As long as they increase the morphine, then I can just sleep in a fetal position over in the corner of the floor there...

England's just going down the tubes... AND there's a Labour government in charge. Maybe the Conservatives need to get back in, and make some good changes to the system...

Commence flaming in 5...4...3...

Sorry couldn't resist spouting a quick stereotype, and before you pounce on the fact that Americans are fat please see above and discover that at least one state is working hard to gradually outlaw obesity.

I'm sure JJ_UK will let us know..

And he'll tell us how England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, and Chad are all separate countries even though there's no difference between them (except in the addled British mind), and how dum Canadians are for actually being Americans...

...oooh, I can't wait. Really. And I am just saying that.

In Canada they promise a bed within 16 1/2 weeks at least.

Pedantic - I was waiting for that too... I at least thought I'd get someone to flame me for making a pro-Conservative party remark.... *sigh*

A frail young man just out of intensive care in Plymouth was transferred to Torbay Hospital only to be told: "Sorry, we've no bed for you."

Helen Preston had to nurse her son, Marc, for six hours in a casualty department cubicle.

The 18-year-old had been brought back from the brink after being crushed and trapped under a Transit van in Teignmouth last month.

I had to read this 3 times to figure out that the mom wasn't the 18 year old, and again to ensure that the mom was not breast feeding (nursing) her 18 year old son.

Pronouns people. Pronouns.

Pronouns people. Pronouns.

He. She. We. They. You. You. I. It. Thou. Ye. Whom. His. Theirs. Yours. Mine. Ours. Its. Hers.

That should be enough to keep you going for awhile -- sprinkle liberally over a bed of steamed pasta, season to taste. Serves 8.
