Get Them Fell In

Waugh, Auberon
August 1976
National Review;8/20/1976, Vol. 28 Issue 31, p900
The article comments on various issues in Great Britain. It points out the increasing proportion of Black nurses in British mental hospitals and contends that this is so because the English are not prepared to undertake the challenges of psychiatric nursing. It describes the 20-25 age group in England and gives a reason why this age group is idle, ignorant, incurious, selfish and timid. Finally, it states that the English electorate would soon realize why their desires are not economically viable.
