The last bastion of Socialism

The NHS, envy of the world (well the world that does not live in France, or Germany, or Canada, or Japan ...) has a new plan to get rid of waiting lists. Instead of using two waiting lists, the official one for the statistics and the unofficial one to get onto the official one, the NHS is stopping people from getting appointments at all. What an example of the masterly mind of the central planner! That is not the only benefit of this new system, not only does it stop the hospitals getting cluttered up with sick people it makes sure that anybody from consultant to hospital porter can get instant access to anybodies medical records in the entire country with no barriers other than an exhortation to be nice.
