Just been reading about the joys of having dim bulb pointy-haired boss Tony Ryall back in charge of health at The Dim-Post, NRT and MacDoctor. NRT is particularly good on why Ryall's pronouncements on A&E are crap. Anyone who's worked in management (hell, anyone who reads Dilbert) knows how managers respond to these kind of arbitrary performance measurement decrees.
It's a handy reminder that you can't get better govt by replacing the current failures with previous failures. As a chronic gimp, I'm a regular consumer in the health system. No matter what complaints my No Minister colleagues may have had about the health system under the last govt, I can assure them as a regular customer that my personal experiences of it were vastly improved under Labour, and the system under Ryall constituted a low point. I fully expect new lows to be achieved in the next few years, unless Key gets serious about stripping the dead wood out of his Cabinet.
