Well, the Baron won't be using Yahoo any more...and hopefully, a number of Europeans won't, either.

It's several pages of propaganda about hwo they want your data to make everythying better for you and provide you with the best service, a bunch of fluff about caring about and protecting your privacy...and then...."Hey, we want to sell your data to other companies", not to mention "trusted partners", who can and will, then, sell that data to other people.

Yahoo is probably setting up their third party paper companies already to avoid liability for the mother company.

I applaud the EU for the regulations, but there will be some growing pains. The tech giants aren't just going to abide by the spirit of the law when their entire business empire is built on collecting and selling personal data.

This will be fun to watch over the next few years.

No more using Yahoo as a source for the Baron, though. My data is mine. You want it, pay me motherfuckers.
If you want my DNA, retinal patterns, or anything else, then make me an offer.
I will not surrender my property rights to my data. If you want it, buy it. I don't need your services, after all. I'll enjoy watching you die slowly.

This is a very interesting, but long article. Good way to bone up on what is coming for the EU. (Looking at you, Deutsche Bank).

The EU is Rotting (and Its Banks are Insolvent)

LOL. Exit the EU but keep the Euro. Yeah, if this is what passes as proper writing these days, we're all fucked.

This is a seriously disturbing but incredibly well researched article on the Muslim rape gangs in Britain that have been systematically swept under the rug by the leftist government for fear of being branded racist and the right to free speech. What it is and isn't.

They have the same problem in Germany, and some whistleblowers in the police leaked the internal crime data that contradicted the government data a couple of years ago.

It's not specific to the UK, it's an EU thing.

EDIT 2: Incidentally, I have been a bit out of touch recently with what the news is reporting...have they bothered to report on Paris burning?

My friends in Lithuania have told me that refugees are leaving Lithuania because the Lithuanians aren’t tolerating the BS that is happening in many other European countries. Good for them.

How predictable.
Not that I want to defend this shit, because I really don't, but it hasn't been voted into law and it could still be defeated when the vote comes sometime next year. There are a lot of digital rights groups and other fairly strong stakeholders opposing this measure and it's worth noting that the legal committee was split 13:12 in votes for/against.

Fingers crossed it dies a silent death.

It's Time to Give Up on Britain's National Health Service

Our National Health Service just turned 70! According to a recent article in The Guardian by Polly Toynbee , The NHS is our religion in the UK and that's why the conservative government can't destroy it. Of course, the Conservative government have never actually tried to destroy the NHS. They haven’t even reduced the amount spent on the NHS. They haven’t even halted increases in healthcare spending. The only thing they have done is reduced the rate at which spending is going to continue to increase.

Before the National Health Service was created in Great Britain our nation was a world-leader with an unrivalled record in making major medical breakthroughs. People came from all over the globe to study medicine, and to be treated in the UK. Dr. John Snow proved that the source of cholera epidemics was the water supply in London. Edward Jenner pioneered a vaccine for smallpox in rural England, and Sir Almroth Wright one for typhoid. Sir Humphrey Davy, also a Briton, first suggested the use of nitrous oxide as an anaesthetic in 1800. Sir Joseph Lister pioneered the use of antiseptics in operations in 1865 using impure carbolic acid, saving countless people dying from infections after surgery. Alexander Flemming, the Scottish physician discovered Penicillin in one of the charitable hospitals in London in 1928. Howard Florey and Ernst Chain, brought it to fruition working in a laboratory in Oxford in 1941. Britain had established the best record in the world for achieving major medical advances and had just developed the landmark drug of the 20th century, as well as playing a leading role in 5 out of the 7 leading medical breakthroughs between 1750 and 1948 when the NHS was established.1 Britain is no longer a leader in medical advances. Despite its costliness, nepotism, and other flaws, America’s private system has taken the lead.

Britain has less of the latest equipment and the old equipment is often being kept beyond the time when it is safe.2 If a private company was using out of date intensive care machines and x-ray machines, obsolete cancer care equipment, and operating tables over twenty years old – double their safe life span – the champions of the NHS would no doubt be clamouring for more government oversight and regulation. When government agencies are culpable, they are more or less given a pass on public outrage because they are perceived to be acting in the public interest rather than for profit.

