"A mother turned up at a hospital accident and emergency department to demand that doctors remove dog mess 'safely' from her daughter’s shoe. The case is said to be an extreme example of a rise in 'irresponsible' visits to The Whittington Hospital in Archway sparked by the chaos in the 111 helpline. The hospital....saw an 11.5 per cent year-on-year rise in attendances to casualty after April’s chaotic launch of the phone line left patients unsure where to turn to for help....Other trivial complaints included patients complaining of common colds and headaches....Martin Klute, chairman of Islington council’s health committee, branded the mother a 'nutcase' and said: 'I’m lost to explain why someone should behave as stupidly as that'.”
Thanks to Lord Leveson and his beloved European Union you won't be able to call this woman a nutcase in future - or a stupid bitch, come to that.
For the seemingly casual attitude we Brits have towards deadly snakes, see here and also here.
