Every week Brian gives you his taken on the culture wars, news of the day and whatever crosses his consciousness. Brian is a Jewish expat Brit who’s returned home to his indigenous homeland: Israel. I could be covering Israeli, US or British politics, security resisting global Jihad. Brian’s a Brexiteer, a friend of Tommy Robinson and staunchly pro Western Civilisation.
Today’s podcast covers my recent experiences with the Israeli health system. I think there is a lot to learn: from booking a GP visit online; the efficiencies of the online systems for booking and results; fewer support staff than I remember from the UK; quick appointments.
The whole system isn’t perfect but even though the cost is somewhat obscured to the user at the point of delivery (just like in the UK system), to my eyes it seems to be run comparatively well.
Even though I’m nervous about my entire medical records being online, I must admit they make the entire system much more efficient and it is great to get emails a few hours after a complex test with a link to the full results.
The Hebrew Israelites seem to be the group that kicked the whole Covington Catholic schoolmess off but who are they? That leads onto the whole discussion of why Judaism and Jews are indigenous to Israel and what Jewish indigenous identity is all about!
I’m getting back into podcasting! And this is where I explain what’s going on, why I’m re-releasing the back catalog of Shire Network News and a bunch of other things. Join me and subscribe in your favourite podcast app.
