    The privatization of the NHS is on the way...just like folk warned
    every Tory voter should spend time in Hell for this.

    once you have private hospitals and rule by corporations, it's DEATH for the chronically ill who ain't well off.
    More bloody reason for Scotland to ditch the Union and rebuild Hadrian's freakin' Wall! Though we'll extend the courtesy to rebuild the wall a bit south of Liverpool if the Northern English wish ;)

    It totally stinks.

    However, from our perspective does it really matter? We're not getting any treatment anyway. So can it really get any worse for us?

    that's what I was wondering? Perhaps if/when your disease is recognized, things will get better?

    It means the end of the NHS, that's what.
    Eventual privatization of UK healthcare.
    How many of us can afford or would be taken on by a private insurance scheme?
    How many of us get free or cheap presciptions for pain killers etc?
    And..in general, what it means ot the people of the entire UK, like our families.

    38 degrees are working hard on this issue. If you want to help, by all the means they suggest, check out the site. Here's the link to the legal review of the Health and Social Care bill http://www.38degrees.org.uk/page/content/NHS-legal-advice/
    There's lots more on that site.

    Apologies to non-UK members, this video will only be watchable from the UK, but for the most affected, even business Tzar Sir Gerry Robinson thinks the reforms are a crock of poo. He explores the issues in a half-hour Panorama program from last Monday.

    We are slowly but surely entering into an era of neo-feudalism. All the letter writing and petition signing is completely useless. Nothing short of violent revolution will fix the problem, at this stage of the game.
