Mitchell: The Sadistic Brutality of England’s Government-Run Healthcare

I’m not easily grossed out or nauseated. Heck, I’m on email lists for a half-dozen softball teams and you can only imagine the strange/filthy/nasty things that guys send to each other.

But I read a story about the death panels in the United Kingdom that left me discombobulated. I can’t even begin to describe how I feel.

Here’s the intro of a disturbing report in the Daily Mail.

Sick children are being discharged from NHS hospitals to die at home or in hospices on controversial ‘death pathways’. Until now, end of life regime the Liverpool Care Pathway was thought to have involved only elderly and terminally-ill adults. But the Mail can reveal the practice of withdrawing food and fluid by tube is being used on young patients as well as severely disabled newborn babies.

And here are some of the horrifying details. Read at your own risk.

    It was the fan blowing on him that killed him as he had pneumonia. What’s wrong with the nurses if this is widespread. Here in Canada, those palliative care nurses are professional and compassion is there. I couldn’t be more grateful for the way three of my own died, in comfort, peace and their favorite last meals prepared with obvious love.

    So appreciative. Good news overnight, Jack at the Telegraph. Google, “Nurses will be formally rated on their compassion.” Dec. 3rd. The article is not there this morning. But can be googled which I just did.

    It mentions it will take courage on the part of nurses with an implied stance that it will mean confronting doctors decisions. Long in place, doctors orders must be followed and of course they should, but in these reported cases, where commenters couldn’t even continue reading reports of newborns literally shrivelling up deprived and food and water til death, those doctors should be prosecuted and of course fired. They’re replaceable with new MDs lining up behind them.

    I BELIEVE Queen Elizabeth and all the Royals are outraged at this report. I fully recognize all the good the Queen did this past year, all her speeches, particularly one where she said to the effect referring to a time when she wasn’t even born yet, that her government wished different decisions were taken, that events shouldn’t have happened at all.

    Anyways, the report last night said that patients were so thirsty they were drinking out of water vases.

    Anyone following human events in 2012 can only be aware the ‘darkness is deepening.’ We remember Tori Stafford and April of Wales…others. The human slaughter/brutal genocides continuing. These CAN BE RECTIFIED by human initiative. God helps those who help themselves.

    I think we’ve ‘bottomed out’ as a species. One way only to go now– UP into the returning light associated with the SOLSTICE, Dec. 21st.

    More later….

    Time for a ‘full stop’ at this report. Cameron and his health department must answer to this and correct the “brutal, sadistic” situation. How could the parents allow their infants to die of thirst? How could the attending nursing staff stand by and watch it happen?? The hippocratic oath is universal. These doctors couldn’t be differentiated from Hitler’s Dr. Mengele, ‘the doctor of death.’

    How long has this been going on? This is the second report we’ve seen. And it means Britain is no different than the butchers in Syria and the Congo. No different whatsoever.

      It’s socialist enlightenment and these children cost money. That’s all it amounts to — dollars and cents. I am as angry as you and the writer of the column are.

      Completely disgusting and Cameron should be “keel hauled” over this as should the “pinheads” who originally came up with the idea. There is a lot more going on in the NHS which is revolting (I’m following it) and America should take note as Obama tries to save his health care plan.

      Palin called it best. “Death panels” and she was completely correct.

      There is no other description which fits as a very smart lady in the recent past told us what socialists are all about. Useless human beings and all that.

      Sarah should be the next US President in 2016 but she won`t be thanks to a gang (both sides) who enjoy their entitlements. But time moves on and I haven`t given up on her yet. The US has four years to sit up and pay attention to her as they deal with their problems. I would listen because there is a reason the MSM stampeded out of the linked speech and invaded Wasilla, Alaska within hours of the moment she first appeared on the US stage. She scares all American politicians to death and for good reason. She loves her country and in no way will she see it go down under her watch. Have I mentioned that she intends to fire them all? Perhaps not but she intends to. Think Maggie Thatcher by a factor of ten. Perhaps the best president the US never had because pinheads are still in charge. I hope for change because, in my view, Sarah is the female version of Harper. Perhaps the US will still wake up and get over THEIR Peter Pan and I expect so.

      There is always hope and as I explained to a friend by mail who is very upset, within a very short time the US will go over the cliff and American taxpayers are going to be very “pissed off”. Obama will reap the whirlwind.

      I’m Waiting.

      Update: I can’t believe this fool.

      And nobody else does either.
