bollocks in a word healthcare is expensive and with people living a lot longer your going to need rather a lot of staff to look after them.
NHS provides universal coverage at a cost per head a lot less than the US system that fails to cover everyone and often leads to personal bankruptcys.
Most of the Ideas to "improve" the NHS seem to think Charging and privitisation will make things better.
One word RAILTRACK the Britsh Goverment does not have a good record of pulling off big ideas.

The RSM and various other NCO's seemed very agitated.
maybe they should look into counselling?

At the back of one of the houses a young woman was kneeling on the stones, poking a stick up the leaden waste-pipe which ran from the sink inside and which I suppose was blocked. I had time to see everything about her - her sacking apron, her clumsy clogs, her arms reddened by the cold. She looked up as the train passed, and I was almost near enough to catch her eye."

The Pentagon's role in the US defense industry and generous distribution of Tax payer pork is accepted without a qualm by most, though it would have The Founders rotating in their graves. Chaotic US healthcare as it sits is beggaring The Republic more surely than going abroad to slay dragons despite our best efforts to squander trillions there.
Coming back to culture Brits perpetually grumble about the mediocre NHS. Septic seniors cling to their socialized Medicare program like its a lifebelt and are understandably fearful of change. But I can't imagine the French or Swiss meekly accepting the necessity of being fleeced to the point of bankruptcy by health providers because their government is too compromised to rein them in, the result would be civil unrest.That's the most foul, cruel, and bad-tempered rodent you ever set eyes on!

When the big killers were infectious diseases then longer term diseases such as Cancer or heart disease would have been less of an issue (and pretty much untreatable) - and remember lifespans were shorter. Also people were physically more active and fast food was limited to fish and chips....

Why are employed people healthier than unemployed, and all significantly healthier than the professionally non employed, a class of untermensch now some 9 million strong that's only really come into existance since 1945.

"If a terrorist organisation wanted to knock out the moral compass of Britain, all they'd have to do is to kill 100 celebrities at random. The entire country would have an instant nervous breakdown."
