I know you can never trust those British tabloids, but here is a story that i hope is not true: "I pulled out my own teeth"
TONY Blair yesterday faced a woman who pulled out SEVEN of her teeth after failing to find an NHS dentist.
Great-grandmother Valerie Halsworth, 64, removed them with her husbands pliers.
She pulled out a seventh tooth over the weekend before meeting the PM in Coventry yesterday.
The cleaner, from Scarborough, North Yorks, has a gum disease that causes her teeth to loosen.
Under fire ... Tony Blair is questioned live on air
Mr Blair told her: I cant suddenly just produce more dentists. We have to train them. I cant force them from the private sector into the NHS.
Valerie said: Mr Blair didnt seem as though he had an answer.
The ten teeth I have got left are OK. But in another month or two Im going to need a dentist.
It would be nice for somebody to take them out properly for me.
I have a feeling that socialized healthcare was not the only reason this person pulled their own teeth (though i bet it helped a good bit). Sometimes the problems of the world are not socialism, but a person's own stupidity.
