I went to the docs today, in search of an appointment with an orthopaedic specialist (bad knees).

I got the usual story....well, there's a bit of a wait, a few months....

Then I revealed I had occupational private health insurance.

What a difference! It was like saying the magic word, or giving the secret handshake. In a jiffy, the doc had pulled out the BUPA directory and was pointing out specialists, suggesting I phoned myself to arrange a convenient consultation in a week or two.

So much for universal free health care. The NHS is in terminal decline. :evil:

A few months - better than one and a half years :roll:
 
Some good, some bad.

I like the bits about all the HOT polish women who came here, oh and being the ONLY NATO country to have the baws to uphold Article 5 on the day it was invoked (saving us having 50 years of egg on Europes face), and I like the way our forces are recognised as the muts nuts by the rest of the planet, and I like the way wider Europe does recognise Britain as it's head (and they the torso), and I like the fact they can say we belong to them and possibly mean it one day. I also like the way they've put a one eye'd chin-jutting Borg Crab Man from the planet xZoob (formerly known as Jockanese-land) in charge of the planet to confuse the fcuk out of everyone. I like the fact that after years of knocking shite out of each other in these 4 lands that the UK conquered 1/3rd of the planet, and it seems like we might be setting up for that again. I like the way English has emerged as the international language of communication, and I like that quite a few bits of the planet that aren't run by muppets understand that the planet is our intellectual property.

I don't like the slow shafting given to Forces scaling (double the budget now!), dentists, the NHS, pensioners and the housing market (which is our own fault for not burning down and hunting estate agents with pitch forks 10 years ago). I don't like our failure to address the chav nation either which at least deserves a NS penal battalion for frequent offenders.

I'd like more tits oot for the lads, and less hijabs.

I'd like free booze.

Who's Blair?

;)

You're boring Sven. Take the rose tinted specs out of your skull and just remember one little fact. NHS spending has shot up to levels never guessed at and money is still being pissed up the wall by f**kwit politcos moving deskchairs in pretty patterns around the desks of the Steam Ship Titanic as the iceberg looms into the film.

It all depends on how many is a few, and of course whether the consultant actually puts you on the public waiting list, you may well end up on the hidden one and the wait there can be as bad as it ever was. Blair and his mlot have done what the Tories failed to do with the NHS and destroyed it's purpose. It is now not about curing people and making their lives better but all that matters now is targets.
