Healthcare Myths and Facts

I was on McSweeney's and I quite enjoyed this piece of analysis within commentary on the American healthcare debate... Can't help but feel he might just have hit the nail on the head there!

MYTH:

People in Britain are deeply unhappy with their socialized medicine system, which ours will become.

FACT:

People in Britain are deeply unhappy with everything. It is their only source of happiness.

Might I venture to suggest a further fact?

We British simply LOVE to queue, even when there's no reason to do so; I offer, as an example a recent experience in Sainsbury's when, stood about waiting for a companion to purchase his lunch, 7 people promptly formed an orderly line behind me.
Go figure...!

Very true - in fact, I'm sure the M25 was designed with our national preferences in mind!
