MVNHS©: "We don't play favorites"

That is, doesn't matter if you're a factory worker or an elected government official, your life (or that of your loved one) really doesn't count for much in Jolly Old:

"Ann Clwyd broke down as she spoke about the final moments of Owen Roberts, who contracted pneumonia after being admitted [to a hospital]. They had been married nearly 50 years."

"[H]er husband was squashed against the side of his bed, his lips dry, and cold from a fan that had been turned on for a patient in an adjacent bay."

Through the looking glass, indeed.

But hey, don't just take my word for it:
