Jeremy Hunt – what a miserable excuse for a government minister!

Today he was challenged by his counterpart in the Labour Party, Jon Ashworth, to explain his utter failure to reach waiting time targets in Accident and Emergency departments.

The only time a Conservative Government intent on starving the NHS of resources will ever manage to see people within four hours of their arrival at A&E is after those in the greatest need have died while waiting to be seen.

He trotted out a lot of twaddle about more people being seen than during Labour’s time in government – hard to believe as the difference in the numbers is so great and – of course – Jeremy Hunt has been closing A&E departments.

And he said the NHS would achieve the four-hour waiting time target next year.

Next year? After the general election and if the Tories win? That’ll be convenient, won’t it?

The only time a Conservative Government intent on starving the NHS of resources will ever manage to see people within four hours of their arrival at A&E is after those in the greatest need have died while waiting to be seen.

So Mr Hunt is saying he thinks his incompetence will have killed off the people who most need the NHS, sometime during 2018. See for yourself:

We need better than this.

We need a government that will take the NHS back into the public domain.

We need an administration that will take all the public money that is going into private health companies’ bank accounts and use it to treat patients instead.

We need a Labour government. And we need it now.
