Polly asks:

Does that include the right to make the wrong choice?

Yes, it's called freedom.

Is it me, or is Polly there, actually, really, defending the closure of hospitals? Is this a first? I thought she was an Arthur Scargill of schools'n'ospitals. Or is it just that this one she has so graciously been round seems empty and the council are bastard tories, and the locals are bastard tories, so it has to go?

Tim adds: I thought it was funny her bashing a union as well: Unison.

She moans whatever happens. Just a typical socialist, embittered because nobody else has delivered the shangri-la world she thinks she deserves.

"typical socialist, embittered because nobody else has delivered the shangri-la world she thinks she deserves."

Oh, I think she has the 'world' she thinks she deserves, at least the part of it that's her personal space.

It's the world the rest of us inhabit that she wants to 'order' according to her 'superior moral judgment'.

Polly sez:

...despite waiting times having fallen to a seven-week average in most places...

Average? Most places?

Dear God. Does she have no idea how nightmarishly bad that number would be just as a worst case, never mind an average? I doubt that the average homeless person in the US ever has to wait as long as seven days to see a doctor. Seven hours, sure, if it's nothing too urgent.

Seven weeks. In an industrialized nation? I had no idea it was anything like that bad. Seven weeks! That's all you need to know, right there: The system is an utter, hopeless, abject, catastrophic failure. God only knows how you could get rid of it without a sort of health care equivalent of the Year Zero, but get rid of it you must. What strange madness could possibly drive anyone to defend a monstrosity like that?

Jesus wept! And that's the paradise the Democrats want to plunge us into.
