    I fundamentally disagree with private healthcare, but to be honest I'm pretty indifferent about the whole thing.

    i dont think its bad at all, but the OP's views on this seems to be based on the notion that the parents and child are kenyan.

    NB: That's private healthcare in a country with pre-existing nationalised healthcare.

    Private healthcare's fine if you don't have the NHS or similar in your country.

    I heard that he treats his students badly, any truth in the rumour?

    This was covered, I made a joke about it, it was obviously unintentional. Actually after re-reading I'm not sure if you're being sarcastic or not >_<.

    This is the bit I would take exception to.
    I've only been at one formal with Stephen Hawking so I wouldn't know about the students.

    I'm not being sarcastic, there really are people on here who are missing limbs!

    I don't know which part you're taking exception to, sorry

    I took exception to only helping 'your own', AKA, help people who happened to be born in the same country as you before those who need it the most.

    oh ok. i meant two kids who had the same problems. obviously you'd help a dying kid first rather than one who's just got hayfever or whatever!
