18 months ago there was a referendum. The brexiteers won it. Some months later Article 50 was enacted & brexit became a fact. Yet, despite that, the brexiteers continue to whine, whinge & moan incessantly, day in & day out.

Oh my, and THEY want to go global !!!

Thinking about it, here they would sent you straight home. Might explain why we don't have people on trolleys waiting for hours.

And according to May, the NHS is ranked ''best'' in the world ? That's by her account I assume.

... Yes. Though in fairnes my experience is that it's partly encouraged to some degree by Management, especially in the public sector. Not to worry though, somewhere out there in the Big-Bad-World-Post-Brexit is someplace that owes the UK a living...... There must be.....

Just asking ???
Flu can be deadly to older people, especially those with compromised immune systems due to other illnesses. How widespread is flu vaccine use in the UK? Admittedly it's a long way from 100% effective - and this year's is purportedly less effective than usual - but widespread vaccination certainly helps.

Article from 2015 -

Patients are being prescribed over-the-counter toothpastes, sun creams and multivitamins on the NHS at a cost of millions of pounds, figures suggest.

The data, published by the Health and Social Care Information Centre, shows a total of 1.1bn items were prescribed by doctors in England in 2014, representing a 3% rise on the previous year.

These included widely available products such as Colgate toothpaste, Yakult yoghurt drink and Berocca vitamin tablets, prompting concern from a patients group which described the prescriptions as “ludicrous”.

The figures appear to suggest GPs gave out a total of 404,556 prescriptions for sun cream, including brands such as Ambre Solaire, at a cost of at least £13m. And 347,802 scripts were written out for multivitamins, such as those available from Tesco or Superdrug, at a cost of £2.6m.

Just had a look at the recommendations here in France :

If normally you are healthy, take paracetamol and stay in bed.
If you are a bit feeble, go and see your GP
If there are other symptoms, like respiration problems or fainting or so, go to the hospital.

And as we know from the demographic surveys most of that tax revenue comes from Remainers!

Hate to give a Daily Mirror link, but according to this article there is an average of 8,000 flu deaths a year in the UK:

On the other hand, since polls have revealed that a lot of Brexiteers are older people, one could argue it is the Brexiteers clogging up the NHS and not the young healthy working immigrants .....
