    Fighting Commanism! 


    Therese Coffey tells health workers to ‘stop using Oxford comma

    ..

    Punctuation is not a topic much featured in my blog, but since it’s in the news back in The Old Country…

    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2022/09/15/therese-coffey-tells-nhs-staff-stop-using-oxford-comma/

    .. here we go.

    Living in a land where English is a foreign tongue….

    .

    .

    …but much used in the business world, and having a fairly wide social circle, many of whom I am seeing more of….

    .

    .

    … now that that the Chinese Virus has abated here and elsewhere, it happens, now and then…

    …some folks will ask me about odd grammatical quandaries they meet.

    My views align with Ms Coffey’s –

    -never put a comma before the conjunction ‘AND!’

    What do you think?

    Will Coffey End NHS Woke-Waste? 


    Here’s Truss’s new Secretary of State for Health   .

    • 0000,Therese Coffey

    New Health Secretary Therese Coffey has been quick to spell out her priorities.

    They are, she says, the A, B, C and D of the NHS – ambulance, backlogs, care, and doctors and dentists. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-62821889.amp

    And there’s a lot more on her intentions too.

    BUT..

    Not a word about the disgraceful ‘diversity’ waste, which her predecessors have allowed to soak up resources…

    .

    .

    …merely to appease whining uptight and maladjusted minorities.

    So I merely append a link to what we said already…

    New NHS Scandal! Where’s Mr. Barclay?

    …and ask, where’s Ms. Coffey?

    PS

    Going on her track record…

    Tell Theresa Coffey To Slap Her DWP Sickos DOWN! 

     …don’t hold yer breath.

    Or did she ultimately behave honourably in that transfreakery episode?

    I do miss news updates sometimes, but not often.

    Tell Theresa Coffey To Slap Her DWP Sickos DOWN! 


    I missed this sad tale of the latest state-sponsored anti-Christian intolerance in Britain when it happened…

    .

    ….

    ….but a very good piece in spiked.com a few days before year’s end alerted me… https://spiked-online.us18.list…so I went digging and found the BBC coverage of the Tory Government’s persecution of a certain Dr. Mackereth.

    The Department of Work and Pensions, run by Conservative ‘right-winger Therese Coffey MP…

    …witch-hunted him out of his job for his heinously offensive assertion that he’d refuse to refer to “any 6ft-tall bearded man” as “madam” following a conversation with a manager at an assessment centre..

    Clearly the DWP management is infested with sicko leftists…

    A lack of belief in transgenderism and conscientious objection to transgenderism in our judgment are incompatible with human dignity and conflict with the fundamental rights of others,” the judgement said.

    OO

    OO

    A DWP spokeswoman said: “We acted to protect claimants from behaviour that would have failed to treat them with dignity, so we welcome this ruling. We expect all assessors to approach their work sensitively.” 

    That reminds me of Coleridge’s line, ‘Yea, slimy things did crawl with legs, upon the slimy seas….
    =====

    Dr Mackereth is reported to be lodging an appeal…

    “I believe that I have to appeal in order to fight for the freedom of Christians to speak the truth. If they cannot, then freedom of speech has died in this country, with serious ramifications for the practise of medicine in the UK.”

    …but before that comes to pass, Therese Coffey, as Minister responsible, should intervene to restore decency, sanity, even, to the department.

    She should reverse the departmental stance in this case, reinstate the victim, identify the sickos who forced the good doctor out…

    .

    ….fire them, and order a total re-write of whatever rule-book led to this vicious victimisation of a plainly good man.

    Here’s her contact info.

    House of Commons
    London
    SW1A 0AA

    NB – this may not be the waste of time some cynics imagine!

    Had it been her predecessor at DWP, the unspeakable left-liberal Amber Rudd, any intercession would be in vain.

    That woman was and is a ghastly grimnasty.

    But I’ve taken a look at Ms. Coffey’s record.

    She has, we see, personally decent values – she voted against the redefinition of marriage!

    So surely she can have no time for the transfreak nonsense?

    BTW, her constituency is in Suffolk, so if you live up that way, you could drop by her MP surgeries…

    https://www.theresecoffey.co.uk/contacT

    …to ask her nicely to intervene. If she won’t, picket them.

    PS Thanks to one of our regular commenters, I located a petition!
