Government refuse to publish Brexit impact assessment. We need to ask why

Kitty S. Jones has really shown clearly how the present government are willing to do anything at all to keep the power it has stolen from our democratic country.
Through their continued lies, and obfuscation of the real truths of Brexit, they are heading this country to a real disaster of epic proportions – but they won’t be the ones to suffer through this, as they are rich and powerful, and so will be kept safe from the results – no, it will be the ordinary man and woman of the UK, the taxpayers, who will bear the brunt of it all! 😩

Politics and Insights

“Despite calls from over 150 MP’s and threats of legal action, the Department for Exiting The European Union are still refusing to publish Brexit impact assessments.” David Lammy.

Whitehall’s internal risk assessments of the impact of leaving the EU on various sectors of the UK economy have remained the private property of the government. The government’s reluctance to publish them has been one of the most controversial, and widely discussed, features of its approach to Brexit. Ministers say that publication would undermine their hand in the Brexit talks and could influence thedebate on Brexit if they were revealed. Circulation of the assessment is said to be highly restricted inside government because of its political sensitivity.

However the government’s authoritarian refusal to publish these documents is undemocratic, and it means the public remains in the dark about Whitehall’s internal analysis over the economic impact of Brexit. Not a government that’s fond of public scrutiny, transparency and accountability, then.

Achieved #NHS targets fall from 86% to ZERO% in #4ToryYears

We all know that the selling off of the NHS has been happening, and has been, really since Blaire’s regime – but seems to have been really speeded up this last few years or so, by the Tory Government – so why is nothing being done about it?
The NHS is a Nation-funded Health and Social Care system, so why haven’t we the right to put a stop to the Tory selling-off of all it’s component parts?
Why aren’t the Labour Party screaming and shouting out to the world about all the real figures, instead of keeping quiet every time a Tory lies about the real figures – or at least start doing something to put a stop to it all?
Is our government so far above the Law that absolutely nothing can be done to call a halt to it all?

The SKWAWKBOX

The Tories like to claim that they’re protecting the NHS and increasing its funding. They lie – in spite of being regularly rebuked by the UKSA (UK Statistics Authority) for doing so. The lie has been definitively exposed today by a revelation about the English NHS’ performance against ‘key targets’.

‘Shocking’ doesn’t even come close.

The latest data portray the near-collapse of the NHS – especially in England – under the weight of underfunding and unremedied staff shortages combined with completely-predictable demand.

Performance against key targets, in cancer care, Accident and Emergency and planned operations, in 2012/13 was eighty-six percent – which was already seriously short of the 95% target. Four years later in 2016/17, the most recent complete performance year – it had fallen to zero percent:
