Mr Hinds
- James (11th Jan 2022 - 17:56:38)

What a surprise, Hinds voted against a bill to remove VAT on energy bills which would save ordinary people between £200-£600 on energy bills.

The Conservatives are failing us.

Re: Mr Hinds
- Paul Robinson (11th Jan 2022 - 18:56:35)

Correct me, but is this the same Damian Hinds that sprang to the defence of Owen Patterson when Boris Johnson gave his support. to the practice of taking money for lobbying for commercial companies?

The government does need to raise taxes to pay for education, health service, social care and everything else. VAT on energy costs at least has a green bias to it. I despise the current cheating, lying government but it would be better for poorer people to be given help with fuel costs rather than cutting taxes for everybody.I wonder how much proper taxes on Amazon would raise?

Re: Mr Hinds
- Pete (12th Jan 2022 - 09:05:04)

I have come to the conclusion that the top priority for Mr Hinds is to keep his head below the parapet to protect his own job and interests. How anyone in their right mind could still support this proven duplicitous liar is a mystery. I have questioned Mr Hinds several times on his support for (or lack of condemnation for) his parties upper echelons when they are clearly a bunch of self serving, lying hypocrites who are clearly not up to the job. I am well aware that politicians lie and always have done but never to this degree or so blatantly with the final insult being that even when they are caught out the just double down on the lies.

Re: Mr Hinds
- StephenS (12th Jan 2022 - 11:33:46)

I stopped voting Conservative several elections ago but judging by the results of the last local election, there are still plenty of people who think Mr Hinds and the Conservatives are doing a grand job.

Re: Mr Hinds
- I (12th Jan 2022 - 13:39:38)

I expect most of us that voted conservative last time voted for the lesser of two evils. To be honest, the last general election felt like having to choose between gonorrhoea or syphilis!

Re: Mr Hinds
- Leo (14th Jan 2022 - 23:35:15)

Mr Hinds has lost my Vote !. After 25 years as a Conservative voter I'm not supporting Liberal democrats! How Mr Hinds can still offer support for the clown of a prime minsters we have is unjustifiable. My mother died of Covid and couldn't even hold her hand and say goodbye. Meanwhile parties throughout government.

Re: Mr Hinds
- Mary (16th Jan 2022 - 21:02:38)

We all know Boris is a rule breaker!.
But we elected him with the fact he is a selfish liar!.
I voted BORIS to get brexit done
But with rising prices
I'm voting Lib dem next time

Re: Mr Hinds
- Jess (17th Jan 2022 - 13:45:19)

LIBERAL DEMOCRATS!. Wish but East Hampshire will always vote Conservatives sadly.

Re: Mr Hinds
- I (17th Jan 2022 - 14:00:26)

LIBERAL DEMOCRATS- just vegan socialists! Don’t waste your vote!

Re: Mr Hinds
- Helen (17th Jan 2022 - 17:24:30)

I did warn a lot of people that brexit would lead to a lot of price increases which are going to get worse still. Of course this is not all down to brexit but a lot of staff shortages and problems are due to brexit.

Re: Mr Hinds
- Dave (17th Jan 2022 - 19:39:33)

Damian Hinds has defended the indefensible!. He didn't talk for the people he represents but instead tries saving Boris's arse!. I worked for the ambulance service on the first wave and the government simply was unprepared. Guildlines on PPE changed 5 times a day depending on shortages. Lack of clarity on testing. While I was out saving lives Downing Street partying!. An NHS colleague of mine called out Damian Hinds and look at us in the eye and try to defend his Boss. He was ignored. I will vote for whatever political party kicks Damian Hinds out of power. Because he defended that vile man while I get flashbacks with the heartbreak I saw. #LockupBoris #ToireslostmyVote

Re: Mr Hinds
- Donna (17th Jan 2022 - 19:51:58)

We should support Boris and downing Street team. Alcohol addiction is serious health condition. Force them out of Goverment and offer Rehab. Now I know why we have largest death toll in Europe as Britians been ran by Alcoholics.

Re: Mr Hinds
- I (18th Jan 2022 - 08:16:27)

Dave, you’re mixing two separate issues. I quite agree that government parties an absolute disgrace and there should be meaningful repercussions for all that broke the rules.

