There is considerable ire over here concerning Trump's NHS-going-broke tweet. 

It is true that it has some financial concerns, but it is not on its knees yet.  It is only limping slightly.
There are proposals to cure the limp in discussion as I post this. 

The NHS march was as much about keeping our borders open, so we can continue to import NHS workers after brexit, as about fundung.  Unless the film was very carefully and deliberately edited to mislead, you could clearly see the other placards - and that changes the meaning/context of the rest.

Incidentally the financial problems (minor ones) started when Maggie Thatcher changed the NHS's internal systems.  (Maggie T was a Right Wing Prime minister by the way.)

Our life expectancy beats that of the US - HANDS DOWN, so it is easy to get upset with Trump's tweet.

But, it is not his fault.  He only made the error of believeing Fox News's rubbish!  You can't blame the man for that.

I used to watch Fox.  I firmly believe it is important to look at politics from both sides.  Not being American I assumed them better informed, less hyperbollically partisan and considerably more honest than this.  I only found out how big a bunch of liars they really were when their porkies concerned a British system, which I already knew the truth about.

Fox has been hard to access over here for some time, but I made the effort. 

                                          No more!   Lying sc***ags!

Can anyone suggest an alternative Right Wing news site?  I'm fine for the left side, but don't want to blinker myself by only watching them.
Absence of proof is not proof of absence.

Universal health care just shows how "Christian" the UK is compared to the devote"Christians" of the USA that seem to have forgotten all about Jesus and the good Samaritan,all for the profits of the money lenders!!!!!!!!
