Hunt – ‘Do as I say not as I do’

So, dear Jeremy Hunt thinks the BMA have whipped up the junior doctors.

Others may feel, the only person doing any whipping up is Jeremy.

Could it be that, junior doctors, many of whom already work beyond their contracted hours, realise their cut in hours will be in theory only, but their cut in salary will be very real?

One wonders how much Jeremy earns, as a minister with special responsibility, in addition to the basic salary for MPs of £74, 000?

Then, of course, there are those expenses claims.

Doctors have to find some of their own time and money to keep abreast of medical advances, whereas MPs will often use researchers, which they can claim on expenses.

The Conservatives preach cuts and austerity, but not to themselves it would seem.

A perfect example of do as I say, not do as I do.
