Don't disgrace Steve Hawkings name by misusing it. He credits the UK health system with saving his life....

It is also noted that the private care insurance option in the UK is only used by 8% of the population so things must not be that bad....and people I personally know who live there are satisfied with their care.

My whole family, parents, wife, and children have had nothing but excellent treatment from the NHS in England.

Sure you get exceptions but thats true in every country.

The WHO ranked the USA as 37th in 2000:
No better in 2008

Hey folks, remember that the Brits are socialists, of course they think that, if it's free it's good. They have no taste and very little of anything else.

They have a tast for food other than McDonalds and Burger King.
Better education, better accents, better manners, better health care, and a currency stronger than the Dollar, hmmm this is getting boring. Their weather sucks.

Right, Bangers and mash or if you want real flavor float whatever in grease, don't forget those tasty beans and deep fried bread with a fried tomato in the mornings. The worse food in the world next to Burma. Education you say, Oxford, filled with pompous little prigs mincing around on their bikes squealing like little girls, reading history. Half the population on the dole. Lived there for two unbelievably bad years, if it wasn't for the great women in Scotland and Wales I'd have gone crazy.

I did forget one other item that a Brit can not do without when shoveling in all of that grease. It's called brown sauce, and they will shout from the two story consul roof tops that "It's ever so lovely".
For some reason those in the military are first rate. Hard to understand, because the rest leave a lot to be desired for.
