And all he wants is the NHS, for which I doubt we'll get much if anything in return.
So once hospital visits are as expensive as they are over the pond that will help reduce the number of cyclists as no-one will be able to afford the £50,000.00 bill for falling off their bike.
No, no - we will be able to afford the cycling falls as long as we're Boomer-gimmers with a house of average value or thereabouts. On your own figures, such gimmer-cyclists will be able to afford about 4 bouts of Trump-care before they are tossed into the street to rummage in the bins for bits of old pizza.
On the other hand, our newly acquired compulsory opioid addiction might cost a bit.
Mind, houses may no longer be worth so much, as no one will be able to afford a-one because the zero-hours "contract" means they too spend all their time rummaging in the bins, if they have an hour or two to spare between their 10 "jobs". Houses will only be bought by Trump-approved rentiers, for use as slave-hutches. Being a buyers market, we will get about £9 each for a house.
Still, Greese-Bogg's hedge fund will be doing all right.
Cugel, watching civilisation go dark.
