Blame for NHS was unfair, Lynn News letters

By Lynn News Reporter

I appreciate that when your entire self-worth is tied to the promotion of one political party it must be almost impossible to construct a letter which fails to have a peevish stab at your supposed enemies across the political divide.

I was disappointed to read Ms Rust’s letter on Tuesday, December 4, where she typically managed to lay the blame for the dire state of our QEH at the feet of Henry Bellingham’s party.

But it’s not entirely true is it Jo? If it were true, then every other NHS trust in the UK would be in the same boat and equally failing, but they aren’t.

More money would undoubtedly help the QEH but there is a strong suggestion that the management structure isn’t up to running the hospital and unless Jo is suggesting there’s a political element within their management team I’d say it was disingenuous of her to misuse her political bias on this occasion.

For the avoidance of doubt I have no political sympathies for the left, right or centre and consider the antics of the political parties to be a massively negative force in our society which does real damage to the man in the street and our society in general and I resent the fact that Jo climbed onto her political soapbox on this occasion.
