I, for one was delighted with our version of socialised medicine, Comrade, when watching fireworks lighting up Adelaide Oval from my ring side seat on the 8th floor of the most expensive building in the Southern Hemisphere, the new Royal Adelaide Hospital, following an appendectomy in January last year. I might start giving a stirring rendition of the Internationale on the anniversary of the occasion from now on in solidarity to the cause.
