Socialised medicine...

...it's about procedures... not results...

Coroners are refusing to test for an infection which causes vCJD - despite government pleas that it could help protect the public, the BBC has learnt.

The Coroners' Society of England and Wales has told officials that if they were to request consent from relatives to carry out research it would compromise their neutrality and breach the trust they have built up with the public.

Imagine that government employees run the country, make decisions, feel free to ignore or countermand the officials elected by the population. Who knew that could ever happen?

not exactly a ringing endorsement of government-run services.
