It’s all going wrong for ‘Germy’, isn’t it?
He just isn’t very good at ‘spin’, it seems.
Also, of course, he should probably have realised – before he started trying to hoodwink members of the medical profession – that you have to be quite intelligent to become a doctor in the first place, so seeing the discrepancy in ‘Germy’s wage figures will have been child’s play to them.
And this is one of those cases in which you can blame him for trying. He should have known this gambit would never work.
One supposes this says more about his own intelligence than about the situation he is failing to misrepresent.
Jeremy Hunt has said that if he were a junior doctor represented by the BMA he too would be joining protests against plans to impose a new weekend-working contract.
Reiterating claims that the doctors’ union was “misleading” its members over the planned reforms, the health secretary said he could understand how thousands of medics had been convinced to oppose the contract.
The health secretary, who continued to defend the plans by claiming they would not make junior doctors worse off, made his comments as thousands prepared to march in London on Saturday.