In the UK we cannot compete with cancer survival rates in the US. A 2011 report demonstrated that the average cancer survival rate was 71.18% in the USA as compared to 54.48% in England.3 Our healthcare may be free at the point of service, but fewer of us survive it. It is costly in terms of lives. In fact, the BBC recently ran an article that reported “patients ‘dying in hospital corridors’.”4 In one month 300,000 patients were made to wait in emergency rooms for more than four hours before being seen, with thousands more suffering long waits in ambulances before even being allowed into the emergency room.

The sad reality is that in the UK or Canada people die waiting in line for what would be quick and routine medical treatments in the US. In Britain a shocking 4 million people languish on waiting lists according to official sources5 up from a 7 year high of 3.4 million in 2015 as reported by The Guardian, a left-leaning newspaper,6 and this in a population of scarcely over 65 million. At current trends this number is set to rise above 5 million in 2019 unless we do something to reverse them.7

In the UK you could turn up to an emergency room with an appendix about to burst and still be asked to wait overnight before they find you a bed. One patient reported that a lack of treatment rooms led hospital staff to examine her for gynaecological problem which had left her in severe pain and bleeding in a busy corridor, in full view of other patients. Such humiliating anecdotes could be dismissed as embarrassing one-offs were it not for the shocking fact that as many as 120 patients per day are being attended to in corridors and waiting rooms, in the public areas of hospitals, and some even dying prematurely as a result. In the first week of 2018, over 97% of NHS trusts in England were reporting levels of overcrowding so severe as to be “unsafe.”8

25% of British cardiac patients die waiting for treatment, and an investigation by a British newspaper found that delays in treatment for colon and lung cancer patients have been so long that 20% of cases were incurable by the time they finally received care.9 193,000 NHS patients a month wait beyond the target time of 18 weeks for surgery.10 According to the OECD Britain has the lowest number of doctors per thousand population in the advanced world.11 A chart displayed in James Bartholemew’s book The Welfare State We’re In in 20 documented that while only 1% of patients of patients in the USA had to wait over four months for surgery, while the number was 12% in Canada, 17% in Australia, 22% in New Zealand, and a shocking 33% in the UK.12

Where free-at-the-point-of-entry resources are limited older patients are viewed as a drag on the system – especially since they require the most frequent care which costs much more. The average 65-year-old costs the NHS 2.5 times more than the average 30-year-old. An 85-year-old costs more than five times as much.13 Although a third of all diagnosed cancers in the UK are found in patients seventy-five and over, only one in fifty lung cancer patients over seventy-five receives surgery, and the NHS does not even provide cancer screening to patients over the age of sixty-five.14

The government can make waiting lists look shorter by denying patients services outright because those who have been refused services will no longer appear in statistics. If someone’s disease proves fatal because they failed to receive treatment in time, the government figures appear more cost effective because instead of having to budget for a series of expensive surgeries, they have a deceased person on their hands who will not rack up a whole lot of medical accounts. It’s not to say that anyone is perniciously trying to kill off patients, but with pressure constantly mounting for officials to show meaningful improvements, the incentive to coldly take advantage of manipulated statistics “for the greater cause of saving the NHS” will always loom. It is, after all, our religion. In one interview, prominent columnist Dr. Dalrymple reported “Managers going around the wards telling the doctors who they thought ought to be discharged. They had no medical training or knowledge. But they would try and influence the doctors to discharge patients quickly… This is a problem, of course, wherever the person paying for the care is not the patient himself… But where you have one giant organization that decides everything the hazard is even greater.”15

The failings of socialised medicine are invariably blamed on budget cuts and a lack of funding by advocated of the NHS who are used to expecting medical services to be paid for by the government. The assumption is that if we were just spending more money none of this would be happening. The thing is, we are spending more money than ever before already.



In fact, the budget of the NHS doubled in real terms between 1995 and 2015 and now waiting lists are longer than ever!16 This is because the shortages and inferiority of services are not caused by a lack of funding in the first place. They are caused by how we are choosing to pay for healthcare.

Odd that the article doesn't mention that Brexit has caused a flood of doctors and nurses to piss off back to the EU...

Also the ER claims seem wholly unjustified. I've never ever had to visit the ER and been asked to wait overnight. Sure, four hours sometimes, but overnight? Nah.

Longest we've been was when my daughter had some virus that gave her a stupidly high fever (basically there was a fear that it was meningitis), but even then we were only there for six hours and that was predominantly because we had to wait for lab results.
Now, caveat: We live in London and things may be different here than in other parts of the UK; I've only ever been to an ER outside of London once, but that was in a fairly affluent area, so those experiences may not be representative either.

On the whole, though, ER experience seems much the same as in the US.
