Public Health England (PHE) to rebrand as Public Health United Kingdom (PHUK in “PR Gaff of the Year”)

PHE (Public Health England) to rebrand as Public Health United Kingdom (PHUK in “PR Gaff of the Year”)

I think this is an April Fool's joke but it still funny... -AK

Exactly one year to the day after the UK’s Health Protection Agency rebranded to “Public Health England”, the agency has announced it is to change its name again – to Public Health UK, or “PHUK”.
Amid raised eyebrows from government insiders – who have labelled the £500mn marketing initiative as “PR Gaff of the Year” – senior PHUKers firmly rejected claims that the new name would further call Britain’s public health policy into question.

Speaking from her isolated second-home in Anglesey, Baroness Whitewash, the Parliamentary Undersecretary for PHUK, said that the move was “justified”.

“PHUK’s former focus on England fell short of our core aim – which is to leave no part of the UK unaffected by PHUK public health policy.  If we do not incorporate all stripes of the flag, we leave our policies open to unfavourable cross-referencing by independent, non-industry epidemiologists – and that could undermine confidence in PHUK public health competence and policy.”

The rebrand is being announced alongside a string of other new measures which, combined, PHUK hopes will help to ensure that the health of everyone in the UK is placed firmly in its cross-hairs.
One new initiative, called “PHUK You”, is being introduced as part of David Cameron’s drive to introduce an “Internet of Things” that will not just place everyday objects, products and services online, but will also finally connect people directly to the web through the introduction of telemedicine and human microchipping – an intergenerational, trans-millennial aim.

“The BBC, Channel 5, Hollywood and now schools are doing a first-rate job of readying the population for dial-in (and dial-down) facilities to the human body through invasive RFID-chip technology.  We want to seize that momentum, to ensure that we can track people in realtime – all of the time – to help them as they gradually become more ill.  It’s a social-engineering, nudge-policy triumph.”

D Responding to Zap Responding to D Responding to Zap: colour coding is essential, lol

Reblogged from my dear friend Dani at:

Before I begin, I have to profusely thank KP for the amount of work he put into getting this article sorted out, colour coding the various comments and keeping it readably organized- this is a daunting task!!   Love you KP!!

So, apparently someone forwarded an article I wrote last week, responding to ZAP's weekly update, to ZAP/office of poofness, and he has posted his responses to my responses to his comments.... and so now I am going to respond to Zap's responses to my response to his comments with my own comments.

... colour coded to try and keep the dialogue straight.  I'm fully caffeinated and ready!!

My responses to the original ZAP update will be in Blue,  My responses to ZAP's responses to My Responses to ZAPs update this week will be in BLUE ALL CAPS AND ITALICS......  Zap and I are not yelling at each other, we're just running out of options to differentiate various sections of the conversation, lol.As a matter of fact, I think that Zappy baby and I would have a hell of a good time chatting over an espresso.  Drop on by darlin- I'm in Morocco!  Aouchtan to be exact...  but then you knew that already didn't you?  *giggle*

I am including KP's intro here, but then will skip forward to the part of the weekly update where ZAP is responding to my.......  well, you get the picture, lol.

poofness_office_of_35Regarding this Poof message… First off, I’ve never spent as much time reading and “working on” any Poof message.

Part of that is that this Poofness message is pretty long, and part is because I’ve gone through and “marked up” (in RED) all of Zap’s comments. And part of the reason for THAT (the red markup thing) is because Zap includes the full text of a response to Dave (of Australia, I believe (Thx, Dave… Love your FIRE!!), which includes the full text of an article from D of RTS. And part of that article from D of RTS included ZAP IN ALL CAPS sections (dammit!)!!

So it took me about 60 minutes to just go through and compare notes from this Poof message to that in the article from D of RTS. Whew….

Hopefully this will make it a bit easier to understand when D’s RTS article is talking, and when Zap is responding. (remember, ZAP quoted, by D, in D’s article is in ALL CAPS BLACK, Zap’s responses TO that, are in ALL CAPS RED)…
Okay, here we go....
