The NHS is cumbersome and outdated.
The Politian’s needs to sit down and look at how France, Japan and the Scandinavian country’s provide healthcare that is superior to the UK.
But they wont. The conservatives will continue to stealth cut while being to scared to address the problem while Labour froth at the mouth and religiously try to guard the status quo crying about going to a "US healthcare system" while ignoring the fact there are a dozen other country’s with better healthcare systems than the UK that do provide free healthcare for all.
We need to grow up and accept that yes the US healthcare system sucks but so does ours and there is more to the world than the UK and USA!

Oh # right off, you are the one who is hypnotised. Blame the immigrants for our underfunded nhs, blame the immigrants for cuts to policing, blame the immigrants for lack of social care that bogs the hospitals down. This site is about denying ignorance, but you buy right in to the propaganda so you don't look at who's actually causing the problem.
People are "dying" as a result of the government's austerity cuts, Jeremy Corbyn has claimed, as he urged voters to use two upcoming by-elections to "send a message" to the prime minister.
Speaking at his party's local government conference in Warwick, the Labour leader accused ministers of "disgraceful neglect" saying it had led to an "emergency" in local services, including social care.
"We have a state of emergency in our social care system and the worst crisis in the history of our NHS," he said, adding the situation in social care was an "absolute scandal that leaves 1.2 million elderly people without the care they need".

there was a story on cnn yesterday I was reading about how the companies here in america needed the immigrants because they couldn't find enough native people who are able to pass their drug tests.. how the immigrants came here willing and able to work, drug free, ready to go after that american dream!! well... beyond the fact that their drug tests aren't as accurate as they claim.... by the time I got about halfway through the article my thinking was kind of in the form of...
ya, the americans, having already concluded that the american dream is lost to them, and are becoming drug addicts, lots of times with the help of the pill pushing healthcare system. while the immigrants are probably more inclined to resort to the herbal remedies that have been passed down to them, so aren't having the pills pushed on them as much. but still, sooner or later, they will come to the same conclusion, the american dream has become nothing more than a dream really. some probably already have... and what will they turn to?? terrorism?

Ah look! Socialism is succeeding. You are running out of other people's money. Turns out Thatcher was right after all.
And think about this Americans who read this thread ... The US has 350 million. The UK is having trouble proving now that they're bumping up on 2.5 million. Just let the reality of the difference between those two numbers sink in.
