It’s no longer just a theory. We are forced to pay taxes for the billions that get poured into the NHS so the NHS can dictate how we live. Obamacare will do the same thing in the USA, if it hasn’t already started.
(Tipped by Katabasis on Twitter) The NHS has now declared that those who pay tax plus extra taxes into its bloated wasteful system – the smokers, drinkers, and so on – are going to be refused treatment unless they become compliant drones and live exactly as directed.
Since the annual death toll racked up by the medical profession far exceeds anything smoking, drinking or obesity could ever manage, being refused treatment might not be such a terrible thing. And yet… I for one have paid many times over for my rare and brief incursions into their territory. If I had been billed per visit instead of paying through taxes I’d be a hell of a lot richer than I am now.
Well, no, I wouldn’t be a hell of a lot richer, but I would be a hell of a lot drunker. I’d be on top-shelf excellent whiskies every time.
When money is extorted under threat of violence as some kind of ‘insurance’ that you can never, ever claim on, that is a protection racket. That is what Devon NHS have now quite openly become. You must pay for the ‘service’ but there is no service for you. Only for their gang members. The drones. Since they live as directed, they will never be diagnosed with anything but will feel pretty silly one day, lying in a hospital bed, dying of nothing.
This makes an eventual class action lawsuit inevitable. It won’t be just the smokers and drinkers and round people either. Like a bacon sarnie now and then? They are coming for you too because they claim you want them to. This class action, when (not if, not any more) it finally explodes into the legal system, will include pretty much everyone apart from the utterly indoctrinated drones. Who are dying out because they believe every word of the verbal Puritan shite that passes for ‘health’ advice. They drink masses of water and take in no salt. That’s a quick death, and not a pleasant one.
Finally we will have a use for those ‘no win, no fee’ lawyers. I don’t like them but they exist, we might as well use them.They are weapons of the enemy, set up to force us into compliance by enabling the Perpetually Offended and the Compo Collectors to sue any of us for the slightest thing, whether it’s really our fault or not. I have always been a big fan oif turning the enemy’s guns on themselves.
Our case is based on the forced extraction of money to pay for a service that refuses to treat us unless we live our lives as their obedient slaves. Devon NHS have publically declared our case proven before we even talk to a lawyer. A no win, no fee lawyer could make a fortune in days out of this one. All he/she/it needs is 10% of the reclaimed taxation and that would be substantial for just one smoker. Imagine 10% of the reclaimed taxes for all the smokers, drinkers etc…
Hell, offer them 90%. 99%. 100%. It’s not about the money (for me, anyway), it’s about smashing the protection gang. I don’t care if the lawyer gets obscenely rich. I just want the NHS destroyed. It’s Frankenstein’s monster now, it has turned on its paymasters and bitten very deep into the hands that feed it.
A health service based on competition would not discriminate against anyone. Some providers might refuse to take smoker money but there will be others who will and competition between them will keep prices reasonable. Sure, I fully expect that smokers will pay a little more than the compliant drones but I really don’t think it would be unaffordable. No business wants to price itself out of the market. Take the tax off tobacco and any smoker could easily afford private healthcare. Especially when the companies providing it find out that really, most of us cost no more than the healthies and all the ‘smokers are riddled with the lumps’ stories are just hype.
Smokers will pay a little more because the companies will know they can get away with it, not because we actually cost more, overall, to look after. The same is true of drinkers and roundies. It’ll still be a lot cheaper than paying all the taxes to those pompous suits who want to tell us how we must live. Plus paying for their layers of management morons and all the plush offices and named parking spaces.
Those competing companies will not waste time or money on ASH or ‘stoptober’ or ‘drinkaware’ or any of the rest of the nonsense because they will know that any attempt to do so will send all their customers elsewhere. They will also fire crap employees instead of covering up their blunders and targeting the whistleblowers.
So bring it on, Devon NHS. Let’s have the rest of the NHS doing the same.
It’ll make the lawyers rich but for once it will be worth it.
