Ideas like those proposed by Milord Warner and his 'independent' thinktank don't appear out of thin air for no reason at all. They are designed to wear down resistance to the notion of health service charging, slowly and over time. Propose something that appears outrageous at first, and follow it with something later that appears more modest in comparison but is essentially the same thing watered down. It is an old, old political con trick.

 

Right on cue, and as predicted (although I wouldn't have expected the gap to be a mere 48 hours) here's another 'independent' thinktank proposing NHS charges as the way forward. We are, slowly but surely, being softened up.

 

NHS charges 'should target the rich and elderly', says King's Fund think-tank
New charges should be introduced for richer patients and pensioners and for visiting the GP, a major new study concludes today.
