If only we had national health care

The Sun Newspaper Online - Toothache boy nearly died. Tell me again why national health care is so good? So I can put my life in the hands of government agency? No thanks.
Peter Owen, 19, was in agony for a week as he tried SIX times to have a tooth out.

He was eventually rushed to hospital after an abcess on the tooth swelled so much that it blocked his windpipe.

Peter had an emergency tracheotomy — where a breathing tube is inserted through a hole in the throat — and was on life support for two days.
Thanks to Sir George at the Rottweiler Empire.
