The Uyghurs need more than a toothless tribunal.

Whilst it is commendable of the United Kingdom Government that they are having a Tribunal into the human rights abuses committed by China, is there anything in this that will make them stop committing the rapes, the murders, the slavery and the intended genocide of a group of people all based on the fact they are Muslim?

The tribunal based in London are listening to the testimonies of those who have had this terror inflicted on them, and whilst it is something the world need to hear, there is also the need to act on this and force the Chinese to stop it. I fear however that nothing will be done….it never is.

The forcing of sterilisation is a human rights crime.

The raping of Uyghur women in a bid to outbreed the people is a human rights crime.

The forced abortion of Uyghur women is a human rights crime.

The forced labour of Uyghurs is a human rights crime.

The murders and mass executions bordering on Genocide is a human rights crime.

The indoctrination of the young is a human rights crime.

All of the above are being committed by the Communist Chinese State on a group of people who have not caused any issue, and who just want to be left alone and where it is based purely on religion. Have we not seen this already with disastrous consequences in the last century?

There is also the issue of those companies who actively work with the Chinese Communist State and use the slave labour of these poor people. These are Western Companies and I have blogged about them before and shame on them if they are still using these oppressed people. Shame on the CEOs who put their greed before demanding the rights of those who really are suffering and that is something this tribunal can do. Call out those companies and CEOs and make them stand trial for profiteering from the suffering of others.

Something has to be done to hold these people to account….

The  “Uyghur Tribunal” has no state backing and any judgement would not be binding on any government, but it has drawn a furious response from Beijing, which dismissed the hearings as a “machine producing lies”. If it has no binding judgement then why on earth do this? Those in need have to have some concrete help and not well meaning meetings that do nothing. There has to be some light at the end of this nightmare tunnel for them.

We have already watched our Governments do nothing with regards to the virus from China but this is something that they could say was unavoidable, but not the torture and genocide of a people because of their religious beliefs. Where are the other Muslim countries? Should they not be demanding that this stops? Anybody with human feelings, emotions and who are disgusted by what they are doing should demand it stops.

Where is the basic decency of nations to demand this stops?

It is an eternal shame on this country and other democracies that nothing is being done, and that each day there are more rapes, tortures, abortions and murders, and what is laughable is that China is actually on the UN Human Rights Council. This has to be the most offensive seat in any political body and shows why the UN is weak, toothless and can do no more than send a strongly worded letter that just gets thrown in the bin.

We in the West are allowing the Chinese State to get away with genocide and doing nothing about it. When you think of the fact that it is the anniversary of D Day and you think back to those brave young men and women who went to fight tyranny committed by the Nazis, and yet we see the same thing happening again. It makes it even more telling that decades later that a country committing these human rights violations now enjoy a seat at the table of an organisation that was created to prevent such a thing happening again.

It is an insult it really is. It is an insult to the people who are suffering.

“Guards in the camp did not treat the prisoners as human beings. They were treated less than dogs,” Qelbinur Sidik said through an interpreter. “They enjoyed watching them being humiliated and their suffering was for them their joy.” Female prisoners were allegedly abused when they were taken for interrogation.

“They were not only tortured but also raped, sometimes gang-raped,” Sidik said. “The things that I have witnessed and experienced, I can’t forget.” Sidik said she was also subjected to forced sterilisation. ‘Uyghur Tribunal’ opens with testimony of alleged rape, torture | Human Rights News | Al Jazeera

Can we really just stand by and do nothing? If we can then we should hang our heads in shame………

If we love the NHS don’t let Dido Harding run it….

Having heard the breath-taking news that Baroness Dido Harding is mulling over the idea of applying for the role of Head of the NHS….yes running the NHS.

My god how blinkered are some people.

She is not capable of running the NHS. Having taken some £37 billion pounds of taxpayers money on a track and trace app that was useless, we cannot afford our beloved NHS to fall into the hands of someone who is totally unable and incapable of running it.

Before Track and Trace there was the debacle over Talk Talk where over 175,000 customers had their accounts hacked and money stolen from their accounts. A total failure all round and I actually did some work for Talk Talk and the customers were getting no satisfaction, and can remember the tears and the horror at some of their stories and the order came direct from the top…..don’t put any through to Dido Harding. So, there was the boss of the company that through their lapse of security caused customers some real losses and heartache not dealing with the issue. So, can you imagine the state of the NHS? I can and it does not bear thinking about and here is a radical idea….put a professional in charge…an actual Doctor, Consultant, Professor…someone who actually knows what they are on about and who will be an asset to the NHS.

Harding is a former Jockey, then worked in high street companies before Talk Talk…so her actual knowledge of the NHS equates to the square root of nothing.

We cannot afford to have such a person in charge. The NHS cannot afford someone getting it because they are a chum of…instead of an actual professional who can bring something to the party. These sort of appointments should not be because of an age old friendships at university as this would make the whole thing stink, and if Harding did get it…then the Prime Minister needs to answer to Parliament why he is making her head of the NHS and then prepare for a disaster.

Harding whose bungled handling of the NHS Test and Trace programme led to demands from within her own party for her to be sacked has set her sights on running the NHS. Baroness Dido Harding is said to be considering putting herself forward to run the health service in England. She is reported to have sounded out senior health leaders about replacing Sir Simon Stevens, who is stepping down next month and becoming a peer himself.

A report earlier this year said Track and Trace had ”minimal impact on transmission’ despite receiving £37billion of funding.   The Commons Public Accounts Committee said in March there was no evidence the tracing scheme had made a dent in Covid transmission, despite its ‘unimaginable’ budget. In common speak….it was a waste of time and a waste of our monies and we cannot afford to let Baroness Harding loose on the NHS budget

We all know that the NHS is something that is unique and we all value it and because it holds such an important place in our society, we need to know that it will be in safe hands….and hers are not it.

There are rumblings in the Conservative Party and only last year prominent Tory MP Sir Bernard Jenkins sided with Labour and side she should have been replaced, as you have to ask yourself how many failures can we the taxpayer keep giving the likes of Baroness Harding before someone actually realises that it needs an expert and not your BFF.

This is now the time for the Leader of the Opposition to actually step up and act like a real Leader of the Opposition and object, and he will have other Conservatives joining the ranks and he and they must do everything in their power to oppose the crowning of Harding as NHS Czar, as we and the NHS cannot afford anymore of her interventions…..the taxpayers and the people cannot afford her mistakes anymore.
