This election needs proper initiatives around GP workload


This could turn out to be the most extraordinary general election in post war period . Apart from being against a backdrop of Brexit or No Brexit conundrum, there is actually no one easy way to predict which party is to win the contest , despite Tories might think the poll was generally favourable to them .But early ominous signs have already been written on the wall when the most ‘clever ‘ Mr Rees-Mogg gave his comment about the Grenfell Tower disaster which had to be rescued by his immediate apology but was further complicated by another insouciant comment made by his conservative buddy , Andrew Bridgen . More will come ; not to mention the resignation of their Welsh Secretary , Mr Cairns , this evening. Labour , on the other hand , is holding at least , one ticking bomb named ‘Antisemitism’ . Its background powerful political machineries ( NEC , Momentum etc) have to be switched on to ‘cleanse’ the party . While that always remind me of Third International from last century , drastic measures adopted could potentially backfire. For those preferring the extreme ends of the ‘light spectrum’ of politics , you can choose either Liberal Democrat pushing hard to revoke Brexit led by their female wannabe prime minister or Brexit party for no-deal Brexit led by a leader who does not even participate in the actual election( ironically, his most successful elections were with EU he never supports!). So all their political castles are prone to ‘implosion’ (I always believe that castles are more likely to be conquered from inside than outside ,anyway 😆) They all need a campaign to sell something highly trustworthy, what else is better than doctors and nurses in NHS ?😜😂 So , feel free to stick anything as unimaginable, far-fetching and eccentric on this ‘menu’ , Jaimie🤪 The truth is any new government will need us far more than we need it . And there is no better time to be Aladdin calling for his wishes . Thank you , Jaimie
