One of the things that Dr Rant started out to do was to rail against the pseudoreligeous cultist Free Market Nutjobs who were running around telling everyone that the reason the NHS was shit was not the chronic underfunding and constant revolving political reforms but the lack of a Free Market.
Perhaps everyone just being a selfish bastard who is out for themselves in an unregulated market wasn't the best way to run a civilization after all.
Which is odd, of course, because Team Rant's previous post [Google cache] contained these immortal lines...
Neither does it address the fact that GPs were both overworked AND underpaid in the past, and some redress was long overdue.
Ah, right: so, "everyone just being a selfish bastard who is out for themselves" is a bad thing unless you are a GP (like wot Dr Rant is).
And, of course, the market is a bad thing for patients, but a good thing as far as paying GPs is concerned. So, "shitty socialised medicine is a good thing, except where medicos' wages are concerned," says medico.
Who'd'a thunk it?
Hmmm, is that hypocrisy I smell?
I think it is...
Fucking hell, won't someone save us from the patronising arrogance of doctors?
