151011juniordoctorsprotest For clarity, author Richard Hutton is being satirical.

There is a need to mention this in case any BBC reporters read this article and mistake it for a genuine opinion – being so close to their own views on the subject.

I must say, I, for one, am most aggrieved by today’s strike action. If not more than a bit put out. I really think it is most unfair to inconvenience our government this way; along with a number of patients in the process, perhaps, should they be at all necessary for us to consider here.

It wouldn’t have happened in my youth: nevermind a 70 hour week – I worked a 70 hour day during my junior years, as an up-and-coming salesman in the marmalade industry. If junior doctors are unwilling to take a leaf out of my book, then they might at least follow the good example set by our virtuous government ministers, who do so much for the good of the land. You never hear them complain about being overworked or underpaid. That is because they simply have better manners than to do so. Besides, when they are a bit short, they don’t go on strike and inconvenience people; they simply award themselves a pay-rise instead. A better example of conscientious probity I have yet to witness.

In fact the Health Minister, Mr Jeremy hunt himself, has been only too accommodating on this subject: adopting a variety of approaches; all while abiding by the Hypocritic oath he swore to uphold, upon entering office.
