Let's talk Gummint-Care

Last month, we reported on the latest CanuckCare news, and it wasn't pretty:

"Waiting for treatment has become a defining characteristic of Canadian health care ... waiting times for medically necessary treatment have in-creased since last year."

Turns out, it's even worse than we'd thought:

That's right, a four-and-a-half year wait to see the neurologist. But hey: it's free!

To which Britain's Much Vaunted National Health System© says "Hold my pint:"

"NHS 'haemorrhaging' nurses as 33,000 leave each year ... one in 10 now leaving the NHS in England each year, figures show."

This represents a pretty significant problem, since it means the service is now "upside-down" with regard to nurses:

"[T]here are now more leavers than joiners."

Sustainability, indeed.

But hey, free health "care."
