Tax payers in England are such big fans of big boobs that they’ve decided to use some government funds to pay for plastic surgery. Well, that’s not exactly how things happened.
According to The Sun, Josie Cunningham complained that she suffered emotional distress from her flat (32A) chest. The 22-year-old Telesales girl was eventually able to convince the National Health Service to pay for her boob job.
Cunningham said: “I could never go on holiday as I lived in terror of ever being seen in a bikini and could never set foot outside without a padded bra … The doctors said they’d never seen anything like it and believed me when I burst into tears and told them it was ruining my life.”
So yes, Cunningham’s £4,800 (About $7200) boob job was paid by the tax payers in England. But, no, they are not happy about it.
Matthew Sinclair, chief executive of the TaxPayers’ Alliance, told the Daily Mail: “This is a waste of NHS cash and taxpayers will be stunned that they have been landed with the bill. The NHS is there for people with serious medical needs, not as a means of helping wannabes who fancy a career in modelling. NHS bosses must not allow the system to be manipulated by people wanting cosmetic surgery merely to enhance their career prospects.”
But Cunningham isn’t about to listen to her critics. The young woman says that her new boobs will inevitably lead her to a life of riches and fame.
Cunningham is sure that she’ll become the next Katie Price.
Cunningham said: “My new boobs have changed my life, now I want to be the new Katie Price … I want the world to see the new me and want money and fame just like Katie and my new boobs can make it all happen … I’ve even started to collect Louis Vuitton handbags and have ordered a chihuahua puppy. The sky’s the limit now I’ve got my new boobs — and I can’t thank the NHS enough for giving them to me.”
Andrew Bannister from St. James’s Hospital said that cosmetic procedures aren’t typically funded but there have been exceptions.
Bannister said: “It is not the hospital’s decision whether to fund. Cosmetic procedures are not normally funded, but in some cases there may be exceptional circumstances that allow it to go ahead.”