However with regard to the lack of preparation and chaos when the pandemic first broke out of course there was a lack of readiness. Not just in government but across society, business and even the medical establishment. No one foresaw the health crisis and actually, despite the chaos most furlough ensured that many did not suffer financially. I’m pretty sure all political parties would have struggled in March 2020

Re: Mr Hinds
- passfield resident (18th Jan 2022 - 11:36:42)

The government conducted a preparedness excercise/study in recent years which made recommendations for stockpiling PPE (for example) for this kind of situation. The government also knew that large parts of it's PPE stock were past their use-by dates. It chose to ignore both . Now the government has decided to announce right wing initiaves on taking the BBC license fee away and using the armed forces to tackle illegal immigration. Both these announcements have been made now to distract attention from the awful publicity from Boris Johnson's latest bout of lying (which isn't new-he was known to be untrustworthy-even for a politician-when he was a journalist and when he was Mayor of London)

Re: Mr Hinds
- er (18th Jan 2022 - 12:53:11)

If the Tories have done for themselves over a Gin and Tonic, they will only have themselves to blame, time will tell.

But bear in mind that in politics, I have come to believe (with my great age) that you have a choice between one lot of greedy narcissistic buffoons or another lot of the greedy narcissistic buffoons, the tune is different but they are leading us on the same merry dance.

I think this Tory lot are generally a bit tactless, but they handled an impossible crisis as well as or better than most other governments (our economy is thriving, we kept our place, just, among the top 5 (or maybe 6th now) Rich Nations-- cue shouts of shame from the left!). Wages are rising, house prices are stable, we have full employment. These are all plusses. The drinks thing is plain stupid and a real let down, a gift to the gleeful but otherwise floundering left, who can now pull shocked, agonised facial expressions (which lefties do so well) on TV whilst being thankful it's not them being idiots for once!

Right now left or even far left ideology can sound enticing, but don't forget the 70s, The Winter of Discontent and Baron James Callaghan "Crisis, What Crisis?", or strikes, freezing cold winters, no heating or power for week after week, no lights, bins unemptied FOR MONTHS, streets piled high with rubbish you couldn't drive down anymore (it just creeps up on you, and up and up!).

Remember Arthur Scargill, Foot, Kinnock, 15% interest rates on mortgages (£300 per week interest 35 years ago on a £100k mortgage when average salaries were around £200 or less. Or Tony Blair's 'New Labour' government (weapon of mass deception?), Gordon Brown, Corbyn etc, political correctness, 'positive discrimination', which somehow led to our reading about claims of anti Jewish prejudice in the socialist left, how does everything somehow lead in circles with different players, unless ideology is actually just a temporary narrative to control the political moment?. Perhaps less mentioned, but happening now, controversial Critical Race Theory taught to students in Universities in the US and now apparently being taught here too, (white students, do you symbolise the guilt of your allotted race, vote socialism to cleanse yourself. Anyone who has actually done the course kindly feel free to correct my ignorance, hopefully!)

Mind you much of this may actually be happening on the Tory watch, politics has become so ideologically fluid, ultimately they all talk the same inspiring, happy, equal, wealthy but not too rich, green global future for all of those young enough not to remember much before.

So we all move left or right again on the swaying boat and hope for a better outcome, or maybe just something different from those old folk over 50 or is it 40 who know nothing, but who were just the same as us once!

Support who you want, I'll stick with the Tories for now, the economy is bigger than a very foolish garden meeting.

PS all the above are just the opinions of an old person who still laughs at some pre 2000 jokes, and realises many, if not all of us have suffered a lot in this outbreak, my apologies!

Re: Mr Hinds
- Jay (18th Jan 2022 - 18:46:49)

With the increase in energy prices, its also worth noting that the energy companies are also increasing our Daily Standing Charge.

Maybe the Government should tell them to leave it as is, rather than burden consumers with this double whammy increase?

To give an example, British Gas have increased our daily standing charges as follows;

- Electricity Standing Charge from 16.36p to 23.56p (+ 44%)
- Gas Standing Charge from 13.228p to 17.083p (+29%)


Re: Mr Hinds
- M (19th Jan 2022 - 08:07:29)

ER.......what a great refreshing and totally correct post!

Fully agree with your points and you're right that I don't think anyone else could have done a better compromise job over the last 2 years regarding covid, NHS and the economy.

Government drinks in Downing Street (organised by civil servants and not ministers) pale into insiginficance compared to the overall loss in all aspects to society. It shouldn't of happened but how many other people got together with others over the last 2 years when they shouldn't of?

