    Well, as the left likes to remind us about Obamacare: "This is only the first snip on the way to National Health Care". Show me where the long long lines are going to start, I want to be sure to be at the very end of it. Isn't it great to be catching up to the rest of the industrial-sized socialism of the rest of the West? All it took NHS was a year and a freedom of info requst to share with the public their "Ow, my balls!" special brand of care.

    And that level of care will not cost us a thing. Well... :eek:

    Fair enough, how about the following for a headline: Death Panels 'Right' 97% of the Time!

    As we take the next snips (oops, I mean "steps") down this tragic road one ought to wonder just how long it is before the words "free private healthcare" make some kind of sense in "American english"...

    3,000 NHS staff get private care
