Riots – a thought.


One of the great things about the NHS is that whatever you do as a patient it is never your fault. Take for example the following:

I am fat (nothing to do with you being greedy)

I smoke (nothing to do with choice and will power)

I am a drug addict (nothing to do with you choosing to do so)

I am in debt (nothing to do with you over reaching yourself)

I beat my wife and children (nothing to do with you being a self centred bully)

and so on.

All of the above are examples of the no blame culture that exists in the UK at present especially in healthcare. All of the above are examples of the crap that UK GPs see on a daily basis where it is never the patients’ fault but it is always the doctor’s responsibility to put right.

And you can bet your bottom dollar that someone who has rioted, been arrested and charged will want a doctor’s letter to tell the courts that their limp meant they had to carry a plasma TV to help them walk more evenly while wearing a hood to protect their photosensitive skin from the sun (at night).

We wonder which GP will be the lucky one to be the first to receive such a request for after all it is never their fault it will all be because they have an “illness” or a "medical problem"? And they do know their rights . . .

Praise be to the Party for allowing choice of action via rights. When responsibility does not enter into the equation rights become meaningless - just ask the victims of the riots for they too had rights that were violated by the mob.

Both groups be be seeing doctors in the next few days and we are lucky as doctors in the UK that we will not be prosecuted for seeing one of these groups although we still have to treat them.

I have noticed that all those who have been in trouble for computer hacking apparently have some mental problems. No doubt all the under age rioters are suffering from Attention Deficit Disorder, which was why they never learnt right from wrong at school. Is there no "Compulsive Acquisitive Disorder" or Magpie syndrome that they can blame for their thefts, or hasn't anyone thought of it yet?