Let's not also forget that Sir Kier Starmer has been pictured with a drink in hand and no mask at an indoor event at the same time, but the media and "chip on his sholder" Dominic Cummings are brushing that under the carpet.

Sometimes it's "better the devil you know"!!!

Re: Mr Hinds
- Bernard (19th Jan 2022 - 11:50:38)

A report on the news is that inflation is the worst it has been for 30 years at 5.5%. Remarks about pay being good- it will not be long before higher utility bills kick in and people will really struggle. Also a lot of vacancies are not being filled despite there being plenty of unemployed people around.

Re: Mr Hinds
- D (19th Jan 2022 - 15:19:24)

Getting back to James' issue of the proposed removal of VAT on energy bills. I believe it is 5% and based on James' figures (£600 in vat) there are "ordinary people" paying £12,000 per year for their gas and leccy. Wow!

Re: Mr Hinds
- Peter (19th Jan 2022 - 19:55:13)

After watching PMQs today only way I will vote Conservative again if led by David Davies!. Only one on the blue side with a backbone that talks for the people of United Kingdom. Resign Boris !

Re: Mr Hinds
- Dave (19th Jan 2022 - 20:17:59)

The Conservative Party are a group of privileged cowards with no honesty or integrity and an embarrassment to the UK.

Re: Mr Hinds
- Paul Robinson (20th Jan 2022 - 10:17:13)

I recall that when he was our Brexit Negotiator, the Right Honourable David Davies once pitched up for meeting with Michel Barnier having forgotten to bring his notes and had to borrow pen!

He was once described by the Dis-honourable Dominic Cummings as "thick as mince, as lazy as a toad and as vain as Narcissus".

Paul Robinson

Re: Mr Hinds
- James (21st Jan 2022 - 18:35:29)


I refer you to the hansard: "Our plan would save households £200 from their bills, and up to £600 in total for those who need it most."

Re: Mr Hinds
- D (21st Jan 2022 - 19:58:37)

James, I refer you to simple mathematics, you stated that £600 is the amount some people pay a year in vat on their gas/electric. Vat on energy is 5%, so if someone is paying £600 a year in vat on their gas/electric then their total bill per annum is £12,000. Hard to believe.

Re: Mr Hinds
- Ethan (22nd Jan 2022 - 00:19:24)

I worked with Boris when he was Mayor of London!. When I was working alongside a think-tank. Boris has no Interest in regular folk and purley a career polician. He lacks compassion and understanding of lower classes within society. His family has always had money to fall back on. When I was working with him he lacked knowledge and most definitely did not do his research that should of been expected by the role he was conducting. He cannot accept criticism and will use others to take responsibility for his actions. Doesn't seem to had changed much. I do wonder why anyone voted for this man!. We all know he's corrupt , exactly how we knew he wasn't fit to lead London.

Re: Mr Hinds
- Joe (22nd Jan 2022 - 06:44:00)

D, nowhere does James say “ per year”. It is maybe over 10 years, but there is no specific time mentioned. Perhaps the bills will go up that much who knows?

Re: Mr Hinds
- D (22nd Jan 2022 - 08:15:52)

Joe, such things are usually calculated per annum. A £600 saving over ten years you say? I make that about 16 pence a day. As one of James' "ordinary people" I think I can manage without that.

Re: Mr Hinds
- J (22nd Jan 2022 - 16:52:19)

Well done Boris our Prime minister. You've done great in our country in a short time. It's a shame that there are so many media lefties and lefty opposition parties that are trying to ruin you and your great achievements. But you always succeed despite yet another witch hunt and they will not stop. While they do their worst, you do your best that's why you are the best person to lead this country. Whoever Votes Labour cannot claim to be truly British!. We would still be controlled by the EU dictatorship. No one has worked as hard as the primeminster and we should forgive him for the downing Street parties. Ethan clearly is a typical Leftie because Boris is supporting the NHS with new hospitals and extra funding. Kier Starmer protects terrorist & BBC Brainwashing.

God bless Boris & Conservative party

Re: Mr Hinds
- Ethan (22nd Jan 2022 - 19:01:01)

Boris johnsons actions can not be justified!. NHS workers couldn't have a party with wine & cheese. Voting Labour doesn't make you any less British & your new right wing ideology is dangerous. United Kingdom was a democracy but seems like we are heading into a Dictatorship. MPs being blackmailed if they don't agree with Boris?. Your comments are appalling and should not judge anyone's Freedom to vote for there preference political party. I was a Conservative voter till Boris took over because I knew from previous experiences that he doesn't take his job seriously. Boris and his new far right ideology harms this nation.

