Here’s another excellent, hard-hitting, article by Laura Donnelly, Health Correspondent, at the Telegraph. It’s a MUST READ article in my view.

 

via Callous: the verdict on NHS care for the dying – Telegraph.

 

Sadly, this article is just the latest in the flood of bad news and crises in the UK National Health Services (NHS).

 

This blog has consistently argued that, on David Cameron’s watch, the NHS is in terminal decline and needs to be replaced with a new public health service, based on the best practice in other countries like Germany and France.

 

Any thoughts?

This is an interesting article, reported in the Guardian. It’s a MUST READ article in my view. Check it out!

More than 2,400 UK bankers paid €1m-plus, EU regulator says | Business | The Guardian.

As I read the article, a number of thoughts came to mind including:

  • Banking remuneration out of line with other sectors
  • Banking remuneration protected from austerity
  • Banking remuneration is not correlated to the effectiveness of the banking sector, especially in financing small businesses
  • UK too dependent upon the financial services sector

 

  • This leads me to an interesting open question:

How should the UK Government adjust policy given that the UK has more than 2,400 bankers earning EUR1m+?

Any thoughts?
