Good articles on Radio 4 yesterday about getting the NHS up to speed. You cannot just magic enough trained GPS or Dentists for that matter. The government needs NOW to start the process for 10 years time.All the social contacts have deteriorated, but all our public services still assume they are as strong as ever.
E.g. the concept of the NHS is "I don't mind paying for you when you genuinely need it, because I know you'll do the same for me" - even someone who still believes in the first part cannot rationally still believe in the second. Or the concept of the police is "99.9% of us know right from wrong, you can just deal with the deviants". And so on...
Should there be a genuine crises I predict all the diverse sub communities would close ranks around their own and leave anyone who believes in diversity on the outside!
This morning was a news bite about just how many Drs working for the NHS are not from the UK or Eu . Only 85% are UK citizens.
