Farage Responds to protests Against the Cash-Strapped NHS

President Trump has riled Britain guide by wading into a sensitive debate in your health service-although the system is socialized, is visibly plagued by a winter crisis, slashed, services, and led to claims that patients are dying in the corridors and ambulances.

Trump commented on Monday on a weekend in March in London calls for more funding for the British National Health Service (NHS) through the description of the NHS as a “bust” and criticizing the Democrats want to mimic the system.

The March was a wide pro-NHS March, criticized the decision of the Conservative government, sufficient funds for the system. However, the characters in the March to call for the NHS “” contain saved statements declare the NHS is “broken.”

The Democrats are pushing for Universal health care while thousands of people March in the UK, because their metro system is broke and does not work. Dems want to heavily increase taxes for the really bad and non-personal medical care. No, thank you!

The government has stated that it does not say by the increase in the appropriation of billions each year, but critics, it is enough, in what will be a decades-long war over NHS funding.

These calls have overwhelmed become more urgent in recent weeks as the NHS was hit by a “winter crisis”, the canceled saw tens of thousands of non-urgent operations in England for more than a month, and widespread reports of hospitals simply.

The Guardian reported this week that some more urgent operations, such as, for example, cancer and heart surgeries are cancelled in some hospitals.

Trump’s tweet seemed to be the reaction to a segment on “Fox & Friends” in the former UK Independence y leader, Nigel Farage, said the crisis was fueled by an increase in population from migration, risked tearing apart the structures.

“We need basic reforms. This system, which we had, was in 1948, and indeed, amazing for a state, which for most of the first 50 years, the people had said a lot of confidence in him,” Farage. “Now, it pretty much is broken.”

Concern about an NHS in crisis, also shared by the left of the Labour y leader Jeremy Corbyn, the crack in the state of the NHS in Parliament in January, so that this grim summary:

“Mr. Speaker, the Prime Minister must be aware of the ambulance to be backed up in the hospital car parks, with nurses treating patients in the back of the ambulance, the ambulance driver and paramedics desperately, to the next patient can not leave, because the patient do in this moment can not be said in the [IT],” he said.

Corbyn also cited an example, where someone froze to death after waiting 16 hours for an ambulance and another who waited four hours after a fall. However, his comments clearly made, that he push for a reform of the decades-old system, but simply calling for a further influx of financial resources.

Head of the Labour party, Jeremy Corbyn, has blasted the state of the NHS.


“People are dying unnecessarily in the car in the back of the ambulance and in the hospital corridors. GP-are left to pay down, nurses, the NHS is in crisis,” he said. “Mr. Speaker, Tory MPs don’t like it, but I ask this question to the Prime Minister: If you are going to face the reality and take action to save the NHS from death by a thousand cuts?”

Prime Minister Theresa May responded by saying that their government was more money into the NHS, and recruiting more doctors and nurses” to ensure that our NHS remains a world-class health system, in fact, the best health system in the world.”

But after Trump’s comments, the politicians on both sides of the aisle, the strengths of the system touted. Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt used Twitter to Outdo the fire again, and the attack of the American health care system.

I can not agree with claims that the March of life, but ONE of them wants to, in a system in which 28 people, have no coverage. The NHS challenges may have been, but I’m proud of it invented out of the country, universal coverage, where all care-regardless of the size of your Bank account

— Jeremy Hunt (@Jeremy_Hunt) 5. February 2018

A spokesman for 10 Downing Street, told Sky News that Hunt spoke for the government in the matter.

“The Prime Minister is proud of the fact that a NHS, the said free at the time of delivery”, the speaker. “NHS funding is at a record high and was a priority in the budget with an extra £2.8 billion euros.”

Jeremy Corbyn, the had painted, the Dickensian nightmare of Parliament in January, said that the people marched because “they love our NHS” and you hate “, what the Tories are doing to it.”

Wrong. People marched because we love our NHS, and hate what the Tories are doing to it. Health care is a human right.

The British public had, what may seem to outsiders, an unusual relationship with their health care system, which has been described as the UK’s true “national religion”. Despite the frequent crises and many of the problems the NHS faces, the British are hard-defensive system -, as well as the attempts to reform. But some commentators have said that Trump hits the nail on the head.

“Where trump is right that the NHS is broken. In contrast to other European countries, it exists in a state of perpetual crisis,” Kate Andrews at the Institute of Economic Affairs, a UK free-market think-tank, told Fox News. “The single-payer system, coupled with the demographic change has led to problematic rationing and longer waiting times.”

Andrews also poured cold water on Democratic hopes to imitate, to such a system in the United States

“It’s certainly not a system that the United States would emulate. His treatment results are terrible, in comparison to European colleagues. IEA research has found out that tens of thousands of people could be saved per year if British patients were treated at other health systems,” she said.

Trump’s remarks mark the latest in a series of controversies for the US-British relations, since Trump took office. However, the meeting in Davos last month of may to smash Trump rumors that the relations between the two heads of state and government, heads of tense tried.

“I have a great respect for the Prime Minister and the work that she does,” Trump. “And I think that the feeling is mutual, from the point of view each other like that very much.”
