Apparently there is a huge row brewing in the States over Obama's plans to introduce elements of a socialised medical care system. The Republicans are citing the NHS as a devisive, grossly flawed and unfair system that denies people treatment. One of the adverts says that if Prof Stephen Hawking was British he would be dead because he would not be treated by the NHS. I know, I know, clearly they don't though! Sorry, no link, I was driving along the M62 today and heard it on Radio 2 Jeremy whatisname.
