Some are more equal than others....

I am really pleased that Prince Phillip, who I have always regarded as a bit of a national treasure, is up and on the prowl after his recent heart scare.

I am also delighted that the NHS was able to scramble a helicopter to take him to Papworth for the best treatment available in Britain.

But I must ask..... if a 90 year old bloke from a council estate had an identical problem, would he have had identical treatment? Or would he have had to go through NHS Direct before being taken by ambulance to his local General Hospital before being put on a trolley with a little note on the end of it saying "Do Not Resucitate"?

I think I know the answer to that question.
