Socialized Medicine horror story du jour

(H/T — Jonah Goldberg @ NRO)

“The grieving widow of a man who died after a six-hour wait at an A&E department has demanded answers from a hospital trust.

Stewart Fleming, 37, arrived at his local hospital with his wife Sarah clutching an urgent note from his doctor saying he must be treated immediately.

But instead of being sent to the head of the queue, Mr Fleming had to sit and wait in agony as a virus ravaged his body, causing his organs to fail.”

What was that about socialized medicine not leading to rationing and the mis-allocation of physician time?

    Just wait until the stories start coming out of this country!

    But then, it will be too late to put the genie back in the bottle.
