    Private education and healthcare should be illegal. Pretty radically left wing I know

    That's an interesting viewpoint, why?

    In most cases rehabilitation is pointless and chances are they will re-offend regardless.
    We cannot afford to babysit everyone.
    Oh really? I wonder why the Scandinavian countries, such as Norway have the lowest re offending rates? Maybe it's because their focus is on rehabilitation, less on barbaric punishments and actually treating the prisoners like human beings.

    Education should be better and exams should be harder.
    I would agree on exams being harder if teachers would teach well as they should and to start from early age (starting from primary school).

    Abortion is wrong is so many levels, it should be banned in my opinion.
    Many people will say that it is the woman's choice or it was unexpected etc... but if a woman is not ready for a child they should not go around having sex...

    Not even protected sex? What about protected sex within a marriage? I'm just thinking, for example, of a case where a woman is married with 2 children and can't possibly support another one, and what she would do if the pill didn't work or the condom split. Would you then say she should not 'go around having sex' with her husband because she's not ready for a child?

    That's not even getting on to the subject of rape.

    By the way I'm not necessarily attacking your view on abortion, just your narrow minded view on who can or can't have sex.

    I believe that any woman that enjoys having promiscuous sex life,should get her tubes tied.

    Is that actually an argument? Because people are sadly obsessed with the punishment of those who have committed a crime. Whether it works or not, to some people they think it is right to punish. These people have been holding back improvements in the prison systems in our less progressive societies.

    offenders committing serious crimes and getting life just to sit in prison for the rest of their lives doesn't take away from the fact they've destroyed peoples lives. I think some states have it right in america and should be killed.

    Either that obese people should be subject to state enforced diet and exercise regimes and struck from national health benefits.

    Or that third wave feminism along with mass immigration will bring about the genocide of the white race.

    Social mobility is hugely limited due to the fact that it is the richest people I society who are able to afford the best education. Surely a far better system would be if it was those with the strongest and weakest academic abilities who attended the smaller, specialist schools in order to stretch out strongest minds and support those who struggle?

    The idea that someone could die from a condition that someone else survives simply because they have less money is frankly disgusting to me. Not to mention healthcare for a profit will ever end well!

    Private healthcare takes pressure of the NHS if anything. Without it the NHS would struggle even more. Also it's rare that private hospitals are doing life saving operations as they are usually smaller units with less capacity to look after critically ill patients. Instead they specialise in relatively small pre planned procedures that people are willing to pay for to avoid waiting times in the NHS and to get consultants looking after them.

    If you made private healthcare illegal there would be even more pressure on the NHS which would lead to further delays in treatment which itself has the potential to be life threatening. Not to mention private hospitals treat NHS patients too.

    Frankly I can't see the NHS surviving in its current state unless we look to privatise more operations.

    That's backwards. Leaving all the expensive, difficult and time consuming procedures for the NHS, as well as all the complications for the 'simple' ones drains it of resources (private hospitals don't have ITUs, A&Es, and often won't be the ones fixing any problems post op).

    You're essentially taking all the profitable stuff away and leaving the NHS with the dog crap.

    There's a reason none of the private companies want to tackle any actual medicine/required treatments, just look at Circle in Hitchingbrooke recently pulling out years too early because they can't hack it but still maintaining their cush/highly profitable orthopedics contracts elsewhere.

    Agreed. But I find it sickening how there is little to no awareness of the cruelty of horse sport.

    There are private hospitals that do long procedures and have intensive care units so your first point frankly isn't true.

    As for the "dog****", you will see all of the operations done in the private sector on NHS operating lists every single week.

    If people have the means to pay for their care, why shouldn't they? The alternative is further clogging up of waiting times for everyone else who has to depend on the NHS. Besides, people who use private health care are still paying for the NHS regardless.

    Nope, not really.

    I think violent sexual predators, child murderers and sadistic killers should be exterminated, perhaps the wording is a bit strong but I can't understand why the sentiment is so controversial.

    Its a fact, you cannot say nope not really...
