I was sitting at work earlier. I could do no work because I'm off for a week, and they're backing my stuff up so I can't touch it.
In came some chaps to ask me about some bits we're doing.
We discussed said bits. Anyway, one chap said something about some footballer, I wasn't really taking a lot of notice. Some jolly foreigner chap. Apparently he paid a "witch doctor" for some time, it was like insurance. Then he stopped paying, and broke his leg playing footie. It was an omen.
Then the bloke said "imagine that, you pay and get nothing and then stop paying and anything that happens to you is because you stopped paying the witch doctor. How stupid are people?"
I said "imagine if you paid like hundreds of pounds a week just in case something went wrong? And nothing did? And if you stopped paying all of a sudden something would go wrong?"
"Yes," he said, "Stupid, isn't it?"
"Yes, I replied. I was talking about the NHS."
Goes quiet, doesn't it?
