The Yanks, the NHS and the Tories

Seems that certain sections of the US political scene have been falling over themselves to knock the NHS. Words and phrases such as 'evil', 'Orwellian' and 'death panels' have been bandied about to stoke up fear of the red menance and to have a pop at Obama.

Seems not so long ago that there were a number of blog posts regarding the home grown Tory attitude towards the NHS, especially that expressed by Daniel Hannah the Tory MEP. He was having a great old time in the land of the free putting the boot into the concept and practice of the NHS, much to the delight of the interviewer.

I blogged about it here in April but you'll find his youtube video all over the place. In fact I'll embed it again as it's well worth watching. The condemnation from Cameron over Daniel Hannah's interview was noticeable by it's absence.
