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:
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.
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.
