Re: Roger Martin - trial

Samuel Pepys witnessed the execution of Major-General Harrison: 'I went out to Charing Cross to see Major General Harrison hanged, drawn, and quartered; which was done there, he looking as cheerful as any man could in that condition.'

Any reason why?
I wasn't advised of the reason. There are a couple of possibilities.

Re: How will CH cope with Brexit?

I welcome professionally qualified EU Nationals into Britain. Our Health Service would collapse without them. I spoke to many of them during my 3 recent hospital visits.
