The Belfast Newsletter 29th April 2014, in a report entitled: Calamities abroad put our problems into perspective, suggests that there is a political denial of the need to ration health care, and no willingness to lead.
….”There are extreme demands on our healthcare as the population ages, yet a general refusal to accept any sort of NHS rationing, such as prescription charges…..
Too true. Sometimes politicians need to lead, and if they fail the situation gets worse. This worsening situation exists not only in out Health Ser vices, but also in our political system (disengagement and disillusion at both national and Regional levels in Wales) and when considering the environment against intensive agriculture and cheap food. If the price of food rises the price of housing probably goes down! If politicians are unwilling to lead, then we may get a press led society… Until social media such as NHSreality gets a hearing..
