Isn't that the elephant in the UK's room?

An NHS that we all have to pay for, but whose availability in your hour of need is a pure lottery. In fact, worse than nothing when they string you along for an operation everyone agrees is necessary, week after week, month after month, until it's too late and the cancer has become incurable. If it hadn't been for vapourware promises from the NHS, we would have gone abroad or gone private four months earlier, and my mother might still be alive.

The reason the UK system costs less than the US is because we're just buying the lottery ticket!

a/c for obvious reasons.
