Wendy Young's Salome having a bad day! / 11 February 2014

Roses are dead

Violence is cool

Bring me the head

Of the Party that rules!

And just to prove this:

I was shouting at the radio this morning as they announced the Stuart Rose ex M&S head of whatever is to be brought in to advise NHS managers!!!  I could tell them - sling your hooks/go/sod off/too many chiefs etc!!  Why are they treating the NHS like a private enterprise?  Just what we need, run the NHS like a business!  Though I heard this on Radio 4 I must also stop listening to LBC who seem to think managers of Tesco, and Sainsburys can run things.  Seems we're not just getting any manager, this is an M&S manager..mmmm!  Who will he bring in?  Mary Queen of Slops??? 

Bouquet of Barbed Liars!
