Why Britain Has Misinterpreted The Role Of The NHS

On Monday during a speech to the King’s Fund health think-tank, the Conservatives’ Leader David Cameron proposed to transfer the day-to-day administration of the National Health Service from government ministers to an independent board. While Cameron is right to push for the liberation of the NHS from the traditional obsessive socialist dogma of rigid targets and excessive financial waste and bureaucracy, the National Health Service’s problems go well beyond political mismanagement. These problems are cultural engrained on the British psyche and are concerned with the entire purpose of the NHS itself.
When Clement Atlee’s first Labour government introduced the NHS during 1948, it not only intended to provide instant healthcare to the less fortunate members of society who were unable to afford private medical provision, it also sought to provide a health service so good that the better off would prefer the NHS over the private sector alternatives. Unfortunately, as the history of the NHS has consistently shown; this not only impossible, but also immoral as Sir Keith Joseph, Baroness Thatcher and Nicholas Ridley all realised. The primary functions of the NHS are to provide healthcare for those who cannot afford it privately and attend to medical emergencies at the taxpayers’ expense. The NHS should not subsidise the treatment of the better off whom whether they realise or not are consuming resources that are intended for the less fortunate out of a selfish desire for their own convenience over those who need it more. Not only that, but the NHS should not purchase and subsidise medical nonessentials such as Viagra tablets. If impotent men what an erection, they should pay for it out of their own expense!
If the NHS is to provide any real long-term improvement in health provision, then the nation must accept that the NHS cannot compete with the services provided by the private equivalents and as such, resources need to be better prioritised. Those who can afford private provision should be compelled out of moral obligation to the less fortunate to receive private treatment so long as it is not subsidised by the taxpayer and state.

You are empty. You have nothing in this world to hold on to so you hang on to politics.

You are not fair and righteous, you are racist and cruel. Your days will end soon. You will see what a perverted freak you are.

I saw you the other day. Watched you voice a rant to someone where the person looked on blankly. It was humourous.

Realise that you will not go far until you change. I will haunt you whereever you go until you stop haunting others.

I did not know you were in Bristol Stalin?

Get a life fool because YOU are the racist, YOU are empty and YOU are the pervert!

This is not The Crow Stalin, this is real life and the reality is that you should not hunt what you cannot kill!

xSorrowx said...

do you even know what a racist is. Explain where in my comment I mention my hate for a race of people...

You seem to be so pious and yet nothing you do can save you from the fate you are setting yourself. You will not go high in politics. You are not neutral enough.

C4' said...

The centre ground is morass, only Thatcherism works.

Besides you are a fine to talk about neutrality considering you are racist against Jews and your hero is Iosef Koba Stalin!

xSorrowx said...

Your comment makes no sense. Please explain in plain English where I have commented on a race of people to be called a racist.

Seems to me like anyone who apposes you is a racist. Anyone who does not believe in what you believe must love Stalin. Please be more clear on this as I can feel you questioning yourself.

By the way. I have not mentioned the jews. I have a feeling you are labeling everyone anti semantic even though they have not breathed a word of it because you have a problem with the jews. Could this be true? I feel it is.

I can't understand what you're saying.

How's about taking that cock out of your mouth then trying again?

I guess you will not be able to see what or who you are until you stop hiding behind false alias's or 'friends'. Read what I have written. You will get what you deserve, just wait and see. You will understand what it is to be humbled. You are not conservative, you are Robert Killroy silk. Everyone hates him because he cannot be just.

Give it up Helen, no one is buying your tripe! Anyone who find jokes about the gas chambers funny has a very sick mind.

I find your little threats so amusing, you still have not figured it out yet. I can not be bought, bribed, bullied, brainwashed, frightened or imtimidated. I on the other hand have a stare that can burn holes in brick walls.

I fear no evil!

Who is Helen? I am new to this fighting a conservative. Do all acuse people of being anti semantic? Please tell me how I make jokes about jews? you confuse me with this and I grow weary of you. I have copied all of this and have sent it to your MP. He will tell me what he thinks of you and how you accuse strangers of hating jews.

C4' said...

I have copied all of this and have sent it to your MP.

And who is my MP? Where do I live? You do not know the first thing about me and you never will.

You're a nutcase!

Actually, I doubt Alan Williams will care what an uppity Tory gets up to behind closed doors, but local Conservative councillor Alun Cairns and assembly member Huw Rees might be a little more embarrassed on behalf of their party's younger member?

Then again, I doubt they even have as much time to waste on this as we do. They'd probably file it under C for cock-sucking and get back to their morning routine of jerking off on government time.

Because let's face it, there's nothing better than beating it while getting paid for your efforts.

Wrong area Helen, as I have moved. Also Mr. Cains is a AM, not a local councillor and I doubt the Swansea West Conservative Association will pay any attention to an autocratic, authoritarian, racist bully such as youself. I am quite popular within the local association and even among the ranks of Tory AMs and MPs. You're standards are slipping Helen!

Here are two questions for you Stalin. What proof do you have that I am a racist? Also, do you actually have anything constructive to contribute to this entry on the NHS? If you do not, then I suggest that you post your deranged rants on a more suitable topic or better still, keep your evil opinions to yourself.

The best advice to follow is your own. You are avoiding my question, you must hate jews or you wouldn't keep mentioning stalin. You 23 year old in old mans clothes, I know that you are ill and for this reason I will no longer pity you.

C4' said...

I'm as fit as a fiddle!

xSorrowx said...

I didn't mention your physical health.

If I hate the Jews, then why am I fan of prowrestler and actor Bill Goldberg? Why would spend money on buying Goldberg-related items if I hated Jews? I support the existence of the State of Israel, I find 'jokes' extremely offensive, I despise David Irving, George Galloway, Mel Gibson and Ken Livingstone for the anti-Jewish stance not to mention that my personal lord and saviour Jesus Christ was a Jew as well.

xSorrowx said...

your first comment called me a jew hater, i had mentioned nothing.

You are ill. It's ok, You will be judged.

C4' said...

Don't be pendantic, I know EXACTLY who you are and what you have done over the years. You're the one who is ill!
