Thread: Interesting way to spin this story, given the fact that the NHS comes second last in

    Overall, proof it is the best healthcare system in the world.

    And that everybody dies…..
    So a National Health Service bears no responsibility for the overall health of the nation's population? Interesting way of looking at it...

    Well said A.

    No-one said there weren't. And I'm sure that's just as much the case in other, better healthcare systems.

    Of course I won't be boring enough to point out that it's anything but free. That would be tedious.
    Ryanair isn't free but it may as well be when compared to other airlines. It’s also ****, you have to sit next to disease-ridden scum hacking their guts up and you stand a reasonable chance of being killed.

    The NHS of the skies

    I didn't say that. I think my point is that you cant polish a turd.

    Which according to your survey, don't exist.

    I wasn't being serious.

    Great for a 45 minute jaunt over to Stansted all the same.

    Yes. That league table is rather like a Premier League table that takes in a range of factors other than the outcomes of games, of course.

    Arsenal would always win in such a system.

    Yeah but too much of that gets into the whole 'preventative' thing, which is a slippery slope. Telling us how much we should be drinking (two pints a week max) and so on.
