Its Unpatriotic To Criticize The NHS
Do you remember the furore over Dan Hannan saying that we needed a complete rethink on the NHS whilst in America, and telling the Americans not to emulate the NHS ?
The situation is so bad at Basildon and Thurrock that a 'special measures; team has been flown in to sort out the high mortality rate, the blood spattered wards and the high cross infection rate.
In a case of 'who is watching the watchers', this was the hospital quango that was give a 'good' by the inspecting Quango and 13/14 for cleanliness.
In Nu Labour's Britain reality should never get in the way of the tractor stats.
I have just listened to some Scottish Quangocrat on R4, trying to defend the indefensible, whilst rubbishing private research that was factually correct.
You get to become a highly paid Quangocrat, by appeasing your political masters, irrespective of the facts on the ground, irrespective of reality, irrespective of the damage and deaths caused, irrespective of the cost to the taxpayer.
It is exactly how Brown is running the war in Afghanistan and exactly why the State is bloated and incompetent.
Just because what you are saying is unpopular with the Government, it does not make you wrong. Where are all the pundits defending the slovenly NHS this morning.
Medical Staff are just like the Squaddies, trying to keep the faith, trying to do their best, but at the end of the day they are both propping up a collapsing and corrupt system.
