““Listen to me, it’s going to be done today whether you like it or not because it has to be done within ten days.”…”

But yeah, let’s all sneer at the anti-vaxxers, eh?

Although screening is strongly recommended, parents can decline. Tony believes he knows the real reason the midwife was so insistent on getting the test done: targets.

‘We were told by friends that midwives have targets to get the heel prick test done,’ Tony says.
‘There’s immense pressure on midwives, but there’s also the culture that you will just do as you’re told. We naturally question everything.’

The very idea that anyone would question the NHS is so strange and abhorrent to the people that work in it that there can only be one possible cause…

They said, “We think your partner may be refusing care in some way because it’s usually your partner who speaks.

‘ ‘‘Are you allowed to speak, are you in any form of danger? Is your partner violent towards you?” ’

In some parts of Haringey & Tower Hamlets, I bet there are doctors who have never heard a wife speak. Do they get this treatment, I wonder?

And isn’t it amazing how much time & resource was spent chasing this couple? It throws some other stories into stark relief…

The following day, the distraught couple, who had been planning to eventually retire to Poland, wrote a list of pros and cons of moving there or staying in Britain.

‘The biggest con of staying in Britain was potentially having our son taken from us or dealing with the NHS on a continual basis,’ Tony says. ‘That tipped the balance.’

The decision made, they put their home up for rent and left for Poland two weeks later.

Truly, it’s the wonder of the world, right?

    The NHS – the world example of what you get when you allow bureaucracy to run rampant. It becomes a self perpetuating monster with a good line in killing off those that have to rely on its services.

    Yes that couple fled to Poland should have stayed and fought their ground, time to say NO to the hidden government called Common Purpose. the nightmare is here a television that watches you while you watch it, new cars tell the government where they are 24 hours a day, the vaccine epidemic to make billions for big Pharma, the Police trying to find out who bought Charlie Hebdo right here in England, it goes on and on,, and not forgetting the parents who fled to Spain knowing the NHS would possibly kill their son and had treatment in Slovakia.

    I’m amazed that no one has gone ballistic on the workers at the NHS. It’ll come eventually. Then as usual it’s the wrong people that get it.

      I’m desperately trying to stay well and out of their clutches.

    The fundamental is we have allowed “all” our public services to evolve into authorities.
    It’d be difficult in most cases to restore “service” status, In the case of the NHS(A) they will play the fear card, if you don’t do as we say you’ll die.

    I usually ‘defend’ public health services, but frankly that stems from living in an era I enjoyed when adults were in charge of it instead of mindless bullies who ‘follow orders’ and see ‘abuse’ in everyone but themselves.

    The automatic suspicion about the father and domestic violence / child sexual abuse says a great deal about the mindless negation of adult sense that has been brought about by…. yes, Feminism.

    Just been reading Veterans Today website, I am revolted, the real truth about the delay in Chilcot inquiry may have its roots in South Africa concerning Cameron, Blair and Dr David Kelly, the article entitled” the colour of David Camerons Underpants”.
