Oh healthcare

Recently a lot of Americans have been bashing the NHS which has bemused me somewhat – I'm much more used to feeling sorry for them for their healthcare system ;-).

I do find the furore that this has generated in the US rather disconcerting though. Sometimes I'm reminded just how much we are 'two countries separated by the same language', with their foaming at the mouth at 'socialised healthcare' whereas for us, it's something that we moan about but are proud of really. And any party that tried to take it away in this country would get a swift kick in the ballot box. And that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
