      Whose fault are the often wretched, chaotic, crowded conditions of Britain’s Accident and Emergency wards?

      I’d like you to consider two reports, one from 1661 and one from 2013. Beyond being about delays, you may think they bear no relation to each other. But they do. They are intimately connected. Try to guess how.

      First, the diarist Samuel Pepys records being stuck in a horse and carriage jam in 17th century London for an hour and a half......

      Whenever you link to The Times, you find you do not get very much further, as they have a charging system in place. Terry, you need to copy the entire article

          Ian,

          Hitting the paywall, I got as much as I wanted to type, betting there are others who have a paid subscription. ;-)

          Whether SP makes another appearance in the article is hard to tell.  I thought this one was interesting.

          Terry

          Thanks, Terry. If I had time I would scour the 1661 entries for the likely reference... but right now things are very busy! ________________________________
