every moron he led along the way with his nhs brexit schite still can't see that he will be a big part of privatising the nhs, so the same jobless t1ts that followed him around wanting to "take arr kuntry back!" are going to be the same idiots that can't afford healthcare.

well done

I’m no supporter of BoJo (he’s a feckwit) but the NHS can’t continue to be free at point of use forever. It was a model devised in the 1930s that just isn’t sustainable in today’s era. The country won’t be able to continue to fund free healthcare for a growing and increasingly aging population forever.

Labour knew that and ramped up the privatisation of NHS services in the late 90s.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Why not? Genuine question. What factors make it impossible for the NHS to continue as a free at the point of entry service into the future?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
We can’t afford it forever. The amount of our tax that goes to the NHS has significantly increased, way beyond the increase in people’s earnings, over the last 30 years. With the increase in population, people living longer and other cost increases - the only way to keep the NHS free at the point of use is to eventually tax people to a point where they have very little disposable income left.

Something has to change, the problem is, how do you take something like that away from a population that’s had it for 70 years?
----------------------------------------------------------------------

You can't. So you have to be creative. You have to find solutions.

You're right that the NHS can't continue as it has. But the NHS can evolve into something better, sleeker and more cost effective. There are a LOT of things that can be done, not least the fact that the GMC are promoting the idea of being 'more than a clinician', encouraging doctors to engage in leadership and management alongside their clinical obligations. The best people to find solutions are the doctors themselves, not non-clinicians who are making decisions based on budgets, as is the case now.

The patient is critical, but it's not dead yet.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Spot on. There has to be a better way

Ruth Davidson insisted there would need to be an overall majority in Scotland for the SNP before Indyref2 was considered.

Bawjaws being PM will go a long way towards that.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Davidson says this with the knowledge that a parliamentary majority is extraordinarily difficult with our electoral system, one that is designed to avoid it, and the fact the SNP got one before was nothing short of a miracle.

She also disregards the Greens support of indy with that statement.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
She's a waffle merchant. An arrogant one at that.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
It is hypocrisy at its worst. Her statement was only an outright majority for the SNP would be a mandate for indyref2.

Why, that's not the rules?

Further, your party is attempting to govern the fooking country without a majority ya stupid cow.

Frankly, by throwing down the gauntlet like that she may inadvertently provide the impetus for the aforementioned majority. Again.

“We’ve been siphoning off all of their oil underneath their drink sodden noses for 30 years without them noticing. And even when they did find out they still voted to stay in our “1707 paper political” Union...We could turn Loch Lomond into a sewage facility and clear the Highlands again and they’d still want to keep hold of our coat-tails.”

Boris Johnson, in a speech to the 1922 Committee, June 2019

Fairy stories.

The US spends more than twice per capita on healthcare than we do. There is no evidence that it is anymore effective but it is more costly.

http://www.businessinsider.com/cost-of-healthcare-countries-ranked-2019-3xcept that the US spends

Even then, 500k US people are affected by healthcare related bankruptcy every year. All we need is for the NHS to be properly funded.


----------------------------------------------------------------------
This is a totally skewed comparison. The reason the US spends way more than we do on healthcare is because they are getting the money to do so from private medical insurance (mainly provided through employers) and patients having to cough up themselves. It’s not surprising they spend way more on healthcare. Where are the UK going to get the additional funding from?!
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Correct the US medical system also massively overpays in terms of research and development.

Its a bit like with the military, we benefit from their spending, same applies to medicine.

Let’s be honest politics is dull
Politicians are boring

Nothing much ever changes

Hah, the voice of reason!

You are absolutely correct. Drug experimentation? Huh! Hardly get any juicy stories now. Profumo, Thorpe, Cecil, Archer, Currie / Major, Mellor et al.

Prozzies, pooftahs & oranges often at the same party.

Titillation sells.
