Another bunch of 'child care workers' and politicians

who need the acquaintance of tar and feathers:
PARENTS are being threatened with having their children taken into care after questioning doctors’ diagnoses or objecting to their medical care.

John Hemming, a Liberal Democrat MP, who campaigns to stop injustices in the family court, said: “Very often care proceedings are used as retaliation by local authorities against ‘uppity’ people who question the system.”

Cases are emerging across the UK:
Britain, what the hell have you let happen to you?

They let their government disarm them so they no longer have the option of shooting the bastards.

At the start of the British national health service, lot's of concessions were made to the special interest groups to get them to go into it.

Among those was making the doctors the gate keepers for anyone receiving medical treatment: you hurt your back and want to see an osteopath, you can get it free if your doctor says so, or he can send you to his pal for him to use a knife...

Now here's the nasty bit

for a long time, it was a CRIMINAL OFFENCE not to follow a doctor's instructions!

They haven't forgotten that little power trip.

Let me just remind people in the US of the successes of British nationalised industry:

The Post Office running a telephone system where it was an offence to connect any phone that they didn't supply or extension cable that they didn't fit. In the end, many of the financial institutions threatened to pull out of London as the telecoms system was so out dated and unreliable.

The central electricity generating board: power-cuts every single year in the 1970s while some union or other went on strike.

British Rail: Their pork pies said it all (shelf life of about 3 months without refrigeration)

British leyland cars, producers of the austin allegro, complete with ground breaking square steering wheel.

The national coal board; home of a union which decided what government the electorate should have

British ship builders: gave the Koreans the start they needed to take over the world's ship building from the tyne and the wear yards in Britain.

British steel....

Why the Brits think they can trust the state to do anything after that lot, has still to be explained to me.
