Within an hour of the incident, on Tuesday July 28, rope-burn marks appeared around Bradley's neck - prompting his distressed family to call an ambulance.I despair, I absolutely do…
Mrs McLachlan said: "There were marks under his chin and they went right up around the back of his head, that's when we called the ambulance."
Rope burns? You called an emergency ambulance for marks on the skin, rather than take him to casualty by car or on public transport?!
But then of course, why not? It is, after all, ‘free’, isn’t it?
And this is why the NHS will always, always be a huge black hole that will swallow any money we care to throw into it….
