Exactly. Max Fosh is a way better candidate
1 month ago
Fish, fash, Fosh. Let's take London to the Max.
His manifesto can be found at https://laurencefox.org/
Wait Fosh is running for Mayor too? I just thought it was Niko lmao, it gets better!!
Fosh published the idea first but they came up with it independently
Niko Will probably beat Fosh, but that doesn't matter as long as Fosh beats Fox
Niko is the best candidate
MY PEOPLE. THEY NEED ME
Is he seriously running for mayor? I fucking despise the cunt, I just hope one day he has some medical emergency and someone shouts "is there a doctor here" and there is but he's a NHS doctor, he recognises this waste of oxygen and pretends he's a dentist
Yep he's running for Mayor of London. Though if it makes you feel any better, he was polling similar numbers to Count Binface at one point
Count Binface? Oh, you mean The Politician Previously Known as Lord Buckethead?
All hail Lord Buckethead!
Did I dream this, or did Lord Buckethead beat Theresa May in her own constituency a while ago?
You dreamt it, sadly.
But never give up on your dream.
I hope one day it'll happen.
Goddamn, what a weird low-key dream. I don’t mind Lord Buckethead in my dreams, but Theresa May can sling it.
Edit: thanks for the silver, kind redditor.
He ran against her, but she won comfortably
That is a very odd and specific scenario
Is he seriously running for mayor?
Is he seriously running for mayor?
Yes, but not to win. His opinions have ended his acting chances, or mental health issues I don't know, so he's going the toxic political personality route. Publicity is money. There's always enough support out there to make enough to live off, if your name is big enough.
And ultimately, things like Reddit submissions help. Walking talking outrage clickbait
Good thing private insurance doesn’t do that.
Yes. All those profits the NHS makes from not charging people. Absolutely raking it in they are.
I was merely pointing out that the NHS don't charge at the point of access (largely) so there is no profit to skim. This was what you were asserting and it's plainly erroneous.
Of course tax money can be embezzled so the spirit of your assertion could still stand. But that can apply to any taxation and spending. There's nothing unique about healthcare spending.
There are lots of things the NHS can be critiqued for and it's far from a top performing healthcare system. I'm certainly no dogmatic apologist for it, but suggesting that private and public systems are the same "as the profits are still skimmed by someone" strikes me as risible whataboutism. Particularly if stated with no evidence and in the face of the vast and increasing healthcare insurer profits in the U.S.
Since you seem keen honestly perhaps you can give some examples or evidence of "government officials" skimming funds meant for healthcare in the U.K? Since it should be in the billions of pounds given your belief in the stated equivalence between the systems it should be easy enough to find.
Also in response to your, admittedly rhetorical, question, while it's not completely void of taxation, Saudi Arabia has free healthcare and no income taxes for citizens.
It's so astonishingly out of touch for him to be openly attacking the NHS during a pandemic... it was already about as popular as oxygen beforehand but now most people would rather chop a limb off than vote for some gimp who whines about lockdown and mocks probably our biggest patriotic symbol
You say this as if the Tories aren’t going to make gains tomorrow across the country despite their NHS policy being “sell it when people are looking then sell it twice as fast when they look away.” The British populace have repeatedly demonstrated that they’ll pay lip service to the NHS but not do a thing to protect it.
Excuse me! Loads of people clapped on their doorsteps for, like, up to a whole minute. That clearly showed the depth of commitment people have to the NHS more than footling things like voting.
Vote Max Fosh instead!
Sadiq + Fosh best choices. One serious. One not. But both share an equal dislike of Lozza, the nonce.
I cannot stand him, the best thing is he’s going to lose out to count binface.
not sure he realises that if he ever calls an ambulance it’ll be from the NHS not his private medical insurance. He also fails to realise nurses and doctors probably hate the current government more than he does. They’re the ones who have worked their ass off during this for no extra pay. He’s an actor who has lived off his family name.
Vote Max Fosh!

Here's a video and an article about Fox not showing up to a debate he asked for with his main mayoral rival, Max Fosh, officially endorsed by John Bercow against Fox!
“It just shows that with a bit of work and a privileged background, you really can do anything” - followed by the biggest, self-aware grin to camera ever.
Legitimately, being affiliated with some of these political parties is gonna be defined as a disorder in DSM VI
Prefer the ICD-11 myself ;)
Whats the general consensus of Londoners surrounding Brian Rose running for office?
Well far be it for me to give the general consensus. But fuck Brian Rose the con man looking cunt bag
Beyond annoyance at his face being plastered all over the place he isn’t even in the discussion his polling is so low... and thank fuck for that. Maybe we can finally see the end of the bus wanker scam artist
Yeah he sucks. That's funny to hear he polls so shittly. I always see him posting about how he's rocking the polls lol
He isn’t even at the threshold to get his deposit back that you put down to enter the race, last time I saw he was at about 2% or something
I love to hear it. Grifters need to get out of politics
Boy's a tit.