Re: Mr Hinds
- Peter (22nd Jan 2022 - 20:08:56)

Boris has destroyed the foundations the Conservative party had stood for. Mr Hinds is just as mad for trying to protect this man. Bye bye Boris

Re: Mr Hinds
- James (22nd Jan 2022 - 20:17:31)


You do realise that Boris has broken numerous laws. Has lied to the public, to parliament and also to the queen.

There was literally a party on the eve of Prince Phillips funeral, if that isn't disrespectful enough to the queen then I don't know what is.

The Tories aren't building that many hospitals, many of them are just refurbishments which haven't even begun yet!

Boris is a public embarrassment and should be removed from office.

Many Tories also want him out of office, including MPs and lifelong tory voters.

Re: Mr Hinds
- D (23rd Jan 2022 - 08:11:44)

Ethan, are you telling us government think tanks are influenced by the likes of people whom post on social media? No wonder the country is in such a mess. I thought government think tanks and the like consisted of clever people. Maybe you can clarify James' original post;- will "ordinary people" be saving between £200 and £600 over a year, ten years or what? Even James can't give clarity on his own sensationalistic claims. Or is it as someone else on this thread said:- "who knows?"

Re: Mr Hinds
- Ethan (23rd Jan 2022 - 12:39:14)

D so your saying anyone who works for a think-tank cannot express there views on the primeminster?. Why can I not express my views on social media?. Last time I checked freedom of speech is part of Foundations that democracy is built!. I don't work for the government but instead works for a organisation that protects the rights people like yourself criticise. Your comments on calling me dumb is awfully offensive and it's clear you have no experience yourself within a political climate. I was one of those dumb inviduals that forced the government to act on china's breach on the joint British sino declaration and to protect thousands of BNO Hong kongers with safe passage to Britian. What have you done with yourself that has helped save thousands of people?.

Re: Mr Hinds
- Optimistic (23rd Jan 2022 - 14:03:55)

Funny old world every body moaning about the government. But look at history Mr Blair turned out to be the biggest liar out made a fortune and has now been made a SIR . There hasn’t been a good government except the THATCHER years and even that went wrong in the end. Boris with all his faults has done a good job getting us out of the EU he waves the flag and has got the economy moving. He also did a very good job with the pandemic making the EU look silly. I can’t see anyone in any party to take his place. God forgive us STARMER or worse still the return of comrade Corbyn . I think the Conservative party needs to rally round the PM and start to run the country because we are on the up and they must not spoil it now. BORIS promotes Great Britain and that is a good thing because we need to trade with the WORLD.

Re: Mr Hinds
- D (23rd Jan 2022 - 14:15:15)

Ethan, I spent years working for the N.H.S. Is that enough?

Re: Mr Hinds
- Jacob (23rd Jan 2022 - 15:57:15)

Boris and his chums need to go. They are only out to feather their own nest. He lied all the way through Brexit, like his lying to everyone again. If one of my workers, had told lies like he has I would have shown him/her the door.

Even Ant & Dec have called him out on it..............

Re: Mr Hinds
- James (23rd Jan 2022 - 18:12:34)


Given your previous comments on other threads I will be very surprised if you were employed with the NHS especially when it comes to Safeguarding.

The Hansard says £200-600, I strongly recommend you read it for further information.

Re: Mr Hinds
- E (23rd Jan 2022 - 20:20:38)

I support Boris,after everything he has been through I think he deserves the old party.

Re: Mr Hinds
- Pete (24th Jan 2022 - 13:03:14)

optimistic - You need to have a look at a few international news sites. The world thinks we have become a laughing stock.

Re: Mr Hinds
- Optimistic (24th Jan 2022 - 13:57:43)

Pete think you have it wrong a GERMAN JOURNALIST said BORIS was doing a fantastic job showing the EU the way. Could not understand why the British public were against him. He said BORIS was a. Leader with vision for the future not like the EU leaders working in the past. He’s the best PM for a long time it’s time the snow flakes in the Conservative party grow up and start working together for the country.

