Help prop it up? Isn't that like objecting to taxes that prop up the Government? The travails of the NHS are not to be blamed on Europe, FFS. The health care in France and Germany is far superior to our shambles.
So how come Britain is widely reckoned as having the best health care in the world, and a free one at that? True it does have its failings but most of them are due to a disgraceful lack of funding by the government which has meant many hospitals having to be closed and the ones still left very often under-staffed, which means staff are working under tremendous pressure, and when that happens that's when mistakes get made. Edinburgh now only has four hospitals, the Royal, the Western, the Sick Kids and the Royal Edinburgh, which is ridiculous for a city of nearly half a million people.
Aileen was not 'blaming' anyone! She merely pointed out that the £350m we hand over to the EU every week could be better spent!
That's exactly what I meant Caz. Also I'd be interested to know exactly what the EU does with that weekly £350m, or is it the case that it simply disappears into the black hole that is the coffers of Brussels?
