Not so Great Britain (U.K)

U.K today......

* Pay your tv licence for the BBC channels even if you never, ever watch them.

* Pay the grossly unfair & crippling council tax for less services,

* Pay a higher price for everything than any other country.

* Don't get too fat, unhealthy or smoke as the NHS will not treat you
taking illegal, recreational drugs is ok though).

* Be unable to find an NHS dentist or afford to pay a private one.

* Be better off financially if you were a single parent, working or not.

* Be unable to buy your own home without large amounts of money from parents.

* Sell your home to pay for your care in old age.

* Realise that if you smoke you are the lowest of the low.

* Be unable to smoke in a working truck (even when you are off the clock & live in it).

* Shoplifting, stealing & violence will get a lesser punishment in court than smoking in a pub
or under a shelter with sides & roof ie a bus shelter.

* Understand completely why most of the UK want to leave this country.

2 people have experienced mischief:

They refuse treatment to smokers?

Wow! Not someplace I would care to live. I can do without the smoking though. I'm horribly allergic to it.
