Following on from suggestions that health board members need punishing after allegedly murdering a child, BBC Scotland persist with their National Enquirer tribute act and suggest a Scottish hospital is ‘third world’ after reports of dirty water did not kill a child but did worry the parents.
Third world? What, like the parts where contaminated drinking-water is estimated to cause 502 000 diarrhoeal deaths each year?
Or like the countries where about 80% of illnesses are linked to poor water and sanitation conditions and1 out of every 5 deaths under the age of 5 worldwide is due to a water-related disease.
They’re mostly in Africa. They really are ‘third world’. Does this mother need to read a bit more?
