You won't see me coming....
As I predicted a few weeks ago, one thing that this Chinese Covid19 crisis would reveal is just how generally crap, badly organised and inefficient the NHS really is.
Please excuse an off-topic comment - I was befriended by a rare type of policeman yesterday, Julia.Being in a dreadful hurry, I drove a little faster than usual down the hill to town. Indeed I was trying to overtake another driver who was also in a rush. I knew how fast I was going and by the time my combatant and I saw flashing lights behind us, it was all too late. As the speeding vehicles came to a tyre-squealing halt, I was already listening to the circumstances of an F1 event being described in court and being subject to those mocking smiles from the bench which herald guilty verdicts before the halfway stage of proceedings. I watched the officer slowly approach my side mirror and thought of bribes v flight in those desperate seconds.I decided to get out of the car and approach him on foot with a cheery smile, which was reciprocated as he asked me if I was out on an essential journey. "Well to be honest with you, officer, I simply forgot something on my earlier shopping list, that's all." "I know who you are...and how you slag off police as if we could be worse than the real Gestapo." Damn, that's torn it, I thought. "But I am going to overlook this episode of reckless driving by you two, on the condition that you reconsider your attitude towards us and always remember in future that we are simply trying to keep the peace and protect the public. Have a good day, Sir."I was left stunned. So you see, Julia, I will no longer be critical of police officers on this blog or anywhere else for that matter. More of us need this kind of sobering lesson to reflect on the difficulties police face every day on our behalf.
I cant help wondering if we wont see rationing of beds with a certain number "reserved" for our betters and their protected classes. I can see it now, "oh, yes, we know the wards empty, but we're expecting an influx of pikeys and ragheads Mr Biker, so your wife doesn't get help I'm afraid"** shortly followed by "What are you doing with that axe" and "Aaaarggghhhh"
Anyone remember Jackanory when they were kids? Seems like we have a similar story teller on here.Jaded
Now, now Jaded, Melv did wait for April Fools Day after all!
"...just how generally crap, badly organised and inefficient the NHS really is."Sadly, most people who've had the misfortune to have to use it already know..."So you see, Julia, I will no longer be critical of police officers on this blog or anywhere else..."*raises eyebrow*"I cant help wondering if we wont see rationing of beds..."Stop wondering. That's exactly what we'll see.