Re: Mr Hinds
- passfield resident (24th Jan 2022 - 16:00:59)

Optimistic-enjoy BORIS while you can. He won't be PRIME MINISTER going into the next ELECTION (I could get into this random capital letters thing)

Re: Mr Hinds
- D (24th Jan 2022 - 18:57:53)

James, I am merely trying to establish how you arrived at the figures you quoted at the start of this thread as an excuse to attack your member of parliament. You published the information after all, if you cannot explain the figures maybe you shouldn't have published them. You could have just asked Mr. Hinds himself at his next surgery of course. Anyone paying £600 a year for their 5% vat on their energy really can't call themselves poor. If, as Joe suggests, it might be over ten years equating to about 16p a day, then it's not really a problem at all, even for "ordinary people" as you put it.

Re: Mr Hinds
- James (24th Jan 2022 - 20:46:48)


I did not make these figures, if you read the hansard you will be able to understand a bit more about where these figures come from instead of arguing as per usual.

On another note Boris now had a party of around 30 people during restrictions on his birthday... what a surprise!

Re: Mr Hinds
- Pete (25th Jan 2022 - 07:25:12)

Hello, yet another diversion from the original issue.

Re: Mr Hinds
- Elaine (25th Jan 2022 - 12:03:06)

Boris johnson is the best prime minister since Churchill, he led this country through its darkest days. We should remember who gave the public the strength to sacrifice our daily lives. Can't believe Boris is under a criminal investigation just because he took a well deserved break with a glass of wine . Let's just be supportive guys and may god protect our leader through this difficult time.

God bless Boris 🙌 🙏 ❤

Re: Mr Hinds
- Optimistic (25th Jan 2022 - 12:48:08)

Well said Elaine about time the British public woke up he’s doing a good job. There is no one in any party that can do better they all had drinks and party’s get over it. What is the matter with are British public we are doing well liz truss is about the only one that could take over she seems to have the get up and go doing trade deals all over the world. It’s time the government closed ranks and supported our PM let’s get on and get this country firing on all cylinders at the moment we are showing the EU the way now let’s go forward and trade with the world.

Re: Mr Hinds
- Jen (25th Jan 2022 - 13:12:40)

@Optimistic - I assume you are referring to the article in the Daily Mail (that esteemed publication renowned for its high quality output!) by a certain Alexander von Schoenburg. Herr Schoenburg can hardly be deemed representative of German public opinion, surely?!

@Elaine - I couldn't quite work out whether your post was intended to be taken seriously or whether it's sarcasm. Hopefully it's the latter!

I cannot understand how anyone could genuinely believe that Boris Johnson has been a good prime minister! My mind just boggles!

Re: Mr Hinds
- Elaine (25th Jan 2022 - 13:54:46)


Boris johnson has built this country to its full potential. We have a stronger NHS and stronger defence to deter Russian aggression. The country's economy is booming with more money your pockets so why are you moaning?. Boris gets things done and thanks to this primeminster we have fastest growing G7 economy. Boris is a honest primeminster and I think he should be exempted from the law like the Queen. Your just a typical leftie who's destroying this great nation!. I think Labour and left wing should be forced to close there policial parties. I'm happy with Boris..... Labour is only for the Lower class of this country that can't be bothered to get a decent job. Simples work hard and get a decent education and stop relying on my Taxes to pay for you

Re: Mr Hinds
- Pete (25th Jan 2022 - 14:47:37)

Elaine- Are you serious. The NHS is on its knees after having its funds syphoned off by your idols, as for closing political parties well what can I say Nazi Germany springs to mind. Who do you think empties your bins, sweeps your streets, unblocks your sewers when they are clogged I will tell you who, the working class that you despise so much. I really do hope your post is a bit of trolling as opposed to what you and others really think as if not I despair at the intelligence and mental state of some members of our society. You Madame are a perfect example of everything that is wrong with this country.

Re: Mr Hinds
- Elaine (25th Jan 2022 - 15:50:38)

Labour are a national disgrace while the Conservatives are delivering on the publics priorities. I am not moaning about the NHS Staff but people moan about the benefit system when I believe we pay enough money to claimments. If labour had there way this country would waste Billions on handouts. And our glorious leader should be able to do his job without labour interfering in tick and tac. Conservatives have taken control of our borders and protected millions of Jobs. I do think Boris should be free to do his job and be exempted from prosecution because we will not have another prime minister as successful as Boris.

Re: Mr Hinds

Well done Elaine, you can real in the likes of Pete now. Quite sad that Irony is now lost on so many

Re: Mr Hinds
- Pete (25th Jan 2022 - 16:28:28)

Dave- Hence the question are you serious and the reference to trolling. After the second post it is clear that is a no. Please don't assume that everyone is of a lower intelligence than yourself. In this polarised society it is increasingly difficult to weed out what is actual thought and what is Irony.

