Westminster Polticians More Summer Reading! Her work on this is very, very good. It is because Pollock is only telling half the story.
She does name the occasional sinner, the odd Top Doctor who has encouraged and personally benefited from privatisation, such as the odious Dr Chai Patel.
He is far from the only one Allyson as you well know. There is not a mention of the fact that actually the NHS for a very long time has been dogged by scandals in which patients suffered greatly and were known to be suffering but no-one acted. It is New Labour into whom Allyson really puts the boot — she hates them.
Those stage shows were essentially a series of sketches in which the Top Doctors patted themselves on the back and sneered at patients for all being a bit ignorant or neurotic.
Bevan of course admitted that he was forced into doing this in order to get the Top Doctors to accept the idea of the NHS.
Again and again Allyson portrays these very wealthy people with interests in private practice who ignored the wrongdoing of their colleagues as selfless barefoot doctors. However did anyone come to that conclusion?
The canteen staff or the porters? It was not that the Top Doctors were taking a principled stand against privatisation. Unfortunately the Tories tried to fight the Top Doctors by giving huge power to an equally toxic group of people — NHS senior managers.
It was not a good idea and for years now a full-on battle has raged between these two groups who are substantially made up of shites. A few years ago I was friends with a newly qualified law graduate who landed himself a job in the management offices of Ysbyty Gwynedd.
Mary was effectively hounded out by the Top Doctors and Martin et al. The last thing that a bunch of unscrupulous, abusive Top Doctors lining their own pockets want is a high calibre senior manager.
Allyson is being somewhat economical with the truth here. Allyson wrote that book in She is still there. She mentions going to dinner with a merchant banker before the election of New Labour to discuss PFIs I wonder why Allyson was doing that? I remember those rows of terraces in Tooting as well — I lived in one of them.Fuchsia Dunlop is a cook and food-writer specialising in Chinese cuisine.
