    IMO BMA bosses are in bed with ATOS & the Government, you just cannot get any lower than that.

    The BMA is like the Labour Party.
    The membership are shouting out telling them what they ought to be doing, but the people at the top think they know better!

    We need people to help picket the PCS national conference in Brighton on 21 May. Let’s put pressure on PCS to work with us to fight the benefit barbarism destroying so many people’s lives, rather than set the police on those of us who campaign against the Welfare reforms. Please circulate this widely, and invite all your Facebook friends.

    here’s an interesting aside from Tanni grey-Thompson
    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/theroyalfamily/10052614/We-want-girls-to-inherit-titles-aristocrats-say.html


    Calling for an end to “gender discrimination”, they say daughters must no longer be excluded from inheriting their father’s title and estate.
    Among the signatories are Viscountess Linley, Lord Beaverbrook, Baroness Grey-Thompson …. ”

    kinda puts her ‘activism’ in some sort of perspective!!!”

    This is totally WRONG and you are on entirely the WRONG track John! The BMA will not get involved in anything deemed to be politically biased and this should be REMOVED from politics as it is exclusively about the welfare of patients.
    Regs 29 and 35 should be brought to the attention of the Royal College of General Practice [RCGP] and to all local General Practice Regional Committees [GPCs] and I’d be happy to write on behalf of BT if that can be agreed.
    PLEASE do not waste valuable if limited physical and financial resources protesting and taking action against the BMA. We’ve already established that people are exhausted, and broke, so let’s stop all this left wing constant will to ‘protest’ and begin responsible negotiations with people who are concerned with clinical excellence, patient welfare and GP integrity – and leave the BMA to count their paper clips.
    LOOK at the responses this type of incorrect assumption has generated… There is NO evidence at all that the BMA ‘are in bed with Atos’ – [wildthing] and these -ve reactions are emotional and not factual.
    As for this latest attack against Tanni G-T [jed] you couldn’t be more WRONG! Members of the HOL have many demands on their time and can’t campaign tirelessly for a Bill that’s been thrown out by the Government. Tanni is QUITE RIGHT if you bother to look into the facts. It is unrelated to ordinary people but is significant in the world of titled inheritance, so let’s please keep a sense of perspective.

      ‘This is totally WRONG and you are on entirely the WRONG track John! The BMA will not get involved in anything deemed to be politically biased and this should be REMOVED from politics as it is exclusively about the welfare of patients.’

      Mo, these decisions are made by committee. You are welcome to make comments but please do not be bombastic and patronising on this very public thread! You do not endear yourself by doing so. I am really QUITE annoyed with you! As if you are always RIGHT! Stop it!

    “Tanni is QUITE RIGHT if you bother to look into the facts. It is unrelated to ordinary people but is significant in the world of titled inheritance, so let’s please keep a sense of perspective.”

    quite, we plebs know our place – the matter of equality for all is very pertinent – however this still shouts some more equal than others – whilst some of us are dying or being made homeless or losing our finances or just being fucking fed up with the focus on the rich and elites of this fucking country – rich on the backs of the poor, entitled because they believe they are better – except if you read the Daily Mail where it’s the disabled and poor who are apparently so entitled they’re having everything taken off them as punishment. FFS.

    But when asked for a “yes” or “no” as to whether the BMA had put “a huge amount of effort” into calling for the WCA to be scrapped, he declined to provide a “yes” or “no” answer. well whot would you do when payed by the dwp yes they don’t like the system but wont answer to the government over it ,but we know it causes masses of work more for those doctors has for my house well if they any good parents half to my daughter half to my son unless this government decides if im in a home they charge me for it
