British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak thinks the NHS is not good enough for him and his family, and admitted on Wednesday he is using private healthcare. Sunak admitted he is using a privileged NHS alternative, breaking weeks of silence over whether he had any experience of Britain's state-run National Health Service which is in crisis and a state of total chaos.
With thousands of nurses and ambulance workers on strike over pay, Sunak has been repeatedly asked by journalists and opposition lawmakers over whether he uses the NHS or gets private treatment which offers a quicker service.

Some critics have argued that Sunak, one of the wealthiest politicians in British history, is out of touch with those workers demanding higher wages to keep up with inflation and have doubted whether he could appreciate the strains the NHS is facing if he and his family did not use the service.

"I am registered with an NHS GP" he told parliament, during the weekly session of prime minister's questions.

So, the situation is simple and clear. The public health services in the UK are striking because they want adequate pay. The strikes prevent the general public from receiving essential health services. But the government refuses to grant health care workers a fair wage. The government does not care about the strikes because strikes do not harm them as individuals, since they have private - and privileged - health services.

And the prime minister obviously doesn't care about the public because the public didn't vote for him anyway. Sunak is not a democratically-elected leader; he was appointed by very few friends and party members, not by the British voters.

The government prefers to pay the money they could have paid to the NHS workers to Ukraine. Not because they care about Ukraine, of course, but because the members of the government are interested in making more money for themselves - just like the healthcare workers.

And there are a lot of kickbacks to be had in the so-called “foreign aid” and weapons businesses with 3rd world countries, especially those which have a deep bribe culture such as Ukraine. So obviously it is better for the government to deal with them rather than the NHS. Because after all the NHS is supposed to serve the general public, and not the upper class.
