I have had no responses to my two previous e-mails, the first being sent 25th July, and the second the 3rd of August.
Update on our daughter Fiona - saw the oncologist last Tuesday with her partner, and we parents. Fiona has agreed to undergo chemotherapy. She is having preparatory blood tests etc, the insertion of a permanent IV line, and the start of chemotherapy in two weeks +. The kindly doctor and senior nurse were explicit - cure was not being presented, but hope encouraged, which our dear Fiona has, along with great courage.
I saw my tyre fitter friend yesterday, Derek Hopkins. He helped save me from a potentially serious road accident. I had had a rare puncture in my pick-up. The spare wheel was rusty from long disuse. In the few miles to his workshop, the wheel nuts had worked loose!
He was saved from likely death due to systemic micro-thromboses from the toxic junk your team developed because he was already on Warfarin. He had first suffered DVTs and PEs from a crushing injury of his chest when a combined harvester collapsed on his trunk years ago. He has suffered DVTs and PEs since - hence the prophylactic warfarin.
Read these please, central is my friend Derek Hopkins, and my surgical colleague Mohammad Iqbal Adil FRCS Ed FRCSI who has been excluded from his expert practice for 2 years plus - (the posting will be copied to the acting chairman of the GMC - the General Medical Council)
NHS Failing in Planned Chaos – 20-06-2022:Erasure of Teignmouth Hospital emblematic
Devon CC – Health and Social Care Scrutiny Committee – 21-06-2022
Set up to fail – when and who by? Rescue?
Post WW2 perception and will in an exhausted and bankrupt Britain. The ‘war spirit’ lasting. The healthy look after the ill. ‘Love thy neighbour’ - Mosaic law
Beveridge and Bevan. NHS opposed by the BMA and a majority of doctors. ‘Cap in hand’ to last.
Bevan saw it through. Its work massive and its triumphs certain. Fear of illness and death, and bankruptcy, through medical bills absent. Compare with the US - two thirds of those going bankrupt are through medical bills.
Key stages in the gradual and now precipitous fall into chaos, injury and possible death.
Dear Letters Editor,
I see that Mel Stride MP backs 'Boris' in sending two lots of missiles to the Ukraine - MDA last week, one with an 80 km reach.
Has he forgotten our war time leader, and the fight against fascists then? 'Jaw jaw is better than war'.
And does he not know or wish to take into account these facts.
The Minsk agreement thrashed out between Russia, the Ukraine, Germany and France in 2014 agreed that there should be autonomy for the provinces of Donetsk and Luhansk.
That this was quickly broken by Ukraine after the Maidan coup, when a democratically elected President was 'ousted'. It is recorded that about 14,000 persons - adults, children and soldiers in these two eastern provinces have been killed since 2014.
We are in a fight for civilization, and within that - for freedom of thought and expression, as well as the future of mankind. This most oppressive, even fascist action against fellow citizens, is emblematic. We must stand for them and for the freedoms Britain fought for in WW2.
Does my definition fit my description of the actions, and judgements made against Deanna Yeates and Michael Pendlebury? Details can be found here.
"The subjugation of the individual's will and freedom by an overweening state. Humanity withers, freedom of speech is stifled and the soul dies. Self preservation becomes a dominant drive. "
Guess why the Western Morning 'News' did not publish it.
Dear Letters Editor,
This as you know is a most important test of our mostly illusory democracy. I should be grateful for your publishing this letter below - from my heart, and as a patriot. I am greatly concerned by the lowering of this country.
Dear Letters Editor,
I am certain that many thousands of your readers will have been outraged by the treatment of this couple through our justice system as reported 12th April on page 8 of the WMN.
I first comment as a well trained and observant doctor first, and surgeon second, on the 'science' at the bottom of government responses to an epidemic of a novel and nasty virus. It proved vicious in the frail elderly and in those with so called 'co-morbidities' ie other chronic illnesses like gross obesity.
I note this e-mail from you at 10.09 last night. I have slept well on your prior response. Clearly your attention to your duties as clerk for 12 years to the Haccombe with Combe PC (HcC) goes well beyond the usual. Perhaps you regard your initial acceptance of my application to fill one of two long standing vacancies as of some importance to the function of this PC, and the perverse reversal since.
I am copying this quite widely. I know that although people generally do not like 'rocking the boat', there are citizens in the HcC parish who are very concerned with the doings of the HcC PC - over years. You know I have brought evidence of that to you as clerk since 2012. Bias against the general good is clear to a fair bystander. The response to my reporting of the vandalism regarding the restoration of an ancient buddle by me with paid labour for public good, by the new owner of Cow Field up Barcombe Lane, is the latest. The PC response is anodyne at least, and I would say firmly biased in general favour of wider, gross vandalism by him. There is photographic evidence of that on file - my disc and another, but the attaching key ones take too long in the sending by e-m.
It goes without saying that you are clerk, going back you say over 12 years, to a public authority and forum. I have suffered great distress, now shortly to be 82, as a result of the malicious intent to do with the Ancient Drove Track that borders my wood pasture of 18 acres on its west. And spent hundreds of hours writing in vain to you as clerk, as well as continuing to care for the track, often with paid labour. I have done this since about 1980, six years before I purchased this land from Martin Boyd. This as you know involved restoring the two buddles so it became a good foot and bridle path, rather than a deep V. That allowed older citizens to enjoy the nature in the banks, and the beauty of the trees. Sadly, the wide trampling by 4x4s which PC directly facilitated has contributed by introducing root disease into often majestic wild cherries/geans. The few that remain standing are now dead. You will also know that there are three extant crime numbers relating to this track, generated by myself. The most relevant to me is the criminal damage done to the ancient hedge bank I own, and care for. The erstwhile chairman, and present deputy chairman, Mr Tim Boarer, has driven his own vehicle up this beautiful track, and widened it at points with a mini-digger hired from him and paid for from public funds. ie HcC PC account.
