Fox News on the British NHS:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2c-JEx-Kfvc

I work with an American bloke who likes to hold forth on how Fox News is increasingly adopting Nazi propaganda tactics to push their hateful agenda.  I generally smile politely but feel he's exaggerating.  Not after watching this segment, which made me want to scream and punch something at the same time.  Even The Onion couldn't have made this up.

You know, I think I'll avoid that one. It'll only ruin my evening.

Possibly a wise move.  It's an old clip (prior to the current insanity), but even as a non-Brit it's so wrong-headed that it angries up the blood something powerful.

I'm not sure that the current "insanity" is totally without validity though (apart from the ridiculous terrorist angle in that clip) and is a bit misrepresented. Can you really trust a government to run a national health service that continues to bail out rich bankers without any investigation of where the money is going and bows to the big pharma companies who refuse to reduce drug prices without compunction? A country in so much debt it can't hope to afford national health care. It's a bit like trying to convert Russia to capitalism overnight and I fear American Socialism won't be like our own and it will pick and choose who receives the proper care and the rest can lump it. There is a mistrust in general by the US population of Washington, and really, who can blame them.

If you even look at our own Irish health service, it ain't a good advertisement to persuade anyone that it really works and there's only 4 million people here.