Re: Mr Hinds

Ok so now I get it, turns out Elaine is Damian's alter ego.

Re: Mr Hinds
- D (25th Jan 2022 - 17:07:19)

James, as you are unable to answer my questions concerning the information you published it wouldn't be unreasonable to say you don't know what you're talking about. 😆

Re: Mr Hinds
- Elaine (25th Jan 2022 - 17:15:40)

I am most definitely real thank you 😊

I've given my opinion which I'm free to do. I believe Boris is the only person who can run this country from the ruins labour left it.

Re: Mr Hinds
- James (25th Jan 2022 - 18:47:36)

D, I have referred you to the source, if you want more information go there, it's not my responsibility to take you through it all, I have explained multiple times where you can find more information.

What was your role in the NHS D?

Re: Mr Hinds
- Pete (25th Jan 2022 - 19:39:06)

There you go Dave turns out no irony involved.
Elaine- Of course you are entitled to your misguided and misinformed opinion but to label anyone working class as you did is just narrow minded and quite frankly pathetic.

Re: Mr Hinds
- D (25th Jan 2022 - 19:40:55)

James, you earlier expressed doubt over my work so I'm not going to discuss my employment history with you if you are going to question my integrity. With your attitude you won't keep a job for five minutes.

Re: Mr Hinds
- Donna (25th Jan 2022 - 20:30:09)

Prime minister will resign tomorrow, we can't have a dictatorship and one rule for one government. Gobsmacked by some of these extremism right wing comments..... shame on you ! We don't live in North Korea ffs 🙄

Re: Mr Hinds
- Elaine (25th Jan 2022 - 21:23:57)


My Parents had been working class but they never had benefit Handouts. And Donna our Leader isn't going anywhere because he is a fighter. We should be greatful for the great work this Government has achieved. Jacob Rees mogg even admitted that the government is going strength to strength. Boris johnson is our glorious leader and you should be honoured to have such a outstanding and strong leader to protect your interests. I believe we should stop this witch-hunt and fake news because Boris is honest and his premiership has been integral and honoured throughout. We have always supported the Conservative party in East Hampshire because we share there principles of equality ,law and order.

Re: Mr Hinds

Hahaha! 🤣🤣🤣
"Elaine", you're very naughty, winding everyone up. You crack me up! This thread is hilarious! It reminds of The Day Today, that great spoof news programme that was the brainchild of Armando Ianucci back in the '90s - it was the programme that launched Alan Partridge as a persona.
Priceless! 🤣

Re: Mr Hinds
- Bernard (25th Jan 2022 - 22:16:17)

Re: Mr Hinds
- Anon (25th Jan 2022 - 22:21:03)

James didn’t ask for your employment history just your role in the NHS.Why is that such a problem for you to answer.
If you are stating you worked in the NHS it’s not too difficult is it,if we are to believe you.
On other posts on this site you say you have had many jobs,I wonder why that is.
Didn’t last too long perhaps!

Re: Mr Hinds
- D (25th Jan 2022 - 22:53:38)

As I have already stated, Anan, James has already indicated that he doesn't believe I ever worked for the NHS. So it is not unreasonable to assume any further discussion on the matter would result in the same negative response. "Many jobs"? Do show me where. I think everyone goes through several jobs before settling into something long term.

Thank you for your concern about my employment but I am employed doing a job I love. P.S. My colleagues appreciate the effort I put into making my collleagues (and my) job easier. Through Active Workplace Monitoring I have been praised multiple times throughout my employment.

You say you were in the NHS yet can't give a job role? With your previous comments on other theads I struggle to believe you! Especially as I said earlier when it comes to safeguarding.

The NHS is being ruined by the Tories and Boris and our own MP is allowing it to happen! The NHS is literally crumbling right in front of us.

Asking for a specific role is not unreasonable.

Anon, your style and manner of writing is identical to that of "Susan" and "Maz". Suspiciously identical.

Bernard- Not winding me up in fact it plays rather well. If Elaine wants to keep highlighting the ridiculous mindset of a section of society that are clearly deluded (whether the poster believe what they are writing or not) I will keep pointing out that it is a ridiculous mindset. Job done. I must admit though I can't make up my mind if it's for real or not.

