The great benefit of having a government monopoly on healthcare is that the government gets to decide who is eligible to receive healthcare. Here in the United Kingdom, that is a big “AYE” to foreigners who take advantage of our free taxpayer-funded health services and a resounding “NAY” to bigots. Because hatethink (unlike healthcare tourism) is very much illegal.
Under a new NHS policy, patients accused by NHS staffers of intolerance or discrimination are to be denied medical services — a move that many NHS staffers feel has been a long time coming.
“We don’t ‘ave the bleedin resources t’ care for all the immigrants and foreign nationals who come ‘ere, now do we? We’re ‘avin t’ build new ‘ostipals all the bloody time! Why would I bother with some native bigot who refuses t’ use me preferred forms of address? That’s a ‘ate crime, that is — literal violence.”

“‘Oh, I’m sorry — you want a MAN to examine your prostate? Go die in a ditch, you misogynistic old tosser’ — that’s what I’ve been telling ’em.”

Despite being a human right, healthcare is subject to the availability of supplies, equipment, services, labour, and physical space. All of these will remain limited in supply until a Labour government is elected to abolish that wickedly unjust Law of Scarcity the Tories put in place.
The Americans are fortunate not to be governed by such a law, as evidenced by the Democrats’ eagerness to provide free taxpayer-funded healthcare to persyns of illegal entry.
Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren have even promised to abolish private healthcare, which would allow them to deny their own bigots access to medical care — namely TERFs and Trump supporters. So perhaps the gulags will not be necessary after all.
