Lockdowns were sold as a means of preserving access to healthcare. They turned out to be exactly the opposite.
But the doctors and nurses danced so nicely on Tik Tok. Should we clap now?
I spoke to a taxi driver recently. He told me his NHS appointment had been cancelled that very morning as he sat in the waiting-room.
He was waiting to have his heart stopped and restarted.
Reset, in effect.
This was because in January when he had his "booster" he was immediately rushed to hospital under threat of a massive stroke. Or so staff told him after forcing 8 pills down him to save his life.
The poor man was terrified - he said his fear is that they'll stop his heart & it won't start again.
A reasonable fear imho.
I asked him "You're not gonna have anymore Covid jabs are you?"
"Not a chance!!! I've had the bl00dy thing twice anyway too!!".
The NHS will be dealing with 100s of 1000s who they force or pressured to be jabbed and now creating a tsunami of injury.
It must be a unique series of events in human history.
The modelers were only part of the problem. I blame the medical community for cowardice and greed resulting in the worst possible care during the pandemic.
My mother in law fell and hit her head on the sidewalk in Brighton a couple of weeks ago (less than 2 miles from hospital). A family member called emergency services to get an ambulance and the dispatcher said it would be over 8 hours before they could get there so best just to stuff her in a car and bring her in.
How many new permanent ICU capable beds were deployed? was it none?
All those free testing sites and shots but no beds for the "pandemic emergency" nearly 3 years later... that's fun.
Socialism is a great mechanism for making everyone equally poor & miserable ... unless, of course, you are a sociopath -- then you rise to a leadership position and become king of the parasites. Socialized medicine is a great mechanism for making everyone equally sick and dead. Why intelligent people would ever trust their heath & well-being to such a system is bewildering.
Here in the center of Wokesville USA (Portland OR) I worked as a microbiologist and PCR tech. After decades of excellence and a lab culture that enticed many people to want to work with us, the whole thing flipped. Experienced people fired, incoherent rules imposed and never sunsetted as new information trickled out, leading now an alarming exodus of well trained staff. The mass psychosis of the managers and physicians has turned it into a shitshow. Things are NOT going back to normal for at least a generation IMO.
Well, the twat Johnson said his in last speech that without the lockdowns, the nhs queues would be much longer. They still don't get it.
That said, my energy bill quote today was £12000 for a year. About 4 times what it was last year. About 6 times what it was 10 years ago. But if I buy a new kettle, I will save £10.
These people deserve everything that will come to them.
"There are currently nearly 2,900 people who have been waiting more than two years, but NHS England said the vast majority of these were either people who had chosen to wait or were complex cases that needed more time to asses."
Translation: "Why won't THEY just die already??? All of this whining is very tiresome and cuts into my nurse dancing TikToks!!!"
Another clear sign the supposed "Health Care" industry is nothing more than a grift disguised as something positive. More so when you involve government and the big corporate side. The only remaining honest health care is to be found at the local level if you are fortunate enough to have a small / local provider. Even then, many have joined the Branch Covidian Cult led by Fauci and his ilk.
Sometime in the future I hope to see the higher ups in all this madness held accountable. I won't hold my breath. Until then, pray, plan, prepare and RESIST.
With delays like that, a virus with a 99.7% survival rate would be long gone before one would need to be exterminated by a respirator in an ICU.
Same problem here in the States. Waiting 6-8 months for appointments and procedures . One particular appointment scheduled at a large medical center for summer of 2023…Absolute chaos.
This was the goal of obamacare! corrupt and ruin healthcare and the insurance industry and to not only control the masses with "free" healthcare and to make them healthcare junkies (trusting pharma pushing docs rather than losing weight and eating healthy), but to weaponize healthcare for the govt's own nepharious use.
Your chart of rising NHS waiting lists, also coincides with the period of TOY TOWN TORIES running Britain into the ground, doing their utmost to ship in as much of the 3rd world as possible, which has obviously further damaged their ability to think straight. They couldn't run a bath. An 80 seat majority of gutless, clueless numbskulls.
And many people have died as a result of these counter-productive measures the NHS, and its equivalents in all the first-world nations, took these last few years.
Should I stop banging my pots every evening now?
