62MILLION a year bidding against each other for NHS contracts
Labour last night slammed the money frittered away on the Jacob Tamme Jersey lawyers and bureaucrats involved in putting
together the bids and said the cash should be spent on dealing with the A crisis
or cutting waiting times.
According to information released under freedom of information rules, the
average cost of bidding for an NHS contract last Womens Nate Irving Jersey year was 33,900.
The average cost of assessing a tender for a potential bid was 4,700.
Using official NHS data, Labour estimates that each of England's 236 trusts

putting NHS services out to tender.
The figures follow warnings last week that patients could be charged for some
NHS treatments if the NHS fails to close a 30 billion black hole in its
Labour's Shadow Health Secretary Andy Burnham condemned the waste of money
and accused the PM of presiding over the sell off of the NHS.
Mr Burnham said: "While the NHS has been throwing cash at lawyers, cancer
patients are waiting longer for treatment and the A crisis has got worse.
"We are beginning to see the true cost of David Cameron's decision to put
market forces at the heart of the NHS. He needs to be reminded that nobody has
ever given him their permission to put the NHS up for sale.
"His Authentic Jacob Tamme Jersey re organisation has wasted
billions and put the wrong values at the heart of the NHS. Labour will repeal
Cameron's Health Act and free the NHS from this market madness."
Mr Burnham added: "We are not waiting for next year's Election but acting now

2015-May-15 - Desert is what we would
Diner from Jacksonville
There is nothing good I can say about this restaurant. I called ahead to make
a reservation for a party of 7. When we arrived it took over an hour to get our
food, which could have been ok if it was correct. NOTHING was correct! It was
like being thrown into the twilight zone! I ordered a croissant egg sandwich
with mushrooms, onions and tomatoes. It came out with ham onions! So I sent it
back and said I love mushrooms and that why I ordered this sandwich. 2nd time
(30 min later) it came back with just onions and tomatoes! WHAT!? So I asked our
server if I could just have a side of mushrooms to throw in. It took another 20
min to get them! This was only MY meal by the way; there were 5 other meals that
needed to be sent back also! When everything came out (half correct by the end)
and cold, I asked to speak to the owner. BIG MISTAKE THAT WAS! I explained the
situation, nicely honestly, and asked if there is anything she could do for us.
She got close to me and yelled "No, I do not give discounts! This is how I make
a living!" She then called our server over and SCREAMED at her and said it was
her fault and she could take our meals out of her paycheck if she wanted!!! We
obviously paid for our meals and didn't make our waitress suffer for the
horrible management and kitchen staff she is under. I don't know Demaryius Thomas Jersey how this restaurant is still in
business, with an owner who YELLS at her customers!

Was looking for a good breakfast/lunch cafe experience, and came away
floored. The food is top notch, and the prices are reasonable, if not low!
Far and away, the French Onion Soup will stay with me for a long, Ryan Clady Jersey long time. It was savory and sweet, hinted
of sherry and the time necessary to make good things. The cheese was plentiful,
the bread was lumpy and gave a really pleasant chompiness to the soup!
Also had some salmon in a wrap (great taste, creamy herby spread) and I
stared longingly at the endless selection of crepes and omelettes. Will
definitely be back.
The chef's name is David He's pretty great. Check out his shoes!

We tried coming here a few times over the past year only to find it closed
(during operating hours) and once a missing chef! But We decided to try once
more (but called first) and this was the best breakfast we've had this year!!!
The croissant was perfectly cooked, flaky, and the closest Authentic Von Miller Jersey we've found to Parisian this side
of the pond! The Eiffel Tower (crepe, waffle, pancake) was fresh, tasty, and
wonderfully made The omelet was perfectly cooked light and fluffy with the
ingredients well integrated. The only regret was that I didn't get the Eggs
Florentine (which my husband got) that was out of this world. Friendly service,
amazing food, totally worth the wait!!
First thing I'd like to say is, the food is expensive. Lunch for 2 was $72
before tip. And the food was okay, but not $72 okay. My wife and I both ordered
the baked onion soup as an appetizer and had side salads for our sides. The
salads were great! Fresh vegetables served with a tasty French vinaigrette
dressing was very good. The onion soup was a meal unto itself, it was more an
onion 'casserole' than a soup, it was that hardy. The broth's flavor was
delicate, I detected little to no beef broth and no wine or sherry as the
classic dish calls for. But the bowl was large and full of onions and cheese .
the bread was a rye that I didn't recognize, though the flavor was Womens Von Miller Jersey good, but maybe a bit too much of it.
Overall the soup was good.
Our entrees came, don't be in a hurry here. The chef is young and our waiter,
who was excellent, was teaching him the ropes it seemed. My entree was Beef
Bourguignon, which was excellent, although small in portion. I had ordered
ratatouille as my other side and instead, they sent Paris Express potatoes.
Which, by the way, is 2 hash brown cakes. So he immediately brought me the
ratatouille and let me tell you it was awesome. The bell pepper and tomato
flavor stole the show.
My wife ordered Chicken Cordon Bleu and the Paris Express potatoes. It was
missing a key ingredient . the creamy sauce was not included. The chicken breast
was good and juicy, covered in ham and melted cheese, Authentic Ryan Clady Jersey covering pieces of the
aforementioned rye bread. Very dry but the flavor was there.
Desert is what we would go back for if we ever went back. I ordered the
chocolate mousse and my wife the creme brulee. My chocolate mousse was good, but
the creme brulee was killer, easily the star of the whole meal. We would make
the 40 minute drive and spend the money on Authentic Demaryius Thomas Jersey the creme brulee alone.
Went to Paris Express with friends, but did not have a good experience. Got a
tiny fruit cup as a side, not very tasty. Got pasta as the other side, but the
dish was chipped into the pasta. I didn't see the chips until I had added it to
my main dish of beef bourguignon. I could not separate all the chips, so I was
unable to eat my meal. I ordered a croissant, but that was very overdone. I told
my waiter, but nothing was ever done. Not even an apology. Very bad

