'Sending him abroad to a country where he has nobody is effectively sentencing him to death.'
CarolineJMolloyIf #blacklivesmatter this deportation must be stopped. Severely autistic young man Osime Brown, given 5 yrs for stealing a mobile phone under “joint enterprise” law, extra punishment for protesting innocence on FB, to be sent to country he left aged 4
Why have US tech firms got ‘unprecedented’ access to our health data? Sign up to demand transparency.
CarolineJMolloyPerhaps if the government released details of the privatised test track and trace contracts and what these firms are getting out of it, it might help build trust in the system ... or, depending on what’s in them, possibly not?! Either way we need to know
Employees told to consult YouTube for advice on how to deal with a bereaved person
CarolineJMolloyGiven we’re gonna depend on contact tracing to have any chance at normality, the shambolic uselessness of these outsourced firms’ training, recruitment, & whole approach is terrifying.
Technophile politicians and tech companies are making big promises. But the broader impact of the digital transformation of our health and public services has been too little examined.
CarolineJMolloySo it was perhaps not the *best* week to publish my thoughts on the pitfalls of remote/digital healthcare & the importance of face to face connections 😷😬... but this is still the issue anyone who cares about public services needs to get their head round
The forms do not have a box saying I’m on universal credit to tick, and I’m not prepared to lie
CarolineJMolloyDisgracefully, 6 years into the roll out of universal credit, people on it still have no way to legitimately claim the free prescriptions they’re entitled to. Will you pull your finger out @NHSBSA (& your “partners”, including Capita)?
British officials dodged invitations to exclude the NHS from a US-UK trade deal. Not surprising, given how much public money already goes to the US healthcare industry.
CarolineJMolloy"The NHS is on the table for US trade"
"Oh no it isn't"
"Oh yes it is"
Want something deeper than a panto debate?
Here's my latest investigation into what the trade talks really said, and who's already involved. It's pretty scary...
US private healthcare firm Optum has been ‘planting seeds’ in the English NHS for a decade, new research exposes.
CarolineJMolloyBoris Johnson tells us: “We are absolutely resolved. There will be no sale of the NHS, no privatisation.”
Look at the message US private healthcare firms are giving their investors, however, and a different story emerges.
This is explosive >
Liberal Democrats appear to be sending out variations on a stock response when questioned on the section 75 regulations. Yet their response appears to contradict both expert legal opinion and the Lords own scrutiny committee, not to mention...
CarolineJMolloyLibDems talked a lot of rubbish about why they backed Cameron’s NHS Act. Ironically, their fave defence was “it’s all the EU’s fault” (a demonstrably false claim, given Scotland’s v different trajectory). Yesterday’s abstention suggests theyve learned nowt
It’s chilling. From the Mail, The Times to the BBC and ITN, everyone is peddling Downing Street’s lies and smears. They’re turning their readers into dupes.
CarolineJMolloyThis piece by @OborneTweets was too hot for other outlets to handle - proud that @openDemocracy has published: names names on how press, BBC & ITV are so lazy/keen on privileged access to No.10, that they’re spreading disinformation & fake news in exchange
Workers in service sector industries such as hospitality already face precarious work, discrimination and lack of respect. The government's Brexit plans - whether Johnson Deal or No Deal - look set to make this a whole lot worse.
CarolineJMolloyCan we now have the overdue conversation about how the Brexiters' top priority is to shred workers rights? Whether via No Deal or some Johnson 'divergence' deal that allows Britain to become a bosses paradise & (even more of) a workers purgatory?
