Homeopathy prescribing set to be blacklisted under NHS England plans


You don't seem to get the point either LD. I'm not saying people should be barred from accessing it. I'm saying the taxpayer shouldn't fund it. Religious circumcisions on the NHS make 100% of families who make their sons get it feel better. Cosmetic breast implants make 100% of women who get it feel better. Escorts on personal health budgets make 100% of those who receive them feel better. That's your argument - just because it makes someone feel better means the taxpayer should fund it.... I'm all for people deciding for themselves, and then fund it themselves. And you say its miniscule? Well, you know the immortal words via Tesco - every little helps :) Plus, its obvious to anyone who's not a socialist, that to you, it's always easier spending someone else's money. And via Margaret Thatcher - The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money.