“All of my jobs”,this is reasonable to imply many jobs.
I for one are not of the opinion that these jobs were in the NHS,or as you put it N.H.S.
Anyone who has / does work there does not write in that style,neither is it conveyed to the public in that style.

It was a reasonable question from James when he asked your role,one which you have gone to a great length not to answer.
Something to hide perhaps or just untrue.

Well this thread has gone of subject never mind. Just to say everyone has their options we must respect that. As regards to my posts I for one look at history when I vote even in local elections. I vote for the candidates that put the country first whatever the party. We need people in power that wave the flag and don’t take any nonsense from anyone. Back in the seventy’s when I had my own business the unions started to try and run the country they blacked none union companies no deliveries. Then the miner’s strike brought the country to its knees in came Mrs Thatcher a leader the country went from strength to strength until she got to old. In came Labour Mr Blair turns out he lied his way though his time left the country in ruins. In comes Conservative’s again tried coalition’s no good Cameron take’s the plunge referendum the BRITISH people vote out. Cameron out in comes may very weak PM . So we end up with Boris he gets the job done no more EU .The pandemic strikes he steel’s a March on the EU much to their annoyance. So he’s done a good job so far but as usual some people are trying to bring him down because he had a drink and a piece of birthday cake the mind boggles. We need a PM to bang the BRITISH drum and he’s just doing that . Germany are worried sick that we are going to stop buying their cars and their economy will go down the pan . The FRENCH people want to trade with us and are fed up with MR MACRON and his childish ways I’m afraid the EU is falling apart. In the meantime we are forging ahead not borrowing as much by 13 billion. More money in our pockets more jobs people spending more on their homes and cars. If any other party could do this I would vote for them but just look at history. One last funny thing when you ask a German french or any other countryman who they are they say German French ect but when we say British some in this country throw a wobbly and say no no we are European funny old thing.

I have to say that reading "optimistic's" post reminded me of some of the interviews with those die hard, head in the sand Trump supporters just before the USA elections.

Re: Mr Hinds
- D (26th Jan 2022 - 15:47:04)

Anon, I did indeed say "all my jobs", not "many jobs". "All my jobs" could be as little as three.

N.H.S. is an abbreviation, not a word. Therefore it is correct to put a full stop after each letter when written in a letter or email. You are thinking of the N.H.S. corporate logo which does indeed lack the full stops, but it is a logo.

Given the constant warnings we hear about being careful what information we disclose about ourselves online, I am surprised you and James are trying to find information about my employment. Not a thing I'd ever do, you draw what silly conclusions you want.

You are not the "Anon" who usually posts on this website. That person's written English is excellent, yours isn't. You have the same characteristics as Maz, Susie and Susan, reference:-

"Lloyds Bank, last bank in town" 17/09/20
"Parking for Passfield Stores" 02/04/21
"Covid19 Worldwide Epidemic" 12/10/21.

All three of these names have the same characteristics of leaving no space before the next sentence, starting the next sentence with a lower case letter, and setting out their writing range left as if writing a shopping list. There is also the same argumentative, aggressive, vindictive manner remeniscent of Waynetta Slob on a drunken hen night.

Good day Maz, Susan, Susie, Anon or whatever you are calling yourself today.

Re: Mr Hinds

Glad you liked it DAVE . Looking at some of the posts I think you could say a great many do have their heads in the sand. They just will not except the country is doing well no matter how good it is anything just to oust the conservatives. No one has suggested any one to take his place or what party would do better. As I said if someone or party comes along to take this country forward into the future and get us up and prosperous again better than BORIS then I will vote for them. At the moment I can’t see any one in any party with enough courage to do this apart from BORIS.That’s only my opinion so don’t get your knickers in a twist DAVE.

Re: Mr Hinds
- James (26th Jan 2022 - 18:14:53)


I asked for your old role in the NHS, a organisation that employs thousands of people, giving your EX-role isn't going to reveal any personal information about yourself.

The NHS has been ruined by the Tories
Public Transport continues to worsen
Education continues to get worse
Police forces are stretched
and budgets are being cut.
Yet after all of this, the friends of the tories get the money.

The government are going ahead with the National Insurance increase, this year people are going to struggle a lot more.

Update, D is alive, they posted on another thread. What job did you have D in the NHS?

