I suppose the question is germane. Sawney Beane, truth or myth?
Good question, probably myth, perhaps based on some reality, but like many myths, grossly exaggerated.
BTW, I am not blindly defending Essex NHS in this case, I am as uneasy as everyone else here, I am just pointing out that such case aren’t exclusive to old Limeyville.
Essex Social Services (or SS if you wish lol), not NHS.
