From our Swindon Correspondent:
This isn’t the problem. There isn’t a particular problem with the modern British governments. Remember, politicians ran the Tanganyika groundnut scheme, British Leyland and the GPO that took weeks to get a phone installed, spent a billion on the Millenium Dome and funded Concorde and HS1. If you want to look across the channel, there’s giant bonfires of money like Futuroscope and Berlin Airport and if you look west there’s the F-35 and Amtrak.
The reason the USA doesn’t have a problem with vaccinations isn’t that they’re better governed. It’s that they don’t have a giant bloated bureaucracy like the NHS running health. So, they’re more about outsourcing the vaccination work out to pharmacies, who aren’t going to have a lot of pointless bureaucracy because it costs money (as a side note, the USA’s national folk heroes are servicemen and astronauts rather than nurses).
