Re: Public sector

In my mind its not quite as simple as the private sector just paying for the public sector. The services the public sector provide enable the private sector to be successful. No one would be buying much if it wasnt for roads, healthcare, education etc etc. A private sector worker gives their money to provide these services. A public sector worker gives their time to provide these services.

Its often a good idea to try and view the world through something other than the lens of money.

Medical scan record that the NHS says will cost £2k to retrieve: Detail

Re: Hplasm

I'm gonna assume thats a dig at me (certainly looks like one).

I would hardly compare two (now three) posts fairly anonymously on a story with demanding an ECG from 8 years ago, then threatening legal action and ringing the papers when they wont give it me.

Re: Just a thought

From the article "In the event that any patient requires future treatment all clinical decisions and treatment are based on diagnostic tests undertaken at the time of admittance and as required rather than from historical records"

Having just read the BBC article - its a shame theyre not allowed to just tell him to piss off or to recreate the image himself. He's just looking for attention.

Just a thought

Because old scans aren't medically important and thus it would be a waste of public money?

Re: AI Fields in which IntelAIgents do not suffer Fools and their Blunt Tools

Odd how some people find it harder to grasp that reality is a chaotic mess of forces vying for attention/power, than one massive conspiracy where every element of life is controlled by a mysterious yet all powerful force.

Fuel taxes don't hurt the world's poor - they don't have cars

jm83

Theres a whole world of different scenarios between people living in mud huts farming the immediate area and huge western cities importing goods from the other side of the planet.

Fuel taxes will keep more people in the former category than moving them to the latter.

Pint

Agree, reg is slightly out of whack here.

However, I thought the UK limit was 2 units which is equivalent to one pint of moderate lager? So 3.75x over the limit would be 3.75 pints or are you factoring in time to drink them?

Not arguing, genuinely curious.

re vfm

Whilst i dont disagree that there are definite efficiency savings to be made in govt. I would be more careful with my words. What your opinion of waste is may differe from the majority. For example I can bet there are those out there which think spending money on universal healthcare is a waste (obviously cos they can afford their own team of specialists).

Re: paying for

Its subsidised & regulated. If (for instance) water was treated as a free market, you can bet those counties with huge resources would charge a lot more than 0.001p per litre for it.

as it is, we are a country not a selection of little regions and that means sharing stuff about for best effect.

Re: People in remote ares

People in the city shouldnt expect an inexhaustible supply of fresh water as clearly theres no space to store it all. That and fresh fruit n veg, why the hell should they get all that when clearly its the folks in the countryside who grow it (well a small percentage of it)

Oh and electricity... why the hell should city folk use so much when dont host the power stations.

Re: DavCrav

I believe the independence argument is based more on self determination than economics? (though im not scottish so dont know (or care) about this). I also dont know what Alex Neil thinks about independence.

As it is though, theyre not independent and so its down to the MPs to fight for more cash for their regions.

Though I would have thought Welsh MPs would be kicking up more of a fuss, didnt someone figure out that they were getting squat?

Re: Scotland gets more...

This might be because Scotland is on the whole poorer than average. Taxes help to redistribute wealth from the rich to the poor.

If you disagree with this then thats a different matter.... and youre a git.

re: How about

You were onto something until you started having a pop at the human rights act.... you shouldnt believe everything you read in the Daily Mail.

There is nothing controversial in the act and before you start railing against it you probably ought to understand the act in detail... given they are rights that apply to you also.
