Thank you for your cooperation.

Tao, I wish things were that easy when it comes to this particular topic. As long as there are people that want to tell you how to live 'your' life, but don't have any intentions of doing 'your' dying for you, there will always be problems.

It is your right to live or die as you chose.

ps this evening I think I'll put a block on receiving any more post from this worthless debate.
I'll second this. It is a worthless debate!

Those with money can go private. those with no money can go dead...........in practice even those who can afford to go 100% private will mix & match via the NHS. Hell, even the next PM (Right winger, beleived to be worth IRO £30 million) used the NHS to treat / provide ongoing care for his disabled child - and that's from a fellla whose first policies I suspect will include legalising the trading of Grandmothers & Orphans and returning small boys to the Chimney cleaning business........kinda like a Republican, except with a knowledge of geography and history

However I will concede that Dentistry (NHS or Private) has not really caught on over here
Maybe that was an unfair statement from me. The problem with medical care and insurance is how much it costs. Why is it just about the only thing that keeps going up in cost as much as it does year after year? How many years will it be before only the richest 1% will be covered?

Okay, wrap it up, Jiffy Lube. I'm going to close the thread in a little while.

This thread has outlasted any possible reason for continuing. Everything that needed to be said was said long ago. It's drifted so far off-course that it's run well onto the rocks, so this is the end.

Thread closed.