2015-May-15 - Without mentioning Andrew
Carlyle and Gardiner need to get on the same page
Of all the challenges Randy Carlyle faces as coach of the Maple Leafs, none
may be more difficult than finding a common ground between coach and the
immensely talented defenceman, Jake Gardiner.
An NHL scout, who watched the Leafs first two games in Montreal and
Philadelphia called Gardiner play erratic through the pre season Karl Mecklenburg Jersey and start of the regular season. In
the report he filed to his team, he referred to his style of play as challenge
is both for Carlyle and Gardiner and the trust that needs to be built between
Carlyle has to believe in Gardiner to give him more freedom and thus more ice
time. Gardiner has to think the game better and adapt more to what the coaching
staff wants of him. All this being reminiscent of a great Harry Neale line: has
to play better to play more or he has to play more to play better. is an
unintentional tug of war, but one that needs to be settled for both parties to
eventually succeed. The Leafs don want to waste Gardiner gifts, but there has to
be some give and take Authentic Karl Mecklenburg Jersey here.
And if it all works out, the big winner in the end is the hockey club. But
there is doubt whether it can work out.
THIS AND THAT
The smartest thing the Leafs could do during the season: Signing Cody Franson
long term. He sure looks like a player on the rise . Quick question: Name the
past three cities Authentic Tom Jackson Jersey to host the NBA all star game?
Next question: Name the MVPs of the past three all star games? That how
important the NBA all star game is in the big picture . PS: What did hosting the
MLB all star game do for Toronto in 1991? If you don remember, you not alone . I
certain that MLSE wouldn have housed the NBA all star game if not for the
$500,000 kicked in by the Ontario government. That bottom roster player money
for MLSE but it does make them look terrible here, doesn it? . My three stars
Thursday night in Philadelphia: 1. Jonathan Bernier; 2. David Bolland. 3.
Carlyle. The coach had a masterful night behind the bench, manipulating his
lineup, winning matchups on the road, something he doesn get enough credit for
being able to pull off . Welcome to the Edmonton Oilers, Dallas Eakins. That 4 2
lead ended up as a 5 4 defeat on opening night. Old Oilers habits don die easily
. There is a tension around the Philadelphia Flyers that belies the early
schedule. When they lost their home opener to the Leafs in a game they had no
business losing, there was a sense around their dressing room and management
staff that there is already deep concern about this group.
HEAR AND THERE
Leo Cahill, who has moved from Sarnia to Atlanta, won make his way to Toronto
later this month to be inducted in the Ontario Sports Hall of Fame. His health
prevents him from travelling. He still isn in the Canadian Football Hall of Fame
and may never be, which remains a great injustice . Is there anything more
boring than the daily conversations that have already begun: Will he get
suspended? Will there be a hearing? Will there be a phone call? Ahhhhhhh . The
$10 million Phil Kessel will be paid next season is the highest single season
salary in Leafs history. The previous high: Mats Sundin at $9 million. Kessel
salary cap hit comes in at $8 million beginning next season . For those who keep
track of such important matters, Kessel will be paid $40,650 per period next
season. If he plays all 82 games, that is . The day after the frightening George
Parros incident in Montreal, the NHL sent out a memo to teams asking them to de
emphasize fighting on their arena scoreboards. The tone of the memo: Let try and
tone things down, people . The Blue Jays can play but they sure can broadcast.
Buck Martinez is doing post season colour on television, Dirk Hayhust is doing
studio and Mark DeRosa, who has a long post season history as a player, is doing
SCENE AND HEARD
Years ago, when Robert Baker surrounded me along with other receivers in the
Argos locker room in an attempt to intimidate, one of the Argos PR people
whispered in my ear afterwards that he was the wrong person to pick a fight
with. I took the advice. the kind of guy who could be carrying a gun at any
time, an Argos voice told me then. Not surprised this week to Tom Jackson Broncos Jersey learn that Baker, who had
previously done time in prison, stands to spend considerable time in jail after
pleading guilty to trafficking heroin and gun charges in Georgia . Some thing
never change: Mike Komisarek was a healthy scratch in his first game with the
Carolina Hurricanes . Two words to describe Patrick Roy as of Saturday
afternoon: Undefeated and unapologetic. Roy is in Toronto on Tuesday night with
the Avalanche . Bolland will get his Stanley Cup ring in two weeks when the
