The ever dependable Doc Crippen explains exactly why CPO Commissar Hewitt is lying when she claims the government's waiting list targets are being met.
According to him the targets are being met only in the sense that "waiting" has been redefined to exclude most forms of actual waiting. So for example, queuing to get onto the waiting list doesn't count as waiting.
Remember- when Pat or Tony or anyone else next appears on telly claiming the targets have been met, scrutinise their pants very carefully for scorch marks.
PS I keep urging the Doc to stay safe. Can't imagine the Commissar's thought police are best pleased about his excellent and shocking blog.
