"Der Schuster hat die schlechtesten Schuhe": #Bevölkerungsschutz und eigene Resilienz.
Einsatzkräfte rücken aus, um anderen zu helfen. Doch wie gut sind wir selbst aufgestellt? Ein Thread über brennende Feuerwehrwachen, weggeschwemmte Fahrzeuge und eigene Resilienz:
Es liegt in der Natur unseres Auftrages "Bevölkerungsschutz", dass Einsatzkräfte eher dann gefordert sind, wenn es ungemütlich wird: Brände, Überschwemmungen, Pandemien oder Ausfall von kritischer Infrastruktur wie Strom & Wasser.
Daher sollte man annehmen, dass die Einrichtungen des Bevölkerungsschutz besonders gegen solche Ereignisse abgesichert sind. Spoiler:
Theoretisch ja, praktisch nein.

I've worked in the #NHS for 20 years. It is already massively #privatised.
The white paper for the new "health reforms" plans to remove competition for contracts so private companies can get them without a competitive process.
And they can sit on the new #NHS #ICS boards that decide who gets the contracts. A #virgin exec already sits on the #Bristol one.
#Virgin took children's health in #Devon, did an awful job, #NHS took it back and were left to pick up the pieces
Have you just watched the #Pandemic?
#Serco Test and Trace, #PPE contracts to cronies. Billions and billions of tax payers money haemorrhaged into private consultants pockets and shareholders.
Drop your BS narrative that private is more effective and accept that the Pandemic has shown this not to be the case.

The killing of Jeremy Corbyn
Peter Oborne and David Hearst

The former Labour leader was the victim of a carefully planned and brutally executed political assassination
Former Labour Leader Jeremy #Corbyn (Reuters)
Throughout his parliamentary career, the mild mannered, infuriatingly calm Jeremy Corbyn has never failed to excite strong emotions.
For his enemies, he will go down as one of Labour’s worst leaders.

#Panorama - Has the Government Failed the #NHS?,
#BBC One, 27 April 2020

Summary of complaint
We have received complaints from some viewers who felt that the programme was biased against the #govt.
Our response
The programme raised legitimate questions about the govt’s role in ensuring that the #UK is providing #NHS workers with adequate personal protective equipment (#PPE), which we would consider to be of great public interest at this particular time.
The #Panorama investigation also included four significant revelations:
* That the billion plus figure of items of #PPE that the govt has supplied included cleaning products and individually counted gloves.
* That gowns, visors, swabs

@JohnnyMercerUK @LukePollard Why are you making fun of this?

Your colleague, Matt Hancock, said he couldn't guarantee that people wouldn't die (early) due to difficulty in procuring *some* life-saving medicine post-#Brexit.

#NHS & #BMA have both warned about this.

#NHS ordered a stockpile of body bags.
@JohnnyMercerUK @LukePollard Indeed, because your Govt has diverted taxpayers' £ (that's OUR money, not yours) from public services to pay for #Brexit (£6.3bn you're spaffing up the wall, to borrow a Johnsonian phrase), #Brexit has caused some premature deaths already.

I've seen tweets like this:
@JohnnyMercerUK @LukePollard There are already shortages of some medicines because of stockpiling or reluctance to supply #Brexit Britain.
