can't be bothered to read that but I do know that private medicine and NHS obviously exist side by side- the same doctors and consultants do both. Also there is an exodus of trained staff from the UK and they have received massive subsidised training from us (it costs £360,000 to train a doctor for example)and there is this

Sorry about that old chap, I guess I was a bit distracted as my highly polluting car, constructed completely of ivory, was playing up that day, and I couldn't get to my weekly fox hunt on time.
