Not true, Chile has an excellent private pension systems that *everyone* has to participate in. 'Experts' from around the world have been there to take a look at how it should be done. Their troublesome lefties were sorted out as well :-)

Chile killed its own citizens for daring to have different beliefs. I personally know a political exile from Chile. He and his family literally had to run with just the clothes they had on their backs, otherwise they would be no more.

Rubbish. 99% of the time the standards are enhanced.

Lovely leftie notion.

No you don't, you pay the standard prescription charge. If the NHS happens to have badly organised the prescription proceedures than its down to them. Occassionally in the past I've had a private prescription and it's been cheaper.

They said they are going to save billions and services the same. This is amazing! they must have invented a new way of adding up.

No, just gone back to the old system of 1nurse+1patient=2, unlike the present Socialist system of 1nurse+3managers+ 57ticked boxes=2(maybes)

It was Thatcher who introduced two tiers of management into the NHS.

Their were no tiers as they didn't need to add up the cost of operations. There was no need.

Look at the big picture. Find out who own and runs the UK, and for whose benefit, which is not you and me. Read Who Runs Britain by Paxman and Who Own Britain by Cahill. Understand them and then you will see a ruling class of people who think they have the almighty right to rule, or heavily influence matters and live the life of Riley to boot, while excluding others (you and me). Voting Tory is shafting yourself, your family and friends.

But Labour are. The problem is in ensuring that the money goes into "front line services" rather than non or inessential jobs. I suspect that Gordon Brown is as outraged as the Daily Mail by some of the jobs that appear in the Guardian public sector ads. When I worked for a LA BCO jobs would be kept empty for months at a time whilst Personnel and Management Services relentlessly grew.

Actually the biggest increase in spending on the NHS in *real* terms was during John Majors 5 years. Oh, and the first thing Phoney did was scrap Ken Clarks initiatives - now 6 years later they have suddenly 'discovered' the same ideas and are calling them theirs.

No, he said they wanted to cut out all the unnecessary (final pensioned) bums behind desks - jag+=2 has employed 4,000 alone in the 'opdm' since 1997.

Because Noo Labour have swamped the NHS with 'managers' and bureaucracy.

I thought that is what Mr Letwin said they would do (spend more). How many of you have heard of Mr Grainger ?. He is the overpaid prat that Phoney has employed (250K per year) to spend about 5 *billion* of our taxes on a totally unnecessary national computerisation scheme for the NHS. Sod the Victorian buildings - lets get some bits and bytes in there. The whole charade has been surrounded by almost military secrecy - virtually no independent reviews or critical analysis. Mr Grainger has been reported as saying that all existing HNHS computer systems are 'crap' (some are, many aren't - like the London Hospitals excellent system running on venerable ?Old VAX's and systel) yet he hasn't bothered to even do a proper audit of what is being done.

I'm sorry, but it is. It depends on where you look.
There are parts of Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague, Frankfurt, Munich, cities of the Ruhrgebiet .... which have serious litter problems, among others.
Countries that are held on a pedestal of apparent neatness and civilisation have among the worst problems but sometimes manifest in other ways. For example, Bern, the federal capital of Switzerland has one of the highest incidences of hard drugs use in the western world. The public park next to the parliament building is permanently littered with used syringes and needles such that people can't use it safely. Yet everybody believes that this is the epitome of a well run society.

I didn't say that it was necessarily as bad in other countries, (i.e. I haven't counted the number of sweetie papers on the ground to three decimal places), but the issue is there, nonetheless.

Around Heathrow that is arguably true, but is not representative of all of the country. The immediate environs of airports like any other port anywhere are not representative of the rest of a country.

On all of the things that you list, there are examples of better and worse in every country. The grass always does look greener. I travel to somewhere most weeks, often to multiple countries and I see a great deal. There is no glamour in it, believe me. I talk to a lot of people, both in business and socially and the same issues are raised.
I would suggest that you take a look next time you travel. Things are not what they seem.
