Hang on a moment...hasn´t Donald Trump
got a point about the NHS failings?

Daily Mail [UK], by STEPHEN GLOVER

The British are convinced the NHS is the best healthcare system known to man. It is the ultimate sacred cow — to be worshipped and revered and, of course, regularly fed with great wads of cash. So when a few days ago Donald Trump fired off a tweet about the NHS ´going broke and not working´ everyone jumped down his throat. He could hardly have provoked greater consternation had he taken a swipe at our own dear Queen. Downing Street declared that Theresa May was ´proud´ of the NHS. The chief executive of NHS England said the American President had ´got the

Is this guy for real?

On one hand he says that Britain needs to inject more GBP into the NHS. On the other hand he says "British survival rates for most cancers lag behind the rest of the developed world, and in some cases behind much poorer countries". And finally claims "I am, of course, strongly in favour of a universal system of healthcare that doesn´t discriminate against the poorer members of society — which is why the American approach is not for us".

So, who in the heck is going to pay for the poor, buster?

Once again, after all the screaming, "Trump´s a liar, Trump´s a fool, Trump´s an idiot!!", we find that Trump´s right and Trump´s a truth teller.

Trump is right. The socialists have brought nothing but ruin to GB. The socialists have had their say about Trump, so Trump is certainly entitled to express an opinion. GB has been very rude to Trump. Certainly have not seen any British manners, so I assume they have lost them.

Oh, it works all right. Provides jobs for the otherwise unemployable idiot relatives of politicians and their supporters and cronies. None of whom actually use it, just as the cronies of Ovomit, etc. didn´t use Obamacare.

NHS doesn´t work worth a dern for the proles, of course, but they´re the UK´s version of "deplorables" anyway, and who cares?

The Brits don´t have a written constitution to protect them from over-reach by government. WE used to think that we had such a document, but John Roberts proved us wrong on that. May his name be cursed forever.

Everything this author says is a lie. My wife´s grandmother was treated horribly during her last hours in a British hospital. They left her to die in the hallway on a gurney for 36 hour with no water. My mother in law flew to England when she found out her mother had been hospitalized and had to fight the staff to get grandma out of the hallway and into a room. The NHS doesn´t give a flip about their patients. I know that an American hospital would never treat a patient like meat. Is that what the Dems want for us?

It always startles me that the Brits know so little about our health care system. They think that those without insurance are left to die in the gutter. They are completely ignorant of the Hill-Burton act that requires all public hospitals to treat everyone regardless of ability to pay. They are also completely clueless about Medicaid.

AN EXPLOSIVE new book has lifted the lid on the extraordinarily pampered life of luxury enjoyed by Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall. The Prince is accustomed to travelling with his own very specific creature comforts, according to Rebel Prince: The Power, Passion and Defiance of Prince Charles by Tom Bower. The book describes how, before a visit to a friend in North-East England, he despatched his staff ahead a day early with a truck carrying Charles and Camilla’s complete bedrooms, including the Prince’s orthopaedic bed along with his own linen.

IRELAND has hit out at Brussels in an unexpected security broadside, with a number of MEPs declaring “we do NOT support the EU Army”. Dublin and Brussels have grown closer during the past few months with Brexit negotiations siding the Republic of Ireland against their nearest neighbour. But this week a group of Irish MEPs have warned Brussels not to expect unquestioning loyalty from Dublin - especially on the subject of security. The warning was issued in a joint report by MEPs from Fine Gael, Ireland’s ruling government party, called ‘Ireland and the EU: Defending Our Common European Home’. The report said: “We

MOSCOW - Russia’s foreign ministry summoned Britain’s ambassador to the country, Laurie Bristow, for a meeting on Saturday, Russian news agencies reported, citing an unidentified ministry source. Russia is expected to expel British diplomats in retaliation for Prime Minister Theresa May’s decision to kick out 23 Russians, as relations between the two countries crash to a post-Cold War low over an attack involving a military-grade nerve agent on English soil. Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Friday Moscow had already decided on retaliatory measures, which she said Britain would be informed of in the near future.

Shock footage from Lavapies neighbourhood of Madrid shows the region lit up in flames as protestors rebelled at police. Firefighters were brought in to put out flames throughout the neighbourhood after furious protesters torched bins and reaped havoc on the city. Spanish

A teenage asylum-seeker who built a ´Mother of Satan´ nail bomb in the bedroom of his foster home before trying to blow up a tube train is facing a lengthy jail term after he was convicted of attempted murder today.

