More like the makings of a Lifetime channel movie plot.

-1 to subby for blatant headline abuse.

socialized medicine... demands payment

*brain breaks*

The headline is both funny and irritating, and I'm sure will inspire many conservative conspiracy theories about the evils of socialized "anything".

The NHS summed up in one sentence.

"Remember, the vaccine is free of charge. At no point will you be asked to pay. The NHS will never ask you for your bank account or card details."

Though technically there is a fixed prescription charge of £9 (about $12) for prescriptions. Unless you are a child, retired, unemployed or diabetic, in which case there is no charge.

Psychologists must find it fascinating to study sociopaths.

Article doesn't say how they caught him. Or how many other people he might have tried it on.

I'm thinking no, it's just deja vu for some of us.

He then jabbed her in the arm with a "dart-like implement" and told her to pay £160, which he claimed would be refunded. It is unknown what was injected.

There's a special place in hell for people who prey upon the elderly like this.

Old people should be neglected, not abused.

Hello, can we have your liver?

Can't say I've ever injected myself/anyone else with IV drugs, but I never minded being stuck with a needle by a medical person.

They don't really appreciate it when you joke and point out your veins are easy to find, and I could probably be great candidate to be a heroin addict if I wanted to be. :(

johnny_vegas: Again?


Yes. The vaccines used in the UK require 2 injections.

Was there a brazzers logo shown at any point during the "injection"

Remember the judge who ordered the repeat child molester to be dyed green?

I'm starting to think she was on to something...

Let's start with "I'm an ASSHOLE" should be tattooed on his forehead.

Hey Ladies, now that I'm recovering from Covid, I've got a new all organic natural way to vaccinate you.

More like  "sicko takes advantage of poor elderly woman because he's a sick, scamming f**k"?

End of story. No idiotic suggestion of conspiracy theories needed.

We really do need special hells for those that take advantage of the elderly with scams and such.  Especially something like this.

This has been green lighted more than once .... are you guys trying to deflect or what?

I heard she became suspicious when her 5G reception didn't improve at all.

150 pounds?

fist to face with the force of 150lbs sounds like a good payment. Heck overpayment would be ok too.

Hopefully he will get to enjoy several years in prison, if not more.

Since I was diagnosed with cancers in December, 2016, I no longer even notice injections. I'm just a big pink pincushion. Once, it took 17 tries to get a stab right and since each nurse was allowed only 3 sticks each, we began running out of people available and had Staff had to go looking for someone else who could try. It got to the point where we had a small crowd and were laughing about it, even me. It was one of those deep sticks where they wanted marrow or something (May, 2017, I forget the reason, just the laughing. - Let's face it, life is short: either you laugh or you cry. I'd rather laugh.)

Now, this detestable bastard is the reason we do need jails. He should not be allowed in public. (Yes, I know it's in the UK, but it applies in the US, Canada, and every other civilized place.) Jails should house the violent. Someone who stabs an elderly person with a sharp object on purpose is violent and should be put away. Stop wasting cell space on forgers and candy thieves and put the violent and repeat offenders away, those who obstinately refuse to learn. The violent and recidivists. The rest can have their free time taken up hand-wiping blades of grass in large parks or whatever.  Get the violent off the damn streets: rapists and kiddy-diddlers & pet-pesterers and drunk-rollers and so on.
