A Guardian article entitled, Doctors back denial of treatment for smokers and the obese, reports the findings of a survey stating that 54% of doctors think the NHS should have the right to withhold non-emergency treatment to patients unless they lose weight or stop smoking:

A majority of doctors support measures to deny treatment to smokers and the obese, according to a survey that has sparked a row over theNHS‘s growing use of “lifestyle rationing”.

Some 54% of doctors who took part said the NHS should have the right to withhold non-emergency treatment from patients who do not lose weight or stop smoking. Some medics believe unhealthy behaviour can make procedures less likely to work, and that the service is not obliged to devote scarce resources to them.

However, senior doctors and patient groups have voiced alarm at what they call “blackmailing” of the sick, and denial of their human rights.


Doctors in the UK are arguing that obese persons and smokers should be refused medical care under the national health insurance? Doctors who think they should refuse treatment to anyone seeking it should have their licenses revoked, as far as I am concerned. The lack of humanity and compassion is stunning. Hippocratic Oath? Anyone????

That said, I also considered that the report is propaganda, designed to soften the targets. No one will get health care so no one should expect health care. If you’re fat or smoke you don’t get care; if you’re skinny and don’t smoke, you don’t need care. Denied or not needed.

It reminds me of how the sadistic class stations fully armed police officers in US schools K-12. Cops literally arrest kids for normal bad behavior / harmless pranks. What kid doesn’t have a bad day in school or pull an occasional prank? Do kids really need to be traumatized by being placed in handcuffs and frogmarched into a holding cell? Are teachers and principals so inept that they can no longer deal with students’  behavioral issues? Aren’t they trained to deal with these issues?

But, it’s not about that. It is an effective way to soften the target and brainwash the next generation into accepting the police state that is already here.

Nothing is an accident. Leaks are not leaks. Reports are not reports. Polls are not polls. The agenda is hidden in plain sight because peacock proud psychopaths like to show their work.

  1. My sentiments exactly. It’s all metaprogramming! But we’re slowly learning to look for the hidden subtext first. It reminds me of the subliminal messages they were testing out during movies when I was a kid: “Eat Popcorn” for one millisecond, too fast to know it was there, but you’d get a hankering for popcorn. Okay. Except that now the message they’re putting out is “Jump Out The Window.” No way. We won’t do it. Obese, smokers, drinkers, skinny, whatever – we all need medical care. We all need decent housing. We all need education for our kids. We all need decent pay and decent working hours. And we won’t be manipulated into thinking we can’t have it because some people eat too much, or drink too much, or spell “God” the wrong way. We know who -or what- is at fault: the financial-corporate-military complex. And it’s time to put IT on a diet!
