Gordon Brown's self-induced illness

Letters

'Patients to lose weight before NHS treatment'

"Patients could be required to stop smoking, take exercise or lose weight before they can be treated on the National Health Service, Gordon Brown has suggested." (Telegraph)

If this farcical idea is implemented, I hope that the NHS will be able to claw back the cost of several month's hospital care taken by Gordon Brown for his self-induced injury caused by playing rugby. Why should the NHS pay for maternity care, for that matter? It's due to a self-induced condition.

Next victims of crime will get lack-of-response times due to the fact it is their own fault for living in 'shitty areas'.

Yes, crime is our own fault. Why should the bureaucrats dusty sleep be rocked? Save on sirens.

By the way, anyone want data cd's? - I know where to get them. If the News of the World bungs me a few grand, any one of dozens of contacts can provide all the data you like from the Home Office or anywhere else.

A few grand? Exorbitant! I can usually get my gear from some loose-lipped friend from Five.
