For a surprisingly long time, the British were proud of their system of socialized medicine, apparently because it was considered egalitarian. Now, however, a series of scandals in the National Health Service has focused attention on how low-quality government medicine is. The National Health Service has been rocked by one report after another of appallingly bad care, with many Britons demanding that NHS officials be criminally prosecuted.
My, what a surprise! Aren’t you surprised? I’m sure surprised.
Anybody who would trust their health care to the functional equivalent of the Post Office deserves what they get.
