Read this story about how the N.H.S. will be denying smokers treatment until they change their habits and stop smoking. This gels with the earlier story about obese patients being denied hip or knee surgery until they lose weight. Now I’m not arguing with the premise that smoking is bad for the health of the smoker; in fact I am a reformed smoker myself, cutting down from sixty a day to zero in a week!
However, I do believe in the old idea of ‘sauce for goose’ etc., so I am wondering why we have seen no stories about homosexuals being denied extremely expensive treatments for H.I.V. and A.I.D.S, because they brought all their problems on themselves by their perverted lifestyles and sexual preferences!
