Don’t thank me you tit

Josie Cunningham

Josie Cunningham has had a boob job. No it’s not news until you find out it cost us £4,800 on the NHS. Here’s a woman who wanted to be a glamour model and got a “free” operation to help her confidence and we paid for it.

I can feel the anger and bile stirring so I’ll try to get through this blog without exploding.

Here’s a few lines from the Sun website:

Josie, previously a 32A, added: “My new boobs have changed my life. Now I  can’t  wait to do topless and swimsuit photo shoots and become 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.”

Josie will leave Harley, five, and two-year-old Frankie — her children from a  previous relationship —  with her parents while she chases her Jordan  modelling dream she said: “I don’t earn much, but I think I will get used to living the  high life very easily. 

“I already have showbiz connections as my friend’s boyfriend was a contestant  on the Apprentice and I’ve been to clubs like Trader Vic’s and to the  Dorchester Hotel. 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.”

Just a few points I’d like to make on this:

  • Firstly she admits the size of her breasts were never really a problem – so she lied to her doctor
  • She earns £9,000 as a call centre worker but spends money on Louis Vuitton bags. Wee question how much is she getting in terms of housing welfare and other hand outs?
  • Leaving two kids behind to show off fake breasts should never be seen as a dream – it’s a disgrace
  • She actually looked better before the operation
  • Why is this acceptable at all and why did nobody stop it at any point?

In a country where NHS staff are being screwed left, right, and centre with pay freezes and changes to pensions and working conditions how can anyone justify this kind of operation for this kind of person? I have no issue with cosmetic surgery in general, but I don’t think this is a legitimate use of my taxes. She has the audacity to thank us and is not in the least embarrassed.

The NHS website has this information:

In 2011, just over 10,000 women had breast implant surgery for cosmetic purposes.

Breast implants can be used for two purposes:

  • reconstructive – to reconstruct the breast mound following a mastectomy (the surgical removal of the breast often used to treat breast cancer)
  • cosmetic – to enhance the size and shape of the breast

No-one will disagree with the first one, but with the second there needs to be more stringent checks and balances when you consider the length of waiting lists for much more serious and vital surgery. Ten thousand women had cosmetic breast surgery on the NHS last year and I’m sure that 99% of them were justifiable, but this is not and she should be made to pay the money back.
