How is it possible for Sir David Nicholson to keep his position and his title?
The lack of accountability with the NHS
SIR – One of the reasons that Sir David is refusing to contemplate resignation might be his belief in "jobs for life". He gave such a promise to all the staff of his first NHS trust in the late Eighties.
But in case Idle was to get carried away by his own journalistic brilliance, Stephen Glover makes a much more important point in the Mail:
This Tory-led Government has missed the opportunity of placing the blame squarely on Labour for its past mistakes, and it finds itself in the absurd position of being associated with shameful events over which it had absolutely no control. You can’t score a more monumentally stupid political own goal than that.
