Apparently she was "feeling faint", poor love. I hope that wasn't an NHS hospital, considering all the people who can't get treatment for real illnesses thanks to her decimation of the NHS.

OK, I don't really have an opinion either way on MT, but please explain to me how she decimated the NHS.
Is this the same way that she single-handedly destroyed the coal mining industry (ignoring the fact that coal reserves were running out and that Arthur Scargil was a lunatic) and killed the hunger strikers (ignoring the fact that they refused to eat) ???

I'm just curious, that's all.

I always wondered where goals came from!!

I was born and grew up in a coal mining village and MT was never the most popular of people...... having said that ... it wasn't all bad and she did more for the UK than that little sleaze ball Blair .....

she can afford to go private, but that's hardly the point though...shouldn't she be any more entitled to the care than say George Best or Ronnie Biggs for example?

At least when she was in charge we were nobody's rubbing rags and had some pride and self respect.

Not like today when the country is run be someone who has his head stuck up the arse of America's village idiot. (obligtory smiley )

Yes, I agree, I'd much rather have the NHS here, we don't have medical insurance, hubby's job screwed us over & we have just been left hanging.

I was wondering what you meant about the second part of your post, the bit about Tony Blair?
