UKIP deputy leader calls for end of NHS

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the UKIP!)

There are a lot of people intending to vote UKIP at the local and European elections this month.

I wonder how many of them are aware that UKIP are openly calling for the end of the NHS?

Here is a letter from Paul Nuttall the deputy leader of UKIP – posted on his own website –  saying the NHS is so costly and inefficient that its very existence should be called into question:

UKIP NHS

.

UKIP are not a maverick, anti-establishment, libertarian party. They are a bunch of right-wing, authoritarian Thatcherites – led by a public school educated ex-banker – who don’t like foreigners or homosexuals much.

And they’d sell-off the NHS quicker than the present government given half a chance.

Please feel free to comment. And share. Thanks:

Caribbean Cuisine: Why You Will Never Go Hungry in Trinidad

Repeating Islands

crabAttracted by the photo of curried crab and dumplings shown here, I was intrigued by this enjoyable article from She-Travels Limin’n’Stylin’Blog. It offers a catalog of sorts of the wide variety of Caribbean cuisine to be found in Trinidad. My favorite section: Street Food! Here are excerpts with a link to the full article below:

Types of Cuisine: (and these are in no particular order of my love of them)

  • Creole Food – stews (famous stew chicken), and or one-pot comfort foods (pelau), macaroni pie and the always awesome, callaloo.  Just about any type of meat and beans (red, lentil, black eye), can and will be stewed Tini-Style. [. . .]
  • Street Food – with the rise of the street-food phenom, TnT has now categorized what is deemed as street food (but we’ve always knows), you stand up by the doubles cart and devour 3 doubles, and drink…

Outrage after supermarkets admit meat on sale was alive before being killed

Pride's Purge

(satire?)

DAILY MAIL EXCLUSIVE!

Leading retailers have sparked outrage from consumers after they admitted meat was being sold in supermarkets which originated from living animals.

A huge debate was sparked recently when it emerged that 185 Subway outlets in the UK and Ireland had decided to sell meat from animals which had actually been alive before they were killed without informing their customers.

Several restaurant chains, including KFC, Domino’s Pizza, Nando’s and Pizza Express also sell meat which was alive – including chicken which they admitted had originated from the bodies of live chickens – in some or all of their stores.

And in a shocking revelation, the Daily Mail can reveal that approximately 100 per cent of New Zealand lamb in supermarkets comes from baby sheep which had been killed in abattoirs in New Zealand.

Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, Waitrose and Marks & Spencer also have been forced to admit that tinned tuna on sale in their…

The Cycle of Motherhood | Dorinda Duclos – Night Owl Poetry

A baby cries in the night

A hand gently touches her

A mother’s soothing voice

Comforting, wiping away the tears

A child cries in the night

A mother’s soothing voice

Quieting the nightmare

Comforting, chasing away the fears

A woman cries in the night

Her mother’s soothing voice

Calming and reassuring

Comforting, holding her near

A baby cries in the night

A mother’s soothing voice

A grandmother’s loving touch

As the cycle begins again
