    I wonder what the effect will be of the propagation of MUS "treatment" around the NHS? I'm sure it will affect life expectancy for many people.

    I think it's bound to. I havent met that many people with ME but of the people I have met:

    One died of cancer that was diagnosed very late - quite possibly because she already had a diagnosis of ME. At least her carer felt it was a factor.

    One was referred by her GP to a surgeon who spent the whole of the physical exam belittling her because she had ME. She was told she needed non urgent surgery and the waiting list was 6 months plus. She told her GP who sent her to someone else, but didn't tell the second surgeon about the ME. He told her it was urgent and he wanted surgery carried out ASAP, preferably within the month. She asked him what would happen if she waited 6 months and her told her she would probabbly die.

    I assume with MUS it can on!y be worse.

    We already know that the mentally ill are less likely to receive the treatment they require.

    Britain is bent on commiting civilizational suicide. “Slowly at first, then all at once.”

    I think that strategy is called population control.

    Yes, I think there is a lot of that in current government practice and thinking, but they just keep their fingers crossed that the plebs won't notice and won't start a revolution. I think they are safe enough, at least in the UK, sadly.

    An blog at Ecclesia about this suggested a link to the UK's benefit cuts:

    Yes, my original link mentions austerity and benefit/welfare cuts at some length, and makes it clear the authors believe they are very relevant to UK life expectancy, and very likely a cause of the reduction.

    Eugenics as a social philosophy is real. There is simply an expansion of the means of accomplishing it.
