Grim little sign of the times. Two news stories about the NHS, in different parts of the paper, but they sure as hell add up. 7,000 staff laid off, and £5 million spent on lawyer’s fees. When Cameron says no top-down reorganisation, what he actually means is that he wants to sack nurses and use the money to pay lawyers. And this is the gang who claim to be solving our problems through austerity. Happy New Year, everyone.
