  1. My first response to that snippet was ‘Yes. And…?’

    Then I clicked the link.

    I thought the purpose of the NHS was to save the patients..?

  2. So, in true Guardian manner, we can now make a case that the NHS is responsible for 5% of traffic accidents & 5% of deaths on the roads. Also the largest contributor to vehicle caused polution. It’s downright MURDER! I tell you. It should be abolished.
    Think of the children!

I’ve seen parts of the county where even the sunlight is 10 years behind present.