Seven American soldiers have been killed in a military helicopter crash in western Iraq. The HH-60 Pave Hawk helicopter crashed near al-Qaim, a town in Anbar province close to the Syrian border, yesterday, reportedly after hitting a power line. A U.S. official said that the helicopter had not been on a combat mission, and that there have been no indications that it was brought down by hostile fire. In a statement, U.S. Central Command confirmed that a U.S. military aircraft carrying U.S. service members crashed in western Iraq, but did not give any further details. ´Rescue teams are responding to the scene of the

A report shows North Korea appears to have begun testing a nuclear reactor as recently as late February – as the country´s foreign minister arrived in Sweden to prepare for Kim Jong-un´s historic meeting with Donald Trump. South Korean officials began preparations on Friday for a summit next month with North Korea that is aimed at reducing tensions on the peninsula. Although North Korea´s state media has yet to comment on the pending summits with Moon and Trump, its foreign minister Ri Yong Ho is visiting Sweden for talks with his Swedish counterpart Margot Wallstrom.

Hillary Clinton will bring home a most undesired souvenir from India - a fractured wrist. The former Secretary of State injured her right hand on Tuesday, after slipping in a bathtub at the palace where she was staying in Jodhpur. Doctors were called to the Umaid Bhawan Palace and diagnosed the 70-year-old with a sprain, advising her to rest which forced her to cancel plans to visit the Mehrangarh Fort that evening. But the pain only worsened, and by Wednesday morning she decided to get her hand checked out at Goyal Hospital. Doctors there administered a CT Scan and an X-ray of Clinton´s wrist,

Attorney General Jeff Sessions late Friday night fired former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, a little more than 24 hours before McCabe was set to retire. Sessions announced the decision in a statement just before 10 p.m., noting that both the Justice Department Inspector General and the FBI office that handles discipline had found “that Mr. McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor — including under oath — on multiple occasions.” He said based on those findings and the recommendation of the department’s senior career official, “I have terminated the employment of Andrew McCabe

Two days after a nasty fall in a hotel bathtub left Hillary Clinton with a broken wrist, the former Secretary of State was spotted making the best of a bad situation while continuing her tour of India. Hillary was seen in Jaipur on Thursday where she appeared to be adopting an out-of-sight and out-of-mind approach to her recent injury by wearing a kurta that had been customized to make one sleeve longer than other. To achieve this, the loose and flowing top was wrapped tightly around Hillary´s torso, transforming the once comfortable piece into a more constricting look complete

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe on Thursday made a final pitch to the Justice Department about why he should not be fired just 72 hours before his retirement, leaving Attorney General Jeff Sessions to decide the matter with a deadline rapidly approaching. McCabe did not meet with Sessions, who was traveling Thursday, but with other senior officials, including Scott Schools, the most senior career attorney in the department. He arrived around 1 p.m. and departed four hours later. The decision could be consequential for McCabe´s financial future, as if he is fired, he could lose significant retirement benefits. The

Friday´s firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, based on a report from the Office of Professional Responsibility, is only the beginning of what is likely to be the most explosive series of revelations in American history. Forget Watergate. It will be the distant past once the Inspector General´s reports—there apparently will be more than one—start to come out. This will be the "Gate of Gates." From the FBI and across the intelligence agencies an astonishing number of people are going to find themselves accused, one can safely predict at this point, of some atrocious behavior in

The pedestrian bridge that collapsed at Florida International University´s Miami-Dade campus today, killing several people, was funded with $11.4 million from the U.S. Department of Transportation´s Transportation Investments Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) program. The TIGER program has come under repeated fire for awarding money based on politics rather than merit. (Snip) In 2014, the GAO released a report that was highly critical of how DOT handled the TIGER V grants, which included money for the FIU pedestrian bridge project.

The conference was in 2013, in Jerusalem, and hosted by Shimon Peres, an Israeli leader who spent his career as an indefatigable advocate of peace. It didn´t matter. Hawking joined the BDS movement because he never met a fashionable far-left cause he didn´t like, and Israel-bashing was one of his favorites.
