Fewer beds, fewer doctors

The idea is to sell off the UK's National Health Service (NHS). 

During the 'Covid' crisis there were attempts to make hospitals seem over-crowded.

The NHS has 'strikingly low levels of key clinical staff' with fewer doctors and nurses and a heavier reliance on internationally trained workers. 

The UK has just three doctors per 1,000 people while Greece has 6.3.

Our health service is failing to deliver world-leading care as it has fewer beds, scanners and doctors than many developed nations, a report warns today.

The better-off middle and upper classes, who were able to buy property with mortgages - some of them investors doing 'buy-to-let' landlording - are getting a UK government bail-out

'UK Govt Bails Out Broke Homeowners'

But would it maybe be better, to let housing prices fall ... so more and poorer people could own where they live?

Financial Times:
"There are few unfairnesses greater than the fact that property owners get all the benefits of real estate price booms and low interest rates, but demand bailouts, often successfully, when rates rise and prices fall."
- Adam Posen, president of the Peterson Institute for International Economics, and former member of Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee
