    kiskelo reacted to morezone in Pay more tax to fund the NHS   
    The NHS is badly run by people who should not be in the position they are.  As long as they get paid, they don't really care too much about how well they do the job.
    The NHS probably over pays for most of their goods a services.  Suppliers and contractors see the NHS as a cash cow.  Give them a bill and they pay it without question in most cases.  A part time employee of mine some years ago was working as an appreciate electrician.  His company was doing work for the NHS and they were milking them.  They were charging 3X more than they'd charge for other businesses and homes and they could get away with it because the other contractors were doing exactly the same.  Some of the work involved moving sockets but some of the distances involved were laughable.  10cm up, down, left, right and then a bill for a few hundred for half an hours work for a job which they thought was a bit pointless.
    If invoices are queried the management usually just says to pay the bill and don't bother following it up.
    I've heard that getting fired from the NHS is pretty much impossible.  I've heard of perfectly healthy people deliberately going on the sick and working the system and jumping from trust to trust, rising and repeating.  People who have been reprimanded x number of times yet are still employed.  People who are either not good at their job or too lazy to do their job are just moved about rather than being dismissed so more staff are employed to fill the roles and do the work rather than replace the employee.
    Two trusts around here recently merged.  All the ID badge holders and lanyards were replaced with a different coloured one.  Writing pens were also replaced with a new colour.  The old stuff was just thrown out.  They would have been paying top £ for the stuff so multiply by x thousand staff over several hospitals over many many sites and it really adds up.
    I wouldn't mind paying more tax to help fund the NHS if it was run well by competent people.

    Has RM messed up its gold price.

    Will they honour any sales?
    Theoretically you can sell, buy, sell, buy ......... and make a profit each time?

    I can't see what people are getting so irate over this, @BackyardBullion was just reacting to  a couple of requests to add this coin to there order. If he would have waited until the weekend then, due to there popularity, GSB would have been out of stock. He probably saw that they had very low stock and decided to order what  they had left. He was just trying to do a couple of members a favour and I don't have an issue with this. If he was after making a profit he could have kept them to himself and flogged them on at a healthy profit.
    I appreciate everything @BackyardBullion does in organising these bulk orders for everyone and I think everyone else should as well.
