One year on, and Theresa May has betrayed almost everyone she vowed to help | Politics | The Guardian
[a speech to reassert herself] She will say her commitment to social justice and determination to address difficult issues remains “undimmed”, despite her calamitous general election performance. But pre-briefings suggest it will be light on specifics (unlike last year, where it sprinkled with references from poor access to mental health services to unequal life expectancy).

Of the legendary Jam families, there appears to be no mention. [...] A record 60% of British people in poverty now live in households where someone is in work. &! https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2017/jul/10/making-maybot-theresa-may-rise-and-fall?CMP=twt_gu

[ promising to add 10k staff, while cut 6k since 2010. before that mental health staff and beds have been falling since the 2000s ] While the announcement is likely to be welcomed by mental health campaigners, there will be warnings that a lack of resources, rather than badly drafted laws, has been the real driver of the increase in detention.

NHS staff 'quitting to work in supermarkets because of poor pay' | Society | The Guardian
NHS staff are quitting to stack shelves in supermarkets instead of caring for patients because they are so demoralised by years of getting pay rises of only 1% or nothing, hospital bosses have warned.

The health service is now so understaffed that patient safety is being put at risk and people with mental health problems are experiencing delays and setbacks as a result, NHS leaders say.

More NHS mental health patients treated privately - BBC News
NHS spending on private mental health inpatient beds went up 42% over five years across 40 mental health authorities that responded to freedom of information requests.
Experts say there is a chronic shortage of NHS beds.
It means some patients are placed in private units far from home. [ bed # have come down gradually since 2000, lowest number ever. trusts deceided to cut number of beds and staff, and put that money in geriatric, cancer, cvd care, and investigations also showed that extra money for mental health by tories was put elsewhere but not mental health, and when trusts had to cut, mental health was first, )

So Theresa May thinks she just needs to look the part… | David Mitchell | Opinion | The Guardian
[ didnt she open her leadership campaign w 'not fillinf columns' dig at bojo, and 'getting on with the job' - will do brexit even I was for remain, ... oh and JAM's and mental health not getting bread crumbs because Spreadsheet philip thinks we can not afford it at all ... Austerity 2.0 ... and there there were the 1000£ leather trouses. ] So I may as well try to look at it from her point of view – summon up some empathy, a term that May herself disdained in the accompanying interview as “a very ‘today’ word”. She’s not completely fashion mad then. She prefers to say “understanding”. Thus the social worker becomes the biologist: while we may empathise with our fellow humans, we merely understand the life cycle of the cockroach.
