I don't begrudge a penny of the tax I pay, we live in one of the richest economies in the world, and one of the nicest places in the world (except the weather!), I'd much rather be here where that money is available than in most other societies around the world, but I do get upset about how it is spent sometimes.steve_h80 wrote:This is what I like about bikers.
We all get wet, cold and grin a lot but we're from all walks of life and you never know, or really care, if the guy on the next bike or in the next tent is minted or skint.
It's also coming across here that we all believe in paying our taxes, most likey because we have enough sense to realise the benefits.
Lesson to the rest of the population methinks.
I'm just recovering from an e-coli bloodstream infection contracted during a weekend stay and surgery in an NHS hospital that is in special measures. It was contracted through either the IV line, the catheter, or through my surgical incision and I've never been so ill in my life. Every part of the whole experience with the NHS has been simply horrendous, from stuff as simple as parking the car, or getting a nurse to bring a glass of water to your bed, though to the failings in infection control which means you go in with a broken ankle and come out seriously ill with none of your internal organs working. More money won't fix it. It needs taking to pieces and putting back together from top to bottom.
