Chez le Docteur

In the November edition of New English Review, Dr. Dalrymple explains to his faithful readers why he prefers going to his doctor in Paris rather than the one in England.

The unpleasant aspects of health care in Britain are universally acknowledged, are well-known, and a cause of wonderment to all Western Europeans. I have come to the conclusion, however, that it is precisely these aspects that appeal so strongly to the British. How else is fairness to be guaranteed, other than by ensuring that everyone is humiliated and made to feel that he is privileged to receive anything at all?