Leafs play the Blackhawks in Chicago . Ex Leaf Mike Kostka made his debut with
the Hawks on Saturday night, taking the place of Michal Rozsival. Rozsival isn
hurt, but Hawks wants to see what Kostka can add while at the same time limiting
Rozsival playing time . Reason No. 4,538 why believing in backup quarterbacks as
starters is dangerous business: Matt Flynn. For reason No. 4,537 see Kevin Kolb
. A question for Scott Milanovich: Why do the Argos have so many lousy first
halves? Why aren they ready to play at the beginning of games? . As things
turned out, maybe the Buffalo Bills should have kept quarterback Tarvaris
Jackson after giving him a $500,000 signing bonus in the winter before letting
AND ANOTHER THING
If you watched Thursday night football game in a bar, without sound, you
would have had difficulty identifying who made the terrific Cleveland punt
returns. The reason: Travis Benjamin hair is so long and bushy it covers up the
name on the back of his jersey. Normally, I could care less how long anyone hair
is. But in this case, Gary Zimmerman Jersey a scissors might have been appropriate .
Maybe it an optical illusion, but doesn it look like the inside receivers in the
CFL are just a tiny bit offside on almost every play? . Strange start to the
post season with baseball scores like 12 2, 9 1, 7 1, 6 1, 6 2. And in between a
close game or three . Will Ricky Romero ever pitch for the Blue Jays again? My
bet is no . Why are the owners of sporting teams always referred to as Mr. As is
Mr. Illitch or Mr. Steinbrenner. The commissioner isn Mr. Selig or Mr. Bettman.
The general managers and players are called by their names. But it always Mr.
Kraft or Mr. Wilson . Happy birthday yesterday to Mario Lemieux and Patrick Roy.
Happy birthday today to Bruno Sammartino (78), Nazem Kadri (23), Pokey Reddick
(49), Darren Oliver (43), Daniel Briere (36), Kenny Jonsson (39) and Tony Dungy
(58) . And hey, whatever became of Homer Bush?
PAN AMS A WASTE OF MONEY
What if they held the Toronto International Film Festival next September and
not a single star showed up? Not an actor you heard of? Not a director or
producer of consequence?
Would you go to see movies you weren sure about, acted and directed by those
you weren familiar with?
And if that was the case, what would happen to one of the great Toronto
events on the calendar?
TIFF would become the Pan American Games, a hugely expensive, taxpayer
funded, basically unwanted event, demanded really by no one. And as we found out
this week and will continue to find out for the next two years the spending
historically on these kind of events borders on the out of control.
The Pan Am Games is a 100 metre race without Usain Bolt, a swim meet without
Michael Phelps, a triathlon without Simon Whitfield. A sporting festival without
recognizable sporting stars.
STEVIE Y NO HYPOCRITE
I don believe Steve Yzerman is being hypocritical regarding his view on
fighting in the National Hockey League. I believe he is being progressive in his
It isn at all uncommon for former athletes to view their jobs and their
professions differently upon retirement than they did when they played. Ask most
athletes about coaches when they played for them and then ask them again years
later and the answers will in now be similar.
That isn hypocritical of them: It growing up, finding perspective, seeing
there is more than one side to any story.
When Yzerman calls for change regarding fighting in hockey, he is not
slighting the late Bob Probert or forgetting where he came from and was made
available to him with the Detroit Red Wings. He is looking at the game, through
a different prism, at a more advanced age, but as general manager of Tampa Bay
as one of the game caretakers. In this case, he and Ray Shero and Jim Rutherford
should be listened to, if only to get meaningful discussion going on the place
of fighting in hockey and where the game goes from here.
AINGE NO FAN OF WIGGINS
Without mentioning Andrew Wiggins, Boston general manager Danny Ainge made it
clear that he doesn believe the Canadian will be the next great star in the NBA.
In fact, he went out of his way, without naming Wiggins (which he isn allowed)
to distance himself from the apparent No. 1 pick in next year NBA Draft.
Kareem Abdul Jabbar was out there to change your franchise forever, or Tim
Duncan was going to change your franchise for 15 years? That might be a
different story, Ainge said when asked about Gary Zimmerman Broncos Jersey tanking the season, which
appears to be the Celtics strategy. don see that player out there. is right
about one thing, but it may not be Wiggins. He is right about the difficulty of
tanking. And a lot of that depends on the year. His Celtics could end up with
the worst record in the NBA and because of the lottery system, still not end up
with first pick.
