MVNHS© vs Baby Charlie: An Update

Regular readers may recall last month's post on Baby Charlie, the infant with a rare genetic disorder that the Much Vaunted National Health System© didn't want to pay for. But that's not even the worst of it. Thanks to FoIB The Political Hat, we learn that it's not enough for the government-run health "care" scheme to just withhold treatment, now the bureauweenies in charge are actively seeking to prevent his parents from seeking any treatment, anywhere:

"A crowdfunding campaign set up to pay for Charlie’s treatment in America has passed its £1.3m target.” [ed: ~1.7 million dollars]

So, clear sailing, right?


"The judge and cowardly politicians would rather tout platitudes of how being killed is in anyone’s best interest. They are explicitly ordering this child’s death."

And that's a key problem with government-run healthcare: it may be "free" but you don't get to call the shots. IPAB, anyone?
