Some people will buy any old shit.

In my mind its not quite as simple as the private sector just paying for the public sector. The services the public sector provide enable the private sector to be successful. No one would be buying much if it wasnt for roads, healthcare, education etc etc. A private sector worker gives their money to provide these services. A public sector worker gives their time to provide these services.
Its often a good idea to try and view the world through something other than the lens of money.
From the article "In the event that any patient requires future treatment all clinical decisions and treatment are based on diagnostic tests undertaken at the time of admittance and as required rather than from historical records"
Having just read the BBC article - its a shame theyre not allowed to just tell him to piss off or to recreate the image himself. He's just looking for attention.
Odd how some people find it harder to grasp that reality is a chaotic mess of forces vying for attention/power, than one massive conspiracy where every element of life is controlled by a mysterious yet all powerful force.

Whilst i dont disagree that there are definite efficiency savings to be made in govt. I would be more careful with my words. What your opinion of waste is may differe from the majority. For example I can bet there are those out there which think spending money on universal healthcare is a waste (obviously cos they can afford their own team of specialists).
Its subsidised & regulated. If (for instance) water was treated as a free market, you can bet those counties with huge resources would charge a lot more than 0.001p per litre for it.
as it is, we are a country not a selection of little regions and that means sharing stuff about for best effect.
People in the city shouldnt expect an inexhaustible supply of fresh water as clearly theres no space to store it all. That and fresh fruit n veg, why the hell should they get all that when clearly its the folks in the countryside who grow it (well a small percentage of it)
Oh and electricity... why the hell should city folk use so much when dont host the power stations.
I believe the independence argument is based more on self determination than economics? (though im not scottish so dont know (or care) about this). I also dont know what Alex Neil thinks about independence.
As it is though, theyre not independent and so its down to the MPs to fight for more cash for their regions.
Though I would have thought Welsh MPs would be kicking up more of a fuss, didnt someone figure out that they were getting squat?
You were onto something until you started having a pop at the human rights act.... you shouldnt believe everything you read in the Daily Mail.
There is nothing controversial in the act and before you start railing against it you probably ought to understand the act in detail... given they are rights that apply to you also.
