UK Doctors Going On Strike

Business Week reports, "U.K. Doctors Vote for Strike for First Time Since 1975".

 From the article:
U.K. doctors will stage a partial strike on June 21, the first such step since the mid-1970s, after voting for action to resist proposed changes to their pensions, the British Medical Association said.
Perhaps these ungrateful UK physicians didn't get the memo from Stanford health economist Victor Fuchs declaring that "freeing" doctors from the burdens of private practice and turning them into government employees would be like "the emancipation of slaves".
