Pants on fire....

The central theme of the Government's latest argument, this time with the junior doctors, is that the lack of staff working at the weekend causes higher mortality.

This is despite many people, including Margaret McCartney, the original authors of the piece in the BMJ, the editor of the BMJ and many others saying that Jeremy Hunt's interpretation of the data was deeply flawed, and he can't make any assumptions based on this information.

Now it would seem that even the Department of Health [a.k.a the worst Department in Whitehall] have even managed to make a correct judgement.

The wheels are falling off his argument now, and what he needs to do is stop being so arrogant and naïve, and start taking advice. And stop saying things that aren't true.

Is that too much to expect?
