    I will remind you all over and over, as my torn bicep is forced to heal without surgery. Socialized medicine is giving the government control of your most intimate treasure: your health. If you are deemed an enemy of the state, or whistleblower as I am you had better stay healthy. Or, just plain bad luck and the hospitals are full...

    No hospital beds in London leaves man stranded in Mexico

    A 71-year-old London man is stuck in a Mexican hospital after an aneurysm, but his family says even though doctors have cleared him to fly, he can't return home because there are no hospital beds available in London.

    Stuart Cline suffered the aneurysm after he fell and hit his head about a week ago and has been staying in an intensive care unit at a Mexican hospital ever since, according to his daughter-in-law Alejandra Cline.

    Cline said on Saturday, doctors in Mexico decided he was stable enough to fly home, but it never happened.

    "This is just a nightmare," she said. "He's in critical condition. His heart is weak. He can't breathe. He's intubated. We just need to bring him back home."

    'It's just ridiculous'
    That can't happen because Cline has been told by his insurance company, RBC Travel, that there is no room at London hospitals.

    "We all know that if this incident happened in London he would have a bed. Or if London doesn't have a bed they would send him somewhere else, but because he's in Mexico he doesn't deserve a bed?"

    "It's just ridiculous," she said.

    On Wednesday, London West New Deomcrat MPP Peggy Sattler rose at Queen's Park to ask whether the Liberal government would help the Clines find a hospital bed for their ailing relative.

    Yep. It's all about controlling the riff-raff.

    How did you go from whistleblower to hospital reject?

    Apart from that, yeah many things are wrong with Britain, now worse than ever before.

    Let's see. First killing your own empire and reducing yourself to an island state. Then transforming yourself from a country of working people into a socialist cesspool. Then selling yourself off to Russian oligarch. And beating that down on your own people.

    But no problem, there is a solution to all of the problem above. Let's add to the British laws that it is also mandatory that every British citizen sells minimum two of his own kidneys. They will like that.

    British response: but what if all that kidney dumping on the market makes them worthless?
