Naivety

Nice idea but terribly naive:

The health service should be run by an independent body because the Government's health policies have failed, the leader of Britain's consultants will say today.

In a fervent appeal to take politics out of health, Dr Paul Miller, chairman of the British Medical Association consultants committee, will say that there has been "shocking incompetence" at the top and "something is going badly wrong".

The idea that politicians would give up control of an 81 billion a year budget? Just not going to happen, is it.

Oh yes it will - imagine who will staff the unelected Quangos that will run it - cosy jobs for life for "our sort" of people without all that nasty election business and accountability to the people - it is the nu-nulabour way.

Agreed with The Englishman, - the suggestion stinks as much as the centralised Stalinist structure of the NHS itself
