Its not new either. Nevil Shute wrote several novels slamming British socialism in the 50s.

The Far Country (1952): A young woman travels to Australia. A condemnation of British socialism and the national health service.

But, as long as the politicians inform the public that they are aware of the problems, and tell the public that they really, truly sincerely care... they don’t have to do a danged thing to fix the problems. Because they care. No one who cares ever has to actually do anything.

The UK is a great example of what happens when people depend on the government for a service that should be provided privately—no matter how bad the service is, they’re terrified of it being taken away.