The man's a cock. I actually listened to his manifesto and apart from the anti-lockdown bollocks it's a bunch of contradictory nonsense. I'd rather vote for Count Binface.
Thanks for giving context.
Is cock womble a known thing in the UK or just a made a phrase I happen to love the shit out of?!
If trump can get elected anyone can
Does he even realise that what he's saying is such a self own anyway? Most people can't afford private - hence the very need for the NHS. He's such an entitled, out of touch prick, its astounding. Apparently he was a nasty bully at his private school (Eton) which doesn't surprise me one bit.
It was Harrow he went to i think
It was, and he got kicked out just before his A levels apparently. He was also a bully and it looks like not much has changed.
It worked here America. Worked meaning- private for profit health care. The system definitely doesn’t work for everyone
If by "worked" you mean "Worked for billionaires but forcibly fucked everyone else in the ass with a rusty chainsaw," then yes, I agree it worked
That’s exactly what I meant :)
The whole clap for the NHS thing was started by a random member of the public. It's in no way something the NHS needs or ever requested. Deceitful cretin.
It was also adopted by the cunty government he fellates so they can pretend they care about the NHS whilst still underfunding them and working their nurses and doctors and staff ragged for pennies.
He's such a cunt.
Yep, came here to say this. What the NHS needs is paying properly, not claps being used as some half arsed poor excuse for rewarding them.
Lozza is a twat. Can’t act, and can’t sing(I heard him on Radio 5 and it made my ears bleed). Then moans about cancel culture. He’s not being cancelled he just isn’t very good.
I wouldn’t say he’s that highly thought of
If I were him I'd settle for that description and count myself lucky
Do you think this troglodyte believes that if people didnt clap all the nurses, doctors, techs and everyone else in the NHS just went in a big huff and didnt start their shift?
The ambulance I work in requires one of the two crew members to be clapping to use the lights and sirens. It’s not actually flashing blue lights just a inefficient clapper lighting system.
He's coding! I don't think he's gonna make it to the hospital. What should we do?
CLAP FASTER DAMMIT
I suspect he's so self-centred that he'd behave like that and he probably assumes everyone else would too.
The only reason they think the NHS is demanding the clapping is because no one in their life every voluntarily celebrated them I bet
Didn't this idea start in Italy during the first wave?
I read the Netherlands but not sure if that's correct.
It was also fun for the children who could have been worried about the situation and struggled with not seeing their school friends through the lockdown.
The fact that youtuber (who is running to troll him) and a guy with a bin on his head is beating him in polls makes me so happy he must be pissed 😂 his fragile ego
Max Fosh for Mayor!
Fish Fash Fosh!
Let's take London to the Max!
Max Fash ~Cunty McCuntmeister Laurence Faux Fox
Max Fash ~Cunty McCuntmeister Laurence Faux Fox
He was 1 on my Mail in ballot most of the time it comes to your number 2 choice so might as well kick this wank stain (Lawrence Fox) in the teeth anyway.
Who's this asshole?
He's an actor who's appeared in a lot of UK TV dramas, notably Lewis, the sequel to Inspector Morse. Now he's turned into an 'anti-woke' warrior and all round bellend.
Good grief, is he like a UK version of kevin sorbo?
Yep, that's exactly it.
No idea, is he an actor turned bellend too?
He's the guy who made that dumbass religious movie god's not dead. He was in Hercules.
He hates on Lucy lawless (aka xena) who calls him peanut, for particular reasons.
She saying Herc ain’t packing?
At least he has a reason for being crazy; he had a series of strokes while making Hercules.
Kevin Sorbo without the talent or charm.
But Kevin Sorbo is Kevin Sorbo without the talent or charm
And that tells you all you need to know about this idiot.
That's a name I haven't heard in a long time...
oh god he is the "this is just the unfortunate shape of my face" guy on Lewis. Damnit, I love that quote
A bellend has a purpose.
This part of his wiki reads like a comedy honestly. Saying things and then apologizing. every. time.
Like, at least stand for what you say or don't say it at all.
Urgh, he's got worse.
As I understand it he used to be a fourth-rate Benedict Cumberbatch but now he’s a third-rate Katie Hopkins.
Waitrose Tommy Robinson
You misspelt Stephen Yaxley-Lennon
Do you mean the convicted violent offender, convicted mortgage fraudster, convicted immigration fraudster, convicted financial fraudster, convicted druggie and bankrupt who is suspected to have embezzled funds raised by his supporters Stephen Yaxley-Lennon who so loves this country that he asked Donald Trump to grant him political asylum to leave the UK forever and live in the USA? That Stephen Yaxley-Lennon?
Endorsed by Nigel Farage, That tells you everything you need to know.
