I have just had a very interesting conversation with an eminent oncological clinician, surgeon and academic.
I have received the very best of advice about the management of my cancer, Alowishus (leaving aside the details).
- Don’t get Covid19. Self isolate and don’t take risks.
- Don’t get hospitalised with Covid.
In the current crisis ‘people’ will make decisions who don’t have the expertise to make those decisions.
If there are two patients who want to live and one has ‘cancer’, even if that isn’t going to immediately kill them, then the one without cancer will get treatment and the one with cancer won’t be treated because they’ll die anyway (wrong) because of scarcity – and ‘hard decisions need to be made’ when there’s not enough to go around. Those dying don’t need respirators. This is me! For fuck’s sake!
The dying don’t need respect as they expire – statistics.
Excuse me! What the fuck is this? Eugenics?
We all have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,
I have been angry for weeks with the government’s incompetence but now I have reached the limit of my tolerance.
There is a cynicism here that is beyond my understanding.
Come on folks, we all have the right to care and life and not be left to the decisions of politicians who only love their privilege, who lie, who spin their shit as if it was sweet candyfloss.
I piss on them.
What of our real stars, the nurses, assistants, researchers, doctors and administrators who believe in the Hippocratic oath and who will die ‘on the front line’ because of this government’s total failure to protect them and us, as we, fight for life?
When this is done there is a reckoning to come. We will not go back to the status quo. Organise now. This is an opportunity to make a new future for human kind.
