Olive oil futures grow by 300%.

The High Court has stated that the NHS is able to fund the ‘prep’ anti-hiv drug. Now I, and probably many more, strongly object to the taxpayer funding a drug which has been termed a ‘get-out-of-HIV-lifestyle’ drug. I object because the drug is taken as a routine prophylactic by homosexuals who have sex with other homosexuals on a promiscuous basis without any condom protection.

I object in the strongest possible fashion to taxpayers’ cash being used to fund a hedonistic lifestyle in the allegedly ‘gay’ scene; and I am also strongly opposed to the massive costs of antiretroviral drugs being handed out ‘on the hoof’ to homosexuals who have been infected by this disease; infected primarily and principally because of their ‘lifestyle’ choices.

If men wish to engage in anal sex, which is against nature itself, that is their choice, but they should engage in these totally risky activities outside of the protections afforded them by the Health Services of this Country. They can indulge in as many ‘friendships’ as they wish, but if they wish to do so without the protection of condoms; they should be told, quite firmly, that the risk is all theirs.

Those who have routinely called for this drug to be available on the NHS dismiss the approach that condoms should always be used for homosexual activities on the basis that such use is not always available on the grounds that it denies ‘spontaneity’ and deadens the thrill, are just, in my view; supporting routine promiscuity which was so evident in the San Francisco bath-houses which stemmed the rise of HIV and AIDs in the first place. Not for nothing were HIV and AIDs first described as the ‘gay plague’.

If that manner of sexual conduct is what you wish and desire; good luck: but don’t ask the British taxpayer to fund your ‘lifestyles’.

    Fascinating that, should you choose to engage in a known high-risk activity like unprotected anal sex, the NHS will magically come up with whatever cash is needed to treat the consequences of your imprudent actions.

    If, however, you choose to smoke tobacco, an activity with a different and lower risk-profile but which also generates vast tax-revenue, the same NHS will seek to deny you treatment on the grounds that your consequent condition was self-imposed due to your imprudent disregard of health advice.

    Strange world, innit ?

    Condoms are much cheaper – “prep” costs up to £400 per person per month. This idiotic decision could be the beginning of many claims from other pressure groups for preventative medicines – all to be funded by the taxpayer of course. Then there’s all the other things the NHS wastes our money on, like cosmetic surgery. Already NICE have decided that some proven anti-cancer therapies are “unaffordable”, partly because finite funds are diverted to this sort of nonsense. We’re all doomed if these attitudes persist.

    Hideous decision by the High Court. I didn’t see them reversing NICE when they deemed certain cancer drugs too expensive.

      In practice, this High Court decision was only about who ought to fund it if a decision was ever made to provide the treatment.
      It was about the technical difference between ‘public health initiatives’ (the responsibility of local councils) or ‘health treatment’ (the responsibility of the NHS).
      The court only decided that, if it were ever decided to fund this, then it fitted better into the NHS’s responsibility than that of the local councils – probably a great relief to Brighton & Hove Council and its ratepayers.

      No decision on whether to provide the ‘prep’ therapy has yet been taken – that will be a separate issue for NICE and will no doubt involve substantial lobbying by noisy interest groups, all well aware that volume can often trump any medical, social or financial logic in such matters.

    I think back to the old days when AIDS first appeared and we thought that AIDS stood for ‘Arse Injected Death Sentence’

    Then instead of curing cancer and a multitude of other things we sorted out AIDS and HIV using our money.

    The NHS doesn’t fund anything. The taxpayer does that.

    Agreed with all of the above posts and this is my input and ever so slightly O/T but I’ll make no apologies.

    Silence and money grows on trees in the NHS but the message is – “you lot are getting old and grey!!”

    and heretofore it must follow that; “it must be all YOUR fault!” at least that is the politicians, DoH along with, the health administrators and the bbc’s meme and by God do they stick it to us.

    Another elephant?

    We the people are never allowed to debate nor discuss NHS funding because Political Correctness precludes the relating of the reality.

    For some it seems, money is no object.

    An even larger presence sitting in the waiting room as it were.

    Just visit a hospital in any large English town or city these days, you can witness it yourself.

    The ice berg problem and all adds to the vast Health bill for those who’ve never paid a penny in.

    And this is just the tip of the ice berg if one considers the enormous health bill for administering to the hundreds of thousands of elderly and infirm patients who have crossed the Eurasian continent to be with their sons and daughters newly based in Britain and all guaranteed via the ECHR-HRA and ‘rights to family renunion’ [what about our rights?].

    Then, not least because of a vastly expanding birth rate natal clinics in London and the north report that ‘alien birthrates’ account for sometimes >75% of beds in hospital wards and then there is the health tourism. Finally, this is never admitted to, the great taboo or what was taboo, where in certain minority communities, pertaining to inter familial marriage, leading to congenital problems of those born unto that particular form of incestuous wedlock.

    When you allow the world to access your hospitals,,,,,,,, [try it in Spain or France – they won’t let you in the door before you show ID and ability to pay]…….in the UK: there’s just no beds FOR YOU!

    I dunno, all-in-all, notwithstanding the evident moral principle, fifteen, twenty £million is neither here nor there.
