 Which Hospital?
Topic Originator: sammer  
Date:   Sun 5 Apr 22:04

You might think that our free press would be able to tell us which hospital Johnson has been taken to, but so far they have not done this.

I would understand that many will assume it is an NHS Hospital since Johnson is never done saying how much he admires the ‘incredible work’ of nurse and how it is important to save the NHS by staying at home. In fact I would expect him to actually be where he has always been when ill: a private hospital. But that might be a trifle embarrassing in these times of pulling together so we will presumably not to be told, in the national interest of course.

Johnson and his ilk have been trying to undermine the NHS for the last 40 years, for it is a socialist concept therefore must be wrong. This hamfisted lockdown is an attempt to cover up the ‘streamlining’ of the NHS, which used to work at 85% capacity but was recently expected to work at 95% in the name of the God efficiency. Remember the scenes two years ago when Johnson and his chums in parliament waved their order papers and cheered when a motion to increase nurses’ wages was defeated? Probably not. And don’t expect to see it on the BBC anytime soon either.

A clip from the 2017 vote where the Tories voted against against giving the police, firefighters, nhs staff and a while load of other public service workers pay rises above 1%
Coincidentally that footage would have been on the BBC parliament channel and I also found via google a good fee BBC articles on the result of the vote in question.

And although my eyes were open
They just might as well be closed

Would it not be a security risk to advise which hospital he was in? Also potentially attract unwanted and unhelpful attention to that particular hospital.

Security is the last refuge of the scoundrel. As Dr. Johnson nearly said.

Who would want to attack him, any more than the Queen, if he is the leader of a democratically elected government? Is he not our leader against the new enemy, the virus.

I ask again: is he in an NHS hospital receiving NHS care? Answer not to follow very shortly.

Would Putin go to a run of the mill Russian hospital?

St. Thomas’ Hospital has a private wing for those who can afford to pay, which is where Johnson will have been placed initially. But since it’s called St. Thomas NHS that should be enough to convince the credulous that he is in this together with the rest of the population.

Regarding Vladimir Putin he is no more likely to be found in an average ward than Johnson or any other leader for that matter. However Putin has not spent the largest part of his political career trying to privatise public utilities- that was done by the west’s favourite idiot Yeltsin. Putin has attempted to reverse control back into public hands, which is probably the main reason he is a hate figure for the millionaires who control western media. He has also forced many looters of the economy in the 1990s to pay back a whack into the public purse; the ones that haven’t are hiding out around Knightsbridge in London, probably using the private wing of St. Thomas’ when they fall ill.

I'm sure every cent of Putin's estimated $70Bn fortune (Forbes :2012 estimate) was honestly earned. He might have been taking ownership out of their hands and putting it into his.

Forbes magazine is the entertainments section of the Wall Street Journal. They’ve been claiming Russian leaders were all secret millionaires throughout my lifetime yet when they die no one, including immediate family, ever discovers where that wealth is. There is no Khrushchev or Brezhnev dynasty. Yet a look at Forbes home country sees political families who have acquired dizzying amounts of wealth and influence such as Kennedys, Bushes and Clintons.

Russians assume their richest leader was Gorbachev, who had his pockets stuffed with dollars to open up the economy to western interests. His popularity rating is on a par with Tony Blair’s within the UK, and like Blair is often found not to be in the country.

I think nearly every NHS hospital has a section for private services do they not? From that perspective I don't think it would have made any difference.

I also think St Thomas would have been the local hospital for Downing Street so I don't think it's too much of a surprise he is there.

Do Russians really think that about Gorbachev? Sounds like they have been sold a 'stab in the back' myth akin to that which the Nazis latched onto in 1920s Germany.

Private services are currently suspended at NHS hospitals.

I'd be surprised if the Prime Minister wasn't getting preferential treatment. Don't agree with it but it's how things are.
