I refer, of course, to our less than wonderful National Health Service which, just like last winter, and the winter before, and the winter before that, and so on ad infinitum, is close to chaos. Of course, finding a solution to its problems is harder than finding the square root of -1. That difficulty is easily avoided by all those 'sillies' who, rather than think, simply shriek louder and louder that more money must be poured into a bottomless cavern. As Mr. Ben Ramanauskas of the Taxpayers' Alliance points out, it's not the amount of money that is spent on the NHS but the way it is spent!
Moreover, a report by the National Audit Office found that as funding for the NHS has increased, productivity has decreased [my emphasis]. The head of the National Audit Office said: “Over the last ten years, there has been significant real growth in the resources going into the NHS, most of it funding higher staff pay and increases in headcount. The evidence shows that productivity in the same period has gone down, particularly in hospitals.”
It is perfectly obvious, in fact it has been obvious for decades, that the current system, a perfect example of silly socialism, needs changing radically. Private enterprise and insurance systems are required with competition between suppliers to be essential. As I have mentioned before, many a time and oft', the very best aid to a good health is good food. Without food we would all die slowly and painfully. So why haven't the silly socialists insisted that the supply of food should become a state-run enterprise? They could tell us all that food will be provided free of charge. Does anyone think they could run that better than the constantly competing supermarkets?
Of course, changing the NHS will take an enormous amount of time and will involve re-educating the 'the peeps' in the new system but unless we get on with it that great, swollen, state-run behemoth will swallow us all!