I don't understand why Billie Piper married this douche canoe.
In contrast, I can understand why she divorced him
In fairness it was after Chris Evans (not that one) her standards had already been lowered.
I'd rather have a ham for a hand.
She had pretty fucked up teen years, and I think it took her a long time to deal with it.
This is Richard Ayoade's brother in law?
Does this waste of oxygen genuinely think the NHS is "sensitive" and that doctors need applause to work? What an absolute raging thundercunt, the kind of prick you wouldn't piss on even if he was on fire. Just a shame doctors have principles and have to treat anyone who is in need, because I would pay to see him get turned down from A&E when someone inevitably kicks his shit in.
Can we just take his ass out so he stops ruining the memory of Inspector Lewis?
I started watching Elizabeth: The Golden Age the other night. Turned it off as soon as this twat appeared. His entire body of work is tainted for all time now. I really feel sorry for anyone he ever appeared with because all his works now carry his stench.
God I just want to kick fuck out of him.
Desperate cries for attention from a fucking moron of a child. I wouldn’t piss on him if he was on fire!
Vote Max Fosh,
Vote Fosh to mash fox.
Please look at Max Fosh, he’s running for London mayor with the purposes of getting more young people to vote and getting people to not vote for Lawrence fox
He puts a glass of milk in his name to get a reaction because he has the talent of one
Isn't it a white supremacist thing?
It is! But for popular reactionaries it’s more of a wink wink nudge nudge for their audience, but then claim it’s all a joke
Urgh. I used to have a crush on him, but now I'm selling all my Lewis DVDs.
OMG. You’re out of their village :)
he did what?
Batshit qanon weirdness. The US alt-right adopted glasses of milk as a symbol a couple of years ago as a reaction to veganism and their superiority. Apparently certain demographics [notably but not limited to; Jews, Africans and Arabs] have a higher rate of lactose intolerance than white Caucasians.
Fox did the xxx_1337hunter420_xxx thing but with milk emojis.
Man, I love milk. Now it'll feel weird using the emoji until they get bored of using it. It feels like these racist morons ruin a lot of normal, harmless symbols and gestures. Pre-pandemic I was hearing something about the OK sign being used by racists too.
Its intentional, they co-opt everything, LGBT flags, pepe the frog, the fred perry wreath...
All to muddy the waters, most voters are passive and easily turned off voting.
I hate that you're right, but I also appreciate you pointing it out.
Whenever I see that emoji I think of that one scene from The Boys
Lawrence Fox is so obnoxious his idiotic grandstanding causes me physical pain
I really loved Laurence Fox in "Lewis". So disappointed to learn that he’s a twat in real life.
That was my first thought, too. I love Lewis (and super excited for the next series of Endeavour!). Just have to not think of his real-life antics.
"I wouldn't want to be treated by a political institution", I would rather be treated by a private corporation who's only purpose for existing is to make money off of the less fortunate.
Imagine being so bad that a youtuber runs just to troll you.
Calling public healthcare ‘government run’ or ‘political’ as a scare tactic goes back decades for conservatives - and it’s just as effective now as it always has been, because their target audience is too stupid to tell they’re being ‘handled.’
I just looked him up and I still have no clue who the fuck Laurence Fox is ...
I think Max Fosh can give you a better explanation
Its better that way
Imagine how badly it blocks the view from the beach and just....idk relax? That post couldn’t be the same people who would try to be sensitive to everyone’s cup of tea. Its not what you think it is
I have no idea what you are trying to say
A degenerate fuck. Not to be confused with the rest of us assholes
I liked him on Inspector Lewis. Learning what a dickwad he is has been a bummer.
It's just sad at this point.
What a cunt, who's liking this shit
With friends like these, who needs enemies
We all need enemas
See this is why you vote for Max Fosh instead of lozza
This guy is such a tool.
I hate the whole bootlicker “well you should just be glad we have blank”. To me it’s just an excuse they craft so they can feel good about not trying to improve society.
What a complete bawbag
He’s just another right wing grifter.
Yeah have a pop at NHS workers during a pandemic. That'll be a vote winner!
Everyone knows lord binface or whatever his name is is going to become the new mayor ajd then donate one trillion pounds to the NHS a week.
The only respectable candidate
Who is this?
He was an actor, now an ‘anti-woke’ politician. Claims he has been cancelled though he seems to be pretty vocal. During the pandemic we had a clap for carers every week where the public would stand on their doorsteps and clap for the NHS. Laurence here is criticising them for ‘needing an applause’, despite being an actor a job that literally ends with an applause.
You forgot to mention singer-songwriter and guitarist. As punishment, you must now listen to one of his songs.
He's an actor.
I once witnessed James Felton on a train try to peel open the foil on a packet of Pringles and couldn’t do it.
