United Kingdom: The EU’s death knell for Britons

Since last year, when Britain first implemented EU rules that prevent anyone from working more than 48 hours a week, hospitals have been disgracefully understaffed, said Melanie Phillips in The Daily Mail.

“Belonging to the European Union can literally kill you,” said Melanie Phillips. Since last year, when Britain first implemented EU rules that prevent anyone from working more than 48 hours a week, hospitals have been disgracefully understaffed. In fact, patients are dying due to “the doctors’ legal requirement to clock off.”

Just last month, at a Somerset hospital, a man admitted with shortness of breath “was forced to wait for more than five hours to see a doctor—by which time he was dead.” In another case, an elderly patient dropped dead because there was just one junior doctor to care for 100 patients. Even patients who survive long enough to get treated receive subpar care, since new doctors, ignorant of their case histories, are “parachuted in” every few days to provide treatment.

The government will try to get an exemption for British doctors from the EU, but it’s unlikely to succeed. In the past, British citizens died defending our sovereign powers. “Now they’re dying because Parliament gave those powers away.”
