Idiocy from Polly Toynbee

From the Graun:
But the purpose of CCGs is to bring in maximum competition. NHS services will find themselves bidding against the likes of Virgin Care or the American giant United Healthcare, which are likely to cherry-pick easy and profitable services – diagnostics, routine pre-planned surgery and simple treatments – leaving behind A&E, the frail, the old and anything that is unpredictably expensive.
If they're easy, they're not particularly profitable, because if they're easy, lots of people can compete for them. Really, supply and demand economics, do you speak it, Polly?

As it happens, this is exactly what we want. Plenty of people can remove ingrowing toenails, so let there be a market in them. For the tasks like building bionic arms that a couple of people are working on, and will form a monopoly, keep them in the NHS (and once we've got lots of people doing bionic arms, create a market).

The result of communism - your daughters become whores

I noticed that recently on Tim Worstall's website that there's lots of ads from pretty women from Vietnam looking for husbands. OK, it's not exactly whoring, but well, they're pretty girls looking for rich men in the west, so, well, it's whoring, and well, they are in a communist country.

The collapse of the Berlin wall led to the porn industry being filled with porn actresses from Eastern Europe.

I'll bet that when Cuba opens up, that within a few months, the porn industry will be filled with Cuban women.