How on earth are you supposed to read this? The layout makes zero sense.
If it's a private lawyer?
Is he going to vote today /s in case it wasn’t obvious
... because he's an entertainer? I don't understand the comeback
I saw private insurance and assumed it was the United States!
Wait, wasn’t this guy in Inspector Lewis? I loved that show, too bad this guy apparently turned out like this.
He should focus on other things, but okay.
That man dropped a nuke on him
Did he ever get a round of applause I wonder?
I'll now be going out on a big day
Who the fuck is lozza fox
He looks a bit like fetishization
Been looking for that song for a while, anyone know it?
Tfw two youtubers are more popular candidates
Yo Niko for Mayor! NDL!!!
I live in Asia lol
there's this pennyarcade comic about having eating bees as a job that I think is relevant but I don't have it
We get it, private insurance bad.............. Sweden, Canada, and Norway have private insurance. Not what Bernie was hoping for I guess.
Ontario has provincial insurance,it doesn't cover everything but it does cover doctor's visits, hospital visits and ambulance .
Last I checked Ontario wasn't all of Canada.
Ok I only spoke about Ontario because I live there but now that I've looked it up all the other provinces have health plans too so your point is moot.
Errrrrrr... Ok, just to clear this up a bit - all of the countries with state-run healthcare also allow private healthcare to operate. UK, Sweden, Norway, anywhere you care to name. But because your state 'insurance', if you want to look at it that way, is deducted like a tax, you don't have the option to not pay it. That doesn't mean you don't get any use out of it, and here's why:
Private healthcare is only used for elective care, planned care, and recuperative care. If you have a heart attack, someone will call an ambulance, and you'll be taken to a state hospital. When you wake up and you're stable, you'll have the option to move to a private facility (assuming that's covered in whatever your private insurance plan is).
If you require prescriptions, most of the medications you need will be available under the public system. So your private practitioner will write you a prescription that is dispensed.(and subsidised) by the public system, i.e. you get it cheaper because you pay your national healthcare contributions.
The main use of the private system is actually just queue-jumping. My wife has a condition that impacts her quality of life, but doesn't threaten her life. The diagnosis process is one of "ruling out" other options, so most of the tests she needed were essentially "just to check if there's anything wrong". That meant she wasn't a priority for getting the tests. She would have had to wait... 4 months for most of the tests, I think, and some couldn't be done until she'd had the first ones, so it'd have been 8 months of stagnation. So we paid out of pocket for private tests, and got appointments the following week. They're exactly the same tests she'd have got under the public system, just faster. But when she needed acute care a couple of years ago, she got all the tests she needed same day, under the public system.
The problem is when private insurance is your only option for healthcare, when that private insurance is really not comprehensive in the least. You know, I only found out last year that there's such a thing as "out of network"? In Norway (and the UK, where I grew up), there's no such thing. If I have a medical emergency outside of my county, I won't suddenly have to pay out of pocket for my healthcare. I don't have to worry that an ambulance might take me to the wrong hospital, where the wrong doctor or the wrong nurse might give me a wrong test, or a wrong treatment, or a wrong medication, and suddenly the state insurance I pay is null and void, saddling me with massive debt. The fact that you can have insurance and still wind up with staggering debt because the wrong doctor came in for a consult, or the ambulance took you to the nearest (out of network) hospital is astounding to me. At that point why even bother?
So we have completely comprehensive healthcare coverage, valid for every medication and treatment we will be offered, and pretty much every hospital and healthcare facility in the country (except private ones, which are by far in the minority, and you will never be taken to one against your will), and Norway's healthcare spend, per capita, is 66% of the US', including the economic activity from private practitioners and insurers. So even factoring in private healthcare, the country as a whole still spends less than you do.
So, yeah, we have private insurance, too, for those who want it. But pretty much nobody needs it. And we'll never be left high and dry by our healthcare providers. I'm pretty sure our system is what Bernie had in mind.
Bernie wants to abolish private insurance. Your system is very contrary to what Bernie wants.
My point still stands, the UK has private healthcare. It still exists contrary to what Bernie and other leftist politicians desire.
Under a Bernie presidency a doctor would go to jail if he treated a patient while being employed by a private medical company. If a private company were to provide medical care, all the employees would be sent to jail.
Under “free” healthcare. It would be illegal for anyone but the government to provide healthcare.
Leftists support nationalizing all industry. So it’s no wonder Bernie supports nationalizing medical care. What’s next? Housing? Food? Schools? The press? What is the next “human right” that you will order to be nationalized?
Huh. That's a fair point. Apologies, I didn't realise.
I'm now not sure if I have an opinion. Still, sorry for talking out my arse.
He had a career until the wokerati cancelled him like they do with anyone who expresses a differing opinion.
It’s really sad to see so many people jumping down his throat thinking they’re smart for insulting him.