Re: Mr Hinds
- Ian (30th Jan 2022 - 20:38:19)

James, tough times for the whole country and tough unpopular decisions need to be made to get the public finances back into shape. This pandemic along with Brexit (which the majority voted for) has put unprecedented peacetime strains on national finances and the burden is going to be intense. It is going to mean we are ALL going to feel the pinch but we are all going to have to cut back ( a new concept for many youngsters). Less eating out, less booze, less fags, perhaps ditch Netflix or cut back on the sky package. Occasionally say no to the kids demands. Some sections of society are going to need more help undoubtedly but there are an awful lot that will be claiming poverty without any desire to cut back to meet these challenging times. (And taxing the job makers until the squeak will not work, ask Dennis Healey)

Re: Mr Hinds
- James (30th Jan 2022 - 21:38:19)


The government finances can't be that bad if Truss is chartering a plane, Sunak has written off 4 billion from fraudsters and many more examples. They are focused on making the poorer, poorer.

Re: Mr Hinds
- Ian (31st Jan 2022 - 07:40:34)

James, why an earth would the government want to make the poor poorer. Explain to us their political motivation and benefit for such a deliberate policy!

Re: Mr Hinds
- Anon (2nd Feb 2022 - 11:23:46)

In my time on this earth I have seen countless government's come and go, this lot with the buffoon of a PM are simply the worst of the worst. There are many reasons, too many to state, but I'll leave you with just one, nearly £3,000,000,000, yes that's nearly 3 billion!!! of PPE which they bought which has to be discarded because it is unusable. No doubt this was sanctioned to one of the many new "companies" that was set up just for the purpose of gaining a quick profit. You couldn't make it up.

Re: Mr Hinds
- Pete (2nd Feb 2022 - 12:08:54)

Ian- Why, because the poorer the person generally the poorer the education, the poorer the education the less engaged in politics people tend to be and the less likely to vote. As we all know its the poorer people who tend NOT to vote Conservative.

Re: Mr Hinds
- Em (2nd Feb 2022 - 12:44:14)

Anon as a war baby been around a fair time. Boris got us out of the awful EU something Mrs May couldn’t do . He handled the pandemic better than the EU ok mistakes were made but hang on the Whitehall lot had most to do with that you can not put it all on the PM . We are now forging ahead best economy in Europe and getting better more jobs more industry’s starting up . I could go on but it seems people have very short memories Tony Blair comes to mind call me Dave as well. A saying you learn by your mistakes he’s learning not to trust anyone around him Dominic Cummins and a few more.that want to put the knife in its time the Conservative MPs backed their PM or they will be on the other side of the House of Commons and then the country WILL be in BIG TROUBLE.As for party’s and drinks WHAT a FARCE all the MPs and other PARTYS had them so let’s get on running the country.

Re: Mr Hinds

@Pete, except at the last election where they showed they had had enough of Labour BS (and Labour still full of BS)

Re: Mr Hinds
- Mee (2nd Feb 2022 - 23:17:53)

I may be wrong but the sacrifices that you list because of Brexit were never mentioned by Boris and the Brexiteers. It was going to be the land of milk and honey. Now you say the price of Brexit means we must cut back and make do. I feel sad for our children that can no longer enjoy freely the diversity of Europe.

GB is now such a small island with nothing more than false dreams of greatness. Mostly due to a failed Brexit agreement. Covid peeled back the scab to expose the wound. Hey ho.

Re: Mr Hinds
- Pete (3rd Feb 2022 - 09:23:04)

Re: Mr Hinds

If we were still in the EU we would be paying millions into their coffers for them to waist on moving house every month millions spent moving from one head quarters to another very sensible thank god we are out. We are now showing them better economy less jobless more business coming to UK more trade deals around the world this country is on the up. Free trade was the only thing we signed up for not to be ruled by a bunch of idiots and a childish French President.

Re: Mr Hinds
- ian (3rd Feb 2022 - 10:22:34)

@Mee - where do I say that the Brexiteers didn't mention the cost of Brexit? Off course they didn't, the whole Leave campaign was based around lies. That doesn't alter the fact we now all have to pay for it, ironically including those numpties (many Labour supporters who then subsequently voted for Boris) who voted Leave!

Combined with the cost of Covid, we have hit the Perfect Storm. But hey, so what, we have blue passports now!

Re: Mr Hinds
- ian (3rd Feb 2022 - 10:47:31)

@Peter, in part you are right on Brexit but many also could not vote for a Marxist like Corbyn - Labour (as it periodically does) made itself unelectable to the working man and woman.
