Jameel said: ‘And most importantly it will continue to increase the unacceptable gender pay gap, which must be addressed immediately.'

    --- I wonder what Dr Jameel would suggest to address this. As far as I'm aware, we already have gender discriminatory laws in the work place. And every individual negotiates their own terms of partnership. If you can demonstrate pay difference SOLELY down to gender, by all means SUE.

    It all stinks of an ideological agenda of course, and group identity politics...

  • Patients must be told safety is at risk due to GP workload

    Christopher Ho's comment 09 May 2019 12:19pm

    Lol Batman, I just read it and anyone with an iota of intelligence can see the holes in it.
    1. The author is a Labour MP
    2. He talks about NEEDS and Nye Bevan, when clearly Primary Care is no longer about just 'needs' anymore.
    3. He essentially suggests that GPs want to give up autonomy to be 'salaried' and wants bigger govt intervention, not smaller.

    Nah, fake news alert...

    Angus drops buzzwords like 'fairness and balance' to try and gain the moral high ground. If anything, its the total opposite. Fairness - is paying for what you need and use, how about that? Its the way it is run in the vast majority of the rest of the world lol Equality? Well everyone has access to healthcare, doesn't mean the minority of the population (taxpayers) should cover all costs for everything for everyone else. Especially, when done via 3rd party/the state. Balance? Ya, there's no balance when there's no free market force to balance the demand side of the equation. Or when the impression that the 'supply' is limitless.

  • Does RCGP really represent who it claims to?

    Christopher Ho's comment 09 May 2019 11:10am

    To be honest Angus, I rather be on a known list of complete 'arseholes' lol At least I am less likely to be intimidated by 'management'. Are you convinced to reduced funding of current 'management' first to bring about change yet? Or are you still pro-higher govt spending/taxes?

    Well, if its not done intentionally, the alternative - incompetence, is worse is it not...

    "The RCGP may not be perfect but it’s heart is very much in the right place." - That's the kind of thing an abused partner says - They beat the sh*te outta me, but their 'heart is in the right place"....
