"But I will acknowledge at this point, and I suppose English people are a bit different from you, because instead of truck we say lorry, instead of elevator we say lift, and instead of letting people die in the street we have free health care."Under Great Britain's NHS elderly patients routinely, and often erroneously, fall under the purview of the Liverpool Care Pathway (LCP), often referred to by critics as the "Death Pathway". The LCP is nothing less that a health care rationing system that all too often sentences patients to death who are merely suffering from dehydration or have been over medicated. On the issue of the quality of care under NHS, the British Patients Association has recently issued a report in which it was very critical of health care under the NHS. The Telegraph reports that;
"In the last six years, the Patients Association claims hundreds of thousands have suffered from poor standards of nursing, often with 'neglectful, demeaning, painful and sometimes downright cruel' treatment. The charity has disclosed a horrifying catalogue of elderly people left in pain, in soiled bed clothes, denied adequate food and drink, and suffering from repeatedly cancelled operations, missed diagnoses and dismissive staff."
Now, health care which is described as "sometimes downright cruel" probably does not bother Mr. Brand since he is known to engage in cruelty for his own gratification. Take for example when the 'British dirt bag' took part in a BBC radio broadcast on Oct. 18, 2008, in which he left repeated messages on the answering machine of British actor Andrew Sachs describing in obscene detail his sexual exploits with the actor's granddaughter. Brand even joked on the air that Sachs might commit suicide when he hears the messages. Even worse, at the time of this cruel and tasteless 'joke', Sachs' wife Melody was in hospital recovering from hip surgery.
Of course, the left is never concerned about the character content of the individuals who support their designs, but it is very telling to the rest of us how often their supporters expose themselves to be complete reprobates.
