    £27 million in aid sent to a band in Africa, yes a band, yet our NHS is on it's knees and there are more people living on the streets than ever before.Nice to know our government has its priorities set right.

    As has been said before, this isn't an either or situation. The government can well afford to fund the NHS and overseas aid properly but chooses not to. Why anyone is surprised is beyond me: they promised austerity and that's what we are getting. Still, the extra £350m a week, as promised, will make everything better.

    clearly the NHS is not working and privatisation is the only way to improve services. Well that will be response by some once they've broken it beyond repair but if you think private healthcare is the answer just look at the cost of our private utility companies and train companies. Costs of train journeys have increased by 50% in just a decade. Arriva trains which is owned by the German government uses the profits creamed from its U.K activities to invest in the German rail network. Other companies pay large dividends to share holders and provide a terrible service at vastly inflated prices.

    Or watch Michael Moores documentary Sicko on how the US health system ( the template that is going to be used ) actually works !

    That's exactly what will happen........ And it's so bloody simple to achieve.

    Far to many people use the service the NHS is no longer fit for purpose.
