The title should flag me up as some flasher or some such I expect.
It's actually supposed to be about Health Minister Puddlecote being invited to post on the new National Death Service blog.
It's a grim read, but for those that like to hit back at GPs when they hector on lifestyle choices, as I do, it's a valuable resource that shows how very shocking the so-called 'free' health service is.
Firstly, it's not free. If you work, you pay for it, and you pay a hell of a lot. Secondly, you have little choice. You must pay, or else. Your only meagre choice is to still pay the Government, and then pay a private company again for a health service that actually works.
Just look at the number of abrigations of care detailed in the past couple of days. Even if you still believe that the NHS is free, why would anyone want something that is free if it doesn't do what it is designed to do? Add to that the fact that, God forbid you actually need to use the service you pay for, you are cast as a drain on the service and should alter your lifestyle so that you cost the NHS nothing ... even though you pay lots.
Would you not prefer instead to pay for something better? Especially if you could probably get the better service for the same, if not less, than you are paying already?
Have a look at National Death Service, see what you think.
