This Sceptered Isle - Part XI

Didn’t believe me about compulsory health care, eh?

Well then, now read this:

NHS chiefs are planning to order a massive 40 per cent increase in weight loss surgery for dangerously obese patients from Yorkshire.

After getting our attention with this lead paragraph the article goes on and on, but curiously never gets around to these two questions:

1. How exactly will NHS chiefs decide who will be ordered to undergo surgery?

2. What is the penalty if one should refuse the order?

Oh well, maybe these questions aren't so important. After all, Brits have every reason to trust that Her Majesty's government will always
do the right thing.
