Doctors at the London hospitals treating Her Majesty the Queen are getting increasingly annoyed the attitude of the woman they refer to only as ‘ER’, as in “ ’er over there”.
“We have lots of people that age in here”, said one, “and there’s not much you can do for them at that time of life. Basically they are just past their sell by date, so we give them a couple of pills, a bit of rest, a chat and a cup of tea and we send them on their way. But ‘er - she expects to be cured.’
“We can’t go spending the little resources we have on people who aren’t going to last much longer anyway. She’s eighty bloody six for God’s sake - who does she think she is – the Queen of England?”
Another doctor at the hospital complained that the attitude of her husband was not very endearing to the largely African staff. “Which doctor are you?” he allegedly asked one.
