Nearly a third of GPs say they will quit within five years


I repeat again lol This is what you get when you have comprehensive socialised state healthcare provision..... It's nothing surprising. For decades, economists globally have known this would be the end result because of some fundamental principles: 1. The bigger a state bureaucracy, the smaller your economy/private sector/wealth generators. 2. The state tends to do things badly or make things worse. 3. It's always easier to be liberal with someone else's money, or flipping it, no one is more responsible than with their own money. 4. Taking personal responsibility (inc financial) from individuals encourages less responsible behaviour. And for decades, I've seen no contrary evidence to the above, and have heard no rational counter-argument from the left. Anyone fancy a go?
