The country England, which used to own America, has a terrible system of health care where people pay a bit more in taxes so that when they get sick, they can walk into a doctor’s office or a hospital to receive treatment. This is how Empires fall! But supposedly English people “like” their National Death Laboratory (NHS) and simply do not care for these American Republican politicians lambasting it on the telly. Will the lobsterbacks invade America again? Yes. No. No, it’s not worth much anymore.
The invasion has already begun. According to limey operative “Tom,” England has mobilized its machines of war, on Twitter:
[S]eems like there’s a mini riot fomenting in England right now against the Americans, for bashing the National Health Service…
#welovetheNHS on Twitter. If you know about Twitter.
Twitter is for savages.
But the “dismay” has reached the highest levels of the British Diplomatic Corps, reports the communist Guardian empathy-wrapper!
As myths and half-truths circulate, British diplomats in the US are treading a delicate line in correcting falsehoods while trying to stay out of a vicious domestic dogfight over the future of American health policy. [...]
The degree of misinformation is causing dismay in NHS circles. Andrew Dillon, chief executive of the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (Nice), pointed out that it was utterly false that Kennedy would be left untreated in Britain: “It is neither true nor is it anything you could extrapolate from anything we’ve ever recommended to the NHS.”
The person who said that about Ted Kennedy was Chuck Grassley, the leading Republican negotiator in this health care debate.
Bipartisan bill on Obama’s desk by October!…??
