Andrew Dillon, chief executive of Nice, said: “The provisional conclusions on the use of drugs for treating renal cancer are those of an independent appraisal committee whose membership is largely drawn from NHS clinicians in active practice. They understand the issues at stake.”

He said that if the 26 oncologists are to “maintain the credibility of their argument” they must explain which patients “should forgo cost-effective care in order to meet the needs of those with renal cancer”.

May I usurp their authority and propose that savings could be made as follows:

1. £30,000,000 could be saved by closing N.I.C.E. which is merely a QUANGO behind which corrupt politicians shelter their mismanagement of the NHS.

2. £190,000,000 PER ANNUM could be saved by making organ donorship an opt out scheme rather than an opt in scheme. This being the sum spent on those who are on waiting lists for organs spent annually keeping them alive.

3. Upto £300,000,000 which the Health Service spends per annum on tattoo removal QUOTE Baroness Gardiner House of Lords see Hansard.

4. Cease providing any Government employees with ANY aspect of Private Health Care this would not only make massive multi £Million savings but would also ensure the inducement that they ensure the Heath Service is repaired.

5. Cease providing funding for inflation linked pensions for Government employees – since they are indemnified from their incompetence as inflicted on the balance of the public.

6. Place a ceiling on incomes in Government QUANGOs as few if any of these people are employable in the commercial world which is why they flourish in the unaccountable world of sheltered employment in QUANGOs.

  • Be minded of the fact that in the real world high salaries are determined by the ability to generate high profits leading to greater levels of employment and more tax profit for Government – high salaries in QUANGOs and Government merely produce a need for higher taxation and contribute nothing additional to the Country.

7. Cease giving early retirement and compensation for stress related claims – individuals should be free to select whether they do a given job it being their choice to accept the additional incomes of a given job. Stress in employment is a choice: if you are out of your depth and suffering stress hand back the salary you clearly are failing to earn and quit!

8. Cease providing life style care as a given whereby life style care should ONLY be provided once primary Health Care is provided thus saving on:

  • In Vitro Fertilisation.
  • Breast augmentation.
  • Rectal repair when self inflicted for sexual pleasure.
  • VIAGRA & other erectile defficiency drugs.
  • All forms of fertility enhancement.
  • Treatment of any long term condition for aliens & health tourism.
  • Close all councilling services on the Health Service that are not directly medical.
  • Charge for failure to attend appointments.
  • Cease all concepts of gender reassignment.

9. Withdraw from membership of the EUropean Union as clearly we have joined a club we can afford as we are unable to take care of our own people and are paying £1,800,000 per HOUR of British tax payers money (QUOTE Institute of Directors) and are having to kill British Kidney Cancer patients to find the money to fund the Warsaw Underground, Incompetent French farmers, Corrupt Fishing quotas for great maritime nations like Austria and whilst funding Spain to build their roads we permit them to enrich themselves by stealing fish from British fisheries.

10. Surrender the utterly specious Olympic Games which we clearly can not afford as already the budget of £2.8 Billion has already run to £9.3 Billion with an expectation of a final spend wasted on these irrelevant games of £18 Billion where less than 1% of the population will participate meaningfully in the related sports unlike 100% who will have need of the Health Service where the new policy is to Kill Patients who are too costsly.

I do appreciate that Andrew Dillon on his massive salary may well be able to turn a brief phrase in defence of his job and his QUANGO but clearly he is not competent to the job he is paid to do or he would not have made such a staggeringly stupid and ill considered statement regarding the murders he is planning to preside over.
