Young European Docs Scoff At Article About Their Luxurious Lifestyles

Young European doctors are responding to an article written in The Sun about their "lavish lifestyles," and it's pretty hilarious. 

The article, titled "Moet medics: High life of docs' leaders who are heading up NHS strike," talks about the doctors in their 20s, their luxurious vacations and how many of them are leading the charge against the National Health Society in Europe.

having their cake and eating it too,

and, perhaps worst of all, traveling through time and space. 

Yes, it's very clearly tongue-in-cheek. The young docs are using #smearthedocs to respond to The Sun's article.
