The “Choice” word

witchround

The Witch Doctor is getting fed up with the word “Choice.” Once it was a useful word in English vocabulary.

No longer.

It is being twisted, intertwingled and abused to the extent it no longer has any meaning at all.

The Witch Doctor is now going to remove the word “choice” from her dictionary and replace it in her Witching Profanity Aide Memoire.

She will, however, continue to use the word “choice.” But from now on, when she does use it you will be aware that she is uttering a profanity.

Take the Health and Social Care Bill. If everything goes according to plan it will be debated on Monday.

This bill is full of “choice,” the profanity. If the HSCB goes through, it will give patients very little of the former true meaning of the word “choice.”

But forget about that for the moment.

After all, the only thing you need to remember about the bill, is the weasel little words that indicate the Secretary of State for Health will no longer be responsible for providing your healthcare. The NHS is being dismantled in the name of “choice,” (the profanity) in order to service the private sector in the hope that healthcare can become a commodity like coal used to be.

Bad Med raised everyones’ awareness of this some time ago.

Again

and again.

Every MP is aware too of this sneaky abdication of the Secretary of State’s responsibility for healthcare. Trust an old witch when she tells you that ALL the MPs know about the weasel words in the HSCB. Every single one. The witching community has seen to that during the witching hour antics.

Whether all MPs are capable of thinking it through is quite another matter.

Whether they are capable of following the will of their constituents is quite another matter also.

How many of their constituents wants their health to become a commodity?

How many of their constituents wants the NHS handed over to the private sector?

Have they asked them?

Have they really and truly asked them without introducing the corrupted word “choice” into the conversation?

Nothing changed after The Listening Exercise.

Hopefully the weasel words will be the ones that result in the Bill being chucked out of  the Commons.

But something else is happening. The highly emotive subject of abortion is now intertwingling with the Health and Social Care Bill. There is much trumpeting going on about it.

It intertwingled at the end of March this year but nobody paid much attention to it apart from the groups that call themselves Pro“Choice.”

In the meantime, forget about your own personal views about abortion. This is not the point right now.

Suddenly there is a great flurry of activity just a few days before the HSCB is due to appear in parliament.

ABORTION RULES TO BE TIGHTENED IN THE BIGGEST SHAKE UP FOR A GENERATION

DOWNING STREET FORCES U-TURN ON NADINE DORRIES ABORTION PROPOSALS

GUARDIAN SPIN

DAVID CAMERON “WON’T BACK ABORTION ADVICE CHANGE”

And then look what happened.

Someone rose from the dead.

Proving there is life hereafter, a long deceased (tory) Church of England Archbishop speaks out from the grave rather eloquently:

WHY DOES UNISON SUBSIDISE ABORTION?

CRUCIAL DECEPTION OF ABORTION RIGHTS

My Black Cat is wondering what on earth (or heaven or hell) is going on right now.

She wonders why the government seem to be doing so many U-turns on the matter that they are tumbling upside down.

She thinks HMG don’t want a highly charged abortion debate to scupper their HSCB.

So is a strong abortion intertwinglement with the HSCB and lots of arguments about it a good thing if you want to see the whole HSCB being scuppered in the Commons?

Or is it a bad thing?

Are they intertwingling like mad just by chance?

Or is there another agenda that is being orchestrated?

My Black Cat thinks says she will keep skulking around to see if she can catch a rat.

  1. I think you’re thinking along the same lines as me, WD. Is this pro-lifers taking advantage of the government’s need to get this through with the minimum of fuss, or is it a diversion to stop papers talking about other aspects of the bill and persuade people to be for the bill, because pro-lifers are against it? I’m not sure yet; I’ve done a bit of digging and will have to do some more like yourself. What I can tell you is that the main pro-life groups have distanced themselves from this and it was not initiated by them; SPUC is particularly grumpy about a group called ‘The Right to Know’ which seems to be backing it. Right to Life has asked its members to write to their MPs to get Nadine Dorries to amend her amendments, as it were. If it were just Nadine Dorries, I think I would be more suspicious of her motives; the involvement of Frank Field makes it a bit uncertain. He did vote against Foundation Hospitals in a couple of the votes re them and remember this was when we weren’t sure exactly what they were. Both are pro-lifers. The slap down from David Cameron might indicate that this is a ‘loose cannon’ amendment; it’s not his style. Whether or not this will help or hinder the HSCB is anyone’s guess. All the attention has focused on this, but without it, there may not have been any discussion of the HSCB at all; there certainly wasn’t before this cropped up. If I can find out any more, I’ll let you know.

  2. PS Why have you got a picture of a sheep playing the violin??!

    • Julie, its the same rendering of the “Choice” piece over and over again. It might as well be a sheep playing it as everyone is now asleep.
      No offence to the musician. It’s the tune! I love the violin! (Listening, not playing!)
