Your good health! Or not?

Of all the fatuous surveys here's one to rank alongside the  survey of popular dictators between conducted in 1950 which went:

From this list of current and past dictators, which leader would you trust the most : Adolph Hitler, Benito Mussolini, Moa Tse Tung, Joesph Stalin, or The Emperor Hirohito.  And the clear winner was Moa (he had the biggest fan base)!

In the same vain some numpty has run a survey of 'much loved' British institutions and has concocted a result that has our national health service (NHS) as the clear winner.

Let us remember that this is the same NHS that currently has some £17bn of clinical negligence claims outstanding and where mistakes and incidents of poor care are common - you should read this article in the telegraph!

Its also interesting that whilst scraping the bottom of the barrel the BBC made a spirited entrance at number five.  I think I know why the NHS won - about 1 in 3 people work for this poorly run organisation!  Over the last 10-15 year it has been impossible (politically incorrect) to criticise the NHS and this oversight is in part responsible for the dramatic decline in standards of care.
