Well I read it. Bloody atrocious. She would have been better off in a Third World Hospital.

Down here we treat our pets better than Anna was treated.

I also read it and am quite disgusted.
It is a symptom of all government departments they are never the servant of the people but are always trying to be the master.
Look at that disgusting episode in Sheffield with the tree felling by the local council.

A very hard read, but lightened by the indomitable spirit of Anna Raccoon. I must confess that the treatment in Spanish hospitals is a lot better, so far.

PW I read an account of the tree felling episode in Sheffield but not sure where I came across it. I was amazed at the process.

Turning the "rozzers" out at sunup to terrify the citizens is something you expect from totalitarian regimes. The "boss rozzer" [Chief Constable?] needs a solid foot in the backside from whoever he/she/it is ultimately responsible to for allowing it to happen.

The "family silver", "envy of the world", "jewel in the crown of the British welfare state", ...

To those who believe the state ownership of the means of production and distribution is a good thing: Welcome to your world.

And 52% of the country just voted to send 55,000 healthcare workers, that's 5% of total staff, 10% of doctors and 4% of nurses, home, or make them feel very unwelcome, or somewhere in between ...

To the 52%: Your vote's impact on top of the above hasn't even got started yet, so, incredible though it may seem, there's worse to come.

Pray for "soft" Brexit and the EEA - or wear a cyanide capsule around your neck for when your time comes.

I read all I could of her account and it is as AussieD said- third world- treatment in a first world country. Government run health systems are about rationing money first, care next, talent, ability and dedication afterwards. The lesser levels ration compassion, humanity and the main thing-employment as a last resort. From Anna's account, a large percentage of these workers deserve to be "sent home" or at least made to feel bad or something in between.

SoD?

As I recall the details of Anna's recent tour of Purgatory one of the few brights spots was a "Filipino nurse" was she not? And the doctor 'Anna blockaded in the concourse' "did not know English very well" but he did manage to get stuff done?

So Loz sounds to me more like "the 52%" saved your bacon so far.

JK,

Err, if the 52% had their way there would've been no Filipino nurse or poor English speaking doctor.

If the 52% had had their way she'd have got a "yeah, whatever, talk to the hand coz the face ain't listenin'" from the nurse and the doctor would've been on strike.

Maybe you got your 48% and 52% crossed?

Total and utter blx! You plumb new depths of Pythonesque 'agit-prop', SoD.

We voted to leave the EU - no more, no less. The details of how that is completed are yet to be decided and, obviously, much will depend on how the Europeans re-act during the negotiations. Obviously, if they expel Brits living over there (very, VERY unlikely) then maybe Europeans will be sent back to Europe but not otherwise.

Your constant re-enactment of 'Cpl. Jones' rushing round in circles shouting, "Don't panic!" is becoming tiresome. Perhaps you could just wait until the facts of the deal are spelled out before you call for the smelling salts!

Sounds like the EU dunnit?

Very few voted to have anyone expelled at all. 77% of those who voted leave expressly said they didn't. 84% of the total population ditto. Which leaves 9% of those who voted remain wanting people expelled!
Believe it or not there are plenty of other reasons for wanting out of the EU. Why do we want Brussels dictating the terms on which we trade, both internally and externally? Why do we want to pay them for ordering us about? Why do we want to be associated with de-stabilising Ukraine and hence provoking Russia?
And getting back to immigrants working in the NHS, most of them come from outside the EU.

"Very few voted to have anyone expelled at all. 77% of those who voted leave expressly said they didn't. 84% of the total population ditto. Which leaves 9% of those who voted remain wanting people expelled!"

The Jerries didn't vote for the final solution, but they got it - because they voted for the Nazi party. Lots of "We didn't think that was what it was all about, we didn't know what was going on", blah, blah, etc., etc., after the event, of course.

People need to take responsibility for the ideas, possible consequences, and proxies that the organisations they support have associated with them. Justin Welby made rather a good speech about this recently: -

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/11/18/welby-time-to-stop-saying-isil-has-nothing-to-do-with-islam/

But let's cut to the quick: With hindsight we could go back to the Jerries of the time who are still around and ask them "Now you know, would you have voted for the Nazi party?" You'd probably be down to the 9% who say yes as being those who were in favour of the final solution at the time, and the rest would say no.

So let's fast forward and ask the D&N leadership: -

"If Brexit means, due to the politics of the situation that develops, chucking out the 3+ million EU immigrants who are currently living in the UK, would you still vote Brexit? Yes/No."

And "It won't come to that" or "It's hypothetical" isn't an answer.

SoD

I say again, it will ONLY come to that if the Europeans throw out the millions of Brits who live there.

So you tell me, is it likely to happen?

And can you please stop smearing me with the word "Nazi"!

"Godwin's Law" seems to be broken frequently these days.

Quite so, Whiters, and it is ironic that it occurs in support of an organisation with the democratic standards of Venezuela!

"I say again, it will ONLY come to that if the Europeans throw out the millions of Brits who live there."

So two wrongs do make a right then?

If they do tariffs, then so we? Even if our doing tariffs harms us as much as them?

If they do final solution, then so do we? Are you critical of the UK for not retaliating with a final solution against Germans living in the UK during WWII then?

"'Godwin's Law' seems to be broken frequently these days."

The accusation thereof being one of the auto-responses from the new product-improved, box fresh, neo-fascist movement's "handbook of tick-box retorts".

Hey, Dude, I am very, very grateful for that link - thanks.
