Comment on NHS: The Great British Give-Away by R J Adams

Mon, 05 Mar 2018 10:48:38 +0000

WWW - disposable, yes, but actually quite useful in increasing the wealth of the few. A clever way to take those unable to contribute personally by working, and still make lots of money from them. Twilight - bar some unknown intervention, it seems likely that via Brexit, privatisation will come to pass. The sad part is the majority of Brits still appear to believe Theresa May's lies.

What a sickening read, RJ! But thank you for keeping we ex-pats updated. NHS has been such a godsend to so many, including yours truly over the years - I detest the thought that soon it might be no more - or more likely existing "in name only" .

This has been coming ever since the poodle show of Blair and Bush and the backroom skullduggery. Why is it always the poor, vulnerable, sick and elderly that are thrown onto the chopping block? Silly me, the most disposable, the less likely to have the energy to complain. XO WWW

WWW - ah, I just hope you live up to your name on this one, Wise Web Woman, and your expectations turns out to be true. Personally, well, you know me - the Old Cynic!

Twilight - ah, but Mister Trump's taking action. He's trying to ban the sale of bump stocks. But, hang on! The Florida shooter wasn't using a bump stop - was he? Your link says it all. The country's a madhouse.

Unbridled patriarchy combined with rampant capitalism where stuff is valued more than humanity is at the root of every ill in the world today. But these kids and other kids (and women) I know will fix it. Or die. There is a sea change happening RJ. It will be amazing XO WWW

Thanks for the last 2 posts, RJ. I simply could not bring myself to write anything on this dreadful topic - all I felt able to do without having a major BP incident was put (again) a relevant note in my sidebar. I do not know how the powers that be can live with themselves! And take a look at this, RJ Nobody cares. It's beyond ridiculous. Young people can't go have a drink (alcohol) until age 21, but they can buy on of these hand held death machines!

Twilight - I guess they use online data for their info. WPP has huge data collection facilities. I doubt it makes their stats anymore accurate than going door-to-door with a questionnaire. We're ruled by stats these days. Even medical advice is based on them, and that changes like the wind. One day it's good to drink wine, the next alcohol is a deadly poison and will kill us all. Okay, so I'll die happy. ;-)

Twilight - Thank you, yes I am almost back to normal thanks to a change of doctor to one who seems to know what he's talking about. In my day blackberries were only good in a pie. Am I old, or what! ;-) WWW - Any more questions? ???? Only one - where on earth do you find the time? ;-)

It has to be said: “There are three types of lies -- lies, damn lies, and statistics.” ? Benjamin Disraeli Where did they get their information? Did researchers go around inspecting the plates of dinner-eating Brits? Or was it a telephone enquiry thingie, or a form to fill in dropped through assorted letter boxes? Of course people are going to tell you what they think you want to hear. They probably know that the environment will suffer less if less meat is eaten, so think they are telling you the right thing - even when they've been chomping on pork chops, beef stew and steak and kidney pie all week long. Did they enjoy a nice veggie burger on that survey night - course they did, they said.
