Does That Taste Nice, ‘Doctor’?

Someone is biting the hand that fed him, for many years.  And it still sustains him via his French born wife who is an NHS geriatrician.  Let’s hope his dentures fall out.

The good doctor spent the latter part of his life as a state employee.  Why?  We do have a private sector, one that is particularly friendly to unconventional psychiatrists.  Was he just not good enough?    Did he fear that no one would wish to consume the service he was offering?

His American acolytes should plead with The Greatest Doctor in the Entire Universe to come out of retirement and start a whole new career in the good ole U.S. Of A.  Let’s see how he copes with a more open Market.  Given the litigious nature of the US I’d bet my bottom dollar he’d be in court before you could say ‘Class Action Lawsuit’.

Funny how the American airbases here in the UK never had a problem using the NHS to treat US servicemen.  You’d think they’d want the very best for their armed forces.

Or maybe Dull Rumple’s American apostles share his disdain for the armed forces, illustrated perfectly in an ‘essay’ on Gulf War Syndrome which can be found here:

‘Many servicemen – who appear to have joined up imagining that war was a thing of the past, and that armies are now purely ornamental or a form of disguised unemployment.’

The right wing ain’t what it used to be, that’s for sure.
