Re - "I'm Alright Jack"
I'M ALRIGHT JACKNot having been fortunate enough to have the experience 'in the way of years' as Mr. Breslin, I can only talk about the time that I have been at this Hospital 6 years - during that time I have seen changes - many, and for the better; not as many as one would like but then - whoever attains perfection in our work? We can only strive for it and in the meantime do the best with what we have personally if in that time I considered that my 'Bourgeois Masters' were assigning me a major role in the dehumanisation of patients, I could no longer stay. In fact, I can't see how Mr. Breslin, if he really believes that, can accept his pay. I note with interest that these 'aliens' in our country, who seem to enjoy knocking it, only become aliens when doing so, but do not complain when enjoying the same rights and privileges as we 'Patriots'.
Edith WhiteIf, as "I'm alright Jack" says and admits he is an alien, which for some unknown reason we soft British do not say they are, the "Bogs" must be a haven of rest and luxury not just for patients but for himself included. This self-opinionated article must have been written with the author's tongue in cheek; progress is forward not backward. Our colleagues, doctors, solicitors etc., only become our bourgeois masters and elite when we ourselves suffer from an inferiority complex. Education is a great leveller and your arguments in relation to class distinction do not hold. As you well know Hospital Management is made up of non-class managers. So. Comrade Alient, throw your Encyclopaedia Britannica away, come off your high donkey, take off your dark glasses, look at things in perspective and in a more logical way and then more than likely we will all be friends - bourgeois masters, patients and staff alike.
