We pass you to this genius at Investors Business Daily:
People such as scientist Stephen Hawking wouldn’t have a chance in the UK, where the National Health Service would say the life of this brilliant man, because of his physical handicaps, is essentially worthlessNo, your life is worthless, you ignorant sack of shite. Hands off our Hawking, hands off our NHS, and start to take responsibility for your own stupidity.
ETA Pandagon manages to be more cheerful and humorous about it than me.
perhaps they think that Hawking is on the run in his homeland? That he’s always outwitting the NHS’s attempts to track him down and kill him... you’d think there’d be a documentary about brave Stephen Hawking, always on the move, always evading the NHS in a series of narrow, harrowing escapes.Great idea for a Hollywood action movie. Hawking played by Bruce Willis, leaping out of a hospital window in his motorised chair, just ahead of a massive explosion. '*Yippy-i-yay*, *you socialist bastards*'.
