Im not saying it is the same. However, the UK seems to have a different view on rights -- isnt same sex marriage legal there?

Technically no. We have what you call a "Civil Partnership", it is exactly the same as Marriage in every sense possible. The same legal rights and everything, the only thing that is different is the name and that was just to appease the religious lot BUT everyone calls it a Marriage anyway because it basically is. There was a bit of an uproar however as hetrosexual couples started demanding the right to have a Civil Partnership which only homosexual couples can have lol



HOWEVER homosexual couples have now been granted the right to "Marriage". By 2015 Gay Marriage it will be fully legal throughout the entire UK :D The country I live in within the UK is Scotland and we were the first to perform a Civil Partnership and Gay Marriage will be legal here first too so we will be the first to perform a Gay Marriage. So yes Human Rights are quite a big thing here in the UK and out of the 4 Countries that make up the UK Scotland is normally the first to push the legislation through our Paliment and set the example with these things. So being a Scot, as you can probably imagine I'm very human rights lol

Oh don't tell me you don't understand the meaning of hypocrite either? There seriously can't be another one, I mean the definition isn't that complicated, it's really very simple. Do you need it spelled out too or do you think you could manage that all by yourself?

No. Nationally it's not, nor is it recognized in other states outside of the states that allow it.

We have a half and half system. Medicare (our version of NHS) covers things like emergency rooms, hospital cover, maternity cover, certain non-elective operations, all child health cover until the child is 16, and all health care for people on a pension or low income. It also 'co-pays' for things GP visits (we have what's called a gatekeeper system), dental care, some specialist care, ultrasounds ... things like that. If you want an elective (purely non-medical) procedure done, or private hospital/maternity cover, chiro, physio, naturopath etc ... then you can get private health insurance. Mine is currently $56 a month for 2 of us with basic hospital coverage and things like major dental, ambulance cover, physio, chiro, and gym memberships.

The UK doesn't have "States", it is made up of 4 Countries. At the moment there are no Countries where it is legal but is has been passed and is to be in place in each Country by 2015 so I don't understand your answer at all.

Ah I see well that is slightly different, still sounds quite good though. How is Medicare viewed then, does it have quite a good reputation?

I think that's a good idea. Basics are free to everyone and elective things are your choice. I'd pay $52 a month just to get chiro cause we'd pay more than that for SO to go twice a month. It's $35 a visit. We work for a community center so our gym membership is free though haha
