Last week’s story here that Britain’s National Health Service euthanizes 130,000 elderly folks a year is no surprise.
Last year, a major report cited the socialist health-care agency for neglecting the elderly under its care. The neglect was so severe that doctors began prescribing drinking water to patients because they would otherwise die of thirst.
In other words, nothing changes in Britain, no matter how bad the abuses are. That is the lesson to be nationalized health care. Euthnasia, as well, killed the patients more quickly than simple neglect.
The British National Health Service (NHS) — the epitome of socialized medicine — may be prematurely ending the lives of as many as 130,000 elderly patients annually, a top physician told the Royal Society of Medicine in London.
Socialist political — and moral — values now prevail in France. The long slide of a once great nation continues as it continually repeats failed policies of the past.
The British government is proposing a bill that would force communications providers to log details of every e-mail, telephone call, and text message in the U.K. and make this information available to law enforcement on request.
On Thursday the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom “dismissed the application” filed by WikiLeaks founder and editor-in-chief, Julian Assange, to re-open the appeal filed by his legal counsel of the Supreme Court’s earlier decision to authorize his extradition to Sweden.
As reported by the Wall Street Journal, despite the U.K. Supreme Court’s rejection of Assange’s request, he retains the right to appeal that denial to the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR). A spokesman for WikiLeaks is quoted in the Wall Street Journal saying that Assange is “in discussions with his lawyers” with regard to the possibility. The Assange legal team refused to comment when contacted by The New American.
