Socialized Medicine: Here's another WTF for you.

A man won the lottery in the UK.

Guess what he wants to spend his winnings on?

Knee replacement surgery.

Why?  Because he tore his cruciate ligament 15 years ago and had to go on disability.

Why was he on disability?

Because NHS will not put you on the wait list for knee replacement until you are 55.

So instead of paying maybe 20k for knee replacement they wanted to pay him disability until he had his surgery.

He tore the ligament when he was 35.

Does that make sense to you?


BTW Google lottery winner and knee replacement and see what you get.


There are a lot of people in the UK who use their lottery winnings to get knee replacement.
