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

Daily Mail [UK], by STEPHEN GLOVER

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 2/9/2018 4:09:19 PM

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.

LONDON - Clarks, the British shoemaker and retailer, will return to large-scale manufacturing in the UK for the first time in over a decade when a new factory in southwest England joins plants in Vietnam and India in making its iconic Desert Boot. The 193-year-old firm, which operates in over 90 markets, said the new plant next to its headquarters in Street, Somerset, will have the capacity to make up to 300,000 pairs of Desert Boots a year and will give it shorter lead times.

The workers are set to vote on May 31. The move comes more than a year after 74 percent of the about 2,800 hourly staff at Boeing´s South Carolina plant voted against reut.rs/2x3ah8s joining a

He is the 66th person to have been murdered in London this year. Police have sealed off the scene of the attack and road closures are in place. Scotland Yard said no arrests have been made and enquiries are continuing. This latest attack comes as the Metropolitan Police released a picture of a 28-year-old man who

More than two-thirds of Americans credit President Donald Trump for the country’s healthy economy, a new poll has revealed. The CBS News poll which was released on Sunday shows a sharp partisan divide, with Republicans more likely to give the president positive reviews while Democrats and Independents are not as complimentary. According to the survey, 35 per cent of Americans say Trump’s policies are ‘a great deal’ responsible for the economy. Around the same number - 33 per cent - say the president’s policies are ‘somewhat’ responsible. Nearly one-third say that Trump is either ‘not very’ or ‘not at all’ responsible for the strong

HAWAII´S volcano eruption has entered the Pacific Ocean - forming tiny particles of glass in the air and sending hydrochloric acid into the atmosphere in a threat to health as Kilauea´s activity becomes more severe. Kilauea has been erupting since the start of the month, with a total of 22 fissures having appeared since May 3. One of the most recent, fissure 20, has now split into two separate channels, wth the first now having crossed Highway 137 at the 13-mile marker and entered the ocean.

President Donald Trump demanded to know Sunday when special counsel Robert Mueller was going to ´STOP!´ probing into alleged Russian influence on the presidential election and turn his investigative power onto Hillary Clinton. In a long, bitter Twitter rant the president railed against the cost of the investigation, calling it a ´$20,000,000 Witch Hunt´ that has found ´no Collussion with Russia, No Obstruction, but they aren´t looking at the corruption in the Hillary Clinton Campaign.´ Trump´s words of rage echoed the remarks of his private attorney Rudy Giuliani, who also said the investigation was a waste of $20 million during an interview

There was a depressing familiarity both to Hamas’s suicide protest operation along Gaza’s border with Israel this week and to Israel’s response to it. Hamas’s jihadist regime in Gaza doesn’t have a lot of cards to play in its continuous war against the Jewish state. But, as we have been seeing since Hamas launched its campaign against the border six weeks ago, it does have one card, and no matter how often it plays that card, Israel can’t seem to figure out how to beat it. Hamas’s card is Western hostility to Israel. The Western media, along with the EU and most

Donald Trump has stayed uncharacteristically quiet on Twitter without posting a single tweet about the royal wedding. The President, who is usually especially active on the social media network early in the day, did not tweet anything all morning about the nuptials between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, which ended at 9.00am ET. Rumors swirled about whether Trump would be invited to the wedding at Windsor Castle in Berkshire, but he was eventually left off the guest list, along with other political leaders. Prominent figures who made the cut included Oprah Winfrey, George and Amal Clooney and the Beckhams. Other A-listers including Idris

Julian Assange´s guest list in the seven weeks leading up to the release of hacked Democratic party emails by WikiLeaks has been revealed, and includes RT reporters, German hacker Andy Müller-Maguhn and documentary maker Michael Moore. In total 80 people visited Assange at the Ecuadorian embassy in the summer of 2016, which was around the time when Assange announced he was going to release emails from Hilary Clinton´s US presidential campaign. Others included Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Žižek and prominent WikiLeaks supporters like British designer Vivienne Westwood and left-wing journalist John Pilger, according to visitor logs obtained by the Guardian and Focus Ecuador.

After about thirteen years of being a loyal customer of Netflix, the time has come for me to say goodbye. (Snip) Given that I’m a conservative, one might be inclined to believe my choice to leave Netflix is predicated upon the company’s most recent decision to partner with Barack and Michelle Obama’s new company, called “Higher Ground Productions,” to produce loads of new content. And in a way, I guess that’s correct. But this choice by Netflix has not alone led me to this decision.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer fumed Tuesday over the Trump administration´s "outrageous" decision to exclude Democrats from an upcoming meeting in which Justice Department officials will give House Republicans documents related to the FBI´s investigation into potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Republican lawmakers had been demanding DOJ release the classified documents for months. “The only thing more outrageous than this meeting occurring at all is the fact that it’s now partisan,” the New York Democrat said. “It is crystal clear that Chairman Nunes’ intent is to interfere with the investigation, and Speaker Ryan is allowing it to

Former Attorney General Eric Holder on Monday urged Department of Justice (DOJ) and FBI officials to "simply say no" to President Trump´s demand for an expanded investigation into his claims of FBI wrongdoing as it relates to his campaign. "More DOJ norms being eroded. Trump-a SUBJECT of the investigation-wants access to material related to the inquiry," Holder tweeted. (Snip) His latest criticism of the president came as Trump and his allies have claimed, without evidence, that an FBI informant spied on his campaign for political purposes.

NFL club owners are considering potential 15-yard penalties for kneeling during the national anthem among ways of coping with a backlash over player protests, Sports Illustrated reported Tuesday. According to a story on the magazine´s website, owners set aside three hours to talk about the anthem issue, which President Donald Trump elevated into a major controversy last year. Ideas to handle players kneeling during the anthem included allowing home teams to decide if players should be out of the locker room during the pre-game playing of The Star-Spangled Banner or not.If players are on the sideline, then 15-yard
