Please don't have a go at nine-year-olds just because they're covering murders

Apr
07

I constantly find myself feeling motivated to create journalistic content after indulging in engaging and interesting works of reportage, whether it be a Louis Theroux documentary, an episode of Serial, or even a documentary like Going Clear or The Thin Blue Line. However, this week I stepped away from BBC iPlayer and iTunes and found inspiration in an unlikely form - a nine-year-old girl from Pennsylvania.

The NHS- the unappreciated gift

Mar
23

 

Since its conception, the NHS has strived to provide free healthcare to the people of Britain. The key word there being FREE. People seem all too quick to criticise the amount we pay in tax towards the NHS without thinking about the huge benefits it brings to millions. The concept of being able to provide lifesaving treatment to those who would not otherwise be able to afford it is something we should be loudly proud of, not complaining about.

All you have to do is look across the pond to America to see what life without the NHS would look like. They have to pay for any care they want or need, as if we have any control over accidents or illnesses. Sure, we would pay less in tax, or free up billions of pounds to spend elsewhere, but that’s not the point. The fact that we don’t have to worry about a serious injury financially crippling us is something I’m sure everyone wants to keep. Imagine if Breaking Bad had happened in Britain, under the NHS it would have been no problem.
