In defence of the NHS

I’m increasingly amazed at the visceral nature of the opposition to President Obama’s health care plans. Are people really saying that they view with equanimity the prospect of large numbers of their fellow-Americans (fellow-humans) suffering and/or dying because they can’t afford to pay for health care? Having recently undergone an operation in an NHS hospital, I can vouch for the excellent skill, care and cleanliness of the facility where I was treated. Give me ‘socialised medicine’ any time!

  1. Yes, I thought I caught an undercurrent of “eeeeh, that’s socialist, that is! Bad president, BAD!” or something.

    How very strange.
